Sport in brief

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport -


Eddie Pep­perell has em­u­lated coun­try­man Lee West­wood and de­cided not to take ad­van­tage of eased quar­an­tine rules in the United States and so grab the chance to play in next week’s USPGA Cham­pi­onship. But another English­man, Paul War­ing, will travel over to Cal­i­for­nia if he re­cov­ers from a back in­jury in time.


Andy Mur­ray and Jo­hanna Konta have said they plan to play at the US Open if it goes ahead as planned in New York next month. Mur­ray, US Open cham­pion in 2012, is to play in the dou­bles as he steps up his re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion from hip surgery. Both play­ers are tak­ing part in the Bat­tle of the Brits Team Ten­nis event this week.


Ken Do­herty’s hopes of reach­ing the Cru­cible for the first time in six years were ended by Mark King af­ter a 6-3 de­feat in the penul­ti­mate round of World Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fy­ing. The 1997 world cham­pion never re­cov­ered af­ter slip­ping 3-1 be­hind at the mid-ses­sion in­ter­val against the former world No 11.
