More Great News - From Singapore To Paris

Golf - Barclay Singapore Open

Angel CABRERA held of Vijay SINGH from Fiji and Australian Adam SCOTT to win the $4 million Singapore Open at Sentosa Golf Club by one stroke. CABRERA fired three birdies and two bogeys to finish with three–day total of 9 under 204

"I had to work my way around, it was tough, the winds were picking up and the greens are getting very hard," said Cabrera, who made a 25-foot birdie putt at No. 17.

"I'm feeling comfortable. I'm hitting the ball well. I've got a four-shot lead, so that's a bit of a cushion for tomorrow."

But the good news did not just stop there.

Tennis - 2007 PNB Paris Masters

David NALBANDIAN continues his late season surge by upsetting Rafael NADAL, 6-4 & 6-0 to win the Paris Masters final.

With his second Masters Series shield in the last two weeks, NALBANDIAN halted NADAL's mastery in Paris.

NALBANDIAN became the first player since Marat SAFIN in 2004 to win the Madrid and Paris Masters titles back-to-back.

Ranked sixth in the world following the 2005 season, NALBANDIAN had dropped to as low as 26th in the last week of July before his late-season surge.

NALBANDIAN pocketed $489,500 in improving to 31-18 on the season.

Despite the late charge, NALBANDIAN was unable to qualify for the year-ending Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai. He had competed in the event - limited to the top eight players in the world - the previous three years, winning it in 2005 by beating FEDERER.

NALBANDIAN can make the trip to China to serve as the standby for the year-ending event, which starts on November 12. He said he would make a decision about it on Monday.

Congratulations to both them
