and Ana Ivanovic will do battle in Saturdays

  • September 28, 2018
    Lindsey Vonn was vintage Vonn in a World Cup downhill at Lake Louise in Alberta on Saturday, earning her first win in nearly two years. [b]Pedro Martinez Jersey[/b] .She screamed Yes! after crossing the finish line, knowing she was back for the first time since her right knee was surgically repaired.Moreover, she led an American podium sweep, the first time thats ever happened.It really couldnt be a better day, Vonn said.Confident in the stability of her right knee again, the four-time overall champion aggressively charged the course and earned her 15th career win at Lake Louise.Vonns teammates were right behind her, with Stacey Cook taking second and Julia Mancuso winding up third.Im so excited for Lindsey. A cool day, Cook said. It really helps having Lindsey back, and her competitiveness and enthusiasm for the sport. It pushes us. Thats when we thrive is when we push each other.The day before, in Vonns first World Cup race in nearly a year, she wasnt her usual aggressive self. She held back just a bit.Not so on Saturday. Vonn took chances, like she usually does, especially here, on a course thats been dubbed Lake Lindsey due to all of her success.Its just finding my rhythm and finding my confidence, she said. Im finally back to where I feel confident and Im pushing the limits. I want more speed. I havent had that yet until today.That Cook and Mancuso shared the podium with her made the afternoon all the more memorable. They are all about the same age and have been with each other through the wins and the wipeouts.We have a good energy (on the team), Vonn said. We all have a great dynamic. Everyones excited for this season.It was Vonns first victory since Jan. 26, 2013, in Maribor, Slovenia. Less than two months later, she injured her knee in a wipeout at the world championships.She tried to get back in time for the Sochi Games, but partially tore one of the reconstructed ligaments in a training crash in Copper Mountain, Colorado, three months before the Olympics.Again, she attempted to get through it, only to sprain her MCL racing a downhill in France last December. A month later, she had a second surgery.This time, she took things easier with her recovery. No need to be aggressive.My knee feels really good. I dont think about my knee at all, said Vonn, who captured downhill gold at the 2010 Vancouver Games. I dont ski differently because of it. Im back to doing what I used to do.Vonn analyzed her downhill performance from Friday and noticed she was off her line and not pushing as hard. So she made the adjustments.I tried to stay deeper in my tuck, tried to be more aggressive in some turns, she said. I think it paid off.Vonn pulled within two of matching the World Cup record of 62 race victories held by the great Annemarie Moser-Proell of Austria.Its always something I kind of think about, Vonn said. Its more to motivate me in the summer. Right now, Im just focusing on trying to ski well.Im not expecting this kind of result all the time just yet. But it definitely gives me a lot of confidence.Next up is a super-G on Sunday. [b]Carl Yastrzemski Jersey[/b] .ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams. [b]Ted Williams Jersey[/b] .? It was his second straight start for the Jets; he suffered a 1-0 loss against Minnesota Monday. So this season Hutchinson has now won games in the ECHL, AHL and NHL. He was perfect three- for-three in the shootout to nail down the win.Brisbane, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Former world No. 1s Maria Sharapova and Ana Ivanovic will do battle in Saturdays final at the season- opening $1 million Brisbane International tennis event. The final berths were secured when the top-seeded Sharapova defeated rising Ukrainian Elina Svitolina 6-1, 6-3 and the second-seeded Ivanovic held off game American Varvara Lepchenko 7-6 (7-2), 6-4 at this Australian Open tune-up on the hardcourts at Queensland Tennis Centre. Sharapova dropped just nine games in her three matches to get to the final and was ruthless against Svitolina, the 2010 junior French Open titlist. I expected her to play well. I think I did a lot of things good to try to take awway her game, Sharapova said. [b]Custom Boston Red Sox Jerseys[/b]. In the end, it became a little bit more difficult. She became more free, went for her shots a little bit, a few unforced errors from my end, but overall Im happy I stuck with it and finished the last point. When the reigning French Open champion Sharapova and Ivanovic meet on Saturday, it will mark their 14th encounter on the WTA, with the Russian leading the lifetime series 9-4. They split four meetings last season. Sharapova is 33-22 in her career finals, including a perfect 4-0 mark last year. Her fellow 27-year-old Ivanovic is 15-7 in her career title tilts, including 4-2 last year. Sharapova beat Ivanovic in the 2008 Aussie Open final.
