SOUTH AFRICA’S captain says Australia’s cricketers can’t expect the Proteas to want to be mates with them. Australia v South Africa LIVE from 5.30pm (EST).

    SENNA did it. So did Fangio, Brabham and Schumacher. A third F1 win on bounce at Monza would put Daniel Ricciardo in rare company.

    BERNARD Tomic is through to round 2 of the US Open after a straight sets victory over Dustin Brown while Marinko Matosevic was unable to topple five-time champion Roger Federer.

    THE FFA Cup Round of 16 has thrown up some fantastic fixtures, none bigger than Sydney United's clash with A-League side Sydney FC.

    FORGET the Socceroos. There’s a team of rising Aussie basketball superstars we should all get behind this week. They might even beat the USA. Really.
