Nadal Progresses To Second Round Of U.S. Open

Ferrer had led the first set but a break in the second set due to a calf injury brought the match to an end.

Ferrer, whose decision to retire brings the curtain down on his final appearance at a Grand Slam, said he had taken an injection before the match but was in obvious discomfort and need treatment courtside before he chose to quit. I'm so sorry because I can't finish the match.

Andy Murray was a victor in his return to Grand Slam tennis, beating James Duckworth 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 in the first round of the U.S. Open.

He is 3-1 against Federer in Grand Slam finals and 12-6 overall in championship matches, including wins at Wimbledon and the US Open in 2015.

Wolves are hopeful that Matt Doherty will be fit for City test
In the last two seasons when Championship winners have faced Premier League winners, the former has been victorious. Manchester City head to the Molineux Stadium to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in pursuit of three more points.

Andy Murray vs. No. 31 Fernando Verdasco: After an encounter lasting three-and-a-half hours with Australia's James Duckworth (and three boxes of sushi after), Murray would want to finish up the next few matches as fast as possible leading up to Week 2, but Spaniard Verdasco poses a big threat to his journey.

Venus Williams moved to the second round by beating Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 in a matchup of past U.S. Open champions.

Simona Halep crashed out in the first round, becoming the first No. 1 seed in the Open era to do so. Rafael Nadal (French) and Novak Djokovic (Wimbledon), won the first three majors of the year. The 22-year-old is playing her first main-draw Grand Slam event this year.

Nadal, who like his opponent was sweating profusely in the oppressively humid conditions, paid tribute to Ferrer.

Updated 1:15 pm: Hurricane watch posted for Maui County
The latest track from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center has just about all the island chain inside the "Cone of Uncertainty ". Sandbags are seen near a stairway at the west end of the Sheraton Waikiki hotel in Honolulu in preparation for Hurricane Lane.

Ferrer, 36, will play his last tournament on home ground in Madrid next year. "I like the city", said Kanepi, who is from Estonia and is sharing a coach this week with another player, Andrea Petkovic. The US Open could very well determine which one is the head of the 2018 class. Williams, the 23-time major champion who missed last year's U.S. Open because she gave birth on September 1, returned with a flourish, following singer Kelly Clarkson's opening night performance in Arthur Ashe Stadium with a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Magda Linette under the lights. Well, that's another story - and exactly what happened on Monday in the all-Canadian clash between Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov. Auger-Aliassime already had been visited by a doctor during a changeover in the third set and said his heart was racing.

Their combined age made this the youngest U.S. Open men's match since 2006, when Novak Djokovic, 19, beat Donald Young, 17.

Wawrinka, the former world number three, now down at 101, shrugged off having to take a medical time-out early in the third set.

The 31-year-old has not played at a Slam since Wimbledon in 2017 and there remain serious doubts over whether or not he can last two weeks of intense best-of-five sets in NY.

Trump's ex-lawyer pleads guilty to charges over hush money
Manafort was found guilty on five tax fraud charges, two counts of bank fraud and one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts. As part of his plea deal, Cohen agreed to file corrected tax returns and pay $1.5 million to the Internal Revenue Service.

The new 14,000-seat Louis Armstrong Stadium does not have an air conditioning system but relies on a first-of-its-kind natural ventilation system, which will be put to the test as temperatures are expected to soar well above 90 Fahrenheit (32C). We played important matches for both of us.
