five-year deal that includes $26 million guaranteed Antworten

MELBOURNE, Australia - Two days made a world of difference for Maria Sharapova at the Australian Open. Manute Bol Jersey .Sharapova needed just 61 minutes to beat Kazakhstans Zarina Diyas 6-1, 6-1 on Friday, ensuring there were no match-point worries this time.On Wednesday, No. 2-ranked Sharapova faced two match points but escaped with a 6-1, 4-6, 7-5 win over fellow Russian Alexandra Panova, a qualifier ranked No. 150.Against Diyas, Sharapova won the first set in 26 minutes and was broken to open the second, but responded by winning the next six in a dominating roll.I think I rebounded really well, Sharapova said. I had a good hit yesterday and just kind of thought a little bit about what I wanted to try to achieve tonight no matter who I played.I tried to be a bit more aggressive ... she can be a tough, tough player to play against if you give her the time to charge down the line like she likes to do, step down and hit flat, low. So she has that capability.Sharapova will try to be as dominating on Sunday when she plays Peng Shuai of China, a six-time WTA finalist but whos never broken through for a tournament win.Peng is a natural right-hander who hits two-handed on both sides. Sharapova has a 4-1 record against her — Pengs only win came in Beijing in 2009 — and this is the third time in a row they will meet in a Grand Slam tournament — Sharapova won in straight sets at Wimbledon in 2011 and the French Open in 2012.But the Chinese player made it to the fourth round at Wimbledon last year and the semifinals at the U.S. Open.Weve always had good matches, Sharapova said. Shes had great success in the last few Slams. Shes a bit of an untraditional player with two hands on both sides. Thats a little tricky. But I enjoy playing against her.A win on Sunday could give Sharapova a quarterfinal against seventh-seeded Eugenie Bouchard, the other highly-ranked player in her quarter of the draw.The top half of her draw still features No. 3-seeded Simona Halep, meaning Sharpova could meet the Romanian in the semifinals, a repeat of their French Open final last year won by Sharapova. Chris Webber Jersey . Tepesch, back from the minor leagues, earned his first major league victory in more than 10 months and the Rangers edged the Seattle Mariners 4-3 on Wednesday. Thomas Bryant Jersey . Basketball fans around the globe will be watching as Kobe Bryant makes his season debut - 240 days after tearing his left Achilles - against Toronto, a team he has used as his own personal punching bag. . In five games last month, Billings led all scorers with 11 goals, 27 assists and 38 points as the Rock posted a 2-3 record.DAVIE, Fla. -- New Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey stepped to the microphone and apologized for his hoarse voice, explaining he wore it down in the past few days trying to build a winner. Hickey then introduced two big acquisitions in the first hours of free agency -- 316-pound left tackle Branden Albert, and 300-pound defensive tackle Earl Mitchell. Both signed Wednesday less than 24 hours after they agreed to terms. Hickey said he was optimistic defensive tackle Randy Starks would re-sign after becoming a free agent Tuesday. Starks has spent the past six seasons with the Dolphins, and the two sides were negotiating a deal Wednesday. The Dolphins shopping will continue, with additional offensive linemen, a tight end and a linebacker the most pressing needs. Theyre trying to end a 13-year drought without a post-season victory, and eager to put in the past their bullying scandal that involved tackle Jonathan Martin. The acquisition of Albert was a step in that direction. Hell take over the position manned at the start of last season by Martin, who was traded late Tuesday to the San Francisco 49ers for an undisclosed draft choice. "Im going to be here to play left tackle and make a difference," Albert said. "Thats the reason Im here. I feel like its a team I can help the most and make my legacy even better." Albert signed a $47 million, five-year deal that includes $26 million guaranteed. Dolphins officials,, accompanied by a couple of players, treated Albert to dinner Tuesday night to celebrate the agreement. Admiral Schofield Jersey. "Probably the happiest person at the dining room table was Ryan Tannehill," Hickey said. "He was really excited to have a player of his calibre on our team." Albert will protect the blind side for Tannehill, who was sacked a franchise-record 58 times last year. Mitchell was also part of the dinner celebration. He signed a $16 million, four-year deal. Like Albert, Mitchell envisions better days ahead for the Dolphins. "Im coming to produce and definitely trying to help this team reach new heights," Mitchell said. "Thats my reason for being here. Im trying to get us to a Super Bowl." Mitchell blossomed in his fourth NFL season with the Houston Texans last year, when he became a starter and won raves for the way he clogged the middle. He has been playing defence only since his junior year at the University of Arizona, and he and Hickey both said hes still improving. Alberts reputation has also been on the rise, and he made the Pro Bowl last year with the Kansas City Chiefs. He has had a home the past three offseasons 45 minutes from the Dolphins complex and will now move north, eager to go to work with his new team. "I live in downtown Miami, but I probably wont anymore because of the commute," he said with a smile. "Ive got to find a place close to the facility." ' ' '
