Japanese automaker Honda is recalling nearly 900,000 vans in the United States for a defect to the fuel pump that could cause a fire. In its notice to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Friday, Honda said no injuries or fires have been reported due the defect, linked to a crack in the fuel pump strainer cover. The cracks, which developed when acidic chemicals and a high temperature caused deterioration, "could lead to a fuel smell being present or to leaking fuel, increasing the risk of fire," Honda said.
Indian Wells (United States) (AFP) - Four-time champion Roger Federer marched into the final of the Indian Wells ATP Masters on Saturday with a masterful 6-3, 6-1 victory over Alexandr Dolgopolov. Federer, the 17-time Grand Slam champion who is seeded seventh here this year, dominated the 31st-ranked Dolgopolov, thwarting the Ukrainian's bid to become just the sixth player to beat both Rafael Nadal and Federer in the same tournament. The Swiss great will play the winner of the second semi-final between world number two and second seed Novak Djokovic and 12th-seeded American John Isner. By reaching the semi-finals, Federer was assured of returning to the top five in the world rankings for the first time since September of 2013.
