The Ashes 2023 AND WIMBLEDON

Harry Brook might have taken the crown as the new hero of Headingley after his 75 steered England towards a thrilling victory against Australia, but there were more twists to come before the home side kept the Ashes series alive.

Cricket matches in Leeds have a tendency to go down to the wire, and this was no exception. The hosts looked to be closing in on a memorable victory when Brook was caught out off Mitchell Starc for 75, and England still needing 21 to win.

Mark Wood and Chris Woakes then carried England over the line – Wood hit a six to leave England with 12 runs to get with three wickets left, and another four to take it into single figures.


British hopes at Wimbledon are over after Katie Boulter, pictured left,  was crushed by defending champion Elena Rybakina late in the night on Centre Court.

Boulter was the last British player standing in the singles after Andy Murray, Cameron Norrie and Liam Broady were knocked out on Friday but Rybakina produced a dominant performance to win 6-1 6-1 in just 56 minutes.

Murray questioned whether he has the motivation to return to Wimbledon next year after a heartbreaking five-set defeat to Stefanos Tsitisipas ended his hopes at the Championships.
