KITZBUEHEL, Austria (AP) — Paolo Lorenzi of Italy downed two-time former champion Robin Haase 6-2, 6-3 in the first round of the Kitzbuehel Cup on Tuesday.

The sixth-seeded Dutchman, who won the event in 2011 and '12, dropped serve early in both sets and failed to break Lorenzi's serve.

Last year's finalist, Juan Monaco, overcame a slow start to defeat Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan 0-6, 6-2, 6-1.

MUNICH (AP) — A German court says prosecutors and lawyers for Bernie Ecclestone are in talks about a possible deal to end the Formula One boss' bribery trial.

The 83-year-old Ecclestone went on trial in Munich in April, charged with bribery and incitement to breach of trust. The charges involve a $44 million payment to banker Gerhard Gribkowsky, who is serving an 8 1/2-year sentence for taking the money.

Ecclestone says Gribkowsky blackmailed him.

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — It was only a matter of time before a doping scandal hit the Commonwealth Games. This time, it involved a 16-year-old female weightlifting gold medalist from Nigeria.

Chika Amalaha tested positive for the diuretic amiloride and masking agent hydrochlorothiazide — both banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency — after winning the 53-kilogram weight class last Friday, games officials said Tuesday.

She's the first athlete to test positive during the games, which opened last Wednesday night.

CHICAGO (AP) — The NCAA has agreed to settle a class-action head injury lawsuit.

A federal court filing obtained by The Associated Press says the NCAA will create a $70 million fund to test current and former college athletes for brain injuries. Players can use the results later as grounds for suing for damages.

The NCAA also agreed to implement a single return-to-play policy spelling out how all teams must treat players who receive blows to the head.
