50mm 1.8 if your budget is low

50mm 1.2 if your budget is high :)

Any lens can do that.

But for the best, break the piggy bank, 85mm f/1.2 L. :)

I think you don't need a new lense at this moment. What you need is a good tutorial book to understand exposure and DOF (Depth of Field).

It is cheaper than buying a new lense

One single lens to do all 3 that you have mentioned ? Not available, regardless of maufacturer. For sports, you need telephoto. For portrait - focal length 50 mm - 100 mm ( some prefer slightly higher, don't be surprised professionals use even longer focal lenses )
For landscape - use wide angle. How to categorise the different focal lengths in different sections, hope this helps : http://www.canon.com.sg/index.cfm?fuseaction=digitalcamera&prod_type=lenses
