PARIS -- Daniela Hantuchova will face top seed Maria Sharapova in the second round of the Open GDF Suez after beating Marina Erakovic on Tuesday. Hantuchova was leading 6-3, 3-0, and looked set for a straight-sets victory before Erakovic retired without citing a specified reason. Sharapova leads Hantuchova 8-1 in their head-to-heads, with the Slovaks only win against the four-time Grand Slam champion who has won every major when they first played 10 years ago. In other first round matches, there were wins for Frenchwoman Alize Cornet and Yvonne Meusburger of Austria. Cornet laboured past Magdalena Rybarikova of Serbia 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 and Meusburger beat Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany 7-5, 6-1. Cornet closed out the first set on serve after breaking Rybarikova twice. The Serb struggled on her serve in the second set but Cornet missed chances to break her midway through the set and then twice dropped her own serve. At 6-5 and 30-40 on Cornets serve, Rybarikova broke Cornet again to level the match. But then Cornet broke her twice at the start of the third set to open up a 3-0 lead and regain control. Drew Storen Jersey . Pillar is batting .305 with 17 extra-base hits, 19 RBI and five stolen bases in 34 games for Buffalo this season. The right-handed hitter had an International League high, 18-game hitting streak this season and currently owns an IL high 26-game on base streak. Tucker Barnhart Jersey .That sight softened the blow of what ended up as a 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.Knowing their teammate was fine after a scary headfirst fall in the opening minute of the game helped calm the Maple Leafs. Kunis was a guest on Kimmel last night and revealed a surprising side of herself that comes out when she watches sports. It turns out screaming something vulgar at professional athletes is therapeutic for Kunis. Pete Rose Jersey . "Win basketball games," Collins said. He will get at least a few more chances. Collins played the final minutes of a winning home debut with the Brooklyn Nets, who cooled off the Chicago Bulls with a 96-80 victory Monday night. Matt Harvey Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, The recent issues in the Boston-Pittsburgh game have highlighted a number of officiating, game control, and player sportsmanship aspects.Andy Murray is back in action as the ATPs Masters series starts in Indian Wells - who could the Scot face as he chases a first title of the season? Having taken time off following his run to the Australian Open final (another Novak Djokovic defeat), Murray plays for the second consecutive week having led Great Britain to a Davis Cup victory over Japan in Birmingham.Murray will take to the court aiming for a first title since becoming a father and also a first title in Indian Wells - his best showing in California coming when he lost in the final to Rafa Nadal in 2009, while last year he fell at the semi-final stage to Djokovic. The world No 2 blew away the cobwebs after his fatherhood-induced lay-off with victories over Taro Daniel and Kei Nishikori last week but who could he face in the US as he targets a first Indian Wells title. Spains Marcel Granollers has lost five of his six meetings with Murray Second Round - Marcel GranollersFirst up for Murray is Spains Granollers who beat Bosnias Damir Dzumhur for the loss of just one game in the first round. Murray has played the world No 92 on six previous occasions and has won five of them including each of the last three.Only two of the meetings have been on hard courts, Murray winning at the Australian Open in 2009 and the Toronto Masters in 2013 while the only win for Granollers came on the clay courts of the Rome Masters when Murray was forced to retired with the back problem that was to hinder him.Their last meeting came at the Madrid Masters last year, where Murray lost just two games on his way to claiming the title.It has been a low key start to the season for Granollers whose first round win over Dzumhur was only his third victory of the ATP main tour season.Third Round - Joao Sousa Murray beat Portugals Joao Sousa at the Australian Open earlier this year After starting with a Spaniard we expect a trip across the border for Murray and a familiar foe in the shape of Portugals world No 37 Joao Sousa - a man he has beaten on all seven occasions they have met.The pair clashed most recently in Melbourne at the Australian Open where Murray came through in four sets to seal a place in the last 16.Sousa takes on Argentinas Federico Delbonis in their second round match - should the Argentine prevail it will set-up a first ever meeting with the world No 2 and Murray should be wary as Delbonis has put together a couple of decent runs this season, most recently reaching the quarter-finals at the Rio Open.Fourth Round - Nick Kyrgios/Gael Monfils Nick Kyrgios celebrates after defeating Marin Cilic to claim his first ATP tour title Two players, one word - maverick. Whoever comes through from this section, Murray will know what to expect and that is the unexpected.Both men should come through relatively straightforward second round matches to set up a blockbusting third round encounter - both men have enjoyed good starts to the season with Kyrgios claiming his first career ATP title in Marseille and Monfils reaching the last eight at the Australian Open before losing in the final in Rotterdam.Murray will hope for Kyrgios given he has won all four meetings with the Aussie, the last three coming in majors including the Scots four-set first round victory at the US Open.Monfils has won two of his six meeetings with Murray, the world No 16 winning the last hard court meeting in 2010 although its Murray who won their most recent encounter, a five-set epic in the French Open quarter-final.ddddddddddddQuarter-Final - Milos Raonic/Tomas Berdych Murray needed five sets to see off Raonic in an epic Autralian Open quarter-final Into the last eight now and it looks like a big server for Murray - even if there is an upset in the quarter it looks most likely to come from a returning Juan Martin Del Potro or focused Bernard Tomic.Raonic is a man in form with an Australian Open semi-final and a Brisbane victory under his belt this season while Berdych is a perennial quarter-finalist, so Murray is likely to face one of these two with both men ranked in the top 14.Murrays won his last three against Raonic including a five-set semi-final victory at the Australian Open, while the Canadian beat Murray at Indian Wells in 2014, coming from a set down for the victory.Berdych, the world No 7, has lost his last three against Murray including each of the last seven sets and the Scot would rather face Berdych than Raonics booming left-handed serve.Semi-Final - Stan Wawrinka Stan Wawrinka is likely to be Murrays semi-final opponent, if they both make it that far Stan the man, seeded third in Indian Wells should come through his half of the draw in relatively comfortable fashion. In-form Pablo Cuevas could be a lively contender, having won twice this year, while Marin Cilic is a likely quarter-final foe.However Wawrinka would expect to come through, as another of the five men with two titles already under their belt this year - the 30-year-old won in Dubai and Chennai but was a surprise quarter-final loser in Melbourne.Murray will need to reverse a recent trend too as the Swiss ace has won the last three meetings between the pair without dropping a set and, even more impressively, has won the last nine finals he has contestedFinal - Novak Djokovic A familiar foe is likely to lie in wait if Murray can make it all the way.... Yep, you know who again! The reality is that the world No 1 and four-time Indian Wells winner will comfortably stroll through his half of the draw. Rafa Nadal, Kei Nishikori and the richly-talented Dominic Thiem are potential stumbling blocks but the only danger to Djokovic is himself.In his last tournament he withdrew from his quarter-final in Dubai with an eye problem, his only defeat of the season, but he showed no ill effects in leading Serbia to Davis Cup victory over Kazakhstan - they will now meet Murrays GB in the last eight.The Serb loves the hard courts of North America and with Miami to follow Indian Wells it is worth noting he has done the double of winning both events back-to-back on three separate occasions.Since the Wimbledon final of 2014, Djokovic has won 11 of the last 12 meetings between the pair and boasts a 22-9 career record over Murray who can take some comfort from the fact his last win came on the hard courts at the Toronto Masters last year.You can watch all the action from Indian Wells on Sky Sports Also See: Tennis on Sky Latest scores Murray on Sharapova Nadal on Sharapova Cheap Ducks Jerseys Cheap Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Bruins Jerseys Cheap Sabres Jerseys Cheap Flames Jerseys Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys Cheap Avalanche Jerseys Cheap Blue Jackets Jerseys Cheap Stars Jerseys Cheap Red Wings Jerseys Cheap Oilers Jerseys Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys Cheap Los Angeles Kings Jerseys Cheap Wild Jerseys ' ' '
