Radwanska received treatment on her right serving shoulder during last weeks Hopman Cup in Perth and said Tuesday it was still bothering her. "Maybe a little bit, but I have good painkillers," Radwanska said. "Its not a big deal, it should be all right." Mattek-Sands advanced to play fellow American Madison Keys, who defeated Croatian wild-card entry Ajla Tomljanovic 6-0, 3-6, 7-6 (3). Former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki was also on the receiving end of an upset, falling to Lucie Safarova 6-4, 7-6 (7). Wozniacki, recently engaged to golfer Rory McIlroy, was up three points in the second-set tiebreaker before allowing Safarova to clinch the match. Former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, the second seed, had little trouble in the afternoon session, beating American qualifier Christina McHale 6-1, 6-0.

At the Hobart International WTA event, Australian teenager and wild-card entry Storm Sanders beat Chinas Peng Shuai, ranked nearly 200 places ahead of her, 6-2, 6-2. Sanders was only given a wild card when fellow Australian Ashleigh Barty withdrew with a hip injury. American Alison Riske beat Australian Casey Dellacqua 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 in another second-round match, while defending champion Elena Vesnina of Russia advanced with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Monica Puig of Puerto Rico.

Nike Air Max 2015 Uomo .com) - The Vancouver Canucks hope an upcoming stretch of home games will be enough to get the club into the postseason.With the Oklahoma City Thunder just 5-4 since Russell Westbrook went down with a knee injury, All-Star forward Kevin Durant is taking his fair share of the blame. "Im not doing enough to help them," Durant told The Oklahoman on Monday of his 28-9 team. "Im shooting too much. Im shooting too many threes. Im not helping them out at all. So its not on them." Westbrook has undergone his third knee surgery in eight months and Durant knows that he and his team need to step up in the star guards absence. "The first few games without Russell, we did a great job moving the ball," the 25-year-old, whose 29.6 poinnts per game is good for the best in the NBA, explained. Adidas ZX Flux. "I think now Im just flat out shooting too much. I have to find a way to get my teammates easier shots. Ive been thinking these last few games in order for us to get it going I have to do it all offensively. But, nah, we have to do it together. Its a great learning experience for me. Its the first time Ive really been in that type of position. But I just have to get everybody involved. I may have to pass up a few to find a better shot." The Thunder are back in action on Tuesday night when they visit the Memphis Grizzlies.
