Rafael Nadal takes the French Open once again and the Spurs are turning the NBA Finals into a yawner. Find out what else happened!
Sports News - Nadal Wins AgainHere's is a shocker for you - Rafael Nadal won the French Open again! The Spaniard won his third straight French Open defeating Roger Federer in four sets. Up until Monday, Federer had won every Grand Slam in the last year earning him the number one ranking. But dating back to April 2005, Nadal has won 81 straight clay court matchers. If only every Grand Slam tournament was on clay, Nadal would be the greatest tennis player ever!
Sports News - Spurs on Cruise ControlThe Spurs easily defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in four games in the NBA Finals. The Cavs were taken down in the first two games in San Antonio and had no answers for the Spurs' dynamic tandem of Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. LeBron and the Cavs kept in close for Game 3, but fell a little short in the final seconds. In Game 4, the Cavs rallied once again in an attempt to steal the show, but fell short once again, allowing San Antonio to win 83-82 in a four-game sweep. While it was a pretty boring series, we can only hope there will be a team that can compete with the Spurs next season.
Sports News - Yankees on a RollOn Wednesday, the Yankees plowed over the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2. The win increased the Yankees' current winning streak to eight games. The Yankees are now one game over .500 and are playing their best ball of the season. A huge part of their success can be attributed to Alex Rodriguez who is leading the Major Leagues with 25 home runs. It is about time A-Rod is living up to that huge contract!
