points in the last eight games

Flushing Meadows, NY (Sports Network) - Reigning champion Serena Williams and second-seeded Victoria Azarenka were easy second-round winners, while Sara Errani became the highest-seeded loser thus far at the U.S. Open. The world No. 1, four-time U.S. Open titlist Williams blitzed Kazakhstans Galina Voskoboeva 6-3, 6-0 in 69 minutes at Ashe Stadium in a match that was postponed because of rain on Wednesday. Williams has lost only four games through two matches this week. "Ill have to think about it and see what I can do better, but it was OK," she said. The reigning U.S. and French Open champ beat reigning Australian Open queen Azarenka in last years finale in New York. The 16-time Grand Slam champion Williams is also a two-time runner-up in Flushing. Up next for Williams will be another Kazakh, Yaroslava Shvedova. Azarenka advanced to the third round in similar fashion, taking down 2009 U.S. Open runner-up Aleksandra Wozniak 6-3, 6-1. The former world No. 1 and reigning Aussie Open champ offered just 19 unforced errors and was not aced on her way to victory. "It was a good match I think," said Azarenka. "Towards the end I felt like I let her play a little bit and she really went for her shots, so I had to adjust a little bit better." Meanwhile, Flavia Pennetta sent her fourth-seeded fellow Italian Errani packing 6-3, 6-1 Thursday at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The 31-year-old Pennetta reached three U.S. Open quarterfinals from 2008-11 before missing last years edition of her best Grand Slam event due to a right wrist injury. "I tried to play aggressive from the very beginning and I was perfect today, I think," Pennetta said. The 26-year-old Errani, who was the French Open runner-up and a U.S. Open semifinalist last year, has now lost four times in six meetings with Pennetta. "I dont want to play. I dont want to stay out there on the court," Errani said following her lopsided setback against Pennetta. In the final match of the evening, veteran Slovak Daniela Hantuchova defeated 17-year old American Victoria Duval, 6-2, 6-3. Duval, who won her first ever match at the Open on Aug. 27 when she shockingly knocked off 2011 Open champ and 11th-seeded Samantha Stosur, had 27 unforced errors compared to just 18 from her counterpart. Sixth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki dropped just three games in taking down Russian Chanelle Scheepers 6-1, 6-2 while seventh-seeded former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova drubbed Serb Bojana Jovanovski 6-2, 6-4, and eighth- seeded German left-hander Angelique Kerber held off promising Canadian Eugenie Bouchard 6-4, 2-6, 6-3. Resurgent Serb Jelena Jankovic, seeded ninth at this fortnight, whipped Russian Alisa Kleybanova 6-3, 6-2, and 10th-seeded Italian Roberta Vinci overcame Czech Lucie Safarova 4-6, 6-1, 6-2. The 24-year-old Kleybanova returned to the WTA earlier this month after battling Hodgkins lymphoma, a form of cancer, over the last two years. The French Open quarterfinalist Jankovic is a former world No. 1 who lost to Williams in the 2008 U.S. Open finale. Former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic blasted Romanian Alexandra Dulgheru 6-2, 6-1, while Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki, seeded 16th in Flushing, drilled Argentine Paula Ormaechea 6-2, 6-3. The Serbian star Ivanovic is a former French Open champ who reached her first-ever U.S. Open quarterfinal last year. Hot 21st-seeded Romanian Simona Halep continued her recent winning ways with a 6-2, 6-1 rout of Croat Donna Vekic. Halep headed to New York having captured titles at four of her previous seven events, including last week in New Haven where she upset the 2011 Wimbledon titlist Kvitova in the final. In some other second-round action involving seeds, No. 14 Russian Maria Kirilenko won 6-3, 6-1 over Portuguese Michelle Larcher De Brito, Japans Kurumi Nara surprised No. 19 Romanian Sorana Cirstea 7-5, 6-1; Italian Karin Knapp upended No. 22 Russian Elena Vesnina 6-1, 6-4; No. 24 Russian Ekaterina Makarova doused American Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-4, 6-4; No. 25 Estonian Kaia Kanepi dismissed Slovak Anna Schmiedlova 6-4, 6-1; No. 26 Alize Cornet of France subdued Croat Ajla Tomljanovic 6-2, 6-2; and No. 27 Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova held off Chinese Peng Shuai 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. The former top-five star Kuznetsova captured the U.S. Open title in 2004 and was the runner-up in New York in 2007. American Alison Riske posted an upset by taking out 28th-seeded German Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-2. Riskes third-round opponent will be the formidable left- hander Kvitova. Additionally, American Christina McHale bested Ukrainian Elina Svitolina 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, Israeli Julia Glushko upended American Sachia Vickery 7-5, 6-3, Italian Camila Giorgi swept Taiwanese Su-Wei Hsieh 6-4, 7-6 (10-8) and the aforementioned Shvedova handled Austrian Patricia Mayr-Achleitner 6-2, 6-3. The 21-year-old New Jersey native McHale will face Ivanovic in the round of 32. Justin Blackmon Jersey .

The Washington Capitals had it all against the New Jersey Devils and it showed.Braden Holtby made 21 saves, Nicklas Backstrom had two goals and an assist and Alex Ovechkin scored a highlight-reel goal as the Capitals continued to roll with a 4-0 victory on Saturday night.I think were doing what weve wanted to do all season, but were now finding a way to do it consistently, Holtby said after posting his second shutout of the season. Were using our speed and size to our advantage. There arent a lot of teams who can match up with us there. We now know its our strength.Washington has been playing to its strength lately and it is showing in the standings. The Capitals have points in eight straight games (6-0-2) to get right in the middle of the playoffs chase approaching the halfway point of the season.Its tough to get points in this league, so consistency is everything, said defenceman Mike Green, who opened the scoring in the second period. Weve gotten points in the last eight games and thats good, but were not in any position to sit back and relax.Holtby has been outstanding in the current run. He has started every game and is now 11-3-3 in his last 17 starts.Hes really stepped up and saved us a lot of the time, said Backstrom, who has five goals and four assists in his last six games. Thats what we really needed.Cory Schneider had 17 saves for the Devils, who again failed to win consecutive games for the first time since the middle of last month. New Jersey is now 3-8-4 in its last 15 games.If you are going to move up in the standings you have to go on a run, Schneider said. Every team seems to do it or has a streak where it gets them in the mix. It almost seems like for the last season and a half weve had trouble stringing together a hot streak. Again we can talk about it all we want but we just have to go out and do it.This was the fourth of five games between the teams and Washington is 3-1.dddddddddddd Holtby has started all four, and his only loss was 1-0.After a scoreless and listless first period, Green opened the scoring by ending an 18-game goal-scoring drought. Backstrom did most of the work by lugging the puck from behind the Devils net to the blue line. He slid the puck to Jack Hillen and the little-used defenceman found Green for a ripping shot from above the right circle.The Devils came close to tying the score just before Backstrom stretched the lead to 2-0.Defenceman Peter Harrold floated a shot from the right point that landed in the crease. Travis Zajac and Steve Bernier tried to reach the loose puck but Backstrom helped clear and seconds later beat Schneider from the left circle after taking a drop pass from Jay Beagle.Holtby maintained the two-goal lead by stopping Mike Sislo on a breakaway minutes later.Ovechkin, who had two shots bang off goalposts earlier in the game, ended all doubt at 7:16 of the third period with his 15th goal. It was a beauty. He took a loose puck in front of the Washington bench, skated up the ice, deked around defence Jon Merrill while avoiding a hip check and backhanded a shot into the top of the net as he was going down.I was just making a move. It was a good play, Ovechkin said.Schneider got a little revenge with 9:12 left in the game when he stoned Ovechkin on a penalty shot.Backstrom closed out the scoring with an empty-net goal, his 10th of the season.NOTES: The Devils called up D Adam Larsson and Sislo from Albany (AHL) earlier in the day. Only Sislo played, replacing slump-ridden Michael Ryder, who has not scored a goal in 20 games ...Hillens assist on Greens goal was his first point of the season. ...Washington is 8-1-2 against Metropolitan Division opponents, and had three of next four games against teams from the division.
