PARIS -- French league champion Paris Saint-Germain broke the record for most points in a season by defeating Lille 3-1 on Saturday. PSG has 86 points, two more than Lyons record in 2006. Brazilian defender Marquinhos headed home a rebound in the 41st minute after Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama denied Lucas Moura. Lucas proved more clinical in the 66th, taking a pass from Javier Pastore to double the lead with an angled strike. The PSG winger fed Blaise Matuidi for the third goal in the 83rd. Lille substitute Jonathan Delaplace capitalized on a turnover from Marco Verratti inside the area to score a consolation goal in the last minute. "We rediscovered a PSG clinical in front of goal," PSG coach Laurent Blanc said. "Its been a while since we last scored three goals." The hosts were down to 10 men in the 36th when Lille midfielder Marvin Martin was sent off for a stamp on Yohan Cabayes right ankle. Cabaye was carried off and replaced by Ezequiel Lavezzi in the 42nd. Blanc rested Brazil defender Thiago Silva and Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani. PSG clinched its fourth league title on Wednesday despite losing 2-1 to Rennes. Saint-Etienne made up ground in the race for the last Champions League berth by moving within two points of third-place Lille with a 3-1 win at Nantes. The team finishing third qualifies for the preliminary round of the Champions League. Saint-Etienne striker Mevlut Erding opened the scoring by nodding in a free kick from Max-Alain Gradel in the 10th. The visitors took a 3-0 lead with a penalty from Gradel in the 23rd, and a curling shot from Erding on the stroke of halftime. Nantes winger Serge Gakpe scored late. Second-place Monaco, already assured of a Champions League spot, beat relegated Valenciennes 2-1. Fifth-place Lyon had its lead over Marseille cut to one point in the race for the last Europa League spot. Lorient edged Lyon 1-0 with a low strike from midfielder Cheick Doukoure in the 53rd. Lyon was down to 10 men from the 13th when defender Mouhamadou Dabo was red-carded for tripping Bryan Pele. "Its a bad result," Lyon coach Remi Garde said, "but we still have our fate in our hands." Marseille drew 1-1 at Bordeaux. Marseille midfielder Benoit Cheyrou headed in a cross from Brice Djadjedje in the 31st before Bordeaux striker Cheick Diabate equalized with a close-range effort in the 66th. French Cup winner Guingamp secured safety by beating mid-table Toulouse 2-0. Evian and Sochaux were the only teams still under the threat of relegation and will meet in the last round next Saturday. "We have the luck to play this last match at home," Sochaux coach Herve Renard said. "There will be a great atmosphere. Its up to us to turn it into a beautiful day." Evian downed Nice 2-0 to stay 17th, one point clear of Sochaux, which won 2-1 at Rennes. Last-place Ajaccio stunned Reims 2-1, and mid-table Bastia beat Montpellier 2-0.

MASON, Ohio -- Serena Williams did enough to get a hard-fought victory. Williams earned a sloppy 2-6, 6-2, 6-4 win over Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday to reach the final of the Western & Southern Open. The top-seeded Williams bounced back from losing her first set of the tournament and committing 41 unforced errors, 20 more than Wozniacki, to beat the 12th-seeded Dane for the eighth time in nine career matches. In the first mens semifinal, sixth-seeded David Ferrer earned his first trip to the tournament final in 11 appearances with a 6-3, 6-2 win over unseeded Julien Benneteau. Williams had to shake off a tight lower back before turning her game around, she said. "It was definitely feeling super tight in the match," she said. "Thats when I really relaxed, to be honest. By then I was able just to go for more shots and come to the net more and just kind of just not have anything to lose." She also tried to shorten points with booming serves, leading to getting just 58 per cent of her serves in play. "I just had to go for rockets because I wasnt feeling great," she said. "I thought, Listen, Im going to go out and just try to hit aces and see what happens. It started working for me. I was like, OK. Hopefully my arm will be OK tomorrow. Well see." Williams and Wozniacki both struggled with their serves, leading to a combined 15 service breaks, including the first five games of the third set. Wozniacki was broken in eight of nine service games in one stretch and connecteed on just 54 per cent of her first serves.dddddddddddd "I didnt get many first serves in," Wozniacki said. "When I did, they werent placed very well. Its frustrating, because you lose a set 6-4 in the third and you only hold serve once. "I actually broke Serena three times in the set. I dont think that happens very often to her either, so, you know, you feel like youre there and my all game was there. "I was fighting. I was running. I was trying to take the ball early. I was returning well. Then my serve comes around and I cant seem to hold serve. Its frustrating thing when youre out there on the court." Williams has never won the championship in five previous appearances. She lost a third-set tiebreaker to Victoria Azarenka last year. Williams will play the winner of Saturday nights match between fifth-seeded Maria Sharapova and ninth-seeded Ana Ivanovic for the championship on Sunday. With the win, Williams also clinched the U.S. Open Series womens title. Williams has won it three of the past four years and will attempt to set another record for the largest payout in tennis history at the U.S. Open -- $4 million ($3 million for winning the U.S. Open and a $1 million bonus for winning the U.S. Open as the series champion). The two-time defending U.S. Open champion won both the U.S. Open Series title and the U.S. Open last year. She is the only woman to win the US Open Series bonus challenge three times (2011, 2013, 2014). No other woman has won it more than once. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
