French Cup, Formula 1, Madrid Masters 1000, NBA, Tour of Italy, Ligue 1: The set for Sunday, May 8

What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Football – Coupe de France: Nantes at its best

It is true, the current FC Nantes is no longer really the same one that dominated French football in the early 2000s. To the intoxication of a title. On Saturday night, his team beat Nice (1-0) in the Coupe de France final, thanks to a Ludovic Blas penalty early in the second half. Which also caused scenes of joy within a squad that had saved its place in Ligue 1 in extremis a year earlier.

2. Tennis – Masters 1000 Madrid: Zverev back in the final

Alexander Zverev lives again in Madrid. With little success since the start of the season, the German qualified for the Spanish Masters 1000 final by defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas on Saturday night. A victory obtained in three sets (6-4, 3-6, 6-2) and that logically rewards the 3rd player in the world, who will thus be able to defend his title against Carlos Alcaraz this Sunday.

3. Formula 1 – Miami Grand Prix: Leclerc and Ferrari at the party

For the third time this season, Charles Leclerc will start from pole position in a Grand Prix. The Monegasque driver set the fastest qualifying time at the new Miami circuit on Saturday night. He was ahead of his teammate Carlos Sainz, who allows Ferrari to have both of its cars in the front row. The Red Bulls of Max Verstappen (3rd) and Sergio Pérez (4th) will be just behind. As for Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), he will start from 6th place.

1. Cycling – Tour of Italy: Hungarian last breakaway

The Magyar triptych of the Giro 2022 ends this Sunday, with a 201-kilometre stage between Kaposvar and Balatonfüred. The course will be flat, or nearly so, suggesting a massive sprint at the end. The opportunity for Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) and the other greats in the peloton to give a good explanation before joining Sicily.

2. Tennis – Masters 1000 Madrid: The phenomenon Alcaraz against the defender Zverev

But who will stop Carlos Alcaraz? After defeating Rafael Nadal on Friday (6-2, 1-6, 6-3), the Spanish prodigy offered himself Novak Djokovic’s hair after a dazzling half on Saturday (6-7, 7-5, 7-6) . If he wants to put a second Masters 1000 on his list without delay – he triumphed in Miami last March – the 19-year-old will have to topple third-ranked player in the world this time, Alexander Zverev. Such a tempting final to follow from 18:30 on Eurosport.
