7.13.15: Legendary

Happy Monday! Today we’re celebrating the Serena Slam — Serena Williams made history this weekend after winning her 6th Wimbledon and 4th straight major.

QUIPS FOR THIS WEEK

Tennis

As we mentioned above, Serena Williams is a living legend and won Wimbledon in the ladies’ tourney after defeating first-time finalist Garbiñe Muguruza. On the men’s side, #1 Novak Djokovic defeated a timeless  Roger Federer in 4 sets to win the the 2015 Wimbledon title.  Next up, the 2015 US Open begins in New York on August 31.

NBA

Remember that time we told you DeAndre Jordan was going to play for the Dallas Mavericks? Well, sometimes things change when it comes to free agency! After a change of heart and a very interesting day on Twitter, DeAndre decided to go back to the LA Clippers.

In other news, LeBron James signed a 2 year deal (with a player option on the second year) to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The off-season has been nothing short of exciting , and with many teams reloading, next season is going to be awesome! Stay tuned.

MLB

Major League Baseball’s All-Star events kick off this week! Tune in tonight for the  Home-Run Derby and Tuesday, July 14th for the main event — the game (which features players from the American League vs. players from the National League)!
