Serena Williams ousted in Miami tournament

KEY BISCAYNE — Serena Williams had her 20-match winning streak at the Miami Open end Monday with a 6-7 (3-7), 6-1, 6-2 loss to Svetlana Kuznetsova in the fourth round. Williams sought her ninth event title, fourth in a row. "I did the best I could," she said in a news conference that lasted less than three minutes before she cut it off. "I can't win every match." Kuznetsova, the No. 15 seed, had 18 unforced errors to 55 for Williams. In men's play, No. 2 seed Andy Murray dropped the final five games against No. 26 Grigor Dimitrov in a 6-7 (1-7), 6-4, 6-3 loss. Murray played in the late afternoon but declined to blame the heat after committing 55 unforced errors.
