So, although Anthony Crolla suffered a cracked skull and broken ankle when thieves - fleeing his neighbour's house in December - battered him with a concrete slab, it is impossible not to admire the Manchester fighter's sangfroid when he declared ahead of his world title challenge on Saturday night: "It was certainly the best shot I've ever taken."

Novak Djokovic Targets US Open to Complete Year After Wimbledon Triumph

sports.ndtv.com — The good news for Novak Djokovic is that, at 28 and with nine majors to his name, he is getting better.
