He withdrew from The Players Championship on Tuesday, and had the surgery in Baltimore a day later.

Turkey taught the European Championship another lesson in fortitude last night to advance to the semifinals with a 3-1 shootout victory over Croatia in Vienna, Austria. The Turks needed a tying goal in injury time of the extra period after a 0-0 draw in regulation, just moments after the Croats seemingly had won it. Semih Sunturk, who later scored in the shootout, got the equalizer from just inside the area off a free kick by goalkeeper Rustu Recber from near midfield. A minute before, Recber's error allowed Ivan Klasnic to score the match's first goal, in the 29th minute of extra time.

After a testy exchange over serves, Serena Williams settled down to defeat Jelena Jankovic of Serbia, 3-6, 6-0, 6-2, and win the Family Circle Cup on Sunday in Charleston, S.C. At the start of the second set, Williams said Jankovic was serving too quickly, before she was ready. During the next changeover, Jankovic asked the chair umpire how long she needed to wait. "Until I'm ready," Williams shot back. Any hard feelings didn't last - Jankovic met Williams with a big smile at the net after the match ended.

PARIS - His 43d consecutive victory complete, Novak Djokovic ripped off his white baseball cap, pivoted to look up at his parents, coach and other supporters in the stands, then let out a yell. It was the sort of visceral reaction one might expect at the conclusion of a taut, tense contest, not the rather routine 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 result the second-seeded Djokovic assembled Sunday at the expense of No. 13 Richard Gasquet in the fourth round of the French Open. "I didn't expect it to be easy, that's for sure," said Serbia's Djokovic, who briefly addressed the crowd in French, drawing laughter and cheers.

After the match, Wozniacki was consoled by her father. She said he told her: "The world still goes on, and we still have the next tournament next week.
