LONDON -- Juan Martin del Potro said he felt alive again after beating Stan Wawrinka here, but the comeback kings dreams were ended by Lucas Pouille on Middle Sunday. Adidas Henrik Lundqvist Jersey .The Argentine was in trouble when the rain hit Saturday, and he did not live to see another day at the All England Club with Pouille sealing a 6-7 (4), 7-6 (6), 7-5, 6-1 win and going through to face Bernard Tomic in the last 16.Of course I got frustrations, Del Potro told a news conference. I feel sad for my loss. But in the end that means Im still having the fire on myself, and thats good.He told Pouille to shut up during a row over a baseline call moments before play was suspended Saturday for darkness with the Frenchman leading two sets to one.The only drama when play resumed Sunday on Court 12 came when world No. 30 Pouille struck a line judge in the face with a serve as he went 4-1 up in the decider. He went over to check on her, but she appeared to be fine before departing the court.In the end it was more disappointment for Del Potro. His win over Wawrinka?had been one of the stories of the tournament, as he had endured a torrid time with injury since reaching a career-high ranking of No. 4 in 2010.?Just 20 years old when he ended Roger Federers streak of five straight titles at Flushing Meadows to win the 2009 US Open, Del Potro -- now 27 -- has undergone four wrist surgeries when he looked poised to be a force at the top of the mens game.He entered the tournament here ranked 165th, his once-fearsome backhand still a work in progress as he rebuilds strength, and he paid the price for a lack of match-fitness.Im so glad to have the chance to play tennis again after almost three years, said Del Potro, who pushed Novak Djokovic to five sets in the semifinals on his last appearance here in 2013. I want to be better in the future. But I know its a very long road to get better and get 100 percent.One match for me means I have to prepare mentally, physically, doing my treatments on the wrist like one month. And after the match I got exhausted in every match. I dont have too much time to recover between matches after Wawrinka.I finish really, really tired this tournament. Yesterday was even worse than today. My body is hurting everywhere, but thats normal after a big match against Wawrinka. I have to keep working hard, because in the future I will need to be ready between matches and feel better physically than today.Im not hurried to play better, Im not hurried to grow up in the ranking. Im just have to stay patient and keep working hard, trying to get better as soon as I can.Im very confident, very positive with the situation. I already played three matches in this tournament against big players. I did a great match today against the 30th player in the world, and I was there very, very close to win that match.So thats mean my level could be better in the end of the year or the next season, too. But I need to work hard my physically, my wrist, my backhands. Then I will be competitive in all surface and against all the players.It is a shame for Del Potro that he stumbled, given his struggles over the past few years, but Tomic will be happy hes not facing the 6-foot-6 Argentine next week.I like Juan. Hes a great guy, amazing player, Tomic had told a news conference Saturday. If he wins, then its probably a player I dont want to play. I have lost to him twice. Hes a Grand Slam champion and one of the most respected players on tour thats now fighting to come back in the mens game at the top level.Instead it will be Pouille next for the Australian. I dont know too much about him [Pouille], and Im sure if he wins, then I have to assess and sit down with Lleyton and the team and discuss what the best situation is to play him, Tomic said. Cheap New York Rangers Jerseys . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one.

LONDON -- Serena Williams and Viktor Troicki were fined $10,000 apiece on Saturday at Wimbledon for unsportsmanlike conduct.The biggest amount deducted from a players paycheck at this years tournament so far was the $12,000 for Britains Heather Watson, for jamming her racket into the grass.The No. 1-seeded Williams fine was from her second-round victory over Christina McHale at Centre Court on Friday. She smashed her racket repeatedly against the turf while sitting in her sideline chair after dropping the first set, then flung the piece of equipment so far behind her that it landed in the lap of a TV cameraman.Afterward, Williams said she knew she would lose some money and joked about having not yet met her quota for harming rackets this season.Ive cracked a number of rackets throughout my career. Ive gotten fined a number of times for cracking rackets. In fact, I look at it like I didnt crack one at the French Open or Rome, so I was doing really good, Williams said. I dont want to go too long without cracking a racket. You know, Im on track. I try to crack a certain amount a year. Im a little behind this year, so it was good.Troicki, a Serb seeded 25th, was punished for his tirade against chair umpire Damiano Torella at the end of a five-set loss in the second round on Thursday.Worst umpire ever in the world! What are you doing? Did you see the ball? Troicki screamed, also telling Torella: Youre horrible!The outburst was promptedd by a call as Troickis opponent, Albert Ramos-Vinolas, served for the match at 5-3 in the final set. Cheap Rangers Jerseys China. At 30-all, Ramos-Vinolas hit a serve that initially was called out by a linesman behind Troicki. It was not clear, exactly, who changed that ruling, but Torella announced the score had become 40-30, crediting Ramos-Vinolas with an ace and pushing him to match point.Later, speaking to a small group of reporters, Troicki said about Torella: He has no experience, no knowledge about anything. Hes just sitting there, calling the score, not trying to watch the ball.The umpire gave Troicki a warning for unsportsmanlike conduct. When play resumed, Ramos-Vinolas hit a serve that Troicki returned long with a backhand to end the match.After the two players met at the net for a handshake, Troicki approached Torella again, waving a hand at him and saying: Do you know what you did? three times.Troicki carried on, then headed directly from Court 17 to the tournament referees office to explain his displeasure.He should be also fined, if you ask me, Troicki said about the chair umpire. He should be the one whos fined. Im not saying he cost me the match, but he cost me an important point which could have changed the outcome of the match.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
