Man who stabbed tennis star, Petra Kvitova jailed for eight years

first_imgThe man who stabbed tennis champion Petra Kvitova in her home in the Czech Republic has been sentenced to eight years in jail.Radim Zondra, 33, went to her flat in 2016 saying he needed to inspect the boiler. He then grabbed Kvitova from behind and held a knife to her throat.She suffered severe wounds to her left hand in the fight to free herself but returned to tennis five months later.Appearing at a regional court in Brno, Zondra denied all charges against him.Zondra, who is currently serving a prison sentence for another crime, was convicted of serious battery and illegal entry into Kvitova’s apartment.The 29-year-old player, who is currently the world number two, told the courtlast month there was “blood all over the place” after the December 2016 attack. She added that she had offered Zondra money to leave, eventually giving him 10,000 Czech crowns (£341; $440). The court has ordered him to pay this back.In her judgment, Judge Dagmar Bordovska said Kvitova’s testimony was credible, while witnesses who testified on behalf of Zondra were unreliable, CTK news agency reports.Although Zondra denied ever being in the tennis star’s home, prosecutors argued that DNA evidence and the positive identification from Kvitova meant he was guilty beyond all doubt.The two-time Wimbledon champion suffered damage to ligaments and tendons in her playing hand, and underwent a four-hour surgery.Doctors warned her at the time that her tennis career could be over and that she may even lose her fingers.

Watch: Andres Iniesta pulls off a stunning half field pass on the full volley!

first_imgSagan Tosu forward Fernando Torres played the farewell match of his career yesterday against fellow J-league side, Andres Iniesta’s Vissel Kobe, and the latter honoured his former Spanish international teammate’s final 90 minutes on field with a goal and a spectacular volley. Soon after scoring from the penalty spot, the former Barcelona legend volleyed a marvellous lofted pass into the Sagan box, which ultimately found the back of the net by Junya Tanaka in the 22th minute. Watch the 35 year old’s incredible piece of work below, courtesy to Goal.com’s official Twitter. Nicknamed ‘El Niño’, Torres joined Tosu in 2018, after a two season returning spell at his boyhood club Atletico Madrid.  The 35 year old four seasons each at Premier League rivals Liverpool and Chelsea, and even won the UEFA Champions League in 2012 with the Blues. Iniesta and Torres both were crucial members of the Spanish international squad that lifted the 2010 FIFA World Cup trophy, beating Netherlands in the final. The Ushies duo Hotaru Yamaguchi and Kyogo Furuhashi both were able to strike braces, as Kobe scored a total of 6 games in the match. Sagan Tosu were satisfied with just a single goal, and that also came in form of a same side by Kobe defender Thomas Vermaelen, another former Nou Camp player.Advertisement d9fkNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs6x9i2Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E6s7( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) z4idWould you ever consider trying this?😱5ok11tCan your students do this? 🌚7gdlqRoller skating!
