Waltert breaks three-year drought to repeat history

SWISS 21-year-old Simona Waltert is pretty good at knocking off number one seeds in Lausanne.

Seeds advance in one-sided day of action

IT was a very one-sided day of WTA Masters 1000 action in Miami, as all eight seeds who completed their matches advanced, and only one – Victoria Azarenka, who retired hurt – failed to advance to the fourth round. In that contest, unseeded teenager Linda Fruhvirtova continued her remarkable run after earning a wildcard into […]
