Having won Monte Carlo and Barcelona, Nadal is well-placed to add Madrid to what is becoming an impressive trophy collection this season. Seemingly in control with a triple-set point as Thiem served at 4-5, Nadal had his momentum stopped by the courageous shotmaking of Thiem.
Scorer of the goal that won Chelsea the title, Michy Batshuayi will hope to make his first Premier League start for the club in Monday's home game with Watford.

Champions League-chasing Arsenal moved within a point of fourth-placed Liverpool with a comfortable 4-1 win over Stoke City. Arsene Wenger has accused some Premier League teams of "having a breezer" instead of fighting until the end of the campaign, as Arsenal look for help from others in order to get into the top four.
Because we work very hard. "I probably work, this season, harder than ever". "And I think it makes sense to say it". Asked whether the Ajax match was now pivotal in determining this season as a success or failure, the Portuguese said: "I think by you, by you media, you have the right to say (that)".
The 28-year-old revealed he might need "a week or two" to recover and that obviously makes his a doubt for the BMW PGA Championship which takes place at Wentworth the week after next. "I felt a bit of stiffness on Sunday, when I hit a couple of drives that didn't feel quite..." Now McIlroy fears he will miss the BMW PGA and where he reigned supreme in 2014.
Unai Emery's men are trailing the league leaders by three points ahead of their final game against Caen , but Monaco still have a game in hand and a far superior goal difference. Emery hasn't earned many plaudits in his first season in France, struggling to impose an attractive style early on, then falling behind Monaco in the Ligue 1 race.
Speaking to Dr. Phil on his television program (h/t Shutdown Corner's Jay Busbee ), Jenkins-Hernandez said she didn't believe Hernandez killed himself. A Department of Corrections report found that Hernandez had hanged himself with a bed sheet, had spread shampoo all over the floor of his cell and jammed the door with cardboard.
But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys". Kaepernick's ongoing availability seems mostly to do with non-football reasons, since he played reasonably well for the San Francisco 49ers last season (2,709 total yards; 16:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio).
Maybe not. But neither is a Washington team that pulled out a one-point win in Friday's Game 6, becoming the first team to stave off elimination on its home floor this postseason. There are more numbers that point to a bounce back game in the finale at the Garden. Thomas may not need a big effort in Game 7 for Boston to close it out, but Al Horford will nearly certainly need to keep playing at a high level.
The Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers have already announced jersey patch agreements for next season , making the Cavs the fifth team to announce such an agreement. The most notable is the Cleveland Cavaliers, who will sport the Goodyear wingfoot logo. As with all jersey logo deals, jerseys sold at the national level will not have the corporate logo on them, but the team can sell ones in their official stores and at their arenas that do.
But we can win a trophy and by winning that trophy we can play Champions League next season, so that's the game. Belgium midfielder Fellaini was a peacemaker as he prevented team-mates from being involved in further trouble but the harsh fact is that Bailly will miss the final against Ajax in Stockholm on Wednesday, May 24.
If Manchester United play anything like they did against Arsenal last week, then this is only going one way. The Lilywhites will play all of their home games at Wembley next season as the final stages of construction of their new stadium are completed.
Former Blackburn and Celtic striker Chris Sutton has claimed that Harry Kane did not dive in Tottenham's win against Arsenal on Sunday. Victor Wanyama believes Tottenham have "bigger things" on their radar than overcoming London rivals Arsenal as they eye a grandstand finish to their season.
If Jose Mourinho has put all his eggs in the Europa League basket, then this is arguably Manchester United's most important match of the season. "I leave Highbury they were crying". Liverpool have done their best in recent weeks to hand a place in the top four to Manchester United only to have their rivals, at each time of asking, hand it back.
The formal presentation of the long-awaited Alvarez-Golovkin bout saved the day for what was otherwise a dreary, one-sided PPV card capped off by a blow-out main event. That appears to be in the past, as the fight the boxing world has clamored for is just over the horizon. "The difference is, this fight is going to have a lot of action, nonstop action", said De La Hoya, who's calling the bout "Bombs Away".
However, the government of Ogun State where his mother hails from is considering honouring the young boxer by naming a significant stadium and street after him. A clause in their contract allows the beaten fighter to ask for a rematch but Klitschko said he would take some time before making a decision. "It is the only one the world wants to see and I am here, I am the lineal champion, I am still number one in the world and everybody knows that", Fury told SkySports.
Michy Batshuayi could get his first Premier League start against Watford after scoring the title-clinching goal on his 18th substitute appearance. "I know them, I know the characteristics of my players and we can improve". "Congratulations to Chelsea. They've had a great season and deserve it, they were better than everyone else in the Premier League". "Sometimes you score a lot, sometimes you don't", said the Italian striker.
Kelly Olynyk of the Boston Celtics is knocked to the floor by Kelly Oubre Jr. Like, c'mon man. Kelly Oubre hit (referee) Monty McCutchen harder than he hit Olynyk! The NBA acknowledged that Olynyk's infraction was nothing more than a common foul.
Tottenham have once again failed to win the title and their lose of points of West Ham ensured that Chelsea had won the title once they won their game over West Brom on Friday night. But if I was on your side, in your chair, it makes (sense). And Pochettino insists that Spurs, who are likely to finish second in the Premier League for the first time, will look inwards before looking to the transfer market.
Nadal will face David Goffin in the quarter-finals after the Belgian beat fifth seed Milos Raonic 6-4 6-2. 'I can not promise to play or pull out right now. "But I was able to play two matches and (my wrist) has gotten better". I think we have done damage to each other during our careers. Wednesday's match was his first since splitting with longtime coach Marian Vajda.
Sale threw a 98 miles per hour fastball at the knees and behind Machado in the first inning of Tuesday night's game at Fenway Park, leading plate umpire D.J. "I bleed for them". The person banned was not the person who directed insults at Jones. The blast sparked an 8-3 win in Boston. The Baltimore Orioles are hitting the end of their seven-game road trip and they can not get out of Boston soon enough.
So to have that record of winning so many matches, to not lose so many matches, it's something that's not normal. "I think in all the games he's played until now, he's shown intelligence, composure on the ball". All round a good win against a Manchester United side who clearly have one eye on the Europa League . Leicester City are expected to receive £66m in prize money following their run to the quarterfinals, while Manchester City banked £75.8m last season after making it to the ...
Australia paceman Pat Cummins was the pick of the bowlers for the home team, finishing with figures of 2/21 from his four overs. The live streaming of the IPL 2017's top two sides of the tournament between DD vs RCB , Match 56 will be available on Hotstar .
But as ever, Liverpool like to make things hard for themselves, so we can only hold out breath and wait to see how the game turns out. Lallana has been one of Liverpool's best players in the 2016-17 campaign alongside Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho and African forward Sadio Mane.
At the London Stadium, Liverpool took the lead when Coutinho's sublime pass was converted by Daniel Sturridge early in the first half. And it is the goals from academy graduate Kane over the last three seasons that have propelled the side up the standings.
