LONDON -- For Caroline Wozniacki, just winning a Grand Slam match these days would be nice.The former No. 1-ranked player came into Wimbledon unseeded at a major for the first time in eight years and with a world ranking of No. 45, her lowest since 2008.Faced with a tough first-round draw, the 25-year-old Dane departed quickly Tuesday after losing to 14th-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova, 7-5, 6-4, leaving her without a Grand Slam match win in 2016.Wozniacki also fell in the first round at the Australian Open and missed the French Open with a right ankle injury. Her overall record this year is 11-11.Its been a tough year in general, Wozniacki said, taking a philosophical tone. Its been some injuries. Its been some bad draws. Its been uphill. But you just have to keep fighting, keep going at it, keep working hard, and hope eventually thats going to turn and youre going to take the chances youre going to get.Thats really all you can do right now, she said.Wozniacki was ranked No. 1 for 67 weeks in 2010 and 2011 and reached two Grand Slam finals, finishing runner-up at the 2009 and 2014 U.S. Opens. This was her 10th appearance at Wimbledon, where she has reached the fourth round five times but never made it to the quarterfinals.Coming off the ankle injury, Wozniacki showed progress at the grass-court warmup tournament at Eastbourne, winning back-to-back matches for the first time since February. I thought I played some really good tennis in Eastbourne, she said. Obviously (I) was hoping I could step up from there and do more damage today. But it wasnt enough.Wozniacki played well against Kuznetsova, also a former No. 1 player. She pushed the Russian but didnt have enough to overcome her in a match played with the retractable roof closed over Centre Court because of rain.She played aggressively and stepped up when she had to, Wozniacki said. She did what she had to do today.For now, Wozniacki is planning to play hard-court tournaments in Washington and Montreal.Shes also awaiting a ruling on the appeal on her eligibility for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Wozniacki has been selected as Denmarks flag-bearer for the games, but has failed to meet the International Tennis Federations Fed Cup requirements.Obviously I want to play, she said. But if they decide that Im not going to play, then theres not much I can do about it.In addition to the injuries, losses and drop in the rankings, Wozniacki endured a well-publicized breakup in 2014 with golfer Rory McIlroy.Referring to the last year-and-a-half in general, she said: I mean, at one point youre just like, you know what, it has to turn, it has to go the other way eventually. Im just going to take the punches Im getting and just try and learn from it and try and move forward.During her injury layoffs, Wozniacki has kept busy with various off-the-court projects.If theres time left over, then I try and just have fun in life, she said. We only live once. We dont get a mulligan.One thing Wozniacki wont do is read about herself.I think if I read everything that was written about me the last 15 years, I think by now I probably would have jumped over a cliff, she said. I would rather not.---Stephen Wilson can be followed at www.twitter.com/stevewilsonap Charles Barkley Jersey . Nathan MacKinnon, Jamie McGinn and Jan Hejda also scored for the Avalanche, who won despite being outshot 38-23. MacKinnons goal, also on the power play, came with just over a minute remaining.

"We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Robert Covington Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. (STATS) -- During its run to a record five straight FCS national championships, North Dakota State had to go through Missouri Valley Football Conference rival South Dakota State twice.Those two victories were part of a long winning streak in the series for the Bison, but Saturdays visit from the Jackrabbits feels different.Thats because No. 8 seed SDSU handed top-seeded NDSU its only loss this season. The Bison, though, dont have revenge on their minds -- theyre just focused on reaching the semifinals.I dont even believe in the revenge factor, theyre excited about the opportunity to play, get a chance to play at home, said Chris Klieman, who finished fifth in the voting for the STATS FCS Eddie Robinson Award as FCS Coach of the Year.South Dakota State is the next game on the schedule and thats the one were getting ready for.The previous meeting didnt go well for NDSU (11-1). The Jackrabbits (9-3) stunned the then-No. 1 Bison 19-17 at the Fargodome on Oct. 15 when Taryn Christion threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jake Wieneke with one second remaining to end NDSUs 14-game winning streak. SDSU had dropped the previous eight matchups.That victory eventually gave the Jackrabbits the MVFCs automatic bid to the playoffs after they finished tied with the Bison for first place in the conference with a 7-1 record. NDSU won a share of its sixth straight conference championship.Even though the Bison are 17-0 at home in the FCS playoffs, Jackrabbits coach John Stiegelmeier thinks his team has a slight edge.We would be the most familiar with that facility in terms of playoff teams going up there, both in terms of conference play and playoff situations, he said. The environment last time we were up there did not affect our offense, and thats where it really has an impact.Christion, the MVFCs offensive player of the year, rushed for a career-high 141 yards in October to go along with 303 passing yards and two TDs. SDSU racked up 523 total yards, the second-most NDSU allowed all season, and the Bison gave up a season-high 220 rushing yards.You can go back andd go through the film of the previous game, either side of the ball both teams, and youre gonna see maybe some similarities because its who you are, Klieman said.dddddddddddd In the same respect theres a lot of different adjustments and wrinkles that both teams put in. ... You have to be able to adjust in the playoffs no matter what.SDSU had to adjust in its snowy playoff opener last weekend at home. Villanova limited SDSUs high-powered offense to 197 yards -- 284.7 below its season average -- before the Jackrabbits pulled out a 10-7 win when freshman Chase Vinatieri kicked a 40-yard field goal with 1:21 left.Bottom line is we did grind out a win, Stiegelmeier said. Our guys have learned to just accept a victory. Ive asked them after way too many games Can we play better? and that answers always a yes. It doesnt matter how well weve played. I didnt ask them that because I didnt want to bring up a feeling of not playing as well as we couldve.We got the win, weve moved on. Were one of eight teams left.NDSU had a much easier time last week in its first playoff game. Quarterback Easton Stick accounted for 307 total yards and passed for three touchdowns as the Bison rolled to a 45-7 win over Pioneer Football League champion San Diego.NDSU totaled 507 yards and rushed for 299. The Bison were held to season lows of 304 total yards and 161 on the ground in the first meeting with SDSU.Its a new game, its a new week, Klieman said. Were trying to go 1-0.This is the 106th meeting in a series that dates back to 1903. NDSU holds a 59-41-5 advantage and has won 13 of 15 matchups at the Fargodome.Theyve been here, done that, Stiegelmeier said. The fact that we beat them during the regular season doesnt matter to them. Theyre the No. 1 seed for a reason, we have to go to their place for a reason. We need to play our best football.The winner will face No. 4 seed James Madison (11-1) or No. 5 seed Sam Houston State (12-0) next week.
