If Andy Murray reaches the final of the 131st Wimbledon, he will Authentic Brian Propp Womens Jersey surely be as sore and spent as on any of the previous three occasions he has contested the title, because no amount of upbeat chat can disguise either the discomfort of his aching hip or the magnitude of the unknown challenge ahead of him.Murray insists all is well with an injury that is not only at least seven years old but last week hurt so much he knew he could not defend his title unless he gave it complete rest. That is more than a minor niggle.To his credit, he came through the first examination of his resolve with a quick and convincing win over the world No135 Alexander Bublik in the first round on Monday and now prepares for an altogether different contest against his friend Dustin Brown on Wednesday.“I think it will be http://www.officialphiladelphiaflyers.com/Adidas-Brian-Propp-Jersey another tough match,” Kerber said. “But I’m on my way to recapturing my form.”Wimbledon tradition dictates that the defending singles champion begins the defence of her title on the first Tuesday. However with Williams expecting a first child, it was Kerber who was given the honour. The German has had a fitful year, and lost in the first round in Paris, but initially she played as if she had never been away from SW19 as she broke serve twice to go 3-0 up in the first set.Yet suddenly and strangely, her forehands kept finding the net or going long. That gave Falconi confidence. She had already showed she had a lovely touch – a feathered volley to save a break point in the third game was rapturously applauded – but now she was winning games, too. The America Darryl Sittler Womens Jersey broke back and kept it close throughout the rest of the first set before going down 6-4 in 48 minutes – but it was telling that Kerber had hit only eight winners to 13 unforced errors.The second set was also close but with it poised at 4-4, Falconi threw away her service game and Kerber needed no second invitation to wrap up the match.Afterwards she admitted that the pressure of being No1 for 33 weeks had not always been easy, but insisted her form is gradually returning.“It is something I have been dealing with since http://www.officialtorontomapleleafs.com/Adidas-Darryl-Sittler-Jersey I was 22 or 23 years old, off and on,” he said before heading for yet another ice bath. “It is sore, but I get through it. It is not like a horrific injury in my knee. In time, it is something I need to look after.“After the [French Open semi-final] match with Stan Wawrinka, I thought I was just a bit sore because it was such a long, tough match and I had not played many of those over the last couple of months. But then it did not really get better.“I was practising a lot on grass and preparing for Queen’s and my hip was getting gradually worse. Then I said: ‘I need to stop now because this is actually affecting the way I am playing and affecting my practices.’ I knew if I had to go on court like that I could not serve and hobble around and get through matches. I needed to get ready to play and that meant taking a break.”Logic – or what passes for it in modern tennis – suggests Murray should beat Brown handily when the world No1 plays the man ranked 97th. Yet the application of reason has turned nearly every expert into the tennis equivalent of Michael Fish lately. At Roland Garros, Murray beat the odds to reach the semi-finals for the fourth time despite looking drained to the point of collapse at the start of the fortnight; here, he retrieved much of his credibility against Bublik after losing to the world No90 Jordan Thompson in the first round at Queen’s.
