Bets probe as tennis ace retires hurt TENNIS authorities are looking into a match involving US Open finalist Caroline Wozniacki that apparently sparked punters to pile money on her opponent, who was on the verge of losing in straight sets. Wozniacki, a 19-year-old Dane ranked sixth in the world, retired from the first round match at the Luxembourg Open with a hamstring injury on Tuesday (above) while leading Anne Kremer of Luxembourg 7-5, 5-0.

WTA spokesman Neil Robinson said the Tennis Integrity Unit was aware of the case. Lewis is right on the Button LEWIS HAMILTON has warned Jenson Button to find calmness as he adjusts to being F1s new world champion. Hamilton, whose reign came to an end on Sunday when Button finished fifth in Brazil, said today: Becoming world champion is a strange and unreal feeling. Its all too much to take in at once. My only advice for Jenson would be to let it sink in, and to enjoy it. Its all about resetting your balance, finding calmness and refocusing. Hell go to Abu Dhabi with that weight off his shoulders. FRY SLAMS BRAWN REPORTS: PAGE 40 ARSENE WENGER today insisted Arsenal will end their trophy drought this season. Speaking at the clubs Annual General Meeting at Emirates Stadium this morning, the Gunners boss told concerned shareholders that his team are ready to fulfil their potential and win their first silverware since the 2005 FA Cup. I know we havent won a trophy for four years but we were very close and I believe that this year the team will do it, said the Frenchman, who received a standing ovation to mark his 60th birthday. Despite Tuesdays disappointing 1-1 draw against Alkmaar in the Champions League, Wenger added: When I say that, it is not to please you, it is because I am really convinced of it. I believe that the fans who turn up at the gate know we will go for it. We are in October and we know it will be very tight -- it will come down to how resilient, consistent, intelligent and united we are until the end. There will be periods when it will be difficult but we have to show our strengths. I believe we have developed the team in the last four of five years with a tremendous amount of training to develop them how we want. I believe a team is easier to develop if they grow up inside the club, from 16 or even younger because they learn to love the club and what it represents. Its not just about pumping money into the team. There is a magic in our sport and our club. This season we are ready to go for it in the Premier League, the Champions League and, of course, in the cups as well. BY JAMES GOLDMAN LIVERPOOL KOP TERRY BLAST JOHN TERRY led Chelsea to a thumping 4-0 win over Atletico Madrid last night -- and then joined the growing list of Liver- pool critics. With Rafa Benitezs side hop- ing to end a four-game losing streak against Manchester United without injured stars Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres on Sunday, Terry said: When Stevie and Torres get injured they seem to be very short in the squad theyve got. Were very fortunate at Chel- sea. Since Roman Abramovich came, weve got a lot of strength in depth in the squad -- like with Salomon Kalou scoring twice last night with Didier Drogba being out (suspended). Peoplesaidwewouldstruggle without Didier, but we didnt. If youtakeTorresoutof their team, who do they bring in? Its difficult. We have players that are not here only to make up the num- bers, but players who are fight- ing and working hard every day intrainingtocomeinandreally prove themselves. Salomon seems to always come in and do well. Didierknowsthattheplayers behind him are working hard and wanting his place, the same goes for Nico (Anelka). It gives the manager a real problem.
