Roger Federer thumps Nick Kyrgios with absolute masterclass


Team Europe needs another six points to retain the title they won in the inaugural competition a year ago heading into Sunday's final day, when three points are on the line in each of the four matches. This is the second installment of the Laver Cup , which has been dubbed the Ryder Cup of tennis although it lacks the tradition of golf's premier team event. Read More »

Rose opens Tour Championship with stellar 66


The speed caught him by surprise, running a 24-foot putt on No. 1 five feet past the hole. Since returning officially to the US Tour in January after having spinal fusion surgery previous year, Woods' 17 events have yielded two runner-up finishes among six top 10s and 11 top 25s. Read More »

Tiger Woods' title drought ends at last, claims first win since 2013


A small smile crossed his face as he peeked at the human sea lapping at his heels. "I clicked into a decent gear and got the job done". That focus has always been part of his strength. In March, Woods played a meaningful Sunday round when he finished tied for second at the Valspar Championship . After starting the day with a three-shot advantage over Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy , Woods produced a steady front nine, recording one birdie and eight pars at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta.

Finally we end with quotes from Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri who has admitted that his team are a way off where he wants them to be. We didn't have that.

Detroit Lions make easybeats of New England Patriots


During Sunday night's game between New England and Detroit , Matthew Stafford was making his pre-snap calls at the line of scrimmage when we audibly heard "that's a toss" come from the Patriots defense. Imagine if the Patriots traded Gronkowski following the move of receiver Brandin Cooks to Los Angeles. Gordon did go through what seemed to be a considerable workout during the pregame festivities at Ford Field, though, working with both inactive talents and his share of Patriot regulars. Read More »

Chicago Bears: Three keys to beating Arizona Cardinals


The Cardinals could use some consistency at this point. A field goal made sense for the Bears. As Nagy lamented the Bears' failure to score touchdowns on two of three red-zone possessions, Trubisky's inaccuracy was a painful subtext. "We got to enjoy this "W" because it was hard-fought", Trubisky said. On a fourth-and-1 with 4:34 remaining, Nagy had his offense on the field before wavering and calling a timeout - which could've been needed down the stretch run. Read More »

'Miracle of Medinah' was where back trouble started, admits Tiger Woods


It plays out over three days.

But as the Tour Championship looms, a tournament he's never won, Johnson is excited to get back on the course and fight for his first FedEx Cup title. Read More »

Jacksonville Jaguars avenge AFC title loss with win vs. New England Patriots


Greene was inactive for the season opener. A win on Sunday would re-establish them as a powerhouse, and it could help ensure they don't have to go to New England come January. First-round rookie running back Sony Michel is expected to make his National Football League debut Sunday against the Jaguars and Rex Burkhead should play, too, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Read More »

How Rob Gronkowski blew up a Patriots-Lions trade

The Lions tried to change Gronkowski's mind, but the 29-year-old refused to return their phone calls. Detroit will need an impressive effort to avoid a three-game losing streak at the start of Matt Patricia's tenure as he battles his former boss Bill Belichick. Read More »

Vikings get shredded, embarrassed and exposed vs. Bills


From there, Buffalo never looked back and utterly denied Minnesota a chance to climb back into the game. "There was a guy who was maybe three yards in front of the sticks". The performance likely sparked memories for Beane of a Wyoming win last November over Colorado State in which Allen led the Cowboys in both passing (138 yards) and rushing (60 yards). Read More »

Tiger Woods wins Tour Championship, Twitter reacts


As Woods played the 18th hole with the win in sight, fans ran onto the fairway, following the sueprstar. A bogey at the ninth followed. "I got off to a nice start and made some nice putts".

The Minnesota Vikings Had a Historically Bad Loss to the Buffalo Bills

The Bills basically fell apart last week with corner Vontae Davis retiring at halftime and stud rusher LeSean McCoy getting injured, but that didn't stop the team from dominating the Vikings and quarterback Kirk Cousins . Murray had one yard rushing on two carries, and the Vikings had just 14 yards rushing as a team. Maybe not, but you are supposed to compete and the Vikings failed to do that. Read More »

Garoppolo leaves 49ers game against Chiefs on cart with apparent knee injury


The 49ers don't come to Arrowhead Stadium often. That total broke the National Football League record of 12 for the first three weeks of a season, set by Peyton Manning during the 2013 campaign. "I think that was his fault", said Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston , who was trailing the play. "I pray he's not hurt, it's nothing serious, but as a quarterback you should step out of bounds.

Prior to Patriots practice on Friday , Bill Belichick addressed the obvious difficulties of playing against his former protege, Matt Patricia , admitting that some extra work will be required to prepare for the game. "So from time to time, other things surface and we look at those in a timely fashion", he said. You could limit the number of plays and try to do that, and I think we've done that plenty of times.

Jurgen Klopp makes admission about Mo Salah at Liverpool FC


Usually I don't explain substitutions at half-time, but I thought today it makes sense. "I would have done the same if it had been 2-0". Well there you have it, Klopp saw a problem and decided taking off Shaqiri was the best option. "He had already, before the PSG game, kind of a bruise on the ribs, which is very uncomfortable", Klopp said of his centre-half at his postmatch news conference. Read More »

Rodgers fears knee will get worse


I'm a traditionalist. I've watched the game and loved the game for a long time . The Packers did not practice on Wednesday. "I didn't get up off the ground thinking, 'Where's the penalty?' I saw a late flag and couldn't believe there was a penalty on the play". Read More »

Chelsea - Premier League - 23 September 2018


I think this is right. Born in Naples, the 59-year-old is following in an illustrious line of Italian managers to grace the English top flight. " In this moment, maybe it is not a great problem because we have played only six matches . "I am surprised", Sarri added. I am surprised. In Naples, the first month was very hard. "When Yarmolenko scored the two goals I was very happy for him", Arnautovic told The Sun . Read More »

Andrew Wiggins' brother after report of Jimmy Butler's trade request: 'Hallelujah'


Wojnarowski reports that Butler is indeed available, and prospective suitors should contact Taylor himself if they struggle to make progress with general manager Scott Layden. Whether that's due to some sort of undisclosed injury, or simply a personal decision by Butler not to participate is not clear. Otherwise, the Lakers would have to send out at least four players to get just Butler. Read More »

And Marca have now delved into Cristiano Ronaldo's state of mind - as well as those in his inner circle. "We're not women, we're playing football ".

Man Utd boss Mourinho takes fresh shot at Pochettino's Tottenham


Hard season for sure. "The spirit, the cooperation, the empathy, the communication - all of that improve the team". It's going to be hard.

Raul Jimenez wants to show his Premier League class at Manchester United

Despite being widely tipped to fail to do so, United have justified odds-on favouritism in each of their last three matches but they look short enough against a team as well-organised as Wolves .

Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to be 'ugliest' opponents

So, the start was good for us as a team and for him as well. Liverpool have won all six of their matches this season and sit second in the Premier League ahead of hosting Southampton on Saturday.

Mohamed Salah could set unwanted Liverpool record against Southampton - this is how


I never do that - only supporters can do that. "Obviously, you don't want to lose any one of them but if he does miss out, we'll prepare without Gabbi and Danny and still be strong enough". The start was good for the team and also him as well. "Dejan is close. He looks really fit [and] did a lactate test last week so fitness-wise he is - for his situation - on a really OK level".
