it would be a shame. Rafael Nadal (36) has not played since July 8 and his package in Wimbledon just before the semi-final that awaited him against the Australian Nick Kyrgios due to an injury (tear) to the abdominals. However, his comeback on the courts since this stopping in London when he remained on twelve victories in rank, the Mallorcan could celebrate him in the most beautiful ways. Indeed, if the one who won Roland-Garros last June for the 14th time in his career and is now at 22 coronations in Grand Chelem is essential in Cincinnati, where he will find the competition this week, he could find the throne world number 1, two and a half years (January 2020) after his last appearance in the chair of best player on the circuit of the moment. In the event of a new success in Ohio, where he had already been titled in 2013, Nadal, third in the ranking on Monday, could dislodge Daniil Medvedev from the summits.
Astros acquire Trey Mancini in three-team trade
The Houston Astros have landed the offensive upgrade they’d been seeking, acquiring first baseman Trey Mancini from the Orioles as part of a three-team trade.

If the latter stops before the quarter -finals and his rival goes to the end, it is indeed the manacor bull that we would find on Monday at the controls of the ranking. A double blow on which Nadal would not spit, even if the latter is far from focusing for the moment on this possibility of stretching all its competitors from above again. "The main thing is to stay healthy and participate in the tournaments I want to compete. I will not play more than what I consider well for my body," said the protégé of Carlos Moya, admitting in particular that a Return to first place would be "a lot" for him. "I did not think it would happen again," added Nadal, who would be the first surprised to resettle in the throne of the world number 1 at this time of his career.
Serena draws US Open crowd; Nadal eyes No. 1; Osaka anxious .
NEW YORK (AP) — Serena Williams rose from her sideline seat after a break during a training session inside Arthur Ashe Stadium on Saturday, and as she walked to the baseline at the end of the court covered by shade on a steamy morning, a few voices from the stands called out in unison, “Serena, we love you!” About to hit some serves in preparation for the first round of the U.S. Open on Monday night — and what could wind up being the last singles match of her career — the 23-time Grand Slam champion did not break stride, although she did turn her head in the fans’ direction, acknowledging the sentiment with a smile.
