TENNISNEW YORK (AP) — Serena Williams was fined a Antworten

total of $17 Dan Marino Jersey ,000 for three code violations during her loss to Naomi Osaka in the U.S. Open final.On Sunday, a day after the match, the tournament referee’s office docked Williams $10,000 for “verbal abuse” of chair umpire Carlos Ramos, $4,000 for being warned for coaching, and $3,000 for breaking her racket.The money comes out of her prize money of $1.85 million as the runner-up to Osaka, whose 6-2, 6-4 victory on Saturday made her the first tennis player from Japan to win a Grand Slam singles titleIn the second set’s second game, Ramos warned Williams for getting coaching, which is against the rules in Grand Slam matches. She briefly disputed that ruling, saying cheating “is the one thing I’ve never done, ever” — although afterward, her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, acknowledged he was trying to send Williams a signal.A few games later, Williams received another warning, this time for smashing her racket, and that second violation automatically cost her a point, leading to more arguing. Eventually, Williams called Ramos “a thief,” drawing the third violation for “verbal abuse” — and costing her a game, putting Osaka ahead 5-3.Novak Djokovic defeated Juan Martin del Potro in the men’s final Sunday.PRO FOOTBALLDENVER (AP) — No longer welcome on an NFL sideline, Colin Kaepernick turned to social media to make his point on the NFL’s opening Sunday.In a tweet, Kaepernick gave a shout-out to “my brothers Bob Griese Jersey ,” Dolphins teammates Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, who were the only two players in the league to take a knee during the national anthem during Sunday’s games.“They have not backed down, even when attacked and intimidated,” Kaepernick said in the tweet, which was accompanied by a picture of the Dolphins kneeling before their game. “Love is at the root of our resistance.”It was Kaepernick, then with the 49ers, who sparked the anthem controversy by kneeling during the pregame ritual in 2016 — his way of protesting policy brutality and social injustice in America.Since opting out of his contract after that season, Kaepernick has been unable to land a contract on an NFL team and is suing the league for collusion.COLLEGE FOOTBALLAlabama is No. 1 at being No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll.The Crimson Tide made its 106th overall appearance at the top of the AP rankings, which started in 1936, passing Ohio State for the most by any school.Alabama received a season-high 54 first-place votes from the media panel in the Top 25 released Sunday , strengthening its hold on No. 1 over No. 2 Clemson. The Tigers, who started the season with 18 first-place votes, are down to six after hanging on for 28-26 victory at Texas A&M on Saturday night.No. 3 Georgia and No. 4 Ohio State held their spots and Oklahoma moved to No. 5, edging past No. 6 Wisconsin. The Badgers received a first-place vote.HOCKEYLAS VEGAS (AP) — Max Pacioretty is heading from the Original Six to the Sin City.The Vegas Golden Knights acquired the All-Star forward from the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday night for Tomas Tatar, prospect Nick Suzuki and a 2019 second-round pick.Vegas announced the deal, which sends the captain of one of hockey’s oldest franchises to a club coming off a run to the Stanley Cup Finals in its inaugural season.Pacioretty was named the Canadiens captain in 2015 and has played all 626 of his NHL games with Montreal. He recently denied reports that he had requested a trade. His name has been mentioned in trade speculation since last season’s trade deadline.The 29-year-old Pacioretty is entering the final season of a six-year deal that will pay him $4.5 million.SOCCERCULIACAN, Mexico (AP) — Diego Maradona, whose public battles with cocaine made him soccer’s poster child for the perils of substance abuse, is setting up camp in Mexico’s drug cartel heartland as the new coach of a second-tier team.Draped in official club gear, the Argentine soccer legend arrived this weekend in Culiacan, home turf of the Sinaloa Cartel, to take over the bottom-dwelling Dorados in what some describe as a publicity stunt for the team and a last-ditch effort to resurrect a career marred by drugs and antics.Maradona, 57, is a big fish for a little-known team founded just 15 years ago. He will reportedly earn $150,000 a month to coach a team where players complain of missed paychecks. A Dorados club representative could not be reached to confirm or deny the salary or missed payments.BASEBALLNEW YORK (AP) — Mets captain David Wright believes he will return to the New York Mets this season.The 35-year-old third baseman participated in a simulated game before Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies. He faced Anthony Swarzak and Tim Peterson and hit an opposite-field homer to right-center off Peterson for his only hit.Wright has not played in a major league game since May 27, 2016 Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , because of neck, back and shoulder injuries that required surgery.“I think so,” Wright said when asked if he thought the Mets would clear him to play this year. “The communication has been fantastic.” Rules changes aimed at safety have made kickoff returns almost a rarity in the NFL. Punters have gotten better each year at placing their kicks in spots that make it harder and harder to run back.Despite all that’s stacked up against them, there are still a few returners who can turn the sometimes mundane kicking plays into breathtaking ones.Miami’s Jakeem Grant beat out Kansas City‘s Tyreek Hill as the NFL’s top returner in 2018 in voting released Friday by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press.Grant received the honor the same week he was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a leg injury.“Grant has a touchdown on a punt return and a kickoff return. Such a distinction is almost extinct thanks to the rule changes,” said Dallas-based Schuyler Dixon.Grant has excelled as an all-around returner, ranking fourth in kick return average (29.7 yards) and first on punts (16.3) before his injury. Only six players have enough returns to qualify for the league leaders in both categories.The return game is growing less important by the year. Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of all kickoffs have resulted in touchbacks, the most in NFL history, and there have been fewer punt returns through 12 weeks than at any point since the merger. Grant has two of the league’s seven return touchdowns so far this season, the fewest through 12 weeks in a non-strike year and down from a high of 31 at this point just 11 years ago.Hill, who returned a punt for a score in Week 1, received five first-place votes to the four for Grant, even though he is not used on kicks and has just 17 punt returns as he plays a bigger role on offense.“Punts against the Chiefs are the wrong time for a bathroom break, with Hill and his five career return touchdowns in three NFL seasons waiting to catch them,” Minneapolis-based Dave Campbell said. “Wait until the commercial.”More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins new QB Josh Rosen bids goodbye to Arizona, congratulates Kyler MurrayDolphins bolster defense, provide Josh Rosen with another shot to be franchise QBDolphins acquire QB Josh Rosen from Cardinals for 62nd pick, 5th-rounder in 2020Dolphins go defense in 1st round, draft Clemson DT Christian Wilkins with 13th pickDolphins Draft Preview: Franchise QB likely out of reach, building foundation with new coach Brian Flores is focal pointIn all, 21 players received at least one vote, with only Grant, Hill, Andre Roberts of the Jets and New England’s Cordarrelle Patterson appearing on all 10 ballots.Like Grant, Roberts is one of the handful of players to excel at both kicks and punts and finished third, one spot ahead of Patterson.“Roberts has been one of the few bright spots this season for a struggling Jets team,” New York-based Dennis Waszak said. “He has re-established himself as a dangerous dual threat in the return game Kenny Stills Jersey , highlighted by a 78-yard punt return for a TD. Roberts also leads the NFL with three punt returns of 40 or more yards.”The other first-place vote went to Tennessee’s kick return specialist Darius Jennings, who ranked fifth overall and also has a return for a score.“Who? Yes, someone who came into the NFL as a rookie free agent out of Virginia and now is with his fourth different team is leading the league, averaging 34.8 yards per kickoff return,” said Nashville-based Teresa Walker, who voted Jennings first.Rounding out the top 10 were Chicago’s Tarik Cohen, Desmond King of the Chargers, Cincinnati’s Alex Erickson, Kansas City’s kick returner Tremon Smith, and JoJo Natson of the Rams.“Almost as exciting a player as Tyreek Hill, Cohen will get more touches on offense as his career moves along,” New York-based Barry Wilner said of Cohen, who was named on nine ballots. “That’s kind of disappointing because it means fewer opportunities to show his stuff on returns.”___The rankings:1.
