Wimbledon, England - Australian Open champion Li Na, former Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska and 2011 titlist Petra Kvitova were a trio of second-round winners, while former world No. 1 star Victoria Azarenka was ousted Wednesday at The Championships. The second-seeded Li defeated Austrian Yvonne Meusburger 6-2, 6-2 in just over an hour. The Chinese star converted 6-of-10 break-point opportunities and held a lopsided 33-4 advantage in winners. The two-time Grand Slam champion Li will meet Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova on Friday. The fourth-seeded Radwanska was tested in the first set by Australian Casey Dellacqua before posting a 6-4, 6-0 victory in less than an hour on Centre Court. The Polish star was the runner-up at the All England Club two years ago. Radwanskas third-round opponent will be Portugals Michelle Larcher de Brito. The sixth-seeded left-hander Kvitova drubbed German Mona Barthel 6-2, 6-0 to improve to an impressive 21-5 lifetime at Wimbledon. Up next for Kvitova will be five-time Wimbledon champ Venus Williams. The 30th-seeded Williams got past Japans Kurumi Nara 7-6 (7-4), 6-1 for her 73rd career match win here (73-11). The 34-year-old former world No. 1 Williams struck 46 winners, including seven aces, to reach the third round of a major for only the second time in her last 10 Grand Slam tournaments. The 6-foot-1 Williams towered over Nara, the shortest player in the womens top 100 at 5-foot-1. Meanwhile, Serbias Bojana Jovanovski knocked out a rusty eighth-seeded Azarenka 6-3, 3-6, 7-5. The two-time Australian Open champ Azarenka just returned to the tour last week, and lost her only match, after being sidelined with a foot injury for three months. Azarenka reached back-to-back Wimbledon semifinals in 2011 and 2012 before pulling out in the second round here a year ago due to an injury. In another match involving a former world No. 1, 16th-seeded Danish star Caroline Wozniacki committed only two unforced errors in cruising past British wild card Naomi Broady 6-3, 6-2 in a mere 59 minutes. Wozniacki, who is still seeking a trip into her first-ever Wimbledon quarterfinal, will meet little-known Croat Ana Konjuh in the round of 32. In other play involving top-16 seeds, No. 10 Aussie Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova, of Slovakia, edged out Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck 3-6, 6-3, 8-6 and American Lauren Davis upended No. 12 Italian Flavia Pennetta 6-4, 7-6 (7-4). Also, 22nd-seeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova bested Japans Misaki Doi 7-5, 6-4; 23rd-seeded Czech Lucie Safarova saw her way past Slovenian Polona Hercog 7-6 (9-7), 7-5; Zahlavova Strycova upset 32nd-seeded Russian Elena Vesnina 6-4, 6-2; and talented Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia took out American Varvara Lepchenko 7-5, 6-3. Other second-round action saw Larcher de Brito get past Aussie Jarmila Gajdosova 6-3, 4-6, 6-3; Chinese Peng Shuai paste Russian Maria Kirilenko 6-0, 6-3; Konjuh beat Belgian Yanina Wickmayer 3-6, 6-2, 6-2; and Czech Tereza Smitkova cool off American Coco Vandeweghe 6-3, 7-6 (7-4). Vandeweghe captured her first-ever WTA title, on grass, in The Netherlands last week. The first round concluded Wednesday when 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Vera Zvonareva, of Russia, snuck past Brit Tara Moore 6-4, 6-7 (3-7), 9-7 and Kazakhstans Zarina Diyas topped Frances Kristina Mladenovic 7-6 (7-4), 6-4. The second round is scheduled to conclude Thursday, including a match for top- seeded Serena Williams, who will be opposed by South African Chanelle Scheepers. The American great is a 17-time major champion, including five Wimbledon championships, just like her older sister, Venus. Meanwhile, third-seeded French Open runner-up Simona Halep will face Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko and fifth-seeded Roland Garros champion Maria Sharapova will take on Swiss Timea Bacsinszky. Sharapova captured her lone Wimbledon title by upsetting Serena in the final here 10 years ago. Also on Thursdays schedule will be 11th-seeded former top-ranked star Ana Ivanovic and 13th-seeded two-time 2014 Grand Slam semifinalist Eugenie Bouchard. Pittsburgh Penguins Shirts .

Stitched Penguins Jerseys . 2015 Oscar nomination pending. Here is an open letter from Steven Stamkos to his fans: When I shot this final Moment Zero film last August, it was a fun few days on set with Coke Zero and Jordan Eberle in my hometown of Markham.Having already locked up their fifth consecutive series victory, the Toronto Blue Jays will try to sweep the Tampa Bay Rays for the first time since 2010 as the clubs conclude a three-game set tonight. The Blue Jays have slugged their way to a pair of victories to open this set, pushing their winning streak to an impressive eight straight games. Tuesdays 9-6 win gave Toronto a fifth straight series victory for the first time since Sept. 17-Oct. 3, 2010 and put the club in position to sweep Tampa Bay in a three-game set for the first time since Aug. 6-8, 2010 in Toronto. Toronto has homered in 10 straight games, with Edwin Encarnacion a big part of that surge. He went deep in last nights win to match a club record for the most homers in a month with 14. That equaled Jose Bautistas mark set in June of 2012. Juan Francisco and Adam Lind also homered, while Bautista went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Torontos 13th win in 15 games. "Everybodys having fun," Encarnacion said. "You can see it on their faces. Were playing great baseball." That also holds true for starter Mark Buehrle, who picked up his Major League- leading ninth win of the season last night. He gave up four runs -- three earned -- over 6 2/3 innings. Sean Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with three RBI and Wil Myers knocked in two runs for the Rays, who had won four in a row prior to this series. Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb came into Tuesdays start with a 21 2/2 scoreless- innings streak. He stretched that to a club-record 24 2/3 straight frames before the Blue Jays finally got to him for a total of six runs over his five- inning outing. "He was really good, moving along really nicely and all of a suddeen they struck," Rays manager Joe Maddon said of Cobb.dddddddddddd Now it will be Chris Archers turn to try and tame the Blue Jays offense and he comes in having not allowed a run in his past two outings. Archer hurled 5 2/3 frames of two-hit ball in a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels on May 16, then did not factor into Fridays decision versus Boston despite six scoreless innings. Archer scattered four hits and five walks while matching a career high with 11 strikeouts and throwing a personal high 119 pitches. Walks have been a concern for the right-hander as he has issued 19 free passes over his last five outings, but still comes in 3-2 on the year with a 4.11 earned run average. Archer, 25, is 2-0 with a 2.01 ERA in four previous meetings with the Blue Jays, beating them on April 3 after giving up two runs over six frames with seven strikeouts. The Blue Jays counter with Liam Hendriks, who made his Toronto and season debut with a 3-2 win over Oakland on Friday. The righty yielded one run on three hits and three walks, also fanning three in 5 2/3 frames. "I was given opportunities in Minnesota and I didnt capitalize on them," said the 25-year-old Hendriks, who played for the Twins from 2011-2013. "Now Ive got a different mindset coming into the season of just getting ready, getting aggressive and getting after guys early. "I think its paid dividends so far and hopefully I can continue this trend and stay up here all year." Hendriks, who was 5-0 with a 1.48 ERA in nine games this year with Triple-A Buffalo before getting recalled, faced the Rays once before while with the Twins and did not get a decision, allowing four runs over 5 2/3 frames in the start.
