As the sun set on the opening week of Wimbledon, just about the only seeding that truly signified something was No. 1.

Just like that, in a span of 15 days, Rafael Nadal went from French Open champion for a record eighth time to first-round Grand Slam loser for the only time in his career.

On a night when the Durham Bulls pounded out 15 hits, two stood out the most. Shelley Duncan made the most of his return from a bereavement leave, blasting a pair of three-run homers as the Durham Bulls posted a 16-3 victory over the Louisville Bats on Monday night at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
Indianapolis broke open its International League baseball game against Durham Thursday night with a four-run fifth inning. The Bulls bounced back with something twice as nice to regain control of the game.

Tony Stewart ducked through a tarp-covered tent in the garage and was off to the No. 14. "Make it two in a row, Tony!" a fan yelled as Stewart hustled through the Pocono Raceway garage.
