PARIS -- Canadas Eugenie Bouchard has moved up four spots in the WTA tennis rankings following her semifinal appearance at the French Open. The player from Westmount, Que., is ranked a career-high 12th, up from No. 16. Russias Maria Sharapova moved up three spots to No. 5 after winning the womens title in Paris on the weekend. No. 1 Serena Williams and No. 2 Li Na didnt move despite early French Open losses, while runner-up Simona Halep rose one spot to No. 3. On the mens side, Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., who made the quarter-finals at Ronald Garros, remained in ninth spot. Spains Rafael Nadal held onto the No. 1 ranking thanks to his ninth French Open title. If Nadal had lost Sundays final to No. 2 Novak Djokovic, they would have swapped places in the ATP rankings. No. 3 Stan Wawrinka and No. 4 Roger Federer also stayed put, but Andy Murray climbed from No. 8 to No. 5 by reaching the French Open semifinals. First-time major semifinalist Ernests Gulbis jumped seven places to a career-best No. 10. Anthony Rizzo Jersey . -- Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera has a broken bone below his right eye after being struck by a bad-hop grounder, sidelining the star slugger for at least a week with opening day on deck. Albert Almora Jr Jersey . The Blue Jackets got goals from Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Boone Jenner and R.J. Umberger and Curtis McElhinney posted his first shutout since 2011 in a 4-0 victory on Friday night. http://www.cubsteamproshop.com/cubs-greg-maddux-jersey/. - Mike Zimmer has brought a demanding style to the Minnesota Vikings. Kosuke Fukudome Jersey .The team had a meeting prior to facing Russia at the world junior hockey championship and got the effort theyve been looking for by defeating the Russians 4-1 to advance to the quarter-finals. Jake Arrieta Jersey . The top-ranked Spaniard won his fourth Madrid Open on Sunday after Kei Nishikori was forced to withdraw with a hip injury when trailing 2-6, 6-4, 3-0 in the final. And Nadal, who is coming off to uncharacteristic quarterfinal losses on clay, said his mental strength is still lacking just two weeks ahead of the French Open.While rehabbing a broken jaw in Philadelphia recently, Samuel Morin wasnt allowed to eat solid foods for a month. The 19-year-old defenceman drank a lot of smoothies and some less appetizing meals.Steak in a blender, chicken in a blender, everything in a blender, Morin said. It was disgusting. Awful.Morins diet is solidified again and so is his life. Hes back playing hockey and at six foot seven brings an element of size and strength to Canadas world junior hockey team that no one else can provide.Hes not an easy player to play against in the corner, coach Benoit Groulx said at the teams pre-tournament camp in St. Catharines, Ont. We need that presence on the back end that can make a big difference in tight games because when you look at this tournament its all about winning battles in corners, winning battles in front of the net, and I think hes got the size and the stick and hes smart enough to get that done.Morin, a first-round pick of the Flyers in 2013, came closer than most thought to making the NHL club out of training camp. Sent back to Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Morin suffered a fractured jaw when he took a one-timer from the Remparts Kurt Etchegary to the right side of his face.That was Oct. 12 in his fifth game of the season. Morin remembers everything about the play.Oh my God, worst injury I ever had, Morin said. One-timer straight in the face, you dont see that a lot. Sometimes it deflects, but that was straight in the face. It just destroyed my jaw. I had no time (to react).After his steak-in-a-blender period, Morin returned five weeks later but with a full face shield. The St-Henri, Que., native had to think twice about what he did.My game changed in junior because when someone boarded me I cannot say, You want to fight? I cant do my tough guy (act) anymore, Morin said. For sure it changed a little bit of my game, but here (at the world juniors) I cannot fight so it changes nothing.Morin doesnt need to fight to be an imposing force for Canada. He wants opponentts to see his size on the roster and think twice when they go into the corners with him.ddddddddddddWhile the Flyers hope he can be the next Chris Pronger, Morin has two other players he feels like hes more like. One is Zdeno Chara, a similarly sized defenceman with a big shot who can play in all situations.The other is a defenceman who was part of Canadas 2005 world junior gold-medal team, Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf.Dion Phaneuf, when they won the gold here, proved it: You can be a physical player. Even though he was not fighting he was hitting everything, Morin said. I dont want to hit everything and get out of the play because I want to hit, but I think I can finish all my checks.Canada, which opens the tournament Friday against Slovakia, will count on Morin to do just that. The defence includes plenty of puck-movers and offensive prowess, but Morin is the muscle.In a tournament like that, you need size, you need strength, you need speed, Groulx said. We like the balance we have with our defencemen. I think theyre all big, they can skate well, theyre pretty strong. Sam brings that element.Except Morin doesnt see himself as a one-dimensional big guy. He understands and embraces a shutdown role but doesnt underestimate his own skills.I think Im a big guy, I got some skills. Im a good skater, Ive got a good shot, Morin said. I got a long reach, I can play with the puck. I want to play like a little guy more. But I have to realize Im a big guy and I need to make some simple plays.Groulx scouted Morin as far back as midget hockey and coached against him in the QMJHL. He said Morin has decent skill and can skate well for a big man.Teammates see that, too.Hes definitely a great skater for how big he is and hes got a great shot and he can use his skills to manage (the puck), defenceman Madison Bowey said. Hes not just one of those stay-at-home defencemen. Hes pretty dynamic with that size.The world junior championship opens Friday in Montreal and Toronto.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
