Now Van Dijk has vowed to return better than ever as he begins his long road to recovery. This afternoon I met with a leading consultant to start the process of planning the finer details of my rehabilitation following the incident yesterday .
Scores were 116-112, 119-109, 117-111. Lopez took advantage of a slow start by Lomachenko to build up an early lead, then finished the fight with a big 12th round that left Lomachenko bloodied and beaten on the scorecards. "Lopez is the man to beat". I knew he (Loma) was coming (at me) and I can't give him that (any chance). It also earned him plaudits from fellow Brooklyn native Mike Tyson, with the legendary former world heavyweight champion tweeting his approval following Lopez's victory.
Petersburg, Russia. The German will meet Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, who recorded a 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 triumph over Roberto Bautista Agut. Andrey Rublev (RUS x3) bt Denis Shapovalov (CAN x2) 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. "Rublev plays perhaps the best tennis of his life". Raonic has not been broken in 29 service games during the week. Djere, 25, won 7-6 (7/3), 7-5 against the Italian wildcard, having also previously won on clay in Rio de Janeiro past year.
It was a message to the team that in this team everybody has to fight for positions. Whelan admits he is delighted Bale is back with Spurs and that he is glad all the speculation over a potential return can be put to bed. The game was under control until Mourinho disrupted it with a trio of changes, including Bale's arrival. Goal! What a start from Spurs! Their belief went up and my guys were not strong enough to cope with it psychologically.
The 22-year-old Rublev added the title in Russian Federation to trophies in Doha, Adelaide and Hamburg. Zverev has had a breakthrough year in Grand Slam tournaments with his first semifinal at the Australian Open in January and first final at the U.S.
The 36-year-old South African superstar swung the odds in RCB's favour when he started the 19th over bowled by Jaydev Unadkat with three consecutive sixes. The Australian all-rounder then picked up two boundaries as Mumbai Indians collected 12 runs in the penultimate over. Shreyas Gopal gave Rajasthan their first breakthrough as he had Finch caught by Robin Uthappa in the next over.
