erican players who I thought had made it, but obviously not.Second-ranked Serena Williams pulled out of the finals for the secon Antworten

SINGAPORE -- Madison Keys is the first American other than Serena and Venus Williams to earn a berth at the year-end WTA Finals in more than a decade.The last American outside of a Williams at the finals was Lindsay Davenport, a former coach to Keys, in 2005.Keys debut in the WTA Finals, starting on Sunday, came courtesy of her winning a second career title in Birmingham, England, and reaching finals at Rome and Montreal.She also played in the Olympic semifinals, losing to Petra Kvitova for the bronze medal.Being here is a huge accomplishment for me, Keys said. I definitely want to ... prove that Ive worked really hard to get here, and Im here for a reason.Keys, who climbed into the top-10 rankings at No. 7 this month, is also the first American to debut in the top 10 since Serena Williams in 1999.That (fact) was definitely really surprising, Keys said. There have been a lot of great American players who I thought had made it, but obviously not.Second-ranked Serena Williams pulled out of the finals for the second consecutive year. She won the title in 2014, the first year the event moved to Singapore. Williams hasnt played since a U.S. Open semifinal loss to Karolina Pliskova, and cited a persistent right shoulder injury.Keys will face Simona Halep in her first of three round-robin matches on Sunday. They are in the Red Group along with world No. 1 Angelique Kerber and Dominika Cibulkova.The White Group consists of defending champion Agnieszka Radwanska, French Open champion Garbine Muguruza, U.S. Open finalist Pliskova, and Svetlana Kuznetsova.Kuznetsova, a two-time Grand Slam singles winner, won the Kremlin Cup in Moscow on Saturday to take the last spot, and qualify for her first finals since 2009.Kerber overtook Williams for the No. 1 ranking after she won the U.S. Open last month, her second career Grand Slam title. In January, Kerber upset Williams in the Australian Open final.Kerber, the first German woman since Steffi Graf to attain the top ranking, also won the Olympic silver medal in Rio.As a player, I change a lot, Kerber said of the season. I have much more confidence right now. I know how to play the big tournaments. Also, mentally, how to win really tough matches in tough situations or like playing finals in big tournaments, big stages.She didnt advance from the round-robin in three previous WTA Finals.Radwanska arrived in Singapore to defend her title after winning three tournaments this year -- Shenzhen, New Haven, and Beijing.There is always a little bit more pressure when you really have to defend a big title, a lot of points, Radwanska said. But on the other hand, when youre top five, top 10, you are pretty much defending (points) every week. Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys .

Manning was the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team Friday. GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Davante Adams woke up Thursday not knowing if he would be cleared to play after spending a few days in the NFLs concussion protocol.The doctors gave him the go-ahead in the early afternoon.By the time the night was over, the third-year receiver had the best game of his young career.Adams had 13 catches for a career-high 132 yards and two scores, Aaron Rodgers threw for 326 yards and three touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers overpowered the Chicago Bears in the second half for a 26-10 victory.In a sense, a statement game. Im ready to play. I felt good, Adams said about the significance of his milestone day.Rodgers reached a milestone, too. He was 39 of 56, setting a franchise mark for completions in a game.The Bears (1-6) are down to their third-string quarterback after Brian Hoyer, who was starting for the already injured Jay Cutler, left in the second quarter with a broken left arm. Matt Barkley was 6 of 15 for 81 yards and two interceptions in place of Hoyer.I dont think anybodys proud of what weve done so far, Chicago tight end Zach Miller said. You can describe it in many ways. Its no fun.The injury to Hoyer had the Bears trying to lean on their running game. It didnt work, either.The Packers (4-2) needed to lean on Rodgers with injuries depleting the running back position . Playmakers emerged in the receiving corps.Ty Montgomery, a second-year wideout who also lines up in the backfield, took the majority of snaps at running back. He ran for nine carries on 60 yards and caught 10 passes for 66 yards.Adams took advantage of overmatched cornerback DeVaunte Bausby with the Bears top cornerback, Tracy Porter, defending Jordy Nelson much of the night.Veteran Randall Cobb had 11 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown.Its fun to get those guys involved. When youre looking at matchups, a lot of times that dictates where the football goes, Rodgers said.The Bears were not having fun, especially in the second half.It started promisingly enough after Leonard Floyds stripped Rodgers on a sack on third-and-10 from the Packers 15 and recovered the fumble in the end zone. That gave Chicago a 10-6 lead 30 seconds into the third quarter.The Packers scored touchdowns on their next three drives. The Bears never crossed the Green Bay 42 in the second half.ddddddddddddther notes and takeaways from the game:HOYER HURT: The quarterback left early in the second quarter after getting hit by Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews on an incompletion on third-and-6 from midfield. The right-handed Hoyer looked as if he landed on his left arm. He was attended to by trainers on the field for a couple minutes before going to the locker room. Hoyer was 4 of 11 for 49 yards.The good news for the Bears is that they now have 10 days until their next game, on Oct. 31 against Minnesota. Maybe theyll have Cutler by then, too.SHORT AND SWEET: The Packers moved effectively on short gains most of the night, but couldnt break into the end zone until Adams caught the first of his two touchdown receptions with 9:11 left in the third quarter for a 13-10 lead. Rodgers took advantage of Chicagos soft underneath coverage. Adams made Nelson-like spin moves to break away from cornerbacks for extra yards.PASS TO RUN: Montgomery got the start in the backfield with running backs Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee) out. He and Cobb have similar, versatile skill sets. With a short week to prepare, the Packers didnt have much time to get newly-acquired running back Knile Davis up to speed on the playbook. But Montgomery filled the void in the backfield.The short passing game is like an extension of the running game in games like tonight when youre going with a lot of four-receiver packages with Ty back there, Rodgers said. Im really proud of the way he played. Theres a lot to build on.BIG FLOYD: The Bears only touchdown came from Floyd, who had been limited in practice this week with a calf injury. He has got those kinds of abilities. Its been problematic a little bit having him out there, but it was good to have him back out there tonight, coach John Fox said.INJURY REPORTBears: Besides Hoyer, RG Kyle Long left in the second quarter with an arm injury.Packers: RB Don Jackson, who was just activated from the practice squad Thursday to replace Lacy, left with a hand injury.---AP NFL website: and Genaro Armas at: Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
