The BBC's tennis correspondent Russell Fuller says Cibulkova will not be the only one enraged by the decision. Some players and tennis commentators have said it is unfair that women who go on maternity leave to have a baby lose their ranking, and therefore their seeding at big tournaments.
The lucky one goes through. They were doomed from the start following Mohamed Salah's Champions League final injury, and things just never happened for them against Uruguay and Russian Federation. The question for all four countries is whether they will win their group or advance as the runner-up. Saudi Arabia have finished bottom of their group at their past three World Cups .
They've been bad when they featured Messi and bad when making Messi's game secondary to the team. Musa's double for Leicester came in a pre-season friendly in Stockholm shortly after he had signed for the then English champions from CSKA Moscow in 2016.
South Korea coach Shin Tae-yong stuck to his attacking line up but shook up his midfield with Ju Se-jong and Moon Seon-min coming in for Park Joo-ho and Koo Ja-cheol, as the 2002 semifinalists seek to recover from their opening 1-0 loss to Sweden .

Roy struck his 82 runs off just 61 balls and Morgan needed just 30 balls to compile his 67. Buttler followed shortly after, having been sent in up the order at four, before Hales and Morgan added 124 runs in just 59 balls. Certainly there were aspects of this match - mostly some outrageous hitting - that created an entertaining and memorable spectacle.
It's been rumored - by Gary Payton no less - that LeBron's sons have been enrolled in a Los Angeles school, a sign pointing that James may be ready to sign with the Lakers. If more teams had the financial means to afford LeBron without gutting their roster (like, say, the Washington Wizards, New Orleans Pelicans, or Portland Trail Blazers), the Sixers wouldn't be as attractive as they're now made out to be.
Days ago, it seemed like San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich would be able to act as the ultimate fixer, easing tensions between the organization and one of the league's best players. Bordow, however, was adamant that Phoenix would not agree to such a deal, especially given that Leonard could leave the Suns as early as next summer.
Their players protested the charge and the subsequent penalty of a ball change and the award of five extra runs to the opposition by refusing to take the field at the start of the third day's play. So maybe Gould was just being over-cautious. The umpires took the call to change the ball on Saturday morning and that angered the Sri Lankan team.
Phil Mickelson returned to the 13th hole on Sunday at Shinnecock Hills, but this time with a much different outcome. It was a childish display from a five-time major victor celebrating his 48th birthday. While nothing will top what he did on Saturday, this is arguably just as odd of a move, calling even more attention to a situation that you'd think he'd want to let die down.
Commentating on the incident for Fox, former Ryder Cup captain Paul Azinger said: "That's the most out of character I have ever seen Phil". Mickelson went on to shoot a round of 81 and sits third last of those that made the halfway cut on 17-over par.
The match was evenly contested for most of the first half as both teams adopted a cautious approach to build-up play. Substitute Denis Cheryshev scored twice, with Yuri Gazinsky , Artem Dzyuba and Aleksandr Golovin also on target at a delirious Luzhniki Stadium.
It then hit a traffic sign and bystanders tried to wrestle the driver out of the taxi, but he broke their grip and ran away; it was not clear how he was finally detained.

Cecchinato, who upset Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals after winning two pulsating tiebreaks, rallied and even held three set points prior to Thiem triumphing 12-10. The No. 1-ranked Nadal compiled a 35-20 edge in winners while making only 19 unforced errors Friday.

Kerber eventually prevailed in a tiebreak, but Halep came out all guns blazing in the second, firing baseline bullets at her opponent, who tried to cling on against the onslaught.
She righted the ship in the playoff, which went to a sudden-death format after the two-hole aggregate start failed to produce a victor. Going to the 18th for the final playoff hole both Kim and Jutanugarn missed the green. "That back (nine) got me a lot", said Ariya, who won her first major at the 2016 Women's British Open.

But the victory and his return to the lineup left him in good spirits after the game. The Red Sox will have seven days to either trade or release the 34-year-old Ramirez . "He's been OK" at first base, said Dombrowski, but "he's not been Mitch Moreland , as far as that is concerned".

George Hill , Jordan Clarkson, J.R. Smith, and Jeff Green missed shot after shot, demoralizing the rest of the team . His first win in an elimination game came in a Game 6 against the Celtics in the second round 2008. Love and Tatum were away from the ball and didn't see each other until it was too late.

EDIT: Amazing what a season-ending injury and no World Cup will do to a memory.

City, with their disdain for the Financial Fair Play regulations, have delved ...
Playing second fiddle to the 33-year-old, Irving and James still formed an effective partnership as they helped the Cleveland side famously come back from 3-1 down to win 4-3 against the Golden State Warriors in 2016 to give the franchise their first-ever National Basketball Association championship.
