Jesse Ryder’s withdrawal from the New
Zealand A tour to the United Arab Emirates
has significantly reduced his World Cup
The gifted but erratic lefthander pulled the
pin on what amounted to a last chance to
press his Cup claims yesterday, citing personal
reasons — understood to be relationship
issues — after missing a flight from D unedin
to Christchurch for a domestic T20 game at
New Zealand Cricket ’s general manager
national selection Bruce Edgar would not rub
Ryder’s name out of calculations altogether
yesterday, but admitted the player’s decision
had made it more difficult for the national
selectors — Edgar and national coach Mike
Hesson — to pick the troubled batsman.
“The waters have been muddied somewhat,”
Edgar said of Ryder’s possible Cup selection.
“ We respect his decision, but to be honest
from a selection perspective the whole point
of the A tour was to get more information
about Jesse in the team environment and
unfortunately we’re not going to see the
Ryder’s ability to handle himself off the
field, after a career blighted by several drink-
related indiscretions in the past few years, is
an element in whether the selectors will pick
him for the World Cup.
Ryder, who last played for New Zealand on
January 31, has a contract with the Melbourne
Renegades in Australia’s Big Bash League,
which starts on December 18. He is expected
to play four Ford Trophy 50-over games from
late December for Otago. That amounts to
his only worthwhile 50-over lead-up before
the Cup squad is named on January 8.
Otago Cricket chief executive Ross Dykes
said yesterday that it was hoped Ryder, 30,
would be available for Otago’s next Georgie
Pie T20 game against Canterbury in
Dunedin on Thursday.
Dykes confirmed Ryder’s team-mates
wanted him to join them in Christchurch on
a later flight in time for Sunday ’s game.
“He was really keen to get up there and play,
but wasn’t sure whether he could do himself
and the team justice.”
In an ironic twist, Otago had their first
win for the competition, by one run, over
Canterbury without Ryder.
Edgar said they might not replace Ryder in
the group flying to D ubai tomorrow, because
they had sufficient cover from the test squad
now playing Pakistan there.
Novak Djokovic has set his sights
on finally ending his long wait to be
crowned French Open champion next
year and complete a career grand slam.
Djokovic brought the curtain down
on his 2014 campaign in unexpected
fashion on Sunday by playing a hastily
arranged exhibition match against
Andy Murray at London’s O2 Arena
after Roger Federer pulled out of their
scheduled ATP Tour Finals decider just
before the match was due to start.
Federer’s shock withdrawal meant
Djokovic was crowned Tour Finals
champion for the third successive year,
ending a triumphant year that included
his second Wimbledon title and the
year-end world No 1 ranking for the
third time in four years.
But it was hardly a day to remember
for the 27-year-old, who admitted
feeling awkward when presented with
the trophy in front of a 17,500-capacity
crowd who had just seen their hopes of
a fascinating duel between the world’s
top two unexpectedly dashed.
Instead of dwelling on one of the
stranger days of his career, Djokovic
was quick to turn his thoughts to 2015,
when he hopes to at last end nine-time
champion Rafael Nadal’s reign as the
king of Paris clay.
The French Open is the only major
title missing from Djokovic’s grand
slam collection having lost the 2012
and 2014 finals to Nadal.
“Roland Garros is and was and still
will be one of the biggest goals that
I have. I’ll keep on trying, of course,”
Djokovic said, who has four Australian
Open crowns, two at Wimbledon and
one US Open triumph.
“Any grand slam win is another page
in the history books of this sport. Right
now, I’m at my pinnacle. I feel physically
very fit. I’m very motivated to keep on
playing on a very high level.
“So as long as it’s like that, I’m going
to try to use these years in front of me
fight for the biggest titles in the sport.”
Before Djokovic turns his attention to
2015’s first major, January’s Australian
Open, he will gladly resume his new
role as a father to baby Stefan, who was
born only a few weeks ago.

As a young schoolgirl,
Suzanne Young broke
her nose playing rugby
Now she is breaking
glass ceilings by
becoming the most
powerful woman in the
Young was yesterday
announced as the
organisation’s new chief
She replaces the highly
regarded Jim Doyle, who
quit in June so he could return to New
Zealand as boss of the Warriors.
Before assuming her role as Dave
Smith’s No 2, Young had previously
worked for Qantas, the Commonwealth
Bank and L eighton Holdings.
Asked at a media conference if her
appointment was part of an attempt to
end the apparently “blokey ” culture of
the NRL, Young said male-dominated
work environments were hardly new
“I’ve worked in some very blokey
industries (such as) Qantas, L eightons,”
she told reporters in Sydney.
“I don’t think that (environment) will
be a detriment at all.”
She said her appointment was simply
the newest addition to the female
participants within the sport.
“There are lots of women who are
managers of teams, who are coaches of
teams; volunteers who do canteen duty,”
“I’m not the first woman to be involved
in the league and I hope to make a
significant contribution just as they have
Forced to address the recent
controversy over suspended South
Sydney player Kirisome Auva’a, and her
stance on violence against women, Young
said: “I certainly don’t condone it.”
In her first public outing as Doyle’s
successor, she was also forced to defend
the emphasis on her status as a mother
— rather than the specifics of her
professional achievements — detailed
in the NRL statement announcing her
“It ’s on my Linked In profile. It’s not
that hard to find,” she said.
Those facts were later included on an
expanded media release, issued after a
“production error” curtailed the first.
A fan of the game, Young has not
had any experience in rugby league
administration, but was one of Surf Life
Saving Australia’s first independent
directors in 2010. “Sport is part of my
DNA,” she said. — AAP
