BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Before taking a few days off during the Bills bye week, coach Rex Ryan had a few frustrations to get off his chest regarding the Seahawks, and one of their fans who taunted Buffalo assistant Kathryn Smith.Ryan rallied to the defense of Smith, who was the target of sexist comments from the stands. And he also took a verbal jab at Seahawks coach Pete Carroll during a telephone conference call with reporters on Tuesday.Ryan was particularly upset upon learning what happened to Smith, the NFLs first full-time female assistant during Buffalos 31-25 loss on Monday night .Rochesters WROC-TV filmed a male fan yelling, Waitress! Waitress. Can I have a Pepsi, please, at Smith as she walked along the sideline.Well, I think thats ridiculous, said Ryan, who promoted Smith to be Buffalos special teams quality control coach in January.I think thats really classless, Ryan said, noting hes accustomed to being taunted.Now look, I get ripped all the time and thats cool. Im free game, he said. Ive been called everything known to man, and thats OK. Im the opposing head coach.

The video shows a woman next the fan slapping the man on his arm when he yelled Waitress! a third time.Ryan also took issue with Carroll.He responded sarcastically when informed Carroll was unhappy the Bills coach called Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman an ass.On Tuesday morning, Carroll told Seattles ESPN-Radio that Ryan should focus on coaching his own team.Ryan said he does coach his team, and then joked about forgetting to check with Carroll first about what his appropriate response shouldve been regarding Sherman.Sherman caused several stirs during a thrilling back-and-forth game but marred by officiating errors .Sherman was penalized for offside when he dived and collided with kicker Dan Carpenter during a field-goal attempt in the final seconds of the first half.NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino said referee Walt Anderson annd his crew made a mistake by noting Sherman should have been penalized for roughing the kicker.

The ruling proved costly because an ensuing delay of game penalty against Buffalo eventually led to Carpenter missing a 54-attempt wide right.Blandino also ruled Andersons crew should not have flagged the Bills for delay of game.In the second half, Sherman made a play near the Bills sidelined and then exchanged words and attempted to stare down Ryan.I had some words, Ryan said following the game.

Its behind us.The Bills (4-5) have lost three straight and get an extra week to rest up before playing at Cincinnati on Nov. 20.One player who wont be available is center Eric Wood, who will miss the rest of the season after breaking his right leg against Seattle.Thats really, really a big blow to our football team, Ryan said, referring to the eighth-year player and team leader.The Bills will have to lean on either Ryan Groy, who took over for Wood on Monday, or Patrick Lewis, who has yet to play this season. Buffalo claimed Lewis off of waivers after he was cut by Seattle in August.On the bright side, the Bills top receiving threat, Sammy Watkins , is eligible to begin practicing once the team returns to the field on Monday. Watkins was placed on injured reserve three weeks into the season when he aggravated an injury to his surgically repaired left foot.Though he can begin practicing next week, Watkins is not eligible to be activated until after Buffalo plays Cincinnati.Ryan said hes hopeful Watkins will be able to play, but said the player has not yet been cleared by the medical staff.---AP Sports Writer Tim Booth in Seattle contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

WASHINGTON -- Neither the Miami Heat nor the Washington Wizards have forged a consistent winning path this season. Disocunt Football Jerseys . At least the Southeast Division foes enter their first meeting of the season coming off rare victories.Miami (3-8) ended a six-game losing streak Thursday with a 96-73 rout over the Milwaukee Bucks. Hassan Whiteside blocked seven shots -- the most in the NBA this season -- and Dion Waiters scored 23 points. The losing streak was the Heats longest since 2008.Washington (3-8) nearly had its own blowout, but still won comfortably over New York. John Wall had 23 points and 11 assists in their 119-112 victory as the Wizards drained 15 of 25 3-pointers. The point guard sank all three of his deep attempts in the third quarter as Washington turned a 53-43 halftime lead into a 27-point cushion.Otto Porter scored 21 points and Bradley Beal had 18 points in his return after missing the previous three games with a hamstring injury. One of those missed game included a loss to a 1-win and short-handed Philadelphia 76ers team Wednesday night.We were hungry for a win, Beal said. We knew this was a tough team with a bunch of scorers. Our biggest thing was to make sure that we were defending and just control what we control and get back to having fun, get back to playing for one another and do whatever it takes to win. We did a great job of keeping up that pressure.They needed that large margin because New York scored 47 points in the fourth quarter, but never could pull closer than seven points.The late fade forced coached Scott Brooks to put his starters back into the game, but didnt damper his enthusiasm for his teams effort and the much needed win.That is the message I have been talking about, Brooks said. We have to play for 48 minutes but I thought we played a great basketball game coming back from a tough loss last night. Guys really competed. We moved the ball. Having Brad out there, we are a different team for the obvious reasons.Having an interior force like Whiteside gives the Heat a different component than most teams.Anytime I see a team that likes to score in the paint, my eyes light up, said Whiteside, who also had 12 points and 17 rebounds.Miamis bench helped fuel the win which came despite trailing 20-6. James Johnson and Tyler Johnson combined for 17 points, 18 rebounds and eight assists.Thats what were supposed to do, James Johnson told the Miami Herald. Thats what the reserves are for -- bring energy, sustain the lead or come back from any deficit. I think we did our job today.Washingtons bench play has been a major source of the early-season struggles, though Marcus Thornton scored 13 points against the Knicks. China Jerseys Wholesale . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. China Jerseys . Louis Cardinals. Victorino is batting sixth and playing right field after missing two games because of back tightness. http://www.authenticchinacheapnfljerseys.com/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens understand just how embarrassing it would be to lose to the winless Cleveland Browns in prime time.They would rather focus on the benefits of a victory, which would thrust Baltimore into sole possession of first place in the AFC North, a half-game ahead of the Steelers.Facing the Browns (0-9) on Thursday night, the Ravens (4-4) have an opportunity to sustain the momentum derived from a win over Pittsburgh that ended a four-game losing streak.I think the fact that (the Browns) havent won yet does add to the challenge for us, because theyre going to be coming in here very determined to win a football game, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. Their issues arent our issues. Our issue right now is to build on where were at.Still, the Ravens know a loss to Cleveland would be a severe blow to their reputation.When youre a team thats in front of the division -- and with how the outside world looks at it -- if the Ravens lose this game, it just looks bad, quarterback Joe Flacco said. It looks bad because we lost to a team that doesnt have any wins. Thats the reality of it. It just doesnt look good.Heres something that really doesnt look good: nine straight defeats to open a season. That matches the worst start in Browns history, a dubious mark set by the 1975 squad that finished 3-11.Cleveland has been outscored by 105 points, ranks 31st in total defense and has already sorted through a half-dozen quarterbacks.It gets tougher every week that you dont get a win, veteran tackle Joe Thomas said Obviously, as those loss totals stack up, it is more difficult to be positive.The skid would have never gotten this far if the Browns would have capitalized on a 20-0 lead at home against Baltimore in Week 2. The Ravens rallied for a 25-20 win and now own a 26-9 advantage in this lopsided rivalry.We know how to start games; we have not been able to finish them yet, first-year coach Hue Jackson said. Our motivation is we need a win. We are a 0-9 football team, and we want to get on the other side of the ledger.Some things to know about this AFC North matchup:LET `ER RIP, CODY: Browns quarterback Cody Kessler has shown improvement, but hes 0-6 as a starter. He has excellent accuracy on short throws, but isnt stretching the field with long passes.Jackson wants him to be more of a playmaker.Codyss done a good job of distributing the ball and hes done a good job of putting the ball in the right places for the most part. Cheap Jerseys Store. But he knows now that in the NFL you have to take a few more chances to score points because the defenses are too good, the coach said.READY OR NOT: The challenge of playing a game with three days preparation is rarely easy, and this is no exception.You can never get used to it, especially when you play your division rival on Sunday and then have to come back and play another game Thursday, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said.The good news is, theres an extended break before the next game.Its nice once a year, Flacco said, because at the end of the day, if you go out there and do your job you get another little bye week to give your body a rest.CANT STOP NOW: Although the Ravens ended their longest losing streak under Harbaugh by beating Pittsburgh, a defeat will make them just another sub-.500 team.We sit at the top of the division, but one loss and you are out, safety Eric Weddle said. This is a division game, a rival. They were up 20-0 on us and easily could have beat us, so we can look at many factors to remind ourselves that we cant take anything for granted.Said Suggs: You dont want to take any steps backward, especially in the AFC.CENTER OF ATTENTION: Cam Ervings second NFL season has been nearly as rough as his first.The starting center sustained a bruised lung in Week 2 and was ejected on Clevelands opening drive in a 35-10 loss to Dallas last week. Erving got into a tussle with Cowboys defensive end David Irving, who punched him before getting his helmet ripped off.Erving, who struggled at guard last season, hopes to rebound against the Ravens.We teased him. He has fresher legs than anybody, Jackson joked. You cant be throwing helmets. He is looking forward to playing.PURPLE HAZE: The Ravens will have purple jerseys and purple pants, their version of the NFLs color rush.And that, Suggs noted, is one plus to playing on Thursday night.We get to wear the nice flashy uniforms, he said with a smile.---AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '

LOS ANGELES -- Brandon McCarthy couldnt find his best stuff. China Jerseys 2018 . Thankfully for the Los Angeles Dodgers, the bullpen could. Again.Despite his struggles, McCarthy won his second straight start after a 14-month recovery from Tommy John surgery, and the Dodgers scored a disputed run to beat the San Diego Padres 4-3 on Saturday.I hadnt really had one yet, coming through the minor leagues, a day where it felt totally foreign, but today it did, McCarthy said.Yesterday, the ball felt perfect in my hand, he said. Today it felt like I was throwing a football.McCarthy (2-0) gave up three runs in five innings, including a first-inning, two-run homer by Yangervis Solarte.The right-hander retired 10 of the next 12 hitters, holding the Padres to a pair of walks. McCarthys win came six days after he threw five scoreless innings in his return from major surgery.Going five innings meant the Dodgers bullpen needed to come up big. Again. Los Angeles relievers have thrown 28 innings over the last six games.I know Ive asked a lot of them, but to a man, theyve responded, manager Dave Roberts said.I think were looking forward to getting to that break. With those guys, theyre prepared. Theyre taking care of themselves. Im trying to be mindful of their usage, but still trying to win baseball games.Dodgers reliever Adam Liberatore got two outs for his club-record 24th consecutive scoreless appearance. He broke the mark of 23 set by John Candelaria in 1991, but didnt know it at the time.Dave was coming out, and Yas (Dodger catcher Yasmani Grandal) came out and said, `Congrats. And I didnt know what he was talking about, he said. It seemed like a really weird thing to say in that situation. Im getting pulled and the guys saying, `Congrats.Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth for his 26th save.It was 3-all in the fifth when Corey Seager scored from second base on a throwing error by shortstop Alexei Ramirez as he tried to complete a double play.With runners at first and second, Adrian Gonzalez hit a high bouncer to second baseman Ryan Schmipf, who threw to Ramirez for a forceout.Justin Turner slid toward the outfield side of second base -- which he grabbed as he went by -- and Ramirez made a wide throw that glanced off the glove of first baseman Wil Myers. The Padres challenged the call, but replay upheld the original ruling that Turners slide was legal.Youre running along the grass and then the next that you know, youre 6 feet outside of the grass, so you clearly at some point in time changed his path, Padres manager Andy Green.Was it not close enough to call? I guess thats what they decided, he said.Solarte homered over the fence in right-center field to give the Padres a 2-0 lead in the first. Over his last 19 games, Solarte is hitting .380 (27 for 71) with seven doubles, four homers and 16 RBI.Luis Perdomo (3-4) took the loss.POMERANZ TO PETCOPadres starter Drew Pomeranz (8-7, 2.47) was picked on Saturday to the National Leagues All-Star team for the first time in his career.Hes earned everything hes gotten this year, Green said. Hes definitely rewarded the front office for the faith it had trading for him, and understanding the type of pitcher he could be, and is.MOST IN MAJORSTravis Jankowski easily stole second on the first pitch to Solarte in the first inning, his ninth theft in 16 games since June 21, the most in the majors during that stretch.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: C Derek Norris was back in the starting lineup after leaving Friday nights game with a right quad contusion suffered in a first-inning collision with Dodgers 2B Chase Utley. He regenerates quickly, Green said. He took a shot. Its a testament to how tough he is. We waited to post the starting lineup to see if he was capable of going.Dodgers: RHP Julio Urias will head to the minors to learn to pitch in relief, Roberts said before the game. The Dodgers want the 19-year-old to learn to pitch in a variety of situations before reaching a team-imposing innings cap. The Dodgers will make the move after the All-Star break, Roberts said. ... OF Andre Ethier (fractured tibia), out since spring training, is playing catch, taking swings in the batting cage. Hes more of a baseball player now, Roberts said. The Dodgers are hoping hell return in early August.NEXT UPPadres: LHP Christian Friedrich (4-4, 4.42) starts in Sundays finale before the All-Star Game. After posting a 3-1 record with a 2.12 ERA over his first six appearances for the Padres, Friedrich is 1/3 with an 8.31 ERA over his last five. Hes given up six home runs in those five appearances.Dodgers: RHP Kenta Maeda (7-6, 3.07) hopes to right himself after three starts in which hes gone 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA, giving up three home runs along the way.

They missed out in subsequent editions of the games in Manila and Tokyo. By the time the 1962 games in Jakarta began, Indian footballs profile had risen considerably under coach Syed Abdul Rahim; the semi-final finish at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne was the highlight.The moment India began their group engagements with a 2-0 defeat to South Korea, but then comprehensively beat Thailand and Japan to set up a semi-final against South Vietnam. After winning 3-2, they came up against the Koreans again in the final, but this time they also had to deal with a hostile crowd, angered by some comments attributed to the Indian chef de mission. Rahim played centre-back Jarnail Singh as a striker since he had injured his forehead and required stitches. Jarnail responded by scoring one of the goals in a 2-1 win.The reaction I was a lucky captain that I had such brilliant players with me. Of course, I contributed a bit myself, having scored two goals to bring us into the finals. - Chuni Goswami, India captainExpert view This remains one of the greatest achievements of Indian football because of the difficult circumstances in which it was achieved. In the final against South Korea, the capacity crowd booed India and did not even pay respect to Indias national anthem. When the ball came in Indias half, such was the din that the referees whistle was not audible. - Novy Kapadia, journalist and historianThe story since Rahim, often considered one of the greatest international coaches of his generation, was suffering from cancer and passed away soon after, in 1963. Indias next continental triumph was a runners-up position at the 1964 Asian Cup, and their next best was a bronze at the 1970 Asian Games.

Former Liverpool captain Phil Thompson believes the Reds are just one of six teams capable of winning the Premier League this season. Cheap Jerseys Throwback . Liverpools title odds have been cut from 9/1 to 3/1 by Sky Bet following an impressive start to the campaign which currently sees them sit level on points with leaders Manchester City after nine games.However, despite now being second favourites for the league, the Soccer Saturday pundit has called for calm from the Anfield faithful as he believes the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Chelsea and City are all in with an equal chance as the Reds of winning the title. Pundits Sky Bet tips Find out what Thommo and the pundits are tipping up for Crystal Palace v Liverpool here Im still cautious, he told Sky Sports. I dont think anybody should get carried away. Theres still so many teams which are capable of winning the league, all of the big six have a chance.People thought City were going to be running away with it after their perfect start and suddenly its supposedly crisis. A 2-1 win over West Brom last Saturday saw Liverpool pull level on points with Man City at the top of the table Its a Premier League weekly, because a different team is becoming the flavour. Just look at Arsenal, they were being written off, then people start to believe, then they draw with Middlesbrough and talk about them goes quiet again. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Liverpool have as good a chance as most, but I stick with my pre-season prediction in making Manchester City favourites.Were still in the infancy of the campaign and Im just hoping Liverpool are there come April, still playing the same football. Watch highlights of Liverpools 2-1 win against West Brom Jurgen Klopps high-intensity style is having the desired impact, with his side top of both the distance covered and the sprint charts, while they have also scored the joint highest number of goals in the league this season.Thompson is enjoying what hes seeing from his old team, but is also wary of the challenge of them having to maintain such intensity going forward due to a lack of squad depth compared to their rivals.It is quite reminiscent of Brendan Rodgers season when we finished second and everybody enjoyed the way Liverpool played, except for Everton and Man United fans, he said. Phil Thompson has hailed James Milner for his performances at left back so far this season However, Im not sure our squad is as big as the likes of Arsenal and City, so we need to keep the core of the squad fit, the likes of Dejan Lovren, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane.I would still think the squad needs strengthening a little bit. Just look at the left-back situation, James Milner deserves massive credit in an area where we lacked options when Alberto Moreno was struggling.

Weve been in the playoffs -- we played Sam Houston State, who was No. 2 in the country at that time -- I think this team is more complete.

Dwyane Wades initial contract discussions with the Miami Heat have not produced a common ground between the parties, and he is preparing to field outside offers when free agency opens Friday, according to league sources. Oakland Raiders Jerseys Cheap .Sources told ESPN.com that Wades representatives have made it known to multiple teams over the past several days that he will be on the market. Some teams have been skeptical, wondering whether Wade would seriously consider leaving the franchise where he has played 13 seasons and won three titles.The Heat and Wade had several contentious weeks last year before they agreed on a one-year, $20 million deal for this past season.Wade, 34, played in 74 games, his most in five years, and averaged 19 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists in what was seen as a strong indication he had moved past the knee issues that had plagued him for several years.At the end of the season, Wade said he hoped negotiations with the Heat would go more smoothly this summer.I hope that everything is quiet and works out the way I want it to, Wade said. But I have no control over that, as much as people might think. Its a lot of moving parts in free agency. Im not worried about it.The Heat currently have around $40 million in cap space and have nine free agents, including Wade, Hassan Whiteside and Luol Deng.They are one of the six teams set to have a meeting with Kevin Durant?once free agency begins, according to ESPN sources and media reports. This has led the team to attempt to keep maximum flexibility as it heads into July.In addition to gauging Durants interest, Miami has to manage the Chris Bosh situation, as his status heading into next season is undetermined.?Boshs season was cut short for the second year in a row because of health concerns stemming from a blood clot issue.ESPNs Michael Wallace contributed to this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys . James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss. Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys Cheap . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. http://www.nflfansedge.com/dallas-cowboys-jerseys-cheap/ .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court.RICHMOND, Va. -- During a 7-on-7 drill in shorts at Washington Redskins training camp, Robert Griffin III rolled left and couldnt find an open receiver. He started to scramble, saw a lane and ran for 15 yards. Then he hit the turf, with typical RG3 flair. He performed a half-speed slide and rolled over to protect the ball. The crowd went wild. It was perhaps the biggest cheer hes heard for any play yet during camp. "I just thought everybody would love it if I just slid in practice for once," Griffin said. "And I went ahead and did that. I find it easier to slide in football pants than shorts. It was a little harder, but I slid and everybody liked it." Even coach Mike Shanahan laughed. "I thought it was good. ... Its got to become automatic," Shanahan said. "No matter what you do, there has got to be an emphasis there. The players got to believe in it. They have got to think it. If you use it do it in practice, it happens in games." Its an odd sight when people drive hundreds of miles to holler for their favourite player to take it easy, but many in the crowd at camp are content to sit back and watch Griffin sit back and watch, yelling things like: "RG3, take care of that knee" and "We dont need you to play in preseason." They naturally cheer when he does get to throw, but they already know he can do that. Theyre still waiting for him to master the slide. Griffin has been kept out of the main 11-on-11 drills during the first few days of camp in the homestretch of his recovery from reconstructive right knee surgery. Protecting the knee is more important that perfecting the fade route, even if the quarterback is chomping at the bit to accelerate the process. "Its not easy to sit around and watch," Grifffin said Monday. Seattle Seahawks Jerseys Cheap. "I call it Operation Patience. Griffin said he has "no pain" and "no swelling" in his right knee. He says he can plant on the leg the way he did before he first injured it last season. He said hes always forgetting to put on his brace, which he is supposed to wear during practices and games all season. "I dont really worry about my leg anymore," he said. "I just play football." To that end, Griffin feels hes ready to do more than he is allowed. During the portions of practice devoted to special teams, he goes to a separate field and runs through a scaled-down version of the plays he missed during the 11-on-11s. He said got a "little bump-up" in work during Monday mornings walkthrough, although Shanahan said that wasnt the case. Regardless, Griffin wont join the 11-on-11 drills in the main practice until next week at the earliest. "I feel like Im ready for that -- but were being real cautious right now and taking it slow," Griffin said. "Thats what Coach wants to do." Shanahan said the unpredictability of 11-on-11 play makes it dicey for a player coming back from two bad ligaments. "If you put a guy in there too early and he doesnt have that full strength, you could lose that ACL, LCL just like that," said Shanahan, snapping his fingers. "Were not going to do that." Notes: CB DeAngelo Hall slipped and hurt his right ankle while defending a pass during the afternoon practice. He had the ankle taped and returned for a few plays before sitting out the rest of the session. He was scheduled for X-rays. "I dont think its really serious," Shanahan said. ...

To mark his remarkable rise to the top, Sky Sports and HPE have combined to look at Andy Murray’s amazing year and how he did it. China Jerseys Authentic . From the courts of Dunblane to the best player on planet tennis, Murray rubber-stamped his remarkable rise with a ninth title of the season at the ATP World Tour Finals, that confirmed his position as the number one ranked player in the world.As recently as June, when Novak Djokovic became the first man in 47 years to hold all four major titles at the same time, the Serbians lead appeared unassailable.But Murray has been imperious in the months since, winning Wimbledon, Olympic gold, six other titles and losing just three matches. HPE Data Zone Analysis that gives insight, understanding and opinion across major sporting moments. Find out more. He is reaping richly-deserved rewards for an outstanding end to 2016 and has set his sights of remaining at the very top of the game.Murray has recorded a seasons best tally of 78 victories and ended the year on a 24-match winning streak.His form over the second half of the season has strengthened claims that Murray is now the best player in the world - and he has the ranking to prove it. The new challenge is whether he can command a period of dominance and achieve the longevity that has made his rivals legends of the game.But Murrays story is a long one that started in the tortuous winter months of his training camp in Miami and began with another Australian Open final...More Aussie anguishWith his wife, Kim, expecting the arrival of the couples first child, Murrays mind was sure to be elsewhere. A renowned family man having spent his winter training in South Florida, he went to the Aussie Open with no pre-tournament practice other than an exhibition but reached a fifth final in Australia.He had dropped two sets on route to the semi-final, where he faced Milos Raonic, and, but for injury, the Canadian may have turned a 2-1 advantage into victory. Murray rallied to set up another Grand Slam showdown with Djokovic.The Serb claimed a fifth crown in Melbourne and a tearful Murray was left to reflect on an encouraging start, a flight home and the prospect of becoming a father.In his speech, he said: And to my wife Kim, Im sure shes going to be watching back home just now. Youve been a legend the last few weeks. Thank you for your support and Ill be on the next flight home. 2016 Most ATP singles titles Total Gland Slam Olympics Masters Andy Murray 9 1 1 3 Novak Djokovic 7 2 - 4 Stan Wawrinka 4 1 - - Dominic Thiem 4 - - - Nick Kyrgios 3 - - - Slow startMurray took an extended break to enjoy the birth of his daughter, Sophia, and he resurfaced to win his two singles rubbers in Great Britains Davis Cup match against Japan after a month off.The following week, he headed to America for the traditional start to the Masters 1000 Series, with back-to-back tournaments in California and Florida.Indian Wells has been a friend to Murray with just one final to his name, but a shock third-round exit to world No 53 Federico Delbonis was not on the cards - and neither was a loss to Grigor Dimitrov at the same stage in Miami, a tournament Murray has won twice before.Murray then began to show signs of form with a strong start to his clay-court season, reaching the semi-final in Monte Carlo before a defeat to Rafael Nadal, who went on to claim his ninth title at the tournament. Djokovic beat Murray in Paris but that proved to be a catalyst for Murrays memorable second half of the season The Scot made amends in Madrid a few weeks later, beating Nadal in the last four before a three-set defeat to Djokovic in the final.At the Rome Masters the following week and without a coach, Murrays golden run was to begin. He eased to another final showdown with Djokovic without dropping a set.A magnificent match saw Murray claim his first title in the Italian capital with a 6-3 6-3 win over the world No 1 and he would head to Roland Garros and the French Open boosted by a notable win against Djokovic.After three semi-final appearances in Paris, Murray went on to make a first final, but standing in his way again would be Djokovic. Murray, inspired by his Rome efforts, took the first set.However, with Djokovic aiming for a career Grand Slam, Murray was to slump to another defeat to the Serb who claimed his 12th major title and would hold all four major titles at the same time.A familiar faceWith the grass court season in sight and an impressive clay-court season behind him, Murray was to turn to a familiar face before the Aegon Championships at Queens Club.Ivan Lendl returned to the Murray camp. The man who had been in the box when Murray claimed his first and second Grand Slam titles as well as Olympic gold would take up a familiar role alongside Murray for the Grand Slams and training blocks.The result was instant as Murray claimed his sixth title at Queens, recovering from a set down to beat Milos Raonic in the final. He headed to Wimbledon with hopes high of a third Grand Slam title.Grand Slam gloryStraight-sets wins over fellow Brit Liam Broady, Yen Hsun Lu and John Millman at Wimbledon set up a last-16 clash with the enigmatic Nick Kyrgios. The Aussie was dispatched in three uncomplicated sets and an untroubled Murray was into the last eight again, while Djokovics troubles were to begin with a third-round defeat to Sam Querrey.Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was the opponent, and when Murray eased into a two-set lead, Britain relaxed. However, Tsonga was inspired and reeled off the next two sets to force a fifth, but Murray kept his cool and got the job done.A routine win over Tomas Berdych followed and Milos Raonic lay in wait as Murray made an 11th Grand Slam final but for the first time would face an opponent that was not Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic.The result was emphatic as Murray claimed Grand Slam title No 3 with a 6-4 7-6 7-6 victory.Golden summerMurray enjoyed a well-deserved summer off with the break seemingly invigorating the 29-year-old, who rather than slowing down, picked up the pace for what would become the run of his career.As a fan of team sports, he made no secret of his desire for more Olympic success and having claimed the Olympic mens singles gold medal on Wimbledons Centre Court at London 2012, he headed to Rio de Janeiro 2016 in spectacular form (one defeat in 24 matches) and confident of a second title. Murray claimed a second Olympic gold medal with victory over Juan Martin del Potro in Rio The Games got off to the perfect start when he was selected to be the flag bearer for Team GB at the opening ceremony, and he went on to defend the gold medalViktor Troicki, Juan Monaco, Fabio Fognini, Steve Johnson and Kei Nishikori were all dispatched as part of Murrays brilliant run to the final. There, he ran into Juan Martin del Potro, who had beaten world No 1 Djokovic in the first round.The Argentine proved a tough nut to crack before Murray eventually prevailed in a near four-hour four-set marathon 7-5 4-6 6-2 7-5.Targeting Novak Murray v Djokovic 2016 Andy Murray Novak Djokovic 78-9 Season Record 65-9 9 Tournament Wins 7 2 Head-to-Head - all finals 3 18-3 Clay Record 16-2 12-0 Grass Record 2-1 48-6 Hard Record 47-9 With a third Grand Slam in the bag and a second Olympic gold around his neck, Murray re-evaluated his goals and set his sights on the seemingly impossible task of overhauling Djokovic at the top of the rankings.Amazingly, after his draining success in Rio de Janeiro, he was back in action the following week at the Cincinnati Masters, where he progressed to the final without dropping a set before losing to Marin Cilic in the final.Murray returned to Grand Slam action in New York but he suffered another early exit. His quarter-final defeat to Nishikori meant he had not gone beyond the last eight at Flushing Meadows since his 2012 Grand Slam breakthrough.After Great Britains Davis Cup defeat to Argentina, which included a loss as Del Potro gained his revenge, back-to-back titles in Asia took Murray to within striking distance of Djokovic, whose second half of the season did not match the heights of the first.Murrays Shanghai victory took him to six titles in a year for the first time since 2009, and he added number seven in Vienna with a dominant display to head to the Paris Masters on the back of three successive tournament victories and within striking distance of Djokovic.When the Serb crashed to a straight-sets defeat to Marin Cilic in the last eight, Murray followed up with victory over Berdych before claiming top spot when Raonic withdrew from their semi-final.For good measure Murray claimed the title in the French capital and headed to London as the best player in the world.Both Murray and Djokovic racked up three straight wins in the group stages, Murray encountering a three-and-a-half hour epic against Nishikori along the way was the Serb was showing ominous signs of being back to his very best.The semi-finals were very different affairs, Djokovic breezed past Nishikori for the loss of a just a couple of games in just over an hour, while Murray saved a match point against Milos Raonic before eventually prevailing in 3hrs 38mins, the longest match in World Tour Finals history.Was the Djokovic of the first half of the season back, how on earth could Murray gear himself to go again.The answer was unequivocal as Murray triumphed 6-3 6-4 to claim his first ever title in the season-end event and confirmed his position as the number one player in the world, the challenge now is to build on it.In much the same way Nadal rose to Federers dominance, Djokovic to the Spaniard now Murray has to Djokovic.Does the Serb have it in his locker to rise again, or will a new force emerge. Next year promises to be every bit as fascinating.Find out more about Hewlett Packard Enterprise data solutions.

Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. LONDON -- Roger Federer and Andy Murray are closing in on another Wimbledon final.Federer, a seven-time champion from Switzerland, is 34 and still looking to make history at the All England Club by winning a record eighth title.The 29-year-old Murray already made his mark in 2013, becoming the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.The pair are on opposite sides of the draw, so if they win quarterfinals Wednesday, and then semifinals Friday, they would meet each other for the title Sunday.I hope I can win Wimbledon one more time, said Federer, who beat Murray in the 2012 final. That would be nice.That would also be an understatement.Both Pete Sampras and 1880s player William Renshaw have won seven Wimbledon titles, but no one has eight. The only male player at any Grand Slam tournament with that many is Rafael Nadal, who has won the French Open nine times.Federer will face ninth-seeded Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals, while Murray will take on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. If Federer advances, he will equal Jimmy Connors record of 11 Wimbledon semifinal appearances.In the other mens quarterfinal matches, sixth-seeded Milos Raonic will face 28th-seeded Sam Querrey, and 2010 finalist Tomas Berdych will play Lucas Pouille.Querrey knocked defending champion Novak Djokovic out of the tournament in the third round.Heres a look at the four mens quarterfinal matches:FEDERER VS. CILIC: Federer is 5-1 against Cilic, but its the one loss that still hurts.Cilic routed Federer in straight sets in the U.S. Open semifinals in 2014, the last time the two players met on court.These things happen. Its OK to get blown off the court, Federer said. I never fully played freely in the match. But that was to his credit for just keeping cranking out serves and big returns.Cilic ended up winning his first major title at that tournaament in New York. Wholesale China Jerseys. Hes hoping to reach the Wimbledon semifinals for the first time.MURRAY VS. TSONGA: Tsonga has twice reached the Wimbledon semifinals, including beating Federer in the 2011 quarterfinals.Murray, however, has beaten Tsonga in 11 of their last 12 matches, including four times on grass.I know Tsonga is one of the best grass court players in the world, said Murray, who is 6-2 in Wimbledon quarterfinals. If he plays well (and) Im not on my game, I can lose that match for sure.RAONIC VS. QUERREY: Querrey is playing the tournament of his life, reaching the quarterfinals of a major for the first time while beating top-ranked Djokovic along the way.I think he (Querrey) must be doing great things, said Raonic, who recovered from two sets down to reach the quarterfinals. Im sure he sent a message to other players, as well, that hes ready to play.Querrey beat Raonic at Wimbledon in 2012, when the Canadian was just 21. In 2014, Raonic advanced to the semifinals, where he lost to Federer.BERDYCH VS. POUILLE: Berdych is the only player left in the mens draw that wont have a rest day before the quarterfinals.The 10th-seeded Czech was forced to finish his fourth-round match against Jiri Vesely on Tuesday because play was suspended by darkness the night before.With the recovery, I think it was actually a good day to play a set. Its like a day of practice, Berdych said. Im quite used to it actually. Im doing it day by day, so thats fine.Pouille, a 22-year-old Frenchman, is playing in the second week of a major tournament for the first time. He had been 0-4 on grass heading into Wimbledon, but hes now 4-4.Before the tournament, Pouille said, (my goal) was to win one match on grass.

Anthony Ainley (1932-2004) The Wisden Almanacks obituaries have changed in recent years, from rather dry, fact-based accounts of a players career (longer if the chap went to the right school, or played in the Varsity Match) to, if at all possible, more rounded reviews of the persons life. Cheap Jerseys Online . Even jokes arent banned anymore. The change really started when Matthew Engel took over as editor in 1993. The whole book became more expressive, more characterful and more fun.I joined the Almanacks obituaries team before I started full-time for the Almanack itself. In 2004 I was still Cricinfos editor, and Matthew asked me to help out when I could. I was lucky that an alphabetical accident meant my first obituary was a memorable one.Anthony Ainley wasnt a first-class cricketer but an actor who won fame as The Master, the evil nemesis of Doctor Who. I knew he was a keen club cricketer, as Id played against him. I knew he batted in what looked like flying goggles, to protect his eyes for screen close-ups. And I knew - because hed done it to me - that if he felt tied down at the crease he would leap out, Trumper-like, with bat behind ear, and try to scythe you through covers. At one of our encounters hed had a tiff with a highly strung thespian team-mate and sloped off to take tea in his car. Gentle probing established that the argument wasnt to blame - he often did this, as he hated cheese, the ever-present staple of club teas, and brought his own food.My club had an enthusiastic chronicler at the time, who would drop off match reports to the local paper on his way home. His words of wisdom on this particular game obviously excited the sports desk, as the headline for our match report exclaimed that Inter-Galactic Terror had been visited upon Surrey.Don Bradman (1908-2001) Probably my most memorable obituary - or appreciation - came in 2001. We were setting up Wisden.com (which later merged with Cricinfo), and were coming to terms with the 24-hour nature of the beast. Late one cold February evening I received a phone call: Have you heard? Don Bradman has died.I hadnt heard. And there wasnt much time to reflect: the news, and an appraisal of the Don, had to go up online pronto. It was pushing midnight, but the words seemed to flow, and about half an hour later I pressed the button. Satisfyingly, my verdict was out there. Not long afterwards, the editor of a sumptuous Bradman tribute volume asked whether he could include it. The piece duly appeared in there, opposite another appreciation by Australias prime minister, John Howard - which, I suspect, impressed the Aussie half of my family more than anything else Ive ever done.Nigel Bennett (1912-2008) At the Almanack we dont often have the pressure of time; with the book out like clockwork every April, theres usually a reasonable period to work on those who passed away the previous year - although the sad demise of Tony Greig on December 29 a couple of years ago ruffled the teams calm a little.But perhaps theres a drawback in not preparing anything beforehand: manys the time Ive fervently wished I had spoken to the player before he took his leave, to discover more about an obviously interesting life. One such was Nigel Bennett, the man who was appointed captain of Surrey by mistake. When he died in 2008 we consulted Alec Bedser, who just nodded and termed it the cock-up.It seems that not long after Surrey decided to appoint a Major Leo Bennett as their first post-war skipper in 1946, Major Nigel Bennett popped in to renew his subscription. Someone in the office totted up two and two and made five, and Major Nigel was duly asked to take over as captain. This peculiar story was neatly embellished when Matthew Engel discovered that the players decided they could put up with Bennett once they clapped eyes on his wife, who was a real cracker.Michael Mence (1944-2014) There arent many advantages to getting older, but I suppose its a help to obituary-writers: youre more likely to have seen the player concerned. One such, who duly appeared in the 2015 Almanack, was Michael Mence, who I met several times when I worked at Lords after leaving school.Mence was an old-fashioned amateur who played hard and partied harder. I remember one morning bumping into my boss, Lieutenant-Colonel John Stephenson, and thinking he looked less dapper than usual following the previous nights committee meeting. I must have raised an eyebrow because he winced: I know. Mence. Never again. Mence had been a precocious schoolboy cricketer but played for Warwickshire and Gloucestershire without a great deal of success. He had more luck in Minor Counties cricket for Berkshire, and was also an MCC regular, especially enjoying their annual matches against Ireland and Scotland. And he was, according to MCCs annual report, probably the last player to appear at Lords sporting a cravat - a titbit I wish Id known before finishing the obituary. Somewhat spookily Mence passed away three days after his father (who also played for Berkshire) died in the same hospice on the Isle of Wight.Don Wilson (1937-2012) Someone else I knew well from my time at Lords was Don Wilson, the Yorkshire and England slow left-armer who later became MCCs head coach. He was interesting (and occasionally infuriating) to work with, a fund of funny stories and far-fetched excuses for why he hadnt quite managed to do what hed been asked.But most of the time he was riotous company, so I was sad when I heard he had succumbed to emphysema in 2012.

Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. STANFORD, Calif. -- After opening the season with losses to lower-division Eastern Washington and Boise State, Washington State has staged a dramatic turnaround and is now overwhelming the Pac-12s recent powerhouses.The Cougars followed a lopsided win over Oregon that was fueled by a dominant running attack with a thorough beating of No. 15 Stanford led by the play in the trenches.Luke Falk threw for 357 yards and four touchdowns and the defensive line shut down Christian McCaffrey and the Cardinal offense in a 42-16 victory on Saturday night.We had to realize theres no good finesse teams in football, receiver Gabe Marks said. Even the teams you guys like to call finesse teams, they really arent. ... We had to come back to basics and just grind it out.The Cougars (3-2, 2-0) held the Cardinal (3-2, 2-2) to 296 yards of offense and didnt allow an offensive score until the final play of the game. The offensive line managed to protect Falk well enough to allow him to find his receivers downfield.Falk connected with Tavares Martin Jr. twice in the first half and added second-half TD passes to Marks and River Cracraft to help the Cougars follow up last weeks 51-33 win over Oregon by ending an eight-game losing streak to Stanford. The Ducks and Cardinal have combined to win the past seven conference titles.That streak is in serious jeopardy this year as the Cardinal got blown out for the second straight game, losing in back-to-back weeks for the first time in six seasons under coach David Shaw. Stanford lost 44-6 at Washington last week. The Ducks are 0-3 in conference play.Stanford has been the class of the conference for a while now, Marks said. Since Ive been here, theyve been a powerhouse. For us, these past two weeks have really been important to finally see the work pay off and realize our potential and becoming what we thought we would be.Making matters worse for the Cardinal was the fact that last years Heisman runner-up McCaffrey went to the locker room in the second half with an injury and didnt return to the game. McCaffrey came back to the sideline and had his helmet on, but didnt re-enter the game.There was no reason to put him in late in the gaame, Shaw said.ddddddddddddWe just left him out. Well see how he is during the course of the week.THE TAKEAWAYWashington State: The Cougars got their first win against a team ranked in the top 15 since knocking off No. 5 Texas in the 2003 Holiday Bowl. Falk stepped up in key spots, connecting on a 29-yard score to Martin on fourth-and-7 to make it 14-3 in the second quarter. After letting Stanford back into the game with an interception that Frank Buncom returned for a TD, Falk hit Marks for a score on third-and-goal from the 17 to make it 28-10.Stanford: The Cardinal offense struggled to do anything as the offensive line was dominated in the trenches and Ryan Burns missed on chances for a few big plays. McCaffrey was held to 35 yards on eight carries and one catch for 5 yards. Stanford allowed four sacks after giving up eight last week and the only big play came on a 44-yard pass to Michael Rector on the final play of the first half. Shaw said the Cardinal missed four potential TD passes and the offense didnt reach the end zone until the final play. Even the usually reliable Conrad Ukropina missed two field goals.So weve got to hit those opportunities. Shaw said. You know, its not just one of those. Weve got to hit multiple. If those things are there, weve got to hit them.MUSIC MANCougars coach Mike Leach didnt want to blame a couple of false starts on the noise, even if he did say the public address speakers were especially loud.It was loud and it sounded good, he said. I thought they played good music, too. I mean, some of the music I could do without, but I thought Stanford has great taste in music. Who would have thunk it?POLL IMPLICATIONSStanford should plummet again after dropping eight spots last week in the AP Top 25 poll .UP NEXTWashington State: The Cougars return home to host UCLA.Stanford: The Cardinal take a break from conference play to travel to struggling Notre Dame (2-4).---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org---This story has been corrected to fix Washington States conference record to 2-0.
