Post o-time X Games gold medalist, fell on his first run and w
Auckland, New Zealand (SportsNetwork.com) - American Venus Williams came back from a set down to beat Caroline Wozniacki in Saturdays title match of the ASB Classic. The third-seeded Williams defeated Wozniacki, the top seed, by a 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 margin. Williams had never lost a set in five previous meetings with Wozniacki. In the first set she was serving so well, said Williams. She had an amazing first serve percentage, all those amazing passing shots, even her mis-hits were too good. But I just tried to stay level-headed in the second set and focus on holding, and cut down on my unforced errors too, and it worked for me today. Williams was last years Auckland runner-up, dropping a 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 decision to Ana Ivanovic. The 34-year-old Williams went 1-3 in finals last year. After the loss to Ivanovic in Auckland, she beat Alize Cornet in February for her lone title of the season in Dubai, then lost finals last summer in Montreal and Quebec City. It was Williams 46th WTA title. Its a wonderful way to start the year, Williams added. Last year I started the year with the (Auckland) final and went to play a few more finals in the year and had a great year, so Id like to take it that much further this year as well. Wozniacki reached three finals in 2014, winning in Istanbul last July for her lone title of the year. She then lost consecutive finals in September, first falling to Serena Williams in the U.S. Open before losing to Ivanovic in Tokyo two weeks later.

According to the Red Wings Twitter feed, Zetterberg plans to practice with the team on Thursday and is aiming for a second round comeback.Two Canadian snowboarders who were critical of Shaun Whites decision to pull out of the Olympic slopestyle competition were among eight riders who qualified Thursday for the events final. Max Parrot posted the days best score, a 97.50 in his second run. Sebastien Toutant also made it through to Saturdays final as the Sochi Olympics opened with one of the new events debuting at the games. White, the American star known for his daring halfpipe tricks, withdrew from the event on Wednesday, saying he wanted to concentrate on winning his third straight gold medal in the halfpipe. He hurt his wrist during a training run on Tuesday but initially indicated he would not miss the event. His decision to withdraw was mocked by Parrot and Toutant on social media. In a since-deleted tweet, Parrot said he thought White was "scared" to compete and "knows he wont be able to win the slopes." "I just think me and Seb said something all the other riders would have loved to tell, but maybe are scared to tell," Parrot told TSN on Thursday. "He choked a couple contests this year with not really good reasons. With him here he has the potential to be...Why choke on it for nothing?" Toutant tweeted, "Its easy to find excuses to pull out of a contest when you think you cant win." Toutant also deleted his message, but clarified his stance after his runs on Thursday. "I think its sad for alll Americans who trained hard for that spot," he added.dddddddddddd"Cant replace him - pretty sad. If you think its too dangerous, go do something else." The slopestyle course drew criticism as being potentially dangerous and was modified after Norways Torstein Horgmo broke his collarbone on Monday. The event, making its Olympic debut, features riders doing tricks over rails and jumps, like skateboarders in a city park only down a snow-covered trail. Parrots first run was smooth, but for a dragged hand at the end of one of his jumps, and drew a score of 91.75. The reigning Winter X Games gold medalist was better on his second run, which had few obvious flaws. Toutant scored a 74.25 on his first run and qualified through his second with a score of 87.25. Canadian Mark McMorris, a two-time X Games gold medalist, fell on his first run and will have to qualify through the semifinals. McMorris, who suffered a broken rib at the X Games last month, pulled off a triple-cork on his second run but earned an 89.25, not among the four best riders in his heat. Americans Sage Kotsenburg, Ryan Stassel and Charles Guldemond will also have to try to qualify through the semifinals, which are Saturday. Moving directly to the final with Parrot and Toutant were Norways Staale Sandbech and Gjermund Braaten, Finlands Peetu Piiroinen and Roope Tonteri, Great Britains Jamie Nicholls and Swedens Sven Thorgren.
