BEIJING, China - Top-ranked Novak Djokovic reached his fifth China Open final and improved his spotless record at the tournament to 23-0 with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Andy Murray on Saturday.In the womens draw, Maria Sharapova overcame eight double-faults, including four as she served for the match, to defeat Ana Ivanovic 6-0, 6-4. She will take on Petra Kvitova in the final after the Czech player beat Samantha Stosur 6-3, 5-7, 6-2.It was Djokovics third win over Murray this year and came just weeks after the Serb knocked him out of the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open in a hard-fought, 3 1/2-hour match.Saturdays semifinal didnt quite reach the same level of quality — the two combined for 43 unforced errors and only 26 winners — but Djokovic proved the steadier player at the key moments and saved four of five break points he faced in the second set.It was a two-set victory today, but still it felt like I had to work hard to win the points, he said.Hell play third-seeded Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic in the final. Berdych won 6-4, 6-1 over Martin Klizan, the qualifier who upset Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals.Overall, Djokovic is on a 24-match winning streak in China, having also won the Shanghai Masters in 2012 and 2013. He has not lost in China since being beaten by Roger Federer in the semifinals in Shanghai in 2010.He said he feels hes playing consistent tennis again after an up-and-down summer that saw him win his seventh Grand Slam title at Wimbledon and marry his long-time girlfriend, Jelena Ristic, then lose early at Cincinnati and Toronto.I just wasnt myself on the court. I wasnt really prepared emotionally to go back and compete again after Wimbledon and a very exhausting summer, everything that happened in my professional and private life, he said. Im glad that Im back in the form that I would like to be in, especially in these courts where I still havent lost ever since I played this tournament.Despite the loss, Murray was also pleased with how hes been playing in Asia this month. The 11th-ranked Scot accepted wild cards to play in Shenzhen and Beijing to try to improve his ranking and qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals in London.He won the title in Shenzhen last week and reached the semifinals in Beijing, playing eight matches in 10 days.Its been a couple good weeks for me, he said. I got a lot of matches, some momentum. Obviously, I would have liked to have done a little bit better here. But I lost to the No. 1 player in the world. Theres no disgrace in that.On the womens side, Sharapova needed four match points — and a little luck — to close out her win over Ivanovic.With Sharapova serving for the match at 5-4, the two played a nerve-wracking, 10-minute game featuring four double-faults and several wasted match and break points.Ivanovic finally thought she got the break on her fourth chance when Sharapovas backhand went wide, but the Russian challenged the call and the ball was shown to have caught the line by a fraction. Sharapova hit an ace to set up her fourth match point and won it on an Ivanovic error.Definitely got tricky in the end, Sharapova said. I didnt just give her a serve where she could attack because against me shes always played well when she has been behind because shes free and loose.The third-seeded Kvitova will be going for her second title in as many weeks. She captured the inaugural Wuhan Open title last week, and will be going for her fourth of the season on Sunday in Beijing.If she wins, shell also leapfrog Simona Halep to move to No. 2 in the rankings.Im quite tired already. A lot of matches in Wuhan and here, she said. Im looking forward to go to Europe. So Im glad the final match is the last one here, then I can go. Wholesale Atlanta Falcons Jerseys .

"I just think what it does for everybody in life is real simple," said Babcock early on Friday afternoon. "You dont give in. You just keep on keeping on. Is it going to go your way every time? No. But you choose your attitude and how you perform and how hard you dig in." Nearly four years to the day of the 2010 gold medal match in Vancouver, his team dug in with its best effort of these Olympics, snuffing out the high-powered Americans for another opportunity at gold.In the wake of the news that he will be stepping down as president and CEO of MLSE at or before June 30, 2015, Tim Leiweke said the decision to move on was one that the organizations ownership was well aware of. “For the board, they knew this was coming, this was not new information,” Leiweke said Wednesday on TSN 1050. “They knew and I knew that that kind of style is not the kind of style that lasts for 10 years. My job is to turn a franchise around or in this case, turn an organization around. I knew that was my place here and they knew and I knew that it wouldnt be a long term.” Lewieke admitted he decided to acknowledge the reports of his departure were indeed true after initially denying them in order to eliminate the distractions that they were causing to MLSEs sports teams. “Im glad we got it out there and Im glad its gone so now we can get focused on things were working on and all the things we need to do.” Addressing the rumours that his decision to move on was based on a conflict with ownership, Leiweke said the organizations ownership has been nothing but supportive, but also acknowledged his management style was one that didnt always mesh with his bosses. “We may have had a few moments where there some was tension, but the board appreciates we have been very aggressive at not only identifying our problems, but solving our problems…Theyve given me everything Ive ever asked for.” Leiweke also acknowledged it was never his goal to lead MLSE for the long run, insisting he was looking to create meaningful change within a short period in order to get what were three struggling franchises pointed in the right direction. “My intention was to do the best I could, change the culture, hire a great management teams for all three of these franchises, then I was gonna go and create my own company.” Looking back at his short stay with MLSE which began on April 23, 2013, Leiweke said he is encouraged by what he has accomplished with each of Toronto FC, the Maple Leafs and the Raptors. “We needed to do some soul searching here. We needed to be critical of some decisions we made in the past.dddddddddddd We needed to acknowledge where we were and the accomplishments that we had made were not good enough for this marketplace.” In terms of his most recent hire, Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan, Leiweke said hes been very encouraged by the initial moves made by the NHLs former head of discipline, admitting the organization may have gotten complacent after they broke a nearly decade long playoff drought in 2013. “Im very proud of the job Brendan Shanahan has done to date. Hes not afraid about making decisions; that weve made clear now. “Weve made some tough decisions here. Should we have done it a year ago? Coming off that Boston playoff series maybe we were a little more secure than we should have been." Referencing a commitment to bringing in leaders who “think a different way” and establishing an “analytical division that wasnt even here a year ago or for that matter two months ago,” Leiweke said Shanahans changes, which have also included the jettisoning of two assistant GMs and three assistant coaches have set a real tone within the organization. The ongoing transition is only the start of the process, however, as Leiweke says the organization will continue to analyze themselves and the past mistakes that were made, in order to learn from them and move forward. “We arent gonna have long term success here unless we look deep inside ourselves and begin to understand why we havent had it. Theres a reason we havent won here, its not by chance and we know what it is now. “ Leiweke noted that the moves Shanahan has made are similar to what Los Angeles Kings president and general manager Dean Lombardi initiated when he took over Leiwekes former organization, making accountability at all levels a priority. “I promise you one thing as we begin training camps here in two weeks. The Leafs are going to be accountable to each other and to the organization now, thats for sure. “I can tell you flat out that I feel better about the Leafs today than any time Ive been here in the last 16 months.” Leiweke on MLSE ownership, direction of Leafs Cheap Canadiens Jerseys Cheap Predators Jerseys Cheap Devils Jerseys Cheap Islanders Jerseys Cheap Rangers Jerseys Cheap Senators Jerseys Cheap Flyers Jerseys Cheap Penguins Jerseys Cheap Sharks Jerseys Cheap Blues Jerseys Cheap Lightning Jerseys Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys Cheap Canucks Jerseys Cheap Golden Knights Jerseys Cheap Capitals Jerseys Cheap Winnipeg Jets Jerseys ' ' '
