Beijing, China - Fourth seed Maria Sharapova captured the China Open by beating No. 3 seed Petra Kvitova, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 Sunday. Sharapova, the reigning French Open champion, earned her fourth title of the year and will rise two spots to No. 2 in the world come Monday. Thats only behind Serena Williams. The last championship from the Russian came at Roland Garros this year. With the latest victory, Sharapova will surpass Simona Halep and Kvitova in the rankings. Sharapova moved to the final without dropping a set, but faltered in the second set against Kvitova on Sunday. Kvitova, who reached the final at Wuhan last week, won the second set in 43 minutes by pushing 15 winners. In the third, though, Kvitova double-faulted four times and Sharapova finished the encounter by drilling a huge serve that the Czech backhanded into the net. The victory netted Sharapova $918,000. It was a bit of an up-and-down match Id say - maybe not the best out of the tournament, Sharapova said. But its never easy playing against Petra. You dont always quite get a good rhythm. She goes for a lot of shots, very deep, and shes a very good, confident player. Sharapova, who also won championships at Stuttgart and Madrid, moved to 6-2 lifetime against Kvitova. That includes five straight wins. The two met once earlier this year, with Sharapova capturing a 7-5, 6-1 win in the Miami quarterfinals. Kvitova had won the lone previous meeting in a final, claiming a 6-3, 6-4 triumph at Wimbledon in 2011 for her first career Grand Slam crown. I was tired, but it was a final, and every time Im playing a final, Im giving everything I have inside, Kvitova said. What I did today was a great battle. It was small things and small points that make the difference in the end. I had some chances, but Maria just didnt let them go.

The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period.PHILADELPHIA - Keith Allen, a Hall of Fame executive credited with building the Philadelphia Flyers into a hockey power during the 1970s, died Tuesday. He was 90. The Saskatoon native appeared as a player in just 28 NHL games with the Detroit Red Wings from 1953-55. But it was when he traded in his skates for a suit that Allen made his mark. Allen joined the Flyers in 1966 and became the franchises first head coach during its debut season in 1967 when Philadelphia won the West Division title. He became general manager of the team in 1969 and held the job until 1983. During his tenure the Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1973-74 and 1974-75 and reached the Stanley Cup final four times. Allens success in turning the Flyers into the "Broad Street Bullies" was built by drafting and acquiring players such as Hall of Famer Bill Barber, Rick MacLeish, Bob Kelly, Bob Clement, Bernie Parent, Barry Ashbee, Reggie Leach, Terry Crisp and Andre Dupont. "Keith was responsible for the Flyers winning the Stanley Cup," said Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke in a statement. "He was in charge of the draft, in charge of the trades, in charge of getting Bernie back — alll the things necessary for us to win the (Cup).dddddddddddd. He put the pieces in place and hired the coach. He, more than anybody was responsible for us winning the Cups." Allen was in charge when Philadelphia set a league record 35-game unbeaten streak en route to the Stanley Cup final during the 1979-80 season. Prior to his departure, he drafted players such as Brian Propp, Rick Tocchet and Ron Hextall who would lead the team to two more championship appearances in the 80s. He also gave the late Fred Shero the head coaching job with the Flyers in 1971, and hired Pat Quinn to his first NHL coaching job in 1978-79. Allen was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder in 1992. "Keith Allen always found a way to bring exceptional talent to Broad Street and weave it into the fabric of a team that would succeed and endure at the highest level, because in Philadelphia, for his Flyers and their fans, no other level was acceptable," said commissioner Gary Bettman in a statement. "The National Hockey League sends heartfelt condolences to Keiths family, to his friends and to the Flyers organization, which has lost one of its patriarchs." ' ' '
