Blainville, Quebecs Aleksandra Wozniak reflects on working with her new coach and her preparation for Roland Garros in her personal blog on RDS.ca and TSN.ca. Its been a few months since I officially began working with my coach Nathalie Tauziat. During my long absence from competition (due to my shoulder injury), it was my father - a former coach - who was by my side. Because I wasnt fully recovered and I hadnt had the opportunity to test my shoulder in game situations, my comeback in New Haven last August didnt appear wise. Tennis Canada then asked me to do a one-week trial in Florida with Nathalie shortly after the end of her stint with Eugenie Bouchard last October. We had our first experience working together two month later when Nathalie came to Boca Raton for the Fed Cup camp at Chris Everts Tennis Academy. And I felt good chemistry from the start - she made a great first impression. Under these new circumstances, I decided to continue my comeback, starting with the Shenzhen tournament and Melbourne qualifications. Then off to tournaments in Acapulco, Indian Wells and Miami. We get to know more during these tournaments while continuing my progress, which is still a big challenge after a long absence. Its an important adaptation for both the player and the coach. And Im glad I started this association. Its gone well and its helped me a lot - technically and strategically. As a former player - a World No. 3 and a finalist at Wimbledon in addition - she brings a lot of experience from the field. She brings me so much at all levels, including the right attitude to adapt, and we communicate really well. It was my father who taught me to play tennis. He taught me to recognize the feeling on the court and taught me the technique. Nathalie also works great on the same aspects, so I already felt comfortable with it. Even before the player-coach relationship, shes very friendly and open to working with anyone. She overcame many obstacles in her life and we share the same sense of perseverance. It takes character to achieve this level of competitiveness on the circuit. You have to fight every week and every game and keep a good attitude to remain at your best. Players like Maria Sharapova are successful because they have the attitude, character and they fight their challenges. Now were preparing for qualifying at Roland Garros. Im so happy to participate - I couldnt take part in my favorite Grand Slam last year because I was still undergoing rehabilitation. And I love the clay - my favorite playing surface! But I still have much work to do - like learning to slide at the right time, showing more patience and knowing when to play each type of ball. From a bigger viewpoint, Im still trying to find my game from before. Ive lost my feeling - my sense of anticipation and reaction - but now my bodys used to more tennis. Were working on the length of my ball, strategiesand my change of pace to have a more complete arsenal. Ive always been a complete player - thats to say I dont play only as flat as I can hit the ball early and make changes of pace. Its for these reasons that I was able to stay in the Top 50 in the past (as high as 21st in the world). By changing my pace and using an offensive style, I think I can beat highly-ranked players. Its important to have the as much strength as possible in this game. https://www.facebook.com/WozAlekshttp://...iak.com/Twitter @alekswoz Glenn Hall Jersey .

Hernandez (3-0) struck out 11 and shut down Oakland for the second time in a week, becoming the first Mariners pitcher to win three times in the first nine games of a season.

Corey Crawford Jersey . Interestingly, the culprits were not rookies, but well paid, experienced pros. The first gaffe came in the 24th minute of arguably the biggest early season MLS game in history between Seattle and Toronto. Sounder newcomer Marco Pappa, (with over 100 MLS games, and 39 Guatemalan Caps to his name) attempted a back pass to one of his central defenders.SAN FRANCISCO - The reliable southpaw is getting the ball for another important Game 1.Left-hander Madison Bumgarner will pitch the World Series opener for the San Francisco Giants at Kansas City on Tuesday.Manager Bruce Bochy made the expected announcement Saturday as his team worked out under sunny skies, one day before travelling. Bumgarner, an 18-game winner, was voted NL Championship Series MVP as the Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals in five games.Despite MadBums high innings, Bochy wasnt worried about the 18-game winner. Bumgarner didnt get a decision in the pennant clincher against the Cardinals on Thursday night.I think I wouldve insulted him if I checked with him, Bochy said. Hes a big, strong guy. His last game I thought he had great stuff. Its not like hes thrown 120-130 pitches. His workload has been under control.Bochy is keeping his rotation the same as the first two rounds of the post-season. Right-hander Jake Peavy will pitch Game 2 on Wednesday, followed by 39-year-old right-hander Tim Hudson in his World Series debut Thursday at AT&T Park and then righty Ryan Vogelsong.Yusmeiro Petit, who has twice provided a huge lift as a long man, will stay in his role as Bochy stuck with Vogelsong in the rotation.Petit in the job hes done in that role that weve had him in, you go back to Washington and without Petit its hard to say what would have happened, Bochy said. In St. Louis he went out there and gave us three big innings.dddddddddddd Hes a great swingman. Vogey, he threw a great game against Washington. He had a little bit of a hiccup but no, I didnt think about changing.Unused two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will make the roster. Bochy didnt expect to make any changes from the 25 players used in the NLCS.Lincecum pitched the Game 5 World Series clincher at Texas in 2010, then held a key role as a reliever in the 2012 championship run. Lincecum pitched his second no-hitter June 25 against San Diego but hasnt pitched since Sept. 28.Ive been thinking about Timmy, trust me, Bochy said. Timmys done a lot for us, and we know that.Lincecum was undergoing treatment for a a problem that developed overnight.Timmys got a stiff neck right now but we talked about him throwing to hitters today, Bochy said. Hell be back tomorrow, but hes still on the roster. I dont think its serious. ... Im pretty sure at some point hell be in the game.Bochy didnt announce a designated hitter, though Michael Morse is the obvious candidate. He has been unable to play left field and hasnt started since late August because of an oblique injury, but hit a tying pinch homer in the 6-3 Game 5 NLCS win.I havent got the order set, DH, Bochy said. Right now we dont have any plans to change our roster. Now that doesnt mean we cant change our mind as we look at this further.
