Wimbledon, England - Australian Open champion Li Na, former Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska and 2011 titlist Petra Kvitova were a trio of second-round winners, while former world No. 1 star Victoria Azarenka was ousted Wednesday at The Championships. The second-seeded Li defeated Austrian Yvonne Meusburger 6-2, 6-2 in just over an hour. The Chinese star converted 6-of-10 break-point opportunities and held a lopsided 33-4 advantage in winners. The two-time Grand Slam champion Li will meet Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova on Friday. The fourth-seeded Radwanska was tested in the first set by Australian Casey Dellacqua before posting a 6-4, 6-0 victory in less than an hour on Centre Court. The Polish star was the runner-up at the All England Club two years ago. Radwanskas third-round opponent will be Portugals Michelle Larcher de Brito. The sixth-seeded left-hander Kvitova drubbed German Mona Barthel 6-2, 6-0 to improve to an impressive 21-5 lifetime at Wimbledon. Up next for Kvitova will be five-time Wimbledon champ Venus Williams. The 30th-seeded Williams got past Japans Kurumi Nara 7-6 (7-4), 6-1 for her 73rd career match win here (73-11). The 34-year-old former world No. 1 Williams struck 46 winners, including seven aces, to reach the third round of a major for only the second time in her last 10 Grand Slam tournaments. The 6-foot-1 Williams towered over Nara, the shortest player in the womens top 100 at 5-foot-1. Meanwhile, Serbias Bojana Jovanovski knocked out a rusty eighth-seeded Azarenka 6-3, 3-6, 7-5. The two-time Australian Open champ Azarenka just returned to the tour last week, and lost her only match, after being sidelined with a foot injury for three months. Azarenka reached back-to-back Wimbledon semifinals in 2011 and 2012 before pulling out in the second round here a year ago due to an injury. In another match involving a former world No. 1, 16th-seeded Danish star Caroline Wozniacki committed only two unforced errors in cruising past British wild card Naomi Broady 6-3, 6-2 in a mere 59 minutes. Wozniacki, who is still seeking a trip into her first-ever Wimbledon quarterfinal, will meet little-known Croat Ana Konjuh in the round of 32. In other play involving top-16 seeds, No. 10 Aussie Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova, of Slovakia, edged out Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck 3-6, 6-3, 8-6 and American Lauren Davis upended No. 12 Italian Flavia Pennetta 6-4, 7-6 (7-4). Also, 22nd-seeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova bested Japans Misaki Doi 7-5, 6-4; 23rd-seeded Czech Lucie Safarova saw her way past Slovenian Polona Hercog 7-6 (9-7), 7-5; Zahlavova Strycova upset 32nd-seeded Russian Elena Vesnina 6-4, 6-2; and talented Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia took out American Varvara Lepchenko 7-5, 6-3. Other second-round action saw Larcher de Brito get past Aussie Jarmila Gajdosova 6-3, 4-6, 6-3; Chinese Peng Shuai paste Russian Maria Kirilenko 6-0, 6-3; Konjuh beat Belgian Yanina Wickmayer 3-6, 6-2, 6-2; and Czech Tereza Smitkova cool off American Coco Vandeweghe 6-3, 7-6 (7-4). Vandeweghe captured her first-ever WTA title, on grass, in The Netherlands last week. The first round concluded Wednesday when 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Vera Zvonareva, of Russia, snuck past Brit Tara Moore 6-4, 6-7 (3-7), 9-7 and Kazakhstans Zarina Diyas topped Frances Kristina Mladenovic 7-6 (7-4), 6-4. The second round is scheduled to conclude Thursday, including a match for top- seeded Serena Williams, who will be opposed by South African Chanelle Scheepers. The American great is a 17-time major champion, including five Wimbledon championships, just like her older sister, Venus. Meanwhile, third-seeded French Open runner-up Simona Halep will face Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko and fifth-seeded Roland Garros champion Maria Sharapova will take on Swiss Timea Bacsinszky. Sharapova captured her lone Wimbledon title by upsetting Serena in the final here 10 years ago. Also on Thursdays schedule will be 11th-seeded former top-ranked star Ana Ivanovic and 13th-seeded two-time 2014 Grand Slam semifinalist Eugenie Bouchard. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

.com) - Houston Texans interim head coach Wade Phillips confirmed Monday that starting quarterback Case Keenum sustained a sprained right thumb during Sundays 25-3 loss in Indianapolis.OAKLAND, Calif. -- Al Jefferson had 30 points and 13 rebounds, Gerald Henderson added 17 points and eight rebounds and the Charlotte Bobcats blew past the Golden State Warriors 91-75 on Tuesday night in Kemba Walkers much-anticipated return. Walker finished with seven points, seven assists and six rebounds after missing the last seven games with a sprained left ankle. He played 33 minutes. The Bobcats controlled the game from the start, going ahead by 18 points late in the third quarter and 22 midway through the fourth. Charlotte, which shot 47.4 per cent, held the Warriors to a season-low 31.2 per cent shooting. Stephen Curry had 17 points and 11 assists against his hometown team, Klay Thompson scored 12 and Andrew Bogut grabbed 15 rebounds for the Warriors, who have been held below 38 per cent shooting in three of their past four games. The Warriors briefly gave their announced sellout crowd of 19,596 something to cheer for when Marreese Speights made a half-court heave as the third quarter expired to slice Charlottes lead 72-57. Any hope quickly faded when Anthony Tolliver hit a pair of 3-pointers to put the Bobcats up 78-60 lead with 9:51 remaining. The Bobcats closed out their road trip 3-1 and handed a streaky Golden State team another stinging setback. Warriors coach Mark Jackson publicly called out his team last month for playing down to their opponents too often this season, especially at home. Apparently, his players still havent received the message. The Bobcats (22-28) swept the season against the Warriorss (29-20) after beating Golden State 115-111 in Charlotte on Dec.dddddddddddd 9. And out West, they outhustled and outshot the Warriors from the start. Charlotte ran Golden States prolific shooters off the 3-point line, forcing them into difficult mid-range jumpers. The Bobcats were equally efficient on the offensive end, going ahead 26-13 after the first quarter. The Warriors simply looked lost and lethargic. They hovered just above 20 per cent shooting for most of the first half, and their usually loud crowd stayed mostly silent. The Bobcats went ahead 44-27 with 3:42 left in the second quarter and 51-39 at halftime. It was only the third time all season the Warriors had been held below 40 points in the first half. Golden State trimmed Charlottes lead to eight early in the third quarter on Thompsons 3-pointer. Bobcats coach Steve Clifford called timeout to regroup his players, who responded by building an 18-point lead before Speights hit a halfcourt shot as time expired to bring the Warriors within 72-57 entering the fourth. That was pretty much the only celebration Charlotte allowed. NOTES: The Warriors worst shooting performance before Tuesday was when they shot 35.5 per cent in a 105-83 loss at Houston on Dec. 6. ... Warriors backup centre Jermaine ONeal had nine points and eight rebounds in 16 minutes in his first game since Dec. 9 at Charlotte. He missed 26 games recovering from surgery on his right wrist. ... The Bobcats dont play again until hosting San Antonio on Saturday. ... The Warriors host the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. ' ' '
