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.

LIVORNO PLAYERS and fans gathered Sunday at the Italian soccer team's stadium to pay their respects, a day after midfielder Piermario Morosini , 25, collapsed and died after suffering cardiac arrest during a Serie B match at Pescara. A defibrillator was used on the player, who also had his heart massaged, before an ambulance arrived on the field to take him to a hospital where doctors tried unsuccessfully to revive him for about 90 minutes.

PARIS - Apparently, even Roger Federer, with his record 16 Grand Slam titles, was in need of some advice on a wet and windy day at the French Open. Forced off court by two rain delays, and "pushed," as he put it, by a player with a career record below .500, Federer turned to Swiss Davis Cup captain Severin Luthi for words of wisdom during yesterday's breaks. Told to be more aggressive early, then to use more drop shots late, Federer wound up with a 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-4 victory over Alejandro Falla in the second round.

WIMBLEDON, England - The 352 days Serena Williams spent between Grand Slam appearances were filled with health problems and hospitalizations, doubts and depression. Cuts from glass on both feet. One subsequent operation on her right foot, then a second. Clots in her lungs. Surgery to remove a pool of blood under her skin. On and on it went. Finally healthy and back in a major tournament, Williams was overwhelmed by it all at the conclusion of her Wimbledon match on Tuesday. As soon as she snapped off her 13th ace of the afternoon to close an uneven performance in a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 victory over Aravane Rezai of France in the first round, Williams placed her right palm on her chest.

NEW YORK - Knowing full well each match could be his last, Andy Roddick is putting on a show while soaking up every moment along the way. So when he pounded a forehand passing shot to seize a 20-stroke point Sunday, Roddick thrust both arms overhead, motioning to the full house of U.S. Open spectators to make even more noise. Moments later, after hitting a winning volley, Roddick wagged his right index finger while chugging back to the baseline. Channeling his inner Jimmy Connors, Roddick is having a grand ol' time at his retirement party - and he's not done yet. Winning a second consecutive match since announcing the U.S. Open will be the last tournament of his career, 2003 champion Roddick stuck around at least a little longer by getting past 59th-ranked Fabio Fognini of Italy, 7-5, 7-6 (1)

Lancaster's Floyd Landis agreed on Friday to repay donors nearly a half-million dollars that he raised to challenge doping allegations in an agreement with federal prosecutors. If Landis fails to repay donors in three years, federal prosecutors may pursue a single count of wire fraud, exposing him to up to 20 years in jail if convicted. Landis won the Tour de France in 2006 but was stripped of the title after a positive test for synthetic testosterone. After strenuous denials and a protracted legal fight, Landis acknowledged using performance-enhancing substances.
