My relationship with Chrishell was and remains strictly platonic. Our friendship during our season on DWTS was not the reason for our split. Elena and I have had longstanding issues in our marriage. This has been an ongoing situation between Elena and I paired with poor timing. It was my deepest hope to keep our private life just that: private. I am saddened and disappointed to see that Elena has chosen not to do the same.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Keeping his head in the game.

“I was delighted with her run in the Guineas as it is hard to go to the race without a prep race as all the trials meant she would have had to carry a penalty. “She ran a blinder for her first run of the season and she has come on an awful lot since the Guineas. “We are very pleased with her and expect more to come.” Channon is leaning towards making the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot the next aim for Bossy Guest. Although a firm decision has yet to be made, he is favouring a shot at the seven-furlong Group Three following his impressive performance in the 2000 Guineas. After landing a sales race over six furlongs at the Rowley Mile on his comeback, the three-year old outran his 50-1 odds on his return to the track earlier this month when finishing fourth in the colts’ Classic. Channon said: “Bossy Guest run a great race in the Guineas. “His form last year was very solid and when he won the sales race on his comeback he had his ground. Press Association Mick Channon nominated the Irish 1,000 Guineas as the most likely target for Malabar following her fourth-place finish in the Newmarket Classic. The West Ilsley handler landed the Curragh Classic with Samitar in 2012 and is happy with his filly this year, who finished fourth in the Moyglare on her previous visit to Ireland. He said: “I would have thought that Malabar will now go for the Irish 1,000 Guineas as long as everything is OK. “We thought he would get the mile as he is by Medicean, so he ought to have done. “For me, he ran all the way to the line, but he does have plenty of speed. “He’s in the Commonwealth Cup, the St James’s Palace Stakes and the Jersey Stakes. “At the moment, I would favour the Jersey. He has got no penalties to carry and gets in off a decent mark so we are likely to look at that, as long as the ground is decent.”

New Delhi: On a high after a defining tour of Australia, the Virat Kohli-led Indian team faces a trickier challenge when it locks horns with an ever-so-sprightly New Zealand in a five-match ODI series starting Wednesday. The Indian team, which has shifted its focus entirely on World Cup preparations, is still searching for the right middle-order combination despite their first-ever bilateral ODI series win on Australian soil.Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s hat-trick of half-centuries has brought joy to the dressing room but the smaller grounds in New Zealand against a better seam attack comprising the wily Trent Boult, the talented Lockie Ferguson and the relentless Tim Southee will be a different test altogether for the ‘Men In Blue’.New Zealand in their own backyard have always been a force to reckon with and the touring Indian teams over the years will testify that, having won only 10 out of the 35 ODIs, including a 0-4 drubbing during the last series in 2014.Also Read | Virat Kohli creates history, becomes first cricketer to win Test, ODI and overall Player of the Year awardsThe first match at McLean Park, however, will be played in sultry conditions of around 30 degrees. Skipper Kohli is well aware that the Black Caps, with some quality players in their ranks, can be very competitive.“The fact they are No 3 in the world speaks about their consistency over the last couple of years. We played them in India and got beaten in Mumbai, and all the games were competitive and we felt they had a really good balance.“They have that energy and that buzz about them and they play their cricket in the right way which is something we always appreciate,” Kohli said at the pre-series media conference.For the Indian team, some of the issues that need to be addressed are Shikhar Dhawan’s form, Dhoni’s batting position and how to get the balance right till all-rounder Hardik Pandya comes back from suspension. Left-handed Dhawan’s position at the top of the order is under no imminent threat but a highest score of 35 in the last nine games doesn’t make a pretty picture.That Rishabh Pant has been instructed by the team management to face the new ball against England Lions in a home series is an indicator that they are trying to get back-up options ready. An immensely talented Shubman Gill has been selected as a reserve opener but it is unlikely that Dhawan will be dropped after a few failures.The No.4 position is another area of concern for India as Ambati Rayudu, after an inexplicable retirement from first-class cricket, looked completely out of sorts and is unlikely to regain his place in the side. Dhoni did well as a No.4 in the final ODI against Australia but Kohli is likely to use him more as a floater depending on match situations.With the Napier ODI promising to be a high-scoring affair as per New Zealand coach David Stead, a Dinesh Karthik or Kedar Jadhav could be promoted up the order. In the bowling department, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami will expect a bit more support in case the skipper plays a young third seamer in either Mohammed Siraj or Khaleel Ahmed.The New Zealand top-order also has a formidable look with one of the world’s best batsmen in skipper Kane Williamson and the ever-dangerous Ross Taylor, who is second only to Kohli in terms of batting averages (92) in 2018, holding forte.“We saw in the last series (vs Sri Lanka) we want to execute a few things better, certainly in the field, we want to step up and get back to our old ways which is that real attitude in the park,” Williamson said.TeamsIndia: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar, Shubman Gill, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj, Khaleel Ahmed, Ravindra Jadeja.New Zealand: Kane Williamson (captain), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Martin Guptill, Colin de Grandhomme, Trent Boult, Henry Nicholls, Doug Bracewell, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Colin Munro, Ish Sodhi, Micthell Santner, Tim Southee.

Ex-Nigeria World Cup star Mutiu Adepoju has admitted his failure to break into the Real Madrid first team was his biggest regret in over a decade of action in La Liga.He joined Real Madrid second team Castilla after the 1989 FIFA U20 World Cup in Saudi Arabia with the hope he will progress to Real, but it was not to be. “Probably, not been able to break into the Real Madrid first team would be a regret, but generally, I enjoyed my time in La Liga,” he recounted.“Today, Spain is home to my family as we have dual nationalities.”He further said that it was his exploits at Castilla that earned him a call-up to the Super Eagles.“I did well as Castilla, winning them promotion from division 2B to 2A and that was why I was invited to the Super Eagles,” he said.Mutiu will later move to Racing Santander and also won them promotion to La Liga, before he helped Real Sociedad to qualify for the UEFA Cup.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

Published on September 13, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: email@example.com | @Michael_Cohen13 For Federico Agreda, this was something completely new. Nervous and alone in the attacking half of the field, he had more than 4,500 square yards to himself. ‘It’s hard to adapt to it because you’re not used to playing by yourself,’ Agreda said. ‘You have a lot more space to control, but I’m learning. I’m getting it.’ In addition to transferring to Syracuse and adjusting to soccer at the Division I level, Agreda also had to learn an unfamiliar formation. Despite playing soccer since he was six years old, the 22-year-old forward had never lined up as the lone striker. But in first-year head coach Ian McIntyre’s 4-5-1 formation, that is exactly what he is trying to learn. And his comfort level is increasing with each game he plays. At Garden City Community College, Agreda was an NSCAA All-America First Team selection in 2009. But that was part of a drastically different coaching philosophy. That system focused heavily on possession and keeping the ball on the ground to work it up the field. McIntyre’s is basically the opposite.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘We had a lot of Hispanic players (at Garden City CC),’ Agreda said. ‘A lot of players from Argentina and Columbia, where they like the style of playing more with the ball and possession. It’s completely different how we play with (McIntyre).’ Now Agreda is learning how to become a target player for the rest of his teammates. Defenders and midfielders look to play the ball long to him, in hopes that he can control it and keep possession for his team. The longer he can hold onto the ball after receiving it, the more time he allows his teammates to come up in support. ‘When the ball comes up to you, it has to stick,’ junior midfielder Nick Roydhouse said. ‘Pretty much the majority of attacks go through that one player, and in terms of doing well attacking-wise, you really need that one player to have a good touch, hold up and be strong.’ To an extent, that seemed to work this weekend during Syracuse’s second-place finish at the Mayor’s Cup in Oneonta, N.Y. In Sunday’s 2-0 loss to Columbia, Roydhouse and fellow midfielder Mark Brode combined for seven of the Orange’s 10 total shots. Although the team failed to score, Agreda was doing his job. Roydhouse explained the lone striker can function in two ways to help the Syracuse attack. The first dictates that he receives the ball and immediately lays it off to the midfielders for shots on goal. Through the first four games for the Orange, this has been the most prevalent use of the striker. Twenty-three of SU’s 26 shots this season have come from non-strikers. ‘Most of it is just kind of holding on top so we can get midfield players (up there), and they can have shots and chances at goal,’ Agreda said. But eventually, production will have to come from the forwards. To win games, the Orange can’t just rely on its midfield to put the ball in the back of the net. That has been the story through the first four games, and SU has just two goals and one win to show for it. McIntyre has shuffled three others players in and out of that striker position. Brett Jankouskas, Fredrik Forsman and L.J. Papaleo are all seeing time up front. Agreda has gotten the start in all four games this season, but his production is still not where it needs to be. One shot on goal isn’t enough. ‘We’re looking to develop a fluid attack,’ McIntyre said. ‘The real question is who is going to score us those goals. Ultimately, forward players are evaluated on the kind of effect they have in games.’ So far, just Jankouskas has gotten his name in the scoring column from the striker position, doing so in the second half against Siena in the first game of the season. With two games left before Big East play opens on Sept. 25, the Orange will have to find a scoring threat. It needs to have a player opponents must game plan around. Agreda wants that to be him. ‘I’ve been trying so hard, and not scoring goals is something that I can get frustrated (over),’ he said. ‘It gets in my head. But when I score my first goal, I’m just going to go crazy.’ firstname.lastname@example.org Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments
The No. 2 USC men’s tennis team is two steps closer to a three-peat this weekend, snagging consecutive home wins to move on to the third round of the NCAA championships.Tough road · Junior Daniel Nguyen looks to lead the Trojans, who are two victories away, to their third consecutive NCAA championship. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily Trojan The Trojans hosted the first two rounds of the tournament, entering the postseason with a 14-match win streak, and walked away with a pair of 4-0 victories Friday and Saturday against Sacramento State and No. 31 San Diego.Next up for USC is No. 16 Georgia Tech on Thursday at noon in Palo Alto, Calif. The Yellow Jackets earned this trip to the round of 16 for the first time since 1994.“You just want to win,” said USC coach Peter Smith. “Winning gives you confidence and that’s the bottom line. You need momentum and winning gives you momentum.”In Friday’s play, after winning two of three doubles matches to secure the doubles point against Sacramento State, the teams played out three singles matches before USC sealed the deal. Freshman Ray Sarmiento finished first, beating Sacramento State’s Javier Millan 6-2, 6-1. Junior Daniel Nguyen closed second, with a straight set 6-3, 6-2 win against Marko Starcevic.For Nguyen the wins were more than just pocketed victories. They mark a personal success that has been hard fought but warmly welcomed.“I think I’m playing my best tennis right now, both mentally and physically,” Nguyen said. “I’m playing NCAA tennis.”Ultimately, being able to contribute to his team is most important to Nguyen, who was an integral part of the 2009 and 2010 back-to-back national championships teams.He made clear that the team was ready to go and back for more.“We’re ready and we’re coming back to win that title,” Nguyen said.Saturday’s competition against San Diego was similarly successful. Nguyen and Sarmiento did not complete their doubles match after the Trojans’ No. 2 pair Poldma and sophomore J.T. Sundling, and No. 1 pair Johnson and Gomez pocketed 8-3, 8-4 wins against the Torero’s Dean Jackson and Patrick Pohlmann, and Nikola Bubnic and Nils Schive, respectively.USC entered singles play with the doubles point in hand.Lucassen was dominant at No. 6, winning 6-0, 6-1 against Abdullah Hashem. Nguyen won his second consecutive singles match in the competition, defeating Bubnic 6-2, 6-2, to bring USC within one match of another 4-0 win.Poldma, Johnson, and Sarmiento were still battling mid-match when Gomez, playing atNo. 5, secured the team’s spot with a 6-1, 6-3 victory against Thibaut Visy.As the team goes deeper into the NCAAs, Smith said it’s all about staying “loose.”“We’re focused and we’re ready,” Smith said. “It’s just a matter of staying sharp.”Nguyen echoed that sentiment, feeling confident in the team’s ability to stay on top.“Each match is going to be one of the toughest of our lives,” Nguyen said. “But we’ve prepared well, and we’re ready.”
