    Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.Third-seeded Gilles Muller of Luxembourg and
    sixth-seeded Adrian Mannarino of France reached the quarterfinals. Muller topped
    Victor Estrella Burgos of the Dominican Republic 7-6 (7), 6-4, and Mannarino
    rallied to edge Australias Sam Groth 7-6 , 6-3.The 31-year-old Baghdatis
    kissed the court when the match ended after giving a long embrace at the net to
    longtime friend Sela. The Cypriot is seeking his fifth career ATP title.We know
    each other from a very young age, Baghdatis said. A lot of emotions.Playing on
    the stadium court two days after calling a side court ridiculously bad, the
    28-year-old Mannarino lost the first three games of the opening set and fell
    behind 5-1 before rallying on Newports grass courts.The tournament is held on
    the grounds of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.Marat Safin and Justine
    Henin head the 2016 class thats set to be enshrined during a center-court
    ceremony Saturday.Play was delayed for nearly three hours by rain after
    Mannarino won the first set.Second-seeded Ivo Karlovic of Croatia, a finalist in
    Newport the last two year, had his quarterfinal match against Switzerlands Marco
    Chiudinelli postponed until Friday.Mannarino said that playing inside the
    stadium helped him relax.For sure, I know that the stadium court is much better
    than the other court, he said. I knew that today was going to be some real
    tennis on the court. Thats pretty important to me. If Im going to lose, Im going
    to because the guy was better than me. I dont like to lose because the
    conditions were ugly for the players.Once play resumed, Mannarino continued his
    strong play.I was just trying to focus on my game (during the delay) and what I
    have to do, he said. It worked pretty well. When I got back on court I was
    pretty consistent.Mannarino, the only Frenchman remaining in the field, was
    handed a French flag by a media member that wished him a Happy Bastille Day at a
    post-match press conference.On Tuesday, Mannarino said of a side court: The
    court is just ridiculously bad. Were playing (next to) the other court. Youve
    got the camera, the microphone on the court. You cant really move. This is
    really not respectful for the players to come, that kind of court.Mannarino
    entered the week ranked 55th on the ATP tour.

    . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means
    Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place,
    could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion
    on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either
    side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place
    United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones
    that forced them off.

    . First off, the fans ripped the Cubbies introduction of a
    fuzzy new kid-friendly mascot named "Clark".Vincent Lecavalier had a tough few
    days after his 14-year stint in Tampa Bay ended. His deal with Philadelphia
    helped soften the blow. Lecavalier and the Flyers officially announced their
    $22.5 million, five-year contract on Saturday. Lecavalier, a former Lightning
    captain, had some options as to where he wanted to chase a second Stanley Cup.
    Only 33, Lecavalier has plenty left to offer a contender — or even a team like
    the Flyers in the midst of an off-season overhaul after missing the playoffs.
    "Lets just say, Philly, with the meeting I had with them, thats the place I
    really wanted to go," he said Saturday. "I started off with, I dont want to say
    a pretty big list, but a list of about 10 teams, and right after I talked with
    Philly, even before any offers or anything, they went right to the top of the
    list. I just liked what they were saying." The Flyers offered one nice incentive
    — they dangled an opportunity to share a line with team captain Claude Giroux.
    Giroux signed his own eight-year extension worth over $64 million this week.
    Lecavalier will likely settle in on the second line, but could team with Giroux
    to provide a potent offensive push when the Flyers really need one. Had they
    teamed in their prime, they would have been one of the top 1-2 punches in the
    league. Lecavalier is willing to move to right wing to team up on the top line
    with Giroux at centre. "Its not something that I really worry about, especially
    when youre being told you might play with Claude Giroux," he said. "Im really
    open to that and Id be really excited about that." Tampa Bay cut ties with
    Lecavalier to clear space under a smaller salary cap. Lecavalier didnt mesh with
    Tampa Bays plans, or at least his contract didnt with seven years and $45
    million remaining on it. The four-time All-Star, drafted No. 1 overall by the
    Lightning in 1998, helped the franchise win the Stanley Cup in 2004 and scored a
    franchise-high 383 goals. By buying him out, it saved Tampa Bay more than $7.7
    million cap space for the upcoming season. The move cost them $32 million over
    14 years because he is due two-thirds the vvalue of his deal spread over twice
    the term of the contract.dddddddddddd He scored a league-high 52 times during
    the 2006-07 season and had 32 points in 39 games during the shortened season.
    Lecavalier, a 6-foot-4, 208-pound centre, had signed an 11-year deal with Tampa
    Bay in 2008. He had 10 goals and 32 points in 39 games last season for the
    Lightning. "He is going to be used in a position as one of our top forwards,"
    Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "I think he brings a lot of benefits to our
    offensive group as well as our power play and leadership. We will sort all of
    this out in training camp. But to bring an elite forward like this in to the mix
    is a welcome addition." Sure, Lecavalier liked the idea of becoming part of that
    mix. But he didnt have final say. "Vinny actually came into town with his wife
    prior to us agreeing on a contract," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said.
    "I think his wife gave him the thumbs-up on the area, liked the areas we have to
    live where the players are at. It just kind of went from there. The Flyers went
    23-22-3 and were 10th in the Eastern Conference with 49 points. After
    jettisoning several goal-scoring veterans, the Flyers struggled with their
    offence and hope Lecavalier can bring some punch to the lineup. In that Stanley
    Cup run of nine years ago, Lecavalier and the Lightning outlasted the Flyers in
    a memorable Eastern Conference final series. Tampa Bay then went on to win their
    first championship by defeating Calgary in seven games. The Flyers also signed
    goalie Ray Emery to a one-year deal and 35-year-old defenceman Mark Streit to a
    $21-million, four-year deal that has pressed them up against the salary cap. The
    Flyers firmly believe Giroux will bounce back from a bit of a down year and
    Scott Hartnell will return from injuries. Throw in the expected improvement from
    Jakub Voracek, Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier, and the Flyers could make a
    quick return to the Eastern Conference playoffs. "We kept what we think is a
    real good nucleus together," Holmgren said. "We didnt do anything to dismantle
    anything." Cheap Jerseys
