KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. — Two-time Miami Open champion Victoria Azarenka easily advanced to the second round Wednesday, beating Silvia Soler-Espinosa of Spain 6-1, 6-3.
The 36th-ranked Azarenka, the 2009 and 2011 winner from Belarus, is playing in Miami for the first time since 2012. She missed the 2013 tournament with a right ankle injury and sat out last year with a left foot injury.
“It’s been unfortunate the last couple of years for me, but I love this tournament,” said Azarenka, a two-time Australian Open champion. “I’m just looking forward to build my momentum here again and try to play as many matches as possible.”

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Brook Lopez had 34 points and 10 rebounds and the Brooklyn Nets handed the slumping Charlotte Hornets their fifth loss in their last six games, 91-88 on Wednesday night.
The 7-foot center came into the game on a tear, having scored at least 26 points in each of his last three games, including 31 on Monday night against Boston.
Deron Williams had 10 points, 14 assists and seven rebounds for the Nets, who have won five of their last seven.
Nets forward Thaddeus Young left the game late in the third quarter with a hyperextended knee and did not return. Team officials said X-rays were negative and he will be re-evaluated on Thursday.
Gerald Henderson and Al Jefferson each had 23 points for the Hornets.

Jimmy Henchman, who is currently serving life in prison for drug trafficking, was just sentenced to a second life sentence for the murder of a gang member in 2009.
According to the New York Post, Jimmy Henchman (whose real name is James Rosemond) paid Brian “Slim” McCleod to kill Bloods member Lowell Fletcher because he was affiliated with G-Unit, Rosemond’s rival.
It all started when Tony Yayo threatened Rosemond’s son, who was 14 at the time, and flashed his gun at him for wearing another rival’s shirt. Rosemond swore he would get revenge, and he did. He paid McCleod “with a slab of cocaine worth $30,000″ to handle the deed.

In 2008, Rosemond also confessed to shooting Tupac in 1994 but…
