Top-seeded Lleyton Hewitt withdrew from the Ordina Open, and No. 2 seed Roger Federer was upset by Sjeng Schalken on Friday at Den Bosch, Netherlands. Hewitt, the world No. 1 from Australia, has a stomach virus and wasn't sure when he'd be fit to play again. Schalken, who defeated Federer, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, will face Spain's Tommy Robredo in the semifinals after Robredo ousted Swiss qualifier Yves Allegro, 6-4, 6-2.

The Clippers are starting to become whole again. The team has been short-handed for weeks in the backcourt, but guards Jamal Crawford, Darren Collison and even J.J. Redick practiced with the Clippers on Thursday. After practice, the Clippers said Collison and Crawford will both play Saturday when they face the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center, but Redick is still not close to returning. Collison missed the last two games with a stomach virus. Crawford, who has been out for five consecutive games and eight of the last nine with a strained left calf, will practice again Friday, giving him another day to get ready.

Rafael Nadal's comeback has been put on hold for a few more weeks -- or perhaps, a couple of months -- following his withdrawal from the Australian Open. But it is not the troublesome left knee preventing him from playing in Melbourne. The Spanish tennis star issued a statement on Friday saying a stomach virus had disrupted his preparation for the first Grand Slam of the year. The event starts Jan. 14. Nadal has been out of action since a second-round loss at Wimbledon in June because of tendinitis in the knee.

Most people, at some point in their lives, will be stricken by the annual winter scourge known as the flu--and now it appears that President Bush has joined their ranks. If, as the traveling White House says, Bush is suffering only a "touch" of the flu, he is among the rare lucky ones. A full-blown case of influenza typically brings full-blown misery: chills, fever, muscle aches and pains, headache, runny nose and extreme fatigue. "It can be a very serious illness," said Dr.

It would have been a natural, Monica Seles against Martina Navratilova for the championship, but it isn't going to happen. Much of the luster was removed from the Matrix Essentials/Evert Cup Tuesday when Navratilova, the two-time defending champion and the world's fourth-ranked women's tennis player, withdrew because of a stomach virus. She was seeded second to Seles, who is No. 1 in the world. Seles has won three of their five meetings.

About 100 people aboard a Disney cruise ship have contracted an unidentified, highly contagious stomach ailment, officials said Friday, as another Caribbean passenger liner underwent intensive cleaning following a similar outbreak. "We can't confirm what it is aboard the Disney ship, or the cause," said Bernadette Burden, spokeswoman of the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

SAN DIEGO — Jamey Wright was sitting in the visiting clubhouse at Petco Park before the Dodgers' season opener when utilityman Adam Kennedy told the reliever to start stretching. Clayton Kershaw was sick. Really sick. "It's not funny on opening day," Wright told him. But Kennedy wasn't kidding. Kershaw made it to the mound to face the San Diego Padres in front of new owner Magic Johnson on Thursday — long enough to spare Wright from making an emergency start but not long enough to provide the bullpen with a day off. With a stomach virus knocking Kershaw out of the game after three scoreless innings, the 5-3 victory required the use of five relievers and a two-run home run in the eighth inning by Matt Kemp.

The Angels lost Thursday because they couldn't see into a blinding sun and because pitcher C.J. Wilson couldn't seem to find home plate. The Chicago White Sox took advantage, using sun-caused misplays and six walks in less than four innings by under-the-weather Angels starter Wilson to earn a 6-1 victory at Angel Stadium. Wilson, battling a stomach virus he said nearly caused him to pass out in the first inning, fell behind, 1-0, in the third on a two-out walk to Paul Konerko and a run-scoring single to right field by A.J. Pierzynski.

Rafael Nadal just can't buy a break. After sitting out seven months of the tennis season because of a knee injury, his long-awaited return has been delayed because of a stomach virus. Nadal was scheduled to play in an exhibition in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on Thursday, but he withdrew on Tuesday because he has a fever and his doctor advised him to rest. "I am very disappointed that I will not be able to compete this year in Abu Dhabi," Nadal said. "I was really excited about returning to play and I always have a wonderful experience at the event and this is the first time I will miss the tournament.

NEW YORK - It was quite a news conference by Maria Sharapova after her 6-2, 6-2 first-round U.S. Open win Monday over Melinda Czink. Sharapova detailed how she had battled a stomach virus after the Olympics. She had tests done because she was in so much stomach pain. "Because of the pain I was having," Sharapova said. "It was really weird. They told me I was fine, not pregnant. I'm like, 'Can I get my money back?' " And there was a rumor Sharapova denied. There had been talk that she was going to marry her fiance,  former Los Angeles Laker Sasha Vujacic, in November in Istanbul.

An outbreak of illness might have more to do with the final results than the actual tennis at the BNP Paribas Open tournament, which is about to move into its second week. In late-in-the-day matches Sunday, third-seeded Petra Kvitova, last year's Wimbledon champion, was ousted by fast-rising American Christina McHale, 2-6, 6-2, 6-3, and said afterward that she had been ill, had taken antibiotics and had "lost a bit of my fitness. " She had started fast, then yielded as McHale didn't crumble --"I just kind of hung in there," McHale said -- and eventually handed McHale a major boost when she double faulted twice to fall behind 5-3 in the final set. Roger Federer went through his opponent, Denis Kudla of the U.S., 6-4, 6-1, and then, looking pale and sounding hoarse, admitted afterward in his news conference that he wasn't feeling well, nor were members of his family.

Reporting from St. Petersburg, Fla. Rookie Tyler Chatwood sat alone in front of his locker Sunday morning wearing a pair of shorts, a red Angels hoodie and a scowl. He was supposed to be nothing more than a spectator for the day's game with Tampa Bay. But after scheduled starter Jered Weaver spent part of the weekend in the hospital with a stomach virus, Chatwood was rushed to the mound to take his place. And a couple of hours later Chatwood's game face had become a look of bewilderment after the Rays scored five times in what was arguably the Angels' most bizarre first inning of the year.
