NEW YORK (AP) -- Venus Williams is looking to get to the fourth round at the U.S. Open for the first time since 2010. Standing in her way this afternoon is 13th seed Sara Errani (ehr-RAH'-nee) of Italy. While Williams owns seven major singles titles, including two at the U.S. Open in 2000 and 2001, Errani has had more recent success at tennis' most prestigious events. In 2012, Errani was the runner-up at the French Open and a semifinalist at the U.S. Open. She also was a semifinalist at the French Open last year.
In other dayside action, women's second seed Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp) has a match, as do men's No. 4 David Ferrer (feh-REHR') and No. 6 Tomas Berdych (TOH'-mahs bur-DEEK').
Coming up tonight, men's fourth seed Roger Federer has a second-round match with Australia's Sam Groth. On paper this is a matchup of David and Goliath, as Federer is 973-224 in his career with 17 major championships, while Groth has a career mark of 10-15 with losses in his only three Grand Slam matches before winning his first-round match this year.
And women's No. 5 Maria Sharapova (shah-rah-POH'-vah), a five-time major champion, has a third-round match against 26th seed Sabine Lisicki. At a hard-court tournament in Stanford, California, in July, Lisicki hit the fastest record serve in the history of the WTA, reaching 131 mph. Lisicki beat Sharapova en route to reaching the Wimbledon final in 2013, but has lost all five of their other meetings.
UNDATED (AP) -- The Angels and Athletics continue their battle for supremacy of the American League West tonight with the second game of a big four-game series in Anaheim, California. Last night the Angels beat the A's in 10 innings to take a two-game lead in the divisional race. Tonight's game features a good pitching matchup with 13-game winner Jon Lester going for the A's against 14-game winner Jered Weaver.
Two divisions feature an even tighter race than the one in the AL West. In the American Central the Royals top the Tigers by 1 1/2 games and tonight KC is home to Cleveland. The Indians are lurking in the shadows of the division, 5 1/2 games back of the Royals. The Tigers are on the road this evening for the start of a series with the White Sox in Chicago.
The National League Central is just as tight as the AL Central as first-place Milwaukee leads St. Louis by the same 1 1/2-game margin with Pittsburgh just four back. Tonight the Brewers are in San Francisco while the Cards are home to the Cubs and the Pirates are home to Cincinnati.
Wrapping up the night's schedule, the Twins are in Baltimore, the Blue Jays are home to the Yankees, the Phillies are in New York to face the Mets, Tampa Bay is hosting Boston, Texas plays at Houston, the Diamondbacks are entertaining the Dodgers and the Nationals are at Seattle.
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- In college football tonight there is one game with a ranked school participating. That game is being played in East Lansing, Michigan, as the eighth-ranked Spartans play host to Jacksonville State. A year ago Michigan State finished third in the final AP poll with a record of 13-1 and a win in the Rose Bowl.
The Gamecocks of Jacksonville State are no push-overs as they reached the quarterfinals of the Football Championship Subdivision last year. They have had 11 straight winning seasons.
HAMPTON, Georgia (AP) -- Tony Stewart is getting back behind the wheel for this weekend's Sprint Cup action in Hampton, Georgia. The Oral-B USA 500 will be his first race since the death of dirt track driver Kevin Ward Jr.
The three-time NASCAR champion has not raced since his car hit Ward at an Aug. 9 event in New York. Stewart pulled out of the NASCAR race at Watkins Glen the next morning, then skipped races at Michigan and Bristol Motor Speedway.
Stewart, who was described by police as "visibly shaken" the night of Ward's death, has been in seclusion ever since.
Qualifying for Sunday night's race is taking place this afternoon at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. The winner of this race a year ago was Kyle Busch.
Race winners get first priority for the 16-driver Chase as long as they are in the top 30 in the standings and attempted to qualify for every race. With two regular-season races left, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson top the series with three victories. Gordon leads the standings, 27 points ahead of Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr.
FONTANA, Calif. (AP) -- The IndyCar season comes to an end this weekend with the final race of the year taking place at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. All Will Power has to do is finish sixth or better to win the overall driver's championship. He leads teammate Helio Castroneves (EHL'-ee-oh cas-troh-NEHV'-us) by 51 points.
Qualifying for the Saturday night race is being held this afternoon.
Being on top of the standings entering the final race is nothing new to Power, who failed to win the championship after taking the lead into the 2010, 2011 and 2012 finales.
NORTON, Mass. (AP) -- The Deutsche DOY'-cheh) Bank Championship starts play today in Norton, Massachusetts. This is the second of the FedEx playoff events, following last week's win by Hunter Mahan (MAY'-han) in The Barclays in New Jersey.
The top 100 in the FedEx Cup standings qualified for the tournament. The field will be cut to 70 for the BMW Championship next week at Cherry Hills in Colorado, and to 30 for the Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta. To the eventual winner of the FedEx Cup, a rather nice payday of $10 million.
This week's event ends on Monday.
