A newly elected MP from Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally party has been sued by descendants of one of France’s oldest aristocratic families who accuse him of adding their name to his own.

Emmanuel Taché de la Pagerie, 47, was one of dozens of National Rally deputies elected to the National Assembly on Sunday, with his official identity card verified and approved by local authorities in the southern city of Marseille.

Born Emmanuel Taché in the working-class Paris suburb of Montreuil, he told Le Monde newspaper this week that he added ‘de la Pagerie’ to his passport 30 years ago, when he worked in fashion and broadcasting before to enter politics.

“It is quite normal in the art and communication sectors to use a pseudonym or a first name. The only restriction is that you cannot pass it on to your children,” Taché de la Pagerie’s lawyer, Alexandre Varaut, said in a statement.

He said his client’s use of the name “has been common knowledge for several decades.”

The male line of the Tascher de la Pagerie family died out in 1993, but three descendants sued the MP this week, alleging their historical name had been appropriated.

The most famous member of the family was Empress Josephine de Beauharnais, who married Napoleon Bonaparte in 1796. Her full name was Marie Josèphe Rose Tascher de La Pagerie.

Although not illegal under French law, the use of aristocratic surnames can be a tricky subject.

Critics of former President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing criticized his grandfather’s acquisition of the noble-sounding “de” (“de”) particle, although few ever did so for his compatriot Charles de Gaulle.

It was an unwelcome row for Taché de la Pagerie’s party days after it scored a major parliamentary breakthrough.

“We filed a complaint to protect the family name,” Frédéric Pichon, lawyer for the three women, told AFP, adding that a hearing date would be set for July 8.

They claim a symbolic euro in damages, and a fine of 500 euros per day if Emmanuel Taché continues to use their name.

“The fact that he is in the National Rally or La France insoumise or La République en Marche is not the problem,” he said, referring to the far left and centrists of President Emmanuel Macron. .

He says the aristocratic name is rare and notes “risk of confusion in the eyes of the public”, even though the Taché/Tascher spellings are different.

“My clients are from Normandy but live in Paris, and are the only heirs to bear this name since their father died in 1993 – and one of his last wishes was for his name to be protected,” Pichon said.

Emmanuel Taché de la Pagerie did not respond to requests for comment, but told Le Monde that as soon as he was elected, “I have no time to waste on this kind of thing”.

LONDON (AP) — Ousmane Dieng of France has moved to Australia for a season to hone his skills. Nikola Jović stayed at home in Serbia.

The two are expected to meet up in the NBA, however, as they are among the top international prospects in Thursday night’s draft.

Both are versatile 6-foot-10 wingers who just turned 19 after completing their first professional season.

Dieng played for the New Zealand Breakers in Australia’s National Basketball League under its Next Stars program, which has become a hot spot for NBA prospects.. Jović was voted the ABA League’s top prospect following his first full season for club Belgrade Mega, which produced reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokić.

Here’s a look at some of the best international players in the draft:

JOVIĆ

STRENGTHS: Multifaceted scorer with vision for the field and playmaking skills. He averaged 11.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists this season and shot 36.5% at from 3 points.

Jović told The Associated Press that he trained for the Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs – both teams had three first-round picks on Monday – the Denver Nuggets (the 21st and 30th picks), the Chicago Bulls (No. 18), the Minnesota Timberwolves (No. 19) and the Milwaukee Bucks (the 24th pick). He also had workouts scheduled with the Miami Heat, who have the 27th pick, and the champion Golden State Warriors (No. 28).

“My basketball IQ is really good, I’m very good at shooting, as well as passing. These are things that I can immediately translate to the NBA,” Jović said.

CONCERNS: Jović does not have an explosive first step. Going into the season at 200lbs, there were also concerns about his strength, but he has bulked up and now weighs 224lbs.

“I work on my whole body. Core stability is really important to me,” said Jović, who turned 19 this month.

NBA Big Board Director of Scouting Rafael Barlowesaid Jović projects himself as “an average league defender” and said the right fit will be vital: “He could end up in a bad situation like Deni Avdija (Washington Wizards) on a team where he doesn’t have the possibility of managing the ball and it is stuck in a corner.

DIENG

The lanky Frenchman has recovered from a slow start in Australia to show why he could be a potential lottery pick.

STRENGTHS: Perimeter skills, playmaking potential, can defend multiple positions. He averaged 8.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. His 3-point shooting percentage was in the single digits early on, but over the last 12 games of the season it was 35%.

“I just needed to find my rhythm and keep working on my game,” he said.

Dieng has worked with “lots” of teams but declined to name them.

“I can fit into any team because I’m pretty versatile so I can do whatever the coach wants me to do,” he said. “I’m a pretty hard worker and really versatile with good vision and I can do anything on the floor.”

CONCERNS: Consistency of shot and framing. It needs to add volume. At 215 pounds, he’s about 10 pounds heavier than he was at the start of the season, when he looked lost at times.

“The gap between the French third division and the NBL is really big. Everything is faster and everything is more physical,” he said, adding that playing with former NBA players “was really good for me”.

Some other internationals without American experience:

— ISMAEL KAMAGATE: A 6-foot-11, 230-pound center for Paris Basket. The 21-year-old Frenchman averaged 11.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game. He stopped nine shots in a match against Roanne. All-star of the French championship.

– KHALIFA DIOP: Senegal’s last big man, a 7-foot-1, 240-pound center for Gran Canaria in Spain. He averaged 6.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game.

— HUGO BESSON: The 21-year-old full-back played with Dieng for the New Zealand Breakers. The 6-4 Frenchman averaged 13.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. Shot 30.8% from 3-point range.

— GABRIELE PROCIDA: A 6-7 athletic Italian who shot 38.3% from behind the arc for Bologna.

LOOK AHEAD

The 7ft 3in Frenchman Victor Wembanyama might have been the first choice this year – possibly also last year. The 18-year-old will finally be eligible in 2023.

With his height and skill set – ball handling, shooting, rim guarding – Wembanyama is considered a generational talent. He finished with 22 points, eight rebounds and eight blocks against a stacked USA team that included Chet Holmgren in the FIBA ​​Under-19 World Cup final. last July. He plays for ASVEL, Tony Parker’s French team.

“If he maximizes all of his gifts,” Barlowe said, “he could easily be one of the best players of his generation.”

Sterling has one year left on his contract with Manchester City.

A summer move to Chelsea is closing in on signing Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling, according to multiple reports.

The England international has one year left on his current contract, and Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is said to be a ‘big fan’ of the 27-year-old. football journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted on Saturday night that “Chelsea have explored the terms of the deal” but that other potential transfers could be prioritised.

On Sunday, a report on GianlucaDiMarzio.com said the Blues were working on the potential transfer, with a £35million price tag attached to Sterling. Di Marzio tweeted later that Chelsea are “confident to close” the deal.

PREMIER LEAGUE SUMMER TRANSFERS: DEALS DONE SO FAR

Sterling has been at City since 2015, making over 300 appearances in all competitions. The 2021-22 Premier League season saw Sterling spend the least amount of time on the pitch since his maiden campaign at the Etihad Stadium, despite scoring three more league goals (13) than in 2020-21 despite scoring 410 minutes less.

Chelsea’s new ownership group, led by American businessman Todd Boehly, is reportedly looking to make a splash ahead of his first season in charge of the club, and bringing London-born Sterling back to his hometown could be part of this strategy.

NEW YORK — Look for stripes in Paris.

The New York Yankees have told Major League Baseball they want to be one of the teams for the sport’s first games in continental Europe at the Stade de France near Paris in 2025, The Associated Press has been told. two people familiar with planning. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because MLB has not made the details public.

“That’s great. That sounds pretty exciting,” said Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole. “It’s going to be a really special opportunity.”

MLB has yet to make a decision on squads for France games and has focused more on the 2023 schedule, with its new balanced format.

Additionally, the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres have been selected for games in Mexico City next season, one of the people, also on condition of anonymity, said.

The stadium in France, Saint-Denis, was built for the 1998 World Cup and was the site of that year’s Champions League final. It has a football capacity of around 80,000.

New York played MLB games in London, sweeping a two-game series against the Boston Red Sox 17-13, 12-8 at West Ham Olympic Stadium in June 2019. MLB hosted the players the day before the game at the Tower of London.

“We liked it,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “Our guys, right from spring training when they knew it was on the horizon, were all very excited about it. I remember the week before there was real excitement in our locker room about going there. And it was a really, really positive experience for me and I feel like our team. It was a great place and a great break from the season.

The Yankees and Red Sox traveled after Wednesday’s home games and had two days off before the weekend series.

“The most important thing is to be able to have a day off to get on track and adapt to the time zone,” said Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks, who became the first major league player to homer in England.

St. Louis and the Chicago Cubs were scheduled to play in London in 2020, but those games were canceled due to the pandemic, and these are the likely teams for games in London in 2023. The new collective bargaining agreement also calls for games at London in 2024. before the first games of France in 2025 and a return to London in 2026.

MLB’s ABC is considering annual games in Mexico City from 2023-26, an Asian opener in 2024 and a Tokyo opener in 2025.

Previous Tokyo openers include New York Mets-Chicago Cubs (2000), Yankees-Tampa Bay Devil Rays (2004), Red Sox-Oakland Athletics (2008), Seattle Mariners-Athletics (2012) and Mariners-Athletics ( 2019).

MLB has also played international matches in Sydney, Australia (Dodgers-Arizona Diamondbacks in 2014) and Monterrey, Mexico (Mets-San Diego Padres in 1996, Colorado Rockies-Padres in 1999, Padres-Dodgers in 2018, Cardinals -Cincinnati Reds in 2019 and Houston Astros-Los Angeles Angels in 2019).

A San Diego-Arizona series in Mexico City scheduled for April 2020 has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Oumeya Ould Albakaye, leader of the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara in two provinces of Mali and Burkina Faso, was captured during a night operation this week.

French troops operating on the border between Mali and Niger have arrested a senior official of the armed group Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (ISGS), Paris authorities have announced.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the French Armed Forces Ministry said Oumeya Ould Albakaye was captured on the night of June 11-12 by Operation Barkhane – a French military operation deployed in the Sahel region since 2013.

The military action, which began weeks ago, involved the air force and a ground unit, the statement said. The army added that several mobile phones and weapons were seized.

Albakaye was the leader of the ISGS, a group affiliated with the ISIL group (ISIS), in the provinces of Gourma and Oudalan, two regions respectively in Mali and Burkina Faso. The French army indicated that he was also responsible for coordinating a network implementing explosive devices.

ISGS was founded in 2015 by Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahrawi, who was killed last September.

Mali has been rocked by violence for a decade, especially in its border region of Niger and Burkina Faso. In 2013, France intervened to quell a revolt in the north. But the rebels regrouped to attack the country’s volatile center, sparking a full-throated rebellion that President-elect Ibrahim Boubacar Keita was unable to curb.

In August 2020, protests against Keita culminated in a coup by disgruntled Malian army colonels – a move that was followed by a second military coup in May 2021.

From this point on, relations with France steadily deteriorated, propelled by the army’s resistance to setting a quick date to restore civilian rule and by allegations from Bamako that France was inducing regional neighbors to adopt a hard line against his military rule.

Things got worse in 2021 as Mali’s military tightened ties with Moscow, bringing in “military instructors” whom France and its allies called mercenaries hired by the pro-Kremlin group Wagner.

In January of this year, the French ambassador in Bamako was expelled and the following month France announced the withdrawal of its troops from Mali and those of the French Takuba force.

While the army initially pledged to return power to civilians by February 2022, it pushed back the date to March 24 on Monday – a move that has not gone down well with the ECOWAS regional player which imposed sanctions on Mali.

The Liberals have also found their candidate to replace retired David Birnbaum, the MP for D’Arcy McGee’s riding, in the fall general election.

A Liberal government would make changes to Bill 96, but clauses mandating more French classes or more French-as-a-second-language classes in English-speaking CEGEPs will not be dropped, Liberal Leader Dominique Anglade said Saturday.

The Liberals have also found their candidate to replace retired David Birnbaum, the MP for D’Arcy McGee’s riding, in the fall general election.

Senior Liberal sources told the Montreal Gazette on Saturday that Izabel Czuzoj-Shulman will carry the party banner in the riding, which is considered one of the safest Liberal seats in Quebec.

A graduate of McGill University and a lawyer, Czuzoj-Shulman is currently director of operations in the office of federal Liberal House leader Pablo Rodriguez, who is also Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Quebec lieutenant.

But in the halls of a Liberal General Council meeting in downtown Montreal on Saturday, the language issue was the hot topic of discussion, with Anglade defending his party’s handling of Bill 96.

Describing what she would do with the legislation, Anglade said the Liberals would not repeal it or the CEGEP clauses.

“They’re staying,” Anglade said when asked about the controversial changes to the English CEGEP curriculum that the Liberals themselves squeezed into Bill 96. “But we would work with everyone involved in order to make sure everything is done the right way.

“The question is how do we work with the community, how do we sit down with them (to explain the clauses) and that’s what we did.”

Anglade made the comment to reporters after explaining that if elected in the Oct. 3 election, a Liberal government would make changes to Bill 96 revising the Charter of the French Language.

Bill 96 was passed on May 23. Liberal and Parti Québécois MPs voted against for different reasons. The Liberals said it was going too far and the Parti Québécois not far enough. The ruling Coalition Avenir Québec government had enough votes to pass. Québec solidaire also voted in favor, but had to deal with its own internal conflicts after making this decision.

By passing the bill, the clauses that the Liberals themselves inserted into the bill at committee stage became law. Initially, the Liberal amendment would have required students in English CEGEPs to take three of their regular courses in French. This would be in addition to the two basic French as a second language courses they are required to take.

At the last minute and in the face of an angry reaction from the Anglophone community, the Liberals succeeded in convincing the Minister responsible for French, Simon Jolin-Barrette, to amend the bill to say that Anglophones in CEGEPs would have a choice. : either the three French courses or three additional French as a second language courses.

The Liberals offered a mea culpa for their performance with the bill, but some members of the English-speaking community and the CEGEP community are still angry. Minority community support for the Liberals plummeted, and the party has since attempted to mend relations.

Arriving for the council, the first party meeting in Montreal in a long time and which drew 400 people, the Liberal MPs elected in ridings with a high concentration of English-speaking voters conceded on Saturday that they were inundated with calls after the CEGEP decision.

“A lot of calls,” said deputy Robert-Baldwin Carlos Leitão. “As we talk to these people and let them know our position, I am able to air those concerns. At the end of the day, personally in my constituency, I don’t feel as strong a headwind as you seem to suggest.

Pressed that the liberals inserted the clauses into the bill, Leitão said: “We recognize that this was not necessarily our finest hour. We recognize that and have taken steps to correct that and lessen the blow to that measure.

“Law 96 is much more than the CEGEP question. What I’ve said all along that any bill that states in its preamble that it’s invoking the notwithstanding clause preemptively…that’s a major reason for me to vote against this bill.

Asked about competition from new minority rights parties that have begun to sprout in Quebec, Leitäo said, “We live in a democracy. If other political parties want to get in the ring…we live in a democracy.

One such party, Bloc Montreal, organized by former mayoral candidate Balarama Holness, won official recognition from Elections Quebec last week. The second party, the Parti canadien du Québec, organized by Eastern Townships language rights defender Colin Standish, is expected to follow shortly.

Both plan to field candidates to compete with the Liberals, primarily in the Montreal area.

While Leitão has announced he will not run again this fall, Jacques-Cartier MP Greg Kelley is. Kelley told reporters he also received many calls from citizens.

“Absolutely,” Kelley said. “And I spoke to every single one of them. As I said, there are many parents who have said “we are not against having more French in CEGEP, we want our children to be more bilingual, we want them to improve their French”, but the way it is done, there are concerns about how their R-scores will be impacted.

Kelley added that if the Liberals took office, they would adapt the clause problem, perhaps removing the three additional French lessons from the core course load, which would mean that grades would affect the R score by one. student who is essential for university admission.

Content of the article

Released later in the day, the Liberal platform for the next campaign details what the Liberals would do on the language issue and Bill 96.

The platform says the Liberals would give all students the right to attend the CEGEP of their choice, which means caps on access to the English network included in Bill 96 would be removed.

The Liberals would also eliminate the six-month deadline for immigrants to communicate with the state in a language other than French.

The Liberals would also drop the CAQ’s use of the notwithstanding clause to shield the bill from challenge.

And following the Legault government, which offers checks to Quebecers to fight inflation, the platform indicates that the Liberals would put in place a tax cut for the middle class.

Content of the article

There would be a 1.5% tax reduction for Quebecers who earn less than $46,295 per year and also for those who earn between $46,295 and $92,580. The reduction would mean an extra $1,000 in the pockets of these taxpayers. The measure would cost the government $2 billion a year.

On the other hand, the Liberals would create a new tax bracket for Quebecers earning more than $300,000 a year. They would now be taxed at the 27.75 per cent level.

“The cost of living issue is on everyone’s mind,” Anglade told reporters, noting that the CAQ’s check system does not solve the long-term inflation problem. “We recognize that there is a crisis now and that this crisis will drag on forever.”

JEDDAH: Saudi magician Mumdo’s array of illusions, including mind-blowing acts of levitation, captivated audiences at Citywalk’s Global Theatre, one of Jeddah Season’s entertainment areas.

“People can expect an interactive show where I invite them on stage, and delight them with some illusions. I like connecting with the audience, and I think it’s more fun than just playing,” Mumdo told Arab News on Wednesday.

Mumdo has been doing shows for a long time, but this is her first big public event. “It’s different because most of the time I was doing small corporate events,” said the artist, whose full name is Mumdo Marzouki, according to his website mumdo.com. He is also known by the nickname Wizard of Arabia.

“I started when I was eight years old, and I would do little tricks with my friends at school, and then it developed until it became a spectacle. For me it’s not work is my passion. I’m happy when I’m on stage and I’m depressed when I’m at home, so yes, it’s my passion,” said Mumdo.

Mumdo said he was happiest playing and meeting people. He is delighted that his broadcasts will continue until June 11, which will allow him to interact with more than 400 people.

“I’ve been waiting for this all my life. Twenty years ago, I couldn’t do public magic shows in Jeddah, so it’s a dream come true for me, and I hope I’ll be invited to do more shows in the future,” said he declared.

Mumdo said he was inspired by American magician David Copperfield.

“He was my idol and still is, and yes, there are a lot of magicians that I look up to, but he is my favorite. For example, Chris Angel, who I know came to Riyadh Season, is also a very good magician, but I’m more of an old school (performer) as there are two types of schools, modern and classical I try to stay away from technology because if you use it, it’s not really magic,” he added.

Mumdo’s main business is entertainment, and he has been focusing on it lately. He said that 20 years ago his parents were concerned about his career path.

“My parents’ reaction when it was a hobby was to support me a lot, then when it became a profession, they were worried at the time that entertainment was not common in Arabia and was not a profession to earn a living. But now I can say that you can work as a magician,” he said.

Mumdo has its own line of products, including a box containing illusions for children interested in magic. “These toys can teach kids basic skills, and it’s something I used to do when I was eight, which I called the ‘secret box’.”

He said he would continue to support young magic enthusiasts.

Disney’s SVOD plans for French cinemas in Angers ‘Strange World’ – The Hollywood Reporter https://cc87portedoc.com/disneys-svod-plans-for-french-cinemas-in-angers-strange-world-the-hollywood-reporter/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 14:31:27 +0000 https://cc87portedoc.com/disneys-svod-plans-for-french-cinemas-in-angers-strange-world-the-hollywood-reporter/ Disney’s decision to scrap a French theatrical release for strange world and putting Don Hall’s animated action-adventure film directly on its Disney+ streaming platform in the territory has French exhibitors in turmoil.

Disney’s decision to scrap a French theatrical release for strange world and putting Don Hall’s animated action-adventure film directly on its Disney+ streaming platform in the territory has French exhibitors in turmoil.

The National Federation of French Cinema (FNCF) protested against this decision on Wednesday, calling it a “lost choice for everyone” which “would seriously damage the economy of cinemas and the sector as a whole”.

strange world was due to hit French cinemas on November 23, but Disney pulled the release, citing the country’s strict windowing regulations, which require a 17-month period between a film’s theatrical release and its platform debut. streaming in France.

The regulations, which Disney called “onerous” and “anti-consumer,” also limit that first VOD window to just five months. After that, the film transitions to an exclusive 14-month free-to-air TV window. Only then, 36 months after its theatrical debut, can the film return to Disney+. This compares to an average window of around 45 days between theatrical release and the SVOD arc in most territories around the world.

France changed its windowing laws in January, reducing the window for cinema to streaming from 36 months to “just” 15 months, provided distributors invest a portion of their revenue in French film content. Netflix accepted the French agreement. Not Disney.

In a statement, Disney said the new regulations ignore how consumer behavior “has changed over the past few years” and that the extended window puts the company “at increased risk of piracy.”

The FNCF accuses Disney of using strange worldas a bargaining chip to try to get better terms when the windowing rules are renegotiated on January 23.

But instead of “making spectators and cinemas the collateral victims of these disputes”, the group asked the CNC, the national body for French cinema, to organize mediation between the stakeholders, including cinemas, studios, streamers and French TV channels.

France’s windowing law isn’t the only regulatory headache for Disney+. Like all streamers operating in Europe, Disney+ must abide by the continent’s 30% quota laws, which require at least a third of all titles on a streaming service to be European.

A recent study by London-based research firm Ampere Analysis found that Netflix was already at or above the 30% quota in nearly all of its major European markets, and HBO Max was close, with over 25% of European content in its regional footprint. , but that Disney+ was far behind, averaging around 10%. Disney, however, is stepping up its European Originals to make up the difference.

Stuttgart (Germany) (AFP) – Before continuing his preparations on grass, Andy Murray calculated on Monday the last exploit of Rafael Nadal on clay.

The 36-year-old Spaniard beat Norway’s Casper Ruud 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 in the Roland Garros final on Sunday to extend two records. It was not only his 22nd Grand Slam title, but also his 14th French Open.

“Winning 14 Grand Slams in one place is amazing,” Murray said in Stuttgart.

“There is hardly any player on the Tour who will have the opportunity to play Roland Garros 14 times, let alone win it.”

Nadal won his first Roland Garros title in 2005. In the 17 seasons that followed, he lost just three matches at Roland Garros and was sent off once with a wrist injury.

Murray used the sport’s latest prodigy, Nadal’s compatriot Carlos Alcaraz, for comparison.

“Alcaraz is 19 now, so he would have to win it every time (until he is 33) to achieve that. I just don’t see that happening.”

Murray, who reached the Roland Garros final in 2016, was also impressed by Iga Swiatek, who extended her singles winning streak to 35 matches by winning the women’s final.

“It was just an amazing achievement for Rafa – and Iga Swiatek,” Murray said.

The Scot makes his ATP event debut in Stuttgart after stepping onto the pitches last week at the Challenger-level event in Surbiton, London, where he reached the semi-finals before losing to the American Dennis Kudla.

The former world number one, ranked 68th, will tread the lawns of the Weissenhof Club on Tuesday against Australian qualifier Christopher O’Connell.

“I beat him in a very tight game in Dubai, it’s going to be tough,” Murray said.

The 35-year-old, who survived a mass shooting at his primary school in Dunblane, Scotland, when he was nine, has spoken out about gun violence again.

“(When) it happened, we changed the gun laws and there were no more mass shootings in the UK.

“There have been over 200 mass shootings in the United States this year. They should probably do something to change that culture.”

Murray said that while he would love to play doubles with British US Open champion Emma Raducanu at Wimbledon, the odds were against it unless he suffered a singles defeat early on.

“British tennis fans would appreciate that, but I don’t know if it’s going to happen.

“Only if the singles don’t work. It’s quite difficult for me to play the singles right now,” said Murray, who has been plagued with injury issues in recent years, particularly in his hip.

Murray will contest his 45th event on grass, but only the second on the surface outside Great Britain.

He said the lawns in Stuttgart – originally curated by Wimbledon experts ahead of the first edition in 2015 – are playing differently than last week at Surbiton.

“It was old school pitches, lower rebound, very fast. But it was a good start, hopefully I can continue here.”
