Ukraine's Elina Svitolina Wins, Russia's Rublev Loses In Tennis Finals

Sasnovich was playing in her first final on the WTA tour and her nerves showed in the early stages as Svitolina broke her early and raced away to a 3-1 lead.

The final was a somewhat unexpected match-up after Garbiñe Muguruza and other seeds fell early in the event, the gulf in class between the finalists as well as the rankings could be seen throughout the 66-minute championship match.

Svitolina, having landed her first silverware of the season, heads to the Australian Open with her eyes fixed firmly on a maiden Grand Slam trophy.

"The risotto didn't help me yesterday to win this match".

After losing the first set, the No. 3 seed stamped his authority on the second, converting two break points to force a decider for a third consecutive match this week.

Today, Latvia's second-best ranked lady tennis player Anastasija Sevastova lost to Belarus' Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-7, 4-6 in the semifinal of the Brisbane WTA Premier tennis tournament, reports LETA.

"I had a good serve, good play from the baseline".

Sevastova would immediately answer as from 30-all Sasnovich double-faulted and a backhand error put the set back on serve at 4-3. "There's lots of things", Svitolina said.

"But (making the) final, it's not enough for me".

"I have time to prepare for the Australian Open and I hope to be ready mentally, physically, yeah, to be good there", Sasnovich said. Svitolina was even more dominant in the second set, racing to a 5-0 lead before Sasnovich even got on the board. The finalist maybe some people forgot him, but the victor, no one.

Clinton Foundation probed by Federal Bureau of Investigation again
The New York Times noted that a previous investigation of the organization was shut down in 2016 for a reported lack of evidence. On Friday morning, Nick Merrill, Clinton's chief spokesman, said the investigation was "disgraceful".

She was far too strong for Sasnovich, who struggled to cope both with the Ukrainian's serve and her relentless barrage of groundstrokes from the back of the court.

The 23-year-old Minsk native knocked No. 6 seed Kristina Mladenovic out in the first round and defeated last year's runner-up Alize Cornet, ranked 50 places higher, in the quarter-finals.

In the semi-final against Karolina Pliskova, Elina Svitolina had made a sluggish start, quickly finding herself 4-0 down. I'm just 88, you know, so I have nothing to lose.
