Kane rescues draw for England against Scotland in qualifying

No it isn't but the change of events is remarkable", he added. But with only a minute left of injury time captain Harry Kane saved England's unbeaten qualifying record with a cool finish as the game eneded 2-2. " Scotland is no easy place to come". "The first free-kick was careless, the second (given away) was a slip, so I am not sure there is a lot we could have done about that".

He would be a different player from that point on. He had defused Wawrinka's brutal, bludgeoning aggression with defence that had the crowd gasping. Murray would lean, or even lunge, and somehow put his racket strings on seemingly unreachable shots.

Nadal, meanwhile, easily brushed past Dominic Thiem . Late bloomer Wawrinka, 32, has won each of the three grand slam finals he has contested and possesses the kind of baseline firepower Nadal is yet to face so far in the past fortnight.



Wawrinka ready for Murray rematch

The 30-year-old Murray arrived at Roland Garros with genuine concerns over his form after a mediocre claycourt swing, but with coach Ivan Lendl watching over his shoulder he has rediscovered the winning mentality just in time. "He's played fantastic this tournament so far", Murray said of the 32-year-old, the oldest Roland Garros semi-finalist since Jimmy Connors in 1985.

England are traditionally not masters of the limited overs game but this time they have a different team with a whole lot of explosive players in their line-up and that makes them hot favourites for the tournament. "Our batting performance was probably par or below par, pretty average, so I thought the bowlers as a collective unit were brilliant, really". "We go into every game looking to win".



Pliskova in the semis

Myskina was seeded sixth, but there was little reason to believe she would become the first Russian woman to win a Grand Slam title: Her career record at Roland Garros was 1-4 entering the 2004 tournament. "It's a great way to celebrate my birthday". "So it's good that I could do that in the third set for every, every single ball". And she remains the only woman in the Open era to win Wimbledon playing two-fisted forehands and backhands.
