Focused Kyrgios winning over his doubters

The controversial Aussie clinced the match 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-4 to give his nation an unassailable 3-1 lead in the tie, with Jordan Thompson still to face John Isner. Querrey had prevailed in his last meeting with Kyrgios in the semifinals of February's Mexican Open and has the same type of power-serving style as the lanky John Isner, who troubled the 21-year-old on Friday, before he turned the tables and claimed an opening day victory.

Chelsea restore seven-point lead, Manchester City win

FW Eden Hazard, 9 - Played at the top of his game with marauding runs that terrified Bournemouth's back line. For sure there was something, but I think it's right also to accept the decision of the referee. But on the other side we want the young boys to perform, ' said the United manager.

McIlroy needs 'best ever' Augusta round to win Masters

Last year, Spieth famously gave up a large lead on Sunday, triple-bogeying the par-3 12th hole. "I'm playing good golf, and if I play my game tomorrow, I think I got a good chance". And at that moment, Spieth channeled the late Arnold Palmer, asking his caddie Michael Greller, "What would Arnie do, Mike?" He drilled a 5-iron into 30 feet and narrowly missed the eagle putt.

Pep Guardiola vows to learn from testing first season and promises improvement

We can not forget Fabian has had a lot of problems the previous year here at Manchester City. It's normal when you have 7, 8, or 9 years as a manager to have a season where you don't have as much success as before. "Maybe after all the work we have done, one day we will start to be rewarded for the way we play football". With the FA Cup being City's only realistic chance of winning a trophy this term, it is likely to be the worst season of Guardiola's managerial career. Read More

Hoffman acknowledged he was simply trying to make pars in the tricky conditions - gusts approached 40 miles per hour, flung hats off patrons' heads and sent egg-salad sandwich wrappers blowing across greens and fairways - so he wouldn't shoot himself out of the event.

Davis Cup: France leads Britain 1-0 in quarterfinals

Lucas Pouille gave France a 1-0 lead over Britain in the Davis Cup quarterfinals by beating Kyle Edmund 7-5, 7-6 (6), 6-3 Friday. Britain won the Davis Cup in 2015, beating France in the quarterfinals. Today it just felt like I came off the match and said, "You gave it your best effort, it just wasn't good enough today". We probably did enough to win the first set, we won the second set and then we were up a break in the third set, so realistically we could potentially have won the ... Read More
