With the Rogers Cup set to take place in Montreal next week, Blainville, Quebecs Aleksandra Wozniak reflects on preparing for the event in her home province with her personal blog on RDS. Trent Alexander-Arnold Jersey .ca and TSN.ca. I took a few days off after Wimbledon, but now Im back in training - seven hours a day, six days a week. Ive finished my preparation for the tournament at Stanford before returning to Quebec for the Rogers Cup. And Ive spent a lot of time on the field and in the gym. Im really happy to go play at Stanford, a place where Ive kept some precious memories. This is where, in 2008, I won my first title on the WTA Tour at age 20. This time, Im going through qualification before I get to see my name on the main board - an event that will feature top seed Serena Williams. It seems that when a tennis player returns to play in a tournament that he or she has already won, the organizers generally give some more attention to that former champion. Sometimes youre entitled to special treatment because theyre happy to know youre returning. There are certainly a lot of tournaments in a year and each player usually has an established route for the season. Sometimes the former champions dont return to where theyvewon. But as a former champion, I keep so many great memories and beautiful thoughts it feels good to go back. Not to mention that Stanford University is beautiful, with a great atmosphere and people who love tennis. Theyre true enthusiasts and its nice to play there. I was also very happy to learn that the organizers of the Rogers Cup gave me a pass for the tournament, which begins next week in Montreal. Ive supported Tennis Canada for several years and they believe in me, knowing all the efforts that I put in to heal my injured right shoulder. Tennis Canada knows that I work hard to improve my lot in the sport. I was 378th in the world but now Im up at 103rd. There was a time when I was one of the few Canadians on the professional tour, but I continued to get great support along with other new players. Going through the qualification stage doesnt bother me, but I am very pleased with this pass in Montreal. Upon my return to competition, the most important thing was playing as many events as possible just to get into shape. I hadnt played for a year and wanted to find my bearings and rebuild my confidence. Then when you start winning more regularly, its good to get to play in places like Montreal. And the Rogers Cup is my favorite tournament. When I was younger, my parents took me to this tournament so I could see my idol Monica Seles in action. Watching her in my hometown made me want to be like her. It made me dream. And its great for encouraging young people to play tennis. And of course, I get to play at home - where I reached the quarterfinal round two years ago and was the first Canadian in 20 years to get that far in the tournament. It will be very fun to play at home in front of family and sponsors, not to mention the fans who bring a beautiful energy. Ill try to play my best tennis for my supporters and go as far as possible against the best in the world. I would like to repeat what I did two years ago, taking one game at a time. And of course, Eugenie Bouchards success in the WTA is spilling over in courts across the country. With Eugenie and others making their mark, were demonstrating to the world that Canadians wont be easy prey and were very competitive. A few years ago, I was the only Canadian in the Top 50. Today, we have Eugenie and Sharon Fichman - not to mention the guys! All of these good performances are inspiring our youngest to play tennis. I am very pleased to see Eugenie succeed on the world stage. We all work very hard to climb to the top and we do it our own way. I reached 21st in the world a few years ago but unfortunately, injuries slowed my progress. But Im a very persistent and determined girl and will continue my journey by staying focused on my career. A heavy loss - Dr. Francis Jean Its with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Dr. Francis Jean, the founder of The Iris Visual Group. They were my first major sponsor, well before my win at Stanford. Francis believed in me and always encouraged me - even when things werent going so well. He sent me little words of encouragement and was very active in the tennis world. He was a true sports enthusiast and was loved by all. My deepest sympathies to his entire family. https://www.facebook.com/WozAlekshttp://...iak.com/Twitter @alekswoz Alberto Moreno Jersey . The 10-horse field of 3-year-old pacers will leave the starting gate at approximately 10:14pm et. Co-owned and trained by David Menary, Hes Watching will be driven by Tim Tetrick and is the 5-1 fourth selection in the field. Jon Flanagan Jersey . It was the most lopsided loss in Lakers history. Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; theyve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points. http://www.soccerliverpoolproshop.com/c-1-customized.aspx . - This is just the warm-up act for 18-year-old William Nylander.Gujarat Lions fell to a heavy first defeat in the 2016 IPL, suffering a 10-wicket hammering at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad in Rajkot. David Warner struck 74 from 48 balls, while opening partner Shikhar Dhawan hit 53 off 41 as Sunrisers cruised to their 136-run target with 5.1 overs to spare.Suresh Raina earlier hit 75 from 51 balls for the hosts, but wickets regularly fell around him - Bhuvneshwar Kumar impressing with 4-29, making him the leading wicket-taker for the tournament.Sunrisers made comfortable work of the run-chase to win their second straight following defeats in their first two, while Gujarats unbeaten run comes to an end in their fourth game.

Georginio Wijnaldum Jersey. Sadly the former New Zealand skipper didnt last much longer though, holing out at deep midwicket off Bipul Sharma in the eighth over. While Raina went serenely through to a 34-ball fifty, only one other batsman managed double-figures in the innings - Ravi Jadeja notching a run-a-ball 14 - as Sunrisers took complete control of the contest.Mustafizur Rahman (1-19) bowled Jadeja in the 17th, while Kumar claimed a further three victims in his final over, including Raina.Gujarat were similarly sloppy with the ball at the start of Sunrisers reply, conceding 48 from the first four overs, Warner smashing Dale Steyn for three boundaries in one over.Warner blasted Raina for back-to-back fours in the final over of the powerplay and soon after moved through to a 29-ball fifty, his third for the tournament and second in a row.Dhawan went through to his own half century - off 40 balls - in the 15th over, with Warner hitting the winning runs a mere two balls later.
