Nothing that I have to worry about Antworten

Shanghai, China (SportsNetwork.com) - Top-seeded reigning two-time champion Novak Djokovic and former world No. 1 Roger Federer reached the third round, while former top-ranked great Rafael Nadal was sent packing Wednesday at the $4 million Shanghai Masters tennis event. Playing with a bout of appendicitis this week, the second-seeded Nadal lost his second straight match, this time in 6-3, 7-6 (8-6) fashion at the hands of fellow Spanish left-hander Feliciano Lopez. Nadal also came up a quarterfinal loser last week at the China Open, his first tournament back after missing three months of action with a right wrist injury. For sure [I dont feel] perfect, said Nadal. Its the same way that I felt before. A little bit more dizzy now. But thats it. Nothing that I have to worry about. When you lose a match, it is not the moment to talk about obvious things. I lost. Feli played better than me. Nadal, who has been taking antibiotics for the appendicitis, began feeling pain in his abdomen on Saturday, and the next day went to a hospital where he learned he had the early stages of the condition. Nadal said he opted for antibiotics rather than undergo surgery right away. The French Open champion said the risk of his condition getting any worse after a few days of steady improvement is always very, very low. The 2009 Shanghai runner-up said he will talk with his doctors when he returns to Spain about whether hell need to have the appendix removed. Meanwhile, the current world No. 1 Djokovic handled Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-3, 6-4 and the third-seeded Federer barely survived against Argentine Leonardo Mayer, 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (9-7), in 2 hours, 42 minutes, as Mayer led 5-2 in the third-set tiebreak before the Swiss legend fought back to advance at Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena. The 2010 Shanghai runner-up Federer saved five match points on Wednesday. It was the second-most match points he has saved in his career. Federer saved seven match points in a first-round win over Scott Draper in Cincinnati in 2003. Djokovic is undefeated in his last 11 matches in Shanghai and is looking to lift the trophy here for the third year in a row. Already a Masters winner in Indian Wells, Miami and Rome this season, the 27-year-old star is chasing his 20th Masters title. He dismantled Tomas Berdych for the China Open championship last week. Djokovic beat Juan Martin del Potro in last years Shanghai finale. Another top-five upset came when former top-10 Frenchman Gilles Simon foiled fourth-seeded Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka, 5-7, 7-5, 6-4, on Day 4. And American Jack Sock posted a big upset by tackling seventh-seeded U.S. Open runner-up Kei Nishikori 7-6 (7-5), 6-4. The Japanese star Nishikori was fresh off his titles in Tokyo and Kuala Lumpur and had won 15 of his previous 16 matches on tour. Eleventh-seeded former world No. 1 Andy Murray continued his recent run of fine play by besting 6-foot-8 Pole Jerzy Janowicz 7-5, 6-2. Murray captured his first title in 15 months on Shenzhen, China, two weeks ago and was a semifinalist in Beijing last week. Murray titled here in Shanghai in 2010 and 2011 and was the runner-up in 2012. In other action involving top-10 seeds, No. 5 David Ferrer overcame Slovak Martin Klizan 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4; a No. 6 Berdych drubbed Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-1; Argentine wild card Juan Monaco doused No. 8 Canadian Milos Raonic 5-2, retired; and Frenchman Julien Benneteau upended No. 10 Grigor Dimitrov 7-5, 6-3. Raonic was last weeks Tokyo runner-up to Nishikori. Also on Wednesday, 13th-seeded John Isner edged out fellow American Steve Johnson 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (9-7); 14th-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut outlasted Canadian Vasek Pospisil 7-6 (7-1), 3-6, 6-4; Tunisian qualifier Malek Jaziri beat Chinese wild card Chuhan Wang 6-0, 6-4; and Russian Mikhail Youzhny snuck past Croat Ivan Dodig 7-6 (9-7), 6-7 (4-7), 6-3. The third round will be staged on Thursday, as Djokovic will face Kazakhstans Mikhail Kukushkin, Federer will meet Bautista Agut, and the 2011 Shanghai runner-up Ferrer will tangle with the resurgent Murray in some featured matches. This weeks big winner will collect $798,450. Air Jordan China . On Tuesday, the star questioned whether that was still the case. Speaking to reporters at a charity event, Johnson said: "I just kind of wonder sometimes: Is this still the place for me?"

The 22-year-old slugger, who is no stranger to adversity, made up for it at the end. Fake Jordan .com) - Colorado forward P.TORONTO -- They called it a serious mistake that Jonas Valanciunas must learn from. But otherwise the Toronto Raptors players and staff are standing behind their starting centre after he was charged with drunk driving. The 21-year-old apologized to his teammates, and will play in Wednesdays game against the visiting Philadelphia 76ers, but news of his arrest drew a large contingent of media to practice on Tuesday and negative attention to a team bound for the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. "(I was) disappointed a little bit," Raptors GM Masai Ujiri said of his reaction to the arrest. "As an organization, its not something we take lightly, its not something I feel we are just going to brush aside. (But) hes a young kid ... I look at all of you here and I wonder what we were all doing when we were 21, so there are mistakes that are made." Valanciunas was arrested early Monday morning in Wasaga Beach, Ont., a popular vacation destination for college students about 100 kilometres north of downtown Toronto, and charged with having more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. Police say they began investigating after a report that a vehicle went through a drive-thru with open beer bottles visible. The Lithuanian met with Ujiri for an hour on Monday, and had his "face in his hands," the GM said. He also met with Tim Leiweke, the president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. "I think he feels he let his teammates down, he let his fans down, the organization," Ujiri said. "Thats Jonas, hes a great kid. And I think he made some kind of a mistake, but I think the most important thing is its not going to happen again, and he understands that." Ujiri spoke to a media horde of more than 40-strong. There were nine television cameras. Valanciunas was not made available to reporters after what coach Dwane Casey said was a great practice by the sophomore centre, but issued a statement with an apology on Monday. "I hold myself to a high standard and take my role as a member of the Toronto Raptors very seriously," Valanciunas said. "I apologize to the organization, my teammates, my family and my fans, and regret any negativity this incident has brought upon them." Valanciunass first court appearance is scheduled for Collingwood, Ont., on April 22, which is a couple of days after the start of the playoffs. Valanciunas does not have to attend and so a lawyer will stand in for him. He still may face a suspension of a couple of games by the NBA, but that wouldnt come until the results of his trial which would likely be during the summer. The Raptors will decide on any further punishment such as a fine or suspension following the leagues ruling. Most of the Raptors and their families attended the Toronto Blue Jays game on a day off from practice Sunday. Ujiri said Valanciunas instead went to Wasaga Beach with his wife and some friends. Thhe seven-footer is averaging 11 points and 8.dddddddddddd rebounds a game, and his growth this season is a big part of why the Raptors are in third in the Eastern Conference and poised to win the Atlantic Division title. Casey spoke of Valanciunas much like he would a son. "Like I told him, Im upset with him and disappointed, but hes mine so we love him," Casey said. "He made a mistake, but like any other young man has probably done before, or had the opportunity before. We dont condone it, the organization doesnt condone it, and its a tough time of year to do it. But its happened. ... "We all make mistakes, its what we do after it that is how were going to be judged." Kyle Lowry said the young teammate that he views as a little brother was "sick right now" over the mistake. "Hes really hurt by it, hes really embarrassed by it, very disappointed in himself. I can tell you that for sure," the veteran point guard said. "Its just a mistake that he made, its unfortunate that it happened to such a good kid in JV, but it happened, hes 21, hes going to learn from it. Im sure hell never make that mistake again," he added. Lowry said his advice was: "Just be more responsible. We have all the benefits of having drivers and taxis. Thats it, be more responsible." Raptors all-star DeMar DeRozan said the incident was a regrettable mistake, but added the players support for each other in any situation is part of what has made Toronto one of the best teams in the East this season. "At the end of the day, were all human. We can look at everybody in here and ask them: have they done something wrong, or made a mistake in life. Its part of life. Its something you learn from and grow from." "No matter what guys go through, were always there for them, family, whatever it may be, somebodys kid is sick ... its always something, and were always there for one another. Thats big because you dont get that with every team that you play for." The Raptors said the negative news wont be a distraction to the team that has won six of its last seven games. "Not at all," Lowry said. "We had a great practice today, really spirited, really competitive, really positive vibe in there." "Ive been coaching since 79 and Ive seen a little bit of everything," Casey added. "This is very serious, a very serious matter, but its not enough to distract the team and that type of thing. "His teammates were very supportive of him, and to them its a great lesson also, the focus and the discipline you have to have in your own life to go forward." The last Raptor to be charged with drunk driving while still a member of the team was Dee Brown, who was stopped by police in 1999 in Toronto and charged with impaired driving and later convicted. But a judge found he was a victim of racial profiling and overturned the conviction. ' ' '
