BAD GASTEIN, Austria -- Andrea Hlavackova of the Czech Republic edged Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 7-5, 6-7 (1), 6-4 to set up a final against Yvonne Meusburger at the Gastein Ladies on Saturday. Kirk Gibson Jersey . Meusburger reached her second straight WTA final by defeating Karin Knapp of Italy 6-4, 6-3. The Austrian was beaten by Romanias Simona Halep for the title in Budapest last week. Hlavackova had not been beyond the quarterfinals of a WTA event before. Ranked 108th, she specializes in doubles, where she won the French Open in 2011 and finished runner-up at Wimbledon, the London Olympics and the U.S. Open last year. Hlavackova and Meusburger will meet for the first time. In her third career final, Meusburger is looking for her maiden title. "I hope its going to happen tomorrow," said Meusburger, who also reached the final of the 2007 Gastein Ladies but lost to Francesca Schiavone. The 86th-ranked Meusburger broke Knapp in the opening game but missed two chances to go 4-1 up. After four consecutive breaks, Meusburger held serve at 5-4. The Austrian failed to serve out the match at 5-2 but broke Knapp immediately afterward when the Italian ended the match with two double faults. "I didnt play spectacular tennis, I just tried to be consistent," said Meusburger, who hasnt dropped a set in the tournament. "I kept the ball in play and waited for her mistakes. These tactics have paid off." In a match that included 20 breaks of serve, Hlavackova got treatment for a right ankle injury toward the end of the opening set. She came from 4-1 down to take the second into a tiebreaker before breaking Svitolinas serve three more times in the decider. Max Muncy Womens Jersey . Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal.  Shouldnt the ruling on the ice (good goal) stand after an inconclusive review?  Why was this overturned?  James Veaudry Pembroke, ON --  Hey Kerry, Youll get a lot of these, but why was the Montreal goal against Nashville Saturday night overturned? Eller puts the puck on net and the on ice ruling from the ref behind the net is a Montreal goal. Ross Stripling Womens Jersey . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. http://www.ladodgersprostore.us/Fernando-Valenzuela-dodgers-jersey/ . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. CHASKA, Minn. -- My fellow Americans, now is the time we must stand together. Whether youre Trump or Hillary, whether youre conservative or liberal, its time to put aside our differences and focus on the real issue facing our nation.This is Ryder Cup week, a week when even the most disillusioned souls among us can passionately root for a dozen multimillionaires from our country to beat a dozen multimillionaires from another continent in a game that still too often evokes images of high-society haughtiness.If that isnt enough to band together and put the united back in the United States, then allow me to introduce our newest Public Enemy No. 1.His name is Pete Willett, and hes a schoolteacher.That alone doesnt sound too sinister, but ever since Petes brother, Danny, won this years Masters Tournament right here in the good ol U.S. of A., he has been afforded a platform to offer his opinions on a variety of golf- (and non-golf) related matters.Hes usually funny. Hes sarcastic, dry and self-deprecating. He is often even a bit subversive, though not in a malicious way.Until now.In his latest column for National Club Golfer, Willett -- Pete, that is, not the one with the green jacket -- explained how much he loves the Ryder Cup and how much he loves watching his European side beat the Americans every other year. Nothing wrong with that. He should.Then he gets into what he really thinks of American golf fans.He called us a baying mob of imbeciles.He called us a giggling group of reprobates.He called us pudgy, basement-dwelling irritants, stuffed on cookie dough and pissy beer.He called us cretins and immature and dim Yanks.He called us fat, stupid, greedy, classless bastards.Game on, Petey. Those are fightin words.There are places in America where, well, lets just say Pete Willett wouldnt be a very welcome guest right now. Chaska doesnt feel like one of them. Theyre nice people here. Tolerant people, it seems.But man, if the first few days of practice rounds are any indication, they sure do like to make a lot of noise.Guess what, Pete? You just gave them reason to get even louder. You single-handedly ratcheted the level of animosity a few extra notches. After three consecutive Ryder Cup losses, the U.S. hasnt been an underdog like this since 1776 -- oddsmakers lines be damned.We like that role. Just as we like being called out and poked fun at and ridiculed, as juvenile as it might have been. Enrique Hernandez Womens Jersey. Thats because anything we take, we can dish out even better. Dont expect us to sit here and take it quietly.Danny Willett already understands this. A rookie on this years European team, he played a practice round Wednesday at Hazeltine and heard plenty of jeers from that baying mob of imbeciles.Asked by Golf Channel for his thoughts on his brothers column, the Masters champion said: Id just like to apologize, obviously, to everyone involved for whats been said. Its obviously not the thoughts of myself and of the team and of captain Darren [Clarke]. I spoke to [Pete] on the phone after I was made aware of what was said and what has been going on. And I said to Pete that, you know, I was obviously disappointed in what was said and what was written about the American fans that obviously took me under their wing fantastically back in April.Perhaps Danny has been keeping an eye on American politics lately because thats what we like to call some good, old-fashioned spin control.Even Clarke got in on the act, knowing the brother of a team member mightve just turned a raucous home crowd into a frenzied flock of impassioned supporters.It is not what I think. It is not what Team Europe stands for, Clarke said. I was obviously very disappointed in it, as well, because thats an outside person expressing their opinion, which is not representative of what our thoughts are.As a guy who has written more than my fair share of non-humorous humor columns, I understand the desire to take a mulligan sometimes.Hey, foot-in-mouth disease happens to everyone, at some point. Just last week, U.S. captain Davis Love III stoked the rivalry flames by claiming, This is the best golf team, maybe, ever assembled.Europe instantly went 1-up after that comment, with the teams star players using those words as a launching point for punch lines about the U.S. task force and their inability to win this event.With Pete Willetts incendiary column, the match is back to all square. Expect these pudgy, basement-dwelling irritants to be extra loud this week in response to those words.You know, in between bites of cookie dough and sips of pissy beer.Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
