Novak Djokovic turned the page on his contentious U.S. Open exit and started his claycourt season with a convincing 6-3 6-2 triumph over wildcard Salvatore Caruso in the second round of the Italian Open on Wednesday. The world number one was disqualified in New York after unintentionally hitting a line judge with a ball during his fourth round match versus Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta. Djokovic’s frustration boiled over after dropping his serve versus Carreno Busta in the opening set at Flushing Meadows but 10 days on in Rome he did not face a single break point in an imperious display […]

Lakers eye JR Smith as top candidate to replace Avery Bradley

If the Los Angeles Lakers are going to win a championship when the 2019-20 NBA campaign resumes, they’re going to have to do it without the services of Avery Bradley. One of the leading voices in opposition of restarting the season amid the health and social unrest pervading the country right now, Bradley, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, made it official on Tuesday night that he will not be participating in the Orlando bubble. This is a blow for the Lakers, though likely not a catastrophic one. Bradley was a starter, yes, and he’s still a tough defender and reliable 3-point shooter on a team in short […]

Rays ace Blake Snell says he refuses to play for reduced MLB salary

Tampa Bay Rays star Blake Snell alleged he would not be playing this season for a reduced salary, particularly because the risk of getting coronavirus “is not worth it.” Snell protested Major League Baseball’s 50-50 revenue split with players for a season shortened by coronavirus in a video posted on social media on Wednesday. “You all have to understand, man, that I’m leaving – that I’m going to drop a salary, that’s not the case, because the risk goes through the roof,” said Snell when answering questions on his Twitch channel. “It’s a shorter season, less pay. “No, I must […]

Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni eager to coach if season resumes

Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni turns 69 on Friday, but ESPN’s Tim MacMahon reported D’Antoni “would have no reservations about being on the sideline if the NBA season resumes. Baxter Holmes of ESPN spoke to a pair of NBA general managers who expressed reservations about having older coaches and personnel work during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Based on all the information that we have today, probably people over 60 with preexisting conditions can’t go, for sure, no matter what their titles are,” one GM had stated. “Whether it’s a father of the star player or whether it’s the general manager […]

Players, Managers considering option of MLB’s all-Arizona idea

Boston’s Chris Sale, out for the season following Tommy John surgery, thought about the prospect of his teammates sequestering in the Phoenix area for an extended period if Major League Baseball and its players adopt an all-Arizona start to the campaign. “I don’t know if I could look at my kids just through a screen for four or five months. Same thing goes with my wife,” the pitcher stated Tuesday. “That’s a long time. But people have done it in harsh scenarios, I guess. I think there’s a lot of figuring out to do.” Putting all 30 teams in the […]

President Trump states NFL season should start on time

The coronavirus pandemic has led to a shutdown of sports worldwide, but the NFL has been able to sidestep any major postponements or cancellations by virtue of its regular season not being programmed to get underway until September. While that’s currently four months away, the COVID-19 outbreak has yet to reach its crescendo, and the league is doing all it can to avoid cancelling the 2020 NFL Draft — as some owners consider virtual drafting from quarantine. The outlook for professional football starting on time looks bleak on its face. However, on an April 4 conference call with major league […]
