The Weekly Sports Review

23rd to 29th May

The greatest tennis champ of all time?

In this edition we look at some of the greatest achievements of the previous week. We also highlight a selected number of events to look forward to over the next few days. We begin with USA's King Van Nostrand, who may arguably be the greatest tennis champion of all time. Of course the focus is on the ATP and WTA professional circuit and the big stars we read and hear about almost daily. For Van Nostrand a long-standing ambition recently became a reality. The 87-year-old tennis champion became the outright leader in seniors tennis competition by claiming his 43rd world title on home soil at the Boynton Beach Tennis Center in Florida. Van Nostrand is now World No.1 in the 85+ category, a dream he made known in 2021. Long may that still continue. 

Iga Swiatek is on an amazing run of form right now. The Polish star completed her fifth consecutive title by defending her Internazionali BNL d'Italia title last weekend in Rome. Novak Djokovic captured his record-extending 38th ATP Masters 1000 title at the same tournament. This all makes for an incredible Roland Garros to look forward to that begins in Paris tomorrow. Kenya's Irene Cheptai and Nicholas Kipkorir Kimeli both ran course records at the 10km Bengaluru 2022 last weekend. Their times were 30:35 and 27:38 respectively. The prestigious Sail Grand Prix opened the new season last weekend in Bermuda. Australia's Tom Slingsby claimed gold over Great Britain's Ben Ainslie and Canada's Phil Robertson. 

In race walking, Sweden's Perseus Karlstrom and China's Qieyang Shenjie captured respective victories at the first Gran Premio Internacional Madrid Marcha La Liga. For bowling fans, USA's Kyle Troup won the recent Professional Bowling Association Playoffs, earning himself $100k in the process. Eritrea's Biniam Girmay made history at the Giro d'Italia earlier in the week by becoming the first black African to win a Grand Tour stage. Sadly, Girmay had a freak accident during the post-race ceremony and had to withdraw from the race. Israel's Ashdod City hosted the International Physically Disabled Chess Association 21st World Championship with Andrei Obodchuk claiming the gold medal.

The Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas, recently hosted the Women's Rodeo World Championship. Hailey Kinsel won Barrel Racing, the Pro Team Roping was claimed by Kylie McLean and Megan Gunter, while Breakaway Roping was won by Martha Angelone. Korea's Woongtae Jun made history at the recent Modern Pentathlon World Cup by breaking two world records during an exception performance. Next weekend we get to see two of the Triple Crown of Motor Racing. Indianapolis currently hosts the Indy 500, while next Sunday Formula One presents the Monaco Grand Prix. The third motor race of the Triple Crown is 24 Hours of Le Mans. Today is the final day of the IBA Women's Boxing World Championship in Istanbul. Giro d'Italia concludes next weekend, including the Men's Ice Hockey World Championship in Finland. Everything appears to be on course for a Canada and Finland rematch of last year. Tomorrow we will find out who the PSA Squash World Champions are for 2022, while the PGA Championship also crowns the new champion. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
