    Updated Cilic errors gift Zverev victory in ATP Finals opener

    LONDON (AP) - Of all the errors Marin Cilic made in another ATP Finals defeat, the most costly one may not have come from his racket. Cilic made 46 unforced errors as he gave up a break advantage in both sets in losing to Alexander Zverev 7-6 (5), 7-1 (1) on Monday, dropping the Croat's record at the season-ending tournament to 1-9 across four appearances.

    Bengals fire defensive coordinator after rout by Saints New

The Bengals (5-4) have given up 500 yards in three straight games - a first in the Super Bowl era - and are on pace to give up an NFL record for yards in a season.

    Rutgers women's basketball coach Stringer nearing 1,000 wins New

    NEW YORK (AP) - When C. Vivian Stringer first started coaching 46 years ago, there weren't many female African-American basketball coaches to turn to for advice. So she looked elsewhere.

I had so much respect for them that I was able to learn and they were kind enough to teach."
