Roger Federer stages amazing comeback to beat Marin Cilic

first_imgRoger Federer staged an amazing comeback on Centre Court to beat Marin Cilic in four sets, 6-7 4-6 6-3 7-6 6-3.He fought back from two sets down and saved three match points to secure himself a place in the Wimbledon semi-finals – the eleventh time he has reached that stage in the competition.It was Federer’s 307th win in a grand slam – breaking Martina Navratilova’s long-standing record.Cilic stood one point away from victory three times in a pulsating fourth set that had everyone on the edge of their seats.Three huge serves kept Federer alive – just – and he then produced the kind of form, and outrageous shots, that has made him the most successful man in tennis by stealing the tiebreak 11-9.An ace on his first match point finished off the job and carried him into a 40th major semi-final, where he will face Milos Raonic for a place in Sunday’s final. “I knew I was in so much trouble in the third and again in the fourth,” Federer said after walking off Centre Court to a standing ovation.”It wasn’t going well for me. So for me it was about staying in the match and somehow hope for his level to drop … and maybe get a bit lucky. That’s exactly what happened at 3-3, 0-40 (in the third set),” added Federer about the game where he saved three break points.”Obviously the breaker was crazy. It was an incredible match. Marin is one of the nicest guys on the tour so I feel sorry for him but for me the dream continues.”Having missed last month’s French Open with a back injury, the five set thriller also delivered a knockout punch to those thinking the Swiss third seed did not have the stamina to last the distance.”It’s really encouraging for me to see that I am improving. As the match goes on, I was able to sustain a really high level of play,” added the 34-year-old, who came back from two-sets down for the 10th time in his career. “My legs were there, my back was there, serving was key. Plus mentally this is going to give me a hell of a boost. I am ecstatic that I was able to come through somehow.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.

Lakers’ LeBron James to launch ‘More Than a Vote’ to energize voters, combat voter suppression

first_imgCalifornia Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted a quote from LeBron James on Wednesday night: “This is the time for us to finally make a difference,” adding the hashtag: #VOTE.The tweet was in reference to a New York Times story detailing the Lakers superstar’s plans to launch a voting initiative aimed at protecting African-Americans’ voting rights.James reportedly will partner with other figures from the basketball world and beyond on a project that will be aimed at inspiring African-Americans to register and to cast a ballot in November. Others involved reportedly include Trae Young, Eric Bledsoe, Udonis Haslem, Chiney Ogwumike, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Kendrick Perkins, Sam Perkins, Jalen Rose, as well as the NFL’s Alvin Kamara and comedian Kevin Hart.Going beyond traditional celebrity get-out-the-vote efforts, James told the Times that he’ll use his social media platform to combat voter suppression and that he intends to be vocal about drawing attention to any attempts to restrict the franchise of racial minorities.

We don’t know. But we feel like we’re getting some ears and some attention, and this is the time for us to finally make a difference.”“This is the time for us to finally make a difference.” – @KingJames#VOTE https://t.co/vcwehckNLb— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) June 11, 2020 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years center_img “Following his storied NBA career, Bryant continued to inspire others with his passion, purpose and goodwill through countless charitable contributions in the greater Los Angeles and Southern California communities,” the Television Academy said in its release. “He championed a number of worthy causes and critical issues, becoming an ambassador for women’s basketball, a mentor and youth advocate, and raised awareness of homelessness in Los Angeles.”The award will be presented at the 72nd Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards, which will be streamed at 7 p.m. July 18 on Emmys.com.
