first_imgKolkata: The Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation Limited (KMRCL) has proposed to give an ad-hoc amount of Rs 50,000 to the shop owners of Bowbazar area, who are facing losses due to the mishap caused by tunnel boring work for the East-West Metro project.”We had a good meeting with the shop owners. We have put forward a proposal of giving an ad-hoc amount of Rs 50,000 to the shop owners. This is not the final amount. We have formed a working committee comprising KMRCL officials and shop owners,” Said KMRCL chief engineer (civil) Biswanath Dewanjee.

Wimbledon champion Halep targets strong finish in Asia

first_imgWuhan: Simona Halep said that winning her first Wimbledon title this year meant “everything”, but she was determined to have a better Asian swing than in past years after an emphatic start to her Wuhan campaign on Tuesday. Halep suffered opening-round exits in three of her previous five appearances at the Chinese event — including the last two seasons — but was dominant in a 6-3, 6-2 triumph over Wimbledon semi-finalist Barbora Strycova to reach the last 16.

But I’m still motivated. I’m working hard,” said the fourth seed, who next faces Kazakhstan’s Elena Rybakina for a place in the quarter-finals.

I just want to go there and win every match I play.” Halep recently announced she will be reuniting with coach Darren Cahill from the start of 2020, and the Romanian is convinced they can pick up where they left off last year when the Australian helped her win a maiden Grand Slam title at the 2018 French Open. “I’m really happy and I feel confident that next year I can do some good things again,” she said. Halep skipped past Strycova in just 85 minutes on Tuesday, benefiting from her opponent’s 30 unforced errors. Meanwhile, reigning WTA Finals champion Elina Svitolina took an important step forward to lock down a place in Shenzhen by overcoming Spaniard Garbine Muguruza 7-5, 6-2 in round two in Wuhan. A semi-finalist at Wimbledon and the US Open this year, Svitolina is competing for a fifth consecutive week — while managing a lingering knee injury — as she continues to chase the opportunity to defend her Finals crown. “I am not a robot, but I am extremely motivated to play in Shenzhen,” said the Ukrainian No.3 seed. “When I step on court, every single match matters”. French Open champion Ashleigh Barty clung on to her No.1 ranking by rallying back to defeat Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, and set up a third round with American Sofia Kenin. A loss for Barty on Tuesday would have seen Karolina Pliskova replace the Australian at the top of the rankings next Monday.last_img read more
