TENNIS

DUBAI CHAMPIONSHIPS: Andy Murray is coming off a bout of shingles, but he looked in good shape during a 6-4, 6-1 first-round victory over Malik Jaziri at Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The top-ranked Murray was playing his first match since being upset by Mischa Zverev in the Australian Open fourth round last month.

Murray said that his mother-in-law was the first to suggest he had shingles, which a doctor confirmed the next day.

Defending champion Stan Wawrinka didn’t survive the first round, falling to Damir Dzhumur 7-6 (4), 6-3.

MEXICAN OPEN: Novak Djokovic beat Martin Klizan 6-3, 7-6 (4) in the opening round at Mexico City.

The win was Djokovic’s first since his shocking loss in the second round of the Australian Open.

SOCCER

OLYMPICS

SPEED SKATNG: U.S. Speedskating will hold the short track Olympic trials in December at the Utah Olympic Ova from Dec. 15-17. That will decide the 12 skaters who will compete in the PyeongChang Games in 2018. Athletes will compete in the 500, 1,000 and 1,500 meters.

HOCKEY

YOUTH: Former Buffalo Sabres player Andrew Peters won’t face charges following an on-ice brawl involving the youth hockey team he coaches.

The Erie County district attorney’s office and Buffalo police began looking into the Saturday fight after video appeared to show Peters reaching across the Buffalo Junior Sabres’ bench and shoving to the ice a player from the Hamilton, Ontario, team.

District Attorney John Flynn said the parents of the teenage player don’t want to pursue criminal charges against Peters, so his office won’t take legal action.

MASTERS: Rory McIlroy says Tiger Woods was in a good place mentally when they had lunch last week and that the next few weeks would go a long way in determining whether the four-time Masters champion shows up at Augusta National to play in the Masters.

“It’s a possibility, for sure,” McIlroy said.
