Asked if this was the best he had ever played, Federer said, "For me, it's hard to say yes to that question". His next opponent will be either Alexander Zverev or the Australian Nick Kyrgios.

Even Nadal had to admit how good Federer was after losing his fifth Miami Open final. He's the first three-time champion this year on the men's tour - and ready for a break.

Big Show and Braun Strowman headlined the field for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and both got off to good start throwing WWE superstars over the top rope easily before the behemoths came face to face.

He also became the oldest champion in the history of this tournament, at 35 years and 7 months. And arguably the game's greatest player followed that up in Indian Wells , beating countryman Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5 in Sunday's final.

On a gorgeous early-April evening that turned rainy by game's end, the two teams squared off before a national television audience on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. I mean that in a really good way.

The Jayhawks (31-5), who lost as the top seed to Villanova last season, now have fallen one win short of the Final Four as the No. 1 seed four times under Self.

This match was just a traditional wrestling match, so Shane tried his best to show off his grappling skills. Shane then found himself on the matt after being pulled onto the ropes, but was caught in a triangle by the Smackdown Live boss.
It was also a missed opportunity for Swansea, who could have pulled clear of the bottom three but instead remain deep in trouble themselves, just one point above Hull following their third successive game without a win. Arsenal had been hit by the loss of Mustafi's central defensive partner at half-time as an Achilles injury forced Koscielny off, with Gabriel on in his place.
And that goes for his caddie, too.

Elliott 2 times for 20 laps; J. Logano 1 time for 1 lap. The middle of the run was shaky for us, but that last run we held on, which was really nice.
It is always hard in the first game after global duty, all the players arrive at different dates , but we were very professional. But what it does tell us is that the Foxes are back playing like they did when they became champions of England last season, and in the hope that the worldwide break hasn't disrupted their current wellbeing then they look a solid wager to beat Stoke on Saturday afternoon.

Indeed, a whole lot of people had a hand in it. OR got the big nights they needed from their best players, with Tyler Dorsey , Dillon Brooks , and Jordan Bell filling up the box score and making huge plays on both sides of the ball. At the start of the second half, Kansas looked like it was pressing - shooting early in the shot clock and trying to push the pace - and that proved costly, only extending the Ducks' lead.
