Sports News, Match, Scores Today August 12, 2019: Andy Murray to make singles comeback in Cincinnati

Blockbuster Sunday saw India defeating West Indies by 59 runs (DLS method) in the second ODI of their three-match series at the Queen’s Park Oval, in Port of Spain, Trinidad. But the match that took centre stage on Sunday was Manchester United’s stunning 4-0 win against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea at the Old Trafford.

Monday will witness no cricket or football action. Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Masters is underway and Andy Murray is all set to make his singles return. A couple of Pro Kabaddi League fixtures will also be up for grabs.

Murray will be playing his first singles match since his hip surgery six months ago. “I have zero pain,” said Murray ahead of his clash against his first-round match against Richard Gasquet. “I’m not expecting to be moving as well as I used to but I still think I can probably move better than I am just now. But that will take time. I started playing singles again only a couple of weeks ago.”

Rafael Nadal defeated Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 6-0 in just 70 minutes at the IGA Stadium in Montreal on Monday to bag his fifth Rogers Cup title. The trophy is his 83rd career singles title and third for the year after French Open and Rome Masters. He also extended his record for Masters 1000 titles to 35, two more than World No.1 Novak Djokovic. “I played a solid match, my best match of the week so far without a doubt,” Nadal said. “I did a lot of things well — changing directions, changing rhythms.”
