Djokovic defeat opens the door for Murray in Melbourne

first_img Submit Betway and Dafabet grow La Liga sponsorship portfolios August 14, 2020 Related Articles StumbleUpon Share ESI Digital – No Drama Please… Esports growth should be treated as business as usual  August 20, 2020 SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Share Novak Djokovic’s surprise five-set defeat to Denis Istomin in the second round of the Australian Open has opened the door for Andy Murray to claim a first title in Melbourne.The five-time beaten finalist and world number one is now odds on with the bookmakers to lift the trophy in the Rod Laver Arena on 29 January.However, it is not only Murray that has profited from the Serb’s earliest Australian Open exit since 2006. We caught up with William Hill’s Rupert Adams, Ladbrokes’ Richard Marsh and Betway’s Alan Alger to get their take on the outright tournament market, and find out which players have been shortened the most in light of his defeat.Rupert Adams, Media Relations Manager for William Hill, said: “What was a two-horse race now looks like a one-horse race, with Andy in to 4/5 from 11/8. That said, there is a chance we will see money for Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the next couple of days, so we could be in for cracking betting heat.”Richard Marsh of Ladbrokes News confirmed that over £3,500 was staked on Murray within three hours of Djokovic’s exit, with Milos Raonic dropping from 16/1 to 6/1, Rafael Nadal from 16/1 to 10/1 and Stanislas Wawrinka to 8/1 from 20/1 earlier in the week.Marsh added: “Nobody foresaw Djokovic’s defeat this morning, but it’s an ace for Murray whose path to a first Australian Open title has just become a whole lot easier. Djoko’s exit has not only blown the tournament wide open, but it’s launched the betting into a frenzy too, with Murray, Raonic, Wawrinka and Nadal all being backed to the hilt.”Alan Alger, PR Manager for Betway, commented: “Novak Djokovic being knocked out of the Australian Open is one of the best results in the book so far for 2017, but Sir Andy Murray can take the shine off that. Murray is always well supported in the betting and those who punted him at pre-tournament odds of 13/8 will be sitting pretty.“The Scot is now odds-on at 5/6 and pretty much every penny gained from Djokovic’s loss looks set to be handed back out if he lands his first Aussie Open. As for those creeping into contention off the back of Djokovic’s shock exit, Rafael Nadal has been hot in the betting. We cut him from 16/1 to 12/1 on Thursday morning, but that wasn’t short enough for punters who have backed him into 10/1.“Interest in backing joint second favourites Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic at 13/2 has been mediocre, as it seems punters are preferring to take monster prices on the likes of Dominic Thiem (66/1 into 33/1) and Alexander Zverev (80/1 into 40/1).”last_img read more

Bengals reportedly release Andy Dalton, paving way for Joe Burrow as Day 1 starter

first_imgDalton will finish his Bengals career as the franchise’s career leader in passing touchdowns (204). He also finished second in passing yards (31,594) and completion percentage among quarterbacks with at least 1,000 attempts (62.0).His release saves $17.5 million in base salary for the Bengals in the 2020 season.POWER RANKINGS:Buccaneers, Bills join top tier; Patriots, Bears fall behind after 2020 draft With Dalton’s release, Burrow is almost assuredly going to be the Bengals’ starter at quarterback from Day 1, considering the only other quarterbacks on the roster are former N.C. State quarterback Ryan Finley and Jake Dolegala of Central Connecticut State.Burrow’s 2019 season certainly warrants that confidence; he completed one of the greatest individual seasons in the history of college football, throwing for 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns while rushing for 369 yards and adding five more scores. He led LSU to its first ever College Football Playoff championship and its first national title since 2007, winning the Heisman Trophy en route.It seems that was more than enough for the Bengals to think he can handle being thrown in the fire right away. The Bengals are releasing quarterback Andy Dalton, per a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter — a move that would indicate Cincinnati is all-in on Joe Burrow being a Day 1 starter.Dalton, a second-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, spent his entire nine years in the NFL with the Bengals. He compiled a 70-61-2 record in Cincinnati, leading the team to the playoffs in each of his first five seasons (2011-15) with four double-digit win seasons. That success diminished greatly in the latter half of his tenure, however: Cincinnati never won more than six games in a season from 2016-19 and missed the postseason each year.last_img read more

Music van de Caab keeps Khoi and San music alive

(Image: Solms-Delta) • Solms-Delta lives a transformation ethos • Gallery: South Africa’s rich and colourful heritage • Using the arts to build an inclusive South Africa • South African music • The history of South AfricaNdaba DlaminiThe Solms Delta wine estate in Franschhoek, in the Western Cape, goes by a tag line that says the farm is much more than just a wine estate. True to its word, Solms-Delta does not only produce classical wines, but classical music as well.The wine estate is located in the picturesque Franschhoek Valley, a valley dominated by imposing mountains and spectacular vineyard vistas. Many centuries gone by, the natural beauty of the valley may have struck many a San or Khoi musician, compelling them to come up with a song or two marvelling at the scene. Music van de CaabToday, the musical rustle of the grapevine leaves may lend credence that long-gone San and Khoi musicians may be strumming some musical notes of yore and giving support of the Music van de Caab, a Cape music project established by Solms-Delta owner Mark Solms to revive the culture and spirit of the original dwellers of Franschhoek Valley. School children are taught to play various musical instruments by music teachers at the Cape Rural Music Centre. (Image: Solms-Delta)When Solms bought the farm in 2001 he realised that he has to do quite a lot to address the social and economic inequalities of the farm workers around the Cape Winelands. After a lot of research, he decided to establish a trust which he called the Wijn de Caab Trust that would provide financial assistance for education at all levels, private healthcare and assist those in distress.The Cape Rural Music CentreIn 2007, with the help of local musician Alex van Heerden, the Trust initiated a Cape music project with the aim of creating a sense of inclusivity among the Winelands community. The Cape Rural Music Centre, after much research, was built at Solms Delta Wine Estate and has managed to capture and revive the indigenous music of the different cultures of the Winelands. Children from the Cape Rural Music Centre perform at the Solms-Delta Harvest Festival. (Image: Solms-Delta)Rich musical heritageMany cultures have contributed to the heritage of Franschhoek Valley. The original inhabitants – the San and the Khoi – were long ago joined by other groups from all corners of the world. The resultant blending of cultures has produced a rich musical heritage which the children attending the Cape Rural Music Centre are attempting to revive. The Franschhoek Valley is renowned for its rich musical culture which has a heavy San and Khoi influence. (Image: Solms-Delta)Learning to play musicMost days after school, children from Solms-Delta Wine Estate and surrounding wine farms converge at the centre to attend classes run by music teachers. All children are provided with instruments to play and take care of as their own. They learn to play the guitar, the trumpet, the trombone and the ghoema drum. To top it all, they also learn music theory, how music is written through notation and codes. A child learns music notation and code at the Cape Rural Music Centre. (Image: Solms-Delta)Oesfees FestivalAfter much lots of learning writing music, blowing on trombones and banging of drums, children at the music centre prepare each year for the Solms-Delta Harvest Festival, or Oesfees Festival, where they are given the platform to rub shoulders with seasoned musicians on stage. The festival is a celebration of the music of the Cape and draws people from the Western Cape and beyond. The Oesfees Festival is a celebration of Cape music and features music groups from the Franschhoek Valley and surrounds. (Image: Solms-Delta)Museum van de CaabMuseum van de Caab tells the story of Delta Farm, well before Solms bought the wine estate. It tells the history of Delta Farm, starting from the very beginnings of human settlement on the farm, through pre-colonial pastoral usage of the land, the establishment of private ownership through colonial viticulture, the scars left by slavery and apartheid until the present day. It also tells the stories of individual farm workers, giving the original dwellers, the San and Khoi – a living face. Visitors to the Museum van de Caab can discover the origins of Cape music through interative displays. (Image: Solms-Delta)Recently, a musical exhibition opened at the Museum van de Caab featuring touch-screens showing interactive displays. Each interactive displays has its own audio, and a display case containing instruments such as the bow lute and an oil-tin blik kitaar is on show. The musical exhibition traces the origins of Cape music, particularly the music of the Khoi and San. Khoi and San musical instruments like leg rattles made from Springbok ears or moth cocoons are also showcased.The museum is open seven days a week and admission is free.

Teenage shooter awaits gun license to participate in Asian Cup

first_imgChandigarh, Jul 26 (PTI) A teenage shooter from Haryana is struggling to procure a gun licence to import the weapon from Germany in time and take part in youth Asian cup at Indonesia in September. The 15-year-old girl hailing from Jhajjar, Manu Bhaker, has claimed to have completed all necessary formalities for procuring the gun license. “My daughter has been selected in the junior national team to take part in the youth Asian championship in September this year in Indonesia. She will be competing in the U-19 category in two events,” her father Ramkishan said over the phone. “While she does not require a license in the 10m category, but to be able to participate in 25m shooting event, she needs to procure her own pistol and needs a licence for the sports pistol,” he said. Ramkishan claimed they had applied for the license in May and the file is now lying in the office of Deputy Commissioner, who is away for a training program. “After receiving a communication from National Rifle Association of India about her selection for the Indonesia event, we applied for the license in May. To procure license, we had to apply in the Jhajjars Deputy Commissioners office,” he said. “Our file for licence, meanwhile, was sent to the Superintendent of Polices office in Jhajjar, who gave his recommendation and necessary clearance on June 27-28. Since then the file is lying in Deputy Commissioners office as we were told that he is away on training programme,” he claimed. Ramkishan said that his daughter, who is a Class X student, has to procure the gun on rent from Germany and the procedure takes about 6-7 weeks, which will only begin once the licence is given. “We only want that the procedure should be expidited and licence issued at the earliest,” he said. He said the girl is a budding shooter and was also part of the Haryana team in a championship held in December last year in Pune. Meanwhile, Jhajjars Deputy Commissioner was said to be on a training programme till August 11. Jhajjars Additional Deputy Commissioner, Amna Tasneem said that she had joined only last week and the matter has just come to her notice. “I will look into it and expedite it,” Tasneem said.

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Southampton midfielder Ward-Prowse: Sloppy defending cost Man City defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse admits they paid for “sloppy” defending in defeat to Manchester City.Saints were behind inside ten minutes when David Silva converted namesake Bernardo’s cutback, by which time the goalscorer had already been denied by a fine save from Alex McCarthy.Saints responded well and deservedly drew level through Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, but succumbed to two goals in the dying minutes of the first half that ultimately decided the game, before skipper Højbjerg was dismissed late on.“It’s a disappointing result, obviously. I think we started the game poorly and didn’t quite get into the flow of the game,” Ward-Prowse said.“I think we showed glimpses in the first half of what we’ve been working on as a team, pressing high, and the goal came from that.“I felt we were right in it, but two unlucky, sloppy goals at the end of the first half killed the game.“When you give a team like that those sorts of opportunities and chances, they’re going to run away with it, which they did.” last_img read more
