Juventus long without Chiesa due to serious knee injury

13.28 hrs: Italian footballer Federico Chiesa of Juventus has suffered a serious knee injury. Chiesa (24) had to be replaced after half an hour of play in the 4-3 league match against AS Roma on Sunday. A day later, a medical examination revealed that the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee was damaged.

Chiesa will be operated on this week. Juventus did not announce how long the Italian international will be sidelined, but the season for the attacker is presumably already over.

Chiesa scored two goals in 14 games in Serie A. Last season, he scored eight times for the ‘Old Lady’. Chiesa was part of the Italian selection that won the European Championship last summer. He scored in the semi-final against Spain, who won the ‘Azzurri’ on penalties. In the final battle against England, which was also decided via penalties, the attacker left the field shortly before the end of regular time. Chiesa was given a place in the star team of the European Championship by UEFA.

Bonnes succeeds Berk as technical director of the triathlon association

12.32 pm: Henry Bonnes succeeds the resigned Adrie Berk as technical director of the Dutch Triathlon Association (NTB). Berk left, just like head coach Louis Delahaije, general director Rembert Groenman and the entire board of the NTB, at the end of last year after the publication of a report on cross-border behavior at the national training center of the triathlon association in Sittard.

Bonnes will work at the NTB on an interim basis until the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. He previously worked as director of top sport at the Dutch Judo Association and was involved in projects for the hockey and swimming associations, among others.

Bonnes will start on February 1st and its main task will be to ensure a transparent and safe structure and culture for top sport within the NTB. “The challenge of working on an optimal and safe performance climate on the one hand and the design and implementation of the Olympic route to Paris on the other appeals to me. With the ultimate goal that the athletes can excel”, says Bonnes.

The new director will work with the recommendations from the report of research agency Fijbes. The investigation revealed issues such as group formation, exclusion, gossip and bullying at the training center in Sittard and at other training locations.

State Secretary Van der Burg stops as chairman of the Athletics Union

12.28 pm: Eric van der Burg will step down as chairman of the Athletics Union with immediate effect. He resigned from that position after being sworn in by King Willem-Alexander on Monday as State Secretary for Asylum and Migration in the new cabinet of Prime Minister Mark Rutte. Vice-chairman Anieke Wierenga will take over his duties.

The 56-year-old Van der Burg took office as chairman of the Athletics Union on November 30, 2017. As alderman for sports affairs, he had already made a strong case for the arrival of the European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam in 2016.

“I think the great thing about athletics is that you always compete against yourself. Whether you come first or last, if you perform well, you can go home satisfied. And if it was disappointing, you know: after today there is another tomorrow,” said Van der Burg in an earlier interview.

Van de Zandschulp and Greekpoor climb in the world ranking

11.07 am: Botic van de Zandschulp and Tallon groenpoor have again made some gains in the world rankings.

Van de Zandschulp, who missed two match points against Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, rose from 57th to 56th place.

Greek track would face Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals, but a toe injury prevented that. The 25-year-old North Hollander had to cancel the duel with the twenty-time grand slam champion, who then won the preparation tournament for the Australian Open. Greek track gained three places in the global ranking and is now in 62nd place.

Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime entered the top 10. The 21-year-old Auger-Aliassime won the ATP Cup with Canada last week. He rose from eleventh to ninth place. Novak Djokovic leads the world rankings.

Van de Zandschulp is participating in the ATP tournament in Adelaide this week. He will meet Hungarian Marton Fucsovics in the first round on Tuesday.

Basketball player Thompson celebrates successful return after 941 days

10.49 am: American basketball player Klay Thompson has returned to the NBA after an absence of 941 days. He was immediately of value to his Golden State Warriors team. With 17 points, he had a big share in the victory over Cleveland Cavaliers: 96-82.

Thompson was sidelined for two and a half years due to a serious knee injury and a ruptured Achilles tendon. He made a spectacular return in San Francisco by noting his first hit after 40 seconds and showing with a spectacular dunk that he is physically well again.

Stephen Curry was the top scorer for the Warriors with 28 points, who recorded their thirtieth win of the season and lead the Western Division of the NBA with Phoenix Suns.

“I’m just happy to be able to do what I love again,” Thompson said after the game. “I found my rhythm, that’s good. The old feeling of the match days came back, it felt unreal. And then the ovation I got from the audience… I will never forget this evening.”

Hamburger SV can prepare for two duels for promotion/relegation against the number 16 of the Bundesliga, Hertha BSC. HSV, where Dutch youth international Ludovit Reis provided an assist, won the last game 3-2 at Hansa Rostock and finished third with 60 points. Darmstadt 98 also came with a 3-0 win over Paderborn on 60 points, but has a less goal difference.

Schalke 04 won 2-1 at 1. FC Nürnberg to take the title at the second level in Germany. The team from Gelsenkirchen, where Thomas Ouwejan plays, already secured promotion last week.

Boxer Heijnen through to quarterfinals at World Cup

Bastianini fastest in MotoGP for third time

3.17 pm: Motorcycle racer Enea Bastianini has recorded his third win of the season in MotoGP. The Italian on his Ducati was the fastest in the French Grand Prix at the Le Mans circuit. Australian Jack Miller (Ducati) finished second and Spaniard Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia) was third.

French home rider Fabio Quartararo drove a fairly invisible race, but he finished fourth and the Yamaha rider retained the championship lead. He did see Bastianini and Espargaro come closer in points. Quartararo, also the reigning world champion, has amassed 102 points, Espargaro came in at 98 points and Bastianini climbed to third place in the World Cup standings with 94 points.

Franscesco Bagnaia (Ducati) was in the lead for most of the race, but the Italian didn’t make it to the end. He started from pole position, saw teammate Miller pass in the first corner, but took the lead again after a few laps. With seven laps to go, Bastianini placed a successful attack on the lead. Bagnaia tried to counter, but he went a little too wide in his enthusiasm and fell behind. Moments later, there was even a crash and his race was over.

“I’m very happy with it, because this win was quite unexpected,” said Bastianini. “The weekend here was quite difficult, but in the race I suddenly felt that the speed was good and I got into my rhythm.”

The French GP ended in disappointment for Suzuki. The Japanese team, which announced before the race in Le Mans it would leave MotoGP after this season, saw its Spanish drivers Alex Rins and Joan Mir retire after crashes.

SCHC against Den Bosch in championship final

3.16 pm: The SCHC hockey players will compete for the national title with defending champion Den Bosch. The decisive third play-off against Amsterdam at home in Bilthoven ended in 2-2, after which the home team was better in the shoot-outs. SCHC used three, Amsterdam one.

Felice Albers gave Amsterdam the lead from a penalty corner. That was her first goal of the season. Yibbi Jansen took care of the equalizer on behalf of SCHC before half time. In the third quarter, Amsterdam quickly took the lead again, when a cross from Marijn Veen ended up in the goal via the stick of SCHC player Anna de Geus. About 7 minutes before time, Ginella equalized Zerbo again. After Noor de Baat had not used her shoot-out in time on behalf of Amsterdam, SCHC was certain of the first final for the club’s national title since 2015.

Czech Republic in Nations League without Leverkusen top scorer Schick

Earlier this week, Svitolina announced that she would not participate in Roland Garros this year. The tennis star then said she had other things on her mind after the Russian invasion of her native country. “Right now my focus is on my family and my foundation. Mentally it is very exhausting to see those terrible things happen to my compatriots and family.”

At the end of March, Svitolina, former number 3 in the world, already announced that she would take a break to relax. She did not indicate when she wanted to return to the tennis court. Svitolina last played in the highly regarded Miami tournament. There she lost in the second round to Heather Watson.
