Technically, Rugby United New York was one of two expansion teams to Major League Rugby for the 2019 season.

But RUNY, as they have been known to be called, isn’t a typical expansion team.

The franchise, led by former U.S. men’s national rugby coach Mike Tolkin, got off to a blazing start in its first five matches, all on the road.

The latest victims were the Utah Warriors.

Connor Wallace-Simms and Mark O’Keefee each scored two tries, and first-year Rugby United New York ran away with a 47-21 rout Friday night over the host Utah Warriors in front of 1,145 fans at the snow-covered Zions Bank Stadium.

John Cullen scored two tries for Utah (1-3-1, 7 points) and Josh Anderson added a score for the Warriors, who lost back-to-back matches for the first time in the new season.

“They’re probably one of the best attacking teams in the competition,” Utah coach Alf Daniels said. “We knew that, we expected that, and we prepared for it. But we didn’t show up for it.By halftime, the game was done. We just didn’t play.”

O’Keefee broke away for a 70-yard sprint that put United up 14-0 early amid the bracing snowstorm in Herriman.

Jimmy Denise gave New York (4-1-0, 18 points) a 21-0 lead, and Wallace-Sims dotted the corner with his second try of the night with eight minutes left in the half to give the expansion club a fast start as it sought to cruise to a 26-0 lead at the break.The Warriors answered right before halftime, though.

Angus McClellan sprinted inside the five-meter line, and Cullen punched it over the line with a diving try in the 40th minute to prevent the first-half shutout.

“I don’t think there was a single guy who didn’t think we could be right back in it,” Cullen said. “That’s what we spoke about in the locker room.

But the highlights were few for Utah, which fell to 1-3-1 in Major League Rugby’s second season, without a win since the season opener at Austin Elite. New York held against a quick breakaway from Utah out of the break, then held a scrum inside the five-minute line to kill off momentum in the first 10 minutes of the match.

“We had a handling error and then sat on that scrum for about 7-8 minutes, and that took the juice away,” Cullen admitted. “We had a restart and we clearly didn’t do a very good job of that.”

Anderson, who played collegiately at Utah and BYU, pulled one back for the Warriors in the 67th minute, weaving through traffic on an ankle-breaking run for a full-field try. That pulled the hosts within 40-14 with just over 10 minutes to go.

“I’m just grateful for the minutes I get,” Anderson said. “When I get space, I do what I’m supposed to do: turn people around and score tries. That’s why they bring me in.”By the time O’Keffee slid through the snow underneath the visiting team’s uprights with three minutes remaining, United was sliding out of the frozen tundra with a big road win that propelled New York into playoff position midway through its first season.

New York has taken four wins from five games to open the 2019 season — all away from home. United’s home opener is next Friday, March 15 against fellow expansion side Toronto Arrows. Kickoff at MCU Park on Coney Island is scheduled for 5 p.m. MST on ESPN+.

Next up
The Warriors hit the road to face the Houston Sabercats (1-3-0, 6 points) at 6:30 p.m. MST March 2. The match will be carried live on ESPN+.

The Warriors return home March 30 at 2 p.m. MST against Toronto.In a conclusive stomping of the Houston SaberCats, Blewett set a Major League Rugby record for meters gained and carried the Gold to the top of the rankings. But it’s been more than a one-man effort.

The Gold sit alone atop the table. They have the best point differential. According to an analysis by Dan Power, they have the easiest strength of schedule remaining. They’ve managed a bonus point per game, equaled only by the Glendale Raptors. They’ve scored the most points with 211, a full 12% more than the second best Seattle Seawolves.

They’ve done everything they needed to do to be leading the league. Everything except beat Rugby United New York. They’ll get a chance to avenge that loss, but not until late May.

Sometimes, all that matters is how you finish.

That was the case with CJ McCollum Tuesday night in the Trail Blazers’ 125-104 win over the Clippers,

He was without a field goal until he hit a 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left in the second quarter that cut Portland’s deficit to two going into halftime.

After the pause in action, he came out on fire to lift the Blazers to their sixth road win in eight games away from home since the All-Star Break.

With the Clippers climbing up the West standings and the Blazers coming off a week that included a loss in Memphis and their fourth loss of the season to the Thunder, Tuesday was a big night for Portland.

McCollum connected on his first two shots in the third to help Portland take the lead. He missed his next shot, and then made eight straight from the end of the third into the fourth and catalyzed a run that built the Blazers’ lead to 17.

Lehigh University’s finest went 11-for-13 after the break to finish with a game-high 35 points to go with four assists and two steals. It was the fourth time this month he was the team’s leading scorer.

With the win, the Blazers pulled back into a tie with Oklahoma City for fourth in the West and improved to 16-17 on the road this season. They might not have the tiebreaker on the Thunder, but their recent success on the road is reason enough to be optimistic about this club’s chances of hosting a first round playoff series.

The Blazers still haven’t done enough to deserve to be seen as a fearsome road team. They are only 7-14 versus the conference on the road after Tuesday.

However, it did create distance from the rising Clippers, surging Spurs (winners of six straight after beating the Mavericks Tuesday) and the Jazz, who hold one of the easiest remaining schedules in the league

It won’t be easy jumping Houston and Oklahoma City in the West standings, but with the tiebreaker on the Rockets and a newfound ability to win in places besides the Moda Center, it is very possible.

It might require catching a few breaks in the schedule, like getting the Clippers on the second night of a back-to-back after having two days off, but the opportunity is there to once again finish third in the West.

With a road back-to-back awaiting this weekend against the Pelicans and sixth-place Spurs, now is the time for the Blazers to pick up their stride even more as they try to improve this current run on the road.

Portland is the road team in eight of its final 15 games, but that might not be as much of a problem as it looked it would be in mid-February.

Just like CJ on Tuesday night, all the Blazers needed to heat up was a little time off. And isn’t the end of the season the best time to get hot and play your best basketball?

We’re going to judge this team off what happens in the playoffs, so all that matters is how well they finish.

The Toronto Raptors will be looking to halt a two-game straight-up losing streak on the road when they face Oklahoma City on Wednesday night to open a home-and-home series with the slumping Thunder.

The Raptors are coming off a dominating performance in Monday’s 128-92 rout of the last-place New York Knicks as 12.5-point home chalk on the NBA odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. But the club has struggled with consistency of late, posting SU wins in just six of 11 contests ahead of Wednesday night’s Raptors vs. Thunder betting matchup at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Toronto’s recent struggles began with a 112-107 loss in Detroit on March 3. The Raptors briefly rebounded with a pair of lopsided victories in New Orleans and Miami, but followed that up with possibly their worst performance of the season in a 126-101 road loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers before suffering yet another road loss to the Pistons, falling 110-107 as 1.5-point underdogs last weekend.

SCOUTING REPORT: It’s been a busy and rough week for the Thunder in general and star Russell Westbrook in particular. The Thunder have lost three in a row, the last without Westbrook who picked up his 16th tech of the year in a loss to Golden State and the automatic one-game suspension that goes with it. Just before that Westbrook had a verbal exchange with some fans in Utah and was slapped with a $25,000 fine for that one. He should be in a real prickly mood when the Raptors face him tonight and then again on Friday back in Toronto. The three losses are three of nine in their past 13 games so the Thunder are in a bit of a slide right now.

Normally this would be a Westbrook/Kyle Lowry deal but with Lowry’s status questionable we’ll go with two we definitely expect to play. George has been over 30 points in two of the past three games and 29 in the other, so his game isn’t slipping. He has averaged almost five threes a night over that span. Siakam continues to make his case for most improved player in the NBA in his third season. He has scored 20 or more points in 20 games this year. Over his first two season in the NBA he did that just one time.

OKC has not been kind to the Raptors who own a 7-15 record all-time here … The Thunder are 23-11 at home but have lost two in a row here … It’s not often a role player gets his number retired but that will be the case before tonight’s game when Nick Collison’s number is raised to the rafters. Among the former teammates expecting to make the trek to Oklahoma City is none other than Kevin Durant who is on an off-night in Minneapolis with the Warriors. Toronto’s Serge Ibaka,obviously ,will also be in the house.

Spurs vs Heat

Spurs vs Heat : The Miami Heat pay a visit to the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center on Wednesday night.The Miami Heat have been in great form lately as they’ve won seven of their past nine games and they will be gunning for a third straight victory after blowing past the Thunder in a 116-107 road win on Monday.

San Antonio seeks their 10th straight win, facing the visiting Miami Heat who enter the AT&T Center fresh off a 116-107 road upset of the Westbrook-less Thunder. Defense once again paved the way as the Spurs defeated the defending NBA Champion Warriors 111-105 on Monday night. Led by DeMar DeRozan’s near triple-double (26/9/8) and LaMarcus Aldridge’s 23 points on 8 of 12 shooting, San Antonio held Golden State to 33% from behind the arc and just 16 points off the fast break. Completing the last of four consecutive home games before tough weekend road matchups against the Rockets and Celtics, the Spurs seek to even the season series against the Heat after falling 95-88 in Miami this past

After winning 7 of their last 10 games, Miami sits precipitously in the 8th slot of the Eastern Conference, 1 ½ games in front of the Orlando Magic and 1 back of the Brooklyn Nets.

While the Western Conference playoff teams appear set with 9th place Sacramento trailing the 8th place Clippers by 6 games, the seeding is anything but. Monday’s win over the Warriors coupled with the Thunders loss to the Heat netted the Spurs the immediate 5th seed. However, expect frequent adjustments to the compacted standings below with 11 games remaining.
Miami nets a positive scoring differential of a mere .2 points per game. Their offensive output of 105.9 ppg ranks 25th in the league, the worst of any team currently in the playoffs. However, their 3rd ranked defense allows only 105.7 ppg. Like the Spurs, the Heat have been hot in March posting the league’s third-best net rating for the month behind only the Spurs and Rockets, mostly on the strength of a league-leading defensive rating.
While the Heat lack a superior scorer, eight players average in double figures lead by Josh Richardson, Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade. Hassan Whiteside averages a double-double. Justise Winslow who recently won the starting point guard spot, keys the defense along with Richardson and Whiteside, remains day-to-day with an injured thigh.
Stability, cohesiveness, consistency, chemistry — San Antonio hasn’t possessed all these elements since Game 2 of the 2017 Western Conference Semi-Finals­­­ — until now. Finally, health, familiarity, roles, rotations, positions, and playing time appear in sync providing the platform for the Spurs to play at, and above, their potential.
The 88 points scored by the Spurs in November’s game was their third lowest output of the season. Aldridge hit only 2 of 16 shoots to finish with 16 as the team shot 40% from three but a mere 33% overall. Whiteside ate up the post with 29 points and 20 boards as Miami outscored San Antonio 46 to 24 in the paint alone.

White played 16 minutes in Miami, scoring zero points while dishing 3 assists. How his offensive game now fares against one the few defensively focused teams in the NBA will keenly influence the game’s flow and outcome.

St. John’s basketball waited until the end of Sunday’s NCAA Tournament bracket reveal to hear its name. Once the Red Storm were called, the waiting time vanished.

The Johnnies’ quick turnaround is a result of their assignment to the First Four, the tournament’s opening round, where they’ll match up with fellow No. 11 seed Arizona State in Dayton, Ohio, on Wednesday. Read on for what the Johnnies must do to move on to a first-round game against No. 6 Buffalo on Friday in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Rebound without fouling
St. John’s (21-12, 8-10 Big East) struggled rebounding all season with a small lineup, ranking ninth in the conference. It led to a tendency to get into foul trouble. That’s not something to test against Arizona State (22-10, 12-6 Pac-12), which boasts the sixth-best free throw chances to field goal attempts ratio in the nation.

The Johnnies will have to limit the production of Zylan Cheatham on both ends. The 6-foot-8 forward leads the team with 10.4 rebounds and averages 11.8 points.

Drive to the basket
The Red Storm are coming off a 1-4 stretch that hasn’t been helped by a cold shooting hand. In the Big East Tournament quarterfinals, St. John’s shot 3-for-20 from 3-point range in a blowout loss. Over the past five games, it made 33.6 percent of those shots.

“We didn’t end the season the way we wanted to but this is a new opportunity,” Marvin Clark said Sunday. “New life.”

Now is the time to focus on an otherwise inconsistent inside game. Shamorie Ponds has the ability to drive to the basket, score in bunches and open up the rest of the floor by drawing defenders. Mustapha Heron works well along the baseline by exploiting openings near the hoop. Together they can fluster defenses and get to the line. The Sun Devils haven’t shown the ability to stop those drives without fouling, which can create extra opportunities at the line.

Get up and down
When the pace quickens, St. John’s wins. The Johnnies play efficiently in an up-tempo, up-and-down game. The Sun Devils present such an opportunity, averaging shots early in possessions and favoring a similar style. LJ Figueroa and Big East Defender of the Year Justin Simon create chances on loose balls and score often in transition. Forcing an ASU team that holds onto the ball into turnovers could be the difference.

“This is what we work all year for and we finally have an opportunity to take advantage of it,” Ponds said.

The NC Central Eagles come into the tournament as a #16 seed, representing the MEAC after finishing the regular season with an 18-15 overall record which includes some tough non-conference opposition like Clemson, Cincinnati, Saint Louis and Bowling Green just to name a few. The Eagles ended the conference portion of their schedule with a 10-6 record, which gave the Eagles the #3 seed in the conference tournament where NC Central knocked off Delaware State in the quarterfinals and North Carolina A&T in the semis before defeating top-seeded Norfolk State by a final score of 50-47 to punch their ticket to the big dance. Raesean Davis leads the Eagles in scoring and rebounding with 14.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game while Randy Miller Jr. is 2nd in scoring with 13.2 points per game and Jibri Blount is 3rd with 10.5 points per game. As a team, NC Central is averaging 71.4 points per game on 45.6% shooting from the field, 31.5% from behind the arc and 71.5% from the foul line this season.

The North Dakota State Bison come into the conference tournament as a #16 seed as well, finishing the year at 18-15, representing the Summit League after a non-conference schedule that boasted losses to Iowa State, Gonzaga, Drake and East Tennessee State to name a few. The Bison finished conference play 9-7, ending up with the #4 seed, defeating Oral Roberts and Western Illinois in the quarters and semis before taking down Omaha in the championship game by a final score of 73-63. Vinnie Shahid led North Dakota State in scoring with 12.8 points per game as well as a team-high 2.7 assists per game while Tyson Ward came 2nd in scoring and tops in rebounding with 12.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season. As a team, North Dakota State is averaging 73.2 points per game on 45.6% shooting from the field, 36.6% from behind the arc and 77.4% from the foul line this season.

Sports Chat Place Premium

NC Central is 7-1-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 neutral site games while the under is 12-5 in their last 17 non-conference games. North Dakota State is 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall and 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 neutral site games.

This should be a very entertaining and close game, and if that’s the case, it’s usually wise to have the better free throw shooting team on your side. However, North Dakota State is only outscoring their opponents by a single point per game this season. NC Central is the better defensive team, and you know that the Eagles will want to set up an all-Durham matchup with Duke in the first round if they can get the chance. I’ll take a shot with NC Central and the points here.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Stephen M. Ross swears he is not embroiled in a third-set tiebreaker with Larry Ellison, the billionaire co-founder of Oracle who bought the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif., a decade ago and transformed it into a tony desert party for tennis players and fans.

Still, when the moved and improved Miami Open begins this week at Hard Rock Stadium, home of Ross’s Miami Dolphins, it will not be hard to imagine Ross, a billionaire real estate developer, keeping a tiny scorecard in his back pocket.“Larry’s done a great job,” Ross said. “He set the bar high, and it’s all great for tennis. But for us, it’s more natural not to compete, or at least to do so in our own way.”

Ross, who bought the Dolphins in 2008 and spent $550 million renovating the stadium, stepped in when IMG, which owns the Miami Open, found itself at an impasse with a Key Biscayne resident who controlled the land where the tournament had been played since 1987.

 

That man, Bruce Matheson, refused to allow $50 million worth of renovations to the Crandon Park site, and his prolonged lawsuits convinced the tournament that it was time to go.

Rather than see the tournament — and its hundreds of millions in local revenue — uprooted from South Florida to Orlando or China, Ross decided to partner with IMG and move the tournament about 20 miles northwest to his football stadium. He spent an additional $72 million to transform it into a state-of-the-art tennis venue.You have 2 free articles remaining.Subscribe to The TimesThe move wasn’t well received by everyone.

“Key Biscayne had a very intimate setting, and you can’t beat the drive over the Rickenbacker Causeway, with blue water on both sides of you,” said John Isner, the defending Miami Open champion. “We had a lot of history in that place, and that stadium court will always be very special to me.”

At the new site, a temporary main court was erected on the football field, with half of the seats were blocked off by screens. A 5,191-seat grandstand court, two other show courts and eight additional match courts — all permanent — were built on top of parking lots.

On a recent tour, those lots were indiscernible behind purple flowers, artificial grass, 35-foot mature palm trees costing $35,000 a pop, and a giant fountain that guards one of the many entrances to the stadium. There is also a 40-by-90-foot video screen, the largest in tennis, just outside the stadium in a spot modeled after Wimbledon’s Henman Hill, minus the grass.

Editors’ PicksAndy Cohen Is Tired of Being ‘Dad Shamed’ by ‘Momsplainers’How Do You Know When It’s Time to Break Up?Hard Rock Stadium Executive Chef Dayanny De La Cruz is going all out for the Miami Open. So much of her year is spent preparing food on an afternoon-by-afternoon basis for events like NFL games or concerts. But the two-week tennis tournament, which begins Monday, offers plenty of canvas for culinary exploration.

“It’s extremely exciting,” De La Cruz said. “One of the things about the Miami Open is it’s a new view at this stadium. It’s a different beast, with different demographics, and it’s stretched out a lot.”

With a spread-out crowd and plenty of long days, De La Cruz said it was important to foster a neighborhood atmosphere of a culinary compound with plenty of options for the fans.“You have to think more diverse meals,” she said. “You have to have variety. The fans are here for 12 hours. We’ve made it sort of interactive to keep it interesting.”

READ MORE: Executives Outline Predictions for Arena and Stadium Concessions in 2019“Interesting” has never been a problem for De La Cruz, who has prioritized making the venue’s concessions program more diverse to coincide with the growing trends in venue concession options. For the Miami Open, De La Cruz spent two months working diligently to craft a new menu with items ranging from a watermelon and tomatillo salad to the mojo pork belly masitas to one of her favorites, the Cubano sausage. Then she brought in a bevy of Miami restaurants to complement it, including SuViche, Novecento, Casa Tea Cucina, Bourbon Steak by Michael Mina and Kiki on the River.

The change recalls the United States Open’s move from the charming but outgrown West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills in 1978 to the more functional, if less romantic, U.S.T.A. Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in nearby Flushing Meadows. It took a while to get used to the new digs, but no one would ever want to go back to the old ones.

“This place has a much larger footprint, so we can do more things,” said Tom Garfinkel, the Dolphins’ chief executive. “We are giving people an unprecedented luxury experience in tennis, just like the N.F.L.”

Tournament organizers did not take the word “luxury” lightly. The stadium court — painted in colors called Oasis Blue and Biscayne Blue — seats 13,800, the same as the main court in Key Biscayne. But this court features 4,738 premium seats, many that resemble Barcaloungers, with individual television screens. These seats range in price from $50,000 to $70,000 for the two-week tournament. Some are right on the court.

Premium-seat packages, most of which were sold out two months before the start of the tournament, include private dining rooms. Some suites have seats made out of Ferrari leather. For a privileged 1,000 visitors, there is a dedicated entrance from a private parking lot, in which spectators pass through a tent lined with art, including works by Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol that can be purchased for upward of $1 million.

Ticket prices at every level have increased by up to 40 percent over last year, though several thousand grounds passes are available for as little as $15 each day. Sales by the end of last month were up 25 percent, thanks, in part, to Dolphins season-ticket holders who have been cajoled into watching tennis.

“There’s a bit of a challenge in giving people the confidence that this really is for the best,” said James Blake, the tournament director.Marc Stein’s NewsletterMarc Stein has covered Jordan. He’s covered Kobe. And LeBron vs. the Warriors. Go behind the N.B.A.’s curtain with the league’s foremost expert.

Ross helped choose everything on the site: the flowers, the gigantic paintings that line the stadium corridors, the tiles on the bathroom walls.

“I had a picture in my head of what I wanted this to look like, the same way I do my real estate deals,” said Ross, who is also behind Manhattan’s Hudson Yards project. “It’s all in the details. Little things matter. People notice, and they’re watching for those details.”

The number of practice courts, many with spectator seating, have doubled from those at Key Biscayne, to 18. But unlike in Key Biscayne, those courts will not be turned over for the public to play on after the tournament ends.

The players, at least, should be happy. Their amenities have been enhanced, with dining areas and gym spaces tripling in size. The top eight seeds in the men’s and women’s singles draws, as well as all former champions, will be given private suites to be used by their entourages.

But organizers see the event as more than a tennis tournament. The grounds will open at least two hours before play begins each day to encourage people to come early to eat, shop and listen to concerts by local musicians.

“What we wanted was a venue that would allow us the freedom and flexibility to grow and innovate the event,” said Mark Shapiro, president of Endeavor, IMG’s parent company. “Key Biscayne was lovely, but we simply outgrew it. What we’ve got now is going to be supernatural, like walking through a Lollapalooza, and a tennis tournament grew out of it. Forget becoming the fifth major, we’re the new U.S. Open.”

In March last year, Nicola became the first player of his generation with Masters 1000 win when he defeated Darian King in Miami but his progress was halted three weeks later when he suffered a nasty foot injury (broken toe) at Barletta Challenger that forced him to retire and miss a chance to make the main draw debut in Barcelona and Madrid where he previously received wild cards.

Working on his comeback, Nicola returned two months later and he had to start all over again, barely staying inside the top-400 and seeking his form on the Challenger Tour. The youngster struggled to regain the momentum and confidence, suffering many losses before reaching the final in Canberra that boosted his ranking and allowed him to finish inside the top-250.

After a much-needed rest, Kuhn started to work on his off-season (he trained with Marco Cecchinato and Roberto Bautista Agut) and he is ready to chase the place in the top-100 in 2019 if he stays healthy, already proving his skills on every surface before that injury.

In addition, Nicola will hit the tennis court in the new season with the new racquet, signing a deal with Head Tennis and joining their big tennis family that includes Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic, Andy Murray, Maria Sharapova and Sloane Stephens. Nicola said he is thrilled to become a part of this big tennis family and he can’t wait to compete again and seek his dreams after a rough year he had left behind him.

Mayer was rock solid in his games, fending off all four break points he faced and dominating on the return as well, creating eight break points and converting four to seal the deal in style and without wasting too much energy.

Florian saved two break points in the second game and everything was much easier for him from that point, losing just two points on serve by the end of the set and converting his fourth break point in game seven after a beautiful volley winner to move in front.

The more experienced player finished the set with four winners in game 10 and he made a great move towards the win with a break at the start of the second set. Mayer earned another break in game three with a return winner and he clinched the win with another return winner in game seven for the place in the last 16.

The 17-year-old Rudolf Molleker has won his first Challenger title in Heilbronn in May and after an early exit at Roland Garros in junior singles he is back on the winning way after ousting Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4 6-7 6-3 in an hour and 54 minutes for his first ATP win. Molleker is only the third player born in 2000 with an ATP win after Felix Auger-Aliassime and Nicola Kuhn and he delivered it after a great serving display, firing 26 aces and facing only three break points.

Struff was there to fight until the very end, converting one of those chances on the return but he fell short in the end, getting broken three times from six opportunities he gave to Rudolf and winning six points less than his young compatriot.

Jan-Lennard saved a break point in game five with a service winner but Rudolf grabbed a break in game nine and the opening set was on his tally after three service winners in game 10. Struff created a 3-1 gap in set number two but his advantage was not to stay for too long, losing serve in the following game when his forehand landed long.

Both players held with ease in the last six games to set up a tie break and it was decided with a mini-break in the third point for Struff after a solid forehand attack. A service winner in the 12th point gave the set to Struff and the match went into a decider and possibly to another tie break in the way they served.

Molleker saved a break point at the start of the final set and he earned the crucial break in game four that pushed him 3-1 ahead, confirming his break with a hold after a deuce a few minutes later. Serving for the match in game nine, a teenager hit three service winners for three match points, and he fired a backhand cross court winner to emerge as a winner and notch his first success on the Tour.

Alexander Zverev shocked Novak Djokovic to win his maiden ATP Finals title in dominant fashion at London’s O2 Arena.The German, the youngest finalist in nine years at just 21, showed immense confidence in a high-quality final as he dispatched the 14-time Grand Slam champion 6-4, 6-3.

The victory marks a big moment in the career of Zverev as he finally delivered on the promise that has seen him win three Masters titles and become the shining light of a ‘next generation’ of up-and-coming tennis stars looking to upset the established order.

The victory marks a big moment in the career of Zverev as he finally delivered on the promise that has seen him win three Masters titles and become the shining light of a ‘next generation’ of up-and-coming tennis stars looking to upset the established order.In a hugely entertaining first set both players showed the excellence that had brought them to this final stage after impressive seasons.

In the first set Zverev offered up fearless tennis, staying solid behind his huge serve, crushing down big groundstroke winners and taking on Djokovic at the net with a series of drive volleys.

The Serb barely made an error early on and defended manfully to get the better of the long rallies, but the German world No. 4’s confidence was undiminished.He finally struck at 4-4, profiting from a pair of uncharacteristic errors on the suddenly brittle Djokovic forehand to earn the break of serve.

It was the first time the world No. 1 had been broken all week and he was unable to bounce back as Zverev smashed down three massive aces, among 18 of 21 points he won on serve, to take the first set.
