By Susan Cooper Eastman JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Reuters) - Search-and-rescue teams on Sunday located debris appearing to belong to the cargo ship El Faro, which went missing in the eye of Hurricane Joaquin with 33 mostly American crew members aboard more than three days ago, the U.S. Coast Guard and the ship's owner said. There was no sighting of the El Faro or any lifeboats, Tim Nolan, president of ship's owner Tote Maritime Puerto Rico, said in a statement. With no word on the fate of the crew, relatives gathered at a seafarers' union hall in Jacksonville, Florida where an emotional meeting was held late on Sunday afternoon with the Coast Guard and Tote Maritime executives.
Li Na's Grand Slam wins did miraculous things for tennis in China but a cultural shift away from central planning towards individual development is needed if the country is to emerge as a powerhouse, experts say. Tangible evidence of tennis's growth in China comes in the form of the Wuhan Open's new, 15,000-seat stadium, opened by Li last month, which has a similar capacity to Wimbledon's Centre Court. Steady crowds and the presence of 12 Chinese players in the women's top 200 -- behind only Russia, the United States and the Czech Republic -- also demonstrate tennis's upward trajectory.
