Earlier this year, Ons Jabeur, from Tunisia, became the first Arab woman and African woman to win a WTA 1000 title - a major title in the women's game. Now at number two in the world, she is the highest ever ranked African player. She's been in great form and is playing her first ever semi final at a grand slam – and not the least at Wimbledon - widely regarded as the most prestigious tennis tournament. Although the continent has had several tennis players reaching the highest levels of the sport, such as Kevin Anderson and Amanda Coetzer, Africa has often had few stars in the tennis world. Now, there are several promising juniors on the rise. Angella Okutoyi from Kenya recently made history at the Australian Open junior grand slam event, while Isabella Kruger from South Africa is on a winning streak in this year's junior Wimbledon. But requiring funding, facilities and equipment, tennis remains a difficult sport to access for many. Alan Kasujja speaks to sports journalist Reem Abulleil and Secretary General of Tennis Kenya, Wanjiru Mbugua-Karani to find out how how Africa can produce more tennis stars.

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Tuesday, June 27th, 2022. Pastor Toby is on vacation this week, spending time with his family… Again, I want to start this newsbrief off talking about our conference, because early bird pricing is coming to an end! Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more. Early bird tickets are available now, but will be gone before you know it! Sign up now at flfnetwork.com https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-new-york-supreme-court-strikes-down-law-that-allowed-non-citizens-to-vote?utm_campaign=64487 New York Supreme Court strikes down law that allowed non-citizens to vote New York City's City Council approved a measure in January to give non-citizens the right to vote in local elections. But after a suit was brought by the GOP lawmakers, the New York Supreme Court ruled that no, non-citizens do not have the right to vote. The plan would have added some 800,000 New Yorkers to the voting rolls, and would have allowed them to vote for mayor, public advocate, city council, borough presidents, and school boards. Justice Ralph Porzio said that the law was in direct violation of the New York State Constitution. "The New York State Constitution expressly states that citizens meeting the age and residency requirements are entitled to register and vote in elections," he said. "Though voting is a right so many citizens take for granted, the City of New York cannot 'obviate' the restrictions imposed by the Constitution," Porzio continued, going on to say that "the weight of the citizens’ vote will be diluted by municipal voters and candidates and political parties alike will need to reconfigure their campaigns." The bill allowed non-citizens to register in political parties and vote in local elections if they hold green cards or have working visas. The only additional requirement for non-citizens is that they have been residents of New York City for a mere 30 days. In striking down the law, Porzio said that "Though Plaintiffs have not suffered harm today, the harm they will suffer is imminent." The bill was slated to go into effect for the 2023 election year. Outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio was not in favor of the measure, but agreed to sign the law anyway. Current Mayor Eric Adams was on board with the bill, saying that while the bill might not be legal, green card holders should get the vote. The idea was that because they were impacted by local leaders, and were being taxed, they should also vote, despite that being a right only for US citizens. The bill was touted by immigrant activists as necessary, because those immigrant non-citizens pay taxes and should therefore be permitted to vote. Staten Island City Councilman Joe Borelli said of the ruling that: "Today's decision validates those of us who can read the plain English words of our state constitution and state statutes: Noncitizen voting in New York is illegal, and shame on those who thought they could skirt the law for political gain. Opposition to this measure was bipartisan and cut across countless neighborhood and ethnic lines, yet progressives chose to ignore both our constitution and public sentiment in order to suit their aims. I commend the court in recognizing reality and reminding New York's professional protestor class that the rule of law matters." https://www.dailywire.com/news/disney-offering-johnny-depp-301-million-to-return-to-movie-franchise-report?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=dwbrand Disney Offering Johnny Depp $301 Million To Return To Movie Franchise: Report Hollywood actor Johnny Depp is reportedly set to return to Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise after the entertainment giant offered Depp a whopping $301 million to return the role. Depp was let go from the franchise in 2018 after starring in five movies, making the film’s box office successes and some of the most profitable movies of all time. A jury recently found that Amber Heard defamed Depp in an op-ed about domestic violence, published by The Washington Post in 2018. It was alleged that Depp was let go from “Pirates of the Caribbean” in part because of the claims made in that op-ed. An insider told the Australian outlet Poptopic that Disney is “very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp. They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another ‘Pirates’ film or two.” “I know corporate sent him a gift basket with a very heartfelt letter, but I’m unsure how it was received,” the source alleged. “But what I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow — so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.” According to Poptopic’s insider, the company is “prepping a deal for USD$301 million deal that will include a sizable donation to a charity of Depp’s choice. The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off Disney Plus series about the early life of the Captain of The Black Pearl.” Following his legal victory, Depp said in a statement, “Six years later, the jury gave me my life back … I am truly humbled.” Personally, as much as I love Johnny’s portrayal of Captain Jack, I think it’s time for he and the franchise to end… the movies just weren’t as good, but as we all know Disney, I’m sure they’ll want to keep their cash cow afloat.

"The gas station owner is the least responsible for high prices. The cost of theft gets passed on in higher prices, and when people are driving around with unsecured stolen fuel, it is a concern to anybody."Air Force veteran co-founder of NGT Academy, a network engineering and cybersecurity training academy, Terry Kim said: "It's really sad because who's really losing out in these types of situations is the gas station owner.""You can literally put them completely out of business [into] bankruptcy by doing this kind of stuff. Even though stealing oil might be helping people or getting free gas, this is really a bad thing for these gas station owners," he said.In Virginia Beach, Virginia earlier this month, police observed "numerous vehicles" using devices to pump gas from a Citgo station that was closed at the time. "Individuals were then selling the gasoline at a discounted rate through a phone application and had advertised the operation on social media. It was determined that thousands of dollars worth of gasoline was stolen from the business over several days," the Virginia Beach Police Department said in a June 14 press release. As Fox News reproted: To protect themselves from cyberattacks, fuel retailers should make sure their networks are up-to-date and properly secured so that their technology infrastructure has no vulnerabilities, or weaknesses allowing hackers to infiltrate their networks and steal or change information. Stores and franchises should also train their employees, Kim and NGT Academy co-founder Jacob Hess said.More thieves are stealing gas in the United States, with 25% of fuel retailers reporting an increase in gas thefts.Physical gas thefts not involving cyberattacks are another issue. Now it’s time for the topic that I love… sports! https://nypost.com/2022/06/26/novak-djokovic-wont-get-covid-vaccine-to-play-us-open/ Novak Djokovic won’t change mind on COVID vaccine to play US Open Novak Djokovic knows that, as things stand now, Wimbledon will be his last Grand Slam tournament of 2022, because he will not be able to play in the U.S. Open — he has not received any COVID-19 shots and can’t enter the United States as an unvaccinated foreigner. “That,” the 35-year-old from Serbia said Saturday at the All England Club, “is an extra motivation to do well here.” Djokovic began this season tied with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at 20 major championships, then the record for a man. But Djokovic’s decision not to get vaccinated led to his deportation from Australia before the Australian Open in January — and Nadal wound up winning that tournament to get his 21st. Nadal then beat Djokovic in the quarterfinals at the French Open en route to earning his 22nd Slam title this month. When Wimbledon starts on Monday, Djokovic will have the honor of opening play at Centre Court as the defending champion. He is seeded No. 1 and will be bidding for a fourth consecutive title at the All England Club and seventh overall. “Hopefully I can have a very good tournament, as I have done in the last three editions. Then I’ll just have to wait and see. I would love to go to States. But as of today, that’s not possible,” said Djokovic, who has come down with COVID-19 twice. “There is not much I can do anymore. I mean, it’s really up to the U.S. government to make a decision whether or not they allow unvaccinated people to go into the country.” A reporter noted that Djokovic does still have time to get vaccinated before play begins at Flushing Meadows on Aug. 29, and then asked him whether “you’ve completely closed your mind to that as an option.” Djokovic replied with one word: “Yes.” This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief… If you liked the show, go ahead and hit that share button.

10 Questions with Adam Zwar

It’s been seven years since I last interviewed Ash Williams for this podcast. Back then, the former Hughesy and Kate co-host had recently returned from LA, where he’d made guest appearances on Anger Management, The Exes and You’re The Worst. He also sold photos of his feet, appeared in tickling videos and worked as a shirtless waiter at a gay bar. We’ll hear all about that in this interview. But in recent years, he’s been a  morning television regular, fronted colour reports for the Australian Open and hosted Miss Universe Australia. But probably his biggest gig was appearing in I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. We talk about all that in the interview and you can also check out the related video content at adamzwar.substack.com. This is a public episode.

BlackFacts.com presents the black fact of the day for June 22.Arthur Ashe leads UCLA to the NCAA tennis championship.Ashe was coached and mentored by Robert Walter Johnson at his tennis summer-camp home in Lynchburg, Virginia.Johnson helped fine-tune Ashe's game and taught him the importance of racial socialization through sportsmanship, etiquette and the composure that would later become an Ashe hallmark. In 1958, Ashe became the first African American to play in the Maryland boys' championships. It was also his first integrated tennis competition.In 1963, he became the first black player ever selected for the United States Davis Cup team. In 1965, ranked the number 3 player in the United States, Ashe won both the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) singles title and the doubles title (with Ian Crookenden of New Zealand), helping UCLA win the team NCAA tennis championship.His criticism of South African apartheid racial policy led to denial of permission to play in that country's open tournament, and, as a consequence, on March 23, 1970, South Africa was excluded from Davis Cup competition.He was the only black man ever to win the singles title at Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Australian Open.After his retirement, Ashe took on many roles, including writing for Time magazine and The Washington Post, commentating for ABC Sports and HBO from the early 1980s.Learn black history, teach black history at blackfacts.com

First off, recent Swiss Open finalist Martyn Turner (1:18) joins the show to discuss his impressive form this year, his time as a PDC Tour Card holder, why he and Darren Johnson are on the 'Last of the Summer Wine Tour', overcoming anxiety and low self-belief and nicknaming himself 'The Crap Peter Wright'. Lorraine Hyde (43:11) then calls in to discuss her Lakeside debut earlier this year, her daughter's reaction to seeing her mum on TV, wanting to get back to the Worlds as a seed next year and how she was feeling ahead of the Six Nations this past weekend. Andrew also gives his thoughts on the Six Nations, including the phantom leg between England and Ireland, the Dutch Open seeming lower numbers than usual and the first few qualifiers for the Australian Open.

I'm feeling a little feisty today as I share my thoughts, opinions and analysis on the latest in what's happening in the world of sports. On deck: (4:15) The Tampa Bay Lightning showed some championship DNA as they pulled out a much needed last second win in Game 3 to get back in the series vs. the Rangers. Will they draw even to bring the series back to New York tied? More importantly, what will convince me that the Lightning are back to their usual Cup winning selves as they try to go for a three-peat? In the West, the Avalanche are in a great position as they look to sweep the Oilers in a Game 4 tonight and make it to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 21 years. Can they do it? (17:20) We are two games into the NBA Finals as the series shifts to Boston come Wednesday night. The Celtics were able to steal Game 1 with a 4th quarter barrage of 3-point shots. Game 2 was quite the opposite as the Warriors had another overwhelming 3rd quarter, but did not give back the lead the way they did in Game 1. I'll break down what took place over the first couple of games and what to possibly expect as we get to the middle of this series and beyond. Also, some news coming out of Utah as Jazz coach, Quin Snyder steps down from his eight year tenure with the team. Their franchise player, Donovan Mitchell, wasn't too happy about the news. Is there damage control that needs to be done between their star player and the front office? (32:32) Quite a bit has happened in baseball over the past few days. I'll start with the Angels as their free-fall has them in an eleven game losing streak. The latest loss to the Phillies was a back breaker as they blew two big leads late. What does this mean for the manager, Joe Maddon? Does he survive? Considering former Phillie manager Joe Girardi was let go on Friday. They have hit the skids and may not be long for any pennant race before July 1st. Watch out for the Atlanta Braves as they look to be over their World Series hangover. The Padres win 3 of 4 in Milwaukee as the Cardinals have inched closer to the top of the NL Central with winning 3 out of 4 themselves in Chicago against the Cubs. The Mets salvaged a split with the Dodgers in LA as they got out of dodge with a wild 5-4 victory on Sunday. And the Red Sox have heated up as they're back to .500 after a sluggish start. (44:48) The French Open concluded with a thud as the #1 women's player in the world, Iga Swiatek defeated Coco Gauff as she's now won the first two Grand Slams of 2022. And Rafael Nadal coasted to his 14th French Open win and 22nd Grand Slam overall in convincing fashion at Roland Garros. CORRECTION: I mentioned that Iga Swiatek has won the first two Grand Slam tournaments of 2022. Ash Barty won the first major (The Australian Open) back in January. (49:07) You had four players retire from the NFL this past week. Frank Gore, the NFL's 3rd all time leading rusher. Alex Mack, the longtime center of the Browns, Niners and Falcons. Stephon Tuitt, defensive end of the Steelers and journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, which leads to... (51:33) ...my Hero and Zero of the Week.

Lo sport ha davvero un ruolo sempre più importante nelle nostre vite...non a caso, è uno dei principali argomenti di conversazione (e discussione, a volte) tra amici, famigliari e conoscenti!Probabilmente lo sport più popolare in Italia è il calcio, ma in realtà gli italiani sono piuttosto bravi anche negli altri sport. Se non ci credete, leggete questo articolo in cui vi parlo degli 8 sportivi italiani più bravi e più amati degli ultimi anni... sicuramente vi ricrederete! 8 SPORTIVI ITALIANI FAMOSI IN TUTTO IL MONDO In questo articolo parleremo di veri e propri “mostri sacri”, sportivi o ex-sportivi le cui età vanno da sotto i 30 anni a poco sopra i 40. Per ognuno di loro, vi dirò lo sport per cui sono famosi e qualche curiosità, tra cui i loro motti e soprannomi. Menzionerò anche libri sulle loro vite, di cui vi lascerò i link di affiliazione Amazon, se volete darci un'occhiata! 1. FEDERICA PELLEGRINI (1988) Federica Pellegrini è, senza ombra di dubbio, la più grande nuotatrice italiana di tutti i tempi - non a caso, il suo soprannome è “La Divina”. Infatti ha partecipato a ben cinque Olimpiadi e, nel 2021, è entrata nella storia come l'unica atleta a conquistare la quinta finale olimpica nella stessa distanza (i 200 metri stile libero). Generosa e molto attiva nel sociale, nasconde anche una lato fashion: dopo l'addio alle gare nel 2021, ha rivelato che vorrebbe creare una propria linea di moda. Se siete appassionati di nuoto e volete saperne di più su di lei, sappiate che sono stati pubblicati diversi libri che riportano la sua biografia, come “La campionessa. Vita da record”, oppure “Vincere, vivere, sorprendere: lo stile libero di una leggenda italiana”. 2. MATTEO BERRETTINI (1996) Probabilmente avete già sentito parlare di Matteo Berrettini, il quale è considerato uno dei tennisti italiani più forti di tutti i tempi. Forse in molti lo riconoscono per essere stato l'unico italiano ad aver disputato la finale del torneo di Wimbledon (2021), ma ha anche disputato la semifinale agli Australian Open e i quarti di finale in tutte le prove del Grande Slam, oltre a essere stato semifinalista agli US Open.Niente male per un ragazzo di soli 26 anni! Nel mondo del tennis è addirittura conosciuto con il soprannome di "The Hammer" (il martello), per via dei suoi potenti colpi di servizio e dritto. 3. CAROLINA KOSTNER (1987) Carolina Kostner è una pattinatrice artistica su ghiaccio. Le sue statistiche sono impressionanti e parlano da sé: nove primi posti ai Campionati italiani; cinque vittorie ai Campionati europei; quattro medaglie ai Campionati del mondo e il bronzo ai Giochi Olimpici invernali del 2014.Carolina è una grandissima professionista con tantissimi anni di esperienza alle spalle: pensate che ha cominciato a pattinare alla giovane età di 4 anni! Il suo è uno sport veramente molto bello ed elegante e se non avete visto qualche sua prestazione, correte a farlo! Il suo motto? “La vita è come il pattinaggio: se cadi, devi avere la forza di rialzarti”. La storia di Carolina è molto interessante e c'è un libro che racconta un momento particolare della sua vita che mi ha colpito. Se siete appassionati del genere o siete curiosi di scoprire di più sulla sua vita privata, ve lo consiglio! 4. VALENTINO ROSSI (1979) In Italia, se dici Moto GP, pensi a lui: Valentino Rossi. Si tratta infatti di uno dei piloti più titolati del motociclismo, con ben 9 titoli mondiali vinti. Vanta parecchi primati tra cui, ad esempio, l'esser stato il primo italiano a vincere il Mondiale in tre diverse categorie (125, 250 e 500). Ha una personalità simpatica e scherzosa, e una capacità innata di saper conquistare il pubblico. Il suo soprannome? “The Doctor”, datogli dai suoi amici più stretti perché in Italia si dice che sei un “dottore” quando sei molto bravo a fare qualcosa... e lui, con la moto, era davvero molto molto bravo.

He's been ranked #1 in the world for a record 370 consecutive weeks. And he's the defending champion heading into the French Open, which begins this weekend. But despite his brilliance on the court, Djokovic has never been beloved by tennis fans in the same way his rivals Nadal and Roger Federer have been. This past January, Djokovic found himself the center of controversy ahead of the Australian Open, when he was deported by the Australian government because of his vaccine status. Sam Borden traveled to Djokovic's native Serbia to learn how he is preparing for his return to Grand Slam tennis following the fiasco in Australia.

Enjoy our interview with Michael Mmoh - winner of the USTA's Roland-Garros wild card in 2022. Below is a snippet of our feature on Michael, for more info go to www.tennisnow.com! As a top junior, Michael Mmoh knows a thing or two about heavy expectations. He was the No.2-ranked junior in 2015, pushing for junior Slam titles and thought of as one of the most promising American players. He remains one of the more promising Americans, but one with unfinished business in 2022. Mmoh, the son of Toni Mmoh, who is a former World No.105 that played for Nigeria during his career, believes he is on the rise after several seasons of fits and starts due to injuries. He recently won the USTA's French Open wild card playoff and will take his place in the main draw at Roland-Garros for the second time next week. Having topped out in the ATP rankings at 96 in 2018, Mmoh currently ranks 179 – but, at the age of 24, he feels he has the capacity to go much higher. We asked him if players like Aslan Karatsev, who came from relative obscurity to become the lowest-ranked player to reach the Australian Open semifinals on his Grand Slam debut, inspire him to believe that he can rise up the ranks on tour. “[Players like that] show me that no matter how long you might be playing challengers or whatever that doesn't necessarily mean that you are a challenger player,” he said. “It just hasn't clicked yet in terms of you making that breakthrough, and I feel like if I'm able to consistently be healthy and just give myself opportunities week in and week out, I feel like my game belongs on the ATP Tour, so I think if I'm able to just keep working hard, keep staying healthy, I'll be surprised if I'm not there.” Despite struggling with injuries over the last few seasons, Mmoh has made big strides. He won his first Grand Slam main draw match at the Australian Open in 2020 and has since reached the second round at two other majors. The potential to do damage on the biggest stages is there – now it's just about getting everything in sync, mentally and physically. “I would always miss four months here, three months there, so now I feel like my body is finally at a place where I am able to play week in and week out and I'm liking how my game is forming because of that,” Mmoh says. “I'm able to get consistent reps of playing matches and I really think this year is going to be a good year for me because of that.” Mmoh spends a lot of time training in Bradenton, Florida, where he is a regular hitting partner of Sebastian Korda, Denis Shapovalov and other top pros. He says the experience can only help him. “It's a very competitive atmosphere, I'm able to hit with Sebi a lot, Shapo when he's here. Obviously my goal is to be playing with these guys week in and week out, and it's a good place to train because it feels like you are on the tour with them when you are training with them.” Read the full article at Tennisnow.com!

92. Cops, Strips Clubs That Serve Food, Forest Bathing (w/ Chon Travis)

Phil & Jake are joined by dear old pal Chon Travis (from Love Equals Death) to rank cops, strip clubs that serve food, and the activity known as forest bathing on the List of Every Damn Thing.Find Chon on Instagram (@therealchontravis) and Facebook (chon.travis), and check out his band Love Equals Death (follow that link to find out their show dates)!If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: The Cops television show was a reality TV show in which a camera crew followed police around. The police departments got final approval of what was included in the show but it was educational to see what police thought made them look good.  District Attorneys are adjacent to cops, but aren't exactly cops. Training Day is a movie about Denzel Washington as a bad cop. Columbo is TV good cop who is completely non-violent and walks around being an unassuming disheveled genius and catching rich people who do murders. Lethal Weapon is a movie about two cops, one of whom is a "Lethal Weapon" because he's suicidal. Die Hard is a movie about an off-duty cop and an on-duty cop (who shot a child while on duty) learning to trust each other. Beverly Hills Cop a movie about a cop from Detroit who goes to Beverly Hills and puts a banana in the tailpipe of cops there. Movie cops are always good or at least necessary. England is a country where cops don't carry guns. We discuss gun ownership. In the USA, 3 in 10 adults say they own a gun. It's something like 40% of men and 20% of women. RoboCop is another movie about cops in which the police force has been privatized. It's fantastic and Ronny Cox from Beverly Hills Cop is fantastic in it as Dick Jones. The Pinkertons were founded as a sort of private police force to crush labor. Rod Lavers shoes are Adidas sneakers named for the great Australian tennis star Rodney Laver. The Australian Open is played in an arena named for him as well. They're fantastic shoes but the best ones are white and it's hard to keep them clean. Firefighters are people who fight fire. When Phil imagined a fire that hated firefighters he was thinking of a little stinker like this guy. Clowns are people trying to make other people laugh. Commandos are special military units. Theodore Roosevelt was a US President and an extremely colorful character who's personally responsible for a lot of death and pain.  The Last Starfighter was a nice little movie that's somehow never been remade. It's about a kid in a trailer park who, by virtue of being good at video games, gets recruited into an interstellar war. Howard the Duck is a movie about a duck who falls in love with Lea Thompson. Capitalism is the system we live in that makes ethical consumption impossible. Middle school is a necessary evil, a place to put young teens. Gambit is a fictional character, a superhero and member of the X-men. He wears a long trench coat and a weird thing on his head. Hoarders is a TV show in which the pain and mental illness of real people is mined for cheap thrills.  Steven Seagal is a movie star who's been credibly accused of sexual assault and has incredibly accused himself of being a yogi, a holy man, a secret agent, a Navy SEAL & a martial arts master. The British Royal Family are pretty bad. Jon Voigt had been really good in a lot of films. He's as low as he is almost entirely because he said some stuff Phil & Jake didn't agree with. Phil even liked his accent in Anaconda. Jenny McCarthy is pretty low on the list because she has some trash opinions. 48 Hrs. was followed by a sequel, Another 48 Hours. The second sequel, 127 Hours, is a big departure for the franchise. Flashdance is probably underrated by us. Karina Longworth went into why in a recent episode of You Must Remember This.

On finals weekend in Madrid, Carlos Alcaraz beat Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev back-to-back-to-back and Ons Jabeur became the first Arab woman to lift a WTA 1000 title, leaving us with two stunning stories to discuss. Catherine joins David and Matt to reveal what it was like to be there and watch it all from up close. Which of Alcaraz's wins was the most impressive? How will Nadal and Djokovic respond to his challenge going into Roland Garros? How does Jabeur embrace being a pioneer? And is she in The Mix for the French Open? We also talk in depth about numerous scheduling issues, including why Zverev was right to complain about playing so late, but also why the women had it much worse, with the not before start time for the final between Jabeur and Jessica Pegula particularly unacceptable. Moving on to Rome, we call out the shameful discrepancy in prize money for the men and women.

David and Matt get stuck into the main talking point from the last few days in Madrid. What's different about Ons Jabeur this week? Why will so many people be happy if she wins the title? And what's going on with the scheduling which made Jessica Pegula and Jil Teichmann walk out to a practically empty stadium for their semi-final? On the men's side, disappointment about Andy Murray's withdrawal ahead of facing Novak Djokovic is made up for by excitement about Carlos Alcaraz vs Rafael Nadal. We discuss all four players, as well as a much-needed strong performance from Felix Auger-Aliassime, and Andrey Rublev's stress on court.

WATCH: U.S. 'out of the pandemic phase,' Fauci says Well folks you heard our COVID Over-Lord, we’re out of the pandemic. I’m sure that means the coast is 100% clear! Happy Thursday everyone, today’s News Brief is for Thursday, April 28th, 2022. Just so you guys know, you still have an opportunity to sign up for our last stop in the CrossPolitic Liberty Tour, as we’ll be in Phoenix Arizona, on May 19th, and we’ll be joined by Pastor Jeff Durbin of Apologia Church, and Political analyst Delano Squires, who has made appearances on the Blaze, and the Tucker Carlson show. For only $20, you could be in the audience, as we talk about the five stones, of true liberty! Something our country really needs to be thinking about, as I’m sure our government would love to snatch that away from us given the chance. https://fox2now.com/news/national/fauci-says-us-is-out-of-the-pandemic-stage/ Anyways, back to that Fauci guy. Fauci says US is ‘out of the pandemic phase’. The nation’s top immunologist said Tuesday that the country has finally moved past the pandemic stage after more than two years, pointing to the U.S. population’s current rates of infection, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. But what does that mean going forward? Well, Fauci warned, that vaccines, which in his words are — one of the most effective tools against infection and serious illness — are still essential for keeping the country from backsliding, but he couldn’t say how often Americas would need to be boostered. He threw out, that might be every year, that might be longer, in order to keep that level low… I’m reminded of a talk that a friend of our show, Steve Deace gave, at our Fight Laugh Feast Rally in South Dakota. In that talk, he mentioned how this was not a one-time event… this was a harvest. I’ll play some of this clip where he talks about his book, Faucian Bargain. https://flfnetwork.com/fight-laugh-feast-rally-in-sd-2021-archive/ -Play 8:38-10:30 It ain’t about a virus… you can watch the rest of Steve’s talk in our club portal by the way… so if you’re not a club member, sign up flfnetwork.com/membership.

The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more. Early bird tickets will be available starting in the middle of March.

Well what do you mean? Aren’t feminists champions of this day and age? Well according to RedState, Miss Buckley was scheduled to speak at the iconic institution about British Romanticism. But though her appearance was centered on poetry and philosophy, someone at the school discovered online information regarding her and transgenderism. Fast forward to her talk getting 86’d. As noted by The Post Millennial, Devin’s a board member for the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF). Wolf in sheep’s clothing maybe? Per its website, the group boasts a gender-related mission: To abolish regressive gender roles and the epidemic of male violence using legal arguments, policy advocacy, and public education. In service to said abolition, WoLF has a plan: Their website reads, To Facilitate a cultural shift away from gender roles and sex-stereotypes. Defend sex-segregation of domestic violence shelters and prisons, which affects the most consistently vulnerable, impoverished, and abused women. Support the needs of lesbian and bisexual women. Speak out against targeted censorship and defend free speech for women. Well great, so far so good, this keeps up with the current zeitgeist. Now prepare for the problematic: Defend sex-segregation of women’s sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms. Support detransitioners in their struggle to be healed and heard. Uh oh…now you’ve really kicked the hornet’s nest… On April 18th, Devin reportedly received an email from an English department employee: I have some bad news. As we were preparing the application for next year’s funding, my co-coordinator looked you up on Google to include the correct details about you on the application. Controversy was uncovered: She was surprised to find that your public profile is largely rooted in controversial issues regarding trans identity and that you’re on the board of an organization that takes a public stance regarding trans people as dangerous and deceptive. Since you’re mostly engaging in the public sphere as more of a polemicist than Romanticist, this puts the…department and myself in an uneasy position. By the way, according to Merriam Webster, polemicist is defined as:an aggressive attack on or refutation of the opinions or principles of another. The email continued: Really, it’s not so much because of your own personal conviction regarding trans identity. It’s more about the public stance you’ve taken and how you’ve recently crafted a professional presence around these issues. I’m so sorry we can’t extend the formal invitation I promised you. You get the idea… Well Devin’s none too impressed. She replied: “This is a case of Harvard deplatforming me for political reasons entirely unrelated to my scholarship, if it is unacceptable for me to speak at Harvard on British poetry and philosophy because I am a feminist, then I invite Harvard to purge its libraries and museums of all those who hold views unacceptable to Harvard. If I am to be silenced, then why do the tomes and treatises of history’s innumerable sexist, racist, homophobes still sit on Harvard’s hallowed shelves and continue to be cited with reverence? Harvard should cleanse them all and leave nothing but the purity of empty space. Very interesting… it appears that we’re getting to a place where all the toxic ideologies out there are going to start gobbling up one another, and I for one, can’t wait to watch it. And hey, as the bullets get ready to fly, you better get some protection! Well I’ve got just the company for you… The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights. In the Armored Republic there is no King but Christ. We are Free Craftsmen. Body Armor is a Tool of Liberty. We create Tools of Liberty. Free men must remain ever vigilant against tyranny wherever it appears. God has given us the tools of liberty needed to defend the rights He bestowed to us. Armored Republic is honored to offer you those Tools. Visit them, at ar500armor.com How’d you like that segway? Anyways, now it’s time to talk about the topic I love. SPORTS! Novak Djokovic allowed to defend Wimbledon title as vaccine isn’t required https://nypost.com/2022/04/26/novak-djokovic-can-play-in-wimbledon-as-vaccine-isnt-required/ According to the New York Post, Novak Djokovic will be allowed to defend his title at Wimbledon, despite not being vaccinated against COVID-19, because the shots are not required to enter Britain, All England Club chief executive Sally Bolton said Tuesday. Djokovic, a 34-year-old Serb who is ranked No. 1, missed the Australian Open in January after being deported from that country because he was not vaccinated against the illness. During the annual spring briefing ahead of Wimbledon, which starts on June 27, Bolton said that “whilst, of course, it is encouraged” that all players get vaccinated, “it will not be a condition of entry to compete” at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament this year. Djokovic, in addition to being unable to defend his championship at Melbourne Park after an 11-day legal saga over whether he could remain in Australia, had to sit out tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami because he couldn’t travel to the United States as a foreigner who is unvaccinated. I grew to respect athletes like Novak Djokovic, Aaron Rodgers, Kyrie Irving, and Jonathan Isaac, a whole lot more after their refusal to bend the knee to our COVID overlords… In Novak’s case, he made the right call, as I mentioned in my news brief last week, where numerous competitors collapsed in the Miami Open Tournament. The U.S. Tennis Association has said that it will follow whatever governmental rules are in place regarding COVID-19 vaccination status when the U.S. Open is held starting in late August. Djokovic — who has said he got COVID-19 twice, once each in 2020 and 2021 — owns 20 Grand Slam singles titles, tied with Roger Federer for the second-most for a man. They trail Rafael Nadal, who won his 21st at the Australian Open. Six of Djokovic’s trophies came at Wimbledon, including victories each of the past three times the tournament was held — in 2018, 2019 and 2021. It was not held in 2020 because of the pandemic. After what happened in Australia, Djokovic said he would be willing to sit out other Grand Slam tournaments if getting vaccinated were a requirement to compete. The next major event is the French Open, which begins on May 22, and the tournament director said last month there was nothing preventing Djokovic from defending his 2021 title in Paris. Good on you Novak, good on you. Lastly, how about a little on this day in history? https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/muhammad-ali-refuses-army-induction#:~:text=On%20April%2028%2C%201967%2C%20with,from%20boxing%20for%20three%20years. On April 28, 1967, with the United States at war in Vietnam, Ali refused to be inducted into the armed forces, saying “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong.” On June 20, 1967, Ali was convicted of draft evasion, sentenced to five years in prison, fined $10,000 and banned from boxing for three years. He stayed out of prison as his case was appealed and returned to the ring on October 26, 1970, knocking out Jerry Quarry in Atlanta in the third round. On March 8, 1971, Ali fought Joe Frazier in the “Fight of the Century” and lost after 15 rounds, the first loss of his professional boxing career. On June 28 of that same year, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned his conviction for evading the draft. At a January 24, 1974, rematch at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Ali defeated Frazier by decision in 12 rounds. On October 30 of that same year, an underdog Ali bested George Foreman and reclaimed his heavyweight champion belt. Thanks for tuning into this CrossPolitic Daily News Brief.

Six of Djokovic’s trophies came at Wimbledon, including victories each of the past three times the tournament was held — in 2018, 2019 and 2021. It was not held in 2020 because of the pandemic. After what happened in Australia, Djokovic said he would be willing to sit out other Grand Slam tournaments if getting vaccinated were a requirement to compete. The next major event is the French Open, which begins on May 22, and the tournament director said last month there was nothing preventing Djokovic from defending his 2021 title in Paris. Good on you Novak, good on you. Lastly, how about a little on this day in history? https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/muhammad-ali-refuses-army-induction#:~:text=On%20April%2028%2C%201967%2C%20with,from%20boxing%20for%20three%20years. On April 28, 1967, with the United States at war in Vietnam, Ali refused to be inducted into the armed forces, saying “I ain’t got no quarrel with those Vietcong.” On June 20, 1967, Ali was convicted of draft evasion, sentenced to five years in prison, fined $10,000 and banned from boxing for three years. He stayed out of prison as his case was appealed and returned to the ring on October 26, 1970, knocking out Jerry Quarry in Atlanta in the third round. On March 8, 1971, Ali fought Joe Frazier in the “Fight of the Century” and lost after 15 rounds, the first loss of his professional boxing career. On June 28 of that same year, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned his conviction for evading the draft. At a January 24, 1974, rematch at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Ali defeated Frazier by decision in 12 rounds. On October 30 of that same year, an underdog Ali bested George Foreman and reclaimed his heavyweight champion belt. Thanks for tuning into this CrossPolitic Daily News Brief.
