RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Uruguay's football federation says it plans to appeal a nine-match, four-month ban imposed by FIFA on striker Luis Suarez for biting an opponent. It's the third ban for a biting incident for Suarez who bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay's 1-0 win on Tuesday. BETHESDA, Md. (AP) - Tiger Woods is showing the effects of his 109-day layoff due to back surgery, shooting a 3-over 74 in the opening round of the Quicken Loans National. In his return to competitive play, Woods carded seven bogeys in his opening 12 holes. LONDON (AP) - Top seed Rafael Nadal has advanced at Wimbledon. He was a point away from being down two sets but recovered to beat Lukas Rosal 4-6, 7-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the second round today. Rosol shocked Nadal with a second round upset at the tournament two years ago.
