Wimbledon 2016 Day 8

Wimbledon 2016 Day 8

Manic Monday, Magic Monday or even the 10th Murray Monday, depending on your preference, this is the day when all 16 fourth round singles matches are played and, wherever you turn, there are matches to luxuriate in.

Tradition is out the window thanks to the weather this year, with the Wimbledon organisers forced to put on a day’s play on Sunday due to the rain over the past week.

Middle Sunday saw the third round finally conclude, and as we enter the second week of the tournament, we’ve got some intriguing clashes to look forward to.

World number one and tournament favourite Serena Williams looked impressive as she dispatched of Annika Beck, and although she faces a tough test against Svetlana Kuznetsova next up, she has enough quality and form on her side to prevail.

This should be a fascinating encounter, as it not only pits two top players against each other, but also a real difference in styles.

Serena Williams against Victoria Azarenka, two feisty old foes scrapping it out with no great love lost on Centre Court, may be the stand-out encounter, while Gentlemen’s Champion Novak Djokovic, resuming at two sets all in his fourth round encounter on No.1 Court, must keep his nerve in a perilous final set shoot-out with the huge-serving Kevin Anderson.
Yet opportunity knocks loudest for Americans CoCo Vandeweghe and Madison Keys, Switzerland’s Timea Bacsinszky and Spain’s Garbine Muguruza, none of whom have made the last eight here before.

Baltimore Orioles vs Los Angeles Dodgers

Baltimore Orioles vs Los Angeles Dodgers

One of the American League’s best teams will face one of the National League’s most intriguing rookie pitchers when the Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Dodgers begin a three-game series on Monday night at Dodger Stadium.

The Orioles arrive in California leading the Boston Red Sox by three games in the American League East, despite having the league’s third-best record. The Seattle Mariners narrowed Baltimore’s divisional advantage with a four-game sweep that gave the Mariners a 6-1 record against the Orioles this year.

The Baltimore Orioles sit atop the American League East but they are just a bad week away from falling off their perch. The Orioles have been in a bit of a funk and that continued Sunday with a 9-4 defeat at Seattle for loss number four in a row. O’s starter Ubaldo Jimenez was charged with six runs on six hits and a trio of free passes over 4.1 frames to fall to 5-8. The Birds pounded out 12 hits with Mark Trumbo going 2-4 with a homer and two RBI’s while JJ Hardy had two hits and drove in two.Veteran Yovani Gallardo draws Monday’s start at the Dodgers for his 4th outing since coming off the DL. Gallardo comes off a 12-6 victory at San Diego with three runs plated on three hits and three BB over six innings.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been playing well and need to continue along that path if they expect to catch San Francisco in the NL West. The Dodgers stayed hot for yet another day and have won five of six after downing the visiting Rockies 4-1. LAD starter Brandon McCarthy improved to 1-0 with five scoreless innings  before four relievers closed the deal. Los Angeles mustered six hits and four walks with Trayce Thompson and Yasmani Grandal slamming solo homers. Rookie Julio Urias toes the rubber for the first time versus the dangerous Orioles Monday. Urias has been solid over his last three outings where he has gone 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA.
PITCHING MATCHUP:

Orioles RH Yovani Gallardo (3-1, 5.77 ERA) vs. Dodgers LH Julio Urias (1-2, 4.09)

Gallardo is 2-0 with a 4.41 ERA in three outings since returning from the disabled list after posting his first quality start of the season at San Diego on Wednesday. The veteran has surrendered 16 runs in 19 innings on the road in 2016. He owns a 6.05 ERA in three career turns at Dodger Stadium and will be wary of A.J. Ellis (5-for-10 against Gallardo) and Justin Turner (6-for-15).Urias originally was scheduled to start Sunday but had the outing pushed back to make room for the return of Brandon McCarthy, who was solid in defeating the Rockies. The 19-year-old Urias picked up his first major-league win and completed six innings his last time out at Milwaukee, allowing two runs while working around six walks. He has struck out 34 batters in 25 1/3 frames over his last five outings while posting an ERA of 2.49.

Novak Djokovic Vs Sam Querrey

Novak Djokovic Vs Sam Querrey

The gentlemen’s defending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic takes on big-serving American Sam Querrey, seeded 28th in the third round with a spot in the fourth round on Manic Monday at stake.

Novak Djokovic‘s quest for a third consecutive title at Wimbledon and Calendar Year Grand Slam continues on Friday on No.1 Court, a court where he’s had a couple of dramatic matches over the past two years.

The world number one will be pleased with his passage through to the third round of Wimbledon without a dropping set as conserving energy will be important going forward into the later rounds of the tournament.

Novak Djokovic is coming off a straight sets win over Adrian Mannarino that took two hours to finish. In the victory, Djokovic won 56 of 67 first serve points and racked up 23 winners and 21 unforced errors. Djokovic continues to win a high percentage of his service points, limit his errors and finish his matches quickly. As long as Djokovic continues to play at this level and make all of his shots, it’s going to be very tough for anybody to beat him. Djokovic has played just four hours of tennis in two matches. Djokovic hasn’t been bounced in the third round of a grand slam since the 2009 French Open. Djokovic has won 16 straight matches on grass.

Sam Querrey is coming off a straight sets win over Thomaz Bellucci that took an hour and a half to finish. In the victory, Querrey won 39 of 47 first serve points and racked up 25 winners to 16 unforced errors. Querrey had a much easier time in the second round than he did the first, and he’ll always have a shot to win if his service game is strong. Querrey has produced 43 aces and 107 winners in two matches, something that gives him hope in this match. Querrey hopes to make it to the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time since the 2010 US Open. Querrey has won six of his last nine matches on grass.

These two have played nine times in the past and Djokovic has won eight of those meetings. The most recent match was in the 2014 US Open, a match Djokovic won in straight sets. Querrey’s only win over Djokovic came in the 2012 Paris Masters.

While the Orioles were solid in June the same cannot be said for the Mariners. They began the month battling with the Texas Rangers for the top spot in the AL West, but now they are in 3rd place in the division 10.5 games back of the Rangers.

RHP Mike Foltynewicz will be getting the start for the Braves on Thursday. It’s been one month exactly since we’ve seen Foltynewicz on the mound, as he’s coming off the disabled list due to an elbow injury. Over six starts and a 2-2 record this year, Foltynewicz holds a 3.51 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP over 33.1 innings total.

It’s not hard to find the big swingers on the Braves’ batting order. Freddie Freeman has been the star this year with 82 hits, 36 runs, 13 homers and 28 RBI. Nick Markakis has 74 hits with 29 runs and 41 RBI. Adonis Garcia is playing fairly well with his 50 hits, 19 runs and 21 RBI this year. Garcia and Freeman combined to go 0-for-8 on Wednesday.

Serena Williams vs Christina McHale

Serena Williams is coming off a straight sets win over Amra Sadikovic that took about an hour and 15 minutes. In the victory, Serena won 33 of her 55 first serve points and racked up 19 winners and 18 unforced errors.

Serena continues her dominance, as she’s now won 24 of her last 27 sets and is still hungry for her 22nd career grand slam title. Serena still isn’t hitting the ball with her usual power, but she’s playing clean tennis for the most part and finishing her points quickly despite the lack of consistent power shots. Serena has been eliminated before the third round of a grand slam just once since 2013. Serena has won eight straight matches on grass.

Christina McHale is coming off a straight sets win over Daniela Hantuchova that took an hour and a half. In the victory, McHale won 33 of her 57 first serve points and racked up 16 winners and 11 unforced errors. McHale looked sharp in her opening match and was able to take advantage of her opponents 37 unforced errors. McHale has shown flashes of being a rising American tennis player but hasn’t quite been able to get over the hump, especially in gardens alm play. A victory here would certainly put more attention on the 24-year-old who is currently a top-70 player in the world. McHale looks to make the third round of a grand slam for the first time since the 2013 US Open. McHale has won six of her last eight matches on grass.

These two have played twice in the past and Serena won both meetings. The two matches took place in this year’s Miami and Rome Masters. McHale has won one set against Serena in two matches.

Kansas City Royals vs St. Louis Cardinals

Kansas City Royals vs St. Louis Cardinals

 

While the Kansas City Royals headed for St. Louis after an 8-4 loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday night, center fielder Lorenzo Cain was going for an MRI.

These two teams split the two games facing each other in Kansas City and as the interleague series shifts to St. Louis the Cardinals are the big betting favorites tonight. While these teams have the same record and both are in 2nd place in their divisions the Royals are six games back of the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central and the Cardinals are 10 games back of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.

Get in the action, anywhere, anytime! Check our Live Betting Options!

The Royals look to rebound after a tough loss at home last night as they take to the road for another in-state, interleague show down with the St. Louis Cardinals and will look to retain Missouri baseball bragging rights. Kansas City has been on the ascent over the last few weeks but took one on the chin last night and while they threatened in the ninth inning to make a game of it they couldn’t muster enough to complete the come back and fell by four runs in the end. KC will turn to Edinson Volquez in this one as he will face off against Carlos Martinez who has been having a very nice season and is quickly becoming the ace of the staff as he is 7-5 with a 3.02 ERA. Volquez meanwhile is 7-7 with a 5.24 mark and while he is having a disappointing season he remains an integral part of the KC rotation and in a one game show down he can certainly be counted on to lead his team to victory.

The Cardinals meanwhile are coming off a nice win last night and will continue their trek towards a potential wild card spot as it looks like the Cubs are well clear in the divisional race and will force the Cards into second place at best. St. Louis has a very nice roster still in place but they are a shadow of where they have been in years past and aside from Martinez and Adam Wainwright they don’t have a great rotation and that could end up costing them in the path to a potential playoff spot. With that being said, the Cards need to improve their interleague play as they have been woeful against the American League of late and while they did get a win yesterday and return home here without the use of a DH they are in tough against a heavy hitting Royals side.

Barracuda Championship

Barracuda Championship

 

The Barracuda Championship is an alternate event that is annually played on the PGA Tour in Western Nevada. Though it has lesser prize money and ranking points on offer, the tournament attracts a strong field. It was founded 17 years ago in 1999 and went by the name of Reno-Tahoe Open.

Founded 17 years ago in 1999 as the Reno–Tahoe Open, it is an alternate event played annually in August at the Montrêux Golf and Country Club, located midway between Reno and Lake Tahoe. Opened in 1997, the par-72 course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and plays at 7,472 yards (6,832 m); its averageelevation is 5,600 feet (1,710 m) above sea level with an elevation change of 800 feet (240 m).

Until 2010, the tournament was played in August, the same week as the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. For its first three years, it had a full field of 156 players, while the World Golf Championship event had a field of about 40. When the WGC event expanded to about 80 players in 2002, the field for the Reno–Tahoe Open was reduced to 132 players. With the launch of the FedEx Cup in 2007, the tournament and the WGC event were moved from late to early August. In 2010 the Reno–Tahoe Open was played several weeks earlier, opposite the British Open in mid-July. This lasted only one year, as it returned to early August in 2011, opposite the WGC-Bridgestone.

The purse in 2015 was $3.1 million, with a winner’s share of $558,000. The Reno–Tahoe Open gained its first title sponsor for the 2008 event, the Legends at Sparks Marina. After two years the name was returned to “Reno–Tahoe Open” in 2010. Barracuda Networks became the title sponsor in 2014

Beginning in 2012, the tournament has used the Modified Stableford scoring system, last used in a PGA Tour event at the 2006 International. The Barracuda Championship is an alternate event, which means the winner does not earn a Masters Tournament invitation. The winner still earns 24 OWGR points, 300 FedEx Cup points, a two-year tour exemption, and entry to the PGA Championship.

For 2016, the Barracuda Championship was given the honor of awarding entry to the 2016 Open Championship to the leading non-exempt player after flooding cancelled the Greenbrier Classic.

One important feature of the course is that it plays at an average elevation of 5, 600 feet above sea level with an elevation change of 800 feet – which is a challenge to the players. The course is surrounded by spectacular snow-capped mountains, tall pine trees and quite a few beautiful fairways making this one of the artistic getaways on the PGA Tour.
It also has some tricky holes for the players to watch out for – like the par-5 hole two that measures 584 yards and has a pine that sits in the middle of the fairway, or the tricky par-3 hole seven that measures 163 yards and is laced with a pot bunker on the left side.

Watch out for the “Bear Trap” at holes six through eight, which includes challenges of going over water and playing to the largest green of the course. Overall, the course is a visual delight that takes you through seven lakes and four waterfalls underneath the gorgeous snow-capped mountains.

Coming to the field this year, defending Champion J.J. Henry and former winners Gary Woodland and Geoff Ogilvy heads the list of players. With the top players set to be teeing off at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the highest ranked entrant is Patton Kizzire at number 63.

The field also boasts of four former major winners including Jon Daly who is now playing on the Champions Tour. Former world number one amateur Jon Rahm will also be in action on a sponsor exemption – watch out for the talented lad who held his own on his professional debut at the Quicken Loans National.

Last year’s action saw Henry winning the title for the second time in four years in a play-off brushing aside the challenge of Kyle Reifers. Incidentally it was the first play-off at Montreux since 2004. Seven of the past 16 winners of this tournament have made it their first PGA Tour victory although the last one to do so was Scott Piercy in 2011.

The backdrop of a gorgeous setting and a weakened field should not take anything away from this unique alternate tournament that challenges the players to lift their game.

Wimbledon Ladies Round 1

Wimbledon Ladies Round 1

Venue: All-England Club Dates: 27 June-10 July

The women’s first round of qualifying had been completed on the second day of play at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. Unlike yesterday, when the play had been affected by the weather, all the men and women’s matches scheduled (safe one, suspended for the late hour) had been played until the end. All the top ten seeds grabbed their victories, with some upsets as seven of the other fourteen seeded players  suffered an early defeat.

Serena Williams is the most dominant player in tennis today, but she isn’t always consistent. She wasn’t consistent at the French Open, when she fell to Garbine Muguruza in the finals, and she hasn’t been perfect otherwise in 2016. But going into Wimbledon, which begins on Monday, June 27 and runs through Sunday, July 10, Williams is the top seed and favorite to walk away with her seventh title from The Championships.

Williams will likely face familiar foes throughout the draw. The top half of the draw looks tougher than the bottom half, with Williams having all of Agnieszka Radwanska, Petra Kvitova, Belinda Bencic and Timea Bacsinszky in her half. The French Open draw looked like the toughest in years for Williams, but fortunate early exits from some of her competitors gave her a relatively easy road to the finals, where she met Muguruza.

Women to watch

Johanna Konta

Britain’s number one has had a phenomenal rise — she’s gone from a ranking of 126 before Wimbledon in 2015 to the top 20 in a year. The 25-year-old is a real inspiration, proof that dedication, grit, hard work and application can pay off.

Serena Williams

Our greatest current player is one title shy of Steffi Graf’s 22 grand slams — and has come very close to equalling it. At the 2015 US Open she lost in the semi- finals, then put herself in the position again to match Graf at the Australian Open and French Open this year, but lost in the final of both. At 34, she hasn’t quite managed to get herself over the line, so it’s a hugely significant time in her career.

Garbine Muguruza

Garbiñe Muguruza is a real revelation, and a new star in women’s tennis. It’s so thrilling that she’s broken through now. She reached the final at Wimbledon last year and, at 22, has just won the French Open, her first grand slam. She has a wonderful poise and elegance in the way she handles herself on the court.

Heather Watson

The 24-year-old Brit is my second pick for the title. She’s got a neat and tidy game; she was beaten by Serena Williams at Wimbledon in the third round last year, but has vastly improved since then.
