SOCCER

MLS: Ismael Tajouri scored two goals and Sean Johnson had five saves to help New York City FC play the New England Revolution to a 2-2 draw at Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Tajouri, 23, who has appeared in four MLS games, has three goals in the last two matches while filling in for the injured David Villa.

FIGURE SKATING

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS: While all of his top competitors fell, Nathan Chen completed six quadruple jumps in the free program at Assago, Italy, to become the first U.S. winner of the men’s title since 2009.

For the rest, it was a fallathon: 14 sprawls, splats and tumbles among five competitors as they attempted quads. There were three falls by silver medalist Shoma Uno of Japan, who matched his Olympic silver, and two by Mikhail Kolyada of Russia, who took bronze.

AUTO RACING

NASCAR: Weather washed out qualifying for the first stop this season at a short track and Martin Truex Jr. will start from the pole for Sunday’s Cup race at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.

There was no qualifying session because of a wintry mix that moved through the area. NASCAR set the Cup field by owner’s points.

The Truck Series race at Martinsville was stalled by weather after 23 laps and will resume Sunday after the Cup Series event. Should the weather be fine, the race would resume about 7 p.m.

TENNIS

MIAMI OPEN: Roger Federer lost his second straight match and the No. 1 ranking when Thanasi Kokkinakis of Australia, a qualifier ranked 175th, rallied for a 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4) upset at Key Biscayne, Florida.

Federer, 36, had been the oldest No. 1 player but will lose that spot to Rafael Nadal when the new rankings come out April 2. “I deserve it after this match,” he said. “That’s how I feel.”

Top-ranked Simona Halep lost a third-round match to Agnieszka Radwanska, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3.

BOXING

EXPLANATION NEEDED: Canelo Alvarez will have to explain how he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs for his May 5 middleweight title rematch with Gennady Golovkin to go forward in Las Vegas.

The Nevada Athletic Commission suspended Alvarez pending the April 10 hearing on two positive tests for Clenbuterol. Alvarez doesn’t have to appear at the hearing but his representatives do.

CYCLING

TOUR OF CATALONIA: Maximilian Schachmann won the sixth stage, which was shortened because of heavy snow and bad weather in the Pyrenees Mountains. Alejandro Valverde maintained his overall lead of 16 seconds ahead of the final stage.
