  • Much has changed since Title IX

    NORTHFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Emily Miller remembers learning about Title IX during history class, probably sometime in junior high. She’s a little fuzzy on the details, including how and why it came about.
    Every time she steps on the soccer field, though, she feels its effect.
    At 16, Miller can’t even imagine who she’d be without the game. She’s played since kindergarten, and credits soccer for her independence and self-confidence. She’s now a starter on the varsity team at New Trier High School in suburban Chicago.
    “Soccer,” she said, “is what makes me Emily Miller.”

  • Wimbledon men’s draw a 3-way race

    WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — As Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer step back on the grass at Wimbledon, each has reason to believe he’ll be hoisting the trophy in two weeks.
    None of the other 125 men in the field can honestly say the same.
    It’s tough to imagine anyone outside that trio winning this year’s championship at the All England Club, where play begins Monday.
    “They’ve, you know, been pretty selfish about Grand Slam titles for a little bit,” said 2003 U.S. Open champion and three-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy Roddick.
    They sure have.
    It has been either Nadal or Djokovic has won each of the past nine major tournaments.
