na Ivanovic of Serbia advanced to the sec

DOHA, Qatar -- Ninth-seeded Ana Ivanovic of Serbia advanced to the second round of the Qatar Open on Tuesday after Slovakias Daniela Hantuchova retired from their match with a right knee injury. Oliver Bjorkstrand Jersey . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead. But Ivanovic won the next four games to secure the set, winning the ninth game at love with her final three serves being aces. "She started really well, and I managed to get back into the set and break her back," Ivanovic said. "I played some really good tennis towards the end of that first set and then in the second." Wildcard entrant Alisa Kleybanova of Russia also advanced after her opponent retired. At 5-5 in the first set, 10th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova of Slovak Republic, the recent Australian Open finalist, retired from the match with a gastrointestinal illness. "I was really looking forward to playing this week in Doha," said Cibulkova, who was making her first tournament appearance since becoming the first Slovakian to reach a Grand Slam final. "Unfortunately I became very sick today and suddenly did not feel well. I wanted to give it a try today and I did everything I could to try to play, but I could not continue." Karin Knapp, who led Italy to a 3-1 Fed Cup victory over the United States in Cleveland at the weekend, was told she had to be in Doha to play a first round match on Tuesday. Knapp started her journey early Monday morning and after going from Cleveland to Washington DC, and then to Dubai, she landed in Doha on Tuesday in time to play her afternoon match. Knapp played impressive tennis to defeat Caroline Garcia of France 6-4, 6-1 straight off the plane. Four players who chose to skip playing the Fed Cup tie between the U.S. and Italy in order to get to Doha early -- Sloane Stephens, Francesca Schiavone, Roberta Vinci and Flavia Pennetta -- have all lost their first round matches. Elsewhere, American Bethanie Mattek-Sands upset 15th-seeded Eugenie Bouchard of Canada, a recent Australian Open semifinalist, 7-5, 6-1. Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys . The 26-year-old Redditch, England, native played three of his past four seasons under Rennie with the Carolina RailHawks of the North American Soccer League. Scott Harrington Jersey . Funny, they looked like longtime friends during Pittsburghs 5-1 demolition of Dallas on Tuesday night. Quick to the puck and even quicker to the net, the Penguins top line overwhelmed the suddenly struggling Stars as Pittsburgh bounced back from a dismal weekend sweep at the hands of Philadelphia by jumping on Dallas early.Tampa Bay’s sensational sophomores, the Isles’ supporting cast, Detroit’s stifling defence, lineup news, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Palat, Johnson, Kucherov – This is hardly the first time noting their outstanding play but, after putting up four of Tampa Bay’s five goals in a 5-1 win at Buffalo Wednesday, with three at even strength, the trio of Lightning second-year forwards took over as the league’s most productive line, scoring 24 goals. LW Ondrej Palat led the way against Buffalo, with a goal and three assists, while C Tyler Johnson had three helpers and RW Nikita Kucherov had two goals and an assist and all three were on for 20 shot attempts for and three against (87.0%) at even strength. TOP SCORING LINES LINE TEAM GOALS Palat-Johnson-Kucherov Tampa Bay 24 Marchand-Bergeron-Smith Boston 23 Raffl-Giroux-Voracek Philadelphia 19 Tarasenko-Lehtera-Schwartz St. Louis 18 Forsberg-Ribeiro-Neal Nashville 17 Strome, Nielsen, Lee – The Islanders’ second line scored four of their five goals in a 5-2 win at Winnipeg New Year’s Eve. Strome, one of the most efficient point producers in the league, led the way with a goal and three assists and all three were on for better than 75% of the shot attempts against Winnipeg. Among players with at least 300 5-on-5 minutes this season: POINTS PER 60 MINUTES, 5-on-5 PLAYER TEAM POS. PTS/60 Tyler Johnson Tampa Bay C 3.79 Nikita Kucherov Tampa Bay RW 3.66 Rick Nash N.Y. Rangers LW 3.59 Ryan Strome N.Y. Islanders RW 3.33 Tyler Seguin Dallas C/RW 3.05 Detroit Red Wings – In a 3-1 win over New Jersey on New Year’s Eve, the Red Wings outshot the Devils 28-13. This was practically a perfect storm for stifling shots, at least in a game not involving the Buffalo Sabres. The Red Wings allow a league-leading 45.30 shot attempts against per 60 minutes of 5-on-5 play this season, while the Devils generate a paltry 47.23 shot attempts 60 minutes (only the Sabres, at 39.52 are lower). Detroit’s best shot suppressor is C Riley Sheahan, who starts more than 62% of his shifts in the offensive zone and allows a league-best 37.7 shot attempts per 60 minutes of 5-on-5 play. Among players with at least 400 minutes of 5-on-5 play this season: SHOT ATTEMPTS AGAINST, PER 60 MINUTES AT 5-on-5 PLAYER TEAM POS. CA/60 Riley Sheahan Detroit C 37.7 Tomas Tatar Detroit LW 40.3 Jaromir Jagr New Jersey RW 42.9 Anton Stralman Tampa Bay D 43.6 Brendan Smith Detroit D 43.8 Travis Zajac New Jersey C 44.5 Steven Stamkos Tampa Bay C 44.6 Ryan Callahan Tampa Bay RW 44.8 Patrice Bergeron Boston C 45.0 Jonas Brodin Minnesota D 45.1 ZEROES Boston’s fourth line – Though they didn’t start a single shift in the offensive zone in their 4-3 shootout loss to Toronto New Year’s Eve, the line of Gregory Campbell, Dan Paille and Craig Cunningham were all crushed in termf os possession, with Campbell at the low end (1 shot attempt for, 12 against, 7.7%) against a team that has its own puck possession woes. Bo Horvat – The Canucks rookie started 75% of his shifts in the offensive zone against Los Angeles Thursday, but managed to be on the ice for just one shot attempt for and 13 against (7.1%) and has a team-worst (minimum 20 minutes of 5-on-5 play) 43.1% Corsi; further evidence that it’s not easy to play in the league as a teenager. Nicolas Deslauriers – The Sabres winger put the finishing touches on his league-worst Corsi percentage in December with 11.8% of the shot attempts (2 for, 15 against) against Tampa Bay on New Year’s Eve. Here are the leaders, and trailers, in Corsi% for the month of December. Among players with at least 120 5-on-5 minutes in the final month of 2014: CORSI% LEADERS - DECEMBER, 2014 PLAYER TEAM POS. CORSI% Trevor Lewis Los Angeles RW 65.4% Brad Boyes Florida RW 63.3% Tyler Toffoli Los Angeles RW 62.5% Marian Gaborik Los Angeles LW 62.4% Tomas Tatar Detroit LW 62.1% Joe Thornton San Jose C 61.7% Brayden McNabb Los Angeles D 61.5% Tanner Pearson Los Angeles LW 61.2% Jason Demers Dallas D 60.6% Pavel Datsyuk Detroit C 60.4% At the other end of the spectrum: CORSI% TRAILERS - DECEMBER, 2014 PLAYER TEAM POS. CORSI% Nicolas Deslauriers Buffalo LW 30.8% Drew Stafford Buffalo RW 33.6% Rasmus Ristolainen Buffalo D 33.9% Brian Flynn Buffalo C 35.9% Nikita Zadorov Buffalo D 36.0% Chris Stewart Buffalo RW 36.3% Josh Gorges Buffalo D 36.4% Tyler Bozak Toronto C 36.7% Phil Kessel Toronto RW 37.1% Zemgus Girgensons Buffalo C 37. Markus Nutivaara Blue Jackets Jersey. .2% LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Kris Versteeg – Left the Winter Classic early after suffering an apparent hand injury as he blocked a shot from Washington’s Eric Fehr. The Blackhawks have the luxury of being able to slide a player as skilled as Patrick Sharp into Versteeg’s spot with Brad Richards and Patrick Kane if Versteeg is going to miss significant time. Joffrey Lupul – Toronto’s frequently-injured winger suffered a lower-body injury after an awkward collision with Boston’s Milan Lucic. Peter Holland is also out for the Leafs, so they have recalled Greg McKegg from the AHL Marlies. McKegg has 15 points (7 G, 8 A) and is minus-2 in 23 AHL games this season. Beau Bennett – The oft-injured winger assisted on both of Pittsburgh’s goals in a 2-1 win over Carolina, in his first game in five weeks, skating on a line with Chris Kunitz and Brandon Sutter. Corey Perry – Returned to the Anaheim lineup, after missing nearly four weeks, in Wednesday’s 3-0 loss to San Jose. Joe Thornton – Played only 3:35 at Anaheim on New Year’s Eve after getting hit by Ducks D Clayton Stoner, though the Sharks downplayed the severity of the injury. Ryan Murphy – The Hurricanes recalled their young puck-moving blueliner after he spent a couple of months toiling in the AHL, where he had 17 assists and a minus-7 rating in 23 games. Mason Raymond – The Flames winger was a healthy scratch against Edmonton Saturday. He had seven points (5 G, 2 A) in seven games to start the year, but has gone scoreless in 13 games since. Micheal Haley – The agitating centre was called up to the Sharks, and played three games in the past week. He has three points (2 G, 1 A) and 168 penalty minutes in 55 career NHL games and had 13 points (10 G, 3 A) with 60 penalty minutes in the AHL when he got the call. SHORT SHIFTS Jets LW Andrew Ladd scored both of Winnipeg’s goals in the 5-2 loss to the Islanders. In the past 12 games, Ladd has 13 points (6 G, 7 A)…Rangers C Derek Stepan had three assists in a 5-2 win at Florida, giving him 11 points (4 G, 7 A) in the past seven games…Maple Leafs RW Phil Kessel contributed a goal and an assist in a 4-3 shootout win at Boston on New Year’s Eve; Kessel has 18 points (7 G, 11 A) in the past 16 games…Bruins C Carl Soderberg had a goal and an assist in the loss for Boston, and has nine points (3 G, 6 A) in his past seven games…Blue Jackets D Kevin Connauton picked up a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win over Minnesota New Year’s Eve, giving him nine points (5 G, 4 A) in the past nine games…Sharks RW Joe Pavelski scored a pair of goals in a 3-0 win at Anaheim Wednesday, and has nine points (7 G, 2 A) in the past nine games…Avalanche D Brad Stuart had a pair of assists in a 4-3 win against Philadelphia, and has four assists in the past four games. Those are Stuart’s first points of the season, but he could use some positive recognitition after getting slammed twice for puck possession shortcomings this week. Capitals D Mike Green recorded a pair of assists in Washington’s 3-2 Winter Classic win over Chicago; he has eight points (1 G, 7 A) in the past seven games... Capitals LW Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist in the Winter Classic, while generating 13 shot attempts (4 SOG)…In his past 11 games, Ovechkin has registered 120 shot attempts (10.9 per game)…Blackhawks LW Patrick Sharp, who is second to Ovechkin in shots on goal per game, scored a goal and generated 15 shot attempts (10 SOG) in the outdoor game…Canucks RW Radim Vrbata had a goal and an assist in Thursday’s 3-2 loss to Los Angeles, giving him five points (3 G, 2 A) in the past five games…Colorado’s fourth-liners, Cody McLeod (12 shot attempts for, none against, 100.0%) and Maxime Talbot (13 for, 1 against, 92.9%) had dominant possession games against Philadelphia Wednesday, crushing the head-to-head matchup against Philadelphia’s Vincent Lecavalier and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. Stars G Kari Lehtonen recorded a 32-save shutout against Arizona New Year’s Eve…Sharks G Antti Niemi had 28 saves on a shutout at Anaheim, and had a .929 save percentage in December…Blue Jackets G Sergei Bobrovsky had 28 saves on 29 shots in a 3-1 win over Minnesota, and had a .937 save percentage in December…Hurricanes G Cam Ward stopped 37 of 39 shots faced in a 2-1 loss at Pittsburgh; Ward has a .926 save percentage in 22 games since the start of November. FIRSTS Brett Ritchie – The 2011 second-round pick scored a goal in his NHL debut against Arizona Wednesday, playing 10:21 on the fourth line with Travis Moen and Vernon Fiddler. The 6-foot-4 winger had 18 points (11 G, 7 A) and was plus-10 in 22 AHL games. Joe Whitney – The 5-foot-6 winger scored his first NHL goal, in his third career NHL game, at Detroit Wednesday. Whitney had 27 points (11 G, 16 A) in 30 games with Albany before he was promoted. Nikita Nesterov – The 2011 fifth-round pick of the Lightning played 15:02 in his NHL debut against Buffalo Wednesday. He had 14 points and was plus-4 in 32 AHL games before getting the call, with Radko Gudas still nursing FANTASY TIPS A few under-the-radar players to consider for your lineup Friday: Lars Eller – On a modest three-game point streak, the Habs’ pivot played a season-high 18:56 at Florida last game. Matt Read – He has just one goal and six points in his past 18 games, but joined Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek on the top line last game. Patrick Maroon – By the same token, Maroon hasn’t done much for the Ducks this year, scoring only two goals, but he was re-united with Ryan Getzlaf and a healthy Corey Perry New Year’s Eve against San Jose.
