LONDON - Novak Djokovic might win Wimbledon this year. Juan Martin del Potro will not. No matter how it ends, both men will always have their spot in one of the most memorable matches in the storied history of the All England Club. Slugging back and forth over a semifinal-record 4 hours, 43 minutes of backbreaking tennis yesterday, top-seeded Djokovic emerged with a 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-7 (6), 6-3 victory to move one win away from his seventh major title. "One of the most epic matches I've played in my life," Djokovic said.

NEW YORK - His match, and his retirement, put off for at least another day, Andy Roddick stepped out of Arthur Ashe Stadium and into the drizzly night, a black jacket's hood pulled overhead, a bag of ice soothing his right shoulder. He'll try to prolong his U.S. Open - and his professional tennis career - on Wednesday. Roddick's fourth-round showdown against another past champion at Flushing Meadows, Juan Martin del Potro, of Argentina, was suspended because of rain Tuesday night, with the American leading 1-0 in a first-set tiebreaker.

NEW YORK - Maybe Roger Federer got too much time off between U.S. Open matches. This much is certain: He won't be playing again at this year's tournament after losing to Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals. Five-time champion Federer departs Flushing Meadows before the semifinals for the first time since 2003, stunned by the sixth-seeded Berdych, 7-6 (1), 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, Wednesday night. Federer's forehand was way off, while the 6-5 Berdych kept pounding serves and groundstrokes right where he wanted them.

UCLA quarterback Ben Olson has a broken foot and will be sidelined for at least 2 months. Olson, whose career has been marked by injuries, broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during practice on Saturday, and X-rays taken yesterday revealed the fracture. He suffered the same injury during spring practice. A decision on whether he will have surgery is expected to be made in a few days. Kevin Craft, a junior-college transfer, and redshirt freshman Chris Forcier are expected to compete for the Bruins' starting job. Patrick Cowan, who took over when Olson was sidelined by injury last season and was set to be the No. 1 quarterback heading into the season, had surgery after hurting his knee in spring practice and will miss the season.

Nikolay Davydenko won the first big tournament of his career yesterday, running down just about every ball and using a consistent serve to beat U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, 6-3, 6-4, to win the ATP World Tour Finals in London. Davydenko was coming off his semifinal victory over top-ranked Roger Federer and dominated his service games against Del Potro, losing only five points on serve in the first set and eight in the second. "Maybe I had good concentration. I was surprised," said Davydenko, who has reached four Grand Slam tournament semifinals but never made a final.

Nick DeLeon scored in the 88th minute to give D.C. United a 1-0 victory Thursday over the New York Red Bulls that clinched the MLS Eastern Conference semifinal. The host Red Bulls, who lost the aggregate series, 2-1, and are out of the playoffs, were poised to take the lead in the 69th minute when they were awarded a penalty kick after D.C. goalie Bill Hamid was given a red card. The Red Bulls, however, scored a goal that was taken back, and backup keeper Joe Willis made a crucial save on the second attempt.

NEW YORK - So, Victoria Azarenka, what went through your mind as your high-tension, high-quality U.S. Open quarterfinal victory over defending champion Sam Stosur stretched into a third-set tiebreaker? "You don't want to know what I kept telling myself," Azarenka deadpanned Tuesday. "I would have to beep that, I think. " She went on to offer a cleaned-up version of what her thoughts had been - "Don't be a chicken" - while cobbling together a 6-1, 4-6, 7-6 (5) rain-interrupted win that eliminated Stosur, put the top-seeded Azarenka in her first semifinal at Flushing Meadows, and assured her of retaining the No. 1 ranking no matter what happens the rest of this week.

NEW YORK - More than an hour after hitting one last shot as a professional tennis player, then delivering one last, voice-wavering speech to an adoring U.S. Open audience, Andy Roddick exited the locker room one last time. Accompanied by his wife and other family members, a black baseball cap tugged low over his eyes, Roddick slung a racket bag off his aching right shoulder - the one responsible for so many high-speed aces, violent forehands and the most recent Grand Slam title by an American man - and tossed the equipment in the back of a waiting van. Won't need that any longer.

Bo Van Pelt missed a chance at a rare 59 on Saturday when he had double-bogey on the 18th at the CIMB Classic, an unofficial PGA Tour event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Van Pelt had 11 birdies on the par-71 Mines Resort and Golf Club course. He needed one more to join an elite club. However, he hit his approach on No. 18 into the greenside bunker and needed three putts, finishing with a 9-under 62 for a share of the third-round lead with Robert Garrigus at 16 under. Garrigus, who led by 2 strokes going into the weekend, had 69 for a total of 197, while fellow American Chris Kirk shot a 63 to move to 15 under, 1 clear of Zimbabwe's Brendon de Jonge and South Africa's Jbe Kruger . Tiger Woods had a 69 and was in a group of five players at 11-under.
