Hingis beats Groenefeld in Zurich Open

ZURICH, Switzerland — Martina Hingis, playing in her home country for the first time in six years, defeated Anna-Lena Groenefeld of Germany 6-0, 7-5 Monday in the first round of the Zurich Open.

Hingis, seeded fifth, won this tournament in 2000 but has not competed in the event since.

“I’m returning defending champion,” Hingis joked. “There were a lot of people that I know and friends who came to see the match. It’s always special to play in front of a home crowd.”

» Tim Henman beat Fernando Verdasco 7-5, 6-3 to advance to the second round of the Madrid Masters, while former French Open champions Carlos Moya and Gaston Gaudio both lost. Henman, who needed a wild card to make the main draw, will now face David Ferrer.

Knicks lose Jeffries with broken wrist

NEW YORK — Jared Jeffries, expected to be the Knicks’ starting small forward, could miss the beginning of the regular season because of a broken left wrist.

Jeffries was hurt Friday night against New Jersey in his Knicks debut and didn’t play Saturday night at Philadelphia. He had an MRI exam, which revealed a non-displaced fractured left wrist.

» Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic practiced Monday and pronounced his injured left foot ready to go as he tries to keep his spot in the rotation.

He is facing strong competition for the third-guard spot from rookie Jordan Farmar and Shammond Williams.

» The Miami Heat may be without backup center Michael Doleac for up to three weeks because of a strained right ankle.

Doleac’s availability for the Heat’s season-opener Oct. 31 against Chicago is unknown. He was injured Saturday night in Miami’s 91-81 exhibition loss to Atlanta. X-rays were negative, Doleac said.

» New Jersey Nets guard Eddie House had arthroscopic knee surgery Monday, and the team said there is no timetable for his return.

Doctors removed torn cartilage from his left knee at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
