ROME---Venus Williams lost in
the first round of the Italian Open
tennis tournament to Laura Rob-
son. Now sister Serena will get a
chance to even the score.
Robson, a quickly improving 19-
year-old British player, beat Venus
Williams 6-3, 6-2 yesterday to set
up a second-round match with
The 19-year-old Robson won
the Wimbledon junior title at 14.
At last week s Madrid Open, she
upset fourth-seeded Agnieszka
Radwanska before losing in the
third round to 16th-seeded Ana
Ivanovic in a third-set tiebreaker.
"I just like it on big courts
against these huge players because
I just go out there with nothing
to lose," the 39th-ranked Robson
said. "I can remember seeing
(Venus) play at Wimbledon when
blown away with the speed that
she hit the ball.
Today (yesterday) when she hit
it in the center of the racket it was
basically point over, so I just had
to take my chances."
Both players struggled with the
wind at the Foro Italico, with Rob-
son hitting eight double-faults and
Williams six. However, Williams
errors came at more inopportune
times, with two double-faults in
the final game.
"It s always hard to play high
quality tennis in that wind," Rob-
son said. "I wish it could have been
a higher standard but I m happy
to have won."
Serena, who won the Madrid
title Sunday, watched the match
from the stands.
"(Robson) has a great game," the
younger Williams sister said. "She s
really young, still. She s just so free
and she looks great on the court
and she s so smooth and she s a
lefty, so that just adds a notch to
her whole level.
"I ve never played her before.
I ve always wanted to. So I have
a tough second-round match."
Serena s only title at this clay-
court tournament came in 2002
but if she continues playing the
way she did in Madrid---and in her
previous two tournaments, which
she also won---she ll be difficult
"She is playing probably her
best tennis," Robson said. "So it s
going to be insanely tough but I m
just going to go out there and do
my best." (AP)
BRISBANE---World and Olympic
champion Sally Pearson s prepara-
tions for the world championships
have been hampered by a hamstring
injury that is likely to keep her out
of racing in the 100-metre hurdles
It was reported yesterday that
Pearson hurt her hamstring while
running a relay at a meet in Sri Lanka
on the weekend, aggravating an injury
that sidelined her for the Australian
Australia s head track coach Eric
Hollingsworth says he expects that
26-year-old Pearson will be fit
enough to try to defend her world
title at Moscow in August.
Hollingsworth said: "If we can get
her through a good set of races in
July, there should be no problem from
there on in." (AP)

MONTREAL---The World Anti-
Doping Agency s top officials spent
the weekend honing a new global
code which includes doubling sus-
pensions for some drug cheats.
WADA s executive committee and
foundation board met in Montreal
to review the third draft of the pro-
posed 2015 World Anti-Doping
code, which will come up for
approval at the November 12-15
World Conference on Doping in
Sport in Johannesburg.
WADA revealed last November it
planned to increase bans for serious
violations from two years to four
years and its president, John Fahey,
said the final revision over the
weekend was intended to make the
code shorter and sharper.
Fahey said WADA had received
almost 4,000 individual comments
about the code since starting the
review in November 2011.
"WADA values the input of these
stakeholders and is pleased with
the level of their engagement
throughout the review process,"
Fahey said in a WADA statement.
"The Agency continually seeks to
enhance the framework that sup-
ports the anti-doping system, and
revisions depend on these contri-
As well as the longer sanctions
for athletes caught using prohibited
the proposed new code also defines
punishments in cases involving
coaches and other athlete support
staff among other amendments
with an emphasis on testing and
"Quality WADA-approved testing
programs are needed to ensure that
testing is effective and that sophis-
ticated cheaters are found," Fahey
said. "This will ultimately advance
the fight against doping in sport.
In other matters from the week-
end meeting, WADA decided to
immediately implement a modifi-
cation to increase the threshold level
for marijuana to ensure that athletes
using the substance in competition
will be detected.
The Athlete Committee was also
urging Kenya s government to put
in place an independent inquiry to
investigate the doping allegations
involving some Kenyan athletes.

including harsher penalties
