TORONTO -- Montreals Eugenie Bouchard has been named Tennis Canadas female player of the year after an impressive debut professional season. Air Force 1 Prezzo Basso . The 19-year-old climbed over 100 spots on the WTA rankings to end the year at No. 32. She reached her first WTA final at Osaka in October, defeated four top-15 players throughout the course of the season, and was named WTA Newcomer of the Year. "Its great to be recognized with these awards for the first time," Bouchard said. "2013 was a great season for me with so many firsts and so many highlights that I will always remember. I learned a lot in my first full year on the Tour. Im working really hard in my off-season and cant wait for next year." Bouchard, who became the first Canadian to win a junior Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon last year, started off her season having to play qualifying at WTA events. She made her first big push at the Premier tournament in Charleston in April, where as a qualifier she reached the quarter-finals while defeating rising star Laura Robson and world No. 9 Samantha Stosur. She then made the semifinals at Strasbourg before playing in her first career Grand Slam main draw at the French Open, where she fell to Maria Sharapova in the second round. At Wimbledon, she upset No. 12 Ana Ivanovic on Centre Court to reach the third round. She added another semifinal at Quebec City in September before eliminating No. 13 Sloane Stephens and No. 10 Jelena Jankovic at Tokyo on the way to a quarter-final finish. In her second-last tournament of the year, Bouchard made her first WTA final, where she lost to Stosur in three sets. Bouchard also went 6-1 while representing Canada in Fed Cup play. "Eugenies career is just starting but what she has already accomplished in one short year on the WTA tour is very impressive," said Michael S. Downey, president and CEO, Tennis Canada. "Her ceiling is so high, and Eugenie is so focused and determined to create even more success for herself and her country. She is well on her way to becoming a star not only in Canadian tennis but all over the world. Congratulations to Eugenie, and best of luck in what Im sure will be an exciting 2014." Ottawas Gabriela Dabrowski was named Canadas female doubles player of the year, reaching two finals on the WTA circuit this season. Balenciaga Triple s Scontate . Im very excited about the playoffs, particularly in the Western Conference with amazing match-ups, as well as the wonderful local story in the Toronto Raptors. It should be a blast. Here are my predictions, but based upon my lousy prognostications during the NCAA Tournament, you might be better off going the other way on some of mine - particularly with the Raptors, who I hope and pray are able to win an incredibly difficult match-up.

Ireland was the last unbeaten side in the championship after France fell to Wales on Friday, and was favoured to end a three-match losing run to England with a side with more than twice as many caps, rampant momentum, and added incentive to celebrate Brian ODriscolls world record-tying 139th test cap. . Pretty good hitting, too. Dan Haren pitched six innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading Los Angeles to another win over the skidding Atlanta Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night.WINDERMERE, Fla. - Starting with the click of a camera before he could even hit his opening tee shot, Tiger Woods received a rude reminder of what his golf has been like during a lost year due to back troubles.He didnt hit it close enough. When he finally did, he couldnt make putts. He failed to break par for the 10th time in the 12 rounds he has completed since he first returned from back surgery in June. He was closer to the bottom of the pack than the top.There was one surprise that was hardly pleasant: Woods returned to golf on Thursday, but his short game did not.Nothing illustrated his frustration more than the par-5 13th hole, when Woods thought he was on the verge of having a short eagle putt and instead made bogey. His roll turned back from going to the top ridge near the flag and rolled off the green into a collection area. It took him three chips just to reach the green.One was too soft, didnt quite reach the green and rolled back toward his feet.The next one was the ugliest one of the day, a stubbed chip from a steep swing that moved the ball only a few feet.And when he repeated his error on the par-5 17th — only once this time — that cost him another easy birdie, he was resigned to rough start in the Hero World Challenge. Woods wound up with a 5-over 77, his worst score ever in his unofficial event, his second-highest score of the year, and a spot in last place among 18 players at Isleworth.Welcome back, Tiger.One of those days where nothing went my way, Woods said.Alas, he still has his health, and that was the lone bright side. Woods took on any shot, perhaps the best example on the par-5 seventh when he took a powerful lash with a long iron from a severe slope on the back end of a bunker. He finished about pin-high, although in a bunker.It took two shots to get out of the sand. And he missed the putt. Bogey.Woods was 11 shots behind Jordan Spieth, who looked just as good in central Florida on Thursday as he did in Australia on Sunday. Spieth, coming off a six-shot win in the Australian Open, ran off five straight birdies around the turn and made sure he left Isleworth with a smile by saving par with a 12-foot putt.Im excited about how laast week went and Im kind of riding the momentum, Spieth said. Nike Air Force 1 07 Scontate. Im going to give it my all these last few days.Zach Johnson was one shot behind. He won last year at Sherwood, so maybe its the calendar instead of the golf course. Henrik Stenson also shot 67. He won in Dubai two weeks ago in the season-ender on the European Tour. Rickie Fowler shot 67. He narrowly missed a playoff in the World Golf Championship in Shanghai last month.The other guy with a 67 was Steve Stricker. He hasnt played since the PGA Championship, which if nothing else shoots a big hole in the theory that he was rusty. So was Stricker. And then there was Jason Day, who hasnt played since the Tour Championship. He played with Woods and shot 71.Today was weird, Woods said. I didnt feel like I hit it that bad. My short game was awful. Didnt make anything. ... Bad chips, bad putts and a couple of missed shots on the front nine on the wrong side compounded the problem.It was weird for the guy watching him, too.Day played a few holes with Woods earlier in the week and thought he was swinging it fine. He had no reason to be alarmed by the short game. But when the scores counted, he saw a different Woods with a wedge in his hand.It was just surprising today to see him stub a lot of chip shots, Day said. That uphill into the green is very, very difficult, but to see that many out of Tiger Woods is very surprising.Day felt sorry for Woods, an emotion that used to be rare whenever Woods played.Its just painful, he said. Youre watching the guy who won 14 majors and 79 PGA Tour wins, and to do stuff like that, thats a lot of rust there.Day didnt touch a club for more than two months as he worked to get his back healthy. He was asked if there were any similarities to their games, considering both hadnt played in some time because of injury.Ive just not 14 less majors than him and about 77 less PGA Tour wins, Day said.Such is the perspective necessary going into Friday. It was Woods first round since Aug. 9 at the PGA Championship. This event offers world ranking points, but theres really nothing to lose for anyone. And Woods still gets three more days to figure it out. ' ' '
