Czech mate! Andy Roddick defeated Tomas Berdych in straight sets on Key Biscayne to take his second Sony Ericsson Open. Roddick previously won in 2004 -- but this victory gives him the best record on the tour, 26-4. What's that we hear from Nadal and Federer? Oh, that's right: not an Easter peep.

Not that Roddick will smile about it, mind you. Berdych couldn't handle the American's serve, but he was certainly happy to be there in just his second Masters 1000 final. $295,000 to the runner-up doesn't hurt, either.

A sad Williams sister. You don't see that often, especially because Serena's been pulling out of tournaments for a year and a half now. Venus, however, will probably rise again.

Considering that she's reportedly refusing to make a "show of support" for Tiger's comeback at the Masters, Elin Nordegren Woods' public appearance at the Sony Ericssson on Friday can only be interpreted as a beautiful, glorious bitchslap. We're beginning to love this woman, who brought son Charlie along to watch Andy Roddick beat Rafael Nadal.

Injured Serena Williams was on hand to watch her sister defeat Marion Bartoli to reach the title match. "Yeah, I saw Serena before the match," Bartoli said. "I said to her, 'It's not fair you're dressing up so nicely. I'm going to watch more what you're wearing than the ball.'
