CROOZEFM 2015: Hosts Equatorial Guinea and Claude Le Roy's Congo Brazzaville defied the odds to become the first teams to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday. The duo were considered the outsiders in Group A when the competition began, but Congo advanced in first place after beating Burkina Faso 2-1 while Equatorial Guinea sunk Gabon 2-0 amid emotional scenes in Bata. After drawing their first two matches at the tournament, the Nzalang Nacional had to beat Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's Gabon to go through and did so to match their achievement of reaching the last eight as co-hosts in 2012. While Gabon go home, Equatorial Guinea advance to a quarter-final against the runners-up from Group B. A wide open Group B concludes today, when Tunisia need only a draw with DR Congo in Bata to advance, while Zambia, the 2012 champions, must beat Cape Verde to keep alive their hopes of going through.

I never had respect for tennis players until I saw Serena Williams live at the French Open. Those people are ATHLETES!!!
Ana Ivanovic found a way yesterday to do what even Serena Williams had failed at this week - she just did not get the same reward for it. The Serb became the first at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals to break Simona Halep's serve and beat the Romanian, but even after winning 7-6 (9-7), 3-6, 6-3, she still found herself out of the tournament. The round-robin format of the season finale meant that Ivanovic needed to win the match in straight sets to beat Williams for a place in the semi-finals today. The 2008 French Open champion showed plenty of fight from the get go, her trademark chants of "Ajde" - Serbian for "come on" - filling the Singapore Indoor Stadium with each hard-fought point. Down 2-5 in the first set and just two points away from packing her bags for home, a miraculous comeback earned Ivanovic the next four games and the set after a tense tie-breaker. Said the 26-year-old: "I was completely with my back against the wall, and then I came up with amazing tennis at that point and worked really hard to ...

I hope you were paying attention as Serena Williams won her 18thGrand Slam title against Caroline Wozniacki in Sunday’s U.S. Open Ladies Singles Final. Why? Because with that win, Serena Williams became simply the greatest American tennis player ever. Male or female. No asterisks. “I never dreamed that I could be compared to Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova,” Williams said in her post-match press conference. “I was just a kid with a dream and a racket living in Compton.” Here’s how the numbers lay out. With her 18th major, Serena tied Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. Evert, for all of her greatness and influence, isn’t quite a match for Serena. She did win her 18 majors in 56 majors for a .321 slam average, one fewer than Serena, whose Slam Average stands at .315. (Slam average can be computed by taking a player’s slam wins and dividing them by the total number of majors in which she competed) But Serena has two important edges—Serena won 13 majors in doubles, compared to only ...

Tennis | WTA Serena, Ivanovic battle into Cincinnati final 17 August 2014, 07:28 Serena Williams rallied past Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday to reach the Western and Southern Open final in Cincinnati where she will face Ana Ivanovic, an upset winner over French Open champion Maria Sharapova. Top-seeded Williams had to overcome a sluggish start to beat Wozniacki 2-6 6-2 6-4 while Serbian ninth seed Ivanovic eventually prevailed in a rollercoaster 6-2 5-7 7-5 win over the Russian fifth seed that lasted nearly three hours. The Cincinnati tournament is the last of the key tune-ups ahead of the August 25-September 8 US Open, the year's final Grand Slam, where Williams will defend her crown. The day's first semifinal was a rematch of the thrilling quarterfinal in Montreal earlier this month between Williams and Wozniacki that the American won in three sets. Williams looked a pale shadow of herself in the 29-minute first set as she held her serve only once and recorded twice as many unforced errors as ...

Tennis | Wimbledon Kevin Anderson writes Sharapova out, Serena in health scare 01 July 2014, 20:04 Maria Sharapova suffered more Wimbledon heartache as the French Open champion crashed to a shock 7-6 (7/4), 4-6, 6-4 defeat against Germany's Angelique Kerber in the fourth round, while Serena Williams quit her doubles match after a health scare. Sharapova famously won Wimbledon aged 17 in 2004, but she has struggled to emulate that feat for much of the last decade and this was another dispiriting experience for the Russian as the ninth seed sealed a stunning Centre Court triumph on her seventh match point. The world No 5 arrived at the All England Club fresh from her second Roland Garros title, but she has now failed to make it past the last 16 in seven of her last eight appearances at Wimbledon. "Today could have gone either way, and it didn't go my way," Sharapova said. "Despite the results and the fact that I've lost here and haven't had good results, I still love playing on grass." Kerber, who reached t ...

It goes through strong periods and weaker ones, trends come and go, and often return. The women’s game is a cyclical as it comes. There was a time when it was derided by media and fans, notorious for the early-round drubbings dished out by Steffi Graf and Monica Seles and with a perceived lack of depth. Then, thanks to a wave of teenage talent led by Martina Hingis, Anna Kournikova and Venus and Serena Williams, people were suddenly paying attention to women’ ...

It all seems to be going to plan in the men's singles but plenty of upset this week for the women at the French Open. With Serena Williams out in the first week, who do you think is going to pick up top spot in her absence?
The *** here with tonight's Rd.3 French Open tips Bit of value floating around with the seeded players now running into each other meaning more competitive matches. Here are my best bets for tonight: *Tommy Robredo ($1.50)- Despite being lower ranked than John Isner he loves this surface and Isner doesn't.. Isner will have to tee of and make everything to win. *Jo Wilfired Tsonga ($1.18)- Playing well and too much class for Janowics. *Dominka Cibulkova ($2.50)- She is ranked higher than our own Sam Stosur and is in form but is somehow paying $2.50. Stosur will have to play her best to win here.. -Cibulkova 2 sets to 1 is paying $5- also very good odds. *Mugurusa ($1.30)- This young Spaniard dismantled Serena Williams so based on that should ease past her unseeded opponent. *Novak Djokovic- He is paying $1.30 to win 3 sets to 0 against Marin Cilic and based on the way he is playing, this should be no problem. VALUE BETS *Cibulkova ($2.50) *Cibulkova 2 sets to 1 ($5) *Robert Bautista Agut ($2.80)- The muc . ...

Althea Gibson (August 25, 1927 – September 28, 2003) was an American tennis player and professional golfer, and the first black athlete of either gender to cross the color line of international tennis. In 1956 she became the first person of color to win a Grand Slam title (the French Open). The following year she won both Wimbledon and the U.S. Nationals (precursor of the U.S. Open), then won both again in 1958, and was voted Female Athlete of the Year by the Associated Press in both years. In all she won 11 Grand Slam tournaments, including six doubles titles, and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame and the International Women's Sports Hall of Fame. "She is one of the greatest players who ever lived," said Robert Ryland, a tennis contemporary and former coach of Venus and Serena Williams. "Martina couldn't touch her. I think she'd beat the Williams sisters." In the early 1960s she also became the first black player to compete on the women's professional golf tour. At a time when ...

FRENCH OPEN With the French Open kicking off tonight, here are my picks for the tournament! The bookies have narrowed it down to a 2 horse race in the men's field with Novak Djokovic ($2.30) edging Rafael Nadal ($2.50) for favoritism. I can't see anyone outside of these 2 winning the tournament as well. Nadal at $2.50 is an absolute steal. Yes Novak has beaten him in the last 4 meetings and he hasn't been at his best, but Rafa is 59-1 in Paris and has won 8 of the last 9 Grand Slams there & is no doubt the best clay courter ever. Moving up from 3 to 5 set matches suits him to a tee here. Some markets have a Djokovic & Nadal final @ $2.40 which is also great value. In the women's draw Serena Williams ($2.20) is very short and clay is probably her worst surface but she is a class above when she is 100% fit. Li Na $6.50 is good value coming off an Aussie Open win and her opponent in that final, Dominika Cibulkova ($67) is massive overs. The clay suits her grinding style of game and as a top 10 player she'll ...

French Open prediction: Nadal's reign at Roland Garros will end in the final. It's Djoković's turn to complete the non-calendar year slam. Serena Williams will defend her title at the only major where she's failed to defend a title. The Brothers Bryan will take the men's doubles. Errani and Vinci will take the women's double tourney. Don't be surprised if Simona Halep make the semis. Federer won't get past the quarters. Stanislas Warinka is no. 3 to win behind Djoković and Nadal. There will be many upsets.
The draw has been set. The clay has been combed. All of the top players are in Paris. It's time for the French Open to begin. This year, the tournament feels a bit more up in the air than usual. Rafael Nadal still had the best clay season out of anyone, but it wasn't up to his lofty standards. The Spaniard only won one title, and lost in two straight quarterfinals to lower-ranked countrymen. Novak Djokovic beat him in the final of the Rome Masters last week to set up plenty of intrigue between the top two players in the world. On the women's side, Serena Williams is the favorite as always, but there are plenty of other contenders. Maria Sharapova continues her revival on clay, Simona Halep is looking to finally make a big move at a major and Ana Ivanovic has been turning the clock back to 2008, the year she won this tournament. As soon as the draws for major tournaments are released, fans look ahead to which players will be competing in quarterfinals and semifinals. However, this year's French Open will f ...

The tennis tours arrived in the capital of Spain with doubts and questions. Two weeks later, they leave the capital of Italy with a sense of order that seems both traditional and renewed. Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal started the clay swing slowly, but they’ll head to its final event, in the capital of France, in their familiar positions as Grand Slam favorites.

She has now won 60 WTA titles, moving her into seventh in the all-time list.

Tennis MELBOURNE — China’s Li Na stormed to her second Grand Slam title on Saturday, battling past underdog Dominika Cibulkova to win the Australian Open and give another huge boost to Asian tennis. The 31-year-old fourth seed’s 7-6 (7/3), 6-0 win crowned her the champion on her third attempt after losing the 2011 and 2013 finals, adding to the French Open title she won three years ago. In doing so, she became the oldest winner of the women’s title, surpassing Margaret Court who was 30 when she became champion in 1973. The Chinese star also joins an exclusive list of just seven other players to win a Grand Slam at 30-plus, with her name now in the history books alongside greats such as Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, Chris Evert and Serena Williams. “I finally got here,” she said after Evert awarded her the trophy, as she praised her husband Jiang Shan and coach Carlos Rodriguez. “Thanks Carlos. He always believed that I could do well.” The win pushes her one place higher in the wor ...
Li Na Wins Australian Open In 3rd Trip To Final Seven months after giving retirement serious thought, Li Na made it third time lucky in an Australian Open final with a 7-6 (3), 6-0 win over Dominika Cibulkova to become the oldest women's champion here in the Open Era. Li, who turns 32 next month, lost finals to Kim Clijsters in 2011 and to Victoria Azarenka last year. In between, she won the 2011 French Open in one of the many firsts she's established for Chinese tennis. Widely popular at Melbourne Park for her funny post-match interviews and wise cracks about her husband and his snoring, Li didn't disappoint the Rod Laver Crowd in her first victory speech. She first thanked her agent, Max, ''for making me rich,'' her coach Carlos Rodriguez and then her husband, former coach and constant traveling companion, Shan Jiang. She told him he was ''even famous in China.'' ''So thanks for him give up everything just traveling with me to be my hitting partner, fix the drinks, fix the racket. So thanks a lot, you a ...
Some more facts on Li Na (from WTA official site) Having fought off a match point in her third round match against Lucie Safarova, she's also the fourth woman in the Open Era to win the Aussie Open after saving match point (joining Monica Seles, Jennifer Capriati and Serena Williams, who did it twice). But perhaps more importantly, the woman who became Asia's first Grand Slam champion at the French Open in 2011 is now a two-time Grand Slam champion. She will return to No.3 on Monday, the highest ranking ever for an Asian player, and she will only be a handful of points from No.2.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Even in a Grand Slam as unpredictable as this year's Australian Open, the names in the women's semifinals may still prompt head-scratching among casual followers of tennis. With the three biggest stars of the women's game falling one by one - top-seeded Serena Williams, followed by Maria Sharapova and two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka - the door has opened for a first-time winner at Melbourne Park. Only fourth-seeded Li Na has won a Grand Slam before - the 2011 French Open. Fifth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland was the 2012 Wimbledon finalist, but had never been beyond the quarters in Melbourne until she chipped, lobbed and sliced Azarenka off the court in a remarkable display of shot-making on Wednesday. Dominika Cibulkova, a diminutive Slovakian who dispatched Sharapova in the fourth round, has made just one Grand Slam semifinal before, while 19-year-old Eugenie Bouchard is a only playing her fourth major - she didn't even make it out of qualifying at ...
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- One by one, Serena Williams is matching the feats of tennis' greatest legends. Her next challenge comes at the Australian Open, which starts Monday with Williams seeking her 18th Grand Slam title - an accomplishment that would match Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. ''It would mean a lot to be on the same level as such great players,'' Williams said in a pre-tournament news conference Saturday, quickly adding a dash of humility. ''I still have a lot of work to do. I obviously want to reach that level, but I'm not there yet.'' ''Hopefully, I'll get there,'' she added. The No. 1-ranked, No. 1-seeded player is entering the new season after a spectacular year. In 2013, Williams won 78 of her 82 matches including the French Open and the U.S. Open. She earned more than $12 million in prize money, a record for women's tennis. At 32, an age where most professional players are in decline, Williams is playing the best tennis of her career, says Navratilova, who predicts that Williams ...

Serena WilliamS TO PLAY Brisbane International. BRISBANE, Australia (AP) Serena Williams has confirmed she will play in the Brisbane International tuneup event before next year's Australian Open. Brisbane tournament officials said Wednesday that Williams, the defending champion, and Australian Lleyton Hewitt would join the previously announced Roger Federer at the hard-court tournament at the Queensland Tennis Centre from Dec. 29-Jan. 5. The Australian Open, which Williams has won five times, begins Jan. 13 at Melbourne Park. Williams, the world No. 1, will be attempting to win her 18th Grand Slam singles title. Williams won nine WTA titles this year, including her fifth U.S. Open title and second at the French Open. Hewitt recently led Australia back into the Davis Cup's elite World Group after a six-year absence. He also reached the round of 16 at the U.S. Open.Source:OlySports.com.
Between MMS and Dev Anand we forgot Serena Williams. Its her birthday too. Happy Birthday to the only man who can beat Nadal at French Open.
Blacks, Sports and Lingering Racial Stereotypes By Salim Muwakkil These are challenging days for those fond of racial stereotypes in sports. The world's top two female tennis players are African-American sisters and the world's leading golfer is the son of a black father and a Thai mother, and Africans hold records in just about every distance race held around the world. Those racial designations should not mean much, but for most Americans, born and bred in the briar patch of color biases, they do. They certainly matter to African-Americans, who repeatedly have been told they lacked the "qualities" for certain athletic pursuits like tennis, golf and distance running. The further withering away of sports stereotypes was most vividly illustrated by the tennis superiority of Venus and Serena Williams. After finishing as finalists in the recent French Open, the sisters were ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the women's world tennis rankings. Tiger Woods has attained a similar kind of dominance in golf. Since turning ...
After beating the favourite Serena Williams, earlier in the week, Germany's Sabine Lisicki has reached her 1st ever Wimbledon final. Germany's Sabine Lisicki took on Poland's Agnieszka Rdwanska for a place in the Women's final at the Wimbledon tennis Championships. Lisicki's opponent Radwanska came on the court with both thighs heavily strapped to protect muscles which had been working hard in her previous matches. The match went to 3, highly competitive sets with Lisicki taking the 1st 6-3 before Radwanska came back to win the 2nd 6-2. Then, in the 3rd set, Lisicki broke her opponent's serve to go up 8-7 before serving out for victory at 9-7. At Wimbledon in 2011, Lisicki received a wildcard to enter the tournament advancing to the semi finals of a Grand Slam tournament for the 1st time. She beat 3rd seed and recent French Open champion Li Na from China in the 2nd round before eliminated by Russia's Maria Sharapova.
Tennis - Wimbledon Order of play: Tuesday July 2 The order of play for day eight at Wimbledon, featuring all four ladies' quarter-finals. Eight women from eight different countries will walk through the gates of the All England Club on Tuesday harbouring genuine title hopes following a Wimbledon wipeout of the headline attractions. Czech eighth seed Petra Kvitova, Wimbledon champion in 2011, and China's Li Na, French Open winner in the same year, are the only two who know how it feels to win a Grand Slam. After defeat for Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka's injury-enforced withdrawal, Serena Williams was expected to stroll to a sixth Wimbledon title but her fourth-round defeat by German Sabine Lisicki on Monday left the draw wide open. Kvitova takes on 20th seed Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium, a quarter-final debutant at this level, while Li faces fourth- seeded Pole Agnieszka Radwanska who was runner-up here last year. "I think it doesn't mean anything," Radwanska said, referring to her role as the high ...
Serena Williams: 32 match win streak, trying to become 1st player to win French Open and Wimbledon in same season since …
Five Down, Two to Go Serena Williams, the WTA ranked tennis player in the world, advanced to the French Open semifinals this afternoon. Williams came from behind, 2-0, to beat unranked Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova in the third set, 6-3. Serena Williams will square off with Italian Sara Errani (WTA ranked to advance to the championship match later this week.

Serena Williams began the defence of her Wimbledon title with a comfortable 6-1 6-3 victory over Luxembourg's Mandy Minella on Tuesday to stretch her unbeaten run to 32 matches. The world number one, playing her first match since winning the French Open, scorched through the first set in 19 minutes, but was given a brief fright at the start of the second when she lost her serve to go 2-0 down. The 16-times Grand Slam winner swiftly regained control, however, breaking in the very next game, before romping away with the match.
Five-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams shrugged off her bitter rift with Maria Sharapova to rack up her 32nd successive win with a 6-1, 6-3 triumph over Luxembourg's Mandy Minella in the first round on Tuesday. World number one Williams came into her title defence opener at the centre of a storm for her controversial comments on a US High School rape case and for her dig at Sharapova's romance with her own ex-boyfriend, Bulgarian player Grigor Dimitrov. The 31-year-old took out her frustrations on the hapless Minella, the world number 92 who has never defeated a top-30 player, let alone one of the calibre of Williams, whose French Open title three weeks ago took her majors haul to 16. Victory was also her 75th in her last 78 matches, a run that stretches back to her shock first round departure at Roland Garros in 2012, the worst Grand Slam exit of her career. Tuesday's 32nd successive win took her to within just three of the record set by older sister Venus in 2000. “I never think about the run, I ...

What a fantastic night for combat sports yesterday. Seems like boxing decided yesterday was knockout night with 5 KO's total. None more impressive then Adonis Stevenson's brutal one punch KO of Chad Dawson. Then the UFC on Fuel 10 had a record setting 8 submissions. Add to that a 1st round barnburner KO of Feijao by Thiago Silva. Dominating performances by Rafael Nadal & Serena Williams at the French Open. The Bruins make their way to the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Red Sox take 2 out of 3 games & Jimmie Johnson wins at Pocono Overall a fantastic weekend for sports fans.

We have to make the Corporate World pay homage and stop the stereo-typical disrespect that has been shown to Serena since her youth. I applaud Chris Evert for her leadership as a tennis legend in trying to help Serena get the respect ...

Serena Williams adds to her historical resume. Today's French Open title was her second and 16th Grand Slam title. (Five Australian Opens, five Wimbledons, four U.S. Opens.) Serena ranks sixth on the women's Grand Slam championships list, two behind Chris Evert and Martina Navritolova, who are tied for fourth with 18 GS titles each. Margaret Court leads with 24, Steffi Graf second with 22. Helen Wills Moody with 19. Graf likely would have had a lot more except for being stabbed during a tournament.

Maria Sharapova says she will have to "try something different" when she faces world number one Serena Williams in Saturday's French Open final. Williams is on a 30-match winning streak and thrashed Sara Errani in 46 minutes in the semi-finals. Defending champion Sharapova, who battled past Victoria Azarenka in three sets, last beat Williams in 2004 and has lost their past 12 matches. Sharapova, 26, has won just one set in their past 11 matches and lost in straight sets on the Madrid clay only last month.

Tough times fill Williams&French Open history | 9Digg - What the web is talking about right now (AP) — For a decade, the French Open has presented more problems for Serena Williams than any of the other Grand Slam tournaments.
Watching Serena Williams flatten Sara Errani in their semifinal on Thursday, and thinking back over Serena's head-to-head history against Maria Sharapova, you might wonder whether a preview is even necessary in the case of this year’s French Open women’s final. You might be right, too—Serena vs. Maria, despite being No. 1 vs. No. 2, has the makings of an epic blowout that renders all analysis moot. But they’re still going to play the match, so I will still do the preview. And I will start by saying that stranger things than a Sharapova upset have happened. I can't recall any right at this moment, but still, there must have been something... * (1) Serena Williams vs. (2) Maria Sharapova Williams leads their head to head 13-2, and leads 3-0 on clay The head-to-head record, while one-sided, doesn’t give you a full idea of how thoroughly Serena has dominated this match-up.

I predict that Serena Williams will do to Maria Sharapova on Saturday what she did to poor little Sara Errani today -- demolish her. Maria might win a couple more games than Sara's token one, but Serena has had Maria's number for years.

Women's Semi Finals Today Predictions: Pre Tournament favorite Serena Williams who has won 29 matches in a row (count em!) will overpower Italian Sara Errani in 2 sets. Errani upset hard hitting Sam Stosur in last year's semis, but Serena has the upper hand here with a 5-0 record against Errani. In a more dramatic encounter sparks will be flying and the grunt-o-metre will be working overtime when French Open holder Maria Sharapova comes face-to-face with Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka. There is no love lost between these two women. I predict Victoria Azarenka will tip Maria Sharapova in a tight 3 set match. Azarenka has been the more consistent player the past 3 weeks and she is looking to capture her second consecutive Grand Slam title.
Sir Zik says: Today at French Open Maria Sharapova is playing against my darling Victoria Azarenka. I think Sharapova will beat vika and my sister Serena Williams will beat Sara Errani easily. I am saying to all of that Serena and warrior Rafael Nadal will win the French Open consecutively.
We got back very late last night! Had a great time in France. We met some interesting people and have lots of funny stories to tell. The Credentials Day at the French Open was the absolute best! Our seats were middle court, two rows behind the box seats. Guess they were about 10 rows up. We got showered with all kinds of perks, even got to watch David Ferrer practice, along with Baghdatis, Raonic, Lopez, Tipsaravic, Isner, etc. Saw some great matches, Serena Williams, what a freaking BEAST! Monfils, Isner. Trying to get back on regular time track. LOL ~~~ Be back at the gym Friday or Saturday. Amazingly, I only gained 2 pounds while in France! We must of walked 7- 10 miles a day. I only remember seeing about 6 heavy French people the entire time we were there. Ate like you wouldn't believe, all I can say, is the French definitely have the food thing figured out. Biggest problem there is, almost everyone smokes ~~~UGH~~~ Oddly, my family immigrated from France, through Canada, then mingled wi ...

Matches of the Day – Day 10 1. Serena Williams vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova One of the most important wins for Svetlana Kuznetsova en route to the 2009 French Open was her victory over Serena Williams, the Russian outlasting her American opponent in a pulsating 3-setter. Williams will be out for revenge for that loss and, though she holds a 6-2 career advantage over Kuznetsova, Williams will not be taking the veteran Russian lightly in this clash. In the midst of another lengthy winning streak and having barely lost a match in the last 12 months, it’s hard to go against Williams, although Kuznetsova seems to have found a new lease of life in recent times. I’ll back Williams but I can see the Russian challenging for at least a set. Williams in 2. 2. Tommy Robredo vs. David Ferrer Spanish veteran Tommy Robredo did the impossible again in round 4, once more coming back from 2 sets to love down to record a victory.

Most of the top seeded players have made it through the first three rounds of the French Open, the exceptions being Tomas Berdych, Li Na and Caroline Wozniaki.
