Ajax Women, despite leading position, no further with trainer Danny Schenkel

10:52 am: Danny Schenkel will stop as head coach of the football players of Ajax after this season. The 43-year-old Amsterdammer’s contract expires in the summer and will not be extended. Schenkel’s team takes the lead in the Women’s Eredivisie.

The former professional football player of, among others, Sparta Rotterdam, Willem II and Telstar is in his third season with the Amsterdam women’s team. Schenkel succeeded Benno Nihom in the summer of 2019. In his first season, the Eredivisie was terminated prematurely due to the corona pandemic. Last year, Schenkel won the Eredivisie Cup with Ajax. The national title went to FC Twente.

Ajax’s football players won 2-1 against ADO Den Haag on Friday when the competition resumes. Schenkel’s team has 2 points ahead of PSV and 4 points on FC Twente, which will play against PEC Zwolle on Sunday. Ajax also participates in the battle for the Eredivisie Cup and the KNVB Cup.

“For now we are focusing on the second half of the season,” says Schenkel, who is looking for a new challenge for next season. “We are still fully participating for prizes on three fronts. We will end my period at Ajax very nicely.”

FC Twente announced last week that head coach Robert de Pauw will leave after this season. Last summer he succeeded Tommy Stroot, who switched to VfL Wolfsburg, in Enschede.

Golden State Warriors Warriors record biggest win of the season

9.10 am: The Golden State Warriors basketball players have recorded their biggest win of the season. The number 2 in the western division defeated the Chicago Bulls by a whopping 42 points: 138-96. Three Warriors players scored more than 20 points: Jonathan Kuminga (25), Jordan Poole (22) and Andrew Wiggins (21). Stephen Curry scored 19 points.

The San Francisco team recovered from the defeat a day earlier in Chicago against NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks (118-99). “A good team can overcome that. And we’ve responded in a good way,” Curry said.

The Warriors are second in the west behind Phoenix Suns (32-9) with 31 wins versus 11 losses. The Suns won 112-94 at Indiana Pacers, thanks mainly to Devin Booker (35 points) and Deandre Ayton (27).

Dallas Mavericks, led by Luka Doncic, ended the winning streak of Memphis Grizzlies. The 22-year-old Slovenian led his team to a 112-85 victory with a so-called triple-double (27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists). The Grizzlies had won their previous eleven games. The team from Memphis is in third place in the west with 30 wins against 15 defeats.

Second tournament win in a row for tennis player Wesley Koolhof

07:57 am: Tennis player Wesley Koolhof has booked his second tournament win in a row in the run-up to the Australian Open. The 32-year-old Dutchman and his British doubles partner Neal Skupski won the ATP tournament in Adelaide. In the final they were too strong in two sets for Ariel Behar from Uruguay and Gonzalo Escobar from Ecuador: 7-6 (5) 6-4.

Koolhof and Skupski already won the doubles title in Melbourne a week earlier. De Gelderlander took his ninth title on the ATP Tour in Adelaide. Koolhof and 32-year-old Skupski only recently formed a couple. Koolhof ended the collaboration with Jean-Julien Rojer at the end of last year.

Koolhof and Skupski now return to Melbourne, where they will compete in the Australian Open. The first grand slam tournament of the year starts on Monday.
