PARIS -- Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak defeated Chinas Zheng Jie 6-2, 6-4 Wednesday to reach the third round of the French Open. The Blainville, Que., native will face top-seeded Victoria Azarenka in the next round. In mens doubles play, the top-seeded team of Daniel Nestor of Toronto and Max Mirnyi of Belarus defeated Dutchman Robin Haase and Finlands Jarkko Nieminen 6-3, 6-4. Wozniak dominated in a near-flawless first set and overcame a lapse while leading by a break in the second. That miscue was partly caused by a long injury timeout taken by the No. 34-ranked Zheng with Wozniak leading 3-2. The pause left Wozniak to practise her serve on the court while a doctor and trainer spent at least 10 minutes examining and patching a heel blister on Zhengs left foot. Wozniak managed to get her concentration back when play resumed despite exchanging breaks with her opponent. A concluding break in the final game put the Canadian ahead and Zheng sent a forehand long to end the match. "Im content with this win," said Wozniak. "But the injury time was very long. You cool off a bit when that happens. After she was treated she still moved well, so it was not an easy win. "I came back and tried to keep the pressure on her. I played a good game at 4-4 to lead 5-4 and I finished it off well. It felt good to keep up the pressure." Wozniak won with 21 unforced errors and 20 winners, but committed six double-faults. She broke four times. Wozniak and Azarenka have never met at the WTA level, but played frequently in their junior days with the Canadian losing their first four meetings starting in 2004 in Wimbledon juniors. The Canadian won their last match -- six years ago in Pittsburgh at the Challenger level -- advancing as Azarenka retired in the second set. "It will be important to come out and only focus on my own game," said Wozniak. "I cant let her game or anything else bother me. I have to focus on each point and mix it up. "She was always tough in juniors. You cannot let her dictate play, you have to move into the rallies early and try to end the point." Azarenka said she is expecting a tough battle. "Shes a very difficult opponent whos been showing some real good tennis in the past," said the Belarusian. "I know she has had big wins in her career." "Ive played her many times before, shes a tricky opponent so I definitely have to come up with good tennis in my next round, and well see. But Im excited to play against her again." The win marked the fourth time Wozniak has advanced to the third round at Roland Garros, with her best performance a fourth-round showing in 2009 where she lost 6-1, 6-2 to Serena Williams. Wozniak won her doubles match later in the day. She teamed with Romanias Simona Halep for a 6-2, 6-3 win over Britains Anne Keothavong and Alexandra Cadantu of Romania. nike free 5.0 v4.

And for a change, that was actually a good thing for the New Orleans Hornets. Marco Belinelli had 22 points and six assists, Jarrett Jack added 20 points and nine assists and the Hornets earned a rare victory by routing the Golden State Warriors 102-87 on Wednesday night in a matchup of shorthanded teams out of the playoff chase. "Its past a mystery," coach said when asked where the scoring will come from in a shattered lineup each night. "Its more like a conundrum." Carl Landry also chipped in 20 points and eight rebounds to help New Orleans build a 20-point lead in the third quarter and cruise to victory for a change. The Hornets, last in the Western Conference, won for only the 13th time this season. "Teams better watch out," said guard Greivis Vasquez, who had six points, six assists and four rebounds. "We might mess around and win a couple games." The Warriors have fallen so fast theyre suddenly in a similar situation. David Lee had 28 points, seven rebounds and five assists and Klay Thompson scored 13 for the Warriors, who fell to 2-8 since trading leading scorer Monta Ellis to Milwaukee in a move that netted injured centre Andrew Bogut. While the trade was made for future success, it hasnt helped the present. "Theres no such thing as overlooking a team when were the third-worst team in the West," Lee said. "We dont have that luxury. We just didnt play well tonight." The plodding pace perhaps shouldve been predictable. Warriors point guard Stephen Curry (sprained right ankle) missed his 11th straight game -- and 21st overall -- and, along with new big man Andrew Bogut (fractured left ankle), is unlikely to play again this season. Andris Biedrins (strained right groin) also wasnt in uniform. Trevor Ariza (sore right ankle), Chris Kaman (illness), Emeka Okafor (sore left knee) and Eric Gordon (bruised right knee) all sat out for the Hornets. Gordon has played in only two games this season. The absence of soo many starters showed.dddddddddddd The flow of the game was mundane and the typically bouncing Bay Area crowd was subdued, even though an announced 18,771 fans still attended. Other than a few quick bursts, there wasnt much to cheer about. New Orleans scored 10 straight in the second quarter on a run capped by a pick-and-roll pass from Vasquez to Jason Smith for a layup that gave the Hornets a 39-26 lead. They went ahead by 17 at halftime, and boos rang out so loud from the home crowd that Warriors owner Joe Lacob -- jeered for several minutes last week during Hall of Famer Chris Mullins jersey retirement ceremony at the arena -- didnt even get out of his seat. The Hornets built a 69-49 lead halfway through the third quarter on a layup by Jack. Golden State made a brief run to close within a dozen before New Orleans regrouped and blew away the Warriors. "You still have a job to do," Jack said he tells his younger teammates at this point in the season. "Dont sell yourself short. Dont sell the team, the city or the fans short. They come out each and every game. Go out and play hard and dont do yourself a disservice." Pride is about all either team has left to play for. The Hornets are four games back of Sacramento, the next worst team in the Western Conference. Only Charlotte and Washington have fewer wins than New Orleans, which actually has more victories on the road (8) than at home (5). Golden State is a shell of the team it was a couple weeks ago. The Warriors still had dim playoff hopes when they traded Ellis -- a fan favourite and heart of the Warriors offence -- along with Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown to Milwaukee for Bogut. The Australian centre and 2005 No. 1 overall pick will not play this season but is expected to be Golden States franchise big man in the future. NOTES: Curry will officially be sidelined for another two weeks, the team announced Wednesday. He will be re-evaluated after that time and, though unlikely, hes still trying to play again this season. ... The Hornets play at Portland on Thursday night, while the Warriors dont play again until hosting New Jersey on Friday night. ' ' '
