The winners of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness - Always Dreaming and Cloud Computing , respectively - were not in the field. "I'm happy for the owners and for Todd for giving me the opportunity".

The match-up between ORACLE TEAM USA and Emirates Team New Zealand is a rematch of the 2013 America's Cup Match in which ORACLE TEAM USA staged what many call the greatest comeback in sport. No, we are not, repeat NOT getting ahead of ourselves. But that won't stop others from drawing conclusions. Emirates Team New Zealand forged further ahead on day two of the 35th America's Cup with another clean sweep of Sunday's races in Bermuda.
She said: "I think I can not believe I'm the Roland Garros champion". But Ostapenko rallied, just as she would against two much more experienced players - the 2011 United States Open champion Sam Stosur in the fourth round and the former world No.
Mayweather said that a confidentiality clause is in place and that the financial purses of the fighters will not be disclosed. After the August 26 bout at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas , the talking point will revolve around the payouts, more than the quality of the 12-round fight .
The Bears-Packers game is typically the lone game he attends at Soldier Field, giving away or selling tickets he does not use. Knowing some Bears fans (ahem), it seems like a bit of a reckless move on the part of Beckman, who is reportedly merely seeking the right to Cheesehead where he pleases, per the constitution, rather than any damages.
After losing the tiebreaker, Kyrgios headed straight for his bag, put away his racket, shook hands with Young and walked off. Asked about his chances of recovering in time for Wimbledon , which gets under way on 3 July, Kyrgios said: "I'd play Wimbledon if I was injured pretty bad anyway".
The South African official will be under an intense spotlight at Eden Park, Auckland as both sides strive for immediate success in the three-Test series.

Crosby didn't score in Game 5, but he set up three goals and could have easily had assisted on three more. Colin Wilson could be back in the Predators' lineup for Game 5.

The Warriors would have made the NBA Finals this season without the services of Durant. Then Curry carried Golden State while Durant healed from a left knee injury that sidelined him late in the regular season.

I would have to go with Buck being that it is his job to know the background on the golfers and Edwards hasn't been a part of Koepka's life since December. Tommy Fleetwood was one stroke behind after the third round with a 68 but he also had an even par score on the last round.

Russian Federation went ahead in the first half of the Group A encounter through what was credited as an own goal from New Zealand defender Michael Boxall , and Smolov wrapped up the victory in the 69th minute.

The FIFA Confederations Cup is viewed by experts as a rehearsal for the organizers, with only one year to go to the FIFA World Cup.
Lewis Hamilton in action during the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix. The triple world champion finished the race almost 20s clear of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas , who sealed a comfortable one-two.

But Gatland has been heavily criticized by some British coaches and former players. "The players enjoy it, they buzz off one another". "We like to use the ball, we try to play a high-tempo, high-skilled game of footy". "It was a little bit harsh but we've been looking for it [the offside line] and I'm still looking for it now". The Chiefs are down most of their front-liners after their involvement with the All Blacks and the Maoris last weekend and the midweek side should pick up their ...

In that video, James is shown dominating much smaller and younger competition. James even got in some training, dunking over a group of kids half his height, if that. But I guess it is an honor to lose to the King himself when you're 10 years old? Time is serious flying. The Lakers have a ton of young talented players and just need that one player to put them over the edge and lead them and LeBron has proved time and time again that he is indeed that player.
The Dane ended the year as world number one in 2010 and 2011 and has reached two US Open finals without success. The court was hardly full of spectators on the damp, nippy day, unlike on Sunday when the 24-year-old fed off the energy of a packed house and ousted defending champion Garbine Muguruza amid warm sunshine.

The 20-year-old is the youngest French Open victor since Iva Majoli in 1997 and the first player to win a debut tour-level title at a Slam since Gustavo Kuerten in Paris that same year.

On FS1's Undisputed on Monday (via TMZ Sports ), Ice Cube said he'd allow Mayweather and McGregor to have the arena as long as their representatives "do what they're supposed to do and make us happy".
