🎾Tennis: Canadian tennis has a new champion! Leylah Annie Fernandez yesterday in straight sets over Viktorjia Golubic (pronounced GO-LUH-BICH) in the Monterrey Open. The 18-year-old didn’t drop a single set the entire tournament.
- And starting today, Fernandez and OG champ Bianca Andreescu will look for more victory in the Miami Open. Follow along .
🏀NBA: March is not Nick Nurse’s month. Not only has the Toronto Raptors’ head coach had to watch his team lose eight straight (dating back to February 26th), but after an outburst directed towards an official in which he threw his face mask on Friday night, Nurse was fined $50k. Salt on the wound.
- In non-Raptor news, LA Laker LeBron James is out indefinitely with an ankle sprain he sustained in Saturday’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks, and Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball is out indefinitely with a fractured wrist. The injury bug is out for blood.
