Former tennis world number one Maria Sharapova says she will not request a wild card for Wimbledon and has confirmed she will go through the qualifying stages.

This Game 7 has the potential to have that kind of profound effect. Probably not for the Washington Capitals and Anaheim Ducks. The chips are stacked against the Penguins and although I hope I'm wrong, I see the Capitals making their run this year, a Championship run that that began the day Alexander Ovechkin was drafted.

Yet there remains intrigue to be had. This is also possible if City lose 5-1 and Arsenal win 2-1. Liverpool are fourth with 73 points , and Arsenal are in fifth with 72 points . Alternatively, a 2-2 draw at the Emirates and a 3-1 win for Middlesbrough (or a 3-3 draw and 4-2 win at Anfield) will also lead to a playoff for the fourth spot.

The Boston Celtics booked their spot in the Eastern Conference Finals with a 115-105 win over the Washington Wizards in game seven on Monday. "The only thing that matters is getting a win". After registering a big fat goose egg scoring in Game 6, Porter bounced back nicely with 20 points on 6-for-10 shooting to go with 10 rebounds and a blocked shot.

Washington treated its incredible Game 6 win over the Celtics like it deserved a national holiday, as if the Wizards had won something. Wizards: Dropped to 6-4 all-time in Game 7s.

Thomas scored just two points in the half, both on free throws, while missing all six of his field goal attempts. After all, he did come into Game 2 having scored 30 or more points in seven straight games, and did so once again on the number on Friday night to tie Michael Jordan for the most consecutive 30-point playoff games, so perhaps he was going to perform like he did regardless of that announcement.

Kevin Love had 21 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland, which led by 14 points after one quarter, by 72-31 at the half and by 46 after three. Thomas is an elite scorer, but a defensive liability at 5-9, and the Celtics hold the No. That one was critical to clinching Cleveland's first championship since the Browns won the National Football League title in 1964. One thing the Celtics would love to bring to the table is more offense from Isaiah Thomas.

The C's certainly weren't happy to get rocked in Game 1, and they need get and stay hungry or they'll be forced to be happy, or not, with a short series. Perhaps not.

Penguins defenseman Justin Schultz and forwards Bryan Rust, Patric Hornqvist and Tom Kuhnhackl seem to be doubtful to play in Game 4 and have been given the day to day status.
