Before they stepped on court, there was nothing to suggest Andy Murray would have any trouble against Adrian Mannarino in the U.S. Open's second round. Murray, after all, is seeded No. 3, owns two major championships including at Flushing Meadows in 2012, and had reached at least the quarterfinals at the last 18 Grand Slam tournaments he'd entered. Mannarino, meanwhile, is ranked 35th, has never won a tour-level title, and only three times in his career has even managed to win more than one match at a major.

Judge sides with Brady on 'Deflategate,' NFL appeals (Yahoo Sports)

U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman criticized Goodell for dispensing ''his own brand of industrial justice'' as he found multiple reasons to reject the suspension one week before New England's Sept. 10 opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Super Bowl MVP has insisted he played no role in a conspiracy to deflate footballs below the allowable limit at last season's AFC championship game, a 45-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts.
