Aguero , City's main striker since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2011, brought up 20 Premier League goals for the season in the 36th when David Silva fed Leroy Sane, who crossed for Aguero to score.

It is not the first time Wenger finds himself looking to the world's oldest cup competition for solace, with the FA Cup having enabled him to apply silver finishes to the season in both 2014 and 2015. They won a lot of trophies, now it's like a new generation. Mesut Ozil continued his fine recent form with a top class display against the Toffees so he should retain his place in attack but it's going to be interesting to see who Wenger goes with up top.

For the moment the relationship with Agassi is a trial, and it seems highly unlikely the American will want to spend too many weeks on tour. "Andre was one of the few people that was actually on my side and supporting me", said Djokovic yesterday.

Given Arsenal's major problems in defence , it's a freakish call by Wenger to leave out his number one for such an important game and calls for the Frenchman to leave will only increase if the decision back-fires. Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed that Arsenal did not allow him to watch them train when he visited England as Italy manager two years ago.

When you stay for a long time in the same team , someone can forget this. But Arsene Wenger is, for sure, a really good manager for me. "I believe there's a difference between being criticised and being treated in a way that human beings don't deserve".

The 59th-ranked Coric became the first lucky loser to reach the quarterfinals in Madrid . "It's going to mean to me a lot", Coric said. That was very obvious.

Last time it happened, was 1983 when Yannick Noah triumphed at Roland Garros. Yannick transcended sport in the way that Andre Agassi did, and Bjorn Borg. She'd be a popular champion as would be Juan Martin del Potro , the giant Argentine whose huge potential, illustrated by his 2009 US Open victory, should have been the first chapter in a Grand Slam success story.

He will be among the substitutes for Saturday's FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley, where the newly-crowned champions will be looking to complete the Double.

ANTONIO CONTE is swatting up on his English over the summer to make him an even more dominant force in the Premier League. In this kind of company, you won't stay top for long by resting on your laurels. "He said to me: "You are the player I want in my team and to improve my team". It is a new role for me and I am still getting used to it, " Moses said.

With each thunderous performance he adds, and this postseason has been full of them as the Cavs coasted into a rematch with the Golden State Warriors at 12-1, he draws ever closer to his idol. "We're definitely disappointed. I felt like if we weren't, it would be a problem", Bradley said. They dared to do it is because when your season is characterized as championship or bust all you care about is how you play and feel in May and June.

With the news that Conte is looking to stay at Chelsea , a new deal is imminent. I had everything, and then I took a risk to come back to a country that was not that happy with me, ' Luiz said. Conte picks Thibaut Courtois between the sticks, while his back three is Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and David Luiz . The switch to a 3-4-3 formation, which Conte has highlighted as a pivotal point in Chelsea's season, came during the second half of September's 3-0 loss at Arsenal .

As an added bonus to the favourable opening game, Murray will not face the likes of Djokovic or Nadal until the final . "So I definitely see him as probably number one favourite for this title". The women's draw is wide open, and defending champion Garbine Muguruza has been in awful form in 2017―the women's title truly is up for grabs. Julia Boserup will be Kvitova's first opponent of the year after the two-time Wimbledon champion declared herself fit following the draw.

Now they meet for the rubber match starting June 1 in Oakland . "Obviously we want to take that to the next series and try to be great and see what happens".

No two teams have ever entered The Finals with better playoff records, as only Cleveland blowing that big lead in Game 3 vs. Boston prevented both from coming in 12-0. That's the only thing I didn't do. "We still obviously have to keep growing as a group, getting better", said Al Horford following the contest. "For a team like this, with this many veterans, it sets up flawless for how we're built".

The Cavaliers ended the Celtics post-season - winning the game, 135-102. The results were sobering for any Boston fan to watch as the Cavs won three games at the TD Garden by an average of 30 points. Gerald Green scored 14. There's also the irony that Brown , the first coach who took James to an NBA Finals in 2007 - Cleveland was swept by San Antonio - will now coach against him, likely in the same leading role he's had for Golden State since head coach Steve Kerr was forced to ...

Why? Thomas had his front tooth knocked out in Game 1 of the conference semifinals against Washington, but it was a lingering hip injury he aggravated later in the series against the Wizards that would end his season prematurely.

Golden State already is the first team to begin a postseason 12-0, and the Warriors would love to go unbeaten the entire way - as daunting of a challenge as it would be to do so against King James and Co.

It was Lowrie's team-leading 16th multi-hit game of the season and extended his modest hitting streak to six games. It is possible that with a new pitching coach, they are introduced to different pitching mechanics and drills that may put them out of their comfort zone or it could simply just be aging as both of these players are beginning to get out of their primes.
