Williams and Federer Advance to Wimbledon Quarter-Finals, Sei Young Kim Shatters LPGA Record, Sagan Wins Stage 2 of Tour de France, Bulls Match $78 Million Contract for Zach Lavine, Vettel Wins British GP and Jones Scores First Cup at Daytona
Serena Williams has reached her 13th quarter-final at Wimbledon after beating Russian player Evgeniya Rodina 6-4, 6-2 today. The AP quotes Williams on the win:
"It was tougher than the scoreline," Williams said. "I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever. So it's really cool. You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great."
Eight-time champion Roger Federer also advanced to the quarter-finals with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 win over France's Adrian Mannarino. This marks Federer's 32nd consecutive set win at Wimbledon, two fewer than his personal record of 34 between the third round in 2005 and the final in 2006.
Sei Young Kim won the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic shooting 31-under 257 and shattering LPGA records. According to LPGA.com, Kim's performance at Thornberry Creek broke the 72-hole scoring record, "which she previously owned along with Annika Sorenstam, who totaled a 27-under in 2001."
The 2018 Tour de France kicked off on Saturday and Slovakian rider Peter Sagan won Stage 2 yesterday. Sagan was disqualified last year after officials ruled that he had caused a crash which broke Mark Cavendish's shoulder, according to the Associated Press. Sagan is not bitter about the incident, however, and expressed gratitude to be back in the race.
"Revenge? I already forgot about last year," Sagan said. "I'm just happy I can be in the Tour de France, the biggest race in the world."
The Chicago Bulls matched a $78 million offer that the Sacramento Kings had offered restricted free agent Zach LaVine on Sunday, ESPN reports. With Lavine missing 91 out of a possible 162 games in the past two seasons, the 23-year-old assured those who may be critical of his re-signing that he would prove his value to the Bulls.
"At the end of the day, I believe in myself, I believe in my work, and I'm going to show the city of Chicago it's a good choice and I'm here to stay. I'm going to be their guy, and I'm ready to do whatever to help this team get back to that spot."
Sebastian Vettel won the British Grand Prix on Saturday. The German driver beat out British rival Lewis Hamilton, and tied Alan Proist for the third highest amount of wins at 51.
22-year-old Erik Jones scored his first NASCAR Cup Series victory at the Daytona International Speedway on Saturday.
