It brought the Spaniard to tears and to the ground, sobbing at the baseline confirming his retirement from the match. "Try to think about his family, his baby.' And, sometimes, the heart is first". "I will have to fight again, but we are on a par", said Del Potro. "I tried to play a solid match". Del Potro was level at one set-all when Spanish opponent Nicolas Almagro had to withdraw through injury.
The most important late goal of all might have been one that didn't even earn a victory, but saw a three-point swing in the title race as Sergio Ramos powered home a stoppage time header to earn a point in a 1-1 draw at Barcelona in December.
It was the first time in the Open era that two Asian men had met as late as the third round in a Grand Slam tournament. It's been a while since Roland Garros regulars witnessed Nadal at the absolute peak of his powers; there have been times since his last win at the French Open , in 2014, when many would have wondered if he would have ever reached those heights again.
We wanted that point, like the rest of the teams. For racing to go ahead, the America's Cup rules require a minimum average wind of 6 knots (11 kilometres per hour). The Kiwis struggled to match the aggressive approach of Team USA skipper James Spithill, committing three penalties which cost a total of six boat lengths.
His departure had freed India up for a run-feast, Yuvraj (53) and Kohli putting on 93 at nearly 10 an over as all notion of Pakistani discipline evaporated. Kohli, who on Saturday had dismissed reports of a rift with India coach Anil Kumble, was equally contemptuous of Pakistan's attack during a blistering innings of 81 not out off just 68 balls that included six fours and three sixes.
Local media said that seven people, including a seven-year-old child, were seriously injured. Thousands were in attendance to watch one of the biggest matches in football - being contested by Real Madrid and Juventus - and panic ensued after rumours of an explosion spread.
Rafael Nadal beat Robert Bautista Agut to ease into French Open 2017 quarter finals. Mladenovic won a nailbiter 7-6 (4), 7-6 (6). A dominant Rafael Nadal cruised into the quarter final of the French Open . Muguruza, who was seeded No. 4 in Paris , beat Serena Williams in the French Open final past year. The Latest from the French Open (all times local): --- 11:15 a.m.
Woakes sat out the second and third One-Day Internationals in the recent series against South Africa but Morgan insisted he was 100 per cent fit ahead of England's ICC Champions Trophy opener. "I don't want to set a target to come back, I want to take it day-by-day and build it back up to return as soon as possible". That was in his right leg, and his subsequent side strain is on the other side of his body.
A frustrated Del Potro stood at the net for a while between the interval. "In these conditions, when it's slow and heavy, to be coming back is hard". "The tactical side is very important for me". Stan Wawrinka, the 2015 champion, was a 7-6 (2), 6-0, 6-2 victor against 28th-seeded Fabio Fognini. Fernando Verdasco of Spain defeated 22nd-seeded Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 and will face the victor of the match between eighth-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan and Hyeon Chung of South Korea.
Chung forced the contest into a deciding set as play resumed on Sunday, but the world number 67 double faulted on match point to gift Nishikori a 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (4/7), 0-6, 6-4 victory. "I go to a club and dance with the teacher there, he's a professional dancer". After a jittery opening set, Spanish fourth seed Muguruza rallied but 13th-seeded Frenchwoman Mladenovic perfectly played the key points in the decider to set up a meeting with either Venus Williams or Timea Bascinszky.
We have to decide whether to have an extra seamer or a spinner. The next teams in action will be Australia and Bangladesh at The Oval on Monday, and they were both set to practise on Sunday at the venue which is in close proximity to the attacks at London Bridge and Borough Market.
Tahir finished with four for 27 in 8.3 overs after former captain Hashim Amla scored his 25th ODI century to set Sri Lanka a target of 300 runs. But the combination of a brilliant catch and run out by AB de Villiers and the business as usual Man of the Match, Imran Tahir, snuffed out Sri Lanka's hopes as they nosedived to 155/6 with Imran finishing with 4/27 in 8.3 overs plus a run out.
Local media described him as a seven-year-old and said he was in a coma with serious chest injuries after being trampled in the crush. An explosion has been reported in Turin, where thousands of people are now gathered following tonight's Champions League final .
Guentzel's go-ahead goal 10 seconds into the third period slammed the door shut on Game 2 . Charges have been dismissed for the Nashville Predators fan who threw a catfish onto the ice in Pittsburgh during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Amid the post-game celebrations, Ronaldo shared an emotional moment with the iconic Scottish manager in the tunnel after the trophy celebration. "Me and my team mates have done the double". AS say: "The Colombian says farewell to Real Madrid in the hardest possible way". Following their 2014 and 2016 successes, Madrid have now won three of the last four finals, and the Portuguese told beIN Sports that Zinedine Zidane's charges were already thinking about adding another in Kiev in 12 ...
The Warriors improved their postseason record to an unprecedented 13-0 while the Cavaliers suffered just their second loss since the playoffs began in mid-April. We need to box out. "We could be a lot better than we were tonight", Durant said, without a hint of irony. He didn't mean dirty play. Cleveland rolled into the NBA Finals shooting a lights-out 43.5 percent from three through 13 playoff games.
This was also his first match with 8-time Grand Slam victor and former No. 1 Andre Agassi. Djokovic, with new coach Andre Agassi looking on, faces either compatriot Janko Tipsarevic or Portugal's Joao Sousa for a place in the last 32.
But Ferrari's resurgence this season, and Hamilton's auto troubles, makes a sixth victory far from a foregone conclusion. 'It's the most unusual the auto has felt in all the years I've been with the team. Wolff warned: "Inconsistency has been following us through the season, and on the opposite side Ferrari put the vehicle on track in Barcelona (testing) and they were quick from the get-go".
Marco Asensio closed the scoresheet in the 90th. With his back to goal, Mandzukic received the chipped pass from Higuain and used his chest to control the ball before hooking it over his shoulder into the far top corner. "He knows we're very good and we showed we were very good". - Juventus (4) conceded more goals in this game as they had in the rest of the campaign (3).
For the defense, two is better than three, even at a higher percentage, and even if those two points are coming in the form of six emphatic Durant dunks, the most in a Finals game since Shaq in 2004. That's just our whole mindset. Without Thompson hoarding extra possessions and the Warriors' defense holding Cleveland to just 34.9 percent shooting with 20 turnovers, the Cavs failed to crack the 100-point mark for the first time all postseason.
Durant was doing enough scoring for the both of them, with 23 points in the first half alone. Iguodala was the 2015 NBA Finals MVP. It didn't take long for this chatter to come around to his father and former NBA player, Mychal Thompson , who quickly dismissed that notion on Friday morning during an interview with SiriusXM NBA Radio.
Juventus were on top for large periods of an entertaining and open first 45 minutes, as Ronaldo's opener was cancelled out by Mario Mandzukic's superb overhead kick. Real extend their lead as the most successful side in the history of the competition with AC Milan's seven titles a long way back as second best.
It isn't time to rest yet because Golden State still has a lot of work left to do, it's a very good start. Just go play. And it worked splendidly for the two-time reigning MVP and Kevin Durant in their first Finals together. Game 2 is Sunday night. "Are we giving up runs at the basket?'" "When you are playing against a risky team like we are playing in the Warriors and they have great pieces, just got to stay disciplined, understand that every possession is all out".
A late break in the second appeared to have settled the world number two , but Schwartzman - playing his first ever third-round match at a Grand Slam - was his equal throughout the third. Similar backhand errors cost him the second and third sets too, as he lost the match 7-5, 6-3, 6-4. Defending champions Novak Djokovic and Garbine Muguruza were also in action later.
However it would not stop them from winning the game 3 to 1 against the Anaheim Ducks . That's all the Predators need to punch their first-ever ticket to the Stanley Cup Final . Game 6 is Monday night in Nashville . The league didn't specify what Getzlaf said and to whom. Saturday night was not for the faint of heart, as Anaheim's Josh Manson caught player after player with big after big hit, and Nashville's Filip Forsberg wielded his stick around like it was a sword.
The 24-year-old tweaked her back on the eve of the tournament and has struggled on serve ever since. "She has a great game for clay and she really pushed me through the last breath I had". Mladenovic raced through the first set but Muguruza pegged her back, with the Spaniard looking much more like the player who stunned Serena Williams past year than the one who has failed to make a single final since.
Day wound up going to a playoff with Horschel, but lost on the first hole after missing a short par putt. Everyone, including Horschel, expected the former No. All three players bogeyed the par-4 12th. Both Day and Horschel parred 17 and 18. Nor was it the way that Day, the 2010 Nelson champion , wanted to say goodbye to a venue where he picked up his first PGA Tour victory.
Upul Tharanga - captain for the day after Angelo Mathews failed a late fitness test on a calf muscle injury - too fell for the googly when he hit one straight to the deep cover fielder. Opener Niroshan Dickwella had given them a blistering start, smashing 41 off 33 balls. Sri Lanka were 68/1 after 8 overs while the South African scoreboard read 27/0 after 8 overs.
The first two games are at Golden State. Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James answers questions before an NBA basketball practice, Wednesday, May 31, 2017, in Oakland, Calif. He has made the Cavaliers better than they were. "It's been a long journey, some ups and downs but it's well worth it once you get here in the Finals", Williams said.
Del Potro, playing in Paris for the first time in 5 years after a series of wrist injuries, was quickly a break down in the second set. Murray arrived in Paris unsure what to expect of himself after a poor run of form on clay but his prospects for matching last year's run to the final suddenly look a lot brighter.
Barcelona have confirmed that Ernesto Valverde will be their new coach for the 2017-18 season. The 53-year-old has agreed a two-year deal to replace Luis Enrique at Barca after leaving Athletic Bilbao . His only honors as a player came in a two-year spell at Barcelona under Johann Cruyff between 1988 and 1990 where he lifted the Cup Winners' Cup and the Copa del Rey.
James became the first player to lead an NBA Finals in every major statistical category with 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.3 blocked shots a game previous year. While much has been made of Curry being healthier during these playoffs than he was a year ago when an ankle and then a knee injury hobbled him, Durant doesn't recall Curry being too hobbled when his Warriors beat Durant and Thunder in the Western Conference Finals .
That earned him a four-year, $28 million deal from the Saints , who could definitely use his help, having finished near the bottom of the league in defense last year. After a lackluster year in St. Louis with the Rams, Fairley landed a job with the Saints and found his rhythm in his sixth National Football League season.
World No.3 Jason Day has cursed sluggish starts at his hometown event but is desperate to find consistency in his final hit-out before the US Open. Matt Griffin and Curtis Luck (three-over) and Steven Bowditch (four-over) are nearing the end of their second round.
The long, arduous journey to European glory culminated under the roof in the capital, where Zinedine Zidane's men showed their killer instinct to win the title for the third time in four seasons. After another potent demonstration of his enduring scoring prowess, surely no Real Madrid fan can contemplate criticizing Cristiano Ronaldo now. His second goal, which put Madrid 3-1 ahead in the second half, was also his 600th in his senior career for club and country.
