Dang it... Madison Keys lost tho Kerber in the finals of

Kerber rallies past Madison Keys to win Family Circle Cup

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Angelique Kerber didn't really like playing on clay. That's changed in a big way Sunday when the fifth-seeded German rallied past American Madison Keys to win the Family Circle Cup.

The 27-year-old Kerber trailed 4-1 in the final set, yet took six of the last seven games to pull out a 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 victory for her fourth career WTA title and first on the slow, gunky coating power players love to hate.

"You know, it was never my favorite surface," Kerber said. "But it's changed in the last year. I knew that I can play also on clay and it's good also for my (overall) game because I'm playing defensive and being aggressive."

Kerber showed both those qualities against the power-hitting Keys, who came into the final without dropping a service game. Kerber broke Keys in the first game and five times overall, relentlessly sending 120 mph serves and sizzling groundstrokes back that had gone for winners earlier in the week.

Still, it was a frustrated Kerber in the third set who needed a good talking to from coach Torben Beltz to refocus and re-strategize. He told Kerber to up her aggressiveness and take the game to Keys, something that happened early on but not in the middle part of the match.


Scott Walker appoints Act 10 defender Michael Screnock as Sauk County Circuit Court judge Read more

Gov. Scott Walker announced Friday morning that he has named Michael Screnock to serve as the next Sauk County Circuit Judge.

Six people applied to replace retiring Judge Patrick Taggart. In February, Walker's Judicial Selection Advisory Committee reduced the field to Screnock, former Sauk County District Attorney Patricia Barrett and Baraboo City Attorney Mark Reitz, who later withdrew his application.

Screnock is a native of Sauk County who has worked for the cities of Reedsburg, Washburn and Ashland in various roles. In 2007, he joined the law firm of Michael Best & Friedrich.

During his time there, Screnock was part of a “select group” of attorneys that assisted the Wisconsin Department of Justice in defending the state's anti-collective bargaining bill from legal challenges.

In a judicial application obtained by the Baraboo News Republic through an open records request, Screnock wrote that he was “heavily involved in developing legal strategy, researching related legal principles, and drafting briefs” in the defense of the law. Ultimately, the Wisconsin Supreme Court and an appeals court upheld the law.

Screnock received his juris doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin and a Masters of Business Administration from Eastern College in Pennsylvania. Screnock lives with his family in Marshall, but plans to move back to Sauk County.
