WIMBLEDON, London -- John Millman defeated seeded player Benoit Paire to set up a third round clash with former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. Nike Tanjun Cheap.Australian Millman, who walked on court boosted by news that he would be going to the Rio Olympics later this year, saw off No.26 seed Paire 7-6(5), 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 in just over two-and-a-half hours. It is the furthest Millman has ever advanced at SW19.He will now face world No.2 Murray -- likely on Centre Court -- on Saturday for a place in round four, having lost their only previous encounter in Brisbane in 2013.Its going to be great, Millman told a press conference. Its a bit of the reversal of roles [from Brisbane]. Obviously its a little bit different now at Wimbledon, but its what you dream of. You dream of playing on the biggest courts against the biggest players.I feel as if I deserve to be there. We start off at 0-all. I respect Andy a lot. I think hes such a great player. Especially over five sets, its a whole different ball game against him.I have never been one to go out with an intimidated mindset before I play. I think thats kind of being disrespectful to the game. So Im going to give it everything.Earlier, Matt Bartons fairytale Wimbledon debut continued after he came through an extraordinary maiden Grand Slam victory in a marathon, rain-affected first-round clash.A surprise entrant into the tournament, Barton finally earned a second round place after defeating Frances Albano Olivetti in a match spanning three days and taking four hours and three minutes to complete.Qualifier Barton finally prevailed Thursday, winning 6-7(7), 7-6(5), 6-3, 6-7 (5), 14-12 to set up a second-round clash with American 18th seed John Isner.His victory comes as one of great perseverance for the world No.246, having previously retired from the professional circuit to take up a personal coaching role after being worn down by persistent knee injuries.That was ridiculous. I cant believe it. Im still shocked by the win, Barton said. I didnt know what to do. Ive never been in a situation like that. I was just relieved and couldnt believe it, he said of the emotional reaction. It was a great feeling for me. Im stoked. Cant believe it.?Bernard Tomic came through in four sets as he beat Radu Albot 7-6(3), 6-3, 6-7(6), 6-3 to reach the third round. Tomic, the No.19 seed, will face Roberto Bautista Agut in the next round.However, there was disappointment for?Samantha Stosur as she fell victim to 2013 runner-up Sabine Lisicki. Stosur?crashed out with a 6-4, 6-2 second-round defeat. Australias former US Open champion has now only managed to venture beyond round two three times in 14 visits to the All England Club.Undermined by eight double-faults, Stosur departed after just 70 and minutes. Having lost to Lisicki during the Germans charge to the final three years ago, Stosur was prepared for what was coming -- but proved powerless to stop her once again.When shes hitting the line on those serves, even if I went the right way, I wasnt going to reach them very good, Stosur said. When youre serving out a match like she was and you can serve like that, its fantastic, seems very easy.She played very well. You kind of know that Sabine is capable of playing like that. Youve got to really take any opportunities you get. Unfortunately going down that break early kind of maybe let her loosen the shoulders a little bit, really relax into that. If you can keep it on serve, maybe then you do see some cracks form.It kind of makes things really simple to know what happened. When you are playing a player whos playing very well, you have to find a way to do anything you can. I felt like I did that. I tried my hardest.Daria Gavrilova was also a second-round casualty as she lost out 6-3, 6-2 to Slovakias Dominika Cibulkova in 77 minutes. Nike Tanjun Shoes On Sale . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. Nike Tanjun Sale . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. http://www.cheapniketanjun.us/ . Once again, DeLaet finished tied for second at a PGA Tour stop on the weekend, this time at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The pride of Weyburn, Sask. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Looking around the New York Giants tight ends room, Kevin Gilbride Jr. knows this is the best group of players he has been given to coach.Larry Donnell has looked good after overcoming a neck injury that sidelined him the second half of last season. Will Tye appears ready to take the next step after being the biggest surprise of the offense in 2014.Matt LaCosse and Ryan Malleck have shown flashes, and sixth-round draft pick Jerrell Adams has shown he can block but he is still learning.Add in H-back Will Johnson, and Gilbride is a busy guy.His group doesnt include a Gronk, but he has guys who can make plays, which should help Eli Manning and the offense this season.What we like to do, what we try to do is, and Im talking about when were in season, is we like to get the guys who are the best at that particular job, Gilbride said Friday after practice. Whether that be an in-line blocker, a lead blocker from the backfield, split out as the No.1 receiver, whatever the case may be. What we try to do is put that person in the position that we like them in.Donnell probably is the best and most well known in the group, having caught three touchdown passes against Washington in a 2014 night game.However, his status coming into the season was uncertain because of the neck injury that limited him to eight games last season.A week into training camp, Donnell has looked good. Other than a couple of bobbles, he has made big plays down the middle.Its a blessing just to be back here playing football, being able to put on that jersey and helmet again, and run around and do what I do, Donnell said.He said working to get back on the field wasnt tough. It was a lot tougher watching his teammates play last season.You always have to prove yourself in that league and thats what I want to get back to doing.Gilbride wants Donnell to play stronger. Thats block better and hold on to the ball once he makes catches. He has fumbled struggling to gain an extra yard.Tye made the rosster as a free agent out of little Stony Brook on Long Island and had 42 catches for 464 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games, including seven starts. Nike Tanjun Clearance. Hes certainly explosive with the football in his hands, Gilbride said. Then he is stout at the point of attack in the run game.What Tye needs to do is lower his pad level so he can get under opponents and move them, Gilbride said.Tye isnt taking anything for granted in this camp. He has a little more confidence than last season, but the butterflies are there.Being undrafted, you always have to prove yourself, he said. Last year I might have played in one or two preseason games. I cant wait for the preseason because I am going to play.LaCosse, who had three catches in two games last season, was getting a lot of work in camp until hurting his right knee this week. He seemingly is close to returning.He brings a knowledge of the position, number one, and hes a big target, Gilbride said, adding that the second-year player does everything well but he is not the best at all the tight end jobs.Malleck had some nice catches in the minicamp after signing as a free agent, while Adams needs to learn the playbook and adjust to playing against bigger and faster players.Its a business, you are not on a scholarship anymore, Adams said.As an H-back, Johnson can line up in the backfield and be a lead blocker, a pass protector or a receiver.Game notes Fridays practice was basically a walk-through. Coach Ben McAdoo plans a fast, physical workout before giving the team off on Sunday. ... The coach is not certain that WR Odell Beckham Jr. will practice Saturday. He was cleated in the lower leg earlier this week and has not practiced at full speed since the injury. ... Cornerback Leon Hall, who was signed on Thursdsay, worked in the slot on Friday.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
