El Hadary to pay FIFA as ban appeal fails

Posted: 19 Jan 2011 04:19 AM PST

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - Switzerland's supreme court has ordered Egypt goalkeeper Essam El Hadary to pay FIFA 12,000 Swiss francs ($12,500) in legal costs over his failed appeal against a ban for breaking his contract.

The Swiss Federal Tribunal says El Hadary must also pay court costs of 10,000 Swiss francs, in addition to $796,500 compensation previously awarded to former club Al-Ahly by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

El Hadary has lost several rulings at FIFA, CAS and the supreme court since walking out on Al-Ahly midseason to join Swiss club Sion in 2008.

The 38-year-old goalkeeper will complete serving a four-month FIFA suspension next month.

El Hadary can then play for his latest club, Al-Merreikh of Sudan.

Djokovic beats Dodig at Australian Open

Posted: 19 Jan 2011 03:41 AM PST

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Third-seeded Novak Djokovic beat Ivan Dodig 7-5, 6-7 (10), 6-0, 6-2 on Wednesday to advance to the third round of the Australian Open.

Djokovic, who beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2008 final in Melbourne Park for his only Grand Slam title, is in career-best form.

He appeared comfortable all over the court against Croatia's Dodig, who challenged his Serbian rival in the first two sets with a powerful serve and booming baseline shots.

Djokovic answered with his own baseline winners and crosscourt volleys.

Dodig's energy waned after winning the second set tiebreaker, and Djokovic dominated the last two sets, sealing victory with a service winner.
