Novak Djokovic came from two sets down to defeat rising star Jannik Sinner 5-7 2-6 6-3 6-2 6-2 in a stunning win that saw the World No.1 clinch a place in the semi-finals of Wimbledon. The match presented a clash of two talents at very different stages of their career, as the quarter-final was Djokovic’s 53rd appearance at such a stage compared to Sinner’s third. However, the young Italian put in a performance that belied his years but he ultimately ran out of steam as the Serb battled back from two sets down. Heading into the match, Djokovic had won 25 successive matches on the hallowed grass of SW19 and to many fans it was a formality that the 35-year-old would defeat Sinner as he pursues a 21st Grand Slam title to close the gap on Rafael Nadal in the battle to have the most men's major singles titles in history.

O. J. Simpson wasn’t black. He came of age in the 1960s—the era of Muhammad Ali’s opposition to the Vietnam War and John Carlos and Tommie Smith’s black-power salute at the 1968 Olympics. But the O. J. Simpson I knew, and the one poignantly depicted this year in Ezra Edelman’s epic documentary, O.J.: Made in America , recognized only one struggle—the struggle to advance O. J. Simpson. When the activist Harry Edwards attempted to enlist Simpson in the Olympic boycott, Simpson rebuffed him and later claimed that organizers like … [Read more...] about What O. J. Simpson Means to Me
