After an appearance at the French Open and a five-match run at the Aegon Classic, Blainville, Quebecs Aleksandra Wozniak reflects on her play and her preparation for Roland Garros in her personal blog on RDS.ca and TSN.ca. The last few weeks have been hectic between my participation at Roland Garros and my debut this Tuesday at Wimbledon. It was a heartbreaking match against Sorana Cirstea at the French Open about two weeks ago. Its been awhile since I found myself in a situation like that. I lost the match by a hair after being at match point. Against the 26th-seed in the tournament, a player who hits very hard, its already promised to be difficult. I played a very good game until I dropped the second set and it has been a little hard to get over it eventually. I rather started playing a little too defensively and it let her take the lead and I dropped points. I made too many mistakes in the third set and its been difficult for me after the meeting. But its time to turn the page quickly to tackle the season on grass. I trained with artificial turf on the site of Roland Garros and made the adjustments necessary to make the transition from clay to grass, which is not easy because its a completely different game. Balls move faster, points come quicker with up to three exchanges, and it is rare that there are more than that. It was necessary to modify some aspects of my game accordingly. To put these adjustments into practice, I flew to Birmingham where I had an excellent tournament. I played five big matches, including two in qualifying. My progress was stopped, however, in the third round by former Wimbledon semi-finalist, Kirsten Flipkens. I won the first set 6-1 and was leading the second 3-1, but Flipkens came back strong and served well. She played better in the third set than I did. While she was aggressive, I struggled with my games and was fighting shots. Flipkens is especially difficult to play on grass because of the way she can slice and her net play, so its no surprise that she went as far as she did at Wimbledon in 2013. Still, it was a good tournament for me and there was a lot to be gained from it. Little by little, Im improving in the rankings. Im up to 118th in the world, which is an improvement of 17 places since the last rankings. My coach, Nathalie Tauziat, also said she likes the progress in my game that shes noticed since the beginning of this European swing at the Cagnes-sur-Mer tournament in France. Were continuing to move forward and this is encouraging. It just takes one good tournament run to accumulate points and keep propelling forward. Tomorrow (June 17), I have another opportunity to build on this momentum when I begin qualifying for the main draw at Wimbledon. I will face Renata Voracova, not a very well-known player, who is ranked 172nd in the world. Shes a regular doubles player on top of singles and loves to play at the net. Voracova loves to play on grass and Im going to have to dictate the pace from the start. Because the ball doesnt bounce as well on grass, Im going to have to keep low, legs bent, in anticipation of its movement. Qualification continues on Wednesday and Thursday. A woman amongst the men A little bit of a digression here on the recent news of Andy Murray hiring Amelie Mauresmo as his new coach. Its rare to see a woman in this position, especially in the ATP, because often, after their careers, female players spend time with their families. I think Murray picked Mauresmo with good reason. Shes a former Grand Slam champion (the Australian Open and Wimbledon) with lots of experience. He sees what she can provide, but this is a bit of a different approach. In my case, it was last year when I began training with a female coach after years of training with men. We get along well because Nathalie understands the emotions of a player. Their new partnership is a trial for the grass court season. Its difficult to find the right mix between the player and coach and theres always a period of adjustment. Chemistry wont be built in an instant. Murray will assess all of this after Wimbledon to see if the potential for a longer-term partnership is there. Adrian Peterson Jersey . Fans holding laudatory signs started showing up at Yankee Stadium when the gates opened at 4 p.m. Monday, an hour early in order to give them a chance to watch the New York captain take batting practice. Chris Doleman Jersey . The injury could land Machado on the 15-day disabled list, but its not as serious as it looked on Monday night, when the third baseman crumpled in a heap at the plate after taking an awkward swing in a game against the New York Yankees. http://www.thevikingsshoponline.com/Youth-Fran-Tarkenton-Vikings-Jersey/. -- The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets will forever be tied together for making the same spectacular misjudgment on budding NBA sensation Jeremy Lin. Riley Reiff Jersey . But Paul Osbaldiston, Hamiltons assistant special teams and kicking coach, said the team still relished the championship game workout. John Randle Jersey . -- Max Gilbert captured his first pro victory at the Tour Championship of Canada.SAN DIEGO -- Padres manager Bud Black had been waiting for his hitters to come around. With an early crack at the New York bullpen, thats exactly what they did. Will Venable had four hits and San Diego got home runs from Nick Hundley and Jedd Gyorko in an 8-2 victory over the Mets on Saturday night. Mets starter Jenrry Mejia left early with discomfort in his surgically repaired elbow, and the Padres took advantage when New Yorks relief corps was pressed into service. San Diego finished with 15 hits in snapping a three-game losing streak. "The bats woke up a little bit," Black said. Edinson Volquez (9-10) worked five innings for the win and Venable extended his career-high hitting streak to 14 games, the longest active run in the National League. "Im just trying to keep my rhythm and swing at strikes," he said. Volquez earned his first career victory against the Mets despite reaching 100 pitches in five innings. "I had a couple of long innings and my pitch count got high," he said. "But the best part was the win after losing three. Everyone can go home happy." Mets catcher Travis dArnaud, a highly touted prospect acquired in the R.A. Dickey trade last off-season, went 0 for 2 with two walks in his major league debut. The Padres stole three bases against dArnaud and he allowed a passed ball. Mejia exited in the fourth after throwing two balls to Logan Forsythe. The right-hander, who had Tommy John surgery in 2011, walked off the mound and was met by manager Terry Collins. Mejia has been pitching with a bone spur, and it had been determined that he would undergo off-season surgery. "We knew that there was a time when it might come back," Collins said. Mejia was replaced by David Aardsma, and moments later the Padres broke a 1-all tie. Forsythe singled off Aardsma (2-2) and scored on Hundleys two-run homer to left field. It was Hundleys second hit in his first game back after spending two days on the paternity list. "Thats the best moment of my career by far," Hundley said of his career-high 10th homer. "I couldnt stop smiling. I thought about my daughter and got a little emotional on the bench." The Padres stretched their lead to 4-1 when Alexi Amaristas sharp single scored Venable after he doubled down the right-field line. The Mets cut it to 4-2 on Wilmer Flores RBI double in the fifth. TThe Padres pushed it back to 5-2 on Jesus Guzmans RBI single in the bottom half.dddddddddddd Gyorko added a three-run homer in the eighth. Venable singled in his first at-bat and stole second. Amarista moved Venable to third with a groundout and, when Yonder Alonso walked, the Padres had runners on the corners. Mejia retired Gyorko, but Chris Denorfia followed with a run-scoring single. San Diegos 1-0 lead was in jeopardy in the second, when the Mets loaded the bases with two outs on walks to dArnaud and Omar Quintanilla and a single by Juan Lagares. Mejia hit a chopper near the plate, with Volquez and Hundley converging on it. Volquez fielded the ball near the first base line and threw across his body to nip Mejia at first. But the Mets tied the game in the third on Daniel Murphys RBI single, which scored Eric Young Jr. after he reached on a bunt and stole second. Now, the Mets will see how Mejias rebuilt elbow responds after he was forced from the game. "It was a matter of pain threshold and it was exceeded apparently (Saturday night), and he had to come out," Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. "The doctor here took a look at him but at this point its about his symptoms. Obviously severe and we will see where this takes us." NOTES: New York called up dArnaud from Triple-A Las Vegas after starting catcher John Buck went on the paternity list Friday. Both were obtained in the December deal that sent Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays. ... DArnaud will catch All-Star RHP Matt Harvey on Sunday, a tandem the Mets hope is a foundation for the future. "That certainly will be a challenge for him because Matt is a different animal than those other guys," Collins said. "But as I talked to Travis this morning, I said, Listen, weve got a game plan. Stay with it. Trust it, and obviously have some input if something isnt working." ... Padres C Chris Robinson was optioned to Triple-A Tucson when Hundley was activated. ... Struggling 3B Chase Headley sat out. Headley was 2 for 8 in the series after hitting .160 (4 for 25) on the last road trip. "He hasnt had many days off, so physically its good, and mentally as well," Black said. "The last five, six games he has been going at it pretty hard both ways." ... Padres LHP Eric Stults (8-10, 3.68 ERA) faces Harvey (9-4, 2.23) in Sundays series finale.
