BIRMINGHAM, England -- Ana Ivanovic captured her first grass court title after almost a decade of trying on Sunday after a straight sets win over Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova at the Aegon Classic. The former world number beat Zahlavova-Strycova, 6-3, 6-2, with her opponent also playing in her first major tournament final. Although Ivanovic started shakily for the second day in succession, and dropped serve immediately, she recovered quickly, her heavy ground strokes and willingness to attack soon dominating her unseeded opponent. It suggested that, at 26, not only can she adapt to a variable surface, but underlined this as her best year so far since 2008. It was Ivanovics 37th win and her third title of the year, putting her level with Serena Williams and Maria Sharapovas three. The Serb couldnt contain her happiness at conquering her doubts about playing on grass. "On grass you really dont have time to hesitate," she said. "I tried to shorten my swing and move forwards. You really have to go after your shots. Its important to be clear in your mind." Ivanovic will move up to world number 11, well positioned to make another move during Wimbledon, which would lift her back into the top ten for the first time in five years. If she needed an omen suggesting she might continue this streak into the grass court Grand Slam, which starts in eight days, it came with the holding her latest trophy - the Maud Watson Cup, the same one as that presented to the English woman after she won the first ever Wimbledon, in 1884. Could Ivanovic actually win the games oldest title? She was understandably cautious. "Its exciting and a new challenge," she said, "just knowing that its never over and you always have a chance."

Solomon Elimimian did not make the trip with the team after suffering what appeared to be a right leg injury in the teams regular season finale against the Calgary Stampeders. John Lynch Jersey . First reported by FOX Sports Ken Rosenthal, its unknown if the impetus for the deferral proposal came from players or management, but it never left the preliminary stages.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Carter Hutton knows hes not Pekka Rinne, so it makes no sense to even try.Instead, the Nashville Predators backup goaltender, thrust into a starting role while Rinne recovers from a sprained knee, figures its better to just stick with what works for him.I just keep it simple, play my game and control what I can, Hutton said. The guys battle hard in front of me and try to make the first save here and try to give us a chance to win every night.The formula worked perfectly in a 4-0 romp over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday. Hutton stopped all 21 shots he faced for his second career shutout as the Predators won in regulation in Pittsburgh for the first time since 2004.Gabriel Bourque, Roman Josi, Eric Nystrom and Mike Fisher scored for the Central Division leaders, who ended a difficult post All-Star road trip through St. Louis, Colorado and Pittsburgh a respectable 1-1-1.We felt like lately weve been playing hard games, especially out of the break, Nashville forward Mike Ribeiro said. We thought we could play better in front of our goalie. Got on our forecheck, were pressing and able to create turnovers.Hutton improved to 3-1-2 while temporarily filling in for Rinne. The Predators ended a five-game losing streak to Pittsburgh by taking advantage of sloppy play by the Penguins, who have lost six of eight.Nystrom and Bourque pounced on Pittsburgh turnovers — one of them by captain Sidney Crosby — to give Hutton all the support he needed.Marc-Andre Fleury made 20 saves for the Penguins but received no help from Pittsburghs sputtering offence.We had some mistakes that ended up in the back of our net and were playing up hill from there, Crosby said. We still had a lot of time to get back in the game, but we have to figure out how to score goals.The Penguins have scored just twice in their last three games, both in an overtime win at New Jersey on Friday in which they took 43 shots. Pittsburgh kept Hutton a little busier two days later but spent most of the afternoon playing from behind as Nashville made former Penguins forward James Neal a winner in his return to the city where he became an All-Star.Neal spent three-plus seasons with the Penguinss, becoming a 40-goal scorer being shipped to Nashville last June on a draft-day swap for Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling.dddddddddddd While Neals scoring is down a bit, the Predators are off to the best start in the franchises history. He was held without a point in 15:09 of ice time but provided a nice screen in front on Fishers 12th goal of the season that made it 4-0 midway through the third period.By then, Nashville was firmly in control thanks to more than a little help from the Penguins.Josis slap shot through traffic zipped past Fleurys glove 4:05 into the game and Bourque doubled the lead less than three minutes later when Pittsburgh defenceman Simon Despres attempted clearing pass from the corner instead went right into the slot and onto Bourques stick. He slammed it past Fleury and the Predators had matched their combined goal total in their previous two visits to Consol Energy Center.You just cant make plays like that, Penguins coach Mike Johnston said. That wasnt a good choice by (Despres).Hutton rarely needed to be spectacular but made a couple of pretty saves when the Penguins were pressing in the second period. He stuffed a hard-charging Crosby at the end of a power play then turned aside a breakaway by Spaling and a wrist shot from in close by Paul Martin.Nystrom put the notion of any sort of Pittsburgh rally to rest with less than a minute to go in the second. Taylor Peck poked the puck away from Crosby as Crosby attempted to exit the Pittsburgh zone and slipped a pass to Nystrom, who was behind two Pittsburgh defencemen. Two flicks of the stick and Fleury was badly out of position. Nystroms sixth goal of the year pushed it to 3-0 and the Predators cruised.NOTES: Fisher has 12 goals and 10 assists in 25 games since returning from an Achilles injury. ... Pittsburgh played its fifth straight game without forward Evgeni Malkin, who is out with an undisclosed injury. Malkin skated with the team on Saturday and could return at some point this week. ...
