The fourth preseason game typically presents a light workload for the starters, and that is expected to be the case on Thursday night for the Giants.

Nishikori, runner-up here in 2014, goes through to his second grand slam semi-final, where he will face either Juan Martin del Potro or Stan Wawrinka .

Murray has reached the final at seven consecutive tournaments and has spent nearly twice as much time on court here as Novak Djokovic, who was given successive walkovers in rounds two and three.
It also showed it was capable of surrendering 33 consecutive points to one of the best teams in the nation. There are a few future Ole Miss opponents on the list as well.

The National Football League season begins today with the Thursday night game between last year's Super Bowl teams - Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos in Mile High Stadium. For the first time , the defending Super Bowl champions will have a starter who has never attempted a pass under center. The Panthers still have their all-star quarterback Cam Newton.
I think that our new centre back Shkodran Mustafi is one of those, especially for those who do not know much about the Germany worldwide. I can't even go to the shops without getting harassed. This could be taken as a lack of enough ambition from Wenger, which has seen so many players sign with another club after being pursued by the Frenchman.
The Mariners led 3-0 after four innings as they touched up Sale for a run in three straight innings after Sale needed only 10 pitches to breeze through the first inning .

As he discussed this race, and this win, he admitted that he was glad it came before his 100th career start, which will come next Sunday at Darlington.

Unfortunately, it looks like we're headed for a game-time decision for the evening opener, making Gronk an extremely risky play in DFS leagues.

But based on Bradford and Zimmer's comments on Monday, it would not be too surprising if a quarterback change was made before the game.

The Romanian became the first player in the tournament to break Williams's serve, and the first to take a set off the top seed. A 6-2 6-3 triumph over Yaroslava Shvedova gave Williams her 308th victory in a Grand Slam, eclipsing the previous record held by Roger Federer.
