Wozniacki books Siniakova final in Bastad


Caroline Wozniacki breezed past Kateryna Kozlova to reach the semi-finals of the Ericsson Open, while Peng Shuai moved a step closer to winning the Jiangxi Open for a second time on Friday.

"It's really wonderful for me", seventh-seeded Siniakova said at the post-match trophy presentation.

"Last year was really good", said the 2016 Bastad runner-up, "and so I'm so happy that I came back because I couldn't imagine a better week".

Sam Shepard, playwright and actor, dies at 73
The actor is survived by his three children, Jesse , Hannah , and Walker Shepard , and his sisters' Sandy and Roxanne Rogers . His most recent acting turn was playing the patriarch of a troubled Florida Keys family in the Netflix series " Bloodline ".

Wozniacki, who has a season-leading 42 wins under her belt, was aiming to take home her first title after finishing runner-up in Doha, Dubai, Miami, and Eastbourne. It s one of the tournaments where I ve done my best, and it s one of my favourite tournaments of the year.

The 56th-ranked Siniakova, who had injury problems of her own, took advantage of Wozniacki's inconsistent serving to win 6-3, 6-4 for her second career title. Entering the 2017 season she seemed to be a key player on tour and, in a way, she has lived up to some expectations as she is now the World No. 6. Florian Mayer, 33 years old and 101 in the rankings, had been looking for the first title of his career. Han Xinyun will take on Peng after seeing off Arina Rodionova 6-1 7-5.

Siniakova was playing in the Swedish Open final for the second year in a row after losing last year to German Laura Siegemund.

Arpaio's lawyers, said Judge Snow's 2011 order "was not clear and definite, and Judge Bolton did not adequately address that". The statement said Bolton violated the Constitution by issuing the verdict without reading it to Arpaio in court.

Siniakova ultimately prevailed 6-3 6-4 against the top seed, coming from 3-1 down in the second set. Harrison beat fifth-seeded Briton Kyle Edmund 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 6-4 to advance.

The 147-ranked Wang will now face Nao Hibino, a 6-2 6-3 victor against Lu Jing-Jing.

She is on the players' list for that event, an important one for WTA players to do well in.
