Wilson’s late heroics lift Seahawks over Packers

After a shaky beginning, Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, Bobby Wagner and Seattle’s defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Seahawks stayed in the middle of the NFC playoff race. “We’ve been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump,” Wagner said. “We’ve been down, we’ve been up, we’ve lost close games, we’ve won close games. It was time.” Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. In

Red Sox’s Mookie Betts caps off winning year with MVP award

Mookie Betts is ready to become an ambassador for baseball, now that he’s won a batting title, World Series and Most Valuable Player award with Boston. “I enjoy being kind of a face around the game. I’ve kind of used this pedestal or whatever you want to say to spread knowledge that the game is fun,” he said Thursday after his runaway victory for the AL MVP award. Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich was close to a unanimous pick for the NL honour. A 26-year-old outfielder just like Betts, Yelich also won a batting championship and led his team to a division

Matt Wallace FINED £3,000 for slow play despite back-to-back Dubai birdies

This season’s triple Tour winning Wallace was adjudged to have taken too long to putt out for par on the ninth hole and this after bizarrely being timed in birdying both the seventh and eighth holes on the Earth Course. The Tour’s Chief Referee, Andy McFee, was waiting for Wallace as he headed to the scorer’s hut having ended his round by also birding four of his closing five holes. His round of 68 saw him share fifth place in the closing Rolex Series event. Wallace had been advised by McFee he was ‘on the clock’ during the time he

Murray & Azarenka reach mixed doubles semi-finals

Jamie Murray won the Wimbledon mixed doubles in 2017 with Martina Hingis and 2007 alongside Jelena Jankovic

Venue: All England Club, Wimbledon Dates: 2-15 July

Britain’s Jamie Murray and partner Victoria Azarenka beat Jean-Julien Rojer and Demi Schuurs to reach the semi-finals of the mixed doubles.

Murray and Azarenka, from Belarus, fought back from a set down to win 4-6 7-5 7-5 against the Dutch fourth seeds.

They will play British duo Harriet Dart and Jay Clarke in the last four.

Dart and Clarke beat 10th seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal of Colombia and Abigail Spears of the United States 7-6 (12-10) 7-5 to secure their last-four place.

“Harriet and Jay are on an awesome run and have beaten some good doubles pairs but it’s got to come to an end,” Murray said.

“I have a few more grey hairs after this match. There were some crazy points, so we did a great job to get through.”

Murray, 32, won the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon last year with now-retired Swiss Martina Hingis.

He had initially chosen to miss the mixed event this year to focus on the men’s doubles to protect his sore knees.

However, the opportunity to partner former world number one and two-time Australian Open winner Azarenka, 28, persuaded him to take part.

In the deciding set Murray and Azarenka were 6-5 up having held serve, but missed four match points on Schuurs’ serve.

On the fifth occasion Murray advanced to the net and produced a backhand volley to secure the victory.

“We have taken it one match at a time, we have had some tough matches, which has brought us together as pair,” Azarenka said.

“Jamie stepped it up in the last game because I had chances but kept going in the wrong direction.”

Brits bow out as Bryan makes final

Britain’s Dominic Inglot and Croat Franko Skugor lost their men’s doubles semi-final in a five-set thriller.

The pair battled back from two sets down against American seventh seeds Mike Bryan and Jack Sock but lost the deciding set as they were beaten 6-3 6-1 6-7 (11-13) 6-7 (6-7) 6-4.

Bryan was playing men’s doubles at Wimbledon for the first time in two decades without twin brother Bob, who has been ruled out of the tournament with a hip injury.

The Bryan twins have won Wimbledon three times – in 2006, 2011 and 2013.

In the other semi-final Britain’s Joe Salisbury and partner Frederik Nielsen of Denmark lost 7-6 (8-6) 3-6 6-3 6-4 to 13th seeds Michael Venus of Australia and Raven Klaasen of South Africa.
