Radwanska wins WTA Finals

first_imgSINGAPORE (AP):Agnieszka Radwanska beat fourth-seeded Petra Kvitova 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 yesterday at the WTA Finals to clinch the biggest title of her career.The fifth-seeded Pole’s previous best at the season-ending championship was reaching the semi-finals in 2012 and 2014.”Definitely I didn’t expect it at all,” a tearful Radwanska said.Radwanska is the first player to win the tournament after a losing 1-2 record in the round-robin stage – and the first Polish winner.”I lost first two matches, but it’s not like I was playing bad,” Radwanska said. “Then I think I got used to conditions, used to the surface.”Radwanska led by a set and 3-1 in the second before Kvitova settled into the match to win seven of the next eight games.”I really played well in the second when I came back and tried to push her a little bit,” Kvitova said.The Czech led 2-0 in the decider before Radwanska fought back to 3-3 and then won the last three games to take the title in two hours, five minutes.last_img read more

STRANDED! ANOTHER UNFORTUNATE DRIVER CAUGHT SHORT ON DONEGAL BEACH

first_imgThe car is caught short by the incoming tide on Rossnowlagh Beach. Pic by Surfers Bar.Another driver is caught by the incoming tide at Rossnowlagh beach.Last month it was an ice-cream van and before that it was another family car.The latest incident at the popular coastline resort saw an overseas visitor left stranded as the tide turned quickly. It’s understood the car could not be moved as it became stuck in the soft sand.Although many locals are aware of the dangers of the beach, many visitors are not.The owner of this SAAB car eventually recovered the car but a considerable amount of water damage was done to the vehicle.Perhaps it’s time the council considered erecting even bigger signs warning motorists of the dangers of driving onto the beach.
