SHARE PODCAST:      

Slinger Bag Inc. (OTC:SLBG) has announced a new partnership with world renowned tennis coach Nick Bollettieri as the latter joins the brand in the role of Head Coach. With some 60 years in the industry, Bollettieri has coached the likes of Andre Agassi, Boris Becker, Monica Seles and Serena Williams. According to the press release, "Bollettieri joins the company in a three-year deal, bringing an unrivalled knowledge of tennis whilst sharing Slinger's dedication to helping players improve their game. In his new role, he will be a major contributor to the 'Coaches Corner' section of slingerbag.com providing insights into practice drills using Slinger, coaching and match tips and general tennis education articles." Bollettieri commented:

"The key to being successful in tennis is consistency. Consistency is built on repetition. Slinger Bag is so easy to transport and set up that it's available 24/7 for practice and drills. It's the first ball launcher to appeal to the masses and is the perfect tennis partner to build consistency and improve your game."

"The versatility of Slinger Bag's innovative launcher allows tennis players of every level to practice whenever and wherever they are. In my role at Slinger, we will be taking the fundamental concepts that I have used to train some of the top players in the world over the last 30+ years and bring them to Slinger Bag users worldwide."

V.F. Corporation (NYSE:VFC) is conducting a review of strategic alternatives for the occupational portion of its Work segment, which primarily includes nine brands and businesses: Red Kap®, VF Solutions®, Bulwark®, Workrite®, Walls®, Terra®, Kodiak®, Work Authority® and Horace Small®. Steve Rendle, VF's Chairman, President and CEO, explained:

"Driving and optimizing our portfolio continues to be a top strategic priority for VF, and exploring strategic alternatives for our occupational Work brands is the natural next step in that process. Divesting these brands would leave VF with a simplified portfolio of higher-growth, consumer-focused brands, while providing financial flexibility to fuel further strategic initiatives and enhance shareholder value."

Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTC:GMBL) has announced the release of an upgrade to its esports wagering platform VIE.gg. The upgrade brings additional betting options, and "significant content enhancements, including real-time streaming and event coverage." Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group, commented:

Combined with our unsurpassed transparency as a result of our status as a fully reporting public company, we believe VIE.gg is strongly positioned for success in 2020."

49ers Victory on Sunday Puts Them Up Against Kansas City for Super Bowl LIV, 2019 Australian Open Women’s Singles Champ Osaka Posts Win Today as Men’s Singles Champ Djokovic Vies to Defend Title

Following a 37-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2012, where they will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Miami. The 49ers' wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has played in two Super Bowls previously, once as a rookie in 2011, where his Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the Packers, and again in 2015, when he won with the Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers. Sanders told ESPN's Josina Anderson in an interview:

"Obviously, this week is going to be big because when we get to Miami, it's going to be a frenzy, so this week, we've got to practice like it is Super Bowl week just so we can stay focused. Then next week still have that same mentality, but we know it's going to be crazy out there. All the times that I've been, that first week was the most important week, so that's my message to the guys."

The Australian Open is well underway with superstars Angelique Kerber, Simona Halep, and last year's champion Naomi Osaka scoring victories today in the Women's Singles. On the Men's Singles side, South African Kevin Anderson posted a win today, along with Russian Daniil Medvedev. Last year's Men's Singles champion Novak Djokovic faces Japan's Tatsuma Ito later today.
