Football: Boateng must leave Bayern Munich in ten years
09.33 amJerome Boateng’s tenure at Bayern Munich ended after ten years. The club’s management recently informed the German defender that his expiring contract would not be extended. “I explained it to Jerome, he understood it too,” said coach Hassan Salih Hamidic of the Champions League loss with Paris Saint-Germain (2-3) on Sky TV.
Boateng moved from Manchester City to Bayern Munich in 2011. The 32-year-old defender from Berlin, who previously played for Hertha Berlin and Hamburg SV, has become an eight-time champion for the German club and a ninth title appears imminent. He also won the European Champions League and Club World Cup with Bayern twice, in 2013 and 2020.
Partly due to injuries, Boateng hasn’t always been a steady value in recent years. He started playing on the bench against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, but substituted an injured Niklas Sully before the end of the first half.
National coach Joachim Loew decided at the beginning of 2019 not to choose Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller for the German soccer team. They won the world title in 2014 with “Mannschaft”.
Tennis: Barty continues to win on the clay
09.08 am: Australian tennis player Ashley Barty continues to win on the clay. The world number one, who won the WTA Championship in Miami last week, started in Charleston, USA, with a convincing victory over Japanese Misaki Doi: 6-2, 6-1. Barty played her first clay match since the Roland Garros Final which she won in 2019.
The Australian won her first and only Grand Slam title in Paris nearly two years ago. Barty also reached the top of the world rankings shortly thereafter. She still holds that position, although she barely took action last year as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. This season Barty won the Yarra Valley Classic in Melbourne and the Miami Hardcourt Championships. At the Australian Open, she was stuck in the quarter-finals.
“It was a quick changeover after Miami, and I only had a few hours of clay training,” Barty said. “I especially hoped I didn’t get stuck when slipping down the track. Fortunately, I quickly felt familiar again.”
Second-placed American Sophia Kenin, number 4 in the world and last year’s winner in the Australian Open and the finals at Roland Garros, lost in three sets to her compatriot Lauren Davis (4-6, 6-3, 6-4).
Gymnastics: American gymnast Biles may continue until the 2024 Games
08.17 am: American gymnast Simon Biles may continue until the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. The 24-year-old, who won four gold medals at Rio 2016, previously said the Tokyo Olympics would be her last. However, on a digital media day for ‘Team USA’, however, the gymnast told ‘Team USA’ that her French coaches Laurent and Cecile Landi had asked her to go to Paris in three years.
“Right now, my focus is entirely on the Tokyo Games,” Biles said, winning 25 medals (19 of them gold) and is the most successful gymnast ever at a World Cup finals. “After the games we’ll go on a tour of the US with all the girls. I’m really looking forward to that. What do I do next? We have to see that. Cecil and Laurent are from Paris and they somehow forced me back as a hardware specialist anyway.”
Two years ago, Biles said Tokyo would be “definitely” her last summer games, due to an injury in her sport. “I generally never get rid of the pain. I get a little used to the minor injuries. My body has gone through a lot already. Sometimes I feel like I’m collapsing a little.” The American was the big star at the Rio Games with four gold medals. Only on the model, which Sanne Wevers took gold on, did she settle for a different color (bronze).
One of the American sports celebrities, Alison Felix, confirmed on Media Day that “Tokyo” will definitely be their last match. The 35-year-old might last for a while after that, but Paris 2024 is way too far for her. “I don’t see myself doing other games,” said Felix, who wants to go to the games for the fifth time this summer. The 200- and 400-meter specialist won six Olympic titles plus three silver medals.

He also hit five free throws. Durant also scored seven rebounds and five assists. “That’s how I wanted to play,” Durant said. “I didn’t want to start out quietly, but I wanted to be valuable immediately. The pace in the match was really high when I was sitting on the bench, so I knew how to do it.”
