ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) -- Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is due to make another appearance in court in the murder case against him.
 
A probable cause hearing for Hernandez is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Attleboro District Court. He has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death last month of Odin Lloyd.
 
Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd's killing because he was upset at him for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub a few days earlier. Hernandez's lawyers say the case against him is circumstantial and he wants to clear his name.
 
Hernandez is being held without bail at a county jail.
 
Two of Hernandez's associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, also are facing charges in connection with the case.

    Heading into the U.S. Open, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have won 36 of the past 38 Grand Slam titles, a stretch dating to the 2005 French Open. Nowadays, there seems to be a growing sense — or hope, maybe — among the best of the rest on the men's tennis tour that the quartet might be more vulnerable than ever.

But even those who were on the team last year still have to try out.
