So he's gonna be there. "We'll see what the future brings", the 29-year-old Djokovic , who fell out of the top spot in the ATP rankings in November, said. "You're an fantastic player". "But today was one of these days where I really felt the ball great on the racquet, and a lot of risky shots went in".
Johansen was one of the biggest offensive threats for the Predators , having scored 3 goals along side 10 assists. Anaheim is also an impressive 5-2 on the road during its current playoff run. "I thought we had energy coming out, and it deteriorated throughout the game", captain Ryan Getzlaf said. And he has been a consistent threat in these playoffs, with a pair of five-game points streaks.
Arsene Wenger is yet to confirm whether he will still be manager next season while the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are also uncertain, with both players stalling over new deals. With Laurent Koscielny getting suspended, I really do hope we have Shkodran Mustafi fit and available for the final at Wembley. But results at the Liverpool match and Manchester City match would have to go against either, to have seen our consecutive champions league appearance continue.
Marco Silva hailed the unwavering support of Hull City fans after the Tigers waved goodbye to the Premier League with a sorry 7-1 defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur. I am really disappointed because (the performance) is not like we work during the week, it is not how we prepare for the match. I think a couple of the lads who came in the January transfer window did a good job but can't be considered for the player of the season.
We have to keep working harder, keep getting better and hopefully next season we'll finish first. Not even 24 hours on from hosting its final game, the demolition team have moved quickly at White Hart Lane . None of the last 37 million spectators who entered... The times at Tottenham are certainly a changing. And it is the goals from academy graduate Kane over the last three seasons that have propelled the side up the standings.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has declared coach Zinedine Zidane the best in the world. As it turned out, Cristiano Ronaldo settled Real nerves at La Rosaleda Stadium by netting early, and Karim Benzema scored soon after half-time to render Barca's 4-2 comeback victory against Eibar meaningless.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has vowed to pick a strong line-up against Southampton in Wednesday's Premier League tie at St. Mary's. "Other clubs fighting for the top four would like to be in our position". I can not go to Man City or to Arsenal and put five kids at the same time all together. Spurs were deserved winners in their final match at White Hart Lane as Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane were the goalscorers.
Josh Harrop scored on his first-team debut, while Demetri Mitchell, Axel Tuanzebe, Scott McTominay, Joel Pereira and Angel Gomes were given game time at Old Trafford. We would be disappointed if we weren't in every competition. I can understand the lads' tiredness; we've had a lot of games. "We've had a lot of games but we need to give it one more big push on Wednesday night".
Arsenal icon Thierry Henry has claimed Alexis Sanchez is desperate to play in the Champions League next season amid speculation the forward could be on his way to Chelsea in the summer transfer window. Look at Chelsea last season. Sure, a decent Europa League run next season might hide the cracks, but Arsenal can't hide from the fact they have underachieved this season.
Chelsea had won the Premier League title that season and, incidentally, was playing Sunderland in the final game at Stamford Bridge, a match it won 3-1. John Terry , the Chelsea captain, was making his 717th and final appearance for the club he joined as a school boy in 1992. Chelsea benefited from having no European distractions, allowing Conte to lean heavily on a very tight group of first-team players, and adding depth to his squad is now of fundamental importance.
Smart started in Thomas' place and engineered the C's second-half comeback from a 21-point deficit. We're going to play hard, consistently, the entire game. "Defensively, we've got to be better". "They moved the ball, and they kept us at bay", he said. "We have to play a lot better". Those guys made plays.
The Mets were on a seven-game losing streak that included an 0-6 road trip before taking the first two contests against Los Angeles. With 13 home runs, he was on pace to hit 50 for the first time in his career. But the Angels would prefer the best hitter in baseball get more opportunities to swing. New York Mets' Jose Reyes (7) celebrates with Michael Conforto (30) after Conforto hit a home run during the seventh inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Angels Friday, May 19, ...
Players without an agent have until May 24 to decide whether to remain in the draft or withdraw and return to school. "You know the University of Arizona". Five-star prospect Emmanuel Akot announced Monday he will graduate from high school early and enroll at Arizona for the 2017-18 season. With Akot reclassifying, Arizona nearly certainly is no longer a threat to land Pittsburgh transfer Cam Johnson or prized freshman Brian Bowen.
After he appeared to be locked in back at his right guard position, he's going to be on the move again this offseason, as the Bears will try him out at left guard this offseason, according to the Chicago Tribune . Left guards are often more athletic than right guards, as they're asked to pull more, and they're also tasked with protecting the blind side for right-handed quarterbacks.
He's now found the back of the net in each of the three games of the series. The Ducks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.7 percent of their power play opportunities. "I mean he just blows my mind", Johansen, who took a high-sticking penalty on Kesler, said of the extra treatment he's received from the Anaheim centre.
Some fans had been hoping that they would be given the option to opt out of Europa League fixtures altogether, but that is not the case. Our 29-year-old, so impressive in central midfield this season when fit, reckons that our Champions League qualification will help us attract players of serious note in the next few months.
A 3-4-3 formation was designed for Holding to play alongside two experienced center-backs, but with only Mertesacker likely to be available Wenger would have to look to youth and inexperience to persist. The same report claims that there are no major concerns over the Chilean international's involvement to face Antonio Conte's side this weekend. Wenger has attempted to solve their problems of late by switching to a back-three, but with his resources depleted, another tactical switch could ...
City also beat United to the Premier League title in 2012 in dramatic fashion when Sergio Aguero's injury-time victor snatched the trophy out of their rivals' hands on the final day of the season. The Argentine full-back announced on Saturday that his nine-year spell at the club - which included 333 appearances - would come to an end when his contract expired this summer.
Weltman will join the Magic as their president of basketball operations, a Raptors team official confirmed to The Canadian Press on Monday.

Probably not for the Washington Capitals and Anaheim Ducks. Against the Maple Leafs, he allowed 14 goals in the first four games, before giving up just two goals in the final two. The Capitals won back-to-back games to force Game 7 at the Verizon Center, and look to have momentum on their side for the deciding game. But after the last two games, anything is possible.
But me personally, I didn't have it. In Game 6, Bryant bounced back with 26 points on 30 percent shooting, 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal. The Celtics made 18 3-pointers for the game. "I feel like you have to have some type of adversity in order to be successful", James said. We wanted to go at six seconds, and the hope was that they'd have less than a second if they did get the ball.
Despite the off-night, James is still averaging 32.2 points a game in the playoffs. Bradley had 20 points and hit his second game-winner in Cleveland over the past two seasons. Of course, the failure in Game 4 of the 2011 Finals in Dallas, when he managed just eight points. His season is over because of a hip injury, and although he's not around, his presence was felt by his teammates who rallied to keep their season alive.
Hahn shared the first-round lead after an opening 64, but slipped back with a 70 on Friday before another impressive round for him at TPC Four Seasons that included a 65-foot chip-in birdie at the par-4 No. "I got to try to get better from this experience and I feel good about my game". I think he would tell us he wasn't as sharp at times as he would've liked to have been, but obviously now has something to build on ahead of the Memorial in a couple of weeks' time.
Now we get on a plane, go down to Pittsburgh , have a better game there. "It happens. It was a crap game in every aspect". "We made a decision to shorten the bench a bit and come back (fresher) for the next one", Karlsson told reporters, with Boucher admitting as much in resting fellow defenseman Cody Ceci and forward Derick Brassard in the final period.

The trio lit it up, combining for a plus-9 Corsi, while Aberg led the Predators with a 72.43 Corsi for percentage (16 for, 6 against) at 5-on-5 as the Preds generated 70 percent of the scoring chances with him on the ice at even strength.
Some obviously that you have known about, and that is very hard for a group of players to cope with that. There are some other reasons that we will talk about another day.

That lasted two laps just as it was about to end Mercedes called Hamilton in for a set of soft tyres, an inspired gamble with 30 laps to go. Hamilton was crawling all over the back of Vettel and on Lap 44 of 66, he unsurprisingly overtook the Ferrari with the soft tyres on.
The move to United offered a chance to restore Mourinho's reputation as a victor - but a season with just a League Cup triumph and no Champions League place would surely have his critics crowing again.

And so it was at the Rome Masters after a heavy loss to German prodigy Alexander Zverev in the final. Soon after the match , he confirmed the news.

Seriously, there are TONS of people outside the arena. They will wait for the victor of the Ottawa Senators-Pittsburgh Penguins series, which will have their Game 6 on Tuesday, with the Penguins a win away from returning to the Cup for a second straight year.
It is not the prestige of the Europa League title that would change the perspective on the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager's first year at United but the place that triumph would secure in the continent's top club competition. Everything has happened very fast, that's how it feels, but I also know that I've been lucky to live great experiences so far in my career. What's more , 18 of the last 22 Champions League and Europa League finals have gone the way of the side we have ranked ...
Nick Ritchie scored the game victor and the Anaheim Ducks ended a game seven jinx by beating the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 Wednesday to book their spot in the NHL Conference finals.

'You look how strong the Premier League is, all top sides, and we've shown on our day we can beat anyone, ' said Milner.

Brace yourself, Atlanta, the Hawks may find out what it's like to be without Millsap next season as it seems nearly assuredly so he'll test the free-agent waters.

Nadal said the infection was "nothing important" but was a "little bit painful". Playing his first match after firing his whole coaching staff, Novak Djokovic struggled.

There are some big names that are behind me so I wouldn't be surprised if someone jumps out going, four or five under in the first seven holes or so and to have to play catch-up".
