LAS VEGAS —A judge in Las Vegas said shell decide later this week whether to
ease jail conditions for Floyd Mayweather Jr. T.Y. Hilton Black Jersey ., after his lawyers
argued that the undefeated champion is getting out of shape in solitary
confinement and may never fight again. Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa
made no immediate ruling Tuesday on an emergency motion asking the court to move
Mayweather into the general jail population—something that jail officials had
avoided out of fear for the celebritys safety—or put him in house arrest for
the rest of his three-month sentence. Mayweather lawyer Richard Wright said hed
be willing to have the boxer serve the sentence in an apartment or somewhere
less luxurious than Mayweathers posh Las Vegas-area home. “Im not looking for
special treatment for Floyd Mayweather,” Wright said. “Im looking for fair
treatment.” But prosecutor Lisa Luzaich said softening the sentence would be
just another accommodation, similar to when Mayweathers jail surrender date was
postponed for months after sentencing so he could fight Miguel Cotto in May.
“They keep chipping away, chipping away, chipping away,” Luzaich said.
Mayweather pleaded guilty in December to misdemeanour domestic battery and no
contest to two harassment charges that stemmed from an attack on his
ex-girlfriend while two of their children watched. He was sentenced to three
months and entered the jail June 1. Mayweathers jail stay will be capped at 87
days because the judge gave him credit for three days previously served. It
could be reduced by several weeks for good behaviour. In the motion, which was
first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, lawyers say Mayweathers personal
physician, Dr. Robert Voy, visited the jail Friday and was concerned the
35-year-old fighter appeared to have lost muscle tone. Voy estimated the boxer
was consuming fewer than 800 calories a day—a drop from his usual 3,000 or
4,000 calories—and wasnt drinking enough because he isnt allowed bottled
water and doesnt usually drink tap water. Mayweather has been getting a little
more than 30 minutes twice a day in a couple of barren recreation areas in the
administrative segregation unit. His cell, no larger than 7-by-12 feet, has
barely enough floor space for pushups and situps. But prosecutors argued hes
“deconditioning” by choice, and declining much of his food. “He has the ability
to exercise, he just chooses not to,” Luzaich said. “Its jail. Where did he
think he was going? The Four Seasons?” Voy and Wright also pointed to
Mayweathers declining emotional state. “I am concerned about Floyd withdrawing,
developing anger he cannot dissipate through the usual means of dedicated
exercise and training,” Voy wrote in an affidavit. “Boxing has been Mr.
Mayweathers life since he was a young man and we need champions of this type to
continue to their natural retirement and hopefully their contributions to
society thereafter.” Coby Fleener Elite Jersey .J. —Tired and
emotionally drained after ending the Detroit Red Wings NHL-record 23-game home
winning streak less than 24 hours earlier, the Vancouver Canucks did whats
expected of a very good team—they found a way to beat the New Jersey Devils.
Pat Angerer Jersey . The team announced
Sunday that the roster moves will be made on Monday. Dozier will take the spot
of slugger Justin Morneau, who will placed on the disabled list with a sore
right wrist. http://www.indianapoliscoltsprostore.com/andrew-luck-jersey
. He was 25. Edoardo De Blasio, a cardiologist at Pescaras Santo Spirito
hospital, confirmed Morosinis death, saying “unfortunately he was already dead
when he arrived at hospital. He didnt regain consciousness. Andrew Luck Black Jersey . The team will
follow with visits to the Pistons and Bucks and is 10-20 away from Air Canada
Centre. The Raptors had a two-game winning streak stopped the last time out and
lost for the fifth time in seven tries with a 109-87 loss versus Atlanta Monday.

Here comes the French Open final everyone expected and, except for other
players, wanted: No. 1 Novak Djokovic, one victory from becoming the first man
in 43 years to win four consecutive major championships, against No. 2 Rafael
Nadal, one victory from becoming the only man to win seven titles at Roland
Garros. Hows that for high stakes? You can watch the match live on CTV2, Sunday
at 9am et/6am pt. Djokovic is undefeated in his past 27 Grand Slam matches,
which includes beating Nadal in the finals at Wimbledon in July, the U.S. Open
in September, and the Australian Open in January. Nadal has won 51 of 52 career
matches at the French Open; only he and Bjorn Borg have won the clay-court
tournament six times. Never before have the same two men met in four Grand Slam
finals in a row, so its apt that no matter who wins Sunday, his achievement will
be monumental. “I have this golden opportunity to make history. This motivates
me. It really inspires me. Im really grateful to be in this position,
obviously,” said the 25-year-old Djokovic, who owns five Grand Slam titles to
Nadals 10. “And look, Ill try to prepare for that match and get my hands on that
trophy, if I can.” Wont be easy, thats for sure. Both Djokovic and Nadal breezed
through their semifinals Friday. If this stage of a Grand Slam tournament is
supposed to provide a challenge, it did not—which probably isnt all that
stunning in Nadals case, but was rather striking when you consider Djokovic
faced 16-time major champion Roger Federer and won 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 in a match that
wasnt really that close. “His mental state and preparation for this match was
excellent,” said Djokovics coach, Marian Vadja, “and this has to happen against
Rafa.” Nadal found himself flying by the seat of his pants—OK, white shorts
—on one point against No. 6 David Ferrer, somehow winning the exchange despite
falling on his rump. Otherwise, he was completely in control en route to 6-2,
6-2, 6-1 victory. “Im surprised,” said Toni Nadal, Rafaels uncle and coach,
“because we were expecting a very difficult match against one of the best
players in the world.” Make no mistake: Ferrer is a formidable opponent, not
someone who got hot for a few weeks to sneak into the semifinals. He was playing
in his third Grand Slam semifinal. He already won two clay-court titles this
year. And it was Ferrer who upset Nadal in the 2011 Australian Open
quarterfinals, stopping his bid for a fourth consecutive Grand Slam title—the
milestone Djokovic now seeks. Nadal won all 15 sets hes played this year at
Roland Garros, losing only 35 games, the lowest total for anyone reaching a
major final since Borg lost 31 on his way to winning the 1980 French Open. Nadal
has won 71 of 72 service games, saving 18 of 19 break points. Pretty close to
perfect. “I really dont like to talk about perfection, because that, my opinion,
doesnt exist. You can always play better,” said the 26-year-old Nadal, whose
only loss at the French Open came against Robin Soderling in the fourth round in
2009. “But, sure, I am very happy the way that I am playing. Probably today was
my best match of the tournament.” With Ferrer serving at 1-1, 30-all in the
second set, Nadal produced a masterpiece, turning a gaffe into a highlight.
During a point that lasted more than 30 shots, Nadals feet slipped out from
under him as he sprinted toward the net. On the slow-motion replay, its easy to
see that his eyes never left thee ball, even as he crashed to the court. Andrew Luck Youth Jersey. Suddenly sitting—
yes, plopped on his backside, right there in the middle of the most important
clay-court stadium in the world—Nadal raised his left arm to slice a backhand
drop shot that prolonged the point and drew Ferrer forward. As if that werent
impressive enough, Nadal popped up like a jack-in-the-box in time for the next
shot, a volley-lob that arced over Ferrers head and settled near the baseline.
Ferrer, no slouch himself in the speed department, got to the ball, but his
forehand landed in the net. That gave Nadal a break point, and he converted it
in much more conventional fashion, staying upright until Ferrer simply pushed a
forehand long. “Both of us were playing more or less the same type of tennis,
but then he started to become more and more aggressive,” Ferrer said. “There was
nothing I could do to fight back.” Federer appeared to feel that way, too,
particularly after Djokovic broke him four times in the second set. At the start
of that set, Federer actually appeared to get going. He broke to go ahead 1-0 in
a game that featured a particularly compelling, 38-stroke point. Federer hit a
drop shot that Djokovic slid and stretched to get, the ball an inch or so off
the ground; Federer replied with a lob that sent Djokovic sprinting to the
baseline for a no-look, back-to-the-net, between-the-legs passing shot; Federer
knocked home a volley winner. Djokovic, chest heaving, smiled as he went to
towel off. A year ago in the French Open semifinals, Federer snapped Djokovics
43-match winning streak in a four-set thriller. On Friday, Vajda explained
afterward, Djokovic was determined to play “extremely patient … not rushing.”
Worked wonders. Increasingly confounded by his opponent and the swirling wind,
Federer made a very un-Federer-like 46 unforced errors. Djokovic made 17. “I was
struggling to sort of keep the ball in play,” said Federer, who is 30 and nearly
2 1/2 years removed from his most recent major championship. “When youre down
two sets to love against Novak, its not the same match anymore. He goes for
broke and there is no more fear.” Asked to size up Sundays final, Federer didnt
hesitate. “I obviously pick Rafa,” Federer said. “I think hes the overwhelming
favourite.” If Djokovic wins his first French Open final, he will join Don Budge
in 1938, and Rod Laver in 1962 and 1969, as winners of four Grand Slam trophies
in succession. Budge and Laver went 4 for 4 within a calendar year each time.
Federer twice came close to doing what Djokovic hopes to accomplish: In 2006 and
2007, Federer entered the French Open final needing one win for a fourth
consecutive major title. Federers opponent each time? Nadal, naturally. One
significant difference: Federer is 10-18 against Nadal, including 2-6 in Grand
Slam finals; Djokovic is 14-18 overall against Nadal, but 3-1 in Grand Slam
finals. Djokovic won all six matches he played against Nadal in 2011, then made
it seven straight with their 5-hour, 53-minute epic final at the Australian
Open. Nadal, though, has won their two meetings since, both on clay in May.
“Theres a lot on the line. It always is, when youre playing finals of a Grand
Slam,” Djokovic said. “Considering the matches that we played against each other
in last 15 months, we expect another emotional match, another big challenge for
both of us, fighting for one of the four biggest titles in our sport.” ’ ’ ’
