STUTTGART, Germany -- Alisa Kleybanova defeated third-seeded Petra Kvitova 6-2, 7-6 (3) to provide the first major upset at the Porsche Grand Prix on Wednesday. Randall Cobb Jersey . The 102nd-ranked Kleybanova rallied from 5-3 down in the second set to beat her Czech opponent. It was the Russians first victory against a top-10 player since winning her battle against Hodgkins lymphoma, which kept her out between May 2011 and March 2012. The sixth-ranked Kvitova had been given a bye to the second round and was playing her first match since inspiring the Czech Republic to the Fed Cup final last weekend. Earlier, Ana Ivanovic defeated Sabine Lisicki 6-1, 6-3 to send the Wimbledon finalist out in the first round. Ivanovic, the world No. 12 and former French Open winner, needed just one hour to beat the 24-year-old Berliner. Italys Flavia Pennetta fired 10 aces to none in her 7-5, 3-6, 6-1 win over wild card Andrea Petkovic. It left four of the six home players out of the most important German womens competition at the first hurdle. Pennetta will face the fifth-seeded Jelena Jankovic in the second round, with the winner then playing Kleybanova in the quarterfinals. Wild card Julia Goerges gave the supporters reason for cheer with a surprise 6-1, 7-5 win over Romanias Sorana Cirstea. The 94th-ranked German will next face Ivanovic on Thursday. Italys Sara Errani booked her quarterfinal place by defeating Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-3, 6-3. Josh Jones Jersey .Y. - Brooklyn Nets centre Brook Lopez has a strained lower back and will miss at least a week. Kentrell Brice Jersey . Alen, 28, hit .315 with five home runs, 59 RBI and a career-high nine stolen bases for the Goldeyes last season. He is the longest serving catcher in Goldeyes history, having already spent five seasons with the organization.EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Adrian Peterson has been away from the Minnesota Vikings for almost two months.If hes allowed back this season, teammates would welcome him without hesitation.That was the consensus from players as they left the practice field Tuesday, shortly before Peterson avoided jail time and a trial on the child abuse charge against him with a plea agreement in Texas. No special address or apology would be necessary, they said.Guys have chatted amongst each other, and I dont think theres anyone in that locker room that would need to hear from him, tight end Kyle Rudolph said. We all know the kind of person Adrian is, and I feel like hes proven that over his time here.So now the question is whether he will return to the Vikings this season. He has been on paid leave, making more than $690,000 each week, via a special roster exemption issued by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.That hiatus was the result of an intense deliberation by the team, the league, the union and Peterson, after the Vikings initially announced Sept. 15 he would be back in the lineup as usual after sitting out the teams Sept. 14 home opener against New England on the heels of the indictment. The public backlash to that decision was swift and strong, prompting the NFL and the Vikings to reconsider and shelve him while his case played out.Now after his plea agreement, the focus of Petersons unprecedented story has shifted from the courtroom back to the league.We will review the matter, including the court record, and then make a determination on his status. We cannot provide a timetable, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.Earlier in the day, prior to the plea agreement, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the organization would withhold comment on Petersons situation until its appropriate to speak. About five hours after Petersons court appearance, the Vikings issued a 20-word statement acknowledging the plea agreement and delaying comment until the appropriate time.NFLPA spokesman George Atallah declined to comment. Petersons agent, Ben Dogra, said he wasnt prepared to discuss anything at this time but would gladly do so aat the appropriate time. Jordy Nelson Jersey. The nameplate is still on Petersons cubicle in the locker room, filled with equipment just the way he left it. The offence has been different, of course, but with elusive rookie Jerick McKinnon and powerful overachiever Matt Asiata the backfield has been the least of the teams concerns since Peterson was placed on leave.McKinnon has two 100-yard performances and a total of 446 yards rushing, plus 106 yards receiving.I think we have a nice combination going with him and Matt, two different styles, Spielman said. Everybodys seen what Matt can do last year when he got the opportunity and some of the things hes doing this year.Asiata has a pair of three-touchdown games, with 277 yards rushing and 199 yards receiving.Though Peterson would first have to prove he stayed in playing shape, his return would certainly reduce the workload for both Asiata and McKinnon. But despite the hit his image has taken in public, Peterson has long been a revered presence on the team, not to mention an elite talent.Wed be happy to have him back. Hes a leader on this team, McKinnon said, adding: Obviously if Adrian comes back hes going to be the starting running back. Its just one of those things where everybody has a role. Got to accept it.Peterson sent coach Mike Zimmer a message before the Sept. 28 game against Atlanta that was shared with the team. Many players have kept in touch with him since he was put on leave.Hes one of the best players in the world, and hes obviously somebody whos meant a lot to this community, meant a lot for the team, fullback Jerome Felton said. Hes one of our leaders. He was up here in the off-season. People follow his lead because of how hard he works. So itd be pretty nice to add that back into the team.Said quarterback Teddy Bridgewater: If he does come back, Im pretty sure everyone would still take him in and welcome him with open arms.___AP Pro Football Writer Howard Fendrich in Washington and Associated Press Writer Juan Lozano in Houston contributed to this report.___AP NFL websites: and ;Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys WholesaleCheap Jerseys ' ' '
