Flushing Meadows, NY - Top seed Novak Djokovic beat Argentinas Diego Schwartzman in three sets Monday night in their first-round match at the U. Willian Jersey .S. Open. Djokovic started his quest for an eighth Grand Slam title with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 win in the final match of the night at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The Wimbledon champion Djokovic has a run of four straight finals at the Open, including a championship in 2011 against Rafael Nadal. Djokovic lost last year to Nadal, but the Spaniard isnt defending his title this year due to a right wrist injury. Playing his first career tour-level main draw match on hard courts, the 22- year-old Schwartzman was no match for the worlds No. 1 player. The Serbian breezed through the first two sets in 56 minutes. Schwartzman won the first game of the third set and then had a chance to break, but a smiling Djokovic roared back and evened the set with an ace. There were a couple of hiccups from Djokovic, as Schwartzman broke to tie it at 3-3, but he couldnt follow it up. Djokovic broke back and then held at love before closing it out. "Its never easy to start a U.S. Open smoothly," said Djokovic, who had 27 unforced errors, three more than Schwartzman. Up next for Djokovic will be Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu, who topped Gilles Muller of Luxembourg in a five-set marathon. "Im sure well both be fresh and motivated to play," Djokovic said. "Hes a very solid player from the baseline, but Ill focus on myself and hope to do as well as I did tonight." Former champion Andy Murray was tested in his first-round match Monday, while third seed Stan Wawrinka and No. 5 seed Milos Raonic won their openers in straight sets. Murray, the eighth seed and former world No. 2 star, battled cramps before holding off wily Dutchman Robin Haase 6-3, 7-6 (8-6), 1-6, 7-5 in 3 hours, 8 minutes. "I dont know what it was. I was cramping after 1 hour and 45 minutes," Murray said. "I didnt know what to do in the third set. I started to get it in my laterals and forearms when I was serving. I didnt know whether to conserve energy or try to finish it. "I tried to hang around and tried to play without using my legs much. I managed to get through. These slams are physically challenging, but I need to work out why it happened. It shouldnt have happened, regardless of the temperature." Murray overcame a 1-4 deficit in the fourth set to get off the court before a fifth. The two-time Grand Slam champion was the U.S. Open winner two years ago and runner-up in Flushing in 2008. His second-round opponent will be German Matthias Bachinger. Wawrinka, this years Australian Open champion, topped Czech Jiri Vesely, 6-2, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-3). Wawrinka, who is from Switzerland, reached his first U.S. Open semifinal last year before losing to Djokovic. The Canadian Raonic eased past Japans Taro Daniel, 6-3, 6-2, 7-6 (7-1). Raonic, who has reached the fourth round here the last two years, is trying to build on a semifinal appearance at Wimbledon when he lost to Roger Federer. Ninth-seeded former Australian Open runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France snuck past gritty Argentine Juan Monaco 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-1. In other opening-day action involving seeds, No. 16 Tommy Robredo of Spain defeated Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4; promising Aussie Nick Kyrgios upended No. 21 Russian and two-time U.S. Open semifinalist Mikhail Youzhny 7-5, 7-6 (7-4), 2-6, 7-6 (7-1); No. 22 German Philipp Kohlschreiber handled Argentine Facundo Bagnis 6-2, 7-6 (7-3), 6-3; No. 23 Argentine Leonardo Mayer was leading Albert Montanes 6-2, 3-0 when the Spaniard retired; Benoit Paire took out No. 24 fellow Frenchman Julien Benneteau 7-6 (7-4), 5-7, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4; 30th seed Jeremy Chardy of France toppled Colombian Alejandro Falla, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 7-5, 6-4; and No. 31 Spaniard Fernando Verdasco outlasted Slovenian Blaz Rola 6-3, 3-6, 7-5, 1-6, 6-4. Several other men moved on, including Italian players Andreas Seppi and Simone Bolelli. Federer, the second seed and five-time U.S. Open champion, plays his first- round match Tuesday night against Australian Marinko Matosevic. Federer hasnt won the U.S. Open since 2008, the last of his five consecutive championships at the event. Spains David Ferrer, the No. 4 seed, faces Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia and Herzegovina during the day session at Louis Armstrong Stadium. Other seeds to see action on Tuesday include, No. 10 seed Kei Nishikori, 12th seed Richard Gasquet and 13th seed John Isner, who takes on fellow American Marcos Giron. Fikayo Tomori Jersey . LOUIS -- Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks won the matchup of unbeaten teams. Chelsea Jerseys .

Scans revealed a second grade tear which could keep him out for a reported four to six weeks. http://www.chelseasoccerjerseysonline.com/womens-ramires-chelsea-jersey/ . The New York State Supreme Court only partially dismissed the lawsuit, meaning the case could be headed for trial. The tour announced a year ago that Singh would be suspended for saying in a Sports Illustrated story that he took deer antler spray, which was believed to contain the banned substance IGF-1.Two teams in the headlines will do battle in the Western Conference semifinals when the Oklahoma City Thunder host the Los Angeles Clippers in the series-opener Monday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena. For the second-seeded Thunder, "Mr. Unreliable" became something of a rallying cry. The Oklahoman ran that headline describing Kevin Durant, who will probably be handed the leagues MVP award before a home game during this series. Durant responded with 36 and 33 points in the final two games against the Memphis Grizzlies, both double-digit victories for OKC in elimination games during the first round. "Hes one of the best players on the planet," Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said of his superstar. "Hes going to continue to help us win games and move us forward, not only with his shot-making, but his playmaking." Sadly, the Clippers headlines were of a much more serious tone during the first round against Golden State. Their owner, Donald Sterling, was caught on tape making racist comments. It affected the team in its Game 4 loss, then, before Game 5, NBA commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life and prompted the Board of Governors to force Sterling to sell the team. Through this tumultuous time, the third-seeded Clippers hung on for a Game 7 win over the Warriors. "I just wanted us to win the game," said Clippers coach Doc Rivers. "Not because of all of this stuff, butt this team just needed this win. John Obi Mikel Jersey. I thought our guys fought. The adversity, they went through it. It drained them and they found enough energy to find a way to win the game." Each team features two superstars. For the Thunder, Durant averaged 29.9 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 blocks against the Grizz. Granted, Durant shot 44 percent and 32 percent from 3-point range, which are low numbers by his standards. Russell Westbrook averaged 25.6 points in the Grizzlies series, but he took 23 shot attempts a game, which was the same number as Durant. Westbrook shot 38 percent from the field and committed 4.9 turnovers per game. For LA, Chris Paul is the leader and scored 22 points and handed out 14 assists in the Game 7 victory. Blake Griffin blossomed into a well-rounded offensive machine. And special mention to Clippers big man DeAndre Jordan, who averaged 12.1 points, 15.1 rebounds and 4.0 blocks against the Warriors. During the season, the two squads were evenly matched. The Thunder have won five of the last seven meetings, but the two sides split four games this season and each team managed a win on the road. The Thunder were eliminated in this round last season by the Grizzlies when Westbrook got hurt in the first round against the Houston Rockets. The Clippers have never advanced past the second round in franchise history. Game 2 will be Wednesday night in OKC.
