Former top-ranked women’s tennis player Caroline Wozniacki played her last tournament at the 2020 Australian Open, having announced in December 2019 the major would be her last. At the time, she spoke of goals away from the court – one being to start a family with her husband, former NBA player David Lee. The couple welcomed their first child on June 11, a daughter named Olivia. “Family of 3,” Wozniacki captioned the photo of her and Lee holding Olivia that she posted on her social media accounts.

Jordan Schultz: Asked Mark Cuban about the “bullshit” Luka report. His response, via text: “I listen to everyone. And I certainly listen to Luka. The whole idea that there is a shadow GM is ridiculous.”
Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving could miss time after suffering an ankle injury in Game 4 of his team’s second-round matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski provided an update Monday on KJZ: “I don’t think there’s a great expectation that he can turn this around and be ready for Game 5,” Wojnarowski reported.
He noted James Harden has made “progress” in his recovery from a hamstring injury, but he could also miss the game Tuesday. These injuries are a concern for a Brooklyn team that is in championship-or-bust mode. When one or both of the guards is out, it puts pressure on Kevin Durant to carry the team.
