NEW HAVEN, Conn. Mariano Diaz Jersey . -- Caroline Wozniacki found another way to win at the New Haven Open, where she has lost just one match in six years. The fourth seed advanced to the second round Monday when Peng Shuai was forced to retire while up a set on the four-time tournament champion. Peng was leading 6-2, 1-3 when the chair umpire announced the Chinese player could not continue due to illness. Tournament officials later said she was suffering from dizziness. Peng, who has a history of heart problems, spent an extended time with a trainer after Wozniacki asked for a coach while leading 3-0 in the second set. WTA officials said Peng was examined by medical personnel after the match, but had no further details. The 27-year-old pursued a pro tennis career despite having heart surgery when she was 12 years old. Her ordeal was the subject of an Adidas advertising campaign, "Impossible is Nothing." "She felt a bit dizzy and obviously from the flight and everything, she played the doubles finals in Cincinnati last night," Wozniacki said. "Flying in here and having to play the same day is obviously tough." Peng broke Wozniacki twice in the first set. But Wozniacki seemed to turn things around in the second game of the second set, which included seven deuces and Peng holding an advantage five times. "I just kept playing," she said. "I tried not to think about the score too much, because with her, you never know. I just really thought, One point at a time." Wozniacki, seeded fourth in the tournament, improved to 21-1 in her six years in New Haven. Her only loss here came in last years semifinals when she retired due to a knee injury. "Its a great tournament for me, what else can I say," she said. "Its my sixth time here. Its ridiculous." Earlier, American Sloane Stephens beat Anna Schmiedlova of Slovakia 6-4, 6-4. The sixth-seeded Stephens, the top-ranked American in the draw, broke Schmiedlova in the third game of the match, while reeling off 13 straight points. The two traded breaks in the second set until Stephens held serve to go up 4-2. She will play German Julia Goerges in the second round. Goerges advanced with a 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 win over Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia. Stephens, who beat Serena Williams to reach the semifinals of the Australian Open in January and made the quarterfinals of Wimbledon in July, came into the match ranked 17th in the world. Two years ago, she came into New Haven ranked 110th and lost in qualifying. Stephens said shes been able to stay grounded with the help of some friends, including tennis legend Billie Jean King, who sends her texts before every big match. "She says, Pressure is a privilege," Stephens said. "I think its one of the strongest statements Ive heard." Fifth-seeded Roberta Vinci of Italy was the tournaments first upset victim, losing 7-5, 6-3 to Carla Suarez Navarro. The Spaniard will next play Romanian Simona Halep, who beat Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, 6-2, 6-1. The 21-year-old Halep has already won three tournaments this year and is coming off an appearance in the quarterfinals in Cincinnati, where she lost to the top-ranked Williams. Halep feels shes peaking at the right time. "My game its very good now; I have more confidence in me," she said. "I have to enjoy (next weeks) U.S. Open, because at the Grand Slams, I didnt play so well this year." Eighth-seeded Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia, ranked 19th in the world, also lost. She was beaten by Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. Ekaterina Makarova downed Montreals Aleksandra Wozniak 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (5). Other winners Monday included Russians Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Elena Vesnina, Mayo Hibi of Japan, qualifier Monica Puig of Puerto Rico and Karin Knapp of Italy. Defending champion Petra Kvitova was to play Polands Urzula Radwanska in the final match of the day. But Radwanska was forced to withdraw with what was described as a viral illness and was replaced by Annika Beck of Germany. The match was then postponed a day because of rain, which also delayed the start of the Peng-Wozniacki match by two hours. Kvitova, who has made the quarterfinals of the last three events she played, is using this tournament to help prepare for the humidity in New York next week, which she says wreaks havoc with her asthma. "I never like playing in America, because of my asthma," she said. "But last year I played quite well, I won two titles, so it was a pretty good year, so I know that I can play good here." Jesus Vallejo Jersey . Its not intended to be some magical formula and doesnt apply any context, like, for example, taking injuries into account. This remedial statistical method has gone 9-5 in picks through the first three rounds. Toni Kroos Jersey . Wawrinka, who is seeded fourth, is in the top half of the draw with Serbian Novak Djokovic. The Swiss star outlasted Djokovic in a five-set quarterfinal thriller last year and stunned Spaniard Rafael Nadal in the final to capture his first-ever Grand Slam title. http://www.realmadridfcprohop.us/Kiko-Casilla-Real-Madrid-Jersey/ . - Buffalo Bills running back C.INDIANAPOLIS - Chuck Pagano could blame New England for one of his most bitter football memories.On the other hand, that loss also opened a new chapter in Paganos life.Now, three years after that stinging 23-20 championship game loss against the Patriots, the former Baltimore Ravens defensive co-ordinator is getting a second chance to earn a Super Bowl ticket at New England — this time as the Indianapolis Colts head coach.We wouldnt be having this discussion right now had things transpired in a different way, Pagano said as Indianapolis prepares for Sundays AFC championship game.He has often contended that if the Ravens won that day — on Lee Evans near-touchdown catch with 27 seconds left or in overtime, if Billy Cundiff had made a 32-yard field goal with 15 seconds to go — that he never would have landed in Indy (13-5).General manager Ryan Grigson didnt go that far this week, though he did recall watching the game and going through some old notes about Pagano almost immediately after Cundiffs kick sailed wide left. Within 24 hours, Grigson had contacted Ravens coach John Harbaugh for permission to interview Pagano, who was still angry.The bitterness was still emanating from him, even when we brought him in, Grigson said. So that game was his loss, but our gain because when he finally came in, it was evident to all of us in that room that this was the right guy.Three days after the game, Pagano accepted his first head coaching job.At first, the outlook looked bleak.The Colts were in the midst of a salary-cap purge and about embarked on one of the most ambitious rebuilding projects. They started by releasing a bevy of fan favourites including the seemingly untouchable Peyton Manning. Pagano now jokes that at one point he looked around his office and asked his wife, Tina, what the heck did we just do?Grigson never asked the same question about a man he viewed as a leader that could pull the best out of his players.Pagano proved to be everything Grigson envisioned and more, on and off the field.He helped convince Reggie Wayne, one of his old college players, to stick around for a hometown discount. He helped recruit defensive tackle Arthur Jones and defensive end Cory Redding, both starters who were in the Ravens locker room that awful day in New England, as free agents. It didnt take much of a push.I know what kind of guy he is,, stand-up guy, shoots it straight to you, fun, energetic at practice, expects a lot out of you in the meeting rooms to know your stuff, Redding said, explaining why he left a championship contender to join a team that went 2-14 the year before he came. Raphael Varane Jersey. . Knowing the system, knowing him, it was just easy for me to make the decision.It turned out the Colts incredible turnaround was about a lot more than just wins and losses.Three games into Paganos tenure, he was diagnosed with leukemia.Pagano spent 25 days at the IU Health Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis as longtime friends Wayne, Redding and Bruce Arians and new friends such as Robert Mathis, Andrew Luck, Grigson and team owner Jim Irsay rallied the team. After returning home, the treatments continued for two more months.The team responded to Paganos absence by winning nine times, none more electrifying than the second-half comeback against Green Bay when Wayne caught 13 passes for a career high 212 yards and the winning score with 35 seconds left. Irsay and Grigson hand-delivered the game ball to Pagano at the hospital.I cant imagine being anywhere else and having a city and a community embrace somebody they hardly know, Pagano said when he returned to the team complex on Christmas Eve. I just think thats how we roll in this great state, this great city and this great community.And Pagano just kept winning.Indy completed one its nine-game improvement over the 2011 season by winning in Paganos first game back on the sideline. The Colts have won 11 more regular-season games each of the past two seasons, the last two AFC South titles and here playoff games.But those who were with Pagano in Baltimore know thats not good enough yet.That loss lingered the whole off-season, said Jones, who was part of Baltimores 2013 world championship team. It was a tough way to end your year after making it that far. It bothers you.So this week with a second shot, Pagano is taking none at the Patriots.Hes just focused on trying to get the biggest win — and best memory — of his coaching career.Its about the game, its about the team, its about us doing our job, Pagano said Monday. We know how great a team were going to play. Youve got a Hall of Fame coach, a Hall of Fame quarterback and a bunch of great players on both sides of the ball. Its going to be a tall order.
