AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Round three of the Masters is underway in Augusta, Ga. As usual, the leaders have late tee times. At the midway mark yesterday, there was a two way-tie for first involving 52-year old Fred Couples and Justin Dufner. Each starts play today 5-under par. Couples, who won the Masters in 1992, shot a 5-under-67 yesterday.

ROQUEBRUNE, France (AP) — The U.S. leads France 2-1 in their best of five Davis Cup quarterfinal after brothers Bob and Mike Bryan defeated Julien Benneteau (ZHOO'-lee-ehn BEHN'-eh-toh) and Michael Llodra (loh-DRAH') in doubles play, 6-4, 6-4, 7-6. The Bryans, the top-ranked doubles pairing, have not lost a Davis Cup match since 2008. The reverse singles take place tomorrow.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Former NFL star Warren Sapp has filed for bankruptcy in South Florida. Court filings show Sapp filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Fort Lauderdale on March 30. The documents say he owes more than $6.7 million to creditors and back child support and alimony. Sapp's $6.45 million in assets includes over 200 pairs of Jordan sneakers.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians manager Manny Acta says pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez (oo-BAHL'-doh hih-MEHN'-ehz) plans to drop the appeal of his five-game suspension following his season debut today. Jimenez was suspended for intentionally throwing at Colorado All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki in his final start of spring training last Sunday. Acta said the Indians want to take advantage of an upcoming off day so the right-hander, acquired last season in a blockbuster trade from the Rockies, won't have to miss his turn in the rotation.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) —Ferris State, which is seeking its first national championship in any sport, plays Boston College tonight in the NCAA ice hockey champion. BC has outscored its NCAA tournament opponents 12-1, but BC coach Jerry York does not see tonight's game as any sort of Davis vs. Goliath, noting that Ferris State has played well all season.
