five. "Jason did his job," Antworten

NEW YORK -- The U.S. Open closed its new, $150 million retractable roof atop Arthur Ashe Stadium during a match for the first time Wednesday night.The shutting of the cover resulted in a suspension of play of less than 7 1/2 minutes at 3-all in the second set of Rafael Nadals 6-0, 7-5, 6-1 victory against Andreas Seppi in the second round.I feel that the conditions are pretty similar when the roof is closed or open, Nadal said afterward.The most noticeable difference was the amount of ambient noise -- chatter from spectators, mainly -- that could be heard during points.U.S. Tennis Association Executive Director Gordon Smith said tournament organizers will look into that.This is New York. And yes, theres crowd noise. And yes, we want the crowds to come, we want them to be excited. We want them to cheer. And we think that over time the fans will adjust and the players will adjust, he said. Its obvious theres going to be more noise in a trapped environment than in an open environment.Even before the roof was closed, chair umpire Cedric Mourier repeatedly implored spectators to keep quiet during points. Both Nadal and Seppi were surprised by just how many interruptions there were from fans, either moving around in the stands or simply being loud.The people, I think, are used to going to baseball (games) and keep talking, Seppi said. There really was a lot of noise.After dealing with rain delays and postponed finals for years, the USTA finally built a sliding roof over its main stadium. It was available for this years tournament, which started Monday, but the first two days were dry.It took well over 10 years to come up with a solution to do this that was affordable, was architecturally imaginative, that was cost-effective, that was efficient. But we did it, Smith said. To see it work flawlessly was really incredible.A light rain began to fall while Nadal and Seppi were playing. Tournament referee Brian Earley was monitoring the weather from off to the side of the playing surface and eventually walked over to Mourier and the two players to let them know he wanted to shut the roof.This might take very few minutes, Mourier announced to the spectators. Thank you very much for your patience.Some fans applauded or cheered. Others pulled out their cellphones to shoot photos of the structure as it moved. Even Nadal took a glance overhead to sneak a peek.The USTA has said that, based on pre-tournament testing, the expectation is there will be little difference in playing conditions whether the roof is open or closed.The only use of the roof until Nadals match came when it was shut at the start of the tournaments opening ceremony Monday night, then opened while Phil Collins sang In the Air Tonight.The U.S. Open mens final was postponed in five consecutive years because of wet weather from 2008-12.For a good show, for the comfort of the fans and for the fans in general (watching on) television, Nadal said about the new roof, its just an unbelievable improvement.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at Cheap NCAA Football Jerseys .

NCAA Jerseys Wholesale .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. Wholesale College Jerseys . PAUL, Minn.SAN DIEGO - The new Jack Daniels Old No. 7 deck atop the reconfigured right field wall at Petco Park provides an inviting target. "Its nice," said Alonso, who hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Wade Miley in the fifth inning to help the Padres to a 7-6 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night, San Diegos seventh win in nine games. It was Arizonas fourth straight loss. Alsonos homer was one of 14 hits for the Padres, the second time theyve had that many in three home games. Rookie Jedd Gyorko had his first three-hit game, including two doubles. "Ive sensed us starting to swing the bats better the last couple weeks," manager Bud Black said. "Weve broken out a couple different times on a couple different games and it showed tonight again with double-digit hits, some good at-bats, some good walks, some hard contact along the way, a big home run, a couple big swings. Ive sensed that." With the Padres trailing 3-2, Alonso drove a 2-2 pitch from Miley (2-1) into the Jack Daniels deck in right-centre, his fourth. It probably would have been a home run even in Petco Parks old configuration. The fences were moved in 11 feet from the home run porch in the right-field corner to the gap in an attempt to make the downtown ballpark play fairer. Jesus Guzman was aboard on a grounder. Miley was "locating pretty well early in the game," Alonso said. "I got a good fastball elevated middle in. He got me to foul some pitches inside. I wasnt catching up to it, but then I made a little adjustment." Miley said he left a pitch up. "I was trying to get it away and I overthrew it and it stayed middle and he did a good job of hitting it," Miley said. "I was battling a bit. You dont always feel your best every time. But I had some opportunities to get out of it." The homer made a winner of Jason Marquis (3-2). Marquis allowed three runs and four hits in six innings, struck out five and walked five. "Jason did his job," Black said.dddddddddddd "He hung in there, battled and made some pitches. Actually, his last inning was his best. Hes a veteran pitcher with moxie who knows how to work his way through a game." Huston Street came on with runners on first and second and no outs in the ninth and retired two batters before allowing Gerardo Parras three-run homer to straightaway centre, his second. Street then got Martin Prado to fly out to centre for his seventh save in as many chances. Miguel Montero homered to straightaway centre field off Marquis leading off the second, his second. San Diego took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the inning on Gyorkos leadoff double and, with two outs, a single by Chris Denorfia and a triple by Everth Cabrera. The Diamondbacks regained the lead in the fourth on an RBI double by Eric Chavez and a run-scoring groundout by Cliff Pennington. The Padres added on in the seventh and eighth. Guzman doubled to right-centre and scored on Kyle Blanks single in the seventh. In the eighth, Cabreras sacrifice bunt brought in a run and Chase Headley hit an RBI double. Miley, who finished second to Bryce Harper in NL Rookie of the Year balloting last year, allowed four runs and nine hits in five innings, struck out four and walked three. NOTES: Padres LF Carlos Quentin was in the original lineup but was scratched with a balky right knee. He was replaced by Jesus Guzman. ...

Richard is 6-0 in eight career starts against Arizona, including three wins in four starts last year. ... Before the game, Headley ran into club executive chairman Ron Fowler and explained why he doesnt want to negotiate a contract extension during the season. Headley said its been a distraction since Fowler said on Wednesday that the club was prepared to make an offer that would make Headley the highest-paid player in club history. ' ' '
