FLORHAM PARK, N. New Orleans Pelicans Pro Shop .J. -- C.J. Spiller has one touchdown this season -- and it came against his current team.The speedy running back caught a pass from Russell Wilson while he was with the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4 and took it 8 yards for a score to help beat the New York Jets 27-17 .Just over a month later, Spiller is sharing a locker room with Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets, and theyve been sure to remind him of it.Ive been getting a lot of grief, Spiller said with a smile after his first practice with New York on Thursday. Fitzpatrick, he gave me grief and he said the least I can be is a plus-one now. So, I have to score, then score another one just to make up for that touchdown a couple of weeks ago.Spiller started the season with New Orleans, which released him on Sept. 13. He was signed by Seattle on Sept. 28 , and made his Seahawks debut against the Jets on Oct. 2.But he played in only two games with Seattle, gaining 9 yards on three carries and catching five passes for 43 yards and that lone TD. The Seahawks cut him last Wednesday and the Jets, who had worked him out earlier this season, signed him Thursday .Its been a crazy ride getting here, Spiller said.Spiller is also reunited with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, who coached him during his best seasons in Buffalo. In 2012, Spiller ran for a career-high 1,244 yards and six touchdowns with the Bills, and also set a personal best with 43 receptions for 459 yards and two TDs. During that season, Spiller had TD runs of 56 and 49 yards in the opener against the Jets, and caught a 66-yard TD pass -- from Fitzpatrick -- in the season finale.I think he recalled a lot in the one day weve had him, Gailey said. I think he recalled a good bit of how we were talking, the verbiage that we use. So it makes him viable to be able to play quicker. Now whether or not thats this week, or not, I dont know.For now, the Jets envision him as the No. 3 running back who could potentially contribute as a returner.Hes a very versatile guy, Gailey said. He can run the ball, he can catch the ball out of the backfield, and he did all those kind of things for us. Well have to wait and see how it fits all together. But hes got ability. Obviously hes got ability or else he wouldnt be here.The 29-year-old Spiller, a 2010 first-round pick out of Clemson, has rushed for 3,442 yards and 12 touchdowns, and caught 197 passes for 1,477 yards and nine TDs in seven seasons. But he has never been able to live up to or duplicate the numbers he put up four seasons ago.He broke his collarbone in 2014 and played in just nine games before signing a four-year, $18 million contract with the Saints the following offseason. Spiller played in 13 games with New Orleans, and a highlight was his 80-yard touchdown reception -- Drew Brees 400th career TD pass -- in a Week 4 overtime win against Dallas. But Spillers role diminished and he was passed on the depth chart, to the point he was inactive for this years opener and then released a few days later.There are a lot of variables, Spiller said. Going to New Orleans and having an injury, and trying to fight my way back and trying to play through that, and this year, they decided to go in a different direction.His stay in Seattle was short, and the one-time Pro Bowl selection was looking for his third team in a matter of weeks.I know Im a great player, he said. I know I can play in this league. My confidence is not down, so Im excited about the opportunity that I have here.Spiller joins a backfield that already includes Matt Forte and Bilal Powell, but thinks he can be a valuable addition to the Jets running game despite his subpar last few seasons.Its just believing in yourself when nobody else does, he said. My inner circle, they believe in me. My family believes in me. Most important, my daughter believes in me. Everybody else, thats just noise that I ignore and dont worry about what people put on their blogs or what people say on their newscasts or whatever. I block all that stuff out and prepare the best way I can to be the best player I can.Which means Spiller expects to play at a high level, the same type of playmaker who made the Pro Bowl in 2012.I really do, he said. The only thing you can really do is just go out there and work. I think my man Marshawn (Lynch) said it best: `Talk will never solve anything. Its just all about going out there and being about that action, boss.---AP NFL website: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Baron Davis Jersey .

LANDOVER, Md. Air Force 1 Outlet . -- Discussing Dak Prescott after the rookie quarterbacks first NFL victory, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones managed to throw in references to folks such as Troy Aikman, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger -- QBs with nine Super Bowl victories combined.Not bad company for a guy who was a fourth-round draft pick and is only playing because Tony Romo is out with an injured back.Prescott ran for a 6-yard TD , went 22 for 30 for 292 yards, and showed a veterans poise in the pocket, helping the Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins 27-23 on Sunday as he stayed turnover-free as a pro so far.He exudes confidence, Jones said about Prescott. Hes got a great supporting cast, but hes using it.Dallas (1-1) won for only the second time in its past 16 games without Romo -- and both of those victories came at Washington (0-2).Alfred Morris scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 4-yard run with under five minutes left against his former club, taking advantage after Washingtons Kirk Cousins threw an end-zone interception.Morris was drafted by Washington in 2012 and played his first four seasons there. But his role was reduced last year and he was allowed to leave as a free agent. His first TD in a Cowboys uniform capped an 80-yard drive that started when Barry Church picked off a pass from Cousins intended for Pierre Garcon.This is a quarterback-driven league, Cousins said. I need to play at a high level, week in and week out.Through two games, he has three interceptions and only one TD pass , an 11-yarder to Jamison Crowder in the third quarter that gave Washington its first lead, 17-13.But Cousins and the defending NFC East champion Redskins will rue the second-half chances they wasted. They got the ball inside Dallas 40 on consecutive possessions -- once because of a failed onside kick, once because cornerback Josh Norman caused one of the two fumbles by Dallas rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott -- but settled for a field goal each time.Still, Washington led 23-20 and appeared on its way to adding to the margin after Cousins began a drive by completing a 57-yard pass to rookie Josh Doctson. But on third-and-goal at the 6 with 10 1/2 minutes left, Cousins put the ball right in Churchs gut.Garcon stomped his foot coming off the field. Redskins right tackle Morgan Moses threw his helmet on the sideline.HE SAID ITEverybody thinks were in the morgue or something. Were not dead, by no means. -- Norman on Washingtons 0-2 start.NORMANS ASSIGNMENTOne big question entering the game was whether Norman would be assigned to cover Cowboys WR Dez Bryant no matter where the receiver lined up -- or stick to one side of the field, as the $75 million defensive back primarily did in Week 1, when he stayed on the left side regardless of where Steelers WR Antonio Brown was. The answer: Norman mainly remained on the left side of Washingtons defense, often leaving CB Bashaud Breeland on Bryant, early on, but eventually started to travel to where Bryant was.DEZ INVOLVEDAfter getting only one catch for 8 yards in Week 1, Bryant had seven catches for 102 yards Sunday.MORE STATSElliott finished with 83 yards on 21 carries, including a 1-yard TD run. ... Morris ran five times for a total of 7 yards. ... Redskins RB Matt Jones gained 61 yards on 13 carries with a 14-yard scoring run. ... Cousins went 28 for 46 for 364 yards.BAD MISSOn third-and-7 from Dallas 37 on Washingtons opening possession, Cousins had Crowder wide open and behind the defense for what should have been an easy-as-can-be TD. But Cousins overthrew the second-year receiver, and that bad miss ended the drive, because coach Jay Gruden chose to punt.INJURIESRedskins: NT Kedric Golston injured his right hamstring on the first play from scrimmage, eventually was driven toward the locker room on a cart and did not return.

Newcastles A-League injury curse has struck again with star striker Aleksandr Kokko to undergo surgery on a fractured jaw on Monday.The Finnish centre-forward suffered the injury in the 88th minute of Sundays 1-1 F3 Derby draw with Central Coast after a head clash in the penalty area with Josh Bingham, who was attempting to put the ball out for a corner kick.Kokko fell to the ground clutching his face and was spitting blood before he was sent for scans post-match, which confirmed the extent of the damage.Kokko had only been on the field for approximately 10 minutes and showed a couple of neat touches as the Jets rallied for a late winner against the Mariners, who were down to 10 men.No timeline has been set but its expected the 29-year-old wont return for at least a few weeks.Its another disappointing setback for Kokko, who haas struggled to stay on the park since succumbing to injury on his Jets debut earlier this season. Air Force 1 2020. He has made only two starts in seven rounds and is yet to break his scoring duck, with Newcastles only win to date a shock 4-0 result over Brisbane Roar back in round two.Newcastle are currently without skipper Nigel Boogaard (knee), Daniel Mullen (knee) and Lachlan Jackson (ankle), while goalkeeper Ben Kennedy (Achilles) and Daniel Alessi (knee) have been ruled out for the season.Coach Mark Jones already has two injury-replacement players on the books in rookie utility Johnny Koutroumbis and veteran defender Iain Fyfe and he may be forced to sign a third if Kokko is out for the longer term.

The seven-time British champion has been absent from the national side for the last three years but, after positive talks with manager Alun Rossiter and members of the sports top brass, he is now back in contention.Great Britain have been seeded directly into the 2016 World Cup final, which takes place on July 30 at Nicholls home track, the new National Speedway Stadium in Manchester. Nicholls said: Its no secret that in the past I was a little disillusioned with the way things were going, and my own personal issues were well documented at the time.Its not that I didnt want to ride for Great Britain, and I guess it was a slightly political stance, but I didnt agree with the way things were being done.I feel that having Buster (Chapman) in charge as BSPA chairman is a very constructive move. Hes a very strong character and also a stubborn person, but he will listen, and I truly believe hes got the interests of the sport at heart.Im also pleased to see Colin Pratt back more involved again on the management committee. Ive always got on very well with Colin and have a lot of respect for him, and its those things which have made the deecision easier. Chris Webber Jersey. Scott knows this isnt a guarantee of selection for the team. Ill be monitoring everyones form closely before making that decision. GB manager Alun Rossiter on Scott Nicholls For me its not just about trying to achieve a gold medal right now... its also about the future. Im pleased with what theyre trying to do and the people who they have on board, and I feel the future looks much more positive.Rossiter said: Whats happened in the past really doesnt interest me too much - my priority is to have the strongest possible squad to choose from for the World Cup final, which is a massive event for us.Clearly having Scott in the frame gives us another quality option, and there wont be anyone else with more experience of the new circuit by the time the meeting comes around.Scott knows this isnt a guarantee of selection for the team - were a long way away from the event, and Ill be monitoring everyones form closely before making that decision.But its definitely a boost for us and it will also keep all of the other boys on their toes with some good competition for places.

VIENNA -- Andy Murray closed in on the No. Air Force 1 Basse Noir . 1 ranking by winning his third straight ATP title at the Erste Bank Open on Sunday.The Scot can overtake Novak Djokovic atop the ATP rankings next week if he wins the Paris Masters and the Serb doesnt reach the final.I get a step closer with every win but its still a long way from here, Murray said. From two to one seems a small jump in a way but its the hardest one to make. To go from 100 to 50 is more spots but is a lot easier.In Sundays final, Murray defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 7-6 (6) for his personal-best seventh title of the season, and 42nd overall. Djokovic has also won seven events this year.I was thinking more about how you are going to win the match rather than what it would mean if you did win it. But obviously its nice to win my seventh tournament, Murray said. A lot of them have come in the last few months. After the Australian Open I struggled a little bit for a couple of months but the last few months have been very good.Murray extended his unbeaten streak to 15 matches after also winning in Beijing and Shanghai.I think I played my best tennis of the tournament today. Thats pleasing, obviously, as you want to improve as an event goes on, he said.The 15th-ranked Tsonga, who was the 2011 champion, appeared in his first final of the season, which has been marred by adductor and left knee injuries.It was a positive week for me. It was very good to be in the final, Tsonga said. I played good tennis. It was nice to play five matches in a row. It hasnt happened many times these last couple of months.Murray advanced to the final after defending champion David Ferrer pulled out with a left leg injury, while Tsonga saved a match point in his 2 1/2-hour semifinal against Ivo Karlovic on Saturday.Murray, who also won in Vienna on his only previous visit in 2014, dominated Sundays final from the start. He raced into a 3-0 lead by taking 14 of the first 19 points of the match.He avoided break points in his games, and missed a set point on the Frenchmans serve at 5-2 but clinched the opening set the next game with his second ace.Murray conceded just two points on his way to a 2-0 lead in the second set but started to struggle with his first serve as his percentage dropped to 18 halfway through the second set.He hit a forehand long on the only break point for Tsonga to help the Frenchman level at 4-4.Murray missed his first match point in the tiebreaker as he netted a forehand return, but closed out the win on his second chance with an ace.

DALLAS -- After Dallas scored three goals in the first period, it was on Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen to preserve the win. Balenciaga Triple S Black Sale .Patrick Eaves capped Dallas three-goal first and the Stars held off the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 Thursday night. Johnny Oduya and Brett Ritchie also scored in the first for Dallas.Colorado outshot Dallas 30-16 in the last 40 minutes, but Lehtonen camp up big while getting 28 of his 34 saves.You need a game once in a while where your goalie makes some big saves to give you a win, Stars center Jason Spezza said, and Kari did that tonight.The last 40 minutes were largely a battle between Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon and Lehtonen.MacKinnon scored a short-handed goal and added an assist on Mikhail Grigorenkos third-period goal.Lehtonen stopped MacKinnon on a breakaway midway through the second period and again on a rebound with 10 minutes left in the game.I didnt love (MacKinnons) first period, just like the rest of our team, Colorado coach Jared Bednar said, but he came hard in the last two periods. He was all around the net, he was hanging onto pucks and it wasnt fancy plays.MacKinnon has scored only three goals this season.It was a tough start to the year, he said. Im just trying to stay positive. Ive got to be better.MacKinnon won 11 of 19 faceoffs in the first two periods. He was 5 for 12 in the third after Stars coach Lindy Ruff matched Cody Eakin, returning for his first game this season, with MacKinnon in the faceoff circle.MacKinnon was eating up (Radek) Faksa, Ruff said, so I looked to (Eakin) to kind of dig in and win a couple. I thought all night he did a good job.Eakin won 15 of 23 faceoffs.Semyon Varlamov stopped 19 shots and snapped an 11-game winning streak against the Stars.Oduya scored his first goal since last Dec. 17 on a slap shot from the left point that went in off Colorado defenseman Tyson Barries left knee at 8:15.I just close my eyes and shoot, Oduya said. I told Patty (Eaves) that Im not like him, putting it top shelf every time. For me, its kind of shoot at the net and see what happens, and sometimes it goes in.Barely two minutes later, Ritchie scored from the slot on the power play after taking a pass from Devin Shore low in the left faceoff circle.Eaves power-play goal from the right of the net followed rapid-fire passes from Spezza behind the net and Tyler Seguin high in the slot.I thought we played 20 minutes, Ruff said. Maybe a little more than that, until the short-handed goal. Im frustrated with the short-handed goals weve been giving up, and Im sick of it.Dallas has allowed four shorthanded goals this season.MacKinnons goal with 7:54 left in the second came after he took Andreas Martinsens pass from the right corner just to the right of the net and beat Lehtonen. Two minutes earlier, Lehtonen had stopped MacKinnon on a breakaway at the endThe Avalanche pulled within a goal at 1:51 of the third when Grigorenko redirected MacKinnons shot from the right point into the right side of the net.Game notes A preseason knee injury had sidelined Eakin almost two months. ...

Dont blame Jimmie Johnson if he feels confident about his chances advancing from the semifinal Round of 8 to one of the four drivers eligible for the championship at Homestead. Curry 3 Shoes Wholesale . He has earned any swagger he takes into this weekend at Martinsville.Johnson has 18 career victories at the three tracks in the semifinal round -- eight at Martinsville, six at Texas and four at Phoenix. His average finish at those tracks: 7.5, 8.3 and 7.8. Any conversation about Johnson winning his seventh Cup championship can start in earnest now as he should have that chance in less than four weeks.While Kevin Harvick does have eight career wins at Phoenix and Denny Hamlin has five at Martinsville, neither driver can boast of such a record across the three tracks. Hamlin, Kyle Busch and Kurt Busch are the only drivers other than Johnson who have won a Cup race at each track in the round.Winning will be big because a driver with one bad race likely wont advance on points when field is cut from eight to four; only one spot is guaranteed by points if the three races are won by three Chase drivers.Heres the outlook for the drivers, listed by their current NASCAR seeding, going into the semifinal round:1. Joey LoganoTeam Penske No. 22 FordSecond-round wins: OneSecond-round points: 3,089 (third)Why he will advance: His six Chase wins in the last three seasons is tied with Harvick for the most since the elimination-style format started in 2014. He carries the momentum from the win at Talladega. Oh, and he hasnt made anyone mad in the Chase this year.Why he wont: These three tracks do not rank among his top eight Sprint Cup tracks and the only one where he has a win is Texas. While third at Texas earlier this year, he was 11th at Martinsville and 18th at Phoenix.2. Jimmie JohnsonHendrick Motorsports No. 48 ChevroletSecond-round wins: OneSecond-round points: 3,100 (first)Why he will advance: Didnt you read the introduction? Hes won 18 times at the three tracks in this round. The only reason hes never had a chance at Homestead in this format is because he never made it to this round.Why he wont: Only twice this year has he had three-race stretches of top-10 finishes -- once early in the year and then with a four-race stretch in the Chase prior to Talladega. If the Toyotas have another level to bring to the track the way Johnson went from pre-August to now, then hes in trouble.3. Kevin HarvickStewart-Haas Racing No. 4 ChevroletSecond-round wins: OneSecond-round points: 3,082 (sixth)Why he will advance: His four wins this year ties him with Kyle Busch for the most among the remaining drivers in the Chase. One of those wins came at Phoenix, where he has won five of the last six races, and he did it in spectacular fashion by beating Edwards by inches. He has eight career wins at Phoenix and one at Martinsville.Why he wont: Inconsistency could end up biting this team in the semifinal round. In the Chase, he has three top-10 finishes and three finishes of 20th or worse. He cant rely on just winning in the clutch every round -- the odds say hes due for a round where he wont win.4. Matt KensethJoe Gibbs Racing No. 20 ToyotaSecond-round wins: NoneSecond-round points: 3,088 (fourth)Why he will advance: He led 116 laps at the last intermediate track and 105 laps at the last flat 1-mile track. That bodes well for the races at Texas and Phoenix. Of all the Toyotas, he finished the last round with the most points.Why he wont:?Logano will take him out this year to repay for last year. Just kidding. The biggest question for Kenseth is whether he can win in the clutch in a three-race stretch at tracks where he has just a combined three wins and didnt record a top-5 this year.5. Carl EdwardsJoe Gibbs Racing No. 19 ToyotaSecond-round wins: NoneSecond-round points: 3,082 (seventh)Why he will advance: Some of his best non-winning races this year came in races at tracks in the semifinal rounds. He led 65 laps on his way to finishing second at Phoenix and 124 laps on his way to finishing seventh at Texas. Edwards and crew chief Dave Rogers have considerable Chase experience, and dont discount that when things get tough. Plus, what are the odds of a rainstorm keeping him from advancing as it did last year at Phoenix?Why he wont: He has recorded just one top-5 finish in his last 14 races. That inconsistency wont get it done in this round.6. Denny HamlinJoe Gibbs Racing No. 11 ToyotaSecond-round wins: NoneSecond-round points: 3,078 (eighth)Why he will advance: He has won five times at Martinsville, including in March 2015, so he has a chance of a win or a great finish to open the round and build his confidence. After barely getting out of the quarterfinal round -- he needed a tiebreaker to advance --Hamlin and his rejuvenated team have an energized outlook.Why he wont: Hamlin isnt exactly Mr. November as he seems to be the victim of mechanical gremlins or misfortune every year. He might have a false sense of confidence even at Martinsville -- he hasnt won the October race at Martinsville since 2009.7. Kurt BuschStewart-Haas Racing No. 41 ChevroletSecond-round wins: NoneSecond-round points: 3,099 (second)Why he will advance: He has been the epitome of consistently doing what it takes to advance. He hasnt finished worse than 15th in the Chase, and hes going to three tracks where he finished no worse than 13th earlier this year. Plus hes a Cubs fan and theres something in the air called destiny.Why he wont: He has been the epitome of consistently doing what it takes to advance. In this round, a driver has to do more. Hes going to three tracks where he finished no better than sixth earlier this year. Plus hes a Cubs fan and theres something in the air called being cursed.8. Kyle BuschJoe Gibbs Racing No. 18 ToyotaSecond-round wins: NoneSecond-round points: 3,084 (fifth)Why he will advance: He won at Martinsville and Texas earlier this year and led 461 laps in the races at Martinsville, Texas and Phoenix. While he hasnt won a race since the Brickyard, he had a second, third, fifth and sixth in the four races leading into Talladega. Busch and Johnson appear as close to a lock to advance more than anyone else in this round.Why he wont: Parts and pieces can break. Tires can blow. The team can beat itself.

Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott scored his fourth rushing TD of the season, to get the Cowboys off the mark The Cowboys added a field goal early in the second quarter, and it wasnt until the end of the half that the Eagles began their fight back.

Nikita Miller, the Jamaica captain, has said he was more focused on securing victory for his side rather than gaining a record 10-wicket innings haul against Trinidad & Tobago in the recently concluded fourth round of the WICB Regional Four-Day Tournament. Fake Hurricanes Jerseys .Millers figures of 9 for 41 in T&Ts second innings were the best in West Indies domestic history. He became only the sixth bowler to claim nine in an innings in recorded West Indies first-class statistics since 1966. My reaction was quite normal and wasnt overly excited to be honest, Miller told ESPNcricinfo. I didnt know at the time it was the best, since I knew Bishoo had taken nine wickets a couple of seasons ago, so I was just glad it was accomplished in a winning team effort.Miller took the first nine wickets of T&Ts innings, before the legspinner Damion Jacobs had Roshon Primus lbw to deny him the honour of being the first West Indian to take all ten in an innings. Miller says the feat wasnt on his mind, in the heat of the moment.Leaving the field some fans asked me why I didnt push to get all 10, but really as captain I was mainly focused on getting Trinidad all out, he said. There was many points at other end when the batsmen were scoring freely, so even while bowling and I didnt even celebrate the ninth wicket, I was thinking about bowling options, field placements for next bowler and over.During West Indies decline over the last 20 years or so, there has been a long-standing debate over the standard of domestic cricket in the Caribbean. The pitches have tended not to help the fast bowlers, which has meant spinners such as Miller have always among the leading wicket-takers. Some believe the success of spinners reflects how poorly Caribbean batsmen have tended to play slow bowling.In the case of Miller, who has an outstanding first-class record - 428 wickets in 84 matches at an astounding average of 16.64 - and was a major player in Jamaica winning six first-class titles between 2007 and 2014, those aforementioned reasons have probably played a part in the last three West Indies chairmen of selectors - Clyde Butts, Clive Lloyd and Courtney Browne - ignoring him for Test cricket.If called up to do a job [by West Indies], will do to best of ability - but my mind is not really on it, Miller said. The one thing Id say about criticism of whether I could replicate my domestic performances at Test level, and can only speak for myself - I have played in A team cricket in 2013 versus India and Sri Lanka, playing against guys like [Virender] Sehwag, [Gautam] Gambhir, [Cheteshwar] Pujara, Yuvraj [Singh] and got five-wicket hauls and was the leading West Indies A wicket-taker.Yes, the standard (of West Indies domestic cricket) could improve to another level, but if it was I believe Id still do well, because if youre good, you perform despite the standard.

Bouchard needed 62 minutes to complete the victory and advance to the third round of a Grand Slam event for the first time in her career. The match was moved to Centre Court from an outside court on short notice after second-seeded Victoria Azarenka withdrew with an injury. "We only heard about the court change 15 minutes before the match," said Bouchard. "I was actually quite excited. It was crazy to play in front of a big crowd like this. Im really happy. I was focusing on returns and neutralizing her first serve and I think I did that very well." In mens second-round play, 20th-ranked Russian Mikhail Youzhny defeated Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil 6-3, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (7), 3-6, 6-4 in a match that took almost four hours. Already leading 5-3 in the first set, Bouchard took 12 of 13 points to close that set and go up a break in the second. The 2012 Wimbledon junior champ sealed the victory when she broke Ivanovics serve on the second match point. "I think any day I can beat anyone. Its just about playing the way I know I can play," Bouchard said. "Today I was able to stay with her and take my chances when I could. Anything can happen in a match. "I just tried to work on a few things -- trying to be aggressive during the point, neutralize her serve. She served well today, so that was a bit tough for me. I tried to play my game." In eight previous Wimbledon appearances, Ivanovic -- a former world No. 1 -- had failed to reach the third round only once. Bouchard, from Montreal, currently holds the No. 66 position in the world rankings. Ivanovic admitted she was outplayed. "Definitely (Bouchard) played a very good match today," Ivanovic said. "It was the first time I actually saw her play, so it was obviously a little bit tough to get used to. "She was tracking the ball really well, serving well. I thought maybe the end of the match she would get tight, but she was really strong the whole wway through. Hurricanes Jerseys China. "She has a very bright future. She has a very strong game for such a young girl." Bouchard finished with 14 winners and 11 unforced errors against the 2008 French Open champion. "Im happy to be playing well again," she said. "After winning the juniors, Wimbledon feels like my second home." Bouchards next opponent will be Spains Carla Suarez Navarro, who beat Croatias Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 1-6, 6-3, 6-3. Bouchard, 19, improved to 21-14 on the season with the victory. She has posted some other big wins this year, including a third-round victory over U.S. Open winner Samantha Stosur last April at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, S.C. Pospisil was up 4-2 in the fifth set and looked like he might join Bouchard in the third round, but the experienced Youzhny won the next four games to advance. The momentum shift came in the eighth game, when Youzhny converted triple-break point to tie the set at 4-4. "It was a tough loss, any loss in a Grand Slam is a tough loss," Pospisil said. "Being up a break in the fifth set, which happened to me in the last two Grand Slams. "Its tough to close it out, especially if youre playing a top-20 guy whos so experienced. Hes ranked where he is because of these kind of wins, hes really good at finding ways to win." Pospisils serve had been his strength prior to that game. He finished the match with 26 aces. "I was definitely trying to do the same things but the big thing that made the difference was the lack of first serves when I was up a break in the fifth," Pospisil said. "Its tough, because theyre going to raise their game when theyre down a break in the fifth. Hes obviously extremely tough and I cant give him two games with mostly second serves." Later Wednesday, sixth-seeded Daniel Nestor of Toronto and Robert Lindstedt of Sweden defeated Mikhail Elgin of Russia and Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 7-6 (6), 6-3, 6-7 (9), 7-6 in their opening mens doubles match. Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., and Jesse Levine of Ottawa won their first-round matches earlier this week. ' ' '
