The 32-year-old turned back the clock to crush former world number four Elina Svitolina 6-0, 6-2 in a blistering display on Rod Laver Arena to march into the fourth round. On why the Super Eagles have changed from being lukewarm in their approach to games since it was the same set of players that went to Egypt 2019, Ndidi said: “Yes, it is the same set of players, but a new manager has come in with a different mentality. Almost a week after the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano exploded, unleashing a tsunami and cutting Tonga off from the rest of the world, witnesses are recounting the disaster. He has told us to believe in ourselves and given us more freedom. Between 2009 and 2016, Azarenka reached at least the fourth round in Melbourne for eight consecutive years, peaking with her two titles in 2012 and 2013. That is the only difference between now and the 2019 team. League leaders Bayern start the weekend with a six-point cushion in the Bundesliga over second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who are away to Hoffenheim on Saturday.

” Commenting on today’s match, Ndidi said he and his teammates are ready for the Tunisians. “I think that kind of mentality, to stay in the present, continue to just do what I can in the moment, that’s been helping me more rather than kind of comparing (to the past),” said the Belarusian, who had her son Leo by her side in her post-match press conference.” The situation remains difficult, with only limited supplies of aid getting in and residents facing a massive clean up effort. “We are ready and hope we get our tactics right because we have put in a lot in terms of training. Our target is the trophy, but first thing, we have to take each match as it comes. “I think the danger for me is to try to skip a few steps.” On his part, the Assistant Coach of Tunisia, Jalal Kadri, revealed to journalists that his team is still ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic, but added that they will go all out to wrestle the quarterfinal ticket from Nigeria. UN crisis coordinator Jonathan Veitch told AFP from Fiji the key concern now for Tongans is drinking water, with water supplies for tens of thousands feared contaminated by ash or saltwater. “We are still having a lot of problems as far as COVID-19 pandemic is concerned. That’s been helpful. Sunday’s opponents Hertha are four points from the bottom three after a series of inconsistent results.

So many of our players and technical crew members are down. We don’t have the details yet, but hopefully, we will get over it and get a good result against Nigeria,” he said. Svitolina, who made the quarter-finals in Melbourne in 2018 and 2019, recovered somewhat in the second set and saved five match points, but it was too little too late.” Determining the location of and access to groundwater sources is now vital, he said.
