She lost the first set 6-3 but when on to dominate her opponent in the final two sets winning 6-0, 6-0. However, a fourth retirement of the year - the world number seven also pulled out of matches in Brisbane, Dubai and Miami - casts doubt over her ability to challenge in Paris.

Arsene Wenger has hailed Alexis Sanchez's desire after he played through the pain barrier to help Arsenal beat Sunderland 2-0 at Emirates Stadium . A win over Everton on the final day will take them to that tally but if Liverpool defeat Middlesbrough and Man City do not get beaten at Watford, then it still will not be enough.
Nadal made a fast start to claim the first set with little trouble, and despite an improved showing from Djokovic in the second, it was the Spaniard who claimed the win and a place in Sunday's final against Dominic Thiem or Pablo Cuevas who meet in Saturday's second semi-final from 8.30pm on Sky Sports 3.
Asked when the board meeting is scheduled for, Wenger replied: "I think it is after the FA Cup final". "I did not - and will not - decide my club just for the money". "Hopefully that will be the case". "Of course we can need help to become better". Harry Kane looks set to win the Premier League Golden Boot, awarded to the competition's leading scorer, thanks to his four goals in Tottenham's 6-1 victory at Leicester on Thursday.
I don't know, like you don't know. " Arsenal have a great team, some really good individual quality, but we can beat them, as we showed at home". Now we have the FA Cup final. "We want to play in the best competition and that's why we want to be in the CL".

However, Djokovic salvaged the game and then immediately broke the Spaniard's serve to set up a meeting with Japan's Kei Nishikori , who swept aside another home favourite David Ferrer 6-4 6-3.

Obviously, [Monday] was the result that we wanted. The Penguins averaged 33.6 shots per game during the regular season, which ranked first overall.

Liverpool take on Middlesbrough over the weekend knowing that a win would guarantee them a top-four finish and Champions League football next season. "They were not really lucky at some moments".

That combined with the fact the Senators play a sytem that just isn't going to allow too much offense on the rush means Crosby and his linemates will have to generate in other areas at even strength. "Just like everyone else, he'll turn the page, and we will as a group and make sure we're better". That's what MVPs do, and we'll remember nights like these if Crosby gets hot to win another Conn Smythe.

The Belgian now leads the way with 16 clean sheets, but Hugo Lloris is only one behind the Chelsea goalkeeper ahead of Tottenham's trip to Hull City.
This season's Premier League title was Terry's fifth with Chelsea after wins in 2004-05, 2005-06, 2009-10 and 2014-15. However, there are question marks over the future of several key players in the Chelsea squad with Diego Costa, Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Thibaut Courtois all being linked with a move away from the club in the summer.
For me, this is very important, that every single player who wants to stay at Chelsea has the pleasure to stay at Chelsea . Only two other sides have won 30+ league games in top-flight season (Spurs 31 in 1960/61 and Liverpool 30 in 1978/79) & Chelsea would be the first to do it in a 38-game season.
