Phoenix1 became PhoenixWon on Sunday as the then-winless underdog finally took home its first match win of the season over fellow rookies Apex Gaming. Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit . After going through the first half of the season without a victory and dropping a series to every other team in the league, P1s victory over Apex allows the team to look forward to next weeks games instead of dreading them. At 1-9 in the standings, Phoenix1 currently sit tied with Echo Fox in ninth place, and are only three games back of Counter Logic Gaming and Team Envy for the sixth and final spot in the postseason.It feels really good because weve been working so hard these last few weeks, said Phoenix1s support Austin Gate Yu following the squads inaugural match win. I actually thought we could do even better. I thought we could do well against [Team SoloMid], but I think theyre just a really cohesive team so Im pretty happy with the one win this week.Before TSMs ace mid laner S?ren Bjergsen Bjerg took over in the first game on Saturday versus P1, the forlorn rookies were putting up a fight against the undefeated league leaders. But, as it has been for the majority of the season, P1s inexperience playing together and lack of synergy led to them getting picked apart by a better, more well-rounded team with a game changing player like Bjergsen.Most of us dont really take whatever people say online to heart, said Gate, elaborating on how the team was able to put up with the constant backlash throughout the weeks as a winless rookie club. At the end of the day, we all think were really good players, so theres not much to worry about when it comes to third-party [criticism]. Also, when youre the underdog, it feels like there is less pressure. It feels like its much easier to play the game, too. There is no real need to care about what other teams or what other people on the internet think of you.Although the team had failed to live up to its symbol of a phoenix rising from the ashes before Sundays conquest, all chatter surrounding the fledgling organization as a whole has been positive. Last split, Gate played on Team Impulse, a team that did better than expected on paper and even survived relegations, but was barred from the summer split when it came out the organization didnt keep up with payment to the players on the roster.Last split on Team Impulse, we had little to no support staff, he continued. We literally had to call up our friends and ask them if they could help us with our team because we were having some struggles. With Phoenix1, its completely the opposite. We dont even have to ask. They just think about it first. And we, just as players, want to repay them and show the org that theyre doing good for us with some wins.From the shambles of living with Impulse in the spring, Gate and the rest of Phoenix1 currently live in one of the nicer team houses of any team in the league. The property has a main house and a guest house equipped with a gigantic pool and other amenities youd expect from a luxurious space in Los Angeles. Id say its the best team house Ive been in so far, said Gate.I actually think -- people have said it over and over -- North America is really competitive this split, he said. Were just going to have to take it week by week, and see if we can pull out more wins and go to the [NA LCS] Finals in Canada. Because four of us are from there, so wed really like to make it there.Always looking on the positive side of things instead of getting sandbagged by negativity, Gate and the rest of P1 have continually done after game interviews with press and hung around to talk to fans outside the arena even during the 0-9 stretch of games. He said it was a blessing after last seasons tumultuous split with Impulse to find an upstanding and supportive organization like Phoenix1.First things first, I cant really say in words how much I appreciate it, he said to all the fans of P1 whove been supporting the squad over the past month. You guys are masochists to like us. Weve been struggling. Its hard to root for a team thats struggling, so for you guys whove rooted for us since the very beginning, I cant thank you enough. And then for all the people that supported me personally, I think youre probably the reason why I do esports, so thanks a lot. Wholesale Nike Vapormax .

MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. BEIJING -- Andy Murray won the China Open in Beijing on Sunday, defeating Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 7-6 (2), in a hard-fought match that featured plenty of acrobatics from both players.Playing in his ninth final of the season, the top-seeded Scot broke Dimitrov in the first game of the first set and again in the fifth game of the second. Murray looked to have the match in the bag serving at 5-4, but the Bulgarian finally broke his serve, then held his own to force the tiebreaker.The finals victory was Murrays first in three attempts at the China Open, having reached the quarterfinals on his debut and the semifinals in 2014.Agnieszka Radwanska had an easier time of it in the womens final, handily defeating Johanna Konta 6-4, 6-2.The third-seeded Pole added to her 2011 victory in the Beijing tournament, notching up her 20th career title and third of 2016. She took the victory without dropping a set throughout the tournament.Radwanska broke Konta in the third game but then was broken back in the eighth before holding her service to take the first set.She established her dominancce in the second set, breaking Konta twice before serving out for the win with an ace. Nike Air Vapormax 2018. That was a really special week for me, Radwanska said in post-match comments. I really played great tennis, especially against top players.Radwanska has now won both of the pairs encounters. She sealed the victory with just six unforced errors to Kontas 29.The 11th-seeded Konta was making her first Beijing appearance and had already assured herself of a place in the next WTA top-10 rankings -- the first British woman to do so since Jo Durie in 1984.I guess its pretty cool. Im very pleased with my progress over the last few years, and hopefully, yes, still many more places to climb, said Konta, who was making her first appearance in Beijing. But as of now Im really enjoying my journey, Im really enjoying working hard and really working towards playing matches like these against players like Agnieszka, so hopefully Ill have many more in the future.
