TIANJIN, China - Belinda Bencic and Alison Riske will both be vying for their first WTA tour title when they face each other in the inaugural Tianjin Open final on Sunday.Both players eliminated Chinese opponents in the semifinals on Saturday. Riske won the first nine games en route to a 6-0, 6-1 rout of Zheng Saisai, while Bencic advanced when hometown favourite Peng Shuai retired with a lower back injury while trailing 3-1.The 17-year-old Bencic will try to become the youngest champion on the WTA tour since Tamira Paszek of Austria won in Portoroz, Slovenia, in 2006 at the age of 15.Its bad luck for her that she (Peng) had to retire, but it changed nothing on my side of the net, the third-seeded Swiss player said. I feel like Im playing really well here in Tianjin.Riskes best previous results were two semifinal appearances at Birmingham in 2010 and 2013.Im really excited to be in my first WTA final, the sixth-seeded American said. Obviously the jobs not done yet, but Im really proud of the work thats been put into it, and hopefully tomorrow brings another good day.

A a€?mediocrea€? training camp, as Carlyle put it earlier this week, has Frattin lingering nervously on the bubble at the end of the exhibition season, pushed out of a likely job by Brandon Kozun, the small, but feisty winger determined to make the NHL for the first time. http://www.theeaglesfootballauthentic.com/eagles-randall-cunningham-black-jersey/.

Wilbert Montgomery Womens Jersey . Bilbaos first victory in four rounds lifted it four points clear of Real Sociedad and kept it in command of Spains last Champions League berth for next season. In contrast, Betis was left 11 points from safety after a dismal performance that at times bordered on self-destruction amid some questionable refereeing decisions.Panama City, Panama (SportsNetwork.com) - Hao Tong Li fired a 5-under 65 in Saturdays third round and he moved atop the leaderboard at the season-opening Panama Claro Championship. Li ended 54 holes at 9-under-par 201. The China native topped the PGA Tour China money list in 2014 to earn his Web.com Tour card for 2015. This is his first career start on the Web.com Tour. Second-round leader Harold Varner III tripped to a 1-over 71 and he slid into a share of second place at minus-8. He was joined there by Mathew Goggin, who carded an even-par 70 that included back-to-back double-bogeys that dropped him from the lead. Martin Piller fired a 6-under 64, the low round of the day at Club de Golf de Panama, and he vaulted into a tie for fourth at 7-under 203. He stands alongside Henrik Norlander, who shot 68 on Saturday. Shane Bertsch (66) and Oliver Goss (67) share sixth at minus-6. Li moved to 6-under with birdies at the second and fourth. He tripped to a bogey at the par-3 eighth. Around the turn, back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11 moved Li to minus-7. He stumbled to another bogey at the 13th, but quickly erased that mistake with a birdie at 14th. The 19-year-old was still one behind Varner at that point. Li jumped into the lead as he birdied 16 and 18 to close to out his round. I dont look at the leaderboaards.ddddddddddddWe still have a lot of holes to play. I was just trying to play my game. I wasnt thinking about the leaders today, admitted Li. Varner played the front nine in even-par with a birdie at the fourth and a bogey at the seventh to go with seven pars. He moved to 9-under with a birdie at No. 10. Varner tripped to bogeys at 12 and 13, but came right back with a birdie on the 14th. However, Varner faltered to another bogey at 15 to dip to minus-8. He parred the final three holes to end there. Goggin opened with five pars in a row before making three birdies in a 4-hole span from the sixth. That burst moved him into the lead at 11-under. Trouble loomed though as he struggled to double-bogeys at 10 and 11 to tumble to minus-7. Goggin bounced back with a birdie at 12 before making bogey at 13. he dipped to 6-under when he bogeyed the 16th, but Goggin birdied the final two holes to gain a share of second place. That was so irritating. At worst, those should have been a couple of bogeys. One behind, one round to go, said Goggin. NOTES: Li won three times on the PGA Tour China last season and had eight top-10 finishes in 12 starts ... Li started the season as the second-highest ranked Web.com Tour player at world No. 192, with only No. 173 Greg Chalmers higher than him in the rankings.
