Norrie's hopes for the ATP final are disappointed after the defeat at the Paris Masters

The British number 1 lost his chance of scoring the points necessary to finish in the top eight in Turin when he was beaten by Taylor Fritz in the third round of the Indoor Paris Open. (Author: Gardener)

Cam Norrie's unlikely late offer to advance to the AT P Finals looks as good as over, barring miraculous math or unforeseen injuries to others. The British number 1 lost his chance of scoring the points necessary to finish in the top eight in Turin when he was beaten by Taylor Fritz in the third round of the Indoor Paris Open. An inspired performance by the American saw him save two second set points before prevailing 6-3, 7-6, with Norrie's legs starting to feel the strain of years of exertion. Norrie's only small chance now would be rival Hubert Hurkacz losing the quarter-finals on Friday - and then winning the remaining tournament in Stockholm next week. Two double mistakes by Norrie in the sixth game gave Fritz the decisive break and the American kept the nerve to end the set. Norrie saved two breakpoints in the seventh game of the second set to stay ahead, then forged in the 10th. "Cam and I have played a lot and it's always a fight when we play - except the last time he played me did pretty badly, "said Fritz in an interview after the game. “He's always so hard to beat and I got out of here and played my best tennis and it feels great. Norrie faces a four-way battle for the remaining two places in the eight-man tournament at the end of the season in Turin this month. Jannik Skinner, Hubert Hurkacz and Casper Ruud are also in the running and the British No. 1 sits farthest back in the quartet. With 1,000 points left to play in the French capital, it was important to beat Fritz. But Norrie will have to win the Stockholm Open next week and rely on Hurkacz to lose his quarter-final game against Australian James Duckworth on Friday. The 26-year-old received a small boost when Skinner failed to finish in the last 16 in Paris after being beaten by Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz on Wednesday but his chance to jump into a qualifying spot was wasted. Norrie's last rival, Norway's Rudd, reached the round of 16 with Norrie and Hurkacz, but has yet to play his match against Marcos Giron. Fritz will next face Djokovic after the world number 1 received a walkover when round of 16 opponent Gael Monfils was forced to resign with a leg injury. Djokovic has won all four of his games so far, two in 2019 and two this year, and Fritz added: “Of course it's very difficult to play Novak. It will be my third time this year, so hopefully this time it will be different. '

Aberdeen Revival continues

Although they couldn't take a memorable win at Ibrox, rebuilt Aberdeen showed that they are starting to click. Two goals within 15 minutes that (Author: Gardener)

Although they couldn't take a memorable win at Ibrox, rebuilt Aberdeen showed that they are starting to click. With two goals within 15 minutes, the Reds left leaders Rangers stunned and stunned. It took a dubious penalty decision 10 minutes before the end to deny the Reds in Glasgow the three points they deserved. That an injured Dons team left Ibrox frustrated and disappointed at one point is a clear indication that the Dons are now moving in the right direction. If Aberdeen can do that at Ibrox against the defending champions, they will now have to do the same with the other teams in the Premiership to move up the table. The draw with the leaders will bring a huge boost in confidence and give fans hope of what the team that Stephen Glass built up this summer can achieve. Any signs that the new-looking dons were reaching their potential and solidifying had previously been stifled by harmful and costly single mistakes. It's starting to pay off as the Reds backed Hibs' loss with a strong performance in Glasgow. Ultimately, a controversial penalty decision that was converted 10 minutes before the end denied the Reds three points. Aberdeen shows that they aim to pull themselves back to the table and deliver the positive pre-season attitude. This was a game that highlighted the importance of signing former Celtic skipper Scott Brown. Brown ran the backline and was a calm mind giving directions and advice in the midst of the Ibrox Maelstrom. Skipper Brown stepped out of the defensive line at the right time to interrupt attacks and initiate advances. Driven by an exuberant Brown, Aberdeen were cheered, energized and put pressure on the Rangers, winning 50-50 balls. The task that Aberdeen faced with a makeshift defense was enormous - it was compounded by the emotional potency of the night. The Rangers were determined to claim a 1-0 win at Ibrox in December 2018 on the night they sought to pay tribute to Scottish legend and former manager Walter Smith, who passed away at the age of 73. The Rangers, who are impressive at home, have been unbeaten in their last 24 Premiership games at Ibrox with 22 wins and two draws. Aberdeen was so close to finishing this run. The Rangers had only conceded seven goals in these 24 games. The Dons hit two past them in the first 15 minutes to stun the defending champion. Glass suffered a triple setback in defense prior to the trip to Ibrox as Calvin Ramsay, Jack MacKenzie and Declan Gallagher were all excluded. All three will also miss the matches against Hearts and Motherwell before the international break. Aberdeen went into a five-man chain with three center-backs when he was not in possession of the ball. Funso Ojo on the right and Dean Campbell on the left fell back to help center-backs David Bates, Scott Brown and Ross McCrorie. Aberdeen have shown they have the depth they need to deal with the injury-related absence from key defenders. The absence of right-back Ramsay and left-back MacKenzie brought another problem beyond the defense. The two young full-backs had all made templates for Aberdeen's previous five goals - with Ramsay four and MacKenzie one. Who would move forward and provide the ammunition for Christian Ramirez and the other threats of attack? The answer within the first quarter of an hour was Ryan Hedges and Dylan McGeouch, assisting Ramirez and Brown. Rangers and Ibrox mourned the death of club-sized Smith. Aberdeen had scored no goal, lost four and drew one on each of their last five league visits to Ibrox. It only took 10 minutes to end that drought after Lundstram lost possession. Hayes found Campbell, with the makeshift left-back matching Hedges. The Dons delivered another blow in the 16th minute when Brown broke away from Marker James Tavernier to take a McGeouch corner kick. But they hit back from a free kick in the 20th minute when Alfredo Morelos hit a Tavernier delivery man 15 yards away and steered a header past Lewis. Rangers equalized in the 80th minute when Bates and substitute Fashion Sakala got together. Aberdeen failed to hold the victory but got away with a morale boosting draw.

Napoli and AC Milan are ahead, while Roma under Jose Mourinho. slide down

Atalanta and Lazio team up while Cagliari remains rooted (Author: Gardener)

We have reached the November international break and with 12 rounds played (you can follow all the Serie A action on Paramount +) Napoli and AC Milan are still in the lead with 32 points out of a possible 36. This puts Luciano Spalletti and Stefano Pioli's men seven points ahead of closest rivals Inter Milan in third place, which is a comfortable cushion over Simone Inzaghi's Italian champions, especially since the Milanese rival just drew and deprived Inter of their best opportunity to win some Regain points. Jose Mourinho's Roma have started falling behind after consecutive defeats while Juventus are still struggling to make their way into the UEFA Champions League. After a 1-0 win against the defeated Salernitana and a 1-1 draw against the up-and-coming Hellas Verona, the Partenopei remain at the top due to their superior goal difference to their title rivals Milan. However, after the international break, the team will face Inter, Lazio and Atalanta in the next five Serie A games, which will be a tough test for these qualifications. It's a historic start for Milan, who have picked up more points from their first 12 games than ever before. A 2-1 win against Roma and a 1-1 draw with fierce opponents Inter made the Rossoneri knock on the door to the undisputed top spot and the next five games in the Italian premier league offer a great opportunity to overtake Napoli as seventh Fiorentina are currently the only team in the top 12 of the table to face Napoli next, is a great opportunity for Inzaghi's men to make up some ground in the first two. In a 2-2 draw against Lazio and a 2-1 win against the basement boys Cagliari, Gian Piero Gasperini's men have their eyes on the top three as there are only three points. Maurizio Sarri's side held Atalanta in a tie before overtaking Salernitana and the Biancocelesti are now trying to get into the top three, albeit by a point further back than the Bergamo team. Juve and Napoli could have big consequences in their next two Serie A games. Mourinho's Giallorossi is currently in free fall with just one win from their last seven games in all competitions and four losses during that period. In theory, however, he should have time to set up the ship with the games against Genoa, Turin and Bologna before Inter come to town. A 3-0 from Spezia was made up by a narrow loss to Juve and it is enough to keep Vincenzo Italiano's side in a healthy position considering where they were last season. A 2-1 loss to Verona meant the Fiorentina became a must for Massimiliano Allegri's men and although it was close, they almost made it. Victories over the fighting pair of Cagliari and Sampdoria have catapulted Sinisa Mihajlovic's forces into the top half and the Rossoblu will be confident that they will build on that next against Venezia and Spezia. Verona could be the surprise of the season with a win over Juve and a draw with Napoli, Igor Tudor's side continue to rise impressively and Giovanni Simeone is suddenly one of the best strikers in Italy with nine goals after scoring seven in his last four had appearances. A 2-1 win against Sassuolo and a 2-2 draw against Genoa keep Gli Azzurri on the rise and just outside the top half of the table. A 3-0 win against Sampdoria seemed to be a cornerstone for Toro, but a 0-1 loss against Spezia brings them straight back to mediocrity, with no real consistency at the moment. Successive defeats against Empoli and then Udinese undermined the good work of the victories over Venezia and Juve, so back to the drawing board. A logical 2-2 loss to Inter was offset by a 3-2 win against Sassuolo, but it's still not quite the stubborn form they showed at the start of the season. A disappointing goalless draw against teammates Genoa CFC was followed by a massive 3-2 win over Roma, which will hopefully give Paolo Zanetti's men new impetus after a patchy run. Thiago Motta's men reacted to the 3-0 defeat against Fiorentina with a 1-0 win against Turin and at the moment it's just enough to stay afloat. However, Atalanta, Inter and Roma will be a challenge. Andriy Shevchenko has replaced Davide Ballardini as coach after drawing against Venezia and Empoli. The Ukrainian returned to Italy, where he made a name for himself with Milan. The odds that Roberto D'Aversa's time at Blucerchiati is over must be high after a 3-0 loss to Turin and a 2-1 loss to Bologna - they're not going anywhere fast. A narrow 1-0 loss to Napoli was respectable, but a 3-0 loss to Lazio was another big blow and the next two games against Sampdoria and Cagliari are must-see affairs. After a 2-0 defeat by Bologna and a 2-1 defeat by Atalanta, it seems like a matter of time before the Sardinians are replaced by Walter Mazzarri, who has now suffered four defeats in a row.

Will Poulter on Dopesick, Marvel, and Mental Health

Starring in a new miniseries about America's opioid crisis, the actor talks about his role in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie, bullying, and why he's not an activist (Author: Gardener)

Will Poulter: "I've learned the importance of taking care of myself between roles" (Photo: Roy Rochlin / WireImage) Will Poulter is one of those actors who can easily look mean. It's the eyebrows. Ever since he appeared on our screens as Lee Carter, the worst-behaved boy at school in Son of Rambow (2007), and raised those high arches as a freshly baked 14-year-old, he's been the Brit for naughty, downright ugly. Early roles as the haughty Eustace Scrubb in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and the bellicose Gally in The Maze Runner reinforced this image, and more recent ones like that of a racist cop in Detroit (2017) did nothing to drive it away . If we speak, Poulter has just been announced as the newest member of the Marvel crew. In the next Guardians of the Galaxy film, he will play Adam Warlock, a colonel who was described in the previous film as "capable of destroying the Guardians". Plus ça change. However, personally he wears a very fluffy pink sweater with an invisible creature on it (he says it reminds him of Pax, a demon in Bandersnatch, the Black Mirror interactive episode he did in 2018) Poulter, 28, is incredibly polite and serious. full of talk about social justice and responsibility. His Twitter and Instagram profiles are full of good causes (he only checks in to promote things after hiring a litany of name-calling in Bandersnatch). “I am aware of the limits of my impact as an actor. I don't do the real work. But the least I can do is make sure that my decisions as an actor are accountable. And hopefully in return I can shed some light on some of the real world changes that are being made. ”As we talk, I realize that Poulter has the ability to face as many saints as sinners. Perhaps that's what makes him so perfect for Dopesick, an equally serious look at the origins of the American opioid crisis. He plays Billy, a salesman for Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, who is currently involved in various real-life legal disputes in US courts. In 2019 alone, 50,000 people died of opioid-related overdoses in America, and opioids were responsible for nearly 500,000 fatal overdoses between 1999 and 2019. Will Poulter in We're the Millers, who earned him a Bafta Rising Star Award (Photo: Warner Bros / SEAC) In the show, which is cleverly produced and the content is shocking as it tells the story of American prescription drug addiction from different perspectives investigating, we meet Purdue employees just as the company is launching the new drug as non-addictive and tough -selling to doctors in mining communities where the labor-intensive professional environment creates an immediate need. At first, he seems genuinely evangelical about the drug's harmlessness and passionately advocates it to the cautious Doctor Finnix (an always lovable Michael Keaton). Then it gets a little darker. “I think he has good intentions from the start. But the whole thing just gets too seductive. And that was hard to play. Billy is supposed to be a mix of real Purdue employees; The show is based on the non-fiction book Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company that Addicted America by journalist Beth Macy. They were shooting in Virginia, one of the areas originally targeted by Purdue and now one of the hardest hit areas by the drug epidemic. “It was pretty emotional on set,” says Poulter. This of course gives you an additional sense of responsibility. To live up to history and get things right. ”Poulter was born in Hammersmith, west London, and grew up where he was a student at Harrodian School (fee is £ 6,000 per semester plus), also the alma mater by Robert Pattinson and Jack Whitehall. For the past several years, Poulter has been promoting antibullyingpro.com, an online resource devoted to reversing the bullying culture in UK schools. Has he ever experienced bullying at Harrodian himself? "Yes. I think everyone did that, you know?" But in 2018 a survey showed that over half of teenagers in UK schools were bullied in the past year. "Activist or not, Poulter does this a lot and provides statistics to back up his claims. (I'm checking the bullying statistics. It's correct.) He's in his element and thanks me for mentioning it. Will Poulter in Dopesick (Photo: Antony Platt / Hulu) "Me I feel passionate about it. I think part of the reason there is still a lot of bullying going on is this pretty archaic approach to it. People sometimes think of it as part of growing up, like it's character building stuff. And that's such a worrying one Way of looking at it. Not every school actively takes action to combat bullying cultures ... And I think male privileges protect us from certain things. ”His desire to do good in the world may come from his family. His mother was a nurse and his father is a professor of preventive cardiovascular medicine at Imperial College; one sister works at a school for children with special needs, another currently runs a Covid vaccination clinic. At 14, he starred in Son of Rambow and was 17 when he appeared in the Narnia film. He's pretty much worked since then, including winning a 2013 Bafta Rising Star Award for We're the Millers and starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant. Does he ever regret having acted professionally at such a young age? I think the big one didn't go on tour to Japan with the Narnia crew because I was worried about screwing up my GCSE mocks. And now I think, of course I should have left, but at the time it felt difficult to balance work and education. "I guess at the time I wasn't sure this was going to be my career." So, his biggest regret in life is studying hard for his GCSE mocks? He owns a house in East London where he spent a lot of time, exercising, reading (he likes the novelist and mental health writer Matt Haig: "His books have helped me a lot") and listening to music in his little garden. Will Poulter (Photo: Shannon Finney / Getty) "Acting can be mental health," he says. “I learned the importance of taking care of myself between roles. I think sometimes you spend a lot of time and attention developing the personalities associated with each character and not necessarily enough time for yourself as the person who lives between them. ”That said, Poulter is beaming at the announcement from Adam Warlock, however, does not address the debate about the evolution of Warlock, Goodie, or Baddie. I wonder if, like the Dopesick script, Marvel will take advantage of Poulter's ability to cross that line between good and bad, to be morally ambiguous. "I think I prefer to play treats," says Poulter after some thought. Perhaps that is a clue to both the future of Warlock and Poulter's success in playing people we would otherwise find objectionable.

Stör was beaten up for posing with Greta Thunberg but refusing to join the climate alliance

NICOLA STURGEON and her SNP-led Scottish government have been heavily attacked for posing for a photo with Greta Thunberg at COP26 but refusing to join a major climate alliance aimed at phasing out fossil fuels. (Author: Gardener)

Two weeks ago, the First Minister said that unlimited fossil fuel extraction was incompatible with Scotland's climate commitments and insisted that the focus would be on "the fastest possible just transition for the oil and gas sector". But despite these comments, the environmental protection group claimed that the Scottish government had "turned down" the opportunity to join a new Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance that was unveiled at the conference this afternoon (Thursday). The Scottish panel said the country's ministers had previously discussed the alliance in question with their Danish counterparts. Denmark, along with Costa Rica, is a founding member of the group committed to moving away from oil and gas. During COP26, Nicola Sturgeon was photographed with leading climate activist Greta Thunberg and said at a meeting last week, "I promise you that we will accelerate the transition from fossil fuels as far and as quickly as possible". Days ago, the First Minister warned major emitters that they had to "top up" and also addressed Scotland's "Climate Justice Fund" to help countries cope with the effects of climate change. But Friends of the Earth Scotland has become furious that their government "was unwilling to join this new alliance even though fossil fuel burning is the main cause of the climate crisis." The Scottish Director of Friends of the Earth, Dr to meet and stand up to be photographed with Greta Thunberg, but at some point her fine rhetoric has to be translated into a commitment to stop oil and gas production that is driving the climate crisis Stop supporting oil and gas exploration. "He added," Rather than side with oil and gas companies, the Scottish government needs to ensure that people and communities working in oil and gas are at the heart of planning a fair and quickly phasing out fossil fuels, while expanding renewable energies to reduce human growth creating earthy green jobs worrying that many large oil and gas producing countries are unwilling to sign up. “When you're in a hole, you have to stop digging.” To meet the 1.5C target, we need to keep coal, oil and gas safely in the ground. ”On October 25, Ms. Sturgeon had said that Scottish government would no longer support unlimited production of hydrocarbons, including oil and gas. A press release stated that the Scottish government and the Scottish Green Agreement “take the position that countries around the world - including the UK - do unlimited Unable to continue producing hydrocarbons if the Paris Agreement targets are met. DON'T MISS "The focus now will be on achieving the fastest possible equitable transition for the oil and gas sector - one that creates jobs and economic benefits, ours Energy security guaranteed and our climate fair. "Obligations". Speaking to students at Strathclyde University on the same day, the First Minister said: "We must accept that unlimited hydrocarbon recovery is not in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement." The transition to net zero can a nd will be many possibilities for economic and ecological progress.

Sheffield United need to show they have learned as a contract problem simmers beneath the surface

Sheffield United are at risk of failing to learn a lesson from relegation from the Premier League as an unresolved contractual problem behind the scenes became a distraction. (Author: Gardener)

With the January transfer window fast approaching when those in the final stages of their agreements can have talks with non-English clubs, a large part of Slavisa Jokanovic's squad will leave Bramall Lane at the end of the season. While the situation gives United an opportunity to undertake a major re-profiling next summer, it also threatens to create a problem similar to the one they faced in John Lundstram's last term in the closing stages of his deal. The stalemate had a detrimental effect on the player's relationship with Jokanovic's predecessor, Chris Wilder, who wanted to raise money to fund an offer for Reading's John Swift or Jesse Lingard after being on a possible loan long before the West Ham kidnapping the Manchester United midfielder had spoken to The Switch. After Jokanovic expressed his desire to sign two wingers and a sustaining midfielder when the market reopens, he clearly believes United needs a refresher after entering the international break 18th on the championship table. While some of those who will leave will be redundant, others, including midfielder Ben Osborn, will likely be part of the Serb's plans. Like Osborn, Lys Mousset, Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick, Chris Basham and Adlene Guedioura face an uncertain future in South Yorkshire. Jack Robinson and Luke Freeman will also go on frees, while loanee players Morgan Gibbs-White, Ben Davies, Robin Olsen and Conor Hourihane will return to their parent clubs at the end of the campaign unless they are permanently bought. "The way business works now, very often when someone goes for free, their value will very often go into things like wages or contract fees," he told The Star. Mousset has been linked to moving to Russia prior to Jokanovic's appointment in May. But the striker, a £ 10m purchase from Bournemouth AFC, has since shown signs of regaining his form and fitness - he scored three goals in six games after recovering from a hamstring injury.
