MONTREAL —Adonis Stevenson has been forced to pull out of a fight with a hand
injury. A.J. Green Pink Jersey . Boxing promoter Yvon
Michel said Monday that Stevenson (18-1) bruised his left hand while sparring in
Detroit. That forced the Longueuil, Que., super-middleweight to withdraw from a
bout Friday night in Oklahoma against Don George (22-2-1). The elmination bout
was to determine the mandatory challenger for IBF champion Carl Froch. Michel
said Stevenson suffered no broken bones or ligament damage, but a doctor told
him to rest the hand at least 10 days to let the swelling heal. He said
organizers were looking for a replacement to face George for the bout that is to
be televised in the U.S. on ESPN2. Stevenson-George was originally scheduled for
Aug. 11 in Montreal, but the entire fight card was scrapped when Jean Pascal was
forced to pull out of an IBF light heavyweight title fight with Tavoris Cloud.
Pascal had also suffered a hand injury. Michel said Stevenson is to face George
in October in Montreal. 13:06ET 13-08-12 A.J. Green Orange Jersey . General manager
Ben Cherington made the announcement during Saturday nights game against the
Kansas City Royals. According to the Boston Herald, Aceves was seen storming out
of manager Bobby Valentines office after Friday nights game, when Andrew Bailey
pitched the ninth inning for his first save of the season. Andy Dalton Jersey . Thats why so much that
happened in 2012 felt new and significant to them. All the regular-season wins
—a best-in-baseball 98—and the NL East title, the post-season highs and
lows, the intense attention to the decision to shut down Stephen Strasburg in
September. http://www.shopthecincinnatibengals.com/geno-atkins-jerseys
. Rosberg, who won the Chinese Grand Prix last week for his first Formula One
victory, clocked 1 minute, 32.816 seconds in his Mercedes around the
5.4-kilometre (3.4-mile) Bahrain International Circuit. That was about a
half-second quicker than Red Bull pair Mark Webber and two-time defending world
champion Sebastian Vettel. Terence Newman Jersey .C. —Yani Tseng and
Na Yeon Choi were feeling right at home in Vancouver during Thursdays opening
round of the Canadian Womens Open. Andy Dalton White Jersey .Y. —The Buffalo
Sabres have agreed to sign two prospects, forward Dan Catenacci and goalie
Connor Knapp, to entry-level contracts.STANFORD, Calif. —Serena Williams final
tuneup for the London Olympics will be an All-American affair. Williams
overpowered Romanias Sorana Cirstea 6-1, 6-2 in the Bank of the West Classic on
Saturday night to set up the first All-American WTA final on home soil in eight
years against lucky loser Coco Vandeweghe. “Its cool,” Williams said.
“Everybodys always asking about American players. Now we have a great player
like Coco whos doing well and she took her second chance to the ultimate degree.
Im really happy for her. Im glad shes American. Im so glad shes American. If she
goes all the way and wins (Sunday), I would be really, really happy for her.”
Exactly a week after winning her fifth Wimbledon title, Williams cruised to
another victory in 60 minutes. The quick work came despite Williams converting
only 38 per cent of her first serves, calling it “outrageous.” Williams hardly
sweated and returned to the court immediately after the match to practice her
serve. She will go for her second straight title at Stanford on Sunday against
Vandeweghe, who reached her first WTA Tour final with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 victory
against Belgiums Yanina Wickmayer. The 20-year-old American failed to make it
out of qualifying and only got into the main draw when Bojana Jovanovski
withdrew with an injury. The last “lucky loser” to advance to a WTA final was
eventual runner-up Melinda Czink in 2005 at Canberra, Australia. “Its a dream
come true for me being in the finals of a WTA event,” Vandeweghe said.
“Hopefully this is a good omen for the rest of the summer for me.” The last
American final at home on the WTA Tour came in 2004, when Lindsay Davenport
topped Williams in Los Angeles. Nobody seems to be able to slow Serena these
days. Still jet-lagged from travelling more than 5,000 miles and eight time
zones from the All England Club, Williams delivered her mosst impressive
performance of the week. Jermaine Gresham Jersey. The 14-time Grand
Slam champion sported a bright yellow shirt and black skirt that looked like one
giant blur on the California hard court. She slammed serves and flicked
forehands on every line, never needing to move much, turning the semifinal into
an Olympic practice session. Williams was hardly at her dominating best, but she
didnt need to be. Cirstea double-faulted on break point to give Williams a 3-1
lead in the first set, sailed a forehand wide in her only break opportunity—
in the next game, no less—and became the latest flustered and frustrated
Williams opponent. What Williams wont be happy about is the way she served.
After 102 aces carried her to victory on Wimbledons grass, she had more double
faults (four) than aces (three). Then again, her opponent had twice as many
double faults (eight) as aces (four) in the calm and crisp conditions. “I really
wasnt happy,” Williams said. “I did what was necessary to win. I did what I knew
I needed to do, and I think thats important.” Serving could be the deciding
factor in the finals. Vandeweghe broke Wickmayer in the opening game and pounded
12 total aces with a serve that topped 120 mph. She also won 31 of 36 points on
her first serve. Wickmayer double-faulted to hand Vandeweghe a service break to
go ahead 3-1 in the final set. Vandeweghe saved four break points in the next
game and watched Wickmayer double-fault again on match point. Vandeweghe dropped
her racket in disbelief, ran to the sideline and jumped into the arms of her
mother, former Olympic swimmer Tauna Vandeweghe. The 20-year-old from Southern
California had never even made a WTA semifinal until she knocked off Urszula
Radwanska of Poland 6-4, 6-4 a day earlier. Williams beat Vandeweghe in a World
TeamTennis match that ended in a nine-point tiebreaker at 5-all last summer in
their only meeting. ’ ’ ’
