Muguruza defeated Serena Williams to win her maiden Grand Slam a year ago, but the 23-year-old needs to return to the final to stay in the world's top 10. His next opponent will be Kazakh Mikhail Kukushkin, who in the first round beat American Tennys Sandgren, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4. The 13th seed, hoping to become the first Frenchwoman to lift the Suzanne Lenglen Cup since Mary Pierce in 2000, said she hurt her back on Sunday and was not even sure she could make it on to Court Philippe Chatrier.
But Ibrahimovic was forced to watch from the sidelines, after suffering a serious knee injury against Anderlecht in the quarter-final. In light of the club's success, Jose Mourinho is now in line for a reward from the Red Devils . I'm happy, I'm fine with what we had in terms of individual performances. But it will not hide the fact that they still have some way to go before they can challenge for the EPL title.
Kerber gave credit to Makarova, while also admitting clay courts are not her strongest to play on. Cutting a troubled figure on court a world away from the feisty baseliner who last season battled her way to two Grand Slam titles, Kerber lacked the pace and power to trouble her fellow left-hander.
PARIS (AP ) - Serena Williams was back on the Grand Slam scene Wednesday, only she was snacking on a piece of fruit while sitting in a shaded part of the stands at the French Open , watching her older sister win in straight sets instead of playing a match herself.
Muguruza called you a legend and she said she couldn't ever imagine playing for so long on the tour with all her injuries and all of that stuff. She explained: "I did a wrong movement and I blocked my back". It's going to be a tough game. Reigning French Open champion Garbine Muguruza breezed into the second round, while fifth-seeded Milos Raonic got the better of Steve Darcis of Belgium in straight sets on Monday.
Around 50 people stood outside the league's offices in NY last week in a show of support for the quarterback. "People are accepting and willing to [forgive] people when they beat the hell out of women, sell drugs, do whatever and commit all kinds of crimes and you're able to forget that", said Smith.
He said that decision was not because of any pressure from Jose Mourinho , but because of the number of games Rashford has played for Manchester United this year. Southgate has frequently underlined the importance of giving young players tournament experience , but he called Rashford into his senior squad, rather than let him play at next month's Under-21 Euro in Poland.
Five years ago at Indy , Sato made a daring attempt to pass leader Dario Franchitti into Turn 1 on the final lap, only to spin out and crash. After the race, Sato spilt a bottle of milk over his head and celebrated with his finger in the air.
Makarova even pointed out that she never before had played a singles match in the tournament's main stadium (she was the 2013 French Open women's doubles champion ). Gavrilova is 100/1 for the title but 20/1 about her winning a quarter which also includes Mladenovic, Dominika Cibulkova and Venus Williams is perhaps the way to go.
Williams is a backup now with the Cavaliers, but he was a bright spot for the team in the Eastern Conference Game 5 closeout win over the Boston Celtics by scoring 14 points in 17 minutes. But the big question remains: Who is the greatest? The Warriors are stacked with players people don't like, Steph Curry because he's successful, Draymond Green because he plays like a Grayson Allen that people like and Durant because he abandoned Oklahoma City (although it's not like they got their ...
There's also the irony that Brown, the first coach who took James to an NBA Finals in 2007 - Cleveland was swept by San Antonio - will now coach against him, likely in the same leading role he's had for Golden State since head coach Steve Kerr was forced to take a break because of continued problems with his surgically repaired back.
That became 10 off 10 balls when David Miller (71 not out) struck Jake Ball for a six and a four off successive deliveries. Having won the first ODI by a 72-run margin on Wednesday, the hosts will be looking to seal the series as early as tomorrow and head into the 2017 Champions Trophy, starting 1 June in London, on a high.
Even then, it seemed that they would survive to contest half an hour of stoppage time until, for the second year in succession, the Scottish Cup final was settled by an injury-time goal. "For the season, what we've done - we deserve this!" "It would be quite wonderful for them to go through the whole season without getting beat". But goals from Leigh Griffiths and Stuart Armstrong gave Celtic a win in their 34th and final game of the season.
Arsenal hope to end the season on a high with victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final. Arsenal will miss out on a place in the Champions League next term after the north London side lost 10-2 on aggregate to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in the last 16.
The Cavs also squandered an opportunity to become the fourth team in history to start the playoffs 11-0. Then through the power of FaceTime, Isaiah Thomas appeared, looking for his understudy. They had previously won ten games in a row, this season. Even LeBron didn't see it coming. And it's making us tougher. It was an intense moment made unusual by the fact that a Cavs fan would heckle James for an off night when James is the one who delivered Cleveland a championship last June.
Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is excited by the prospect of securing a "double bonus" against Ajax in Stockholm on Wednesday - a piece of silverware and a direct route back into the glamour of the Champions League. "And, yeah, we'd be wishing next season that we are there". "Jose knows how to do this and I think to be a manager at the top level you need to have that because otherwise, nowadays in football there is no patience in football".
Around 20,000 United fans were in the Swedish capital for the game and security had been stepped up following the suicide bombing on Monday (May 22), which killed 22 people at the Manchester Arena. "I said last time that he was a bit short of matches - he's had some matches now but we've got players that have done really, really well for us in Adam Lallana and Dele Alli".
Never before has he scored 33 goals in a season for the club, and the Argentina worldwide only started 25 league games.
