If it does transpire that Arsenal's 2-1 FA Cup final victory over Chelsea was manager Arsene Wenger's final game in charge it will have been a memorable way to sign off. If Wenger does continue until the end of the 2018-19 season, he would go past Sir Alex Ferguson's all-time record of Premier League games. Wenger got the tactics spot on in this one, and the Frenchman looked extremely pleased as he got to lift another FA Cup trophy.

She led by four strokes with four holes to play, but she made a bogey on No. 16 and Lee birdied 17. Player's point is valid - although we're ignoring the fact that a tournament being called a major automatically improves its merit - but it doesn't really matter.
When a squinting Benoît Paire emerged onto a sun-drenched Court Suzanne-Lenglen on Monday afternoon, the cheers and stomping of feet nearly caused a tremor.

Nadal was largely happy, saying: "I'm always at the start, happy for the victory". "A set up and 4-1 up, when I had him on the ropes I just played very bad games", he said. - The Dane, who reached the quarter-finals at Roland Garros in 2010, had to dig deep against a battling Fourlis, who pushed her more experienced opponent to three sets.
The game will be very hard. "If that is the way I want to go out, that is the way I go out because I have been here 22 years, I have won so many trophies, so if I wanted to play one minute and come off, I would have done". "It's great to finish the season in this way, to celebrate a fantastic season". This was Chelsea's 30th league victory of 2016/17 - the most ever achieved by a club in the English top flight in a 38-game season.
Those assumptions might be premature, however. While Russell made improvements during his second year in the league, many people see Ball as the better option to become the face of the Lakers and make the franchise relevant again. "We've got to get better in close games". As fate would have it, the Suns droped out of the top three as Phoenix landed the fourth pick in the NBA Draft.
Chicago Bears Radio Network sideline reporter Zach Zaidman said the Bears had released the former Gamecocks QB, who missed all of last season due to a broken leg he suffered during a preseason game.

Not that grid position is a vital route to Indy 500 victory: last year's victor, Alexander Rossi (another former F1 driver ), won the race after qualifying 11. "Yesterday was fantastic, the whole day was really fantastic". "We've got to be happy with this - it's the right place to start", Dixon said. Dixon was buying food for a group of drivers at the time.
And to put the Pens' freaky win into perspective, Pittsburgh's 12 total shots on goal were the fewest for a winning team in Stanley Cup Final history. And that's the thing: A team can do so many things right, as Nashville did in Game 1, but a few key moments can still provide the difference: a dumb penalty, a bad goal, an unfortunate bounce, an offsides only visible in super-slow-mo and so on.
The Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics 135-102 to clinch the best-of-seven series 4-1. It's also the third straight year the two teams have clashed in the finals, with Golden State winning the title in 2015.

As the Lions are en route to New Zealand, Hansen has told the Times in the United Kingdom he believes they will be predictable in how they play and does not feel their coach Warren Gatland is going to have an epiphany.
Opportunistic does not begin to describe this one. As Nashville kept Pittsburgh off the shot-counter, Rinne could've set up a lounge chair in the crease. It would give stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin their third Cup, one more than their boss - owner Mario Lemieux - earned during his Hall of Fame career and check off whatever boxes remain unchecked for a duo that is becoming one of the most accomplished in National Hockey League history.
The Celtics pulled the ultimate shocker over reigning National Basketball Association champions the Cavs when they rallied in game three for a 111-108 victory in the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side have agreed a £60million deal for the Monaco star , who will sign a five-year contract at the Etihad once he has completed a medical, having flown into Manchester on Thursday to complete his move. The fact that Silva was also reportedly a big target for Manchester United this summer will make the transfer all the more pleasing for City fans today.
In a statement, the club said, " Ernesto Valverde is the new FC Barcelona coach for the next two seasons". One of the sticks with which Luis Enrique was beaten during his third and final season which only delivered the Copa del Rey was his insistence on making Barca a more direct, counter-attacking force.
Those defensive abilities, coupled with his passing range and technique, are likely what intrigue Valverde . He promotes the youth players and he has a Barça way. "He played here for Barcelona as a player and I think he could be a good option, as could others". His most recent silverware was won when Athletic defeated Enrique's Barcelona 5-1 over two legs to claim the 2016 Spanish Supercopa.

The difference, obviously, is that the Senators and Ducks don't have options like Matt Murray .
The wicketkeeper-batsman is credited with injecting new energy after winning three of his first four games, two against the West Indies and one against lowly Zimbabwe. The 73-year-old feels a deep-seated orthodoxy, particularly surrounding their tactics in the field, has hurt South Africa in the past on many occasions and will need to discard that approach to win this tournament.
Rabada over-stepped the frontline on three occasions, which gifted Englandopener Alex Hales the opportunity to get his innings underway with a couple of free hits.

Aaron Ramsey , who scored the victor to deny English Premier League champion Chelsea a double, certainly hopes there isn't a change in the dugout. He returned to fitness in early 2017 but could not find a way into the side, with his only appearance coming as a substitute in the final league game of the season against Everton following Laurent Koscielny's red card and an injury to Gabriel.
For this iteration of Battle of the Network Stars to be successful, it will have to appeal to viewers who have never heard of the original show, while also capitalizing on the nostalgia of those who watched 35 years ago.

We will use it as motivation, but the idea of playing into it? That's how it goes when James, the best player of his generation, decides to make a matchup a priority.

Any time the Nationals and Giants played in 2015 or 2016 and Strickland was on the mound with Harper coming to the plate, San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy summoned a left-hander for the matchup. Strickland is a big boy and he chose to handle things himself, and he shouldn't need Posey to protect him.
