Cristiano Ronaldo may have stolen the backpage headlines but 18-year-old Emma Raducanu had newspaper editors scrambling around for a rewrite of their front pages!
The youngster stunned the tennis world by becoming the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam event, doing so without dropping a set – not bad for a rank outsider who was 400/1 to win the US Open pre-tournament! She ended a 44-year wait for a British woman to win a Grand Slam title and has been installed as 3/10 favourite to win the 2021 Sports Personality of the Year.
Back to the football and we flagged up SBK's huge 13/8 on Ronaldo grabbing a goal on his return to Old Trafford and he duly obliged on the stroke of half-time. The the 36-year-old striker added a second to make it a memorable homecoming in front of 76,000 fans who'd all come to see their prodigal son return.
United's win took them to the top of the table and Liverpool have the chance to join them with a win at Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa‘s side have yet to win this season and today could see them fail to win any of their first four top-flight matches in a season for the first time since 1958-59.
Liverpool are on a 13-match unbeaten league run and will be keen to get another win under their belt before a clash with AC Milan in midweek. The Reds are a best priced 3/4 at SBK to take all three points and should do so.
On paper, the Edinburgh Derby should be a cracker but it's a fixture that often fails to live up to expectations. Seldom has there been more at stake in a league match between Hearts and Hibs in recent years with both clubs vying to claim top spot in the Premiership on Sunday.
Man in the middle is Nick Walsh who has dished out three red cards in his eight games this season and he could be a busy man in the capital. With the likes on Haring, Halliday, Baningime, Gogic and Porteous there's no shortage of contenders for a card.
Over 4.5 cards could be a good bet at 5/6 or any pairing of the aforementioned contenders above on a BetBuilder would pay between around 5/1 to 10/1.

Sunday's Racing Tips
Rizzel has gone for a mixture of French and Irish racing, hopefully some better luck today after two runner-up finishes on Saturdays.
Golf – BMW PGA Championship Finale
It's all to play for on Sunday for The Caddy's headline tip, Christiaan Bezuidenhout who is just two strokes off the pace at the BMW PGA Championship at Wenworth.
Italian Francesco Laporta leads the way on -14, with England's Laurie Canter a shot behind. Then there's a group of four including the 27-year-old South African who was The Caddy's main selection at 30/1.
Good luck to everyone that's sitting on a betslip with Bezuidenhout's name on it.
