Early Saturday sports news…

On Friday night, 16 Louisville survived a scare from Cincinnati winning in OT, 34-31.

In Turkey, the semi finals of the Women’s Year End are completed.  Serena Williams easily defeated Radwanska 6-2, 6-1.  The other semi final featured 1 Azarenka and 2 Sharapova (battle of the screamers), and in this one, Sharapova got the better of the world no. 1, 6-2, 6-1.  A decisive win for Sharapova but Azarenka raised her index finger as she left the court, perhaps to remind “everyone” she is the year end no. 1!  Does not seem to be a lot off warm fuzzy feelings between these two.  Sharapova will get to battle Serena tomorrow in the final and she has not taken a set from S. Williams since 2008.  Will be a tough task for her tomorrow!

In the Swiss Indoors (don’t read if you do not want to know, as it will be on later today via tape delay!), Del Potro advances by beating R. Gasquet of France, 6-2, 6-2.  Roger Federer is currently playing P. Mathieu, also of France, and he won the first set 7-5 and they are on serve in set #2. (Update, Fed wins second set 6-4 and will play Del Potro in final tomorrow!)

Stay tuned!
