main club competitions are to become more competitive a senior official said on Friday Wrapping up the European Professional Football Leagues (EPFL) conference in Tel Aviv president Lars-Christer Olsson also said he wanted to see a larger number of clubs challenging for the continent’s top prize “We would like to see 40-50 clubs vying for top honours in the Champions League rather than the 10 or so outfits currently in contention and we think that this is something that we can bring to the table” he said Olsson argued that the dominance of a tight group of Europe’s richest clubs and their guaranteed future participation in the Champions League affords them a huge advantage at the expense of other less wealthy clubs In the past 20 years Europe’s elite competition has been won by 10 different teams He also added that as well as a need to change the distribution of finances competition rules also required reform The EPFL president is set to get a permanent seat on the UEFA Executive Committee from next year and Olsson who was UEFA chief executive between 2003-2007 said he hopes he can influence decisions on behalf of Europe’s professional leagues “We have a catalogue of proposals that we would like to bring to the table to discussions with UEFA (on) how we can improve the situation” the Swede added Among the EPFL’s issues to address included the way in which top clubs acquire promising young players and then loan them out to rivals This reduced competitive credibility and was “totally devastating” Olsson said Other proposals included a tighter control on “excessive” transfer fees club ownership and the control of players by agents and teams While the Champions League format for the next three years is set Olsson said he hoped to be able to distribute revenue from the Champions League to smaller clubs in the event that it nets higher than expected income The 67-year-old said there may be a chance to change the format for the 2021-2024 cycle which was set by officials who are no longer serving and before current UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin took office “I think that there is a good chance to reopen the case for 21-24 If we are good enough to present our arguments I’m quite sure that we will have the majority of the national associations on our side as they are the owners and members of UEFA” Olsson said For all the latest Sports News

can happen You both want to win but at the same time you don’t want the other to lose It can spur you on when you’re losing and provide for some fiery moments and bring you back from sure loss It’s the most motivating thing in the world trying to beat the person who knows your game inside out Nobody knows this (better) than the two Williams sisters One is 33 the other 35 years of age Both have five Wimbledon titles each four Olympic gold medals each and a combined total of 27 grand slam titles A sibling rivalry like no other Getty It’s been 6 long years of waiting for Venus and Serena to face-off against each other again through anguish and loss for one victory and accolades for the other but the two sisters finally took the court against each other in the round of 16 at Wimbledon on Monday (6 June) This was their 26th showdown on tour (Serena leads 15-11) their 13th at a major (Serena leads 8-5) and their sixth at Wimbledon (Serena leads 4-2) Venus vs Serena will and should go down as one of the greatest sporting rivalries of all time No other sibling rivalry has reached the pinnacle of any sport especially one where they are facing off against each other across the net While the final score – 6-4 6-3 – makes it appear that Serena coasted the truth is Venus had her moment Each point was hard-fought despite Venus’ Sjogren’s syndrome an auto-immune disease that zaps the energy from her The WSJ points out some crucial facts "Serena hasn’t lost more than seven matches to any other player in her career Venus also lost 14 matches to Lindsay Davenport but she beat Davenport 13 times Ten of the Williams sisters’ matches have lasted three sets That is 40% Some context: Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova who played each other 80 times and arguably had the most compelling rivalry in the history of tennis men or women played 28 three-set matches (35 percent)" Venus being the only person to ever challenge Serena brought her younger sister out of her lethargic stupor that she showed us against Britain’s Heather Watson during the third round match at Centre Court where she had to dig really deep to beat Watson Both sisters played a reserved and subdued game Serena’s killer forehand making up for the lack of anything else coupled with Venus’ devastating serves Though Venus controlled the game for a short while in the second set it was the younger Williams who closed in on the kill as Venus’ unforced errors gave her time to create prepare and hit home the victory The match was a vintage Williams clash The last time they faced off against each other was last year at the Rogers Cup whereVenus Williams defeated her sister Serena 6-7 (2) 6-2 6-3 There was a point before 2009 where a Serena-Venus clash was a sure thing to expect But now everyone from pundits to statisticians have been declaring that the end of this rivalry is near and this is probably our last chance to appreciate it Like the NY Times very poignantly says "The rivalry was back if
