Williams is now the World's No. 2, and Angelique Kerber holds the World No. 1 spot. If it's true, the athlete has clearly taken some lessons in secret-keeping from her BFF Beyonce . A congratulatory tweet from the Women's Tennis Association was also deleted. The WTA tour has been unpredictable this year but it will be interesting to see, who will be able to step up and win Grand Slam titles in Williams' absence.
Cormier and his opponent, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, had both been cutting weight to get down to the mandatory 205 lbs but Johnson had no issues, stepping on the scale at a cool 103.8. When he stepped on the scale the second time, Cormier had his hands on the top of the towel and seemed to be pushing down ever so subtly - which could have the effect of lifting him, just fractionally enough, off the scale.
While this season his goalscoring exploits have not been as impressive from a statistical standpoint, due to Gonzalo Higuain playing at the tip of the Juve attack, Dybala produced a show-stopping double against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday night.
Enter Games 1 and 2 against the Indiana Pacers. The best basketball player in the entire world isn't talking about how he managed to almost drop a triple-double against the Pacers , or breaking down how Paul George scored 32 points and almost led in to a win in Cleveland .
Daniel Norris threw 4.2 innings, giving up 5 runs, 4 earned, on 8 hits while striking out 4, taking the loss to fall to 1-1 this season. "I think we are seeing him put it together a little bit". Peterson doubled and scored on Dickerson's RBI single, and after a Kiermaier double, Longoria ripped a two-run single to left to make it 5-1. Joe West arrived in the bottom of the third inning and took over at third base.
But while the crown appears shaky, the Cavs, who dropped their last four and the No. 1 seed in the East, feel like they can defend it. He scored nine points and grabbed two rebounds in the 98-83 loss to the Toronto Raptors , the Cavs' likely foe in the second round of the playoffs.
His dad made a decision to surprise him with tickets to a Cubs game at Wrigley Field when they play the Cardinals. The Miami Marlins shut out the Seattle Mariners 5-0, the Toronto Blue Jays' poor start to the season continued with an 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 6-2.
He's not lost his familiar bluster. If you think you were the only one that was confused when Anthony Johnson chose to grapple Daniel Cormier rather than create distance and box him, you're wrong. The finish came at 3:37 of the second round in the UFC 210 main event. I didn't want to take that head kick. "But either way, I'll have to fight Jon at some stage regardless so I wouldn't be against the idea of testing my skills against him".
We have Daley Blind, who has experience in the position, and I think it is time for Jones and Smalling to be fearless - to risk. The Match of the Day host even claimed that Rashford was the most exciting young player he had seen for a long time.
Bangladesh also take on Australia at the same venue on June 5 before travelling to Cardiff to close their Group A campaign against New Zealand four days later. Subashis will however travel to Ireland for the triangular ODI series there as well as a training camp in Sussex as will Nurul and batsman Nasir Hossain.
The picture with Trump showed both staircases empty while the 2015 photo with Obama appeared seemingly packed with players. The two photos show the Patriots personnel with the president on the south side of the White House. In the 2015 story, the Patriots staff stood on the stairs. Aside from coach Bill Belichick and star tight end, Rob Gronkowski - who didn't even play in the big game due to injury - players who attended the ceremony were mostly unrecognizable and unknown by most National ...
White had six carries for 29 yards and two touch downs, the second one being the game winning over time touchdown, and also broke a Super Bowl record with 14 receptions and racked up 110 yards and a touchdown. "He just does everything right and you can never get mad at him". To go from a rookie to working his tail off to become a big factor in all these games, that particular role in our offense - the Kevin Faulk mode, the Danny Woodhead mold, the Shane Vereen mold - and ultimately what Dion ...
That will be scant consolation for, among others, Christian Wade, Tommy Taylor, Dan Robson, Mike Haley, Josh Beaumont, Don Armand, Marland Yarde, Semesa Rokoduguni, Teimana Harrison, Danny Cipriani and Mike Williams, all of whom would have regarded the Tests in San Juan (10 June) and Santa Fe (17 June) and as a flawless opportunity to push their worldwide credentials.
Losing its best arm, even if for just a month or two, creates a ripple effect for San Francisco, likely forcing Samardzija and Moore into more prominent roles, and a shaky Matt Cain and an unproven Ty Blach into the spotlight. This is Bumgarner's first trip to the disabled list in his nine-year major league career. The lefty is 0-3 with a 3.00 ERA this season, but the Giants have scored two total runs over his last three starts.
So Rooney could get an unexpectedly quick reprieve, starting perhaps at Burnley in the English Premier League on Sunday. Indeed, Eric Bailly and substitute Daley Blind are the only senior options in the heart of the defence, with Chris Smalling (knee) and Phil Jones (toe) already ruled out for the coming weeks.
AS and Cadena Cope both state report the Merseyside Reds had hoped to land the coveted 21-year-old next summer but Los Blancos are not going to consider any bids for the player they signed from Real Mallorca for €4m in January 2015. However, both Spanish media says that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp should forget about his signing as Real Madrid won't negotiate his departure at any price.
Mason, 34, has a five year-old son and had competed for Great Britain in the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing, winning a silver medal in the high jump. The Jamaican-born Mason still holds the 2.34-meter high jump national record he set in his home country in 2003.
Raptors coach Dwane Casey knew that his All-Star point guard would be out to make amends Tuesday night in Game 2 . "He's gonna be lighter in the pocket this morning", Casey said. In an attempt to answer those questions, we considered the misfortune of creating good looks and just missing the shots, the problems of Mirza Teletovic and Spencer Hawes minutes, and the adjustments made by the Raptors to right the ship.
Though he backed Bylsma in returning for a third season, Murray cautioned the decision was ultimately Pegula's. Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula spoke to the media Friday morning a day after two big firings. "Leaders don't undercut the coach as many times as Eichel has this season", Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News wrote Saturday. Lombardi is expected to be discussed, while other potential GM candidates include Kings Assistant GM Mike Futa, Calgary Flames Assistant GM Craig Conroy, ...
Of Ibrahimovic and Rojo, who also hurt a knee and was seen limping heavily afterwards, Mourinho said: "I don't think they are easy injuries but I prefer to wait until all the tests are done and then speak". My feeling is not great for both. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho lauded Luke Shaw for playing through pain in his team's win over Anderlecht.
The main reason the Raptors lost Game 1 hails from Greece and has been accused by some of being a freak. Milwaukee leads this series 1-0 after picking up a road win this weekend in Toronto. The Bucks are simply a awful matchup for the Raptors as the Bucks' size does not allow the Raptors to get much usage out of their smaller lineups nor does the Bucks' athleticism allow the Raptors to capitalize on their own "Stretch-fours".
The club says Neuer sustained the injury in extra time, as Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal of Madrid's 4-2 victory. Cristiano Ronaldo may have been offside for a brace of his goals on Tuesday night against Bayern Munich, but this can not take away from the fact that he notched his 98th, 99th and 100th goals in Champions League football and achieved his 41st hat-trick for Real Madrid.
A number of questionable shots and breakdowns on defence by Cleveland allowed IN to make a late charge, but none of this seems to concern the player carrying the team's title hopes. After using a heroic fourth quarter from Draymond Green to lift the team to a victory in Game 1 on Sunday, Golden State carried that momentum over from the beginning.
The parties named in the motion include the Massachusetts Department of Corrections and the superintendent of the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts. According to the joint statement , Hernandez was locked in his cell about 8 p.m. on Tuesday night, and no one entered the cell until he was found by a correction officer at 3:03 a.m.
The media company announced Wednesday it was dropping O'Reilly's prime-time political punditry show, "The O'Reilly Factor", amid mounting sexual harassment allegations made by former staffers and guests. Bill O'Reilly is leaving Fox News with a payout of up to $25 million United States dollars, the equivalent of one year of his salary, two people briefed on the matter have confirmed earlier today.
Dortmund were earlier left unimpressed by their delayed arrival, which the Bundesliga club said in a post on Twitter was because the bus had been stopped by police "for approximately 20 minutes without justification". All in all, how we feel has not improved much since Wednesday. I think the players are ready and are working well. But it will be a different game and we go to do our best to qualify.
It's now a best-of-three, and if there's any such thing as momentum in a playoff series, it's all in the Sharks' corner. The offensive resurgence took all of 15 seconds as San Jose center Joe Pavelski netted the first goal of the evening past Cam Talbot glove side via a deflection off of a Justin Braun slap-shot.
Cleveland has a lot of problems - it's unfair to say that they punted the No. 1 seed because the Cavs are so bad defensively right now that it's hard to discern if they tried down the stretch or not - but few question that they're the best team in the East going into the postseason.
Rounding out the class are former S.C. State wide receiver Charlie Brown, who enjoyed success with the Redskins in the National Football League, former Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry, a Wofford alumn, and the late Felix "Doc" Blanchard, the former Army Heisman Trophy victor known as Mr.
Thomas played through tears Sunday night in the Celtics' 106-102 loss to the Chicago Bulls in the opener of a first-round Eastern Conference playoff series - just a day after his 22-year-old sister Chyna Thomas was killed in a auto crash.
Gortat far surpassed his average of 0.8 blocks per game and held Dwight Howard in check, limiting him to 6 points and 7 rebounds. He grew up in New Orleans but moved to Texas in 2005 after the city was struck by Hurricane Katrina. That became a talking point during the off days, and perhaps affected the way Game 2 was called. We are going back to Atlanta. Chants of "Refs, you suck", started in the third quarter and continued through the second half of the game.
NOTES: The Rays , wary of the flu bug that gripped the Red Sox , came prepared with a pair of air filtration systems for the clubhouse and plan to bring them along for all road games. Three starts, 21 2/3 innings, three runs allowed, 11 hits, 29 strikeouts, 1.25 ERA. "And I think on those days on which he is pitching the third day, it's when he's been efficient, much like we saw (Monday): good command, good location , his curveballs for strikes".
Defending champion Nadal, chasing a 10th title at the tournament, will face Argentina's Diego Schwartzman, who beat German qualifier Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3, 6-0. I guess both of us did really. The momentum was now on the Croat's side, he broke again at the start of the second set but that was all he could do, losing the last 6 games of the match after Albert restored his game to breezes through towards the finish line.
Wayne Rooney could be back on the bench for Manchester United if he comes through training on Wednesday without any reaction from an ankle injury. Few could have foreseen such an arduous evening after Mkhitaryan's fifth goal in six Europa League matches, but impressive Anderlecht went into half-time level after Hanni reacted quickest to Youri Tielemans' deflected effort rebounding off the crossbar.
Team boss Toto Wolff says Bottas' poor pace at the start was due to incorrect tyre pressures, caused by a broken generator on the grid, which then left Mercedes unable to react to Sebastian Vettel's race-defining pit stop on lap 10. "From yesterday to today you can not change anything, from Friday to Saturday we did a bit", he said. Vettel received intense pressure from Bottas on the restart but defender the spot well and quickly put a gap between him and the Mercedes .
Earlier this week Pique posted a cryptic tweet which appeared to be in reference to a controversial goal scored by Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid's Champions League victory over Bayern Munich. We played our game, and at the start created chances, but they built a mountain. Barcelona's time in the Champions League ended in the quarterfinals for a second straight year.
A collision between Kearyn Baccus and Theo in the first half of extra-time left both players unable to continue, and oncoming replacement Young made a superb save within seconds of coming on, turning Santalab's close-range blast over the crossbar.
That's right, the #2 seeded Cavs. Less than three years ago, his future was in doubt after a gruesome compound fracture while playing in a USA Basketball scrimmage. On Thursday, James did what he could to dispel that worry, indicating to Cleveland.com that he believes the Cavs "have a good chance to win it all".
And that's also what enabled the Clippers to avoid a 0-2 deficit against Utah. If the big three in LA don't get it done the franchise should consider trading Griffin to the Boston Celtics, Indiana Pacers or Los Angeles Lakers for pieces to help build the franchise.
But Manchester United were forced to extra time before schoolboy Marcus Rashford netted the winning goal for the Red Devils in the 107th minute. It cast a shadow over United's evening, but Rashford's superb strike ensured they took up a place in the last four.
