WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Hope turned to disappointment one more time for Andy Murray and British tennis, which has now gone 76 years without a British male winning Wimbledon.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The U.S. men's Olympic basketball team selected over the weekend will look much different than the one that captured gold four years ago in Beijing. But coach Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF'-skee) says this team is more versatile but will have to make up for the loss of injured stars Dwyane (dwayn) Wade, Chris Bosh and Dwight Howard, mainstays from the gold-medal winning team from four years ago.
