CHENNAI, India -- Stanislas Wawrinka and Edouard Roger-Vasselin registered hard-fought wins to set up the final of the Chennai Open on Saturday. DeShone Kizer Jersey . Top-seeded Wawrinka saw a resurgent Vasek Pospisil of Canada concede their semifinal at 6-4, 5-5 due to a back strain while Frenchman Roger-Vasselin sweated it out against Spanish player Marcel Granollers for a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 victory. The eighth-ranked Wawrinka was surprised when Pospisil, the fifth seed from Vancouver, withdrew just after he had struck rhythm following some unforced errors at crucial junctures. Wawrinka, the only top-10 player in the fray, won the first set as he went a break up in the fifth game when Pospisil made two errors and double-faulted two times. The script seemed to be following similar lines in the second set as the Swiss managed a break in the seventh game with Pospisil double-faulting twice. But Pospisil broke back for 4-4 but lasted only a few more points. "It was a really tough match and I felt sorry for him because he was playing very well," Wawrinka said. "My focus is to be aggressive. Im playing my best tennis since last year and I think itll be a good final against Edouard, who is a good friend." Wawrinka and Roger-Vasselin are 1-1 from previous matchups. Wawrinka will be playing for his fifth ATP title, and second in Chennai after victory in 2012. Seventh-seeded Roger-Vasselin seeks his maiden ATP title. In his semi, Roger-Vasselin made the only break of the first set in the sixth game and faced stiff resistance thereafter. Granollers went a break up in the third game of the second set and held on, and the decider was also tight. Granollers broke in the first game but failed to hold his serve in the fourth after warding off four break points. Roger-Vasselin seized the initiative with some surprise forays to the net, breaking serve in the sixth game to go 4-2 up in what was to be a decisive lead. Roger-Vasselin expressed relief after the two-hour encounter against his sixth-seeded opponent. "Its great to make the final," he said. "It was a long, tough match both mentally and physically. Im relieved to have won. Its been a great start to 2014."Kevin Zeitler Jersey . The stress, the waiting, the whispers about whether he doped during his stellar cycling career, all of it ended when - after nearly two years - federal prosecutors closed an investigation of him last week without bringing any charges. Marcus Martin Jersey . Napoli beat high-flying Hellas Verona 3-0 to keep up the pressure on the top two while AC Milan had another disappointing night as four goals from teenage forward Domenico Berardi saw relegation-threatened Sassuolo come back from two goals down to win 4-3.WASHINGTON -- There were no sports channel highlight shows the last time the Golden State Warriors won nine in a row in the same season. Even if there were, the top-10 compilers surely would have been hard-pressed to find a Gus Williams-to-Rick Barry moment that looked anything like the off-the-backboard play executed Sunday night by Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut. Klay Thompson scored 26 points, Curry and Bogut connected on a play worthy of the NBAs slam dunk contest, and the Warriors won their ninth in row, beating the Washington Wizards 112-96. The Warriors pulled away by turning a tie game at halftime into a laugher in the third quarter, opening the period with a 30-5 run that included a sequence in which Curry drove into the paint and sent the ball flying out of his hand and off the glass. The carom went right to a leaping Bogut, who timed the play perfectly for a dunk, then stared at his right hand with mouth agape as he ran down court. "I didnt know what was going on," Bogut said. "I didnt know if he was shooting or throwing a lob, but I kind of knew it was a bad shot if it was a shot. I just tried to get where the ball was coming." Curry had a got-away-with-it smile after the play. He described it as something that happened, well, accidentally on purpose. "I made a decision to pick my dribble up and look for Bogut. Whoever was guarding him made a decision to stay with him, and my only option was to stick my hand out at the last second to redirect it," Curry said. "Thankfully it hit the right spot on the backboard, and Bogue made a quick reaction to go up. Weve never done that before, so it was nice that it worked out." The Warriors hadnt won nine straight in the same season since a 10-game run from Dec. 6-23, 1975. They also had a nine-game regular season winning streak that overlapped the 1990-91 and 1991-92 seasons. Golden State is 5-0 on its season-long, seven-game, 13-day road trip and moved into a tie with the Los Angeles Clippers atop the Pacific Division. The last time the Warriors led a division this late in season was on March 2, 1992.. Ibraheim Campbell Jersey. . "It puts into perspective the history of this franchise, and how far in a short period weve been able to turn it around," Golden State coach Mark Jackson said, "with great moves by ownership, by management, spectacular players that have bought in. And now the thing is sustaining it." Curry and Thompson topped John Wall and Bradley Beal in the battle of the two highest-scoring backcourts in the NBA. Curry scored 14 points on 5-for-17 shooting, but the leagues most turnover-prone player had 10 assists and only two giveaways. Thompson was 9 for 14 from the field, including 6 for 9 from 3-point range. David Lee added 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Bogut finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Wall had 14 points and 10 assists, but he shot 4 for 11, including 1 for 5 in the crucial third quarter. Beal, who remains on a minutes restriction because of a left leg injury, scored nine points and 4-for-15 shooting. The Wizards made only 6 of 21 shots in the third quarter, and they hit bottom when Nene committed two backcourt bad-pass turnovers in a span of six seconds. "Awful," Washington coach Randy Wittman said. "The third quarter? Until we can learn to play through missed shots and not zap your own energy and the energy of your teammates, were going to play like that. Were too much right now a team of front-runners." Nene scored 14 points for the Wizards, who have lost three straight and four of six. "Were not coming out with energy," Beal said. "I think sometimes we feel like were down 20 when its a tie game." NOTES: Warriors F Draymond Green sprained his left ankle and is day to day. ... There was a bizarre call in the first half when Wall crashed into Bogut in the lane. Bogut was initially whistled for a block, but officials conferred during a timeout and ruled that fouls were committed by both players -- leading to a jump ball at centre court. ... Jackson on whether hes developed any superstitions during the winning streak: "I dont believe in superstitions. I call it stupid-stition." Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 NFL Jerseys China China Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
