MELBOURNE, Australia -- John Isner fired 23 aces in a match which had no service breaks to beat Lu Yen-hsun of Taiwan 7-6 (4), 7-6 (7) in the final of the ATPs Heineken Open in Auckland on Saturday. Glen Rice Jersey . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. Isner played six tiebreaks in 10 sets at the tournament and won five. The third-seeded Isner, playing with a right ankle injury he picked up at the Hopman Cup the previous week, took a crucial minibreak to open the first set tiebreaker. In the second tiebreaker, he rallied from 3-0 down and closed with an ace on his third championship point. "This match was very tight as every match Ive played this week was very tight," Isner said. "I needed every bit of it to come out on top. "Ive spent a lot of time on this court this week but as each match progressed I was getting more and more comfortable." Isner heads into the Australian Open with a question mark hanging over his fitness because of his injured ankle. He has drawn a qualifier in the first round. "Id like to thank my chiropractor because I had a bit of a banged-up ankle coming in here and he spent tireless hours working on me," he said. "Without him I wouldnt have been able to take this court." In the final of the Kooyong Classic exhibition event, Japans Kei Nishikori joined his coach Michael Chang as a tournament champion with a 6-4, 7-5 win over Tomas Berdych. Nishikori, seeded No. 16 at the Australian Open, was watched in the stands by former French Open champion Chang, a three-time winner at the Melbourne venue in 1995-97. Nishikori is drawn to face Australias Marinko Matosevic in the first round of the Australian Open. "It wont be an easy first match, and its not easy to play an Australian," Nishikori said. "But if I can play like I did today, I have a big chance to win." In the WTA event at Hobart, Spanish qualifier Garbine Muguruza defeated Klara Zakapalova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-0 to claim her first singles title. The 20-year-old Muguzura, who did not drop a set from the qualifiers to the final, joins 2012 champion Mona Barthel as the only qualifiers to win the Hobart event. Muguruza, ranked 58th, beat second-seeded and Wimbledon semifinalist Kirsten Flipkens in the quarterfinals, while Zakapalova defeated top-seeded and former U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur in the semis. Muguruza won the opening set when she broke Zakapalovas service in the 10th game. The 20-year-old Muguruza didnt play after Wimbledon last year after due to right ankle surgery, and the recovery took longer than expected. "I started to play on a chair, and then it was a little bit more until I was like normal," she said. "I didnt expect to win a lot of matches in the second tournament of the year but I just know that Id worked so hard before. I was like a big bull." The Venezuelan-born Muguruza has a first-round match against Kaia Kanepi of Estonia at the Australian Open.

Blackhawks RW Patrick Kane came up big when it counted, tallying two goals and an assist. He scored the game-winner with 4:45 remaining in the third period, stopping on the right hashmarks, carrying the puck up through the top of the Kings zone, then firing a wrist shot from the top of the circles past Jonathan Quick, who had his view obstructed by Andrew Shaw. http://www.authenticbasketballshopheat.com/hassan-whiteside-heat-jersey/ .5 million.

The Jets finally lived up to their name, roaring out of the gate at full speed Monday night and keeping the throttle full as they outskated and outshot the Detroit Red Wings 4-2. But for a few minutes in the second period, Noel admits he was worried. "Is this going to be one of these nights?" was the thought that crossed his mind. "I thought we had a good first period then OK, before you know it were down 2-1." Bryan Little had scored the only goal in the first period for the Jets (6-8-2), as they outshot Detroit 14-9. But then Henrik Zetterberg put Detroit (9-5-2) on the board at 7:09 of the second after his shot in front of the Winnipeg net glanced in off Jets defenceman Grant Clitsomes skate. Danny DeKeyser had the go-ahead goal, his NHL career first, with a slapshot from the blue-line that beat Jets goalie Al Montoyas glove when Detroit was shorthanded. Its not like it hasnt happened before to the Jets. A good game goes bad and stays that way. But not this time. "I think a big thing is we didnt get down on ourselves," said Mark Scheifele. "We knew we made some mistakes but I think on the bench we were saying, Guys, were still in this, weve still got lots of game. " In the end, Noel had little to complain about as the Jets continued to dominate, outshooting the Red Wings 47-27 and forcing turnover after turnover. "The way that we played, it would have been a really tough game to lose," he said. "We got some games from a lot of players." Matt Halishuck scored the winner and his first goal as a Jet. Michael Frolik and Andrew Ladd also scored for the Jets, who snapped a three-game losing streak The assists tell a fuller story. Devin Setoguchi had two, Scheifele had two and Little and Ladd both had assists in addition to their goals. "There was a lot of things to like in that game," said Noel. Wiith Evander Kane out of the lineup following their last game, the line of Frolik, Scheifele and Halischuk was a solid replacement. Chris Bosh Jersey. "They played better that we did," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "I think from start to finish they were the better team on the ice. We didnt look like we had much energy, didnt skate well, didnt execute well." He said four games in six days was no excuse. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak built in Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton. The Jets had as many shots in the first period as Edmonton managed in the entire game the Oilers lost 5-0 Saturday. One stat that wasnt so flattering for Winnipeg was 0-6 on the power play, plus one short-handed goal, but Noel said they will build on the positives. Little got the jump on defenceman Kyle Quincy, who fell and left Winnipegs leading scorer to go in alone against Jimmy Howard. It was Littles team-leading eighth goal of the season. Babcock said Howard did a good job and Detroits penalty killing was one of the few bright spots Monday night. A third Detroit goal in the second was cancelled by a net that came off its moorings. With just under three minutes to go, Scheifele slid the puck through Quinceys skates in front of the Detroit net to Frolik and he popped it in to make it 2-2. A perfectly positioned Halischuk put the Jets ahead at 4:26 of the third when he one-timed a pass from Frolik, who fed it from behind the Detroit net. Ladd backhanded a loose puck past Howard at 10:57 of the third to give the Jets some breathing room. Notes: Defenceman Mark Stuart joined the Jets injury list on the weekend and the Jets called up Zach Redmond from the IceCaps. They also claimed defenceman Keaton Ellerby off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings and Noel said he played well Monday. ... The team has been without defenceman Jacob Trouba and centre Jim Slater since Oct. 20. Paul Postma has been off since Oct. 27. It isnt known how long Kane might be out.
