Why is the US Open always unpredictable? (Part 1)

Why is the US Open always unpredictable? (Part 1)

The unpredictability of the men’s singles is becoming the feature of the final Grand Slam of the year.

In the past 11 years, Wimbledon has witnessed two cases of successfully defending the championship (Djokovic in 2014-2015 and 2018-2019), Roland Garros five times (Nadal in the period 2010-2014) and Australia Open four. times (Djokovic the years 2010-2013). At those Grand Slam tournaments, there has always been a dominant player for more than a decade. But since Roger Federer in 2008, no one has won it twice in the US Open.

The most obvious reason is the schedule. Due to being the last Grand Slam of the year, the players who arrived at Flushing Meadows brought with them all the fatigue from the tournaments they had attended earlier. US Open is also an important turning point of the ATP ordering table.

In New York, Djokovic withdrew from a shoulder injury, before Federer lost a match in which he had to seek medical care for his neck and back. Other candidates like Dominic Thiem and Stefanos Tsitsipas also did not have the sharpness to compete, while last year’s runner-up Del Potro was absent. Del Potro has not been an isolated case in recent years. In fact, the fact that the players who made it to the finals of the previous year failed to retain their fitness for the following year has always been a recurring theme.

Last year, Nadal failed to defend the title when he gave up against Del Potro in the semi-finals. 12 months earlier, both players who were present in the 2016 US Open finals were Wawrinka and Djokovic dropped out of the tournament and ended the season early due to injury. Federer also had a similar situation in the US Open 2016. Meanwhile, the rickety body also forced Nadal to skip the 2012 and 2014 tournaments, although the Spanish tennis player was crowned in 2013.

Those facts show that the US Open has become a physical nightmare for players. The fear of getting injured before coming to Flushing Meadows became chronic, and caused the “Big Three” to adjust the schedule. They had to miss one of the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati and Montreal.

The forecast of Opta, Google and Sqawka are different from the bookmaker’s odds, after the draw of the group stage draws on August 29. Because of the same table with PSG and not a good start in La Liga, the ability of teachers and Zidane’s champion only ranked fourth (put 1 to 10), behind Man City (put 2 to 7), Barca (put 1 to 5 ) and Liverpool (order 1 to 7).

Science proves that Messi is better than C.Ronaldo

Science proves that Messi is better than C.Ronaldo

KU Leuven University professor, Jesse Davis, said Messi was actually better than his colleague Ronaldo because he got a VAEP score of 1.21 per game, double that of Ronaldo.

“The value of a football player is often dependent on goals and assists,” said Jesse Davis, a professor at KU Leuven University. “However, goals are a rare event, as average. There are about 1,600 actions happening in a match.

The scores of actions are valued by probability estimates (VAEP) to determine the level of influence both in defense and player’s attack in a match.”

The results show that world football superstar Messi reached VAEP score of 1.21 per game, double that of Ronaldo .61.

Explaining the difference of the two super strikers of contemporary world football, Professor Tom Decroos said: “In the first seasons, Messi and Ronaldo scores very close together. From the 2015/16 season, Messi dropped away from Ronaldo.

We find that most football players will fall into three situations: Or they perform many actions but bring low value – for example, Paul Pogba. Or they act less but bring great value – typically strikers like Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Ronaldo.

Messi falls into a special case. He is active and every movement has great value that contributes to the gameplay “.

Messi continues to compare with Ronaldo in every award

Although Messi has set countless records of world football former Real Madrid coach Jose Camacho still thinks that the Argentine superstar is still not the best in world football history.

In an interview with El Mundo, the Spanish strategist commented: “Messi is an excellent player, but cannot become the greatest football history if he does not win the World Cup with Argentina.

There are teams that winning the World Cup is not so important but Argentina is completely different. Without winning the World Cup, Messi cannot become the No. 1 legend. The World Cup championship is the best title for every player “.

Messi has 4 times to attend the World Cup with Argentina with the best performance is reached to the final before losing 0-1 to Germany after 120 minutes. Also in the 2018 World Cup, Messi and Argentina stopped in the round of 1/8 after losing with the score 3-4 before France, then the team was crowned champion.

Denver Nuggets and the Portland Trail Blazers have created one of the most memorable matches in the NBA playoffs.

The third game between the Portland Trail Blazers and the Denver Nuggets went into the NBA history as the longest match in the playoffs.

However, the Nuggets will have to face disadvantages in both forms and away as well as physical factors when they have just gone through a long game.

Swimming athlete Schooling surprisingly lost at the knack

Schooling is the famous swimmer of Singapore. At the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (Brazil), this swimmer won a gold medal of 100 m butterfly swim, the content he defeated the legendary Michael Phelps, Chad le Clos, and Laszlo Cseh. However, the career of the 24-year-old athlete has fallen after that resounding victory.

At the 2017 World Swimming Championships in Budapest (Hungary), Schooling only won the bronze medal at the forte. 2 years later, he continued to decline when entering the tournament in Korea. At the end of the first round, the fisherman ranked 24th in the list of the fastest swimmers.

Copa America 2019: ‘Nightmare’ still clings to Lionel Messi

Copa America 2019: ‘Nightmare’ still clings to Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi has joined the Argentina team at nine major tournaments, including five Copa America and four World Cups, but has yet to touch the championship once.

Argentina’s national team had to stop at the 2019 Copa America semi-final after a 2-0 defeat to the home team Brazil.

The fact that Scolani’s team is white at a major tournament is no longer a surprise because it is just another defeat of “La Albiceleste” for many years. But with Lionel Messi, “nightmare” has not ended.

The “Tango Country” team has not been able to win a team-level championship in major tournaments since 1993 when they crowned at a Copa America.

Ever since Lionel Messi, the biggest star in Argentina’s post-Maradona era, debuted in the national team shirt in 2006, the fans are still keen on a home team championship. But now, luck has always been “elusive” the player is rated the number 1 star of world football today.

Football fans in the world still cannot explain what happens to Argentine football genius and finally have to accept the explanation that Messi has never been “charming” with the team shirt color. nation.

In the nine major leagues Messi participated in, the No. 10 player played 46 matches, scored 15 goals and created 19 chances for teammates with a goal of 33%.

Meanwhile, in the club shirt Barcelona has scored 614 goals in 719 matches at a rate of up to 85%. Of the 64 leagues in the colors of Catalunia’s team, Messi joined with his teammates to win 34 championships with an incredible rate of 53.1%.

In fact, “La Pulga” did not get the best performance in the 2019 Copa America, but in the semi-finals with Brazil, he still demonstrated the role of leader with high-class passes and assists “boldly Messi. ”

Therefore, the feeling of striker No. 10 when having to carry this suitcase is still sad but not too disappointed as the previous tournament.

At the age of 32, Messi certainly knows he doesn’t have much time with the national team. In the short term, it is possible that “La Pulga” has only 2 big goals to conquer Argentina colors including Copa America 2020 and World Cup 2022.
