Ryan, 24, and ranked 118th, is in his seventh.---5:10 p.m.Andy Murray is facing a first-round opponent at the U.S. Open to whom he once said during a match: No one likes you on the tour -- everyone hates you.The dust-up occurred last year in the quarterfinals at Munich after Lukas Rosol appeared to intentionally bump Murray during a changeover. Murray later grumbled across the court to Rosol about nobody liking him.In a post-match interview, Murray acknowledged he shouldnt have made the comment but added that Rosols actions required some sort of response. He noted Rosol had a reputation for that sort of behavior.Asked Friday about the incident, the second-seeded Murray said he and Rosol spoke after the match and cleared the air. He insists: I have actually gotten along fine with him apart from that day.Currently ranked 82nd, Rosol upset Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in 2012.

The 14-time major champ returned for the Olympics and reached the semifinals in singles and won the doubles gold medal.The left-handed Spaniard said Friday that now I can start to hit my normal forehand, but it will take time to regain full confidence in the shot. When he first came back from the injury, he had to adjust his technique to avoid pain, so now he needs to get comfortable again with his regular stroke.---1:40 p.m.Top-ranked Serena Williams says she hasnt practiced much because of her right shoulder injury.Williams was struggling physically during her third-round loss at the Olympics and pulled out of the hard-court warmup in Cincinnati because of the shoulder problem. She said Friday that Im just now starting to feel a little bit better.The American says she was able to practice for only two days before the Rio Games after the shoulder started bothering her following her Wimbledon victory. She says she is doing a lot of physical therapy.Williams is seeking her 23rd major title, which would break a tie with Steffi Graf for most in the Open era.---1:20 p.m.Top-ranked Novak Djokovic says he injured his left wrist in Rio de Janeiro a few days before the start of the Olympic tournament.The right-handed Djokovic needs that wrist for his backhand. He said Friday hes getting there and hopes hell be as close to 100 percent as possible when he starts to defend his U.S. Open title.The 12-time major champ also said his issues at Wimbledon werent physical, but there were other things I was going through. He declined to elaborate on those problems other than to say they had been resolved.After Djokovic was upset in the third round of Wimbledon by 41st-ranked Sam Querrey, he was asked if he was 100 percent healthy, replying not really but not going into details.Djokovic lost in the first round at the Rio Games to 2009 U.S. Open champ Juan Martin del Potro, whose ranking slipped because of left wrist problems of his own. Djokovic then pulled out of the hard-court warmup at Cincinnati, the first time hed cited an issue with the wrist.---12:35 p.m.Top-ranked Serena Williams will meet two-time major semifinalist Ekaterina Makarova in the first round of the U.S. Open as the American seeks a record 23rd Grand Slam title.Makarova made two straight major semis at the 2014 U.S. Open, losing to Williams, and the 2015 Australian Open. Her ranking has slipped to 36th, and she just missed a seed at Flushing Meadows. The Russian is coming off an Olympic doubles gold medal.Williams could face fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska in the semifinals, which is also when she could potentially meet sister Venus. Australian Open champ Angelique Kerber and French Open winner Garbine Muguruza are in the other half of the draw, which was set Friday.---12:05 p.m.Top-ranked Novak Djokovic faces 2013 Wimbledon semifinalist Jerzy Janowicz in the first round of the U.S. Open.Janowicz has been ranked has high as 14th but has struggled in recent years and missed much of this season because of injuries.

Had Puig remained unseeded, she could have met one of the top players in the first or second round.The 23-year-old Stephens was a 2013 quarterfinalist at Flushing Meadows and reached the semifinals at the Australian Open that year. While she had more success earlier in her career in the Grand Slams than in other tour events, that pattern had reversed in the last couple of years.Stephens hadnt played since losing in the first round at the Olympics.---9:45 a.m.When the U.S. Open draw sets the first-round matchups, a top player could find himself with a daunting task.Olympic silver medalist Juan Martin del Potro is unseeded at the years final major, which starts Monday. Del Potro is ranked No. 142 because three left wrist surgeries forced him to miss so much time. The 2009 U.S. Open champ needed a wild card to get into the tournament.So Fridays draw could put him in position to face a seeded player in the first or second round. Thats what happened to top-ranked Novak Djokovic at the Olympics, when he lost to del Potro in his opening match. Its possible they could meet again early at Flushing Meadows.Del Potro has defeated three of the U.S. Opens top four seeds since the start of Wimbledon. Cheap Adidas Trainers Uk .

Bryant, who had three hits and reached base four times, followed with his tiebreaking hit to put the Cubs back ahead.I just go out and try to make something happen, Szczur said. I was able to get a good pitch to drive and (Bryant) did the rest. . Weve been grinding, were a bunch of grinders, so that was a good way to end the first half. We feel good about ourselves.Chicago avoided a series sweep ended its five game losing streak. Pittsburgh lost for just the second time in 11 games heading to the All-Star break.With the win, the Cubs carry a seven-game lead over the second-place St. Louis Cardinals into the break.We need a break, Chicago manager Joe Maddon said. We need to get guys rested. The combination of the schedule and, more specifically, the last week with the way games were scheduled, it put us in a fatigue situation.Cubs reliever Pedro Strop (2-2) gave up Andrew McCutchens tying sacrifice fly in the seventh, Carl Edwards pitched a hitless eight and Hector Rondon got the last three outs for his 14th save.The Pirates tied the score at 5-5 after the Cubs failed to turn a double play off a dribbler from Starling Marte in the seventh. With rookie Josh Bell at second base and John Jaso at first, Marte grounded to shortstop Addison Russell with Bell running back to second.Russell didnt tag Bell and instead handed off to second baseman Ben Zobrist, whose relay throw to first failed to beat Marte. First baseman Anthony Rizzo threw back across the diamond to third, where Bell avoided a tag from Javier Baez.With runners on the corners and one out, McCutchen drove in Bell with a fly to deep right field. Strop ended the inning by getting David Freese on a fly ball.Strop had come in for starter John Lackey, who had another inconsistent outing. After allowing four runs in his first three innings, which included McCutchens 14th home run of the season and his second in two days, Lackey rebounded by shutting down the Pirates through the following three innings.Lackey lost his control again when he walked Bell and allowed Jaso to follow with a single to start the seventh inning.ddddddddddddPirates starter Jonathan Niese fared worse, giving up five earned runs in 3 2/3 innings. He was pulled in favor of Arquimedes Caminero in the fourth inning after surrendering a two-run home run to Albert Almora Jr., retiring the following two batters and allowing back-to-back hits to Bryant and Rizzo in top of the fourth inning.When hes been good, theres downhill angle, hes had good command down in the zone, getting the ball in the glove side, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. There were too many pitches elevated again today. Thats really been the one common theme, is location. With better location down, hes been much more efficient.Niese has lost five of his past six starts and is 7-7 after beginning the season 6-2.Im really done worrying about my mechanics, Niese said. As long as Im executing pitches, thats all that matters. So, this All-Star break is going to be good. Its a good reset button. Im going to go home, enjoy the family and come back in the second half and give it all I got. Just start executing pitches.TRAINERS ROOMCubs: OF Dexter Fowler will miss the All-Star Game on Tuesday and likely some time following the break.
