of the year having won her two previous tournaments: Shenzhen and the Australian Open. Regardless of her early defeat in Doha, Li will move up to a career-best No. 2 in the WTA rankings on Monday, overtaking Victoria Azarenka, who was not defending her Doha title because of a foot injury. Second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland was leading 6-4, 0-1 when her opponent, qualifier Mirjana Lucic-Baroni of Croatia, retired with a lower back injury. Third-seeded Petra Kvitova was stretched to three sets before closing the door 7-6 (2), 5-7, 6-2 on fellow Czech Lucie Safarova. The left-handed Kvitova served 15 aces and took advantage of four of five break-point opportunities in the two-hour, 25-minute match. "I served well, yes," said Kvitova, the 2011 Wimbledon champion. "I had one window when I did some double-faults, unfortunately. But with the aces Im really glad." In Fridays quarterfinals, Cetkovska plays Angelique Kerber, Radwanska takes on Yanina Wickmayer, Kvitova faces fifth-seeded Jelena Jankovic, and fourth-seeded Sara Errani faces seventh-seeded Simona Halep. Li, playing her first tournament since winning the Australian Open, had a 3-1 lead in the third set, but the 133rd-ranked Cetkovska refused to fold. "Its an amazing victory," Cetkovska said. "Its a little bit difficult to describe exactly what I feel at the moment. "Even though I was 3-1 down in the third set I could manage to make it and get through." Despite breaking Cetkovskas serve on six of 12 opportunities, and surrendering only three of her own service games in 11 break points faced, Li played tentative tennis throughout the two-hour, 46-minute match. "It was cold. Its windy," said Li, noting the inhospitable weather greeting tennis players in Doha this week. "The court is a little slower. When I think I can hit a winner the opponent always gets the ball back, so I always have to be ready for the next shot." This marks the eighth time Cetkovska has beaten a top-10 player. Its only the second time shes beaten a top-three ranked player -- she upset the then third-ranked Agnieszka Radwanska at the 2011 Rome tournament. Errani defeated Monica Niculescu of Romania 2-6, 7-5, 6-1, Jankovic defeated wild card Alisa Kleybanova of Russia 6-1, 6-2, and Kerber sent Klara Zakopalova of Czech Republic packing 6-2, 6-3.

"I told him at shootaround that hes human," Cheeks said. "Hes entitled to have a bad game. Its important to see how you bounce back." Drummond had 13 points and 17 rebounds, and the Pistons snapped a four-game losing streak with a 103-87 win over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night. Drummond bounced back from a poor outing at Dallas over the weekend, and Detroit led comfortably throughout the second half. Detroit has struggled to close out games at home this season, but this time the Pistons turned a double-digit lead into a rout. "We needed it a lot. Were losing, a lot of bad things are around in the air -- a lot of negative energy," Detroit guard Will Bynum said. "Just happy to get a win."

Drummond, Smith and Greg Monroe went a combined 17 for 30 from the field. Monroe finished with eight points and 11 rebounds. "Sometimes it is just as simple as finding someone ... and boxing them out," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. "You need to do that on 10 defensive possessions out of 10, not six out of 10 or nine out of 10, and we werent even close to that, especially in the first half. When a shot goes up, find someone and get a body on them." Drummond had only four points against Dallas, and he had a scary start in this one. He stayed down for a bit holding his left leg with 6:34 left in the first quarter -- after his shoe came off during a scramble near the basket. Drummondd was able to walk off the court, and he was back in the game almost immediately. Cheap China Jerseys Authentic. His putback gave Detroit a 12-11 lead.
