Roman Abramovich sees your poxy global pandemic and laughs uproariously from his yacht inside a bigger yacht on his island comprised solely of yachts.

Massimiliano Allegri paid for a quarter-final exit in much the same way as fellow Serie A winner Maurizio Sarri suffered the consequences of losing in the last 16 to Lyon earlier this month. Andrea Pirlo will hope to succeed where both failed but the fate of those players signed in highlights how The Old Lady might need to improve their approach. Their answer was simple: to set a bar that might never be raised again. Real Madrid never have dealt all that well with average performance.
With a few smaller deals dotted around elsewhere, City made their intent clear. And disappointing third to Chelsea and Tottenham became dominant first over everyone as they embarked on the finest season in Premier League history to reclaim their title. European success is still not forthcoming, mind. That quarter-final hurdle is proving a little too troublesome.

Marin Cilic, the player Bjorkman coaches, was sending little signals to his team box that the blister on his left foot had returned. What Bjorkman first understood, the rest of the tennis-watching world soon learn, and in some ways it made for a fitting end to a tournament marred by injuries and retirements that helped dictate the outcome. The tournament also ended with two disappointing singles finals that fizzled after the first set.
It was a strange year. But it would have been nice if it had lasted at least two hours.

Fittingly, a Blister Hobbles Marin Cilic in the Wimbledon Final
By Adam Shergold for MailOnline. Roger Federer scaled new heights of greatness at Wimbledon when he duly collected a record breaking win to put him further ahead of other legends, living and dead. The 35 year-old Swiss took an eighth All England Club title by hammering a troubled Marin Cilic with ruthless ease, winning in an hour and 41 minutes.

The All England Badminton Championships is the oldest and most venerable tournament in the sport. It was launched in and dominated for decades by British gentlemen in high-waisted, white trousers. Today, though, on this warm March afternoon in , the year saga of the All Englands has come down to this: A Chinese man has just thrown himself to the ground on center court.
Lin Dan, who is 33 and a six-time All England Champion, is having a tantrum. He is infuriated at the umpire and also, perhaps, infuriated at himself because in today’s quarterfinal match against a lanky young Dane named Viktor Axelsen, the world’s fourth-ranked player, he has just been called for thrusting his racket over the net. In outrage, Lin has flopped down onto his back at the Barclaycard Arena in England’s second city, Birmingham.
Having lost the point, he seems gripped by an existential pain. He is writhing on the ground. But if you’re a fan of Lin — if you’re one of the millions who revere this dashing enfant terrible and handsome sex symbol — this is actually a hopeful moment, for Lin is displaying, once again, the fire that propelled him to stardom. This is, remember, the guy who in chucked his racket at South Korean coach Li Mao en route to losing a match, then had to be restrained from punching that coach.
Later in , at a Chinese team practice, Lin didn’t hold back from punching his own coach, according to witnesses. More recently, he has breakdanced on court, shirtless, and also cussed in front of video cameras and explained that he “used the curses to motivate myself. Tattoos are no big deal in American sports, of course; the NBA is practically a river of ink.

McHugh, who began playing aged five, showed impressive power and accuracy on both sides and hit an impressive 10 aces.
He is clearly one to watch, whatever happens during the rest of the tournament. My gran has a lot of experience cooking so I would say it would just be her, but Kim is also a good cook.
