WIMBLEDON, England – Queen Elizabeth II made her first appearance at Wimbledon in 33 years Thursday — applauding Briton Andy Murray as he won his second match and shaking hands with a giddy Serena Williams, who showed off her curtsy.

Wearing a white dress, a bright turquoise coat and matching hat, the 84-year-old queen braved scorching temperatures as she greeted onlookers and met former champions such as Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova before greeting the tennis tournament’s top seeds.

Smiling widely, Williams took a deep curtsy as she met the queen. Her sister Venus Williams, who was wearing a glamorous mauve dress, also appeared to curtsy as she was introduced to the monarch.

Neither Serena nor Roger Federer, who also met the queen, were scheduled to play on Center Court, where the monarch watched tennis from the Royal Box.

Murray, the only British singles player left in the tournament in a year of exceptionally poor showings by the host country, appeared nervous at first but went on to score an easy victory against Jarkko Nieminen of Finland 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

Lawsuit says Carey owes vet for dog care

NEW YORK – A spokeswoman says Mariah Carey’s lawyers haven’t yet seen a lawsuit over pricey veterinary bills for the pop diva’s dogs, but that there’s no question Carey is devoted to her pets.

Carey has four Jack Russell terriers and often Tweets about their escapades.

Veterinarian Cindy Bressler said in a lawsuit filed Wednesday that Carey owes nearly $30,000 for care last year for three of the pooches, Cha-Cha, Dolomite and JJ.

Carey told fans via Twitter that Cha-Cha added a newcomer to the mix this month: a puppy named Jackie Lambchops.

Lohan faces more queries

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – A judge says Lindsay Lohan must answer more questions about an incident that led to her arrest, including details about any drug use at the time.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone ordered Lohan to sit for a two-hour deposition in a civil case filed by a woman who was in a car pursued by the actress.

An attorney for the woman, Tracie Rice, argued Lohan hadn’t answered key questions during a previous deposition.

Lohan’s attorney, Ed McPherson, says the actress will comply with the order but said the questions are “overkill.” He persuaded the judge to allow the deposition to happen after a July 6 hearing on whether Lohan violated her probation for drug and alcohol charges from 2007.

Child-support deal reached

LAS VEGAS – Attorneys for the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death say they’ve reached a deal with Nevada prosecutors on a child support claim, and Dr. Conrad Murray’s state medical license won’t be revoked.

Murray’s license would have been at stake during a Family Court hearing today in Las Vegas. Instead, he won’t have to appear.

Nevada law calls for suspensions of professional licenses for nonpayment of child support.

Murray’s lawyer in Las Vegas says he made a payment Thursday in the back child support case for the mother of Murray’s 12-year-old son in California. Murray argues he needs to be able to work to pay her, and his legal fees.
