WHITEHORSE —Canada earned some redemption at the ISF Womens World
Championships on Wednesday night. Champ Bailey Jersey . Matching up against
Australia for the first time since losing the bronze medal match to them at the
Canadian Open in Surrey, B.C., Canada had one of their best outings of the
tournament. Star pitcher Danielle Lawrie and veteran short stop Jennifer Salling
were absent in that loss but each of them were in town for Wednesday nights
re-match. Their presence provided an immediate impact for the team. Lawrie,
whose younger brother is Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie, pitched a
complete game, blanking the Aussies over seven innings and collecting 11 strike
outs in a 2-0 win. Lawrie said her transition back onto the team was made easy
due to the play of veteran catcher, Kaleigh Rafter. “I felt really comfortable
with her, which is huge,” she said. “There wasnt one moment out there where she
wasnt calling what I wanted and thats so important. As a pitcher, I cant stress
that enough.” Salling was equally impressive, patrolling the infield and gunning
out the speedy Australian team on the base paths. She also helped seal the win
by bringing home the second run of the night in the bottom of the sixth inning.
“Australia is a very credible team,” she said. “Theyve got good pitching, good
hitting and good defence. Theyre a scrappy team so it always good to get a win
off of them.” Both Salling and Lawrie said theyve been paying attention to the
tournament while playing for their U.S. based professional teams and theyre
impressed with the way the Canada has performed. “Weve got a good combination of
young and old players,” said Salling. “The young one have come in like theyve
been here before and they are fitting in really nicely.” With round-robin play
wrapping up Thursday, the win helped solidify Canadas standing in Section B of
the tournament. Japan leads the division with a 6-0 record while Canada and
Australia follow at 5-1 and 4-2. Canada head coach, Mark Smith, described the
win as a “statement game.” “We expected when we started the round robin that it
would be between ourselves, Japan and Australia for first and second in the
pool,” he said. “Historically weve been very close with Australia so this was an
important game for us. Its a very good win.” Rafter brought in the first run of
the game, sending Joey Lye home from second base a with a deep single to centre
field. Canada would add one more in the sixth inning. With Victoria Haywood on
third with one out, Salling was able to bring the run across with a grounder
down the first base line. “Tonight we looked like the team were capable of
being,” said Smith. “We just need to carry that through in the next four or five
days.” Canada will conclude round-robin play with a match up against Italy
Thursday night. Tim Tebow Broncos Jersey .  Lochte was the
heavy favourite to win the event, having won gold at both the 2008 Olympic Games
as well as the 2011 World Championships.  The question of Thursday night was
supposed to be whether the 27-year-old would have anything left, after winning
the mens 200m backstroke, to pull off a second win in the mens 200m IM just a
half hour later. John Elway Jersey .  The series tips off
tomorrow (Tuesday, June 12) at 8 p.m. ET on TSN, with the network producing a
special 30-minute pre-game show before every match-up (see complete broadcast
schedule below). Games are also available live on TSN Mobile TV and on the

. Oh, and give the winner a check for $195,000. South Koreans Jiyai Shin, Kim,
So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo dominated the leaderboard, sharing the top spot at
11-under 202 on Saturday through the third round. Peyton Manning Pink Jersey .S. Olympic team

Knicks can match any offer he receives. Peyton Manning Authentic Jersey . All
exhibition games for the Winnipeg Jets played at the MTS Centre will begin at
7pm ct. The Jets will open the seven-game exhibition schedule with a first-ever
visit to Rexall Place in Edmonton to face the Edmonton Oilers on Monday,
Sept.Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) – Wimbledon champion Roger Federer,
former Wimbledon titlist Novak Djokovic and last months runner-up at the All
England Club Andy Murray secured berths in the quarterfinals at the London
Olympics tennis event on Wednesday. The world No. 1 Federer was tested in the
first set en route to a 7-5, 6-3 third-round victory over Uzbekistans Denis
Istomin on Court 1 in this London suburb, where the Swiss icon has captured
seven Wimbledon championships, including his most-recent one just four weeks
ago. Federer moved on in 81 minutes, in a match that was interrupted by rain
with the score tied at 5-all in the first set, despite committing an
uncharacteristic 24 unforced errors over two sets. The Swiss great, however, was
broken only once en route to the predictable victory. The 30-year-old Federer
would complete a career “Golden Slam” with a gold- medal performance this week.
Federers quarterfinal opponent on Thursday will be 10th-seeded 6-foot-9 American
John Isner, who launched 22 aces in upsetting seventh-seeded Serb Janko
Tipsarevic 7-5, 7-6 (16-14). Isner shocked Federer in a Davis Cup match in
Switzerland back in February. The amazing Federer will not repeat as an Olympic
doubles champion, however, as he and Swiss partner Stan Wawrinka, slotted as the
sixth seeds, suffered a 1-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 second-round loss Wednesday at the
hands of unseeded Israelis Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram. Federer and Wawrinka
combined to capture gold in Beijing in 2008. The second-seeded Djokovic, who
recently lost the No. 1 ranking to Federer, needed all three sets to stave off
former top-ranked star Lleyton Hewitt of Australia, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1. The reigning
Australian and U.S. Open champion fired 16 aces before getting past Hewitt, who
captured a Wimbledon title himself back in 2002. Djokovic advanced in just under
two hours by breaking Hewitt foour times, compared to two breaks for the Aussie
veteran. Dennis Smith Jersey. “Incredible match,”
Djokovic said. “He started off really well. I dont think I have done anything
wrong in the first set. It was very close and could have gone either way. “Its
never that easy against Lleyton, hes one of the best returners ever to play the
game. It was a great test, its always a pleasure to play against him and I look
forward to the next challenge.” The 25-year-old Djokovic, a bronze medalist in
Beijing four years ago, will battle fifth-seeded marathon man Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
of France in the quarters. The third-seeded Wimbledon runner-up Murray dropped
the first set before fighting back to beat Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis 4-6, 6-1,
6-4 on Centre Court, where the Brit lost to Federer in last months Wimbledon
finale. Murray needed just under two hours to stave off the former Aussie Open
runner- up Baghdatis. The crowd favorite popped 13 aces and won 96 percent of
his second serves on Day 5. Next up for the Dunblane, Scotland native will be
sweet-swinging Spaniard Nicolas Almagro on Thursday. A surprising upset came
when 15th-seeded Japanese Kei Nishikori toppled fourth-seeded Spaniard David
Ferrer 6-0, 3-6, 6-4 on Centre Court. One day after outlasting Canadian Milos
Raonic in the longest-ever Olympic tennis match, the fifth-seeded Tsonga had an
easier time of it in a 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 victory over Spanish left-hander Feliciano
Lopez on Wednesday. Tsonga got past Raonic in an epic 48-game third set here on
Tuesday. Meanwhile, eighth-seeded Argentine slugger Juan Martin del Potro
defeated 12th-seeded Frenchman Gilles Simon 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 and an 11th-seeded
Almagro handled Belgian Steve Darcis 7-5, 6-3. Del Potro captured a U.S. Open
title in 2009 by stunning Federer in the final in New York. Del Potro will take
on the rising Nishikori on Thursday. ’ ’ ’
