He will face top-seeded Fabio Fognini in the second round.These guys are playing all year. Its time to get back on the train again, del Potro said. This tournament is very special to me.It was del Potros second extended layoff with a wrist injury. After capturing his only Grand Slam title at the 2009 U.S. Open, he underwent surgery on his right wrist and was sidelined for eight months.Pospisil, from Vancouver, had 10 aces in his straight-sets win.

Devonta Freeman Jersey .40 metres at the Drake Relays. Drouin, from Corunna, Ont., bested his own record of 2.38 metres set in Aug. Adrian Clayborn Jersey . Rookie Marek Mazanec made 39 saves for his first NHL victory and the Predators beat the Chicago Blackhawks 7-2 Saturday night. http://www.thefaclonsshoponline.com/Youth-Andy-Levitre-Falcons-Jersey/ . But this time, the Gunners weathered the storm. Arsene Wengers team was on the ropes in the early stages of a lively FA Cup tie, until Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a goal against the run of the play.Phil Edwards looks at Englands first-Test win, Eddie Jones bout with the media, and Australias city of sport, Melbourne... Its so far so good for England in Australia. On Saturday they made history by beating the Wallabies in Brisbane for the first time. Now theyre hoping to give the sporting chroniclers more work by wrapping up their first series win in Australia at the earliest available opportunity. These are heady times for Eddie Jones and his merry men.Saturdays victory was all the more poignant because it came at Brisbanes Suncorp Stadium, formerly known as Lang Park. It was there in 1998 that England suffered their worst day at the office. Fast Eddie has been playing both countries media like a violin. Actually, more like a demented fiddler after three double espressos. Phil Edwards The yet-to-be-knighted Clive Woodward had taken a scratch team to tackle all three of the southern hemispheres super-powers, on what would become known as the Tour from Hell.The first of four Tests, all ending in painful defeats, was in Brisbane. Most of the big names were missing, and a collection of players, some of whom werent even household names in their own households, crashed to a 76-0 defeat.I say most were relative unknowns, but there was a bloke making his first start for England that night you will have heard of; a fella by the name of Jonny Wilkinson. And you know what he managed to achieve five years later! Anyhow, Saturdays win exorcised a few demons. Wilkinson made his first start for England against Australia in Brisbane in 1998 Melbourne, city of sportNow the bandwagon has rolled on to Melbourne. By contrast, this is where England had their best day on the road against Australia, back in 2003. Criticised before the match for being negative and one-dimensional - some things never change - they ran riot and out-scored their hosts by three tries to one to record their first ever victory on Australian soil.If you are a sports fan (and you are or you wouldnt be reading this) then Melbourne has it all. There is the MCG for cricket and Aussie Rules football, the Melbourne Cup for racing types, the AAMI Stadium for both codes of rugby, the Rod Laver Arena for Grand Slam tennis, and the Australian Grand Prix circuit in Albert Park. Highlights of Englands 39-28 win over Australia in the first game of their three-Test series in Brisbane If you like your rowing and canoeing, theres the Yarra River and I dare say that if Tibetan Yak racing is your thing, theres probably an amateur club somewhere in the suburbs to cater for your every need. Its at the aforementioned AAMI stadium, home to the Melbourne Rebels, in which England and Australia will meet in the second Test.Thats the main act of the week of course, but as Im sure you are aware, there is also an on-going sub-plot. Various former Wallabies, one of them actually capped by Eddie Jones, have been chirping away in the local papers, and on the telly. England coach Eddie Jones says his side will come out swinging in their next game against Australia Theyve been helpfully pointing out Englands flaws, transgression and, before the first Test had been played, their general hopelessness. Andre Roberts Jersey. Consequently, Fast Eddie has been playing both countries media like a violin. Actually, more like a demented fiddler after three double espressos.To start with he was apparently outraged by the comments hed read and seen. That was straight after the first Test. Two days later that infectious grin had returned and it was all just good old knock-about banter. We all know hes playing mind-games of the highest quality, but theyre simply too good to resist! Heartbreak and heart failureOne thing the England coach did remind us of is that Australia have never lost the second Test of a three match series. As a punter who paid his way to watch the Lions series with some mates back in 2001, I remember all too well the heartache of the second Test.That was here in Melbourne in the indoor Etihad Stadium. One loose pass from Jonny Wilkinson that night, and Joe Roff pounced to score a game-changing try, followed by another shortly afterwards. Summer tours on Sky How and where to watch the summer Tests on Sky Sports Twelve years later at the same venue, it wasnt so much heart-break, as near heart-failure as the Wallabies edged a desperately tense match by a single point.This time, you feel that England have the upper hand at both the lineout and the scrum. They also seem to have the measure of the Wallabies at the breakdown.Owen Farrell is in the form of his life and never looks like missing from the kicking tee, and Maro Itoje has to refer to a dictionary to find out what losing means because hes forgotten.  Owen Farrell picked up 24 points for England as they beat Australia 28-39 in Brisbane Having said all that, the Aussies are still as dangerous out wide as all their snakes and creepy-crawlies combined.And in Isreal Folau they have a player who can turn a match on its head in seconds. They are in must-win territory and about as desperate as men can get. Saturday should be an absolute ripper, as they say in these parts.
