Wawrinka est un bison, l'un des plus grands bagarreurs du circuit, un type capable de retourner pour la dixième fois sur une option qui l'a plantée les neuf fois précédentes parce qu'il la croit juste. Le Marseillais, poussé par son public, tient la dragée haute au fougueux Espagnol, mais perd le premier set 6-4. Sa saison 2017 a reflété tout son brio sur une telle surface, avec des gains en finale à Monte Carlo, Barcelone et Madrid, avant Paris. Read More »

Though there will be more . On Thursday, in a post-draft news conference, Jackson called the incident a "mistake". Don't be surprised if the run on freshman keeps going through the top 10.

Lions wait on fitness of Davies ahead of Maori challenge

NBA Draft 2017: Meet the Philadelphia 76ers selections, with videos and stats

To open the Draft the Philadelphia 76ers took Markelle Fultz as the overall No. 1 pick. In his sophomore season, the 20-year-old swingman took on a much heavier workload and dramatically improved his game on both ends of the floor. More than two dozen picks into Thursday night's National Basketball Association draft and not one senior has been selected . In his only season in college, Jackson averaged 16.3 points and 7.4 rebounds. Read More »

Ricciardo up for Baku F1 'like no other'

I think they still are favourites in terms of the fact their vehicle seems to work everywhere. Further adding to that harmony and stoking Hamilton is Mercedes' fight with Ferrari . Verstappen, tipped to be F1's next big star, needs a strong performance in Baku. Vettel showed all his mettle in Canada , however, when he started on the front row, dropped to last and came back through the field to fourth with a fighting display that earned him the Driver of the Day award.

Consecutive defeats mean New Zealand have already been eliminated but Hudson's side have earned plenty of plaudits for the way they have pushed both Russian Federation and Mexico in their two Group A matches. A clash with the tournament hosts - who need a win to go through to the semi-finals - looks tricky on paper but Osorio thinks it is the ideal game for his players to prove their mental fortitude by claiming the point they need to advance.

He's athletic and knows how to find the rim, which is nice for a team that doesn't have paint presence.

The first Test, from Eden Park

Asked today where this test compared with the others under his belt, Read said: "To be honest, this is probably the most important right now for me".

Read recovered and raring to go against Lions

perth_map

New Zealand on the other hand have picked a back three that contains two players that are especially good in the air, namely Otago's Ben Smith and Canterbury's Israel Dagg. The Lions are a Jekyll-and-Hyde side when it comes to the forwards and backs, and that naturally troubles me. They're going to have to meet fire with fire, and take this defensive line on by running directly at them and make them tackle. Read More »

LaVar Ball is already making National Basketball Association life hard for Lonzo Ball

As expected, Lonzo Ball was selected 2nd overall by Los Angeles in last night's NBA Draft . I think everybody understands playing with somebody with Lonzo's talent will make them better and also get them easier baskets. "I'm just looking forward to this opportunity". "I don't think the Lakers are going to make the playoffs", Ball said. Earlier in 2017, when LaVar Ball stated that he wouldn't accept less than $ 1 billion for an endorsement deal covering all three of his boys, ... Read More »

Andre Ward Vs. Sergey Kovalev II

I sparred 107 rounds for the first fight. Upon a WBA review, an immediate rematch could be ordered due to the way the fight was handled at the end, although Flores may not deserve it due to his dramatic behaviour after the punch. "I can not explain", the 34-year-old said. At the first Ward-Kovalev weigh-in, on November 18, 2016, the fighters had to be separated. "I knew I had about 30 seconds to go in the round and I just had to finish it". Read More »

Open at Baltusrol. I think I had played too many weeks in a row and not a day off and it really got to me. Koepka's mother beat cancer in 2012 and was watching on at home as her son captured his first ever major -- ironically the first ever his parents had not attended in person. Read More »
