Real Madrid: Benzema blasts Chelsea’s Oliver Giroud

It won’t be spectacular, he won’t do something amazing, but he has his thing. “Aside from that, does everyone like the way he plays? I don’t know.” Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has taken aim at Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud by stating: ‘You cannot confuse Formula 1 with karting.’ Giroud has replaced Benzema in the France international team in the past four years with the Madrid striker not appearing for his nation since prior to the 2016 European Championships.

Maria Tritou builds on foreign experience to improve as singles player

first_imgZach Barlow | Asst. Photo Editor Tritou left everything behind when moving to Holland. Because of her decision to move, she went to all her matches alone. No coach. No family on the sideline rooting her on. Just her, her tennis bag and her racket.“The only thing I was doing was practice,” she said. “I’m really glad my parents actually let me to do that.”Tritou now dons an orange and white outfit on a college team. During her games, there are seven teammates, three coaches and fans on the sidelines rooting her on. She does not have to face each match alone like she used to. She finally has a team to rely on, rather than being independent.“Living by yourself at 15 years old isn’t easy,” Tritou said. “(Living away from family) had some ups and downs, but at the end, it’s all worth it.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories How Maria Tritou’s height helps freshman to 6-2 singles recordMaria Tritou wins singles and doubles match to lead Syracuse to 4-3 victory over Notre Damecenter_img Published on April 10, 2016 at 10:36 pm Contact Charlie: [email protected] | @charliedisturco Maria Tritou ran to the right corner of the court and set her feet. Her right hand gripped the racket ever so tightly. Her left hand was held out as if she was ready to strike a Heisman pose. She reached back and swung with force, hitting the ball past her opponent.A few plays later, a long rally ensued in which Tritou added a mixture of forehands and backhands before her opponent hit the ball out of bounds.“Point!” Tritou yelled out, as she began to walk to the center of the court to shake hands with her opponent. Another point. Another game. Another win in singles.Tritou’s game has strengthened over the past few years, and it’s culminated in a 9-8 singles record as a freshman at Syracuse this season. When she was 15, Tritou moved from Greece to Holland. She was alone, leaving her family back home with one goal: to improve her tennis game and compete at a top level.“On my island, Rhodes, nobody else plays tennis,” Tritou said. “So if I wanted to play at a high level, I had to go away and play tennis or stay home, study and just try to get into a university.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe 6-foot freshman has seen improvements in her game with her ground strokes. Her backhand has become more of a power move, which she attributed to her strength from practicing often and hard.That, mixed with her height, has made her tough competition for opponents. Tritou is often slated at No. 4 singles. Though she is 8-8 there (and 1-0 in No. 3 singles), she has rarely been easily defeated. Most sets are dragged out and long.“I am playing stronger,” Tritou said. “I feel much better in my physical condition.”The one thing that Tritou cites as a piece of her game that remains unchanged is her style, saying, “In tennis, you learn how to play and then practice other things.”last_img read more


first_imgLabour Senator Jimmy Harte says Sinn Fein are so confused when it comes to economics, they maybe should change their advisors as they cannot decide what 0.1 % of GDP is.He said the party’s recently published guide to the Treaty/referendum once again proves the incompetency of Sinn Fein’s economic arguments.“As with most of their arguments in the debate so far, they have made simple schoolboy errors. “On page 11 under the heading “Article 8” it states: ‘Failure to comply brings a penalty payment of up to 0.1% of Member States GDP. (This would equate to €500m on the basis of current Irish GDP)’.“However, on Page 13 regarding Article 8 it states: ‘Significantly the Court could impose fines of up to 0.1% of GDP which at 2011 GDP levels in Ireland would mean approximately €160m’.THe Letterkenny Senator said perhaps Pearse Doherty and Padraig MacLochlainn should get their calculators out and do the maths again, “can do better” would be their school report.“Their inability to analyse the issues and the figures shows that their sums do not add up again.So which is it – €500m or €160m? Where has the €340m gone. “As well as being anti Europe, they are now telling the faming community, the business community and the employers groups that they should vote No but these organisations are advocating a Yes vote as they see the folly of Sinn Fein’s arguments“This once again highlights how Sinn Fein’s arguments against the Stability Treaty are not based on sound economics and how they are cynically and deliberately confusing the issue. Sinn Fein is being selective and hypocritical in its arguments and the Irish people deserve more transparency and honesty in the Treaty debate.“A vital point Sinn Fein is missing in the debate is that the euro is our currency and this Treaty is in our interests. Their interpretation of the figures defies logic and this is yet another attempt by Sinn Fein to hoodwink the electorate not long after they failed to adequately quote economists on another leaflet just to justify their misleading stance,”.He added he was urging people to vote Yes because the Stability Treaty is an important part of Ireland’s response to the crisis in the euro. We cannot have stability and growth in Ireland without stability and growth in Europe. The treaty is not the solution to all our problems but it is an important part of the solution. SINN FEIN SHOULD CHANGE ADVISERS OVER ECONOMICS – HARTE was last modified: May 8th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
