- Ex-number ones Park, Tseng outshine jetlagged Ko
Former world number ones Park Inbee and Tseng Ya-ni outshone top-ranked Lydia Ko, 17, as they seized the joint lead on day one of the HSBC Women’s Champions on Thursday. Teenage sensation Ko blamed jetlag and fatigue as she carded four-under-par 68 to lie two shots off Park and Tseng's 66 at a sun-baked Sentosa Golf Course. She ended the day tied at the top of the leaderboard with Taiwan’s Tseng, who reigned as world number one for almost two years between 2011 and 2013 but is now ranked 67th. Ko started strongly but she looked to be struggling in temperatures which reached 35 degrees C (95 F), and also blamed jetlag after flying in from New Zealand.

Yet he still insisted in an exclusive interview that beating Mayweather would top all that.
- Vettel tips Hamilton, Rosberg for 2015 success
Mercedes pair Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are joint favourites for the Formula One world title as well as the season-opening Grand Prix in Melbourne, according to Ferrari star Sebastian Vettel. Ferrari are hoping to end years of mediocrity with Vettel and Finnish 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen, but the German believes Mercedes aces Hamilton and Rosberg are "the ones to beat". "It's 50-50 between them," Vettel told La Gazzetta dello Sport Thursday when asked who would be crowned world champion in 2015. Vettel joined Ferrari several months ago after five success-laden years with Red Bull, winning four consecutive titles from 2010 to 2013 as well as 38 Grand Prix.
