NAPLES, Italy -- Fabio Fognini overcame an injury and tough resistance from James Ward to give Italy a 1-0 lead over Britain on the rain-delayed opening day of their Davis Cup quarter-final Friday. Andy Murrays match against Andreas Seppi was then suspended due to poor light with the British No. 1 leading 6-4, 5-5 after just under two hours of play. The match will resume Saturday morning ahead of the doubles. Fognini was made to struggle against a player ranked 148 places below him before winning 6-4, 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 in more than three hours to preserve his remarkable Davis Cup record on clay. The start was delayed by more than two hours because of rain in Naples. Ward powered into a 3-0 lead as Fognini double-faulted twice in his first service, game but the 13th-ranked Italian fought back by winning four games in succession before taking the opening set. It looked to be a similar story in the second set as Ward again rushed into a 3-0 lead before allowing Fognini back in. But this time it was the Briton who took four games in a row and levelled the match with a drop shot. Fognini had been hampered by a left thigh injury in the buildup to the series and also had heavy taping by his ribs. He had to receive medical treatment before the start of the third set. Fognini broke quickly in the third and maintained the advantage, saving two break points before serving out the set. Ward then seemed to tire as Fognini comfortably took the fourth and final set, sealing the win with a short volley at the net. Murray, who is ranked eighth in the world, was made to work against Seppi before breaking in the seventh game and going on to claim the opening set. Both players struggled with their service game and Murray had to save four set points in an enthralling final game of the day. The two-time Grand Slam champion is looking for his sixth consecutive win against Seppi as Britain attempts to reach the Davis Cup semifinals for the first time since 1981. Italy has not lost at home to Britain since 1926 and will be hoping the vociferous home support can help it reach the final four for the first time in 16 years.

Quintero claims in a motion filed Thursday that his previous requests for the documents have been refused.The documents, Quintero said in court papers, go directly to the heart of the charges against Mr. Collazo and could show how much MLB has influenced his prosecution — allegedly by paying witnesses, buying stolen documents and influencing witness testimony.The full extent of MLBs involvement in the present investigation and the prosecution of Mr. Collazo is yet unknown, Quintero said.MLB said in a statement Friday: We have no comment beyond that there is absolutely no truth to these claims.A three-time AL MVP, Rodriguez served a season-long suspension this year for violating MLBs drug agreement and labour contract. He has admitted to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration he used steroids provided by Biogenesis and its former owwner, Anthony Bosch, according to court documents.ddddddddddddRodriguez is expected to testify against Collazo and others if the trial goes forward as scheduled Feb. 9. Quintero said details about A-Rods immunity deal with prosecutors are important to the defence.Eight other current or former players, including Manny Ramirez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz and Melky Cabrera also have been given immunity.Bosch, who pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing, was given a number of benefits by MLB in exchange for his co-operation. Court documents show these include paying his attorneys fees, protecting him from any player lawsuits and paying for bodyguards at up to $2,400 a day.In his motion, Quintero said evidence has surfaced through discovery provided so far that MLB provided Bosch with other benefits, such as more than $30,500 in child support payments and an undefined consulting job.Also facing trial in February with Collazo is Yuri Sucart, a cousin of Rodriguezs, and others accused of supplying testosterone and human growth hormone to MLB players and other athletes, including minors. The defendants have pleaded not guilty.Prosecutors have said Rodriguez has prominent role in the governments proof against Sucart.___AP Sports Writer Ronald Blum in New York contributed to this report.___Follow Curt Anderson on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Miamicurt wholesale jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
