She struck out nine.“Megan pitched a very good game, just made a few mistakes early in the game, and it cost us,” Marshfield coach Mike Voss said. “Their pitcher did a good job keeping us off balance hitting.

Construction of the R400-million (US$56.4-million) facility is 99% complete and should be fully completed before the opening.Spokesperson Linette Imrie said contractors are focusing on the final touches ahead of the opening and the tenants will move into their new retail spaces in anticipation of the launch. “Tenants need to occupy their space before 27 April,” Imrie said.Corné Claasens, who manages leasing, said: “We’re almost finished with construction. Everything will be in place.”The mall, developed and owned by private company New Africa Developments, is 38 000m² and built on 18ha land. Construction began in the third quarter of 2010.Besides retail stores, some as big as 4 000m2 , it also boasts 1 600 parking bays and other facilities for public transport.Some high-class retailers and major banks have already been confirmed as tenants, including Pick n Pay, Game, Ellerines, Sterns, Edgars and Super Spar.Banks Capitec, Standard Bank, FNB, Nedbank and African Bank will soon occupy their facilities. About 90 shops are confirmed to have tenants.The high-security mall creates an opportunity for these businesses to grow their market base from a perspective that consumers previously had to travel to neighbouring towns to access them. Temba and the neighbouring Hammanskraal boast a combined population of about 400 000.New Africa Developments, a company formed in 1991, has made significant inroads in constructing mega shopping centres in previously disadvantaged areas. Its range of retail property includes scores of centres in Mpumalanga, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.Big franchise opportunitiesNo less than 15 well-established businesses have opened up for franchising in Jubilee Mall – these include Nando’s, Spur, King Pie, Maxis, Scooters Pizza and Steers.Neels Meiring from King Pie confirmed that their franchise has already been snatched up by a businessman from Centurion.Meiring believes the franchisee will make high returns from the investment. “We received a lot of applications for it, an indication that it will be a very good mall.”He said the mall’s location puts it in a good place to make King Pie and other retails lucrative businesses. “The mall captures a niche market. Currently people have to travel far for a mall.”Jobs galoreJubilee Mall is one of the projects meant to improve Temba’s public infrastructure. Its other direct impact will be the creation of jobs.Youngsters from Temba and Hammanskraal are guaranteed to find formal employment in the mall. Developers estimate that about 2 500 jobs will open up when trade is in full swing.About 400 jobs are confirmed to have been created during the construction period.Township market for mallsUpmarket shopping centres or malls, as they are more commonly known, are thriving in South African townships – areas which were underdeveloped by the former apartheid government.At 65 000 m2 , the R650-million ($92-million) Maponya Mall in Soweto is the largest retail hub in South Africa.Cape Town’s Gugulethu township got its first mall in 2009. The Gugulethu Square was completed at an investment of R350-million ($49.4-million) by local businessman Mzoli Ngcawuzele.Consumers from townships have gained massive buying power over the last few years, with the number of shoppers who turn out at Maponya Mall at any given weekend bearing testimony to this.

The world’s,Roger Federer (left) and Sania Mirza during their mixed doubles match of the IPTL league in delhi.It was a rally that lasted 16 shots. Each laden with power, precision and sublime skill and each cheered lustily by a 15,000-strong raucous crowd at the Indira Gandhi Stadium in Delhi. The world’s two best sporting gladiators, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, were doing everything to enthral and entertain, to compete and win. It was competitiveness of the very highest pedigree, rubbishing all scorn that the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) is no more than exhibition tennis masquerading as a league. That not a soul had moved till 11.20 p.m. braving the chill outside was proof that the IPTL, world tennis’ newest kid on the block, is here to stay.Laden with innovation and backed by broadcast and corporate support from the likes of Star and Coca-Cola, the inaugural season has been a success by every yardstick. But can it be sustained and can the league be made economically viable in the long term? Can team owners who are likely to have paid $4-5 million as licensing fee to own a franchise expect to get their money back? Are players’ salaries, estimated to be a total of $ 15-million plus, justified? Finally, can Mahesh Bhupathi and his team well and truly ‘break the code’? For the longest time tennis has remained immune to change. While embracing baseline technology and other such technical advancement, the very kernel of the sport has remained unchanged. Most matches continue to be played for five or three sets, Davis Cup encounters are still played over three days, the number of games won by players has little consequence in the larger scheme of things and there is never a time limit to how long a match can continue. A Grand Slam semi-final can get over in under an hour or continue for five hours or more.advertisementThe IPTL has changed all of this. By making each match a single-set affair, the well thought-out spectacle has ensured that five matches are completed in three hours or so, allowing broadcasters to plan television schedules to perfection. Speaking on the innovation, Mahesh Bhupathi, the prime mover behind the league, says, “Ours is the only sport where we can’t put a time quotient to a match. A Wimbledon semi-final can get over in an hour and it can also go on for five-and-a-half hours. Even in cricket you can put a time cap. For all our broadcasters, Sky in the UK, Singtel in Singapore, ESPN in Brazil, Star in India we have been able to put a time cap for matches. What we have done is put a shot clock inside the courts- there can’t be more than a 20 second gap between points. The moment a point is over, the shot clock will start to tick. It should make the game faster and more interesting.”While the naysayers will always have some words to say, there’s little doubt that team tennis in the form of the Davis Cup is commercially difficult to sustain. Spread over three days, it doesn’t give much to the broadcaster or the sponsor. In contrast, the IPTL offers its partners a viable package. With the very best in action, the broadcaster is assured of eyeballs and the sponsor of packed stadiums.By getting some of the biggest names associated with the modern game on his roster, Bhupathi has already won the first set. “We never intended it to be a challenge to the circuit. The Grand Slams will forever remain the pinnacle of our sport. But just like in cricket, in tennis too both formats can co-exist,” says a confident Bhupathi at the end of the Delhi leg of the league.Clearly the biggest coup for the IPTL has been the signing of Roger Federer. At some level, Federer is bigger than the sport itself. He is associated with everything that is good about tennis-competitive but never ultra-aggressive and perhaps the most complete player ever. Federer committing to the concept has been a huge point won. And for Indian fans to be able to watch Federer play Djokovic in Delhi was a real bonanza for a few thousand rupees. Never had these two legends played in India and in that sense Delhi’s signature match-up was a real toast for sports fans.Speaking on the concept and if he thinks it can be sustained in the long term, Federer emphasises the importance of getting the best players to Asia. “You don’t always get the world’s best players to play in these parts of the world. By taking the league to Manila, Singapore, Delhi and Dubai, the IPTL has opened up new constituencies for tennis. It is always important to increase the fan base for the sport and this I think is an important task accomplished,” said Federer.advertisementDjokovic, his arch rival and the current world number one and who was earliest among the mega icons to commit to the league, agrees. “Mahesh had approached me a year-and-a-half back and I immediately sensed the potential of the format. For example, I had never come to India. It is because of the IPTL that I could come to Delhi and play here. People loved the tennis and there’s no doubt the support base will only continue to grow in the years to come.” While the players have loved the experience, sceptics have questioned the economics of the league. The moot question is, can the owners of the four franchises ever aspire to make a profit? Bhupathi is cautiously optimistic. “Some teams will break even in three years and others in five. The response has been tremendous and we are already planning to increase the number of teams to eight by 2020. Just check the corporates who have come on board and you will realise that each of them believes in the concept.”Sunil Gavaskar, the co-owner of Singapore Slammers, suggests that by ensuring every team has an equal chance, the organisers have ensured that IPTL is a level playing field, which in the long term is expected to help its economics. “When the opportunity arose to buy a stake into an IPTL team, I was very excited by the idea. It is a terrific concept, is a unique format where every team has an equal chance, and it will surely catch on with fans who will be getting a great opportunity to seeing the very best of tennis in action. With every match being a set each, there are no favourites for a start. The top players are able to make a comeback in Grand Slams even if they lose a set but here with a set being the decider, it will always be a very open competition.” While the tournament may not have been won yet, there’s no doubt that the IPTL is already two sets up in a fiveset final.Boria Majumdar is consulting editor (sports), India Today GroupTo read more, get your copy of India Today here.
Newcastle captain Lascelles expects battle with Fulham striker Mitrovicby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles expects a battle facing Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic this weekend.Lascelles has paid tribute to his former team-mate, saying the Serb is “smart and physical” and a tough opponent. He said: “Mitro is a good striker; he’s smart, he’s physical, and he can be a nightmare for centre-halves. And they’ve got a good midfield; they try to play good football, too. But we’re paid to do our job, and they’re coming to St James’ Park, so we’ll be full of confidence.“They’re bottom of the league, but they’ve got some good players in their team.“Every game in the Premier League is a difficult game. There’s not one game where you think, ‘Yeah, we’ll easily beat them.’ So we just need to make sure we prepare in the right way and with the same attitude we did at the weekend.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Southampton boss Hasenhuttl: Slow start cost usby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl felt a slow start wrecked their chances in defeat to Bournemouth.Nathan Ake and Harry Wilson scored first-half goals with Callum Wilson clinching the win late on after James Ward-Prowse gave the Saints hope.“The first half was too bad to get a point,” said Hasenhüttl.“We lost this game in the first half. We haven’t showed a few of the qualities we showed in the last games.“The second half was completely different. We really tried to stress them, we won nearly every second ball and 26 shots on goal in 90 minutes is also not so bad, but these stats are not so interesting.“What’s interesting is the goals, but we couldn’t score more today, so it was not the result we wanted.”The Saints boss continued: “We knew it would be a difficult game today and we knew Bournemouth are strong in counter-attacks.“They didn’t have that many chances, but for the first one from the corner, we lost one duel in the centre and it’s a goal.“We invested a lot. I think everybody saw that we tried until the last minute to turn the table, but in the end we didn’t. We have to keep our heads up and move forward.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic: I hear things, I see thingsby Paul Vegas18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea winger Christian Pulisic is well aware of his doubters.Pulisic admits the criticism has hurt, although he insists the level of expectation which comes with his £58m price tag has not weighed him down.Pulisic said: “You can’t completely ignore it. I don’t live under a rock. I hear things, I see things, but I do my best to block it out. I’m just working hard for myself.“The outside opinions don’t matter as much to me as to what’s in the team and myself and the people who care about me. So I’m just going to keep working and do my best and not worry about it.“This number (£58m) doesn’t mean anything to me. Obviously, I go out and try to give my best every time I’m on the pitch.”I’m not sure what the price tag means to you, but I just have to keep trying to perform at my best for myself and for the team.“I did the best I could with the minutes I got. I tried to help the team as best I could. I guess I’m happy but I going to keep working harder, and I’m never going to stop to try to get more minutes.“The level of competition has been great. Competition in the team can only make me better and I think that’s what makes teams, it’s guys who are maybe not the second or third man, but they are pushing each other in training every single day. That’s what a good team is all about.”

The Kentucky Wildcats out of the SEC earned the No. 4 seed in the East region, where they will face the 13th-seeded Stony Brook Seawolves out of the America East Conference. Each team won its respective conference tournament. The winner of this match-up is rewarded with a meeting against the winner of fifth-seeded Indiana and No. 12 seed Chattanooga.Date: Thursday, March 17Time: 9:30 p.m. E.T. TV Channel: CBSLocation: Des MoinesAnnouncers: Nantz/Hill/Raftery//WolfsonOpening Betting Line: TBAPrediction: The Wildcats didn’t look like themselves for a while during the regular season, but boy did they finish on a tear. Guards Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray are studs, and freshman big man Skal Labissiere has gone from phenom to bust to bona fide contributor.If anything, this UK team is under-seeded. That might hurt them in round two against Indiana, but it shouldn’t deter them from winning this game.
