LONDON --- Novak Djokovic's first appearance at Queen's Club in eight years was successful when he put away Australian qualifier John Millman 6-2, 6-1 on Tuesday.

Nadal wins 11th French Open title by beating Thiem in 3 sets

By HOWARD FENDRICH,  AP Tennis Writer PARIS (AP) — Rafael Nadal needed less than a set to take command of the French Open final and overcame a late problem with his racket-holding hand to earn a record-extending 11th championship at Roland Garros by beating Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 on Sunday. At 2-1 in the fourth set, Nadal stopped serving during a game because he couldn't straighten his left middle finger. At the following changeover, Nadal was given a salt pill by a doctor and had his left forearm massaged by a trainer. But Nadal's form never wavered, and soon enough he was celebrating his 17th Grand Slam title overall, second among men only to Roger Federer's 20. The victory also allowed the 32-year-old Spaniard to hold onto the No. 1 ranking. The No. 7-seeded Thiem, a 24-year-old from Austria, was appearing in a major final for the first time. Not much more of a daunting task than doing so against Nadal at the French Open, where he is now 11-0 in finals and 86-2 overall. If there were any reason for a bit of intrigue entering Sunday's match, it was this: Thiem is the only person to beat Nadal on red clay over the past two seasons, doing so at Rome in May 2017 and at Madrid last month. Taking on Nadal at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament is a whole other challenge. Thiem stayed with Nadal in the early going on a steamy afternoon. But from 4-all in the opening set, Nadal grabbed five games in a row and was in charge.  .....»»

Italy, where food is divine

  I have a confession to make: My sister and I are Cardinal Tagle "stalkers". I first heard about Cardinal Tagle in October 2012 when I went to the Vatican upon the invitation of Rep. Rachel del Mar to witness the canonization of St. Pedro Calungsod. A few days after the canonization, it was announced that the new Archbishop of Manila was Luis Antonio Tagle and while I did not know who he was at the time, Rep. del Mar's friend, Rome-based Filipino priest Fr. Bonifacio "Ted" Lopez, was over the moon. In 2015, I visited the Vatican again, this time with my sister, Goldee. Frustrated that we were not able to see Pope Francis up close when he visited Manila in January 20...Keep on reading: Italy, where food is divine.....»»
