Sydney, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Third-seeded former champion Agnieszka Radwanska moved on, while former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki retired from her first-round match Monday at the Sydney International tennis event because of a wrist injury. The fourth-seeded Wozniacki dropped the opening set to Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 6-4, then called it quits with the second set even at 1-1. The U.S. Open runner-up Wozniacki was coming off a loss to Venus Williams in Saturdays ASB Classic final in Auckland. Meanwhile, Radwanska rolled past Frances Alize Cornet 6-3, 6-2 and fifth- seeded German and last years Sydney runner-up, Angelique Kerber, overcame Ukrainian qualifier Lesia Tsurenko 1-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Day 2. Sixth-seeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova posted a 7-6 (7-1), 6-2 win over Ukraines Elina Svitolina and seventh-seeded Slovakian, 2103 Sydney runner-up and last years Aussie Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova defeated French qualifier Kristina Mladenovic 6-2, 6-2. Another qualifier, last years Sydney champion Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria, knocked out eighth-seeded Italian Flavia Pennetta 6-3, 7-6 (7-4). Aussie Samantha Stosur, the 2005 runner-up at this hardcourt event, outlasted Czech Lucie Safarova 7-6 (7-3), 5-7, 6-3 in a match that exceeded three hours. Also on Monday, Aussie wild card Jarmila Gajdosova beat German Andrea Petkovic 6-1, 7-6 (7-5); Chinese Peng Shuai came back to best Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 1-6, 7-6 (7-1), 6-4; rising Spaniard Garbine Muguruza erased former French Open runner-up Sara Errani 6-0, 7-5; Czech slugger Karolina Pliskova dismissed Slovenian qualifier Polona Hercog 6-4, 6-4; and Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro outlasted former Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4). The second round will be staged Tuesday, including matches for top-seeded Simona Halep, No. 2 seed Petra Kvitova, Radwanska and Kerber. The French Open runner-up Halep, fresh off her season-opening title in China last week, will take on Pliskova, while the Wimbledon champion Kvitova will encounter Peng and Radwanska will face Muguruza. This weeks winner will take home $124,000. Timothy Fosu-Mensah Jersey .

The injury will keep the Finnish forward out of the Olympics. The 29-year-old has 20 goals and 41 points in 56 games this season, his first with Tampa Bay. Juan Mata Jersey .C. -- Authorities say the brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been shot and killed outside a South Carolina nightclub. Eric Bailly Jersey . During halftime, Love told The Associated Press he would receive treatment Saturday night and hoped to play Monday night against Houston. "I knew that my quad was bothering me pretty bad so I went out there and tried to move around a little bit and it just wasnt quite right," Love said. TORONTO -- Amis Holiday couldnt find a clear path to the winners circle in the Queens Plate or the Prince of Wales Stakes, so he got another chance in the Breeders Stakes. Under a clean ride from jockey Luis Contreras on Sunday afternoon, Amis Holiday cruised by horses on the outside to win the $500,000 final jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown. Second to Lexie Lou in the Queens Plate on polytrack and third to Coltimus Prime in the Prince of Wales on dirt, Amis Holiday validated trainer Josie Carrolls confidence by winning on the turf course at Woodbine Race Track. "I think it says a lot about this horse," Carroll said. "Not many horses can do all three and do them well, so I just think we have an exceptional horse." Amis Holiday, who beat long shot Interpol by three-quarters of a length, was the only horse to run all three legs of the Canadian Triple Crown. The morning-line favourite who went off as the second choice at odds of 2-to-1 showed no fatigue from his third race in seven weeks and looked to be on top of his game at 1 1/2-mile. After the Prince of Wales last month, Carroll had some reservations about bringing Amis Holiday back for the 124th running of the Breeders Stakes. He had never run on turf before, but she told owner Ivan Dalos it was worth seeing what Amis Holiday had to offer. "When I put him on the course he just lit it up. I said, Boy, weve got to take a serious look," Carroll said. "The last three days hes been wanting to eat meat. Hes been really serious. Here we are and he got it done." Amis Holiday got it done in 2:30.12, paying 6.70 to win, 3.80 to place and 2.80 to show. He impressed Carroll by saving some acceleration for the finish and galloping out strong. With Big Red Bugsy setting the pace as the early leader, Contreras kept Amis Holiday in stalking position "sitting behind the speed" but not too far back in the pack. "I wanted to keep him with the other horses, keep him busy," Contreras said. "I know my horse is very brave, hes been in trouble before. He was going great." Carroll told Contrreras that "trouble always seems to find this horse and instructed him to use the big, wide turf course at Woodbine.dddddddddddd The 28-year-old who won the 2011 Breeders Stakes aboard Pender Harbour did just that. "It was really well done on Luiss part," Carroll said. "I think because we run so few mile and a half races in North America, the jockeys dont ride as many and sometimes they think they have to take back, have to take back and when everybodys taking back youve got no pace in front and you cant close. "And I think he just really read this race well at every stage." Rolling along the outside down the stretch, Amis Holiday passed final-turn leader Squeeze the King and Interpol to hit the wire first. It was the horses "tremendous kick at the end" that Contreras said made it happen. Eurico Rosa da Silva, who rode Up With the Birds to last years Breeders Stakes title, thought he had a winning trip with Squeeze the King, who finished third. "When we got to the stretch, the pace was very slow, so I thought Im going to kick it in here because I had so much horse and I thought I was going to get the money," da Silva said. "But he ran a great race." Bangkok was fourth. Unikat, the post-time favourite at 2-to-1, finished last in the 12-horse field. Interpols jockey, Jesse Campbell, was thrilled the 18-to-1 shot made such a huge run to get up for second. "He was getting tired in the end, but he kept hanging in there," Campbell said. "He ran so hard. You have to be proud of him. The best horse won the race. Im tickled to run second." Carroll was glad to run second to Lexie Lou in the Queens Plate on July 6, even if a better trip mightve landed Amis Holiday in first with a legitimate shot at the first Canadian Triple Crown since Wando in 2003. "Its really tough to second guess a trip in the Queens Plate," Carroll said. "You cant take anything away from the filly that won that race. At the end of the day, she ran her race, she won it, she gets all the credit and we did it today."
