Nadal Reveals His Decision to Withdraw at Key Biscayne

Rafael Nadal's knee injury handed Andy Murray a finals place at the Miami Masters. But the Spaniard said that he plans to be ready and fit when his clay season starts in a fortnight.

"Since the beginning of the tournament I have problems, but the thing is growing worse every day," said Nadal. "After the last match, I saw that the situation were going to be complicated to play today."

 

Wozniacki Skips Charleston, But Not Likely to Be at Augustaís Masters

Caroline Wozniacki sounds like she won't be making an appearance at this week's Masters golf event to follow boyfriend Rory McIlroy. Tennis is set to take top priority as the Dane skips the American clay of Charleston and works to get ready for a home appearance in Copenhagen on the WTA from April 9.

"I won't play Charleston. I'll take the week off," Wozniacki said after exiting the Miami tournament, adding: "I'm not sure yet about the Masters. I don't think so, but I'm not sure."

 

Radwanska Credits Her Dad

Agnieszka Radwanska rise to No. 4 in the world did not come rapidly, but in the past eight months she has won five WTA Premier tournaments (all on outdoor hard courts)  including Key Biscayneís Sony Ericson Open on Saturday over Maria Sharapova.

"I think my tennis, it's just, trying to mix it up, everything. I was just, I think, born with that," she told reporters. "Of course my father is coaching me almost all my life, 18 years already. It's pretty long. But when we are practicing, we always try to improve, you know, everything. You know, there's always something to improve.  So it's never been one shot, one thing.  It's just when we practice, we practice everything.  So that's what we were doing all my life pretty much. Everything what I can do on court right now, it's because of my father.  So if I can do something, it's for sure because of him."

 

Sharapova Loses in Consecutive Finals, But She is Not Complaining

Maria Sharapova can't complain about two near-misses after playing and losing back-to-back Masters finals in the US. The LA-based Russian was beaten in Indian Wells and Key Biscayne, where the three-time major champion lost to Victoria Azarenka and Agnieszska Radwanska but is far from dissatisfied with her showing on March hardcourt.

"Obviously I would have loved to be the winner, but just the way it goes."

 

Townsend Leads Juniors in Carson

Reigning Australian Open Junior Champion Taylor Townsend of the United States holds down the top-seeded spot at the USTA International Spring Championships taking place at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. Eight of the ITF world-ranked Top 50 junior girls are competing, including the 15-year-old Townsend, from Stockbridge, Ga.
