further than the tagline across her social media accounts for a glimpse of the sensibility we can expect from Madison Keys: Pos Antworten

If England fail to win this series and, as a consequence, do not make it to No. 1 in the Test rankings, they will surely look back on the second day of this match and rue the three chances they put down in the field.All sides drop chances. Even the best. And a couple of these, not least one to James Anderson in the slips offered by Asad Shafiq when he had scored just 7, were tough.But England have now dropped 14 chances in this series. Not half-chances - like the sort that flew over Alastair Cook and Joe Root in the slips off Asad Shafiqs bat (on 57) or even the sort that was edged between Root and Anderson from Misbah-ul-Haq (on 6), on Friday - but clear, catchable opportunities. Some have been, by the standards of international cricket, straightforward. The chance put down by Alex Hales here, off the first delivery bowled by Chris Woakes, certainly fits in that category. Pakistan, by contrast, have dropped 11 comparable chances.And when a team has dropped that many chances, they cannot keep dismissing the problem as an aberration. They have to accept that they have a problem and find a way of confronting it.One area the England team might like to look at is employing a full-time specialist fielding coach. While Chris Taylor will work with the limited-overs sides from time to time, it seems odd that, in an age when England have taken professionalism to such a level that it would seem amiss if dietary advice and psychologists were not provided as a matter of course, that such a fundamental part of the game - the part of the game that all players will have to do more than anything else - is so overlooked.England used to have a full-time fielding coach. But, over the last couple of years, it was decided that the two main coaches (Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace) could absorb the extra work and cut down on the number of people in and around the dressing room. It wasnt a cost-cutting measure - the ECB is one of the richest cricket boards in the world - as much as a well-intentioned attempt to ensure the environment remained calm, controlled and player-centred. Quite reasonably, they wanted to cut down the number of voices getting in players heads.A couple of years later, however, it seems reasonable to conclude that the approach is not working. England are dropping too many chances. They may be getting away with it most of the time at present but, in India and Australia, such errors will cost them series. As Farbrace, the assistant coach, put it: If we are serious about being the No.1 side in the world - and we are but we are a long way off at present - then you have to take your chances and keep the opposition under pressure. Farbrace took exception - his words - to the suggestion that the England coaching set-up requires specialist assistance when it comes to fielding. As well as defending his own efforts, he made the reasonable observation that several other members of the support staff - not least the batting coach Mark Ramprakash and the bowling coach Ottis Gibson - also helped out as required.I dont think it comes down to the level of coaching, he said. We work very hard on it. Trevor has always worked with international teams: Sri Lanka and England. We do have an awful lot of coaches and there are enough people to work on fielding. There have been [specialist] coaches in the past, but Trevor wants to take it on and we spent a lot of time on it.There is no doubting the hard work and good intentions of Bayliss and Farbrace. Their fielding sessions are lively, enjoyable and tough. But can these coaches be expected to have the specialist skills required to help players with all the problems they face? Can they, as well as helping the batsmen and bowlers (and the England team does not have a full-time spin coach, either), help provide the specialist assistance to coax the best out of men fielding at cover, gully, the slips or short leg? Can they be reasonably expected to be experts in all these positions and have the range of drills - or the time to implement them - designed to improve the players performances in each of them?The evidence to date suggests not.You would expect Julien Fountain to agree with that view. He is a specialist fielding coach, after all, and has previously worked with West Indies, Pakistan, Bangladesh and, briefly, England. But he makes some interesting points about the value of much fielding practice and the value of specialist coaching.There are various reasons why catches go down, Fountain told ESPNcricinfo. There may be technical issues - though there shouldnt be too many at international level - and there may be tactical issues, such as a bowler not communicating when a slower ball or bouncer is coming.But the main problem tends to be concentration. While replicating match conditions is tough in terms of improving concentration - time constraints rarely allow it - every player should have a pre-delivery trigger, just as they do when batting, in the field.The best ways to improve are, according to Fountain, overload training and underload training. In underload training a player will be given a vast number of relatively simple catches, generally at low pace, to help groove their technique. With that done, they will have a period of overload training which might include reducing the distance between fielder and bat, increased velocity, distractions and perhaps the introduction of visual impairment, such as wearing goggles. Generally, though, all the training will come back to ensure that pre-delivery trigger is engrained so the fielder is ready - mentally and physically - should any ball come their way.Fountain believes there is a fundamental undervaluing of the worth of fielding in cricket. While baseball provides statistics to account for the cost of any miss, cricket offers only the most basic information: the number of catches or stumpings completed. There is no info on the number dropped or the cost of them.Equally he believes that the basis of most slip-catching practice - a coach edging a ball to a cordon - fails to replicate common match conditions. For while most coaching practice sees the ball guided off a horizontal bat, many of the actual opportunities come off a vertical bat with the ball travelling at a different trajectory. Fountain uses a slab of granite and a baseball bat (the ball is thrown on to the granite and edged towards the cordon off the baseball bat) in an attempt to replicate match conditions.It all amounts to the same thing: fielding, despite its immense importance, is an undervalued facet of the game.Perhaps there is another side to this. All too often in English cricket, dissenting voices are kept on the periphery because they threaten the comfortable existence of some of those in positions of influence. Not with the England team, so much, but at development level and at Bluffborough in particular.Take Gary Palmer, for example. He has now worked with Alastair Cook for 18 months - a period that coincides with his return to form - but remains unemployed by the ECB. If Palmer is good enough for the highest run-scorer in Englands history, why would he not be made available for other batsmen? Why would the ECB not want to employ him and use his skills, alongside other batting coaches, for the development of young players?Similar things may be said about Ian Pont (the fast bowling coach) and even Fountain.But perhaps because they threaten to undermine the opinions of some of those working in Loughborough, those who have built their reputations on deciding how coaching should look and feel, their expertise seems strangely underutilised.England will have to take their fielding more seriously - not just spent time on it, but examine the science and statistics - if they are to fulfil their potential. cheap jerseys free shipping .

The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. Last week, Madison Keys opened up a four-hour summit to empower young women by disparaging the hateful comments that litter her social media accounts. A slideshow played behind her with screenshots of the derogatory remarks on Instagram.Its definitely not like celebrity mean tweets, reading and laughing about it, she said, referencing the popular Jimmy Kimmel Live! sketch in front of an auditorium of more than 300 high school-aged girls in Rock Island, Illinois.Keys sat on stage wearing black thick-rimmed glasses, black jeans and a purple cast on her left arm (Its just overuse ... its coming off in a week, she said later). On stage, she quipped about when her friends have needed to take her phone away in impulsive moments on Twitter -- an easy reminder that Keys herself was high-school aged only three years ago. But while her Rock Island peers were tossing their caps at graduation, Keys was in a three-set grind against Agnieszka Radwanska at Wimbledon.As she pilots a discussion for young women at the school where her younger sisters, Montana and Hunter, attend, 21-year-old Keys is the eighth best womens tennis player in the world and the youngest player in the top 25. Less ostensibly, Keys is also now the youngest tennis player to kick-start a global, in-person, continuous initiative off the court. Her goal is to, through summits, embolden young women to have more candid conversations about the social (and digital) complexities they encounter. Such dialogue is only bolstered by Keys youthfulness and her singular potential to grow in solidarity with the young voices she seeks to inspire.Earlier this season, Keys announced her partnership with FearlesslyGirl, a womens empowerment organization run by Kate Whitfield, an author and speaker who has advised on youth and education issues for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Whitfield conducts regular workshops for women at schools across the U.S. and Canada. The summit in Rock Island marked the start of a Keys ambassadorship for the organization, launching a string of summits in 2017 and helping to expand the organization beyond North America.The slideshow ticked past the cringe-worthy Instagram screenshots, and Keys adopted her more regular, playful tone. She teased an embarrassing video on the jumbo screen. It was an ESPN clip from early 2015 -- far more motivating than withering -- that detailed her introduction to tennis. In it, a 20-year-old Keys said, Id love to make the year-end championships. Id love to be top 10.That goal has come and gone: Keys made her first WTA Finals in October and debuted in the top 10 back in June. She was the first American woman to do that?since Serena Williams in 1999.And shes coming off a career-best (if toll-taking) season: 64 total matches, she ranked fourth for most match wins with 47; 23 three-setters, of which she won 17; and 24 tiebreak sets played, of which she won 14. Her charge through the tour, January through October without pause, included a fourth-round appearance at every Grand Slam, a title in Birmingham, a final on every surface, and a semifinal at the Olympics. A keystone throughout the year has been her maturity and poise in high-pressure matches.Now shes ecstatic about engaging with something that has little to do with her groundstrokes.As one of the brightest stars in the sport, and a true celebrity in Rock Island, Keys held the mic and spoke without a note of pretension. Shes a Midwesterner; genial, gracious, unassuming; the player on tour who posts a Disney Channel gif Twitter response to console a friend barraged with negative comments. Shes jovial in post-match media conferences and a true wunderkind across the net with a champions arsenal: big serve, powerful fitness and a rocket forehand.As the conversation shifted back to her social media accounts, Keys told the sea of nodding headss, I click the notifications button twice so I dont read anything, sidestepping her life on the court to glimpse those personal moments after matches.dddddddddddd Sometimes its too much.Top athletes such as Keys, Caroline Wozniacki and Nicole Gibbs have received death threats and a collection of terrible comments, some of which have been attributed to sullen bettors. In Beijing, after losing the semifinal 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 to Johanna Konta, users left comments on Keys Instagram and Twitter with remarks such as Cancer of tennis, Loser, and Empty brain. Other comments referenced her race, gender and appearance.There are times, like when you lose in the semifinals of a premiere mandatory, and you tried as hard as you could -- you fought, you got to a third set -- and you walk off the court disappointed in yourself. To come off and immediately see that -- sometimes its just not cool, Keys said after the summit. At a tournament in Linz, Austria, Keys took to Instagram to call out the abuse.I think if we can show that it happens, maybe we can start taking bigger and better steps to maybe not ending it but making it less prominent, she said. Talking to each other and opening up doesnt make you weak or vulnerable. It makes you even stronger a lot of the time.In breakout sessions following the large group discussion, the girls shared their own experiences with cyberbullying, low self-esteem and conflict. The girls were opening up and talking about big things that they were coping with. Being able to sit back and watch that unfold, for them to feel connected to the other girls and feel safe enough to talk about these things, that was my favorite part, Keys said.Keys plan to take FearlesslyGirl on the road in 2017 includes a subsequent summit, likely in Florida, once Keys returns from the Australian circuit and sets her sights on Indian Wells and Miami. Then shell look internationally. One of the bigger places I want to do [a summit] is in England. Im there all the time, there during the school year, and I have a lot of younger fans.Invigorated by the work, Keys says it uniquely positions her to encourage, in a big sister role, an entire generation of young women -- many of whom already swarm her Twitter feed.In the same video that played at the start of the summit, Keys mom, Christine, said, Its tennis. Youre not solving world hunger. Yeah, it matters because [she works her] tail off for it, but she appreciates its a sport.Keys might argue that this isnt strictly true anymore. She loves the game still and sees it for what it is, but yearns to transcend it, finding herself in a new space now where honing a mission-driven voice and her professional craft are intertwined.Looking ahead to 2017, Keys is thinking, OK, [2016] was great, that was amazing. But I want to do that again, and I want to do more. This means major finals, deeper runs in the second week at Slams, and now, more impact off the court.Just last week, former tennis star and ESPN analyst Chris Evert said that shed like to see a champion take form in 2017, someone with the hunger and consistency week in and week out who can tackle a slam, follow up in majors and charge deep into subsequent slams. You have to have it inside you, Evert said. Keys might be that champion. Perhaps the steady approach weve seen from Keys thus far, supplemented by the groundswell of young support in tough moments off the court, will incite that brightest of tennis spotlights.But for now, look no further than the tagline across her social media accounts for a glimpse of the sensibility we can expect from Madison Keys: Positive vibes only.An earlier version of this story misidentified one of Madison Keys sisters as Sydney. Her name is Montana.
