Wimbledon 2015: Roger Federer too hot for Roberto Bautista Agut to handle — Even with 17 grand slam titles to his name, Roger Federer seems intent on making fresh statements. And the message that rang out loudly over Centre Court during his match against the 20th seed Roberto Bautista Agut, was that he is primed to contend for his eighth Wimbledon title.

Serena Williams beats sister Venus to reach Wimbledon 2015 quarter-finals — Serena Williams moved into the quarter-finals with a straight-sets victory over her sister Venus but was made to work far harder than the 6-4, 6-3 scoreline suggested. In the past the Williams sisters have been accused of not going for the jugular against each other. Not on this occasion.

Greg Rutherford ‘jumps like a doughnut’ at British Championships — Greg Rutherford claimed his fifth British championship despite "jumping like a doughnut" - and afterwards said the installation of a long jump pit in his back garden could help his bid for gold at the world championships.

Wimbledon 2015: Venus Williams’ enormous contribution merits long goodbye — During Wimbledon's first week you had to squeeze into the outside courts to catch repeat-viewings of what Venus Williams does best: rocket-launching that snorting, sliding serve before moving as softly as a dancer into position and killing the point with a wonderfully wicked groundstroke.

Jessica Ennis-Hill third in 100m hurdles but will delay decision on Beijing — Jessica Ennis-Hill believes her speed is returning after finishing third in the 100m hurdles final at the British Athletics Championships on Saturday but says she won't make her decision over whether to compete in the world championships until the last minute.

Tiffany Porter and Cindy Ofili secure places at World Championships — On American Independence Day, two accents straight out of Ypsilanti, Michigan, rang out loud and clear from the podium here. "It was really special," said Tiffany Porter, reflecting on her 100m hurdles victory over her sister Cindy Ofili, that secures them both a place in the British team for the World Championships in Beijing next month.

Dina Asher-Smith: ‘It’s weird I’m in the world top 20 for 100m and 200m’ — During the 11.02 seconds that passed between the smoky clap of the starter's pistol and Dina Asher-Smith smashing the British 100m record in Hengelo in May she took 47 steps. Away from the track, though, the 19-year-old's feet rarely leave the ground for that long.

Wimbledon 2015: Andreas Seppi shows quality but just needs to believe — Andreas Seppi showed enough zest and grit against the talented Croatian teenager Borna Coric to suggest he has the spirit to push Andy Murray when they meet in the third round on Saturday - but whether the 25th seed has the belief is another matter.

Mo Farah warned by former team-mate more Alberto Salazar revelations to come — Mo Farah has been warned by a tearful former team-mate that more revelations about Alberto Salazar are in the pipeline and he risks tarnishing his reputation if he stays with his coach.

The day Alberto Salazar sorted out my hay fever in Eugene — They call it simply TrackTown USA: a magical oasis where athletics is respected and revered, and given equal footing to other sports. Usually in track and field what appears to be magic often turns out to be anything but.
