“At some point, I was ready to let it go and just lay on the court and let them take
Customized Boston Red Sox Jersey me out of here,” Kuznetsova said in a court-side interview after the match in Singapore.
“But I was just trying to stay in there and hang in there,” added the 31-year-old

My hair or the match?

“Just playing every point,” Kuznetsova said, when asked how she managed to win the match just 48 hours after her victory on home soil.
After the match, Kuznetsova told reporters she decided to go for the cut because her hair was in the way.
“I was trying to put it behind my headband, but my hair is very thick and heavy,” she said. “In the end, when I was hitting the forehands, every time I would hit a
Custom Orioles Jersey good shot… it would hit my eye every time and I was
Men’s Baltimore Orioles Home White Flex Base Authentic Custom Jersey struggling.
“I thought, ‘okay, what’s more important now – my hair which I can let grow or the match?’
Radwanska had no idea Kuznetsova had given herself a trim, joking with reporters: “Good thing she didn’t cut anything else.”

“Ninja”

After trailing 4-1 in the opening set, Kuznetsova regained the initiative with aggressive play to get back to 5-5. Blasting a backhand down the line to set up a break point, she got the break with a forehand passing.
Serving for the first set at 6-5, Kuznetsova missed two set points before taking the set with her third.
Nicknamed “the ninja” for her trick shots from improbable angles, Radwanska has been voted a WTA Fan Favorite five times in a row.

Tentative shot

Pinning an increasingly tired-looking Kuznetsova to the backhand corner, it looked like Radwanska was on the way to victory when she clinched an early break in the decider.
Kuznetsova seemed so exhausted, she appeared to be on the verge of tears at the start of the third set. Trailing 2-0, the Russian cut off some of her hair and then promptly broke back to level the match at 2-2.
Down 4-2, Kuznetsova fought back to 4-4, only for Radwanska to regain the lead and serve for the match at 5-4. But a tentative backhand on her first match point sealed her fate, as Kuznetsova went on to force the break and win the contest

Personalized Atlanta Braves Jersey Airline shifts focus to Africa flights

In an effort to its boost market share, Turkish Airlines is building its transfer business, in which passengers from China can change planes in Istanbul, a
Personalized Atlanta Braves Jersey company executive said.Men’s Atlanta Braves Majestic White Home Flexbase Authentic Collection Custom Jersey.

The Istanbul-based company has been tailoring travel routes to Africa in a bid to woo Chinese tourists, said Ma Lin, sales manager of Turkish Airlines China.

The shift in sales strategy comes after Turkish tourism was hit hard as the
Customized Atlanta Braves Jersey country experienced terrorist attacks and
Men’s Customized Atlanta Braves Authentic Alternate Road Navy Blue Jersey political turbulence in the first half of the year, Ma said.

“It has exerted some impact on the business in China, but it is manageable,” Ma said.

The company has started recommending African countries, such as Tunisia and
Custom MLB Baseball Jersey Morocco, as destinations. Chinese passengers flying to Africa with Turkish Airlines can reach 48 destinations in 27 countries.

The airline’s seat occupancy, according to Ma, was 85 percent in September, higher than the industry average, and the passenger base was solid, fueled by the outbound travel frenzy during China’s seven-day National Day (Oct 1-7) holiday.

Ma said sales in October and November in China are expected to be stable.

Tourism in African countries has plenty of room for growth, compared with that Custom Braves Jersey in mature markets like Southeast Asia, Europe, Japan and South Korea, said Romeo Tai, North China representative at travel agency

Custom Washington Redskins Jersey Conor Gillaspie faceplanted into the camera well and somehow held onto the ball

With the Giants taking on the Dodgers on the final day of the season — with a
Custom Washington Redskins Jersey Wild Card spot on the line — and with Vin Scully calling it for the final game of his 67-year career, you can’t blame Giants third baseman Conor Gillaspie for wanting a little screentime. Unfortunately, he
Men’s Nike Custom Made Washiongton Redskins Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Cheap took that desire a little too literally.

When Chase Utley popped up a ball down the third-base line in the top of the third inning, Gillaspie tracked it to the camera well and gravity did the rest.

Not only did Gillaspie somehow hold onto the ball as he fell into the photog’s
Custom Chicago Cubs Jersey well, but he got his very own Vin Scully pun too: Men’s Authentic Custom Washington Nationals Home White Jersey with Commemorative 10th Anniversary Patch “All’s well that ends well.”

Gillaspie told MLB.com’s Chris Haft after the game that he didn’t even look at how close he was to the pit. “Honestly, if I looked I might have second-guessed going for it,” the third baseman said. “In a situation like today where we have to
Custom Chicago Bears Jersey win, if that ball was close enough for me to c
Men’s Custom Chicago Cubs Authentic Throwback Royal Blue Alternate Cooperstown Jersey atch, I would have dove anywhere, any place, anytime to try to catch it.”

After making the grab — making sure to show it to the umpire as quickly as
Custom Washington Nationals Jersey possible — Gillaspie knew he had made a pretty special play. “It was one of those moments where, as a player, you won’t ever forget. Everything has to happen perfect to have even an opportunity at a
