Hamilton and Vettel make up after Baku incident

em>By Jerome Pugmire, Associated Press /em> SPIELBERG, Austria (AP) — A contrite and apologetic Sebastian Vettel accepted full blame again for the controversial racing incident with Lewis Hamilton at the recent Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Sitting alongside him at a packed news conference on Thursday, Hamilton accepted the apology but maintained justice was not done. Two weeks ago, an irate Vettel swerved into Hamilton, albeit at slow speed, because he thought the British driver slammed his brakes on recklessly late, right in front of him, seconds earlier. 'It was the wrong move to drive alongside him and hit his tire. I guess that's what you all want to hear,' Vettel said. 'Am I proud of the moment? No. Can I take it back? No. Obviously what I did was wrong and I apologized. I did make a mistake and I can understand if he's upset. It's good that we can move forward.' Vettel escaped further punishment this week after Formula One governing body the FIA reviewed the incident in Paris. Vettel traveled to the hearing, apologized, and escaped with a verbal warning from president Jean Todt. Insufficient in Hamilton's view. 'Jean should be sitting next to us to be honest, to answer the same question,' Hamilton said. 'They didn't change anything on the Monday, so the message sent remains the same.' In other words, that dangerous driving went unpunished, in this case. 'An intense battle is good for any sport, I don't disagree with that,' Hamilton said. 'But we are used as a platform, we are a role model and we are supposed to inspire and send a message.' After the race, an irate Hamilton said Vettel 'disgraced himself' for his driving. 'I don't think I have to take back anything I said,' Hamilton said on Thursday. 'It's water under the bridge now.' Their heated clash further raised the profile of an already intriguing Formula One season. Vettel, chasing a fifth world title, leads the championship after eight races. Hamilton, chasing a fourth title, is 14 points behind in second place heading into the Austria GP this weekend. There was a buzz of anticipation before the news conference, and the mood was leavened by Danish driver Kevin Magnussen, the first of the three scheduled drivers to arrive. Magnussen gave a thumbs-up — jokingly pretending he was the center of attention — and pretended to leave his seat in the middle free, so the rivals would have to sit next to each other. Hamilton, sat on Magnussen's right, filmed the large media crowd on his phone, while Vettel was on Magnussen's left, sat stern-faced. 'Best press conference ever,' Hamilton quipped. Then the questions began, with Vettel soon on the back foot. At the time, he explained, he reacted angrily because he thought Hamilton brake-tested him — a dangerous move in F1 whereby a driver suddenly slams on the brakes to impede the driver behind. 'I had the impression at the time that I got fouled, which was wrong,' Vettel said. 'If I could go back in time and literally take it back I would, but I can't.' Asked if he had used his car as a weapon, Vettel became defensive, arms folded. 'I never had the intention to hurt him, to punch him,' he said, pausing to find his words, and then refuting suggestions he has a problem controlling his temper. 'I don't think so. I can see why you might believe it.' Other drivers, such as Brazilian veteran Felipe Massa, felt Vettel went too far. 'Sebastian was a bit over the limit,' Massa said 'Everyone wants to see them fighting, fire around the championship, but not in this way.' Although he felt Vettel should have been punished further, Hamilton insisted their mutual respect remains intact. 'Sebastian and I spoke on the Monday [the day after] and then I got a text the next from Sebastian the next day ]apologizing] and I did accept it,' Hamilton said. 'I said I still had the utmost respect for him as a driver. My only point to Sebastian was to correct publicly that I brake-tested him, which was not the case. People were sending messages to me that I was out of order.' .....»»

Petra Kvitova reaches semifinals at Aegon Classic

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, competing in only her second tournament since her playing hand was injured in a knife attack at her home, advanced to the semifinals at the Aegon Classic on Friday. The left-handed Czech player beat Kristina Mladenovic 6-4, 7-6 (5) on grass at the Wimbledon warm-up tournament. Kvitova struck the ball solidly on both sides, moved well, and made bold forays to the net. But she double-faulted twice when she was trying to close out the match at 5-3 in the second set. Mladenovic evened the score and led 3-1 in the tiebreaker. She rescued herself with two pieces of good luck. First, Mladenovic double-faulted going for 4-1 in the tiebreak, and when she was serving at match point down at 5-6, Kvitova's widish-looking service return took a net cord, lurched into court, and fell dead. 'I am sorry for what happened at match point, but I am very happy to win,' Kvitova said. 'She is very highly ranked (12) and for me it is only the second tournament in my comeback. I was very happy with my performance.' Kvitova next plays a friend since childhood, compatriot Lucie Safarova. She had her own drama, saving match points for the second time this week. She recovered from 5-3 down in the final set to beat Daria Gavrilova of Australia 6-7 (4), 6-3, 7-6 (5). Safarova saved two match points against third-seededed Dominika Cibulkova in the first round, and three against Gavrilova in a contest so full of entertaining rallies that the women received a prolonged standing ovation. The tournament's other Grand Slam winner, former French Open champion Garbine Muguruza, also reached the semifinals, only her third of the year and the first on grass since she reached the final of Wimbledon nearly two years ago. It happened abruptly when her opponent CoCo Vandeweghe, the unseeded American who ousted the fourth-seeded Johanna Konta, shook hands just three points into the final set. Muguruza won 4-6, 6-4, 30-love, though she took pleasure in again having achieved a good rhythm on a surface which is not the most natural for her. 'I came here early and I have put in the hours, and I feel I'm doing something good because I am winning,' she said. 'But to be honest I didn't even realize she was going to retire.' Vandeweghe injured a foot in her opening match which, she said, contributed to a fall in the second set against Muguruza. She hurt an ankle. 'Any injury so soon before Wimbledon has to be a concern,' she admitted before going to have a scan. Muguruza next plays Ashleigh Barty, the unseeded Australian who was leading Camila Giorgi 5-2 and progressed when the Italian became the second injury retirement on the day. Giorgi, who had a thigh strain, fought through three rounds of qualifying, and was trying to struggle through her sixth match of the week. .....»»

Alexis Sanchez sprains ankle, may miss Cameroon clash

MOSCOW (AP) — Alexis Sanchez has sprained his ankle in training and may miss Chile's Confederations Cup opener against Cameroon. Chilean coach Juan Antonio Pizzi says the Arsenal forward hurt his left ankle in training Thursday and has only done light training in the gym since then. Pizzi said the Chile staff is 'optimistic from the images we've seen, but we understand and know that the player still feels pain, and that's why we'll wait until tomorrow to decide if he plays.' Chile could open its Confederations Cup campaign without two leading players. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has not played since sustaining a calf injury in April, and has been ruled out of Sunday's game. 'We don't risk any player who is not in condition to play and who could aggravate an injury,' Pizzi said, when asked if Bravo could return for the South American champion's second game Thursday against Germany. 'We're very careful with the health of our players, and because of that we always act with the responsibility required by our position.' .....»»
