LONDON -- The last flickering hopes of U.S. men at 2016 Wimbledon were doused Wednesday in a slow and steady shower of unreturnable Milos Raonic serves and volleys.Raonic ended Sam Querreys impressive trip to his first Grand Slam quarterfinal in an artful display of throwback tennis, serving and volleying his way to a 6-4, 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 win in two and a half hours.I knew he had a big serve, Querrey said afterward. But I was really impressed with his net game. He really didnt miss a volley today. He kept coming forward, kept the pressure on me, and I felt it. Kudos to him for playing a very good, clean match.Call it the McEnroe Effect. Raonic recently began working with tennis icon turned commentator John McEnroe, the most electric serve-and-volley player of his storied era. McEnroe has remained an evangelist for attacking tennis, and he has advocated for his latest understudy to attack more opportunistically and to be more assertive on the court. If this match is an indication of things to come, Roger Federer could have more hard work ahead of himself in Fridays semifinal meeting with the 6-foot-5 Canadian.One of the first things we focused on when we were spending a week of training [before the Queens tournament] was really about not passing up any opportunities to come forward, Raonic said. Just to always keep the pressure on my opponents, keep them guessing, making them feel uncomfortable, trying to make them play unbalanced as much as possible.Querrey certainly felt unbalanced. He allowed later that the constant pressure ate at him and corroded his game.All of a sudden its 30-all, and youve got a forehand in the middle of the court, and youre kind of like, I havent hit one of these in 30 minutes, Querrey said.The match stats tell a fascinating and, for this era, unfamiliar story. Raonic hit a modest 13 aces, but he made serve-and-volley approaches on nearly half his opportunities (42-of-105). Thats unheard of in this era of baseline walloping.More striking, Raonic won 79 percent of those approaches -- a remarkable number, given the oft-repeated refrain that its no longer possible to play old-school serve-and-volley tennis. And thanks to his volley, he was also able to win 71 percent of his second-serve points.American men on the whole had an excellent Wimbledon in light of their recent struggles. Querrey was the first Grand Slam quarterfinalist for the U.S. in nearly five years -- since the 2011 US Open. Other players from the U.S. also did some good racket work. It all started on a positive note when Donald Young knocked off Argentinas Leonardo Mayer in the first round.More highlights for the U.S. during Wimbledon:Querreys stunning upset of Novak Djokovic in the third round was the most significant stunner of the fortnight. Querrey led by two sets to none when the match was called because of rain. He ultimately held his nerve the following day to win in five sets.Unseeded Steve Johnson defeated former Wimbledon semifinalist Grigor Dimitrov in five sets. The third-round win vaulted Johnson into a match with Roger Federer, who ended the Americans run. Johnson also won the first ATP Tour title of his career, in Nottingham, shortly before Wimbledon.John Isner failed to reach the fourth round for the third year running. The master of the marathon Wimbledon match, Isner won the first two sets from No. 12 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on the first Saturday of play. Tsonga won the third-set tiebreaker in waning light and the match was suspended until Peoples Sunday.The people were treated to a lengthy conclusion. Tsonga won the fourth set 6-2, and the fifth set evoked echoes of Isners 70-68 fifth-set Wimbledon epic against Nicolas Mahut in 2010. Isner and Tsonga swapped service holds until the Frenchman finally punched through to win it 19-17.Jack Sock, seeded No. 27, had a good win against a resurgent Ernests Gulbis in Round 1 and fought his way into the third round. Raonic proved too much for Sock at that stage, serving his way to a straight-sets win.I think its been a great two weeks for the mens side, Querrey said before leaving Wimbledon for his final grass event this year, in Newport. Steve Johnson had a great run and also got his first title. Even though John and Jack lost in the third round, they lost to tough players. To have two guys in the third round, a guy in the fourth round, a guy in the quarters, we dont do that too often. It was nice.And with the hard-court season coming up (this year, it includes the Olympic Games in Rio), things could get even nicer. Elite Cowboys Jerseys .

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa is planning to lay off a former top athletic administrator who is suing the school for gender discrimination and retaliation, the school confirmed Wednesday.Iowa has informed former senior associate athletic director Jane Meyer that her position as a project manager will be eliminated Sept. 9, saying it is no longer necessary.Meyers attorney, Jill Zwagerman, went to court Wednesday seeking an injunction to block the termination from taking effect. Zwagerman argued that the layoff was further retaliation for Meyers complaints about unequal pay and treatment of women and lesbians in the athletics department and went back on previous promises that shed remain employed.The university said it would resist the injunction and denied discrimination and retaliation.The dispute is the latest in a messy personnel situation that has contributed to two lawsuits and an ongoing federal civil rights investigation of Iowas athletics department.It dates to August 2014, when athletic director Gary Barta abruptly fired longtime successful womens field hockey coach Tracey Griesbaum shortly before the season began. Meyer is Griesbaums longtime partner. Griesbaum has denied the universitys allegations that she bullied players and has sued the school, alleging she faced bias as a gay female coach.After Griesbaum gave notice that she planned to sue, the university reassigned Meyer to a job outside of the athletics department, where she had been the senior womans administrator since 2001. Barta said that Meyer could not work in the department while her partner pursued legal action and that Meyers leave would continue until Griesbaums case was resolved.The reassignment came one day after Meyer sent Barta a letter alleging that she was being targeted and discriminated against because she is a gay woman. Meyer noted that a newly-hired male administrator, deputy athletic director Gene Taylor, was given a much higher salary even though he performed many of the duties Meyer did previously.ddddddddddddThe complaint, released for the first time in court documents Wednesday, also recounted several instances when Meyer said she complained about the treatment of women.Many of these issues have been ignored, in my view, because they are important to women or threaten the male dominated culture in the athletics department, she wrote.The university allowed Meyer to keep her $173,000 annual salary after her move to a job overseeing university construction projects. She was later transferred to a position helping coordinate the complex moves of art and music programs into new buildings that have been built to replace those destroyed in a 2008 flood. She received positive evaluations in those roles, according to the evaluations submitted as court evidence.With the moves wrapping up at the beginning of the fall semester, the university gave Meyer the three-month notice required under university policy of her pending job elimination, spokeswoman Jeneane Beck said. The notice said that Meyer was eligible to apply for other positions.But Zwagerman said that Meyer had been assured her reassignment was temporary and that she would remain employed by the university. Now its clear, she said, that the school never had any intention of returning her to athletics.They merely wanted to create a time gap between Ms. Meyers whistleblowing and her termination in order to avoid any further retaliation allegations, Zwagerman wrote.Iowa could transfer Meyer to another job or return her to athletics by removing her from any involvement in Griesbaums case, she wrote.A judge is expected to rule on the injunction request in coming weeks.
