Last weekend, Federer defeated hot newcomer John Isner and on Wednesday he continued his dominance over Andy Roddick by defeating him for the 10th straight time. The victory places Federer in the semi finals where he will face fourth seed Nikolay Davydenko of Russia. Federer is on a mission to win his fourth straight US Open.

The team, led by Kobe Byrant and LeBron James, secured a spot in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. The Americans have failed to win gold in the last two World Championships as well as the 2004 Olympics in Athens. The US Team answered criticism about the results from their national team in recent years by going a perfect 10-0 and averaging 116.7 points in the tournament.

Sports News - Benoit Had Brain Damage

Over a month after Chris Benoit killed his wife and son before committing suicide, it has been discovered that he had some brain damage. Based on a study done by the Sports Legacy Institute, the number of concussions he suffered from wrestling may explain his violent outbursts. Although it has not been proven yet, steroids are believed to have also contributed in Benoit's emotional state.
