Scottie Scheffler extends dominant run with RBC Heritage win

A Masters green jacket wasn’t enough for Scottie Scheffler. Scheffler was running on emotional fumes fresh off his four-shot triumph at Augusta National, but full of purpose that more than made up for his lack of preparation for the RBC Heritage. The result not only was similar, it has come to be expected. He rarely missed a shot. He gave little hope to those chasing him. And he walked away from Harbour Town on Monday morning with another victory that extended a dominance not seen since the peak years of Tiger Woods. “I didn’t show up here just to have some sort […]

Casper Ruud into Barcelona quarters with tour-leading 26th win

Casper Ruud defeated Jordan Thompson in consecutive sets to earn his season-leading 26th win and secure a spot in the quarterfinals of the Barcelona Open on Thursday. The third-seeded Norwegian won 6-1, 6-4 to move one victory ahead of Australian Open champion Jannik Sinner in 2024. Ruud, ranked No. 6, is trying to reach his fourth final this year, having lost in Los Cabos, Acapulco and Monte Carlo. He will next face 40th-ranked Italian Matteo Arnaldi, who defeated Marco Trungelliti 6-3, 6-0 at the clay-court tournament.

Rafael Nadal returns to play with first-round Barcelona win

Taking it easy after months away from competitive tennis, Rafael Nadal was good enough to earn a comfortable first-round victory at the Barcelona Open on Tuesday.

Nadal converted on his second match point to seal the victory over the 21-year-old Italian ranked 62nd in the world. The Spaniard will next face Alex de Minaur, who had a first-round bye. “Taking everything into consideration, it was a good first round,” Nadal said. “I played the kind of match that I […]

Stefanos Tsitsipas overwhelmed by Monte Carlo title win

Stefanos Tsitsipas swept aside Casper Ruud 6-1, 6-4 on Sunday to win the clay-court Monte Carlo Masters for the third time in four years and then wept in his chair. Tsitsipas sat holding his head in his hands, briefly crying as he took in his first title of the year and biggest tournament victory in two years. “I’m very proud of myself today. I had been waiting for a moment like this for a long time,” said the 12th-ranked Tsitsipas, who reached a career-high No. 3 ranking in 2021. “I did not know what was going to happen this week.” The big-serving Greek […]

‘Error’ led to extra time on clock in Lakers win vs. Grizzlies

More than a minute of extra game time was added to the clock in the third quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 123-120 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday, an NBA spokesperson confirmed to ESPN. “We have confirmed that the game clock was inaccurately set in the third quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers-Memphis Grizzlies game last night at FedEx Forum,” league spokesperson Tim Frank said in a statement Saturday. “After a shot clock violation, the clock was set at 2:20 when it should have been at 1:14. The error was not noticed in real time by the teams, the referees, the […]

PSG favorites to reach semifinal despite Barcelona win

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez stated Paris Saint-Germain remain favorites to win the teams’ Champions League quarterfinal tie, despite his side winning Wednesday’s first leg 3-2 in the French capital.

William Byron leads Hendrick Motorsports to 1-2-3 finish at Martinsville

William Byron stated he had nightmares coming to Martinsville Speedway this weekend, remembering his last visit when he struggled to a 13th-place finish. He not only overcame those fears, he put a cherry on top of the weekend when Hendrick Motorsports celebrated the anniversary of its first victory 40 years ago by picking up No. 305. “It was one of the worst experiences as a team, but one of the best experiences to realize the resilience that our team has. And I think that that showed today,” Byron said of last October’s penultimate race of the season. This Sunday was […]

Celtics clinch NBA’s best record with runaway win against OKC

Oklahoma City coach Mark Daigneault likened the Celtics’ performance this season to that of a Ferrari. Boston’s latest triumph over the Thunder earned it yet another luxury with the playoffs fast approaching. Kristaps Porzingis had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocks, helping the Celtics power past the Thunder 135-100 on Wednesday night to secure the best record in the NBA and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Boston, which won its 11th consecutive home match, improved to 60-16 on the season to notch its 14th 60-win season in franchise history. The only other franchise with at least 10 such seasons is the Lakers, who have 11, […]

Saul strike earns Atletico Madrid hard-fought win at Villarreal

Substitute Saúl Ñíguez scored a late winner to give Atletico Madrid a hard-fought 2-1 triumph at Villarreal on Monday, as Diego Simeone’s side climbed back into LaLiga’s top four with eight matches left in the season. It was a much needed victory for Atletico after two consecutive losses and two wins in their last seven league matches had left them in danger of missing out on a Champions League spot next season. They were facing an in-form Villarreal side, who were on a four-game winning streak and undefeated in their last nine league matches, a run that earned Marcelino Garcia LaLiga’s Coach of Month award in […]
