Nick Kyrgios disqualified as he throws chair across court

The news that Serena Williams withdrew from the Italian Open on Tuesday due to what the Associated Press describes as "an old left knee injury" is sobering. It's apparently the same injury (or at least the same knee) that caused her to withdraw from her last tournament, the Miami Open. It's puzzling that neither Williams, nor her team, nor a medical professional has thus far described this injury in any kind of detail, so we have no idea how serious it is. But this certainly jeopardizes her chances at the French Open -- if she plays at all.

In his absence, No. 4 Roger Federer advances to Sunday's final, where he will attempt to capture a record sixth title at the BNP Paribas Open. "I warmed up today and I felt that my knee was not good to compete at the level I needed to compete, to play semifinals of this event," Nadal said in a press conference Saturday morning. "It's tough for me to accept all these things that I'm going through in my career. Sometimes I feel sad because I feel always in a disadvantage compared with all my opponents ... I'm just gonna keep going and keep doing the things that work well for me. I will try to be always positive and grateful for all the things tennis has given to me. I feel fortunate for all the things that I did in this life and in the world of tennis."

"I tried to warm up and my left Achilles was very painful since a couple days," Monfils said. "I cannot compete 100 percent tonight.

Serena Williams is out at Indian Wells. One game into the second set of her third-round match against Garbine Muguruza, Williams retired from the match with a viral illness. "Before the match, I did not feel great and then it just got worse with every second; extreme dizziness and extreme fatigue," the 23-time Grand Slam champ said in quotes provided by the tournament's media director. Williams won the opening three games Sunday, but then dropped the next seven before retiring. "By the score, it might have looked like I started well, but I was not feeling at all well physically," Williams said. "I will focus on getting better and start preparing for Miami."

After her second-round win over Victoria Azarenka at the BNP Paribas Open Friday night, Serena Williams was asked — as a woman who's fought for pay equality in her sport — what message she has for the women of the USWNT, who filed a gender discrimination lawsuit Friday against the U.S. Soccer Federation. "I know that the pay discrepancy [in soccer] is ludicrous," Williams said. "It's a battle. It's a fight. You know, we have had some incredible pioneers in our sport that stood up in the '70s and said, ‘We're going to get paid what the men get paid.' I think at some point, in every sport, you have to have those pioneers, and maybe it's the time for soccer. I'm playing because someone else stood up, and so what they are doing right now is hopefully for the future of women's soccer."
