Paris, France (Sports Network) - World No. Brian Cushing C Patch Jersey . 1 Victoria Azarenka, third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska and former runner-up Samantha Stosur landed in the win column, while former runner-up Venus Williams was sent packing in the second round at the French Open. The top-seeded Azarenka cruised past Germanys Dinah Pfizenmaier 6-1, 6-1, while the sixth-seeded Stosur dismissed American Irina Falconi 6-1, 6-4. Azarenka, a quarterfinalist on the famed red clay at Roland Garros last year, is trying for her second straight Grand Slam title. She won the Australian Open in January for her first career major championship. "Being No. 1 is a difficult job, because everybody want to catch you, everybody want to move you from the spot," Azarenka said. "Nothing is going to come easy just because youre No. 1. You actually have more people... motivated trying to beat you." The native of Belarus needed just 55 minutes and broke serve five times on Wednesday to advance to the third round. She will next face Canadas Aleksandra Wozniak, who knocked off 31st-seeded Chinese Zheng Jie 6-2, 6-4 on Wednesday. The consistent Radwanska dispatched the unseeded Williams 6-2, 6-3 one day after Williams younger sister and fellow former No. 1 Serena was a shocking first-round loser at the hands of Frances Virginie Razzano. Venus lost to Serena in an all-Williams French Open title bout 10 years ago and hasnt reached the final four here since. Radwanska will face former top-five Russian star Svetlana Kuznetsova in the round of 32. Stosur, the 2010 French runner-up and reigning U.S. Open champ, also had little trouble on Wednesday and moved on in just 63 minutes. She saved each of four break-point opportunities against her serve and converted 3-of-4 break chances. Next up for the Aussie will be Russias Nadia Petrova, who posted a 6-3, 6-3 win Wednesday against South Africas Chanelle Scheepers. The 27th-seeded Petrova has had her best Grand Slam results in Paris, reaching the semifinals in 2003 and 2005. Up-and-coming Croat Petra Martic disappointed the French faithful by taking out the ladies eighth seed, Marion Bartoli, in 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 fashion. The 2007 Wimbledon runner-up Bartoli was a French Open semifinalist last year. Thirteenth-seeded former world No. 1 and former French Open champ Ana Ivanovic of Serbia cruised past Israeli Peer 6-2, 6-2, while 15th-seeded Slovak Dominika Cibulkova swatted American Vania King 6-0, 6-2 and 18th-seeded Italian Flavia Pennetta pasted American Alexa Glatch 6-3, 6-1. Ivanovic captured her French title in 2008 and was the 2007 runner-up here to former great Justine Henin. Another former French Open champ advanced, as a 26th-seeded Kuznetsova got past Taiwans Yung-Jan Chan 6-4, 7-6 (7-4). Kuznetsova titled here in 2009 and was the 2006 French runner-up to Henin. In other action involving seeds, Spaniard Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez upended No. 20 Czech Lucie Safarova 6-4, 7-5; No. 21 Italian Sara Errani leveled American in Melanie Oudin 6-2, 6-3; Frances Mathilde Johansson knocked out No. 24 Czech Petra Cetkovska 7-6 (7-1), 6-2; and No. 29 Spaniard Anabel Medina Garrigues drubbed Frances Irena Pavlovic 6-3, 6-2. In an all-American affair on Day 4, promising Florida native Sloane Stephens dismantled Minnesotas Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-1, 6-1. The 19-year-old Stephens, the daughter of former NFL player John Stephens, will face Johansson on Friday. Belarus Olga Govortsova was leading world No. 10 Angelique Kerber of Germany 2-1 in the first set when play was suspended because of rain on Wednesday. The second round is scheduled to conclude on Thursday, including matches for second-seeded former world No. 1 Maria Sharapova, fourth-seeded Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova and seventh-seeded reigning French Open champ Li Na. The tall Russian and three-time major champion Sharapova will face Japans Ayumi Morita, while the Czech lefthander Kvitova will tangle with Pole Urszula Radwanska, and Chinas Li will lock horns with Frances Stephanie Foretz Gacon. Also on the Day-5 schedule will be ninth-seeded Dane and former top-ranked star Caroline Wozniacki and 14th-seeded Italian Francesca Schiavone, who titled here in 2010 and was last years French Open runner-up to Li. And an all-American affair will pit 20-year-old Christina McHale of New Jersey against 18-year-old Lauren Davis of Ohio.

Though financial details were not released, French media reported the transfer fee could cost PSG up to C45 million ($55 million). MIAMI -- LeBron James and Ray Allen were at midcourt Monday afternoon, arguing in half-serious tones. After a shooting contest that lasted for about an hour after the regular Miami Heat practice concluded, there was a disagreement on who was actually winning. Both claimed victory. Both walked away grinning. Yes, everybody seems pleased so far at Heat camp. The reigning NBA champions have gotten new workout gear and new luggage in the past few days, and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra has handed out a couple of other gifts as well -- afternoons off. The dreaded two-a-day practice schedule has been nonexistent in Miami so far, with Spoelstra believing that enough work is getting done in one workout a day and therefore not seeing a need to further tax players bodies so early in camp. "It makes us want to work hard just with one practice," James said. "Knowing that hes given us that luxury, we come in and get our work done. You guys know us, guys are staying after shooting, guys are going down to the weight room and making sure we take care of our bodies and all of that. Thats the good thing about our veteran ballclub, guys are still getting their work in to get better." James, Allen, Dwyane Wade, Mario Chalmers and James Jones were all in group down at one basket long after practice ended, getting up jumper after jumper, free throw after free throw. Other players were scattered around the gym as well, and even more were downstairs in the weight room and training room until mid-afternoon or so. The Heat have nine players in camp entering at least their 10th NBA season. So Spoelstras thinking is clear: The fresher Miamis legs stay now, the better it might be for the Heat in the long run. "From his first year to now, hes done a 360-plus-times-two with the way hes approached things," Wade said. "I think its good for this team." There will be at least one double-session coming up for Miami: The team plans to practice Wednesday morning, followed by an open scrimmage for fans that night. Miamis first preseason game is at Atlanta on Sunday, and the Heat depart after that game for China and two exhibition games there next week against the Los Angeles Clippers. Spoelstra said the looming China trip isnt affecting his practice planning. A desire to keep the bigger picture in mind, that is at the forefront of his thinking. Glover Quin Jersey. . "We are being smart with it," Spoelstra said. "We havent done a second practice yet, but in terms of when we step out here in between the four lines, theres no holding back. Its full-contact, fully padded, physical and guys arent trying to ease into it." The Heat practice court is where the team held the first of many celebrations after last seasons NBA Finals win over Oklahoma City. For hours of the night after winning Game 5 over the Thunder and clinching the title, Heat players, employees, family members and guests dined, danced and drank as the gym was transformed into a reception hall of sorts. Its been back to normal for months, and Spoelstra didnt have to issue any reminders why. "When Spo says 5-on-5, pads up, mouthguards in, we kind of already know," James said. "We just have competitive guys that do not like to lose drills or do not like to lose no matter whats going on." The Heat have 12 players back from that championship team, and even the new additions -- Allen and Rashard Lewis, most notably -- pretty much already know whats going on in camp. Miami installed some of its half-court offences on Monday, ones that Allen said he already knew from his years of scouting and playing against the Heat. Count Allen among those who think a couple hours of brisk work is enough to get the daily grind of camp done. "Those juices are flowing," Allen said. "I love the rhythm of how practice is going because everybodys on the same page and a lot of us are learning on the fly but theres not a lot of standing around. Thats what I love. Ive been used to throughout my career being able to play up-tempo and getting up and down the floor and thats how we practice." Heat centre Chris Bosh couldnt hold back a smile when asked about how the first pair of two-a-days were cancelled, saying the Heat arent "going to fight that." But to him, James, Wade, Shane Battier and other returnees, theres also a sense that the Heat are picking up where they left off in their title season. "I think thats the best part about it," Bosh said. "This feels like practice. Now, weve got the camp legs. Thats going to be a part of it. But it just feels like were practicing like last year." ------ ' ' '
