When tennis resumed last month from a five-month hiatus prompted by the coronavirus pandemic, it was impossible to know exactly what to expect. Turns out Naomi Osaka and Victoria Azarenka have been far and away the two best women in the sport, which is why they will face each other Saturday in the U.S. Open final. Both used to be ranked No. 1; both already own two Grand Slam titles. Osaka is 10-0 since the sport returned. ...
As a weary Serena Williams packed her bags and left Flushing Meadows in the early hours of Friday morning, her latest bid for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title snuffed out in the semi-finals of the US Open, one question was left hanging in the balmy night air: if not now, when?

A section of supporters within the stadium jeered loudly as players from both teams linked arms before kick-off for what the league had described as "a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight for equality in our country". "How can you be more upset about bringing awareness to racism than racism itself?" Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III wrote on Twitter. Fewer than a quarter of the stadium's seats were occupied due to COVID-19 restrictions but a scatter of boos mixed into cheers were audible to Texans' defensive end J.J. Watt.

During the PGA Tours Safeway Open, Harry Higgs made a walk-off albatross. He finished with a 62 and is in contention after the second round.
What a reinvention we are witnessing from Victoria Azarenka, the woman who has entered a wormhole in the space-time continuum and travelled back seven years to when she was world No 1. After outlasting Serena Williams in Thursday night’s semi-final, Azarenka is now on a winning streak of 12 straight matches. She has even eclipsed her fellow finalist Naomi Osaka as the most compelling storyline of the tournament. Both women carry a meaningful symbolism. Osaka has highlighted police brutality in the USA by wearing the name of a different black victim on her face mask, every time she walks out on court. Azarenka, meanwhile, has become the personification of the “working mothers” narrative that has come to dominate this tournament. Whisper it, but when she was such a dominant hard-court force in 2012 and 2013, Azarenka was not such an easy player to root for. She was prickly and defiant – and wound crowds up with the weird ululation that she emitted every time she struck the ball. At the 2013 Australian Open, Azarenka claimed to have rushed off court because of a “locked rib”, whereas everyone else thought she had suffered a panic attack as she tried to serve out her semi-final win over Sloane Stephens. If her relentless baseline game made her the nearest female analogue to Novak Djokovic, so too did her hard-to-quantify personality. There is nothing wrong with a few rough edges, especially when your day job involves firing projectiles at your opponent. But Azarenka herself acknowledges that she has mellowed with age – and with parenthood too. Her son Alexander was born in 2016, whereupon she became mired in a custody dispute that postponed her comeback significantly. Having fought back to beat Williams in three sets on Thursday night, Azarenka was asked what she remembered about their last-but-one meeting on Arthur Ashe Stadium, when she had served for the title. “I was young,” she replied. “My ego was way too big. So now it's a little smaller and the results are coming."
The Minnesota Wild acquired center Nick Bjugstad on Friday from the Pittsburgh Penguins for a conditional selection in the 2021 draft, a swap that includes the Penguins covering an unspecified portion of Bjugstad's $5.25 million salary next season. The 28-year-old Minnesota native played in only 13 games for the Penguins in the virus-shortened 2019-20 season. Then he suffered a different lower-body injury and did not return to action when the NHL initiated postseason play in the COVID-19 bubbles last month.
