Wozniacki doubtful

TENNIS: The women's draw for the Aussie Open is resembling the march of the walking wounded, with more than a quarter of the top 25 ruled out or injured.

Top seed Caroline Wozniacki joined the list of injured players when she strained her left wrist in her quarter-final defeat to Pole Agnieszka Radwanska at the Sydney International yesterday.

While a scan today cleared the Dane of major damage, she is racing against time to prove her fitness for Monday's start.

Meanwhile, defending Sydney International champion Li Na of China moved into the final with a 1-6 7-5 6-2 over Petra Kvitova.

BOXING: Ireland's John Joe Nevin reckons he will be among the medals contenders in this summer's Olympics in London.

"When I qualified for the last Olympics I was 18-years-old. I was very cocky, you know how teenagers are! Now I'll be one of the big guns, so if I can bring my 'A' game to the ring I can beat anyone," he added.
