EASTBOURNE, England -- Angelique Kerber of Germany reached her second Aegon International final with a 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-3 victory over 2009 champion Caroline Wozniacki on Friday. Wholesale Nike Shoes . She will play Madison Keys for her fourth career title, after the American teenager defeated Britains Heather Watson 6-3, 6-1. Kerber, who finished as runner-up to Tamira Paszek in 2012, challenged her Danish opponent throughout the 2-hour, 39-minute semifinal of fiercely contested baseline rallies. "We had such tough battles in the past and today," Kerber said. "You know actually before you walk on court it will be a tough one. "You will run a lot, so, you know, you just prepare your mind to be there for every single point, and just try to play your best tennis against her." Wozniacki, at first, held the upper hand by being the more aggressive player as she frequently came to the net, but after holding off three break points as she served out the opening set her challenge began to lose its intensity. Kerber held a set point at 5-4 before winning the last six points of the tiebreaker to claim the second set, and in the third she finished strongly by sweeping five of the last six games. "I probably should have closed it in two sets, being up a break and then being up in the tiebreaker," Wozniacki said. "But, you know, it happens. Im looking forward to Wimbledon now." She was also in a good frame of mind after her engagement to golfer Rory McIlroy was ended. "Life throws you things that you didnt expect, but you just have to embrace it and move forward," she said. "It makes you stronger. Im in a good place right now." Keys, the youngest player in the top 50 at 19, will be contesting her first WTA final after previously being stopped in the semis three times.

Given that two starters were getting over illness or injury and a third was lumbering through the second half with a new leg injury, Chicagos 81-72 win over the Bucks on Friday suits him just fine. Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 13 rebounds in his first game back from a right knee injury and Mike Dunleavy Jr. added 18 points for the Bulls, who won their fourth straight. Joakim Noah had eight points, 10 boards and seven assists after missing practice while feeling under the weather. "You guys are into the esthetics. Im into the wins," Thibodeau said when asked about the scratch-and-claw victory after the Bulls nearly squandered a 15-point lead. Jimmy Butler finished with 10 points and said he was fine afterward after getting hit in the thigh. The Bucks opened the fourth quarter with a 7-0 run to get to within three. A long jumper from Ersan Ilyasova (14 points) got the Bucks to 71-70 with 5:42 left. But the Bulls hung on, even after Boozer missed two foul shots with 3:42 left with his team up by three. The Bucks missed their final 11 shots, failing to hit after Brandon Knights bucket with 5:09 left. The Bulls havent allowed an opponent to score more than 87 in the four-game streak. "Tried to contest shots, trying to rebound, making them shoot over our hands and it worked out," Boozer said in relaying the reasons for the late defensive stand. He didnt look bothered by the sore right knee that kept him out two games. The Bucks missed two opportunities to tie it after Knight (12 points) and O.J. Mayo (16 points) misfired on open 3s on back-to-back possessions with under 3:30 left. Dunleavy answered with an off-balance layup to get the lead back to 77-72, then hit two foul shots to get to a seven-point lead with about 1 minute left. "We had some good looks but they just didnt fall for us," coach Larry Drew said. "We forced a couple down the stretch that probably werent the best selection but going down the stretch, if you make plays youll win if you dont, you wont win."t; After a slow start, Chicago gained traction in the third behind the bullish Boozer. Wholesale Air Max Free Shipping. With both knees heavily wrapped in ice after the game, Boozer said he felt great and made it a point to thanks the trainers. Boozer grabbed eight rebounds alone in the quarter. Larry Sanders finished with one point and nine boards before fouling out with 1:16 left in the game. He was in foul trouble most of the night in large part due to the active Boozer. Boozer rebounded a missed 3 and saved the possession just before landing out of bounds. Chicago whipped the ball around the perimeter and Jimmy Butler (10 points) hit a 3 from the wing to make it 59-47 with about 6:50 left in the third. The energy and offensive rhythm that Milwaukee had in building a seven-point lead after the first quarter disappeared in the third before re-emerging to start the fourth. But once again, the NBA-worst Bucks (7-28) fell short trying to rebound from a second-half deficit. "Everybody might be a little down as far as the season has gone for us. Weve lost a lot of close games and it is building up on us right now but you cant think about that," forward Epke Udoh said. "We just have to be ourselves and be better the next game." Foul shooting and the long-range touch of former Dunleavy, who went 3 for 3 from 3-point territory in the second quarter, helped the Bulls turn a 27-20 deficit in the first quarter into a 47-45 halftime lead. Boozer had 15 first-half points and went 7 of 8 from the foul line. NOTES: Asked if he had spoken to injured guard Derrick Rose since the trade this week of Luol Deng, coach Tom Thibodeau said the two talked about the team in general all the time. "Derricks good. Derricks good. Hes locked into his rehab, dealing with things as he should be." Rose is out for the year with a right knee injury. ...
