Jack Sock attends a training session ahead of the 2022 Laver Cup on September 20, 2022 in London.

Frances Tiafoe thrust himself into the spotlight of world tennis earlier this month when he made his first run to a Grand Slam singles semi-final at the US Open.

The 24-year-old from Maryland is back in the world’s attention this week, albeit for slightly different reasons.

Tiafoe and fellow American Olympian Jack Sock are set to meet two of the sport’s all-time legends, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal, in a doubles match on Friday at the Laver Cup, a men’s team tournament taking place in London.

And oh by the way, this happens to be Federer’s last competitive tournament.

The 41-year-old Swiss, holder of 20 Grand Slam singles titles, announced last week that he was retiring. It’s only fitting that he would end his career playing alongside longtime rival Nadal of Spain, who holds a men’s record 22 Grand Slam singles titles.

“Yeah, I’m just excited to play against two newcomers tomorrow,” said deadpan Tiafoe.

Tiafoe and Sock are among six players in Team World, led by American tennis great John McEnroe. Bjorn Borg is the head of Team Europe, which has, shall we say, only a bit of star power. As well as Federer and Nadal, the European squad also includes 21-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Britain’s Andy Murray, giving Bjorg the sport’s ‘big four’ who have collectively dominated the past two decades of the sport. male tennis.

With Federer’s retirement looming, much of the focus this weekend will be on his game on Friday.

“It will be iconic to be a part of it,” Tiafoe said. “Both guys are absolute legends. And of course, (this is) Roger’s last dance.

While Team Europe boasts four of the best players of all time, the Laver Cup is also a showcase for some of the sport’s best young stars, including US Open runner-up Casper Ruud of Norway, Taylor Fritz of the United States and, of course, Tiafoe.

The son of immigrants from Sierra Leone, he started hitting balls while his father worked as a maintenance worker at a local tennis center. Officials there noticed his talent and he was soon on his way to stardom. Tiafoe made his Olympic debut last year in Tokyo and earlier this month became the first American to reach the US Open semifinals since Andy Roddick in 2006.

The Laver Cup continues through Sunday with doubles and singles matches. Lineups for the final two days will be announced later.

“Obviously tomorrow night is going to be a more than iconic night, a doubles match,” said Sock, the 2016 Olympic bronze medalist in men’s doubles. “I’m just thrilled to be a part of it with my guy Foe, you know, next to me.”

The Dancesport Inter-School Challenge will take place on Sunday, September 25, with Years 5, 6, 7 and 8 involved at nine schools.

Dance organizer and teacher Mark Glastonbury says he was approached by the Wanganui Dancesport Committee a few years ago. They had funds, he said. This opened the door for her to approach schools with the promise of free dance lessons for students. He says the kids love it. He had no trouble making the students enjoy the lessons – he can tell by the smiling faces.

“In 2020 we tried that and missed a day. We went to Tier 1 on Monday and had scheduled the event for the following Sunday.”

Last year, he says they were limited to too small numbers to hold the event.

We are now in 2022 and the traffic light system is gone and there are no limits. The event progresses.

“The theory is that there are nine schools in the age brackets, with Years 5 and 6 dancing against all the other Years 5 and 6 in the other schools, Years 7 and 8 will do the same. There is two dances: the waltz and the cha-cha. There’s a big group dance, a merengue change of partners that I’m going to ask all the schools to do, so all the couples there will. He says it’s is based on a Cuban rhythm: “After six counts of eight, the children switch partners.”

He says it’s a good day for the kids with all the lights and glitz and glamour. It takes place at the Whanganui War Memorial Center.

“I bring down the judges: one from Auckland, two from Wellington; Hamish [McDouall] opens it to us. The kids get dressed and it’s the whole nine yards.
“I will make an order of the day: we have a lady of elegance, a gentleman of distinction – there will be a judge in the crowd who will judge this in particular, looking at the behavior of the children on the floor, the activities on the floor , how they treat their partner, all that kind of stuff.”

Mark has ribbons, trophies and awards ready for the occasion. There will be an overall school winner, but couples will be recognized for their dance prowess.

Participating schools are Ohakune, Churton, Kai-Iwi, Westmere, Fordell, Mosston, St George’s, Upokongaro and St Mary’s.

“Some schools only have Years 5 and 6, while others also have Years 7 and 8.

“The main comment I get from schools other than ‘I didn’t know Johnny could dance’ is ‘oh they get along so well’. I actually went back to a room to pick something up that I had left behind, and the teacher was debriefing with the kids, and they were talking about the pros and cons [of dance lessons]. One of the pluses was “the cha-cha was fun” and the downside was “it was really hard when he turned the music on”. Because it was fast.” The general feeling was one of pleasure.

They call Mark “Mister G”.

“I’ll be promoting the next step in my studio,” he says. “That was always the plan…if they want to take the next option.

“It’s always been the goal to take a couple from school to the podium at national championships and I finally got it last year.”

The winners of the Inter School Dancesport Challenge will put their dance in the spotlight, as on TV.

Mark provides the music with a carefully curated playlist.

“It’s about getting them out and having a fun day.”

  • Dries Mertens (OVR 84 – DRI 88)

Lionel Messi (OVR 91 – DRI 94)

DEADLY DRIBBLER – Messi is renowned for his incredible runs

One of the highest rated cards in the game, Lionel Messi has always been known for his close control and jingle runs.

Probably best used as a CAM now, his better passing and dribbling attributes make for a brutal combination.

Neymar Jr (OVR 89 – DRI 93)

BRAZILIAN BRILLIANCE – Neymar likes to put on a show

Joining his PSG teammate, Neymar arrives as the second best dribbler on FIFA 23.

His overall rating may have taken a hit, but there’s no denying that this guy is a magician with the ball at his feet.

Kylian Mbappé (OVR 91 – DRI 92)

KING KYLIAN – Mbappe is an outrageously good player

Kylian Mbappe completes PSG’s scary top three, with the trio making up the top three best dribblers!

His blistering pace coupled with high level dribbling makes for a deadly combination.

Bernardo Silva (OVR 88 – DRI 92)

BRILLIANT BERNARDO – Silva is silky smooth with the ball

We’ve seen Bernardo Silva show off his incredible dribbling abilities on numerous occasions, forcing his way through gaps you didn’t know were there.

The Portuguese got a slight upgrade in FIFA 23 after showing just how integral he is to Man City’s setup.

Marco Verratti (OVR 87 – DRI 91)

MINI MAGICIAN – The little guy is like a burrow in the middle of the park

The fourth (and final) PSG player on the list is their mini-maestro, Marco Verratti.

He’s so classy on the ball, with great control and some of the best all-rounders to boot!

Paulo Dybala (OVR 86 – DRI 90)

Now at Roma, Dybala appears to be reborn and has been a constant asset to his team up front.

Despite a slight downgrade, he remains a solid choice for any formation.

Mohamed Salah (OVR 90 – DRI 90)

LIVERPOOL LEGEND – Salah will remain one of the Reds’ best

Mohamed Salah has been one of the best players in the world for a few seasons.

His good pace, shooting and dribbling make him a devastating threat in the final third.

Vinicius Junior (OVR 86 – DRI 90)

REAL TALENT – Madrid have another superstar in their ranks

Vinicius Junior will be one of the most exciting cards to use in FIFA 23.

A massive upgrade comes after a stellar season, where he showed off his dribbling skills to help Real Madrid win the La Liga title and the Champions League.

Thiago (OVR 86 – DRI 90)

SILKY PLAYER – Thiago brings class to Liverpool midfielder

Liverpool’s Thiago is another man who combines passing and dribbling.

He is a fluid operator and can pass with such ease thanks to the space he creates with the ball at his feet.

Riyad Mahrez (OVR 86 – DRI 90)

WING WIZARD – Mahrez keeps getting better at City

There aren’t many who have a better first touch than Riyad Mahrez.

When he stops the dead ball, defenders know they’ll be in real trouble, as he fights his way in and around the box.

WASHINGTON – Mitch Coughlon is the reigning Star Boys Journal Male Football Player of the Year.

But on Wednesday, the Washington high school multi-sport athlete stood on Babcook Field, dressed in his football jersey, holding a hoop as high school students with disabilities tossed or kicked footballs through it.

“It’s all about participation,” Coughlon said. “I love sports, I love being on teams and competing. This day is also about giving these kids that chance, and I love seeing it.

“Their happiness is our joy.”

Charlie Smith, a junior from Washington Community High School, dances his heart out during a dance party on Babcook Field to end Mid-Illini's Unified PE Field Day Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2022 in Washington.  Approximately 200 special needs students and their assistants from across the Mid-Illini conference played games, held a balloon relay race, and danced on the field for the inaugural event.

Coughlon was among 30 Washington student-athletes from multiple sports — football, baseball, soccer, volleyball and more — who were appointed by their college coaches to manage play stations set up on Babcook Field for 200 students in unified physical education and their “peer buddies” from the Mid-Illini conference.

Heading into Sunday’s game against Colorado, the Buffaloes hadn’t lost in 14 straight sets. The Razorbacks responded by handing them three straight losses, which marks 18 straight wins for Arkansas. The Hogs have now reached a record six-game sweep, last achieved in the 2001 season.

It was also Colorado’s first loss this season, and both teams are now 7-1. The Hogs and Buffs received votes in this week’s AVCA poll.

“Really strong performance this weekend. Collectively proud of the team effort. We played really clean today, we struggled to find points against a great team from Colorado,” the team said. “Head coach Jason Watson. “I think we’re in a good position to approach two equally tough non-conference games. I’m looking forward to playing at home on Thursday and Friday.

Junior Taylor Head carried the Hog offense again in Sunday’s Arkansas Invitational Finals with 13 kills and 10 digs for a double-double. She also had a team-best three service aces, which is a new season high. Sophomore setter Hannah Hogue paced the Hogs with 24 assists and 14 digs for a double-double performance as well, her third of the season.

Senior Maggie Cartwright was the difference on both sides of the ball that day with nine kills on 23 attempts for a .304 hit percentage and five blocks. Three Hogs had five or more blocks in Arkansas’ 12-team total, the third time the Razorbacks have posted a season-best dozen blocks. Cartwright and graduate middle tackle Tatum Shipes had five, while graduate Abigail Archibong led Arkansas with a season-high six.

Set 1
Arkansas started the game on a 5-3 streak, but Colorado stayed on the heels of the Hogs and tied the game three times early. The Razorbacks then chained a four-point streak with two kills from Head, one from Cartwright and a solo block from Hailey Dirrigl for a 15-11 lead at media timeout. The Hogs then scored four of the next six runs, which sent the Buffs to a timeout with Arkansas leading 19-13. The break rejuvenated Colorado and the visitors came within one at 19-18, but Arkansas responded and tied a 5-2 run to force the set point. The Buffs called time, but a Cartwright kill ended the set 25-20 in favor of the Razorbacks.

Set 2
The Hogs came out blazing in the second set with a 9-3 advantage to start, which included two aces from second-year Libero Courtney Jackson and a pair of kills from Head. The Buffs called time but couldn’t generate much off the break, and Arkansas quickly went up 14-5. The Hogs added three more runs to double the lead, and Colorado curled up again. The home team went over 20 points with a Dirrigl kill and picked up two more points afterwards for a 10-point advantage. The Buffs caught three of the next four, but a service error gave Arkansas the set point. Colorado recovered one, but a Head kill made the Hogs 25-16 and put Arkansas ahead 2-0 in the game.

Set 3
While the Buffaloes came within one four times early in the third set, the Hogs showed no mercy afterward. A 5-1 run at Arkansas pushed the score to 12-7 and Colorado called a timeout. The Razorbacks won four of the next five runs, including an ace from Head, and went up 16-8. A kill from Dirrigl and an ace from Gillen extended the lead to 19-10, and a block from Head and Shipes took Arkansas over 20. Colorado cut the lead to eight, but three consecutive Hog points, including consecutive Head aces. to end it, sealed Arkansas’ 25-14 set victory and the game’s third sweep in as many days.

Next
A top-five showdown awaits the Razorbacks next as the No. 5 Georgia Tech Yellowjackets come to town Thursday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. at Barnhill Arena in the Arkansas Challenge. It will be the highest-ranked opponent Arkansas has hosted at home since No. 3 Florida in the 2017 season, in which the Razorbacks fell in five to the Gators. The game saw Arkansas’ ninth-best crowd with 1,343 fans. The Hogs will also face the NC State Wolfpack the next day, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. Tickets are available online, over the phone, or in person through the Razorback Ticket Center.
