Serena Williams puts ‘Out of office’ on for Wimbledon return – New York Daily News

WIMBLEDON, England — Serena Williams joked — or was it a joke? — that she activated the “Out of office” message on her email account so anyone trying to reach her about her many non-tennis activities while she’s at Wimbledon would know why no response arrived immediately.Great as Williams is with a racket in her hand, successful as she’s been, her sport has never been the only activity that interested her or occupied her time. All of which might very well be a factor in why, just shy of 41, she is still in the game, returning to singles action…

So after a quite productive week in which he hit two homers in a game to beat the Blue Jays and a day later drove in the game-winning walk-off run in the series opener against the hated Astros, Aaron Judge’s ongoing contract drama with the Yankees has cleared the first hurdle with an (apparently) amicable arbitration settlement at the midway point of $19 million.So now what?The way this thing has played out so far — with Judge betting on himself after rejecting the Yankees’ seven-year, $213.5 million extension offer back in April and now embarking on his best season ever…

The NBA is turning into reality TV

For Golden State, capturing the NBA title was almost as important as settling media feuds, social media scores, or whatever you want to call them.It wasn’t long after the Warriors won the title that Steph Curry was behind a microphone sticking it to (without naming him) ESPN NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins. In August, Perkins predicted the sharpshooter would not win another ring in the next four years.And along the celebratory parade route, the self-anointed “new media” guru Draymond Green found his chance to get even. He was not as diplomatic as Curry. “If they ever doubted — this is live…

Playing in front of a sellout crowd at Yankee Stadium that could best be described as feral, the Yankees and Astros were locked in a staring contest for five innings.The Astros finally broke through in the sixth, thanks to a three-run, bat-flipping homer by Kyle Tucker. At just 25 years old, nestled in the Houston batting order after mainstays Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley and Alex Bregman, one slot behind breakout sensation Yordan Alvarez, Tucker is often the overlooked man in this monstrous lineup.After making a spring-loaded jumping catch at the wall on Thursday and pumping this critical home run in…

When opposing players make mistakes, the Mets make them pay.It’s been the theme for these 2022 Mets, and their ability to capitalize on a momentous slip-up helped lead them to a 5-3 win over the Marlins in the series opener on Friday night in Miami.The second matchup of the season between the divisional opponents went back-and-forth until the turning point in the sixth inning.With Brandon Nimmo on first and Tomas Nido on second, Starling Marte ripped a marginally hard-hit ground ball to Marlins second baseman Willians Astudillo, who was filling in for Miami sparkplug Jazz Chisholm after he left Friday’s…

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United has been the subject of speculation and rumours ever since the day he signed on the dotted line to make a sensational return to Old Trafford last August.Ronaldo was first thought to be unsure about his place in the team under new manager Erik ten Hag, who has been given the monumental task of rebuilding and re-energising a vastly underperforming squad.The 37-year-old then appeared to confirm he would be staying after telling club media that he 'was and still am very happy to be here'. The Portuguese forward insisted he still has faith in this…

Before the euphoric walk-off wins, 52-18 start and way-to-early parade plans, the Yankees were raked over the coals for not doing enough with their offseason.When the 2021 season ended with heartbreak in the Wild Card Game at Fenway Park, a few things were abundantly clear. Gleyber Torres couldn’t be the everyday shortstop anymore and Gary Sanchez had run his course, failing to make any significant strides on defense while wielding an inconsistent bat.But instead of wrangling household names to replace them, the Yankees inserted two players who could generously be described as no names, particularly in the Northeast.

Aaron Hicks blasts 3-run HR in 9th, Aaron Judge singles to power Yanks past Astros, 7-6

Aaron Hicks? Yes, Aaron Hicks.The often-ridiculed, sometimes downright unwatchable outfielder was the Yankees’ hero on Thursday night. His three-run, no-doubt home run in the bottom of the ninth tied things up. Five batters later, Aaron Judge’s walk-off liner into the left field corner gave the Yankees an improbable 7-6 win just hours before Judge is set for an arbitration hearing that will decide his salary.Hicks was slugging just .288 heading into the game, the eighth-lowest among any player with at least 200 plate appearances. For his late-game showdown with Astros’ closer Ryan Pressly, that was irrelevant. The only thing that…

Can the Yankees bullpen take some of the burden off of Clay Holmes and Michael King?

Can the Yankees bullpen take some of the burden off of Clay Holmes and Michael King?

ST. PETERSBURG -- In the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday night, Michael King popped up onto the bullpen mound. The Yankees’ reliable right-hander had been noticeably missing from the game the night before. Manager Aaron Boone had explained that they were managing King’s workload carefully. As soon as Giancarlo Stanton grounded into a double play ending the Yankees’ chance at tying it, King sat right back down.That is the tough spot Boone and the Yankees are in with their bullpen right now. King and Clay Holmes have been terrific, reliable and dominant. The bullpen has also been hit by…

Isaac Paredes hits three home runs as Rays beat Yankees

Isaac Paredes hits three home runs as Rays beat Yankees

ST. PETERSBURG — Familiarity breeds home runs? At least that’s what Nestor Cortes thinks after getting hammered by the Rays Tuesday night. Cortes gave up a career-high three homers to the Rays, including two to young infielder Isaac Paredes, who hit a third later in the Tampa’s 5-4 win over the Yankees at Tropicana Field Tuesday night.“I think the game plan they had was pretty good. Obviously facing them three times in a month probably gave them a little bit of an advantage, but if (the pitches) were better located I think I could have done the job,” Cortes said…

Mets’ bats, pitchers falter in loss to Astros

HOUSTON – While Mets pitchers scuffled against the Astros, Max Scherzer was 1,643 miles northeast of Minute Maid Park. He navigated his first rehab start, pitched into the fourth inning and showed flashes of what earned him three Cy Young awards.On Tuesday night, the Mets would’ve taken Scherzer’s less-than-100-percent performance over the one they got from their big-league staff in an 8-2 loss to the Astros in the opener of a two-game set.As a spot starter, Trevor Williams at least kept the Mets in the game. But his three runs allowed in four innings hardly represented his best outing. Jose…

Aaron Judge arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday

Aaron Judge arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday

ST. PETERSBURG — The Yankees and Aaron Judge are not going to get an answer about his 2022 contract on Wednesday, at least not from an arbitrator. Despite reports earlier this season that the sides would meet with the arbitrator on June 22, the hearing is now scheduled for Friday. So, there are at least two more days for the Yankees to try to avoid what seems like a very poorly-timed battle over $4 million. While the arbitrator is not allowed to take Judge’s 2022 performance into consideration, the Yankees have to. They should consider how Judge is leading this…
