MLB Trade Deadline Ends, Williams Out in Surprising Loss at Stanford Classic, Wawrinka’s Comeback Falters with Loss at Washington Open and Digne Signs with Everton

The MLB trade deadline ended yesterday. Some significant transactions on the last day include the Atlanta Braves acquisition of Kevin Gausman from the Baltimore Orioles, the Pittsburgh Pirates' acquisition of Chris Archer from the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Dodgers acquisition of Brian Dozier from the Minnesota Twins.

Serena Williams shocked viewers with an uncharacteristic defeat in her opening match of the Stanford Classic, sponsored by Mubadala Investment Company, last night according to the Associated Press. British player Johanna Konta beat the 23 Grand Slam-winning Williams 6-1, 6-0.

"I know I can play a zillion times better so that kind of helps out, too. I have so many things on my mind I don't have time to be shocked about a loss that clearly wasn't at my best right now," Williams said. "When I was out there, was fighting. That's the only thing I can say, I wasn't just like giving it away and I was moving a lot better. So I'm just trying to take the positives out of it."

Former #3 in the world tennis star Stan Wawrinka lost 4-6 7-6 6-7 loss to American Donald Young at the Washington Open yesterday, the AP reports. Wawrinka is struggling in a comeback year after going through knee surgery in 2017.

"I was missing a lot. Not feeling the way I wanted. I'm looking for confidence, for sure. It's tough to not win a lot of matches. Then you start to think too much on the court."

BBC Sport reports that Lucas Digne has been signed by Everton from Barcelona for a five-year deal worth £18 million. The 25-year-old Digne will be playing in his fourth country in the last three years having previously played in France for Paris Saint-Germain and Italy for Roma.

"Everton is a big club with a great history. I want to play games, win games and excite the fans with the quality of our football," Digne said."I want to show my best football here and discover the best league in the world. Everybody loves the Premier League. I am loving the fact I am coming here."
