NEW YORK---Back on the Grand
Slam stage, Eugenie Bouchard
returned to her winning ways.
The seventh-seeded Bouchard
routed Olga Govortsova 6-2, 6-1
yesterday in the first round of the
US Open. The last time she played
at a major tournament, the 20-
year-old made history: the first
Canadian to reach a Grand Slam
But in the Wimbledon title
match, she was swept away by
Petra Kvitova 6-3, 6-0, and things
didn t go much better in her three
hard-court tuneups for the US
Open. Bouchard won just one of
her four matches, including an
upset loss in her opener in her
home tournament in Montreal.
But against the 117th-ranked
Govortsova, she had little trouble.
Govortsova, who has been ranked
as high as 35th, had won just two
main draw WTA matches this year.
Ana Ivanovic was feeling good
about her game coming into the
US Open, and it showed. The
eighth-seeded Serb beat American
Alison Riske 6-3, 6-0. Ivanovic
has won 48 matches this year, more
than anyone else on tour.
The 2008 French Open cham-
pion has struggled to get back to
that level but finally seems to be
inching closer. She returned to the
top 10 this month for the first time
in more than five years.
"The confidence is on a high
level," she said. "I had a great sea-
son behind me."
The 24-year-old Riske made a
breakthrough at last year s US
Open, reaching the fourth round
after an upset of Petra Kvitova. She
reached a career-high ranking of
No 40 this summer.
Ivanovic was broken in the first
game yesterday but quickly took
control. She s won three tourna-
ments this year, tied with Maria
Sharapova for second behind Ser-
Ivanovic upset Williams to reach
the Australian Open quarterfinals.
She was playing well heading to
Roland Garros but lost in the third
round to Lucie Safarova.
In her last tuneup before coming
to New York, Ivanovic beat Shara-
pova in the semifinals in Cincinnati
before losing to Williams in the
Samantha Stosur, the 2011 US
Open champ, also quickly dis-
patched a young American, beating
Lauren Davis 6-1, 6-4. The 49th-
ranked Davis fell to 0-3 at her
home Grand Slam event.
Svetlana Kuznetsova lost her
first-round US Open match for
the first time since 2005, the year
she was the tournament s defend-
ing champion. Kuznetsova, seeded
20th this time, was beaten 3-6,
6-2, 7-6 (3) by 82nd-ranked Mari-
na Erakovic of New Zealand.
Roger Federer and Serena
Williams played in the night session
at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Williams
faced American teen Taylor
Townsend, who s making her US
John Isner, a former top Amer-
ican college player, beat this year s
top American college player. The
13th-seeded Isner won 7-6 (5), 6-
2, 7-6 (2) against Marcos Giron,
who earned his first spot in a Grand
Slam tournament when he won
the NCAA title for UCLA in May.
Fellow American Sam Querrey
improved to 3-9 in five-set match-
es with a 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-
3 victory over Argentina s Maximo
Another American, Jack Sock,
retired from his match because of
a right calf injury. Sock was trailing
6-4, 3-6, 6-1 to Pablo Andujar of
Spain when he decided he couldn t
Tenth-seeded Kei Nishikori of
Japan cruised to a 6-2, 6-4, 6-2
victory over American Wayne
Odesnik, showing no apparent
effects from a toe injury that ham-

CORDOBA---German rider John
Degenkolb outsprinted Vicente Reynes
and race leader Michael Matthews to
win a hot, sunny fourth stage of the
Spanish Vuelta yesterday.
Degenkolb, who rides for Team Giant-
Shimano, surged past Matthews and
Reynes in the final kilometre of the hilly
164.7 kilometre (102 mile) ride from
Mairena del Alcor to Cordoba.
The 23-year-old Matthews, riding for
Orica GreenEdge, retained the overall
leader s red jersey. The Australian leads
Colombian Nairo Quintana by eight
seconds and Spain s Alejandro Valverde
by 15 seconds.
"I always need a day or two to adapt
to the heat and today it worked out,"
Degenkolb said. The German finished
57th in Monday s third stage as tem-
peratures soared to near 40 degrees Cel-
sius (over 100 degrees Fahrenheit) in
the southern region of Andalusia where
the race has been run the last two days.
With some 35 kilometres left, two-
time Vuelta winner Valverde broke away
from the pack, followed by Winner Ana-
cona of Colombia, Britain s Adam Yates
and Frenchman Romain Sicard.
The race then settled down as the
following pack caught up and riders
vied for tactical, team positioning until
two kilometres from the finish.
Race favourite Quintana lost four sec-
onds yesterday, but is still poised to
pounce on any mistake made by
Spanish five-time grand tour winner
Alberto Contador, who fractured his
right shin in a crash during the 10th
stage of the Tour de France on July 15,
has recovered race form and is 9th over-
all, 27 seconds behind.
Conditions are expected to be very
hot again for today s fifth stage, a 180
kilometre (111.8 mile) flat run from Priego
de Cordoba to Ronda, also in Andalusia.
minton champion Li Xuerui beat Den-
mark s Kristina Gavnholt at the world
championships yesterday, a victory
that marked the start of her campaign
to make amends for a traumatic defeat
in last year s final.
The top-seeded Chinese player came
through 21-13, 21-17 to reach the second
Though winning the women s title
this week will be important for her gold
medal hopes at the Rio Olympics in
2016, Li also wants to turn the page
on the defeat in 2013 before her home
crowd at the worlds in Guangzhou.
"I had to overcome that mentally
but I think I have done that. Winning
the London Olympics happened so early
and quickly for me, and to do well again
now I have to go step by step," the 23-
year-old Li said.
Her next opponent is compatriot
Han Li, seeded 12th.
Li s opponent in last year s final,
Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand, strug-
gled in the opening stages of a 21-18,
21-10 win over Spain s Beatriz Cor-
Intanon, seeded fourth, began flu-
ently before her three-point lead dis-
solved into a 16-17 deficit in the first
game. Several steadily-played rallies
were needed for her to reach safety.
The second game was more straight-
forward as she lined up a meeting with
Minatsu Mitani, the 16th seeded Japan-
ese player. (AP)
