Li advances to Australian Open semifinals

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Li Na has advanced to the Australian Open semifinals with a 7-5, 6-3 victory over fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, ending the Polish player's 13-match winning streak to start the year.

In a match featuring 10 breaks of serve - six by Li - the sixth-seeded Chinese player broke Radwanska's service in the sixth game of the second set without allowing her opponent a point.

Serving for the match, Li fended off two break points before prevailing in 1 hour, 42 minutes.

Li, a losing finalist here to Kim Clijsters in 2011 just before she clinched her only Grand Slam title at the French Open, will play the winner of Tuesday's later quarterfinal between Maria Sharapova and Ekaterina Makarova.

Radwanska won tournaments in Auckland and Sydney ahead of the Australian Open.

Terry McLaurin continues to dominate the Eagles with an electric 75-yard touchdown

In Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season, Terry McLaurin introduced himself to opposing defenses, specifically the Eagles secondary, as he racked up 125 yards and a touchdown on five receptions.

Since then, the rookie receiver has continued to showcase his talent, establishing himself as Washington's No. 1 target and a pass catcher that all teams should fear. Through incredible catches and strong runs after the receptions, he's shown he can do it all.

So with the Eagles coming to town in Week 15 for a divisional battle, what would he do for an encore? It didn't take long for Philadelphia to find out.

Catching a pass from Dwayne Haskins on a slant, McLaurin turned upfield, left the secondary in the dust and sprinted into the end zone for a 75-yard score to give Washington a 7-3 lead in the first half.

Not only did the touchdown show McLaurin's ability, but it also displayed the growing connection between him and Haskins. Teammates in college, the two are still continuing to get more comfortable with each other. Plays like that are a sign of things to come, something that will please Redskins fans and even get a smile out of their former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who was reportedly in attendance for Sunday's game.

If McLaurin is doing this in his rookie year, the Eagles are not going to enjoy the coming years.

There’s one team that could reportedly stop a Terrell Suggs return to Baltimore

There’s one team that could reportedly stop a Terrell Suggs return to Baltimore

According to a report from Ian Rapoport, there’s one team that could ruin a Terrell Suggs return to Baltimore

Rapoport reported on Sunday morning that the Tennessee Titans were one team that appears poised to claim the 37-year-old outside linebacker. 

The Titans entered Sunday at 8-5 and tied for the division lead in the AFC South. 

A connection for Suggs in Tennessee is Dean Pees, who was a linebackers coach for the Ravens from 2010 and 2011 before he became defensive coordinator, a role he held from 2012-2017. He became the Titans defensive coordinator in 2018.

The Ravens don’t have much power when it comes to bringing the franchise icon to Baltimore, as they are currently last on the waiver wire. 

Suggs will be on waivers until Monday at 4 p.m., where he’ll find out which team — if any — claimed the former Defensive Player of the Year. 

Adam Schefter previously reported that Suggs might not report to the team that claims him, should it not be the Ravens. 

Whatever the case is with Suggs, the resolution is coming by Monday evening.
