Ten facts about the Masters going into the second round at Augusta National Golf Club:
The 18-footer for birdie on the final hole slid by on the left, another chance lost on a day filled with missed opportunities. Rory McIlroy walked off the green and gave his putter a gentle spank, as if to punish it for letting him down when he needed it most.
Lee Westwood's mum walked away from the ninth hole, waving her hand in front of her face on a balmy spring day.
At 14, Tiger Woods was running cross-country and trying to stay on top of his homework. Adam Scott was psyched to finish second against a bunch of 17-year-olds. Rory McIlroy had thoughts of playing in the Masters, but it was the European Young Masters.
It was Sharapova's second career title at Indian Wells, where she first won in 2006. Wozniacki won here in 2011. The women met in a final for the first time; their six other matches came in earlier rounds.
Nadal improved to a career-best 17-1 on the year, including 14 straight match wins. He's won three titles — two on clay while runner-up in another on his favorite surface — since returning from a left knee injury.
Caroline Wozniacki says her boyfriend, top-ranked golfer Rory McIlroy, has improved his fitness level so much that he likes working out even more than she does.
Rory McIlroy offered another apology, a straightforward explanation and a pledge Wednesday that he will never again quit in middle of a round.
McIlroy faced the media for the first time since he abruptly walked off the golf course in the second round of the Honda Classic, telling reporters that his head was not in the right place and then issuing a statement that his sore wisdom tooth made it difficult to concentrate.
In any other sport it wouldn't be an issue.
Pictures of past champions line the walls of the stadium hallways at the Dubai Championships. The women's victors include two-time winner Venus Williams, and two who are back this year, Caroline Wozniacki and defending champ Agnieszka Radwanska.
Sloane Stephens lost in the first round of the Dubai Championship on Monday, the latest setback for the rising American star who reached the Australian Open semifinals.
Serena Williams spent most of the past week downplaying the prospect of returning to the top of the rankings. Then it happened and she couldn't hold back the tears.
The 15-time Grand Slam winner will replace top-ranked Victoria Azarenka in next week's rankings after coming from a set down to beat former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Qatar Open.
“I think I should stick to tennis,” Wozniacki said after the shot plunked into Ike’s Pond.
Something comparable for McIlroy would be substituting as a ball boy on the tennis court, she said.
