    • who have lost six in a row and 13
      SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Reliever Guillermo Mota has announced he is retiring after 14 seasons in the major leagues. Mota was a non-roster invitee to the Kansas City Royals camp and did not pitch last season. The 40-year-old right-hander made 743 career relief appearances with a 3.94 ERA for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Dodgers, Florida Marlins, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants. He was part of San Franciscos World Series championship teams in 2010 and 2012. In 2003 and 04, Mota topped National League relievers in innings pitched. In 2007 while with the Mets, he was suspended 50 games for using performance-enhancing drugs. Tyler Naquin Jersey .Voegele will next play Anna Schmiedlova of Slovakia, who saved 10 of 16 break points to defeat Annika Beck of Germany 7-6 (6), 6-4.Also, Marina Erakovic of New Zealand defeated eighth-seeded Caroline Garcia of France 6-2, 4-6, 6-4. Trevor Bauer Jersey . The Heat centre scored 10 of his 30 points early in the first quarter to silence the Toronto fans as Miami defeated the Raptors 113-101 on Friday night. http://www.authenticbaseshopindians.com/authentic-roberto-perez-indians-jersey/ .C. - Goodyear has warned teams that increased speeds at Charlotte Motor Speedway will put a heavy emphasis on the right front tires in Saturday nights race a€” a potentially key development for drivers trying to advance in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. Joe Carter Jersey . "Youre next." Hardly. Iguodala tormented his former team with a game better than any he ever played in eight seasons with the 76ers. Kenny Lofton Jersey .A. Dickey earned an American League Gold Glove on Tuesday to become the first Toronto Blue Jays pitcher to win the award.DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies returned to Coors Field a week ago scuffling on offence. They finished their final homestand with a dominant performance at the plate. Michael Cuddyer homered, Rafael Ynoa drove in three runs and the Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-3 on Sunday. The Rockies swept a four-game series for the first time this season. It was their second sweep in as many homestands after going three months without one. "Im glad we finished with a strong homestand," manager Walt Weiss said. "A little token of appreciation to the fans that have been hanging in there with us." Brandon Barnes had two hits and two RBIs while Wilin Rosario also had two hits and scored three runs for the Rockies. Colorado has won a season-high six straight while trying to avoid a third straight last-place finish. The Rockies offence came into the homestand having scored 10 runs in six games but exploded against the Dodgers and Diamondbacks. Colorado scored 61 runs in its final six games at Coors Field this season to climb out of the NL West cellar, three games ahead of reeling Arizona. "It was good to see us not quit. Were still playing the game hard, still playing good baseball," Cuddyer said. "Thats big. Thats big for a lot of these guys to see were not quitting. Going forward, years to come, its good to see guys trying to play the game." Rookie right-hander Christian Bergman (3-4) allowed two runs on six hits and struck out three in 5 2-3 innings to pick up the victory. Mark Trumbo homered twice and drove in all three runs for the Diamondbacks, who have lost six in a row and 13 of 16. "In June we swept them, outscored them 32-17. And its kind of a reversal in this series in four games," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "I dont really have an explanation. We tried to throw everything at them. They swung the bats really well, scored a lot of runs. And we werent swinging the bats very well, so (we were) unable to shut them down." DJ LeMahieu got things rolling for Colorado with an RBI single in the second and Barnes made it 3-0 with a two-run double in the third. The Rockies broke it open in the fifth off starter Wade Miley (8-12).dddddddddddd Stubbs had a run-scoring single and Ynoa doubled with the bases loaded to knock in two more and give Colorado a 6-0 lead. Miley allowed six runs on eight hits in 4 1-3 innings. "Didnt have very good command at all. And its getting old for me to have one good start and the next start where you walk three or four guys," Miley said. "Couldnt find the fastball early and it just kind of snowballed with every other pitch." Trumbo hit a two-run homer off Bergman in the sixth to make it 6-2. Bergman left for left-hander Franklin Morales and was disappointed he couldnt finish the inning. "Obviously I want to stay in the game," he said. "I feel like I can get out of that inning. Its two outs, nobody on and a four-run lead. If I dont feel like I couldnt finish that inning I probably shouldnt be out there in the first place. I felt like I had enough left but it is what it is." Cuddyers home run in the eighth extended the Rockies streak to 22 straight home games in which theyve gone deep. Its the second longest streak in franchise history and longest home streak by in baseball since Philadelphia had a 22-game streak in 2006. DOUBLE DIGIT DINGERS Cuddyers home run was his 10th of the season. He now has had 10 or more home runs in six straight seasons. He has had double-digit homers in 10 of his 11 full seasons in the majors. HOME AWAY FROM HOME Trumbo has found a comfort level at Coors Field. He is now hitting .400 with seven home runs and 15 RBIs in his last seven games in Denver. TRAINERS ROOM Rockies: 1B Justin Morneau was given the day off for rest. This was a planned rest for Morneau, who entered Sunday tied with Pittsburghs Josh Harrison in the NL batting race. UP NEXT Diamondbacks: RHP Josh Collmenter (10-8) will face the Minnesota Twins for the first time while trying to set a career high in wins. Collmenter also had 10 wins in 2011. Rockies: Rookie LHP Tyler Matzek will make just his 19th career start Monday and four will have come against the San Diego Padres. Matzek threw a three-hit shutout against San Diego on Sept. 5 for his first win against the Padres.

      Brian Rafalskis NHL comeback attempt is coming to early end. TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports that the Florida Everblades of the ECHL have released the 40-year-old defenceman, 18 days after he signed with the team. Rafalski had not played for the club since January 18 because of a sore back. He skated in three games with the Everblades and had one assist. In 11 NHL seasons, Rafalski totaled 515 points with the New Jersey Devils and Detroit Red Wings. He retired from the NHL after the 2010-11 season. Willy Caballero Jersey .

At UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany, in June 2009, the six-foot-11 Dutch heavyweight was gushing blood out of his forehead after taking a string of hammer blows from Denis Stojnic while on his back in the first round. Stojnics forearm looked as if it had been dipped in blood. But a bloody Struve rallied in the second round to take Stojnics back and choke him out. The German crowd roared as Struve, his face a crimson mask and long torso tinged red from blood, rose in victory. "Thats one hell of a Band-Aid," UFC president Dana White said dryly, referring to a plaster the size of a cigarette package on Struves forehead at the post-fight news conference. Struves size -- he is the tallest fighter in UFC history and is tied for longest reach with light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones -- combined with slick kickboxing and submission skills have helped him rise up the heavyweight ranks while compiling a 9-4 record in the UFC. But his career appeared over last year when he was diagnosed with a rare heart condition. Given the OK to resume fighting by his doctors in the Netherlands and the UFCs cardiologist, Struve (29-6) returns to the cage Saturday when he takes on Matt Mitrione at UFC 175 in Las Vegas. "It looks good," Struve, who divides his training between the Netherlands and Los Angeles. "I just need to do checkups two times a year with my doctors in Holland and two times a year with my doctors in LA. "Thats no problem for me. I actually like that I know for sure that my heart is healthy." Mitrione (7-3) is a former NFL defensive lineman who switched to MMA via Season 10 of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality TV show in 2009. Struve, ranked 12th among heavyweight contenders, last fought in March 2013 when he suffered a broken jaw in a knockout loss to hard-hitting Mark Hunt in Japan. Struve says he had been sick for six weeks before the bout and was still under the weather during the fight. "I felt horrible." And he just couldnt recover after. "I just couldnt get over the jet lag. I couldnt sleep at night," he said. "I just didnt feel good and I didnt have any energy." He returned to full training some three months after the loss. Then one day at his parents house, he got dizzy standing up after working at the computer. He sat down and blacked out briefly, "which scared me because I had nevver had that.dddddddddddd" He went to the hospital, which couldnt find anything but asked him to come back for a stress ultrasound test which uses high frequency sound waves to examine the hearts anatomy and function. "Thats where they found it," he said. Struve was diagnosed with a leaking aortic valve, as well an enlarged heart. It meant that his heart was only pumping 60 per cent of his blood into the aorta and then the rest of his body. The remaining 40 per cent was ending up back in the heart chamber. Doctors used medication to control his blood pressure and the demands on his heart. Struve says he will probably have to undergo surgery at some point but hopes to do it after his fighting career. "As it is right now, its getting better every day," he said. He kept training throughout, raising his regimen as his health improved. He also taught MMA, which he said he enjoyed immensely. "I just enjoy being healthy and living a good life," he said. "I love this sport." MMA takes a toll, however. While Struve puts on exciting fights, he has endured punishing knockouts losses at the hands of Junior Dos Santos, Roy (Big Country) Nelson, Travis Browne and Hunt. The big Dutchman says he feels a lot more energy these days. "And a lot more joy in life, if you want to say so, because if you feel tied all day long, youre just miserable." But Struve says he may have taken time off from fighting even if it hadnt had the heart scare. He had plenty on his mind. "This was by far the hardest year of my life," he added. "Not only because of this but my father passed away in October after being sick for a year and a half. And then there were some other things that happened close to me that really impacted me." Back training, his performance in the gym gives him confidence that ring rust wont be an issue Saturday night. While Struve says he has got on well with Mitrione in the past, he says its a "little strange" the American asked for the fight before he was cleared to compete again. Middleweight champion Chris Weidman defends his title against former light-heavyweight champion Lyoto (The Dragon) Machida -- ranked No. 3 among 185-pound contenders -- in the main event at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

    • a point ahead of Carolina
      John Tortorella will try to lead the struggling Vancouver Canucks to a win as the fiery head coach returns to the bench for Mondays road test against the Detroit Red Wings. Tortorella has completed a 15-day suspension for his antics during a 3-2 shootout win against the Calgary Flames on Jan. 18 and returns to a club that has lost 12 times in its last 16 trips to the ice. The Canucks also tweeted that Henrik Sedin, who has missed the past six games with bruised ribs, will also return to the lineup. Angered by Calgary head coach Bob Hartleys decision to start that game with his fourth line, a move that helped instigate a game-opening line brawl, Tortorella tried to get at Hartley in the Calgary locker room between the first and second periods but he was restrained from doing so by Flames players and members of the Vancouver staff. While Tortorella wasnt allowed to have any contact with his team during the 15-day ban, Hartley was fined $25,000 for his role in the brawl. The Canucks, who are 4-9-3 over their last 16 games, went 2-4-0 while Tortorella was serving his suspension and the club has lost its last three tilts in regulation. Assistant coach Mike Sullivan handled the bench duties during Tortorellas absence and he relinquishes the reins with Vancouver still hanging onto the eighth and final playoff seed in the West. The Canucks are just one point ahead of Phoenix for that distinction. Like Tortorella, Canucks captain Henrik Sedin has missed the last six games, although his layoff has been due to a rib injury and not a suspension. Sedin, who had played in 679 straight games before bruised ribs led to the end of the iron man streak, participated in a full practice on Sunday but he expects to sit out another tilt today. Meanwhile, Daniel Sedin, Henriks twin brother and linemate, has gone 15 straight games without a goal. The winger has five assists during the goal- scoring drought. The Canucks were handed a 4-3 loss Friday in Winnipeg, as Devin Setoguchi scored the game-winner for the Jets with 2:56 to play in the third period. Ryan Kesler had a goal and two assists for the Canucks, while Eddie Lack allowed all four goals on 34 shots. "Well, it was frustrating because we fought our way back into the game," said Sullivan. "I give our guys credit for fighting back, but weve got to find a way to win that game." Vancouver ended January with a 4-9-2 record and the club lost six of seven on the road during the month. The Canucks, who will make the second stop on five- game swing tonight, are 13-11-4 as the road team this season. The Red Wings have lost three of their last four games (1-1-2) and recently split a home-and-home series with Washington. Detroit won the home portion of the two-game series Friday night at Joe Louis Arena, claiming a 4-3 shootout victory, but the Wings fell 6-5 in overtime in Sundays wild battle at Verizon Center. Alex Ovechkin scored a power-play goal 2:37 into overtime to lift the Capitals to Sundays win. Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith was called for tripping at the 1:26 mark of the extra session. The Capitals moved the puck around and John Carlson fed Ovechkin for a one-timer from the left circle. Detroits Gustav Nyquist posted his first career hat trick and picked up an assist on Justin Abdelkaders goal that tied the game at 5-5 with 13:35 remaining in the third period. Henrik Zetterberg recorded three assists for the Red Wings, while Jimmy Howard surrendered all six goals on 28 shots in the loss. "Offensively we played really well," Zetterberg said. "Some mistakes cost us a few goals, and obviously theyre good when they get the power play." The Red Wings had been shut out in their previous three road games, so Sundays scoring outburst was a welcome sight. However, the club is tied with Philadelphia for the eighth and final playoff seed in the East and wouldve liked to have earned the extra point. The Red Wings and Flyers, who visit San Jose tonight, are only a point ahead of Carolina and Washington and two points in front of Ottawa and New Jersey. "We showed some good resilience tonight," Howard said. "We found a way to come back, scraping and clawing and getting a point. At the same time, we couldve easily been walking out of here with two points. Ive got to find a way to come up with a couple more saves for the guys." The Red Wings have won three of their last four on home ice but they are still only 10-11-8 at the Joe this season. Detroit recorded a 2-1 regulation win in Vancouver on Oct. 30 and it has won three of the past four meetings in this series. The Red Wings also have claimed two of the last three encounters in Motown. Ryan Kelly Jersey . The Blue Jackets play Thursday night at New Jersey in their first game after the NHLs Olympic hiatus.

    • But I think the thing that we kno
      LOS ANGELES -- Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a sprained right elbow, spurring worries that his injury might be even more severe. The 21-year-old Fernandez was the NL Rookie of the Year last season. He is 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA in eight starts this year. Several young pitchers have recently had elbow problems and needed Tommy John surgery. Matt Harvey, Stephen Strasburg and Patrick Corbin are among the All-Stars who have had the ligament transplant operation that can take 12 to 18 months for recovery. "Thats probably what everyone is going to talk about and continue to talk about," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said before Monday nights game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. "Weve protected him. Weve been consistent in how weve used him, with his workload. Weve given him extra days. Thats a question I dont think anybody has the answer to." Fernandez had been scheduled to start Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. "He definitely wasnt going to throw (Sundays scheduled bullpen session at San Diego) with a sore arm. Were going to take every precaution necessary. He said he felt discomfort. So immediately, were getting him the treatment and the rest he needs," Redmond said. "I think youre always concerned when youre talking about elbows. Thats something we have to wait to find out. But I think were always concerned about that with pitchers, especially," he said. Fernandez made 28 starts last year, going 12-6 with a major league-best .182 opponents batting average. His 2.19 ERA was second in the majors behind three-time defending ERA champ Clayton Kershaw. Fernandez struck out 187 in 172 2-3 innings. "You see how much he means, so much to our team and our rotation and really all of baseball. Hes been a dynamic player. Hes been a huge lift and a huge spark for our team. We just hope everything goes well and he just has to take a little bit of a break," Redmond said. The Marlins recalled left-hander Dan Jennings from Triple-A New Orleans. He made 79 relief appearances for the Marlins over the previous three seasons, going 3-5 with a 2.96 ERA. Glenn Hall Jersey . MacLean clocked 8:24.91 seconds, eclipsing the previous mark of 8:27.59 set by Brittany Reimer of Victoria at the 2005 FINA World Championships in Montreal. MacLean and Tabitha Baumann of Ottawa -- second in 8:32.37 -- both went under the qualifying standard to be nominated to the Commonwealth Games and Pan Pacific teams. Jonathan Toews Jersey .

But the head linesman said there wasnt enough contact and that Hitchens was face-guarding, which isnt a penalty in the NFL. Custom Chicago Blackhawks Jerseys . The Raptors have been outscored 88-66 in the opening quarter over a three-game span to begin the month of February. Their most recent loss, 109-101 in Sacramento on Wednesday, was eerily similar to Saturdays defeat at the hands of the Trail Blazers. Ryan Hartman Jersey . The Detroit Tigers closer blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning Wednesday night against the Dodgers.WASHINGTON - Put Jake Peavy on the San Francisco Giants, and he suddenly turns into quite a post-season performer.Same for a couple of rookies, Hunter Strickland and Joe Panik.Seems that October aura manager Bruce Bochy has cultivated with the Giants rubs off on anyone joining the club.The intense Peavy took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, Strickland and the rest of San Franciscos rested bullpen barely protected a lead, and the wild-card Giants won their league-record ninth consecutive post-season game by beating Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals 3-2 on Friday in an NL Division Series opener.Nobody is scared of the moment, said Peavy, who won the 2007 NL Cy Young Award with San Diego and last years World Series with Boston, but was 0-3 with a 9.27 ERA in five previous starts beyond the regular season. We understand that we might not be, man for man, the favourites.Perhaps they should be.Peavy, the 33-year-old right-hander with the tattoo sleeve on his left arm, finally earned his first post-season win, allowing only two hits in 5 2-3 scoreless innings, and getting plenty of help.Strickland spent much of the season at High-A and Double-A in the minors, and has all of seven major league innings on his resume, but struck out Ian Desmond swinging at a 100 mph fastball with the bases loaded in the sixth after Peavy left, cussing up a storm.Panik provided a nice defensive play at second base to end the seventh and contributed one of San Franciscos three RBI singles.No swinging from the heels for this bunch. No costly misplays in the field, either, such as the passed ball by Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos that led to an unearned run. That was one of a couple examples of jumpy play by a Washington team that won its division and led the NL with 96 wins but has never won a post-season series.Under Bochy, the Giants won the World Series in 2010 and 2012. They have not lost a post-season game since trailing 3-1 against St. Louis in the NLCS two years ago.When the lights are brightest, the stage biggest, the stakes highest, San Francisco comes through.Weve done it so many times now, it seems to be part of our DNA, said Hunter Pence, who stole a base in the fourth and came home on Brandon Belts hit off Strasburg. But I think the thing that we know is: Whats in the past is in the past, and weve got to move forward and weve got to be ready for the game tomorrow. Because if not, theyll jump all over us.Game 2 is Saturday, with Washingtons Jordan Zimmermann a€” who threw a no-hitter in the regular-season finale a€” facing Tim Hudson.Strasburg took the loss in his playoff debut; hhe was shut down in 2012 to protect his surgically repaired elbow.dddddddddddd He showed up with his best material Friday, reaching 99 mph.He gave us a chance, manager Matt Williams said. Jake was a little bit better.The No. 1 overall draft pick in 2009 lasted five-plus innings, allowing eight hits a€” all singles, all to centre or right field a€” and two runs, one earned. He tied for the NL lead this season with a career-high 242 strikeouts, but only managed two, in part because the Giants rarely missed.Wasnt like they were hitting me all around the yard, Strasburg said. Hit it where we werent.Peavy didnt top 92 mph, but that didnt matter. He put pitches where he wanted, often barely over the black edge of the plate.He mixed really well. Hes a very smart pitcher, said catcher Buster Posey, the 2012 NL MVP, who drove in a run. He knows when not to give in.The first hit Peavy allowed was by Bryce Harper in the fifth, a bouncing single off the glove of diving first baseman Belt. As Harper ran through the bag, he yelled, Lets go! But any notion of a rally was quickly silenced when Peavy got Ramos to ground into a first-pitch, 4-6-3 double play, followed by Asdrubal Cabreras inning-ending foul pop.Peavy was lifted with two runners aboard in the sixth, and Javier Lopez loaded the bases with a walk. Bochy turned to Strickland, who, calm as a 10-year veteran, took care of Desmond a€” 8 for 12 with a grand slam and 17 RBIs with the bases full this season a€” on four fastballs, the slowest at 98 mph.He just stepped into as big a fire as you can step into, Pence said about Strickland, and he came up huge.But in the seventh, Strickland served up a pair of 97 mph fastballs that were turned into homers, one by Harper into the third deck, the other by Cabrera, making it 3-2.Bochy knew his relievers were rested after Madison Bumgarners four-hit shutout in the wild-card victory at Pittsburgh on Wednesday a€” a day the Nationals played an intrasquad scrimmage to fight rust.Jeremy Affeldt got the last out in the seventh. Sergio Romo struck out Desmond and got Harper on a grounder to end a threat in the eighth. And Santiago Casilla pitched a perfect ninth for the save.These guys, they have been through it. They have a calmness about them, Bochy said about his bunch. When you have your back as many times against the wall as you can in the post-season, that experience is invaluable.UP NEXTRHP Hudson is 18-5 with a 2.35 ERA in his career against Washington. Only RF Jayson Werth has a good track record: .386, four homers, 12 RBIs. Pence is 8 for 20 with two homers against Zimmermann.

    • ready to leave Crandon Park before mo
      WASHINGTON -- With Washington off to a 2-5 start, coach Adam Oates made some changes before the Capitals game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. Martin Erat wasted little time in making the adjustments pay off. The right wing, moved from the fourth line to the second, assisted on three Washington goals and Braden Holtby made 37 saves in the Capitals 4-1 win. Erat helped out on goals by new linemates Troy Brouwer and Brooks Laich, as well as on a power-play tally by Alex Ovechkin. "He was flying tonight," Ovechkin said of Erat. "He was the best player on the ice for us tonight. He shows who he is." Joel Ward opened the scoring with a power-play goal for the Capitals, who snapped a two-game skid and finished their five-game homestand 2-3. Coming off a 2-0 shutout Thursday against the Rangers, Oates dropped Mikhail Grabovski from the second line to the third and Eric Fehr from the third line to a part-time role on the fourth. Laich centred the second line, with Erat moving onto that group. "You know what, Martys a good hockey player, has been in this league," Oates said of Erat, a veteran who was acquired last year from Nashville but began the season on the fourth line and was scoreless coming in. "We lost a couple in a row, we had to make some changes, and he stepped in there and played great for us." Erat began play with 53 points in 57 regular-season games against Columbus, his highest point total against any team, and continued to punish the Blue Jackets. Afterward, he preferred to discuss the win rather than his increased ice time and performance. "Its nice to have a good game, but in the end its all about the wins, and we got the win and that is the bottom line," he said. Artem Anisimov spoiled Holtbys shutout at 15:05 of the third. "You can see how we play when he is on fire," Ovechkin said of Holtby. "We have a lot of confidence, especially when he makes a big save and we can see he feels the puck." Sergei Bobrovsky had 35 saves for the Blue Jackets, who have lost four straight. "We unraveled," Columbus coach Todd Richards said. "I think even after those first two goals, we started to go after them, but we werent good enough. We got what we deserved. I think the chances were there." Washington went up 1-0 early in the second period thanks to its top-ranked power play. With the Blue Jackets Brandon Dubinsky off for tripping, Marcus Johansson made a nice pass in front to Ward, who one-timed it past Bobrovsky for his second goal of the year. Columbus peppered Holtby for several minutes to no avail. Then Washingtons Steve Olesky came down the right side and made a nice delaying move to get his shot off. Bobrovsky made the stop, but Laich shovelled the rebound home to make it 2-0 at the 7:43. Washington added some insurance in the third when Erat stole a pass in the Columbus zone and fed Brouwer in front. Bobrovsky made a point-blank save, but Brouwer got the rebound, moved to his right and put the puck past the fallen goaltender at 4:20. "They got that third (goal) and it just cracked us, I guess," Blue Jackets RJ Umberger said. "We turned the puck over. They capitalized on their chances tonight and we didnt." Just over two minutes later, with Washington on a power play, Ovechkin beat Bobrovsky with a one-timer from his familiar spot in the left circle for his seventh goal of the season. "As far as the third period, were letting each other down as far as our play in front of our goalie," Richards said. "Disappointing the way the game ended." The Capitals controlled play for much of a scoreless first period, when Bobrovsky made 14 saves. Columbus had an excellent chance when Ryan Johansen picked up a loose puck in the Washington zone midway through the period. He skated in alone on Holtby, but his shot hit the right post.

"Its nice to see all the players coming back in the locker room, and Im like, Ill see you later," she said. Sharapova started early but didnt start well. She won only five points in the first four games before settling down to reach the quarterfinals at the Sony Open by beating Kirsten Flipkens 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. The worlds top-ranked players had an easier time. Serena Williams eliminated fellow American CoCo Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-1. Rafael Nadal received a warning for slow play and still won in 59 minutes against Denis Istomin, 6-1, 6-0. Venus Williams lost her serve eight times and was beaten by No. 10 Dominika Cibulkova 6-1, 5-7, 6-3. Sharapova, meanwhile, endured her second successive ragged three-setter and found herself trailing 4-0 after only 15 minutes. "I usually like playing the first match, but I didnt start off the way I wanted to," she said. "Nothing was working." Seeded No. 4, Sharapova seemed thrown off by the lack of pace from Flipkens, a tour veteran who hits floating backhands and sometimes slices her forehand as well. "Shes a different type of opponent," Sharapova said. "There are not too many girls that hit a slice backhand 90 per cent of the time in the rallies. But I know what to expect from her game. It shouldnt be that much of a surprise." Sharapova finished with 36 unforced errors and only 13 winners. She also double-faulted 10 times. But she won — and was ready to leave Crandon Park before most matches had even begun. With the rest of the day free, what was on the schedule for one of the worlds most celebrated athletes? "Not much, actually," Sharapova said. "I like to have my afternoon tea around 5. Its like a Russian tradition. Ill see my dog, spend some time with him, then get treaatment, dinner, and then the day is over.dddddddddddd" At the top of her to-do list for the rest of the week is winning her first Key Biscayne title. Sharapova has been the runner-up five times, including each of the past three years, but she downplays any frustration regarding her many near-misses. "Of course you want to be able to hold the winners trophy," she said. "But you also remember the matches that you got through to get in the position to get to the final stage. Its not like I didnt have my opportunities in those finals; I just didnt take them. Thats why you come back and hope for another chance." Williams seems to be gaining momentum as the tournament unfolds, as usual. She overcame sloppy patches in her first two matches and committed only one unforced error in the second set against Vandeweghe. But Williams was impressed with the 22-year-old American, and told her so when they met at the net after the match. "She said, Listen, you played so well. Weve got to play doubles. Wed do so well," Vandeweghe said. Williams next plays No. 5-seeded Angelique Kerber, who beat Ekaterina Makarova 6-4, 1-6, 6-3. No. 8 Petra Kvitova rallied past No. 12 Ana Ivanovic, who double-faulted nine times in the final two sets and lost 3-6, 6-0, 6-0. In mens third-round play, No. 10 seed John Isner, the only American to reach the mens third round, hit 17 aces and beat Nicolas Almagro 7-5, 6-3. No. 22-seeded Alexandr Dolgopolov rallied from a break down in the final set to beat Dusan Lajovic 3-6, 6-0, 7-6 (5). Dolgopolov has gone 6-1 this month despite his worries about unrest in his native Ukraine, where his mother and other relatives still live. "For me it was important it has calmed down and no people are dying," said Dolgopolov, who was born in Kyiv. "But theres a little bit of chaos still going on, and no one knows who is the ruling party and who is controlling the country. Its a mess."
