Defending champion Maria Sharapova reached the French Open second round on Monday but was jeered by fans after she refused to carry out an on-court TV interview. Second-seeded Sharapova defeated Estonian Kaia Kanepi 6-2, 6-4 to set up a clash against Russian Fed Cup teammate Vitalia Diatchenko. "I totally understand that everyone usually does the interviews and answers a few questions," said Sharapova, who was also champion in 2012 and runner-up in 2013.
Four-time NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James defended Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Matthew Dellavedova of Australia after cries of dirty play from the Atlanta Hawks over two dives for loose balls. James scored 37 points, grabbed 18 rebounds and added 13 assists to lead the Cavaliers over Atlanta 114-111 in over-time on Sunday, giving Cleveland a 3-0 edge in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference final. Dellavedova rolled onto the legs of Atlanta's Kyle Korver in the previous game as both were trying to grab a loose ball on the court, resulting in a right ankle sprain that has sidelined the Hawks' 3-point sharpshooter for the remainder of the playoffs.
