Wozniacki's best previous result in Miami was a semifinal in 2012, and saw Pliskova strike 24 winners to pocket the 62-minute opening set. The decider began in similar fashion, as Wozniacki toughed out the first break of serve on her first chance in the opener game, and never allowed Pliskova to get to deuce on return the rest of the way.
But which players impressed on another busy Premier League weekend? Collymore says United's ability to keep clean sheets is something they have over their rivals. Manchester United remain in the hunt for a top four place in the Premier League after beating Middlesbrough 3-1 at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday.
The victory means the Ducks will face the North Carolina Tar Heels in a Final Four face-off scheduled for Saturday in Glendale, Arizona. His 3-pointer sent the Kentucky fans here into a state of delirium, and the shot tied the score at 73 with nine seconds left.
He throws his fastball, curveball, and changeup for strikes, keeps the ball down, and is quite durable, between all of which he ranked seventh among major-league pitchers over the last four years in wins above replacement. Alex Reyes figured to be in the rotation, but he's sidelined with an elbow injury that resulted in Tommy John Surgery. The Cardinals would have a rotation that could give the Chicago Cubs a hard time.
The 6 feet 4 inches tall Australian struck 16 aces and did not face a single break point during the two-hour, 33-minute match , while the 19-year-old Zverev, who is even taller at 6 feet 6 inches managed just three aces and had his serve broken twice.

North Carolina point guard Joel Berry II sounds like he plans to play in Saturday's national semifinals against OR despite battling injuries to each ankle. SI: Is this year's group the best Zags team of all-time? "He's going to take a big jump". On the other side, the Gonzaga Bulldogs have been steamrolling the competition.

De'Aaron Fox and Kentucky are headed to the Elite Eight after topping UCLA 86-75 in the Sweet 16 Friday night. Still, Adebayo had four rebounds and five assists (which I couldn't believe was a real stat), but where his impact was seen was as Fox's primary screener in the pick-and-roll.
The first thing I want them all to know is that just remember, the 30 percent rule; 30 percent of the team changes so don't worry about what we're going to be doing two or three years from now. We shall see. What would even be sweeter obviously is if the Raiders actually played in a Super Bowl in Las Vegas , whenever it happens. It was Jones who brought in Bank of America to help finance the deal when other banks and investors bailed on Davis.
The match will be played on March 25 to March 29, 2017. Virat Kohli did bat in the nets on Friday but looked downcast as he dwelled on the possibility of featuring in the winner-take-all match of the series which is all square at 1-1.

And others still, like Summerlin resident Dominick Webb, is just happy to see another professional sports team in Las Vegas for more selfish reasons. Davis also said he'd refund money spent on season tickets, per Rapoport , which could put a further dent in the team's attendance. Invoking his father Al's name, and copying what the Hall of Fame owner did with the Raiders, Mark Davis is moving the franchise out of Oakland.
After Duke took a 30-23 lead at the half on the strength of a defensive effort that forced SC to shoot 20 percent from the field, the Blue Devils never found their footing in the second half. SC wins with suffocating defense eventually fueling its offense, and with a tightly called game the 'Cocks could not be so physical. Look at the teams left in the East bracket (Florida, Wisconsin, Baylor, and South Carolina ) and they all are pretty even.
Wenger said on Thursday he was "clear in my mind" about what he wants to do when his current contract expires in the summer, but has repeatedly refused to announce his plans. Asked if Wenger was still the right man for the job, he replied: "I'm not answering that". With Arsene Wenger's insistence to dominate possession, keeping the ball on the carpet and undertaking relentless waves of attacks to break down what can be stubborn and well-organised opposing defences.

Linares (42-3, 27 KO's) cruised through much of the fight with an impressive display of boxing skill and power. Linares appears to have welcomed a future fight with Garcia after admitting he wants to fight the "best opponents" in his division.
Linares was awarded the decision 118-109 on all three of the judges' scorecards to retain his world crown, as well as the prestigious Ring Magazine belt. From here, both fighters are headed in different yet not polar opposite directions. But what awaits him on his return? IBTimes UK considers the options.

Kuldeep Yadav earned his first Test call and the Chinaman spinner showed that he is ready for worldwide level as he took four wickets in his Test debut.
India defeated Australia by 8 wickets in the fourth and final Test in Dharamsala on Tuesday to win the series 2-1. On day four, India lost Vijay to fast bowler Cummins and Cheteshwar Pujara to a run out, but they were the only scares for the hosts who reached their target in less than 24 overs.
He's in much better spirits. Coleman's global team-mate and former Baggies striker Shane Long spoke regarding Taylor after the game, stating: "I think he has got it done to him before, so I suppose he went in anxious about the challenge".
Cristiano Ronaldo may have the medals, money and looks, even an airport - but it's his bronze likeness that's stealing the show. The airport's name change was decided by the Madeira regional government after Portugal won the 2016 European Championship.
But Blind said injuries to other center backs forced him to select a player with only a handful of appearances for Ajax. However, Blind took over as coach when the team lost all chances to go to France. However Robben refused to lumber the inexperienced De Light with the underlying responsibility for Netherlands' defeat, suggesting that the performance was lacklustre in all departments of the field.
Marcus Paige did it past year for North Carolina with a clutch basket late in the national title game before Villanova's Kris Jenkins knocked down a game-winner. While many wrote off OR after the Boucher injury, the Ducks got hot behind a tight rotation that is not going much past six players. When he's putting up 24 points a night, OR is a different - a better - team.
Blind's assistant, Fred Grim, will temporarily replace him when the Netherlands plays Italy in a friendly on Tuesday in Amsterdam . To understand why Danny Blind got fired as Dutch national team coach, we'll put in perspective the selection decision he made for the World Cup 2018 qualifier against Bulgaria that cost him his job.

Argentina lost 2-0 to Bolivia, without Messi, on Tuesday night. Arguably the world's best player, Messi is a five-time victor of the Ballon d'Or and has won eight LaLiga crowns and four Champions League titles among other trophies. Messi has been defended since receiving the punishment, Barcelona calling the ban "unfair and disproportionate", with Gerard Pique branding it an "outrage".

The Ducks were picked to finish eighth in the conference after graduating some, losing others and returning just three players on scholarship.
And just like 2017's first Grand Slam in Melbourne, it was Federer who came away the victor with a brilliant 6-2 6-3 win. However, their last-16 clash at the ATP 1000 event was far different. Djokovic had been riding a four-year, 20-match winning streak in the Californian desert and hailed his third-set display against Juan Martin del Potro in the previous round as his best tennis of the year.
Tillerson also said Trump is "anticipating the two will soon be able to meet face to face for discussions that will chart the course for future US-China relations", the statement said.

Mack called it "heartbreaking" for Miller's team to lose this game "because they had a special year". That brings us back to present day as Xavier's in a major basketball conference. Arizona led 10-2 out of the gate, but struggled to shoot against Xavier's zone defense most of the rest of the half. "We wanted our players to understand that February was over".
But the torrid shooting of Brooks, Ennis, and Dorsey quickly deflated the sold-out Sprint Center, and sent a warning shot to the Jayhawks that they were in for a fight. "We been the underdogs all three games, and that's the mentality we take ..."

Denouncing Virat Kohli's comments that the spiteful Test series has ended his friendship with the Australians, legendary batsman Mark Taylor says the India captain should not hold any grudges since it's just a game in the end. For Australians, coming to India is one of the toughest places to tour and I think the way the guys were able to adapt and challenged India in these conditions was fantastic.
