Football?Dolphins’ Jordan to apply for reinstatement into NFL
• Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan plans to apply Wednesday to the NFL for reinstatement after sitting out last season for his latest violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. Jordan was the overall No. 3 selection in the 2013 draft but has contributed little so far in his career, and is serving his second suspension under the NFL substance abuse policy. His latest suspension began in April 2015, and he hasn’t missed or failed any drug tests since while undergoing them once or twice a week, Hendrickson said.
UCLA’s McDonald beats OSU’s Torpegaard in final
•? Danielle Collins of Virginia defeated top-seeded Hayley Carter of North Carolina 6-3, 6-2 for her second NCAA women’s tennis national championship, and UCLA’s Mackenzie McDonald upset top-seeded Mikael Torpegaard of Ohio State 6-3, 6-3 in the men’s final in Tulsa, Okla.
Rivals in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Collins and Carter faced each other on May 19 but did not complete their match because Virginia had already clinched a 4-2 team win in the NCAA tourney’s round of 16.
“I knew I was going to have to play my absolute best to beat her,” said Collins. “I feel like it’s harder winning it the second time than it was the first time. It’s pretty sweet to go out of my college career winning a national championship again.”
Collins won her first national title in 2014. She was seeded second, and won the final three games of the first set, before rolling to a 5-1 lead in the second before closing out the match.
McDonald won his first national championship. The sixth-seeded player had a few hours to regroup for the doubles final with teammate Martin Redlicki.
“It feels unbelievable,” said McDonald, the 12th UCLA champion. “I’ve always dreamed of this moment and to actually have the trophy in my hands, it’s pretty surreal.”
Frenchman leads 13 players
qualifying for the U.S. Open
• Gregory Bourdy of France had rounds of 67 and 68 at Walton Heath to lead 13 players who earned spots in the U.S. Open at a qualifier in Surrey, England. Three-time major champion Padraig Harrington seemed certain to join them until a bogey-bogey finish left him 1 shot shy of a playoff.
Bourdy was joined by two Frenchmen, Romain Wattel and Gary Stal. Also getting in was Italian Matteo Manassero, who has fallen to No. 887 in the world.
Five players were left for the final three spots. In a playoff, Max Kieffer holed a bunker shot on the first hole, Soren Hansen made birdie on the second hole and Sebastian Soderberg got the final spot on the fifth extra hole.
The U.S. Open is June 16-19 at Oakmont.
