"I think the only really thing that changes the dynamic is because she's great, she's a great player".
Lallana missed the Wolves game after requiring stitches in a leg wound he sustained during the 1-0 League Cup semi-final second-leg defeat by Southampton last Wednesday.

Venus came out on top with a win 7-6 (4), 6-1. But that was 19 years ago, nearly a lifetime in tennis. In 1998, two teenage tennis phenoms from Compton, Calif., met for the first time on the pro tour, in the second round at the Australian Open .
Both won sets back and forth. He told Sky Sports: "It was a truly astonishing final and a real privilege to sit through that and see the quality both players produced". Match was even.

Hacking out of Torrey Pines' thick rough much of the day, and even clipping a tree on No. 14, made it hard to gain momentum. And I've played it under so many different conditions over the years, whether we've had a lot of rough, no rough.
Brady now owns a large number of Super Bowl records and if you are a Pats fan it is reasonable to believe he is going to add to those marks on Super Bowl Sunday.

Georginio Wijnaldum, 26 , could be re-instated to midfield as Liverpool look to come-out of a slump that has seen them win only one game in their last seven matches . Jurgen Klopp knows how despondent Mane is after the loss, but also knows how much the Reds need Mane. Liverpool sank deeper into their mid-season rut when Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers claimed a deserved 2-1 FA Cup fourth-round victory at Anfield as the competition lived up to its reputation for shocks on ...
It seemed like only yesterday when the Royals were defined by their blazing speed and willingness to steal bases all the dang time. Despite missing out on the postseason past year, the Royals are just barely removed from winning back-to-back American League titles in addition to the 2015 World Series.
It was a solid opener, though a surprisingly clean victory - everything would have pointed towards a screwy finish so the pair could continue feuding through to WrestleMania . Cena hit a super Attitude Adjustment, and two rolling Attitudes Adjustment to capture his 16th world title. It's also the first pay-per-view of the calendar year for the company.
The Falcons are making just their second appearance in the Super Bowl in team history. They have been dominant in the playoffs as well, blowing out both teams they played.

Skipper Smith is out of the three-game series starting at Eden Park on Monday after straining medial ligaments in his left ankle in Thursday's ODI win over Pakistan in Adelaide. "It's a bit of a shock. I was a little bit concerned, I've never really injured my ankle like that". "I went off and got it strapped and looked at, but was in a reasonable amount of pain in the field".
The goal completed a hat trick for the former Kings forward, who is still well-liked in Los Angeles after he was traded to Philadelphia in 2011. "It meant a lot". The Pacific outshot the Central 22-10, and Smith made nine saves for the victory. One of them was Ryker, who beat the grinning Price five-hole and celebrated with a two-fisted pump that he learned from his All-Star dad, who filmed him on his phone.
Former Texas A&M basketball standout Joseph Jones , who is playing in the Iran Super League, is stranded in Dubai after Iran's decision to ban USA citizens, reported Yahoo Sports.

But in the end he enjoyed the challenge of playing in the final group. "I feel very comfortable in contention", he said. "This is a place that I love and play great on".

"Building bridges, not walls, with Mexico", he wrote, voicing support for the country that has provided Starbucks with coffee for three decades and where almost 600 Starbucks coffee shops employ 7,000 people.
Fans of tennis and Federer should savour his game as long as it can be. After four sets where the momentum alternately swung, the fifth had all the tension and drama that these two players are famous for. The second set started with a Nadal hold, and then he immediately broke Federer to go up in the frame. He was unable to actually fight them off and Nadal returned incredibly well, taking the game and a 3-1 lead in the fourth.
The court complaint in the NY case says that "dozens and dozens other individuals now detained at JFK"; unverified reports indicate that 50 detainees may be held in the Dallas airport, while other unconfirmed reports indicate immigrants are being held in Atlanta, Houston, Detroit, and Dulles (outside Washington, DC).
Thousands of people took part in spontaneous protests at airports across the USA as the executive order took effect, stranding travellers who were already in the air when it was signed.

Federer has 17 to Nadal's 14, with four Australian Open crowns to the Spaniard's one. He leads Federer leads 6-2 in their Major finals. His duel in the Australian Open final against Rafael Nadal justified all the lavish pre-match packaging, unfolding in five sets of bruising, see-sawing drama that showcased every facet of the modern game's defining rivalry.
In recent years, their brightness has waned with Novak Djokovic winning most of the Grand Slam titles and the likes of Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray bagging one or two titles in between. It's big for me, for him, for everyone. Soon after, he produced an ace to get his second match point and hit a forehand crosscourt victor to Nadal's backhand to finish off.
The second set started with a Nadal hold, and then he immediately broke Federer to go up in the frame. Nadal fought off the first break point attempt but on his second try, Federer hit a shot across the court just on the line, a attractive shot that put the set back on serve.
We have to play with a very good team; the only player that is out is De Gea, I'll give him a few days off". This match will be live from KCOM Stadium in Hull City. He left a good situation in our club to try what we call "men's football" and, for sure, he will come with a team that's very aggressive, well organised defensively, emotional - the manager is also emotional.I will make some changes.

At 35, Serena is the oldest women's champion at a major in the Open Era-she also held that record when she won the 2016 Wimbledon title at 34 years and 287 days old, reports USA Today . It is a remarkable feat for Williams, who made her professional debut in 1994 and is enjoying a late-career renaissance following a battle with a rare autoimmune disorder.
He's just about every bit as talented as his tag partner and has less World Championships to show for it despite being 10x over. Yes, that's how dialed-in it was from both a storyline and match perspective. But John Cena , who recently returned, challenged the champion for a match at WWE Royal Rumble . The favorites going into tonight's show were Randy Orton, The Undertaker, Goldberg, and Braun Strowman (Finn Bálor was right up there, too).
But he was unable to keep it up, and Nadal ultimately took the second set at 6-3. I think I've led the way for 20 years.

Nadal said it was a "privilege" to face Federer in their ninth final.
The home side had a significant edge in experience over the visitors - whose players had a combined six caps among them - but the US struggled to create many clear chances. Making Nagbe's future with the team even more hard to pin down is his positional ambiguity, meaning that Nagbe could find himself playing any number of different roles under Arena - an issue that plagued his time under Klinsmann and has limited his ability to put up the sort of numbers that fans demand in club play with the ...

The 49ers found their next general manager on Sunday. Lynch notably played in the National Football League from 1993-2008 as a strong safety, with stints on the Bucs, Broncos, and on the Patriots' practice squad. Lynch played for Mike Shanahan's Broncos teams but has worked with Kyle before. If the 49ers go ahead and hire Shanahan, you can assume one of two things: Lynch approves of the hire, or 49ers CEO Jed York has made the decision to hire Shanahan without any input from Lynch.
It's one of tennis's greatest rivalries, as Nadal also finds himself among the sport's best. Across the net was his nemesis, Rafael Nadal, the left-handed Spaniard he hadn't been able to beat in a major final in nearly a decade. He needed another five break points on Nadal's next service game before the Spaniard finally cracked and the Spaniard was still battling away when Federer sealed the title with a forehand victor that Hawk-Eye confirmed hit the line.
Ballard replaces Ryan Grigson, who was sacked last week after five seasons. If Ballard is hired and demands a change, one potential head coaching possibility for the Colts could be current Kansas City Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub-given their familiarity with one another.
Given the identities of the two coaches, this tie always looked likely to be a close-fought tactical battle and so it proved on a terrible pitch in Port-Gentil that the tournament can be glad to see the back of. It would be another triumph against the odds, given the number of key players Morocco lost to injury before jetting off to Gabon, but they displayed their fighting qualities to make it out of their group.
