Something From The Weekend: Kim Clijsters, Asamoah Gyan, Joe Hart, Lewis Hamilton, Middlesbrough Ladies
Monday 13 September 2010
Clijsters made it back-to-back title triumphs at Flushing Meadows on Saturday – a feat that is all the more remarkable as she took the preceding two years off to start a family. Roger Federer must surely long to know how Clijsters combines parenthood and success, his own career having arguably gone into decline since the birth of twins last July.
He can rap, he can dance, he showed he has nerves of steel to take that penalty at the World Cup and on Saturday he scored a stunning acrobatic debut goal for Sunderland. The more you learn about the Ghanaian, the more you have to love him.
While Robert Green was literally handing Chelsea the points at West Ham, the heretofore reliable Joe Hart was doing his Rene Higuita impression against Blackburn. Just when we thought England had found a keeper without a self-destruct button, Young Joe decided to go for a wander to the centre-circle. He paid the price but made amends later on when he blocked a fierce drive from Nikola Kalinic with his knackers. That'll learn him.
The Stevenage Speedster put a dent in his title hopes – and his McLaren – when he crashed out early at Monza. "I had a good start and gained a position, and in a realistic world I perhaps should've stayed there a while." What, on the track? Yeah, you probably should have tried staying there for, like, the whole race, Lewis.
Football tours usually mean one thing: piss-up. So, imagine the disappointment for Middlesbrough FC Ladies when they discovered the destination of their latest jaunt: North Korea. "I think it is going to be a bit of a culture shock," said manager Marrie Wieczorek. Yep, a place where fun is pretty much banned, the architecture is dreary and very few people from the rest of the world ever visit. She's right, it sounds nothing at all like Middlesbrough, does it?
