Flushing Meadows, NY (Sports Network) - Victoria Azarenka got past Daniela Hantuchova, and former top-10 star Flavia Pennetta secured a berth in her first-ever Grand Slam semifinal with a big win Wednesday at the U.S. Open. Azarenka, seeded second, and Hantuchova played in the night session on Arthur Ashe court and the Belarusian cruised to a 6-2, 6-3 victory by converting 7- of-11 break point opportunities. Azarenka has reached the semis in six of the past eight majors. Hantuchova had played in just one Grand Slam semi in her career. The 31-year-old Pennetta upset 10th-seeded fellow Italian Roberta Vinci 6-4, 6-1 on a sun-drenched day at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Pennetta ousted fourth-seeded compatriot Sara Errani in the second round here last week and has perhaps reestablished herself as Italys best player. Following a competitive opening set, Vinci appeared to give very little effort in the second, as the uneventful bout was over in 65 minutes at Ashe Stadium. "Im really happy. I cannot believe it," said an elated Pennetta, who has yet to drop a set at this Big Apple fortnight. Pennetta improved to 5-4 lifetime against Vinci, including 2-0 at Grand Slam events. The 30-year-old Vinci was playing in her second straight U.S. Open quarterfinal (0-2). Shes never played in a major quarter outside of New York. Vinci and Pennetta were two of five thirtysomethings in the quarterfinals here, equaling the most in the Open Era at any Grand Slam event. The world No. 83 Pennetta played in her fourth U.S. Open quarterfinal in her last five trips to Flushing. She missed last years Open because of a right wrist injury. This will mark Pennettas first major semi in 41 Grand Slam events. Shes never advanced beyond the fourth round at the Australian Open, French Open or Wimbledon. Pennetta and Azarenka have faced each other just twice, last meeting in Dubai in 2011. Pennetta won that match in three sets, while Azarenka defeated her in 2010. The other semifinal will pit top-seeded Serena Williams against fifth-seeded Li Na, who was this years Aussie Open runner-up and is a former French Open champ. The 16-time Grand Slam titlist Williams is a four-time U.S. Open champion and two-time runner-up. She beat Azarenka in last years finale in Flushing and captured the French Open back in June. The 2013 U.S. Open champ will earn $2.6 million. The current world No. 1 Williams would claim an additional $1 million as a result of capturing the U.S. Open Series. Stefan de Vrij Netherland Jersey.

Rosbergs time of 1 minute, 33.185 seconds at the Bahrain International Circuit was a quarter of a second faster than Hamilton, who had to abandon his final flying lap after running wide at the first corner.

"I could have been equipment manager but nooooo" from Lisa on Ice. Season 6, Episode 8.TORONTO - The Raptors learned a little bit about themselves in a narrow defeat to the Chicago Bulls Wednesday, a game with playoff-type intensity and their third consecutive against an opponent directly behind them in the standings. On Thursday theyll learn even more. Despite the cloud of uncertainty that has followed them around from the moment general manager Masai Ujiri was brought in to put his stamp on the franchise, the Raptors have surpassed all pre-season expectations. They have navigated through early-season tank speculation, theyve come together after a momentum shifting seven-player deal and they continue to block out the noise emitting from the incessant batch of rumours surrounding their starting point guard. At 3:00 PM et Thursday afternoon all that noise will be muzzled until the offseason, all the uncertainty finally put to bed. Finally, they will all know where they stand, at least for the next couple months. So, with the big day rapidly approaching, will Kyle Lowry - the primary subject of trade speculation - be losing any sleep on the eve of the deadline? "Nope," scoffed the Raptors point guard, as that question was posed following his teams 94-92 loss to the Bulls. "Not at all." "Any other questions about that," he asked, daring the hoard of local media to try their luck again. There were no more questions. It was worth a try, after all, its the question thats on everyones mind. Will Lowry be wearing a Raptors jersey when the team hosts the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday? Still, it was a futile attempt to get a rise out of a player who has been relatively unshakable all season. Lowry, like the rest of his teammates, is fully aware of whats at stake as he waits to learn his fate. The upcoming deadline has been on the their minds, whether they care to admit it or not, but its not a subject thats welcome for discussion in the locker room. "Thankfully on this team, no, no ones talked about it, no ones mentioned it," said Patrick Patterson, ahead of the teams win in Washington Tuesday. "The only thing Ive seen is just stuff on Twitter, the internet, Bleacher Report, whatever, yada, yada, yada, rumours but as far as this group of guys from tthe coaching staff on down to each player on the roster, no one has mentioned anything.ddddddddddddquot; Patterson arrived in the trade from Sacramento on Dec. 9, along with Kings teammates Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons and Chuck Hayes. Since then, this team has gelled in a way that no one could have possibly imagined, going 22-12 with the new additions in uniform. Chemistry is a word thats been used to describe this group both on and off the floor and, as Ujiri has insisted, its something the Raptors general manager values above all else. Ujiri, in conversation with over the weekend, expressed a reluctance to disrupt that newfound chemistry unless the right deal comes along. Hes not alone. Dwane Casey wouldnt mind seeing 15 familiar faces in the locker room when he comes into work on Friday. "I like our guys," Casey said. "I know Masai is working 24/7 on the phones and looking at different scenarios. We talked a long time today. But I like our guys. If we (bring) our team back Im happy." "I always said since I came (here), the players will dictate where we go and the team will dictate where we go," Ujiri told on Sunday. "Thats kind of how its been." The players have spoken. The Raptors hold third place in the Eastern Conference, a 1/2 game in front of the fourth-seeded Bulls after Wednesdays loss. They were outplayed on both ends of the floor in the second night of a back-to-back. It was a brutally physical and fiercely competitive game in which seven technical fouls were handed out. The Raptors were down and out early but they fought back, as they have done time and time again, showing mental and physical toughness. Theyre a resilient bunch, theyve proven that, and they believe theyve earned the right to see this thing out. "I believe that nothing will (happen Thursday)," Patterson predicted. "No trades will be made due to the success that weve had since the (Sacramento deal)." "Why break up something thats been going so well," he asked, rhetorically. "None of us are talking about trades, none of us are talking about wanting to leave and everyone is happy with the current situation." Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
