After apologising for storming off at the Honda Classic and struggling to get to grips with his new set of clubs, it's hardly been a stellar start to the golf season for Rory McIlroy.

But the world No 1 golfer's girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki, has hit some fine form in this steamy photo shoot.

The 22-year-old tennis star, who was beaten by Maria Sharapova in the BNP Paribas Open final last week, has been in solid form on the court this year.

The former world No 1 has teamed up with Danish company JBS to launch her own line of underwear – and posed for a series of raunchy shots to promote her new product.

The new range Wozniacki has launched has been called 'this is me'.

Adjourned: Danish Kaneria will discover the outcome of his case next year

The hearing for Danish Kaneria's appeal against the lifetime ban handed down to him by an England and Wales Cricket Board Disciplinary Panel was today adjourned, with the case expected to resume in the new year.

The adjournment came following legal submissions from both sides in London and a new date for the hearing will be agreed in due course.

Kaneria was given the ban in June for his role in a spot-fixing plot.

The 31-year-old Pakistan leg-spinner was found guilty of 'cajoling and pressurising' former Essex team-mate Mervyn Westfield into accepting cash in return for trying to concede a set number of runs in an over during a Pro 40 match in 2009.

Kaneria denies all involvement in the plot and after the hearing in June he immediately indicated his intention to appeal.

The Pakistan Cricket Board said in
July that he would be suspended from playing in his home country until
the outcome of the appeal was known.

Witnesses are yet to be called in the appeal hearing.

Tottenham are increasingly hopeful they can lure Danish wonderkid Christian Eriksen to White Hart Lane in January.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder, who turned down a chance to join Manchester City last year, is refusing to sign a new contract at Ajax.

Luiz Adriano charged by UEFA over unsporting goal for Shakhtar Donetsk v Nordsjaelland

Charged! Shakhtar striker Adriano hit by UEFA rap over unsporting goal in Denmark

17:46 GMT, 21 November 2012

Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano has been charged by UEFA for 'violation of the principles of conduct' after scoring one of the most controversial
goals the Champions League has seen on Tuesday night.

Adriano prompted widespread condemnation and boos from
the FC Nordsjaelland crowd by netting after an injury to an
opponent as Shakhtar Donetsk reached the last 16 on Tuesday.

The Brazilian bagged a hat-trick in the 5-2 Group E win in the Danish capital but the game turned on an unsavoury episode after 26 minutes.

Seemingly unaware that his team-mate Willian was attempting to pass the ball back to Nordsjaelland's goalkeeper after Morten Nordstrand had receieved treatment, Luiz Adriano raced
clear of the bemused defence, rounded the goalkeeper and slotted the
ball home to make it 1-1.

An attempt by Nordsjaelland to walk the ball into Shakhtar's net to cancel out the goal was stopped by a visiting defender, further enraging the hosts and crowd.

Adriano is accused by UEFA of breaching Article Five of UEFA's disciplinary regulations. His case will be heard by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on Tuesday 27 November.

After the match, Nordsjaelland captain Nicolai Stokholm
said: 'Their striker didn't get it. I looked down at my armband, and there's something about respect –
it has to be said we didn't see much of that.

'We thought that they would give us a goal. Half their team seemed to think so too, but the other half didn't.'

The club's sporting director Jan Laursen, added: 'I hope my boy was in
bed by the time Shakhtar scored a goal of that character – that sort of
thing doesn't belong anywhere.'

That settles it: Shakhtar went on to win 5-2 and secure their place in the last 16

Adriano did little to suggest he was aware of his wrongdoing, and the whole episode drew comparisons with an FA Cup clash between Arsenal and Sheffield United in 1999.

Then, newly-signed Nwankwo Kanu was at the centre of a storm after setting up Marc Overmars when the rest of the players had stopped to allow a throw-in to be played sportingly back to the Blades' goalkeeper, Alan Kelly.

The goal proved to be the match-winner, though Arsenal offered to replay the fixture, a game they promptly won 2-1.

In Denmark, after the controversy
Kasper Lorentzen put the men in red ahead again on the half-hour to the
delight of the local supporters.

But the lead didn't last for long –
Willian scored either side of half-time, while Adriano completed his
hat-trick in the 53rd and 81st minute.

The result means Shakhtar have qualified for the last 16 of the Champions Lague, and a draw in their final group game against Juventus will also see the Italians through at Chelsea's expense.

Football Lab of Arsenal, Manchester United, Real Madrid REVEALED

REVEALED: The Football Lab that Arsenal hope will create a new generation of stars

There was a time when wannabe footballers honed their technique and reactions by kicking a tennis ball against a coal shed or a dustbin.

Today, things have moved on leaps and bounds, with the top clubs investing in the latest technology to gauge their proteges’ potential to within a fraction of an inch or second.

There’s the hi-tech ‘Footbonaut’ at Borussia Dortmund which is fine-tuning Jurgen Klopp’s almost unplayable passing game to perfection.

And Sportsmail can reveal another top-secret weapon used by the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid to keep their stars at the top of their game.

The Football Lab, developed by Danish company Munin Sports, is the world’s first fully interactive training pitch. It is an enclosed patch of Astroturf fitting with the company’s unique m-station PRO rebound boards on each wall and laden with LED tracker lights, loudspeakers and motion sensors.

The player stands in the centre and must pass the ball off whichever rebound board is flashing in the quickest amount of time. It’s a real test of reactions, agility and passing accuracy.

And to add to the space age feel, every movement of player and ball is mapped by the sensors, with the data instantly available to download to an iPhone app.

While the top clubs use the Lab to sharpen the skills of their youth players, it is open to anyone and so the tracking software adds a competitive element between friends and teammates.

Club coaches can, of course, monitor the stats to see which areas can be worked on.

The rebounders can also be used anywhere on the pitch and replicate the random movements of a ball on the field of play. They might be positioned, for example, on the edge of the penalty box in shooting drills to mimic the knock-downs from a tall target man. Or a goalkeeper might throw the ball at the board to test his reflexes.

The m-station PRO is used by Arsenal’s academy players at the club’s Hale End and London Colney training grounds.

Arsenal coach Carl Laraman said: ‘It’s a marvellous piece of equipment. I can use it for different elevations and you can use it as a rebound facility for passing and both defensive and attacking heading.

‘The players can also use it on their own for practice before and after training.’

It is also used at Manchester United for individual practice by first team coaches, and at AC Milan and Real Madrid for academy development.

Gianluca Angelucci, coach at the AC Milan Youth Camp, added: ‘This is a very important step forward and all Italian clubs will definitely benefit from it.

‘It allows you to work with very specific elements, especially when it comes to goalkeeping practice where you need to dive, catch the ball in the air or react on rebounds.’

Wimbledon champions Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen have qualified for next month's ATP World Tour finals.

Liverpool-born Marray, 31, and his Danish partner will play at The O2 after winning at SW19 and guaranteeing themselves a place in the top 20 in the Doubles Team Race to London.

Their triumph at Wimbledon was one of the stories of the Championships – Marray became the first homegrown player to win the men's doubles at the All England Club since 1936, while 29-year-old Nielsen became the first Danish man to win a grand slam title – and Marray is hoping for a similar result when they return to the capital.

'To be able to cap off the season by competing against the world's best doubles teams in front of a home crowd at The O2 in November will be incredible,' Marray told www.atpworldtour.com.

'We had a great run at Wimbledon this summer, so hopefully we can reproduce some of that form in London this November.'

Nielsen said: 'It will be amazing to get the experience of playing at The O2. It's an unbelievable set-up, and an event I never thought I was going to be a part of as a player. So I will enjoy every second and can't wait to get started.'

British duo Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins are currently ninth in the race rankings and could be on the reserve list.

Juan Mata: Chelsea can top last season

We've got players to top last season, insists Chelsea's Mata

Juan Mata has fired a stark warning to Chelsea's rivals, claiming they have the capacity to top last year's historic campaign.

Last season's Champions League win in Munich coupled with their FA Cup triumph leaves the Blues with a tough act to follow.

But Roberto Di Matteo's side have given themselves a healthy platform to go on and exceed last term's accomplishments, as they sit three points clear at the Premier League summit and top their Champions League group after Tuesday night's 4-0 win in against Nordsjaelland.

On target: Mata scored two goals in the win over Nordsjaelland on Tuesday

And Mata, who scored twice in Denmark, is convinced the Stamford Bridge club can improve on last season's achievements.

'Last season is different to this season, last year we won the Champions League and FA Cup, playing as we played,' he said.

'Now I think we can do better, playing even better with Oscar and Eden Hazard or whoever.

'I think we're playing like a mature team. Maybe in Denmark against Nordsjaelland it wasn't the best game but we won 4-0.'

Mata has played an integral role in the club's promising start – scoring four goals, including the winner in last weekend's win at Arsenal.

But the Spain international insists there is more to come, saying: 'Have I played better Yes, I think so.

At the double: Mata scores his second against the Danish side

'I played well against Stoke, then Wolves, then Arsenal and now in Denmark. I'm feeling very well but I want to feel better and improve as well.'

The 25-year-old, who signed a new five-year contract a week and a half ago, added: 'I'm so happy because they gave me more confidence.

'I love this club and I love to play for Chelsea.'So five more years here is great. It's a dream for me.'

Daniel Agger will continue to play through the pain of a fractured kneecap to help Liverpool's Premier League push.

Agger left the field on a stretcher near the end of the Manchester United match after clashing with fellow defender Glen Johnson.

But a scan revealed no serious damage and the Danish centre-back was back for the win over Norwich with just a small crack in his bone.

Agger told the Liverpool Echo: 'I feared the worst when it happened. When I tried to get up the muscle in my knee just didn't work. I felt really unsteady and the medical staff thought I had done my ligaments.

'I thought it was a bad one and that I would be out for months. But, thankfully, it was just a really hard knock to the knee.

'I've got a small fracture in the bone but it's only a minor thing. It's not a problem. I only started training again last Friday but I was fine for the Norwich game.

'I felt really comfortable and I'm enjoying it. I think I deserved a bit of luck after the (injury) problems I've had in the past.'

Anfield manager Brendan Rodgers was full of praise for Agger.

'He didn't train all last week – he's got a little bit of pain in there,' he told the club website.

'He played in the game down at Norwich and did very, very well. He's recovered well now and it's just a management process with Daniel.

'I came into the club and looked closely at his injury record. He's a player who needs managing. He's a good guy and has worked well this week and will be available for the next couple of games.

'He's a real warrior. I am very fortunate here that I have got a group that has that real warrior mentality and he is one of those guys.'

Everton have opened talks over a move for Steven N'Zonzi after failing in an ambitious attempt to land Michael Essien.

David Moyes had hoped to bring Chelsea’s out-of-favour midfielder on a season long-loan but could not agree a move for the Ghanaian.

Everton’s manager has turned his attentions to Blackburn’s N'Zonzi but it remains possible he will make a late attempt to take Liverpool’s Charlie Adam.

Stoke, who have lodged a bid for Adam, have also opened talks about N'Zonzi with the possibility of Wilson Palacios going the other way.

Everton also hope to sign FC Copenhagen left-back Bryan Oviedo after the Danish club confirmed they had received a bid for the Costa Rican.

That deal could be held up by red tape, though, as Oviedo would need to secure a work permit.

Fantasy football 2012

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has been ordered to pay almost 5,000 in fines after he was caught driving without a licence and insurance.

The Denmark international, who was on-loan to Sunderland last season, was pulled over by police in South Tyneside who discovered the 24-year-old was not insured on his 40,000 Audi and had no driving licence.

Bendtner, who was charged with driving without the correct licence, using a vehicle without insurance and two counts of driving a vehicle with a registration mark that does not conform with regulations was found guilty in his absence by magistrates at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court.

Magistrates fined him 4,750 and added six points to his licence.

The 24-year-old Danish international, who has been linked with a move to Spanish side Celta Vigo at the weekend, was also ordered to pay 85 costs.

Bendtner allegedly told police when asked why there was no insurance or proper number plates on his Audi Q7, that he had a ‘friend who sorts that out for me.’

The court heard that the striker had no licence after failing to re-apply for it having receiving a 56-day driving ban for speeding in February.

Rachael Dodsworth, prosecuting, said: ‘It was 6.50pm on May 13 when police stopped the defendant’s silver Audi Q7.

‘There were more than two people in the car and there were no ‘L’ plates.

‘There was no trace of the registration number, and there was no insurance on the car.’

In March, Bendtner was cleared of vandalising cars parked in Stowell Street at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court.

He was initially charged with five counts of criminal damage alongside
Sunderland captain Lee Cattermole.

Cattermole eventually accepted conditional discharges for the 4,168.27 damage caused in the wrecking spree.

The same court banned Bendtner from driving for 56 days after he was caught driving his Porsche 911 at 103mph.

Last year, he was also involved in an incident in a Copenhagen pizzeria after his credit card was declined and he begged for someone else to pay for the takeaway. He later publicly apologized for his behaviour.
