NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Third-seeded Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., and four-time champion Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark both suffered straight-set upsets Wednesday in the second round of the Connecticut Open. Bouchard lost 6-2, 6-2 to Australian Samantha Stosur. The Canadian, ranked No. 8 in the world, played with her left thigh wrapped after straining her hamstring in practice this week. The injury left her visibly struggling with her mobility throughout the match. "Its obviously not ideal; Ive had to cut back a little bit on practice time, but I should be good to go pretty soon," she said. Bouchard said her personal trainer will join her in New York and said she does not expect the injury to have much of an impact on her performance at next weeks U.S. Open. Stosur, ranked No. 25 in the world, dominated the match, winning almost 70 per cent of the points on her serve, while breaking Bouchards serve twice in each set. "My serve is a weapon, and sometimes it doesnt act like that, so its important for me to really use that part of my game to my best advantage," said Stosur, who will play in her first quarterfinal since January. Wozniacki, the fourth seed, was beaten 6-4, 6-2 by Camila Giorgi of Italy. Giorgi, who also beat Wozniacki in last years U.S. Open, faced just two break points. Her first serves reached 117 mph and her second serves hovered around 107 mph. She consistently hit ground strokes at Wozniackis feet, preventing her from moving laterally. The 37th-ranked Giorgi broke Wozniackis serve in the first game of the match and twice in the second set. "I think today the serve was the key and really consistent," she said. It was the earliest exit at this tournament for Wozniacki, who has appeared in New Haven seven times. She won in each of her first four trips and lost in the semifinals in 2012 and 2013. Wozniacki is ranked No. 11 and was seeded fourth this year. But she also has been training to run the New York Marathon while keeping up a full tennis schedule. She said the cross-training has not been a problem, but acknowledged being tired on Wednesday. "I havent had a day off basically since I came to Montreal, so Ive been playing almost every day," she said. "The tank just wasnt full today and when you play a player like that you just dont get by with not moving 100 per cent." Giorgi will play Garbine Muguruza in the quarterfinals. Muguruza, ranked 26th in the world, needed three sets to dispatch qualifier Peng Shuai of China 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. Muguruza dropped the first two games of the final set, but won the next five games en route to the victory. "I was nervous because I didnt know what to do at that point," Muguruza said. "But I just said to myself, Just continue, because shes also going to get nervous or shes going to miss and not continue like this." Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium came from behind to beat Andrea Petkovic of Germany 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (6) in a match that lasted 3 hours, 11 minutes. Petkovic served for the match twice in the second set at 5-4 and again at 6-5, but could not close out Flipkins. Flipkins also had a tough time ending the match. She led 6-3 in the final tiebreaker before winning on her fifth match point. "I had to fight for it," Flipkins said. "It was one of the best battles of my career." Just one seeded player, second-seed Petra Kvitova, has advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament. She won her second-round match on Tuesday and faces Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic on Thursday. The other quarterfinal has American Alison Riske against Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia. Taurean Prince Jersey . TSN 1290s game day coverage begins on Monday, June 9 at 5:30pm ct as the Blue Bombers take on the Toronto Argonauts in pre-season action. Bombers game day broadcasts on TSN 1290 are hosted by Winnipeg Blue Bomber Hall of Famers Troy Westwood and new addition Chris Walby, alongside beat reporter Darrin Bauming, who delivers regular reports on the team for TSN 1290 all-season long. Pete Maravich Jersey . Yup, he definitely needed this one. Craig homered twice and had three RBIs Wednesday night to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Craig went 4 for 5 and Yadier Molina added three hits for the Cardinals, who salvaged the final game of a three-game set in hopes of staying within shouting distance of front-running Milwaukee in the NL Central. http://www.hawksteamproshop.com/Cheap-E ... ks-Jersey/. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press the Steelers will part ways with the former Pro Bowler, a move that hardly serves as a surprise after fifth-year linebacker Jason Worilds agreed to accept a "transition player" tag last week. DeAndre Bembry Jersey . The Jays responded to the three-spot Detroit placed on Casey Janssen the evening before with an attack on the Tigers Achilles Heel, its bullpen, tying the game in the ninth and winning the game in the 10th. The result absolved Marcus Stroman, brilliant once again, of a tough luck loss while at the same time robbing Max Scherzer, brilliant once again, of a deserved win. Dikembe Mutombo Jersey . Ramon, 30, played in a career-high 97 games with the Goldeyes in 2013. He also matched a career-high eight home runs and posted 52 RBI.There was nothing second-rate about their performance, but second place is where Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir find themselves following their short program in the ice dance event on Sunday. Following a pattern that has become all too familiar for the defending Olympic champions, the American team of Meryl Davis and Charlie White bested Virtue and Moir by a margin of 2.56 points at the Iceberg Skating Palace in Sochi to take top spot. Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov fed off the pro-Russian crowd and tallied a 73.04, putting them in bronze-medal position heading into Mondays free dance (10:00 a.m. ET, streaming live at cbc.ca/olympics). Virtue and Moir, skating to Ella Fitzgeralds Dream a Little Dream of Me, put their slip-up in the team event far in the rear view mirror with a seemingly flawless performance, carving perfect turns, nailing their rotational lifts and staying in sync during their twizzle sequences. As the music ended and they struck their final pose, Moir let out a triumphant "Yes!", knowing that the skate represented one of their best performances of the season. Their joy was short-lived though, as their score of 76.33 came in below their season best score of 77.59 at the Grand Prix Finals in December, leaving the door wide open for the reigning world champions Davis and White, who set a new short dance world record with a score of 78.89. Canadas other medal hopefuls, Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje, skated a strong routine that earned them a 65.93, good for seventh place. The third Canadian entry, featuring Toronto-born Alexandra Paul and Barries Mitchell Islam, skated a light, airy and up-tempo routine, marred only by a small bobble on the opening twizzle by Paul. The 2010 world junior silver medallists finished with a score of 55.91, putting them in 18th place. Virtue and Moir have some work to do to catch the leaders, but they were still happy with how the day unfolded. "It was a really fun performance," the 24-year-old Virtue told CBC Sports. "Obviously, you are here to defend your title. You also want to have fun. You still love what you do." Moir, 26, said that it was this type of performance that has kept them going for the last four years. "Its definitely the reason we keep going. To be on this stage representing Canada, its a huge thing forr Tessa and I to be part of a fantastic Olympic Canadian team.dddddddddddd" Moir added that they still get plenty of enjoyment out of competitions like these. "We love what we do. We love skating together. We have a lot of special moments, and that was one of them." Sundays short dance marked the third head-to-head battle between the Canadians and Americans at these Olympics. Davis and White beat Virtue and Moir by three points in the short dance portion of the team event early in the Games, and repeated the feat in the free dance portion with a seven-point victory. The two rivals bring contrasting styles to the sport. Virtue and Moir boast an elegant and flowing style, and a sense of unison that no other team can match, thanks to nearly 17 years as an on-ice tandem. Davis and White, on the other hand, typically display a faster and bolder technique than the Canadian duo, albeit one with arguably less precision. Virtue and Moir have laid claim to an Olympic gold medal in Vancouver, two world titles and six Canadian championships during their careers, but theyve consistently come up short against the American pair over the past two seasons, including at the 2013 world championship in Virtues hometown of London, Ont. What makes the rivalry even more peculiar, if not slightly peculiar, is the fact they share not only the same training facility in Canton, Mich., but also the same coach and choreographer, Russian-born Marina Zoueva. Zoueva has coached Davis and White for the past 14 years, and has been working with Virtue and Moir for 10 years. While they arent close friends with the Americans off the ice, Virtue and Moir have often said that they have a good relationship with them and that both sides enjoy the friendly rivalry. Another storyline that has surrounded the athletes since the team event, an alleged judging scandal, has fortunately faded into the background. During the opening weekend, the French sports publication LEquipe had reported that the American and Russian judges were conspiring against Canada in order to assure a gold medal for Russia in the team competition and gold for the U.S., in ice dancing. Despite being at the centre of the controversy, Virtue and Moir insist that the rumours havent affected their focus on or off the ice.
