SOFIA, Bulgaria - Ana Ivanovic and Simona Halep cruised to straight-set victories on Tuesday in their opening round-robin matches at the season-ending Tournament of Champions. Daryl Williams Jersey . Top-seeded Halep of Romania defeated Russias Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-3, 6-3 in the Serdika group, while the other tournament favourite, Ivanovic, routed Bulgarias Tsvetana Pironkova 6-0, 6-2 in the Sredets group. In Tuesdays third match, third-seeded Maria Kirilenko retired due to injury against Frances Alize Cornet, and had to quit the tournament for a second consecutive year. Cornet was leading 5-0 in the first when Kirilenko called for a medical time out, before later abandoning the competition. Ukraines Elina Svitolina will replace Kirilenko. Matt Kalil Jersey . Trailing 4-1 in the final set, Sharapova steadied her erratic service game and took command again to beat the 56th-ranked American 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 on clay at the Magic Box tennis centre. The ninth-ranked Russian looked to be cruising before McHale broke late in the second set to tie the match and then took her commanding lead in the final set after breaking Sharapova. Scott Simonson Jersey . Jose Bautista homered for the fifth straight game in the sixth inning, following a two-out solo homer by Melky Cabrera. Edwin Encarnacion led off the seventh with a homer to tie the game 3-3 and, with two out in the seventh, Munenori Kawasaki came through with the two-out single to score pinch-runner Steve Tolleson with what proved to be the winning run. http://www.nflpanthersgearofficial.com/sam-mills-jersey/ . Raonic, the mens No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed more than three hours to overcome Frenchman Gilles Simon 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 and become the first Canadian man into the fourth round at Roland Garros. MADRID, Spain -- Neymar scored his first league goal and helped Barcelona ease past Real Sociedad 4-1 in the Spanish league on Tuesday and stay perfect after six rounds. Atletico Madrid also stayed perfect thanks to goals by Diego Costa in a 2-1 win against Osasuna, giving it 18 points, although Barcelona stay top with its better goal differential. Neymar opened the scoring in the fourth minute before two more goals from Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets inside 25 minutes left Real Sociedad reeling at the Camp Nou. The Brazil forward made the most of hesitation between two Sociedad defenders and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo to rush forward and poke the ball home for his first goal since joining the champions in the close season for 57 million euros ($76 million), . "It doesnt matter that it was a scrambled goal, what is important is that it went in," said Neymar. "The team is getting better all the time." Messi lunged headlong four minutes later to score past Bravo from Neymars cross for his seventh league goal this season. A minute later Bravo was forced to sprint forward and punch away a head-high ball as Neymar arrived alone into the penalty area. Sociedad captain Xabier Prieto fell to the ground clutching his right thigh and had to be substituted in midfield by Imanol Agirretxe in the 21st. Busquets scored Barcelonas third two minutes later after the ball had bounced off the crossbar from Messis close-range shot. Mascherano was substituted at half time by Marcc Bartra, and Barcelona upped the pressure on Bravo, who was forced to save twice and watch another shot go just over the bar in a 10-minute spell. Fozzy Whittaker Jersey. Sociedad pulled one back when Agruirretxe beat Gerard Pique and passed the ball across the goalmouth for Alberto de la Bella to tap into goal past a stranded Victor Valdes in the 64th. "One of our starting premises was not to allow them to score in the first few minutes, which is something weve done in other years, and look what happened," said de la Bella. "Playing like this in the Camp Nou makes it very difficult for us." In the 76th minute, Messi dribbled past three defenders before crossing to Bartra who flicked the ball into goal to complete the rout. Costa scored his sixth league goal of the season for Atletico when he deftly flicked in a cross in the 18th and he then doubled his tally with a sublime header from a Jorge "Koke" Resurreccion assist in the 25th. Oriol Rieira pulled one back for Osasuna in the 43rd. Atletico coach Diego Simeone chose to rest striker David Villa and began with an all-Brazillian attack of Baptistao and Diego Costa. Elsewhere, Levante drew 1-1 with Valladolid. Baba Diawara opened the scoring for Levante in the 35th minute and Javier Guerra equalized six minutes later. Malaga beat Almeria 2-0 with goals by Fernando Tissone and Francisco Portillo. On Wednesday Real Madrid travels to Elche, Sevilla hosts Rayo Vallecano and Granada plays Valencia.
