The opening rounds of doubles and singles will take place throughout the day beginning at 9 a.m.The Men of Troy are expected to have a strong showing at this week’s tournament: Off the bat, the Trojans have more first-round byes than any other team in the singles main draw. Out of eight players sent to Malibu, five have a bye Thursday in the round of 128, including top-seeded junior Logan Smith, No. 3 junior Jack Jaede, No. 4 senior Thibault Forget, No. 12 junior Laurens Verboven and unseeded senior Jens Sweaney.

All three matches in the round of 32 will begin at 9:45 a.m.In last year’s ITA Southwest Regional, Logan Smith reached the semifinal while Forget forged his way to a defeat in the title match. Smith and Forget also paired up to take on the doubles bracket in 2016 and made it to the quarterfinal.

Berekum Chelsea have confirmed participation in the next Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League following Ghana’s additional slot for the competition.Nana Oduro Sarfo, General Manager of Berekum Chelsea, told GNA Sports, the club found the news to participate in the tournament they started as debutants last year, welcoming and desperate to grab with both hands.“We have agreed to grab the opportunity and hoping to represent Ghana with the aim of achieving better results at a second attempt.”Chelsea’s impressive debut outing last year was the catalyst for the re-entry into the top ranked teams.The Berekum side narrowly missed out on a place at the semis at the first attempt at the highest level of African club football despite being in a tough group alongside former winners’ Al-Ahly and Zamalek (both of Egypt) and TP Mazembe (DR Congo).Sarfo said “playing in Africa means a lot to the club and the players alike. Apart from the opportunity of winning laurels, the players understand that it was through such moments that the likes of Emmanuel Clottey and Solomon Asante secured contracts outside Ghana”. He said the club had set their sight on going a step further in the competition at a second attempt. Berekum Chelsea came second in the just-ended Premiership behind Kotoko.Last Monday, Ghana regained her four slots for the continental club championships effective next year.The decision came after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) recaptured its place amongst the 12-best nations according to the rankings of the continental soccer governing body, CAF.This will be the first time since 2006 that Ghana will be parading two teams in both competitions

Watford boss Gracia: Big Ben key to Bournemouth pointby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford boss Javi Gracia praised goalkeeper Ben Foster after their 3-3 draw with Bournemouth.Gracia believes his side should have won the game at the Vitality Stadium, but that ultimately their defending of set pieces cost them dearly.He said: “After scoring two goals I knew we needed to defend well because I was sure Bournemouth would create chances because they always do.“In that moment we conceded two goals from 2 free kicks and it was difficult to accept.“In the second half we tried to have more control, but first of all we have to defend the free kicks better because we conceded two goals from it.“We had the chance to kill the game with more control. We didn’t do it.”Watford came under heavy pressure in the second half and were saved a number of times by Foster, who received great praise from his head coach.Gracia said: “I think Ben Foster was very important in the second half for us.“I call him Big Ben. When I arrived in England, I thought it was in London but now I know it’s in Watford. He’s playing very well and is very important.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
