MELBOURNE, Australia - Rafael Nadal moved into the fourth round of the Australian Open without dropping a set or showing any signs that a freak knee injury is bothering him. Second-ranked Nadal had a 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 win over Slovakia's Lukas Lacko, the last qualifier in the draw, and will next play either John Isner or Feliciano Lopez. Nadal, who won the 2009 Australian title but has gone out in the quarterfinals due to injuries in the last 2 years, felt a crack and then sharp pain in his right knee while sitting in a chair at his hotel on the weekend and was concerned that he might not be able to play in his opening match.

NEW YORK - It didn't take long to see that Novak Djokovic's right shoulder is feeling fine. Which was good, because he was on court for less than an hour yesterday. Djokovic began his first-round match at the U.S. Open with a 121 mph service winner. Four points later, he closed that game with a 120 mph ace. He whipped forehands exactly where he wanted them. He returned well, too. Playing his first match since Aug. 21, when he quit a match because of a sore and tired shoulder, the top-seeded Djokovic began setting aside any questions about his fitness for Flushing Meadows, building a 6-0, 5-1 lead before qualifier Conor Niland, of Ireland, stopped after 44 minutes.

NEW YORK - Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki came back from a set and a break down last night to beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-1 in a U.S. Open match that lasted 3 hours, 2 minutes. Wozniacki was trailing 4-1 in the second set when she began her comeback and kept alive her hopes of winning her first Grand Slam title. Earlier, Serena Williams fought off the wind, along with brief flurries of effectiveness from her opponent, to advance to the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Ana Ivanovic.

NEW YORK - Serena Williams hit 11 aces Saturday night at the U.S. Open in a 6-2, 6-4 victory over top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki that left Williams one win away from her 14th Grand Slam title. This was Williams' first appearance in the U.S. Open semifinals since 2009, when a footfault call led to a tirade against the referee that cost her match point against Kim Clijsters. Williams never came close to being pushed in this one. She finished with 34 winners, and early in the second set, she led Wozniacki, 20-0, in that category.

MELBOURNE, Australia - The intensity was vintage Rafael Nadal. On the stroke of midnight, he thrust his arms up and punched the air, sealing the victory that sets up the most anticipated semifinal at the Australian Open in quite some time. Roger Federer did his part to put this in place. In the previous match on Rod Laver Arena, he beat 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2, in a quarterfinal marking his 1,000th tour-level match. A Federer-Nadal semifinal had been looming since the draw for the season's first major - the first time the pair have been in the same half at a Grand Slam tournament since 2005.

LONDON - As tumultuous a day as professional tennis has produced in its nearly half-century history ended in the most unexplainable way: a second-round Wimbledon loss by Swiss star Roger Federer at the All England Club. The seven-time Wimbledon champion and 17-time Grand Slam champ shuffled off Centre Court on the fortnight's first Wednesday, his head bowed, his streak of reaching at least the quarterfinals at a record 36 consecutive major tournaments snapped by a man ranked 116th.

MELBOURNE, Australia - There will be no U.S. player in the men's fourth round at the Australian Open for the first time since 1973 - when no Americans were entered.

WHEN SHE'S finished with tennis, Caroline Wozniacki can start a second career writing fiction. While answering questions after her fourth-round win over Latvian Anastasija Sevastova at the Australian Open, Wozniacki said her leg was bandaged because she had been attacked by a kangaroo. The assembled press dutifully reported the incident, which Wozniacki said occurred while she visiting a wildlife sanctuary. As it turns out, Wozniacki's leg may have been bandaged, but it was the media's leg that was being pulled.

PINEHURST, N.C. - It takes a unique mind-set to break off a highly publicized engagement at the beginning of a week and win a golf tournament at the end of the same week. Then again, Rory McIlroy is a unique player. McIlroy announced May 21 that he had broken off his engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, to whom he had become engaged Dec. 31. Four days later, he hoisted the winner's trophy in the BMW PGA Championship in England, his first victory of 2014. The 25-year-old Northern Irishman hopes to employ the same steely focus in the U.S. Open starting Thursday at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club's No. 2 course.

PINEHURST, N.C. - Existing under a microscope can be anything but, well, conventional. Sometimes that difference can even be self-inflicted. Welcome to the world of Rory McIlroy, the former top-ranked golfer, who abruptly broke off his engagement to former No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki late last month, reportedly in a 3-minute phone conversation she at first thought was a joke, reportedly a day after he'd told her how much he loved her,...

TOM SERMANNI could have been forgiven for any pangs of nostalgia when facing his old team. His new players, however, had no similar emotional attachment. Lauren Holiday and Carli Lloyd scored in the first half, and the U.S. women's national team overpowered Australia, 4-0, in San Antonio, giving Sermanni a victory in his first match against his former side. "The reality is as a coach, you have to be detached once the game starts," Sermanni said. "We knew it was going to be a difficult game.

EVER SINCE she was a kid, practicing until midnight with her father, Marion Bartoli went about playing tennis her own way. The two-handed strokes for backhands, forehands, even volleys. The hopping in place and practice swings between points, which help her focus. The unusual setup for serves - no ball-bouncing, arms crossed, right wrist resting on her left thumb before the toss. Whatever works, right? This unique Wimbledon, appropriately enough, produced a unique champion in the ambidextrous Bartoli, the 15th-seeded Frenchwoman who won her first Grand Slam title by beating 23rd-seeded Sabine Lisicki, of Germany on Saturday, 6-1, 6-4, in an error-filled, one-sided final that was far from a classic.

PARIS - Now things could get a little more interesting for Roger Federer. After a pair of straightforward and straight-set victories at the French Open against qualifiers ranked outside the top 150, the 17-time major champion will face a seeded player, France's Julien Benneteau, who not only already beat Federer once this year but also came within two points of upsetting him at Wimbledon, of all places, in 2012. "I think I'm playing OK," Federer said in something of an understatement, considering he has dropped 11 games through six sets so far. "Definitely think the next match is going to be sort of the big test for me, to see exactly where I stand.
