Pliskova takes over as world No. 1 following Halep's departure

  Pliskova takes over as world No. 1 following Halep's departure Simona Halep lost more than just a shot at the Wimbledon semis on Tuesday, as the Romanian's defeat to Johanna Konta means Karolina Pliskova is the new world No. 1. With a win over Konta, Halep would have wrestled the top ranking away from Angelique Kerber, but her loss means it will be Pliskova who will take top billing instead. Pliskova came to Wimbledon as one of the favorites following a grass-court win at Eastbourne right before the season's third grand slam. The 25-year-old would suffer a shocking second-round defeat to Magdalena Rybarikova, but still sit poised to take over the top ranking if other results fell in her favor.

Tiger Woods is no longer a top 1,000 golfer in the world. The 41-year-old dropped out of the top 1,000 in the Official World Golf Ranking released Monday, and is now ranked 1,005th, by far the worst standing of his career.

Jarring as the number can be, Woods' ranking is significantly hurt due to him spending nearly all of 2016 on the sidelines. The world ranking takes into account only the most recent two years worth of tournaments and performance value gained in those events depreciates over time, so his mostly absent 2016 looms large.

The “How I Met Your Mother” star slammed Woods’ for insulting a young boy labeled “gender creative” by his parents at the Orange County Pride Parade in California. His parents held up signs that read “I love my gender creative son!” and “My son wears dresses & makeup… Get over it!!” Harris, 44, called Woods “classless” and “ignorant” for his insensitive message. “This is sweet. Wait until this poor kid grows up, realizes what you’ve done, and stuffs both of you dismembered into a freezer in the garage,” Woods shared on Twitter. Harris, who is has two children with husband, David Burtka, fired back, noting he knew the family. “Utterly ignorant and classless, Mr. Woods,” the Emmy-winner wrote. “I'm friends with this family. You know not of what you speak, and should be ashamed of yourself.” Woods never responded to Harris’ remarks. The mother of the boy who was subjected to Woods’ comments, Lori Duron, runs a blog titled “Raising my Rainbow” about raising her son, C.J. The family’s trip to the pride parade was detailed in a post on June 26 titled “My Gender Creative Son’s First Pride.” She weighed in on Harris standing up for her son, calling him a “class act.” Duron’s Twitter account also retweeted a message from the Human Rights Campaign. “Thank you @ActuallyNPH for taking a stand against this vulgar & hateful statement,” the message read. “ All children should be accepted & loved for who they are.

Woods has currently amassed just 3.88 world ranking points, 3.48 of which come from his 15th-place finish (out of 17) at the Hero World Challenge in December, an event run by his foundation, which he hosts. Without December’s event, his ranking would be much worse. During the various peaks in his career, Woods was ranked No. 1 in the OWGR for a total of 683 weeks, more than twice as many weeks in that spot as the next highest contender, Greg Norman.
