2 years after stabbing, Kvitova into Australian Open final

By Howard Fendrich, Asosciated Press MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Two years ago, Petra Kvitova missed the Australian Open, just weeks after her racket-holding left hand was stabbed by an intruder at her home in the Czech Republic. Two days from now, back at her best during what she calls her "second career," Kvitova will play for the championship at Melbourne Park. Taking control after the court's retractable roof was closed as the temperature soared toward 100 degrees (38 Celsius) Thursday, the No. 7-seeded Kvitova surged to a 7-6 (2), 6-0 semifinal victory over 35th-ranked American Danielle Collins. "It means everything," Kvitova said of reaching her first major final since the December 2016 knife attack that led to hours of surgery on her hand. Kvitova stretched her winning streak to 11 matches and has a chance to rise to No. 1 in the WTA rankings if she can collect her first Australian Open title to go alongside the two she earned at Wimbledon in 2011 and 2014. In Saturday's final, Kvitova will face reigning U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka or 2016 U.S. Open runner-up Karolina Pliskova. It was Pliskova who saved four match points and came back from 5-1 down in the third set to stun Serena Williams in the quarterfinals. Against Collins, a two-time NCAA champion at the University of Virginia who was 0-5 at major tournaments until last week, Kvitova was more aggressive throughout, mixing big lefty forehands and well-timed pushes forward to the tune of a 30-9 edge in total winners. But the key to the outcome might very well have been what happened at 4-all after 35 minutes of action: That's when the decision finally was made to close the 15,000-seat stadium's cover, drawing cheers of approval from broiling spectators. Kvitova probably wanted to applaud, too. "I was happier than the fans that the roof closed," she said afterward. "I like to play indoors. It helped me a little bit." She's made clear over the years she is not a huge fan of playing in stifling heat. Not too many people truly are, of course, but someone like Collins, a 25-year-old from Florida, might be more used to that sort of thing. The match was suspended for about five minutes and when play resumed, it went from being completely even to tilted in Kvitova's favor. She dominated the tiebreaker and the second set. The chair umpire was Carlos Ramos, the official who penalized Williams a game in last year's chaotic U.S. Open final, and Collins got into a couple of testy exchanges with him. First in the tiebreaker, then in the opening game of the second set, Collins protested that Ramos was applying rules differently than umpires had in her earlier matches. Whether or not there was merit to what she was saying, it seemed clear that the back-and-forths with Ramos didn't help Collins......»»

Reinvented legacy: Nazis’ paintings fund foundation for Jews

BERLIN --- When Hilde Schramm inherited several paintings collected by her father, Hitler's chief architect and Armaments Minister Albert Speer, she was only sure of one thing: She didn't want them. Despite determining they probably hadn't been looted from Jews during World War II, she wanted their legacy to somehow benefit others. So she huddled with friends around a rickety green table at her home-office in Berlin and came up with a plan to sell them and use the proceeds to support Jewish women's creative projects in Germany. In 1994, that became the Zurueckgeben foundation, a project for which Schramm is receiving an Obermayer German Jewish History Award on Monday.

Chris Ross finds inner fire to light up scoreboard for Beermen

MANILA, Philippines---Looking flat out devastated when he left Cuneta Astrodome following their opening game against Columbian, Chris Ross had this fire in his eyes when he took on crowd darlings Barangay Ginebra. That couldn't be more evident when his sights aimed for the bucket in the third period of the game. Ross, only five points in the first two frames, waxed hot for 12 more that quarter to help the Beermen erect a comfortable lead heading into the stretch. "I knew I had to be a little more aggressive because Alex and Terrence were out," Ross told the press after San Miguel's 99-91 victory over Ginebra in Sunday's nightcap.

PBA: Wright and Phoenix finally showing maturity

ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal — Phoenix badly wanted maturity to come with their growth as a team, especially after the Fuel Masters somehow botched a twie-to-beat edge as the no. 2 seed to end last season in teh 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup. Early in the 2019 Philippine Cup, it appears that the Fuel Masters have found some of that maturity and are using that to win close games in the All-Filipino. Two games into the new season, Phoenix already has two overtimes. The Fuel Masters won both, allowing them to take over first place so far. “Phoenix of the past would’ve lost that game,” Wright said of their overtime win against TNT Saturday at the Ynares Center here. “After Pogoy hit that shot to tie the game, we would’ve crumbled by then. But we stuck together, we’re becoming more experience and we’re becoming more of a veteran team,” he added. Another great sign for Phoenix has been the team’s conditioning. Also known as a pressing team, the Fuel Masters have shown great endurance despite playing back-to-back overtime games. Phoenix certainly looked like the fresher team during the extra five minutes in separate wins against Meralco and TNT. “I’m just happy we won, because like you said, back-to-back overtime games. We really have to dig down deep in those kind of situations. I’m happy that we looked like the more conditioned team,” Wright said. “We came off an overtime game so we’re much more experienced in that department than they are. Luckily they’re tired towards the end of the game and they were starting to miss their shots. That’s just credit to our strength and conditioning coaches and how we run our practices. We thought we’re in really good shape today,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

ONE: Team Lakay’s Edward Kelly stopped by Christian Lee in 1st round of rematch

JAKARTA, Indonesia---Christian Lee had said he wanted a first-round finish and he stayed true to his word Saturday night. Lee, the former featherweight title contender, made quick work of Filipino Edward Kelly, stopping the Team Lakay veteran at the 2:53 mark of the opening round in ONE: Eternal Glory at Istora Senayan here. Lee went to work from the get-go and easily took down Kelly before getting on a full mount for the ground and pound.

Martin del Rosario on what it’s like kissing his 2 leading men in ‘Born’

  If filming his first onscreen kiss with a girl was already nerve-wracking, what more doing it with men? "I was very nervous, of course. But we were all professional about it," actor Martin del Rosario said of the kissing scenes he shot with his two leading men, Kiko Matos and Akihiro Blanco, for "Born Beautiful"---a spinoff of the internationally acclaimed comedy-drama "Die Beautiful" by Jun Lana. The script, Martin related, required his character---the trans woman mortuary beautician and pageant kontesera Barbs Cordero---to go for the kisses like she "really meant it and wanted it." Martin didn't want to give anything less. "We didn't have any second thoughts. So ...Keep on reading: Martin del Rosario on what it’s like kissing his 2 leading men in ‘Born’.....»»

ONE Championship: Edward Kelly wants to prove that he can beat Christian Lee

Team Lakay featherweight Edward "The Ferocious" Kelly is coming into his rematch against Singaporean star Christian "The Warrior" Lee at ONE: Eternal Glory in Jakarta, Indonesia with a hightened sense of motivation.  While indeed he was victorious in their first fight back in September of 2018, the win didn't come the way Kelly would have wanted.  After landing a slam that was deemed illegal, Lee was disqualified becase Kelly was unable to continue.  Now, the hard-hitting Pinoy striker wants, more than anything, to prove that he can beat Lee without the help of a disqualification.  "A win is a win, but parang walang tamang closure yung laban namin, so gusto ko ipakita na talagang ako dapat yung nanalo sa laban namin," Kelly told the media a day before his highly-anticipated rematch on Saturday night. "Of course, siya din may gustong patunayan, makikita na lang natin sa Saturday kung mag-eeffect yung good gameplan." While their first encounter lasted just a little over two minutes, Kelly says that he was able to take some things away from what he saw from Lee that night. The 34-year old hopes to be able to use those things in their do-over at the Istora Senayan.  "Yung napansin ko nung unang laban namin is aggressive siya, masyado siyang agresibo, and pasok ng pasok," Kelly explained. "Mabilis nga lang yung laban pero at least may nakuha ako na points sa aking pag-ensayo, sana magamit ko yun para ma-kontra yung pagka-explosive niya tsaka yung speed niya sa laban." The 20-year old Lee, who's a former title contender, is coming into this fight having bounced back with a first roudn win over Kazuki Tokudome. Kelly knows that right now, the kid's confidence is riding high, and is banking on the possibility that it's that same confidence that could lead to Lee's downfall.  "Alam ko naman na sky-high yung confidence niya, and I know na parang kokontrahin ko na lang sa isip ko, and yung confidence niya ay pwedeng magpa-talo sa kanya." While largely regarded as the underdog heading into the bout, Kelly says that he prefers to be in that position. That way, the victory becomes a bit sweeter.  "Mas gusto ko pa nga na underdog, kasi mas maganda yung pagka-panalo, yun yung nasa isip ko. Kailangan ko talaga kunin yung panalo, and gagawin ko lahat sa laban na ‘to," he expressed.    Edward Kelly and Christian Lee face off in a highly-anticipated rematch at ONE: Eternal Glory on Saturday, January 19th, 11:00 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

PBA: Kevin Alas sees improvement in NLEX return

Returning NLEX Road Warriors guard Kevin Alas sees that his team and even himself still need fine tuning as the action in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup continues to unravel. Alas, who is playing in his first game since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last March, came off the bench and contributed 12 points and 4 assists in 29 minutes of playing time. However, his side was not able to carve out a win against the gritty Rain or Shine Elasto Painters side, falling 96-87 at the Cuneta Astrodome Friday evening. “It felt good pero syempre I wanted the win sana kasi we've been doing well sa offseason. They were the better team, personally. But sa akin personally it felt good kasi 8-10 months ako nawala,” said Alas. The team also paraded new big man Poy Erram, who added 10 markers and 5 rebounds to the team. Though it may it may not be impressive numbers in Erram's debut for his new squad, the former Ateneo big man sees opportunity, as he stressed improvement of chemistry with one another. Alas also shared that he was almost sleepless in anticipation of his return, as it was comparable his feelings before his own pro debut some few years back. With his return to the squad, Alas knows he still has a lot to improve upon as he will only get better in time. “I felt comfortable naman kanina. Pero siguro yung hangin ko kulang pa kasi iba yung hangin na nakukuha mo sa practice iba eh so kanina I felt kulang na kulang pa yung hangin ko,” he shared.   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
