of his past five outings, but Columbus

With an impressive showing as a member of Canadas Fed Cup team over the weekend, Blainville, Quebecs Aleksandra Wozniak reflects on her play and her preparation for Roland Garros in her personal blog on RDS.ca and TSN.ca. --- We took advantage of the opportunity to advance to World Group I at the Fed Cup for the first time in history by beating Slovakia last weekend, so were off to play next season as one of eight finalists in February! Playing at PEPS Stadium at Laval University, the facility was expanded to accommodate 3,500 people. While the stands werent completely filled as they were in Montreal last February, that didnt hold back the great atmosphere. People were encouraging us, shouting out our names and having fun on each point (though I had a very long match where I had to battle until the very end). My family and my friends were also among the crowd and it was really fun to learn as much as I did there. It wasnt just about me as I was playing - it was about playing for my country and all of those watching. The viewing public is important and I dont want to disappoint them, but I wasnt really dwelling on that kind of pressure at the time. I tried to stay in the present moment and simply enjoy the energy to try to give a good show and play a good game. Its always very important to do my best to win. People were just happy to be there and support us and it made for a crazy weekend! Just before the tournament, we spent several days training together in Quebec City and we had our official team dinner on Thursday night. We also took the time to work with Iris Setlakwe, as the fashion designer helped dress us for this special event (as was the case a couple of months ago in Montreal). We also got acquainted with other players and sponsors - a tradition followed by every delegation during the Fed Cup. It was also at this time that we did our traditional gift exchange. Our gift for the Slovaks - maple syrup! Never Give Up It was a bit hard early on in my opening match when I lost the first set. Jana Cepelova, ranked 52nd in the world, was very tough and had lots of confidence after a strong performance in Charleston. This is a player who went to the net a lot and never hit the same ball. Shes already beaten good players like Serena Williams and has the ability to change speeds during a point. She can make three rhythm changes by alternating her slice, or cushioning her forehand before suddenly attacking with lots of force and precision in the corners. Its not easy to guage a girl like this, as she was very gifted. That being said, it was necessary for me to raise my game up a notch and find my pace to reverse the trend. As this was the first time I was facing Cepelova, I was trying to get a read on her game at the start. It took me a little while, because it was not easy adjusting to the ball. I was hooked as I tried to avoid my earlier mistakes while trying to force errors. In short, it was a physical and mental challenge, coming back twice - in the second and third sets - as she was serving for the match. And that first victory on Day 1 was very important to set the tone for the competition. And all this time, captain Sylvain Bruneau was at my side to motivate me, telling me to remember what I should do and to always be alert. Its good to have the opportunity to rely on a coach and his advice during a match. In other tournaments, you cant ask for that much help so frequently. Finally, my next next Grand Slam stop is at Roland Garros. The challenge will be to adapt to the change from hard surface to clay. Ill be in full preparation this week in Montreal, playing on the clay courts of Uniprix Stadium at Jarry Park. Ill then fly off to Cagnes-sur-Mer in France, for the qualifications next week and then make a stop in Prague before the qualifications for the Internationaux de France - which begins on May 21. https://www.facebook.com/WozAlekshttp:/ … om/Twitter @alekswoz Anthony Hitchens Jersey .

The 76ers also received a 2015 second-round draft pick in the deal.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Columbus Blue Jackets havent won a game in over two weeks, but the struggling club hopes to change that Monday when the Florida Panthers visit Nationwide Arena. Columbus has lost six straight games (0-5-1) since picking up a home win over San Jose on Nov. 15. The win against the Sharks is just one of two victories for the Blue Jackets during a 2-13-2 stretch that dates back to late October. However, the Blue Jackets have had a run of success against the Panthers recently and with two straight games coming up against Florida, Columbus has a good chance to return to the win column soon. Columbus has won eight straight against the Panthers, who havent tasted victory in this series since notching a road win on Nov. 21, 2007. The Blue Jackets own an all-time 11-3-1 record in this series and are also riding a five-game home winning streak versus Florida. The Blue Jackets also will visit the Panthers in their next game on Thursday. This is not a home-and-home set, however, because Florida will visit Detroit tomorrow before meeting up with Columbus in South Florida. Although the Panthers have struggled in the series against the Blue Jackets, the club is coming into Mondays clash off consecutive victories and will try to post its first three-game winning streak of 2014-15. Florida recently capped a three-game homestand with two straight victories over Carolina and Ottawa. The Panthers recorded a 1-0 win in Wednesdays tilt against the Hurricanes and posted a 3-2 win Friday against the Senators. Roberto Luongo left Wednesdays game with an arm injury and was unable to suit up against Ottawa. However, Al Montoya filled in nicely for Floridas No. 1 netminder on Friday, stopping 22-of-24 shots to help the Panthers down the Sens. Montoya also made 22 saves to help complete Wednesdays shutout over the Canes after Luongo left midway through the second period. Jimmy Hayes scored the game-winning goal in the third period to help lead the Panthers past Ottawa. Dylan Olsen and Sean Bergenheim also scored for Floorida, which hasnt won three in a row since a five-game tear from Dec.dddddddddddd 10-19 of last season. The Panthers assigned goaltender Dan Ellis to San Antonio of AHL on Sunday, meaning Luongo should be able to at least suit up for tonights game. Its unclear if hell be starting or if Montoya will get the call instead. Columbus suffered its latest loss Saturday in Nashville, dropping a 2-1 regulation decision to the Predators. The score was tied at 1-1 after Ryan Johansen tallied the Blue Jackets lone goal less than four minutes into the third period, but Colin Wilson provided the game-winner with 2:12 remaining. Johansens goal came on the power play, while Curtis McElhinney kept his team in the game, stopping 40-of-42 shots in a tough loss. (The Predators) do a great job, said Columbus coach Todd Richards. They make it difficult executing, making plays coming out of your zone. Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to start tonights game. He has surrendered three or more goals in each of his past five outings, but Columbus No. 1 goalie also boasts a lifetime 6-1-0 record and 2.41 goals against average in seven games against the Panthers. The Blue Jackets, who have been decimated by injuries this season, have scored only five goals over their past four games. Columbus hopes forward Brandon Dubinsky can make his season debut and help boost the offense tonight. Dubinsky has yet to play this season after undergoing abdominal surgery, but he has been practicing with the club and is questionable for tonight. He was third on the team last season with 50 points. There is more bad news for Columbus, however, as center Artem Anisimov is expected to miss the next 2-to-3 months because of a torn triceps. Anisimov was hurt during this past Saturdays game against Nashville and was placed on injured reserve Monday. The 26-year-old Russian native has two goals and four assists for six points in 16 games this season, his third with Columbus. He also missed seven games earlier this season because of an upper body injury.
