Tsonga beats Goffin to win World Tennis Tournament final

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) — Jo-Wilfried Tsonga clinched his 13th career title on Sunday, rallying from a set down to beat David Goffin of Belgium 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the final of the World Tennis Tournament. The sixth-seeded Frenchman hit 10 aces and, although he dropped his serve twice, he broke the third-seeded Goffin's serve four times. Tsonga, ranked 14, lost the final here in Rotterdam six years ago. His previous title also came on indoor hardcourts in Metz, France, two years ago. 'I'm really happy. The last couple of months I put in a lot of effort to come back to this level,' Tsonga said. 'It's a huge reward for me and it gives me new expectations for the rest of the year.' The powerful Tsonga changed his approach to play more to his strengths and dictate points more. 'I changed my serve and worked a lot on my backhand and my returns. I also changed my strings. There were many things to improve my game,' he said. 'In the second set, I showed a different mentality on court. I was more aggressive and it made the difference.' He improved to 4-2 overall in career meetings against the 11th-ranked Goffin, who won both of his career titles in 2014. The 31-year-old Tsonga reached the milestone of 400 career wins this week, and victory in the final was his 401st. Goffin, meanwhile, will become the first Belgian man to break into the top 10 when the rankings are published Monday. 'I was a bit tired. I started the final really well, but in the end Jo played better than me,' the 26-year-old Goffin said. 'Of course I'm disappointed, but I played some good tennis.'

FEU hands UE its 32nd straight loss, returns on the winning track

Far Eastern University survived an upset scare from the listless University of the East Red Warriors, 25-21, 21-25, 18-25, 25-18, 15-9, Saturday to get back on the winning track of the 79th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at The Arena in San Juan. The Tamaraws erased the bitter memory of a straight sets loss at the hands of three-peat seeking Ateneo de Manila to improve to 3-1 win-loss record to climb to solo second spot but not after getting a workout. Down 1-2 in the match, the trio of John Paul Bugaoan, Greg Dolor and Peter Quiel spearheaded the comeback of the Morayta-based squad to send the Red Warriors reeling to their fourth straight loss in as many outings. Buagaoan led four other FEU players in double-figures with 17 points from 12 spikes and five kill blocks. Quiel and Dolor had 15 markers each while skipper Richard Solis and Jude Garcia finished with 10 points apiece for the Tams. FEU will have a week’s rest before marching into a marquee battle against National University. Clifford Inoferio and Edward Camposano had 17 and 15 points, respectively, for UE, which dropped its 32nd straight match. The Red Warriors will take on the Blue Eagles Wednesday.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Shane Battier returns to Heat to lead analytics department

em>By Tim Reynolds, Associated Press /em> Shane Battier has returned to the Miami Heat. Battier is now a member of the Heat front office, assuming the newly created role of director of basketball development and analytics. The Heat announced the move Thursday (Friday, PHL time), describing Battier's new job as one where he will develop analytics to evaluate talent — including college players, free agents and members of the existing roster. 'My goal, as is the entire organization's, is to bring another championship back to Miami,' Battier said. Battier played 13 seasons in the NBA, the last three of those in Miami and helped the Heat win championships in 2012 and 2013. He and his family have continued to call South Florida home since, and has maintained ties with the organization. He has been close with Heat managing general partner Micky Arison and CEO Nick Arison since his playing days at Duke, when Nick Arison was the Blue Devils' manager. 'I am thrilled to be joining the front office of the Miami Heat,' Battier said. 'I look forward to working with the Arison family, learning from a Hall of Fame executive in Pat Riley, general manager Andy Elisburg and of course my old coach, Erik Spoelstra.' Battier was enormously popular among fans and teammates in his tenure with the Heat. He was a key part in the second and third championships won by the Heat, and now he'll be asked to help them win a fourth. 'We believe Shane is an incredible example of our Heat program, not only for the present, but also for the future,' said Riley, the Heat president. 'He embodies everything that we are looking for in our players and staff. We feel he will help us tremendously with his experience and knowledge of the game. Shane is an out-of-the-box thinker and will bring a fresh expertise that can help us evolve as a franchise.' The Heat went to the NBA Finals in all three seasons that Battier played in Miami. He won the Twyman-Stokes NBA Teammate of the Year award in 2014 and the Magic Johnson Award for excellence on the court with cooperation with media and fans in 2013, both of those coming during his Heat tenure. He retired with career averages of 8.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists on 44 percent shooting. .....»»

Le Tour de Filipinas 8 kicks off Saturday

The Philippines returns to its spot on the world cycling map anew Saturday when the eighth edition of the Le Tour de Filipinas is flagged off from Legaspi City in Albay to Sorsogon. The Le Tour de Filipinas is the only International Cycling Union (UCI) road race in the country and is the kick off race of the Asia Tour season. Tagaytay City Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino, president of the national sports association for the sport, PhilCycling, acknowledged the importance of the race organized by Ube Media Inc. and presented by Air21. “Again it is an honor for the country through the Le Tour de Filipinas to host this annual UCI-sanctioned race participated by international cyclists,” Tolentino said. “The race not only tests our Filipino riders but to watch the skills of the foreign cyclists and to promote tourism.” This year also marks the second decade since the country hosted its first UCI race in 1996 when the local multi-stage road race was called the Marlboro Tour. Victor Espiritu won that foreign team-laced race as an amateur with Hongkong star Wong Kam Po winning the following year. The Centennial Tour, aptly named to celebrate the country’s 100th year celebration of Independence Day in 1998, saw Warren Davadilla claiming the trophy. But that was to be the last of the Marlboro Tour era following the enforcement of anti-tobacco laws in sports and other advertising platforms. All teams have been accounted for the race that has Petron and UPS as principal sponsors and Philippine Airlines as official airline partner in Legaspi City  with the 75 cyclists warming up on the Albay capital’s roads with the majestic Mayon Volcano as backdrop. Tomorrow, the cyclists will be flagged off at 8 a.m. by Ube Media President Donna May Lina, Legaspi City Mayor Noel Rosal, Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara and PhilCycling Chairman Bert Lina for the 164.49-km Legaspi City to Sorsogon Stage One. Sunday’s Stage Two of the event backed by Advanced Solutions Inc., Cargohaus Inc. CCN Sports Philippines, IWMI, NMM Customs Broker, Phenom Sportswear, UFL Philippines and WARM will cover 177.35 kms from Sorsogon to Daet while Stage Three on Monday is interestingly also 177.35 kms from Sorsogon to Naga City. The 15 teams—13 foreign and two locals—will wrap up their campaign with the long 210-km northward Stage Four from Daet to Lucena City. The Philippine National Team and 7 Eleven Roadbike Philippines will lead the local challenge against foreign squads Kinan Cycling Team (Japan), Team Ukyo (Japan), Bridgrestone Anchor Cycling Team (Japan), Terengganu Cycling Team (Malaysia), LX Pro Cycling Team (South Korea), Uzbekistan National Team, CCN Cycling Team (Laos), Keyi Look Sport Cycling Team (China), United Arab Emirates National Team, Attaque Team Gusto (Chinese Taipei), Kuwait Cartucho.ES (Kuwait) and Sapura Cycling Team (Malaysia).   .....»»

Thompson scores 35 to lead Warriors past Kings, 109-86

em>By Michael Wagaman, Associated Press /em> OAKLAND, Calif. -- Klay Thompson scored 10 of his 35 points during a big third-quarter run and the Golden State Warriors beat the Sacramento Kings 109-86 on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Stephen Curry added 13 points and nine assists, and Kevin Durant had 21 points, seven rebounds and seven assists as the Warriors bounced back from a loss in Denver two nights earlier to head into the All-Star break an NBA-best 47-9. Thompson, Curry and Durant will represent the Western Conference in Sunday's (Monday, PHL time) All-Star Game at New Orleans, along with teammate Draymond Green, who was ejected after picking up consecutive technical fouls in the second quarter. DeMarcus Cousins, who will also play for Golden State coach Steve Kerr and the West, had 13 points and six assists for Sacramento. Matt Barnes added 15 points and Darren Collison scored 14. Golden State looked like a team that could use the break before scoring 22 straight points in the third quarter to pull away. Thompson, who topped 30 points for the fifth time this season, made a pair of three-pointers and had two steals during the spurt. Durant added four points and Curry made a triple, then later lobbed a short pass to JaVale McGee for a dunk. Durant added his own signature dunk in the fourth quarter to extend the margin to 101-69. That was in sharp contrast to how poorly Kerr's team played earlier in the game. The Warriors led for most of the first half before coming unraveled late and giving up seven consecutive points to end the second quarter. Green's ejection was symptomatic of Golden State's sluggish start. He was hit with back-to-back technicals with 35.7 seconds left after being called for a foul on Cousins. The Kings, who beat the Warriors in overtime on Feb. 4 (Feb. 5, PHL time), couldn't capitalize and were outscored 42-15 in the third quarter. strong>TIP-INS /strong> em> strong>Kings: /strong> /em> Sacramento made five three-pointers in the first quarter but went 2-of-15 from beyond the arc after that. Aaron Afflalo started but did not play in the second half due to a hamstring injury. He had four points and two assists. em> strong>Warriors: /strong> /em>Green's ejection was his first of the season. Curry came from behind to block a shot by Sacramento seven-footer Willie Cauley-Stein with 1.9 seconds left in the first quarter. It was only Curry's 10th block of the season. Zaza Pachulia (strained right rotator cuff) and David West (thumb) could rejoin the team for practice Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) when Golden State returns from the break. strong>UP NEXT /strong> em> strong>Kings: /strong> /em>Host the Denver Nuggets on Feb. 23 (Feb. 24, PHL time) in a key matchup between teams currently fighting for eighth place in the West. em> strong>Warriors: /strong> /em>Go for their 10th consecutive win over the Clippers on Feb. 23 (Feb. 24, PHL time) at Oracle Arena.
