MELBOURNE, Australia - Li Na used the heat to her advantage and worked No. 2-ranked Maria Sharapova around Rod Laver Arena in a 6-2, 6-2 win on Thursday that put her in the Australian Open final for the second time in 3 years. Sharapova was the heavy favorite after conceding only nine games in her first five matches, a record at the Australian Open since it expanded to a 128-player draw in 1988. But the semifinal started badly for the 25-year-old Russian, serving double-faults to lose the first two points and conceding a break in the first game.

NEW YORK - Facing a break point in the third set of his U.S. Open quarterfinal against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Roger Federer thought back to their last Grand Slam meeting. That came at Wimbledon in late June, when Tsonga upset 16-time major champion Federer in the quarterfinals after dropping the first two sets. Until that loss, Federer was 178-0 when taking a two-set lead at a major tournament. So last night at Flushing Meadows, Federer's mind wandered a bit back to the All England Club.

Hall of Fame baseball catcher Carlton Fisk pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge on Thursday, two months after police found him asleep in his truck in a suburban Chicago cornfield. Fisk, 64, was sentenced to one year of court supervision and must pay $1,250 in court costs. He also must undergo a drug and alcohol evaluation and counseling. Fisk's lawyer, Stephen White , said his client wanted to accept responsibility for what he did. "He stepped up to the plate," White cracked.

PARIS - Chasing a shot, Roger Federer caught his right shoe in the French Open's red clay, twisting that foot awkwardly and tumbling to the ground. Soon the No. 2 seed was in a real rut, in danger of making his earliest exit from a Grand Slam tournament in nine years. Federer regrouped and restored order eventually, coming back from a two-sets-to-one deficit to beat 15th-seeded Gilles Simon of France, 6-1, 4-6, 2-6, 6-2, 6-3, on Sunday in the fourth round to reach his 36th consecutive major quarterfinal.

Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer will meet in their second final in two weeks at the Barcelona Open in Spain. Both cruised through their semifinals Saturday, Nadal beating Ivan Dodig , 6-3, 6-2, and Ferrer topping Nicolas Almagro , 6-3, 6-4. Nadal defeated Ferrer in the Barcelona finals of 2008 and 2009, and in last weekend's final of the Monte Carlo Masters, and leads their career series, 12-4. Nadal's win over Dodig was the 500th of his career, making the 24-year-old the second youngest player after Bjorn Borg to post 500 wins in the Open era. Top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki beat Agnieszka Radwanska , 7-5, 6-3 in Stuttgart, Germany, to advance to the Porsche Grand Prix final.

NEW YORK - David Ferrer needed a midmatch pedicure of sorts. He seemed bothered when his opponent got a midgame medical timeout. He was down a break in the fifth set. In the end, though, the indefatigable Spaniard was barely better, as he usually is when matches go the distance. With his high-energy brand of leg-churning, ball-chasing tennis, the fourth-seeded Ferrer outlasted eighth-seeded Janko Tipsarevic, of Serbia, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4), in 4 hours, 31 minutes Thursday to reach the U.S. Open semifinals for the second time.

PARIS - If Rafael Nadal truly was going to be challenged, if his bid for an unprecedented eighth French Open championship would be slowed even a bit, this might have been the moment. Leading by a set and a break 70 minutes into yesterday's final against David Ferrer, another generally indefatigable Spaniard, Nadal faced four break points in one game. The last was a 31-stroke exchange, the match's longest, capped when Nadal absorbed Ferrer's strong backhand approach and transformed it into a cross-court backhand passing shot.

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.

WITH NONE of his usual rivals standing in the way, David Ferrer finally won a Masters final on his fourth attempt. The fourth-seeded Ferrer beat Polish qualifier Jerzy Janowicz , 6-4, 6-3, Sunday in the Paris Masters final for the biggest win of his career and ATP tour-leading seventh title of the year. He had lost twice to Rafael Nadal and once to Andy Murray in his previous Masters finals - but didn't have to face a Grand Slam winner this time. "I feel the pressure more than him, because I played three times in a Masters final," said Ferrer, 30, of Spain.
