FRANKFURT, Germany -- Title holder Bayern Munich cruised to its 20th German Cup final by beating second-division Kaiserslautern 5-1 on Wednesday. Bayern will seek its 17th title in the May 17 final in Berlin against Borussia Dortmund. Three-time winner Dortmund advanced on Tuesday by beating Wolfsburg 2-0. It will be a repeat of the 2012 final that Dortmund won 5-2. Dortmund won 3-0 in Muinich in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Bastian Schweinsteiger opened the scoring in the 24th, Toni Kroos doubled the lead in the 32nd and Thomas Mueller converted a penalty in the 50th for a 3-0 lead before Simon Zoller pulled one back for the visitors on the hour mark. Mario Mandzukic scored in the 78th and substitute Mario Goetze completed the victory in injury time. Kaiserslautern, fourth in the second division, played well and sought its chance in attack. "We played against in my opinion the best team in the world and we held our ground most of the time," Kaiserslauterns coach Kosta Runjaic said. Bayern has been struggling in domestic competition, losing two and drawing one of the three matches since it clinched the Bundesliga title. "We downshifted a little bit in the Bundesliga, but its important to win big games," Kroos said. Bayern has reached the semifinals of the Champions League and visits Real Madrid next week. Bayern is on course to retain all three titles it captured last season in an unprecedented sweep for the club. Schweinsteiger headed in a free kick cross from Arjen Robben, who also set up Kroos for the second goal. And Robben earned the penalty, after being felled by Kaiserslautern defender Chris Loewe. Madzukic was set up by Goetze, and slotted inside the far post. Goetze then waltzed through Kaiserslauterns defence to score after Franck Riberys backheel pass. Bayerns regular goalkeeper Manuel Neuer sat out the match with a calf injury and was replaced by Lukas Raeder. Ed Dickson Jersey

BIRMINGHAM, England -- Kimiko Date-Krumm, the 43-year-old Japanese who is the tours oldest player, halted Daniela Hantuchovas title defence on Thursday to reach the quarterfinals of the Aegon Classic, a Wimbledon warmup event. It was 18 years ago that Date-Krumm reached a Wimbledon semifinal. She proved an enduring grass-court threat by shortening the rallies, making her first serve count, and advancing at unexpected moments. The most crucial phase of her startling 6-4, 6-0 success was the 10th game, in which Hantuchova made a push to recoup the early loss of a service game. The seventh-seeded Slovak briefly re-found the ground-stroking rhythm which Date-Krumm took away, and earned one break back point for 5-5. But once that was denied her - Date-Krumm moved sharply forward and put away a smash - Hantuchovas standard fell rather limply. Not even a dispute with the umpire about a line decision got her competitive adrenaline flowing. Date-Krumms triumph followed a two-hour encounter and a lengthy doubles the previous day, and it was suggested thhat she must surely feel tired.dddddddddddd "I do, of course," she said. "When I woke up my back was so tired, but I tried to move, and do some stretching. My body is different from when I reached the Wimbledon semifinal, and so is my game - but I enjoy it more." She next plays not the second-seeded Samantha Stosur, but her Australian compatriot Casey Dellacqua, whose 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 win over the former U.S. Open champion was the third in three meetings between them. Later Thursday, Aleksandra Woznaik of Blainville, Que., fell 1-6, 7-5, 6-4 to fourth seed Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium. The departure of these seeded stalwarts increased a feeling that Sloane Stephens, the second youngest player in the top 20, might take a significant step this week. The 21-year-old Stephens has never reached a WTA Tour final but her 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-1 win over Alison Riske, a fellow American who has reached two semifinals here, carried her within two wins of achieving that. The third-seeded Stephens next plays Zhang Shuai of China. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys
