• Former Crimson Tide tennis player Erin Routliffe and Alexa Guarachi advanced to the quarterfinals in the women’s doubles draw at Wimbledon. Routliffe and partner Alicja Rosolska secured a spot in the top eight after defeating Asia Muhammad and Ena Shibahara in straight sets, 6-4, 7-6 (3). Guarachi and Andreja Klepac won 6-3, 7-5 over Yang Zhaoxuan and Xu Yifan. Routliffe and Alicja Rosolska will play Desirae Krawczyk and Danielle Collins on Wednesday, while Guarachi and Klepac will play Zhang Shuai and Elise Merens.

• Reliever David Robertson, who has been the subject of trade rumors in Chicago, walked in the tying run in the ninth inning of the Cubs’ 5-2 extra-innings loss to the Brewers on Monday. Per the Chicago Sun-Times, it was his fourth blown save of the season, but he's also notched 11 saves while posting an impressive 1.95 ERA.
