Connelly's father is Canadian and his mother American, so the young golfer carries dual-citizenship. His chances at the British Open are almost as mysterious as Royal Portrush. The 25-year-old failed a drugs test during the 2014 British Amateur Championship at Portrush, and that despite informing authorities at the time that he took beta blockers to combat anxiety induced by his stutter.

Djokovic led 5-1 in the ensuing tiebreak and although Federer hit back to 5-4, the top seed capitalised on more errors by the Swiss to restore his one-set lead. After dueling for 4-hours and 57 minutes, during which the sun rose and dipped, and in the distance the church bells of the St Mary's parish sounded, Djokovic's knife-like play cut through Federer's sparkling range silencing the fandom in this clash of extremes, not opposites.

Riyad Mahrez's stunning 95th-minute free-kick sent Algeria into their first Africa Cup of Nations final in 29 years as Nigeria were this time the victims of late drama. I spoke to defender Kenneth Omeruo on Friday and he said it reminds him of the attitude when they won the title in 2013.

The two service breaks were enough for Halep to clinch the first set, and there was no let-up in the second as the underdog sealed victory over her fellow former world No.1 in 56 minutes. Williams came into this event on the back of numerous retirements and withdrawals and her run to this stage was very hard to foresee. Also, I really believe that there is a chance if I listen to him.

And as monumental of an achievement as No. 24 would be, the number itself has little to do with her comeback story. Williams was limited to 12 matches in 2019 until last week. Svitolina, the first Ukrainian woman to reach a Grand Slam semi-final, and Halep traded shots aplenty and breakpoints in the opening two games which took over 20 minutes to complete but Halep emerged on top with a 2-0 lead.

And even though the Lakers missed out on Leonard, Pelinka said the team has cap space to pursue another max free agent in the summer of 2021 and that he continues to learn from mistakes made in the past like last summer. The NBA, though, would not allow Johnson to be a part of any official free-agent meetings. Though he feels fortunate to have landed on the Lakers, Green says that Leonard and George felt they pulled a fast one, too.

Federer has rolled through Wimbledon 2019, winning all five of his matches in four sets or fewer. But the 31-year-old Bautista Agut held his nerve to eventually level the semi-final at 6-4 off a fortuitous net cord.

Tournament hosts England and reigning champions Australia will contest the second semi-final at Edgbaston on Thursday, with that match able to continue on to Friday if a reserve day is required.

Kvitova had not changed her winning tactics - that wasn't the issue. Victor here in 2011 at just 21, Kvitova lifted the title again three years later. Yet for all her wilts and capitulations, there is a fighter in there. The worrying thing is that it could catch up with her at some point. She was unfortunate with a net cord that dribbled over but strong play from Kvitova took her to set point, and the home favourite dragged a forehand wide.

But George wasn't Kawhi's first recruiting target. Leonard was the NBA Finals MVP and Green was a starter for Toronto last season - the former Spurs helping the Raptors win their first title.

Leonard's absence will also give emerging forward OG Anunoby a bigger role in the offense, while the Raptors will base their success (as usual) on defense.
