The judge has been praising each speaker and criticizing Nassar, whom she described as a "monster" who is "going to wither" like the wicked witch in "The Wizard of Oz".

Next up is in-form 2016 Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber , who beat Donna Vekic in two easy sets as she starts to rediscover her best again after a miserable past year. American Madison Keys , a U.S. Open finalist past year, took just 41 minutes to beat Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-0 6-1 in the second round. The assertions were a good deal harder to confirm than the score by which he beat the outclassed the American Donald Young on day two of an intriguing tournament: ...

If Barcelona win tonight away to Real Sociedad, then Madrid will be closer (17 points) to the relegation places than top spot (19 points) - which is categorically the most damning stat in this article.

The offensive coordinator is one of the hottest names out there and has been tied to the Colts previously , primarily due to the notion he could get Andrew Luck back on track - assuming Luck ever gets fully healthy again , of course.

This good news for the Falcons is that while the NFC playoff field is solid, there are no dominant teams. Atlanta has taken a bit of a hit this season after Kyle Shanahan bolted for San Francisco and as such the Falcons offense has looked pedestrian compared to the group that led to Matt Ryan winning the MVP award last season, and unless they can get a breakout effort from their pivot this could be a tough outing for them and a short lived NFC title defense .
