In Brief: UCONN vs. ND WBB postponed; Nadal captures French Open
UCONN vs. ND WBB postponed
By The Associated Press
For the first time in seven years, the UConn and Notre Dame women’s basketball teams won’t play in the regular season.
The schools announced Monday that the game was postponed because the Irish need to restructure their schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The perennial powers and former conference rivals extended their series last year through the 2023-24 season. That has been pushed back a year, with UConn hosting games next season and in 2023-24. The Irish will host the games in the other two years.
Nadal captures French Open
PARIS (AP) — Rafael Nadal tied Roger Federer with 20 Grand Slam titles by producing a nearly perfect performance against Novak Djokovic in the French Open final.
Nadal equaled long-time rival Federer for the most major singles tennis championships won by a man and added to his own record at Roland Garros with No. 13 on the red clay, courtesy of a surprisingly dominant 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 victory over the No. 1-ranked Djokovic on Sunday.
