SOCCER

Manuel Locatelli scored two goals and Italy beat Switzerland 3-0 in Rome to advance to the last 16 of the European Championship with a game to spare.

Locatelli’s first goal came following a textbook exchange with Sassuolo teammate Domenico Berardi midway through the first half in Rome. His second came with a long and low shot shortly after the break that left goalkeeper Yann Sommer immobile.

Ciro Immobile added the last goal from long range in the 89th minute.

Italy leads Group A with a six points. Wales is next with four points after earlier beating Turkey 2-0 in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Switzerland has one point and Turkey has zero.

Bale missed from the penalty spot in the 61st minute, but Roberts added a second goal in the final moments of the game.

• Aleksei Miranchuk’s curling shot in first-half stoppage time gave Russia a 1-0 win over Finland in St. Petersburg, Russia, and its first points at the European Championship.

TENNIS

HALLE OPEN: Roger Federer failed to reach the quarterfinals in Halle, Germany for the first time when Félix Auger-Aliassime rallied from a set down to stun the former champion 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the second round.

Federer has won the tournament a record 10 times and was going for his 18th quarterfinal in as many appearances at the grass-court event, but was unable to deal with his young opponent’s change of tactics in the second set. Auger-Aliassime, exactly 19 years younger than Federer, targeted the backhand with his strong serves and converted three break opportunities to win in 1 hour, 45 minutes.

Auger-Aliassime next faces American qualifier Marcos Giron, who rallied to beat Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff 6-7 (1), 6-3, 6-4. Andrey Rublev defeated Australia’s Jordan Thompson 6-4, 6-4, and veteran home favorite Philipp Kohlschreiber beat Corentin Moutet of France 6-4, 7-6 (4).

WIMBLEDON: Former Wimbledon champions Venus Williams and Andy Murray will receive wild cards to compete in the grass-court Grand Slam tournament when it starts in less than two weeks. The men’s and women’s singles winners will each get $2.4 million, a nearly 28% decrease from 2019, although the overall reduction in prize money is 5.2%, the All England Club also announced Wednesday.

Organizers highlighted plans to have a full crowd of 15,000 at Centre Court for the men’s and women’s finals next month, a year after the tournament was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. The tournament begins June 28.

GERMAN OPEN: Madison Keys of the United States upset the top-seeded Aryna Sabalenka 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 to reach the quarterfinals in Berlin.

QUEEN’S CLUB: Wild-card entry Jack Draper pulled off another surprising win, topping Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik 7-6 (5), 7-6 (0) in a second-round matchup at the grass-count event in London.

It was just the second ATP Tour match win for Draper, who previously eliminated third-seeded Italian Jannik Sinner, also in two tiebreakers.
