2. Tennis – Wimbledon: And our French?

We had more difficult first rounds of the Grand Slam for the tricolors. On Monday night, Adrian Mannarino defeated Max Purcell in five sets, Caroline Garcia made the difference in the third set super tie-break against Yuriko Miyazaki and Dianne Parry dominated Kaia Kanepi.

3. Basketball – NBA: Irving stays with the Nets

Kyrie Irving has silenced a lot of rumors about him. The point guard was said to be unable to come to an agreement with the Brooklyn Nets regarding an extension and the departure. It is not so. He lifted his “player option” and therefore takes an additional year of contract with a salary of 37 million dollars. “Normal people make the world go round, but those who dare to be different lead us to tomorrow“, commented Irving. Just that.

4. Cycling – Tour de France: Julian Alaphilippe returns to his non-selection for the tour

In an interview at The Team, Julian Alaphilippe gave his feelings after his Quick-Steph Alpha Vinyl team chose to let him rest by removing him from the Grande Boucle. A decision that he digests. That his body accepts. His head, a little less.
