• Alexa Guarachi advanced to the third round of the women’s doubles at Wimbledon for the first time in her career. She and Andreja Klepac combined for a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Alizé Cornet and Diane Parry of France. Fellow former Crimson Tide player Erin Routliffe is also one win away from advancing to the quarterfinals. 

• After scoring just two points in his summer league debut on Saturday, Keon Ellis scored a team-high 17 points to lead Sacramento to a 81-64 win over Miami. He was 6-for-8 from the field, and grabbed five rebounds.
