Venus Williams feels like the hometown girl when she plays at Stanford even though she grew up in Southern California and currently resides in Florida. ''It's nice to have that support,'' Williams said after advancing to the Bank of the West quarterfinals Thursday night, beating fourth-seeded Victoria Azarenka 6-4, 7-6 (1). ''It was good to hear the 'oohs' and 'aahs' for both of us,'' the unseeded Williams said.

Two-time major champion Li Na pulled out of the U.S. Open on Thursday because of a knee injury she said has bothered her for several months. The only tennis player from China to win a Grand Slam singles title also withdrew from hard-court tournaments in Montreal and Cincinnati over the next two weeks. The second-ranked Li wrote in a posting on Facebook that she has ''been struggling'' with her knee since March ''and it is just not where I need it to be in order to play at the highest level.'' She also said: ''My medical team has advised me that I need to take some time off to rest my knee.'' Li did not specify which knee, but she played with her right knee taped up at Wimbledon, her most recent tournament. Li won the Australian Open in January for her second major title.

Caroline Wozniacki always feels confident she can outrun her opponent on the tennis court. Wozniacki plans to play a full tournament schedule this fall while fitting in time to train for the New York City Marathon. Golfer Rory McIlroy broke off their engagement in late May, less than a month before Wozniacki decided to prepare for a marathon when she would have been preparing for a wedding. ''Tennis helped me just get through the tough times,'' Wozniacki said Thursday.

Rafael Nadal withdrew Wednesday from U.S. Open tuneups in Toronto and Cincinnati because of a right wrist injury, putting in doubt his status for a title defense at the year's last Grand Slam tournament. The second-ranked Nadal plays left-handed, but he uses a two-handed backhand. He said in a statement issued by the Toronto tournament that he injured himself Tuesday. In a posting on Facebook, Nadal said he is ''disappointed'' that he can't play the next two weeks but adds, ''I expect to be well for the U.S. Open.'' Nadal's manager, Benito Perez-Barbadillo, wrote in an emailed release that the Spaniard was hurt in practice on his home island of Mallorca while getting ready for the North American hard-court circuit.

She won just 32 percent of her second serves, handing Williams a significant advantage.

Serena Williams looked healthy and played sharp in her first tournament since defaulting during a doubles match with sister Venus at Wimbledon. The top-ranked player stopped worrying and started having fun again, beating Karolina Pliskova 7-5, 6-2 in a second round match at the Bank of the West Classic on Wednesday night. At Wimbledon, Williams tried to play through a viral infection that caused her to lose her equilibrium during the doubles match. On Wednesday night, encouraged by a large crowd, Williams fought through a tough first set before she found her legs and took control of the match with a big second set.
