Sports in brief: Former Gator Ryan Lochte wins second gold at Pan Pacific championships


lochte's 400 im good for 2nd gold

IRVINE, Calif. — Former Gator Ryan Lochte flirted with the world record in the 400-meter individual medley before settling for a gold medal and the year's fastest time at the Pan Pacific championships Thursday night.

He led all the way and touched in 4 minutes, 7.59 seconds, lowering his meet record of 4:08.77 set in the morning heats.

Lochte was under the pace of Michael Phelps' world record through 150 meters. But he fell off it on the breaststroke leg.

Phelps had the fourth-fastest qualifying time, but he didn't make the final because Lochte and Tyler Clary were quicker. Clary earned silver in 4:09.55. It was Lochte's second gold of the meet. Nathan Adrian of the United States won the 100 free with the world's fastest time this year. Teammate Natalie Coughlin claimed the women's event for the third time.


Nadal, Murray tested then reach quarters

Top-ranked Rafael Nadal and No. 4 Andy Murray were pushed to their limits before moving on to the quarterfinals of the Cincinnati Masters.

Nadal survived a set point in the second-set tiebreaker, then surged to a 5-7, 7-6 (8-6), 6-2 victory over Julien Benneteau. A worn-out Murray took advantage of Ernests Gulbis' erratic shots for a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4) victory.

Second-ranked Roger Federer reached the quarterfinals when Philipp Kohlschreiber withdrew because of a painful right shoulder.

Top-ranked Andy Roddick wasted five match points before closing out a 6-4, 6-7 (9-7), 7-6 (7-5) win over No. 5 Robin Soderling. Third-ranked Novak Djokovic advanced by beating David Nalbandian 6-1, 7-6 (9-7).

Rogers Cup: Svetlana Kuznetsova rallied for 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 victory over Agnieszka Radwanska that put her into the quarterfinals in Montreal. The 11th-seeded Kuznetsova will face Zheng Jie, who upset fourth-seeded Elena Dementieva 7-6 (3), 6-4. Fifth-seeded Kim Clijsters advanced with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Kaia Kanepi and will face Vera Zvonareva, who downed Agnes Szavay 6-3, 6-3.


Track: Jeremy Wariner of the United States ran the world's fastest 400 meters this year at the Weltklasse Diamond League in Zurich, while Tyson Gay helped the Americans set a meet record in the 400 relay. Wariner finished in 44.13 seconds.

nba: Free agent point guard Earl Boykins, 34, signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Bucks.

  4. Bucs' Ali Marpet: Move to center could pay off big


    TAMPA — No player works as closely with Jameis Winston as the center. Only those two touch the ball on every play. Together they make — if you will — snap judgements about defensive alignments.
