    Amazing result for this young team with two 24 year olds, wonder if Deußer and Ahlmann can get back into the team. Hopefully they will perform the same way at the worlds.
  2. Rowing FISA World Cup 2018

    Exceted about the german future in this sport. Men's eight and women's quadruple sculls are where they should be and finally a great talent in men's single sculls, only men's quadruple sculls is a bit worrying. I thought that Naske would end the german drought in men's single sculls, but apparently it will be Zeidler. Considering the age of the other top guys and the fact that Zeidler started rowing only 18 months ago, i see a good chance for him to medal in 2020, winning the first german medal in men's single sculls since 2000 and maybe even the first german gold in this event since 1992. Now that the qualification for the world championships is over, i hope that Naske and the second german team in women's quadruple sculls will be used to strengthen other boats.
  3. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    I expected nothing less from the french people, they are world famous for behavior like that. Probably will find a reason to make this day a national holiday, so that they can work even less.
  4. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Quality-wise a really poor tournament with almost all big teams (except for France) flopping. In major leagues there are just too many games, it's probably no coincidence that the 2nd youngest team won. Let's hope that players will be less exhausted in 2022. France was the best team and deserved the title, they will only get better and will be the team to beat in the future. For me it's still weird to see so many players with a foreign background in their team, i would imagine it's hard to identify with this team for many white people in France. I know that France has a lot of people with a foreign background, but not clearly over 50% as in their football team. Mbappe of course was the best young player and Courtois was the best goalkeeper. Hard to tell who was the best player, noone really stood out.

    How was it a revenge when the girl that beat her last weak didnt compete here?
  6. Tennis Wimbledon 2018

    Female players who won 3 different slams in the open era (without achieving the career grand slam): Virginia Wade, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, Monica Seles, Hana Mandlikova, Evonne Goolagong Cawley, Justine Henin, Angelique Kerber Female players who won Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open, but not the French Open in the open era: Virginia Wade, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, Angelique Kerber (On the mens side: Boris Becker, Arthur Ashe, Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras, Stefan Edberg) Female players who won the career grand slam in the open era: Billie Jean King, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert (On the mens side: Andre Agassi, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal) Kerber is just one French Open title away from becoming the 7th female player in the Open Era to win the career grand slam, something even Justine Henin, Kim Clijsters, Jennifer Capriati, Monica Seles, Lindsay Davenport, Venus Williams and Martina Hingis didn't accomplish. This would also make her only the 11th player (male or female) to accomplish this in the open era.

    Really strange to see ireland suddenly turning into an athletics powerhouse ...
  8. Athletics IAAF Under 20 World Championships 2018

    Very sad that the german team threw away a silver medal in the 4 x 400 m womens relay by not using Scheppan. Congrats to China for gold in mens discus throw!
  9. Athletics IAAF Under 20 World Championships 2018

    If 3:32 will be enough to win gold in womens 4 x 400 m relay, the german coaches should be fired. With Scheppan and Schwab this relay could go at least 3:32.

    You mean like at the world indoors this year?
  11. Athletics IAAF Under 20 World Championships 2018

    Very happy for Riecke, not easy to jump a PB under those conditions, hopefully she will continue to improve and go even further at the U20 euros next year. Also very happy for Zeney. Both south african 400 m hurdles world champions from last year have made an amazing progression. Given the current situation in south africa, i am delighted to see a white athlete doing great for them. Tomorrow could bring two golds for Germany, both relays are (clear) favorites. Sadly the womens relay doesn't have Prepens in it, with her instead of Dönicke they should have gone 0,2 - 0,3 faster, which still wouldnt have been enough to break their own world record of course.
  12. Athletics IAAF Under 20 World Championships 2018

    It's great to see how happy those girls are during the victory ceremony (100 m). I know that some people want to get rid of this format and there are certainly problems, but i would find it really sad if officials would take such a great opportunity away from those kids. Let's face it, most of them will never do anything at senior level, so this is a once in a lifetime chance for them.

    We are heading for a Williams vs. Ostapenko final, which also would be the most exciting final with the players that are left. Ostapenko and Kasatkina will face in one semifinal, while Bertens and Williams will face in the the other. Kerber is a perfect match-up for Kasatkina, hard to see Kasatkina not routining her.
  14. Tennis Wimbledon 2018

    So ... ? He also faced a much weaker field. I think if Zverev would have been born 10 years earlier, he would have had a career like Berdych at best. Maybe he will become world number 1 (depending on how soon Federer and Nadal will retire), but he won't win a slam.
