SINGAPORE - Simona Halep has two entries in her off-season calendar: party with friends, and pump some iron. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Jersey .The Romanian was comprehensively beaten 6-3, 6-0 by Serena Williams in Sundays championship match at the WTA Finals and left Singapore with mixed feelings: disappointment at the loss yet satisfaction with a season which elevated her firmly into the elite of the womens game.In May last year, Halep was ranked No. 67 and the former top-ranked junior was struggling to transition into the power game at the highest level. Now she is ranked No. 4, having completed a week in which she comprehensively beat Williams in the group stage Eugenie Bouchard and Agnieszka Radwanska, losing just 11 games in the process.She may have played well below her best Sunday, but the party with friends and family back in Romania is still planned.Yeah, I will do, Halep said. I dont forget that I beat Serena this week.It wasnt my best day, but Im still happy and Im still enjoying this moment because its a good moment for me. Im still young. So I continue my way, my hard work every day to go to be a champion one day. But we will see if it will happen.The contrast between the game style of Halep and Williams was stark in the final. Halep likes to take her ground strokes early, using cross-court angles to keep her opponents running and off balance, but she had no opportunity to do that against Williams. Her American opponent used punishing ground strokes, mixed in with a lot of play at the net, to keep Halep on the back foot.The power deficit against the likes of Williams, Maria Sharapova and Petra Kvitova is the main area Halep needs to address to challenge for Grand Slam titles.Maybe to work more in the gym to be stronger, to have more power, was Haleps response when asked for her off-season priorities.I improved a lot this year, so Im happy with my game. Still, I have to work more on the shots, on the serve and the return also, because the return is very important to me.Halep made the French Open final as well as Sundays title decider, but was uncertain if the next step was going to come quickly.My dream is to win a Grand Slam, but I dont know if I can do next year, Halep said. I want to improve more in my game and then we will see what is going to happen. I want to remain in top 10 next year. Trent Alexander-Arnold Jersey . He learned about pressure and expectations at the 2010 Games in his hometown of Vancouver. His next mission is to build on that experience at his next Olympic appearance in Sochi, where he plans to ride the momentum from the teams strong start to the season. Lucas Leiva Jersey . Williams withdrawal came less than 24 hours after losing in the final Auckland WTA tournament final. "I dont believe she has an injury," Hobart tournament director Mark Handley said. . "Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami. DENVER -- Miguel Montero predicted this kind of night for himself, an evening he would long remember. He told Henry Blanco as they hung around the batting cage before the game that he was due to have "one of those crazy days when you get 6 or 7 RBIs. ... So, I guess I called it." Certainly did. Montero drove in a career-high six runs, Paul Goldschmidt hit a go-ahead, three-run double in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the Colorado Rockies to their sixth straight loss, 16-8 on Wednesday night. The Rockies led 8-5 when the Diamondbacks scored six times in the eighth to reclaim the lead. They were hardly done, adding five more in the ninth to turn a close game into a runaway. The Diamondbacks tied a season high with 21 hits. The top five hitters in the lineup had three hits each and combined for 14 RBIs. Montero led the way as he drove in two runs on sacrifice flies, had a run-scoring single and hit a three-run homer in the ninth. "It was awesome," Montero said. Brad Ziegler (2-1) got two outs in the seventh to earn the win. Rex Brothers (2-4) took the loss after the big eighth. The Rockies starter Jordan Lyles broke his left hand in the first inning when he tried to tag out Martin Prado at home after a wild pitch. Lyles used two hands to catch the ball when it was thrown back to him then left after the fourth. "I knew something was wrong, because Ive never felt that feeling before," said Lyles, who was wearing a bandage on his hand. "I didnt want to come out in the first, make the bullpen go nine. Thankfully, we got four innings." Asked how long Lyles might be out, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, "for a little bit." Arizona surrendered four runs in the seventh to fall behind, but responded right away as Brothers imploded. The reliever gave up four straight singles, including a run-scoring liner by Chris Owings, and then then walked Gerardo Parra with the bases loaded to bring in another run. Nick Masset was summoned from the bullpen and promptly gave up Goldschmidts double down the line. "Youre just looking for something you can hit hard," Goldschmidt explained. Adam Bogdan Jersey. "The pitch ran a little bit inside but I think it was right on the corner and I was able to hit it." Didi Gregorius led off the game with a solo homer as Arizona built an early 4-0 lead. The Rockies came back with four runs in the fifth and four more in the seventh. D.J. LeMahieus two-out infield single in the seventh tied the game and a throwing error by Owings at shortstop allowed the Rockies to take the lead. Pinch-hitter Drew Stubbs also added a two-run single. Brothers faced five batters without getting an out. He allowed five runs. "Im not going to talk about Rexs situation right now, as far as his future," Weiss said. "Just got to keep working through it, like all of us do. Its up to us to turn this thing around, each guy. Nobody is going to do it for us." Arizona starter Josh Collmenter, coming off a complete-game win, was cruising until the fifth when the Rockies broke out of their offensive funk. Troy Tulowitzki had a two-run double and Michael Cuddyer followed with a two-run single. Tulowitzki slid just past Monteros tag for the tying run. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson challenged the play but after a quick review, the call was upheld. Tulowitzki leads the majors in batting (.354) and All-Star votes (1,419,718). "With the streak weve been on, to have Lyles break his hand, its unfortunate," Tulowitzki said. "Weve had a lot of hand injuries." Before the game, Rockies All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed left index finger. Its another big bat out of the lineup as third baseman Nolan Arenado (fractured finger) went on the DL on May 24. NOTES: The Diamondbacks said on their Twitter account Wednesday that INF Cliff Pennington underwent surgery to fix a partially torn ligament in his left thumb. ... Arizona will send RHP Bronson Arroyo (4-4) to the mound in the series finale Thursday, while the Rockies counter with RHP Juan Nicasio (5-3). ... Prized prospect RHP Eddie Butler will make his major league debut for Colorado on Friday.
