Cesar made two saves in Saturday's penalty shootout victory and watched Chile's last shot from the spot smack the post, helping save Brazil from a humiliating loss in the second round of the World Cup.

The score was level 1-1 after extra time, and Brazil...

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The giant escaped alive — just barely.

Brazil has beaten Chile 3-2 on penalties in its Round of 16 World Cup soccer match.

MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade has said he wants to stay with the Miami Heat. Apparently, that means he has to technically leave first.

Wade told the Heat on Saturday that he is opting out of the final two years of his contract, making him a free agent who may negotiate with any team — Miami included — on July 1.

Forlan was named the best player of the 2010 World Cup but has struggled to make an impact in Brazil, despite starting in Uruguay's opening 2-1 loss to Costa Rica, when Suarez was still recovering from knee surgery.

With Suarez now banned for biting an opponent in the group-stage win...

LONDON (AP) — As Serena Williams began to fall behind in what would become her earliest Wimbledon exit in nearly a decade, her coach could tell something was awry.

Not the so-so serving. Or the bad backhands. This was a larger problem.

"Right now, she doesn't have her usual ability to respond and turn matches around," said Patrick Mouratoglou, who has worked with Williams since 2012. "It was obvious when she trailed 3-0 in the second set. Nothing...
