PARIS —Kei Nishikori of Japan has pulled out of the upcoming French Open after
failing to recover from an abdominal injury. The 18th-ranked Nishikori picked up
the injury playing against Fernando Verdasco in the Barcelona Open quarterfinals
last month, and he has not played since. Organizers said Tuesday that he will be
replaced in the draw by Slovakias Karol Beck. Several other players have pulled
out of the clay-court Grand Slam tournament, which begins Sunday at Roland
Garros, including former runner-up Robin Soderling of Sweden and Mardy Fish of
the United States. A.J. Green Youth Jersey . Evgeni Malkins
dominance of the hockey world reached historical proportions Saturday with a
signature performance in the semifinals of the IIHF World Hockey Championship.
Andy Dalton Womens Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla.
. 22 pick in this years amateur draft, was suspended 50 games Tuesday for
violating baseballs minor league drug program. A.J. Green Jersey .8-million Montreal
Championship seniors golf tournament at Richelieu Valley Golf Club. Couples
pulled out with a recurring back issue, while Price also cited an injury. Andy Dalton Jersey . —Injured pitcher
David Aardsma has agreed to a $500,000, one-year contract with the New York
Yankees.WALTHAM, Mass. —The Celtics player who needs a break the most this
post-season isnt 34-year-old Paul Pierce, whos nursing a knee injury. Or 36-year
old Ray Allen, whos got bone spurs in his ankle. Or even Kevin Garnett, who
turned 36 on Saturday but is playing like he did a decade ago. Its
Avery Bradley, 21, who is determined to stay on the court despite a left
shoulder that has popped out of its socket four times so far during the season.
“He is a guy who wants to be out there; a guy that wants to win and do anything
he can to help,” Pierce said. “A lot of young players would probably sit down
and worry about their futures or careers or contract situations. ... Hopefully
he doesnt have any long-term injuries due to the fact that hes playing.” A
first-round draft pick who did not appear in the playoffs as a rookie last year,
Bradley moved into the starting lineup when Allen was injured and remained there
even after the former All-Star returned. Bradley dislocated his shoulder in Game
3 of Bostons first-round series against Atlanta, but has not missed a game
because of it. “Hes dealing with stuff and its tough,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers
said on Sunday before practice, which Bradley sat out. “A lot of people would
not be playing, and the only reason he is is because he wants to. I am concerned
at some point that he may not be able to anymore. We dont know what game that
is. ... Tomorrow could be his last game.” The Celtics resume the Eastern
Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers with Game 5 on Monday
night. The series is tied 2-2 thanks to the Sixeers comeback from an 18-point,
third-quarter deficit to win Game 4 92-83.dddddddddddd. “Its a swing game, but
its a swing game for both teams,” Rivers said. “Game 5s and Game 7s are pretty
much the same.” Game 6 is Wednesday in Philadelphia, with a seventh game back in
Boston on Saturday, if necessary. With two days off between the fourth and fifth
games, Rivers gave his aging team the day off on Saturday before returning to
practice on Sunday. Bradley did not participate in the workout, but Allen was on
the court shooting jumpers 30 minutes early and Garnett joined him soon after.
“It probably benefits them,” Collins said, noting the number of minutes—more
than 50,000—Garnett has played in the regular season and playoffs in his
career. “Pierce, Allen, ton of minutes . Im sure theyre probably a little
disappointed in themselves that they gave us some life.” Sixers forward
Andre Iguodala said having the extra day probably helps the Celtics “because
they have a lot more miles on their bodies.” “One game, day off, one game, that
was to our advantage,” guard Elton Brand agreed. “They have a lot of veterans on
their team that can use the rest. Helps us but going to help them too.” Rivers
said Bradleys shoulder has popped out at least four times during this season. On
Friday night, it popped out but popped right back in. “Its crazy,” Rivers said,
adding that the injury is keeping Bradley from driving to the basket. “Listen:
Its a tough thing that hes going through. A lot of players would not be
playing.” ’ ’ ’
