    Tennis legend Roger Federer has announced he will retire from the sport at the age of 41. Federer has confirmed the last tournament of his illustrious career will be the Laver Cup in London, scheduled to be held next weekend. The Swiss maestro, who won a total of 20 Grand Slams, retires as one of the greatest to ever play the game.  His decision follows a turbulent period for Federer, who has undergone three knee surgeries in a desperate attempt to return to his former glory. 'To my tennis family and beyond, of all the gifts that tennis has given me over the years, the greatest, without a doubt, has been the people I've met along the way: my friends, my competitors, and most of all the fans who give the sport its life,' Federer said. 'Today, I want to share some news with all of you. As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries. 'I've worked hard to return to full competitive form. But I also know my...

You can’t compare my fight with Fury with Chisora's two fights." Wallin, 31, gave Fury a real run for his money in their Las Vegas showdown in 2019 and left the Brit with a horrific...
    LEGENDARY Team GB Olympian Sir Mo Farah might have called it quits on his athletics track career - but will he be at the 2022 London Marathon?

    Now that he’s seen the way it has worked out, at least for half a season, manager Brandon Hyde isn’t afraid to admit how he felt several months ago on the doorstep of the campaign, when he had no idea how his Orioles pitching staff would operate. He was at a loss about his starting rotation, let alone his bullpen. That’s a scary place for a major league manager to find himself, unsure of whether the arms at his disposal will give his bats a fighting chance. “I was really nervous,” Hyde said, before amending his statement slightly. “Extremely nervous.” Fast forward to July, where the Orioles stand on steadier footing and all that uncertainty has faded away behind a string of strong starts and solid bullpen outings. Including the display from right-hander Jordan Lyles during Thursday night’s 4-1 win against the Los Angeles Angels, Baltimore starters have allowed one run or fewer in 15 of the last 20 games. And as the bats continue to crop up in timely places, Baltimore has put together its first five-game winning streak...
    WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Rick Bowness doesn’t mind being the second choice. The Winnipeg Jets’ new head coach was introduced Monday, a little more than a week after the team’s first choice, Barry Trotz, declined an offer because he wanted to spend more time with his family. “If I’m in his chair, I’m going after Trotzy, too. I am. It’s that simple,” Bowness said with a laugh, referring to Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff. “Trotzy is the perfect guy for this, I get that. With his resume, I would have done the same thing Chevy did. I got a nice text from Trotzy a couple days ago, but it didn’t work out and that’s fine. So do I feel bad about second choice? Absolutely not. I would have done the same thing. He would have been my first choice” Cheveldayoff said he quickly pivoted to Bowness. “If you ever get a chance to sit one on one, (Bowness is) easy to talk to, very engaging and that’s what players are looking for,” Cheveldayoff said. “They’re looking to be heard, but...
    Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is announcing details of a framework to transform the food system to benefit consumers, producers and rural communities by providing more options, increasing access, and creating new, more, and better markets for small and mid-size producers. Today’s announcement builds on lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain disruptions caused by Russia’s war in Ukraine. This announcement also provides additional details on the June 2021 announcement to strengthen critical supply chains and address longstanding structural challenges that were revealed and intensified by the pandemic. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, USDA made significant investments through its Pandemic Assistance Program, providing immediate relief to producers, businesses, food workers and others. As the pandemic has evolved and Russia’s war in Ukraine has caused supply chain disruptions, it has become clear we cannot go back to the food system we had before: the Biden-Harris Administration and USDA recognize we must build back better and strengthen the food system across the supply chain, from how our...
    Getty Andrew Wiggins brings up the ball in a game against the Phoenix Suns. After nine seasons spent trying to reach the potential of his first overall pick, Golden State Warriors wing Andrew Wiggins put together the most complete season of his career in 2021-22. Unfortunately, due to the team’s pending cap mess, it could also be his final act with the team. A Warriors insider predicted that the team may be forced to part ways with Wiggins in the coming offseason in order to keep the rest of the team’s core intact — or as much of it as possible.

    Discovering your child has been bullied is like a stab to the heart. But finding out your child is the bully responsible can be even more distressing. The knee-jerk reaction is often to jump to your child's defence and insist there must have been a misunderstanding; your little one couldn't possibly be the problem.  But the reality is that this mentality is not helpful for you, your child or, crucially, the other children who might be suffering as a result of their behaviour, Irish psychotherapist Stella O'Malley explains.  In her new book Bully-Proof Kids, O'Malley offers advice to children and families on how to deal confidently with bullying, both in school and online, including how to deal with 'mob mentality' and how to teach empathy.  Speaking exclusively to FEMAIL, O'Malley has shared the early warning signs every parent can look out for if they fear their child might be a bully, from a strong 'leadership' streak to other children going out of their way to please him or her.  She also shared an eight-step plan to tackling the issue, starting...
    What could have been a tumultuous spring for Pac-12 basketball coaches instead is expected to unfold in quietly. Stanford announced last week that Jerod Haase will return. USC agreed to a contract extension with Andy Enfield to prevent a wandering eye. Cal has given no indication it plans to move on from Mark Fox. Same with Washington and Mike Hopkins. Ditto for Arizona State with Bobby Hurley. Oregon State isn’t budging from its commitment to Wayne Tinkle. And UCLA just locked down Mick Cronin for years to come. We probably will witness turnover across the conference at a lower level, with assistants coming and going. But the 12 head coaches in place at the beginning of this season seemingly will be in charge at the start of next season. Even though the Pac-12 won just 66.7 percent of its non-conference games. And went 7-15 against Power Six opponents. And sent just three teams to the NCAA Tournament. Sure, there’s a lot to be said for stability — a lot, but not everything. We’re struck that the Pac-12, which collectively performed...
    THEY may be part of the world's most famous families - but that doesn't stop the Royals from poking fun at each other on WhatsApp just like the rest of us do with our loved ones. So when Kate Middleton was put through her paces by England rugby players last week to mark her new role as patron, Mike Tindall was prepped and ready to cheekily criticise her technique. 3Mike Tindall wanted to tease Kate over her rugby skillsCredit: Getty 3However, other plays reported back to Mike that she was a 'really good at kicking'Credit: Getty But annoyingly for the professional player - who is married to The Queen's granddaughter Zara - the Duchess of Cambridge was really rather good. In the latest episode of his podcast The Good, the Bad, and the Rugby, the dad-of-three said Kate's performance seemed "effortless". During the session, the Duchess - who was a keen rower and hockey player at university - was hoisted into the air by the team at Twickenham and completed drills. After the practice had finished, Mike messaged his mate...
    (CNN)Mama Diakité is 23, and has been playing club football for the past 10 years. But all of that could change, she says, if a ban on wearing the hijab while playing sports proposed by the French senate becomes law. "It almost means the end of soccer for me," Diakité, a member of Paris based Les Hijabeuses, a collective of young hijab-wearing female footballers campaigning against the ban, and fighting what they describe as the exclusion of Muslim women from sports. Paris based Les Hijabeuses are a collective of young hijab-wearing female footballers tackling what they say is exclusion of Muslim women from sports.The French senate in January voted 160 to 143 to ban the wearing of the hijab and other "ostensible religious symbols" in sports competitions following a proposed amendment from Les Republicains, a right wing party, who argued that headscarves can risk the safety of athletes wearing them.

    EDINSON CAVANI says he is committed to the Manchester United cause despite seeing game-time limited after the return of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Uruguay striker has only made four appearances for United this season, with his one start coming in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Everton. 1Ronaldo came on as a second-half substitute to replace Cavani against EvertonCredit: Alamy And the start against the Toffees ended after 57 minutes when United's main man Ronaldo came on to replace him at Old Trafford. Cavani, 34, arrived at Old Trafford 12 months ago and made an immediate impact with ten goals in 26 Prem games for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side. But the former Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain star was fine with allowing United legend Ronaldo, 36, to reclaim the club's iconic No 7 shirt following his summer return from Juventus. And despite being linked with a loan move to Barcelona last month, Cavani says he is happy to stay and fight for his place at the Red Devils. While on international duty this week, Cavani told El Observador: “In football, you have...
    GARETH SOUTHGATE has told Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi he needs to earn his next England call-up, according to reports. The winger, 20, will be eligible to play for Ghana when he turns 21 in November 2022 and there are rumours of a change of allegiance. 1Callum Hudson-Odoi's international future is yet to be decidedCredit: Getty According to The Daily Mail, England boss Southgate will not be forced into adding Hudson-Odoi to his squad in the coming months. The youngster has already won three senior caps for England, making his debut in a competitive match against the Czech Republic in March 2019. Under Fifa rules, footballers are allowed to change their international allegiance if they have not played a competitive match. They can also switch nations if they have played no more than three competitive matches at senior level prior to turning 21. All three of Hudson-Odoi's caps came in 2019, meaning he is just 13 months from potentially playing for his father's native country. But if he was to play one more senior game for the Three Lions, he would...
    John Mulaney and Olivia Munn Spotted Together in NYC After Pregnancy News From rags to riches, then he gave it all away Bills G.M. Brandon Beane found himself in hot water for stating the obvious during the offseason. He’s stating the obvious again, albeit a bit more discreetly. © Provided by NBC Sports Asked by John Kryk of PostMedia.com whether it’s a competitive disadvantage to not have a fully-vaccinated roster, Beane was candid and accurate. “If you’re facing a team that has 100 percent vaccination and you don’t, that is a competitive disadvantage, you’re right,” Beane said. “But this is a unique circumstance. [COVID-19 is] what everyone is dealing with. And you control what you can control. You educate your staff, your players — whether it’s doctors talking to them, or other people. And you try to just give them the facts. We have to also understand that this is not a thing that’s mandatory, and people have their rights.” So what can a team do about it, given that (technically) it can’t cut unvaccinated players. (Also, some unvaccinated...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Labor Day is traditionally the start of the campaign season, with just eight weeks before the Nov. 2 general election.

    JAKE PAUL fighting Conor McGregor 'would be competitive' as the YouTuber has a near THREE STONE advantage, his sparring partner said. Paul has continued to target a boxing match with McGregor, who was beaten on his ring debut against Floyd Mayweather in 2017. 3Jake Paul fighting Conor McGregor 'would be competitive', his sparring partner saidCredit: Instagram @jakepaul 3Ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor campaigns at lightweight The social media sensation is currently 3-0, all by knockout, and faces his biggest challenge to date in ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, next.

    (CBS4) – A preliminary map of Colorado’s new eight congressional districts is now out. The state’s population jumped nearly 15% since the last census, giving us an additional seat in Congress. The map released Wednesday is a starting point for where the lines will fall.

They deserve their success. But some will say the system wasn’t meant for keep-it-in-the-family, it was for blowing fresh air through the leagues. Many of those who did not make it will blame “evil” parachute payments, a sum of about £40million handed over to each club in the first year of relegation, falling to £35m in the second and £15m in the third and last.

IE’s raters find eight seats that they expect to be competitive or, at least, that are occurring in states that they consider to be battlegrounds in which Senate seats will be on the ballot. They break down perfectly, with four currently Republican-held Senate seats and four Democrat-held seats on the ballot. Note that, because he was running for the unexpired portion of the seat formerly held by the appointed Republican Kelly Loeffler, the seat of newly elected Democrat Raphael Warnock, D-Georgia, will be on the ballot, and he won that...

    This week, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene took a stand for women and girls in America by originally cosponsoring Rep. Greg Steube’s Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act  to prohibit men from unfairly competing against women in sports. This legislation would enact Title IX protection to recognize the sex of athletes at birth and stop the dangerous trend of biological males infiltrating women’s sports to achieve a competitive advantage. Congresswoman Greene issued the following statement: “As a former competitive athlete and a mother to a daughter who is a D1 collegiate athlete, I staunchly oppose biological males in girls/women’s sports, locker rooms, and bathrooms. This completely violates women’s rights in every way. Women’s sports should be women’s sports.” The full text of the legislation can be read here.  
    A pair of homeless people on Skid Row, about a mile from the Vignes Street project.Kevin Drum Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.As you probably know, Los Angeles has an enormous homelessness problem. Today, however, the LA Times reported some good news about a new homeless shelter being built downtown on Vignes Street: When the last touches of landscaping are done next month, the 232-bed Vignes Street development will have shattered the axiom that homeless housing takes years to build and is exorbitantly expensive. From start to finish in under five months and at a cost of about $200,000 per bed, it has shaved years and hundreds of thousands of dollars off a traditional homeless housing project. ….Unlike traditional homeless housing projects that are either designed for permanent residency with services or for short-term shelter, the Vignes complex will have both. The two main buildings, constructed of once-used shipping containers, will have 132 units of permanent housing. The trailers, each divided...
    Republican Sen. Richard Burr said he would not seek a fourth term all the way back in 2016, and it’s very unlikely he’d be able to change his mind now that he’s under investigation for the large stock transactions he made just before the markets tanked in mid-March as the coronavirus pandemic worsened. There are a number of North Carolina Republicans who could run to succeed Burr in this light red state, and multiple media organizations reported Thursday that Lara Trump, who is the wife of Eric Trump, is considering. Trump, a Tar Heel State native who worked as an adviser for her father-in-law’s failed reelection campaign, was mentioned last year as a possible contender for New York’s 2nd Congressional District on Long Island, and she initially didn’t rule the idea out. Trump, who didn’t end up making the race, currently lives in Westchester County, New York, which is quite far from both the Long Island-based 2nd District and especially North Carolina. Several other Republicans could also compete here. Outgoing Rep. Mark Walker decided not to run for anything this year after court-supervised...
    Loading the player... Stacey Abrams has been celebrated as a hero of the 2020 presidential election. The former Democratic gubernatorial candidate registered over 800,000 Georgians to vote, people whose cast ballots were instrumental in flipping the state of Georgia to blue for the first time in 30 years.  The eyes of the nation remain on the Peach State as two Senate seats go up for grabs after an election that resulted in a pair of runoffs.  Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams campaigns in October for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris at a Democratic canvass kickoff at Las Vegas’ Bruce Trent Park. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images) Republican senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue face serious challenges by Democratic contenders Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff because of Georgia’s requirements for run-off elections when one candidate doesn’t garner the required 50-percent and one vote.  Warnock received 32.9 percent of the vote against Republican incumbent Loeffler, who got 26 percent. Opponents Ossoff and incumbent Perdue garnered 47.8 percent and 49.8 percent respectively Stacey Abrams on Georgia Senate runoffs: “We will have...
    For 2021, Nissan has fully revamped its Rogue SUV. It's a wise move, as the compact crossover segment is red hot right now."Aside from full-size trucks, the C-SUV segment is the largest. Over 3.3 million units are sold annually," said Robin Moreo, a Nissan USA product planner who works extensively on the Rogue.Nissan gave it some more style, lots of safety features and a new interior it labels "family friendly" - these are attributes shoppers in this segment seek out. And beyond the utility, it's actually rather engaging to drive."It's that intuitive usability. And also it has the confidence-inspiring driving dynamics that really allow a person to feel confident when they're driving. Really grips the road," Moreo added.One noteworthy feature you don't necessarily think about: the rear doors open nearly 90 degrees for easier access. There's smooth power from the four-cylinder engine and a very quiet ride. The seats are especially comfortable for longer trips, with a design called "zero gravity."Nissan is probably smart to make sure that its Rogue stays competitive in the very hot small SUV segment. And...

The Red Sox are 19-33, a record that puts them in last place in the AL East and 28th of 30 teams (ahead of only the Pirates and Rangers) in winning percentage.  Injuries were indeed a factor as Werner...
    (CBSNewYork) — The New York Jets will try to avoid an 0-2 start at home this Sunday after an ugly loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. The Jets punted after three plays on their first three possessions and managed just one first down and 23 yards the first five times they had the ball. The score was already 21-0 midway through the second quarter, as Josh Allen had his way with the Jets secondary. They host the San Francisco 49ers, who, fresh off their Super Bowl appearance, are also trying to avoid an 0-2 start. The 49ers let a fourth-quarter lead slip away to the Cardinals at home in Week 1. Cardinals second-year quarterback Kyler Murray passed for 230 yards, ran for another 91 yards and orchestrated two second-half scoring drives for the win. DeAndre Hopkins carved up the 49ers secondary, pulling 14 of his 16 targets for 151 yards. Stream your local NFL on CBS game live with CBS All Access. As if those Week 1 results weren’t bad enough, both teams face a mounting injury count....

    (CNN)Green Party candidates for key congressional races will likely not appear on Montana ballots this fall after the US Supreme Court declined Tuesday to take up an emergency petition from the state's Republican secretary of state.The decision could have a major impact on a competitive US Senate race between Republican incumbent Sen. Steve Daines and Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock.Justice Elena Kagan issued the order on Tuesday without comment or recorded dissent. CNN has reached out to Montana Secretary of State Cory Stapleton's office for comment.Stapleton filed an emergency request Monday urging the high court to place a hold on proceedings pending further legal action after lower courts had approved the Green Party's absence from the ballot. Montana Republicans earlier this year backed an effort to qualify the Green Party, which has traditionally drawn some liberal voters from the Democrats, for the ballot. But after that was revealed, state Democrats urged enough people who signed petitions to disavow their support.Read MoreThe secretary of state's office, however, did not accept requests to remove their support, so the state Democrats and several people...
    Blake Griffin’s first two years with the Detroit Pistons has been a major disaster. After being hit by numerous injuries, Griffin failed to live up to expectations from the player that was expected to help the Pistons fully dominate the Eastern Conference and contend for the NBA championship title. After they suffered another huge disappointment in the 2019-20 NBA season, multiple signs are pointing out that the Pistons will be undergoing a rebuilding process this fall. Despite being aware that they might consider taking a different route in the 2020 offseason, the All-Star power forward doesn’t seem to see himself playing anywhere else next year. In a recent Zoom interview with reporters, Griffin reiterated his commitment to the Pistons. However, though he expressed his willingness to take a “different role,” he said that he is still expecting Detroit “to be competitive.” “I look for our team to be competitive. I know from my conversations with Coach [Dwane Casey] and Troy and the front office, they want to put a competitive team on the floor,” Griffin said, as transcribed by Eric...
    Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar won her primary in the state’s 5th Congressional District Tuesday, defeating mediation lawyer Antone Melton-Meaux. Omar won with 57.1% of the vote, according to The New York Times, ensuring that she will be reelected to Congress in November in the safe Democratic district. Omar, who represents Minneapolis and a few surrounding suburbs west of the city, emerged onto the political scene in 2018 when she, along with Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, became the first two Muslim women elected to Congress. I’ve seen enough: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) wins renomination in #MN05, defeating Antone Melton-Meaux (D). — Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) August 12, 2020 She succeeded Rep. Keith Ellison, who had retired to run for Minnesota’s Attorney General, becoming the first woman to represent the district since it was created. Along with New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Omar and Tlaib formed the “squad,” a group of progressive women of color who have clashed with President Donald Trump and, at times, with members of their own party.

    THE amateur game in England will learn the all-clear has been given to return to competitive football again on Wednesday. Grassroots leagues across the country have been forced to wait until the government cleared the FA’s return to play planning having eased Covid-19 restrictions last week. 1Amateur football is set to be allowed to return, with an announcement on WednesdayCredit: Getty Images - Getty That proposal has now been submitted. SunSport understands the FA is working towards announcing when and how leagues in England, including children, will be able to resume on Wednesday. There is a belief the FA are working towards clearing competitive leagues to resume at the start of September. Clubs of all levels will be able to begin training and friendly match action before then. But there will still be strict guidelines in place to account for the threat of coronavirus transmission, which could see mass use of changing rooms barred. Social distancing measures will have to be in place, as they still are in the professional game. It is therefore likely players will have to shower...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — The White Sox will be back on the field at Guaranteed Rate Field next Friday for their first workout. The Cubs are expected to start the same day at Wrigley Field. Then, in less three weeks, the strange 60-game season begins. But if you’re the last team standing, you still get that World Series trophy. Whatever happens, White Sox officials say the shortened season will be critical for the team going forward in the long term. “I’ll let history decide what it means, what it doesn’t mean. All I’ll know is that if we’re able to accomplish that – and from your mouth to God’s ears to our club – if we’re able to accomplish that, that would be great,” said White Sox Manager Rick Renteria. “The short answer to your question – is it a legitimate season? Absolutely,” said White Sox General Manager Rick Hahn. “But I’m of the mindset – have been the mindset – that what we’re building here is a multi-year project. It’s a multi-year endeavor. This was going to be sort of...
