Simona Halep gets past Amanda Anisimova in French Open rematch

Simona Halep had no trouble reversing the result of her loss to Amanda Anisimova at last year’s French Open. Halep secured the rematch 6-0, 6-1 in just 54 minutes on Friday to reach the fourth round. Anisimova made 32 unforced errors to Halep’s seven. The top-seeded Halep extended her winning streak to a career-best 17 matches as she seeks a third Grand Slam title.

Horse named after fauci wins race at keeneland

A young Thoroughbred with a celebrity namesake broke his maiden during the second day of Keeneland’s five-day Summer Meet. Fauci, a 2-year-old colt trained by Wesley Ward, notched his first career triumph during his second career start in the opening race at the Lexington track on Thursday.
