SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The U.S. Open halfway leaders won't tee it up for a while on what is shaping up as another tough scoring day at The Olympic Club. Tiger Woods, David Toms and Jim Furyk (FYOOR'-ihk) shared a one-stroke lead at 1-under par after 36 holes.
BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Marcos Ambrose was the fastest of 19 drivers to surpass 200 miles per hour in today's Sprint Cup qualifying and will be on the pole tomorrow when the green flag drops at Michigan International Speedway. Forty drivers broke the old track record on the repaved two-mile oval.
WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) - The rain has relented and the IndyCar race is under way at the Milwaukee Mile. Dario Franchitti (DAH'-ree-oh fran-KEE'-tee) led the field to the green flag.
HALLE, Germany (AP) — Roger Federer will play for a record sixth Gerry Weber Open title on Sunday in Germany against German wild card Tommy Haas after both posted semifinals victories today. Federer is aiming to win his 75th tour title. That would leave him two short of John McEnroe's all-time record.
ROME (AP) —The beach volleyball pairing of Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal reached the semifinals of an event in Rome today, giving them enough points to ensure a return trip to the Olympics. They lost in the quarterfinals four years ago in Beijing, where fellow Americans Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser (DAL'-how-zur) won gold. Those two had already clinched a berth in London.
