Djokovic contre l'homme qui a battu Nadal

Ses bouteilles (précisément positionnées d'une certaine façon), le fait de ne pas marcher sur les lignes entre les points, son rituel d'avant-service (balayage de la ligne, tirage de short, toucher des épaules, des oreilles, du nez)... Objectif d'Ostapenko, tombeuse surprise de Samantha Stosur en huitièmes, s'offrir une demie pour ses 20 ans, qu'elle célébrera jeudi. Le no 2 mondial, lauréat de 12 trophées majeurs, n'avait perdu aucun de ses cinq précédents matches contre l'Autrichien. Read More »

Il a donc ramassé une de ces canettes et s'est versé une bonne gorgée du précieux breuvage. Cela semble avoir eu son effet, puisque le même joueur a réussi à égaliser pour son équipe en toute fin de partie sur corner. Read More »

Nadal , âgé de 31 ans, avait entamé son retour au premier plan en début d'année en atteignant la finale de l'Open d'Australie contre Roger Federer . Les deux jeunes femmes feront face aux têtes de série no 2, les Russes Olesya Pervushina et Anastasia Potapova, qui ont vaincu les Japonaises Ayumi Miyamoto et la Chinoise Xiyu Wang 6-3, 3-6, 10-6.

Veteran Sri Lankan bowler Lasith Malinga dropped a sitter of a catch in the long leg boundary during the match. Sri Lanka were still well on top of the run rate when Mendis was dismissed for just 11 from 10 balls. Amla's knock featured five fours and two sixes. As most of its experienced players have taken retirement, now the onus will be on the young squad to lead the team. Read More »

This was our best game so far, says Virat Kohli

Asked to bat, South Africa were off to a slow but steady start with openers de Kock and Hashim Amla adding 35 runs in the first 10 overs. A third one could well be on the cards as both India and South Africa boast of top-class batsmen. Read More »

Defencemen help Penguins play fast in Stanley Cup Final

perth_map

The defending champions provided an emphatic reminder of why they're on the cusp of history with a 6-0 demolition of the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to take a 3-2 lead. Subban drew laughs when he attributed a Game 3 run-in with Crosby to a discussion about Subban's bad breath. "I got a way better arm than that". "'Desperate' is a amusing word for me because it gets thrown around our game a lot. Read More »

perth_map

As the final seconds ticked off, Cleveland fans chanted "Cavs in 7". Durant was 10-for-18 from the field, including 4-for-7 from beyond the arc. The sharpshooter missed a potential game-sealing 3-pointer with 50 seconds left. The Cavaliers' lead fluctuated up and down in the third quarter but they held a double-digit advantage throughout the quarter, ending with a 115-96 lead going into the fourth. Read More »

Goaltending a big key to Stanley Cup Final success for Penguins

perth_map

That, above everything, they have. In that game, the Predators seized momentum until the reigning champs snatched it away late. "They're an opportunistic team". Laviolette is famously secretive, of course, so it might mean nothing. With No. 1 defenceman Kris Letang gone midway through the season, they finished 14th in shots for and against at five-on-five; going into Game 2 Wednesday night, Pittsburgh had the second-lowest percentage of five-on-five shot attempts of any team in the ...

What Time Does the Canadian Grand Prix Start?

I wanted to get a good feel to the vehicle so I'd leave a gap. "I felt good in the auto in the long runs, so let's see what happens tomorrow". It was a great lap, a sexy lap! "To equal him; I just can't believe it". He needs to make the best of it on Sunday, however. Vettel had been solid throughout practice, quickest in the third session, and looked to have good pace in qualifying but could not quite match the British driver, although he threw everything at it, finishing just three-tenths ...

Sentimental favorite Patch, a one-eyed horse, finished third in the field that was missing Kentucky Derby victor Always Dreaming and Preakness Stakes champion Cloud Computing. Always Dreaming and Preakness victor Cloud Computing both skipped the race. "It actually wasn't our plan to be on the lead", said Irish War Cry trainer Graham Motion. Read More »

The Kiwis will be looking to recover from their daunting loss to Oracle yesterday, with Team New Zealand effectively bullied off the course by their American opposition. The victor will face Oracle, which is racing in the preliminaries even though its place in the final is guaranteed as the defending champion. "The shore team got us in a position to win", he said.

Predators on brink as Rinne struggles in Pitt

But Pittsburgh's 6-0 win in Game 5 was the second true blowout of the series and the fourth decided by three or more goals. Pens netminder Matt Murray was charged with three goals on 25 shots that dropped his postseason record to 5-3. He trails only Malkin and Crosby with 20 points this post-season and appears due to come through, posting maybe his finest game of the final in a Game 4 loss with eight attempts on goal. Read More »

Golden State blocks Cleveland comeback bid

After a missed corner three from Kyle Korver on a kick-out pass from James , Durant smoothly came down and buried the dagger to give the Warriors their first lead all fourth quarter. "I think we have grown and matured just mentally of how to just pace yourself through this long year and take every day as a new experience and something that you can kind of take control of".

Power wins wild IndyCar race at Texas under caution

But in what was the closest element of a "pack race" in recent years, the combination of a repaved Texas track that was grippier than normal and the fact the new Firestone tires brought this weekend didn't fall off as much as they had in the past over the course of the stint brought the "pack race" term back to the vernacular.

NHL Stanley Cup Final Game 5 Betting Preview: Predators at Penguins

perth_map

Sidney Crosby , who was reunited on his line with Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary for the first time in a while, had the juice early. "He certainly had it going", Hainsey said. The Penguins have played the entire postseason without their top defenseman. The defence, which had been the team's biggest weak spot in the series, moved the puck easily and efficiency. Read More »

Nadal first man in history to win record-breaking 10th French Open

The Spaniard is struggling to hold back the tears, after beating Stan Wawrinka 6-2, 6-3, 6-1. But the song remained the same, Nadal taking the set in the ninth game, just moments after Wawrinka, who knocked out world number one Andy Murray in the semis, had destroyed a racquet in utter frustration.

Rookie Jake Guentzel scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins exploded for three goals in the third period Wednesday in a 4-1 win over the Nashville Predators in the NHL Stanley Cup finals . In Game 1 , the Penguins pushed three goals by Rinne in a span of 4:11 in the first period to build a 3-0 lead.
