- Agassi says would be happy for Serena if she usurps wife
By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Andre Agassi says it would be a "beautiful thing to watch" if fellow American Serena Williams goes on to surpass his wife Steffi Graf's professional era record of 22 grand slam singles titles. Williams reached 19 with her Australian Open triumph last month and despite being 33 years old, there is little sign that her powers are waning. "Records are meant to be broken and if Serena does it would be a beautiful thing to watch." Williams is currently third on the all time list, behind Australian Margaret Court's total of 24 and Graf's professional era haul of 22.
- Federer stuns Djokovic in Dubai
Roger Federer claimed the 84th title of his legendary career, kept his nose in front in his personal rivalry with Novak Djokovic, and equalled his best achievement at any tournament by winning the Dubai Open for the seventh time on Saturday. He had to be pleased with what he had done, he reckoned, even if it was the first time that he had lost in his five finals here.
- Hamilton fastest on penultimate day of testing
World champion Lewis Hamilton was fastest on the third day of the final Formula One pre-season test in Barcelona as Mercedes proved they remain well ahead of the chasing pack on Saturday. Hamilton eased to the fastest lap of the day once he changed onto soft tyres, although his time of 1min 23.022sec was nearly three tenths off the quickest time set by teammate Nico Rosberg on Friday. Rosberg will take over the wheel for the final day on Sunday and Hamilton admitted he would have liked to have more laps under his belt heading to the first race of the season in Melbourne after being affected by an illness at the second test last week. Williams were once again the closest challengers to Mercedes as Felipe Massa produced his best time of the testing season, but was still over two tenths down on Hamilton despite being on the faster supersoft tyres.
