Top-ranked Serena has been sidelined by a knee injury since winning the Australian Open in January. In her absence, Venus has become the woman to beat as she bids for her fourth Miami title and her first since 2001.

The oldest women's quarterfinalist at 29, Venus is the hottest player on the WTA Tour. She has won 14 matches in a row, and two more would give her three consecutive tournament titles for the first time since 2002.

In the men's fourth round, Mardy Fish retired with a sciatic nerve injury trailing Mikhail Youzhny 6-1, 1-0. The injury occurred when Fish took a tumble in the first set, causing discomfort from his back to his calf.

No. 5 Robin Soderling beat No. 9 Fernando Gonzalez 6-0, 6-7 (3), 6-2, and No. 8 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga swept No. 12 Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-2, 6-2.
