  3. Djokovic and Bedene level in Rome

    Bedene 3-4 Djokovic

    Djokovic is being made to work for this.

    Bedene holds his serve to make it 3-3, then pushes the world number two to deuce.

    The Serbian capitalises on an unforced error from Aljaz Bedene - who sends his forehand long - to take a slight lead.

    But Bedene is not going away. He sees off a service game to love.

    This looks like it could be a tight one.

  4. Gopperth and Launchbury on player prize list

    Rugby union


    Premiership table-toppers Wasps are represented by Jimmy Gopperth and Joe Launchbury on the shortlist for the Premiership player of the year award.

    Northampton number eight Louis Picamoles - who has been linked with a return to his homeland with Top 14 club Montpellier - and Saracens' player of the year Michael Rhodes are also included.

    Newcastle back row Mark Wilson and Exeter wing Olly Woodburn complete the six-man shortlist.

  5. Van Dijk heads list of Chelsea targets


    Virgil van Dijk

    Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk is a man in demand.

    The 25-year-old Netherlands international has been heavily linked with a move to either Manchester City or Liverpool and now it seems champions Chelsea have come to the party.

    The Independent says that Antonio Conte has identified Van Dijk as the man to strengthen his defence.

    Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is also mentioned as an attacking reinforcement.

  6. Djokovic leads in Rome

    *Bedene 2-3 Djokovic

    Novak Djokovic, after that slightly slow start, has found his rhythm and leads 3-2.

    The first two games went against serve but both players seem to have settled and it's back with serve.

  8. Bayern 'to sue' over Kimmich report



    There are transfer denials and there are transfer denials Bayern Munich style.

    Earlier today the Stuttgarter-Zeitung newspaper claimed that 22-year-old midfielder Joshua Kimmich was going to leave Bayern Munich for either Red Bull Leipzig or Manchester City as he was dissatisfied with the amount of time he was spending on the bench with Carlo Ancelotti in charge.

    Bayern Munich have been straight back at them. Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge called the report, "a monstrous lie" with a statement adding that the club was taking immediate legal action. 

  9. Djokovic breaks back

    Bedene 1-1 Djokovic

    But the Brit can't hold his serve.

    Djokovic turns on the aggression in the second game and strikes a powerful forehand winner to break back.

    Decent game so far.

    Peter Blow: Lucas Radebe. Leeds legend. Voluntarily renegotiated his contract on relegation to reduce his own wages.

    Colin Bundred: Alfie must be Jon Flanagan's dad! He might turn out to be a decent player, but legend??

    Jon Flanagan is really dividing opinion here.

    Yash, Manchester: Jon Flanagan could easily be a consistent starter next season with brilliant speed and awareness on the pitch. Next Liverpool Legend.

    Max: Big fan on Jon Flanagan myself. I personally think he's very underrated, shows so much passion.  

  11. Bedene breaks Djokovic

    Bedene 1-0 Djokovic

    And Aljaz Bedene is off to the perfect start in Rome.

    He breaks Novak Djokovic in the first game of the match.

    The Brit has a 100% record on break points so far - one from one - with his service game to come.

  12. Mazzarri keeping positive



    Walter Mazzarri

    Manager Walter Mazzarri says he is looking to the future with Watford despite reports that he could be out of a job at Vicarage Road.

    "There were some positives and some not so, but it was a good game and we are still evaluating for next season," said the 55-year-old Italian after a 4-3 defeat by Chelsea last night.

    "The most positive thing is that we had 40 points with six games remaining and many injuries."

    Watford are still five points short of the total amassed under Mazzarri's predecessor Quique Sanchez Flores last term.

  14. We don't feel like champions - Zidane



    Manager Zinedine Zidane says that his Real Madrid team need to keep focused on the prize as they close in on their first La Liga title since 2012.

    They need four points from trips to Celta Vigo and Malaga to be sure of beating Barcelona to trophy.

    "We don't feel like champions. We're not going to relax. We've not won anything yet," Zidane said.

    "It'll be difficult because Celta are a good team. We know that they're a good opponent and it'll be difficult, just like it was against Sevilla and will be against Malaga." 

     "I can assure you we need to maintain our focus."

  15. Dumoulin takes overall lead

    Giro d'Italia 2017 - Stage 10

    He comes home 49 seconds quicker than Team Sky's Geraint Thomas, who stays second in the time trial.  

    Dumoulin will take the stage win, but not only that, he moves into the overall lead and will take the pink jersey off Colombia's Nairo Quintana's back.  

  16. Making a name of his own



    Remember Romario, Bebeto and Mazinho rocking the cradle in celebration at the 1994 World Cup?

    Mattheus Oliveira, son of Bebeto and a 22-year-old midfielder, has signed from Estoril.

    He still has a bit of catching up to do with Mazinho's kids though.

    The former Vasco da Gama man is father to Bayern Munich metronome Thiago Alcantara and Barcelona midfielder Rafinha.

  17. Surface issues


    All does not seem well on one of the Rome Masters' second stages.

    It seems that the court surface was causing some problems during Alexander Zverev's three-set win over Kevin Anderson earlier today.
