  • Magician Federer pulls out the party tricks

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    By Toby Davis LONDON (Reuters) - It was not the first time Wimbledon had dissolved into a chorus 'oohs' and 'aahs' at the brilliance of Roger Federer but the Swiss ringmaster almost outdid himself when he flashed his racquet between his legs to lob Sam Querrey on Thursday. To Querrey's credit he made a fight of the early stages, before mentally ceding the contest as Federer took control. "You want to go over and give him a high five sometimes, but you can't do that," a bewildered Querrey told reporters. More »Magician Federer pulls out the party tricks

  • Germany says new reports of US spying harm security ties

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    By Michael Nienaber and Lesley Wroughton BERLIN/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Germany is taking seriously the latest reports about U.S. spying on senior government ministers and they are putting strains on vital security cooperation between the two countries, Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman said on Thursday. German media have reported that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) bugged several senior government members, including the economy and finance ministers, as well as Merkel. The reports are the latest twist in a long-running scandal triggered by revelations by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden of wide-ranging U.S. espionage spying on close allies.

  • Rosberg side by side with Hamilton at Silverstone

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    By Alan Baldwin SILVERSTONE, England (Reuters) - Mercedes team mates Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton have parked their motorhomes side by side in the British Grand Prix campsite and may well line up next to each other at both the start and finish on Sunday. "I have organised to put up a big fence in between, it's going up tonight," Rosberg told reporters on Thursday. If he wins, instead of home favourite and double world champion Hamilton, those who want the title battle to go down to the wire will also have more to celebrate than most of the expected 140,000-strong crowd.

  • Tennis-Qualifier Brown hammers Nadal out of Wimbledon

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    * German pulls off stunning victory * Nadal's dire Wimbledon run continues By Neil Maidment LONDON, July 2 (Reuters) - Two-times champion Rafa Nadal's appalling recent run at Wimbledon continued on Thursday as he crashed out in the second round after being out-muscled and out-thought in four sets by an inspired Dustin Brown of Germany. The Spaniard, who has slipped down the sport's pecking order and was seeded 10 after a year of injury and below-par performances, fell 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-4 as Brown, ranked 102 in the world, unleashed a barrage of thunderous serves and ground strokes, mixed with clever drop shots to seal a shock victory. Brown, who had beaten Nadal in the pair's only other meeting last year, looked to rush the Spaniard from the start, blasting winners at every opportunity and squeezing Nadal at the net to cut off his options in an unorthodox style that had the Wimbledon crowd in raptures.

  • Spanish federation chief to step down amid probe

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    Spanish tennis federation (RFET) president Jose Luis Escanuela opted to stand down on Thursday, one day after he was suspended for failing to cooperate in a probe into the organisation's finances. The decision, announced in a statement published in sports daily Marca, comes after Spain's disciplinary committee for sports (TAD) suspended Escanuela indefinitely over what the government sports council (CSD) called "a complete lack of collaboration" on requests for information. Escanuela was replaced later on Thursday by Fernando Fernandez-Ladreda, an RFET vice president who is a professor of accounting and a politician for Spain's ruling People's Party (PP) in the local administration in Oviedo.

  • Woods fires lowest round of season at Greenbrier Classic

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    (Reuters) - Tiger Woods capped his lowest PGA Tour round of the season with a trio of birdies to leave him four shots off the early lead at the Greenbrier Classic on Thursday. Woods, who has struggled for form all season, mixed seven birdies with a bogey and double-bogey for an opening-round four-under 66 on Greenbrier's Old White Course in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Coming off a missed cut at last month's U.S. Open, Woods hit 10 of 14 fairways and needed only 25 putts to sit four shots back of clubhouse leader Scott Langley.

  • Briton Ward lands biggest payday

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    By Pritha Sarkar LONDON (Reuters) - After four magical days at Wimbledon, British journeyman James Ward was guaranteed to pocket the biggest check of his career -- a princely sum of at least $120,000 for reaching the third round. Into third round of Wimbledon, I can't ask for anything more at the moment," said Ward, who is guaranteed to break into the world's top 100 after joining Andy Murray and Heather Watson in round three.  "It's (being in the top 100) something you work for throughout your whole career.  "Everyone's got bills to pay. I'm no different to anyone else in this tournament who is in this position. "But it's not really something I've thinking about. More worried about my ranking and achieving my goals than the prize money." After years of toiling in the lower-tier challenger circuit, playing on dusty courts in far-flung places such as South Korea, Japan, Australia, Uzbekistan -- to name just a few -- Ward is finally reaping the benefit of training with Murray.

  • Sublime Murray finds A-Game

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    By Pritha Sarkar LONDON (Reuters) - When a totally off-balance Andy Murray fashioned the most improbable lob winner to break Robin Haase in the first set on Thursday the Dutchman must have known that his 2015 Wimbledon journey was going to end sooner rather than later. The delectable lob that bounced off the Scot's racket gave him a 4-1 advantage and effectively broke Haase's spirit as the 2013 champion sprinkled his opponent's half of the court with 25 glorious winners to sprint to a 6-1 6-1 6-4 second-round win. Thursday's outing on a hot and humid Court One would have pleased his coach Amelie Mauresmo as it was a vast improvement on his underwhelming first-round win over Kazakh Mikhail Kukushkin in which he was broken three times in the second set.

  • We won’t man-mark Messi, Chile’s captain says

    Reuters - 3 hours ago

    Chile will not try to man-mark Argentina’s playmaker Lionel Messi out of the Copa America final but will concentrate on playing their own quick-fire passing game, captain and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo said on Thursday. Bravo knows Messi well from their past season together at Barcelona and acknowledged the Argentine would be difficult to stop on Saturday. If you look at what he’s done in his career, it’s been incredible, but we’re not going to put a man on him for the 90 minutes of the match,” Bravo told a news conference at Chile’s training camp in Santiago.
