Yoko: World blessed to have had Lennon

New York -- Artist and musician Yoko Ono took to Twitter Wednesday to mark the 30th anniversary of her husband John Lennon's slaying in New York.

The peace activist, rock 'n' roll icon and former member of the Beatles was 40 when he was gunned down outside his Manhattan apartment building by a deranged fan who remains in prison.

"Today, on this painful anniversary, please join me in remembering John with deep love and respect," The Hollywood Reporter said Ono tweeted Wednesday. "Despite his short, 40 years of life, he gave so much to the world. The world was blessed with fortune to have known John. ... We continue to learn so much from him even today. John, I love you. 2010/12/8 Yoko Ono Lennon."

Upsets mark first day of WTA Champions

Bali, Indonesia -- Kimiko Date Krumm and Ana Ivanovic pulled off upsets Thursday in the first matches of the WTA's Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions in Indonesia.

Date Krumm eliminated top-seeded Li Na in a seesaw 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 match while Ivanovic routed No. 3-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-0, 6-1. Date Krumm and Ivanovic will meet in the tournament semifinals Saturday.

Date Krumm and Li combined for 13 service breaks in 29 games, with a Date Krumm break in the 10th game of the third set deciding the match.

Date Krumm managed to hold serve just once in the second set and twice in the third but she won because she had a slight edge in the return game.
