Padusa does not come to Den Bosch with the WTA title
09:57: Tennis star Paula Padusa doesn’t travel to Den Bosch with the WTA title in his pocket. On Friday and Saturday, Spain, opponents of the Netherlands in the Billie Jean King Cup, lost narrowly to Swiss Belinda Bencic in the quarter-finals in Charleston.
The 24-year-old, ranked 3 in the world, lost 2-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4 to Swiss Olympic champion Belinda Bencic, in the claycourt tournament in the United States. The match lasted two hours and 47 minutes.
Padusa will be captain of the Spanish team in a week. Her compatriot Garbiñe Muguruza canceled the meeting in Maaspoort. The Dutch team is led by Arantexa Ross.
Bencic will compete in Charleston in the semi-finals against Russian Yekaterina Alexandrova. Another semi-final fight is between American Amanda Anisimova and Ons Jabeur of Tunisia.
The Mavericks won the NBA by 50 points over the Trail Blazers
08:56 AM: The Dallas Mavericks suffered a major defeat in the NBA Portland Trail Blazers. The difference was at least 50 points in Dallas, which became 128-78 thanks in part to 39 points from Luka Doncic. After the first quarter, the difference was 23 points (36-13).
Doncic scored 39 points and made 11 rebounds. The Slovenian only needed half an hour to produce it.
The Dallas Mavericks are already guaranteed to reach the playoffs. The question is whether the Mavericks will finish third or fourth. They have a slightly lower winnings balance than the Golden State Warriors (51-30 at 51-29).
The Mavericks will meet the San Antonio Spurs in their last game of the season next weekend. And then they won’t have superstar Doncic, who made his 16th technical mistake this season.
Doncic’s side opened the qualifiers for the first time since 2011 with a home match.
Athlete Brinkman gives up the World Cup and chooses the marathon in the European Championships
08:32 AM: Ninke Brinkmann picks up the marathon this summer at the European Athletics Championships in Munich, Germany, and ditched the World Championships in Eugene, America. “I think it would be good to gain experience first in a European championship close to home and wait a little bit longer before the World Cup,” said the 28-year-old, who set a time of 2.26 in Valencia last year for her marathon debut. 34 ran.
With that time, I’ve qualified for the World Cup and the European Championship, which will take place fairly soon this summer. Next Sunday will be the Dutch trump card in the Rotterdam Marathon. She ranks fourth on the starting list after Stella Barsozio (Kenya), Haven Hailu (Ethiopia) and Rose Chelimo (Bahrain).
The former hockey star is in the spotlight in the world of athletics, with her 2.26.34 being the third fastest time ever managed by a Dutch athlete. Only Lornah Kiplagat (2.23.43) and Hilda Kibet (2.24.37) were faster than ever. “I experience this interest as very positive, but I still have to get used to it. I stayed relaxed about it, but it sure is overwhelming. It’s crazy to realize that I belong in the first place in the Netherlands by one stroke. Maybe it’s a good thing I’m not used to Even now, then I can still stick to my old patterns.”
