Laura Robson loses to Su-Wei Hsieh in Guangzhou Open final

Chinese Taipei's Hsieh took the first set but the British number one saved five championship points at 5-3 down in the second and battled to win it 7-5.
Robson continued to build momentum into the third set, taking a 3-0 lead.But Hsieh won five successive games and sealed victory in two hours 48 minutes.
Sara Gomer was the last Briton to win a WTA singles title in 1988, while Jo Durie was the last to reach a final in 1990.However, teenager Robson, who made it as far as the fourth round of the US Open at the start of this month, will rise into the top 70 of the world rankings for the first time on Monday.
The first set began on even terms as Robson broke her opponent's serve in the third game then trailed 40-15 on her own serve in the fourth, and saved two break points before Hsieh prevailed.

Hsieh, who won her first title in Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, was using her drop shot to great effect and won the next three games and, though Robson took the eighth after a long battle, Hsieh held her nerve to take the first set 6-3.After some encouragement from coach Zeljko Krajan, Robson broke Hsieh in the second game of the second set to lead 2-0, but once again Hsieh won four successive games to go 4-2 up.It left the Taiwanese player only needing to hold serve to close out victory, and it looked like a straight-sets defeat was on the cards for Robson as, despite a spirited rally, she dropped the eighth game to trail 5-3.But despite the searing Chinese heat, Robson dug deep to save match point on those five occasions in the ninth game, eventually winning four games in a row to seal the second set in style.

And a first British WTA title for 24 years looked on the cards when London-based Robson won the first two games of the third set and saved three break points in the third game to take a 3-0 lead - having won seven games on the trot.But the pendulum began to swing towards Hsieh as she won the next five games, breaking Robson twice to claim a 5-3 advantage, and although Robson held serve in the ninth game, Hsieh powered to victory.Meanwhile, British number two Heather Watson reached the main draw of the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo with a 5-7 6-3 6-2 win over world number 62 Andrea Hlavackova of the Czech Republic in the final round of qualifying.In Seoul, top seed Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark beat Russia's Ekaterina Makarova 6-1 5-7 6-4 to reach the final of the Korea Open.Wozniacki will meet Estonia's Kaia Kanepi, who beat United States player Varvara Lepchenko 6-4 2-6 6-4 in the other semi.


Wall Street : Day 2 of the IPO Party Has Been Canceled

It had been a little more than a month since a company had dared to go public on a stateside exchange, but that dry spell ended with a bang when Trulia (TRLA) began trading on Thursday.Underwriters priced the IPO at $17 a share, and the market ate it up. Shares of the real estate website operator opened 30% higher on Thursday morning, closing out the day 41% higher at $24.Trulia has yet to turn a profit, making Thursday's big move more than a bit surprising. Sure, the dot-com is growing quickly. Revenue nearly doubled last year. However, the market is hungry enough for new offerings that it's willing to let Trulia's lack of positive earnings slide.

The IPO party was set to continue on Friday when Smith Electric Vehicles (SMTH) -- a maker of plug-in electric commercial trucks -- would test the market.
Except it's not going to happen. Late Thursday, Smith Electric canceled the IPO.It's not because Smith Electric isn't profitable at the moment. Actually, it's not profitable yet, but the investors who were clamoring for a piece of the potentially promising electric vehicle market didn't seem to mind.

"We received significant interest from potential investors," said Bryan Hansel, Smith's chief executive officer. "However, we were unable to complete a transaction at a valuation or size that would be in the best interests of our company and its existing shareholders."Smith Electric's client list is a who's who of consumer-facing companies that welcome the opportunity to replace their fleets of diesel-slurping vehicles with trucks powered by electricity. As long as the fleet operators have predictable daily routes of no more than 120 miles before returning to the depot, Smith Electric's trucks are surprisingly easy to sell.

SEC to scrutinise private equity

The US Securities and Exchange Commission is seeking to determine whether some private-equity firms are taking more profits from investments than they should under agreements with fund clients, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.
The SEC, pursuing a review of the industry begun after passage of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010, is examining how buyout funds ensure that payouts follow the sequence set out in partnership documents, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter isn’t public. Regulators are looking for deviations from the distribution process, or waterfall, which usually calls for clients to receive some gains on investments before the fund manager.
The SEC stepped up its scrutiny of the private-equity business following the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc, which accelerated a financial crisis that froze deal- making and forced firms to write down the value of their holdings. After Dodd-Frank authorized greater oversight of money managers, the agency initiated its broad review of practices at private-equity and hedge funds.
“More SEC scrutiny will force firms to add controls, increasing their costs in an already difficult operating environment of decreased profit margins,” said Tom Bell, a partner at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett in New York who oversees the firm’s private-funds practice. “We may see a few enforcement actions as a result, which would probably put the subject firms effectively out of business.”

Expense Allocations

The SEC has implemented examinations to police the industry. In connection with regular inspections, the SEC is also looking into how buyout firms allocate expenses among investors, including those incurred for deals that are pursued but not completed.
John Nester, a spokesman for the SEC in Washington, declined to comment. Ken Spain, a spokesman for the Private Equity Growth Capital Counsel, said the SEC hadn’t contacted the Washington-based trade group about it inquiries.
“As a fiduciary, it is important that private-equity advisers allocate their fees and expenses fairly,” Carlo V. di Florio, director of the SEC’s office of compliance inspections and examinations, said at a conference in New York in May. “A firm should clearly disclose to clients the fees that it is earning in connection with managing investments as well as expense allocations between a firm and its client fund.”
Private-equity firms buy companies using a combination of investor capital and debt, with the goal of selling them or taking them public later for a profit. They charge annual management fees of 1.5 per cent to 2 per cent of committed funds and keep 15 per cent to 20 per cent of profit from investments, known as carried interest.

Fee Conversion

When a buyout fund exits a holding, investors often get their investment back first, plus a certain percentage of the profits, known as the hurdle. Once the hurdle has been paid, the fund manager can begin collecting carried interest.
Investment agreements aren’t uniform among funds. In some cases a firm may waive upfront management fees and instead take an equivalent payout from investment profits. Under such arrangements, the manager may pay itself before returning the investors’ original contribution.
The SEC is concerned that firms lack internal controls to track payments and ensure that the agreed waterfall plan is followed, the people said. One issue is whether the firms are taking more of the deal profits than they are entitled to, said another person with knowledge of the matter.
While buyout companies have traditionally managed funds that pool capital from multiple investors such as pensions, endowments and wealthy individuals, large investors have increasingly sought their own separately managed accounts with better terms than the others.
‘Broken Deals’

The SEC has asked some firms for information about how so- called broken-deal expenses are allocated, one of the people said. If a manager evaluates the same investment opportunity for a pooled fund and a separately managed account, regulators are concerned that the manager may protect the favoured large investor from due diligence costs if the deal falls through, shifting the burden to the smaller investors in the co-mingled fund.Regulators are also examining whether some managers are giving lawyers and bankers business related to their funds in exchange for fee discounts for the management company, according to the people.

‘Inherent Conflicts’

“Some people at the agency believe that there are more inherent conflicts with private-equity funds than there are with hedge funds,” said Barry Barbash, a partner and head of the asset-management group at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP in Washington and a former director of the SEC’s investment- management division. “The agency’s focus on the private-equity industry is leading to a greater degree of wariness, pushing firms to think twice about their practices.”
The private-equity industry has been under the spotlight as a result of Mitt Romney’s campaign for US President. Romney co-founded Bain Capital LLC in 1984, and even after retiring from the Boston-based buyout firm in 1999, he still receives payouts from Bain funds as part of an exit package. Carried interest is taxed at the 15 per cent rate for capital gains, rather than the 35 per cent top rate that applies to regular income.While the debate over Romney’s ties to private equity has centred mainly on taxes, it has also highlighted the general lack of transparency in an industry based on private deals involving wealthy investors.
The SEC adopted a rule last year that required private- equity companies and hedge funds with more than $150 million in assets under management to register with the agency. Of the 50 largest private-equity funds in the world, 37 are now registered with the SEC, 18 of which had not been registered before.

Indian stocks gain on tax rule

Indian stocks gained the most in Asia after the government changed tax rules on overseas loans, extending policy reforms announced last week, and after the third-biggest party pledged support to the government.

The BSE India Sensitive Index, or Sensex, rose 2.1 per cent to 18,738.03 at 3.26pm in Mumbai, headed for the highest close since July 25, 2011. Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd., the biggest power-equipment maker, surged the most since May 2009. ICICI Bank Ltd., Larsen & Toubro Ltd., the largest engineering company, and Tata Steel Ltd. soared more than 4 per cent each.

India cut the withholding tax on overseas borrowings by companies, stepping up a policy revamp to revive investments, and announced plans to add mutual funds to a scheme aimed at luring individual investors to stocks. The measures come a week after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh ended a 14-month freeze on diesel prices and opened retailing and aviation to foreigners.

“It’s good news that the government has survived but the more important thing is that there has been no rollback in the reforms announced,” Sam Mahtani, who oversees about $5 billion (Dh18.37 billion) as director of emerging markets at F&C Asset Management, said by phone from London. “The market can easily rise by more than 20 per cent if the government pushes forward with reforms.”

Samajwadi Party, which rules India’s biggest state, said on Friday it will support Singh’s alliance after the government fell short of a majority, Times Now channel reported, citing party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. Trinamool Congress, the biggest ally in the coalition, withdrew support on Tuesday.Witholding tax.A tax on interest earned by foreigners in bonds issued abroad by local companies, and on interest payments for such debts, was lowered to 5 per cent from 20 per cent, the finance ministry said in a statement on Friday. The reduction is valid for three years, effective July 1, the ministry said.India’s rupee surged to 53.345 per dollar, the strongest level since May 10, after the announcement. The currency traded at 53.42 at 3.14pm. It has gained 1.7 per cent this week.

The Sensex climbed to a 14-month high on Monday after Singh unveiled the reforms last week, the biggest policy push of his previously gridlocked second term. The measures drove foreign funds to buy a net $951 million of local shares in the two trading days to Monday, the most in almost nine months, according to the regulator. Offshore funds have plowed a net $14 billion into Indian equities this year, the most among 10 Asian markets tracked by Bloomberg, which excludes China.

The Sensex, up 22 per cent this year, trades at 14.9 times estimated earnings, compared with the MSCI Emerging Markets Index’s 11.3 times. The Indian gauge’s valuation is still below its high for the year of 16.2 times reached in February, data compiled by Bloomberg show.“The valuation is not expensive,” F&C’s Mahtani said. “It’s about 12 forward-year PE, which is toward the lower end of the five-year band. It really depends on how much they can push reforms forward.”

The S&P CNX Nifty Index surged 1.6 per cent to 5,642.45. Its September futures traded at 5,657.40. The BSE-200 Index increased 1.5 per cent to 2,270.63. The National Stock Exchange of India Ltd. and the BSE Ltd. traded 980 million shares on Thursday, 11 per cent more than the 12-month daily average.

Bharat Heavy jumped 7.2 per cent to Rs231.6, the most since May 19, 2009. Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. rose 3.3 per cent to Rs810.6.ICICI Bank soared 4.4 per cent to Rs1,067.85. Larsen & Toubro added 4.3 per cent to Rs1,586.5. Tata Steel rallied 5 per cent to Rs415.75.


Lady Gaga looked positively Gaga-gantuan at her concert Monday in Amsterdam.

The 26-year-old diva barely squeezed into an ill-fitting leather one piece during the show that revealed a little too much of her backside for the “Paparazzi” cameras.Compounding the questionable outfit choice for a performer who’s considered a fashion pioneer - fishnet stockings that didn’t quite roll all the way up her exposed cheeks.

Maybe it’s a case of the stoner munchies.Gaga went native during the Amsterdam show, taking a few puffs from what appeared to be a marijuana joint while performing on stage.In a video captured by a concertgoer, the “Just Dance” singer is handed a wrapped cigarette from someone in the Dutch audience.

“Holland, is it real? Don't tease me,” says Gaga, pulling open the wrapper. “Oh, it's real.”After lighting it up and taking a few long puffs, Gaga throws the lit joint to another fan in the crowd at the Ziggo Dome.Amsterdam, where pot smoking has been legalized, seems the perfect fit for Gaga, an admitted fan of the "medical" drug.

"'I am a little bit part of the green club," she told the hosts of "The View" last year.

During her Amsterdam concert, Gaga used the opportunity to extoll the virtues of pot. She even joked that she would lobby President Obama to legalized marijuana worldwide, according to London's The Sun.

"I want you to know it has totally changed my life and I've really cut down on drinking," she told her Dutch Little Monsters. "It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music."

Kim Kardashian Freezes Her Eggs To Ensure She Will Have Children

Kim Kardashian isn’t even officially divorced yet, but that did not stop the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star from ensuring that she would have children one day. Yep, it looks like the world will have to endure more Kardashians, as Kim has frozen her eggs for the future. Oh no, say it isn’t so…

Just what the world needs is more Kardashians! On last night’s finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian made sure that she will have children one day – by freezing her eggs! “I’m glad I’m freezing my eggs. I want to be prepared when the time is right,” the reality star said, as she awaits her divorce from Kris Humphries.

Kim Kardashian has always wanted a family, but stated that she didn’t: “take the time to find someone.” We assume she means the “right” someone, and after two failed marriages, could Kanye West be the one? Kim recently made an appearance on the The View, where she dished about Kanye, and she is certain that it’s for the long haul. Look out world, it sounds like we will be seeing some Kardashian-West babies in the future.

Meanwhile, Kim’s sister, Khloe Kardashian Odom shared her fertility struggles, as she revealed: “Statistically if you have been trying for a year, and nothing happened, you need to take some other steps. I don’t think my family realizes how hard it is for me to talk about this.”

Somehow, we can’t but wonder if Kris Jenner will find a way to make money off of Kim’s eggs. After all, she always manages to find a way to make money off her kids.


Frustrating Liverpool, Nolan's nose for goal

It wasn't quite deja vu but there were certainly similarities. It will probably prove a simplification, if not wrong altogether, to say that one system and one approach is a guarantee of success against Liverpool but Sunderland's gameplan was rather reminiscent of West Bromwich Albion's four weeks earlier when they won 3-0. 

In both games, the home side played like the away team. Both played 4-2-3-1 - as Arsenal also did in their 2-0 win at Anfield - and both dropped deep, ceding both possession and territory and then counter-attacking. Liverpool had the ball for 66% of the game at the Stadium of Light. While Sunderland had spells of pressure, for the majority of the game they retreated to conserve energy and challenged Liverpool to break them down. 

Just as Albion's two holding midfielders, Youssouf Mulumbu and Claudio Yacob, stayed close to their two centre-backs, so did their Sunderland counterparts, Lee Cattermole and Jack Colback. The aim is to limit the space between the lines, to force Liverpool to operate in wider positions and further from the opposition's goal. 

That Sunderland's focus was on position, not pressing is evident from the statistics. Liverpool's anchor midfielder, Joe Allen, was allowed to be on the ball and completed 103 passes, more than Cattermole, Colback, James McClean and Seb Larsson managed between them. Their importance lay less in their efforts on the ball than off it and the absence of the injured Adam Johnson, a more attack-minded but less defensively-disciplined winger, may have helped Sunderland's shape as Larsson moved to the right and they stationed two banks of four in front of Simon Mignolet's goal. 

As in the Albion game, being organised wasn't quite the same as keeping Liverpool quiet. The visitors had 23 efforts on goal and six before Sunderland's first - and only - attempt on target. But, in another common denominator, they did not score the opening goal of the game, which would have drawn the home side out. 

In both games, too, Luis Suarez has had a series of shots: eight at the Hawthorns and six at Sunderland, one bringing his second goal of the season, but only three of those 14 have been on target. 

Liverpool were the superior side at 0-0 in both games, but then trailed 1-0. As with the majority of goals they conceded last season, individual errors, rather than tactical failings, were the cause. The immediate issue was poor defending by Martin Skrtel, allowing Steven Fletcher to get beyond him, but the build-up was also notable for mistakes. As Craig Gardner, Sunderland's right-back, came forward, Liverpool had two players in reasonable positions: left-back Glen Johnson and, tracking back from as the left of the front three, Suarez. The problem was that both made flimsy challenges, allowing Gardner to go past them and cross. 

That Suarez was on the flank was notable. Rodgers tweaked his tactics in two ways: Steven Gerrard, who had been the most advanced of the three central midfielders, operated further back and closer to Allen and Jonjo Shelvey, and the front three alternated more often. At various points four players - Suarez, Raheem Sterling, Fabio Borini and the substitute Stewart Downing - were the left winger with the Uruguayan taking the longest turn there. Sterling, who had spent virtually all of his embryonic career on the left, was on the right for much of the match. It gave Liverpool a different threat: whereas Borini, as more of a striker, looks infield when on the right, Sterling was prepared to go outside his full-back, Danny Rose, and that led to Suarez's goal. 

The statistical anomaly that Liverpool have not led, let alone won, against a team with a back four (Manchester City played 3-4-1-1 at Anfield) suggests more teams may play 4-4-1-1 or 4-2-3-1 against them and the reality that they have not been ahead in those matches means Albion, Arsenal and Sunderland have never had to chase the game. One advantage of Rodgers' philosophy for opponents is that they can predict his formation and set up accordingly. Perhaps a blueprint has been established by West Brom and now Sunderland. 

Jacoby Ford officially done for season

Jacoby Ford's season has come to an end, cornerback Ron Bartell is on hiatus and cornerback Coye Francies and long snapper Nick Guess have had theirs resuscitated by being signed to the Raiders roster from the team's practice squad.with Ford undergoing season-ending Lisfranc surgery on his left foot Tuesday and Bartell suffering a broken left shoulder blade in Oakland's opener the night before, as well as Pro Bowler long snapper Jon Condo still trying to come back from a concussion suffered against San Diego, the Raiders needed reinforcements. So none of the four moves are all that surprising.

Ryan Mathews Likely to Miss Titans Game

It appears as if the San Diego Chargers will be without running back Ryan Mathews for another week.Michael Gehlken of the Union-Tribune San Diego, who covers the team on a daily basis, tweeted Friday that he doesn't believe Mathews will suit up Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.Mathews is on his way back from a broken clavicle that was suffered in the Chargers' preseason opener back in early August. He's only been through a few practices, so he's not likely anywhere ready be step in and be effective.

Curtis Brinkley and Ronnie Brown shouldered the load last week in the win over the Oakland Raiders, but they were extremely ineffective. The pair combined for just 17 yards on 16 carries. Yes, 17 yards on 15 carries. Neither back did anything to deserve more playing time than the other. So you can expect it to be another mixed bag against the Titans.But the Chargers will likely only have to be without Mathews for one more week, though. Gehlken believes that Mathews will be ready by Week 3, which is great news for Norv Turner's offense. If San Diego can't run the ball with any effectiveness, Philip Rivers is going to have a tough time with an extra defender dropped back while only rushing four.The only good news here is that Mathews is one week closer to a return. 

Pierre Garcon out for Washington Redskins

Pierre Garcon is unlikely to play for the Washington Redskins when they take on the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.Officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report, Garcon hurt his right foot during Week 1's victory over the New Orleans Saints an injury Redskins coach Mike Shanahan described as similar to turf toe. He has been limited in practice all week.

If Garcon doesn't play, first-year wide receiver Aldrick Robinson is expected to take his place. He had four catches for 52 yards last week after Garcon was hurt.Robinson was a sixth-round draft pick out of Southern Methodist University in 2011 who played on the Redskins' practice squad last season."He's got a lot more confidence in his hands," Shanahan said, according to The Washington Post. "Being here at the OTAs and summer camp, he is a lot more comfortable in the system. He made a couple of big plays in preseason where he has a lot of confidence. You can see that. He has a lot of speed to separate from defensive backs throughout the league. Especially when you take a look at the first game and the catches he made, he should have a lot of confidence.
