LOOK: Blackwater Elite line-up for East Asia Super League Terrific 12 tournament

Looking to take the next step in being a true PBA contender, Blackwater is ready to rock for a return trip to Macau to play in the East Asia Super League Terrific 12 tournament. The Elite had a strong showing in the Super 8 tournament last year and now, Blackwater is looking to once again use the Macau invitational to boost its campaign in the Governors’ Cup. [Related: TERRIFIC 12: Blackwater seeks more growth in return to Macau] Blackwater will play with the team that had a breakout tournament in the recently-concluded Commissioner’s Cup. Veterans Mike Digregorio, Mac Belo, and Allein Maliksi will lead the team while rookies Ray Parks, Abu Tratter, and Paul Desiderio will have their first international exposure as Elites. As for imports, Blackwater will bring back the hulking Alex Stepheson. Stepheson helped lead the Elite’s uprising in the Commissioner’s Cup but his stint ended earl after he came into contact with stomach ailments. Also playing as import for Blackwater is Aaron Fuller, who had two previous stints with NLEX in the PBA. Fuller will now suit up for the Elite for the Terrific 12 and the upcoming Governors’ Cup. Blackwater is in a tough group in Macau as the Elite draw Japan’s Chiba Jets and South Korea’s Seoul SK Knights.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Barty upset in Cincy semifinals, misses top spot for US Open

By Joe Kay, Associated Press MASON, Ohio (AP) — Ashleigh Barty's chance to move back to No. 1 was only one victory away. At the end of an up-and-down week, she didn't have another comeback left. Barty lost to Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-2, 6-4 in the semifinals of the Western & Southern Open on Saturday, adding to the tournament's week of upsets and injuries. The women's bracket has a lot questions with New York just around the corner. No. 1 isn't one of them. Barty's seven-week run atop the field ended when Naomi Osaka edged ahead of her in the latest ranking. A victory Saturday would have moved Barty back ahead for the U.S. Open. Instead, she dropped the opening set for the third straight match and this time, there was no digging out. "A week that we battled through," Barty said. "I think at times I played some good stuff. At times, I played some pretty awful stuff." Which will it be for Barty at the Open? And will Osaka be in good enough shape to defend her title? Osaka dropped out of her semifinal match Friday with discomfort in her left knee that caused her worry. She still plans to play in New York, but it's unclear whether the knee will be a problem. And then there's Serena Williams, who retired in the finals at Toronto last Sunday because of back spasms. She also withdrew from Cincinnati before her first match, but stuck around to cheer sister Venus until her loss in the quarterfinals. For Barty, it was another instance of a slow start leaving her trying to dig out. This time, a resurgent Kuznetsova gave her no openings, knocking off a top-five player for the second time this week to reach her first final of the season. "Sveta was unreal today," Barty said. It's been awhile since her play has been described that way. The 153rd-ranked player is recovering from seven-month layoff because of a knee injury. Playing in her ninth event of the season, she got her game together, winning her first Premier-level semifinal since 2017 at Madrid. "Well, sometimes in life it's like this," Kuznetsova said. "It's like really small things change everything. Definitely it's different momentum I have now." She'll face Madison Keys , who beat Sofia Kenin 7-5, 6-4 with the help of 14 aces. Keys ended her streak of failing to make it past the second round of her last three tournaments, reaching the final in Cincinnati for the first time. In the men's bracket, David Goffin reached his first Masters 1000 final by beating Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-4 . Goffin also is on an upswing after falling to No. 33 in the ATP rankings on June 10, his lowest since September 2014. "Of course, it was a tough period there," Goffin said. "I was coming back from injuries. I had some trouble with my confidence. I couldn't find my rhythm, my game. So it's great now. I'm feeling great. I'm back at my best tennis." Defending champion Novak Djokovic was scheduled for an evening match against Daniil Medvedev. The men's bracket also took several notable hits throughout the week. Originally billed as a reunion of the Big Four — Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray together for the first time since January — it quickly lost its luster. Nadal dropped out after winning the Rogers Cup, citing fatigue. Murray played singles for the first time since hip surgery in January and lost his opening match. And Federer, the seven-time champion, failed to reach the weekend, losing in the quarterfinals......»»

Foton activates Laure, replaces injured Ortiz

Foton has activated Eya Laure as replacement for injured Maika Ortiz in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference. The University of Sto. Tomas hotshot will debut on Tuesday against Marinerang Pilipina at the close of the preliminary round at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center. Laure, the UAAP Season 81 rookie of the year and 1st Best Outside Spiker, got the nod from the league on Sunday after the Tornadoes requested for a replacement following Ortiz's ACL injury. Per competition regulation, a team can replace up to two local players during the competition with the players listed in the O-2 form. Laure, whose older sister EJ is also part of Foton although currently in the reserve list, is expected to add more depth to the Tornadoes' offense as she joins the towering sisters 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago and 6-foot-2 Dindin Santiago-Manabat. Laure, who was in the reserve list at the start of the conference because of an ankle injury she sustained in the UAAP Finals against eventual champion Ateneo De Manila University, is a versatile and athletic player who can operate on both wings with solid floor defense. Her presence will give Foton the boost it needs as the Tornadoes prepare for the knockout quarterfinals. Foton holds a 7-6 card tied with Cignal......»»

Nadal, Federer joining Djokovic on ATP leadership board

LONDON (AP) — Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are joining Novak Djokovic on the ATP Player Council, bringing the Big Three together to reshape a board that has been roiled by conflict. The governing body of men's tennis announced Thursday that Federer and Nadal were elected along with doubles specialist Jurgen Melzer. They'll fill spots vacated after Robin Haase, Jamie Murray and Sergiy Stakhovsky resigned from the board before Wimbledon. Djokovic addressed his frustration with the player council in pre-tournament comments at Wimbledon. He says the ATP's governance structure prevented players from making "significant changes." Stan Wawrinka has also criticized the ATP's leadership, saying in a published letter that it was plagued by "political chaos" and "numerous conflicts of interest." The power struggle on the council included its decision in March not to renew the contract of ATP CEO Chris Kermode, who has clashed with Djokovic. Board member Justin Gimelstob resigned after he was sentenced to probation in April for attacking a former friend in Los Angeles. Former ATP executive Weller Evans filled Gimelstob's seat. The position of coaches' representative on the council remains open......»»
