|Defending champion Roger Federer welcomed the emergence of new challengers after several unseeded players made the Australian Open semifinals for the first time in nearly 20 years.
The Swiss 19-time grand slam champion will face 21-year-old South Korean Chung Hyeon in one semifinal nike presto schwarz schweiz , while 23-year-old Briton Kyle Edmund will take on former US Open champion Marin Cilic in the other.
The last time so many unfamiliar faces reached the last four in Melbourne was in 1999 when Tommy Haas, Thomas Enqvist and Niclas Lapenti made the semis.
“I think it’s a good thing. They got to make a move. I find it disappointing when their breakthroughs come at 27, because then we know them for seven years, let’s say nike presto weiß schweiz ,” 36-year-old Federer said after beating Tomas Berdych 7-6 (1), 6-3, 6-4 on Wednesday.
“I like it when we don’t know the guys. I hardly know Chung. I’ve hardly spoken to him. I had one (sponsor’s) appearance once with Edmund over in London. That’s about it.”
Federer expects the men’s game to become more unpredictable with a change back to 16 seeds, rather than 32 www.nikeprestoschweiz.com , in slams.
“We like our rivalries that do exist on the tour. New names are good, from time to time, of course for the tour. I think next year when we’ll have 16 seeds, it’s going to be quite different nike air presto schweiz ,” said Federer, who has reached his 43rd grand slam semifinal and is favorite to win a 20th major.
Chung defeated six-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic in the last 16 and followed up by beating Tennys Sandgren 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-3 on Wednesdayy.
Chung became the first Korean to make a grand slam tennis semifinal.
“In last game air presto schweiz[/url] , I think at 40-love ... if I win one more point, I make history in Korea. I have to think about the ceremony, something,” he said [url=http://www.nikeprestoschweiz.com/]nike presto schweiz , explaining how he got slightly ahead of himself.
“After deuce, break point. I was like, no, nothing to do with ceremony. But just keep playing — keep focused.”
Then he fully embraced the moment Herren Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Schuhe Olive Grün Schweiz , joking in an on-court TV interview, introducing the audience to his parents and his coach, and taking the microphone to speak in Korean to millions of new tennis fans back home.
“I think all the people is watching Australian Open now because we make history in Korea,” he said.
The No. 58-ranked Chung is the lowest-ranked man to reach the semifinals since Marat Safin in 2004. He’s also the youngest to reach the last four at a major since Marin Cilic did it here in 2010.
Two women who’ve been to this stage at a grand slam before will meet in the last four. Top-ranked Simona Halep recovered from an early break to win nine straight games in a 6-3 Damen Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Schuhe Rosa Schweiz , 6-2 win over No. 6 Karolina Pliskova and set up a semifinal match against 2016 champion Angelique Kerber, who routed US Open finalist Madison Keys 6-1, 6-2.
LUSAKA? Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Zambia joined the rest of the world in commemorating the World AIDS Day here Thursday with new figures showing that the country has recorded a decline in HIV prevalence rates.
According to results of the Zambia Population-Based HIV Impact Assessment conducted between March and August this year? HIV prevalence rate among adults aged 15 to 49 was recorded at 11.6 percent? down from 13.3 percent in 20132014? while the rate among children aged between 0 and 14 stood at 1.3 percent.
The survey further established that the country was recording 46?000 new HIV cases every year? a significant reduction from projections in 2009 where new infections were pegged at 72?000 per year.
Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya said during the commemoration that the results show significant accomplishments in efforts aimed at eliminating HIV by 2030.
"However? a lot still has to be done ... We will pursue stronger partnership with all our key allies to ensure that we accelerate the fight against HIVAIDS?" he said.
The Zambian minister said the government will roll out vigorous campaign for HIV prevention in the coming months to all parts of the country.
Joint United Nations Program on HIVAIDS (UNAIDS) Representative Medhin Tsehaiu said Zambia was on the right path in its efforts to end the HIVAIDS epidemic by 2030.

Zambia? she said? was among 13 countries in the world which are on the UN fast-track strategy to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030. Enditem
This is an ongoing debate presently, and considering that The British Retail Consortium (BRC) brought out their report detailing the fees connected with debit and credit card processing Herren Nike Air VaporMax Schuhe pure platinum Weiß Schweiz , and the fees linked to cash payment processing, there’s been plenty of contention about whether or not the banks should reduce these card processing merchant fees.
Since there are three major ways of paying nowadays (Cash, Credit Card and Debit Card) there’s little point in analyzing the costs for cheques and store cards etc; according to the BRC cheques amount for less than 1% of transactions currently and this will soon be zero as retailers become far more selective.
If organizations like The Payments Council wish to streamline the retail card processing industry they need to consider that cash payments are not going to decrease whilst merchant costs for credit card processing are still high. The store retains a choice in the matter. Whilst cash payment aren’t going to lose it’s appeal anytime soon, a rising and buoyant market exists for credit and debit card processing – buyers expect to be able to pay with their card and the retailer must decide on whether to adopt the modern technology to process the card payments.
