John Isner hoping to make the most of Delray Beach Open

By John Evenson

The ATP World Tour will take over the the Delray Beach Tennis Open by the Venetian Las Vegas on Monday, and the # 1 player in the country, and the # 1 seed, John Isner says he's ready to get into the groove.

"I haven't really practices that much since the Australian Open," admits Isner, " so I'm just trying to get fit, just get the feel of putting hours on the court."

Isner says he loves player at Delray, an easy drive from his home in Tampa, and that he should be in for a challenge with the talent he'll be facing this week. Win or lose he says he's using the tournament to build for later in the year.

"I want to win this tournament, but if that doesn't happen so be it."John Isner hoping to make the most of Delray Beach Open

UNDATED (AP)-- The Chicago Bulls have the tough end of a back-to-back scheduling challenge tonight. After beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-105 last night in the Windy City, the Bulls hit the road to play at Indiana tonight.

That's one of 12 games on tonight's NBA slate. The Washington Wizards, who've dropped seven of their last 10, are home against Miami. The Wizards have no chance of catching division-leading Atlanta, but they're hoping to gain some ground to finish at least fourth in the Eastern Conference to gain the home-court edge in their first-round playoff series.

Those high-flying Hawks are home against Cleveland tonight in a possible preview of the Eastern Conference finals. The Hawks have a commanding 14-1/2-game lead over the Wizards. Meanwhile, the Cavs open the night a half-game back of Chicago in the Central Division. The Hawks have won five in a row while the Cavaliers are going for their third straight win.

Elsewhere in the NBA, Philadelphia hosts Utah, Orlando is home against Sacramento, Charlotte hosts Atlantic Division-leading Toronto, Boston visits New Orleans, Houston is home against Detroit, Memphis hosts the L.A. Lakers, Phoenix visits Brooklyn, San Antonio hosts Denver and Golden State is home against Dallas.


UNDATED (AP) -- In hockey, the New Jersey Devils have to pick up the pace in order to make the postseason. The Devils open the night eight points back of Boston for the final wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. That makes tonight's home game against Columbus nearly a must-win game for the Devils, who are 16-9-8 at home.

Elsewhere in hockey tonight, Carolina hosts Minnesota, Buffalo visits Ottawa, the Detroit Red Wings host Calgary, the Chicago Blackhawks host Edmonton and Pittsburgh visits Anaheim.


UNDATED (AP) -- Today's AP Top-25 schedule starts with eighth-ranked Wichita State playing Southern Illinois in the Missouri Valley Conference quarterfinals at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis in an afternoon tip-off (1:05 p.m. Eastern time). Southern Illinois advanced with a 55-48 win over Missouri State last night.

That will be followed by No. 11 Northern Iowa going up against Bradley this evening in another Missouri Valley Conference quarterfinal.

Tonight, No. 14 Baylor hosts Texas Tech. In tournament play, No. 25 Murray State is in Ohio Valley Conference semifinals against Morehead State in Nashville, Tenn.


GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -- Andy Murray quelled a mid-match comeback from Donald Young to win in four sets and give Britain a 1-0 lead over the United States in the first round of the Davis Cup.

Murray won 6-1, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 in his first match in his native Scotland since winning Wimbledon in 2013.

James Ward will play John Isner (IHZ'-nur) of the U.S. in the second singles match later today.

The U.S. team lost to Britain 3-1 last year in the first round in San Diego.


DORAL, Fla. (AP) -- After taming the Blue Monster course at Doral with a 10-under 62 yesterday, J.B. Holmes takes a four-shot lead over Ryan Moore into today's second round of the Cadillac Championship. This is the first of the World Golf Championship tournaments of the year.

The top 50 golfers in the world are entered in a tournament for the first time since the 2012 PGA Championship.

France's Alexander Levy shot a 4-under 68 and is tied with Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson for third place.


RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico (AP) -- PGA Tour rookie Mark Hubbard takes a one-stroke lead into today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open, the regular Tour stop this week. Chris Smith, Billy Mayfair and Argentina's Emiliano Grillo were tied for second.


SINGAPORE (AP) -- Carlota Ciganda shot a 6-under 66 to move into a tie for the lead with Inbee Park after the second round of the HSBC Women's Champions. They're at 9 under par. Azahara Munoz was in sole possession of third place, two strokes back.

Top-ranked Lydia Ko birdied three of the last four holes en route to a 70 that put the 17-year-old in a tie for fourth with Stacy Lewis, Jenny Shin and Karrie Webb at 6-under.

Among Americans, defending champion Paula Creamer is tied for 36th after a 71. Michelle Wie (WEE) fired a 70 that included three bogeys, three birdies and an eagle and is tied for 23rd.
