Lewis Hamilton: Celebrates on the podium after his maiden race win for Mercedes

Lewis Hamilton: Celebrates on the podium after his maiden race win for Mercedes

We look at the winners and losers after seven days that included the Hungarian GP, the Challenge Cup semi-finals and the build-up to the third Ashes Test.

Good Week

Lewis Hamilton

The Mercedes driver was finally able to convert pole position on the grid into a race win as he comfortably held off Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel to take the chequered flag at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

After making the podium just once from three previous pole positions this year, the former McLaren man made no mistake this time to claim his first victory for his new team.

And Hamilton believes the result at Hungaroring has put him back into the title mix with a car fast enough to challenge Vettel.

James Taylor

With England sweating over the fitness of Kevin Pietersen ahead of the third Ashes Test at Old Trafford, the Nottinghamshire batsman was given permission to play for Sussex in their match with Australia at Hove this week.

The match ended in a draw but Taylor passed his Ashes audition with flying colours as he made an unbeaten 121 for the hosts.

Taylor was named in England's 14-man squad for Manchester and, should Pietersen fail to recover from his calf injury, he will get another chance a year after playing two Tests against South Africa.

Phil Taylor

'The Power' showed he is not ready to give up his crown as the world's number one darts player any time soon as he saw off Adrian Lewis 18-13 to win his 14th World Matchplay title at Winter Gardens.

It was Taylor's sixth consecutive victory at the event and, despite being pushed hard throughout the week by the likes of Terry Jenkins and James Wade to reach the final, the 52-year-old always looked in control against Lewis, who himself had come through a couple of epic encounters with Andy Hamilton and Michael van Gerwen.

Trailing 6-4, the 14-time world champion reeled off six straight legs and from there the result was never in doubt.

Brandt Snedeker

The American held off a challenge from compatriot Dustin Johnson to triumph at the Canadian Open, his sixth PGA Tour title.

Snedeker shot a final round 70 to win the event by three strokes and claim the $1m prize.

Since 2011, only Tiger Woods has won more on the tour than the Ryder Cup player, for whom this was a second victory of the season following his win at Pebble Beach in February.

Bad Week

London Broncos

The Broncos' dreams of a Wembley final appearance were crushed in the most emphatic of fashions by Wigan Warriors as they ran in 12 tries to hammered the London side 70-0.

Whilst the Warriors will now face Hull FC in the Challenge Cup final, the manner of the semi-final defeat was such that Broncos' coach Tony Rea described it as his "biggest disappointment as a coach."

Bayern Munich

Pep Guardiola's first competitive game as Bayern manager ended in defeat as the Champions League winners lost 4-2 to Borussia Dortmund in the German Supercup.

Jurgen Klopp's side struck an early psychological blow as they aim to reclaim Bundesliga title from their Bavarian rivals, for whom Arjen Robben's double was merely consolation.

A brace from Marco Reus in addition to Ilkay Gundogan's effort and a Daniel van Buyten own goal indicated that Guardiola's men won't have it all their own way this term.

Roger Federer

The Swiss legend suffered his latest disappointment in recent months as he crashed out in the first round on home soil in Gstaad.

Having exited Wimbledon at the second round stage and lost in the semi-final in Hamburg in the last month, this was another setback for the 17 time grand slam champion.

Federer lost 6-3 6-4 to Germany's Daniel Brands and sited a back problem as a major reason for his loss, putting his preparation for next month's US Open into some doubt.

West Indies

The T20 world champions were beaten twice in as many days by Pakistan on home soil in the game's shortest format having had defeat in the ODI series confirmed by a four-wicket defeat to the tourists just days earlier.

A top order collapse in Sunday's second T20 clash meant that their run chase never really got going and West Iindies ultimately fell short of Pakistan's 135-7.

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
