Tennis star Nick Kyrgios pulls out of Olympics, cites lack of fans as well as injury

Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios has pulled out of the Tokyo Olympics, saying playing without spectators “doesn’t feel right.” Kyrgios says an abdominal injury was also a factor in his withdrawal from the Games, which begins on July 23. “It’s a decision I didn’t take lightly,” Kyrgios posted on Twitter on Friday (Australia time). Just hours before Kyrgios’ statement, Olympic organizers banned all crowds from the Games amid Tokyo’s ongoing state of emergency due to the coronavirus. Kyrgios maintained it was his “dream” to compete at an Olympics. “And I know I may never get that opportunity again,” he wrote. […]

Roger Federer reaches fourth round, Nick Kyrgios drops out of Wimbledon match after suffering abdominal injury

Roger Federer reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for a record-extending 18th time on Saturday by defeating Cameron Norrie 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 on Centre Court. The eight-time Wimbledon champion had a slight wobble in the third set when he missed two break points at 5-5 and was then broken at love by Norrie. After trading breaks in the fourth set, Federer broke again for a 5-4 lead. He will play No. 23-seeded Lorenzo Sonego of Italy on Monday. Norrie was the last British man left in the tournament. Also, fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev defeated American Taylor Fritz 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (4) and No. 7 Matteo Berrettini advanced past Aljaz […]

Hawks blow out Bucks 110-88, tie series at 2-2 as Antetokounmpo leaves early with injury.

The Atlanta Hawks took on the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 on the Eastern Conference Finals Tuesday night, looking to even the series at 2-2 on their home floor. Without Trae Young, Atlanta certainly had their work cut out for them if they wanted to get back in the series. In what was a wild game, the Hawks were able to take home the 110-88 victory. The Hawks started the match on a 10-2, as it was team effort out of the gates. Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kevin Huerter, Lou Williams and Clint Capela all scored inside of the first three minutes […]

Durant scores 21, Nets beat Bulls 115-107

Kevin Durant had 21 points and eight assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Chicago Bulls 115-107 on Tuesday night despite Zach LaVine’s 41 points. Joe Harris added 17 points and Bruce Brown had 15 as Brooklyn won its second consecutive after a four-game slide. Chicago had its three-game winning streak — and probably its postseason hopes — end. Brooklyn, which lost guard Kyrie Irving to an apparent facial injury early in the second half, led 93-74 at the start of the final period and sat its starters for most of the period. LaVine, who had 12 points in the fourth, forced them back in by scoring eight straight to […]

Atlanta Braves’ Travis d’Arnaud put on 60-day IL with thumb injury

Atlanta’s injury woes continued in Saturday’s 6-5 loss in extra innings to the Blue Jays at TD Ballpark. Catcher Travis d’Arnaud exited the match with a left thumb injury sustained in the sixth inning, and he was placed on the 60-day injured list on Sunday morning. d’Arnaud was substituted in the sixth inning by Alex Jackson, but due to a strained left hamstring, Jackson was placed on the 10-day IL. After Randal Grichuk hit an RBI single with one out to put runners on first and second for the Blue Jays, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. ripped a double to left field to plate a […]

Dallas Mavericks’ Kristaps Porzingis to make season debut vs. Charlotte Hornets

Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis will make his season debut Wednesday versus the Charlotte Hornets, coach Rick Carlisle told reporters. Porzingis will start and be on undisclosed minutes restriction as he returns from October surgery to address a lateral meniscus injury in his left knee. Carlisle said there will be a “range of minutes” that he is looking for Porzingis to play, but that will largely depend on how he feels. The coach stated he will communicate with Porzingis throughout the game and check on how he is holding up. “The big thing is to get him back out on the floor,” Carlisle […]

Detroit Pistons rookie Killian Hayes out indefinitely with torn hip labrum

Detroit Pistons rookie guard Killian Hayes is out indefinitely after suffering a torn labrum in his right hip. The Pistons informed Wednesday that Hayes will continue to be evaluated by the medical staff, but no updates were made available on a timetable for his return. The team stated an MRI performed Tuesday confirmed the diagnosis. The 6-foot-5 rookie suffered the injury during Monday’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. He exited the match in the third quarter after falling while defending a fast-break layup attempt by Jrue Holiday. Hayes, 19, was drafted seventh overall by the Pistons last year and has started all seven games this […]

Serena Williams withdraws from French Open

Serena Williams suddenly ended her latest bid to tie the record for the most Grand Slam singles titles early. She withdrew from the French Open on Wednesday due to an Achilles injury. “I’m struggling to walk, so that’s kind of a tell-tale sign that I should try to recover,” the tennis player stated during a press conference. Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam singles champion, injured her Achilles in a U.S. Open semifinal loss to Victoria Azarenka earlier this month. She was set to play Tsvetana Pironkova on Wednesday. But after a “very short” warm up, she and her coach decided it […]

Possible Pirates trade chip Keone Kela placed on injured list

The Pirates announced Thursday that they’ve placed right-hander Keone Kela and infielder Colin Moran on the injured list. Kela heads to the 10-day IL with forearm tightness, while Moran is on the 7-day concussion list. Both moves are retroactive to Aug. 24. Righty Nick Mears and infielder Will Craig were recalled in a pair of corresponding moves. The IL placement for Kela significantly hampers the team’s ability to extract a meaningful return in a trade for the righty, who’d been the Pirates’ most obvious trade chip prior to Monday’s deadline. He can technically still be traded even while on the IL, but he won’t be entitled for activation […]

Yankees place Giancarlo Stanton on IL with hamstring strain

Giancarlo Stanton has returned to the injured list — and the Yankees don’t know when the injury-plagued slugger might be ready to return to the lineup. Stanton, who was placed on the 10-day injured list on Sunday with a left hamstring strain suffered in Saturday night’s game in Tampa, will receive an MRI on Monday in New York to determine the gravity of the injury. After being limited to 18 matches last season, the former MVP — who also suffered a calf strain during spring training and was sidelined in last year’s ALCS —will make his third trip to the injured […]
