Paris, France - Former runner-up Novak Djokovic and former champion Roger Federer were a pair of easy second-round winners Wednesday at the French Open. Custom Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys . The second-seeded former world No. 1 Djokovic drilled Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 on Court Chatrier, while the fourth-seeded former top-ranked Swiss great Federer improved to 13-0 in second-round French Open matches by cruising past Argentine qualifier Diego Sebastian Schwartzman, making his Grand Slam debut, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 on Court Lenglen. The Serbian star Djokovic lost to eight-time champion Rafael Nadal in the French final two years ago and gave way to the mighty clay court king in an epic semifinal here last year. The 27-year-old six-time major titlist Djokovic still needs Roland Garros to complete a career Grand Slam. The 17-time Grand Slam king Federer titled here in 2009 and is a four-time French Open runner-up to Nadal. Up next for Djokovic will be Croat Marin Cilic, while Federer will encounter Russian Dmitry Tursunov on Friday. Sixth-seeded Czech slugger Tomas Berdych overcame Ukrainian Aleksandr Nedovyesov 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 7-5, 6-3; eighth-seeded big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic rolled along by handling Czech Jiri Vesely 7-6 (7-4), 6-4, 6-1; 13th- seeded French favorite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga disposed of Austrian left-hander Jurgen Melzer 6-2, 6-3, 6-4; and an upset came when 35-year-old Czech Radek Stepanek doused 15th-seeded Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny 6-0, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4. Other top-20 action saw 17th-seeded Spaniard Tommy Robredo paste Frenchman Kenny De Schepper 6-2, 6-3, 6-3, 18th-seeded Latvian Ernests Gulbis drop Argentine Facundo Bagnis 6-2, 7-5, 6-0 and Spaniard Marcel Granollers upend 20th-seeded Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov 1-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-0, 6-2. Gulbis already owns two titles in France this year, including one on clay just last week in Nice. Also on Day 4, a 25th-seeded Cilic got past German Tobias Kamke 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-0; 27th-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut dismissed Frances Benoit Paire 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 6-2; 29th-seeded Frenchman Gilles Simon grounded Colombian Alejandro Gonzalez 6-4, 6-0, 6-2; a 31st-seeded Tursunov erased American Sam Querrey 6-4, 7-5, 6-1; and surging Slovak Martin Klizan edged out Dutchman Robin Haase 6-1, 3-6, 6-1, 1-6, 7-5. The first round concluded Wednesday when American Steve Johnson outlasted Frances Laurent Lokoli, 4-6, 6-7 (7-9), 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 6-3, in a match that was suspended because of darkness on Tuesday. Johnson trailed two-sets-to-one before mounting a comeback on Day 3. Melvin Gordon III Youth Jersey . So they rushed to re-sign the first baseman who general manager Ben Cherington described Friday as "a unique player." The World Series champions finalized a $32 million, two-year agreement Thursday with the slugging former catcher who turned into a surprisingly good defender. Melvin Ingram Jersey . -- Colin Kaepernick insists he just happened to pull on a pair of socks with dollar bill prints all over them Wednesday morning -- before he learned he had struck a new fortune with the San Francisco 49ers.LONDON -- Arsenal conceded an injury-time own-goal to give Swansea a 2-2 draw on Tuesday and fall further behind in the Premier League title race. Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead -- only to concede a fluke equalizer. Per Mertesacker slid in front of Leon Britton to clear a dangerous ball, but it bounced off goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny onto Mathieu Flamini and into the net. Arsenal had trailed after Wilfried Bony put the visitors ahead with a header in the 11th minute. But substitute Lukas Podolski equalized in the 73rd and then set up Olivier Giroud for the second less than 70 seconds later. However, the late equalizer leaves Arsenal six points behind leader Chelsea in fourth place. That last Champions League spot now suddenly looks vulnerable as well, with Everton six points behind with a game in hand as Arsenal looks increasingly likely to finish yet another season fighting for fourth place. "This result tonight hurts us a lot," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. "The way it happened of course is more frustrating. ... We made a mistake on the second goal, it was not needed." Swansea even left feeling aggrieved after referee Lee Probert blew for full time just as Jonathan de Guzman was racing clear on goal with a chance to net a winner. "For me, its a very poor decision," Swansea manager Garry Monk said. "Its definitely going to be a shot on goal. ... Whether he scores that one or not, I dont know." Arsenal started ambitiously and seemed eager to turn the page on the Chelsea embarrassment. However, tthe home side was caught on the counterattack when Neil Taylor sent a ball into the area and Bony beat defender Thomas Vermaelen in the air to head the opener at the near post. Doug Flutie Jersey. Arsenal dominated possession for much of the rest of the game but failed to create any clear-cut chances until it netted two goals in the space of 70 seconds midway through the second half. First, Kieran Gibbs cut into the left side of the area and squared for Podolski, who slotted in the equalizer. Shortly after the restart, Swansea gave the ball away and Podolski turned provider as he raced down the left flank and crossed for Giroud, who couldnt miss from close range. Arsenal, which had been booed off the pitch at halftime, seemed to have turned things around only to concede the nearly comical equalizer. "We just wanted to win the game without pushing any more forward, and a mistake happened unfortunately," Wenger said. "The result is very disappointing but the spirit we put in and the effort we put in was great. We have to take it on the chin." Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both started for Arsenal despite the red-card debacle against Chelsea, when Oxlade-Chamberlain handled in the area but Gibbs was mistakenly sent off instead. The red card was transferred to Oxlade-Chamberlain by the Football Association on Monday but then rescinded after it ruled that he did not prevent a clear goalscoring opportunity. Sweden midfielder Kim Kallstrom, who was signed on the last day of the January transfer window only to be ruled out with a back injury a day later, made his debut as a substitute after Arsenals second goal.

  • FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Sheldon Rankins Womens Jersey . - Falcons coach Mike Smith said Tuesday the intention is for wide receiver Julio Jones to play this week against Pittsburgh after hurting his hip in Monday nights loss at Green Bay.Jones had 11 catches for a team-record 259 yards with one touchdown in the 43-37 loss to the Packers. He watched from the sideline after leaving the game in the fourth quarter with the injury.Smith said Jones and safety William Moore, who hurt his foot, were sore on Tuesday and may miss practice time this week.How much practice time theyre going to get, we dont know that at this point in time, Smith said. Its our intention to have those guys ready to go against Pittsburgh.The Falcons (5-8) remain tied for first in the NFC South. If Jones cant return, it would be a big blow to Atlantas hopes of winning the NFLs worst division.Jones has a combined 448 yards receiving in his last two games. He set a personal high with 189 yards in a home win over Arizona on Nov. 30 before topping that total with the team record against the Packers.He showcased on the national stage the kind of player that he is, said quarterback Matt Ryan. That kind of production is huge for our football team.Ryan passed for 375 yards and a season-high four touchdowns against Green Bay.Again, when theyre in sync, it really is very difficult to slow those guys down, Smith said of Jones and Ryan. Julio is an outstanding wide receiver. In my mind hes the best in the NFL. In the last few weeks, youre not going anyone who can put games together back to back like that. Of course for a receiver to have a big game, the quarterback has to be able to distribute the ball and Matt has done a very good job.Jones stats back up Smiths claim. He leads the NFL with 1,428 yards receiving, a career high.Jones was leading the NFL in catches when his 2013 season ended with a broken bone in his right foot in a Week 5 loss to the Jets. He broke the same bone during his college career at Alabama.The fourth-year receiver has made his successful return from the foot injury, and now there is a new concern. He moved stiffly on the sideline following the injury. At one point he grabbed his helmet as if he planned to return to the game before being sent back to the bench.The Falcons have won three of five, including a split of back-to-back games with Arizona and Green Bay, two of the NFCs top teams.After Sundays visit from Pittsburgh, Atlanta finishes the regular season with NFC South games against New Orleans and Carolina.New Orleans and Atlanta are tied at 5-8, but the Falcons already have a win over the Saints.The opportunity keeps coming up for us, Ryan said. I think collectively we need to seize it. We are at the point in the season where it is time.Even if they lose to the Steelers, the Falcons would win the South by beating the Saints and Panthers.I just think we need to play consistent football, said running back Steven Jackson. I think the last two weeks we played two of the best NFC if not the best NFL teams, and by in large we competed at a very high level.Smith said he had no update on cornerback Robert Alford, who missed the game with a wrist injury.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Charles Odum on Twitter at www.twitter.com/CharlesOdum Wil Lutz Saints Jersey . -- The defending Canadian womens curling champions squandered an opportunity to take sole possession of first place in the standings Tuesday at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

The Hall of Fames board cut a players eligibility from 15 years to 10, which gives McGwire a maximum of two more appearances on the writers ballot. Bonds, Clemens and Sosa, shunned so far along with other Steroids Era stars, can be considered up to eight more times each by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winner, dropped from 37.6 per cent to 35.4 last year in his second ballot appearance, well short of the 75 per cent needed for election. Bonds, a seven-time MVP and baseballs career home runs leader, fell from 36.2 per cent to 34.7. McGwire dropped from 16.9 per cent to 11, down from a peak of 25.6 in 2008. Sosa, who hit 609 homers, dropped from 12.5 per cent to 7.2 -- close to falling below the 5 per cent threshold for remaining on the ballot. Three players with 11-15 years will remain eligible: Don Mattingly (15th year in 2015), Alan Trammell (14th) and Lee Smith (13th). Joe Allen Wales Jersey . This is just the second change in voting rules since 1985, when the 5 per cent threshold for remaining on the ballot was instituted. In 1991, players on baseballs permanent ineligible list were barred from the ballot, a move that prevented career hits leader Pete Rose from being considered. Rose agreed to a lifetime ban in 1989 after an investigation by Major League Baseball concluded he bet on the Cincinnati Reds to win while managing the team. Members of the BBWAA for 10 consecutive years at any point are eligible to vote. Under another change announced Saturday, eligible voters will be required to complete a registration form and sign a code of conduct, and their names will be made public, but not their individual votes. Dan Le Batard, an ESPN host and Miami Herald columnist, was kicked out of the BBWAA for one year and barred from future Hall votes in January after he turned over his 2014 ballot to a website that allowed readers to choose the selections.
