 With the 20th Grand Slam title just won at Roland Garros, Serena Williams is very close to Steffi Graf’s 22 championship title to become the greatest female tennis player in history.

Indeed, Serena’s outstanding accomplishments and performance despite being 33 years old are truly impressive. But not only that, many ideas that Serena deserves to be the best athlete in the United States.

Actually, the word “best” is not really appropriate because it is something that is difficult to measure and compare. But it must be admitted that the dominance of Serena is almost absolute and no American athlete can approach that.

Serena has become the oldest woman in tennis history to hold the No.1 position in the world (for 2 consecutive years). And this seems to be going on as she doesn’t have a real rival to challenge. The 33-year-old has won the last three Grand Slam titles in a row. Since the beginning of the season, she has won 32 matches and lost only 1.

At Wimbledon later this month, Serena will aim to win the 21st biggest title. Throughout its career, Serena has spent 245 weeks holding the No. 1 position in the world. New York Times journalist Harvey Araton once compared his Williams sister to LeBron James, a basketball player well known for his dominance. But Serena played alone, and Lebron played team sport.

But will fans really be happy for Serena when women’s tennis is rated boring because of her excellence? Any tournament that Serena participated and she was not injured, all predictions that she would win the championship. Serena has no real opponents. Maria Sharapova is always inferior when they meet. Victoria Azarenka has potential but now is in a form of injury. Petra Kvitova, Simona Halep, Agnieszka Radwanska are difficult to be compared. The only person who could easily cause Serena trouble was Justin Henin, who had long since racked the racket.

Coming to study and live in the US, how will you witness American sports enthusiasts?

1. Baseball

This is a sport that reminds me more of my homeland than any other sport for Americans. Not only for entertainment, professional baseball is considered a sport by the Americans as a national pastime game of the United States. Although the game has been greatly improved from its origins in the rounders game, baseball is defaulted as an American creation.

2. Basketball

Basketball was known in the US in the late 1800s by a physical education teacher. Basketball is one of the top favorite sports in the US, more than what the whole world calls “king sports”. In the US, the number of basketball players is the largest, with nearly 25 million, almost twice the number of football players. The television viewership of basketball is also nearly half that of football.

3. Hockey

Ice hockey is a team sport played on the ice, in which participants use their skateboarding sticks to hit the ball into the opponent’s net. Ice hockey is most common in areas that are cold enough to form a seasonal ice sheet with a natural, safe stiffness.

That is also the reason why this subject is popular in regions with cold weather of the United States. There are 30 teams in the professional league, called the National Hockey League – this is also the top prize for male athletes.

4. American football

American football is very popular at the high school, college, and professional levels (called the National Football League) with everyone around the country. The top soccer competitions of the year are usually held on the first Sunday in February and are one of the biggest social events of the year.

There are also a number of other sports that are played and viewed throughout the United States, including rugby, lacrosse, wrestling, mixed martial arts (MMA) …

There is a strange martial art in the world that thrives in prisons and reeducation camps in the US but little known is Jailhouse Rock.

In addition to being mostly confined to the United States, Jailhouse Rock’s movements looked very odd, so the subject was still known by quite a few martial arts enthusiasts around the world.

Jailhouse Rock has caused a lot of controversy surrounding whether this is an official martial art or just a fighting style with its own characteristics.

This martial art is widely developed in many prisons and re-education camps throughout the United States. The most important system of Jailhouse Rock includes 52 punching techniques, quite similar to boxing and Savate martial arts of France but the movement is much more flexible, sometimes twisting like dancing but very effective in practice.

Jailhouse Rock’s technique is richer than boxing in addition to boxing, it also uses some other parts of the body to attack such as pillows, heads, shoulders and a number of low kicks, sweeping stones are compared with the doctrine of Wing Chun is right.

Jailhouse Rock’s forte is easy to practice due to simple and highly improvised moves, even this subject has some features quite similar to Krav Maga, boxing. Initially only being widely developed in prisons, but thanks to the very high efficiency in real combat, the Jailhouse Rock fighting system gradually became a recognized martial art.

Among the famous figures in the United States, including the legend Mike Tyson or Zab Judah used to love Jailhouse Rock. Even some cult celebrities in the showbiz world like actor Larenz Tate and rapper Ludacris also practice this discipline to apply in their cinematographic and musical works.

So far, even experts in the US have not been able to determine when Jailhouse Rock was born. According to some documents, this discipline was born from the fierce battles in New York prison since the 1970s.

During this period, Black Belt magazine published photos and videos introducing Jailhouse Rock’s 52 techniques. Immediately, it attracted great attention from the American people. A lot of people have spent time practicing this subject because it is considered an interesting fighting type.

In a short time, Jailhouse Rock was developed in the east coast of the United States and especially flourished in New York.

But according to Dennis Newsome, a researcher and master of Jailhouse Rock, the martial art was originally invented by the African-American community in the 17th or 18th centuries.

They were originally slaves subjected to repression by white men, so they built a battle system to protect themselves.

At first, Jailhouse Rock was only secretly learned. It is likely that this is the reason why the movements of this martial art have similarities with some types of African dance, to disguise during practice.

School sports in America are among the strongest in the world. However, statistics show that the number of children aged 6 to 12 years competing in the country has dropped by nearly 8% in the last decade.

School sports in America are among the strongest in the world. But a new study published last week by the American Association of Sports and Fitness Industry and the Aspen Research Institute shows a pessimistic signal. The number of children aged 6 to 12 competing has dropped nearly 8% in the past decade, according to The Washington Post.

According to the above statistics, in 2008 nearly 45% of children (6 to 12 years old) played on a regular sports team. This year, this figure is only 37%. That’s one of the three ominous trends for young sports in the US: fewer people join, rising costs and poor coaches.

USA Today newspaper last week led the case of the couple Judy Carter and Dwight Davis to see that, students who want to play sports well, the cost is not small.

Mr. and Mrs. Davis recently flew from the US to Scotland, which is said to be the home of golf. The couple spent a total of $4,800 for 10 days following the progress of their son Ian Davis – turning 14 in August. He participated in the European golf championship for American children – U.S. Kids Golf European Championship 2017 – and finished in 32nd when competing at the age of 13.

Davis and his wife had high expectations for Ian Davis to play the game at the age of 7, and Mr. Dwight estimated that the investment for his children should be at six digits. Davis – now a vice president of a global information technology company – admits to sacrificing a lot, such as not traveling a lot and withdrawing about $400,000 in his retirement fund.

Recently, they sold their house in Dallas to move to live in Orlando, Florida. This is a way to help Ian improve skills at Bishops Gate Golf Academy, where tuition is about 60,000 USD.

The Davis story typical of the expensive cost to develop athletic ability.

After Chelsea’s victory over Burnley 4-2 in the away field in which young American star Christian Pulisic brightly scored a spectacular hat-trick, Lampard said: “It’s worth helping Pulisic find the best for Chelsea”.

Pulisic got off to a rough start because the pressure to replace the departed star was Eden Hazard. In the midst of this, the American player was also burdened by the talent comparison that was commensurate with the record transfer fee of £58 million (the highest in American football history) when he parted from Borussia Dortmund to come to Chelsea in earlier this year or not, but will only play officially this summer.

Therefore, after eager to prove his ability but immediately met a staggering defeat early in the season when Chelsea was defeated by Manchester United (M.U) to 4-0.

After this match, Lampard coach almost did not use Pulisic, even making him could be forgotten because at the same time other young stars of Chelsea such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount or Callum Hudson-Odoi, Michy Batshuayi and the whole bridge veteran Willian is back to play great to help Chelsea recover from the defeat of MU

The American press therefore worried that his star would become a wrongful contract at Chelsea, and urged Pulisic to consider leaving the winter transfer window in order to get more opportunities to play.

However, Lampard coach actually had a plan to silently revive Pulisic, a player whom his teammates and the British and American press called “Captain America” ​​based on the name of a hit movie. Lampard recently launched Pulisic back from the sidelines, and achieved his intentions as in the 1-0 win over Ajax midweek. It was Pulisic who helped Batshuayi to score the only goal in this match.

In the match against Burnley, Chelsea led 4-0 to 86 minutes, then suddenly the opponent took 2 goals back. Fortunately, the match time ran out so the home team could not turn the situation.

According to Lampard Coach: “These are 2 goals that came from our negligence. Of course, I will have to talk to my players about this incident, and make sure it doesn’t happen again. But this does not stop the assessment of Chelsea having a great match away from home, and the great shine of Pulisic.
