Indias PV Sindhu ran into rough weather, coming undone against 22 year-old Chinese hope Sun Yu 15-21, 17-21 in the group stage encounter of the Dubai World Superseries Finals on Thursday. With two wins in two matches, over Rio Olympics gold and silver medalists respectively, Sun made the semifinals while Sindhu next faces Carolina Marin in a must-win match on Friday.Surging ahead 4-1 early on, the big-hitting Sun sustained the momentum to make it 6-3 with a brilliant cross court smash. The Chinese 6-plus footer, who pulled off a straight sets upset against world No 2 Marin on Wednesday, despite the latter saving eight match points, used her angled overhead shots and marvelous crosscourt smashes, often landing plum on the line, to keep Sindhu under the pump.The eighth-seeded Indian should be credited for some smart retrieving before Sun turned the lead into a yawning nine point gap at 18-9. Sindhu, however, was in no mood to allow Sun to walk away with the game easily. With Sun on matchpoint, the world No 10 Indian reeled off six straight points before the Chinese could finally manage to sneak a point, to take the first game.In November this year, Sindhu stunned Sun in the final of the China Open Super Series, to win her maiden Super Series crown and become only the third non-Chinese woman to win the title after Mew Choo in 2007 and Saina Nehwal in 2014. For Sun, it turned out to be her sixth final appearance of the year.Sindhu begun on a dominant note in the second game to go 2-0 up before a delightful Sun drop shot caught Sindhu unaware to make it 5-3. Notebook and pen in hand, coach Pullela was seen hollering instructions. A half smash, steeper than a lunging Sun anticipated, had the Indian had 8-6 before the Chinese ballooned a return wide to make it 10-8 in Sindhus favour.The Indian was now clearly struggling with timing her straight smashes, allowing Sun, for the first time in the second game, to move up 16-15. Sindhu dispatched another angular shot wide before Sun galloped to three match points at 20-17 and sealed her semis spot with little ado. Orlando Arcia Jersey .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. Brent Suter Jersey .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. http://www.brewersteamshop.com/Brewers-Ryan-Braun-Kids-Jersey/ . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. Zach Davies Jersey . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. Christian Yelich Jersey . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. STANFORD, Calif. -- As hard as the decision was last winter, Michael Rector knew there were many good reasons to return to Stanford for a fifth season and delay his NFL career.He could pursue his education in human biology, become a more well-rounded receiver to improve his draft status and be better prepared for the NFL. He could also help the Cardinal accomplish one of the few things they havent done yet during their recent run of excellence.Stanford opened fall practice Monday with hopes of doing more than winning a fourth conference title in the past five seasons.Were kind of tired of just winning the Pac-12, Rector said. We want to do bigger and better things. Always the goal is to win the Pac-12, but hopefully we can go to the national championship. Thats what were working for.Rectors decision to return to school this year is a reason why the Cardinal could be in position to do just that despite entering camp with uncertainty about whether Keller Chryst or Ryan Burns ends up as the teams replacement for Kevin Hogan as starting quarterback.With Heisman Trophy runner-up Christian McCaffrey back for a third season and game-breaking back Bryce Love poised to take on a bigger role in his second season, Rectors speed on the outside gives Stanford the potential for a diverse offense that will be extremely difficult to defend.Its really exciting, coach David Shaw said. Now we have three guys who run sub 4.4, fast and explosive, have game experience. They all have established roles but also have versatility where we can do more with them.The one question on offense for the Cardinal is whether Chryst or Burns will step up and seize the quarterback role that Andrew Luck and Kevin Hogan excelled at so often the past seven years.ddddddddddddRector said hes confident that either quarterback can do the job, especially with all the playmaking options Stanford has to relieve pressure on a first-year starter -- especially when all three burners take the field at the same time.I think that will be scary for opposing defenses, Rector said. All three fast guys, all three can do something with the ball in their hands. It will be interesting to watch how defenses line up against that. I think were going to be something to watch.Rector has become more than just a fast guy on the outside in his three seasons at Stanford. He had 34 catches for 559 yards and seven touchdowns last season when he helped the Cardinal finish third in the nation for their highest final ranking since being No. 2 in 1940.He has added better route running, more consistent hands and elusiveness after the catch to the straight ahead speed that has made him so dangerous.Its been a progression throughout my career to show more versatility that Im not just a deep guy, Rector said. I can do any route in the book. Now that I have that under my belt it was more about coming back and working in the details and make myself a better player.But its his speed that will still have the biggest impact on Stanfords offense with the way it puts fear in opposing defenses.Hes been making plays since he got here, fellow receiver Francis Owusu said. Its very exciting to have him back. Hes such a deep threat. He helps make sure those DBs are playing back and that helps everyone. Having speed at receiver is always a good thing.
