Rafael Nadal Ready To Return To Action After Injury Lay-Off

Funny! Nadal Jokingly Throws Shade At Federer With A Snide

"It's not great but, I mean, first match on clay, you know, I'm expecting (a) little soreness", Nishikori said.

Nadal will be going for his 11th Monte Carlo Masters title this week, and has not surprisingly been installed as [1.62] favourite.

The Serb had a small surgery on his right elbow to recover from an injury that he says has troubled him for two years now.

"But today, you know, (I'm) pain-free".

Accompanied by his former coach Marian Vajda in Monte Carlo, Djokovic will be looking to snap a three-match losing streak and capture a first match victory since January. "I missed him", Djokovic said, before cracking a smile.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Finale Recap
But, a swift kick, a tearful invocation of Carl's philosophy of peace and a precision dagger swipe to the throat felled Negan . If you knew exactly how The Walking Dead season 8 finale would play out, then there's a good chance you've read the comics.

"I played only with the shot clock in IPTL and it was only 20 seconds".

But tennis fans will be eyeing a fascinating quarter-final match-up between a revitalised Djokovic and the king of clay Nadal.

Ramos-Vinolas, who lost last year's final to Nadal, was leading by a set and a break at the time and went on to win 6-3, 6-3.

Nadal will open against either Slovenian Aljaz Bedene or a qualifier before a potential second round against Roger Federer's Miami conqueror Kokkinakis or Russian big hitter Khachanov.

He said, "He says he will love to play against me again in best-of-five sets on clay". "Playing well below the desired level, it wasn't easy for me to cope". "I was questioning which way I want to move ahead", he said. We just split in a very normal way.

Watchdog Confirms Skripals Poisoned, UK Says Kremlin Must Give Answers
The confirmation of the chemical's identity bolsters Britain's case that Russian Federation was behind the attack last month. They also called on United Kingdom officials to "urgently provide evidence" that Skripal was not deprived of her freedom.

Earlier on Monday, Japan's Kei Nishikori fought back from a set down to see off Czech 12th seed Tomas Berdych and reach the second round.

Nishikori, like Djokovic, needs time on court after only recently returning from a torn tendon in his right wrist.

Rafael Nadal will play his first match since the Australian Open, if you don't count the Davis Cup action. His serve motion seemed more relaxed and effective than it did in the US last month.

Novak Djokovic did not just come home on Monday; he came back to himself.

Other winners included Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain, Andrey Rublev of Russian Federation, and Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain.

Father throws baby daughter off roof during stand-off with police
Steven Pladl's bond conditions also prevented him from living in the North Carolina home he shared with his daughter. Thursday morning, he called his mom and told her he had just killed Katie and her adoptive father , Anthony Fusco.

2017 finalist Albert Ramos-Vinolas ousted a testy Jared Donaldson, Stefanos Tsitipas upended Denis Shapovalov 6-3, 6-4 and Andrey Rublev beat Robin Haase to set up a showdown tomorrow against Dominic Thiem. Donaldson ranted at the chair umpire over a line call and then squared up to him as he continued to argue. The American received a code violation.
