Great serve, great hands and fantastic backhand", said Nadal. He's such a big player. "He's a risky opponent".

Barcelona certainly owe their enormous success in recent years to the managerial nous of Luis Enrique . The Barca coach bows out after three seasons in charge with nine trophies to his name.

Wenger revealed after the game that the Arsenal board will hold a meeting on Tuesday, with his future expected to be decided. Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey netted a goal each for Gunners.

In November, he overcame a six-shot deficit in the final round of The Nedbank in Sun City with a 63 and in the last 10 months, he has finally proved himself to be the prolific victor so many expects predicted he would be.

According to the Daily Mail , Rooney has big-money offers from China but wants to return to Everton , 13 years after leaving them for Manchester United .
He's getting to the hoop better than ever and the array of sharp shooters surrounding him makes him that much more unsafe. With lingering side effects from a 2015 back surgery, Kerr has been sidelined since coaching the first two games of Golden State's first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers, with Assistant Coach Mike Brown taking over on an interim basis and leading the team to 10 straight wins as the Warriors became the first team in NBA history to enter the NBA ...

They will once again be facing the Golden State Warriors for the third year in a row. I wore short shorts so you could see my undershorts underneath.

Now we need to take it into one more game at Wembley . A refreshingly modest and grounded young man, Swift recalled: "Coming back from injury, I had to get up to speed and fight my way in again".

Key all-rounder Stokes, who hit his second one-day worldwide century as England took an unassailable 2-0 series lead over South Africa at the Ageas Bowl on Saturday, has managed to bowl only five overs in two matches this past week. It's a very odd injury, he aggravates it when he bowls, in his delivery stride. In any case, the West Indies have not qualified for the Champions Trophy, which means that Marlon Samuels , who likes to get under the skin of his opponents, will not be around ...
An unprecedented Finals trilogy was finally set, and still, James had no interest or energy to engage the topic. "They just stayed resilient all year, got to the playoffs, and we really stepped our game up", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. James, with three titles, is still chasing Jordan's six. The Cavaliers basically conceded the East's top seed to the Celtics at the end of the regular season by opting to rest its starters in advance of the playoffs.
Eight laps later, he had the papaya orange No. 29 in the lead, where he stayed for six laps. 2016 Indianapolis 500 victor Alexander Rossi and Andretti Herta Autosport with Curb-Agajanian co-owners Michael Andretti and Bryan Herta each accepted a "Baby Borg" trophy from Scott Gallett, vice president of marketing for BorgWarner, for being the winning driver and vehicle owner at the 100th Indianapolis 500.
The Warriors were coldly efficient (well, okay, those 17 turnovers were bothersome but not ultimately an issue) at both ends of the floor and all points inbetween, and the result and its margin were both fair representations of the difference between the two teams .
On Instagram, the Frenchman shared a photo of himself wearing the white cloth of Muslims performing umrah and standing in front of the Kaaba, a black cube towards which Muslims turn for their five daily prayers and captioned it "Most handsome thing I've seen in my life".
The first "threematch" - rematch of a rematch - in league history. Before one of the Warriors' games against the Spurs in the conference finals, Brown told reporters about how he was nearly arrested while driving to the arena, and how Gregg Popovich laughed at him the whole time.
As a result of this, many view the Warriors as a considerable favorite to win the championship. "That is nearly, like, kind of disrespectful because it's nearly like it's been easy for us to get here", Curry said. "But everybody seems to be healthy this year, so it's going to be not only at the four spot but 1-through-5 and with our bench, it's going to be a hell of a matchup".
Though he took a well-deserved second, post-race the Finn's demeanour made it clear he was none too happy.

Ed Jones came in third, just behind Castroneves , who was a mere three vehicle lengths from Sato at the checkered flag. Sato , one of six drivers in the race for the potent Honda-powered Andretti team, was perhaps the least heralded part of a lineup that included Formula 1 star Fernando Alonso , former Indy champ Ryan Hunter-Reay and star-crossed Marco Andretti .
Sato's previous best finish at Indy was was in 2013 and 2015 when he finished 13th in both races. Two-time Formula One champion Fernando Alonso delivered a masterful performance - a masterful first Indianapolis 500 experience - until his Honda engine failed on Lap 179.

Both teams have compared favorably with one another in this postseason. Jonas Jerebko hasn't played much, but made some big plays when he did. "I don't care who you're playing, to make it to the NBA Finals , to win your conference finals, it's a big task", Brown said.
Arsene Wenger guided Arsenal to a record 13th FA Cup success with a deserved victory over 10-man Chelsea before declaring his future will "be very clear" following a board meeting on Tuesday. "If I am going to change to a country that is not Spain, I wouldn't go". "But when a game starts you support your team. Chelsea are a strong team, you've seen that over the season, so we knew it'd be tough", said Holding, according to the Daily Mail .
Chelsea started the second half with more tempo and Footballer of the Year N'Golo Kante warmed David Ospina's fingers with a deflected drive from distance before Moses brought a fine save from Ospina after Costa played him in. That change came ahead of a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on April 17 and Arsenal would lose just one game with that formation, which Wenger stuck with for Saturday's final despite missing a number of key personnel.
