SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium — Although Nico Rosberg trimmed rival Lewis Hamilton’s lead in the Formula One title race after winning the Belgian Grand Prix, it was Hamilton who seemed the happier driver on Sunday after turning a back-row start into a third-place finish.
Starting from pole position, Rosberg avoided trouble in an incident-packed race featuring a chaotic first turn, wild overtaking, a heavy crash, safety cars, a red flag and heated language between Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen — the youngest and oldest in the race.

NEW YORK — No Manning. No Brady, for the first four games. No clear-cut favorite in the AFC.
With the regular season about to kick off, it’s anybody’s guess who’ll be the conference’s representative at the Super Bowl in Houston in February.

For retired U.S. Open champ Flavia Pennetta, no regrets

NEW YORK — Flavia Pennetta arrived back at Arthur Ashe Stadium and had one question: “Where is it?”
She couldn’t wait to see the most recent addition to the photos of past champions displayed at the U.S. Open. It’s been almost one year since Pennetta affixed her name to that list, yet as she returned to Flushing Meadows on Friday, that moment felt much longer ago than 12 months.
