Williams is looking for her sixth Wimbledon singles title, and her first since 2008 when she defeated her sister. "I've played in a lot of finals here", Williams said in her televised interview after the match. That's really all I can say. I miss Serena not being here. If Konta does make it back, there will be at least one member of her family that won't likely be in the stadium to witness it.
I couldn't ask for more, but I'll ask for a little more! She will be seeking her sixth Wimbledon championship and eighth Grand Slam singles trophy overall. "I definitely think experience helps, for sure". Konta's hopes of becoming Britain's first female singles champion at SW19 in 40 years were dashed as Williams stormed to a 6-4 6-2 victory.

City had seemed to be in pole position to sign fellow right-back Dani Alves on a free transfer, but the Brazil global knocked them back to join Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Giroud is also attracting interest from Ligue 1 with Marseille and Lyon keen to take him back to France, but both clubs have other irons in the fire with regards to their summer plans. Ironically, Ozil was linked with moves to all over Europe, after enduring a rocky season in England.

With that, Murray was up by a set plus a break in the second. Murray came into the tournament dealing with a sore left hip and it clearly impeded him.

Manager Bruce Arena had some interesting things to say. Frustrated U.S. fans began chanting "We want Dom!" Finding any possible method of improving the roster that will head to Russian Federation. I know very little about the squad the host nation will probably field during next year's World Cup, so the Considerations Cup would have the best - or perhaps, more accurately - the only opportunity to check out the players that might make Russian Federation proud next summer.

Aru won stage five of the Tour to La Planche des Belles Filles with a well-timed attack, pulling back 20 seconds on Froome in the process, but the three-time Tour victor said he would not make the same mistake twice. Froome is a long way from losing the Tour and - amongst other positive signs - the way he spent a good 15 minutes on his turbo trainer doing warm-down exercises before speaking to the press pack at the Sky bus strongly suggests he has a great deal of fuel left in the tank.

Louis Cardinals at this point. However, such a deal comes as no surprise as Quintana has served as one of the more notable trade chips from around the league this season.
