NEW YORK (AP) — Top seed Novak Djokovic (JOH'-koh-vihch), fourth seed Rafael Nadal, and No. 5 Milos Raonic (MEE'-lohs ROW'-nihch) were among Monday's U.S. Open winners on the men's side, with No. 13 Richard Gasquet (gas-KAY') the highest seed to drop his opening-round match. Djokovic shook off a sore arm to win in four sets, and Nadal won despite a heavy bandage that protected his achy wrist. American John Isner advanced after dropping the first two sets of his match.

NEW YORK (AP) — Second seed Angelique Kerber and No. 3 Garbine Muguruza (gahr-BEEN'-yuh muh-guh-ROO'-thuh) advanced to the second round of the U.S. Open yesterday, as did seventh seed Roberta Vinci and No. 9 Svetlana Kuznetsova (kooz-NET'-soh-vah). No. 12 Dominika Cibulkova (see-bul-KOH'-vah) and No. 14 Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIH'-toh-vah) also moved into the Round 2, but Monica Puig (pweeg) was ousted in the first round just two weeks after winning the Olympic tournament.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Trevor Siemian (SIHM'-ee-ihn) has been named the Denver Broncos' starting quarterback over rookie Paxton Lynch and veteran Mark Sanchez. Siemian has taken just one NFL snap and wasn't a regular starter at Northwestern before he was selected in the seventh round of last year's draft. However, Siemian had the most experience in coach Gary Kubiak's West Coast offense and showed a lot of progress in the offseason.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers finally have their No. 1 draft pick in the fold, signing defensive end Joey Bosa (BOH'-suh) to a four-year contract. The deal ends Bosa's month-long holdout and comes days after the Chargers announced they were pulling their offer off the table. The Ohio State product was the third overall selection in this year's draft.

MIAMI (AP) — Chris Bosh has released a video on Snapchat of him going through a non-contact workout that included some shooting and dribbling, an indication he plans to try playing for the Miami Heat this season. Bosh has sat out the end of the last two seasons because of blood clots, leaving his NBA career in doubt. It's unknown if Bosh has been medically cleared to resume full workouts.
