Djokovic Advances at Cincinnati, Halep Match Suspended, Davis Cup Announces Changes for 2019, Real Madrid Lose in Super Cup to Atlético in First Game Without Ronaldo and Kasey Kahne Retires from NASCAR Racing
Novak Djokovic triumphed yesterday over French player Adrian Mannarino, winning 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 at the Cincinnati Open. Djokovic, who won the Men's Singles title at Wimbledon last month, has competed five times at Cincinnati, but has yet to win. The Associated Press quotes Djokovic on the determination he's derived from his history in the tournament.
"I think it adds more to the motivation rather than pressure," Djokovic said. "I really want to win this tournament. I definitely need to play better than I have in the first couple of matches."
Elsewhere in Cincinnati, 2018 Rogers Cup champion Simona Halep's match against Ajla Tomljanovic was suspended due to rainfall. Rogers Cup finalist Sloane Stephens beat out German Tatjana Maria 6-3, 6-2.
In other tennis news, an announcement on the Davis Cup's official website indicated that as of 2019, "the competition will see 18 nations and the world's best players compete in a week long season finale to be crowned Davis Cup champions". The new version of the competition will debut from November 18 to 24 next year in either Madrid, Spain or Lille, France.
Real Madrid debuted their first match without star Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently signed with Juventus, with a 4-2 loss to Atlético Madrid at the UEFA Super Cup. It was also the team's first game without manager Zinedine Zidane, who was replaced by former Spain coach Julen Lopetegui, according to BBC Sport.
NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, who has 18 victories in 15 cup seasons, announced his retirement from racing via Twitter today. Kahne, who is 38 years old, explained his decision in the tweet as resulting from the difficult schedule he had to endure, and his desire to spend more time with his son.
"..racing in cup full time for a few more years was just something that I couldn't commit to. I'm not sure what the future holds for me, but I know I'm at ease with the decision that I have made. The highs didn't outweigh the lows and the grueling schedule takes a toll on your quality of life. I need to spend more time doing the things I enjoy and love and that's spending time with Tanner and my sprint car teams."
