INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- Third-seeded Victoria Azarenka tumbled out of the BNP Paribas Open on Friday night in her first match in more than a month, falling 6-0, 7-6 (2) to American Lauren Davis. Azarenka, from Belarus, had been sidelined since the Australian Open because of a left foot injury that required her to wear a boot for several weeks. The two-time Australian Open champion, hampered by nerve damage between her toes, limped visibly at times, had trouble serving, fell to her knees several times, broke a racket after double-faulting to fall behind 4-3 in the second set, and fought back tears. "Basically, all I had was my fighting spirit," Azarenka said. "When Im on the court I try to give as much as I can, even on one leg. I try to do my best in tough situations. Thats part of our job." She isnt sure if shell try to play in the Sony Open in Florida in 10 days. "I want to be pain-free because its not to the most fun to be out there like that," Azarenka said. Most of the other second-round matches were routine. Second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland got it started by beating qualifier Heather Watson of Britain 6-4, 6-3. Later in the day session, No. 6 Simona Halep, No. 7 Jelana Jankovic, No. 9 Sara Errani and No. 10 Caroline Wozniacki were straight-set winners. Two-time tournament champion Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, seeded 29th, fell to American Varvara Lepchenko, 6-3, 6-2. No. 18 Eugenie Bouchard of Montreal downed Chinas Shuai Peng 6-2, 6-2, and Toronto-born Sharon Fichman fell to Italys Sara Errani 6-1, 6-1. Meanwhile, with the men finishing their first round, Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka, the 2008 Olympic doubles gold medallists for Switzerland, teamed up again for a 6-2, 6-7 (4), (10-6) victory over Rohan Bopanna of India and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan in a match played in the new 8,000-seat Stadium 2. "I dont know if it was sold out, but it felt like very, very full," said Federer, a four-time singles champion at Indian Wells. "Youre not probably going to achieve that on centre court (where capacity is 16,100) for a doubles. But that was a perfect setup, a feeling, and we can thank the tournament and (owner) Larry Ellison for building such a court so quickly. "Its nice to see the game grow and seeing people coming out and enjoying it. Its great. I really had a great time out there with Stan today." Wawrinka is the Australian Open champion. "It took me time to realize really what I did in Australian Open," said Wawrinka, who is the No. 3 seed and could meet No. 7 Federer in the quarterfinals and top-seeded Rafael Nadal in the semifinals. "Still when Im saying that I won a Grand Slam its still strange for me, but thats why it was good to be home during three weeks. It was good to be with the family, to take more time for myself. Wawrinkas second-round opponent will be Ivo Karlovic of Croatia, and Federer will open his title bid against French qualifier Paul-Henry Mathieu. Wawrinka and Federer both will play Saturday afternoon. In other first-round doubles action, Americans Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears downed Fichman and her American partner Megan Moulton-Levy 7-6 (4), 6-2. Spaniards David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco defeated Vernon, B.C., native Vasek Pospisil and his partner Pablo Andujar of Spain 7-6 (4), 6-3. On Saturday night, Nadal will take on Radek Stepanek. Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Juan Martin del Potro, Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga are the other top-10 players competing in doubles. David Savard Blue Jackets Jersey .

Cam Atkinson Blue Jackets Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Alexander Wennberg Blue Jackets Jersey Authentic . The Austrian ski federation said Morgenstern was "conscious and well responsive" and his condition would be monitored in the intensive care unit of a Salzburg hospital for the next 72 hours. The federation said it was "way too early" to judge Morgensterns chances of competing in Sochi, and that an update on his condition was not expected before Monday.Leicester City have the edge over their rivals and deserve to win the Premier League title, according to Sir Alex Ferguson. Having dramatically avoided relegation last season, the Foxes, who currently hold a five-point advantage over second-placed Tottenham, stand on the brink of one of the most unlikely title victories in English football history.Manchester Uniteds legendary former manager knows a thing or two about the title run-in, having claimed 13 top-flight crowns during his glittering 26-year stint in the Old Trafford hot-seat. And, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Ferguson says Claudio Ranieris energetic side deserve to end their remarkable season with silverware.Leicester have got the bit between their teeth, theyve been the best team without question throughout the season and they deserve to win it, he said.You would think their inexperience would count, but Leicester have unbelievable energy and togetherness that suggests theyre going to see it through. Leicester have got the bit between their teeth, they’ve been the best team without question throughout the season and they deserve to win the Premier League. Sir Alex Ferguson For instance, theyve won their last few games 1-0. I had a season at United where we had eight 1-0 victories and that won us the league.Those 1-0s are really important because it points out to me that they are a unit, theyre not going to lose.They have a determination about them and they are not afraid of the situation they find themselves in, which is important. Leicester have won four of their last five league games 1-0, the latest coming away to Crystal Palace I dont see any nerves and thats down to the manager, hes brought a calming influence. Its fantastic, they are a breath of fresh air and its great for the game.Leicesters title credentials have been questioned continually throughout the season but their composed and consistent performances have won their critics around.With just seven games of the season remaining, Ferguson believes the Foxes face the most testing period of their campaign, highlighting Tottenham as the biggest threatt to their title hopes.dddddddddddd Tottenham are the only team capable of catching Leicester, according to Ferguson As such, the Scot has urged Ranieris side to stick to the principles that have moved them to within touching distance of the title.Leicester are nearing the finishing line, that is the biggest task, Ferguson added.They have to remain consistent to what theyve done, there is no point changing what theyve been doing for the previous six months. Leicester City fans sing were gonna win the league after beating Crystal Palace 1-0 away at Selhurst Park There will be testing times for them and they have to come to terms with the fact they will drop a point or two - they may even lose a game. But others will drop points, thats the nature of the Premier League, its a tough league.I only see Tottenham being a danger to Leicester. Tottenham, at the moment, are playing some of the best football Ive seen from a Spurs team in many years. But Leicester have got the edge. I think theyll get there.Watch Leicester City v Southampton live on Super Sunday, 1.30pm, Sky Sports 1 HD Also See: Fergie: Pep faces tough task Leicester have title experience Vardy focus now on Leicester Leicesters unsung heroes Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2019 NFL Jerseys Cheap ' ' '
