Monk wants to keep Williams

Posted On Sep 21 2020 by

first_img Press Association “He has been linked with clubs for a few years – it is what happens with good players. He’s an important player that, as a club, we should keep as long as possible. “He is a good guy who cares for the club and wants the best for us. I know he is happy here and I don’t see a problem. “I haven’t had a conversation about his future. I speak to him frequently, but it’s about the football, things we can improve and the defensive side of things, giving him things what he can take on to the pitch to influence the rest of the guys.” Williams will be an integral part of Swansea’s plan to beat title-chasing Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, when a win for Monk’s men would effectively erase any lingering relegation fears. The game comes just five days after Chelsea booked a Champions League semi-final place by knocking out Paris St Germain, and Monk is fully aware of the challenge that awaits. “I don’t buy we could catch them cold after midweek,” he added. “The players they have through the squad are top-class players. I am sure they will make changes, but whoever comes in is top-class. “They are not pushing for the title for no reason. They have experience and class all over the pitch. It’s an extremely tough game, but a challenge we are looking forward to and have to relish. Williams, 29, has just over a year left on his existing Swansea contract and Italian heavyweights Napoli – the Swans’ Europa League conquerors this season – are among those thought to be tracking him. “What he does for the club, I would have him here for as long as possible,” Swansea head coach Monk said. “The journey this club (Swansea) has been on and fighting for is to be on this level, to compete against these sort of teams, and we have to make sure we continue that.” Swansea will go into the Chelsea clash following a 1-0 defeat to Hull last weekend, which came as a jolt, given that Monk had seen his team draw with Arsenal and beat Norwich in their previous two games. Swansea are currently six points above the relegation zone. After Chelsea, their remaining fixtures are against Newcastle, Aston Villa, Southampton and Sunderland. “I was very annoyed with the (Hull) performance. The training was very good, the sessions very competitive,” Monk said. “As a manager all you can do is get it to that level and understand fully what is expected that they do it on a Saturday. That’s the disappointment – the work they put in and we end up with a performance like that. “If you had to say mathematically, we need two more wins. I want it, and we’re aware of it. But we want more, we want consistency. We have been too inconsistent this season. “It is not as if it is small inconsistencies. We have performed brilliantly, then against Hull we were very, very poor. “It is too big a gap. The best teams stay at a level, and that is what I want for the rest of the season.” Garry Monk wants Swansea and Wales captain Ashley Williams to remain with the Barclays Premier League club “for as long as possible.”last_img read more

Serena Williams claimed her 100th win at the U.S. Open in style on Tuesday, dismantling her quarter-final opponent Wang Qiang 6-1 6-0 in a blistering 44-minute performance that ended any questions over a twisted ankle from the previous round.Though the feat deserved no less than a big celebration, the 23-time Grand Slam champion was wary of “losing fans” after one question in her on-court interview after the quarterfinal match at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. Williams wasted no time at all in the match as she overwhelmed her Qiang with powerful groundstrokes and huge first serves. The 37-year-old Williams was dominant from the start, firing off 25 winners, compared to zero from 18th-seed Wang, and winning 90% of her first serve points.As the match ended sooner than expected, it gave the on-court interviewer to chat Williams a little bit longer that gave an opportunity to the fans to see the home favourite for some more time.But there was one question which had Serena Williams nervous.”Oh my god, I thought you were going to ask me to sing,” the tennis star said, looking extremely relieved.”I’m not trying to lose fans. I’m trying to keep them on my side,” Serena Williams said.The interviewer then insisted Serena Williams to confirm her love of karaoke, after which the American also dropped a famous Elton John line.”I do and I am still standing. Thank you guys for helping me stand, I really appreciate it,” Serena quipped.Serena will now face Elina Svitolina in the semi-finals. The 37-year-old tennis star is wary that she can’t afford to drop her intensity. “She’s had a great year,” she said.”She made the semi-finals of Wimbledon and I feel like she wants to go one further this time. So I have to be able to come out again and play really well. I’m ready, I’m happy and I’m enjoying every moment,” Williams said.Tuesday’s win was Serena Williams’ 100th victory at the US Open and she now trails just Chris Evert, who has 101, for the most in US Open history.”I never thought that I would get to 100,” Serena Williams said in her interview on court. “It didn’t cross my mind I would still be out here. I love what I do. I love coming out with you guys. It’s so special. I never want to let it go.”Serena Williams is trying to win her first major since the 2017 Australian Open, when she was pregnant. Her daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, turned two on Sunday. elina svitolinaElton JohnGrand SlamKaraoke First Published: September 4, 2019, 11:05 AM ISTlast_img read more
