The Lightning, who lead the best-of-seven final 3-2, will have a chance on Monday to clinch the franchise's second Stanley Cup when they face off against the Dallas Stars in Game Six in Edmonton, Alberta, one of two COVID-19 bubbles used by the National Hockey League for the postseason.

Catlin, who won his maiden tour title at the Andalucia Masters earlier this month, carded three birdies in his final four holes in favourable scoring conditions at Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort in Ballymena, Northern Ireland. 49ers lose TE Reed, CB Moseley to injury vs. Giants

San Francisco 49ers tight end Jordan Reed and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley were ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the New York Giants after sustaining injuries in the first half. Reed suffered an apparent knee and ankle injury late in the first quarter while attempting to drag his feet along the back of the end zone on a throw from quarterback Nick Mullens. Reed promptly clutched at his left leg as he tumbled toward the ground. French Open gets off to chilly and damp start

Gone are the queues of spectators and gone is the sun as the French Open kicked off in underwhelming fashion on Sunday with persistent drizzle and a chill wind sweeping the almost-empty Roland Garros grounds. Play started at 1100 local time (0900 GMT) on court Philippe Chatrier under the new retractable roof for the first time and immediately served up a surprise as Belgian 11th seed David Goffin was crushed by Italian teenager Jannik Sinner in front of a few dozen spectators. Nadal gears up for 'most difficult' French Open title defence

Rafa Nadal will look to continue his Paris love affair when he begins the defence of his French Open title and his quest for a record-equalling 20th Grand Slam against Belarusian Egor Gerasimov on Monday. Nadal needs seven victories to bring up a century of wins at Roland Garros and collect a record-extending 13th title but the Spaniard knows he will face unprecedented tests over the next two weeks hitting an unfamiliar heavy ball in the biting cold. Zverev overcomes slow start to reach second round in Paris

U.S. Open runner-up Alexander Zverev overcame a slow start to launch his French Open challenge with a 7-5 6-2 6-4 victory over Austrian Dennis Novak on Sunday. U.S. Open runner-up Zverev, who had not played on clay since last year, trailed 4-1 in the opening set before he turned the screw on Court Philippe Chatrier, whose roof remained open despite a light drizzle. Tough Gauff downs ninth seed Konta in Paris

American teenager Coco Gauff made an impressive return to the Grand Slam stage when she brushed aside last year's semi-finalist Johanna Konta 6-3 6-3 in her main draw debut at the French Open to advance into the second round on Sunday. Less than a month after a first-round exit at the U.S. Open, Gauff was all business on a floodlit Court Suzanne Lenglen in front of a dozen spectators in chilly Parisian weather.
