"We played great hockey for 37 minutes

MELBOURNE, Australia - Canadian Eugenie Bouchard crushed Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-0, 6-3 on Wednesday to reach the third round of the Australian Open for a second straight year. Patrik Elias Devils Jersey .The seventh seed from Westmount, Que., needed just 54 minutes to defeat the 72nd-ranked Bertens in their first career meeting.Bouchard rolled through the opening set in just 23 minutes against an opponent who is now 0-5 versus top-10 opponents.Two of Bertens three game wins came on breaks of Bouchards serve, including when the Canadian was first serving for the match.Bouchard finished with six breaks of serve and 20 winners as she won a second consecutive match on the Margaret Court showcase arena.I think I put pressure on her a lot and I think probably forced her to make some errors, said Bouchard. I was happy with the way I was able to step in and control the points, whether I did the winner or she did the error.In the end I think thats how I want to play. Just need to stay a bit more focused at the end to try to close it out. More on my terms.Bertens briefly made a match of it in the second set, but fell behind despite breaking Bouchard in the opening game of the second set and losing the lead a game later.I lost my focus a bit, thats unacceptable, said the 20-year-old. Ill make sure it wont happen again. I can be hard on myself, Im a perfectionist.Its fun to play here at night, its a special atmosphere, added Bouchard. Im glad I was finally able to hold my serve — and hold my serve at the end.Bouchard, who broke through to the semifinals in Melbourne and Paris last season before playing in the Wimbledon final, is now 7-1 in Australia.Bouchard will play in the third round against Frances Caroline Garcia, who beat Swiss player Stefanie Voegele 6-3, 6-4, coached by her own former mentor Nathalie Tauziat.I worked with Nathalie a little bit, I guess thats how the tennis world is, said the Canadian. Its a small world.Its kind of musical chairs in terms of coaching. Im sure it wont be the last time in my career. It wont really bother me. Im not playing against the coach, Im playing against the player.Im not going to worry about it. Im still friendly with Nathalie, so its all good.In mens doubles, the 13th-seeded duo of Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil and Austrias Julian Knowle opened with a 7-6 (3), 3-6, 7-6 (4) victory over Germanys Jan-Lennard Struff and Dominic Thiem of Austria.Pospisil won the Wimbledon doubles title last summer with American Jack Sock, who is still recovering from hip surgery.Torontos Daniel Nestor is playing with Indias Rohan Bopanna this season. The seventh-seeded duo will open against Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus and Marinko Matosevic of Australia.Nestor and Bopanna won their first title together last weekend in Sydney. Ken Daneyko Devils Jersey . -- The Minnesota Vikings are struggling both on and off the field. Damon Severson Jersey .ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams.The Winnipeg Jets are desperate to end their longest losing streak under head coach Paul Maurice and they hope to take advantage of the ice-cold Vancouver Canucks in Wednesdays home game at MTS Centre. Catch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt and TSN Radio 1290 at 6:30pm ct/4:30pm pt. The Jets and Canucks both have 68 points on the season, leaving them six points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. Neither club has done itself any favors in the postseason chase of late, as Winnipeg has lost four in a row while the Canucks have dropped five of six and 12 of their last 14 games. Vancouver has actually lost 21 of 27 games dating back to late December, and the clubs most recent setback did not inspire confidence the club is ready to break out of the lengthy slump. The Canucks led a visiting New York Islanders club 3-0 after two periods on Monday before giving up a whopping seven goals over the final 20 minutes of regulation to lose the tilt by a 7-4 count. Chris Higgins, Christopher Tanev, Ryan Kesler and Henrik Sedin all scored for the Canucks, while Eddie Lack gave up six goals on 27 shots in the collapse. "We should have had this game," said Sedin. "We played great hockey for 37 minutes but then we started making poor decisions. We should have been back in the race but now were down and looking up." Lack is expected to start in goal.  His record is 1-1 against the Jets this season, with a 2.94 goals-against average and .900 save percentage. The Canucks will try to put their latest disappointment behind them when they kick off a four-game road trip tonight. Vancouver, however, has lost seven straight as the guest and is just 13-17-4 on the road this season.http://www.hockeydevilsshop.us/Jamie-Langenbrunner-Jersey/. . The clubs last victory away from Vancouver was on Jan. 21 in Edmonton. The Jets had lost four straight against the Canucks before posting a 4-3 home win on Jan. 31. That victory gave Winnipeg a 7-2-0 record since Maurice replaced Claude Noel as head coach, but the club is just 4-3-3 in the 10 games following that win. Winnipeg lost for the sixth time in eight outings Monday in Colorado, although the Jets were able to record a point in the overtime loss. Matt Duchene scored 2:33 into the extra session to lift the Avalanche to the 3-2 decision. Duchene lost control of the puck after twirling out of the corner. Winnipeg defenseman Tobias Enstrom tried to chip the puck away from the crease area, but it hit Duchene and the Avalanche forward scored on a backhand. "He got position at the net. The puck came right back to him and a guy like that, he will not miss those," Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien said of Duchene. Byfuglien scored both Winnipeg goals, with Bryan Little notching an assist on each score. Al Montoya took the loss despite stopping 31-of-34 shots. Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal this evening.  He has a 1-3 record lifetime against Vancouver with a 3.04 goals-against average and .910 save percentage. Winnipeg, which hasnt made the playoffs since the franchise relocated from Atlanta prior to the 2011-12 season, hopes to boost its postseason chances during a home-heavy part of its schedule over the next week and a half. The Jets, who are 15-13-5 as the host this season, are beginning a three-game homestand on Wednesday and will play five of their next six games at MTS Centre. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
