Sports in brief: Lleyton Hewitt topples Roger Federer for Gerry Weber Open title


Hewitt hands Federer rare loss

HALLE, Germany — Roger Federer remains confident heading into Wimbledon next week even after losing on grass for only the second time in more than seven years.

The No. 2-ranked Federer, who came into the final at the Gerry Weber Open with a 76-1 record on grass since 2003, lost 3-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4 to Lleyton Hewitt in Sunday's title match.

Federer's only other loss on the surface was against top-ranked Rafael Nadal in the 2008 Wimbledon final.

"I was unfortunate not to come through (Sunday), but the loss here does not worry me in any way," top-seeded Federer said.

Fish falls: American Sam Querrey won the Queen's Club title in London, edging Tampa's Mardy Fish 7-6 (7-3), 7-5.

More events: Top-seeded Li Na beat second-seeded Maria Sharapova 7-5, 6-1 to win the Aegon Classic in Birmingham, England. … Second-seeded Dinara Safina was knocked out of the first round of the Unicef Open with a 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 6-4 loss to Magdalena Rybarikova in Den Bosch, Netherlands.


Police: QB Young cited

Titans QB Vince Young received a misdemeanor assault citation after getting into a fight at a Dallas strip club and leaving before authorities arrived, police said. Surveillance video showed Young and several people talking in a small room before he attacked someone at Club Onyx. Young was given a Class C assault citation and faces a fine as high as $500.


Zenyatta now 17-0

Zenyatta won her 17th consecutive race, giving her the longest winning streak by a modern-day thoroughbred in unrestricted races. The 6-year-old mare won the $200,000 Vanity Handicap by a half-length at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, Calif., rallying with her usual last-place move to overtake St Trinians approaching the wire.


Lopez heads hall class

Danny "Little Red" Lopez, a former featherweight champion, and longtime Associated Press writer Ed Schuyler Jr. were among 13 men inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, N.Y. Lopez, 57, went 42-6 in a 10-year career. "I felt much better winning a fight in the ring, but this is comparable to it. Pretty close."

Et cetera

Cycling: Heinrich Haussler took the second stage of the Tour of Switzerland in Sierre, and Lance Armstrong climbed to 33rd overall, 29 seconds behind leader Fabian Cancellara.

NHL: Kings assistant coach Mark Hardy, 51, a former defenseman, resigned while facing a fourth-degree charge of felony sexual abuse. He is scheduled to return to court July 1.
