Patrick Reed won the WGC-Mexico

American Golfer Patrick Reed ignored the scandal to focus on playing and then crowned at the PGA Tour, WGC-Mexico Championship at -18 on February 23.

Besides the pressure to compete with the big stars, Reed also suffered a mental burden right before the tournament in Mexico. It was then that Brooks Koepka gave an interview with SiriusXM and reiterated the allegations of Reed cheating when he hit the ball from the wasteland on the Hero World Challenge two months ago. Then, former CBS analyst Peter Kostis also helped with the number two golfer in the world.

However, Reed remained silent, focusing only on the challenges of Chapultepec, par71. Then the 29-year-old golfer responded with a steady performance while the other stars were erratic.

In the cup competition, Reed started in the final group at position T2 with a score of -14, and had a birdie in the entry hole. In the first half, up to four people shared the top spot. But Bryson DeChambeau competed in the penultimate group to break through with five birdies through six holes, starting at the 9th hole. He scored 10 consecutive par points, from hole 2 to hole 11.

At the end of Hole 14, DeChambeau took the lead with two strokes. However, the golfer nicknamed “Crazy Doctor” misses the opportunity to increase the gap because of birdie sliding at holes 15 and 16. Next, DeChambeau took up to three putt to be able to finish hole 17, par3 with bogey. This drop of club also shattered his advantage.

Meanwhile, Reed still lurched forward, starting with holding the par to not fall further, by putting three meters in hole 11 and 2.4 meters in hole 13. From hole 15 to hole 17 , Reed constantly recorded birdie. Leaving the penultimate green pit, he took a two-stroke lead in his hand.

In hole 18, par4, Reed tackles the tree and is just a chip away from the fairway. Next, he put the ball on the green, 10.6 meters from the crater and then took two putt to finish the hole at the bogey p oint, just enough to win with a stroke difference. In eight PGA Tour cups, seven times Reed won with this advantage. The trophy at Chapultepec earned Reed $ 1.82 million and ranked eighth in the world.

DeChambeau finished in front of Reed at -17, finished second and received $ 1.15 million. He went to green hole 18 to congratulate his seniors over three years old. “He fought hard and finally defeated me. It was a deserved victory,” said DeChambeau.

Jon Rahm and Van Rooyen shared the third spot with a score of -15, and each earned $ 600,000. World’s number one McIlroy reached -14, closing in the top 5 overall, getting $430,000.

Winning in the humiliation Hero World Challenge is still shady, Reed said: “I am used to it. To be honest, in the end, the important thing is to control yourself and the things on the field and on the field. “Trying to improve day by day and to set an example for the next generation is my dedication. I think I do it well.”

At the Hero World Challenge, the camera captures Reed twice using the sand head to facilitate a shot from the wasteland. Reed accepted to be fined two sticks after the above situation and explained that “the angle of rotation affects the truth”. That was the only time he publicly defended.

Gomes returned to Everton after a serious injury

Midfielder Andre Gomes was launched in the match between Arsenal and Everton, marking the return after just 4 months of treating an ankle fracture.
59 minutes into the match between Everton and Arsenal in the 27th Premier League, Andre Gomes was coached by coach Carlo Ancelotti. The moment Gomes stepped into the Emirates grass lawn was much welcomed by many fans. Just 4 months ago, Gomes suffered a very serious injury after hitting Son Heung-min on the ball.

In nearly 30 minutes on the pitch, Andre Gomes made 28 passes, achieving an accuracy rate of 89%. The Portuguese player is wide-ranging and actively disputes with the opponent. Gomes had an opportunity to clear the Arsenal defense in the 89th minute, giving Dominic Calvert-Lewin the opportunity to face the keeper but the Everton striker was not fast enough to finish the goal.

In addition to that phase, Gomes has many passing situations that open up opportunities for teammates. He received a yellow card in stoppage time after a tactical foul, countering the opponent’s counterattack. Gomes’ efforts were not enough to help Everton escape the 2-3 defeat against hosts Arsenal.

Gomes’ injury came in a match between Everton and Tottenham on November 3. The cause of the situation above came from a dispute between two players that Son said he was badly playing by the opponent.

Son then sought to retaliate. 79 minutes, Son mixed the ball from behind was very malicious with Gomes. The Portuguese midfielder fell, lost his momentum and rushed into the nearby defender, Serge Aurier. It was the rush to the opponent that Gomes broke his ankle, had to breathe oxygen and go to emergency.

Gomes’ injury made the fans scared. However, he recovered very quickly from injury and trained with his teammates since January. By the match against Arsenal on February 23, Gomes was back.

Son cried after the ball and the opponent broke his leg. The striker received a direct red card and was suspended for 3 matches, but was later suspended by the Premier League organizers.

Rivaldo: ‘Messi will not go to Man City or Juventus’

Former player Rivaldo believes in the possibility of Lionel Messi staying in Barca for many more years, despite the instability problems at the Nou Camp.

“I don’t believe in speculations about Messi being able to leave Barca at the end of the season,” Rivaldo predicted. He has been a Barca member since he was 14 years old. He has great feelings for the club and the club too. I don’t think he will. I’m happy to leave.

The former striker who played for Barca during 1997-2002 emphasized: “It’s hard to imagine Messi facing Barca in the Champions League. I think even if he leaves in the future, Messi will play outside Europe. Europe, in China or MLS, with transfers being driven by financial reasons rather than sports. “

Rumors of a possible Messi leaving Barca began to rage when he responded to criticism by Sports Director Eric Abidal, who said some players did not do their best under former coach Ernesto Valverde. Man City and Juventus are two of the clubs most linked to the owners of the six Golden Balls. While Man City has a financial fulcrum, Juventus may also want to combine Messi with Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Rivaldo does not appreciate these possibilities: “Messi can play at any club in the world, but, as Pep Guardiola has said recently, Messi should continue to play for Barca.

In the last three matches, Messi has not scored for Barca. But in return, he has five road ahead in bringing two victories. Rivaldo reassured: “Messi has not scored in three matches, and many commentators are talking about the problem at Barca. However, I do not think so. We will soon see Messi scoring again. Barca has back to winning, as we see from the Betis 3-2 win in La Liga Messi has provided assists and it is important that he plays a central role in the attacks. Messi’s passing skills are very important in creating chances. His level is undeniable. I don’t see any reason to worry. “

The trend of young champions winning Grand Slam

Success at the young level is not necessarily the basis for winning the Grand Slam, but that seems to be becoming a trend in women’s tennis.

Gifted athletes have a good starting point. In fact, competing with competitors of the same age in the youth tournament is completely different when entering the path of professional competition. In the past, there were many young tennis players who held the number one position in the world or had won the Grand Slam Youth Championship, but were unsuccessful in professional tournaments.

But recently, that has changed, especially in women’s tennis, with some Grand Slam champions coming up from success in the youth tournaments. Sofia Kenin is the latest evidence. Russian-American girl acquainted with the racket from a very young age. At the age of 6, she had the opportunity to meet and talk with idol Kim Clijsters in 2005. As a teenager, Kenin has achieved many successes, especially in America.

Kenin used to be the number two young player in the world and won the U18 USA. In addition, she reached the final of the 2015 US Open, winning a special ticket to the main round at Flushing Meadows that year. However, Kenin lost to the Hungarian Dalma Galfi in that final. But for now, while Kenin is first in the top 10 in the world, Galfi is ranked 269th on the WTA rankings. The 2015 US Open youth champion also lost to Tereza Mrdeza in the ITF semi-final which took place in Florida two weeks ago.

Kenin’s victory in Melbourne Park extends the list of young players who have successfully conquered the Grand Slam. Bianca Andreescu, the current US Open champion, is also one of them. The 19-year-old Canadian has ranked third in the world in the world youth rankings, played two Grand Slam semi-finals and won two Grand Slam titles in the youth doubles competition. Ashleigh Barty, champion of Roland Garros 2019, was also crowned at the Wimbledon Youth Championship at the age of 15 and was once the number two young player in the world.

Simona Halep – the champion of Roland Garros 2018 and Wimbledon 2019 – is equally good, although it takes more time than Kenin, Barty or Andreescu to assert themselves in the professional playing field. Former Romanian number one youngster won the 2008 Roland Garros youth championship. But it was not until ten years later that Halep made a professional-level breakthrough with the first Grand Slam on the clay court in Paris. .

Caroline Wozniacki is a similar case to Halep. She used to be the number two young player in the world and won the Wimbledon Youth Championship in 2006, but experienced many ups and downs to get rid of the nickname “Queen without Grand Slam” when she took the throne in the Australian Open 2018. Denmark announced retirement at the age of 29 after stopping in the third round of this year’s tournament.

Barca emphasizes style, Real only needs the title

Through the first matches of 2020, Real Madrid is showing the effectiveness of changing the style from florid to pragmatic.

When defeating Valladolid 1-0 in La Liga last Sunday, no Real member could leave with a good memory except defender Nacho – the only goal scorer. In fact, Nacho is not too proud of what he can do. His goal was only salvation in an unattractive match, where Real was nothing better than the 15th place team. It was also not beautiful enough to remember long, when it was just a simple header.

But that match shows the new philosophy of Real. Zidane’s teachers and students do not need to play beautifully, only need efficiency and titles. They are succeeding with this philosophy by taking three points more than defending champion Barca.

When Zidane regained the torn Real ship during the disastrous 2018-2019 season, Zidane understood that he was facing an unprecedented reconstruction mission. In addition to his weak experience in rebuilding a team, he still lacks many good players with high performance, good age … to bring stability. As a result, they changed their philosophy and focused more on the results. Zidane is aware that, no matter how beautiful he plays, the plan will be broken and he will have to leave if Real does not win anything this season.

Supporters are also tending to support Zidane’s change. They are not interested in Real struggling to win against Valladolid, the picture is the opposite of the win time of six, or seven goals as when Cristiano Ronaldo, but they are willing to ignore all problems if the team ends with the title. champion.

The victory over Valladolid is the kind of match that only historical enthusiasts can remember in a few weeks. But with Real, it is important that they have an advantage over Barca. While the rivalry is still struggling to get acquainted with the style of the new coach Quique Setien, Real has quietly moved into a favorable position to prepare to accelerate.

In recent weeks, the line of the Royal team has been almost numb. While Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard are sidelined for convalescence, Luka Jovic, Rodrygo, Vinicius and Lucas Vazquez are helpless to replace. However, with good adaptability and willingness to change, Real still has the necessary number of goals. Scorer from all front lines such as defender Nacho, Varane, or midfielder Luka Modric, Casemiro.

As a contrast, while Real needs the title to regain confidence and stability, Barca pays more attention to style. After two seasons of winning La Liga with former coach Ernesto Valverde, the Catalonia team came to Setien to restore the traditional ball control game. However, like any new coach, the initial period of acquaintance is always a difficult experience. Losing a game, scoring three goals, conceding two goals in the first three matches is the result that Barca must accept.

In fact, he hasn’t played any matches since November last year.

In an interview with a radio channel in Melbourne (Australia), Federer admitted Nadal and Djokovic were still the most difficult obstacles, but he was confident in his ability to take the 7th throne at the Australian Open, thereby leveling the century. Djokovic’s championship record:

Besides, Federer also took time to talk about Ashleigh Barty – the No. 1 female tennis player in the world.

She reached the quarter-finals of the Australian Open at home, the fourth round of Wimbledon and the US Open, the highest peak was the championship of Roland Garros.

This title helped Barty become the first Australian to win the single category in clay Grand Slam since 1973 (Margaret Court), the first Australian to crown a single Grand Slam since 2011 (Samantha Stosur) ). After the Birmingham Classic in June, the 23-year-old officially rose to No. 1 WTA.

According to Federer, to maintain the current peak, Barty needs to make different decisions to help himself reach his full potential:

That’s what happened to me from winning my first title to reaching No. 1 in the world. After that, in my mind I always think ‘I’m born to conquer, I prefer to become the number 1 position of the challenger’.
