Australian Casey Dellacqua’s Road to Recovery After Concussion Leads Her Home

16-01-2017

“Slava took a ball that I thought I might take,” Dellacqua said in Melbourne on Saturday, referring to Shvedova. “To cut a long story short, I ran backwards, fell over and knocked my head. “There were only a couple of points to finish the match, but I still have no recollection of that 10 minutes post-falling. The first thing that comes back to me is actually being in the hospital in Beijing.” What followed was... Read more

President Obama, a White Sox Fan, Welcomes the Cubs to the White House

16-01-2017

This past weekend, the Cubs were the hosts of a euphoric fan convention in downtown Chicago — how could it have been anything but? — and then flew East to meet the president, with a visit to the Walter Reed military hospital scheduled for later on Monday. That would add a somber note to the Cubs’ day, and there was a reflective moment, too, when Mr. Obama, noting the visit was taking place on Martin... Read more

Desired as Cornerstone, an Injured Jeremy Lin Is Watching the Nets Crumble

None of that happened. Instead, the Nets went into the game with a league-worst 8-31 record and a nine-game losing streak. Lin, who signed a three-year deal worth $36 million to join the Nets, was again unable to play, victimized by his second hamstring injury this season. Not surprisingly, the Nets went out and got walloped on Sunday, losing by 137-112 as the Rockets exposed many of the flaws that have bedeviled the Nets: poor... Read more

Hans Berliner, Master Chess Player and Programmer, Dies at 87

16-01-2017

Mr. Berliner, playing Black, essayed the Two Knights Defense, one of the more complicated openings. For many months, the players traded what would be described as haymakers in boxing, with each attacking, only to be met with a counterattack. After an incredible series of moves, the game wound down to a rook-and-pawn ending that Mr. Berliner won. Andy Soltis, a grandmaster of over-the-board (conventional) play, ranked the game No. 1 in his book “The 100... Read more

Credit Seth Wenig/Associated Press During their swoon over the last month, the Knicks have been grimly formulaic in their losing, with a lack of defense at the top of the list.

Asked on Monday by the on-court interviewer John Fitzgerald how Murray’s wife, Kim, was handling the transition to Lady Kim, Murray said, “No more swearing during my matches, for anyone who saw that a few years ago.” He was referring to Kim’s courtside language during his semifinal victory over Tomas Berdych at the 2015 Australian Open. Her tirade did not go unnoticed, and she returned for the final cheekily wearing a shirt that read, “... Read more

The Cavs, the Warriors and the Five Best N.B.A. Games This Week

16-01-2017

Russell Westbrook is averaging 30.8 points, 10.7 rebounds and 10.5 assists, a triple-double, per game this season. And commentators are beginning to wonder whether he can keep it up through April. The first, and last, player to average a triple-double over the course of a regular season was Oscar Robertson, in 1961-62 . If Westbrook matches that feat, it will be in a league bursting with superstars and top-tier defenders, many of whom see it... Read more
