2. Basketball – NBA: Suns and Sixers delivered a gala match

The Suns, winners of the Sixers (114-104) in the blockbuster of the day, with a Devin Booker-Joel Embiid duel which burst the screen, have been faithful to their status as the best team in the League. Led by 15 lengths in the 2nd quarter, the Suns accelerated in the second half, their collective making the difference, since Booker and Embiid muzzled from a distance, the first finishing with 35 points, the second with 37 (15 rebounds, 3 interceptions, 2 blocks).

3. Tennis – Masters 1000 Miami: There are no more French people in Florida

No tricolor will see the knockout stages of the Miami Open this year.

4. Formula 1 – Saudi Arabia Grand Prix: Verstappen responds to Leclerc

What a Grand-Prix in Jeddah this Sunday! In the Saudi night, Max Verstappen launched his 2022 season at the wheel of his Red Bull, after a fierce fight with Charles Leclerc (Ferrari). The Dutchman had to wait until the 47th lap of the race (out of 50) to take the lead from the Monegasque, keeping it until the checkered flag. Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) completes the podium, ahead of the unfortunate Sergio Pérez, who started on pole but suffered racing incidents. Esteban Ocon (Alpine) is the first Frenchman (6th), ahead of Lewis Hamilton and his modest 10th place, which already put him behind in the general classification on the Leclerc-Verstappen duo. It’s not necessarily the duel we expected at the start of the year, but there is a duel at the top in Formula 1 this season!
