NEW YORK -- Lindsay Davenport was in the middle of another major life milestone when she found out she had been elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The three-time Grand Slam champion got the call when she was in a hospital about to give birth to her fourth child in early January. With daughter Haven nearly 2 months old now, Davenport can start to reflect on the honour. "Growing up playing tennis, getting to the Hall of Fame was never even in my dreams," she said on a conference call on Monday after the class of 2014 was announced. "It seemed a little bit too big for me." The 37-year-old Davenport is thrilled that at the enshrinement ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island, on July 12, her 6-year-old son Jagger will get to learn about the sports history. He plays tennis, too. Davenport will be joined by five-time Paralympic medallist Chantal Vandierendonck of the Netherlands in the recent player category, coach Nick Bollettieri, executive Jane Brown Grimes and British broadcaster John Barrett in the contributor category. Davenport won the 1998 U.S. Open, 1999 Wimbledon, 2000 Australian Open and 1996 Olympic gold medal to go with three major doubles titles. The American held the world No. 1 ranking for 98 weeks in her career. That first major championship, at her home Grand Slam event, always will be special. "For any player who has ever played with insecurity, not sure where theyre supposed to be, how good they are, that really was a huge moment, not just in my career but for me personally," Davenport said. Bollettieri, now 82, has coached 10 players to the No. 1 ranking, including Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Monica Seles and Boris Becker. In 1978, he founded the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, the first full-time tennis boarding school. At a news conference in New York, Bollettieri acknowledged this was one of the few times in his life he felt at a loss for words. "To be standing aside some of the players Ive helped achieve what they are," he said, "is a dream that even Nick Bollettieri cant comprehend." Vandierendonck was a top Dutch player before she was injured in a car accident in 1983 and went on to become a pioneer in wheelchair tennis. Brown Grimes is a former managing director of the Womens Professional Tennis Council, now known as the WTA Tour Board; president of the U.S. Tennis Association; and president of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Barrett was the "Voice of Wimbledon" on the BBC from 1971-06. His wife, former top-ranked player Angela Mortimer Barrett, was inducted into the Hall in 1993. Agassi and Steffi Graf are the only other married couple in the Hall. Davenport wishes shed done a better job during her career of following Billie Jean Kings advice to "enjoy the process." But shes proud that she believes she always played the sport for the right reasons. "Youre not great at something unless you love it," she said. Leonard Williams Jets Jersey . The 36-year-old Beckham has been included in an 80-man shortlist which must be whittled down to 18 players as British footballers prepare to compete at the Olympics for the first time since 1960. Beckham will have his chance to convince Pearce that he can fill one of the three squad places for players over the age of 23 when the coach watches the Galaxys May 2 match at the Seattle Sounders. Leonard Williams Jersey . The United States boosted its chances of reaching the final 16 with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with France after a late strike by Daniel Cuevas. Spain, the tournament favourite, was a shadow of the team that routed the Americans 4-1. http://www.shopjetsusjersey.com/women-devin-smith-jets-jersey-sale/ .

Hi Kerry, So Shawn Thornton gets a slap on the wrist for the water squirting incident - a childish, unsportsmanlike and potentially dangerous act, but players can get two minutes for spraying the goalie with snow when sometimes inadvertently just trying to stop quickly? In your opinion, should the NHL ever consider taking a more serious look at such actions and add them as an infraction in the rule book? Mike Cimba Mike: The Player Safety Committee should be commended for their swift action to impose the maximum permitted fine under the CBA ($2,820.VANCOUVER - For the first time since 2011 the Grey Cup will be a neutral-site game, a factor that gives the Calgary Stampeders a big advantage over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.The Stampeders had a CFL-best 8-1 road record en route to posting a league-leading 15-3 overall mark. The Montreal Alouettes were the lone team to earn a home win over Calgary, claiming a 31-15 decision Sept. 21.Neither quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell nor CFL rushing leader Jon Cornish played in that contest, but both will suit up Sunday. The Stampeders committed three turnovers, including two by backup Drew Tate (interception, fumble).Hamilton finished tied with Calgary and Edmonton for the leagues best regular-season home record at 7-2, anchored by its stellar 6-0 mark at Tim Hortons Stadium. The Ticats stretched that to seven straight victories with their 40-24 East Division final win Sunday against Montreal.But the Ticats struggled on the road with a 2-7 record. Only expansion Ottawa (0-9) was worse.Calgary won both regular-season meetings between the division leaders, although only by a combined 13 points. The two teams havent played since the Stampeders 30-20 victory Aug. 16 at McMaster University, where Hamilton played early this season while its new stadium was being finished.Hamilton, which finished atop the East Division with a 9-9 record, will get its first look Sunday at a Calgary offence with Cornish in the lineup. He missed both regular-season meetings as injuries limited last years outstanding player to appearing in nine games.But the 30-year-old native of New Westminster, B.C., was still the CFLs rushing leader with 1,082 yards, averaging almost eight yards per carry. Edmonton held Cornish to 54 yards rushing on 14 carries in the West Division final Sunday but he still amassed 120 yards and a TD on four catches in Calgarys 43-18 victory.Despite Cornishs absence Calgary averaged a CFL-best 144 yards rushing per game. Hamilton counters with a defence that allowed a league-low 76.8 yards on the ground each contest.Trouble is, Calgary does more than just run well offensively.The Stampeders led the CFL in scoring (28.4 points per game), touchdowns (52), rushing TDs (25), surrendered a league-low 26 sacks and were the leagues least penalized squad. Calgary also committed the fewest turnovers (29).Mitchell, in his first season as Calgarys starter, had a solid 63.8 per cent completion average with 22 TDs and just eight interceptions.Calgarys defence will get its first look at Hamilton quarterback Zach Collaros. He missed both regular-season meetiings with concussion-like symptoms and the Ticats were 1-4 without him.ddddddddddddCollaros, also in his first season as a CFL starter, is an accurate passer (65.8 per cent) who had more TDs (15) than interceptions (nine). But hes also a dual threat, having rushed for 328 yards (5.8-yard average).Hamiltons main rushing threat is running back Nic Grigsby. The former Winnipeg Blue Bomber ran for 93 yards and two TDs against Montreal last weekend.While Cornish and Co. draw a lot of the headlines, Calgarys defence is very good. It allowed the second-fewest points (19.3 per game), forced the second-most turnovers (43) and finished tied with Edmonton for most interceptions (20). Jamar Wall was tied for the league lead (six) and veteran Keon Raymond had five.The unit also was minus top pass rusher Charleston Hughes for much of the season, yet still finished tied with Hamilton for fourth with 50 sacks. Shawn Lemon led the way for the Stamps with 13.Despite leading the league in fewest rushing yards allowed, Hamiltons defence was ranked eighth against the pass (260.4 yards per game). But in cornerback Delvin Breaux, the Ticats have a defender capable of playing man-up on an offences top receiver.Breaux was outstanding in the East Division final, holding Duron Carter, Montreals top receiver this season, to just three catches for 25 yards.Hamilton also has a big-play threat on special teams in returner Brandon Banks. The five-foot-seven, 153-pound Banks returned five punts for a playoff-record 226 yards and two TDs against Montreal and had a third called back because of a penalty.Calgary held Banks in check during the regular season as he recorded 10 punt returns for 116 yards and no TDs in the two matchups this year.Hamilton last won the Grey Cup in 99, ironically beating Calgary at B.C. Place Stadium that year. The Ticats also are making a second straight appearance in the CFLs biggest game after losing last years final in Regina to Saskatchewan.Calgary is chasing its second CFL title since head coach/GM John Hufnagel took over in 2008. The Stampeders also reached the 2012 Grey Cup, losing the 100th anniversary contest to Toronto at Rogers Centre.Calgary has been the class of the CFL since Hufnagels arrival, compiling an impressive 89-36-1 regular-season record. But the Stampeders have just the one title over that span.Hufnagel said that Calgarys mantra this season has been about finishing the job. Its difficult to see the Stampeders not doing that on Sunday.Pick — Calgary.Last week — 2-0.Overall record — 59-26. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
