MANCHESTER, England—Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says theres “no

Premier League opener against Southampton. Terrell Suggs Jersey . The Argentina
international fell awkwardly following a challenge on Sunday by Southampton
defender Nathaniel Clyne and came off in the 14th minute of the match at Etihad
Stadium. Aguero says on Twitter that “the studies I had done revealed theres no
significant injury but it was a very tough hit to my knee. Tomorrow, the
physicians will evaluate the time it will take for me to recover.” After Citys
3-2 win, City manager Roberto Mancini says he was “worried” about Agueros injury
without having seen the results of the medical scans. Torrey Smith Youth Jersey . Bennett buried a

. A drizzle was now a downpour, making the
balls heavy, the clay court slippery and changing the complexion of a match with
so much at stake: Djokovics bid to become the first man in 43 years to win four
consecutive Grand Slam titles, and Nadals attempt to become the first man to win
seven titles at the tournament. http://www.ravensproshop.com/anquan-boldin-jerseys

NHL Draft.PARIS—A year ago in the French Open semifinals, Roger Federer put a
stop to Novak Djokovics 43-match winning streak. That also was the last time
Djokovic lost at any Grand Slam tournament. When the two men meet at the same
stage at Roland Garros on Friday, 16-time major champion Federer once again
stands in Djokovics way, with even more at stake. This time, Djokovic will be
seeking a 27th consecutive major match victory, which would leave him one shy of
becoming the first man in 43 years to win four Grand Slam titles in a row. “I
will try to be out there believing I can win,” said the No. 1-ranked Djokovic,
who won Wimbledon in July, the U.S. Open in September and the Australian Open in
January. “There is no (real) favourite.” Fridays other semifinal features
someone else pursuing history: No. 2 Rafael Nadal, who faces No. 6 David Ferrer,
is hoping to earn a record seventh French Open trophy, which would break a tie
with Bjorn Borg. Nadal is 50-1 at Roland Garros, the only loss coming in the
fourth round in 2009 against Robin Soderling. “How discouraging is it to play
Nadal on this surface? ... When Borg played, in my day, he was like the human
backboard. He was faster than everyone, fitter than everyone, and you couldnt
get a ball by the guy,” said seven-time Grand Slam champion John McEnroe, whose
rivalry with Borg is among the best tennis ever offered. “I saw guys get
exhausted in the first set. ... Its like the same thing when you play Nadal.”
Nadal has won all 15 sets hes played in Paris this year. Hes won 60 of his 61
service games, saving 16 of 17 break points. None of the same sort of drama that
Djokovic and Federer created during their progression to the semifinals—both
needed to come back from two-set deficits—and have managed to produce in
their past two Grand Slam matches against each other. In 2011 at the French
Open, Djokovic was unbeaten, and looking rather unbeatable, until a four-set
thriller against Federer, whose 18th ace ended their semifinal as dusk was
descending. If a fifth set had been necessary, they would have returned the next
day to finish things. Three months later, in the U.S. Open semifinals, Djokovic
erased a two-set deficit and two match points, the first with a wildly risky
forehand return winner that caught a line and drew a bit of a rebuke from
Federer afterward. Ed Reed Jersey. Three months later, in the
U.S. Open semifinals, Djokovic erased a two-set deficit and two match points,
the first with a wildly risky forehand return winner that barely caught the line
and drew a bit of a rebuke from Federer afterward. “I never played that way,”
Federer said that day. “I believe in the hard-works-going-to-pay-off kind of
thing, because early on, maybe I didnt always work at my hardest. So for me,
this is very hard to understand how can you play a shot like that on match
point. But, look, maybe hes been doing it for 20 years, so for him it was very
normal. Youve got to ask him.” Djokovic fought off another match point, as well,
and with the crowd suddenly on his side, took the last four games. Afterward,
Djokovic said he thought the match was lost and conceded that he couldnt really
explain that first match point. Fast-forward to his French Open quarterfinal
this week, and Djokovic pulled off the same sort of escape, saving four match
points en route to getting past No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France. If Djokovic
goes on to win the French Open—joining Don Budge in 1938, and Rod Laver in
1962 and 1969 as winners of four major titles in succession—those six match
points certainly will stand out. “When you make shots like that, and you win
matches like that, you sort of go down in, like, the folklore, in the history
books. It puts you at a level where suddenly you could be talked about as like
one of the greatest players that ever lived,” McEnroe said. “I really respect
the ability of a guy like Novak to find a way to be able to pull stuff like that
off.” Budge and Laver went 4 for 4 at Grand Slam tournaments within a calendar
year. So there are those who quickly point out that Djokovics feat wouldnt be
considered a true Grand Slam, because its spread over two seasons. Would be
quite impressive nonetheless, though. “If he was able to win four in a row? Man,
Id take four in a row any day. Its not technically the Grand Slam,” McEnroe
said, “but Id come up with some statue or something that said I had four in a
row, and Id be parading it around my house for the rest of my life.” ’ ’ ’
