The Romanian wasted four set points but evened the match on her next opportunity in the tiebreaker after saving a match point. His backhand was particularly problematic. So I guess you've got to go through it, learn your lessons and figure out the way, how to get out of it stronger. No. 7 Marin Cilic . The World No 53 is looking to become the first player to reach the last eight on his Roland Garros debut since Rafael Nadal in 2005.
Mike Hoffman scored the victor 1 minute, 34 seconds into the third period, Bobby Ryan picked up his sixth goal of the playoffs, and Craig Anderson made 45 saves. Malkin, with 153 career playoff points and 1.08 points per-game, sits only a touch behind Crosby statistically in the post-season, but nearly without exception it's Crosby who's drawn (and continues to draw) the opposition's fiercest opponent, including Erik Karlsson presently and P.K.
Gennett, who had 38 career home runs in four-plus seasons, went yard four times against the St Louis Cardinals . The 27-year-old Gennett singled his first time up and then homered in four straight at-bats, including a grand slam. Gennett's actual first name is Ryan, but according to a New York Times story from 2014, he told a police officer as a youngster that his name was "Scooter"-after the Muppet-when his mother took him to a police station to scare him after he kept taking off his ...

James sounded grimly determined after Game 2. The theme of the 2017 NBA Finals , if not the entire playoffs, has been "super teams", with Kevin Durant's addition to the already high-powered Warriors appearing to have pushed that squad to a level even the Cavaliers of LeBron James , Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant can't reach.
Muguruza was outhit 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 by No. 13-seeded Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic . "If you had been in my shoes on the court, I think you would have understood", she went on, describing the defeat as a "very painful" one. No. 4 seed and defending champion Garbine Muguruza , No. 8 and former champ Svetlana Kuznetsova , No. 10 Venus Williams , No. 17 Anastasija Sevastova, and No.
When the Penguins made a rapid series of goal-mouth shots midway through Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final and none went in, most of us screamed about how awesome goalie Pekka Rinne was. Then the horn went off and whistles blew in a clearly unnatural manner. PK Subban arrived at Bridgestone Arena to prepare for Game Four with one major new accessory...a bag filled with mouthwash.
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus had previously said both Kinsler and McCann would be activated today. Jesse Chavez pitched into the sixth and allowed two runs to earn the win, with Bud Norris notching the save. Calhoun's sacrifice fly in the seventh gave Los Angeles a 5-2 advantage.

One night after hitting four home runs to match the major league record, Scooter Gennett tries to extend his stunning power surge when the Reds host the Cardinals again. Mitch Moreland and Hanley Ramirez went back-to-back in the fourth, and Andrew Benintendi hit a long solo home run in the fifth. He lined the next pitch just over the right field wall , sending Great American Ball Park into delirium.
Regulations state 20 overs must be completed to activate the Duckworth-Lewis method, which would nearly certainly have ruled in Australia's favour, but only 16 were played meaning the spoils were shared. With Steven Smith (25 not out) solid at the other end, Australia reached 83 for one in 16 overs. With heavy rain forecasted, Australia were expected to race out of the blocks but Warner and Finch both showed restraint to reach 40 unbeaten after seven overs.
Pittsburgh lost a challenge for goalie interference. "Having said that, I thought of all of the games we played, we generated the most chances and the highest quality and it didn't go in the net for us". No one challenged Crosby's goal, which came on a backhander after faking a slap shot. No word on whether she'll supply another note for Thursday's pivotal Game 5 in Pittsburgh.
Batshuayi is fully aware of how important Hazard is for both club and country, as a domestic and global team-mate. Chelsea romped to the Premier League title in Antonio Conte's first season at the helm, making up for a dismal campaign in 2015-16 that saw them finish 10th.

In the women's competition, Romanian Simona Halep established her credentials to become the newest French Open champion with a blistering 6-1, 6-1 victory over Carla Suarez-Navarro of Spain to reach the quarter-finals. Fifth seed Milos Raonic is the only casualty. "He was definitely the better player on the court today". "It doesn't keep me from playing, and it doesn't keep me from playing well", Wawrinka said about his back.
The more the Golden State Warriors dominate their playoff opponents, the more the Celtics' 13-point victory at Oracle Arena three months ago seems implausible. But Thompson's defense is his main asset. "That's what everyone wants to see, some of the best players in the world go against each other", Klay Thompson said.
Green to call upon in reserve roles. I just hope soon we can get back to talking about how the Warriors can beat Cleveland. Draymond Green does not care for your comparisons. I don't know. We'll never know. So I sound stupid, right? I recently rewatched some of their games against the Mavericks while researching a book and saw just how dominant they could be.
But things have changed, and here's something I never thought I'd say a couple of weeks ago: The Predators did this with depth scoring. We didn't give them break-aways. But this has been the best postseason ever for Rinne , a three-time Vezina Trophy finalist, a stretch ranking among the NHL's best. And the six-foot-five Finn used his big body to turn away shot after shot, even with the Ducks trying to crash the net at every opportunity.
At 1-all in the third set - del Potro took the first, then lost the second - there was the startling way Almagro paused at the baseline, placed his hands on his knees and shook his head, then fell backward onto the court.

P.K. Subban and Sidney Crosby exchange words after Game 3 on Saturday. "But I used some Listerine before the game, so I don't know what he's talking about". This morning, Subban did not admit to making it up. Or, you know, two of hockey's premier players - on hockey's premier stage - may actually have clashed over a grade-school insult.
That leaves them unable to sign new players until the January window, ending the club's bid to bring in Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette. Griezmann, who has a release clause in his contract set at €100m (£87m), scored 26 goals in 53 appearances for Atlético this past season.
This year's 2-0 lead came with the elite play from two elite MVP players. Kevin Love scored 27 points for Cleveland while Kyrie Irving added 19. The Cavs made a decision to put their team together in a different way. You be the judge of that, but there's no doubt James called the guy out. "If they win this one, they are on their way".
Thirteenth seed Mladenovic had been hoping to become the first French champion since Mary Pierce in 2000, but never really clicked on Court Philippe-Chatrier.

But the team with four All-Stars turned it around quickly, and went on a 10-2 run, to regain control of the game. One special guest in attendance, an avid LeBron supporter and global icon, Rihanna made an appearance at Oracle Arena that night and made sure her voice was heard throughout the night.
Thiem erased the first with a forehand volley and the other with a service victor that prompted Djokovic to roll his eyes. As Djokovic walked off the court after a 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-0 defeat that hurtled toward its finish in one of the most dismaying and statistically anomalous decisive sets of his career, it was hard not to wonder when he might feel fresh again.
A wreck behind Johnson drew a caution, but Johnson already reached the overtime line, and he was declared the victor over Larson, Martin Truex Jr ., Ryan Newman and Chase Elliott in the top five. Larson led for 241 laps. "That allowed Larson to get by us, and he set sail from there, even though there was another restart".

From that regard we have a side where a few youngsters have come in and are gradually getting towards strengthening their careers for India .
If I do that, it'll all even out". Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has talked about how the Warriors pursued Durant a year ago, after playing against him and his former team - the Thunder - in the playoffs.

Warawinka's win also coincided with World No. 1 Andy Murray storming into the quarter-finals after registering a straight-sets victory over Russia's Karen Khachanov . Third seed Halep, who like Pliskova can become the new world number one if she wins the title, claimed her first victory on clay in six attempts against the Spaniard.
