As the opening major of the calendar heats up, it's increasingly likely this is the year that their dominance wanes -- in another next gen triumph, 21-year old American Frances Tiafoe played the match of his nascent career to oust 20th seed Grigor Dimitrov 7-5, 7-6(6), 6-7(1), 7-5 to secure his spot in the quarter-finals.

Despite never leading in regulation, the Rams' Greg Zuerlein hit a 57-yard field goal in overtime to advance to Super Bowl LIII with a 26-23 win. With the score tied 20-20 as regulation ticked away, what appeared to be a clear pass interference violation occured when Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman appeared to plow into Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis, making helmet-to-helmet contact, but no flag was thrown.
