NEW YORK (AP) -- Andy Murray won the U.S. Open in five grueling sets Monday night to become the first British man since 1936 to capture a Grand Slam title.
Murray beat defending champion Novak Djokovic 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 in his fifth try in the final of a major tournament.
The 25-year-old Scot was reeling going into the decisive set after Djokovic rallied from two sets down to even the match. But Murray broke the Serb's serve in the first game, then broke again to go up 3-0.
When it was finally over after a record 4 hours, 54 minutes full of long, scintillating rallies, Murray crouched to the court with both hands over his face.
Fred Perry won Britain's last Grand Slam men's title 76 years ago at the U.S. Championships, the Open's predecessor.
NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL has devised a temporary five-week schedule for using replacement officials.
A person familiar with the schedule told The Associated Press that the setup is done through Week 5 of the regular season. The regular officials are locked out and replacements worked the preseason and the first week of the regular season.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not made public officiating schedules.
In early June, the league locked out the officials, who are part-time NFL employees, after their collective bargaining agreement expired. The NFL Referees Association and the league met for three days at the beginning of September before talks collapsed.
BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden was suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.
Haden will be eligible to return to the Browns' active roster on Oct. 8. He played in Sunday's season opener against Philadelphia, making an interception and six tackles in Cleveland's 17-16 loss.
He will not be allowed at the team's headquarters and will lose $1.356 million in salary during his suspension.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher says a mistake by the clock operator late in Sunday's last-second loss at Detroit basically gave the Lions an extra timeout that completely changed how the finish played out.
''In essence, Detroit was granted an extra timeout, I guess, if you want to look at it from our perspective,'' Fisher said.
The league office agreed. It's just a bit of consolation for a team coming off a two-win season that took the Lions to the wire on the road in their opening 27-23 loss.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has what the team calls a ''mild concussion,'' and his status for New York's game at Pittsburgh next Sunday was uncertain.
Coach Rex Ryan says Monday that Revis ''seems to be feeling good,'' but adds that the team will always err on the side of caution with head injuries.
MONTREAL (AP) - Professional wrestling commentator Jerry Lawler collapsed during a World Wrestling Entertainment event.
A statement from the WWE said that Lawler suffered a heart attack at the announcers' table and was taken from the Bell Centre to a hospital.
Broadcast partner Michael Cole addressed the television audience and said that the situation is ''serious,'' but that Lawler was breathing on his own.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama running back Jalston Fowler is expected to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Coach Nick Saban said Fowler will have surgery on his left knee ''and is most likely going to be out for the season.'' He didn't elaborate on the nature of the injury.
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulane's athletic director says it's still too early to know the long-term effects of the spinal injury Devon Walker sustained during this weekend's game at Tulsa.
Rick Dickson said during a brief news conference at a Tulsa hospital that Walker is under constant monitoring, care and attention.
Dickson said Walker is alert and responsive.
Walker remains in stable condition in intensive care after undergoing surgery Sunday. He was injured in a head-to-head collision during Saturday's game.
HOUSTON (AP) - Astros owner Jim Crane thinks Roger Clemens' comeback could continue in Houston. That would be news to the 50-year-old right-hander, who doesn't sound too interested in the idea.
Crane said there's a possibility Clemens could pitch this season for the majors' worst team.
''We haven't heard from Roger, so that's still up in the air,'' he said.
The last-place Astros started a weeklong homestand on Monday that includes three games against the Cubs and four against the Phillies. Their only remaining home games after this stretch are against the Pirates and the Cardinals - two teams in postseason contention.
Crane said he would not pitch the seven-time Cy Young Award winner against a contender, which leaves this week as the only option.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy has walked a few steps and is making encouraging progress in his recovery from surgery after getting hit in the head by a line drive last week.
A's trainer Nick Paparesta said that McCarthy seems likely to leave the hospital soon. Paparesta had said two days earlier that McCarthy was still in a ''life-threatening'' situation.
NEW YORK (AP) - As hockey prepared for its first work stoppage since the 2004-05 season was wiped out, the NHL Players Association planned to challenge a lockout before the labor board in Quebec.
A hearing before Alberta's board was canceled the night before when the NHL withdrew, The Canadian Press reported.
The moves, if successful, could force teams to pay players on the Montreal Canadiens, Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers during a work stoppage.
The sport's labor contract expires at midnight Saturday night, and a lockout appears certain. It would be the league's fourth work stoppage since 1992.
Elton Brand, who the Mavs got on a waiver claim from Philadelphia, and free agent signees O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman were among the five additions making their first Dallas appearances Monday with owner Mark Cuban. Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones came in a trade from Indiana and were also there.
MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - Murray State point guard Zaveral ''Zay'' Jackson was suspended by the team after being accused of hitting two people with his car in a Walmart parking lot in southwestern Kentucky.
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie is on indefinite sick leave while his bosses investigate allegations that he mistreated his players during practices.
Athletics department spokesman Blayne Beal said that Gillispie is taking sick days and it was not clear how long he will be out.
The school announced Aug. 31 that it had opened an investigation into alleged mistreatment of players by Gillispie. Earlier that day and hours before he was to meet with athletic director Kirby Hocutt, Gillispie called 911 and was taken to a Lubbock hospital. He told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal he thought he was having a heart attack or a stroke. He released after six days in the hospital.
