With the victory, Serena moved back to being the World No.1, deposing Angelique Kerber. The only person to win more Grand Slam titles than Serena is Margaret Court, who with 24 to her name is now tantalisingly within reach for the woman widely regarded as the greatest to ever play the game; at 35, she is also the oldest ever victor of a Grand Slam in the open era.
I wrote a script for a series and Netflix bought it, thank God. ".We're moving up. It's still not there yet, but it's closing in on it". McGregor believes it will be booked for either the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018. Knowing the persona of McGregor and how much money he makes for UFC, a huge penalty for these remarks is unlikely, although a fine is possible. I'm ready to stay busy, stay active'.
It all started with an air ball by Parsons during what would eventually be a 112-109 victory for the Blazers. Portland is ninth in the Western Conference and could be destined for the National Basketball Association lottery if it doesn't turn things around, so this is a decent burn.
Woods will tee it up in the Dubai Desert Classic next Thursday and then will play three of the next four weeks. That worry proved to be correct, with Woods only managing an even-par 72 in round two, which meant the 14-time major victor missed the cut by a long way, ending up four shots adrift of the cut-off mark.
If a horse wins each leg of the Triple Crown, in 2016, the Jockey Club announced they would also give the winning horse an additional $1 million , according to Reuters . With California Chrome back-peddling, the Breeders' Cup Classic victor - who shot to prominence in the Travers Stakes at Saratoga in August - strode majestically down the stretch for an emphatic success from Shaman Ghost and Neolithic .
But being a Vanderbilt fan doesn't have anything to do with my pessimism as a Falcons fan. "The message I got from (them) is treasure the moment, treasure the time, treasure it for your franchise, for your coaches, players, fans, sponsors, everybody connected to the organization", Blank said in the media session at his Buckhead offices.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was next to line up a shot, but his effort went well wide. Welbeck finished off a slick pass from Lucas Perez in the box to give the visitors the lead on 15 minutes. Walcott celebrated in reserved fashion after downing his boyhood club, who he will be firmly behind when they visit Wembley in the first showpiece final of the season next month.
Divock Origi sparked a frantic last five minutes with a close-range strike but it was too little, too late, as Wolves became the seventh lower-division team this millennium to knock the Reds out of the FA Cup . "The second half was hard for us because there was many chance for Liverpool but in the first half we had two or three chances and could have made more of a difference".
Okogie scored 35 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in Wednesday's 22-point home victory over Florida State, but picked up his second foul less than nine minutes into this game and managed just two points in the first half. "You've got to give Georgia Tech a lot of credit". "When we won those five games to start league play, every one of them was like this, only we stole them", Brey said.
Those messages were probably alarmed and concerned friends and family and colleagues who heard Tortorella's announcement that he would miss Thursday's game in Nashville for a "personal matter that requires my immediate attention". Tortorella has guided the Blue Jackets to a 32-11-4 record in his second season in Columbus. Team reporter Aaron Portzline confirmed that the family emergency does not have to do with Tortorella's son Nick, who is a US Army Ranger stationed overseas, but no ...
Adams also added three assists and four blocks in 32 minutes of court-time, showing no ill effects after his enforced two-game break. Kanter left the game to undergo X-rays and didn't return in OKC's 109-98 win. In today's episode of "When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong", we visit Oklahoma City Thunder big-man Enes Kanter . Pre-injury, Kanter, 24, was enjoying his most efficient season as a professional, averaging 14.6 ppg and 6.8 rpg in just 21 mpg.
She carded a double-bogey-6 on No. 14 but an ace on the par-3 12th made up for the error. Three further birdies and no bogeys on the inward half has the two-time major victor two in front of a group of three players including former World Number One Stacy Lewis.
Besides sounding like the most woefully underused Mortal Kombat character, WWE creative has done little favors for Nia. Although such a drastic push into the main event picture from the off is probably unlikely, in this day we can't count out the possibility as it has happened three times in the a year ago (AJ, Finn and *sigh* Ellsworth).
U.S. Soccer has announced a final squad of 23 players to face Serbia in a friendly on Sunday. That roster includes current New York Red Bull leaders Luis Robles and Sacha Kljestan , and now former teammate Dax McCarty . Only two players are not from America's first division; however, both have previously played in the league: DeMarcus Beasley (unattached) and Jorge Villafana (Santos Laguna in Liga MX).
Klopp had made nine changes from the team that lost to Southampton in the EFL Cup, and the home side could easily have gone further behind in the first few minutes. "Some of the boys might be rested for the FA Cup games but they are probably sick at missing out". That is why they are so short of confidence. You look at them as a whole from back to front and Liverpool haven't been firing.
Nadal seemed to be a bit closer to top form after recovering from a wrist injury, but he did not appear to have a great chance of getting to the championship round. Both have a deep respect and admiration for each other. Especially winning against hard players: "(Gael) Monfils in quarter-finals, (Alexander) Zverev round of 16 and now Raonic", Nadal said .
Spurs got away with it, just, after Wycombe had given them a fabulous, gripping contest. The 19-year-old would probably have preferred a central role - and he soon got it as Pochettino ordered him to swap places with Moussa Sissoko in the early stages.
MIAMI • American golfer Brittany Lincicome fired a tournament record nine-under 64 on Thursday to grab a two-stroke lead after round one of the LPGA Pure Silk Bahamas Classic, the Tour's 2017 season opener.

There have been nine 50-point triple-doubles in the history of the National Basketball Association, and Rockets guard James Harden has posted two of them within 28 days of each other. "Philly fans are always exciting", Harden said. Kevin Hart is almost two feet shorter than Joel Embiid , but he still sees himself in the Philadelphia 76ers' rising star.
If a wrestler is chosen to win the Rumble match, it's a clear sign the company has big plans for them for the future. I suspect this happens if Cena beats Styles for the coveted No. Who should win? Brock Lesnar . A collision with Goldberg looks likely this year, though, after the WCW powerhouse crushed him in just 86 seconds at Survivor Series in November.
Alshawi was already aboard a flight to join his wife and their 7-year-old son in Houston when Trump signed the executive order. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on Saturday sued the Trump administration on behalf of two men who were detained at an airport while traveling back to the USA because of President Trump's immigration crackdown.
Venus, who will be the oldest finalist at Melbourne Park since tennis turned professional in 1968 , said inspiring a younger generation of players like Vandeweghe was "more than a cherry on top", before expanding her thoughts on why sporting success inspired.
The striker got on the end of an early cross into the box after just a minute as he headed across to Paul Hayes but his effort clipped the crossbar on its way over.

Liverpool laid siege to Southampton's goal in the second half having been outplayed in the opening 45 minutes, but the visitors were doggedly determined to keep the hosts at bay and poached a victor at the death to seal a 2-0 aggregate victory.
The match was Venus' 15th Grand Slam career final - she's won seven - but has lost her only two Australian Open finals, both of which were against Serena .

"It's always very satisfying to be able to get through in such a big match against an opponent who was just on fire".
I just feel like, no matter what happens, we've won. It's worked well against all the other players and he hasn't had the chance to do that against Rafa on non-clay in a big tournament since he changed his game plan, and what a flawless time to put it all together: a fast hardcourt, Rafa's exhausted, it just all points to Roger.
Everyone who I've ever met that calls themselves a fan of the team are diehard, and plan to be that way for the rest of their lives. When they had a 10-point lead with three minutes left, I believed they would win. Mostly, Blank said that in talking to Kraft, and later to Pittsburgh's Art Rooney II, he picked up one piece of advice that might just suit everyone who is along for the ride with the Falcons.
It continually surprises new bettors how popular this prop is. "Once you get there you start with (Opening Night)". It also doesn't exactly take a degree in rocket science to figure out how to bet on this prop if you are new to the scene.

There's no denying that Embiid has the talent to play in the game but it's not his fault. Embiid finished the game as the Sixers' leading scorer with 32 points. Get back in the MVP groove, and we're likely to not only see the Beard in the lead for the Podoloff Trophy, but also see the Houston offense that had the Rockets as one of the NBA's best early season stories start humming once again.
Richardson and experienced Englishman Tim Bresnan (3-40) grabbed three wickets apiece to restrict the Sixers to a mediocre total of 9-141. Jhye Richardson claimed 3-30 in an excellent all-round bowling display by the hosts. Playing here, I had fun, but I don't think I will play global cricket again. There proved to be little tension this time around as the Sixers slipped to 17 for three after being put into bat although Brad Haddin's 38 in a partnership of 57 with captain Moises ...
Regardless of the early exit, Jokic finished last night's game with 29 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists in a borderline-staggering display of all-around production for a big man. The lead changed hands a couple of times, with Bledsoe leading the way for Phoenix with 14 fourth-quarter points. T.J. Warren added 21 but Phoenix couldn't keep pace down the stretch.
