In the following set, Nadal took control, and it took until 5-0 in the deciding set for Australian Kyrgios to finally get on the board in a one-sided match-up. "First thing, the tournament is bigger than in 2005". But Nadal , a 16-time Grand Slam victor, saw encouraging signs from Kyrgios and asked the Aussie to continue playing tennis with passion.

    Houston Texans star and Pewaukee native JJ Watt took to Twitter on Monday morning to tell fans that he's "devastated" by being sidelined for a second season due to injury. The three-time Defensive Player of the Year was visibly in pain being helped off the field. And, after pacing the National Football League in total defense last season with Watt sidelined, the Texans are accustomed to playing without him.

  • Rendon makes key error, Nats unravel in 6th inning vs Cubs

    Sports

    Game 3 is Monday at Chase Field. Strasburg said he tried his best to pick up Rendon, but Rizzo singled to right just in front of Harper , who missed 42 games with a hyperextended left knee and returned last week. "A lot of it depends on our evaluation of Scherzer", Baker said. After an excellent 2016 that saw Roark post a 2.83 ERA in 210 innings, he took a step backward this year with a 4.67 ERA in 181.1 innings.

    Not a bad way to round off a 10th win from 10 qualifying matches.

Loew's initial plans to use the game as a first test en route to their title defense went out the window with first-half injuries to defenders Niklas Suele and Shkodran Mustafi .

None of it was enough, however, because Tate could not be stopped. A shame, really, because even though Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate was the star in CU's 45-42 defeat, Lindsay matched him almost blow-for-blow with explosive plays.

    Watt remained on his hands and knees for a couple of minutes while trainers checked on him. He was then taken to the locker room on a cart after being examined in a tent on the sideline. This makes it much more challenging. The defense has been a pillar for the playoff teams of the past and that looked to be the case again this year.
