Durant, Warriors storm back to take Game 3 from Cavs

The Cavs a year ago became the first team in National Basketball Association history to come back from a 3-1 deficit to steal the title against 2015 winners Golden State, but with Kevin Durant on their side this season and no victories to Cleveland's name at home or away, the odds this time look all the more insurmountable.

Wawrinka oldest French Open semi-finalist in 32 years

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic can set up a semifinal showdown with victories. Swiss third seed Wawrinka , the 2015 title victor, has not lost a set on his way to a third successive semi-final in Paris .
