Maria Sharapova is ready to get back on the court. The Russian-born athlete said that she attended the Coachella Music and Arts Festival last April during her time off, and learned about many types of drugs. “I am skipping Coachella this year,” she said.
Venus Williams rolled back the years to send world number one Angelique Kerber crashing out of the Miami Open on Wednesday and advance to a semi-final showdown with Britain's Johanna Konta. Williams, at 36 the oldest woman in the field, downed Kerber in straight sets, winning 7-5, 6-3 while Konta fought back to beat Romania's Simon Halep 3-6, 7-6(9/7), 6-2. Both results had the element of surprise about them with Kerber the top seed and Halep the third and in good form, but they set up what should be a fascinating contest on Thursday.
Love may mean nothing on the court, but Novak Djokovic has all the warm and fuzzy feelings about his new multimillion-dollar condo in Miami. The current world number two, 29, recently threw down for one of beachfront tower Eighty Seven Park’s 70 residences, and his new pad has more than enough amenities to nurse him back to health following the elbow injury that kept him from competing in this year’s Miami Open. Djokovic’s 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home is a bright, white dream, boasting a minimalistic design that lets the floor-to-ceiling windows steal the show.
