Anderson Wins 6 and a Half Hour Epic Against Isner at Wimbledon, Dylan Groenewegen Wins Stage Seven in Tour de France, Chelsea Parts Ways with Manager Conte, Lin Traded to Hawks and Sports Betting Pulls in $16 Million in NJ
Kevin Anderson has won an epic semi-final against John Isner after five sets scoring a 7-6(6), 6-7(5), 6-7(9), 6-4, 26-24 victory. The marathon lasted a total of six hours and 35 minutes - the second-longest in Wimbledon history.
Dutch rider Dylan Groenewegen won stage seven of the Tour de France at Chartres today, the Telegraph reports. This marked his first win of this Tour this year, as he denied Fernando Gaviria and Peter Sagan. Groenewegen previously won at stage 21 of the 2017 Tour de France.
The Associated Press reports that Chelsea Football Club has fired manager Antonio Conte. Despite winning the English Premier League and FA Cup during his two years with the team, Chelsea failed to secure a Championship League qualification last season, finishing fifth in the league. A statement on the Chelsea website summed up the team's achievements under Conte and wished him luck in the future.
During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup. In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories.
We wish Antonio every success in his future career.

Joseph Tsai, the Nets minority owner, tweeted praise for Lin:
Jeremy is not only exciting to watch, he sets an example for perseverance and leadership. We are great friends, and I will follow his progress no matter where he is.
