Merritt could only manage a three-under 69 - but his first-round score of 62 kept him well in contention.

- July 22, 2018

Brazil forward Neymar has rejected the widespread criticism he received for what many observers considered to be an overly-theatrical response to challenges during the World Cup in Russian Federation. We knew that for a while, I am with him on a daily basis and know just how much quality he has. Having moved from Barcelona to get out of the considerable shadow of Leo Messi and targeting the World Cup in a hope of winning the Ballon D'Or, he rocked up at PSG and was soon obscured by the ...

Tiger Woods finishes 5-under to fall just short at Open Tiger Woods finishes 5-under to fall just short at Open
- July 22, 2018

I putted nicely, I scrambled well when I needed to and on a day like this all you are trying to do is keep yourself in it. The pace of play, with the three-ball often having to wait to play their second shots from as early as the 2nd fairway - a situation made more hard by having an amateur shooting eight over in the game ahead and, further in front, Tommy Fleetwood waiting for a ruling by the 6th green - could not have helped, but the trio managed to keep sufficiently dry and fully occupied.

The opening hole is 396 yards on the card, with the fairway getting narrow between two bunkers. "I did everything the way I thought I needed to do it to win the championship", he added. He then bogeyed the 12th to fall two behind at 4 under. That will nearly certainly not happen today with the par-four first straight into a breeze that forecasters say could be gusting to 25mph by the time Spieth tees off 1345GMT. (more...)

The Reds will be aiming to at least challenge for the Premier League title next season. Having shelled out such a vast amount of money though, criticism is already being aimed at Klopp. Klopp has a good point too, as no one could've imagined the ripple-effect Neymar's £200m move to PSG from Barcelona has had. That is true. But it is better to change your opinion than never have one. (more...)

With the defending champion Jordan Spieth two groups behind and four shots clear alongside Xander Schauffele , Woods needed to make the most of every scoring chance on the easier front nine. This is Kisner's best major championship finish (T7 at 2017 PGA championship) and a big jump for him at The Open (T54 best finish in three starts). "It would be, as you said, better on Sunday", said Woods, whose 5-under-par 66 was his first score in the 60s at The Open in 11 years. (more...)

As he finished and walked off the green at No. 18, playing his third major this season after missing eight in a row, the man who has won 14 major titles but none since 2008 looked absolutely younger than his 42. Tiger entered the final round four shots off the lead, but he's in the mix. Birdies at the fourth and sixth hoisted Woods to seven-under and left him just a shot behind Spieth and Schauffele in third place after they both came to grief with bogeys on the fifth. (more...)

There was some controversy though with Bahrain-Merida and Italian rider Vincenzo Nibali reportedly considering legal action after he was injured in the 12th stage up to the iconic Alpe d'Huez. "In my eyes, Froomey is still our leader", said Thomas. His repeated assertions that Froome remained Sky's man for the overall win are respectful to the point of parody, but he keeps making an important point: with six Grand Tour wins under his belt, Froome's record matters, massively.
