Can Williams win an eighth Wimbledon title? Beaten in the 2016 final by Serena Williams, Kerber said: "I was expecting a very tough and close match against Daria".

It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going (to the White House).

I anticipate Shai Gilgeous-Alexander rising up teams' draft boards as they get a closer look at him and envision how versatile he could be in a few years when he adds some more muscle to his frame.
