Novak Djokovic spoke to Jim Courier - but it was a man in the crowd shouting "no more drop shots please!" who got the biggest laugh. "OK, thanks buddy", Djokovic responded with a laugh. Williams has beaten Sharapova in 18 of 20 matches and hasn't lost to Sharapova since 2004. In saying that, they have only met once at a Grand Slam, which was in 2014, at the third round of Wimbledon .
And he is sure the Pats are headed to the Super Bowl , just don't ask him the score. The first two times the two quarterbacks met in the playoffs (following the 2003 and 2004 regular seasons), before anyone truly knew that Brady was exactly as good as he is, it was seen as more of a battle between Manning and Bill Belichick.
Sharapova, though, blew her out in the third round and Federer is now on court. I was really in big trouble that first set. "It's not something I ever aimed for but when it happens, it's very special", he said. Sharapova asked, responding to a question in an on-court interview. "Is this a friendly reminder that I'm getting older?" she joked. "I never thought that I'd be playing at this age, honestly", she said in Melbourne , after moving into the Australian Open fourth round.
Villa's move for Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy is also under threat after it emerged Bayer Leverkusen have launched a bid to sign the France worldwide. 'It's my job give the recommendation to the board and chief exec. It's their job to work on the financial part, I don't get involved with that. "Sometimes it doesn't work - then if I spent my energy complaining about this and that - this isn't the way I work".
Pressed on whether he thought his side remained in the title race, Van Gaal said: "We have a lot of matches to go". I think everyone knows the importance of this game regardless of positions; we could be top or second from bottom. Though chasing possession for much of the second half, Stoke could have taken all three points if not for a superb double save by Petr Cech midway through the second half.
March 5 I will behead [Dos Anjos] and carry his head through the streets of Rio de Janeiro. A reporter then asked McGregor what he made of the racial allegations made by Floyd Mayweather a few week ago: "I think Floyd needs to learn before he opens his mouth I am a product of many cultures".
The Eagles have been searching for a new head coach since Chip Kelly was sacked with one regular-season game remaining. Why hire a guy who you've always beaten so easily? "I'm excited about what he does in the future up there in Philly...." He then followed Andy Reid , the all-time winningest coach in Eagles history, to Kansas City.
Or it might be the fact that the Royal Rumble will be entirely focused on WWE champion Roman Reigns, who will enter the match as the No. 1, struggling to fight off 29 other competitors. Think my predictions are right? The goal is to make it entertaining and show that Bryan that, even in defeat, has the ability to still compete against the top-level talents in the company.
We've got to continue to get better. The Cavs should feel much better about themselves after playing the Nets . The Cavs are a heavy favorite to reach the NBA Finals, where most people expect them to face the Warriors or Spurs . Right now, they are not the only hot team either, and their next games are of great important because they are trying to expand their lead. "I'm a big culprit in that", Lopez said.
The Hammers beat City 2-1 at the Etihad earlier in the season and are just four points off a Champions League spot in sixth place. The Citizens have a good record against the east London side at Upton Park in recent seasons. "To supporters, it may look like "Sam goes out and nothing comes in", but the reality is far from it. The Sam Byram money is available right now, but we have to bring in the right players".
Matt: The first thing coming to mind is injuries on the Patriots. Rob Gronkowski carted off the field in Denver. They didn't even try against the Chiefs and Kansas City finished with close to 38 minutes in time of possession. The Patriots played the Broncos earlier this year, and while obviously they'll take a hard look at that film, the Patriots defense knows it's going to be different this time around.
The 14-time major champion led by two sets to one and then 2-0 in the decider in Rod Laver Arena but Verdasco clinched the last six games in a row to win an epic battle 7-6 (8/6) 4-6 3-6 7-6 (7/4) 6-2. "I didn't really think I would have another match five sets against Rafa here in Australia". I don't know how. He played more aggressive than me. The Chinese is ranked at 133rd and this win takes her to the second round of a grandslam tournament, which is now her best performance in women's ...
I've been so fortunate to have that opportunity 20 years in a row. It means so much for me. Pretty much all season, Hewitt had been looking forward to playing at the All England Club: "I couldn't wait until Wimbledon started basically". He's an unbelievable player. As a young player, Hewitt identified with the movie character "Rocky", and would cheer himself on by shouting "Come on, Rock!" during matches - a rallying cry that eventually was shortened to "C'MON!" Lleyton Hewitt's name ...
Long story short, Arizona's defense can key on Newton thanks to the lack of playmakers on the Carolina offense. "No matter what happened on the last play, you've got to go good, bad or ugly on the next play, and that's basically what our football team did".
Ferrer paid rich tributes to his childhood hero. Some of the game's most iconic players then recognised the 34-year-old's contribution to tennis. No Australian man has won the title since 1976. But inevitably Ferrer worked his way to serving for the match and claimed victory when Hewitt's forehand was wide. Hewitt now takes on the non-playing captaincy role of Australia's Davis Cup team.
Chicago even led after the first quarter but the Warriors bounced back by outscoring them by four in the second quarter and one point in the third to get the lead and hold it. The next leading scorer was J.R Smith who potentially could have contributed more to the team , but unfortunately was ejected from the game at the 10:41 mark of the third quarter.
Every measure, that is, except sack rate and winning percentage. The play that changed that game was a trick play on offense by Josh McDaniels. "We're focused on the Denver Broncos and the game". And while Brady's numbers are as good as they've ever been, the future looks uncertain for Manning. Thomas is the better wide receiver over Sanders, and a beast when he's fed, so I'm going with him.
The game was being billed as Cleveland's shot at revenge for last year's NBA Finals and a previous loss at Golden State on Christmas Day. They did. Sloan (12 points, nine assists) briefly gave the Nets a 15-13 lead by stealing a James pass and going in for a layup with 5:25 left in the first quarter, but it was the last lead Brooklyn had all night.
Spieth held a five-shot lead going into Sunday's final round and was never troubled, hitting seven birdies to post a 30-under total of 262. That was one short of the record Els set at Kapalua in 2003. "Michael [Greller, Spieth's caddie] said on the 18th fairway, 'Man, what a way to make a statement.' I thought that was cool". "It's just solid golf, and I think you're going to see a lot of that like he did a year ago".
Woods won his seventh PGA Tour event in his 38th start, and he had 18 wins in his first 77 tournaments. He wound up in a spectacular battle with Els at Kapalua, with both players making eagle on the par-5 18th, both making birdie on the 18th in a playoff, and Woods winning with a 40-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole.
Along with his gripe about Gronk pushing off, Marshall noted that the tight end is one of the most hard matchups to deal with in the NFL. But coming off a two-touchdown game against the Chiefs, it's probably better for Gronkowski to just let his play on Sunday do the talking.
Registrations will start from Wednesday onwards at 6 pm IST. The phone - only 1000 sets, will be available in the country via invites on Flipkart. While many other manufacturers are focusing on the entry-level segment, LeEco is more focused on capturing the market share of premium devices.
Kelly said that they have been interviewing prospective coaches and hope to have the staff fully assembled within a week or so. This includes the quarterbacking conundrum of deciding a starter between Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert.
Tottenham finally got the better of Leicester this season at the fourth time of asking as they reached the FA Cup fourth round with a 2-0 victory. Both sides are again likely to make several alterations to their starting line-ups when they meet at the King Power Stadium - but Pochettino insists that does not mean they are prioritising the Premier League over a cup run.
The Pacers had control in the fourth quarter and had the chance to seal the win, but were unable to as the hosts rallied and were able to send the game to overtime. Miles and Paul George. George won the NBA's Most Improved Player award in 2013 and could conceivably make a case for winning again. The fuel has been George, averaging those 27.6 points, which is almost double his career average of 15.2 coming into the season.
New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will be assessed on a week-to-week basis and has no fixed target for returning to action following an injury in Sunday night's defeat to Denver . "All I know is I'm the starter this week versus the Chargers...." "Is it better?' The answer is, 'I don't know, because I'm not putting any pressure on it, and it's sort of immobilized, '" Manning said Wednesday in the Broncos" locker room.
Safety Jeremy Cash, ACC defensive player of the year and team leader with 101 tackles; QB Thomas Sirk, who has thrown for 2,462 yards and 15 touchdowns and rushed for a team-leading 648 yards. afety Jeremy Cash, ACC defensive player of the year and team leader with 101 tackles; QB Thomas Sirk, who has thrown for 2,462 yards and 15 touchdowns and rushed for a team-leading 648 yards.
Romo missed seven games with the left clavicle injury earlier and it doesn't look promising for him to return after he left the game with the same injury on the final play of the third quarter. Cassel stepped up after replacing Romo on Thanksgiving and threw for 93 yards and a touchdown. The Dallas Cowboys helped the Carolina Panthers remained undefeated.
But while Luck's absence meant there was playmaking and production that had to be replaced, it also meant there was an absence of leadership. With the victory, the Colts improve to 5-5 on the season and remain in a tie with the Houston Texans for first place in the AFC South.
After practice, Kubiak said nothing's changed from his perspective: Osweiler's his quarterback this week and the goal is to try to get Manning healthy and back on the field as soon as possible. As we see the rise of the next batch of talented players such as Cam Newton, we must also see the demise of the legends like Peyton Manning . Do we get to that point? That means the team already went into Sunday's game with just three tight ends and three receivers.
But if it does, it does. The most important thing, though, is that I get to have a life with my kids . "It's more important for me to be with my kids ". Woods said he Sam , 8, and Charlie , 6, that he doesn't live in the same house as their mother because he "made some mistakes". "But let me get to where I can pass the time and really be a part of my kids' life in the way that I want to be part of it physically, not just as a cheerleader".
The Hornets had won seven straight games at home. "That's what makes him a great player", Walker said. James fittingly distributed praise to those who helped him reach the milestone. Game two was another story with the Mavs overcoming a 15 point deficit, point guard Mario Chalmers tying the game with 24 seconds left only for Dirk to hit the game winner with his injured hand.
Kelly said. " Because my right guard doesn't really care what our free safety does ". Therefore, it's not really efficient for [right guard] Matt Tobin to listen to the instruction going on with the free safety. Me, personally, I came into the league and it was a team where we didn't leave the facility until seven o'clock. His comment, along with another one relating to the speed in which the team practices, during Tuesday's meeting with reporters could be one of the first real signs that ...
Despite both players operating in similar positions, the 24-year-old is confident they can develop a fruitful understanding. I spoke with him before the game and we said he would play 65 minutes.
They got a taste of what Spartans quarterback Connor Cook is all about on that early October day two seasons ago, watching the junior complete 25-of-44 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns as Michigan State scored the final 16 points in its 26-14 win at Kinnick Stadium .
