    Roger Federer lost the final match of his tennis career Friday, ending a career that spanned 24 years and included 20 Grand Slam titles, alongside his longtime rival and friend Rafael Nadal. The 41-year-old Swiss legend concluded his career in the Laver Cup in London after announcing last week that the three-day teams tournament would be his last. Federer, who competed as part of Team Europe in the tournament, pushed his final match to a tiebreaker against Team World duo Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock, with a final score of 6-4, 6-7, 9-11.

    Tsitsipas would go on to a 6-2, 6-1 victory – providing Team Europe with a 2-0 lead over Team World. The climate change activist's self-immolation happened only hours before the heavily-anticipated final match of tennis legend Roger Federer.

    After years of resentment, Kell Brook and Amir Khan finally fought, but Brook was too much for Khan to handle. Brook got the win via TKO in round 6.  British boxing welterweights Kell Brook and Amir Khan have disliked each other for years, but they finally came together on Saturday, Feb. 19, at the Manchester Arena. Brook fought with anger, and Khan fought like a shot fighter. The lead-up to Brook vs. Khan was contentious. There was a lot of smack talk and some pushing, but it was all Brook in the ring. Khan (34-6, 21 KOs) once had a promising career, but his questionable chin has always been his Achilles heel. Coming in against Brook, Khan had lost four of his five losses by knockout. He can add another digit to that tally. Brook is on a mission ???? #KhanBrook pic.twitter.com/jsByIcEnSl — ESPN Ringside (@ESPNRingside) February 19, 2022 Brook (40-3, 27 KOs) had three losses on his records and was stopped in all of those fights, but not because he was knocked out cold.

    Emma Roberts is of the belief that she doesn’t need to live up to the last name she shares with her aunt, actress Julia Roberts, and she is right at home making her own way in show business. "I never aspired to be her. I love her so much. I love her work, but I'm just doing my own thing," the 30-year-old daughter of actor Eric Roberts and Kelly Cunningham told Tatler magazine for the publication’s March 2022 cover feature. Roberts has certainly paved her own path in the roles she has selected for herself — if the Ryan Murphy-created "American Horror Story" serves as a litmus. "My favorite parts have been ones that people don't expect — when Ryan Murphy cast me in ‘American Horror Story,’ for example," the former Nickelodeon star began. "People saw me as this nice, teen girl and I couldn't get older, edgier roles at the time."  EMMA ROBERTS, GARRETT HEDLUND WELCOME FIRST CHILD TOGETHER Video"He gave me that opportunity, and I'd love to do that for others," the "Nancy Drew" actress added.

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Connor Dewar got his first career goal and added an assist when Nico Sturm scored 22 seconds later, helping the Minnesota Wild match their franchise record for goals in an 8-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night. Jared Spurgeon, Marcus Foligno, Mats Zuccarello, Matt Boldy, Jordie Benn and Kevin Fiala also scored as Minnesota dominated NHL-worst Montreal to ease Cam Talbot’s return to the net. Zuccarello squeezed a bad-angle shot past goalie Cayden Primeau with 31 seconds left in the second period for a 5-1 lead for the Wild, who are 10-0-1 with a 56-25 scoring margin in their last 11 games at Xcel Energy Center. Their only home regulation loss since Nov. 16 was to St. Louis in the Winter Classic at Target Field on Jan. 1. Mike Hoffman gave the Canadiens the lead by slamming a pass to the slot past Talbot’s glove just 1:23 into the game, but Spurgeon tied it less than two minutes later with an uncontested slap shot for the captain’s first goal since Nov. 11. He...
    AMIR KHAN has hinted at sensationally making a U-turn on his retirement plans after finally fighting Kell Brook. Khan revealed he is in the middle of the most gruelling training camp of his life as he prepares for his long-awaited grudge match with Brook. 2Amir Khan training to fight Kell BrookCredit: @amirkingkhan He had admitted it would be the finale fight in his illustrious career and said he would be 'done' with the sport afterwards. But now, having pushed himself to the limits in camp with new coach Brian McIntyre, Khan claimed there could still be more to come. He told SecondsOut: "Let's see where it goes. Because look, I'm going to see how this training camp makes me as a fighter. "I mean, I might feel so good that I might want to do another one. I've never been pushed this hard in my career in any training camp. "Training this hard, I know I can do it. And if I felt a little bit old that I had to retire, or felt beaten up,...
    AMIR KHAN has revealed he will RETIRE after his grudge match with Kell Brook - but vowed to go out on a high. The long-time welterweight rivals will at last settle their score in the ring with a sell-out in Manchester on February 19. 3Kell Brook and Amir Khan ahead of their fightCredit: PA But for Khan, he admitted the finale fight will be the end of the road for him and his illustrious career, but promised to go out on a knockout. He said on Instagram: "I leave it to God to decide which round I knock Kell Brook out. I am going to win the fight 100 per cent.  "People ask me what I'm doing after this fight. I'm done, man." Khan, 35, will go down as one of Britain's most celebrated fighters - a silver medalist at just 17-years-old and former unified world champion. For Brook, also 35, he never got the same recognition but was a long-reigning IBF welterweight title holder with supreme skills. And while he may have been in...

    UFC Match Maker: Donald Cerrone – Jim Miller 2 Daniel Cunningham October 19, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit This past Saturday at UFC Vegas 40, Jim Miller (33-16, 1 NC) made the walk that he’s made many times before.

(AP) — Cameron Norrie routed 11th-seeded Diego Schwartzman 6-0, 6-2 on Thursday to reach the semifinals of the BNP Paribas Open and extend the best season of his young career. Norrie needed just 73 minutes to dismantle Schwartzman, who finally held serve to open the second set, drawing cheers from the small crowd at Indian Wells Tennis Garden, where attendance has been capped at well below capacity because of the coronavirus pandemic. “For my biggest match of my career to play like I did and execute like I did was the biggest thing that I’m most happy with,” Norrie said. Schwartzman earned his only break of the match to tie it 2-all in the second.
