  • At Wimbeldon, Nadal, Sharapova lose; Serena leaves with illness Jul 1, 2014 5:48 PM
    Rafael Nadal ran out of comebacks at Wimbledon. Maria Sharapova, somehow, seemed on the verge of a turnaround despite a flurry of unforced errors, saving six match points before finally succumbing on the seventh with — what else? — a missed shot. And in the most striking sight of a memorable day of departures by past Wimbledon champions, Serena Williams couldn’t get the ball over the net in a doubles match with her sister Venus, stopping after three games because of what was called a viral illness.

  • Delle Donne, Catchings fight illness, injury Jun 27, 2014 7:09 PM
    Besides championships, fame and fortune, there’s probably nothing more important to elite athletes than their “own terms.” In other words, they want to dictate where they go, how long they stay, and when they finally say goodbye for good. No one wants to be pushed around, or worse yet, pushed out by someone or something else. Just ask Sky forward Elena Delle Donne, who’s got to be wondering if she will ultimately get to navigate her WNBA career on her terms, or if her Lyme Disease and its nasty flare-ups will have the final say. Meanwhile, Indiana Fever forward and former Chicago suburbanite Tamika Catchings has been fighting her own debilitating demon this season, which has led to some understandable questions about her “terms.”

  • Michelle Wie finally wins first major Jun 22, 2014 6:07 PM
    Michelle Wie finally delivered a performance worthy of the hype that has been heaped on her since she was a teenager. Wie bounced back from a late mistake at Pinehurst No. 2 to bury a 25-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole, sending the 24-year-old from Hawaii to her first major championship Sunday, a two-shot victory over Stacy Lewis in the U.S. Women’s Open. Wie closed with an even-par 70 and covered her mouth with her hand before thrusting both arms in the air. Lewis, the No. 1 player in women’s golf, made her work for it. She made eight birdies to match the best score of the tournament with a 66, and then was on the practice range preparing for a playoff when her caddie told her Wie had made the sharp-breaking birdie putt on the 17th. Lewis returned to the 18th green to hug the winner after other players doused Wie with champagne. What a journey for Wie, who now has four career victories — all in North America, the first on the U.S. mainland — and moved to the top of the LPGA money list after winning the biggest event in women’s golf. She has been one of the biggest stars in women’s golf since she was 13 and played in the final group of a major. Her popular soared along with criticism when she competed against the men on the PGA Tour while still in high school and talked about wanting to play in the Masters. That seems like a lifetime ago. The 6-foot Wie is all grown up, a Stanford graduate, popular among pros of both genders and now a major champion. “Oh my God, I can’t believe this is happening,” Wie said. It almost didn’t. Just like her so much of her life, the path included a sharp twist no one saw coming. Wie started the final round tied with Amy Yang, took the lead when Yang made double bogey on No. 2 and didn’t let anyone catch her the rest of the day. In trouble on the tough fourth hole, she got up-and-down from 135 yards with a shot into 3 feet. Right when Lewis was making a big run, Wie answered by ripping a drive on the shortened par-5 10th and hitting a cut 8-iron into 10 feet for eagle and a four-shot lead. She had not made a bogey since the first hole — and then it all nearly unraveled. From a fairway bunker on the 16th, holding a three-shot lead, she stayed aggressive and hit hybrid from the sand. After a three-minute search, the ball was found in a wiregrass bush that caused her to take a penalty drop behind her in the fairway. She chipped on to about 35 feet and rapped her bogey putt 5 feet past the hole. Miss it and she would be tied. Bent over in that table-top putting stance, she poured it in to avoid her first three-putt of the week. Smiling as she left the green, even though her lead was down to one, Wie hit 8-iron safely on the 17th green and holed the tough birdie putt. She pumped her fist, then slammed it twice in succession, a determination rarely seen when she was contending for majors nearly a decade ago as a teen prodigy. “Obviously, there are moments of doubt in there,” Wie said. “But obviously, I had so many people surrounding me. They never lost faith in me. That’s pushed me forward.” Wie finished at 2-under 278, the only player to beat par in the second week of championship golf at Pinehurst. Martin Kaymer won by eight shots last week at 9-under 271, the second-lowest score in U.S. Open history. Lewis got within one shot of the lead with a birdie on No. 13, and after two bogeys, kept her hopes alive by finishing with back-to-back birdies. “I knew I needed to get out early and post some numbers and make Michelle Wie earn it,” Lewis said. Stephanie Meadow of Northern Ireland made her pro debut by closing with a 69 to finish alone in third, earning $271,373. That should be enough to secure her LPGA Tour card for next season. Yang never recovered from her bad start and closed with a 74 to finish fourth. Juli Inkster never got going, either. The 53-year-old Hall of Famer, playing in her 35th and final U.S. Women’s Open, started four shots out of the lead and didn’t make a birdie until the eighth hole. She closed with a 75 and tied for 15th. She received a standing ovation walking up the 18th green, a remarkable career that includes three straight U.S. Amateur titles, two majors as a rookie, two daughters, and then seven more majors for the career Grand Slam. “They were so pulling for me, but it’s really hard to acknowledge them when you’re 5-over par and struggling,” Inkster said. “It was very nice, especially the reception on No. 1 tee and the reception on 18, and all around the golf course. It was great — very, very, very honored.” And she was thrilled for Wie, who has endured already so much for someone so young. Wie is the same age as Annika Sorenstam when the Swede won her first major.
