Sevastova loses to Mladenovich and does not get out of the…

first_imgSevastova, who ranks 44th in the WTA rank, gave up 3-6, 4-6 to the Frenchman Kristina Mladenovich, who is in a higher position in the ranking.Losing in the first round, Sevastov finished the tournament with one WTA ranking. Her next stop will be the US Open.Sevastova already had two breakballs in the second game, but they were not used, while Mladenoviča broke the serve of Liepāja and reached 2-1. The Latvian tennis player could not deprive the opponent of his service, moreover, in the ninth game she was beaten – 6-3 in favor of Mladenovich.In the second set, Sevastova lost her first two serves, resulting in a 0-4 lead. Two convincing breaks and the opponent’s loss of confidence helped her reach 4-4. Mladenovich recovered at the right moment and returned to the lead with convincing service. In the next game, she broke Sevastova’s serve again and scored 6-4 for both the set and the match.Sevastova had two double mistakes in this match, while the opponent had eight. Mladenovich also performed three elusive services, but Sevastova was left without “passes”.The two tennis players have previously competed against each other three times. Ten years ago, Sevastov won the tournament in Strasbourg, but last year he dropped out of the second set in Rome in Mladenovich. In mid-October last year, in the second round of the Moscow tournament, the Frenchman won three sets, entering Sevastov’s long series of losses.This was the second tournament for Sevastova after the season resumed. Less than two weeks ago, she made concessions to Romanian Irina Begu in the first round of the Prague International Championship.This season, she has won only one of nine games, winning the Federation Cup over Serene Williams. In the WTA tour, the Latvian tennis player has not overcome the first round in six tournaments in a row this season, therefore the balance of Liepaja is 0-7.This summer, Sevastova took part in two show tournaments in Germany, winning one of them. She was also part of the Latvian national team in the Estonian-Latvian match in Tallinn, conceding the leading tennis players of the northern neighbors in both singles. Rank points were not shared in these tournaments.Mladenovich returned to the tournament in Palermo on the tour, where in the first match he acknowledged the superiority of the Russian Ekaterina Alexandrov. She has won three games in nine matches in the WTA Main Event this season.Mladenovich is better known as a doubles specialist, taking the high third place in the doubles match. Earlier this year, she triumphed with the Hungarian Tímá Babosz in the Australian Open and won her fourth Grand Slam doubles title.During her career, she has won one single-player title (in 2017 in St. Petersburg) and 23 doubles trophies.The tournament takes place in New York at the US Tennis Association’s National Tennis Center, named after Billy Gin King, where the US Open will begin at the end of August. Matches take place on outdoor courts on a hard surface.The Western & Southern Open tournament usually takes place in Cincinnati, but this time it has been moved to New York so that tennis players do not have to travel before the US Open, which would increase the risk of Covid-19 infection.Others are currently reading “Lidl” or “Aldi”?

Rest of AL East best thing going for Orioles

first_imgBALTIMORE — It doesn’t take long to explain why the Orioles fell 4-2 to Seattle on Wednesday night, snapping an all-too-brief two-game winning streak. A lineup that sleepwalked through seven innings, a few poor pitches in an otherwise solid seven-inning outing from Wei-Yin Chen, and an eighth-inning baserunning blunder from Jimmy Paredes all played major parts in the Orioles once again falling three games below .500 at 17-20. No matter how you slice it, the Orioles haven’t been able to put it all together as Memorial Day is nearly upon us. “We haven’t played consistent baseball all year,” said Steve Pearce, who’s just one of several key players who have significantly underperformed so far in 2015. “It’s still early. We haven’t been playing good baseball all year and we’re still right [there in the standings]. We have a chance to turn this around; we’re not pressing yet. We’re only a quarter of the way through the season.”Even with an array of injuries and significant concerns at the corner outfield spots, the Orioles find themselves just one game behind New York and Tampa Bay in the loss column for first place in the American League East. The best thing going for the Orioles is the performance of the rest of the division through the first 6 1/2 weeks of the 2015 season as all five teams lost on Wednesday. After jumping out to a 21-12 start, the Yankees have now lost seven of eight with leadoff hitter and center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury joining starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka on the 15-day disabled list. The Yankees are old, injury-prone, and too dependent on the back end of their bullpen, making it difficult to love their chances over a 162-game marathon. So far, Boston has been the biggest disappointment in the AL East despite its spending spree over the winter. The pitching has improved of late — it still doesn’t inspire much confidence and already cost pitching coach Juan Nieves his job earlier this month — but a Red Sox lineup touted as baseball’s best entering the season has scored fewer runs than any club in the AL East. The Toronto Blue Jays have hit as well as everyone predicted, but their pitching has been as poor as anyone could have feared, allowing the most runs in the league. Their poor play and reports of unrest in the clubhouse have led to speculation of manager John Gibbons’ job being in danger. Under new manager Kevin Cash, the Rays have been the biggest surprise, overcoming a slew of injuries to begin the season with a 22-19 mark to pull into a first-place tie with New York. Tampa Bay has pitched well and scored more runs than most would have expected, but the season-ending loss of Alex Cobb and the prospects of Drew Smyly trying to rehab a torn labrum in his pitching shoulder will create doubt about the Rays’ long-term chances for prosperity. Those realities do not mean that all will be fine for the Orioles as you can spell out their issues in a similar manner, but they do remind you that expressions of concern exist throughout the AL East. No team has separated itself from the pack to this point as it’s looking more likely that we’ll see an AL East champion fall shy of the 95-win mark for the first time since 2000 when the Yankees won only 87 contests. For now, I’ll stand by my preseason prediction of the Orioles winning the AL East with 89 victories even though I share in the same concerns of many fans. But even if Baltimore isn’t the one left standing at the end of the season, I’m feeling confident about that win total getting it done for the winning club.In short, you can be as concerned about the Orioles as you’d like after 37 games. Just know that they’re not alone in what’s been an underwhelming AL East so far.last_img read more
