WASHINGTON, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- Former world number one Victoria Azarenka of Belarus rallied to beat 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams of the United States in the US Open on Thursday to reach her first Grand Slam final since 2013, where she will play 2018 champion Naomi Osaka.
After the first two error-strewn sets, Zverev drastically reduced his unforced errors and took control of the semifinal.
"World Table Tennis was born, as the times require, and predictably, this is the perfect opportunity to create great value for the sport, and to demonstrate the true value of the top players and fans," he stated.
Xinjiang bowed out from the semifinals last season due to frail backcourt rotation. Both Yu and Wu will be expected to provide leadership and make up Xinjiang's outside defense.
Fabio Cannavaro's Guangzhou Evergrande stay atop the table with 25 points, seven points clear of Jiangsu Suning.
The visitors' efforts eventually paid off with 67 minutes gone as Hwang had sufficient space on the wing and squared to Poulsen, who made no mistake to double the lead with a well-placed shot into the top left corner.
Ruzomberok succeeded in cutting the lead to one thanks to Kmet who came on top after a series of shots and saves in Dunajska Streda's penalty box and enabled the visitors to push for their fifth draw in six rounds. But their efforts got thwarted by Martin Boda's red card in the final minute of regulation and Dunajska Streda defended the 3-2 lead.
The 21-year-old suffered a severe injury in the Shanghai Diamond League two years ago where he registered a personal best of 8.43 meters to finish second but went hospital after injuring his left foot. He underwent surgeries on the foot and spent more than six months in rehabilitation.
As a result, the game ended with eight men from PSG on the field, while Marseille had nine.
Palace had ended last season with a run of eight games without a win and this victory was exactly what coach Roy Hodgson needed.
However, in a reversal of fortunes from the previous getaway, this time Hamilton got the better start and jumped Bottas to take the lead.
