Anderson: tennis world takes note

first_img4 April 2008At 6ft 7ins, a tad over two metres, new South African tennis sensation Kevin Anderson knows what it is like to walk tall.Suddenly, though, after beating world number three Novak Djokovic, right now the hottest property in world tennis, in the current Masters tournament in Miami, the 21-year-old Johannesburg-born giant has been elevated to a position where he has his head in the clouds.“Yes it’s a stimulating and pleasing feeling to mingle with the greats of the game in the locker room and actually have them greet you when before they were only names that you worshipped from a distance,” said Anderson in a conference call from the United States.Rapid rankings riseRanked 122nd in the ATP world ratings before the Miami tournament started – largely as a result of his runner-up finish in Las Vegas, which made him the first South African in two years to reach an ATP final – Kevin’s father, Mike Anderson, who has been a major influence in his son’s career, has calculated his Kevin will move up to approximately 110 next week. Not bad for the new South African number one, who was ranked 550th in the world little more than five months ago!Ian Smith, the Chief Executive Officer of the South African Tennis Association, was full of praise for the youngster. “Kevin had an opportunity to test himself against some of the best players in the world at the recent SAA Tennis Open in East London. He is our most prized property at the moment and if he continues with such performances, we can expect much greater things,” he said.Anderson believes he gained the stunning victory against Djokovic by raising the level of his game to new heights, which has given him confidence he could hold his own with the best in the world on the tennis court.‘A learning curve’He lost his next game in Miami against 32nd-ranked Russian Igor Andreev by a whisker in a tense three-set battle and says his new-found status made it “a little difficult” to concentrate and repeat the level he had reached against Djokovic. “But it was a good game,” he says, “and part of a learning curve for me. I’ve got no complaints with the way I played.”He believes his tennis has improved immeasurably under the guidance of Illinois University coach Brad Dancer, under whom Anderson spent three years on a scholarship.“Areas I’ve looked at improving,” explained Anderson, “are playing closer to the baseline, instead of further back, and progressing more often to the net as a variation to what is basically a groundstroke game.”Playing styleBecause of his height, serving not unexpectedly is a forte of Anderson’s play, but unlike many of those who are as tall and taller, he generally plays from the back of the court.He is looking forward to next week’s Davis Cup tie against Finland in Finland, and his meteoric emergence provides South Africa with fresh stimulus for what is expected to be a difficult tie – with the Finnish side including the 26th ranked Jarkko Nieminen.Afterwards, Anderson has mapped out a programme as busy as that of any player, including Challenger events as well as other clay court tournaments on the main ATP circuit. His programme includes appearances in the three remaining grand slam events of the year after his 2008 fairytale began when he qualified for the Australian Open main draw in January.Improving ranking“I’m still in a position where I might have to qualify for some of these tournaments,” he said, “but I have no points to drop from last year and there is a good chance my ranking can improve further.”Anderson left St Stithians School in Johannesburg, where he was also an above-average cricket and soccer player, to finish his matric via private studies so that he could concentrate on a tennis career. Now, a short time later, that decision is paying dividends in a big way!SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

National Register of Citizens: Assam minorities bombarded with re-verification notices

first_img Sachetan Nagarik Mancha, a group that has been demanding re-verification of 20% NRC applicants in districts bordering Bangladesh and 10% in other districts, have also criticised Mr. Hajela for a different reason.“During the July 23 hearing, Mr. Hajela said 27% applicants in the draft NRC have already been reverified. “He should reveal the process for carrying out the automatic re-verification, who he informed about it, and whether he issued a public notice about it. He should reveal these because a faulty NRC could pose a threat to the safety of Assam and India,” Mancha president Chandan Bhattacharya said. Anwar Hussain was surprised to receive a notice from the Local Registrar of Citizen Registration (LRCR) of the Goroimari Revenue Block on Saturday.The notice gave him less than 48 hours to appear, with all members of his family, for re-verification of their citizenship documents at the Golaghat North Development Block office in Golaghat district’s Dergaon, about 330 km west of his village Kanahara in Kamrup district. They were asked to report at 9 a.m. sharp on Monday.“I somehow managed to hire a 22-seater bus for my family and a few others. The vehicle alone will cost me ₹18,000,” said the 33-year-old Mr. Hussain, vice-principal of the Al-Amin Islamic Model School, before leaving for Dergaon in eastern Assam late on Sunday.He was not the only one in Kanahara; 148 others had received a similar notice. By Saturday afternoon, about 50% of the people in most Muslim-dominated villages, such as Goroimari, Sontoli, Kalatoli, Topamari and Maligari, in Kamrup district had received the notice — almost simultaneously.Not left out“All those who were asked to get their documents reverified are included in the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC) published on July 30, 2018. They are not among the 40.07 lakh and 1.02 lakh put on the two lists of people excluded from the NRC,” Kanahara village leader Muksed Ali Choudhury told The Hindu.“The notices have been a bolt from the blue. Most people like Jamir Ali, Jahanara Khatun, Aamir Ali are daily-wagers and unable to get vehicles to centres 300-500 km away at such short notice. They fear they will be excluded from NRC if they cannot turn up at the specified place in time,” Mr. Choudhury said.Also Read Assam’s NRC exercise: The registry test of citizenship  There were reports of similar notices served in minority areas of districts such as Barpeta, Goalpara, Dhubri, Morigaon and Karimganj.‘SC snubbed’The Brahmaputra Valley Civil Society (BVCS), a group of academicians, retired bureaucrats, lawyers and professionals, said the notices cited The Citizenship (Registration of Citizens and Issue National Identity Cards) Rules 2003.“But the rules, as amended in 2009, and the Standard Operating Procedure that the Centre came up with for the NRC exercise say that a person has to be given at least 15 days to appear for a hearing. In a sudden bombardment of notices on August 3, people have been asked to go to faraway places for hearings on August 5, 6 and 7,” senior advocate H.R.A. Choudhury said.Also Read Assam NRC: SC questions need for sample reverification  “The LRCRs and NRC authorities have also snubbed the Supreme Court, which on April 10 ordered that a person should be called for hearing to a centre within a convenient distance in the same district. The notices have also violated the SC ruling on July 23 against the government’s plea for re-verification after NRC State Coordinator Prateek Hajela said 27% re-verification has already been done,” Mr. Choudhury said.Under fireBVCS president Atowar Rahman said the notices have been served in mostly Muslim areas two days after the State government disclosed district-wise data on NRC inclusions and exclusions in the State Assembly. “We wonder if Mr. Hajela is under pressure from the government to have these notices served, or his office has done it voluntarily,” he said.Mr. Hajela could not be contacted. Other NRC officials cited the Supreme Court’s gag order.Also Read Supreme Court extends Assam NRC final publication deadline to August 31last_img read more

Canadian Government issues TCI travel alert in aftermath of Hurricanes

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, September 25, 2017 – Providenciales  – The UK is not the only major source market warning against travel to the TCI; Magnetic Media found that Global Affairs Canada is also advising its citizens not to travel to our islands unless necessary.“Global Affairs Canada advises against non-essential travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands, due to the damage caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.”The concern for the Canadian Government is the damage caused after back to back hurricanes and the risk of Zika infection.   Our news organization is told that there are significant cancellations by guests; many are worried about Zika.The TCI had been able to contain the mosquito borne virus, since it was detected here in early 2016.   The feat of keeping new infections to nil is forgotten now though; mosquitoes are breeding fast and furious since Hurricane Irma hit on September 7.Also over the weekend the UK warned against all but essential travel to the TCI; that was soon amended to apply to only Grand Turk.   Canadians account for the second largest market and the fastest growing market of visitors to the country.We have reached out to the PDM Administration for comment on this string of concerning travel advisories; there has been no official comment.#MagneticMediaNews#traveladvisoriesforTCI Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #traveladvisoriesforTCIlast_img read more
