LONDON -- For 2 1/2 hours, Venus Williams traded big serves and hard groundstrokes with Petra Kvitova on Centre Court. Marcus Stroman Jersey . Williams was playing with some of the power and pace that had brought her five Wimbledon titles. But when it was over, she was left with a sense of disappointment. "The battle is always a little more enjoyable when you win," Williams said Friday after coming within two points of victory but losing 5-7, 7-6 (2), 7-5 to Kvitova, the 2011 champion. All four of their previous meetings went to three sets and this one was no different, with plenty of suspense, intensity, and only a few break points. Williams looked stronger early in the match and was up 5-4, 15-30 on Kvitovas serve, in the second set. But the Czech came up with some big serves, held and won the second set tiebreaker. The players then held serve for the first 11 games of the third set before Kvitova broke No. 30 Williams for the first time in the last game. "Its a shame there had to be a loser in this match and more of a shame that it had to be me," Williams said. Despite the loss, Williams had reasons to feel positive about her week in London. At the age of 34, she has been playing well this season, winning a title in Dubai and reaching the final in Auckland and Miami. This week, she got to the third round at a Grand Slam tournament for only the second time in her past 10 appearances. After her battle with Kvitova, she reiterated that retirement is not in her plans. More than that, Williams still believes in her ability to add to her total of seven Grand Slams. "People have been trying to retire me since I was like 25. For some reason in tennis we always do that to our players. Its weird," said Williams, who disclosed three years ago that she was diagnosed with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease. "We dont encourage them to stick around," she added. "Its like, Get out of here. So Im not getting out of here. I think this year has been a great year for me. Ive had some tough losses, but Ive learned a lot from them. Im finding my way back on my feet. Im proud of myself for what Im achieving on the court." The former No. 1 is next scheduled to play in Cincinnati and Montreal. She said she might add more tournaments to her summer schedule to keep improving her game. "So that way Ill just have a chance, when its really time to play good tennis, I would have had those matches under my belt," she said. Kendrys Morales Jersey . It was the most lopsided loss in Lakers history. Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; theyve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points. Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys . Kadri was dressed in a green jersey at Thursdays practice and skated as an extra forward on the teams fourth line as the Leafs. . His head snapped back from the impact and hit the floor. The All-Star power forward was all right afterward, a relief for the Minnesota Timberwolves.WINNIPEG -- Another day, another new player for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as they prepare to face the Saskatchewan Roughriders Sunday in Regina. The Bombers (1-7) announced they had signed import defensive end Greg Peach Thursday and then confirmed he will play in Sundays game against Saskatchewan (7-1). Defensive co-ordinator Casey Creehan says he likes the way Peach goes all out in a game. "After the performance we put out there in the first quarter of last week -- we had guys turning down hits we had guys not running to the ball -- we played uninspired football and we arent going to tolerate it," he said. "Bringing a guy like Greg Peach in, I know that he will play balls to the wall, 100 miles an hour every snap." Peach agrees with Creehans assessment that the effort he puts in is one of biggest strengths. "I might not be the most freakish athlete, I just give everything Ive got, every play and I work my pass rush," he said. "Its worked for me and here I am, five years later, and I hope to play another five at least." He was released by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats where he appeared in 15 games last season, registering 36 tackles and six sacks. Hes worked with Creehan before and feels comfortable with his style of defence. Peach came into the CFL with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2009 and said Thursday he was happy to get plucked out of free agency quickly. Meanwhile, head coach Tim Burke says the Bombers wont announce who their starting quarterback will be until Friday morning. Max Hall has been nursing an injured hand but it didnt seem to hamper his throwing much in practice Thursday. Buck Pierce is also out with an unspecified injury. Justin Goltz is healthy and was also taking lots of snaps Thursday. He says he feels comfortable with the new offence Marcel Bellefeuille has brought to thee team since replacing Gary Crowton this month at offensive co-ordinator. Justin Smoak Jersey. Its just one of the many changes the Bombers have implemented to turn around a dismal season that has already led to the firing of general manager Joe Mack and team president Garth Buchko. This week alone the Bombers cut place-kicker Justin Palardy and receiver Isaac Anderson. They also signed new receivers Mike Sims-Walker, a five-season NFL veteran, and Aaron Kelly, who spent two years with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats before being released this spring. Also new in town is quarterback Jason Boltus. Like Peach has with Creehan, Boltus has connections to Bellefeuille. He spent three seasons as a backup in Hamilton when Bellefeuille was head coach. Burke has told his current starters that their jobs are on the line and veteran receiver Terrence Edwards says players have to show their maturity. "Weve just to keep fighting and keep pushing and try to get this thing turned around one game at a time, starting with this game," he said. cOn paper it doesnt look like the Bombers have much of a chance against the Roughriders. Saskatchewan has scored a league high 264 points so far this season and allowed just 177, while Winnipeg has allowed a league high 247 and scored just 167. The Bombers havent managed to beat Saskatchewan in their annual Labour Day weekend game since 2004 and last year were humiliated 52-0. Their one and only win this season was July 4 in Montreal but Burke says he expects his team to go out and do their best Sunday. "My expectations are that we play hard and we are competitive," he said. "If you play hard and are competitive then you have a chance to win. Thats my main focus, to make sure we are the best we can be going into that game."
