2009 UAAP Men's Basketball Final Four CompleteAfter the Ateneo De Manila University Blue Eagles win over the Far Eastern University Tamaraws last night 74 - 73, the Final Four of the 2009 UAAP Men's Senior Basketball competition is now complete and the semifinal pairings cast.

The Ateneo Blue Eagles will face the fading UST Growling Tigers and appears to easily march into the finals. Unless, coach Pido can pull a major ace up his sleeves, his wards would stand no chance against the defending champs.

The other semifinal match will pit the FEU tamaraws and the surging UE Red Warriors. The Warriors was able to avenged their first round defeat against the Tamaraws in a convincing fashion. The Tams should be wary of an upset and must take care of the Warriors right in the first game. Otherwise, a do-or-die second game will only increase the Warriors confidence.

I am expecting an ATENEO - FEU final and wishing the Tamaraws to win.


Comebacking mom Kim Clijster continues her amazing run at the 2009 US Open Womens Single Tennis Championships as she defeated defending champ Serena Williams in a terrific match with the most bizaare ending 6-4 7-5 to advance to the Women's Final.

Clijsters played a superb game winning the first set 6 - 4.

On the second set, Clijster, still up at 4 - 3, had a double breakpoint against the serving Williams. However, Williams came up with two big aces to level to deuce and added another to erase another breakpoint and level the match.

With Clijster up 6 - 5, Serena was called for a foot fault on serve. She got mad on the line umpire that called it. The chair umpire called the line umpire. After which, a point penalty was given to Serena which led to her losing the game and the match at 7 - 5.

Later, Caroline Wozniacki advance to the final after defeating fellow 19 year old Wickmayer.

Obviously, the sentimental favorite to win is Kim Clijster who won the event in 2005.
