PARIS (AP) — Venus Williams has been fined $3,000 by tournament organizers for not showing up at a news conference following her first-round exit at the French Open.

After the 15th-seeded Williams lost 7-6 (5), 6-1 to Sloane Stephens on Monday, she snubbed the media, instead issuing a short statement to the press.

It was Williams' second opening defeat in three years at Roland Garros. At 34, the seven-time major champion was the oldest woman in the...

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A new attraction opening this week at the home of the Milwaukee Brewers pays homage to former team owner and retired baseball commissioner Bud Selig.

"The Selig Experience" at Miller Park is also just as much a celebration of the franchise's history and a symbol of baseball's rock-solid future in Milwaukee.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Glory Johnson didn't expect to be arrested after her fight with Brittney Griner at their home.

The WNBA All-Stars battled so intensely that the police were called. The now-married couple worked through the problem together and thought that would be enough.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Matt Kemp hit a three-run double down the left-field line with two outs in the 10th inning, and the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-0 on Tuesday night.

Kemp equaled his RBI total from his previous 15 games with one big hit for the Padres, who broke open a scoreless game by batting around in the extra inning to win for just the second time in seven games.

Jedd Gyorko snapped an 0-for-13 skid with a single leading...
