PARIS -- Eighth-seeded Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium comfortably beat Yvonne Meusburger 6-1, 6-3 at the Open GDF Suez on Thursday to set up a quarterfinal match against top-seeded Maria Sharapova of Russia. Markus Golden Jersey . Flipkens needed only one hour to wrap up the victory against the Austrian player, converting all four of her break points. Elina Svitolina of Ukraine and Germanys Andrea Petkovic also advanced easily. Svitolina beat Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan 6-1, 6-2 and next plays either third-seeded Sara Errani or Karin Knapp -- the Italians were playing their match later Thursday -- while Petkovic beat Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic 6-4, 6-2. Petkovic next faces either Frenchwoman Alize Cornet or lucky loser Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, who replaced second-seeded Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic after she pulled out because of a sore throat. "I really wanted to play, but I had to see the doctor because I wasnt feeling well," Kvitova said. "When I was trying to warm up this morning, after 10 minutes I realized that I couldnt breathe, so unfortunately I have to pull out." Andy Lee Jersey . As if he had been rehearsing it, Vasquez looked around with a grimacing stare as he clinched two fists and flexed his muscles. What do you think of DeMar DeRozans face after he hits a big shot, he was asked moments earlier. David Johnson Jersey . Lisicki beat South African Chanelle Scheepers by a 7-5, 7-6 (7-1) margin. Next up for the Wimbledon runner-up will be Slovenian Polona Hercog, who outlasted Czech Petra Cetkovska 6-4, 5-7, 6-1. http://www.azcardinalsfanspro.com/Black-Rodney-Gunter-Cardinals-Jersey.html?cat=896 . The veteran NFL receiver received his work permit and is in Montreal for the start of the Alouettes rookie camp. Johnson even took in the Montreal Canadiens Game 5 win over the New York Rangers at the Bell Centre Tuesday night.Add underinflated footballs to the list of incidents giving Bill Belichick a reputation for guile and playing above the rules.Softer footballs wouldnt explain all of a rout that earned the New England Patriots a spot in the Super Bowl. But its another example of Belichicks reputation of searching for edges and bending any rules until he gets caught.Vague injury reports. Spygate. Signing players with intel on opponents. And now, an open NFL investigation into whether the team cheated during its AFC championship win.Because its the Patriots and they have a history, that brings in a different issue, former All-Pro running back Jerome Bettis said on ESPN. Theres some type of culture there thats conducive to cheating and thats a problem.Team officials on Wednesday did not respond to a request for comment from Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady or team owner Robert Kraft.Belichick no longer gets the benefit of the doubt among fans and those in football circles, even those who think hes the best coach in the league. Earlier this month, Hall of Fame coach Don Shula called him Beli-cheat.It all traces back to a reputation for gamesmanship that blossomed after the three-time Super Bowl winners last title in 2004.In 2007, Belichick was fined $500,000 and the team was fined $250,000 and stripped of its 2008 first-round draft choice by the NFL for videotaping New York Jets signals during a 2007 game. At the time, opponents wondered whether he taped practices, too.Last year, Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine suggested Belichick might have gotten a copy of the Jets playbook through Alabama coach Nick Saban, an accusation denied by Saban and then-Jets coach Rex Ryan.Belichick has signed players days before the Patriots faced their former team, opening up new avenues of intel. Six days before the opener against Miami this season, a 33-20 loss, the Patriots signed safety Don Jones a day after he was cut by the Dolphins. He played nine games for New England before being cut and re-signing with the Dolphins.Belichick also likes to tweak the NFL on injury reports. For years, he listed Tom Brady as probable even though he didnt miss practice and played the games. And hes been known to list close to 20 players on the report, most with minor ailments.And one week before questions of air pressure, some people questioned whether Belichick was bending the rules in a playoff win against Baltimore by using a four-man offensive linemen formation for three plays on a touchdown drive that helped the Patriots rally from a 14-point deficit. The formation — a backup tight end lined up as a tackle-eligible and a running back lined up as an ineligible receiver spplit wide — wasnt illegal, only creative and intentionally deceptive. Adrian Wilson Jersey. .The NFL continued its investigation Wednesday into whether the Patriots snuck underinflated footballs into their 45-7 win against the Colts. Underinflated balls are considered easier to throw and catch, and the league has strict protocols for air pressure and who can handle footballs before and during games. Each team provides its own footballs for use on offence, which are inspected. Tampering or switching footballs can result in $25,000 fines, or worse.We are continuing our review and will provide information as soon as possible, league spokesman Brian McCarthy said.ESPN reported Tuesday night, citing anonymous sources, that the NFL found 11 of 12 footballs provided by the Patriots were not properly inflated, while balls used by the Colts on offence met league standards.The issue has drawn strong reaction from players, league executives and other NFL personalities who are debating whether the issue affected the Pats-Colts matchup and the sport itself.Colts linebacker Erik Walden said on Twitter: patriots motto if u aint cheating then u aint tryin before following up by saying the Patriots deserved credit for the win.His teammate Dwayne Allen tweeted, in part: They could have played with soap for balls and beat us. Simply the better team.Pittsburgh Steelers President Art Rooney said he wouldnt consider this matter serious, saying kickers used to manipulate footballs.This rule where we use two different sets of balls is relatively new and frankly Im not sure why we came to this conclusion, Rooney said. I assume this will be something the competition committee looks at. I think we all should use the same ball and not have each side kind of have their own footballs available to them. Thats my view of it.In Seattle, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said the issue wont have any effect on the Super Bowl, even if its against the rules. He said he doubts anyone will be suspended or that anything will happen, unlike when the league threatened to keep running back Marshawn Lynch from playing in the NFC championship game if he followed through on plans to wear gold shoes.Whatever they did, the risk reward was greater. They were trying to suspend Marshawn for gold shoes, Sherman said. That really affects the game if you suspend Marshawn for gold shoes. But then youve got balls being deflated and thats the issue.___AP Sports Writers Will Graves, Howard Ulman, Tim Booth and Mike Marot contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/ap_nfl___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
