On a long day of tennis in the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, fifth-seeded former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic was among the casualties in matches that finished during daylight hours. She lost in a three-set battle, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, to Maria Kirilenko of Russia. Kirilenko, seeded 15th and getting closer to a top-10 ranking, defeated No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland in her previous match and said afterward, "I can compete, and as you can see, I can beat them.

Reporting from Carlsbad — The La Costa Resort on Thursday resembled a high school graduation, where families cheer for their own despite warnings not to do so. The graduate in this case was Coco Vandeweghe, an 18-year-old just a year removed from high school, making it big for the first time as she took the world's No. 9 player to a third set -- and won. Vandeweghe threw her fist, not her visor, in the air after hitting the winning shot...

Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls was named the NBA's most valuable player on Tuesday. He is the youngest player to receive the honor and joined Michael Jordan as the only Bulls players to win the MVP award. The news was hardly a surprise after Rose had a spectacular season in leading Chicago to the league's best record. In his third NBA season, the dynamic point guard led the Bulls to their best season since the championship era. The 22-year-old Rose got 113 first-place votes from a panel of media voters.

Roger Federer routed No. 5-ranked Robin Soderling , 6-1, 6-1, in the Shanghai Masters quarterfinals on Friday.

Federer and Djokovic will meet Saturday for the 17th time, and the first since their stunning U.S. Open semifinal when Djokovic saved two match points in a five-set victory.

For a change, Venus Williams will get to be the young one. Williams, 31, served seven aces and generally played big, powerful, wise grass-court tennis befitting a five-time Wimbledon champion, in defeating Akgul Amanmuradova of Uzbekistan, 6-3, 6-1, in her opener Monday. For her efforts, Williams earned a second-round match against Japan's Kimiko Date-Krumm. Date-Krumm, 40, became the second-oldest woman to win a Wimbledon match when she beat Britain's Katie O'Brien, 6-0, 7-5. One of the younger American players in the draw had a redemptive performance Monday.

NEW YORK -- Serena Williams hasn't lost a set in this U.S. Open and perhaps not coincidentally her mood has remained tranquil. Williams, 30, who exited the last two U.S. Opens she played after having angry meltdowns on the court, appears on track to win her fourth U.S. Open this year. Williams, seeded fourth, smashed 10th-seeded Italian Sara Errani, 6-1, 6-2, Friday in the semifinals. Williams has lost only 19 games in her first six matches here. Williams ended her semifinal win with her ninth ace and then she blew kisses to the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd.

PARIS -- The woman in black would not be denied. Both victory and a place in the history books lay at the end of her racquet, which she wielded like a deadly weapon. With unerring aim, Maria Sharapova of Russia won the French Open on Saturday, capturing her first title on the crushed red clay and picking up the only major trophy lacking in her collection. Sharapova, 25, defeated Italy's Sara Errani, 6-3, 6-2, in a one-sided match on a blustery Paris afternoon. The Russian's fourth major title made her the sixth female tennis player in the Open era to achieve a career Grand Slam, and she joins Serena Williams as the only other active woman currently on tour who can make the same boast.
