PARIS – Eugenie Bouchard grew up admiring Maria Sharapova. Kyrie Irving Cavaliers Jersey . "First, I noticed her cute dresses and things like that when I was young," said the 20-year-old Canadian, who met Sharapova when she was just eight-years-old at a tournament in Miami. "As a child, I looked up to her and I remember watching her in the finals of Wimbledon and thought what she was doing was so cool and I wanted to do the same thing." Bouchard and Sharapova will play on Thursday in the French Open semi-finals. It is the second straight year that the two have met at Roland Garros with the Russian prevailing in straight sets in the second round a year ago. "For sure I respect her," said Bouchard. "But now were in the semis of a Grand Slam, so Im going to respect her but not put her too high on a pedestal and really just battle. Thats what its going to be." Sharapova may be seeded seventh, but she has been widely considered the favourite to win the title since the top three seeds – Serena Williams, Li Na and Agnieszka Radwanska – all lost in the first three rounds. And Sharapova is favoured to beat Bouchard (-325, 4/13 per BoDog) for the same reason she is expected to hoist the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen on Saturday: she has the experience. She made the finals here a year ago. She won the whole thing just two years ago. At the age of 27, she has already won the career slam and has an Olympic silver medal on her resume. "Achieving what she has, she is of course very strong mentally," said Bouchard. "It is one of her strengths. Im going to be ready for another battle. You know, the semis of a Grand Slam, thats what you have to expect. "Im just looking forward to the challenge." Bouchard is earning her own reputation for poise under pressure. She overcame a 2-5 deficit (two breaks) and a set point to win the opening frame against clay-court specialist Carla Suarez Navarro in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. Then, after dropping the second set 2-6, Bouchard dug out of a 1-4 hole in the deciding set by winning 12 straight points. She then served to stay in the match at 4-5, holding easily. "At the end of the day, whether I win or lose, I want to at least leave it all out there and try and at least battle. Im proud of the way I did that in both the first and third. Shes a great player and a really good clay courter, as well. I knew it was a tough battle, and thats exactly what it was today. Im just proud of the way I stayed in there." Bouchard appeared to show some nerves after wasting a match point, serving at 6-5, with a double fault. She was asked if that was a sign she is, after all, human. "I show Im human all the time," Bouchard noted with a smile. "Yeah, you know, its one of those things. I didnt really worry about it. I think thats the most important thing: I didnt see it as a big deal, and I just regrouped for the next point, which allowed me to just give me a chance to get in a position to have a match point again. "Even on the second match point I missed a ball, but I was trying to go for it, so I didnt worry too much, either. "I think that was a bit the theme the whole match: even if I was down 5-2 or 4-1 in the third, not to worry too much, keep going, keep going, keep going, and it paid off in the end." Bouchards mental toughness and aggressive play have earned her comparisons to Sharapova. Does she like that? "There are positives and negatives," Bouchard said. "Of course shes a great champion, so to be seen as the next of someone who has won four slams and has been No. 1 in the world, its a compliment. "But at the same time, of course, Im my own person and I just want to be myself on the court, and you know, try and achieve what I want to achieve and just be seen as that." Bouchard is the only womens player to make the semis at both slams this season. She is part of the future of womens tennis and looking to prove the future is now. Bouchard readily admits that back in January when she made that magical run to the Australian Open semis, she suffered from a bit of stage fright at the start of a straight-sets loss to Li Na. "I was maybe a little bit frozen at the beginning of that match," she said. "Ill be much more ready this time." Tristan Thompson Cavaliers Jersey . The Yankees made the moves before Tuesdays game against Baltimore. Robertson was listed retroactive to Monday. Robertson posted two saves in three games as the replacement for retired Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before getting hurt. Shaquille ONeal Cavaliers Jersey . Hamels threw seven sharp innings to earn his 100th career victory, Domonic Brown had a career-best five RBIs and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Cincinnati Reds 12-1 on Saturday night to end a four-game losing streak. . Not that Durant cared. The only streak he cares about is still intact.Each week, takes a look at the top available players in fantasy football ahead of the weekly waiver deadline. Quarterbacks Jake Locker, Tennesee Titans (vs. Dallas) Last Week: 22-33, 266 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs Depending on your league, Locker may already be on another teams bench, but he – and the rest of the Titans – looked good in beating what should be a strong Kansas City team and finishing in the Top 5 at his position. Ive always been a fan of Lockers game, save for his inability to stay healthy, but while hes on the field he may be a good option for a team looking for a QB. More good news: he plays Dallas brutal defence at home in Week 2. EJ Manuel, Buffalo Bills (vs. Miami) Last Week: 16-22, 173 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT; 19 rushing yards, 1 TD This is a more desperate move than Locker, but Manuel did finish just outside the Top 10 at his position in Week 1. His value appears tied to his rushing ability. If Manuel can manage some yards on the ground and, better yet, a rushing TD like last week, hell be valuable. But you certainly cant count on that every week and Manuels weekly rank should drop off moving forward. Running Backs Darren Sproles, Philadelphia Eagles (at Indianapolis) Last Week: 11 carries, 71 yards, 1 TD; 4 receptions, 14 yards Sproles could easily be taken in your league, but he came into the year ranked in the 40s at running back, so theres at least a chance hes still available. Sproles is a backup running back that racks up fantasy points, its that simple. He proved right away being behind LeSean McCoy wont hinder him as much as some feared. Justin Forsett, Baltimore Ravens (vs. Pittsburgh) Last Week: 11 carries, 70 yards, 1 TD; 5 receptions, 14 yards The Ravens were quick to replace Bernard Pierce with Forsett as lead back in the (now permanent) absence of Ray Rice. I dont believe the journeyman Forsett will hold that role all season but while he has it, hes a decent RB2 option for a needy-team. Terrence West, Cleveland Browns (vs. New Orleans) Last Week: 16 carries, 100 yards With Ben Tate injured, it appears West will get first crack at replacing him. West impressed in Week 1 after a weak pre-season and should be owned. The Browns could have a very good run game this year with all three backs to receive significant carries averaging more than six yards per carry against the Steelers. If you dont want to get in the West bidding wars, Isaiah Crowell, who looked good in scoring two touchdowns in Week 1, is worth a look as well. Wide Receiivers Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina Panthers (vs. Kevin Love Jersey. Detroit) Last Week: 6 receptions, 92 yards, 1 TD I was high on Benjamin in the preseason and he showed in Week 1 he very much could become this years Keenan Allen. Working with backup QB Derek Anderson, Benjamin put up a borderline WR1 performance. That isnt likely to change when Cam Newton returns to the helm in Carolina next week; the rookie receiver and QB developed quick chemistry this preseason. Steve Smith, Baltimore Ravens (vs. Pittsburgh) Last Week: 7 receptions, 118 yards, 1 TD Smith is a gamer. He was a gamer in Carolina and it appears hes still a gamer now that hes in Baltimore. Most of the veterans points that pushed him to a WR1 performance in Week 1 were off an 80-yard reception, but he led the league in targets the first week of the season. While he may not have the big plays every week, it appears hell get more than enough work to put up solid performances moving forward. Allen Hurns, Jacksonville Jaguars (at Washington) Last Week: 4 receptions, 110 yards, 2 TDs I dont know who he is either, but he had a massive Week 1 for the Jaguars and the roughly 1% of fantasy teams that owned him. That number is sure to go up next week, but there are a couple reasons to be weary: hes still a Jaguar, and they arent likely to be scoring much points this year, and he only caught four of his nine targets, which could lead QB Chad Henne to look elsewhere in the future. Greg Jennings, Minnesota Vikings (vs. New England) Last Week: 6 receptions, 58 yards, 1 TD Jennings was owned a lot more at this time last year than he is now, but after a disappointing first year in Minnesota, fantasy players werent so quick to bite. While Cordarrelle Patterson had more points in Week 1, many were gained through rushing yards and Jennings finished with more targets against the Rams. Plus the Vikings passing attack could be potent enough to warrant both receivers being owned. Tight Ends Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts (vs. Philadelphia) Last Week: 4 receptions, 64 yards, 1 TD Allen was a bit of a forgotten man after losing a lot of time to injury last year. But the former first round pick, now healthy, put up a strong game against the Broncos in Week 1. The only thing preventing Allen from becoming a bona fide TE1 is teammate Coby Fleener, who actually got more targets than Allen in Week 1. Fleener is not a good tight end however, and once the Colts finally recognize that Allens targets and numbers should improve.
