he whole way, he said. It was one of my slower trots to first, honestly. It felt good, it really did.Still, after losses Antworten

WIMBLEDON -- Annika Beck was to Serena Williams on Sunday what a decent cup of morning coffee is to the rest of us.If the six-time Wimbledon champ needed a little jolt to pass Chris Evert for Grand Slam match win No. 300, Becks early service break on Centre Court seemed to do just the trick.Playing on the first middle Sunday here in 12 years, Williams shook off her boredom or whatever made her look like she woke up in a bad mood, and like the aftermath of the infamous racket smash in her previous match, she went to work.Winning 11 of the last 12 games, including the last seven, Williams polished off the 43rd-ranked German 6-3, 6-0 in 51 minutes to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon.I think the [Christina] McHale match really helped me, Williams said, referring to her second-round encounter last week. To be honest, I felt like losing that first set so tight and her playing better than shes ever played in her life really helped me to realize that I can play better.Williams coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, told on Saturday that Serena was too calm at the French Open, where she was defeated in the final by Garbine Muruguza. He was glad to see a little rage in her racket-smashing moment during a changeover against McHale.On Sunday, Williams was aggressive only in her on-court play, finishing with 25 winners to only 14 unforced errors. Williams cracked seven aces and limited Beck to four points in the second set, all on the return of serve.I wasnt sure what the stats were, obviously, but on that last service game, I was thinking, Have I lost on my first serve yet? Williams said. I wasnt sure, but I just tried to stay focused.It gives me a lot of confidence. I know what it takes to win these tournaments. Its just about now just doing it.Clearly that is tougher than it looks, as another No. 1 can attest.Asked what she thought of watching fellow American Sam Querrey derail Novak Djokovics pursuit of a calendar-year Slam on Saturday, Williams said she was surprised Djokovic didnt come back from his two-set deficit to win.But it happens to all of us, said Williams, who lost her bid to sweep all four majors when she was defeated in last years US Open semifinals. Every time I step out on the court, if I dont win, its major national news. But if I do win, its just like a small tag in the corner.If that sounds like a burden, Williams said it isnt any longer.I look at it almost like something thats really awesome to be in that position. There are only two people you can say that about out of all the athletes, Williams said of herself and Djokovic.Williams will next face 13th-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova, who rallied back from a 5-2 third-set deficit to eliminate American Sloane Stephens 6-7 (1), 6-2, 8-6.Williams is 9-3 against her upcoming Russian opponent, although Kuznetsova won their last meeting, a three-set upset at the Miami Open in March. The two have yet to play on grass.Were both ready for this match, Williams said. Were both going to give it our heart, as we always do when we play each other.While Mouratoglou has worried about Williams level of motivation since the US Open, during which time she finished as the runner-up at both the Australian and French opens, he said it is definitely not OK with her to finish anywhere short of winning the title and maintaining her No. 1 ranking.She hates [losing], Mouratoglou said. Shes not losing in the second round, third round, quarters. She was two times in the final and two sets away from the Grand Slam, so this is definitely not satisfying at all to stop there.Serena wants to be No. 1. She wants to win Grand Slams because when you win Grand Slams, you are a champion. If she feels she is not a champion anymore, then she will not enjoy it and she wont play.

Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. TORONTO -- In their first visit to Toronto, the San Diego Padres hit yet another home run but didnt manage much else against the Blue Jays.Aaron Sanchez pitched seven shutout innings to win his 10th straight decision, Kevin Pillar had three hits and Toronto beat the Padres 4-2 on Monday night.Playing their first interleague road game against Toronto, the Padres were held scoreless until Alex Dickerson hit a two-run homer off Bo Schultz in the ninth.Dickersons drive into the fifth deck extended San Diegos team-record streak of games with at least one home run to 23. The 2006 Atlanta Braves were the last National League team to homer in 23 straight games.Heck of a swing, Padres manager Andy Green said. If youre ever privileged to stand close enough to the dugout to listen to him on deck, he literally whistles the bat. Ive never heard anybody else swing a bat like that on deck.Dickerson acknowledged admiring his towering shot as he began to round the bases.I saw it the whole way, he said. It was one of my slower trots to first, honestly. It felt good, it really did.Still, after losses in six of the past eight games for the Padres, Dickerson didnt feel too much like celebrating.The streak is a fun thing to keep track of, but realistically, well take a win with a bunch of singles, he said.Sanchez (11-1) became the first Blue Jays pitcher to win 10 straight since Roy Halladay won 15 decisions in a row in 2003. Halladay and Roger Clemens (1998) hold the club record.Its legit stuff. Its top-of-the-rotation stuff, Green said about Sanchez. Its not surprising to see him do as well as he has this year.Sanchez has not lost since April 22 against Oakland, a span of 16 starts. An All-Star for the first time this season, he lowered his ERA from 2.87 to 2.72.Just a good night for me, Sanchez said. When you can command your fastball up and down, in and out, its a fun game. Thats kind of what it was tonight.Roberto Osuna replaced Schultz and got two outs for his 21st save.Padres right-hander Colin Rea (5-5) allowed three runs and five hits in six innnings.dddddddddddd He is winless in three starts.Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista was activated off the 15-day disabled list before the game. Batting leadoff and playing right field, he went 1 for 3 with a walk. Bautista had been out since injuring his left big toe when he jumped into the outfield wall June 16 at Philadelphia.WELCOME TO THE CLUBPadres bench coach Mark McGwire hit the first fifth-deck homer in Toronto in 1996, and had a special greeting for Dickerson when he returned to the dugout. He said I joined a very special club that hes also a part of, Dickerson said. That was a special moment for me.SITTING DOWN ON THE JOBPadres RHP Jose Dominguez sat on first base to complete a 3-4-1 double play in the seventh. Umpire Dan Iassogna initially called the runner safe, but the Padres challenged and the call was overturned.BULLPEN BOOSTSan Diego recalled LHP Keith Hessler from Triple-A El Paso and optioned RHP Kevin Quackenbush to its top farm club. The Padres needed help after four relievers combined to pitch six innings in Sundays victory at Washington.UPTON SITS AGAINPadres OF Melvin Upton Jr. sat out for the second straight game. Green confirmed that Upton, the subject of trade speculation, is healthy and could return Tuesday.TRAINERS ROOMPadres: Dominguez stayed in the game after being hit on the left forearm by a line drive off the bat of Devon Travis, the first batter he faced.Blue Jays: C Russell Martin (left knee) returned after missing three games. Martin was injured after he passed out and fell over in the shower following an extended spell in the sauna last Thursday.UP NEXTPadres: RHP Andrew Cashner (4-7, 4.79 ERA) has struck out 17 batters while walking none over his past two starts. He is 0-2 in two starts against AL opponents this season.Blue Jays: RHP Marcus Stroman (8-4, 4.90) has won his past two decisions and is unbeaten in four starts. He is 2-0 in four starts against NL opponents. ' ' '
