Historically, planning too far ahead has been a very unsafe game and many teams over the years have tripped up when resting players or taking the foot off the pedal to prepare for later matches.

The birdie at No. 3 seemed to give Hataoka a big confidence boost as she attacked the greens, softened by Sunday's rain showers that forced the start of play to be delayed by an hour. Much of her success has come in the past three months after she won the tour's qualifying tournament in December to earn her full tour card. Hataoka entered the week 30th in the world ranking, a far change from a disappointing rookie season a year ago in which she made only eight of 19 cuts on the LPGA Tour - ...

Becky Hammon continues to break through the glass ceiling of professional sports. Hammon will take over as Popovich's top assistant and she's one step closer to becoming the NBA's first female head coach. She served as head coach of the Spurs Las Vegas Summer League teams in 2015 and 2016, guiding the 2015 squad to the Summer League championship. If the Spurs do look for an in-house replacement, Ettore Messina is also a possibility, as he was the acting head coach during the 2018 ...
The notice was served after the enigmatic batsman, who is now out of favour with the national selectors and national team management spoke about several instances, where he was approached to spot-fix matches, under-perform or sit out.

A win for Uruguay will see them top Group H on nine points with La Celeste potentially slated to play the runners up of Group B which will be either Spain, Portugal or Iran. Our main goal of course was to qualify and we've done that. All three games we had more possession than the opposition, but obviously we have areas we must improve and the coach will look at that going forward.

The Lakers, the franchise that Leonard wants to be traded to, did not have a good initial conversation with the Spurs , ESPN reported recently.
