France choose Lille hard court for Davis Cup final v Belgium

France choose Lille hard court for Davis Cup final v Belgium

France is going back to Lille for the Davis Cup final against Belgium in November and bumped out rugby.

The northern city on the Belgian border was picked over the brand new U Arena in Nanterre, on the outskirts of Paris, the French Tennis Federation said on Tuesday.

France played in Lille at Stade Pierre Mauroy at the weekend, beating Serbia 3-1 to reach the final. That semifinal was on clay; the French will lay a hard court for the final from Nov. 24-26.

Richard Gasquet lost 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 to Denis Istomin in the first round of the Moselle Open on Tuesday, while top-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta withdrew from the tournament with an injury to his left hand.

Organizers said the 10th-ranked Spaniard, who made it to the semifinals at the U.S. Open and was due to play his opening match in Metz on Thursday, had been replaced in the draw by Frenchman Kenny De Schepper.

James Blake testifies about his mistaken arrest

James Blake testifies about his mistaken arrest

Former pro tennis star James Blake testified on Tuesday that a plainclothes police officer wearing a T-shirt and jeans didn't identify himself before throwing him to the ground and handcuffing him in a mistaken arrest in 2015 outside a Manhattan hotel.

"He never said 'NYPD.' He never said 'officer,'" Blake said at a disciplinary trial for Officer James Frascatore. "He never said 'freeze,' like you'd see in the movies."

In his own testimony Frascatore told an administrative judge that once a superior misidentified Blake as a target of a credit card fraud operation, he dashed through traffic across 42nd Street and sneaked up on Blake to keep ''an element of surprise,'' having been warned that the suspects could be armed with knives. He said he waited to tell Blake "police don't move" as he took him down with an authorized "arm bar" maneuver.
