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......»»

NCAA: Light Bombers take down Jr. Altas; LSGH still first

STANDINGS LSGH 6-1 MAPUA 5-2 ARELLANO 4-2 PERPETUAL 4-2 SAN BEDA 3-2 JRU 4-3 SAN SEBASTIAN 3-5 LPU 2-5 LETRAN 1-5 EAC 1-6 Jose Rizal High School is streaking for the first time in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament – and with that, has sent a statement about its contention. Following the lead of breakout player John Amores, the Light Bombers clobbered University of Perpetual Help in the earlygoing before holding on for a well-earned 84-72 win on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Amores tallied 18 points, seven rebounds, and three assists to show the Kalentong-based ballers the way to back-to-back wins – their first in the tournament. Now on a win run, JRU is just right behind powerhouses College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, Mapua High School, Arellano High School, and San Beda High School in the standings. However, it was Marwin Dionisio who actually got the Light Bombers to a strong start by dropping all but two of his 10 points in the first quarter. He also totalled 12 rebounds just for good measure. Of course, the Junior Altas kept coming, but Amores and Gab Baluyut just did enough to keep them at bay. With the upset loss, Perps dropped to a  tie for third at 4-2. Main man Joshua Gallano struggled with just four points and three rebounds. Meanwhile, CSB-LSGH retained its top spot in the standings by dropping a 32-point hammer on Emilio Aguinaldo College, 103-71. Inand Fornilos turned in his best game of the season with a 26-point, 14-rebound double-double while Joshua David and RC Calimag each chipped in 12 markers for the now 6-1 Junior Blazers. Joel Cagulangan was relatively quiet once more, but was still felt everywhere with his 10 points, seven assists, five rebounds, and three steals. For the 1-6 Brigadiers, JR Ilustrisimo showed the way with 14 points and seven rebounds.

NCAA: Domingo comes alive as CSB cops much-needed win

With College of St. Benilde desperate for a win in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, its most senior player delivered the goods. The veteran guard played his best game in two years to jolt the Blazers back to life at the expense of Emilio Aguinaldo College, 84-71, on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Domingo scored 22 points on top of seven rebounds and four assists to help the Taft-based team return to the win column now at 3-4. “I hope we get some momentum going because we really need it to, at least, be in the middle of the pack,” a satisfied head coach TY Tang said post-game. The streaky shooter fired eight of his output in the final frame, just as the Generals were mounting a rally. “Finally, he got his confidence back. Hopefully, this will just be the start for him,” coach TY said. CSB’s edge, though, was gotten courtesy of a 13-0 run that turned a two-point lead to a 41-26 advantage late in the second quarter. Unique Naboa capped off that run with a triple and eventually ended with six points, five assists, and three rebounds. Yankie Haruna also added 11 markers. That was more than enough to overcome the loss of Cameroonian Clement Leutcheu who was ejected due to two technical fouls. He had nine points and four rebounds before being sent out in the final frame. For EAC, Juju Bautista and Hamadou Laminou both had double-doubles as the former finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds and the latter ended with 13 markers and 13 boards. They saw their two-game win run come to a stop and now stand at 2-5. BOX SCORES CSB 84 – Domingo 22, Haruna 11, Leutcheu 9, Gutang 9, Naboa 6, Dixon 6, Nayve 5, Begica 4, Pasturan 4, Young 3, Velasco 2, Barnes 2 EAC 71 – Bautista 17, Laminou 13, Tampoc 10, Garcia 9, Diego 5, Mendoza 5, Bugarin 5, Maguliano 4, Gonzales 2, Cadua 1, Natividad 0, Robin 0, Neri 0 QUARTER SCORES: 18-20, 44-31, 61-49, 84-71 —— Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
