    American Coco Gauff has rallied from a tough opening set to beat Mirra Andreeva of Russia in an all-teen showdown in the third round of the French Open. The 19-year-old Gauff prevailed 6-7 (5), 6-1, 6-1. That ended an impressive Grand Slam debut for the 16-year-old Andreeva. Casper Ruud also recovered from a set down to beat Zhang Zhizhen and end a strong run by the Chinese player. The fourth-seeded Ruud won 4-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4. Top-ranked Iga Swiatek continued her impressive run as she took just 51 minutes to beat Xinyu Wang 6-0, 6-0. Reigning Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina has pulled out of the French Open because she is sick.

      Manchester City's mission to win a treble of major trophies has stayed on track after beating Manchester United 2-1 in the FA Cup final with the first of Ilkay Gundogan's two goals coming after a record 13 seconds. City has already retained the Premier League and now only a first-ever Champions League title stands between Pep Guardiola's team and immortality in English soccer. Gundogan scored the quickest goal in an FA Cup final that was timed by British broadcaster BBC at 12.91 seconds, United midfielder Bruno Fernandes equalized with a 33rd-minute penalty. Gundogan scored the winner in the 51st. It was the 142nd FA Cup final and the first between the two Manchester clubs.

        Corey LaJoie is finally getting a chance to drive for Hendrick Motorsports this week. He wanted so badly to drive the No. 48 car a few years ago when Jimmie Johnson was stepping away that he penned a letter to team owner Rick Hendrick. The ride went to Alex Bowman and LaJoie ended up with Spire Motorsports. But with Chase Elliott suspended for Sunday's race at World Wide Technology Raceway for his intentional wreck of Denny Hamlin, LaJoie will be driving the No. 9 car. Carson Hocevar will take his place in the No. 7 car for Spire.

          Max Verstappen has steered his Red Bull to pole position at Formula One's Spanish Grand Prix ahead of Carlos Sainz. The two-time defending champion and points leader has secured pole for four of seven races this season. Sainz got his Ferrari into the front row, with Lando Norris third for McLaren. Home favorite Fernando Alonso could do no better than eighth after his Aston Martin took some damage to the bottom after running through the gravel. Charles Leclerc took pole last year but this time he will start from 19th after his Ferrari was perplexingly slow.

            In 1992, Chicago’s Michael Jordan scores a record 35 points, including a record six 3-pointers, in the first half as the Bulls beat Portland 122-89 in the opening game of the NBA Finals. See more sports moments from this date:

              SANTA CLARA, Calif. — If the Warriors or Sharks had their leading scorer in each of the past six seasons leave the team, it would be a pretty big deal. But when that exact thing happened to the 49ers this offseason with kicker Robbie Gould’s exit, more attention was paid to when the team drafted his replacement. Kickers get no respect — even when you really need them. Kyle Shanahan knows how ...

              Oklahoma claimed its 50th straight win in style. Tiare Jennings and Kinzie Hansen homered, and No. 1 seed Oklahoma rolled past No. 4 Tennessee 9-0 in five innings on Saturday to advance to the Women's College World Series semifinals. The Sooners (58-1) inched closer to a possible third consecutive national title and extended their Division I record for consecutive victories.

              TAMPA, Fla. — A donor approached Florida Gators athletic director Scott Stricklin recently with a hypothetical question percolating around big-time college sports. If I had $100 in my pocket, should I give it to the Gator Boosters or a name, image and likeness (NIL) fund? “Well, with all due respect,” Stricklin replied, “I’d love for you to find another $100 and do both.” Until July 2021, a ...

              Rylee Holtorf had three hits to help Washington defeat Utah 4-1 in the Women's College World Series. She went 3-for-3 with three RBIs.

Mariah Lopez went the distance for Utah and allowed four runs in six innings. Kendall Lundberg's RBI double produced the Utes' only run.


              Rory McIlroy didn't look like he was going anywhere at the Memorial until he wound up with a share of the lead. That's how tough it was at Muirfield Village. McIlroy had a 70 and was tied with Si Woo Kim and David Lipsky. That leads to a Sunday that figures to be wide open. There are 22 players separated by three shots. That includes Hideki Matsuyama and Patrick Cantlay. They helped everyone's cause by making triple bogeys at various points in their rounds. Nine of those 22 players in the mix have never won on the PGA Tour.

              Bills safety Damar Hamlin kicked off a multicity tour at his home stadium on Saturday to distribute medical equipment and promote techniques that saved his life in January.

              NEW YORK — For football fans of a certain age, it may seem unthinkable that the entire AFC North division is now playing catch-up with the Cincinnati Bengals. This is a franchise that did not appear in a single playoff game from 1991 through 2004. They lost in the AFC’s wild-card round five straight years from 2011 through 2015. They watched the Pittsburgh Steelers (2005, 2008) and Baltimore ...
