‘Like I’m flying,’ Yap says of Asiad stint

first_img“Special ito para sa akin na makabalik uli sa national team after nine years kaya’t ibibigay ko talaga ang best ko.”“Mas controlled na ako ngayon. Kasi dati para akong kiti-kiti maglaro sa national team,” Yap added. “Mas matured na ako, mas experienced kaya mas maganda na iyong nilalaro ko sa international game.”Gilas Pilipinas head coach Yeng Guiao reminded Yap and Asi Taulava, 45, to give their best in what might be their final time to wear the national colors.“Parang bata nga gumalaw si James (against Kazakhstan) e,” said Guiao. “But I told him and Asi na hindi ko alam kung magna-national team pa kayo ulit, so make sure you give your best, make sure it will make a positive mark in your careers.”“It’s possible that they will be defined in the Asian Games with respect to their career by playing in the national team,” Guiao added. “Ang huling mare-remember ng tao iyong huling stint nila e.”After securing a slot in the knockout playoffs with the 96-59 rout of Kazakhstan last Thursday, the Philippines is gearing up for a tough battle with powerhouse China at 5 p.m. on Tuesday./PN The 36-year-old James Yap, a Rain or Shine Elasto Painters guard, is just in his second Philippine team appearance.

Novak Djokovic deals with pain, Roger Federer faces deficit at US Open

first_imgUK thanks PH for rescuing Brit, Filipino wife abducted in Sulu Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Hardly ideal, on this particular day or in the big picture: Never in the 107-year history of the tournament has a man gone on to claim the trophy after losing the first set in both of his first two matches.What matters right now, of course, is that Federer is still in the draw.Borna Coric, who was seeded 12th, was the latest to exit, withdrawing because of a lower back strain before he was supposed to face Grigor Dimitrov on Wednesday. That followed losses Tuesday by a quartet of top-10 men all on Rafael Nadal’s half of the bracket: No. 4 Dominic Thiem, No. 8 Stefanos Tsitsipas, No. 9 Karen Khachanov and No. 10 Roberto Bautista Agut.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next What a relief!

(AP Photo/Charles Krupa)NEW YORK — Maybe, just maybe, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are feeling some lingering after-effects of their historic Wimbledon final last month.For Djokovic, it’s in the form of a left shoulder that is hurting right now and probably contributed to slower-than-usual serves in the U.S. Open’s second round Wednesday night.ADVERTISEMENT What he chose to focus on, instead, is looking on the bright side: “Can only do better,” Federer said, “which is a great thing, moving forward.”At a Flushing Meadows flush with surprises so far — half of the top 12 seeded men already were gone by the time Federer stepped into Arthur Ashe Stadium — he cleaned up his act quickly.Indeed, Federer was one of the lucky ones who will stay on the usual play-one-day, get-a-day-off Grand Slam schedule. Only matches at Ashe or Louis Armstrong Stadium, the event’s two arenas with a retractable roof, were held.That included a loss by two-time champion Venus Williams to No. 5 seed Elina Svitolina, and victories for No. 2 Ash Barty, No. 3 Karolina Pliskova and 2017 runner-up Madison Keys on the women’s side, and a win for No. 7 Kei Nishikori on the men’s.The night program included Williams’ younger sister, Serena, against 17-year-old American Caty McNally.“You go through a little phase where you don’t start so well and everybody asks you right away, ‘What are you going to do?’ You’re like, I don’t know. Just go back to the drawing board. Just do the same things again. You hope for a better outcome,” said Federer, owner of a total of 20 major trophies, four ahead of Djokovic. “I don’t think there is, per se, a secret to a good start, other than warming up well, being well-prepared mentally, not underestimating your opponent. I did all of that. You know me, I will always do that.”He also ceded the first set to 190th-ranked Sumit Nagal of an eventual four-set victory Monday.Federer called that pattern “just a bit frustrating, more than anything, especially when the level is that low and there is that many errors and the energy is not kind of there.”Against Dzumhur, who is ranked No. 99 now but has been as high as No. 23, Federer fell behind 4-0 after all of 15 minutes. He was sluggish and his shots were off-target, to the tune of 12 unforced errors within the match’s first 19 points.“Basically,” Federer concluded, “the entire set, just sort of donated.” Yeng Guiao admits outright berth to 2020 Olympics another goal for Gilas Singapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics LATEST STORIES Renovation of old sports venues not just for SEA Games use ‘Ghost guns’ are untraceable, easy to make, more prevalent For Federer, it’s in the form of slow starts: He’s lost the opening set each of his first two matches at Flushing Meadows for the first time in 19 times he’s entered the Grand Slam tournament.If they’re going to reprise their rivalry late next week in the semifinals, both will need to improve.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsSPORTSPH women’s football team not spared from SEA Games hotel woesSPORTSThailand claims not enough Thai food, drinks for players at hotelDjokovic was repeatedly visited by a trainer for shoulder massages at changeovers during a ragged 6-4, 7-6 (3), 6-1 victory over 56th-ranked Juan Ignacio Londero of Argentina. Djokovic is a righty, of course, but he uses his other hand both for ball tosses on serves and on his two-fisted backhand — and both were less effective for stretches.“I was definitely tested. This is something I’ve been carrying for a quite a while now,” said Djokovic, who repeatedly shook his left arm between points while serving in his first-round match Monday and did that again this time. “It wasn’t easy playing with the pain and you have to fight and hope you get lucky with some shots.” MOST READlast_img read more
