Federer wins, Serena loses in Cincy tourney

MASON, Ohio (AP) — Roger Federer made a successful return to the Western & Southern Open on Tuesday. The day wasn't so great for Serena Williams. Federer advanced to the third round with a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Peter Gojowczyk, and Williams was eliminated by eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova in a 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 second-round loss. Federer and Williams were making their first appearance at the tournament since they each won the title in 2015. Williams opened with a straight-set victory against Daria Gavrilova. After a first-round bye, Federer extended his Cincinnati winning streak to 11 matches since losing to Rafael Nadal in the 2013 quarterfinals. "It doesn't feel like I have been away for so long here from Cincinnati," Federer said. "I guess the wheel keeps turning. It's not like I missed two years of tennis. It was a great pleasure to be back." The second-seeded Federer, refreshed from a month off after losing in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, became the tournament favorite when Nadal withdrew on Sunday night. Williams also was knocked out in her last tournament at San Jose two weeks ago after reaching the Wimbledon final. Cincinnati was her fifth tournament since she had a baby last September. She has dealt with blood clots and recently said she has been struggling with postpartum emotions. "You know, this is a long comeback," she said. "I just began. I just started — definitely at the very, very beginning. I'm getting there, and I'm going to just continue to work hard, and hopefully, I'll start winning more matches." Karolina Pliskova and Nick Kyrgios also advanced Tuesday in early tournament action. Pliskova moved into the second round by snapping a seven-match losing streak against Agnieszka Radwanska with a 6-3, 6-3 win. "It means a lot because it was against her, and, like, you know, I never beat her," Pliskova said. "We played so many times. I think I always played her at her best level the matches before, so it was always tough." Kyrgios, a finalist last year in Cincinnati, overcame physical problems to fight off qualifier Denis Kudla for a 6-7 (2), 7-5, 7-6 (9) victory. "This year has been tough," Kyrgios said. "I started the year very well. Then, obviously, I hurt my elbow. Then I had an ongoing hip injury. We have been definitely thinking about the options with my hip. You know, there is only so much you can do before you have to, you know, I guess, get surgery or something like that. You know, right now I'm just managing it." No. 11 seed David Goffin advanced with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Leonardo Mayer became the first player to reach the third round on the men's side with a 7-6 (7), 6-4 victory over 16th-seeded Lucas Pouille. Denis Shapovalov also reached the third round with an upset, knocking off 14th-seeded Kyle Edmund, 6-4, 7-5. Australian Open semifinalist Hyeon Chung won the last five games to beat Jack Sock 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. Sock has lost eight straight matches since winning in Rome on May 13. Two-time Cincinnati semifinalist Milos Raonic advanced with a 6-3, 6-3 win over qualifier Dusan Lajovic. Robin Haase also made it to the second round, defeating Filip Krajinovic 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. Fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina was tested by wild card Svetlana Kuznetsova before reaching the third round with a gritty 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-4 win. Sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia also reached the third round with a 6-4, 6-5 win over wild card Victoria Azarenka, but 12th-seeded Daria Kasatkina suffered a first-round upset at the hands of qualifier Petra Martic, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. Elise Mertens scored a 6-4, 6-2 first-round win over Magdalena Rybarikova. Ashleigh Barty stopped wild card Marketa Vondrousova 6-3, 7-5. Maria Sakkari upset Indian Wells champion Naomi Osaka 6-3, 7-6 (8). Ekaterina Makarova cruised past qualifier Ana Bogdan 6-3, 6-2......»»

MPBL: Straight from D-League Finals, Banal leads Bacoor to victory

Right from Game 2 of the Finals of the 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup last Tuesday afternoon, Gab Banal headed for the Strike Gymnasium in Bacoor, Cavite. There, he stayed hot to shoot the Strikers over very game visitors Laguna, 91-86, for their fourth straight win after a 0-2 start in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Anta-Datu Cup. Banal posted a 25-point, 12-rebound double-double to go along with six assists. This, just hours after tallying 33 points built on 7-of-8 shooting from threes while also collecting six rebounds and four assists in Go for Gold’s 105-81 Game 2 victory versus Che’Lu Bar and Grill in the best-of-five Finals of PBA D-League. The versatile forward had much help from fellow Strikers Leo De Vera who pounded in 17 points and 12 rebounds and Mark Montuano who scored 20 markers of his own. For the Heroes, Denok Miranda topped the scoring column with 29 points. Unable to douse cold water on Banal, though, they fell for the third time in a row and fell to a 2-4 record. In the day’s other game, Davao Occidental got the better of Cebu, 71-64. Billy Ray Robles showed the way for the now 3-3 Tigers with 14 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Patrick Cabahug paced the Sharks with 14 points which proved to be insufficient in preventing their drop to 1-5. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Asia, prepare for the Pringle-Lee-Clarkson backcourt

A backcourt of Stanley Pringle, Paul Lee, and Jordan Clarkson? Enough to be the best in Asia, if you ask former Gilas Pilipinas coach Tab Baldwin. With the entry of the Cleveland Cavaliers guard to the physical and explosive backcourt of Team Philippiines, the current Ateneo Blue Eagles head coach says that Gilas' opponents would have their hands full in guarding them. "So, you know, this is an exceptionally strong back court. I don't think Asia's seen anything like it, to be honest," Baldwin said in an interview at the ABS-CBN Integrated Sports Office. Even before the inclusion of Clarkson in the 12-man lineup in the quadrennial affair, Baldwin already noted the greatness of the backcourt, which includes the Globalport star, which he calls as 'one of the best point guards in Asia.' "Adding Jordan (Clarkson) will help a lot because it puts a guy in the lineup that can do some hard work in and around the basket. He's a good rebounder, he's got good size, strength and experience. But man, what a back court they have now produced." Asia better be ready for an 'exceptionally strong back court' of Stanley Pringle, Paul Lee, and of course, Jordan Clarkson, says coach Tab. "I don't think Asia's seen anything like it, to be honest."'#AsianGames | @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/aIB0qjgrD5 — Philip Martin Matel (@philipptionary) August 15, 2018 In addition to calling Pringle, who was a former top pick in the PBA Rookie Draft, as the best in the continent, Baldwin added that the Lee is not too far behind. The American-Kiwi coach cited the intangibles those two possess since they create opportunities not just for themselves, but for the whole team's offense. "So it gives Yeng [Guiao] the luxury of running a pretty basic offensive action, which with the limited time they have to prepare, you're gonna love that. He's gonna love that." Even though Asia is not necessarily known for tough and physical play, having a backcourt like Pringle, Lee, and Clarkson will work wonders for the Guiao-mentored squad, and have a chance to create mismatches for the Philippine side. With that said, in order to win it all, which is not a far possibility Baldwin says, the loaded backcourt needs to be supported by a 'little bit small and thin' front court, with the tallest player being 45-year old 6 foot 9 Asi Taulava with 6 foot 8 Christian Standhardinger, 6 foot 8 Raymond Almazan and 6 foot 8 Poy Erram not too far behind. "I hope and pray that Christian and Beau and Poy and Asi, that these guys will do a good job on the board for us. If they do that, I think they'll be in good shape."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

PVL: UP sweeps CSB in first meeting with former coach

University of the Philippines survived a tough challenge against a very game College of St. Benilde as the Lady Maroons got back on the winning track Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference. The Lady Maroons faced stiff resistance from the Lady Blazers mentored by their former head coach Jerry Yee and led by former UP setter Jewel Lai before walking away with a 26-24, 27-25, 29-27, victory at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

NCAA: JJ Domingo s breakout performance gives CSB sigh of relief

"Ooh! Sa wakas, nabuhay ka rin!" That's how CSB Blazers coach TY Tang opened the post-game press conference as his longest-tenured player JJ Domingo finally showed up for the first time this season. Domingo, who is playing in his fourth season with the squad, had himself a breakout game of 22 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal, which helped steer CSB to their third win of the season. For Tang, it's been a long time coming for his most veteran player, who is averaging 2.2 markers in 23.5 minutes for the season. "JJ finally is back. We've been patient, even for this day to come. We know what JJ can do. It's just a matter of getting his confidence back and being able to contribute in a way we know he can," the second-year coach said.  The coach also added that he hopes that the game will a sign of greater things to come. As for the guard, his coaches' incessant desire to keep him going was the key for the breakout, and thanks them for their efforts. "Marami akong games na wala ako masiyadong na-cocontribute. Tapos, yun lang talaga, si coach nag-chchallenge sa akin everyday. Pag wala yung laro ko, masama, walang nangyayari. Tuloy-tuloy na yun. So, ang gusto lang nila coach sa akin, yung decision-making ko maging tama." Another inspiration for the senior is his infant son, who watched the game along with his girlfriend. Domingo kissed his son after the game, a reminder to keep his game going. "Kailangan sa bawat laro ko may parang mapatunayan ko sa anak ko na, kaya ko rin maglaro, ganoon. Sila inspirasyon ko paggising ko, ganoon. Naging emotional talaga ako pag nakikita ko yung baby ko ganoon. So parang nachchallenge ako, every game." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
