Wimbledon fills up from quarter-finals
3:46 pm: The tennis players at Wimbledon will again play in front of fully filled stands from the quarter finals. The capacity for the matches on Center Court and Court 1 will be used to the maximum from that moment on. The All England Club announced this on Sunday.
This means that stadiums will be completely sold out in the United Kingdom for the first time since the corona pandemic began. The quarterfinals for the men and women start on Tuesday. For the finals, which take place next weekend, it was already planned that the capacity would be increased to 100 percent. In the first week, a maximum of half the number of seats could be occupied.
Spectators are still required to present a security document such as proof of full vaccination, a negative corona test or immunity after a recent infection upon arrival. They must wear masks when they walk around the complex, but that obligation does not apply when they are in the stands.
Lecomte lives up to favorites status for Play
2:31 PM: Mountain biker Loana Lecomte has also won the fourth World Cup cross-country race this season. In Les Gets, France, the only 21-year-old Frenchwoman was once again in a class of its own. Lecomte, in 2020 world champion among the promises, won all world cup competitions this year. The Swedish Jenny Rissveds finished second at a considerable distance. Britain’s Evie Richards came in third. Best Dutch was Anne Tauber in sixth place.
Lecomte had the best start in the rainy Les Gets, where there was a technical course. After one lap, her compatriot Pauline Ferrand-Prévot, Rissveds and Australia’s Rebecca McConnell followed at just over 10 seconds. Tauber and Anne Terpstra, the Dutch trump cards for the Olympic Games, had to give up a lot more time. Terpstra in particular had a hard time. Reigning world champion Ferrand-Prévot lost the connection after a fall, after which Lecomte only extended her lead over all her competitors.
Former French international Vieira new Crystal Palace coach
2:25 pm: Crystal Palace has appointed Frenchman Patrick Vieira as trainer. The former international, who played eight seasons in England for fellow city rivals Arsenal, has signed a three-year contract with the London club. He succeeds Roy Hodgson, who ended his career as a manager.
Vieira played 396 games for Arsenal under his compatriot Arsene Wenger, winning three league titles and four FA Cups in that period. He was named six times for the Premier League’s Team of the Year. After his stay at Arsenal, he played one season with Juventus and then had the necessary successes with Internazionale and Manchester City. With Inter, Vieira became three times champion in Serie A and two times cup winner. He won the FA Cup once with City. He ended his career in 2011.
The 45-year-old Vieira became world champion with his country in 1998 and European champion two years later. As a trainer, he then worked in the youth team at Manchester City and as head coach at New York City and Nice. The latter club was fired in December.
