From Stan Wawrinka and Angelique Kerber's US Open wins, here are 9 highlights from your sporting weekend.

Cape Town - Chelsea will wait to discover the extent of the ankle injury sustained by John Terry in the 2-2 draw with Swansea on Sunday.

The 36-year-old centre-back got through the full 90 minutes after rolling his ankle late on in the tie, and received treatment on the field at the final whistle.

He left the Liberty Stadium on crutches, with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte explaining a full diagnosis would be revealed on Monday.

After the match, the Italian said: "I don't know the extent of the injury but tomorrow we will see the situation about his ankle. But he is a warrior and I am not worried."

Sky Sports pundit Alan Smith felt Terry merely tweaked his ankle and would not be out for long.

He said: "If it is long-term it's a blow. They've obviously got a couple of centre-halves with Kurt Zouma on the way back and, of course, David Luiz recently signed.

"Those little twisted ankles, they are painful at the time. I did it enough myself and they can calm down in 48 hours or so. They are heavily icing it, I imagine, and hopefully he won't be out for too long.

"He's got it heavily strapped but it's not in a boot which is a bit more of a serious sign. Hopefully it's just a little sprain and not something that's damaged the ligaments too much."
