Flushing Meadows, NY (Sports Network) - American 17-year-old qualifier Victoria Duval scored a monumental upset on Tuesday by beating 2011 champion and No. 11 seed Samantha Stosur in the first round of the U.S. Open Tuesday. Duval, who was playing in only her second grand slam match, posted a 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 win, which was only completed on her fourth match point. Stosur committed 56 unforced errors and had 10 double faults. A forehand winner sent Duval into the air in jubilation before the celebratory crowd at Louis Armstrong Stadium. "The crowd helped me a lot today. I know Sam is a great champion and I watched her when she won the U.S.Open," said Duval, who won her first match against a top-20 opponent. "I know she didnt play her best today." The story of Duvals rise to professional tennis is an eye-opening one. Although she was born in Miami, Duval spent her childhood in Haiti until the age of eight before moving back to the U.S. She started playing tennis a year before her move. Duvals parents are Haitian. Her father, who is a doctor in Port-au-Prince; was hurt in the devastating earthquake of 2010. Her mother was a professional ballet, jazz and tap dancer. Last year at this time, Duval was the recipient of the Maureen Connolly "Outstanding Player" award at the USTA Girls 18s National Championships. She will take on Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova in the second round. Hantuchova beat American wild card Maria Sanchez, 7-5, 6-2. "Theres a lot to be thankful for. You never know what could happen any day," Duval said. "Take everything I learned today and hopefully I can play like this again." Fourth seed Sara Errani, former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova were among the opening-round winners Tuesday. Second seed Victoria Azarenka was set to play Germanys Dinah Pfizenmaier in the final night match at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The former world No. 1 Azarenka is the reigning Australian Open champ and was last years U.S. Open runner-up to the great Serena Williams. The former French Open runner-up Errani, of Italy, double-bageled helpless Aussie Olivia Rogowska, 6-0, 6-0, while the sixth-seeded Dane and 2009 U.S. Open runner-up Wozniacki topped Chinese Duan Ying-Ying, 6-2, 7-5, and the seventh-seeded Czech slugger Kvitova got past Japanese fellow left-hander Misaki Doi in three sets, 6-2, 3-6, 6-1, in 1 hour, 55 minutes on a warm, breezy Day 2 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. "In the first round of Grand Slams its difficult all the time so you have to be focused," said Kvitova, who was a runner-up in New Haven, Conn., last week. "I didnt play my game all the match. I didnt have focus. I have to have more confidence." Kvitova, who captured Wimbledon in 2011, has never made it past the fourth round in New York. Her second-round opponent on Thursday will be capable Serb Bojana Jovanovski. Meanwhile, 10th-seeded Italian Roberta Vinci, a U.S. Open quarterfinalist a year ago, handled Hungarian Timea Babos, 6-4, 6-2, 13th-seeded former world No. 1 and former French Open champ Ana Ivanovic, also a 2012 quarterfinalist in Flushing, pasted Georgian Anna Tatishvili, 6-2, 6-0, and 14th-seeded Russian Maria Kirilenko mauled Belgian Yanina Wickmayer, 6-1, 6-1. In other action involving seeds, Ukrainian Elina Svitolina drove out No. 17 Slovak Dominika Cibulkova, 6-4, 6-3; Israeli Julia Glushko doused No. 20 Russian Nadia Petrova 6-3, 6-4; and No. 21 seed Simona Halep of Romania upended Great Britains Heather Watson, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2. Halep is fresh off her title in New Haven and has won four events over the past two months. No. 22 Russian Elena Vesnina drilled German Annika Beck 6-1, 6-1; No. 26 Alize Cornet, of France, downed Portuguese Maria Joao Koehler 6-3, 6-2; No. 27 Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia beat American Mallory Burdette, 6-3, 7-5; 28th seed Mona Barthel of Germany topped Swede Johanna Larsson, 6-1, 6-4; and Taipeis Su-Wei Hsieh knocked out No. 31 Czech Klara Zakopalova 6-3, 6-3. The one-time world No. 3 Petrova has dropped her last six matches on tour. Kuznetsova was the 2004 U.S. Open champion and 2007 runner-up. In other matches involving Americans, Christina McHale defeated German Julia Goerges, 6-4, 6-3; 18-year-old Sachia Vickery made her WTA debut by topping Croat Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, 6-4, 6-4; Italian Karin Knapp drilled Grace Min, 6-3, 6-1; Romanian Alexandra Dulgheru took out Varvara Lepchenko, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 7-6 (7-5); Alison Riske ousted Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova, 6-3, 6-3; and Flavia Pennetta crushed Nicole Gibbs, 6-0, 6-2. Pennetta will tangle with her fellow Italian Errani on Thursday. Kendall Fuller Jersey . They started shooting the puck.

Samaje Perine Jersey .J. - The New Jersey Devils know the odds are against them as they chase a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Cornerback Leon Hall jogged toward the right side of the defence and took his customary place, matched against receiver Mohamed Sanu. The play was a handoff, so Hall didnt have to do much. Thats not what mattered. Hall lined up for the first 11-on-11 play in the Bengals first practice of training camp on Thursday, an encouraging sign for one of the NFLs top defences. "It means a lot," Hall said. The 29-year-old cornerback tore his right Achilles tendon midway through last season, the second time hes sustained such an injury. He tore his left Achilles in 2011, but was back as the starter the following year and played very well. Hes made another quick and full recovery. "There was never really a doubt in my mind," Hall said. "It was just trying to be patient enough to go through that long process again." Even though hes fine physically, Hall hasnt been able to be on the field during off-season workouts, so hes still got a lot of work to do on his form. At one point during the afternoon practice, he went to the sideline and worked on his side-to-side movement. "I felt good," he said after practice. "No pain. I felt strong. My footwork wasnt very good, but thats going to come in a few days." Defensive tackle Geno Atkins is coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and wanted to participate in the first practice, but was held out on Thursday as a precaution. Coach Marvin Lewis wants to give him a few days to ease in before hes cleared to fully practice. Hall is a mainstay on a defence that has ranked among the leagues top 10 for each of the past three years, finishing third overall in yards allowed last season. The Bengals never doubted that hed be ready despite his second significant injury in three seasons. "Leon, he works hard at everything he does," defensive co-ordinator Paul Guenther said. "Iff you can have a poster child for a coachs guy, thats him.dddddddddddd Hell do whatever he has to do. He spent the whole off-season getting that thing back to go. Im excited to see him back on the field." After Halls Achilles surgery in 2011, there were doubts about whether he would still be quick enough to cover the other teams top receiver. When he got back on the field, he was just as good, if not better. "His speed became better last time, which is really something," Lewis said. "I thought he played faster in 2012 than he did before. I think thats what excites him about this: Maybe anatomically Ive got something that made me better." Hall doesnt know if he was that much faster after the first Achilles surgery, but all of the rehabilitation work has him in good shape for the start of camp. "I feel like I felt years ago, before I did the first one," Hall said. "Ive heard numerous times that your Achilles is technically stronger after you have the surgery. I wouldnt suggest going and tearing your Achilles, but thats just what I heard from the doctors and people in general. Thats good news. "I feel better. Lets just hope it translates to the field." Notes: The Bengals claimed first-year WR Conner Vernon off waivers from Cleveland and signed free agent WR Jeremy Johnson, a rookie from Southern Methodist. They waived punter T.J. Conley. ... OL Andrew Whitworth was held out of practice with a sore calf. ... At the start of practice, a couple of fans hung two banners from a public bridge that overlooks the practice fields. The first banner urged the Bengals not to sign quarterback Andy Dalton to a contract extension. The other said: "AJ to AJ, the future is now." The Bengals signed quarterback AJ McCarron in the fifth round. McCarron didnt throw to A.J. Green on Thursday -- hes resting a sore passing shoulder.
