SONOMA, Calif. -- The bright yellow paint scheme of Menards will be a familiar fixture in IndyCar next season as the home improvement store returns to the series with 10 races of sponsorship for Simon Pagenaud.The deal with Team Penske announced Saturday gives Roger Penske three sponsored cars for next season, but ended no speculation about his IndyCar lineup.Penske said he has the funding to field cars for Pagenaud, Will Power and Helio Castroneves next season, but the status of Juan Pablo Montoya and a fourth Penske entry is undetermined. Montoya won the Indianapolis 500 in 2014 for Penske, but lost the championship in the season finale.Penske said discussions regarding a fourth car are ongoing, and that he has not officially decided on bringing back the Colombian. The team owner also wouldnt discuss the potential to add American driver Josef Newgarden as the fourth Penske driver.Hes not available, I dont think, right now, Penske said. When pressed, the team owner only said no comment.Newgarden doesnt become a free agent until the end of this month. Penske did reveal his IndyCar lineup will be determined within the next 60 days.Meanwhile, the possibility exists that John Menard could ultimately move his sponsorship money in NASCAR over to Penske in the future, but it wont be immediate. Menard said his son, Paul, is signed to drive for Richard Childress Racing through 2017 in a deal that has been year-to-year for some time.Paul has a commitment with RCR next year, this doesnt affect any of our NASCAR relationships at all, John Menard said. This is a totally separate thing. Well see how it goes. Paul has reached the stage of his career where hes got to start thinking about what hes going to do post-racing. When you hit 40 and have some kids, it changes your thinking on what your life journey is.Paul Menard, in his 10th full season at the Sprint Cup level, turned 36 last month. His father stressed that Paul Menard is not retiring from racing soon, but indicated he wouldnt mind having him return to Wisconsin to help with the chain, which spans 300 stores in 14 Midwestern states.Make no mistake, though, racing is still very much part of John Menards business and hes thrilled to be back in IndyCar. The billionaire was a team owner and sponsor in the series but walked away after the 2004 season to back his son in NASCAR.John Menard was tired of open wheel racing, both emotionally and financially, when he pulled out and his return has been gradual. Menard came back in a three-race deal with Pagenaud that included 100th Indianapolis 500, and that deal grew to cover five races.Im so glad to be back. There are certain aspects of this that are so fun, NASCAR is fun, too, but its a lot more relentless. This is a little bit more breathing room, Menard said. I certainly found its a lot more pleasurable to be part of Rogers team than it is to try to beat Rogers team.Pagenaud won one race with Menard sponsorship this season, and is on the verge of wrapping up his first IndyCar championship in Sundays season finale. He takes a 43-point lead over teammate Will Power into the race.All of a sudden this gentleman from France just ignited the IndyCar racing world and took off and became a legend in his own time, Menard said of Pagenaud.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- What happened out there?Serena Williams possesses what is arguably the most dominant stoke in the history of womens tennis: a powerful serve that has led her to 22 Grand Slam singles titles and Olympic gold in 2012. But Tuesday night in Rio, just when she needed it most, her serve looked like it belonged to a rank amateur playing a weekly round-robin at the local public courts.Time after time it happened: Her tosses wobbled in the air, and when her racket arm clunked into position it looked like her Wilson racket carried 20 pounds of extra weight. There was one uncertain double fault. Then another. Then, a little while later, another. Five double faults in one game, including one she barely managed to push into the net, leading to a break of serve that led to a three-game run of ungainliness that closed out the match.At the end of this 6-4, 6-3 third-round loss to 21-year-old Elina Svitolina, Williams game had vaporized into the warm Brazilian night. She was trying, but some in the crowd booed as if she wasnt. Others sat stone-faced, eyes wide, shocked at Williams loss of confidence, her 37 unforced errors and the sight of a supreme athlete looking lost on an Olympic stage.Was an injury the cause of it? She dropped out of the Montreal tour stop last month, citing shoulder concerns. But shes not saying, partly because shes not exactly saying much. When the match was done, Williams, the top seed, didnt make herself available to answer questions from the assembled media. Instead, she spoke into a recorder to a United States Tennis Association communications manager, who relayed to the media corps a short string of quotes.Its obviously disappointing but, you know, she played really well, and I think the better player today won, Williams said. It didnt work out the way I wanted to, but at least I was able to make it to Rio.It was awesome. It was fun. But its over now.Uh, yeah. That doesnt exactly give us much. It was Serena being Serena, which is why she is one of the most hot-button champions of our time.Make no mistake, from the start Svitolina dictated the terms of this match. Her forehand was simply dominant. She did not make many unforced errors. Importantly, before Williams meltdown, Svitolina did not back from the fight.The feeling is unreal. I still cant believe this match ended with a win for me, said the Ukrainian, who has risen to No. 20 in the world and is getting coaching help from retired Belgian great Justin Henin.Svitolina spoke of the importance of staying in the moment. How she kept on reminding herself, Dont play Serena Williams, Olympic champion and so many Grand Slams. Just play the ball and go for it.And so we have another stunner. Anotherr top seed down.dddddddddddd The Olympics can be rough ground for the top ranked players. Just ask Roger Federer, who has never won singles gold. Or world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, himself bereft of gold, the loser in a raucous upset Sunday night to Juan Martin del Potro.Part of it is that Olympic tennis is still trying to establish its importance. Motivation among the top players can wane; losing here hurts, but for most its not likely to sting as much as losing in a Grand Slam.This tournament just means more to the lesser-known players like Svitolina. For me, she said, the Olympics is the most special. Win the gold medal here, and she becomes a national hero in her Ukraine, no doubt.Less certain is whats happening with all of pro tennis right now. This match exposed the openings that seem to be spreading through the top of both the mens and womens games in 2016. Serena won Wimbledon but looked uncharacteristically befuddled in the finals of the Australian Open and French Open. Combine those results with Rio -- then consider her age and the upset she suffered in last years US Open semifinals against Italian Roberta Vinci -- and she seems far from a lock for taking Grand Slam No. 23 at next months event in Flushing Meadows.And what of the men? Djokovics upset loss here comes on the heels of being knocked from Wimbledon by journeyman Sam Querrey. With 35-year-old Federer off the tour for the remainder of 2016 because of injury, one has to wonder if theres an opening for someone else to make a sustained run at the top ranking that has been dominated by Djokovic for the past five years.Maybe itll once again be Andy Murray, who looks supremely confident after winning Wimbledon. He had an easy 6-3, 6-1 win Tuesday against Juan Monaco of Argentina. Maybe itll once again be Rafael Nadal, who looked very much his old self, beating Italys Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-3. (Though two matches are not enough to judge someone who has been struggling through a year-long battle with injury and confidence woes.)Maybe itll be someone else. A few young talents are out there. Milos Raonic? The Wimbledon runner-up is one of them, though it would have been nice if hed bothered to show up in Rio. Nick Kyrgios is another. No doubt he has the talent, but his win last week in Atlanta cant cover up the fact that Tennis Australia declined to bring him to the Olympics because of his unpredictably awful behavior.Openings like this at the top havent come often in the most recent era of pro tennis. Then again, neither have performances as ungainly as those by Rios two No. 1-seeded players.
