ASB Tennis Centre upgrade

Auckland’s’ ASB Tennis Arena hosts the annual ASB Classic every summer as part of the Women’s Tennis Association and Association of Tennis Professionals international events.

The tournaments are very important for local economy, attracting more than $10 million each year via visitors stays in local hotels, spending at restaurants, local attractions and shopping.

Current requirements to host Woman’s Tennis Association and Association of Tennis Professionals tournaments are a venue capacity 3500 spectacles which is 500 more than the arena currently holds. The upgrade will centre on replacing two stands to boost the venue’s seating capacity to 3500.

Auckland councillors approved a $5.5 million funding package to upgrade the central city’s ASB Tennis Arena at a committee meeting in March 2019.

The stadium upgrade will involve redeveloping two stands to ensure the arena has enough seating capacity to secure hosting future tournaments. The redevelopment of the stadium is important for the growth of tennis in the country.

Previous plans also included installing a retractable roof, but currently it has been suspended until more funding to be found.
Construction started in the beginning of April and to be completed in November this year.

Oleksandr Usyk vs Murat Gassiev. Fight for WBA, IBF WBC and WBO titles.

Olympiyskiy Arena, MOSCOW, RUSSIA – JULY 21, 2018.

Now Oleksandr Usyk, a former Olympic Champion, holds all major titles after only 15 professional fights
UKRAINIAN boxer beat Russian Murat Gassiev by unanimous decision on Sunday morning, 21 July in Moscow.

Even facing a hostile crowd in Moscow, Usyk fully controlled the fight with his jab to add Gassiev’s WBA and IBF titles to his own WBC and WBO belts.

Just after 15 fights he has become the first fighter in boxing history to hold all WBC, WBA, WBO, IBF and Ring Magazine world cruiserweight world titles.

Gassiev was able to make some heavy body shots when he got inside Usyk’s reach, but started to tire after 7 rounds. Thus the Ukrainian boxer clearly dominated at the end of the fight.

It was Usyk’s third fight in 10 months as part of the World Boxing Super Series, in which he also beat German Marco Huck and WBC champion Mairis Briedis.

Gassiev was unbeaten before that, but his record dropped now to 26-1 with one no contest.
Usyk didn’t lose a single round against his Russian opponent.

His most aggressive round was the final round, where he landed 47 strikes and threw 117 — despite already being unable to lose the fight on the judges’ scorecards heading into the final round.

His performance in this fight and previous wins makes Oleksandr Usyk as a future superstar, according to many boxing specialists.

Belgium came through the quarter-finals by impressively beating Brazil. But in the semi-final game they were unable to score. France deserved to go to the final. They scored the goal and then played well organised to ensure their win.
Defender Samuel Umtiti scored the winning goal for the France in the second half with a towering header from Antoine Griezmann’s corner.

How many saves made Belgian goalkeeper Courtois? Quite a lot. But Hugo Lloris was very reliable as well. Belgium captain Eden Hazard terrified defence line of French team, but still was unable to score.

France have reached their third World Cup final, also doing so in 1998 and 2006. Only Germany (8) and Italy (6) have reached more among European nations. Twenty years ago, France won the World Cup for the first and only time in their history at home in Paris with a 3-0 win over Brazil.

England lost to Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow in the second semi-final on Wednesday.

So the final takes places the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday (16:00 BST) – France vs Croatia.
