The weekend after Wimbledon, Andy Murrays Great Britain and Novak Djokovics Serbia will play in the quarterfinals of the Davis Cup, and the important preparations are about to begin. Murrays grandmother will soon be baking shortbread for the British team.Its become one of those silly traditions that I always supply some shortbread for the team, Shirley Erskine, who is in her 80s, told the Wimbledon Diary. I bake some for every tie, though of course its not the sort of thing that players should have in their diet. I always find a way of getting the shortbread to the team, whether or not Roy [her husband] and I are travelling to the tie.A piece of shortbread would be kryptonite for gluten-free Djokovic, who has just opened a vegan restaurant in Monte Carlo. But the British team couldnt survive without the shortbread, which helped fuel their run to last seasons title, Britains first since 1936.One difficulty for away ties -- such as this one, which will be played in Belgrade -- is keeping the shortbread fresh while going through airport security. I always seal up the tin to try to keep the shortbread fresh, but then you have to get the tin through security, said Erskine, who is Judy Murrays mother. You tell them that its just shortbread inside but the tin still has to be opened and then the seal is broken.Tight security no longer a surpriseHow quickly the players have become accustomed to the higher levels of security at this summers Championships. No one at the Aorangi Park practice courts seemed to even take a second glance when some heavily-armed police, with sub-machine guns, passed through on patrol.Quote of the dayWhy 2016 scandals are great for tennisSome might suggest that this has been a trying year for tennis, what with the match-fixing allegations that were made before the Australian Open, and Maria Sharapovas suspension after failing a doping test. But Serena Williams coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, has told the Wimbledon Diary that this has been great for tennis as it shows no one is above the law.Tennis players are human -- they make mistakes and people cheat, said Mouratoglou. They do things that arent allowed. But the good thing is that people are caught.I think there is much less doping and match-fixing in tennis than there is in other sports, for reasons I cant explain. Im just sure of it. Its fine if we catch them. This would be a terrible year for tennis if we knew there were cheaters and we didnt do anything about it.Dry run for BerdychDont expect to run into Tomas Berdych, a former finalist, in the Dog and Fox. Or, indeed, in any other pubs in Wimbledon Village. Do I go to bars? Not really, theres no time, the Czech told the Wimbledon Diary. Thats the last, last, last thing that you look for when youre at a tournament. Cheap NFL Jerseys .

NEW YORK -- Texas coach Shaka Smart does not have much time to try to fix the things that went wrong for his No. 22 Longhorns in a 77-58 loss to Northwestern late Monday night in the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center.The Longhorns (3-1) tip-off at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday against Colorado (3-1) in the consolation game of the tournament. Notre Dame faces Northwestern in the evenings title game.Texas led for only 3:23 against Northwestern and trailed by double digits for the entire second half.The Longhorns shot 48 percent from the line and 37 percent from the floor. They turned the ball over 14 times, were out-rebounded 40-31 and allowed Northwestern to score 18 second-chance points.It was the first time in nearly three years that Northwestern knocked off a Top 25 team.So where does Smart and his coaching staff start?I think the most important thing is to come with great energy and be able to turn the page quickly and what goes into winning this next game, he said. Obviously theres going to be a lot of things on tape that were going to want to practice and do better and get better at through practice, but we dont have that luxury between now and 3:30.Were going to have to get our guys rest tonight, wake up in the morning and talk about what we need to do and work together as a unit to be better that we were tonight.Tevin Mack paced Texas with 18 points.Northwestern set the tone early by opening the game on an 11-0 run en route to a 34-26 halftime lead.The Wildcats opened the first 3:14 of the second half with a big outburst, going on a 10-1 run for a 44-27 cushion.Northwestern closed out the first half on a 9-0 run to take a 34-26 advantage.ddddddddddddScottie Lindsey scored seven points in the spurt, finishing with 13 points in the half.Texas made just nine shots in the half, including five 3-pointers.A 3-pointer from Mack gave the Longhorns a 23-22 lead, their first of the half, with 7:13 remaining.A 20-9 blitz by Texas tied the score at 20 after Northwestern took a sizable early lead.The Wildcats forced six turnovers in the first seven minutes.I thought Northwestern did a great job of starting the game with aggressiveness, said Smart. They got that big lead. For us its an experience that we need to learn from and grow. Theres a lot of things that were going to take from the tape that we can fix and do better with slight adjustments.Earlier Monday, Colorado dropped an 89-83 decision to Notre Dame in the opener of the tournament.The Buffaloes trailed by 15 points at halftime and were able to get as close as four points twice in the final minute, but Notre Dame went 14 for 14 from the free throw line over the final 1:33.Xavier Johnson led the Buffaloes with 23 points, and Derrick White had 20 points and nine assists. .I liked our guys fight to get back. You dig yourself a hole in the first half, against a good team its tough, Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. They made free throws down the stretch when they had to. I knew they (Notre Dame) were a good free-throw shooting team. So its tough to come back on teams like that. We have to fight for 40 minutes, not for 20.The Buffaloes came in allowing 59.3 points per game.
