First Published Mar 26 2014 10:14 pm • Last Updated Mar 27 2014 05:14 pm

TENNIS • Roger Federer squandered a big lead and lost to No. 20-seeded Kei Nishikori 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 Wednesday night in the quarterfinals of the Sony Open in Key Biscayne, Fla. Federer was up a service break twice in the second set but couldn’t close out the victory. He lost serve five times and committed 39 unforced errors. Nishikori’s opponent Friday will be three-time champion Novak Djokovic, who benefited from an erroneous call in the pivotal game to beat Andy Murray 7-5, 6-3. Li Na became the first Chinese woman to reach the Key Biscayne semis when she beat Caroline Wozniacki 7-5, 7-5. Li’s opponent Thursday night will be Dominika Cibulkova, who erased three match points in the second set to beat Agnieszka Radwanska 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3. Six-time champion Serena Williams will play five-time runner-up Maria Sharapova in the other women’s semifinal. Williams has beaten Sharapova 14 consecutive times.
