Sebastian Janikowski and the Oakland Raiders agreed on a $16 million, four-year deal Tuesday that is the richest contract for a kicker in NFL history, the team said.

Janikowski will be guaranteed $9 million in the deal, a person familiar with the contract said on condition of anonymity. Janikowski was eligible to be an unrestricted free agent.

Janikowski is coming off the best season of his 10-year career. He made 26 of 29 field-goal attempts, with his only misses coming from 45, 57 and 66 yards. He made six kicks of at least 50 yards, including a 61-yarder.

High seeds advance in Dubai

Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki came back from 5-1 down in the second set to beat Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 6-2, 7-6 (2) in the second round of the Dubai Championships in the United Arab Emirates.

Wozniacki, at a career-high world No. 3 ranking, rallied impressively to 5-5, then shot through the tiebreaker. Her next opponent will be Israel's Shahar Peer, who was denied entry into the tournament a year ago because Israel had no diplomatic relations with the Emirates.

Also advancing were defending champion Venus Williams, second-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova, No. 4 Victoria Azarenka, No. 6 Jelena Jankovic and No. 8 Li Na. But 2008 champion Elena Dementieva had to retire because of a right shoulder injury.
