Wawrinka gets into tiff with fan in US Open win (Yahoo Sports)
- Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka got into a bit of a tiff with a spectator, telling him to ''Shut up,'' on the way to beating 91st-ranked Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (1) in the second round of the U.S. In a match that began Wednesday and finished after 12:30 a.m. Thursday, the third-seeded Wawrinka quickly built a two-set lead before faltering a bit, muttering aloud at himself after one miss: ''Too many mistakes!'' By the time he was locked in a tight fourth set, Wawrinka was talking directly to a fan who was bothering him, turning toward the Arthur Ashe Stadium stands and saying: ''Shut up, man! Seriously, shut up.'' Bellucci, a left-hander, was ranked as high as 21st in 2010, but arrived in New York with a record of only 11-10 this season.

- A year ago at this time, Maria Sharapova was sitting out the U.S. On Wednesday, Sharapova found herself down by a set and facing a break point early in the second at Flushing Meadows, bothered by the whipping wind, her own off-target strokes and an opponent who wasn't backing down. As dusk fell and the Arthur Ashe Stadium lights came on, Sharapova came through the way she so often does in the crucible of a third set, beating 95th-ranked Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of the Grand Slam tournament she won in 2006 but has missed twice in the past six years.

USC's Shaw admits to lying about injuries, rescue (Yahoo Sports)
- Southern California cornerback Josh Shaw has admitted to lying to school officials about how he sprained his ankles last weekend, retracting his story about jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew. Shaw has been suspended indefinitely from all of the Trojans' team activities after acknowledging his heroic tale was ''a complete fabrication,'' the school announced in a statement Wednesday. The school didn't explain how Shaw actually was injured, but USC officials say they regret posting a story on their website Monday lauding Shaw's story about a second-story jump onto concrete to rescue his 7-year-old nephew. ''We are extremely disappointed in Josh,'' USC coach Steve Sarkisian said.
