LONDON -- Canadas Eugenie Bouchard earned one of the biggest wins of her career Wednesday by upsetting No. Vince Coleman Jersey . 12 seed Ana Ivanovic 6-3, 6-3 in second-round play at Wimbledon. 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 way through. "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. Michael Wacha Cardinals Jersey . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. Ozzie Smith Jersey . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning. LAS VEGAS -- It took 25 years but Duke and UNLV will finally meet again on Saturday afternoon.The fifth-ranked Blue Devils (9-1) and the rebuilding Runnin Rebels (5-3) will play the first college basketball game at the new 18,000-seat T-Mobile Arena, future home of the NHLs Vegas Golden Knights. The contest is part of the fourth annual MGM Grand Showcase, which benefits Coaches vs. Cancer.The teams took part in two iconic NCAA Final Four games back in the early 1990s.UNLV, which was coached by controversial Hall of Famer Jerry Tarkanian and led by future NBA stars Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon and Greg Anthony, won its only national championship in 1990 with a 103-73 thrashing of the Blue Devils. The outcome was the largest margin of victory for an NCAA mens Division I basketball tournament championship game.Mike Krzyzewskis Blue Devils, led by Christian Laettner, Grant Hill and Bobby Hurley, got even the following year in Indianapolis, stunning the 34-0 Rebels, 79-77, in the semifinals en route to the 1991 national championship.There will be a lot of history because two of the greatest games in history -- well, it wasnt a great game on our part -- but the largest margin in a championship, 103 points, and then 91 in the semis is classic, Krzyzewski said. Historically, we shared a moment in time. We shared a moment where we each won.Its fair to say UNLV basketball fans have been anxious for a rematch with Coach K and company since the gut-wrenching loss in 1991. Unfortunately, this version of the Runnin Rebels, who ironically come in off a 97-73 blowout loss to Hurleys Arizona State Sun Devils last Saturday, is nowhere near the caliber of Tarkanians squads that went to four Final Fours between 1977 and 1991.UNLV has played in only eight NCAA tournaments and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen just once since 1991. The Runnin Rebels return just three reserves from an underachieving 18-15 squad that cost head coach Daave Rice his job in midseason and featured an at-times comical coaching search that eventually led to the hiring of Marvin Menzies away from New Mexico State. Carlos Martinez Jersey. Meanwhile, Krzyzewski still roams the sidelines for the Blue Devils, who have gone to 17 Sweet Sixteens and won five NCAA titles since the last time the two teams have met. Many believe this version of Coach Ks squad, led by guards Grayson Allen, Luke Kennard and Frank Jackson and featuring a trio of future freshman NBA lottery picks in Jayson Tatum, Harry Giles and Marques Bolden on the front line, could be Dukes most talented team ever.At the end of the day, both programs have such fantastic brands that it draws the natural attention of folks who love the game and have been following the sport for quite some time, Menzies told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Its a great opportunity for an upset. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain.The Blue Devils also have 6-foot-10 sophomore forward Chase Jeter, whose father Chris was a backup forward on the 1990 and 1991 UNLV teams. Jeter prepped at nearby Bishop Gorman High School but picked Duke over the hometown Rebels, Arizona, UCLA and others.How ironic, huh? Krzyzewski told the Duke Chronicle. I think (Chris Jeter) even has Duke license plates. Hes very proud of what he did at Las Vegas, and hes very proud of what his son is doing at Duke.Sophomore guard Jalen Poyser leads UNLV in scoring (17.5), which also ranks third in the Mountain West.Senior forward Christian Jones, a transfer from St. Johns who Menzies hinted could be back after missing five games with a foot injury, is second in both scoring (14.0) and rebounding (7.0).Kennard (20.4) and Tatum (16.0 points, 8.0 rebounds) lead a balanced Duke attack that features five players averaging in double figures. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
