Wimbledon, England - Top-seeded former champion Novak Djokovic and reigning titlist Andy Murray highlighted Wednesdays second-r Antworten

Wimbledon, England - Top-seeded former champion Novak Djokovic and reigning titlist Andy Murray highlighted Wednesdays second-round winners, while Spanish star David Ferrer went by way of an upset at The Championships, Wimbledon. Wholesale Air Jordan . The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks. The Serbian stalwart saved all five break-point chances he faced and needed 3 hours, 17 minutes to get past his friend Stepanek in perhaps the best match of Week 1 thus far. "I should not have complicated myself this way, but credit to him [Stepanek] for coming up big on some big points," Djokovic said. Djokovic, whos coached by three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker, titled here in 2011 and lost to Murray in last years marquee finale. Up next for the French Open runner-up Djokovic will be former top-10 Frenchman Gilles Simon. The third-seeded two-time major champion Murray dropped just two games in blasting 2013 NCAA singles champion Blaz Rola, of Slovenia, 6-1, 6-1, 6-0 on the No. 1 Court at the All England Club, where the Scot has now won his last 15 matches, including an Olympic gold medal run in 2012. The 27-year-old Murray raced past the helpless 23-year-old Rola in 1 hour, 24 minutes. Rola has been playing mainly on the lower-tier Challenger circuit and has very little grass-court experience. Murray beat Djokovic in last years final to give Britain its first male singles Wimbledon champion in 77 years. Up next for the British star will be rising Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut. Unheralded Russian Andrey Kuznetsov stunned the seventh-seeded former French Open runner-up Ferrer in 6-7 (5-7), 6-0, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 fashion on the No. 2 Court. Ferrer, who reached the quarterfinals here the previous two years, had been slowed by a stomach ailment over the last two weeks. Ferrers streak of reaching at least the third round at 17 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments came to an end. Meanwhile, sixth-seeded Czech and 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych snuck past capable Aussie Bernard Tomic 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-3), 6-1 and rapidly rising Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, seeded 11th at this fortnight, blew past Aussie Luke Saville 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. Dimitrov, whos growing in stature on grass, captured his first-ever ATP-level grass-court title at Londons Queens Club two weeks ago. A Day 3 upset came when Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky ousted 12th-seeded French Open semifinalist Ernests Gulbis, of Latvia, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5). Stakhovsky famously stunned Roger Federer in the second round here last year. Sixteenth-seeded Italian Fabio Fognini moved on by overcoming Brit Tim Puetz, 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 and Taiwans Jimmy Wang upended 17th-seeded Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny 7-6 (7-1), 6-2, 6-7 (5-7), 6-3. Also, 20th-seeded towering South African Kevin Anderson topped Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, 7-6 (7-0), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4; 21st-seeded Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov overcame last weeks Den Bosch, Netherlands, runner-up Benjamin Becker, of Germany, 6-7 (4-7), 7-6 (7-0), 6-3, 6-4; 26th-seeded Croat Marin Cilic came back to beat Austrian Andreas Haider-Maurer 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4; and a hot 27th-seeded Bautista Agut downed Czech Jan Hernych 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2. Bautista Agut corralled his first-ever ATP title, on grass, last week in The Netherlands. Other second-round results saw Frances Jeremy Chardy outlast Aussie Marinko Matosevic 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (9-7), 7-6 (11-9), 4-6, 7-5 in 4 hours, 15 minutes, Simon handle Dutchman Robin Haase 7-6 (7-1), 6-4, 6-4, and Argentine Leonardo Mayer dismiss former Aussie Open runner-up and former Wimbledon semifinalist Marcos Baghdatis, of Cyprus, 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. One match was suspended because of darkness, as 14th-seeded French star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was tied with American fellow big-server Sam Querrey 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-7 (4-7), 6-3, 9-9 when play was called for the day. Second-round matches will come Thursday for second-seeded world No. 1 Rafael Nadal and the seven-time Wimbledon champ Federer. The 14-time Grand Slam winner Nadal will take on Czech Lukas Rosol, while the fourth-seeded former No. 1 and 17-time major titlist Federer will encounter Luxembourgs Gilles Muller. The big-serving Rosol shocked Nadal in the second round here two years ago. Also on the Day 4 schedule will be fifth-seeded Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka, eighth-seeded Canadian slugger Milos Raonic, ninth-seeded American John Isner, and 10th seed Kei Nishikori of Japan. Wawrinka will tangle with Taiwans Yen-Hsun Lu, while Raonic will meet American Jack Sock, Isner will encounter Finnish veteran Jarkko Nieminen, and Nishikori will face American Denis Kudla.

Wholesale Air Jordan From China . TSN was honoured with several awards, with Rod Smith and James Duthie sharing the win for Best Sports Host for SportsCentre and the NHL: Season On The Brink coverage, respectively. http://www.wholesaleairjordanfromchina.com/ . The Flames announced Monday that Treliving, a former assistant general manager with the Coyotes, will take over the vacant GM spot in Calgary. "Im ready for this,"Treliving said.In order for the New York Rangers to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for the second time in three years, the club is going to have to do something its never done before: beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs. The Rangers hope to strike first in this fifth postseason meeting between the franchises, as they visit Pittsburgh for Fridays Game 1 battle at CONSOL Energy Center. The Penguins are 4-0 all-time in postseason series against the Blueshirts and boast a 16-4 record over those four playoff encounters. The only time New York was able to post more than one win in a series against the Pens was in the 1992 Division Finals, when Pittsburgh downed the Rangers in six games en route to its second straight Stanley Cup title. The most recent playoff encounter was in the 2008 conference semifinals when Pittsburgh ousted the Rangers in five games. New York, which made the conference finals in 2012, is in the second round for the third straight season after beating Philadelphia in seven games in the opening round. Home-ice advantage came in handy for the Blueshirts, as they claimed a 2-1 win at Madison Square Garden in the final test against the Flyers, improving to 6-0 all-time in Game 7s on home ice. In this round, however, the Rangers will have to prove they can win on the road against the Metropolitan Division champion Penguins. "Were battle-tested and ready for the next series," said Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault. "Philly was a real tough opponent, and you have to give them credit, it was a great series, but we know if you look on paper Pittsburgh is probably one of the best teams in the league. They were (13) points ahead of us in the regular season, so were going to have our hands full." The Pens and Rangers split four meetings during the 2013-14 campaign, with both teams recording 2-1-1 records. New York had lost five straight in Pittsburgh before ending that road slide with a 4-3 shootout win on Feb. 7. Game 2 is scheduled for Sunday in the Steel City, while New York gets to host the third meeting on Monday. Fatigue could be an issue for the Rangers at the start of this series, as New York will have played five games in a span of seven days through Game 3 of this set. The Pens, on the other hand, had three full days of rest heading into Game 1. Pittsburgh is in the second round after beating Columbus in six games during the conference quarterfinals. The Pens are after a second straight trip to the East finals after getting swept by Boston in the penultimate playoff round last spring. A big topic of conversation in the middle of the first round was Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkins lack of goal-scoring. But, after Malkin turned in a hat trick to help Pittsburgh clinch the series in Game 6, that likely puts an end to the discussion for now. Malkin ended with seven points on three goals and four assists. Crosby failed to score a goal in six games, but with six assists to his credit its difficult to say he was unproductive. Still, Crosby, the odds-on favorite to win this seasons Hart TTrophy, hasnt recorded a goal in his last 11 playoff games and if he goes long without scoring one in this series it could become an issue once again.dddddddddddd Crosby and Chris Kunitz led Pittsburgh with six points apiece during the season series with New York, with the captain notching a goal and five assists and Kunitz delivering three goals and three helpers. Malkin only played in two of the four meetings and had a goal and an assist. When things go wrong for Pittsburgh, nobody gets criticized more than No. 1 goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. Last spring, Fleury was replaced by Tomas Vokoun as the clubs starting goaltender after Game 4 of the opening round against the New York Islanders and did not start another game in the playoffs. Fleury struggled at times during the conference quarterfinals against Columbus, but not enough for head coach Dan Bylsma to make the switch to current backup Jeff Zatkoff. For the most part, Fleury was solid against the Blue Jackets in Round 1. He ended the series with a .908 save percentage and 2.81 goals against average. The 29-year-old is 49-36 with a .903 save percentage and .273 GAA throughout his playoff career. The biggest advantage New York has over the Penguins could be in net, where Rangers backstop Henrik Lundqvist is as steady as they come. The 32-year-old Swede posted a .919 save percentage and 2.11 GAA in the seven games against Philadelphia Lundqvist is a big reason the Rangers are so difficult to beat in a long series. With its win over Philly, the Blueshirts became the first team in NHL history to win a Game 7 in the first round in three consecutive postseasons. In five career Game 7s, Lundqvist is 4-1 with a 1.00 GAA, a .963 save percentage and has allowed two goals or fewer in all five games. The Rangers threw a balanced scoring attack at Philadelphia, with eight players tied for the team lead with two goals apiece and 17 skaters in all registered at least one point. Martin St. Louis and Brad Richards, both members of Tampa Bays 2004 Stanley Cup-winning team, led the way with six points on two goals and four assists, while fellow forwards Carl Hagelin, Benoit Pouliot and Mats Zuccarello each had two goals and two assists. Even physical forward Daniel Carcillo joined the fun, as the ex-Flyer scored two goals against his former team, including the first marker in Wednesdays 2-1 Game 7 victory. If there is one guy who needs to get going for New York its the clubs top offensive weapon Rick Nash. The big, talented winger led the team with 26 goals during the regular season, but he failed to score against the Flyers while notching four assists. Over 23 career playoff games, Nash only has managed two goals while recording 10 assists. Zuccarello posted two goals and four assists to lead the Rangers in scoring against the Pens during the season series. Both Fleury and Lundqvist started all four games in net. Pittsburghs No. 1 netminder had a 3.12 GAA in the season series, while Lundqvist was slightly better with a 2.88 GAA. ' ' '
