"He has the game to really challenge that you know the best the best players in the rankings. Definitely i mean. I think i'd always discounted tefa. Because i think that was quite a bit of hype and t squad. He struggled quite bit last year or so and hasn't had the results that you know performances that we would have expected hence i had written him off completely so i think he'll be looking to really build on on this match on his performance hair and i think even terms of jackovitch. I think he'll minded. Having a bit of a battle know holds him in good stead later in the tournament. And i think it's quite interesting what they've been saying about the who playing quite fast and he said that you know about the players have mentioned not as well which i don't know if have they done anything to the cool to consciously make it false or is it just because of the conditions it's just quite interesting If if it has not changed or not because we are seeing. I mean jovic served twenty six in much getting staff which he doesn't strike me as someone who would usually say that number in a in a typical match i mean i suppose see. They were all games games in this match. But i didn't know. I'd have to investigate the differences between his serving status From say his average lost share. But it's quite interesting. It's particularly noteworthy for jock itch because he could potentially in his round three and round full match could come up against To quite big service. I mean he could play milosevic in round four so of course he. He was kind of the the the core. Isn't that foss because that would be a lot more free points for someone with big satellite round niche. But he's also got taylor fritz next round. Who has a pretty handy. I on him and you know if if it is true that the courts are playing a little bit quicker regardless of whoever is the conditions or that specific cool whatever it is a that might mean the his opponents might get few few more cheap appoints might be able to kind of push piss chocolate chip it more. I will say though with respect. We him before about jovic is tie-break records and is it is exemplary. The think is one of the best on the tour and he really needed that in that third set when he when he came through after losing the first tie-break in in the second set. So it'll be interesting to see but we will joke of it. She's one of the best returners overtime. I'm sort of expecting him to have an easier. Right against taylor fritz. But i'll be curious to see what the the ace count is for both players. Yeah definitely mean to about seven joe. I chuckled to myself. When i saw romney had made it into the third round. Because i know you love sorrow ronnie serving as she she had my love. She loved warsaw. Ronnie's bull toss okay. i'll allow you the voter. Well she had a very good day. Yesterday she beat venus williams. Six one six love which was sorry to see because venus injured herself was injured in that match and was rating brady struggling and refused she. She refuses to retire. basically from a match says she catch. She kept on going. And you know it was very sad to see how bowel in such way. But i mean credits have for carrying on when she was oversleeping quite lots of pain but yeah it does. Ronnie qualifier is into the third round. Say that you go and we will say had other notable names Being defeated yesterday. We had patrick vetiver leasing to use. Rana stay in three sets not a total surprise. Cassirer is one of those plays on day. Who is capable of a scout. Like that. And then i suppose more. Interestingly perhaps was bank-owned rescue bowing out to sea way shea in straight-sets I mean we'll see. Shay played very very well and always a tricky by leg and very different game but oj ascii able to figure out what to do and you know being the leftover quiet just yet either. Yeah i watched. I went to bed watching this match. And i felt on rescued distant. How to solve the rubik's cube. The is in box of box of tricks on call. And i think this was one of those matches where because shah is such a unique kind of proposition when you face or the school the that she has been out for four hundred fifty days or whatever. Whoever you kind of have hitting partner. It's just not going to be able to give you. i think. Th if gave the e bike face tubs of what you come up against sioux cheyenne. I think particularly in the opening exchanges. Even daesh was as hard as on rescue. She's able to kind of manipulate a move on rescue cool with quite conceivable actually and I think that will definitely be a a a learning experience for ondraskova in terms of that. Different style wherever she needs to have a bit more variety. I know other players have come unstuck again she. She's just such a unique eat player. Unique the. I think you saw that as well with the with the post-match interviews didn't we yes because the corps percents go on about her age and seaway shea kind of who could them out on it because he's kind of getting a bit long in the tooth everyone bringing up everyone's age not it's the new motherhood of twenty twenty one if you know. Somebody's martha your x years old. So yeah good on her. Venus williams had the same of line of argument i think. Let's say let's say in round one rough on the dow's been so it's been reference to him in post package just feel like it's quite lazy just now yes. We have players who are playing over thirty five etc. It's dislike great. Let's talk about tennis and you performance. I think that should have been the the. Yeah that really should be the starting point and then the focus because she's cisco is such a unique style style of play. The suspect one of those is a fantasy. You just watch him person to kind. Believe it and it was kind of shows you you can. You can play this way and still have a have a career on of on the wj tour and beat the well and be a grand slam. Champion i also think it's impossible not to like seaway shay. She's just should in daring person to watch. I think it's really impossible to cheer against her even if she was by your favorite player. It's kind of like. Oh but way. Shane So yeah like really pays her and she fool. Food fully deserved victory. I mean the other big name that went out. Yesterday was stan. The man stabbed rinca leasing it in five sets off to having match point in the match. Tiebreak the tie-break stab was nine six not tie-break and then lost to modern ch eleven nine in the in the tie-break so he'll be a bit disappointed to have kind of blown that one 'cause you'd have had money on him. Wouldn't you having these three consecutive much winston and not claiming victory particularly frustrating. Him another player. Kim who had who saved much. Who's matchpoints down Nick curious he had a a gain a roaring match a of curious match against google unbear- came through six four in the fifth I mean it had everything Picking highlight for me. Nick gangrene the let cord device a it was just again. It was just a fantastic entertaining match. I think it was. You know it wasn't the most technically amazing but it was it was it was funny to hear. I think nick curious say off to his. That was one of his. You know he was saying himself. That was his one of his own. While this match is she said that is one of the craziest matches. I've ever played which i think by nick aerial standards. I think that says something..

"Okay came. So we've had the second half of all of the round four matches today apart from. People. On people and off Daniel Collins, on Danielle Collins are going to be playing tomorrow because of the weather. But let's let's talk about the matches that have happened and let's start with. Let's start with. Patrick Evita because we have just spoken about is. Issue now, the inherited favorite from Saleh because they're all, they're all think a significant number of fans and the people in the press people in the media who would probably say you know Patrick vetiver is is looking is looking very good and you know even though she's not been the greatest kind of clay court player in the possum using this is I know you have second appearance in quarterfinal? Ever Ah at the French. Open. Nothing first twenty twelve. A law people saying that she is now she is now the favourite I mean she came through quite easily against Jiang hsi-wei six, two, six, four, one, hour, twenty, five minutes. I mean, what do you think I mean I feel like we're on a collision course for potentially. A cannon semi final. But do you think what would you think about Kavita? What did you think she stands kind of getting into the second week of the French Open. Well. She's Lower Ziegler next and have to say that Christmas the favourite for that one given. A format grandma she's a two-time select Sim champion and Reach final last year. So I mean, yes she's not being at this stage of girls for years but Her ability is is still that and have formed today was very impressive. Hairpin wasn't really anything ever going to particularly challenge. For just managed the Powell Haredi so you. Would expect. To come through against Zeke but I think. I think, yeah that that semi that we will kind of looking with. That would be with Kenan is the maybe the Perhaps, that will be the batch for the tournament riddick given the fact that they're the only to slam champions left in it but some. Yeah, I'd like to see Kavita win another slam I think. She was quite, very strong. Thanks Day because you know the horrendous knife attack a couple of years back and I, think it was three years ago the at road and where she came back from that I almost back so. I think it'd be back in at this stage in the last eight of the tournament hair. It's it does mean a lot to her and I think if she can kind of channel that that. I I wouldn't be surprised if she went and won the tournament Joe. Yeah she's always kind of bear isn't a dangerous player which puts it all together. It's interesting because we look at. Grand Slam record she's those two titles at Wimbledon and I think that's where you know see the British public fell in love with her but we don't really associate with being able to do it on a on a clay court and you look at. How qualities in terms of you? Now, she is a very powerful hitter from the baseline and you you. You know obviously that works very well on a on across court. but yeah, I. Think into the French Open on clay cool I was just wondering. How how how is that going to work because she really sort of a loopy. Heavy for. So apply she hit like a little bit more flat but I mean, she still has even these calls. She still has kind of the. She still has the power to hit clean winners I mean she hit twenty three. Against Changsha today. And Yeah I just think I just wonder if you know she's going to be able to just kind of blow away the competition with with that sort of that sort of play wherever she can whether she can keep I know she's going to have hodder opponents if down the line with potentially. Kevin Kennon in the in the semifinals Siegelman as well is going to be you know no slouch. So. Yeah it's. It's. It's still kind of I. Think there is danger that. I think. Looking at butterball feeder before the total dating, we were thinking the. Candid. Could be the loss to seats. The law seeds left it on in the bottom half of the draw but. Hey. That's that's where and you know this French Open has been unpredictable but convertible I think has shown so far that she's been A. She's been pretty solid and lift up. I mean she's lived up to her seating so far yeah. She hasn't come through with any major dramas and I think Joe is most natural SF space or the one that we would associate with she has won a few of the Klay Premiere Events Unai she's one Madrid Tom's thing. So I think especially with indoor play she's she's she quite likes that so I think necessarily this. Is. A, really fall score is going to be perhaps a massive issue I today I mean Zeke. Men today she came through against Paulo. DOSA. In straight-sets, she's off to that first round. Of It and the drama of the double bounds she's been making swift progress through and. Some fog still to lead that game. LITERALLY WITH PEOPLE ARE PAINTING OF DOOMSDAY scenario we've kind of like. Ziegler. Zeke. But there's always going to win the French Open. How she could live for the rest of our life knowing that she double bouts did that I rattled to get rich. How she lived with. Renault in that. Scenario just yet but. Hov Today Zeke decided to during her payments medical timeout. She went over to get a nice top of noodles or something. And then she decided that with a full eating eating a box of carbs and she said she, she was kind of a bit loan call. She wants to have a a sugar rush but she didn't really found see like on an open on she wants something really substantial. So she also. Get some some up and she just sat ain't as a say I love I love how you the script or the take out via physio. Is Not the. really interesting though because it's not something. We see. If I can remember. The. Incident the. Brought to my mind. Maybe for British fans, there's been Marcus Willis. A think a few years ago. I had a can of coke and a snickers bar on shaven. It gave me kind of flashbacks of that but I've never.

"Perfect for gonna look send us dot com. Sticking with the women's of the notables was naked went out, but I mean her leg with practically employer. Stor. I couldn't really believe it when I saw her hobble out onto Philip shut trae. It was difficult. Sight, seeing somebody plays so clearly injured, especially somebody like was Nike. He's obviously not that to collect the first round prize money. You know what, why why risking it by putting yourself out those, especially at a light with Kerber slam were, she's never really going into the French Open believing that she has a chance of winning it. I didn't think and yet she on the first six. Yeah, it's difficult. I think generally with was Kayla moment. We know that she's suffering with an illness, that is chronic and. She's really struggling this year and her ranking she was number one in the world just over twelve months ago. And now especially on clay and expected her to perform typically highly, but even the other events. She's not been a huge factor. This this year is is, is quite tough to walk Sheila moment. Yeah. Degree with that some stages when three in? I mean I like Bob was great fun. But I'm pleased for some stays that happened over on Simone. Mature net p one Ashkenazi another one in the Suda KiKi burdens category of just she's unremarkable won three straight sets three and three. That's just what you expected today. Yeah. Absolutely. And she is in the Serena section so as she was launched. And that was kind of a performance that awakened Serena last year, wasn't it when she Pete Barton jets pull out that Mexican Sharapova? But then she went. Onto make fun of women in the US. So it'd be. I think bow-ties much better play this year, though. So that is a fourth round the I would love to see happen. At least mountains is one through who I think we decided with kind of cut off the, the champions, the mix cutoff inside. So at least Mertens three to the second round remaining in the mix, but an unfortunate thing happened in the women's tour today was that Patrick Vetiver poked out before play started? I think. It was early with a great to tear in her left four which before the tournament. She had said in her press conference, I'm here, I'm ready to go. I'm fine. And then. She seems to do something maybe in practice, so many grades all that is. It's great to out of time now. I'm I think in grade. One is the least severe right. I have. Ten I'm pretty sure I've had four main goal. All right. Say, okay. But I think she said two to three weeks out. She's hope for Wimbledon. And if she doesn't sound like a ten does it. To. It's not a two out of team. Oh, how many people are still listening coz Houthi seventh birthday everyone? We really hope she's fit for Wimbledon. Yeah. Because she is been playing so well, oh yeah. I like and so on so consistently. Well, she's been putting it together week we Cal..

"Stroke African football the post-season contenders in the NBA taking shape the LA clippers and the Boston Celtics have sealed their spots in the postseason after victories over the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Cleveland Cavaliers respectively. And in the tennis the Miami open. Patrick Vetiver will not be going back to world number one spot because she is out beaten by Ashleigh Barty quarterfinals and in the menstrual. Novak Djokovic the world number-one has also gone beaten in the fourth-round by Spain's. Roberto bautisita are good more sport sport today. Nine hundred thirty GMT. Thank you. This is Newsday from the BBC. It's twelve minutes to the hour. We're gonna talk about a sort of underground archive which is being compiled in the past few years by on next guest. Chum the lives of the LGBTQ community in many parts of Africa often hidden because of hostile legislation and social norms as well which stigmatize same sex relationships. So they don't appear to be that. Because you don't hear about them. And part of Sally's idea is to travel all around the continent collecting interviews from LGBTQ communities in order to try to build an audio archive. Sort of a record of the experiences of the people that you met you John's is on the line now from Nairobi a warm. Welcome sally. I give us an idea. What is the what do you hope the effect of the archive will be? Yes. Good morning. The reason that I started this archive is because of the lack of visibility of quick says on the continent and in the gaspara. So the reason that I really wanted to create this archive. So that that would be record that we exist it as a Senegalese lesbian myself. I'm one of the things that's often told to me is that, you know, our sexualities are an African or that we didn't exist here before colonization. And so one of the reasons why this archive is so important to me is that we have a record for ourselves and for generations coming after right? Okay. So there's a historical importance in it. Let me ask about the practicalities of doing it. You're dealing with groups who I think it's fair to say will be rightly suspicious of outsiders. Now, you say yourself you have an in as well as sort of a natural sympathetic in. But nevertheless, how difficult is it? Getting people to talk about something they know not to talk about in public. Well, I don't know if it's a if we can say sweepingly that people don't talk about their sexualities and public manner that that's actually accurate. I think that a lot of times people who identifies LGBT need an opportunity to actually express their stories and to talk about their experiences and often times when I interview people are I need people who do want to be of the archive. It's for that reason. So that they do have something that shows that they exist. The you seem to be suggesting there that there isn't a pressure on people against speaking out and being open. If that's the case, what's the problem? That was my frame the question in the way that I did forgive me. I know it's it's not that. I don't think that there's a pressure, of course, as a social pressure. There's a stigmatization against LGBT people in many countries around African continent. But I don't think that that means that people don't want to speak out. It doesn't mean that everyone will speak out, but people do actually want to share their stories and their experiences because they want to change the laws. They want to be seen. Now, I can see how the archives speaks to the community itself is a kind of a repository of historical record of kind of empowerment and kind of proof of belonging. And so on how does it work as a campaigning tool? What what would you like the website your archive to achieve right? So the project is called non and record. And actually, it's a good question that you're posing because over the last couple of years we've really tried to figure out how to speak and tell. Our stories to people outside of LGBT community. So right now, we're working on a series has actually profiling allies. These are people from the crime saying McVeigh prominent, but are not necessarily LGBT themselves, but support equality, and we hope by sharing these kinds of stories it, can it can sort of bridge that gap and get people to really support equality and inclusion. Okay. What do you made a good point about kind of? You know, we often talk about these things in terms of monolithic communities. There's pro there's anti there's a lot of fluidity going on there as well. In terms of opinions, where do you see social attitudes flowing because the blame is always put on conservative social attitudes and rightly or wrongly, you know, they do exist in certain places. Many of our listeners will be sharing those kind of thinking what's this about this is an African? So how do you change minds? How do you get your message out there? Yeah. I think you know, media is a really great for the fact that we have more people that have access to the internet. So then says a really incredible distribution distribution of these stories and for these kinds of conversations, but over the last ten years of of doing this work, I can say that things have shifted. There's much more public conversation and very thoughtful ways that's happening in Kenya. Where I live now. And also in other parts of the continent. So even though it seems like there's there's a lot more work to be done in. There is there is definitely a chef changing. I mean, we have decriminalization cases happening in swine. Are we have a decriminalization case here in Kenya? You know, films are being made content is being produced. So there is a shift happening the website openly available for those who wish to go research. Yes, it's not on record dot com. Yeah. Just wanted to make sure that was there for people who are interested in tracking down the work of our guest there. Many many thanks indeed. Now, it will I.

"Amazing amazing. I feel like. Tonight and throughout this full night is perfect as you could get really particularly for young Platt who hasn't been through every experience yet. She's learning. She goes, and she just stays in the moment. She doesn't seem to tile in the way that you talk about getting to the amount. And then oh my goodness. She's the edge. And then there's no there's no coming back. She kept on getting back to the here. And now, and when she went off the court after that second set, she came back and immediately she was back in the room. You know, she was really ready to go hard-drive wiped, and let's do it. It was it was fantastic to watch actually that I suppose that's another part of the material process. Goodness me. She's she's just she has an appetite for the sport, generally. And and that's why I think she could end up going onto such great things in the future as well. But it was on on its own marriage. That match was just was just a joy to watch analogy views safe antastic. Because how many I mean not just in? This just happened to have been quite few notable examples in this tournament of really tight I set so second sets and then run away deciding sets final sets, you know, very against Collins in the semi final tie-break I set and then it was six over in second six love final set. Nadeau sit surpass the this fits Lena Result Match with with similar. I think it was six one in in the in the deciding set that. Yeah. It's just real nail on the head. Analogy you really want in this sort of match when it's build the way it is. And it lines up, and you just think surely that's going to be a good match. Surely that's going to be three cents surely that both gonna play well because they can't be playing this well running in and then not deliver. And then they did. And then they did even more. So you know, it really kinda had everything a match because the the tennis on show was off the scale in terms of quality. I think. I don't think I expected when I made my prediction that would went into just didn't see how competitive could play that. Well, not win and she did play. Well, yeah. I didn't about you. But my evil well-meaning emotion. The end of that second set was gratitude to Patrick Vetiver for extending into into very well losses. Neutrals just wanting as much of the match as possible. But I really really did. I felt I felt like she done us all a personal favor. Soccer is she wasn't. But. Sweet it, isn't it. I would I don't know. I mean, it's quite funny. When if you ask for your federal would you like to win in a classic that everybody rooms or would you like to win in three straight sets, you know, easily and he's always not too easily. Onto this later when we preview the men's foreign above could a feeling that joke of each wants another five fifty three feeling that. He would rather win like that that that that final against the dengue twenty twelve so defining, and we so you the making of him in many ways that he wants to taste of it again. The thing or soccer and her win. And I think that this is what typically happens with these kind of things, you know, you if somebody offered you these routes you take easy route. But yeah, it means more doesn't it? When you when you had to go that route that circuits roots and uphill ups and downs, and you still come out on top what an achievement at is from soccer, and she can do it all because we saw the USO annoy she blitz through the draw winning straight-sets every single match up from the Lincoln, and obviously the final there was sort of sexual thing to come through not in terms of the tennis just dealing with the moment here what she's done is. She I mean, she was a set and four one down to say she say she way in the fourth round, third-round and. Was the third of? Switzerland's? She comes. Ten past midnight. Folks is coming into press cones. I reckon she gets out of their three AM. Movie. Delighted to stay that long. I'm not joking because I mean, how many interviews does she gonna end up there..

"Been protesting since twenty six. Actually, twenty fifteen so more than fears that people have been protesting for elections, and for many people they feel like they did not get everything. But the. But also in another thing is many people have question intentions of our politicians. You have for example, the influential Catholic church that has questioned the results, but has not yet called people to go into the streets. So that's something different. And and for now people have not responded to marching goals because he's the only one physically calling for people to protest all other opposition heavyweights who are parts of his coalition have not called people to protest Neda has the nor has the Catholic church. Also. So he's the only one calling and that's why he's having a hard time to mobilize people. Okay. Guys. Thank you very much guys. They're talking to us from the capital Kinshasa. This is Newsday on the BBC World Service. Let me read you headline on a story in the United States that has people talking this from NBC once prominent conversion therapist will now pursue life. As a gay man is about a man called David Mathieson well nine for programs, which attempted to stop same sex attraction in clients trying to make them attracted to the opposite sex. Instead so called gay conversion therapy. He published a book called becoming a whole, man. However, he now says he's in fact to gay he's looking for a boyfriend one form of patient as he would have been described is Levin. He was sent to Mr. Matheson, by his orthodox Jewish parents who hope the program could stop their son being gay Newsday's pull Hawking's asked him. How he felt when he merged from these so-called conversion treatments. Take a listen. On the one hand I had been very strongly rejected by everyone in my community. And here I was among a community of people who are treating me kindly, which was the first in my life. But it was very confusing because it was very conditional. Once I left after about a year and a half of being involved with our programs, and then learning finally came out, you know, that that acceptance is no longer there. But it was I was very traumatized for a long time. And it's still terrifies me to think that people are going into these programs not knowing what they're getting into. And you know, and it's it's really intense. I spent the last several years trying to kind of make sense of this experience and also come to terms with it because you know, some of the things that happened to me are nothing short of, you know, being rejected Mayes like I wasn't my childhood at just coming to terms without an accepting that has been a really difficult process. Nevertheless, there are there are those people not just not just the. People who run these programs, but some people tend to believe that they do work and one of those was David Matheson. What was he like when you were on the program? You know, I didn't have many interactions with him personally. But he was always talked about is like a god-like figure of the movement. He was almost everyone talked about him as being someone who really succeeded in becoming fully heterosexual. And he was just really, well, regarded and also know that he wasn't tremendous designing this program when he came out recently and said that he was getting a divorce from his wife, and he wants to use seeking intimate relations with with another man would what did you make of that? There has to be a sense of responsibility here at this point. It really feels like Mr. Matheson is failing that terribly by not accepting any blame. Yeah. He's made a couple of pretty vague apologies. But he doesn't announce the program that he designed he put a message on Facebook. And I'll read it now for many of our listeners, you wouldn't have seen this message that he put on Facebook. He kind of explains that he was coming. Out and he was getting a divorce in parts of the statements that I used to be caught in an ideological prison of my own. I know my work helped many many people because they've told him, but I'm sure I've heard some people too. So there is acknowledged when they're not that I would excuse myself, but any shortcomings had as a therapist came from too narrow a view of what emotionally healthy can look like they came from my own, homophobia and narrow-mindedness on truly sorry for those floors and the harm. They have surely caused some people, and I'm sorry for the confusion and pain, my choice may be causing other. So there is an acknowledgement that what he did did cause harm to people like you. And he's sorry for it. There was regret their you know, that's one statement. He gave a different statement to truth wins out where he explicitly said that he's not renouncing his work, or, you know, still stands by his work. But I think it's his responsibility to come out and say, I don't endorse this program anymore, and it didn't work for me. It's early. Work for other people too. He has some immense make that's why I'm living. He was a former gay conversion patient talking to the Newsday's poll Hawking's now, then let's get some sports news with Matthew Kenyon, often at this time of the program drummer at the Australian Open over the last day, plenty of drama as we speak there into a decider in the second women's semifinal in Melbourne US open champion now Asaka against Carolina plus cover and David law joins us. What's the latest, David? It is one. Settle Matthew is Naomi soccer with a three two advantage. In the third set. She has a break of serve as well. This has been an absolutely cracking match. I has gone to Asarco six games to to push hit back on the second. Six four sock has got a self ahead again here in the deciding set, and she has a wonderful record. When she's won the first match. She's this is would be her fifty ninth consecutive win. After winning the first set if she were to take it and the so much on this match. Of course, the winner gets through to the Australian Open. And final and we'll have a chance to be the world number one the planet. They would face in the finals. Well, Patrick Evita also has a chance to be world number-one. So so much at stake, and it's still more or less than the balance. A soccer just has a nose in front three two at the break in the third. So a Patrick Vetiver awaits tell us about her win over over. Daniel Collins hard in the first set simple in the second. It seemed. Yeah, that's right. And actually, very different conditions once they closed the roof here at four games all in that match, which was really favoring Daniel Collins at that point, she likes the heat Petric give it about hates it once they close the roof because they basically ticked over the the threshold give it was a different player. She loves indoor conditions. She raced away with victory. Seven six six love thereafter. And it's a great story two years ago. Patrick Evita was attacked in her own apartment. She suffered horrible injuries to her playing canned Neely lost fingers in that attack. And it did look as though she. He would never play the sport again here. She is two years later, and she's in a grand slam final show, you mentioned the roof closed. David just how hot is it in Melbourne at the minute. It's thirty degrees celsius is really brutal to be out there for very long. There's an area where people typically watch on a big screen in chairs are laid out for the more. It's deserted. Nobody wants to sit in the direct sunshine at the moment. Hence, why they're suspended all the matches on the outside courts and they've closed the roof on the show courts to to at least keep it as manageable temperature.

Some of the things that talking about investing process for new songs and scripts perform is needing government commission to work outside the country. Ministers say they want to stop abusive language in the creative industry where we wanted to speak to somebody in that industry to find out what they think of it. So let's be live to Ugandan actor and film director John Sagawa, good morning to you, John. And what do you think of these proposed measures you'll have to register with the government is artist? I understand good morning. These Richardson's being brought in about face because we. Humphry traditions that goes on all sectors in the country. We're gonna be. Chose to. If you or anyone can they make industry? I don't think we needed any the rations because we still have enough that if you can't do anything wrong then. I take care of that. Let me read a quote from peace said, the junior minister. The regulations peace Matusa says we cannot continue condoning as a country abusive language. This is one thing. We know he's been happening within the creative industry. Compose songs to abuse of this. What is the abuse? Took place. Tonight. Freedom going stuff goes. Movement. Then how can somebody express themselves unto? How'd you becoming that be on is not? Abuse tricky kid because we think that because maybe entertainers joining politics to talk to that about abuse. Nobody has abused. And the abusers somebody. All users. Like. Language adult for that. You don't go out on formulating relations because somebody has abused to meet because it is already there. And you talking about entertainers in politics the most prominent exemplify that as Bobi wine pop star and then pay he has been critical of president moon. Seven. A you think there is a tangible link between the two than these regulations, and that guy coming to prominence see. Maybe. Because look this this month has released about wish celebrate when we we show where the grown win win. Pick one. Somebody english. So. They need to keep the Android. Use does not lead anywhere at done, which was cited. And then I think he wants to introduce the low to. So that we. If you look at an individual in for us the entire industry. Some of us are looking to put aunt. If you take it. It hold them. Some of stuff. If the little comes in John, how does it work practically with the way that you work? If you have to submit a script, for example, before it goes on stage, you're on screen. How would that into the process potentially? Because look Braswell interested gets right. And you take your testing for Boston. But look at the comedians because is. They come on stage and perform I may be they dropped jokes within. Looking up seeing you'd years now, how are you going to do that? Because you must pick your script to what everybody wants us to take. And they approve it. I'm against you. Pre a response to a heckler if you're a standup comedian, it's a really good point improvisisation as well. Thanks very much. Indeed, John Sagawa actor and film director.

"She was saying that county push hit all the lines. She said she played lightsout tennis and just ripped it from basically and that the lesson for her next time is to do the same thing. And in her words, go psycho. The next time I have a match point. And, you know, go for it, basically rather than playing within a cell, but I felt that that. Turn nine call. However, I don't know about it. But I think that had an impact because she slowed up. She didn't she didn't win another point on serve. She lost. She lost the remaining ten point challenge. Serving tooting getting broken twice. And. Yes, caroliina Piscopo played really really well. But. Bahrain emission? She was in the locker room yet. She said on the call in my head. I was in the locker, and if Serena serve is working, no matter how the other players fame. She takes out of the hand because she will tonight, so hidden unreturnable serve. But there was none of that off to the ankle turn side the eventual result which. I think he's down to so many different factors that I when push show clean, so Clichy. We I think it took about twenty minutes to make an error off to thirty two point. Yeah. I mean, it was it was so clean such good, boo. Striking. Serena Williams loot completely flummoxed than. Not to take anything away from this. You're who? Yeah. The stats out was pretty much perfection. But I just wonder if Serena. Had somewhere in her mind. The soccer had won the previous match and that if she were to win it would be a repeat of the USA funnel. I cannot believe that was in. Anyway in hotline junior. Yeah. Yeah. It's certainly wouldn't came out making quite a lot of errors certainly compared to away she came out against and soccer, just one. She she hasn't been she hasn't been taking questions on the USO. But that would have been. She was completely peace with it in her own minds. Why not take the questions? I know there's the whole constructed reality thing, which is a big thing. But if she was cool with it. She. Be fine to take the questions. Somebody said to me today actually went a step further and said that she didn't want to win today because she didn't wanna face a soccer, which I think is nonsense. Yeah. But I cannot believe the she went on to cool without that somewhere in her mind. We'll never know would just. Sean because I think I think you know, she she loves people for a second time of being home being them. Again. You know, she's she's been absolute, you know, just been amazing to career, but I just think that matches probably on her mind. Maybe the way she played. I don't think it sort of. Money on Nishikori. Let's say was. The fact is that she is now break, by the way on a flight. Hey, gang came back. Given the way push was saying I thought she was gonna lose in straight-sets ready. The way it was going and. When she gets a five one. I was I was partially. Constructing in my mind, the champion Williams's. But also what a disappointment push giver is when you push her into a corner and to be fair to she hung in there. She she she would stood disappointment. She was ready to take. What was coming into? I know that. But wouldn't stop little dilemma that little opening was there. She was back in the game. Mentally, and she took the chance much spin. It competed player a winded opponent, let lane that winded opponent being Serena Williams, she had to not make any areas on those much points. She did move the night. She she wasn't just thinking hit the bullying court in this remake Sierra, she played those much points. Really? Well, really really well. So yes, she came. Of course, she did a big high five with a check cameraman is a big check Lovin. And yeah, it's a Simon to Australian Open semi final. She still in very complicated ways is with the tones of reaching. Well, number one as Patrick Vetiver. However in the live rankings Namias, okay? Is number one and certainly remains in the hot seat. I believe by by miss Smith Rin Patrick of its needs to go one round further than the soccer fiscal needs to win the title. Yeah. Yeah. Thanks. Thanks. It's pretty cooler. Isn't it? The three of the four semi-finalists could be world. Number one. Great, whatever equate. Sorry..

"Is back in Zimbabwe, which is lucky so the president can tweet and he has done on his return symboblic to address the violent protests and security crept out of the country. Emmerson Mnangagwa, tweeted, chaos would not be tolerated. But also the police and army misconduct would be investigated. Meanwhile, Zimbabweans opposition say its members of being detained including four parliamentarians and rights groups report that at least twelve people have been killed. But this hasn't been officially confirmed speaking to the BBC, the chairman of the ruling Zanu PF party, Simon Kaya Moyle rejected allegations by president mnangagwa's government that it was turning out to be no different to that of his predecessor Robert Mugabe. I don't see why we should do. Robert Mugabe government, and it just got his own policies, and it is a lot of things which would depart. It's the whole contingent only what believes is good for the Zimbabwe. With us in the studio now joke Lawrenson is violent Gonda. She's in Bulgarian journalists based in London, welcome to the program and to Newsday violet. And would you make of president Lyndon Gog was early return Tuesday? Bobby's also been tweeting that he's inviting now all leaders from all political parties to come together to unite and he says what unites us is stronger than what could ever divide us Zimbabweans are actually quite skeptical about this because for the longest time zone. A PF has refused to negotiate oughta dialogue, especially with the opposition. So what is changed many believe that prison Emmerson Mnangagwa is not sincere that he's only doing this and saying this now because one they've run out of ideas into he's in trouble. So this is just a way of trying to get the international community thing that he's really interested in savings Zimba. Bob way. Right. You've been out of the country for a while. Now, you've been exiled. You yourself have been rejected by Zimbabwe's just tell us your story before we go back into the politics almost two decades ago. A group of fast Zimbabwean set up the country's first independent radio station broadcasting from London to Zimbabwe via shortwave, so what immediately banned from returning at his Imbaba by the Mugabe regime, which prison Emmerson Mnangagwa was part of but after the coup in twenty seventeen I decided to return to symboblic to just go and test the waters to see how far things had really changed. So for the past year. I was based in Zimbabwe never only just returned right? To be fair on the government. It's inherited this from the Robert Mugabe regime, and it's trying its best to try and revive the economy. What it needed was a cash injection, which no country seems to be willing to give it. So in a way that it struggling isn't it it seems to be on a treadmill? Wade can't move forward. So give it time perhaps to try and put into place it the president has been to Russia has been to other countries across Europe asking for this money. So give him a little bit more time perhaps to try and put that into place. But this is another first time that is being to these countries last year, he went to many countries. And what what what what does Imbaba get out of that? And when you say that this new government is inherited this from Mugabe, they were part of the system, you know, one Zimbabwean analysts actually said the day that a snake can shed its skin. But it remains a snake? So the same people who are in. Power right now are the same people who helped destroy Zimbabwe in the last thirty eight years, and they have they have not provided any solutions to the crisis while the prob- the thing is what are the solutions? How do you fix it? We spoke about a cash injection there. Zimbabwe was known across the continent to be a the breadbasket of the entire continent. It also had farming right at the heart of its economy. He he spoke last year mnangagwa's spoke about inviting back, white farmers, and and and possibly getting up to reform the land is that one of the solutions because what's Imbaba will be looking at it and going, well, we can solve this because we have the expertise. Of course, we can solve this. But we have not actually seen the implementation of any of the policies that he has a promised. And also when you look at the situation right now, why would he go and beat up people who are just saying we want to know how you into turnaround. The the the the economy, and he has not done that. I think yes, if countries can bring in money into Bobby that will help, but many people feel that it will only go back into the hands of the same people who are in power today. The president of Zimbabwe has called for national dialogue, which if he is sincere that is one step forward. But at the end of the day, I see a problem going for because everyone wants to be a leader this society organizations right now actually saying that they want to have a nonpartisan national dialogue. But how would you do that? If the if the politicians are not involved, and there's no way that Zanu PF will allow a national dialogue to go ahead without them involved because they've been of the day, this is their baby and they want to control it. So it's very difficult to say, what's the solutions are, but one thing that the international community can do is stop like. What they did with the what Britain did with the crew with is supported the coup this time, they must show that they will not just allows on a PF to get away with murder. They should put pressure on Zanu PF to reform. They should put pressure on Zanu PF to negotiate with stakeholders in Zimbabwe with the churches, the civil society, and so that we can have lasting solutions. Okay. Gunduz Imbaba journalists. Thank you very much for joining us. This is news day from the BBC. What's this list of Castro, Delaney, Gabon gillibrand of Jada Warren and Yang list of US Democrats who said they're running for the presidential nomination for twenty twenty two which list, we can now add Kamala Harris seen as a rising star former attorney general California before she became a Senator as a woman of color with the Laura Justice background is great interested us or what are our chances? Patt Morrison has covered her career. She's an opinion columnist at the LA times. So what makes of Harris standout on as a candidate woman of color? I think is what attracts a lot of attention Californian will divide people in several directions. Of course. And the fact that she's a United States Senator she has been very aggressive in questioning supreme court nominees and other nominees to the Trump cabinet that has raised her profile substantially in spite of the fact that she's only been in the Senate for two years, right? And what sort of? Bells. Therefore will she ring when when sort of vaguely interested Americans right across the country here that name again what sort of a tone? Does it strike? I think the Coen she wants to strike is one of inclusion she chose this day. Martin Luther King holiday to make her announcement for the presidency. So what's going to distinguish her her background? Of course, her mother is Indian her father Jamaican, civil rights activists when they met she herself has been a product of what is a very cutthroat sense of politics in the bay area. The bay area of California has produced very high profile successful. Democrats democratic women Senator Dianne Feinstein Representative Nancy Pelosi and out of that crucible where you had to fight fellow Democrats to make your way to make yourself known. She's been very successful. Right. Former attorney general obviously, very high profile for the state of California as well. What does the law enforcement records say about her? What what kind of a figure washy? And how will she deal with that take advantage of it or maybe be attacked on that basis as well? I think both of those things are very likely to happen. She of course, like many candidates has written an autobiography about the work that she has done. She liked to think of herself as a prosecutor who brought some humanity, and some understanding some very severe sentencing laws that are still on the books in California. But at the same time, the progressives in the party, some of them are looking at scans Aker just because she was a prosecutor in California being an attorney general is often the pathway to becoming governor. And there was a lot of buzz several years ago that that's what Kamla Harris was looking for. But now aspirations are reaching higher. And of course, the scrutiny is going to be more intense about her record as a prosecutor, you mentioned some of the the the signifies that that she can use paying a woman of color, the law enforcement background. Obviously the fact that she's a woman candidate as well. But also in there. Is the simple fact that she's a Californian. That's right for California. How does that play? Elsewhere. Well, California California's a very successful state, a very democratic state and the state that aggravated Donald Trump because it gave Hillary Clinton a margin of victory of nearly three million votes. And so obviously, it's a reliable democratic state. But for all those reasons and many others, California is still seen as the price in the nineteen twenties Orlando, fruits and nuts. And as a consequence you're going to have a lot of Americans who look at scancen, anybody from California. Who is the democrat is not Ronald Reagan who is not Richard Nixon in the much more distant past and say, well, come on, you know, who they have out there. They have those crazy people it is much harder for Democrats and for Republicans from California to establish reputations. We'll remember Arnold Schwarzenegger the governor of California Republican. So we've seen is so successful that there was a buzz about changing the constitution to allow him. He was not born in this country to run for president. It's not that kind of support for a democratic. Candidate and certainly California's reputation as I said a dated reputation when here we are an extremely successful state and economy bigger than the entire country of Russia. None of that's to be sneezed at. But that's not the note. That's not the game. It's going to be played against Kamala Harris, and any other California to might choose to run running the rule across the prospects for couple of Harris that was Pat Morrison of the LA times Newsday from the BBC with Lawrence Paladin Carney shopped main headlines this half hour. Zimbabwe's President has returned home from Europe accusing protesters of uncontrolled violence, but also criticizing some members of the security forces for brutal suppression, a detained a former US marine is due to appear in a Russian court shortly accused of receiving state secrets and the leaders of France and Germany are to sign a treaty today pledging closer cooperation in areas, including defense and economic development Kenyans here with the sport and Stefanos pass is through to the semi finals.

Points that's eight in all to try and wrap up this place in the last sixteen no problems for Novak Djokovic or Roger federal they both went through in straight-sets okay thank you well let's stay on the. Subject of tennis and the, US open tournament up Flushing Meadow New York because there was controversy there on Tuesday when the. French player at least Cornell was given a code violation penalty by the umpire during her first round match this was because she. Briefly, removed her shirt when she realized she'd put it on backwards. At least Carney went to the back of the court to. Adjust, her top and briefly revealed her sports bra the Women's Tennis Association described the code violation given. To her as unfair and other female. Players accused officials of having double standards because male players. Often change their shirts between games and sit topless for long, periods. After the battle broke out the tennis authorities that the US Open tournament apologized and issued a statement saying the code violation was wrongly given. It didn't result in any points deduction least corny but she did go on to lose the match on Wednesday Elise chronic accepted the apology from the authorities and she did her best to play down the incident. Very fair from them to pull Jason hours I really appreciate I, think the proportion that he too is are huge and very, surprised, about it actually to be honest because. On the court it really seemed like a mistake from, the empire and nothing else and that's how. I take it I'll Anita Alvarez is a former professional golfer who's now a sports journalist. And, writer on gender, politics and sport and, she's based in Washington d. c. she told me how she felt, when she heard about this controversy You know I've. Been watching the, matches? Earlier in the day and I had seen, a couple, of guys, take their shirts off while they were. Taking breaks and so when I got on Twitter and later saw this? Controversy was. Happening I was like what and when I realized it was a woman I'll say wasn't surprised but. I also thought it was outrageous so why do you think the umpire was so quick to penalize her It just has to do with the fact that women's bodies are scrutinized more in terms of just how we present ourselves in any action. Whatsoever and men can walk. Around if you look at you go to most public parks or swimming pools men are walking around without their shirts on a big deal but if a woman where today that especially here in the. US the seen as highly controversial in proper and for some reason women's bodies are, sexualize much, more even when it's not in a sexual situation in women's sports that seems to be amplified even more interesting it depends on the sport there. Was a time during the London summer Olympics in two thousand twelve that boxing. Ration- wanted to, have? Their female boxers wear skirts to draw more, attention and, to help, distinguish the women from men but in. Batmans case for the London Vicks while they wanted the women to wear Skirts because they thought it would help bring more attention. To the sport stateful were enforced and because there is so much outcry against it It still sends very few messages for female? Athletes because it's like okay well? Can I wear short skirt or am I going to be penalized or can I wear sports bra event am I going to, be penalized women aren't really allowed to make choices based, on what they feel most comfortable and to compete in a you speak from experience don't you you? Were you were a former professional golfer how are you made to feel about what you wore on the golf course when, you were playing there was one incident in particular where I was removed from a golf course because they said my short for too short even though my shorts were longer than the club's requirements And for, me personally I've always been very curvy and, have had a very muscular. Build as well and so I felt like it was more. That they were scrutinizing my body and how my body looked in those shorts and not so much, that they weren't actually in line with the course guidelines and so that did make me feel very self conscious thankfully I had a mom who screw them, you're, gonna, wear what you're gonna wear there was almost a unanimous criticize him of the code violation given to Elise? Corny are you satisfied that the? Criticism of that penalty mightly to change in the future it just shows the ludicrous it is right women even if they don't, watch tennis even if they don't watch golfer any sports, they can relate to that I had women that reached out to me from different occupations he said? This happened to me when I was trying to go to court to represent my client but I wasn't allowed to wear, the certain blazer that I had chosen or that my Skirt was too tight my boss told me that he wanted me to? Wear heels to work so. This is something that I think so many women can, relate to even if they don't play your, watch sports the criticism that. Was received any is a reflection of how besides evolving and. Also how women are feeling more comfortable speaking out about these issues and were they don't feel like, they have to just follow protocol simply because someone said that's the protocol they should follow That was on yeah Alvarez so what do you think I saw you nodding when when Anya? Was making the point this isn't just. An issue in sports this is an issue for women in in many different. In. Many different arenas absolutely and I actually liked her positive spin in in a sense of trying to present the story of women actually complaining about the way that their, bodies are policed constantly but it is that is the reality women's. Bodies are constantly police what you wear is always something that is going to be. A police by men we've seen that. In parliament in politics if a woman is for instance with a, with an open shot showing a little bit of cleavage that is immediately interpreted as a sexual sign or a woman trying to be provocative. In sports as. Well This is a very long story and it is very? Inconsistent because in one hand there is. This very prude police as well you cannot change your top even if it's. For. Thirty seconds and show your sports bra but at the same time for instance Tanis women's players are Heidi sexualize and that's essentially how the whole ten is industry operates, and promotes female tech tenets about the sexual is Asian presenting those. Tennis players as actually a sexual object as opposed to to to to sportswomen and. He sees usually disconcerting because you no. Longer doing your work you are at feeding insecure because how am, I presenting myself okay well thank you it's coming up to seven thirty GMT you're listening to weekend from the BBC World Service in London Distribution.
