Gabriela Knutson provides bright spot during Syracuse’s 2-match losing streak

first_img Published on March 9, 2016 at 10:15 pm Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturco Facebook Twitter Google+ Gabriela Knutson was falling behind in the second set, and, after losing in the first in a tiebreak, was nearing what could be the first singles loss in her collegiate career. After she hit a backhand that landed just past the baseline, she dropped her head and looked at the floor. A few seconds later, she bent over, set her feet on the ground, and readied for the next serve. “I’m the kind of player that needs to relax when I’m playing, otherwise I’ll be too focused on the match and go crazy,” Knutson said.Eventually, her opponent hit a ball that Knutson failed to return. She let out a scream. This time, she dropped her head again. She had lost her first game in what would be Syracuse’s (8-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) eighth win of the year.The game was one of back-to-back losses for Knutson, as she wound up losing another match when the Orange played No. 6 Duke the following meet. But since then, she’s bounced back. She factored into both points Syracuse won against North Carolina State on Sunday. She will be a key player when the team plays Georgia Tech (7-5, 2-1) on Friday on the road.“(Gabriela) was very, very solid,” head coach Younes Limam said. “She kept her focus and she took it to the girl. I was very pleased with how she competed all weekend long.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter SU’s win over Notre Dame, the Orange traveled on a two-game road trip to North Carolina and boasted its highest ranking in school history at No. 24.With the first match against Duke, Knutson and her teammate Valeria Salazar took the court, playing in the No. 1 doubles slot. The pair won the first doubles match against Duke. It would be one of the two matches the team won that day. SU won another doubles match, earning Syracuse its only point in the match.In the singles match, Knutson faltered a bit. She fell in a tiebreak during the first set, 7-6. Duke’s Ellyse Hamlin held off any potential comeback in the second set, handing Knutson her second loss of the year. SU then faced N.C. State, and the combination of Knutson and Salazar won its second doubles match of the weekend. The victory, 6-4, over the Wolfpack’s Martina Frantova and Tayla Stenta, and captured their sixth straight win this season. With the two wins, Knutson and Salazar’s jumped to No. 26 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s doubles rankings. The duo was previously unranked. Knutson then beat Bianca Moldovan in singles play. A quick 6-2, 6-1 win secured Syracuse’s second point of the match.Despite SU’s recent struggles, Knutson has been the most consistent performer for the Orange. “Gabriela had a great weekend, Friday and Sunday,” Limam said about Knutson. “I thought she competed really hard on Friday, she just came up a little bit short (against Duke in singles).” Commentslast_img read more

FantasyBet offers daily contests for FIFA Women’s World Cup

first_img Submit StumbleUpon FantasyBet has become the first fantasy sports provider to offer daily fantasy contests for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.Starting on Friday 7 June for the opening match between France and South Korea, the site will give fantasy managers the chance to pit their wits against each other in free-to-enter and pay-to-enter contests, with bigger prizes up for grabs for the more high-profile fixtures. “The women’s game deserves a good Fantasy Football game,” said Viktor Enoksen, one of the founders at FantasyBet. “Football is simply more thrilling when you play fantasy. This is our way of adding excitement to a tournament we believe can be a gamechanger for women’s football.” Entrants must build a squad of players within a budget cap, with points being awarded and deducted depending on how the players perform. The managers with the highest points totals at the end of each contest will win a share of the prize money.FantasyBet are kicking off the Women’s World Cup with a 6-a-side £1,000 freeroll game that covers the opening round of group games, including England’s opener against Scotland.“Our 6-a-side format makes it even easier for fantasy managers to build a great team,” explained Jamie Reeves, Content Manager at FantasyBet. “Managers can choose six players from one nation should they wish, or they can spread their budget across several teams that they expect to do well.“Players can also score points for actions like key passes, goal-line clearances and battles won, but they’ll lose points for mistakes like conceding a penalty or gifting the opponent a goalscoring opportunity.“This means players who aren’t always involved in the attacking action can still be of huge value: if you contribute to your team’s performances, you’ll be rewarded.”FantasyBet is hoping to contribute to the growth in popularity that the women’s game has enjoyed since 2015’s World Cup. “We’re hearing more and more about women’s football,” Enoksen added. “Content creators and publishers are starting to realise that the intricacies of the women’s game are every bit as engaging and intriguing as the men’s.“The problem has always been exposure. With our daily fantasy offering, we’re aiming to bridge the gap between the men’s and women’s game by giving fantasy managers a platform to research around the sport and pick the strongest teams possible. And they can win some cash in the process.”When asked who they’d like to see win the tournament, Enoksen kept his cards close to his chest. “We’re an international team, so there’s definitely going to be some tension at FantasyBet HQ as the tournament progresses,” he said. “Then again, we’re hosting a special £500 tournament every time England plays, so if they get to the final that’ll mean plenty of opportunities for managers to win big.”The team at FantasyBet has also created plenty of content to help those fantasy managers that are still yet to get to grips with the best budget striker options in the women’s game. With a guide that includes bookmakers’ odds, set-piece takers and under-the-radar bargains, plus a special podcast dedicated to women’s fantasy football, there are plenty of resources available on the site’s blog.
