US eliminated from Davis Cup Finals after loss to Colombia
U.S. captain Mardy Fish hinted at a lack of passion within his team after the record 32-time champion Americans were eliminated from the Davis Cup Finals by following up a lopsided loss to host Italy with a humbling defeat to Colombia on Sunday. The Americans left Turin 0-2 when Reilly Opelka and Jack Sock retired from the decisive doubles match while trailing 3-0 in the opening set against the accomplished Colombian pair of Juan-Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah. Daniel Elahi Galan, ranked No. 111, had leveled the series at 1-1 by beating John Isner 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5).news.yahoo.com
Jessica Korda rallies to beat Kang in playoff at LPGA opener
It was the sixth LPGA victory for the 27-year-old Korda, her last one coming nearly three years ago. “I knew I was going to have to go low today,” said Jessica Korda. Saturday, Jessica Korda became the sixth player in LPGA history to shoot 60 or better with her sparkling 11-under 60. Jessica Korda had owned the back nine all week (she would play it in 21-under par despite her three closing bogeys Friday). Kang, also seeking her sixth LPGA victory, had spoken all week about not being able to prepare for the event as she normally would.
