CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) – The Bobcats have announced they’ll hold their training camp at UNC Asheville’s Kimmel Arena from Oct. 1-6.

Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins said Wednesday the arena is “an ideal place for our players and coaches to prepare for the coming season.”

The 3,200-seat Kimmel Arena opened in November 2011 and is home to the UNC Asheville Bulldogs men’s and women’s basketball teams. This will mark the sixth time in the last eight years the Bobcats have conducted training camp away from Charlotte. The team previously held camp at UNC Wilmington from 2005-08 and in 2010.

UNC Asheville director of athletics Janet Cone says the school is “honored” to host the Bobcats.

The Bobcats open the preseason on Oct. 7 at home against the Washington Wizards.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (AP) – Tony Romo threw for three touchdowns, two to new-found favorite receiver Kevin Ogletree, and the Dallas Cowboys beat the Super Bowl champion New York Giants 24-17 on Wednesday night in the NFL season opener.

Dallas outplayed its division rival nearly all game, reversing its loss to the Giants on New Year’s Day that set up their run to the title last season. Ogletree, the Cowboys’ third wideout, scored on passes of 10 and 40 yards, Miles Austin had a leaping 34-yard score and DeMarco Murray rushed for 129 yards, including a spectacular 48-yard romp in the third quarter.

The replacement officials were not the feared focal point many expected as the game was called without any blatant errors or ugly controversy. Despite the closeness of the final score, it really wasn’t that tight.

NEW YORK (AP) – Maybe Roger Federer got too much time off between U.S. Open matches. This much is certain: He won’t be playing again at this year’s tournament after losing to Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals.

Five-time champion Federer departs Flushing Meadows before the semifinals for the first time since 2003, stunned by the sixth-seeded Berdych 7-6 (1), 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 on Wednesday night.

Federer’s forehand was way off, while the 6-foot-5 Berdych kept pounding serves and groundstrokes right where he wanted them. It was Berdych’s fourth victory in his last seven meetings against Federer, including in the 2010 Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Federer hadn’t competed since Saturday. The man he was supposed to play in the fourth round Monday, Mardy Fish, withdrew because of a health scare.

NEW YORK (AP) – Andy Roddick’s career is over.

The 2003 champion lost to Juan Martin del Potro on Wednesday in four sets in a fourth-round match in the U.S. Open. The 30-year-old Roddick surprised the tennis world last Thursday when he announced that the tournament would be his last.

When it ended with a forehand error at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the American star buried his face in a towel, tears in his eyes as del Potro saluted him.

The seventh-seeded del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champ, won 6-7 (1), 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-4 in a match spread over two days. Rain suspended play Tuesday night one point into a first-set tiebreaker.

Del Potro, who also got off to a slow start a day earlier, looked sluggish in losing the tiebreaker Wednesday. But once he won the second set, the Argentine started to dictate play.
