Strycova-Cropped

Teenage qualifier Marketa Vondrousova completed a dream week by winning her first WTA Tour title at the Ladies Open Biel Bienne in Switzerland.

World No.18 Strycova will face Marketa Vondrousova in an all Czech semi-final after she eliminated Kristyna Pliskova 6-2 7-5.

Tomas Hertl: Tomas Hertl and Sharks blanked by Oilers
It was a pretty drastic turnaround for the Sharks , who had won just once in 25 games all season when trailing after two periods. Thornton looked good skating but didn't do many sudden stops or changes of direction that could put pressure on the knee.

Hsieh and Romania's Monica Niculescu rallied from a set down to edge Swiss duo Timea Bacsinszky and Martina Hingis 5-7, 6-3, 10-7 in 1 hour, 45 minutes. The Czech player, who started from the qualifying draw, won eight matches in a row to conquer her first title at WTA Level at 17 age.

Schiavone played in WTA events in her native Italy before Vondrousova was born in June 1999.

Legal documents show Akilov had asked for Eriksson to be replaced by a Sunni Muslim lawyer, but the court denied his request. Security services have said that he had figured in intelligence reports but they had not viewed him as a militant threat.

"I'm very happy and emotional", said Schiavone, who is playing her final season.

"I didn't know I could play this good", she said. "Once I got into qualies, I nearly lost my first match, but I got better and better from there".

He has also been accused of planning adductions and murder, as well as leading an Isis command unit in Iraq in 2014. We saw a lot of times on TV and it was far away from us, even when it was in Istanbul which is in my country.

On Sunday, the left-handed Vondrousova overcame double-fault problems on her serve to save 13 of the 14 break-point chances that 99th-ranked Kontaveit had. I was just trying to stay with her, do what I always do: fight and not give up.
