SHENZHEN, China - Defending champion Li Na and Peng Shuai advanced Friday to set up an all-Chinese final at the Shenzhen Open. http://www.atleticomadridfcteamshop.com/...ic-Jan-Oblak-Jersey/ . Top-seeded Li defeated Germanys Annika Beck 6-1, 6-3, while fifth-seeded Peng advanced in a walkover when American Vania King withdrew with a right thigh injury. "Itll be a tough match tomorrow," Li said. "Were quite familiar with each other and have improved a lot over the last year. But no matter what, Im quite looking forward to the final." Li was leading 6-1, 5-0 Friday when Beck came back to reel off three straight games, but the former French Open champion regrouped to close out the match. King said she began feeling pain in her leg during her win over second-seeded Sara Errani in the second round and pulled out to rest before the Australian Open, which begins on Jan. 13. "It was a really difficult decision for me to pull out because I hate losing and not competing," King said. "But I just have to look out for my health." Saturdays final will be just the second in WTA history featuring two Chinese players. Li lost the first when she retired against Zheng Jie at Oeiras in 2006. Li has a 5-1 record against Peng, including a 4-0 mark at tournaments in China. http://www.atleticomadridfcteamshop.com/...nando-Torres-Jersey/ . That battle continues on Wednesday on TSN2 and TSN.ca with four matches all beginning at 2:45pm et/11:45am pt. On TSN2, David Moyess current club hosts his old one as defending champions Manchester United - unbeaten in 12 matches in all competitions - welcome Romelu Lukaku and surprising Everton. http://www.atleticomadridfcteamshop.com/...ne-Griezmann-Jersey/ . Replay backed him up. Adeiny Hechavarria immediately followed the ruling with a go-ahead sacrifice fly for the Miami Marlins, who held on to beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Sunday completing a three-game sweep.MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves hired former Washington Wizards executive Milt Newton as general manager Friday, with new president of basketball operations Flip Saunders tabbing a familiar face to help him reshape the franchises front office. Newton spent the previous 10 years with the Wizards, most recently serving as vice-president of player personnel. He worked closely with Saunders when Saunders was the head coach for the Wizards, and quickly became a prime candidate to make the move to Minnesota when Saunders took over this summer for the fired David Kahn. "I have followed Milt closely during his career and have always been impressed with his basketball knowledge, work ethic and professionalism," Saunders said in a statement issued by the team. "His front-office experience in the NBA, as well as his ability to combine analytics evaluation with his basketball playing and scouting background will greatly benefit our organization." Saunders will continue to have final say on all organizational issues with the Wolves. But Newton will help with scouting, salary cap management, trade talks and other personnel issues. Rob Babcock also is expected to receive a greater role in scouting and personnell decisions as Saunders works to install some infrastructure in the basketball operations department. http://www.atleticomadridfcteamshop.com/...Jose-Gimenez-Jersey/. Kahn spent the last two years of his four-year stay in Minnesota without an official general manager. The lack of a defined structure beneath Kahn in the front office led to confusion and inefficiency at times, and Saunders said when he was hired that establishing a more organized staff was one of his priorities. Newton got in on the ground floor while the NBA Development League was established, something that appealed to Saunders, who takes great pride in his time as a coach and executive in the old CBA. Newton, whose wife went to high school in the Minneapolis suburb of Minnetonka, also has worked for the Philadelphia 76ers and USA Basketball. "Milt possesses an extraordinary skill set that is a great fit for the Timberwolves organization," NBA Commissioner David Stern said in a statement issued by the Wolves. "His exceptional work ethic and basketball acumen played a large role in the launch and success of the NBA Development League. I am extremely pleased for Milt and the Timberwolves who will no doubt benefit from the tremendous experience he brings to their front office."
