FRIDAY 2nd May 2014
Novak Djokovic raced into the Monte
Carlo Masters quarterfinals in dis-
patching Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain
6–0, 6–1 in 47 minutes yesterday.
Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal
also had little trouble, beating Italian
Andreas Seppi 6–1, 6–3, while fourth-
seeded Roger Federer shook off a slow
start in a 6–4, 6–1 win against Czech
player Lukas Rosol.
The second-seeded Djokovic won
his second-round opener in 45 minutes
and has yet to be tested this week. He
next faces Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-
Lopez. The top-seeded Nadal has
looked sloppy at times.
“Lost only two games in the first
two matches (here). Can’t be better
than this, for sure,” Djokovic said. “I
am confident on the court. I’m coming
off a great American hard-court sea-
Djokovic sealed the 22-minute first
set with a crisp forehand. Carreno Busta
received loud cheers, clenched his fists
and grinned broadly when he won his
only game for 3–1 in the second.
Djokovic served out, tormenting him
one last time with an exquisite drop
He is aiming for his fifth straight
Masters win. He won at Indian Wells
and Key Biscayne, dominating Nadal
in the latter final to record his third
straight win against him in straight
“I’ve had more time comparing to
last year to practice on the clay courts
and to get my game to the level where
I want it to be,” Djokovic said.
Nadal achieved his 300th win on
clay in beating Seppi. He won this title
for eight straight years until last year
when he lost the final to Djokovic.
“Today I played a little bit better
than yesterday,” Nadal said. “I was play-
ing at a good level.”
He next faces sixth-seeded David
Ferrer, who easily beat Grigor Dimitrov
of Bulgaria 6–4, 6–2, while Federer
will face ninth-seeded Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga. Nadal has a 21–5 career record
against countryman Ferrer, winning ten
of the past 11 meetings.
“David is a tough, tough player on
any surface,” Nadal said. “But here on
clay, always a big challenge.”
Rosol, meanwhile, broke Federer in
the third game and held for 3–1.
“It was a bit rocky in the beginning,”
He broke back with a stinging cross-
court forehand at Rosol’s feet, and then
broke him to love. He clinched the set
when Rosol’s forehand sailed long.
Federer has a 10–4 record against
Tsonga, who beat him in the French
Open quarterfinals last year and in the
Wimbledon quarters in 2011.
“I’ve seen Jo play different kind of
quality matches lately, so not quite sure
he’s going to play, how aggressive, how
passive,” Federer said.
Third-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka
and eighth-seeded Milos Raonic of
Canada also advanced for a quarterfinal
Having taken only 46 minutes to win
his second-round match, Wawrinka
didn’t even need to lift a racket after
Spaniard Nicolas Almagro pulled out
because of pain in his left foot. Raonic
beat Tommy Robredo of Spain 6–3,
Tsonga won 5–7, 6–3, 6–0 against
Fabio Fognini of Italy, who did his best
to spoil the Frenchman’s 29th birthday
with his wild antics, including smashing
rackets and shouting loudly.
In the day’s only upset, Garcia-Lopez
beat fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych of
the Czech Republic 4–6, 6–3, 6–1.
The only other time Garcia-Lopez
reached a Masters last eight was in
Shanghai four years ago, when he lost
to Djokovic, who leads 5–0 in their
KUALA LUMPUR—Determined to end a two-year
title drought, Lee Westwood shot a 7-under 65 yes-
terday to take the lead at storm-affected Malaysian
Westwood had a bogey at his first hole but birdied
four of his closing five to take a one-shot lead ahead
of Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium before play was sus-
pended because of the risk of lightning.
A tropical downpour in the afternoon had previously
halted play for more than an hour, and 45 players
in the 156-man field will have to complete their first
round on Friday.
The 36th-ranked Westwood is coming off a sev-
enth-place finish at the Masters last weekend—his
best so far this year—and is looking to repeat his
Malaysian Open victory from 1997.
“I didn’t make the best of starts bogeying ... the
first hole, but fortunately that didn’t set the tone,”
Westwood said. “I hit it really well and hit it close
a lot. I had to be patient because I was hitting good
putts and they weren’t going in (until) I holed one
from about eight feet on my 16th.”
Colsaerts recovered from a neck injury that forced
him out of the Houston Open earlier this month and
carded a 66. Northern Ireland’s Michael Hoey and
Portugal’s Ricardo Santos were a stroke further back
in the co-sanctioned European and Asian Tour event.
Colsaerts, a former Ryder Cup player who has
slipped to 131st in the world, had eight birdies and
two bogeys in his round.

NEW YORK—The New
York Yankees honoured
Nelson Mandela on
Wednesday during their
of the legacy of Jackie
Robinson, another icon
of social change.
The grandson of South
Africa’s first black pres-
ident, Zondwa Mandela,
and Robinson’s widow,
Rachel, helped unveil a
Mandela’s 1990 speech
at the old Yankee Stadi-
um. It hangs next to the

portrait of Mandela and
“Able to fill the shoes
of our grandfather. That
is not why we are here.
It’s simply symbolic to
the fact that we all make
up a piece of his mag-
nificent work. I and fam-
ily, just like all of you who
are here, are just a cus-
todian of his legacy,”
Zondwa Mandela said
before the ceremony.
“The efforts of the
Robinson family, the
efforts of our grandfather,
should continue to give
us a sense that the efforts
of today are not supposed
to reflect on our experi-
ence today,” he contin-
ued, “but rather that they
are for the lives to follow,
the generations to come.”

Yankees unveil plaque for Mandela
early lead at
Robinson with a replica
of the plaque at home
plate prior to the game.
It reads: “Nelson Man-
dela 1918-2013. Nobel
Peace Prize winner and
global leader whose
timeless efforts disman-
tled apartheid in South
Africa. As President of
his country, he would use
South Africa’s enthusi-
asm for sports as a uni-
fying force for reconcil-
iation. On June 21, 1990,
he made a memorable
visit to the original Yan-
kee Stadium and pro-
claimed, “You know who
I am. I am a Yankee.”
“In words and deeds,
he became an inspira-
tional leader to the world.
