Elin watches tennis
MIAMI: Tiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, and the couple’s son, Charlie, took in some tennis on Friday, watching Andy Roddick down Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals of the Miami Masters. Woods has attended the tournament in the past to root for his pal, Roger Federer. This year, however, the top-ranked Federer lost in the fourth round, and Woods has been busy polishing his game for next week’s Masters which will be his first tournament since the golf superstar was engulfed in a sex scandal that led to eventual confessions of adultery. Woods’ wife and one-year-old son arrived shortly after the start of Friday’s match. She sat under an awning in club seats near the players’ lounge, Charlie standing on her lap.
Swann held, released
LONDON: England cricketer Graeme Swann was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving, a newspaper said on Saturday. The off-spinner, ranked the second best bowler in the world, was stopped as he returned to his home in the West Bridgford area of Nottingham, central England, said the Daily Mirror. The tabloid said the 31-year-old was stopped round the corner from a police station and about a mile from his home. He was arrested following a roadside breath test and later released on bail, the paper said. Swann told the Daily Mirror he had no comment to make.
Caceres discharged
BUENOS AIRES: Former Argentina international Fernando Caceres left hospital on Friday, five months after being shot in the head during an attempted robbery, La Red radio reported. The 40-year-old former defender, who won 24 caps, was left blinded in one eye in the attack on November 1. Caceres lost the sight in one eye and is deaf in one ear. Caceres was driving in a Buenos Aires suburb when at least four men surrounded his car. He was shot with the bullet just missing his right eyeball. Three suspects were later arrested for the shooting.
