Sofia, Bulgaria (SportsNetwork.com) - Andrea Petkovic of Germany rallied past Italys Flavia Pennetta to capture the WTA Tournament of Champions title on Sunday. Petkovic stormed back after a disastrous first set to earn a 1-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory in the final. She earned her third title of 2014 and the fifth of her career. Im happy could gather enough energy and play well enough to win it in the end, said Petkovic, who also won previously this year in Charleston and Bad Gastein. She improved to 5-5 lifetime in finals. Pennetta won the first set in just 36 minutes, but Petkovic started her comeback with a break of serve in the second and held serve from there to even the match.

Pennetta fell to 10-14 all-time in finals, including 1-1 this year. She won the Indian Wells title back in March. Petkovic improved to 3-2 lifetime against Pennetta.

As the Winnipeg Blue Bombers opened their main training camp Sunday, Kuale is one of the newcomers brought in to bolster a sagging defence that ranked overall where the Bombers finished 2013, in the CFL cellar with a league high 585 points against.BERLIN - Christoph Kramers bizarre own goal gave Borussia Dortmund a 1-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach to end the sides five-game losing streak and lift it out of the Bundesligas relegation zone on Sunday.World Cup winner Kramer converted into his own net from the centre circle in the 58th minute when he inadvertently chipped an attempted back pass over his goalkeeper and could only watch helplessly as the ball bounced in.I thought the ball was going to bounce up, said Kramer, referring to the pass he received from teammate Tony Jantschke. It can happen. But how I played today, that shouldnt happen. The Dortmunders can thank me and I have to excuse myself to the Gladbachers.Dortmund midfielder Sebastian Kehl immediately consoled the 23-year-old, and he said afterward, I hope it doesnt harm him, because hes a good kicker. I wish him all the best for the next game.It was a deserved lead for the home side which had dominated without converting any chances.Marco Reus was a constant thorn for his former side and almost made it 2-0 three minutes after Kramers mishap when he struck the crossbar.Reus went agonizingly near the far post in the second minute, shortly before Yann Sommer pulled off a great save to push another Reus effort onto the post.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a goal ruled out for offside in the 19th, Lukasz Piszczek missed a good opportunity, Henrikh Mkhitaryan fired over with the goal at his mercy, and Sommer made another fine save to stop Aubameyangs free kick to keep it scoreless at the break.dddddddddddd.Moenchengladbach only threatened in a frenetic finale when Dortmund again missed numerous chances to secure the result.But the home side, which had 22 efforts to the visitors one, held on for a much-needed win to move above Werder Bremen on goal difference. Bremen occupies the relegation playoff spot.We totally deserved to win, said Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp, who also had words of consolation for Kramer.If that had to be the tin opener then Ill take it and tell the tale later. Christoph Kramer now has his own little place in our history.After its first defeat of the season Moenchengladbach is third, seven points behind Bayern Munich.Earlier, Kevin de Bruyne created both goals for Wolfsburg to beat Hamburger SV 2-0 and consolidate second.Ivica Olic opened the scoring in the 26th minute, deflecting de Bruynes wayward effort inside the left post from close range.Aaron Hunt made the game safe in the 64th, with a cool finish from de Bruynes pass — his ninth assist of the season, a Bundesliga high. The Belgian midfielder ran half the length of the pitch before picking out Hunt, who took his time before picking his spot.Wolfsburg were simply better than us, said Hamburg defender Dennis Diekmeier, whose side slipped back into the relegation zone. They deserved the win.American midfielder Julian Green, on loan at Hamburg from Munich, made a 79th-minute substitute appearance.Wolfsburg remained four points behind Bayern after its eighth consecutive win across all competitions.
