Miami put heat on Boston, take 2-0 series lead

MIAMI, May 4 — The Miami Heat piled the pressure on bruised and battered Boston by taking a 2-0 lead in their NBA playoff series with a 102-91 victory yesterday.

Quicker and more athletic than the Celtics, who have been hampered by a series of nagging injuries, the Heat again met the challenge of the defending Eastern Conference champions and have a commanding lead in the best-of-seven second round series with Game Three set for Saturday in Boston.

LeBron James took his turn to carry the load with 24 of his game-high 35 points coming in the second half, while Game One standout Dwyane Wade added 28 points.

"This is a great team we're going against right now," James told reporters. "We're playing as hard as we can defensively and just trying to wear them down throughout the course of the game.

"They made a run but we stuck to our principles and finally wore them down."

With the game tied 80-80 midway through the fourth, the Heat embarked on a 14-0 charge to put the contest out of reach.

Boston's Paul Pierce, who was ejected from the contentious series opener with two technical fouls in the fourth quarter, returned from a strained left foot that forced him to briefly exit in the first quarter on Tuesday.

Ray Allen also played on despite having a bruised chest following a collision with James in the third but the Celtics ran out of gas.

Rajon Rondo had 20 points and 12 assists for Boston, who trailed by five points after both the second and third quarters.

The Celtics will have to regroup at home if they are to take down Miami's "Big Three" which was constructed in the off-season to challenge Boston's supremacy.

Chris Bosh, the Heat's final member of their triumvirate, finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds. — Reuters

Schalke face United seeking inspiration from win at Inter

MANCHESTER, May 4 — Schalke 04 are hoping to draw inspiration from last month's shock victory at Inter Milan when they try to overturn a 2-0 deficit away to Manchester United in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg.

The German side stunned holders Inter 5-2 in the first leg of their quarter-final at the San Siro and need to produce something similar to make amends for a woeful performance at home to United last week.

"Tomorrow we will show we can play better than we did last week and that we have learnt our lessons," Schalke coach Ralf Rangnick told a news conference on Tuesday.

"In football you can get the chance so we will see what happens... When we played in Milan against Inter people didn't give us much hope either."

The Bundesliga team's task is immense at a stadium where United have not lost for more than a year and have conceded only three goals in Europe this season.

United repeatedly tore apart Schalke's defence last week and on home soil they could prove even more devastating, even if manager Alex Ferguson is resting players ahead of Sunday's key Premier League match against Chelsea.

VISA PROBLEMS

But with Schalke having already overcome problems travelling to Manchester, with the team delayed in Germany for a couple of hours because of visa issues affecting some players, they are showing no signs of giving up without a fight.

"I think we have to be well organised in the first 10 minutes and then we have to take our chances when they're presented, even if there are just two minutes left," Rangnick said.

"You think of Manchester United and the Champions League win when they came back to win 2-1," he added, referring to the English club's stunning 1999 final victory over Bayern Munich which came after two stoppage-time goals.

United could easily have notched several more goals last week had it not been for the heroics of Manuel Neuer who Ferguson said had produced "arguably the finest goalkeeping display against us in Europe in my time."

Asked how important Neuer, who has caught United's eye as they seek to replace the retiring Edwin Van der Sar, would be on Wednesday, Rangnick grinned: "I hope a lot less important than last week." — Reuters

Meski Hanya Raih Satu Gelar, Federer Tetap Merasa Senang

Posted: 03 May 2011 04:41 AM PDT

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID,MADRID - Petenis Roger Federer merasa senang dengan penampilannya pada musim 2011 ini. Meskipun musim ini baru meraih satu gelar, Federer mengaku tetap senang menerimanya. Dia hanya berharap bisa berkarier dalam dunia tenis untuk waktu lebih lama lagi.

Berbicara pada turnamen Madrid Terbuka, pemegang 16 gelar Grand Slam itu menyatakan isi hatinya tersebut. ''Ketika Anda sudah mencapai level bagus di dunia tenis, itu membuat Anda semakin memiliki banyak motivasi. Saya hanya berharap bisa mempertahankan level tersebut lebih lama lagi,'' kata Federer.

Federer merebut gelar Doha pada Januari lalu. Dia musim ini memiliki rekor 24 kali menang dan 5 kali kalah. Meskipun demikan, dia harus kehilangan ranking nomor dua dunianya dari Novak Djovokic. Federer kehilangan ranking tersebut setelah tiga kali menelan kekalahan dari Djokovic selama 2011 ini.

''Saya berjuang di Dubai,'' kata Federer. ''Saya di Miami bagus-bagus saja sampai saya bertemu (Rafael) Nadal di semifinal.''

China Absen di Malaysia, Ganda Campuran Berpeluang Besar

Posted: 03 May 2011 04:20 AM PDT

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID,JAKARTA - Turnamen Malaysia Grand Prix Gold 2011 akan digelar di Alor Setar, Kedah, Selasa (3/5) hingga Ahad (8/5). Indonesia berharap bisa kembali meraih gelar dari nomor ganda campuran.

Tantowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir sukses memenangi gelar India Terbuka Super Series pada pekan lalu. Selain itu, Fran Kurniawan Teng/Pia Zebadiah Bernadeth berhasil melaju ke final. Peluang kembali meraih gelar pun terbuka lebar karena China absen dalam turnamen tersebut.

Pelatih ganda campuran, Richard Mainaky, mengatakan absennya pemain Cina akan membuat persaingan di Malaysia lebih merata. "Ini kesempatan baik bagi pemain muda saya," kata Richard.

Liliyana, yang pernah meraih dua kali gelar juara dunia bersama Nova Widianto, mengatakan bahwa kemenangan di India itu baru awal. Karena itu, Liliyana dan Tantowi tidak ingin lengah.

"Perjuangan saya dan Tantowi masih panjang. Yang penting tetap konsentrasi karena masih banyak pertandingan di depan," kata dia.

Tantowi/Liliyana akan menghadapi Dani Bawa Christanta/Yu Yan Vanessa Neo di babak pertama Malaysia Grand Prix Gold. Sementara itu, Muhammad Rijal/Debby Susanto yang melaju ke semifinal India Super Series terpaksa absen di Malaysia. Sebab, Rijal mengalami cedera pinggang. Tiga tunggal Indonesia, Taufik Hidayat, Simon Santoso, dan Alamsyah Yunus juga mundur dari ajang berhadiah 120 ribu Dolar AS ini.

Huntelaar Tampil Lawan Manchester United

Posted: 03 May 2011 01:29 PM PDT

SCHALKE – Klaas-Jan Huntelaar kembali memperkuat skuad Schalke 04 pada laga leg kedua semifinal Liga Champions, Kamis (5/5/2011). Striker asal Belanda tersebut sudah sembuh dari cedera lutut dan siap tampil di Old Trafford.

Kabar kembalinya Huntelaar menjadi kabar positif buat The Royal Blues. Schalke akan melakoni laga leg kedua dengan membawa kekalahan 2-0 di leg pertama yang digelar di Veltins Arena. Huntelaar akan menambah daya dobrak Schalke yang membutuhkan banyak gol.

 
Mantan striker AC Milan ini mengalami cedera lutut pada Februari lalu. Sebenarnya, The Hunter diperkirakan bisa sembuh hanya dalam dua musim. Namun, mantan striker Real Madrid ini ternyata harus istirahat hingga dua bulan.
 
Huntelaar bisa menjadi kartu as baru buat The Royal Blues melawan The Red Devils nanti. Schalke minimal harus menang 2-0, untuk menyamakan kedudukan dan memperpanjang asa untuk bisa melangkah ke final.
 
Sementara itu defender Benedikt Howedes juga kembali ke skuad utama Schalke. Bek dengan kemampuan rata-rata tersebut absen pada leg pertama dan saat melawan Bayern Munich. Huntelaar dan Howedes sudah berlatih penuh bersama skuad inti Schalke.

Judge orders work stopped on athletes' village

Posted: 02 May 2011 10:43 PM PDT

GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP): A judge in Mexico has ordered construction to be stopped on the athletes' village to house competitors during October's Pan American Games in Guadalajara.

Judge Armando Garcia handed down the decision Monday after inhabitants of the town of Zapopan claimed the construction of the village for 6,000 athletes, called the Villa Panamericana, would affect their drinking water supply.

The Pan American Games organizing committee is preparing an appeal to restart building work, director Carlos Andrade Garin said, adding that a 10-day construction delay would cause the cancellation of the games.

The event, which features athletes from North and South America, as well as Central America and the Caribbean, are scheduled to run from Oct. 14-30.

Governor Emilio Gonzalez Marquez, governor of Jalisco state where Guadalajara is located, said the legal action was motivated by political rivals opposed to the amount of money being spent on the event.

He said construction of the complex had to go ahead because housing athletes in hotels was not permitted.

"It has to be in the Villa Panamericana," Gonzalez Marquez said. "It's either there or nowhere."

New-look India confident of a strong showing

Posted: 02 May 2011 08:07 PM PDT

KUALA LUMPUR: India are without six of their senior players but coach Harinder Singh is still confident of a podium finish.

The six, all part of their Asian Games team last year, are penalty corner specialist Sandeep Singh, Sardara Singh, Prabhjot Tirkey, Rajpal Singh, Thusha Khandekar and Bharat Chikara.

Sardara and Sandeep are playing in the Belgium League while the others are injured.

"This is a good opportunity to try out other young players as our goal is the London Olympics next year," said Harinder.

"Like most teams here in Ipoh, we too are rebuilding our team and our immediate goal is to have a strong outfit for the Olympic qualifiers, which we will host next March.

"Although there are several new faces, we will be competitive and we will be among the top teams in Ipoh."

India and South Korea were declared joint champions last year after the final was abandoned due to heavy rain.

The Indians have named long-serving midfielder Arjun Halappa as skipper for the tournament.

"We have also recalled several players who were injured last year. So again it is a chance to see if they have regained their touch," said Harinder, who was assistant to Spaniard Jose Brasa in the senior team for the last three years.

Brasa's contract was not renewed after India finished third at the Guangzhou Asian Games.

Harinder said there would be "no major changes to our playing style".

"It will be the same as what we have been doing the last few years. For me, the main concern is to find the right players for our Olympic challenge," said Harinder.

"We will give our younger players a chance against the top class teams here in Ipoh and see if they can hack it at the international level.

"We have not set the team any targets but I believe we are capable of a strong showing."

India will open their campaign against former Asian champions South Korea on Thursday, followed by England the next day.

Kiper Bayern Butt Perpanjang Kontrak

Posted: 03 May 2011 11:57 AM PDT

Munich, Jerman (ANTARA News) - Penjaga gawang veteran Bayern Munich Hans-Jorg Butt, Selasa, menandatangani perpanjangan kontrak hingga 2012, sementara kiper cadangan Thomas Kraft akan meninggalkan klub itu pada akhir musim.

Bayern mengakui mereka sedang berupaya menggaet penjaga gawang Schalke 04 Manuel Neuer, yang mengatakan bahwa klub Royal Blues itu tidak akan memperpanjang kontraknya yang akan berakhir pada 2012, namun tetap berkeinginan untuk mempertahankan Butt satu musim lagi.

"Saya akan bekerja sama kerasnya untuk tempat saya di Bayerm, apakah ada atau tidak ada Manuel Neuer di sini," kata Butt, yang tampil memperkuat timnas Jerman untuk keempat kalinya pada Piala Dunia 2010.

"Saya menganggap dia sebagai penjaga gawang terbaik di Jerman, tapi pada saat ini, dia belum di sini," katanya.

Butt, yang akan berusia 37 tahun pada akhir bulan ini, semula akan mengakhiri kontraknya pada Juni, tapi dia mendapat tawaran perpanjangan kontrak atas permintaan pelatih baru Bayern Jupp Heynckes, yang datang dari Leverkusen pada akhir musim.

Butt dua kali digunakan sebagai pemain cadangan di Munich namun kembali mengambil alih posisinya sebagai penjaga gawang utama.

Dia diturunkan ke bangku cadangan pada Januari oleh mantan pelatih van Gaal saat Kraft diberikan kesempatan, namun Butt dikembalikan lagi ke posisinya bulan lalu setelah Van Gaal dipecat pada awal Maret lalu.

Kraft (22) merupakan kiper cadangan Bayern dilaporkan dalam pembicaraan dengan klub divisi dua Hertha Berlin, yang menang promosi ke Bundesliga pekan lalu.

Schalke dan Bayern dilaporkan sedang bernegosiasi mengenai transfer Neuer, dengan klub Schalke mengatakan menginginkan 20 juta euro untuk kiper tersebut sementara Bayern mengatakan hanya ingin membayar tidak lebih dari 14 juta euro.

Pemain yang mendapatkan dispensasi adalah Kurnia Mega, Dendi Santoso dan Yongky Ariwibowo dari Arema, Mahardiga Lasut, Oktovianus Maniani, Gunawan Dwi Cahyo dan Jajang Mulyana dari Sriwijaya FC. Lucas Madowen, Titus Bonai dan Stevie Bonsapia dari Persipura.

Mantan pelatih Sriwijaya FC itu menjelaskan, meski belum semua pemain tiba di Jakarta, pihaknya telah memberikan pemaparan kepada seluruh pemain terkait dengan program yang akan dijalankan.

"Kami telah menjelaskan apa saja yang harus dilaksanakan pemain selama menjalani tes maupun pre-pelatnas," katanya usai memaparkan program di Hotel Atlet Century Jakarta.

Pelatih asal Bandar Lampung itu saat ini juga menunggu beberapa pemain naturalasasi. Dengan bergabungnya pemain naturalisasi diharapkan bisa memacu semangat pemain yang menjalani pelatnas.

Setelah menjalani Diklat Pembentukan Karakter di Batujajar, Irfan Bachdim dan kawan-kawan akan menjalani pemusatan latihan di Batu Malang, Jawa Timur, sedangkan untuk pelatihan ke Austria baru akan dilaksanakan usai Lebaran mendatang.(*)

Percaturan Ferguson


EVRA (tengah) mengetuai sesi latihan United menjelang aksi bertemu Schalke 04 awal pagi esok.


MANCHESTER - Manchester United mahu melupakan seketika kekecewaan pada saingan liga domestik bagi memastikan tempat ke final Liga Juara-Juara buat kali ketiga dalam tempoh empat tahun.

United yang menang 2-0 pada aksi separuh akhir pertama di tempat lawan minggu lalu bakal menanti kunjungan kelab Jerman, Schalke 04 di Old Trafford awal pagi esok.

Skuad bimbingan Alex Ferguson itu tampak sebagai pilihan utama untuk mara ke final di Wembley pada 28 Mei ini.

Namun United yang turut memburu kejuaraan Liga Perdana England buat kali ke-19 dikejutkan dengan kekalahan 0-1 kepada pasukan di tangga ketiga, Arsenal pada Ahad lalu.

Menjelang aksi Chelsea, Ahad ini, Ferguson berkata, beliau akan merehatkan beberapa pemain utama ketika berdepan Schalke awal pagi esok.

"Saya akan buat beberapa perubahan. Saya akan bawa masuk semula Paul Scholes, Dimitar Berbatov dan Michael Owen dalam kesebelasan utama.

"Darren Fletcher akan turut beraksi tetapi kami tetap akan turunkan barisan pemain berpengalaman untuk posisi pertahanan.

"Dua perlawanan menentang Schalke dan Chelsea ini cukup penting. Jadi, saya memerlukan pemain yang cergas," kata Ferguson.

Beliau masih berkeyakinan yang pemain United dapat meneruskan rentak cemerlang pada kedua-dua aksi domestik dan Eropah.

"Kami sudah berada di kedudukan terbaik. Itulah yang kami harapkan sejak dari awal musim lagi.

"Kami sudah mara ke separuh akhir dan berkelebihan dengan dua gol serta akan berdepan Chelsea yang sama mata dalam saingan liga domestik tetapi kami berkelebihan beraksi di laman sendiri." - AFP

Selangor kembali temui rentak

Selangor kembali temui rentak


PEMAIN Selangor, Hardi Jaafar (kanan) mengasak pemain Kuala Lumpur, Muhd. Hazwan Rahman pada aksi Liga Super di Stadium Bola Sepak Kuala Lumpur, Cheras malam tadi.


JUARA bertahan, Selangor kembali menemui rentak kemenangan apabila berjaya menewaskan musuh setempat, Kuala Lumpur 3-1 pada aksi Liga Super di Stadium Bola Sepak Kuala Lumpur, Cheras malam tadi.

Dua jaringan Rudie Ramli dan satu gol daripada Safiq Rahim sudah cukup untuk membawa kebangkitan Selangor yang tewas 0-1 kepada Kelantan dan seri 1-1 dengan Terengganu pada dua aksi sebelum ini.

Namun Selangor masih kekal di tangga kedua menerusi perbezaan jaringan biarpun terikat 36 mata setelah pendahulu, Kelantan turut menewaskan Johor FC 1-0 di Pasir Gudang.

Pada aksi malam tadi, Selangor mendahului seawal minit ke-10 menerusi rembatan cantik Rudie yang gagal diselamatkan penjaga gol tuan rumah, Norazlan Razali.

Kuala Lumpur berjaya menyamakan kedudukan pada minit ke-30 selepas Ahmad Hazwan Bakri pantas menyambar hantaran Fahrul Razi Kamaruddin.

Enam minit kemudian, Kuala Lumpur berpeluang menambah jaringan tetapi rembatan kencang Syafiq Johari dari luar kotak penalti berjaya ditepis keluar penjaga gol Selangor, Saiful Amar Sudar.

Sebaik babak kedua bersambung, Selangor tidak menunggu lama apabila memperoleh gol kedua hasil sepakan percuma Safiq pada minit ke-46.

Kuala Lumpur terpaksa beraksi dengan 10 pemain pada minit ke-60 setelah penyerangnya, Azmi Sarmin dibuang padang akibat kad kuning kedua kerana melakukan terjahan lewat terhadap Azidan Sarudin.

Kelebihan tersebut dimanfaatkan sepenuhnya oleh Selangor apabila berjaya menambah gol ketiga pada minit ke-89 yang juga gol kedua peribadi Rudie menerusi satu serangan balas.

Selangor akan menanti kunjungan Johor FC pada aksi ke-18 di Stadium Shah Alam, Jumaat ini.

'Kami bukan suka-suka ubah'

Oleh WAN FAKHRUL BAKAR
fakhrul@kosmo.com.my


HAMIDIN mempengerusikan JKPT FAM.


"JAWATANKUASA saya bukan suka-suka nak ubah jadual liga. Kita rombak jadual kerana terpaksa. Jadual padat ini untuk memberi laluan kepada pasukan kebangsaan."

Demikian penjelasan Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Pertandingan Tempatan (JK- PT) Persatuan Bola Sepak Malaysia (FAM), Datuk Ha- midin Mohd. Amin berikutan rungutan beberapa pihak berhubung jadual padat Liga Super musim ini.

Sepanjang April, sembilan perlawanan telah berlangsung selang tiga atau empat hari dan keadaan sama berterusan bulan ini apabila tujuh lagi perlawanan dijadualkan berlangsung.

Bagaimanapun Hamidin berkata, perkara itu tidak dapat dielakkan lagi kerana ruang masa diperlukan jurulatih kebangsaan, K. Raja- gobal dan jurulatih skuad Olimpik, Ong Kim Swee bagi persiapan menghadapi Kelayakan Piala Dunia 2014 dan Kelayakan Sukan Olimpik 2012.

"Buat masa ini, tiada lagi perubahan akan dibuat tetapi kita tak tahu apa perkembangan yang akan berlaku selepas ini.

"Apa pun segalanya akan saya jelaskan lebih lanjut pada sesi taklimat JKPT, 11 Mei ini," jelas Hamidin.

Hamidin yang juga Naib Presiden FAM berkata demikian pada sesi taklimat bersama media yang diadakan Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Media dan Perhubungan Awam FAM, Datuk Subahan Kamal di Wisma FAM, Kelana Jaya petang semalam.

Turut hadir, Setiausaha Agung FAM, Datuk Azzud- din Ahmad, Rajagobal dan Kim Swee.

Pada sesi tersebut, Subahan yang juga Naib Presiden FAM serta pengurus skuad kebangsaan, mengumumkan jadual perlawanan persahabatan yang membabitkan skuad kebangsaan dan juga Olimpik sepanjang bulan depan.

Subahan berkata, skuad kebangsaan akan mengatur tiga perlawanan persahabatan sebagai persiapan meng- hadapi pusingan pertama Kelayakan Piala Dunia menentang Taiwan di laman sendiri pada 29 Jun dan tempat lawan 3 Julai depan.

"Perlawanan menentang Hong Kong di tempat lawan pada 3 Jun, menentang Myanmar di Kuala Lumpur (18 Jun) dan satu lagi perlawanan yang akan disahkan lawannya pada 24 Jun sebagai persiapan skuad kebangsaan sebelum menentang Taiwan.

"Bagi skuad Olimpik pula, mereka akan bertemu Kemboja di Phnom Penh (7 Jun) dan bertemu Qatar di Doha (13 Jun) sebagai persiapan menghadapi pusingan kedua Kelayakan Olimpik menentang Lebanon pada 19 dan 23 Jun depan," kata Subahan.

Andai skuad kebangsaan berjaya menyingkirkan Taiwan, mereka akan layak ke pusingan kedua Kelayakan Piala Dunia bertemu Singapura pada 23 dan 28 Julai depan.

Fergie Dukung Keputusan Pensiun Van der Sar

Fergie Dukung Keputusan Pensiun Van der Sar
Okdwitya Karina Sari - detiksport


Manchester - Tak sedikit yang menginginkan Edwin Van der Sar untuk menunda rencana pensiun. Namun Sir Alex Ferguson menilai kiper asal Belanda itu lebih baik pensiun selagi masih di puncak permainannya.

Van der Sar sudah jauh-jauh hari mengumumkan untuk menutup karier sepakbolanya setelah musim ini berakhir.

Akan tetapi dengan performanya yang masih impresif tak sedikit yang "merayu" kiper berusia 40 tahun ini untuk bertahan semusim lagi, termasuk dua rekan se-timnya Wayne Rooney dan Rio Ferdinand.

Ferguson percaya kalau Van der Sar semestinya tetap melaksanakan rencana pensiunnya itu. Ia tak ingin melihat anak buahnya itu gantung sepatu ketika penampilannya tengah merosot.

"Jika saya menasihai Edwin Van der Sar sekarang, saya akan bilang pensiun saja," ujar Sir Alex di Sky Sports.

"Dia masih berada di puncak performanya tapi kadang-kadang ketika pemain sudah berumur, faktor itu bisa mempengaruhi anda dengan tiba-tiba."

"Saya tidak ingin melihat Edwin berada di situasi demikian. Dia pantas berada di puncak tertinggi dan semoga dia memang demikian," harapnya.

Van der Sar berhasrat meraih trofi Liga Primer keempatnya sejak hijrah dari Fulham enam tahun lalu.

"Kariernya sungguh fantastis. Bukan hanya apa yang dilakukan di lapangan sepakbola. Ini juga tentang bagiamana melihat dia sebagai seorang profesional dan manusia," puji Ferguson.

Dia sungguh luar biasa. Di ruang ganti saat turun minum dan sebelum pertandingan, dia sungguh fantastis. Saran saya kepada dia adalah ini saatnya. Tak ada alasan untuk mengambil risiko semusim lagi dan mungkin saja peformanya bisa menurun taja,"simpul Fergie.

Masa Depan Montolivo Masih Menggantung

Masa Depan Montolivo Masih Menggantung
Mohammad Resha Pratama - detiksport


Florence - Ricardo Montolivo adalah pemain penting bagi Fiorentina. Namun masa depannya justru masih digantung La Viola dan memungkinkan si pemain pergi musim panas ini.

Kontrak Montolivo memang baru berakhir Juni 2012. Namun pesepakbola internasional Italia itu banyak diminati klub-klub Seri A dan Eropa, contohnya Inter Milan dan Juventus.

Jika memang Fiorentina tak ingin kehilangan salah satu bintangnya itu, manajemen harus menyodorkan kontrak baru. Apabila tidak maka 'Si Ungu' akan melepas Montolivo dengan cuma-cuma tahun depan atau menjualnya ke klub lain musim panas nanti.

Masalahnya adalah agen si pemain mengakui sampai saat ini belum ada pembicaraan dengan pihak klub soal kontrak baru. Ini pun turut mematahkan rumor yang berkembang jika pekan depan sudah ada diskusi dengan Montolivo.

"Tidak ada yang berubah dalam seminggu ini dan tidak ada hal baru yang musti dilaporkan," ujar agen pemain Giovanni Branchini seperti dilansir Football Italia.

"Kini kami menunggu Fiorentina mengumumkan soal itu. Namun saya tegaskan tidak ada berita baru dan tidak ada jadwal pertemuan," tutup Branchini.

Sejak bermukim di Artemio Franchi tahun 2005, gelandang 25 tahun itu sudah tampil 179 kali dan menyumbang 12 gol.

Carragher: Suarez Kunci Sukses Liverpool

Posted: 03 May 2011 04:35 PM PDT

LIVERPOOL, KOMPAS.com — Bek Liverpool, Jamie Carragher, menilai rekannya, penyerang Luiz Suarez, adalah salah satu orang paling berpengaruh dalam mengangkat performa tim pada lima pertandingan terakhir di Premier League.

Liverpool mencatatkan tiga kemenangan dan satu hasil imbang dalam lima pertandingan tersebut, dengan rekor memasukkan 13-3. Meski hanya menyumbang satu assist dan satu gol dalam empat laga itu, Suarez dinilai Carragher mengangkat kinerja pemain lain dengan karakter dan gaya bermainnya.

"Tentu, manajer selalu merupakan orang pertama dan layak mendapatkan penghargaan terbesar. Namun, untukku, Luis Suarez sangat istimewa," ujar Carragher.

"Kami semua berpikir setelah melihatnya dalam lima atau enam pertandingan bahwa ia adalah pemain yang menciptakan perbedaan besar untuk kami. Mungkin tak sebesar manajer, tetapi pengaruhnya besar," tambahnya. (MIR)

Ardiles: Jumpa Barca, MU dalam Masalah

Posted: 03 May 2011 04:15 PM PDT

BUENOS AIRES, KOMPAS.com — Legenda Argentina, Ossie Ardilles, mengatakan, jika Manchester United (MU) dan Barcelona bertemu di final Liga Champions, MU akan mengalami kesulitan besar. Menurutnya, alasannya adalah karena Barcelona dibela Lionel Messi.

MU dan Barcelona sama-sama masih berada di babak semifinal. Kedua kubu telah melakoni leg pertama. Sementara Barcelona menang 2-0 atas Real Madrid, MU menang 2-0 atas Schalke.

Meski leg kedua belum dimainkan, sejumlah kalangan menilai kedua kubu bakal melaju ke final, seperti pada final 2009 lalu, di mana saat itu MU kalah 0-2 akibat gol Samuel Eto'o dan Lionel Messi.

"Jika nantinya Manchester United melawan Barcelona di final yang akan digelar di Wembley, seperti diduga banyak orang, maka pertandingan akan sangat sulit untuk United karena Messi," ujar Ardiles.

"Barcelona adalah tim yang sangat bagus, luar biasa. Namun, dengan Messi, Barcelona istimewa, sesederhana itu. Messi membawa mereka ke level yang berbeda."

"Spanyol menjuarai Piala Dunia dan Barcelona memiliki begitu banyak pemain di tim nasional Spanyol, dan Messi adalah pemain terbaik Barcelona. Tak ada tim yang tahu cara menghentikannya karena ia tak terhentikan," tambahnya. (SCN)

Men's doubles quandary

Posted: 02 May 2011 10:06 AM PDT

2011/05/02
Reports by K.M. Boopathy


Rexy Mainaky (left) says Zakry Latif-Hoon Thien How have performed well in patches.

Rexy Mainaky (left) says Zakry Latif-Hoon Thien How have performed well in patches.

THE BA of Malaysia (BAM) and national coach Rexy Mainaky are still undecided on the second men's doubles to the World Championships as four pairs, including professionals Gan Teik Chai-Tan Bin Shen, are in the running for the event in London on Aug 8-14.

World No 4 Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong have confirmed their berth while Malaysia can name another pair from the top 150 bracket which means Teik Chai-Bin Shen (World No 16), Fairuzizuan Tazari-Ong Soon Hock (27), Zakry Latif-Hoon Thien How (32) and new combination Goh Wei Shem-Lim Khim Wah (97), are all in the running.


There's very little to separate Fairuz-Soon Hock and Zakry-Thien How while Wei Shem-Khim Wah have come into the equation as they have potential and are also the youngest at 23.

On merit, Teik Chai-Bin Shen should get the nod but it's BAM's decision and it may opt for a pair with the national squad.

"It's a hard decision as several factors have to be taken into consideration. Fairuz-Soon Hock and Zakry-Thien How have performed well in patches and the World Championships could be their ticket to better things. Also, we cannot ignore Wei Shem-Khim Wah's potential," said Rexy.


"Fairuz-Soon Hock have beaten some good pairs while Zakry-Thien How did well in the All England and cannot be completely overlooked.

"Wei Shem-Khim Wah are a good option for the future. They have only played two tournaments so it's too early to judge them. There is also the risk of them meeting a top four pair in the first or second round as their world ranking is very low.

"I have to sit with Tan Kim Her on his return from the India Open and also speak to the BAM management before identifying the second pair. As far as Teik Chai-Bin Shen are concerned, I leave it to BAM to make the call as they are independent players."


BAM secretary Ng Chin Chai, who is also the coaching and training committee chairman, has spoken about Wei Shem-Khim Wah's potential but it may prove premature to allow them to play in a major event after playing in just two tournaments.

Fairuz-Soon Hock and Zakry-Thien How have been inconsistent and their progress has been slow despite partnering each other for almost a year.

Teik Chai-Bin Shen have played in more tournaments and the fact that they lost in the second round of the World Championships in Paris last year could work against them.

The Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold may also be used as a yardstick as all four pairs are competing in the event which starts in Alor Star today. .

Sangakkara questions Tillakaratne fix claims

Posted: 02 May 2011 08:27 AM PDT

NEW DELHI: Sri Lanka's World Cup captain Kumar Sangakkara has challenged former skipper Hashan Tillakaratne to prove his recent allegations of rampant match-fixing, it was report yesterday.

"Hashan has played the game for years and he's captained Sri Lanka as well. So it's interesting to see what he has to say and if he has anything more than allegations," Sangakkara was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India news agency.

Tillakaratne, who played 83 tests and 200 one-dayers during a 15-year career, claimed last week that Sri Lanka players had been involved in match-fixing since 1992 and added that he was prepared to name some of them.


Sangakkara, captain of the Deccan Chargers franchise in the Indian Premier League, said Tillakaratne should work with the International Cricket Council if there was any basis to his allegations.

"It's dangerous to throw names around," said Sangakkara, who quit as captain after Sri Lanka's defeat to India in the World Cup final last month.

"He should work very closely with the ACSU (Anti-corruption and Security Unit) of the ICC and the home authorities to ensure that something's done about it if there is any foundation to those claims.


"But beyond that I don't think it makes any big sense to the players playing now."

Tillakaratne's comments came as the sport tries to emerge from last year's spot-fixing scandal involving some of the top Pakistan players.

He had stopped short of suggesting the World Cup final was rigged although he expressed reservations about the selection of the Sri Lankan team. -- AFP

Rossi Terkesan dengan Hasil Tes Ducati

Posted: 03 May 2011 02:57 PM PDT

ESTORIL, KOMPAS.com — Valentino Rossi dan Nicky Hayden memulai tugas baru yang lebih kompleks untuk meningkatkan performa Ducati. Setelah sepanjang akhir pekan lalu di GP Portugal mereka mencoba hal baru pada sistem elektronik, kini duo pebalap Ducati tersebut mempunyai pekerjaan baru untuk mengevaluasi sasis dan mesin baru Desmosedici, termasuk ban Bridgestone 2012, selama tes resmi di Sirkuit Estoril, Senin (2/5/2011).

Motor lebih sensitif terhadap perubahan yang dilakukan di bagian depan, yang membuatnya lebih mudah untuk pengesetan, yang bekerja lebih baik bagi saya.

-- Valentino Rossi

Ini adalah sebuah hari besar bagi tim Italia yang sedang dalam tekanan karena baru satu kali naik podium lewat Hayden, saat balapan basah di Jerez (seri kedua), tetapi belum bisa bertarung meraih kemenangan di trek kering. Beruntung bagi Ducati karena Rossi—yang mencatat hasil terbaik finis di urutan kelima pada balapan hari Minggu—memberikan semua perkembangan yang diraihnya.

Secara khusus, Rossi memilih perubahan sasis akhirnya membuat sebuah dampak yang bisa diprediksi pada perilaku front-end GP11. Dia terkesan dengan hasil tes tersebut.

"Ini adalah tes positif karena ada update baru yang segera lebih baik," ujar Rossi. "Motor lebih sensitif terhadap perubahan yang dilakukan di bagian depan, yang membuatnya lebih mudah untuk pengesetan, yang bekerja lebih baik bagi saya."

"Saya menyadari bahwa begitu naik motor dan kemudian, selama jam-jam berikut, kami secara konsisten berkembang."

Rossi kemungkinan akan menggunakan sasis baru pada seri berikutnya di Le Mans, Perancis, pada 13-15 Mei. Namun, adanya pembatasan penggunaan hanya enam mesin untuk satu musim membuat dia harus menunggu sampai mesinnya sudah tak mampu lagi sebelum menggunakan yang baru.

"Kami juga memiliki mesin dengan pengantar tenaga yang sedikit lebih halus yang saya sangat suka. Kita akan mulai menggunakannya ketika rencana rotasi memungkinkan," tegas Rossi, yang juga menyukai ban Bridgestone 2012. "Mereka (ban) terlihat sangat baik."

Dalam tes di Estoril ini, Rossi hanya mampu berada di peringkat lima dengan total lap yang diraihnya sebanyak 82. Juara dunia tujuh kali MotoGP ini masih terpaut 1,171 detik dari pebalap Gresini Honda, Marco Simoncelli. "The Doctor" mengakui, gap tersebut cukup mengganggu, tetapi dia tetap senang dengan langkah Ducati.

"Tentu saja pebalap lain juga membuat kemajuan besar, dan hal yang kurang positif dari tes ini adalah bahwa gap waktu dengan yang di depan," jelas juara dunia sembilan kali balap motor tersebut. "Meskipun demikian, segalanya sudah dikerjakan para teknisi Ducati dan itu berarti bahwa kami di jalur yang benar."

"Kami harus terus bekerja dan tes ini memberikan kami kepercayaan diri."

Rasa puas juga diungkapkan Hayden, yang terpaut 0,10 detik dari Rossi dan berada di urutan sembilan.

"Kami membaik karena saya secara konsisten bisa lebih cepat dibandingkan dengan saat kualifikasi. Tetapi, tampaknya pebalap lain juga meningkat," ujar pebalap Amerika Serikat tersebut. "Saya membuat waktu terbaik dengan ban 2012 sehingga Bridgestone membuat langkah bagus di sana."

Juara dunia 2006 juga merasakan update sasis dan mesin berada di jalur yang benar. Namun, tampaknya belum ada sebuah perubahan yang besar.

Haye Yakin Tidurkan Wladimir

Posted: 03 May 2011 03:02 AM PDT

MANCHESTER - Almarhum Sir Henry Cooper pernah memukul KO Muhammad Ali pada ronde empat. Tak heran, David Haye ingin mengikuti jejak sang idola dengan menidurkan Wladimir Klitschko.
 
Seperti diketahui, Cooper baru saja meninggal dunia pada usia 78 tahun, kemarin. Petinju legenda dari Inggris itu meninggal karena sakit yang dideritanya. Banyak hal yang bisa dikenang dari Cooper, salah satunya momen ketika dia mengalahkan Ali.
 
Prestasi ini yang akan coba ditiru oleh Haye. Juara kelas berat versi WBA tersebut ingin meniru sang idola dengan mengalahkan Wladimir, dalam pertarungan yang akan berlangsung di Hamburg, 2 Juli mendatang.
 
"Semua orang yang pernah bertemu Henry Cooper akan mengatakan dia adalah orang yang luar biasa. Semua orang akan merasa kehilangannya," demikian komentar Haye. "Jika saya bisa meniru pukulan Cooper melawan Wladimir, maka saya akan sangat bahagia."
 
Haye seperti sama sekali tidak gentar bermain di Hamburg, yang notabene merupakan kandang dari Wladimir. Dia berharap banyak penonton dari Inggris yang datang. Meski penonton akan sedikit, namun Haye memprediksikan suara mereka akan sangat kencang."
 
"Wladimir tidak pernah merasakan sebuah atmosfir yang seperti ini sepanjang kariernya. Dia adalah seorang petarung yang jago kandang. Meski hanya didukung 25 persen pendukung dari Inggris, namun saya yakin mereka akan tetap membuat suara yang keras," tandasnya dilansir Boxing Scene, Selasa (3/5/2011).

Kematian Osama Tak Pengaruhi Pengamanan Olimpiade

Posted: 03 May 2011 02:30 AM PDT

DOHA – Kematian pemimpin Al Qaeda Osama Bin Laden tidak akan mempengaruhi keamanan Olimpiade 2012 di London. Penegasan itu disampaikan langsung oleh Presiden Komite Olimpiade Internasional (IOC) Jacques Rogge.

Menurutnya strategi keamanan IOC tidak akan berubah, seperti yang diterapkan sejak pembunuhan 11 atlet dan pelatih Israel pada Olimpiade 1972 di Munich. Penjagaan ketat tetap akan diterapkan di London.

"Masalah keamanan selalu menjadi fokus kami," ujar Rogge saat menghadiri kongres IOC ke-9 di Doha, seperti dikutip Sportfeature, Selasa (3/5/2011)."Sejak peristiwa Munich, kam memprioritaskan masalah itu. Tapi sejauh ini, mengenai peningkatan keamanan, itu tergantung prespektif pemerintah dan pihak yang berwenang."

Kekhawatiran keamanan menjelang Olimpiade cukup beralasan mengingat London pernah diguncang aksi teror pada Juli 2005 tak lama setelah London terpilih sebagai tuan rumah Olimpiade 2012, di mana 52 orang tewas saat bom meledak di jaringan transportasi kota.

Untuk menjaga keamanan selama Olimpiade, 9 ribu aparat akan diturunkan, dan diperkirakan akan menelan biaya pengamanan mencapai 700 juta pound. Kebijakan ini sejalan dengan sikap pemerintah Inggris yang berjanji memberikan perhatian tinggi untuk mengatasi ancaman teror selama Olimpiade.

"Keamanan saat even berlangsung menjadi tugas otoritas lokal, dan kami tidak meragukan mereka akan bertanggungjawab penuh terhadap tugas itu. Even ini adalah sebuah perayaan perdamaian. Kami menjunjung semangat itu," ujar Rogge.

Pengadil silap lagi - Ferguson

Posted: 02 May 2011 03:04 PM PDT

Sukan

pix_gal0
SEKALI lagi, Sir Alex Ferguson menyalahkan mutu pengadilan buruk sebagai punca kekalahan 1-0 Manchester United kepada Arsenal yang membuka luas perebutan kejuaraan Liga Perdana Inggeris.

Pengurus United itu percaya pengadil Chris Foy silap apabila tidak menghadiahkan sepakan penalti pada minit ke-88 berikutan kekasaran Gael Clichy terhadap Michael Owen, walaupun turut mengakui Arsenal juga dinafikan sepakan penalti apabila Nemanja Vidic menggunakan tangan ketika menampan hantaran lintang Theo Walcott pada babak pertama.

Selepas menyaksikan Chelsea merapatkan jurang kepada hanya tiga mata 24 jam sebelum itu apabila menang 2-1 ke atas Tottenham, Ferguson kini memerah kepala untuk merangka agenda tertentu menjelang kunjungan The Blues ke Old Trafford, Ahad ini bagi perlawanan penentuan kejuaraan. Perebutan kejuaraan memihak kepada Chelsea 11 bulan lalu apabila Didier Drogba menjaringkan gol kemenangan walaupun berada dalam kedudukan ofsaid dan tidak dapat tidak, Ferguson mahu mengelakkan perkara sama berlaku.

"Ia perlawanan besar yang mana keputusan pengadil perlawanan tidak tepat," kata Ferguson. "Ia seimbang daripada segi kedua-dua pasukan layak mendapat sepakan penalti tetapi saya sukar untuk melihatnya (bola terkena tangan Vidic) tetapi Clichy tahu kesilapannya, malah dia mengangkat tangan kerana rasa bersalah.

"Kini ia memberi Chelsea peluang besar dan itu yang berlaku apabila anda mendapat keputusan seperti ini. Mereka (Chelsea) memperolehnya di Old Trafford musim lalu dan itu yang saya bimbangkan.

Chong Wei perlu bebas daripada sebarang masalah untuk tempoh setahun ini - Kok Chi

JANGAN ganggu Lee Chong Wei untuk tempoh setahun ini!

Itulah harapan disuarakan Setiausaha Kehormat Majlis Olimpik Malaysia (MOM), Datuk Sieh Kok Chi yang mahu pemain nombor satu dunia itu memberikan tumpuan penuh sehingga Sukan Olimpik London 2012 tanpa dibelenggu sebarang kontroversi berkaitan bekas jurulatihnya, Datuk Misbun Sidek.

"Saya tidak rasa mereka berdua bermusuh (antara Chong Wei dan Misbun), saya cadangkan mereka berdua diberikan masa untuk menyelesaikan masalah itu sendiri. "Buat masa ini, kita bagi dia (Chong Wei) kebebasan dan tunggu sehingga habis Olimpik," katanya selepas menyaksikan kejayaan jaguh negara dari Bukit Mertajam itu merangkul gelaran juara Siri Super Terbuka India selepas mengalahkan Peter Gade Christensen 21-12, 12-21, 21-15, kelmarin.

Mengulas kemenangan Siri Super kali ketiga itu, Kok Chi berkata, Chong Wei perlu mengekalkan momentum permainan cemerlang yang dipamerkan sehingga London 2012 nanti dan memastikan dia tidak dilanda sebarang kecederaan yang boleh menggugat prestasi permainannya.

"Sasarannya (Chong Wei) mestilah untuk Olimpik dan dia tidak boleh lupakan objektif utama iaitu merangkul emas di London nanti. Jika ditakdirkan dia hanya memperoleh pingat perak, ia satu kegagalan buat dirinya.

"Chong Wei harus menerapkan keyakinan diri yang tinggi untuk menang dan tidak mudah mengaku kalah apabila bertemu musuh ketat seperti Lin Dan. Apa yang penting, dia perlu bijak menjaga diri supaya tidak cedera dan terganggu dengan sebarang masalah yang boleh menjejaskan mutu permainannya," katanya.
