Last week's Roundups

Wimbledon 2023 - Final Week

  • Carlos Alcaraz beats Novak Djokovic to signal changing of the guard
  • The Spaniard defeats Djokovic in a Grand Slam final, overcoming the 36-year-old Serb at his unbeatable venue.
  • Amid a feverish atmosphere on Centre Court, the 20-year-old wins a thrilling five-set final to claim the Wimbledon men's singles title.
  • Spain's Alcaraz, 20, fought back from a nervy start to win 1-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-1 3-6 6-4 against the defending champion.

This Week's Roundups

Men's cricket - Ashes 4th Test: England vs. Australia

  • Pat Cummins believes Australia can brush off their loss in the 3rd Test and maintain their 2-1 series advantage.
  • Mitchell Marsh's performance makes him a strong candidate for selection.
  • David Warner might be rested due to his recent struggles with the bat.
  • Mitchell Starc's omission from the first Test is unlikely to be repeated after his five-wicket haul in the second innings.

F1: Hungarian Grand Prix

  • Mercedes says their new front wing is expected to have a greater impact in the slow corners of the Hungaroring than at the free-flowing Silverstone layout.
  • In an ongoing overhaul to the initial design of their troublesome W14, the latest addition to the car was a front wing for the British Grand Prix.
  • Initially, the new part appeared to have failed to deliver the expected performance gains, with McLaren emerging as Red Bull and Max Verstappen's closest challengers.
  • Daniel Ricciardo will make his return to the F1 grid at the Hungarian Grand Prix as Red Bull announced his loan from the world championship leaders to replace Nyck de Vries at their junior team for the remainder of the 2023 campaign.

Men’s golf major: The 151st Open Championship

  • Cameron Smith returns as defending champion after last year's victory at St Andrews, while Rory McIlroy aims to end his major drought at the venue where he previously lifted the Claret Jug in 2014.
  • Scottie Scheffler seeks to continue his incredible 2023, and Jon Rahm targets a second major victory of the season. Brooks Koepka and other players hope to impress in Hoylake.
  • The final three qualification spots for this week's major were confirmed at the Genesis Scottish Open, with Byeong Hun An, David Lingmerth, and Nicolai Hojgaard completing the 156-man line-up, co-sanctioned by the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour.
