I went from despair to joy because someone believed in a young man from Five Cays. I hope to be a role model for all the young men of Five Cays who are so often forgotten.”When the king helped Nehemiah, who was downcast and broken to fulfill his dream of leading the men of his nation in the rebuilding the wall of Israel, which was the heritage of their forefathers, it lead to a rebuilt people pulled from degradation and shame.Mike Stolow may not be a royalty as modern times would define it, but his king sized heart and his king sized gift to a young man on a mission to build his life as an example of what is possible, even out of Five Cays, is as regal and resplendent as it gets.“First of all, I would like to Thank God for his blessings upon my life, also I would like to thank my Family and friends and every member of the community for their support. The opportunity that Bugaloos has brought before me goes to show that no matter who you are once you are focused and determined opportunities will come your way.”La’Shano Pierre of Five Cays was sad because he had gotten some terrible news; but he cleaned himself up and mustered the courage to face the day.  Young La’Shano went to work, and through his grit, earned much more than a day’s pay, he earned the respect of this journalist, our organization and even more significantly at the time… the admiration of his mentor, employer and sponsor: #MichaelStolow who gave the kind of gift only a king could give.“I would once again like to thank the owner and the team at Bugaloos as well as the members of my community. Thank you for your support and the opportunity you have given me. I assure you that I won’t disappoint.”And as we pray for La’Shano, a budding Business Manager, to continue to do well at university in the United Kingdom, we are certain that just as he has promised, he will not disappoint.

The 37-year-old Swiss legend will appear in his 54th quarter-final of a Grand Slam, achieving another piece of history as he matched American great Chris Evert’s record.

He is yet to drop a set in the competition. He defeated Leonardo Mayer 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 in the Round of 16 to march into the quarters. The three years’ absence from Roland Garros doesn’t seem to have affected the 2009 champion as he has been playing quite smoothly. After being doubtful about his own success before the begining of the tournament, he is now among the contenders for winning the title. Stan Wawrinka.Adam Pretty/Getty Images.On the other hand, Wawrinka has had his own problems. He went out of the game with a knee injury that threatened his career after 2017 Wimbledon. As a result, he slipped outside the top 250 and also suffered a first-round defeat at last year’s French Open. But he has made a comeback and is currently ranked 28th. Wawrinka had a tough time beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in his fourth round clash. The final score of the tough contest was 7-6, 5-7, 6-4, 3-6, 8-6.Federer is leading 22-3 in head-to-head between these two Swiss players. The 2009 champion also has beaten Wawrinka in their last six meetings. Interestingly, the latter is the last player who recorded a victory over his compatriot at this Grand Slam, in the 2015 edition. The victory came in straight sets and eventually led to Wawrinka winning the French Open title.Global TV listingsFrance: France TV SportUSA: NBCUnited Kingdom: iTVAustralia: Fox SportsCanada: TSNSpain: EurosportJapan: WowowChina: CCTVlast_img read more
