  • Serena sets up clash with French Open nemesis

    By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Serena Williams was a picture of torment for a set and a half on Saturday before finding her range to fend off Elina Svitolina 4-6 6-2 6-0 and set up a fourth round clash with French Open nemesis Garbine Muguruza. Spaniard Muguruza was a fast rising if unheralded 20-year-old before Roland Garros last year but became an overnight sensation by thrashing a lead-footed Williams 6-2 6-2 in the second round on the way to a maiden grand slam quarter-final appearance. Muguruza, seeded 24th in Melbourne, has continued her upward trajectory and like Williams bageled her third round opponent, Timea Bacsinszky, in the third set of their match on Saturday. Williams described her French Open shock as a "good loss".

    'Ashamed' Mourinho vows Chelsea will recover from Cup humiliation

    Jose Mourinho insists Chelsea will quickly recover from their humiliating FA Cup exit against third-tier Bradford because most of his star players missed the stunning fourth round defeat. Mourinho suffered one of the most embarrassing defeats of his career as the Premier League leaders squandered a two-goal lead in their 4-2 loss at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Chelsea's first defeat to lower-league opposition since 2008 ended their bid to win all four of the major trophies on offer this season and left Blues boss Mourinho admitting he was ashamed of the performance. Mourinho believes most of his players should not carry any scars from the Bradford defeat as he made eight changes against the League One side, with Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas only featuring as substitutes and Diego Costa left out of the squad.
