Angelique Kerber appoints Wim Fissette as new coach

first_imgFormer world number one Angelique Kerber is hoping to bounce back from a disappointing campaign with the announcement that Belgian Wim Fisette will replace Torben Beltz as her coach in 2018, the German said on Thursday.After winning two grand slams and an Olympic silver medal in 2016, the 29-year-old failed to claim a single title this year and fell to 21st in the world rankings, also losing her spot as German number one to Julia Goerges.Kerber and compatriot Beltz first worked together from 2011-13 and rejoined forces in 2015, with the German pair having their most successful season a year later.”It’s been tough but I’m about to start a new chapter in my career, with a new coach,” Kerber said on her official Twitter account. “Thank you Torben Beltz for everything that you’ve done for me.”The next season is coming soon and I’m very excited to start working with Wim Fissette as my new coach. It’s a new chance and I’m curious to find out what we can achieve together.”Fissette has previously worked with top players such as Kim Clijsters, Victoria Azarenka and Simona Halep, and coached Britain’s Johanna Konta for the 2017 season before the pair agreed to a mutual split at the end of the campaign.last_img read more

Fort St John Chamber of Commerce puts forward Road Infrastructure Policy at

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Chamber of Commerce, along with other Chambers from across the province, were recently in attendance at the 2019 B.C. Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting.During the AGM, the Chamber took part in a policy session where they presented a policy to the Caucus on behalf of Fort St. John and the North Peace.Chamber Executive Director, Cheryl Montgomery, says the Chamber presented a policy that they wrote a resolution on a few months ago regarding transportation in the Region, adding that it does identify the Taylor Bridge as one of the concerns. “We presented a resolution that was written a few months ago regarding transportation and infrastructure in the whole Region. It does identify the Taylor Bridge and the South Taylor Hill as requiring a lot of improvement. But it does cover a general need for infrastructure in the whole Region.”While the issue of the Bridge and Hill are not new, Montgomery says it’s important to keep reminding the Province on the importance of investing in new infrastructure within the Peace as it plays a huge effect on the economy and tourism.Montgomery also says restructuring to the Bridge and Hill is needed immediately as the impact to the area would be catastrophic if either of those were to fail.“Where the real impact will come is if that Bridge ever fails, or if the Hill ever fails. When one of those things fail, we are going to find ourselves in a pretty economically catastrophic position.”The Policy was written and sent to the B.C. Chamber Body, where it was presented at the AGM, and then the Canadian Chamber and B.C. Chamber will eventually lobby it to be passed.This Thursday, May 30, the Chamber will be hosting a Speaker Series Luncheon with Scott Maxwell of the Ministry of Transportation, as a guest speaker, to discuss transportation needs of the Peace Region. Tickets can be purchased from the Chamber’s website.last_img read more

Christchurch attack will change fabric of international sports hosting: New Zealand Cricket CEO

first_imgAuckland: The Christchurch mass shootings will have far-reaching implications for hosting sporting events in New Zealand and elsewhere, according to New Zealand Cricket CEO David White, who said the impression of the country being a “safe haven is gone”. Attacks on two Christchurch mosques left at least 49 dead Friday, with one gunman — identified as an Australian — livestreaming the attack. The Bangladesh cricket team escaped unhurt despite being in close vicinity of a shooting attack on a mosque but its tour of New Zealand was called off. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian Open “This is shocking. This will change the entire fabric of international sports hosting. I think everything changes now,” White was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz. “We’ll certainly be having to look at our security in depth. I think the idea of New Zealand being a safe haven is gone now. “We now have to be very, very vigilant – all the authorities and sporting organisations, absolutely.” The Bangladesh team’s tour was called off after the players had a narrow escape from the attack on a mosque in Christchurch, described as an “unprecedented act of violence” by the country’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Also Read – Fast bowler Behrendorff to undergo spinal surgery White said, “They’re shaken up all right. They’re shocked like everyone else.

Both teams, staff and match officials are safe and the ICC fully supports the decision to cancel the Test match,” ICC Chief Executive David Richardson had said.last_img read more
