Campbell/Gentle are Trophy Stall Ladies’ Doubles champions

first_imgCHRISTY Campbell and Afruica Gentle staved off a strong challenge from the mother-and-daughter pair of Shelly Daly-Ramdyhan and her daughter Nicola, to win the Trophy Stall-sponsored, Guyana Tennis Association’s Ladies’ Doubles title.Those who gathered at the venue for the final, anticipated a nail-biting final and got just what they expected.The two pairs played neck-and-neck in the most intense ladies’ doubles of the year. Campbell, with her calm demeanour and consistent loopy strokes, was backed by Gentle’s furious groundstrokes.The first set had a dash of drama, ups and downs for both teams. Campbell/Gentle saw an opportunity while serving 6-5 in the first set but the Ramdyhans were not going to let the match slip out of their reach.They battled to break Campbell’s serve and throw the set into a tiebreaker. But it was the Campbell/Gentle who stormed through the tiebreaker with a 7-1 win and first set in hand, leaving spectators shocked and at the edge of their seats.The second set provided more rewarding tennis. An under-the-weather Campbell and the visibly pained mother and coach threw caution to the wind in an effort to secure the title. With a quick race to a 4-2 lead, it was clear that the momentum of the match was on Gentle/Campbell’s side. It was clear that slow pace of Campbell’s carefully placed high balls were intended to throw off the Ramdyhans.However, the experienced Ramdyhans etched their way back with their signature big serves and skilful touch volleys to tie the set at 4 games. In a gruelling game that racked up 3 deuces and two game points to the Ramdyhans, the set was either team to grab.But focus and tenacity heralded Gentle/Campbell with the success of a 5-4 lead. The Ramdyhans’ service game now held the last line of defence in their chance to stay in the match. But, the prospect of a win came as Gentle/Campbell earned 2 match points.One match point was saved, but the next point, an acute cross court angle generated by Campbell pushed Nicola off court to set Gentle up for an easy winner.Elation flooded Gentle/Campbell’s faces as they now stand undefeated for the season and claimed the spot on the pinnacle of local women’s doubles. In the stand, the proud mother and father watched their young daughter celebrate another moment of joy. In an invited comment, Campbell stated, “Winning always feels good whether it’s a big win or not.“We’ve had a jittery start due to lack of communication, nevertheless my partner and I got momentum going and maintained composure at crucial points. Thankfully we came out on the winning side. Altogether it was a gruelling match.”last_img read more

Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper says he’s ‘just scratching the surface’

first_imgIt took less than a full season in Dallas for Amari Cooper to make a lasting impression.But his statistics are the only numbers he’s looking to discuss, as the Cowboys wide receiver reiterated he doesn’t care to talk about his finances and isn’t striving to become one of the league’s highest-paid players. Cowboys’ Amari Cooper lobbies for teammate Dak Prescott to get paid “If you play good football, you’re going to be around for a long time. I do want to be a Dallas Cowboy for a long time. I love the organization. I love everything we have going on.”Cooper expressed patience for the process and acknowledged his contract extension will come in time, though he clarified the meaning behind his earlier comments and said he wants to prove that he’s earned a new deal first. Dak Prescott says there’s no ceiling on what Cowboys can do Jalen Ramsey restrains himself from ripping opposing QBs Cooper, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract, told reporters Monday he’s not worried about his status.”It really doesn’t matter to me — not even thinking about that,” Cooper said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m just more focused on how I play and how I approach the game, the type of work that I put in. I really want to play well. I think everything starts with that. Related News “I think I’m just scratching the surface,” Cooper said. “I think people haven’t seen half of what I can do out there on the field. I have so much more great plays in me, so much more good football ahead of me. My best football is ahead of me.”I just turned 25 years old. A lot of the great receivers in this game are older than I am. I think I just have so much in store. That’s what I meant by ‘not now.'”Cooper led Dallas with 725 yards on 53 catches and had six touchdowns in nine games last season after being acquired from the Raiders in October.last_img read more

Ezekiel Elliott contract rumors: Negotiations progressing, Cowboys could make him highest-paid RB

first_imgThere is some positive news regarding Ezekiel Elliott’s contract holdout.According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, negotiations between the running back and the Cowboys are going well. While it’s been a slow progression, the report noted Elliott will become the highest-paid tailback in the league should things “continue on same track.” Previous reports have indicated quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Amari Cooper might be in line to receive their extensions before Elliott gets his. Both are in the final years of their current contracts, but Prescott and Cooper reported to training camp in Oxnard, California, late last week.”It will happen when it happens,” Prescott said over the weekend of receiving his new deal, via “I know I’ll be better by the time the regular season starts. That’s my focus.”Added Cooper: “I haven’t really been thinking about my contract situation because I don’t know. I don’t know why. I want to be here. I want to be out here running routes. I want to be out here catching balls from Dak because I think it’s necessary and I think it’s going to help me achieve what I want to achieve this season.” Just received another positive update on Zeke extension status. Still needs time, but IF things continue on same track, I expect Elliott to be t/ highest paid RB in the NFL across certain metrics. Jives w/ same tone I heard last Fri. Obviously though nothing is done until signed.— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) July 30, 2019The news comes after the Cowboys running back headed to Cabo San Lucas to train on his own as the team continued training camp in California, which was reported Monday by Dallas’ KRLD radio.While Elliott served his six-game suspension in 2017, he trained independently in Mexico to stay in shape and likely will be doing the same as negotiations with the Cowboys continue, according to the report.Elliott, 24, has two years and $12.9 million left on his rookie contract. Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said he is in discussions with Elliott’s camp, but didn’t go further.”We feel optimistic that things usually work themselves out,” Jones said. “We’ve been doing this for 30 years, so we’re not surprised. It’s a business.”According to NFL Network, the Cowboys still hadn’t heard from Elliott and his agents as of Monday morning about an offer they extended to him. However, the team reportedly isn’t alarmed because the process is expected to take time.last_img read more

FDA: Mammography Services at the Breast Institute at JFK Medical Center “Below Standard”

first_imgPatients of the Breast Institute at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis are left with lots of questions after being notified of the “serious concerns” regarding the quality of mammograms they’ve received.

The hospital is notifying patients. The letter says the FDA asked the facility to stop performing mammography.Local doctor, Dr. Maureen Whelihan, says patients should not panic.“The good news whatever the problem is it’s being resolved so what do we do with those individuals in the middle of services, ” he said.“If you are uncomfortable with this letter, and you don’t want to proceed with followup at a JFK facility, then you would want to get your records and either have a conversation with a breast surgeon or have your images re-read or re-done somewhere else.”JFK Medical Center released this statement:The Breast Institute at JFK Medical Center North Campus has stopped providing mammography services while we implement a comprehensive plan to improve these services. We are notifying patients who have received scans at our hospital. For patients who had a mammogram during the review period, we are working diligently to have these re-read or re-done, if necessary, at no cost to patients.It’s important to note that this change only affects mammography services; the hospital remains accredited by the Joint Commission, and we’re working closely with the American College of Radiology to improve our mammography services.last_img read more
