Nastase, 70, a former world number one and two-time Grand Slam title victor, was kicked out of the tie on Saturday after swearing at the umpire, Britain s pregnant captain Anne Keothavong and their number one player Johanna Konta. Following the outburst yesterday, the ITF banned Nastase from attending the rest of the match. He then repeated the request when the captains posed together for photographs following Friday's draw, while putting his arm tightly around the shoulder of Keothavong, ...
Xavi said Pep Guardiola favours technical players like Tottenham's Dele Alli. Asked about Alli, he said: "I can not guarantee anything in life". His success continues an incredible run for Spurs in this category. I wasn't as clinical. Now 37, two years ago he traded in Catalonia for Qatari club Al Sadd and he is now enjoying the winter of his career, so to speak.
Gayle began the match on 9,997 runs and reached five figures in less than spectacular fashion with three singles. A dejected Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli said that they have to find a "winning formula" soon as they don't deserve to win with this kind of performance.
Fleury turned aside 49 shots in the clincher, including a first-period barrage that kept the Blue Jackets at bay until his teammates got it going, and another 19 in the third as Columbus tried to keep its season alive. "We didn't allow them to surge for many minutes in the third period", Tortorella said. "Everybody at this time of year is dealing with bumps and bruises".
It came after the Patriots said the delegation that attended was about the same size, but that this time around members of the football staff were seated. Only half of the New England Patriot's 68 players showed up to a ceremonial speech in their honor at the White House today. HORSLEY: Trump ticked through some of the key plays in that game the way he often describes his own run of the electoral map - Danny Amendola's fourth down conversion, Trey Flowers' big sack, a clutch ...
Sanders spoke to a boisterous crowd Tuesday night in Louisville as he continued a nationwide tour to rally Democrats trying to overcome last year's election losses. The upside for Stothert: Sanders brings out Republicans who want nothing to do with anyone who shadows Sanders. The main focus is to unite and grow the Democratic party.
It is going to be hard to forget this game because I am very, very angry. Aguero and Raheem Sterling combined to bundle the ball into the net just before half-time, but the goal was controversially ruled out because Leroy Sane's cross was adjudged to have gone out as it looped over the bar before curling back into play.
The one-time Madrid boss also spoke about the eternal debate regarding who's football's best: "Messi is a genius, Cristiano is a great player". "He's the best of all time and I have seen a lot of football matches and videos". "I think the great thing about Leo is that he continues to surprise", said Iniesta. The club argue that until a ruling on the appeal is held, Neymar's ban should be suspended and therefore allow him to feature at the Bernabeu.
Arsenal needed extra time to overcome Manchester City 2-1 in a likewise pulsating encounter on Sunday and Cech hopes to get a memorable reunion with old pals. Yaya Toure hopes to get a better deal from the referee as Manchester City turn their attention to Thursday's crucial derby against Manchester United .
I've still mocked them Solomon Thomas , but San Francisco is the biggest wild card in the NFL Draft. Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett is head and shoulders better than the next-best player. You can see last year's mock draft here: Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, Round 4, Round 7. But, getting a backup QB in round four is a solid investment.
That was followed by a clutch floater by Mike Conley to tie the game and send this thing into overtime (Leonard attempted a buzzer-beater but it was short). At the end of the night, it was up to Marc Gasol to make the difference. Frontcourt play: A series that saw LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol , and sometimes David Lee controlling the paint, Games 3 and 4 have been all Zack Randolph, Marc Gasol, and JaMychal Green .
The Warriors were cautious with Durant, who played well but only logged 20 minutes of time on the court. Jusuf Nurkic showed tonight that this series could have been interesting if he was healthy. Dennis Schroder shook off early foul trouble and a scoreless first half to finish with 18 points for the Hawks. Toronto shot 57.7 percent overall, a franchise playoff best.
The Gunners fell behind to Sergio Aguero's opening goal but saw Nacho Monreal equalise with a stunning volley, before Alexis Sanchez netted the victor in extra-time; his fourth Arsenal goal at Wembley, which is a club record. Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele can not have played many better games than they did against Chelsea, but it was the Premier League leaders who just kept on coming with the answers.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry , left, talks with head coach Steve Kerr during the first half of an National Basketball Association game Thursday, Jan. Golden State scored the first six points of the third quarter to forge a 78-48 lead.

Conte stopped short of confirming he would restore both Hazard and Costa to his starting team on Tuesday, saying: "I have another day to decide best 11 - they are in good condition, good form". While Lloris acknowledged Chelsea now have renewed confidence they can hold off Tottenham's challenge in the final six games of the season, the France goalkeeper is convinced his club won't surrender without a fight.
In recent seasons attacking players have dominated and the last victor who was not a striker, winger or attacking midfielder was defender John Terry in 2004. "He wants to win, and we work very, very, very hard in training for him", he noted. He is very important for us. And also I think these two seasons, and his award, will bring a lot of confidence in himself.
Did you see Chelsea star's brilliant reaction to Nemanja Matic's goal? "The first target for every great champion is to play for the team and to put your talent in the team", Conte said. "Five games to go, we need to pick up as many points as we can". Defender Gary Cahill is Chelsea's only doubt for the Saints clash. Yet, dressing room celebrations did not hit social media that quickly after the Blues 4-2 win over Spurs on Saturday.
City felt they should have had a penalty two minutes later when Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster came out to meet Leroy Sane and appeared to catch the City player as he attempted to round him. "There is disappointment but not just with the result but also with our play". Southampton have little to play for as they are comfortably above the relegation zone, but too far behind to the top seven to have a realistic chance of qualifying for Europe once again.
It is said that the in-demand Keane was set to join Everton as the elite Premier League clubs circle around the recently-capped England worldwide. In an ideal world Dyche would be able to keep his top players, but he sounded very realistic when discussing the matter and it doesn't appear to be too much of a problem for him at this stage with United ready to swoop for one of their former starlets.
Toronto leads the best-of-seven series 2-1. They lost that series in seven games to Vancouver. "It's not David and Goliath", said Trotz. "We're kind of helpless, we can't really help our teammates in that situation". So after three games instead of the Leafs needing to shut down the Capitals stars to have any hope of competing, it's the Capitals who need to find an answer for the Leafs youngsters and their seemingly boundless energy.
Defending championNadal registered a speedy victory over promising teenager Alexander Zverev , beating him 6-1 6-1 in one hour and eight minutes. Ramos-Vinolas was soon back in the match , though, holding in the second set and breaking Murray in the third and seventh games to pave the way for a decider.
Rafael Nadal has become the first person in the open era to claim 10 titles at the one tournament after a cruisy two-set win over fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos. On 4-3 I lost that serve. "He just showed me something, I don't know what", Goffin said . After all, Barcelona and Monte-Carlo are two of Nadal's favorite events.
Barcelona next will face Osasuna on Wednesday at home, while Madrid travel to Deportivo La Coruna.

The Frenchman, who joined Chelsea for £32m in the summer, was presented with the award on Sunday evening. Meanwhile, Dele Alli was named PFA Young Player of the Year for a second successive season. Antonio Conte admitted that N'Golo Kante may be lacking some of the leadership traits of John Terry, but thinks that winning awards may help him to become more vocal.
It is fair to say that Giroud did not have a great game that day, but then you could say the same for every Arsenal player out there so I do not see why the Frenchman is finding it so hard to get into our below par and struggling team. Wenger experimented with a back three of Gabriel, Laurent Koscielny and Rob Holding, and the 67-year-old explained that he had grown concerned about the Gunners' susceptibility to conceding from direct approach play.
Despite losing, Pittsburgh played their worst game of the series and still almost pulled out a win. Edmonton won Game 3 behind a third-period goal from Zack Kassian along with a 23-save shutout from goalie Cam Talbot , who blanked the Sharks for the second consecutive time after dropping the series opener 3-2 in overtime at home.
Norman Powell, making his second start of the series, produced 25 points to help the Raptors move within one win of reaching the second round, with game six in Milwaukee on Thursday. Millsap was 12 of 20 from the field and had five assists. At this point, the Warriors seem to be an operation that simply runs itself on the court.
Clarke MacArthur spent nearly two full seasons recovering from a concussion, wondering if he would ever be able to return to the Ottawa Senators . MacArthur, 32, said he doubted at times that he would be ready to return. "Well, now we're making a lot of assumptions", he said Sunday . Drew Stafford and Patrice Bergeron scored for Boston. They were on the road to ruin for a third straight season, lethargic and giving away points before Cassidy was promoted to bench boss in place of the ...
Kerr, who hasn't missed a game this season, said his symptoms have gotten worse during the last five days, and that he will not return to the sideline until they get better. He was at Game 4 at the Moda Center, watching from the locker room as the Warriors beat the Trail Blazers 128-103 to close out the series in four games.
In one of Serena Williams's interview when she was asked about a baby she said: "I definitely want to have kids one day". Williams would not be the first player to leave the game for pregnancy and enjoy roaring success upon her return, with Belgian star Kim Clijsters winning the US Open in 2009 and 2010 and the Australian Open in 2011 following the birth of her daughter in 2008.
Toronto went long stretches without testing Holtby until Morgan Rielly dumped a puck into the right corner. MacArthur scored on the rebound of Bobby Ryan's shot 36 seconds into the power play. Ottawa backed their way into the playoffs and looked as though they were destined for an early first round exit but they have found their mid season form and are looking more like a contender at this point as they have had their way at times with a strong Bruins team in this series.
Cleveland's point guard Kyrie Irving also scored 20+ points per game, and Kevin Love is a solid scorer as well. The Pacers have their backs against the wall and face a must-win Game 3 . "First half we had 19 shots in the paint and had six free throws". Conley finished with 24 points, Randolph had 18 points and Marc Gasol added 12 points for the Grizzlies.
PT. A person with direct knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Los Angeles Kings will name Stevens their next head coach. Release to come later today.

He is under contract at the Emirates until 2020, but Sky Sports add that Marseille are willing to spend up to £20m on the 30-year-old and make him their lynchpin up front. Should Arsenal fall out of European contention, there could be an exodus of particular players. "I don't think we could have done anything more".
The Blazers had their best chance for victory in Game 3, but the Warriors totally wreaked havoc and won the game impressively. Atlanta out-scored Washington 31-15 in the second quarter and led 59-50 at halftime. The Warriors have been a juggernaut with Kerr on the sideline (173-34 in three regular seasons), but when he missed half of last season due to the same back issues, the Dubs cruised right along without him (34-5 under interim coach Luke Walton).
