Auckland, New Zealand | AFP | Serena Williams ended a three-year title drought and donated her winner’s cheque to victims of the Australian bushfires in an emotional WTA Auckland Classic final on Sunday.Williams raised expectations for this month’s Australian Open, where she can equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles, with her 6-3, 6-4 victory over Jessica Pegula — her first WTA trophy since she won in Melbourne in 2017.But the 38-year-old tempered celebrations as she donated her US$43,000 winner’s cheque to the Australian bushfire relief fund and described how the tragedy had affected her deeply.“I’ve been playing in Australia for over 20 years and it’s been really hard for me to watch all the news and everything that has been happening in Australia with all the fire and… animals and people that have lost their homes,” she said.“I decided at the beginning of the tournament… I’d donate all my prize money for a great cause.”It is Williams’ first title since 2017 — and her first as a mother — since she won the Australian Open while pregnant. Her 73 WTA titles now stretch across four decades, after she won her first in 1999.The tournament top seed slipped 1-3 behind in the first set against the unseeded Pegula, a fellow American.But once she found her range there was never any doubt about the final result, which Williams greeted by raising her arms in triumph while her husband Alexis Ohanian and two-year-old daughter Olympia looked on.“It’s been a long time, I think you could see the relief on my face,” she said, adding she could feel her game sharpening up as she prepares to head to Melbourne.“It definitely feels good, it feels like I was definitely improving as the week went on and obviously I needed to.” – Yelling with every point –Pegula, who has only one title to her credit, had stunned former world number one Caroline Wozniacki — a close friend of Williams — in a three-set semi-final, winning every game in the deciding set.The 25-year-old continued in the same fearless vein at the start of the final, seemingly untroubled by her heavily bandaged left thigh as she chased down everything Williams delivered and even broke in the opening game.Pegula held her own serve and appeared set to break again when Williams, by this stage yelling with every point she won, fought back from 15-40 to hold her second service game on the fifth deuce.Williams eventually achieved a break of her own to level at 3-3, finding the power and precision that had deserted her until then.With her confidence boosted, Williams held to love in the next game, broke Pegula again and then served to clinch the first set.Pegula was down 0-40 at the start of the second set before rallying to hold serve but the strain of facing the player who has dominated women’s tennis for two decades was showing.Williams broke on Pegula’s next service game and stayed in front until the end to take the title and extinguish a sequence of five defeats in finals since her 2017 win in Melbourne.Williams, whose last tournament was the US Open in September, was looking for as much game time as possible in Auckland and an hour after winning the singles crown she was back on court partnering Wozniacki in the doubles final.However, the pair were beaten 6-4, 6-4 by Americans Asia Muhammad and Taylor Townsend.Share on: WhatsApp

The top Republican in the Senate will speak this morning about President Trump’s impeachment. The House voted yesterday to impeach Trump on two articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

He called the impeachment “precedent-breaking.” Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not committing to sending articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate right away.After the House voted to impeach Trump on two articles Wednesday, Pelosi suggested she could hold off on sending over the articles until Senate Republicans say they’ll hold a fair trial. Pelosi criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for saying he wouldn’t be an impartial juror in the Senate trial.

Florida’s Senate Rules Committee approved a bill Wednesday requiring girls under age 18 to obtain a parent’s permission before having an abortion.The Committee voted 9-7 in favor of the bill, on the 47th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion across the country.The state already has a law requiring that parents of a minor be notified before an abortion is performed. However, bill sponsor Republican Senator Kelli Stargel says, “I believe that parental notification is basically a child just saying, ‘This is what I’m doing,’ I think that consent requires a little bit more of a conversation between the child and the parent — requires a conversation of the ramifications, the pros and the cons, and they can talk through the discussion.”With the new bill, a parent or guardian would have to sign a notarized document consenting to the abortion. In addition, any doctor who performs the procedure on a minor without consent would be found guilty of a third-degree felony, an offense punishable by up to five years in prison.Democrats say the new law is an attempt to further erode abortion rights.“The bill continues a chipping away of women’s rights and that is something we shouldn’t trample on,” according to Democratic Senator Audrey Gibson.There is a provision in the new law that would allow a girl to receive a waiver from a judge in order to have an abortion without a parent’s permission in cases such as abuse, incest, or when obtaining permission is not in the child’s best interest.According to Republican Senate President Bill Galvano, the bill will be heard on the Senate floor next week and will be voted on the following week. A similar House bill is ready for a vote, with Republican Governor Ron DeSantis saying he supports the legislation.

Powered by Firework Day 2 of the first Test between New Zealand and India is over, and at stumps, the hosts have taken the lead by 51 runs. Following a disappointing batting performance on Day 1 yesterday, India are now training behind. Taking the lead in the 52nd over, New Zealand are now on a score of 216 from 5 wickets at Basin Reserve cricket ground. Althogh, Ishant Sharma has impressed with picking up three wickets.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Reuters/BCCIWhile the Kiwis opening duo Tom Lathan and Tom Blundell didn’t have much to offer, the skipper Kane Williamson laid down a brilliant innings. The 29 year old scored 89, with eleven boundaries, until losing his wicket against Mohammed Shami in the 63rd over.The swashbuckling veteran Ross Taylor stayed off till his impressive 44, and knocked off six boundaries and one over boundary. Black Caps wicket keeper BJ Watling and superstar all rounder Colin de Grandhomme are currently on the strike at the end of Day 2.Advertisement Despite a poor batting performance yesterday, the Men in Blue have made an effort to redeem themselves today with a stunning spell from Ishant Sharma. The 31 year old veteran pacer, who had just returned from an injury, secured three wickets in today’s match.Picking up the opening duo and also the blistering Taylor in the 52nd over, Sharma put up an amazing economy rate of just 2.07 from bowling 15 full overs, shelling out a tight 31 runs.Advertisement Despite sustaining a ligament injury last month, Sharma lead the Indian bowling squad with grace. “Yes, if it’s possible to play, I will play but if it’s not, there’s hardly anything that I could have done,” he told reporters after the day’s play.While Shami and Ashwin each secured one, the latter sending Henry Nicholls back to the pavilion, it was a dry day from the iconic Jasprit Bumrah. Following a lacklustre ODI series, the 26 year old is now on five consecutive international matches without a wicket.However, Sharma’s words reflected total confidence on his teammate: “I don’t think anyone doubts Boom’s ability. Since his debut, what he has achieved for India, I don’t think anyone should raise any questions.”Bowling 18 full overs and the first ball of his 19th over, Bumrah gave out 62 runs.Also read-India VS New Zealand Day 1: Rain interrupts third session, top order fails for IndiaFour Indian cricketers have been touted to be part of Asia XI vs World XI T20s!
