When the ball whizzed past Serena Williams for an ace late in Sunday’s match, the subdued crowd suddenly erupted with a roar. Williams said she was tempted to join the applause. Fifteen-year-old Californian CiCi Bellis lasted only 41 minutes against Williams, losing 6-1, 6-1 in the third round at the Miami Open. ”It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, I’m so happy to win this match,”’ said Williams, 33.

Serena Williams punctuated points Saturday with theatrics worthy of a Grand Slam final. In other words, Williams appeared to be 100 percent. Showing no lingering effects from a recent knee injury, the seven-time Key Biscayne champion won her opening match at the Miami Open on Saturday, beating Monica Niculescu 6-3, 6-1. The match was the first for Williams since she withdrew before the semifinals at Indian Wells last week, citing a right knee problem.

Precocious amateur CiCi Bellis says she’s ready to take on the best of the pros – Serena Williams. Bellis, a 15-year-old American who made a big splash at last year’s U.S. Open, advanced Friday to a potential third-round match against Williams by beating Zarina Diyas 6-2, 6-1. Williams’ second-round match Friday night against Monica Niculescu was postponed until Saturday because of rain. ”It’s going to be really fun,” Bellis said.

To win Wimbledon a few weeks later was like a dream.” The 28-year-old Nadal will be joined by the defending champion Grigor Dimitrov, US Open winner Marin Cilic, 2014 Australian Open victor Stan Wawrinka and World No.4 Andy Murray in this year’s draw.

American tennis player Wayne Odesnik was banned Wednesday for 15 years after a second doping violation, a sanction that essentially ends his career and was widely applauded by several top players. The International Tennis Federation said the 29-year-old Odesnik tested positive for several banned substances, including steroids, during tests in December and January. ”Players and athletes should know if they cheat, they get caught,” second-ranked Roger Federer said from California. ”I’m all for a clean sport, and that’s why you’ve got to catch those guys who don’t do the things they are supposed to be doing.” Odesnik was first sanctioned in 2010 for the possession of human growth hormone.

Renovation work at Roland Garros on hold (Yahoo Sports)

The planned renovation of Roland Garros was on hold after Paris city council allowed a new study of the land use on Wednesday. Supported by local residents and environmentalists at the city council, a new project offers an alternative to the controversial expansion that is scheduled to be completed in 2017. The botanical garden’s 19th century greenhouses, a few hundred meters from Court Philippe Chatrier, host a large variety of tropical and local flowers. The Roland Garros plans have been controversial from the start, after the French Tennis Federation decided five years ago to keep the clay-court major there and renovate the existing site, rather than moving the tournament.
