Less than three months after being parachuted into the New Zealand hot-seat, David Kidwell says hes relishing the opportunity to replicate his playing success in the coaching box in Sundays Four Nations final.And if there was ever any evidence needed that Kidwell is enjoying the coaching caper its the way he has kept his cards close to his chest this week in regards to his team for the final.Rather than name his team one through 17, Kidwell named a 19-man squad in alphabetical order, including both Te Maire Martin and Tohu Harris.The duo are battling to fill the five-eighth role for New Zealand and replace Thomas Leuluai, who broke his jaw against Scotland.Kidwell was part of two of the Kiwi teams greatest moments when they stunned Australia in the Four Nations final in Leeds in 2005 then again three years later when they lifted the World Cup against the Kangaroos in Brisbane.During a nomadic playing career that took in spells at Adelaide Rams, Parramatta, Warrington, Sydney Roosters, Melbourne and South Sydney, Kidwell was a powerful second-rower with an aggressive streak.Although hes won just one of this first four matches as coach and was held to a draw by Scotland, Kidwell said hes thriving on the opportunity to coach his country in a final having served as an assistant to Steve Kearney for the last two years.Ive loved every minute of it, Kidwell told AAP.Its a job where weve had games where weve come back from adversity and you learn a lot about yourself.You may be down, but you cant show that to the players. You have to pick the team up when they are down and move onto the next challenge.My philosophy is that I am learning every day. I am picking up stuff every day, little things here and there from different kinds of sports and different kind of people.The Kiwis can often mix brilliance with inconsistency two traits exemplified by mercurial halfback Shaun Johnson and Kidwell admitted finding the balance between coaching and man-managing his team is something hes still getting to grips with.I havent found the difference between coaching and playing that great, he said.It sounds obvious, but the only major difference is going out on the field. The emotions I feel are the same, mentally you are looking at whether you are preparing your team right.I get more nervous as a coach than I every did as a player. But the most important thing is to not show that to my players.Those nerves are probably down to passion as well. I want the Kiwis to do so well. I am competitor at heart and I love winning.New Zealand: Jordan Kahu, David Fusitua, Solomone Kata, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Jordan Rapana, Te Maire Martin, Shaun Johnson, Jesse Bromwich (capt), Issac Luke, Adam Blair, Kevin Proctor, Tohu Harris, Jason Taumalolo: Interchange: Lewis Brown, Martin Taupau, Manu Mau, Greg Eastwood Joseph Tapine, James Fisher-Harris Heath Miller Jersey .

Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes.

With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. Terry Bradshaw Jersey . Their experience showed Tuesday as the No. 10 Badgers blunted a Saint Louis surge to win 63-57 and advance to face West Virginia in Wednesdays finals of the Cancun Challenge.Sebastian Giovincos arrival at Toronto FC from Juventus last year was a surprise to many. An Italy international, landing from one of the worlds elite leagues at the peak age of 27, Giovincos move was to some more integral than David Beckham, Kaka and Frank Lampards song-and-dance arrivals.Why? Because Giovinco was one of the first 20-something players to take the leap to MLS with so much still to prove. Giovinco has taken MLS by storm since his move to Toronto FC. We take a look at the diminutive forwards finest moments. Beckham was 31 when he joined LA Galaxy, but with nearly 100 England caps having just won the Liga title with Real Madrid.Kaka had won nearly every personal and team prize in the game before moving to Orlando last year, while Lampard, like the others, had nothing left to prove with over 600 Premier League appearances and 177 goals.Giovinco played a bit-part role in Juventus side since 2013, and had earned just seven Italy caps in two years having previously been a regular.His career hadnt reached its peak, but instead of taking a step back and searching for European football across the continent, he took a risk by joining a franchise who had yet to reach Major League Soccers play-offs in their eight-year history. Giovinco has scored two in two for Toronto this season Make no mistake, he is paid handsomely. His salary of $7.1m a year is the second-highest in MLS in 2015 behind Kaka, but the pressure of the price tag has not shown. He scored 22 goals in 33 MLS appearances as Toronto FC reached the play-offs, and was named 2015 MVP winner, Golden Boot winner, Newcomer of the Year winner and single-season points record winner for goals and assists combined.Giovincos transfer to Toronto to was very surprising, says Sky in Italys Augusto De Bartolo. No Italian players went to MLS at the peak age of their careers. The last two established Italians to choose soccer were Alessandro Nesta and Andrea Pirlo, but they went in the twilight years.He is the most important player in the young history of Toronto FC, he has won all of these awards without changing his style of play. The Italian was WhoScored.coms player of the season for MLS in 2015 He was not fully appreciated in Italy, due to the desire of the coaches to use players with physical strength. He made the choice to move to MLS when he was still on the roster of the Azzurri at an age when players generally show all of their potential.Just 5ft 4ins and with bags of skill, Giovinco has suited MLS to the ground. His low centre of gravity and eye-catching guile has been a breath of fresh air to the league, which is enjoying a period of rapid growth.Giovinco has been so impressive, he even attracted a small approach from Barcelona of all clubs.I didnt believe it myself, Giovinco told SportItalia last yeear.dddddddddddd It was true though, even if there was nothing concrete. A small approach, shall we say. Sky in Italys August De Bartolo says Giovincos style is comparable with Gianfranco Zolas For those yet to watch him at length on these shores, one comparison springs to mind.When you watch Giovinco on the pitch, the only player you think of is Gianfranco Zola, says Sky in Italys De Bartolo. They are not only very similar on a physical and technical basis, but in their career too.Like Giovinco, Zola was not fully appreciated in his country, and moved to another championship. It is not uncommon for Italians to notice the value of a player when he leaves the country. It happened with Zola, it is happening with Giovinco. He is a little big player, like Zola.Zola earned just 35 caps for Italy, retiring after not being selected for the 1998 World Cup, but Giovincos international career has life left in it - one of a growing number of players to see their national team prospects improve following a move to MLS. The leagues retirement home tag is fading, and Giovinco has contributed to much of the erasing.In my opinion, Giovinco could play in La Liga, the Premier League or Bundesliga. Many thought his decision would prevent him playing a big role at Euro 2016 with the Azzurri, but Antonio Conte is still considering him as a big resource for the squad. Steven Gerrard and Andrea Pirlo both moved to MLS, but Giovinco took the challenge on his mid-20s He played the last two matches of the Euro Qualifying campaign against Azerbaijan and Norway, and Conte actually prefers him to Napolis Lorenzo Insigne.Could that Barcelona interest, or that of any other European powerhouse, turn from small to something serious? Like many MLS stars, the anonymity of life in the league is a major positive, something Steven Gerrard, Lampard and Pirlo have all strongly referenced. Giovinco scored a fine goal in Torontos 2-2 draw at NYC FC last week Giovinco told The Guardian last year: The difference between Italy and here is that here we can enjoy time with family, time with friends. So after training, we can just go for a walk, go for ice cream, shopping, whatever. And when we do get stopped by fans, they are very respectful. Its a difference lifestyle, and Im definitely enjoying it.The faster the league grows, and the more Giovinco stars, the sooner that might change, but his risky move has paid off.
