Simeone La Liga is a fantastic league

first_imgAtletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone recently described La Liga as an extraordinary despite their recent stalemate against Villarreal on Saturday.Simeone’s men raced to the lead via Filipe Luis but were pegged back by Mario Gaspar to level the game for the yellow submarines. While Oblak pulled off several stops to keep the score level.“La Liga is extraordinary, fantastic,” the Coach told Football Espana after the game.“All the teams fight and battle, and it allows for a much more competitive League than when Ronaldo and Messi defined it.“It was a tough and intense game against a team who found themselves in a complicated situation, and we knew they’d react.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“We tried to make it a physical match in the first half, while in the second one we pushed on for the winner.“However it was tough, like it always is here. It’s always been tight. We took the lead and our changes made us more lively, but our opponents grew.“They have quality and they’re a team who should be higher in the table. We weren’t surprised by what happened, they’re a difficult team to face and this is a complicated place to play.“I brought Thomas on to give us more dynamism as I thought he could combine better with Correa and Lemar.”last_img read more

Health visitors at Lincolnshire County Council strike in pay dispute

first_imgHealth visitors, trained nurses who attend to patients at home, employed by Lincolnshire County Council and who are members of the trade union Unite, are undertaking strike action in an ongoing pay dispute.The 48-hour period of industrial action started on Monday 15 July 2019 at the council’s operating site in Newland, Lincoln; 84% of Unite members based at the council voted in favour of the strike.The dispute regards 58 health visitors who have been transferred from the NHS Agenda for Change pay scale to instead be paid under the local authority wage rate. Unite has stated that, although Lincolnshire County Council staff and NHS employees have both received pay awards, these specific health visitors have not.The trade union has argued that its health visitor members employed by Lincolnshire County Council have lost more than £2,000 a year since being transferred from the NHS to the council in October 2017.Talks in conjunction with the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas) have so far proved unsuccessful in resolving the dispute.Steve Syson, regional officer at Unite, said: “We believe [this is] the first time that the county’s health visitors will have taken strike action in defence of their pay and professional standards.“It is a sad indictment of the council’s bosses that they have allowed the situation to reach this stage. Unite’s door remains open for constructive talks at any time to settle this dispute for the benefit of our members and, ultimately, for the welfare of the families of Lincolnshire.”Heather Sandy, interim director of education at Lincolnshire County Council, added: “The county council has always valued the professionalism and work of our health visitors and the support they provide to Lincolnshire families. We were keen to avoid strike action, which has been threatened by the Unite union [and] represents approximately one third of our health visiting workforce.“We met with representatives from Unite, facilitated by Acas and, despite constructive discussions, we were unable to reach an agreement. The council remains open to ongoing discussions.“We wish to reassure the public that we have plans in place to cover absences, particularly in the most vulnerable areas, such as safeguarding and primary birth visits. No-one will be left without support.”last_img read more

Windows 10 500 million machines and counting

first_imgWindows 10: 500 million machines and counting by Martin Brinkmann on May 11, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 16 commentsMicrosoft Corporation revealed today that the company’s operating system Windows 10 is running on 500 million computer systems.The company’s initial plan back in 2015 when the operating system was released was to push Windows 10 on 1 billion devices by 2018. Microsoft revised the goal last year to “longer than 2018” when it became clear that it would not be able to reach the goal.The 500 million figure that Microsoft revealed during the keynote speech of the Build 2017 conference means that the company reached half that goal.Lets take a closer look at the number. First, lets put the number in perspective. Microsoft did not reveal lots of figures in the past, but it did mention some.In September 2016, Microsoft noted that Windows 10 was installed on 400 million devices, up from 300 million in May 2016, and just a couple of days ago, Microsoft revealed that Windows 10 was used by 300 million users daily for 3.5 hours or more.May 2016 — 300 million active devices.September 2016 — 400 million active devices.May 2017 — 500 million active devices.The increase from 400 million to 500 million is 100 million, or about 12 million per month. This is far from the pace that Microsoft might have hoped for, but it is not too bad either on first glance.While we don’t have progress charts by month, the big jump between May and September 2016 can probably be explained by coinciding with the end of the free upgrade period. While upgrades to Windows 10 are still free, Microsoft stopped its efforts back then to push Windows 10 on devices running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.Growth has slowed down if you look at the figures, and it is unclear if Microsoft counts all devices running Windows 10, or only PCs when it comes to active devices.If Microsoft keeps the pace of the past eight months, which is about 12 million new devices running Windows 10 per month, it would take about 42 months or 3 years and 6 months to reach the 1 billion milestone goal set in 2015. Instead of hitting that goal in 2018, Microsoft might hit it in October 2020 instead.A quick look at the market share reports provided by NetMarketShare paints a similar picture. Windows 10 rose from a percentage of 19.14% in June 2016 to 26.28% in April 2017. Windows 7, a version of Windows released back in 2009, dropped by only 0.55% in that time.The bulk of Windows 7 users don’t upgrade to a new version of Windows, regardless of whether it is Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.The situation may change once the operating system hits end of extended support in 2020. Microsoft could create another campaign that runs on Windows 7 to get users to upgrade to Windows 10. Considering the end of support, more users may be tempted to take Microsoft up on the offer at that time. All of this is pure speculation however at this point in time.Günther Born over on Borncity points out (in German) that Microsoft has another looming problem that it needs to address: fragmentation of the Windows 10 user base.He cites figures from AdDuplex: Only 9.8% of devices run the Windows 10 Creators Update, 82.1% the Anniversary Update, 6% the November update, and 1.8% the RTM version (which support ended for on May 9, 2017).If that reminds you of the fragmentation on Android, you are probably not completely wrong about that. PC users have the advantage that updates are available for their devices, something that is often blocked on Android by manufacturers who often support devices for a short period of time only.It seems likely that fragmentation will only increase as Microsoft continues to push out two new feature updates per year. Microsoft has yet to address the issue publicly.Now you: 500 million active Windows 10 devices, what’s your take on that?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10: 500 million machines and countingDescriptionMicrosoft Corporation announced today that the company’s operating system Windows 10 is running on 500 million computer systems.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Venezuelan beer magnate accused of treason

first_img Facebook Comments CARACAS, Venezuela — Lawmakers from Venezuela’s ruling Socialist party filed treason charges Wednesday against a prominent billionaire businessman for allegedly seeking an IMF bailout for the recession-ravaged oil giant. Lorenzo Mendoza, head of Venezuelan food and beverage empire Empresas Polar, could face decades in prison if convicted of the charges, which include conspiracy and “usurpation of state functions.”The charges were filed with prosecutors by 101 lawmakers from the 167-seat National Assembly, said deputy Pedro Carreno of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), as he presented the document.The complaint is based on a leaked phone call between Mendoza and Venezuelan economist Ricardo Hausmann that was aired a week ago on a TV program hosted by the speaker of the National Assembly, Diosdado Cabello. 151021Venzuela2The United States condemned the threat to try Mendoza, who ranks 690th on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s wealthiest people, with an estimated fortune of $2.7 billion.In the conversation, Hausmann tells the 50-year-old magnate he has held “conversations” with the International Monetary Fund because he believes Venezuela needs $40 million to $50 million in international assistance to escape its economic crisis — to which Mendoza agrees.The businessman tells Hausmann, who was Venezuela’s planning minister in the 1980s, that such a bailout will be “the ABCs of what we’ll need.”The furor comes as President Nicolás Maduro’s government, battered by falling oil prices, struggles to reverse soaring inflation, chronic shortages and what the IMF predicts will be an economic contraction of 10 percent this year.A treason conviction carries a sentence of up to 30 years in prison in Venezuela, a criminal lawyer told AFP.Mendoza said the taped conversation was private and called the accusations “an attempt to manipulate public opinion” as Venezuela heads for key legislative elections that the PSUV risks losing for the first time since its late founder Hugo Chávez came to power in 1999.“We are deeply concerned by a climate of polarization and intimidation in Venezuela against those with opposing viewpoints,” said the U.S. State Department.“All Venezuelans deserve to be able to express their opinions freely and without fear of intimidation.”center_img Related posts:Venezuela looks set to lock away prominent opposition leader Leopoldo López Costa Rican lawmakers urge political asylum for Venezuela opposition Venezuelan opposition leader shot dead at campaign event: lawmaker US judge postpones hearing in drug case of Venezuela first lady’s nephewslast_img read more

Gold now top conflict mineral in Congo Report

first_img Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home “If you drive from Walikale (a major minerals center) to Goma, you have to pass three different checkpoints. You have to pay the (Rwandan Hutu Democratic Forces), you have to pay the (former National Congress for the Defense of the People), and you have to pay the army. You have to pay all, or they will kill you,” says Willy, a minerals transporter quoted by Enough.On top of supplying the funds for armed groups to buy weapons and ammunition, the illegal gold trade is a source of violence in itself, as armed groups fight each other for control of mines.The M23, a rebel group that formed in April and May following the defection of high ranking officers from the Congolese army, is trying to gain control of the Rubaya gold mine in Masisi, according to Enough.One of the M23 leaders, General Bosco Ntaganda used to run an illegal mineral trade network when he was in the Congolese army, making millions of dollars each year from mines including Rubaya, according to the report.Working conditions in the mines are dreadful as a result of the violence surrounding the trade and the complete absence of regulation.The miners, 40 percent of whom are children according to the advocacy group, work in extreme conditions, with crude equipment such as pick-axes and shovels. Associated PressGOMA, Congo (AP) – Gold is now the primary source of income for armed groups in eastern Congo, and is ending up in jewelry stores across the world, according to a report published Thursday by the Enough Project.“The essential revenue for armed groups comes from gold today. Of course there are other sources like logging, but gold has become the primary source for groups like the FDLR,” said Fidel Bafilemba, Enough’s researcher in eastern Congo. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Sponsored Stories Top Stories The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milkcenter_img Because of the United States’ Dodd-Frank law requiring companies to track the origin of the minerals they use, armed groups have been unable to profit from the exploitation of tin, tungsten and tantalum, and have turned instead to gold, which is easier to smuggle across borders.“Gold is very portable, you can put it in your pocket and it is easily smuggled across the border. You don’t need a large quantity to make a lot of money,” said an anti-fraud agent of the border custom in Goma, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.Roughly $30,000 worth of gold can fit in a pocket and around $700,000 in a briefcase, estimates The Enough Project, the rights group that specializes in conflict minerals in Congo and Sudan.While only 23 kilograms of gold were officially exported from eastern Congo in the first half of 2012, 2 tons to 4 tons of gold went out through illegal routes, according to the report.As a result, the illegal gold trade represents lost revenues of hundreds of millions of dollars for the Congolese state every year, preventing the local population from benefiting from the country’s natural resources.Instead armed groups are profiting from the illegal trade, through taxation and coercion. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Comments   Share   In Nyabibwe, a cassiterirte mine where conditions are similar to those in gold mines, miners go down tunnels without any safety net.“With time, we actually forget about the dangers, even though they are real,” says Bisima, a 33-year-old miner working at the Nyabibwe pit. “Mine collapse remains the greatest danger.”In August, 60 people died in a gold mine which collapsed in Pangoyi, Ituri Province.The gold from eastern Congo is smuggled across the border to Uganda, Burundi or Tanzania where it is absorbed in the local trade and then sent to major world markets, states the report.Uganda produced only $167 million worth of gold in the past three years, but exported an estimated $212 million, according to statistics cited by Enough.“They (the government) like the chaos. It’s what allows the officers to get a cut from the trade,” said a former Ugandan mining official quoted by Enough.Uganda was accused in a recent United Nations report of supporting the M23 rebellion in eastern DRC.

Homeowner Appraiser Opinions Drift Further Apart

first_imgHomeowner, Appraiser Opinions Drift Further Apart Appraisal Values Homeowner expectations 2017-01-10 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, News, Origination Sharecenter_img January 10, 2017 589 Views The gap between what homeowner estimate the value of their homes to be and what appraisers say widened in December for the first time in six months, according to the latest Quicken Loans National Home Price Perception Index (HPPI).The National HPPI showed the average appraisal value fell 1.33 percent below owner expectations, a reversal of the narrowing trend in the second half of 2016. Quicken said that the decline in average appraisal value “erases all improvement made in the last few months.” The gap between owner expectations and actual appraiser value narrowed for five consecutive months from June to October; for October, appraised values were only 1 percent lower than owners’ perceptions on average.Just as perceptions lost some ground in November, so too did appraisal values themselves. According to Quicken’s National Home Value Index (HVI), the average home value in December was 1.19 percent lower than in November. However, appraised values continue to rise on an annual basis, increasing 3.85 percent year-over-year.Important to note, however, is that despite the overall lower numbers nationwide, there were significant variations in value across various regions of the country. For instance, estimates from homeowners were 3 percent higher than appraised values in Philadelphia and 3 percent lower in Denver. Homeowners in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Cleveland were the most optimistic about their homes’ values; those in Denver, Portland, and Dallas were the least.Despite the dip from the previous month, home values continued to climb higher year-over-year by 3.85 percent nationally. However, as the report noted, growth was at a slower pace than the 5.28 percent annual increase in November. Appraised values showed strongest annual growth in the West, while the Midwest had the slowest gains.“Home value growth has been mostly driven by enthusiastic buyers vying for a smaller than usual inventory of properties,” said Bob Walters, Quicken Loans’ chief economist. “Appraised values have dipped along with the seasonal decline in sales around the winter months. It’s yet to be seen if value growth will build as sales rise in the spring, or as construction increases.”last_img read more

He was at North Carolina and left after disciplinary reasons. The Cardinals like Hughes more than Louisville’s Jaire Alexander, similarly to how they liked Haason Reddick more than Rueben Foster last year.Kiper’s analysis: Technique, his footwork, his ball skills, his athleticism are all top-notch. He’s also got tremendous return ability. He could be a lead corner and also help out big-time in the return game. Mike Hughes, on potential alone, is very exciting.Mock draft placement: CBS – not in the first round, NFL – No. 14, SI – No. 15, PFF – No. 31D.J. Moore, WR, Maryland(AP Photo/Darron Cummings)Gambo’s insight: He’s ahead of Calvin Ridley. If they stay at No. 15, this is the value here. He’s the one offensive player in my five. This kid is a stud wide receiver. Great speed, great vertical, 80 catches last year. Holds onto everything. Mock draft placement: CBS – No. 5, NFL – No. 3, SI – No. 3, PFF – No. 3 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Related LinksArizona Cardinals 2018 Mock Draft TrackerExperts believe Baker Mayfield-loving Cardinals will be aggressive in draftMonday starts with the Day 1 players to watch at No. 15 and one honorable mention to keep an eye on in terms of trading up.Here are those six players in the order they were revealed on 98.7 FM’s Burns & Gambo, along with Gambadoro’s insight, ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.’s draft profile and where that prospect has been selected in the latest mock drafts.Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia(AP Photo/Michael Conroy)Gambo’s insight: When you go best player available, this kid is an absolute stud. His coverage ability is second to none. You’ve got a defensive coach in Wilks, you move into a 4-3, he’s a Luke Kuechly type of player. He has those types of leadership skills. He’s that special of a player. He could go as high as No. 6 to Indianapolis. He may not be there at No. 15.Kiper’s analysis: A tackling machine. Sideline-to-sideline defender. Great range. 4.5 speed, can play inside or outside, very instinctive player. He will be the centerpiece, the foundation piece, of your defense.Mock draft placement: CBS – No. 6, NFL – No. 10, SI – No. 9, PFF – No. 12 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Derwin James, S, Florida State(AP Photo/Darron Cummings)Gambo’s insight: Hybrid guy. There’s a ton of teams that are interested in him. He is a special player. He will be one of those guys who will be highly considered at No. 15 if he is on the board, which I think he will be. One of the best defensive backs in the draft.Kiper’s analysis: In that Kam Chancellor mold, only a little bit more athletic. Long arms, tremendous speed under 4.5. Really strong, tremendous athletic ability. This is rare talent for a big safety who kind of plays like a linebacker but has safety skills. This is a talent that really thrives in today’s NFL.Mock draft placement: CBS – No. 15, NFL – No. 24, SI – No. 16, PFF – No. 7Minkah Fitzpatrick, DB, Alabama(AP Photo/Darron Cummings, file)Gambo’s insight: Unlike James, Fitzpatrick is a guy who can play other positions. Smart player. Ballhawk. I think he’s kind of in that range (of No. 15).Kiper’s analysis: He doesn’t have the explosive athletic testing numbers but on the field with the pads on (he has) great versatility. Can play corner, slot and safety. He’s a true playmaker who goes about his business in a professional manner.center_img Top Stories With Monday marking the start of NFL Draft week, 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro has released The Gambo 5.If you’re not familiar with the list, Gambadoro narrows down the targets for the Arizona Cardinals to the five players he sees as the most likely for the Cardinals to select in certain ranges of the 2018 NFL Draft. Gambadoro had Haason Reddick in The Gambo 5 for Day 1 in last year’s draft and Budda Baker in the Day 2 edition. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Kiper’s analysis: I’ve been raving about D.J. Moore for the last couple of years. 210-pound, 6-foot receiver with 4.42 speed, 39 and a half-inch vertical jump and 11-inch broad jump, in addition to great productivity. Remember, Maryland used four quarterbacks this past year yet he rarely dropped a catchable ball, was consistent week after week (and) could play in bad weather conditions. Has the punt return skills as well. He could be a go-to No. 1 focal point of a pass offense in the NFL.Mock draft placement: CBS – No. 16, NFL – No. 19, SI – No. 19, PFF – No. 29Honorable mention: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA(AP Photo/Michael Owen Baker)Gambo’s insight: If they do make a move to go get a quarterback, it’s not for Baker Mayfield (and) it’s not for Josh Allen because I don’t think those guys are reachable. How far will Rosen fall? Will he go to six? Will he go to eight? Will he go to Buffalo at 12? Can you jump ahead of Buffalo at 12? Those are the things we just don’t know with Rosen.Kiper’s analysis: You look at Rosen, throwing the football — very artistic, throws the tight spiral, throws accurate balls, very catchable balls. In the three, five and seven step drop situations, he’s ideal, he’s pro-ready, all that. The concern with Rosen is two straight years of injury.last_img read more

Saina Nehwal continued to battle with injuries in a year which saw Indian badminton take giant strides at the global platform File photo of PV Sindhu at the Rio Olympics Reuters It turned out to be a watershed year for Sindhu who reached the upper echelons of world badminton with a silver medal at the Rio Games – an achievement also for her mentor and chief coach Pullela Gopichand who became the only Indian coach to produce two Olympic medallists On the other hand for the first part of the year it was Saina’s battle with injuries which dominated the headlines even though she was considered to be the best bet for India at Rio The Indian ace fought against time to recover from an Achilles tendon injury and went on to win the Australian Super Series Despite her two bronze medals at the World Championship Sindhu meanwhile was considered one of the hopefuls but not a serious contender for the gold medal partly because of her early exits from tournaments in the run-up to the Games But the Olympics had contrasting fates awaiting the duo While Saina exited in the second round and later it came to light that she had a bone chip floating inside her knee area Sindhu went on to become the first Indian shuttler to win a silver at the Games and with the feat she finally stepped out of Saina’s shadow In the months after that Saina underwent a surgery in Mumbai and spent a long time in rehab while Sindhu basked in her Olympic glory Besides the Olympic feat Sindhu also etched her name in history books becoming only the third Indian to win the China Open her maiden Super Series Premier title and then reached the finals at Hong Kong Open and finished as semi-finalist in her debut World Super Series Finals at Dubai "It has been a fantastic year for me because winning a medal at the Olympics is a big achievement It’s a dream come true Also I always had in mind that I wanted to win a Super Series title and that also was fulfilled (at the China Open)" Sindhu said "Definitely the aim is to become No 1 I have achieved my career-best six so I am really very happy I wish this can continue and I can continue improving further" Besides Sindhu’s meteoric rise Saina clinching the Australian Super Series and K Srikanth reaching the quarterfinals at Rio and winning the Syed Modi International championship at Lucknow HS Prannoy bagging the Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold at Basel were the highlights of the year in which Indian badminton achieved unprecedented success In men’s singles Sourabh Verma recovered from a long injury lay-off to bag the Chinese Taipei Grand Prix and finish runners-up at the Bitburger Open B Sai Praneeth also won his maiden title at the Canada Grand Prix and Sameer Verma crowned himself the senior national champion before finishing runners-up at the Hong

Reddy winning the Canada Open and becoming the first Indian men’s pair to qualify for the Olympics The mixed doubles combination of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and Sikki Reddy also had a memorable year as they won two Grand Prix titles at Brazil and Russia and finished runners-up at the Scotland Open The young Ruthvika Shivani Gadde also claimed the women’s singles title at Russia as India continued to tick the right boxes The Indian women’s team clinched a bronze medal for the second time after suffering a 0-3 defeat at the hands of defending champions China in the semi-finals of the Uber Cup at Kunshan in May While Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa also made it to the Olympics for the second successive edition the year saw the celebrated women’s doubles pair split early last month and pair up with Manu and Sikki respectively for women’s doubles and mixed doubles respectively There were also others such as Commonwealth Games champion P Kashyap and Glasgow bronze-medallist RMV Gurusaidutt

they all have played very well in different times and it augurs well for Indian badminton Hopefully we will get consistency (in future)" he said The final Grand Slam of the year gets under way on 28 August in New York and it promises to be one of the most dramatic events in recent time Like the Big Apple the US Open has a chaotic flashy and electric vibe — the night sessions under lights the flamboyant outfits and the gruelling hard courts make for a thrilling two weeks While the French Open and Wimbledon were unpredictable and open because there were no clear-cut favourites the US Open’s intrigue stems from a very strong field on the women’s side Each of the top six seeds has a case for them to be considered as a genuine contender And to add to the drama there is an eight-way battle for the WTA top spot at the final Slam of the season Here’s a deep dive into the women’s draw with predictions for who could emerge from each quarter: Top quarter Karolina Pliskova heads the top quarter of the women’s draw The Czech player made the final of the US Open in 2016 with gutsy wins over Venus and Serena Williams and then followed that up with the most consistent 12 months on the tour that saw her clinch the World No 1 ranking Karolina Pliskova is the top seed and is defending runner-up points from 2016 Reuters Pliskova opens her campaign against Magda Linette of Poland but shouldn’t face much trouble in her opening week Zhang Shuai who made the Australian Open quarters in 2016 and France’s Kristina Mladenovic are her potential opponents in the third and fourth rounds respectively Mladenovic had a brilliant run in the first six months but has faded away since the French Open The second-highest seed in Pliskova’s quarter is 2004 US Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova who is seeded eight The Russian made the quarters inCincinnati in the North American hard court season but has a tricky draw to tackle in New York Kuznetsova faces the dangerous Marketa Vondrousova in her opening round and also has 26th seed Anett Kontaveit former No 5 Lucie Safarova big-serving CoCo Vandeweghe and the crafty Agnieszka Radwanksa looming in her section If Kuznetsova makes it through to the quarter-final we may be treated to yet another three-set thriller between Pliskova and her First round match to watch out for:Safarova vs Kontaveit Semi-finalist prediction:Pliskova Second quarter Fourth seed Elina Svitolina and defending champion Angelique Kerber sit on opposite ends of the second quarter Svitolina is enjoying a breakthrough year this season with five titles to her name and after winning the warm-up event in Toronto she is definitely one of the favourites at the Flushing Meadows Elina Svitolina is enjoying a breakthrough year with five titles to her name but can she bring that same form to a Grand Slam Reuters However Svitolina has struggled to translate her incredible form from the WTA events to the Grand Slams She made the quarters at the French Open this year but has failed to reach the second week of the hard court Majors in her career Standing between her and a fourth-round appearance are Daria Gavrilova who just won her first career title at Conneticut on Saturday; 17th seed Elena Vesnina and the ferocious Madison Keys If she manages to get past these difficult potential opponents it’s likely that either Kerber or French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko would be waiting for her in the quarter-final Kerber seemed to have found some confidence at the Wimbledon where she was ousted by eventual winner Garbine Muguruza but then had a tough hard court season with only one win over two tournaments Ostapenko on the other hand continues to exude self-belief and fearlessness regardless of her opponent or the event While her high-risk style of tennis may not always pay off it makes her a potent threat Her path may cross with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova another ball-basher who could string together a deep run at the US Open This section of the draw promises plenty of intriguing clashes but Svitolina’s solid play could see her survive this loaded quarter First round match to watch out for:Kerber vs Naomi Osaka Semi-finalist prediction:Svitolina Third quarter The third quarter is the one that looks the toughest on paper Fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki and Wimbledon champion Muguruza are the two highest-seeded players in this section It also features seven-time Major champion Venus two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova French Open quarter-finalist Caroline Garcia Wimbledon semi-finalist Magdalena Rybarikova Australian Open semi-finalist Mirjana Lucic-Baroni and Washington champion Ekaterina Makarova Garbine Muguruza is playing with a lot of freedom and composure and is one of the favourites for the US Open title Reuters Wozniacki has had a decent warm-up run before the US Open with a final and quarter-final appearance at Toronto and Cincinnati respectively The courts of the Flushing Meadows have always brought out the best in the Dane – this is the Slam where she has performed the best with two finals and three semi-final appearances (including in 2016) here Venus is the only female player to have made two Slam finals in 2017 and despite her poor performances at Toronto and Cincinnati she will be a formidable force in front of her home crowd Kvitova hasn’t had the ideal return since her hand surgery but she if gets a couple of easy wins under her belt she could pose trouble for the other seeds in this quarter Muguruza’s painful loss at the French Open at the hands of Mladenovic in the fourth round seemed to have been a turning point in her career Since that loss she has been playing with a lot more freedom and composure which helped her win her second Grand Slam in July and the Cincinnati Open a week ago The Spaniard has the weapons to outhit any opponent on the women’s tour and she is in red-hot form With so many dark horses and contenders this is a tough quarter to make a prediction for but one can’t help but be tempted toback Muguruza to come through First round match to watch out for:Alize Cornet vs Heather Watson Semi-finalist prediction:Muguruza Bottom quarter When the women’s draw was announced on Friday in Manhattan it was the unveiling of the bottom quarter that drew the loudest gasps from the audience Second seed Simona Halep was drawn to face five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova in the first round The Russian had been given a wildcard into the main draw and hence was a dangerous unseeded floater but few people were expecting such a high-profile first round Simona Halep is the second seed but has been dealt one of the toughest first rounds – against Maria Sharapova AP In fact the last time Sharapova and Halep met at a Grand Slam it was in the final of the Roland Garros in 2016 The Romanian has never beaten Sharapova in six meetings but this could be her best chance for a win Sharapova has struggled since returning from her doping suspension and has only won six matches over four tournaments If Halep gets past Sharapova she has a relatively easy draw She could run into sixth seed Johanna Konta in the quarter-final and have a shot at avenging her heart-breaking Wimbledon loss Had Halep won that encounter in July she would have been the World No 1 However for Konta to reach the last eight she will have to overcome a landmine-ridden path – the Brit faces a potential third round against dark horse Julia Goerges and one of 21st seed Ana Konjuh resurgent Sloane Stephens rising star Ashleigh Barty or Connecticut
