KARUIZAWA, Japan -- Minjee Lee shot a 7-under 65 in her last amateur round and Su Oh had a 66 in Australias record comeback victory Saturday in the Womens World Amateur Team Championship. Seven strokes behind leader Canada entering the day, Australia took the lead through six holes and finished at 29-under 547 for a two-stroke victory. Shelly Shin had a 74 for Australia, with only the top two scores each day counting in the team total. "They never thought they were out of it, but they were close to possibly being out of it," Australian captain Matt Cutler said. "It was the fastest start you could ever see coming." Lee and Oh were 7 under on the first six holes to give Australia the lead. Lee had an eagle and two birdies during the run, and Oh had three birdies. "I wanted to make this something to remember," Lee said. "I wanted this to be a priceless experience for everyone." The 18-year-old Lee turned professional Monday and will play the Evian Championship next week in France. She was No. 1 in the world amateur ranking. Australias 72-hole total of 547 was a stroke off South Koreas 2010 record and the final-round 131 was the second-best in tournament history. The top teams finished on Karuizawa 72 Golf Easts Iriyama Course. The 18-year-old Lee, No. 1 in the world amateur ranking, shot a 64 on Friday on the Oshitate Course to give Australia a chance to win the Espirito Santo Trophy for the third time. The seven-shot comeback broke the tournament record of three set by Australia in 2002 in Malaysia. Australia also won the biennial event in 1978. "We talked last night that if you broke it down as an individual and you were three or four strokes down through 54 holes, you could give yourself a chance," Cutler said. "We were seven down, so thats how we approached it." Canada was second at 27 under, with 16-year-old Brooke Henderson winning the individual title at 19-under 269. Lee was second, three strokes back. "Australia had a great round today. I was really impressed," Henderson said. "They have very skilled players, including two in the top 10 in the world rankings, which is unbelievable. Its a little disappointing to finish second, but overall we had a really great week and played really well as a team." Henderson closed with a 68 to break the individual record of 274 set by Lydia Ko in 2012. Ranked second in the world, Henderson was the low amateur at the U.S. Womens Open and the U.S. Womens Amateur runner-up. Brittany Marchand added a 72 for Canada, and Augusta James had a 75. South Korea, the 2010 and 2012 winner, was third at 26 under, and Denmark was fourth at 20 under. The United States tied for fifth at 19 under. Allison Lee shot 68, U.S. Womens Amateur champion Kristen Gillman 71, and Emma Talley 74. "Alison was hitting the ball as well as she had any other day, maybe even better, but she just couldnt buy a putt," U.S. captain Martha Lang said. "Kristen was 3 under before she made three straight bogeys, but she hung in there. And today, unfortunately, Emma never got it going. Overall, we are pleased and disappointed at the same time." The 2016 tournament will be play in Cancun, Mexico. Ben Gedeon Jersey . Canada will host Japan in a World Group first-round match in 2015. It will be a rematch of their first-round clash last year when Japan defeated Canada 4-1 to reach the World Group quarter-finals for the first time in its history. Marcus Sherels Jersey . Fellow Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuain also had a brace for Napoli. And Samuel Etoo scored for his fourth different team. On a night of standout individual performances Wednesday, Schalke goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand had a game hell want to forget. The 26-year-old Regina native teamed up with Denny Morrison and Mathieu Giroux to win gold in 2010. Makowsky also was 13th in the 5,000 metres and 19th in the 1,500m in Vancouver. He also represented Canada at the 2014 Games in Sochi, helping the pursuit team finish fourth and finishing 28th in the 1,500. Michael Floyd Jersey . Cruz set the tone with a two-run homer in the first inning, and Baltimore scored eight times in the eighth to pull away for a 12-3 victory in Game 1. The major league leader with 40 homers during the regular season, Cruz added an RBI single to his early blast off Max Scherzer. Xavier Rhodes Jersey . Portland won Game 4 Sunday night at the Moda Center and are now up 3-1. The last time the Blazers won a playoff series came in the 2000 Western Conference semifinals against the Utah Jazz. LONDON -- It was clear something was wrong with Serena Williams from the moment she began trying to warm up for her Wimbledon doubles match Tuesday. She weakly pushed volleys into the net from a couple of feet away. She whiffed on practice strokes. She even had trouble with the simple task of collecting tennis balls from the ball kids. After Williams was examined for about 10 minutes on the sideline by medical staff, including a check of her blood pressure, the match began. After three games, though, an out-of-sorts Williams and her partner, older sister Venus, stopped. The tournament referees office and WTA later said Serena, who lost in singles Saturday, had a viral illness. "I am heartbroken Im not able to continue in the tournament," Serena said in a statement. "I thought I could rally this morning because I really wanted to compete, but this bug just got the best of me." About 1 1/2 hours after leaving the court, Serena walked out of the All England Club, still wearing her white match outfit, and with a tournament towel draped around her waist. She got into a car and was driven away. "Unfortunately, Serena has been feeling unwell for the past few days and she just couldnt play to her potential today," Venus said. "Im really proud of her for trying because we just love playing doubles together." They have won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles as a pair, including five at Wimbledon. In singles, the 32-year-old Serena is ranked No. 1 and owns 17 major championships, the most among active women; five came at the All England Club. "We were all looking forward to a great match. From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of the fans for their cheers and understanding," said Serena, who was beaten in tthree sets by 25th-seeded Alize Cornet in the third round of singles.dddddddddddd "I look forward to returning to Wimbledon next year." While being looked at by a doctor before the start of the second-round doubles match against Kristina Barrois and Stefanie Voegele, Serena hunched over and covered her face with her hands. During the delay, one of the Williams other sisters, along with Serenas agent and her hitting partner, left their seats in the stands. Eventually, play began. With Serena serving in the third game, she was broken at love with four double-faults. One of the best servers in the womens game, she hit balls that bounced before reaching the net. At love-40 in that game, chair umpire Kader Nouni took the unusual step of climbing down from his perch and walking over to speak to Serena. She then served another double-fault to fall behind 3-0. Serena and Venus walked to the sideline holding hands, and Nouni announced to the crowd at No. 1 Court: "Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Miss Williams has to retire." Serena wiped away tears as she walked toward the courts exit. Her career has been marked by health problems. She missed eight months after having surgery on her left knee in 2003, the year she had completed a self-styled "Serena Slam" by winning four consecutive major titles. Days after winning Wimbledon in 2010, Williams cut both feet on broken glass while leaving a restaurant, leading to two operations on her right foot. Then she got clots in her lungs and needed to inject herself with a blood thinner. Those shots led to a pool of blood gathering under her stomachs skin, requiring another hospital procedure. In all, she was off the tour for about 10 months, returning in 2011.
