"maria zachary" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast

"So there was something on the line, but I think I said in the last part, I wonder how it's going to handle that, you know, because suddenly this is a match without any pressure on, where she's been playing matches with loads of pressure on for months. And very notably, her performance dipped is the worst match she's played for weeks. You know, without that need to win, it's kind of impossible to give your absolute best, but yeah, it's the problem with round Robin, frankly. Yeah. Which is, you know, we've given it a bit of a big up, this week because we had a good side of it early on when Schwarzenegger lost early and then got her chance in Sabine anchor as well in their chance to really show what they're made of in the next match and all the rest of it. But yeah, last night was the last two nights not great, really. I mean there have been some highlights which we'll get onto. But I mean, just to cover off what else went on, Carolina. What a sentence this is. Carolina Pliskova lost the first set 6 love. So that actually made it two consecutive 6 love sets that she'd lost because bliska had lost the second set in her match against her conservate the previous round Robin match as well. And then she came back and she beat Barbara crooked cheek of her, so she's one love 6, and then won the next two sets. But both of them were eliminated. What do I have to tell him that was? Loving round Robin. Honestly. Yeah, it was so the worst of plasma in the first set, you know, not even moving her feet and losing 6 love. And then the best of her, she fought with everything she had to give herself a chance to qualify. She had to win. She did win. And then muguruza went and won in the evening anyway, so her comeback was in vain against critique of her. And they were both eliminated. It's I can kind of relate to political and not bother him to move her feet. I mean, I play tennis once a week. And if I can reach a ball just by leaning over and extending one of my long arms. Which you can normally I'm going to do that. I'm going to bother moving my feet. Anyway, let's talk about the one match that really had something on it. The winner take all match last night between Maria Zachary and arena sabalenka. And it wasn't great all the way through by any means. It was the third set. I mean, they shared the first two sets on tie breaks. Now Saba linka led both of those sets with a break of serve. So really, she will have regrets. She really should have won the match overall. But in the third set, which Sakura eventually ended up winning. It was just a nerve fest, error strewn, and whoever could just handle it quite honestly. What was your take from it? I mean, you've obviously said at the outset that you thought thackeray would reach that stage and reach the semifinals. But given what happened in match two for sabalenka, did you think maybe we might see another turn of events in this particular match? Yeah, I did, actually. I thought sabalenka might carry that momentum that she'd found in the second match against me on tech into this one. She had a very good head to head record against Zachary coming into this. I think she'd won four of their matches, including a couple of absolute thrashings in their most recent meetings. But if I was like one step back sorry one step forward two steps back for Anka to be honest, this tournament. She really got it together against fey on tech. And this match was a mess, really, wasn't it from her? I mean, she served for the first set, as you said, she lost it. She had a set point, didn't take it. She had multiple double faults in the tiebreak and lost that first set. She then served for the second set twice and got broken both times, eventually won it in a tiebreak and just when you think she's got the momentum going into the deciding to set and she's up a break in fact in the deciding set, she hits ten double faults in that third set. 19 in the match altogether. Just 19. Just all over the place with her serve. And it was a sort of familiar tale really for her she's got the game. She absolutely has the game. She's in a winning position. She just can not keep it together in these sort of high pressure situations. And Zachary, we spoke about the other day being at her most dangerous, I think when she's behind in the score and the way the max unfolded kind of suited her, I suppose, because she was behind. She then had these real spurts in the match where she got back into it and just in the end, that was enough to take her over the line. So yeah, I suppose I was a bit surprised that sabalenka didn't finish it off, considering she was in that position, but then history tells us that Sabine can do that. Yeah. But great scenes at the end though, I think, for saccharin, I always find myself drawn to her when she's either struggling or whether she's getting over the line, she just because she lets you in. She doesn't leave anything. Hidden in terms of how she's feeling about things. And I end up really feeling her emotions and pain and suffering and joy when she when she manages to succeed. And she came into the press conference afterwards really, really good, interesting press comments. And then she was kind of asked about the progress she's made and the fact that she's amongst these 8 players now and that she's in this company and that she's been, you know, if you think back, she was a point away from the French Open final and that really hurt her at the time and she admitted that the stress just got to her too much in the moment, and she thinks she'd be better next time. And then she came in at a good run at the USA open and here she is in the final 8, and now she's made the semifinals of the big tournament the WTA finals. And that can get to people can't. Some people can get impostor syndrome and feel like they just don't belong in this company..

"I agree. I love it. I love this nice thing, son at this time of year, isn't it? So used to everything being indoor and wintry. I don't know. I feel like I feel like I'm getting some vitamin D through my TV screen just a little bit. Yeah. No, it does look nice. It's more sort of pastel colors than we've been used to, I think on the tour finals that there will often sort of have really vivid bright colors, but I agree it really. That is not a pastel shade of pink, David. No, it's not. It is not. I think it is. No. It's not. I think it is. No. We're going to get emails and you're going to feel silly. I'm already going to get the emails from what I said earlier. We've got ahead of them, David. Help us out with this one. Is that a pastel shade of pink? I mean, I wouldn't have said so, but I feel like maybe David's had a conversation with his wife. That's an intense strong pink. Did the outer the bluey gray is maybe. I mean, I still don't think it's pasta Lee. But you could make a stronger argument. But the pink is pink. Maybe it's just the color settings on your TV Catherine. Or maybe it's them on mine. I don't know. But anyway, in terms of the question about the altitude, I would say it's having a big effect, and actually it made me look up what sort of altitude we're talking about. Last night, and I think it's one and a half thousand meters above sea level, which is a lot. And here in the players talk about when they first arrived. And all of them were saying that they were having to string their rackets tighter as a result, because they just couldn't control the ball. The ball's flying through the air and suddenly they didn't really know what to do with it and power but also as saying that she started off thinking I need to put more spin on the ball to control it, and then she started to think, well, actually, maybe I need to hit through the ball more to be more aggressive and the real question marks going on in the heads. And the two players that I think, well, showed, I suppose three players if you include, but Zachary just looks perfectly at home on these conditions with her power and her her really muscular topspin. And so did but also really. I mean, that match last night, she was four two down and she won ten games in a row. And yes, I think she was part of that. She spoke afterwards about how she realized four two down. I've got to stand up to sabalenka here. I'm getting pushed around. I've got to meet firewood fire. But Saba link is game. I mean, until four two, I thought, oh, this altitude is perfect for her. It's going to play so fast and she's just going to knock people off the court. But she's got to hit the court. That's the problem, and she was suddenly hitting the back fence because she had no control at all. And it just seems to exaggerate and amplify whatever it is that you're doing. Those conditions. And of course she's the Madrid champion. And that's famously played at altitude. This is much more altitude. It's much. It's much more impactful, I think on the style of play. But in Madrid, it looked like all her shots had boosters on them and you know, I think ash bharti was the only player who really got close to her. She just blew everyone away. But she was in great form that week. And she comes in this week, obviously having had COVID, having suffered with it, I think, for four or 5 days in Indian Wells, being stuck in quarantine there, only paid a couple of matches since she wasn't coming into this in particularly good form. And just a line from the pre tournament press conference that stuck out to me was from Zachary, saying, whoever embraces kind of playing ugly tennis this week and accepts that you're going to make some errors that you're not used to making. That's probably going to be the person that's going to win. And I read that quote, and I thought, well, that doesn't sound like sabalenka to me. I mean, when it starts going wrong, I don't trust her. I know we've seen her at times this year, make some progress with winning when she's not at her best. But the U.S. open semifinal just stands out in my mind. You know, it was a similar match yesterday, started brilliantly wheels came off, never recovered fully. And yesterday was even more extreme and more dramatic because as you said, she lost the last ten games in the match and really wasn't finding the call for much of that time. So yeah, I think if sab ilinca can play well, I think the conditions might help her, but if she's struggling with her game, which it seems like she is, it just seems like an absolute nightmare for her and Paolo bellaso. On the other hand, I thought, just as David said, was great, you know, sort of stepping in when she needed to, but also kind of holding back and letting sabalenka implode most of the time. Yeah. Now before we talk about the last or any singles match that we haven't discussed, I'm this is not good radio folks, but I'm holding up a picture of what the court looks like on my screen to David. So we can establish whether this is a perception thing or whether there is. It looks nothing like that on my screen or on the Instagram picture that I'm looking at at the moment. What can I see what it looks like on your screen? David, that's a picture of two tennis players without the court. On a court, standing on a court, Catherine. I need the pink, David. Yeah, but I don't see the same as you're seeing gathering the image you've got there is nothing like the one on my TV. Okay then. So it was a needless argument which seems to be continuing. There you go, then. That is not bright. Also not pastel. But anyway, this is terrible radio. As Matt said earlier, I've referred it. Anyway. So Zachary scientech. Now I've got this on my screen at the moment having some of it yesterday I'm having a bit of a rewatch of this in light of the statement that we've had from shante after this match. So look, frankly, a pretty one sided win for Maria Zachary 6 two 6 four over eager scient who is in tears at the end of the match, he actually got a time violation for turning her back on the court as Zachary was about to serve on match point because she was she was so upset. She didn't do a press conference. She gave some quotes which were to say, I was just frustrated and sad that I couldn't overcome the stress. I keep forgetting that I still have time to learn how to do that, because playing in the finals for me, it feels like I know a lot about sports, which is maybe sometimes not true because I still haven't been in many situations in those moments. When I forget this is new for me, still it's okay to lose some matches because of the stress. For me, I feel like it's a big deal, and I'm feeling a little bit ashamed that my level was like that. So I was just feeling pretty sad..

"It's actually just going to nullify the sabalenka power game. And maybe it favors someone like a Zachary, for example, who I think is a lot kind of more has maybe a little bit more dimension to the game a little bit more variety and can just sort of war of attrition style when matches on slow courts. So I don't know. There's a lot of there's a lot of ifs and maybes and buts and yeah, I'm not sure I'm not sure where it's going to go. Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if someone like Maria Zachary won won this event because, you know, she's the first time obviously here and she hasn't actually won a title this season. But I just sometimes with this event, you do get a rogue winner because they all deserve to be there. But someone who perhaps will have a big tournament like a week of their life and then, you know, they perhaps won't do much else or this will be like the biggest victory. I'm just thinking about to end Switzerland one this event and we'll see a great great week and you beat your fellow top players in the top 8. But yeah, it's a shame, obviously bharti and Osaka are not there. But we do have a fantastic lineup and the call I think is going to be quite a slow court. It's a higher altitude. So it probably won't favor like the push covers of the world so much. Perhaps that's going to help, you know, perhaps someone like a muguruza or badosa and, you know, in Spain, have got, you know, two players there, which is great. So I feel like even bedou so she does like a slower surface, isn't she? So perhaps she's gonna be a dark horse as well. You know, she won Indian world, why can't she win this? Yeah, yeah, I agree. It's really open. I mean, you've got as well as kind of two Spaniards. You got your two check players in critique, but also hasn't won a title this season. So I wouldn't be surprised if she went and you know, I won this. I mean, she is probably the most experienced player. And it might come down to experience playing being able to play the big points, play the big matches. I certainly think that, you know, when she is on form, she can be very, very hard to very, very hard to beat. And again, she might be a player to watch out for. We just don't know, I think until we see those first that that first match or see other group stages kind of stand up. But yeah, it'll be interesting to see. I think the players scheduled to start, I think, on Wednesday, the draw is midnight UK time tonight. We've also got the doubles Kim as well. And again, another reason I'm not sure about how could she have this going to do? Because critique of it is in the doubles as well, with signac. They are the number one ranked team. So the fact that she's going to be doing double duty at the end of season 5s, that is quite cool. There's probably a little bit of a claim to fame, but at the same time, it's going to be very, very tiring for her no doubt playing lots and lots of tennis after again, a long season where she just again just looks very low on energy at the Billie Jean King cup. Yeah, absolutely. And I mean, I know you'll be supporting Sam Stosur in the double, so you ain't blind. Yeah, it's a lot of tennis. She's played, perhaps it is kind of catching up with her now. But having said that, her and signia have been the standout doubles pairing, really, of the year, them and I am inhibitor. So I wouldn't be surprised if they, you know, just focus all out, this one last week at the end and they have a nice rest in December afterwards. But we await we await this coming draw in this coming week with great expectations. And as we do for the next gen finals, Joel, which are also, well, not also initially. They are in Italy. Italy, obviously you've got both of the tool finals for the men, which is, you know, they're just hogging all of these events. How rude. But it's got a great lineup, this event. We got alcaraz, nakashima, sarin dolo. And that is, I think Juan Manuel Manuel sandell, yeah. Not the other one. Holgar rune, they're in group a, and then we've got Seb called Lorenzo masetti, is it Sebastian Baez? I personally wasn't that okay with Sebastian Baez, but he's there. And Hugo Gaston in Group B yeah, very, very exciting group of players. We have unfortunately no Yannick sinner. No Felix ogier alia seem. And I was a little disappointed. No jettison Brooks Brooks beat either. They've all kind of withdrawn through injury and oh, sorry, but brooksby has withdrawn through injury. I know sinner and oge aliasing are playing Stockholm this week. I don't know if sinner's going as an alternate to the end of season finals. But yeah, for the next gen, it feels like yeah, alcaraz certainly is going to be the favorite. I think quarter as well as that very memorable where I'm not Wimbledon earlier in the season. I'm not really expecting much from the South Americans on indoor hard courts. I saw there, their records. They just feels like they just played right at the moment on clay in South America, the challenger circuit. So I'm not sure how well adapted they are going to be to playing on an indoor hard. I think whole grain also could be quite a dark horse along with Hugo gas on. I think ruins just one his fourth challenger title of the year and obviously Gaston had that memorable run in Paris. So there's a few players certainly inform at the moment. And I think, yeah, ours is probably the one you're looking at thinking, given his wins against top ten opponents. And he beat Yannick sinner in Paris, I think. So you sent me I would install him as the favorite, it would be interesting to see actually how he bounces back from that capitulation really in Paris against Gaston and whether there are any kind of hangovers from that because he is still quite young, still quite fragile and he would do really well, I think to kind of block that out of his mind to just focus on his tennis, but you know, don't know if that's going to happen. Yeah, I mean, I do feel that corner and alcor as the standout favorites. I'd also throw nakashima in with that because he's had a great summer, although more so in America itself. But, you know, what I love about this event, it does throw up some, you know, young new talent and you know, I feel like we know some of these boats fairly well, apart from perhaps Sebastian barriers, but be good to get to see more of him. The main thing really from this tournament is that they are using it as a test bed for new rules and enhancements, perhaps that they may introduce further down the line onto the actual tool. We've got a kind of some of the key changes which the first one shorter warmups. So we're only getting one minute for the warmup instead of four minutes. So, you know, straight out onto court one minute off you go start. Courtside coaching, they're opening up coaching from the sidelines. You don't need headsets, so I guess that's going to be a lot more open and obvious. They are doing limited medical timeouts, only one player per match..

"And I actually think that that may now help her in the early start parts of next year, she's already got that under a belt. Now she can build again, and her game works on kind of all the surfaces. So I'm certainly closer to thinking that she will be part of a mix at some point in my lifetime than I was this time last year. A mix just not the mix. Next question from Nick prophet on Instagram. What would tend to be like if there was only one serve? Who would benefit and suffer the most? Would this impact the women's game or the men's game more if at all? It would surely impact the men's game more? Because it's a more served dominated game more points, cheap points are one on first serve. On men's tennis then, in women's tennis, and when you reduce it to one serve, okay, you'd have the occasional moment where a player would gamble, and that would be an interesting facet to the game, but basically you'd be seeing a second a second serve almost all of the time. Yeah, I wonder whether Nick profit was Diego Schwartzman's alias because. Schwartzman sort of plays the game with one serve. You know, he is at such a disadvantage compared to most of the other players in the field. And yet he's still managed to get into the top ten. I can't really picture his serve in my mind. I don't really notice it. It's a point starter. It really is nothing more than that. I think it hits a spot quite well. He's quite accurate with it. And he certainly just as he gets the most out of all his game, I think he does get something out of his serve. But he is at a disadvantage, a massive one compared to other players and you know, if you take the serve out, he would be doing better, I believe, even better, his return stats are fantastic. I think sometimes you hear sort of non tennis people think, well, why is it two serves in tennis? Like camp pros just get the ball into the court. Shouldn't they be able to do that? And yes, of course, they can. I think it would detract from the game if you took away the second serve. I think it would take away an aspect of the game, which I enjoy, which is a great return. I try and decode a great server, you know, we've enjoyed Andy marry against John Isner or Djokovic against tsonga or Federer against Roddick. Those have been interesting elements to those matches. And I think it would take away variety, which is already diminished. But if there was any one serve, how much volley would we see? I think even less. How many net approaches end up off the back of a good first serve? Then a forehand, and then you come in. I think a lot of variety comes from the fact that you've got that first serve. I think you'd end up with way more just baseline rallies. And look, that's fine. I enjoy that. I probably enjoy that more, but I like the variety as well. And I think it would impact the men, but also it would impact the women, you know, Serena Williams is served. I think the greatest server of all time. If she only had one serve, would she have been as dominant? I think ash parties. Number one in the world at the moment. For lots of reasons, but I think her serve underpins a lot of her success as well. And leads to some of her variety the way she sets up her point with that. So I think it would look quite different tennis. And I think it would be worse if you just have one. I would like one tournament per year to feature only one serve. I feel that about a couple of aspects to the sport. You know, I wish there was a sort of a themed tournament. And I think that that could work. I think the players that I thought of that would benefit or certainly still be just as strong aside from the ones with very strong baseline games are the ones that have really reliable actions that can put loads of kick on the ball, who have just great second serves as it is. And I actually think bharati would prosper. I think Maria Zachary would. Players that can just really get the do more than just start the point with a reliable serve. I think I do think Djokovic would be even more dangerous. I think he would have had an even better career. If that was the case, I think somebody likes vero would have been nowhere near as potent, personally, because I think he wins only three points, but anything he could get more wobbly sort of thing. He couldn't do the going full out necessarily on a second serve. I don't think all the time, the way he's tended to do recently. But yeah, I'd happily have one tournament a year and try it out. I'm very on board for themed tournaments like that. Still want my one racket tournament as well. Yes. David law does the past. We've got a couple more questions. So we might have to go have to go a little, not quite quick fire. Medium paste fire, please. For remaining a couple of questions. The first comes from slash PG 22 on Instagram. Not sure what's going on there. What do you think of the electronic line judging? That we've had in recent tournaments, good bad, irritating slash takes out the faffing less drama, et cetera I mean, I'm all for taking out faffing. As we've established on this podcast, to be honest, I don't have massively strong feelings about it. I think it's fine. I don't know, I wouldn't sort of campaign for it to stay. I also am not going to march for the return of line judges as much as I feel for them in the sort of the erosion of that profession. You know, I don't think sort of stalling technological advances is the answer to that. I definitely definitely definitely am opposed to video review of a call that is not going to be changed. I find that ludicrous. But I'm aware that what they're trying to do with that is recaptured the fun of a hawk challenge. But it doesn't. It doesn't. And it doesn't. There's no fun to it whatsoever. No, none at all. It's ludicrous, get rid of it now. Get rid of it, but it's an acknowledgment that something is lost. We've lost the fun of the hawkeye challenge. Again, I don't feel that loss too keenly. I am okay with it. So I just find it hard to get riled up either way on it's a rare. It's a rare topic that I am not riled up about. Turin will be interesting in that way because they're going to have it back. They're going to have hawkeye challenges during the ATP finals..

"Tuesday on the BBC World Service 12 Minutes past the hour. The International Atomic Energy Agency has announced a thorough review of Japan's decision to start pouring a million tons of contaminated waste water from the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant into the sea. On a visit to Tokyo, the agency's deputy director general said it's inspection will be comprehensive and objective. China and South Korea as well as local Japanese have all reacted angrily to Tokyo's plan. The government has made assurances the water will be diluted to safe levels before being released. Dr. Paul Dorfman, senior researcher at the Energy Institute of University College. London joins me now an expert in this field, is it safe Putting this water into the sea? Do you think Um, it's a Hobson's choice. Um it's it's common procedure for nuclear power plants to discharge wastewater to the ocean, and, but that's sort of highly regulated. Um, what we're talking about. Here is a huge It's million tonnes. It's a unprecedented amount. And this nuclear waste water comes from cooling water injected with molten damage cause after the incident, as well as ground water, rainwater seeping into the reactor, so this water was in direct contact. With the melted core react to call. So, um, you know the leaks of reactor cooling system and groundwater flowing into the basement of the damaged reactor and the turbine building. You know, uh, have both been, uh, introduced radio and both introduced radio material you know, into into this washed, so there are significant questions about the relative safety of this idea. Are there ways in which that water can be made safe? I mean, Japanese authorities seem pretty convinced they can do it. Presumably, it's easy to set than done. Yeah. Contaminated water is treated through processing and advanced liquid processing system Alps to which intends to remove the radio, nuclear except for treaty. Um uh, but this is, you know, it's a It's on it's unknown territory if it really can do things, And of course, what we're seeing is a very, very high concentration of of treating radio nuclear in this wastewater, and if one looks at the trajectory of the risk from treat him Once he's uh as each decade passes, Uh, the risks of treaty in understanding about the recent treat him have gotten higher and higher Now, the problem with this is that Um, these radio nucleus have a high biological concentration factor and sea floor sediment sort of. Water distribution coefficient. What That means is basically is that they kind of tend to fall to the bottom to the trophy levels and to stay there, so the ocean currents went, won't be removing this so they will accumulate on the seabed. In seas near Japan and then via the food Web. What we'll see is a is returned to land and returned via, uh, via the food web to humans. So what? Why people would be concerned?

We're talking Amazon, which has, uh, a bit of a reputation for being mean with wages now is offering to pay college fees for any of its staff in America who are paid by the hour. That's about three quarter of a million people. I think it sounds expensive. Yeah, Amazon says it's going to invest $1.2 billion in this scheme, and if you're a worker at Amazon, you'll be able to take money from that fund for As long as you stay at Amazon. I mean, it's expensive to go to college in America, or it can be very expensive. A lot of people borrow money to do that.

Then Amazon will help out. Um it's not going to be just four degrees. It will also be help people to perhaps finish high school diplomas. People who never graduated high school or learn English as well. And Amazon says this will be available at hundreds of education partners across America. It doesn't actually state which ones those are going to be, but it's a way that you know Amazon can try to To keep good stuff to attract good stuff. And, you know also, it might save money, too, because it doesn't have to train staff so much not the first company in America to make a similar offer, though. No, that's true, but it is probably the biggest. I mean, Amazon likes to talk about itself as the world's biggest jobs creator, so WalMart and target both discount retailers they've offered to fund workers education in similar ways. I think one of those is actually Walmart says that it will pay the Constitution and also books. For people who are paid by the hour and that about 1.5 million people who work for them will be eligible for this and target. Its rival says he would offer free undergraduate degrees to more than a third of a million people at its employees at its U. S stores. I mean, you know it does sound generous, but it's not as generous. I think the most generous is a waste management company, which doesn't just offer free tuition or tuition help to its staff, but also its staff's Children and spouses as well. Mm. Interesting stuff. And you would thank you very much..

"The last area to hold out against the Taliban. The Taliban, who are now in control of almost all of Afghanistan, say they have taken over pension too. But the resistant fighters have been battling them reject this. What isn't in doubt, though, is that the humanitarian crisis is developing their families trapped inside the narrow valleys don't have enough food or medical supplies and a cut off from the outside world well, one Australian Afghan charity called mob. Oprah's promise is operating in the region is seen as the acting general manager who founded the organization with his mother. And they still have many close friends and family in the valley. A welcome to the program Now eat. So what can you tell us about the latest situation in the Valley? Thanks for having me the situation is, as you described. It's live. It's ongoing. Nothing can come into it. Uh, there has also been a An intense forced ejection of many people. So what you have alongside the humanitarian crisis is a human rights crisis where people are being forced Saturday homes, Many are leaving paint shift. And the most recent images that we saw is just this blockade on this massive people at the road, so nothing is going in comes a cut. Electricity is cut. Um this place there's a large amount of displaced people and the situation is dire. Presumably, you must be extremely concerned about people. You know. They're who you're now, perhaps out of contact with. We are. We've been operating in Panjshir Valley for 25 years. Many of our projects, women and Children. There are schools, their libraries. Um, orphanages. Uh, all of our world has been there. Many have been evacuated to safety, but those who are Live there. Where can they? Where can they go? Um, we we just started to hear contact, and it's not good. We've been hearing of so many youth that have been killed, not even in in in a process of resistance, but just someone that rejects someone entering into their door. Um, it's it's deeply worrying. Uh, we remain heavily concerned. Is the implication of all this that if the situation isn't completely resolved at the very least, one could say that the Taliban appear to have the upper hand. They appear to be on the way to conquering that whole area. I think that from what we hear all of they have not entered the side Valleys and resistance forces remain, um, in the mountains. Only a few side bodies have been entered. But the situation for civilians is dire. And this is why we are organizing right now. A couple we've been We've been continuing to operate and dispersed aid in a camp in the north of Kabul, and now we're organizing for eight, um, to be sent to painter Valley humanitarian aid everything. Send food. Babies, Babies milk, but we need a path and a guaranteed to be let in the world needs to look at what's happening. Yes, that was my question. How do you get into a into an area like this? I mean, will it require essentially The agreement of the Taliban. This is what we're currently trying to navigate and this is why we're calling on the international community to really look towards the humanitarian crisis in the region. All these civilians were caught up in the conflict, the UN, you know everyone needs to turn their attention because it's only through international pressure that the Taliban will allow aid to come in. And but we're preparing and we're going to try our best to get in. All right now we've seen acting general manager of Mahmoud was promised talking there about the pen share value, the focus of many people's attentions in Afghanistan and throughout the world and a couple of top headlines this morning, President Biden has announced sweeping measures to require Americans to get vaccinated against coronavirus, saying patience is running out for the unvaccinated.

She couldn't hold it. And it was because she was choking because Layla Fernandez was that good and later, Fernandez did not give up. She did not back down and plus, she was playing house money. The cloud. The crowd was clearly on her side at Flushing Metal at Armstrong Stadium, because they know when somebody has that it And they did not want that to go away. Then that was going to be something that people always going to rally around. We saw back in the early nineties. Remember Jimmy Connors had that run? At the US Open. People still talk about that to this day what he did in 1991. They couldn't even tell you when the U.

Now in less than an hour. Andrew El Salvador in Central America becomes the first country in the world to accept Bitcoin as legal tender. So landmark day. How do Salvadorians feel about their place in the financial history books? Well, I think the best they're a bit baffled, and at worst, they're rather worried and rather angry about this. People have actually been protesting in the streets about this about the government's decision to accept Bitcoin as legal tender in addition to the U. S dollar, which is the main currency of the country uses Let's talk now to Billy Bambara. Who's the Cryptocurrency and Blockchain reporter for Force. Good morning to you, Mr Bandera. Um I suppose the big question is why, Why yourself Salvador doing this? Well, the for mixed reasons. Um, it's a plan that's been entirely spearheaded by the country's quite young populist president, Nyad Kelly. He put this plan forward in just June, and it has already passed into law just a few weeks later, and now the big day has come and the country has already begun buying Bitcoin they now have. The country now has 400 Bitcoin tokens on its balance sheet. A country can have a balance sheet, but it holds them. Um and, uh the broad plan really is to hopefully benefit from the kind of price rises the Bitcoin has seen over the last 10 years. The price of Bitcoin has risen tens and tens of thousands percent and in a relatively short amount of time, so there is hope that that kind of rise if it continues, will enrich the country, but in the more short term It's hoped that using Bitcoin for Remittances, which is people sending money back home to friends and family in the country will make that a lot cheaper. Now it's not exactly understood how that will work because no one's done it before and sending Bitcoin transactions and actually, quite expensive compared to lots of modern Internet banking. So Not entirely sure how that will work, but they're going to try and figure out as they go, really? Because, as I said, this has been quite a rush plan with relatively little scrutiny placed upon it. I don't think this could have really happened in many Western democracies. Web habits of large scale economic experiments generally not done without a huge amount of discussion and scrutiny bit And yes, Okay, Democracy there is is struggling to withstand this kind of them Pushed through.

"Going to take a look back at all. The other results from roland garros and before we talk about the ladies semifinals. Joe we have a british two outs round of applause at yet. Joe salisbury has won the mixed doubles with desert krawczyk. he's american partner But used to. This is the first british tie to at road and garros in thirty nine years which is an incredibly long amount of time. It's coming home where wherever heard that before. Oh gosh does this mean. England are gonna win the year but yeah they they came through the corrosive and sheena to six six ten five in the match tiebreak. So yeah jason was. Brady has made history Full for great britain and the last person to win the title which was also. The mixed doubles was john. Lloyd i think we've i think in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. I think it was. I wasn't anyway so fantastic. Rejoice break You know he's won. Men's doubles appropriate. I think this was his first mixed title. I mean against the really think really hard. Tricky opponents in croats have envisioned nina. I think they were quite disappointed. I think they were the better team for the majority of the match. But of course. Check in and salisbury really came into their. I'm particularly in that championship. Tie-break at the end cry was particularly. Glad my fake. Afterwards he definitely was legally founded heart despite all but it was interesting to actually say. I don't know what it is capable of craft set if it's his first event or whatever he just seems to go in a bit of a run. Because i think this was his first mixed. Doubles event I think in certainly an integral slam and yeah all the way through to the final probably version The probably not had any factors time or law practice on before. Say we ve very impressive from them but joyce oseberg kind of winning it for the brits in very very very impressive interestingly though not going to be teaming up when putin he's already kind of confirmed he will be with harry dot so you know this. I mean i guess on the one great. Because that's an old british partnership at home soil up to say. But i guess at the same time you might be thinking ooh have i have i have. I confirmed to see that. Should i do szucs hat. Baron check with marc doubles partner. A baby do a switcheroo. maybe yeah. Harriet scope big shoes to fill now. This big pressure there. Yes i i should say. I've just looked up nine thousand nine hundred eighty friendship and mixed up and it was a jordan. Lloyd and wendy turnbull. Say not j. jerry. Jerry did win. The wimbledon mixed doubles jeremy bates and also the a. Oh say. That's that's who i was thinking but anyway yeah so it's wendy tumble but Yes so anyway fantastic Spray and you just mentioned a bear and maha actually. They are in the men's doubles final. Say that back together now. So i think he's forgiven. Time heals always yes exactly. Am but they all playing click. He potentially what was going to out in the first round of the singles which never happened is focused on the men's doubles. Yeah he's playing with ghalibaf. That's an all. Catholic kazakhstani pairing against the old french. Pairing i watched a baron doubles on the tally and they came through ingredients as much against bottom fire and the french crowd going out see wild saves it was really fun to watch 'em so i'm sure the crowd might get them the edge. I feel in the final and then we should also mention the women's doubles because we do have Babur critique giver in the final Of the of the women's doubles with casuarinas and yakovenko. So she is into the women's doubles final is one of the women's singles final which is insane so she's she's evenings becoming the first person to win both titles since i think mary pasted it in two thousand say a good twenty one years ago now but we're going to be paying eager film deck and bethany magic zahn so each film check you know. She may not so we in the singles but she's come through in the doubles. And yeah that's going to be a really good find looking for the doubles elaine. Say i'll be happy with. I mean it'd be nice. Critiques can do the double a or to come away. At least one title but it would be really nice fish villain tech to get the doubles. I mean bethany matic signs as well. I think this is her first major final in a while that she had that awful injury would wimbledon. I can still remember those screams a lot. Permanently attached is pleasant. Yeah i'm yeah. I mean talking of chicks cover cassettes. Let's talk about the. Let's talk about how rotten in the doubles and singles should be. Maria zachary in a really really good french open semifinal One seven five four six nine seven on a fifth match point. She'll saved one along. The way match lasted over three hours. It was a very very good match for probably for fans that he probably might not have full. It was going to go go that way but yeah really really impressive stuff and before. I guess we talk about that much. I mean just talking about the the singles and doubles conundrum because we spike about that one One of our round-by-round podcasts. Few days ago and regards to should feel intact tech. And i you know i was. Kind of opinion that she shouldn't have gone into the doubles. I think as a as a single specialist working to defend her title. I just thought that was a step too far. But critique uva i. I would say i know. She's she'll probably hate me for saying this but coming into this tournament. I think a lot of people would have still seen her as a doubles specialist. I know she's had a few singles breakthroughs season. But it's interesting to see the if she's coming from this issue came into this as doubles entered the singles. Probably you know as she was there on site and was able to get in through the rankings cetera but she is able been able to kind of get three to both of the finals and that has been really really impressive given the perez i think other players have faced likes field tack and have sort of you know fooling fooling a hurdle along the way but fakhr achieved to do that and to it from seemingly out of nowhere has been very very impressive. Yeah well. I mean she's playing well. She's playing well regardless of whether singles doubles and yes she was. She is primarily known as a doubles specialist but You know she she back in the day. She was world number three in ingenious. She reached the dubai final this year. She's one in strasbourg so she she clearly wants to be a singles specialist. She's become very eight exceptional out the doubles over the last couple years. And it's been well number one in doubles. And i think if she wins the doubles this weekend she will actually go back. One in doubles as well but has singles ranking has been steadily increasing. I think she's she's ranked thirty three at the moment. Says she is just outside the top thirty. And i'm sure that will show go up. I don't know exactly to where she will go out depending on the result this weekend but She she clearly. I think has career being a b side tracks in the double would save the last few years and she's probably coming back now to where sheaves the envisaged the she would be maybe a couple of seasons guy. I think she's she's she's she's very she's set plain and simple Kind of think in terms of how career i think she was frustrated at being potentially kind of labeled as a doubles specialist. That was not what she wanted to be when she kind of grew up. And i think this particularly this french open. This is a statement. I think to these people. He perhaps label her as a double specialist. Like no. no. I'm not you know i. I've still got the obstacle the the scale and the the ability to really work on the single circuit as well and to get to the final to be very game. Maria zachary in the semifinals was very very impressive. I caught the last set of this. It was much drama. Because it was so i think unpredictable. There's so many twisted tons that even though it felt i think critique uva was kind of i think second-best stuffing for quite a bit of match. She's able to kind of come through. I loved her kind of on call. And it was a big contrast. Thout between sacree who is a very emotive player and feeding very much. I think feeding off the energy of the crowd and very vocal..
