Defending champion Kvitova through to 3rd round in Madrid

By Tales Azzoni, Associated Press MADRID (AP) — Defending champion Petra Kvitova defeated Kristina Mladenovic 6-3, 7-6 (5) to reach the third round of the Madrid Open on Monday. The second-seeded Kvitova outlasted Mladenovic by winning the last three points in the tiebreaker to close out the match in nearly two hours. "I'm glad I won the tiebreak. That is my kind of issue sometimes, but overall it was pretty tight," said Kvitova, who is seeking her fourth Madrid Open title. "I fought hard in the end." She was in control until losing her serve midway through the second set, letting the French qualifier back into the match. "Those two games when I was down 5-4 and 6-5 was very intense on my serve and I'm glad I didn't give her the chance, which was my strength, I think," Kvitova said. Kvitova had seven aces at the "Magic Box" center court en route to her eighth straight win in Madrid. She is the most successful women's player in the tournament with 28 wins and six losses. Her other titles in the Spanish capital came in 2011 and 2015. Mladenovic was the runner-up in Madrid in 2017. Kvitova will next face wild card Sorana Cirstea or former No. 4 Caroline Garcia. In other second round matches, seventh-seeded Kiki Bertens defeated Jelena Ostapenko 6-4, 6-3 to stay on track to make it to her second straight final in Madrid, while eighth-seeded Sloane Stephens got past Victoria Azarenka 6-4, 2-6, 6-2. Ashleigh Barty needed three sets to beat Danielle Collins. On the men's side, Marin Cilic beat Martin Klizan 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (0), while Karen Khachanov edged Jaume Munar 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3. Gael Monfils defeated Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-1, and Richard Gasquet ousted Alejandro Davidovich Fokina to set up a second-round matchup against Roger Federer, who is making his return to clay-court tournaments after two seasons. Three Americans advanced to the second round: Frances Tiafoe beat Nikoloz Basilashvili in three sets, Taylor Fritz got past Grigor Dimitrov in two tiebreakers, and Reilly Opelka defeated Pablo Carreno Busta 7-6 (5), 6-4. Fritz will face top-seeded Novak Djokovic on Tuesday......»»

Wawrinka, Nishikori reaches quarterfinals in Brisbane

JOHN PYE, AP Sports Writer br /> BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — A change of scenery didn't change much about the outcome of Stan Wawrinka's opening match of the season. The U.S. Open champion won his debut match at the Brisbane International tournament on Wednesday, beating Viktor Troicki 7-6 (5), 6-4 to move into the quarterfinals against Kyle Edmund. Wawrinka previously made a habit of winning the title in Chennai to warm up for the Australian Open. From 2014-16, he won the Indian event without dropping a set. At 31, though, he decided it was time for a change. He is seeded second in Brisbane, his main tuneup for the season's first Grand Slam tournament beginning Jan. 16. 'For sure it's a bit different conditions, but I don't think it will change much for the preparation for Australia,' said Wawrinka, who won his first major title at Melbourne Park in 2014. 'When you've been on the tour for so long, to play some new tournaments, it makes you a little bit fresher mentally.' Third-seeded Kei Nishikori was rusty in his season-opening match against Jared Donaldson but found enough to hold off the American qualifier 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. Eighth-seeded David Ferrer didn't make it that far, saving four match points on serve late in the third set before losing to Australian wild-card entry Jordan Thompson 4-6, 7-5, 7-5. Thompson, who won only three of his 13 matches in 2016, is already 2-0 this week and reached his first ATP Tour-level quarterfinal match. Next up is Nishikori. Nishikori, a three-time semifinalist in Brisbane, had a first-round bye and started the second round by racing to a 4-0 lead. But Donaldson responded and won the next six games to take the opening set in less than an hour. After jumping to a 3-0 lead in the second, Nishikori dropped another service game but this time used his experience in pressure situations to calmly regain control. 'I had a great start, and then I had one bad game after 4-0,' Nishikori said. 'I think it's a matter of my concentration ... a mental thing. After that he started playing much better ... and his forehand was on fire. 'It was really close. He had many chance to win a set and win the match, so, I mean, finally, in the last set I started playing like first couple of games and started dominating.' Sixth-seeded Lucas Pouille was trailing Edmund 6-3, 3-1 when he retired from their second-round match because of blisters. A day after becoming the first player born in the 2000s to win a main draw match at an elite WTA event, Destanee Aiava lost to two-time Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 6-3 in the women's second round. 'It's pretty scary (but) I learned a lot out of that match,' said the 16-year-old Aiava, adding that she had gained 'confidence, maybe, in my game and myself, knowing that I do belong here.' Aiava will return to her hometown Melbourne, where she will play an exhibition tournament next week to continue preparations for her first Grand Slam event. She has a wild-card entry for the Australian Open, where she is set to be the first player born this millennium to play a Grand Slam main draw match. Kuznetsova will play French Open champion and fourth-seeded Garbine Muguruza in the quarterfinals. Second-seeded Dominika Cibulkova rallied from a set and a break down to beat Zhang Shuai 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 in her first competitive match since beating No. 1 Angelique Kerber to clinch the season-ending WTA Finals title. No. 8-seeded Roberta Vinci beat Misaki Doi 6-4, 6-2 in another second-round match. .....»»

UST bows out of contention in PBA D-League care of FamilyMart-Enderun

Also-ran FamilyMart-Enderun eliminated Ironcon-UST with a huge 81-74 win, Thursday in the 2019 PBA D-League at JCSGO Gym in Cubao. Fighting for pride, the Titans weathered a huge fourth quarter attack from the Growling Tigers to end their maiden campaign on a high note and finish with a 2-7 slate. "They want to prove something and they accepted their roles for the good of the team," said coach Pipo Noundou. Valandre Chauca carried FamilyMart-Enderun with 31 points on a 5-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc, alongside five rebounds and two assists, while Marvin Hayes just almost tallied a triple-double with his 18 points, 12 boards, and seven assists. The Titans jumped on the Growling Tigers, taking a 25-11 first quarter lead and extending it to 19 numerous times in the third frame. But Ironcon-UST rallied back behind Soulemane Chabi Yo, slicing the deficit to as low as four, 68-7, with 4:57 left. That was when FamilyMart-Enderun went to its starters as it respinded with an 8-0 spurt to grab an 80-68 advantage courtesy of a Hayes lay-up with 1:09 remaining. The Growling Tigers' shock loss sent them out of the playoffs and gifted St. Clare College-Virtual Reality the no. 2 seed, which comes with a twice-to-beat advantage, in the Aspirants Group. Che'Lu Bar and Grill also booked the no. 4 seat in the process. Chabi Yo's effort of 25 points, 14 rebounds, and three blocks went down the drain as Ironcon-UST bowed out of the tourney. Mark Nonoy got 18 points, four assists, and three boards as the Growling Tigers finished sixth due to owning the inferior quotient in the five-way tie. Meanwhile, Valencia City Bukidnon-San Sebastian locked up the top seed in the Foundation Group with a 91-80 win over Diliman College-Gerry's Grill. JM Calma started off hot for the Golden Harvest with his 15 first half points before ending up with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks. RK Ilagan shot a perfect 10-of-10 from the charity stripe to wind up with 23 points, six rebounds, six assists, and three steals while Allyn Bulanadi did it all to finish with 18 points, six boards, four assists, three steals, and three blocks. The win locked the Golden Harvest at no. 1 in the group as they head to the crossover quarterfinals with a twice-to-beat advantage against Che'Lu Bar and Grill on Monday.
