England captain Dylan Hartley will be available for the entire RBS 6 Nations campaign after being given a six-week ban for striking Leinsters Sean OBrien.Hartley appeared before an independent disciplinary hearing in London to be sanctioned for the third red card of his career, received in Northamptons Champions Cup defeat by Leinster on Friday.The length of the suspension means he is free to play from January 23, enabling him to lead England when they open their Six Nations defence against France at Twickenham on February 4.Hartley had only been on the pitch for six minutes as a second-half replacement when he struck OBrien with a swinging right arm from behind, resulting in the Ireland flanker failing a head injury assessment.The thee-man hearing upheld the decision of referee Jerome Garces to issue a red card and found that the offence was at the mid-range of World Rugbys sanctions, selecting a five-week suspension for the offence.Two weeks were added due to Hartleys poor disciplinary record before it was reduced by one week because of his guilty plea.Before this latest red card, Hartley had amassed 54 weeks work of suspensions for offences including biting, gouging and butting and the total for his chequered career now stands at 60 weeks.It is the best possible outcome England could have wished for, realising a substantial lay-off was certain but now able to plan for the Six Nations knowing the skipper for all 13 victories this year will be at the helm right from the start.The Rugby Football Union outlined its position on Tuesday, stating that Hartley had the full backing of Twickenham and head coach Eddie Jones regardless of the outcome of the hearing.I think Dylans got credit in the bank, RFU chief executive Ian Ritchie said. I think most people would say its been a fantastic year. Weve had 13 wins out of 13 and Dylan has made a huge contribution and he should be allowed to continue that.Dylan Hartleys six-week ban means he will be available for Englands entire RBS 6 Nations campaign, but he will miss another large chunk of Northamptons season.He will be sidelined for fixtures against:Leinster, December 17, Champions Cup, Aviva StadiumSale, December 23, Aviva Premiership, Franklins GardensGloucester, January 1, Aviva Premiership, KingsholmBristol, January 7, Aviva Premiership, Franklins GardensCastres, January 13/14/15, Champions Cup, Franklins GardensMontpellier, January 20/21/22, Champions Cup, Altrad Stadium Jimmy Wynn Jersey .

NEW YORK -- Latvian tennis player Anastasija Sevastova wore a Yankees cap to her news conference after she reached her first major quarterfinal.She bought it in Europe, not because shes a baseball fan, but simply because she likes the interlocking NY logo. Turns out, though, that New York is proving a very special place for an athlete who was retired at this time two years ago.In her second big upset of this U.S. Open, Sevastova beat 13th-seeded Johanna Konta 6-4, 7-5 on Sunday to become the first Latvian woman to make the final eight at a Grand Slam since Larisa Savchenko in 1994.I still cannot believe it, she said. Mentally Im spent. Totally spent. But its amazing.Sevastovas previous best showing at a major was the round of 16 in the 2011 Australian Open. But after a series of injuries that drained the fun out of tennis, she retired in 2013.During her break of nearly two years, Sevastova took classes in Austria in leisure management -- studying accounting and marketing in hopes of perhaps going into sports management.When her health improved, she came out of retirement at the start of last season, never expecting shed be making a deep run at a Grand Slam so soon.Im playing better in my second career right now, she said. Im handling pressure sometimes better than before.Shes more mature, both mentally and physically, Sevastova said. And it also helped that I saw that there is life without tennis.As in her second-round upset of third-seeded Garbine Muguruza, Sevastova wobbled under the pressure at first, failing to serve out the match. But as in that victory over the French Open champ, she finally closed out the win with a service break.Sevastova broke Konta seven times in 11 service games.In the end I just stop thinking and I just try to play tennis, Sevastova said.In Kontas second-round match, the Australian Open semifinalist had collapsed to the court with trouble breathing, but she said there werent any significant lingering issues Sunday. Fatigue was a bigger factor -- shes played 18 matches since the end of Wimbledon.Sevastova, whos ranked 448th, was such an unknown coming into the U.ddddddddddddS. Open that initially her picture wasnt included in the official tournament app. She said she wasnt upset because she didnt like the old photo that would have been used. The situation has now been remedied with an updated shot.She describes herself as a C- or D-list celebrity even back home in Latvia, saying Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis is the closest thing to an A-lister there. Perhaps a Knicks cap or one for the Mets -- the baseball team that plays across the street from the U.S. Open -- might have been a more obvious choice, but Sevastova is sticking with the navy and white of the Yankees.Shell next face two-time U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki, on a resurgent run with two wins over top-10 players here after Sundays 6-3, 6-4 victory against eighth-seeded American Madison Keys.Wozniacki, her ranking down to 74th following a series of injuries, hadnt won four matches in a row since March 2015.I know it sounds bad, but honestly, at this point Im like, I really dont care what my ranking is, she said. Because if Im not in the top five, I feel like its not where I want to be, so at that point, whether Im 20 in the world or 100 in the world, it doesnt matter because Im going to play the same people anyway.The main thing is that when Im on court I have to believe in myself. Thats what I care about, that I know that I can do it. I know I can beat anyone. I think it just sucks for some of the other players who have to play me early.Another past U.S. Open finalist, Roberta Vinci, also moved on Sunday. The seventh-seeded Italian topped 99th-ranked Lesia Tsurenko 7-6 (5), 6-2 to reach the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows for the fourth time in five years.Shell face second-seeded Angelique Kerber, who beat two-time Wimbledon champ Petra Kvitova 6-3, 7-5. With Kerber making the quarters, Serena Williams will need to advance to the final to retain the No. 1 ranking.
