French Open: Williams, Wozniacki watch Heat win
Updated: 2014-05-31 22:50
PARIS - Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki found a way to while away the time after their quick exits from the French Open: the NBA playoffs.
The WTA's current No. 1 and former No. 1 went from Paris to Miami and attended Game 6 of the Eastern Conference playoffs, seeing the Heat beat the Indiana Pacers 117-92 to return to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year.
After the basketball game Friday night, Wozniacki posted a photo on her Twitter feed showing her and Williams posing with Miami's Greg Oden.
No word yet on whether LeBron James might head to Wimbledon to watch Williams and Wozniacki once his season concludes.
Ivo Karlovic, the 6-foot-11 Croatian best known for beating 2002 Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt in the first round there in 2003, knew the odds were against him heading into his match against 19th-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa at Roland Garros on Saturday.
Karlovic's lower back had been acting up on him Friday to the point that, he told The Associated Press, "I didn't even hit. It was difficult to walk.''
So while he figured beating Anderson was out of the question, Karlovic decided to take "a lot of painkillers'' and at least show up for their third-round match.
"I was hoping, maybe by stroke of God, he would get injured,'' Karlovic said with a chuckle. "But it didn't happen.''
Karlovic gave it a go for one set, but after losing that, he quit.
