2-time Wimbledon champ Kvitova wins return from knife attack


In the end a comfortable second-set tie-break was enough for the No10 seed to progress to the second round with a 6-4, 7-6 win. Looking up at her box, where members of her team wore matching t-shirts bearing the words "courage" and "belief", she added: "Thank you very much guys, I love you". Read More »

Vettel Wins Monaco GP to Stretch F1 Lead over Hamilton

Obviously it didn't work out very well for me. When asked how he felt about the race after looking downbeat on the podium, Raikkonen said: "I don't know". One more race like this and we'll be much further behind'. Raikkonen's stop opened the door for Vettel and to his considerable credit he took the opportunity with both hands, setting two fastest laps of the race, on ageing tyres, which allowed him to create the gap needed to stay ahead of his teammate.

Real Madrid's 2-goal Cristiano Ronaldo: Now our focus is Sunday


Ronaldo partnered Karim Benzema up front, with Isco supporting the two forwards. Toni Kroos completed the scoring in the 88th. And boy, has that plan worked out perfectly.

Cleveland's LeBron James dominates, locks up seventh straight NBA Finals berth

Penguins take Game 1 of Stanley Cup Finals

This was one that the Predators, who outshot the Penguins 26-12, should have had. They will pepper Murray often and find a way to steal this opener. "Never been in a game like that", Rinne said. He wasn't the kind of devastated some goaltenders might have been, losing this kind of game. Maybe, but the Penguins looked a step behind at the outset. Read More »

Penguins fight off Predators to take Game 1 of Stanley Cup Final

Pittsburgh jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first frame of this game, scoring a flurry of goals in the latter half of the first period. Pekka Rinne was shaky in yielding four goals on only 11 shots for the Predators. And with the Pens still fighting to even register a shot since the first period more than 10 minutes into the third, the Predators struck again, pulling within one after some decisive puck movement and another power-play goal, this one from Colton Sissons .

Hornqvist good to go for Penguins in Game 1

But Nashville is playing great, and Pittsburgh looked exhausted at times during the last few games. "Honestly, I could see it going both ways; I think the Preds may have a fair chance at it.

"When healed, I look forward to getting back to a normal life, playing with my kids, competing in professional golf and living without the pain I have been battling so long", ... Read More »

LeBron James And JR Smith Get Ready For Finals At Future Concert

Huddersfield wins soccer's richest game, into Premier League

It was not personal with Holloway. Their players danced in the dressing room, while sarcastically chanting, "there's only one Ian Holloway". And they said: "Okay give me the opportunity". The result means promotion to the Premier League , the consequences mean £175m or more but the entire day feels like so much more to the players, manager, supporters and everyone associated with the resurgent Huddersfield town; something so much more intense and intangible.
