At Cincinnati Djokovic/Dimitrov and Federer/Mayer Matches Suspended Due to Rainfall, Keys Beats Kerber and Halep Wins Postponed Match - Patriots Triumph Over Super Bowl Champ Eagles and Green Bay’s Rodgers Returns for Win Against Steelers
At the Cincinnati Masters yesterday, defending champion Grigor Dimitrov and 2018 Wimbledon-winner Novak Djokovic had their match suspended overnight due to heavy rainfall. Also postponed was Roger Federer's match against Argentine Leonardo Mayer. Angelique Kerber, who won the Women's Singles title at Wimbledon last month, was beaten by American player Madison Keys. 2018 Rogers Cup-winner Simona Halep won her suspended match against Ajla Tomljanovic 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 yesterday afternoon.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots beat 2018 Super Bowl champions the Philadelphia Eagles 37-20 in a preseason game last night. ESPN reports that Brady led six drives, of which the first led to a touchdown pass to receiver Chris Hogan. This was Brady's first preseason game, as he had to miss the opener against the Washington Redskins on August 9 due to a sore back.
"It's the first time having to do that in about six months," Brady said after Brian Hoyer wrapped up the victory. "I feel like my timing could be better in certain areas. I've been doing this for a long time, so a lot of it is second nature at this point."
Elsewhere, the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 51-34 at Lambeau Field last night. Quarterback and two-time Associated Press-voted league MVP Aaron Rodgers got a standing ovation at the game after having been absent for almost 11 months, according to the AP.
"To be back at Lambeau was a thrill and the ovation touched me," Rodgers said. "I have to kind of wipe away some tears in my eyes."
