        "body": "LONDON (Reuters) - Emma Raducanu said she was going to \"just rock up\" at Wimbledon after her preparations were ravaged by injury but the British teenager was all business once she walked out on to Centre Court on Monday, showing steely determination and court craft.\n\nShe may be the U.S. Open champion but with not even a full set of grasscourt play under her belt this year, plus a side injury that left her participation in doubt until three days ago and with the pressure of being the home nation's latest \"Big Hope\", it was never going to be a cruise on her first appearance on Centre Court.\n\nBelgian Alison van Uytvanck, who won two grasscourt events in her preparation, was by no means a first-round patsy but Raducanu overcame some early waywardness to work out how to deal with her awkward opponent in a way that belied her limited experience.\n\nHer 6-4 6-4 victory made it five first-round wins in her five Grand Slam appearances -- a timely reminder that even though she is 19 and was virtually unknown when she came to Wimbledon as a wild card last year, she knows what she is doing.\n\n\"I was very pleased with the way I sort of adapted to everything that she threw at me,\" Raducanu said. \"Alison's game is really awkward. She has great hands; she'll chip one back and it will just die on the floor. Then she'll hit one and it's really flat and fast. You don't really know what's going to come at you.\n\n\"So there were definitely some tricky moments but I held some really tough service games.\"\n\nJust as Raducanu is gaining experience from her whirlwind year, opponents are learning more about her. In contrast to her free-wheeling, nothing-to-lose hitting en route to the U.S. Open title, she is now being forced to learn on the job.\n\n\"When no one knows you, no one knows your game... that is something that I experienced in a positive way last summer,\" she said. \"Since then I think that people have definitely watched me and raised their level and raised their game and played some great tennis. I haven't necessarily played badly in a lot of the matches I've lost.\"\n\nShe certainly seemed to enjoy her first taste of Centre Court, saying she loved the energy of the venue she described as the most special in the sport.\n\n\"Big matches and big occasions are the ones that I really sort of get the most fired up for,\" she said. \"It's definitely a different feeling. I love playing on the big stages, I really thrive on that.\"\n\n(Reporting by Mitch Phillips, editing by Clare Fallon)",

        "body": "LONDON (Reuters) - Novak Djokovic dropped a set on the way to the second round at Wimbledon on Monday and did not look like the Mr Consistency who has become the first player to win 80 singles matches in each of the Grand Slam tournaments.\n\nBut his opponents know that once the Serbian finds his 2022 grass legs, they will more than likely follow first-round victim Kwon Soo-woo out of the event.\n\nDjokovic had played no competitive tennis on grass coming into the tournament and ground out a 6-3 3-6 6-3 6-4 victory against the lively South Korean.\n\n\"I did not start or did not play at my best but I think when I needed to find the right shots, I did,\" Djokovic said. \"I know I can do better.\"\n\nThe top seed won three out of four Grand Slam titles last year but lost in the U.S. Open final in September then caused controversy when he arrived to defend his Australian Open title only to be held and then deported because he was not vaccinated against COVID-19.\n\nHe then lost in the French Open to eventual winner Rafael Nadal who moved ahead of the Serbian on 22 titles to Djokovic's 20. The Australian debacle lost him some popularity.\n\n\"I've experienced something that I've never experienced in my life in Australia. So this post-Australian period of next several months was challenging emotionally for me because of a lot of different factors,\" Djokovic said.\n\nBut he said his motivation was still high and stepping on to Centre Court at the start of his title defence was \"a unique and special feeling\".\n\n\"In terms of my motivation on the court, fulfilling my everyday chores, trying to win more titles and be one of the contenders for more Grand Slams, it hasn't changed much,\" he said.\n\n\"But... the sensation coming back on the court with everything that happened post-Australia, particularly first few tournaments, was different. It was a different feel. Not very pleasant to me.\"\n\nHe said he no longer felt bad stepping on court.\n\nThe Centre Court crowd greeted the six-times champion politely but not effusively on Monday. They urged on the underdog Kwon as expected but many were waiting for the later matches featuring British competitors. Djokovic was happy, though.\n\n\"I was very pleasantly surprised, I mean, in a positive way. I felt support. Of course, the crowd was engaged in the match. They supported both players. I thought they were very fair to me.\"\n\nWith a first grasscourt win of the season under his belt, Djokovic knows his game and confidence will improve along with his chances of closing in on second seed Nadal's Grand Slam record.\n\n\"It's really more about feeling on the court that I have, the movement, timing, and just trying to get better rhythm overall in every shot,\" he said.\n\n\"It's always going to be a bit rusty I think the first couple matches for me.\"\n\nDjokovic next faces Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis, ranked 79 in the world, who beat Kamil Majchrzak of Poland in straight sets. It is a match designed to polish off the last of the rust.\n\n(Reporting by Clare Lovell; editing by Clare Fallon)",

        "body": "LONDON, June 27 (Xinhua) -- College students from across the United Kingdom (UK) showcased their command of the Chinese language through speeches and cultural performances in the regional final of the 21st \"Chinese Bridge\" Chinese Proficiency Competition held at the University College London on Monday.\n\nThe contest consisted of four parts: a prepared speech on the theme \"One World, One Family;\" a knowledge quiz about China; a three-minute talent show; and an impromptu quiz.\n\nWilliam Hart, a student who majors in medicine at the University of Manchester, finished first among 10 contestants after his fluent Chinese, smooth delivery and broad knowledge of the Chinese culture impressed the judges.\n\nTogether with three other contestants, he will represent the UK in the \"Chinese Bridge\" global finals later this year.\n\n\"Mastering the (Chinese) language and appreciating the (Chinese) culture will certainly help you better understand the past, present and future of China,\" Chinese Ambassador to the UK Zheng Zeguang said in his opening remarks.\n\n\"We all share the duty to expand cooperation between China and the UK,\" he said, adding that countries must make concerted efforts to tackle challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.\n\nTo highlight the importance of learning Chinese, Professor Alistair Fitt, vice chancellor of Oxford Brookes University, quoted Nelson Mandela, the late president of South Africa: \"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.\"\n\nLaunched in 2002, \"Chinese Bridge\" is an annual competition aimed at arousing the enthusiasm of students in various countries to learn Chinese and strengthen the world's understanding of the Chinese language and culture.",

        "title": "Feature: Chinese language interpreters facilitate Zimbabwe-China mutual understanding",
        "body": "HWANGE, Zimbabwe, June 27 (Xinhua) -- Speaking through a walkie-talkie, Panashe Shayawabaya - a Chinese language interpreter - delivered instructions to a local employee from a Chinese supervisor at a coal mining site.\n\nInside an open cast pit nearby, deafening sounds from excavators and dump trucks reverberated throughout the pit as the machines extracted and hauled chunks of rock from the earth to expose the coal hidden underneath.\n\nShayawabaya is one of a few Chinese-speaking Zimbabweans who are playing a critical role in facilitating Zimbabwe-China mutual understanding through their Chinese language skills.\n\n\"I spent about eight years in China, and during my course of that time in China, I learned a lot of Chinese culture, Chinese history, in terms of Chinese food, likes and dislikes,\" Shayawabaya told Xinhua.\n\nZimbabwe is witnessing an influx of Chinese investments. Language barriers and cultural differences between the two sides mean locals who understand both sides linguistically and culturally are in huge demand.\n\nSeveral schools across the country have also started offering Chinese language lessons to feed the growing demand for the language.\n\nShayawabaya, who is an interpreter at Zhong Jian Investments, one of the largest coal mining companies in Hwange, Matabeleland North Province, said language is an important way to connect the two sides.\n\n\"The languages and culture are quite different in Zimbabwe and China. So during my stay in China, I learned a lot in terms of negotiations, and how to speak and respect other cultures,\" he added.\n\nGeorge Chiremba, another Chinese language interpreter who stayed in China for six years, said interpreters play a big role in facilitating mutual understanding between China and Zimbabwe.\n\n\"Basically our role is to try and bridge the gap in communication between the Chinese investors and the Zimbabwean workforce. But it also goes across into understanding the two cultures, and the difference in the cultures so that you make sure that communication is not lost due to those differences,\" he said.\n\nSince language and culture have a complex relationship, the translation goes beyond vocal interpretations, Chiremba said.\n\n\"So the role includes more than just being able to speak the language, it also involves understanding the culture of the Zimbabwean people and the culture of the Chinese people,\" he added.\n\nCulture and language are inextricably linked, hence the importance of people who understand both cultures, said Chiremba.\n\n\"The difference between cultures plays a major role in communicating. The politeness, the rudeness, the message being carried across, if you understand the culture, and understand the tones, and how the message is being said, you can better translate to the person of a different culture what the person means,\" said Chiremba.\n\nShayawabaya said learning a language goes beyond the classroom, it also involves learning the behavior of the society and its customs.\n\nShingirirai Alufasi, a translator at Zimbabwe Zhong Xing Electric Energy in Hwange, said without interpreters, cooperation between Chinese investors and locals would be difficult.\n\n\"In terms of being a Chinese interpreter, it's very useful. Why? Because here in Zimbabwe most people don't understand Chinese, and many Chinese people can't speak in English, so for someone who is an interpreter, it is very crucial to be in such an area like this,\" he said.\n\nAs China's global economic footprint expands, the demand for Chinese language interpretation services has expanded spectacularly.\n\nIn Zimbabwe, China remains the biggest foreign investor, with investments from the Asian country across sectors including agriculture, mining, and energy.\n\nTrade between the two countries reached close to 1.9 billion U.S. dollars in 2021, a 35 percent jump from the 2020 figures, according to the statistics released by the Zimbabwean government.",

        "body": "HARARE, June 27 (Xinhua) -- Zimbabwe will slightly lower its economic growth forecast for 2022 following economic challenges that have been spawned in part by the Russia-Ukraine conflict, Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube said Monday.\n\nThe minister had initially forecasted the economy to grow by 5.5 percent this year but he said this will now be lowered when he presents the mid-term fiscal policy statement in July.\n\n\"As is the tradition, we are going to announce the revision during our mid-term budget review statement in July, suffice to say that we will announce a slightly lower growth rate than the 5.5 percent,\" Ncube said during a press briefing to announce economic measures to stabilize prices.\n\nHe said the revision has been necessitated by the disruptions that are happening in the economy seen in rising inflation, and food and fuel prices.\n\nThe country's annual inflation surged to 191.6 percent in June from 131.7 percent the previous month, while monthly inflation accelerated to 30.7 percent from 21 percent in May.\n\nWhile the economy was already beset with its own challenges that include an insufficient foreign currency, which has led to the sharp depreciation of the Zimbabwean dollar in recent months, the Russia-Ukraine conflict has also worsened the country's economic situation through increased food and fuel prices.\n\n\"There is uncertainty everywhere in the global economy. The global economy is facing challenges around inflation, food, fuel and fertilizer. And Zimbabwe is no different,\" the minister said.\n\nHe said the measures that he announced Monday to increase grain supply on the local market, including allowing millers to freely import wheat, as well as cushioning civil servants from the high cost of living by increasing their salaries and giving them non-monetary benefits, were all aimed at tackling the economic challenges and bring relief to citizens.\n\nNcube said the government will promulgate a Statutory Instrument (SI) to give legal effect to the multi-currency system prevailing in the economy, which came after the government in 2020 allowed people with free funds to use their foreign currency to pay for goods and services for easier transactions following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.\n\nSince then, the U.S. dollar has been circulating alongside the Zimbabwean dollar which was reintroduced in 2019 after the government banned the use of the multiple currency regime that had been in existence since 2009.\n\n\"We are basically entrenching the multi-currency system that is already in place. We want to advise the public that the use of the U.S. dollar will continue for the duration of the NDS 1 period. We want to provide assurance that there is no reversal of policy around this measure that we have adopted. It will continue and we want to buttress it,\" he said.\n\nThe National Development Strategy 1, running from 2021-2025, is Zimbabwe's new economic blueprint that aims to achieve an economic growth rate of 5 percent per annum to catapult the country into an upper-middle-income economy by 2030.\n\nGeorge Guvamatanga, the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Finance, said the current legislative framework does not fully entrench the use of the U.S. dollar, hence the need for the new SI. He said the Zimbabwean government does not have sufficient U.S. dollars to sustain dollarization, hence the use of both the Zimbabwean dollar and U.S. dollar will continue for the next foreseeable future.\n\nZimbabwean dollar transactions constitute 70 percent of the national payment system, and 30 percent are in U.S. dollars, while government revenue also follows the same ratio of 70 percent in Zimbabwean dollars and 30 percent in U.S. dollars.\n\n\"The figures are showing us that the majority of Zimbabweans prefer transacting in the Zimbabwean dollar. So it is clear that we do not have enough U.S. dollars to cause us to want to dollarize,\" Guvamatanga said.",

        "body": "RABAT (Reuters) - Moroccan authorities have begun prosecuting 65 migrants who joined Friday's mass attempt to cross into a Spanish enclave by storming a border post, leading to the death of at least 23 migrants, a judicial source said on Monday.\n\nAbout 2,000 migrants took part in the attempt, triggering violent skirmishes with Moroccan security forces and Spanish border guards at the Melilla enclave, with about 100 managing to get across.\n\nMoroccan authorities said the deaths resulted from a crush after what they called a stampede, and from migrants falling from a high fence. Scores more were injured, they said, along with dozens of Moroccan security personnel.\n\nThe Moroccan Association of Human Rights (AMDH) organisation said 29 migrants had died, citing unnamed hospital sources.\n\nOn Sunday, the African Union voiced shock at what it called the violent treatment of migrants leading to deaths and injuries, and demanded an immediate investigation. Morocco and Spain have denied using excessive force.\n\nThe judicial source said most of those being prosecuted are from Sudan and that they face charges of igniting fires, attacking security forces and facilitating illegal border crossings.\n\nAMDH said three of its lawyers would help represent the migrants in court.\n\nMany other migrants detained by the authorities on Friday have been bussed to southern Morocco and released there, AMDH said, a practice Rabat began in 2018 to discourage illegal migration attempts.\n\nVideo AMDH issued of the aftermath of Friday's disaster showed dozens of African men lying piled alongside each other, many apparently lifeless, some bleeding and some making feeble movements while Moroccan police stood over them.\n\nAMDH said the injured were left unattended for hours, adding to the death toll. Some of the footage showed Moroccan security officers striking men lying on the ground.\n\nMoroccan authorities shared their own footage of the border storming with African ambassadors, an official source said, including police efforts to clear migrant camps from forest areas near the enclave before the raid.\n\nThe source said Rabat had not published the video, but confirmed that it was one published by a local French-language news website.\n\nIt showed a very large group of migrants storming the fence using sticks and throwing rocks as they clashed with security guards who used tear gas to try to disperse them.\n\nAt one point, a section of fence collapsed under a large group trying to climb over it, with many falling several metres.\n\nThe official source said the cause of the crush was a concentration of migrants trying to breach a particularly narrow gateway at the border crossing.\n\nSpain will use a NATO summit in Madrid this week to seek increased intelligence sharing on issues relating to migration, two diplomats told Reuters.\n\n(Reporting by Ahmed Eljechtimi, Writing by Angus McDowall; Editing by Bill Berkrot)",
