10:52 pm
are in bloom and the spectators are back on the course... it's been a tough first round for some golf�*s biggest names... five months ago american dustin johnson won his first green jacket with a record score of 20—under—par. there were moments of that magic today but even he struggled. only managing to finish on two over par. it was another disappointing opening round for rory mcilroy as well. still looking to complete a career grand slam he finished on four over. englishman lee westwood is a shot further back on five over par. he had seven bogeys in a round of 68. but while so many struggled, england'sjustin rose has had the round of the day. you can keep up to date with all the latest scores from augusta on the bbc sport website. now to football and it's been a busy night in the europa league with the first leg matches of all four quarterfinals. manchester united took a big step towards the final four with a 2—0 win over granada in spain. but in london, arsenal could only manage a draw after conceding a dramatic late equaliser against slavia prague.
10:53 pm
stuart pollitt watched the action. this was granada's first european quarter final. it was manchester united's 27th. enthusiasm versus experience in southern spain. the europa league may be a long and convoluted competition so united tried the direct route. a long ball forward finding marcus rashford. one wonderfulfirst touch later and 1—0. granada were no pushovers until late on when bruno fernandes was pushed over in the penalty area. the portuguese, just about, converting the resulting penalty. ole gunnar solskjaer�*s side with one foot in the semi—finals. arsenal's season rests on the europa league. they won 7—0 the last time they played slavia prague in europe. but the visitors were here to have a go.
10:54 pm
the gunners dominated but couldn't find the finishing touch. bukayo saka slotting wide, william hitting the woodwork, lacazette likewise. mikel arteta said this tournament was all or nothing and it looked like arsenal would get nothing until nicolas pepe's cool finish. relief but no time to relax as tomas holes powered a last minute header past bernd leno. arsenal's hopes well and truly checked ahead of the second leg in prague. sp, bbc news. staying with football, swansea city say they won't post anything on social media for the next seven days to take a stand against continuing online racist abuse. the championship club say the first team squad, academy professionals, their women's team and club staff will boycott all channels for the next week. three of their players were recently
10:55 pm
targeted with abuse online. we are not doing this and expecting everyone wonderful it was. if they do, been great because that means you've done a positive thing. the first and foremost, we are looking after our own and showing a bit of united front and what is going on in our circle, if you like. help fight the bigger issues and if you want to follow us, then great. but that's got to be down to the clubs in particular. rangers are also making a stand — they announced tonight that their players and staff will boycott social media for a week. the club say they want to underline "a lack of accountability and responsibility" from social media outlets. midfielder glen kamara and strikers alfredo morelos and kemar roofe have all been targeted. now it's been a great day for sir alex ferguson —
10:56 pm
not only did manchester united win — but the former manager had a share in each of the first three winners at the grand national festival at aintree. all eyes were on the two time national winner tiger roll in the betway bowl chase, but he could only finish a very distant fourth as, clan des obeaux brought up the hat—trick for ferguson, ridden by harry cobden and trained by paul nicholls — he came home 26 lengths clear. sir alex says it's the best day's racing he's had since getting involved in the sport 20 years ago. i about that. those are his words not mine. yet, it was a great performance. ahead of the tub from one of better performances and likely done the last two years and keeping it fresh. the french open will start a week later than scheduled, it will run from the 30th may
10:57 pm
to the 13th ofjune. tournament organisers at roland garros say they want the largest number of fans to be able to attend, and with france in a third national lockdown, moving the championships will give them the best possible chance. now this will impact on the grass court season in the build up to wimbledon. the lta say they are looking at the implications for their events and might make changes to the calendar as well. meanwhile there was a shock defeat for british number one dan evans in the last 16 of the sardinia open. evans had four match points, after coming from a set down, but couldn't take any of them. he eventually lost in a third set tie break to world number 90 lorenzo musetti of italy. and of course you can get more on all of those stories on the bbc sport website but that's all the sport for now. have a very good night.
