We’re not used to seeing Rafael Nadal lose on clay so much, even if it is against Novak Djokovic. The Serbian star and number two in the world beat Rafael Nadal for the second time this season in a Masters tournament final, this time claiming the Italian Open in Rome to make it his third ATP 1000 title, and maybe placing himself as the favorite to win the Roland Garros for the first time in his career.

Posted on 18 May, 2014, by in Boxing

In order to get a shot at a Welterweight title, Juan Manuel Marquez needed to beat Mike Alvarado in an eliminator. He had no problem doing that despite getting knocked down late in the bout, coming away with a comfortable unanimous decision (119-109, 117-109, 117-109) that gave him the unimportant WBO international Welterweight belt but more importantly put him closer for a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao.
