WIMBLEDON, London --?Gilles Simon?threatened to sue the umpire during his defeat to Grigor Dimitrov?as the weather continued to prove a talking point at Wimbledon.Trailing 40-30 in the second game of the second set, Simon exchanged words with umpire John Blom after walking to his chair.I dont want to play, when its raining, on grass. Thats it, he was heard saying, before adding: If I play and get injured, I will sue you and you will pay.A large number of matches scheduled for days two and three of The Championships were delayed by rain, though better conditions allowed for a prompt start to play on Thursday morning.But Simon -- who went on to lose 6-3, 7-6(1), 4-6, 6-4 to Dimitrov -- was unhappy with having to play on when drizzle passed over the All England Club just after 1.30pm.He later told a press conference: I hate to play when its raining. I never understood when they are forcing us to go on the court when the court is slippery. I understand. Its just not acceptable for me.I feel the day Im going to get injured on slippery grass, Im going to sue everyone in the stadium. We try to understand what is happening in both parties, like tournaments and players, but in one point yesterday it was just ridiculous.The supervisor told me, Its raining but the water is not going to the ground. Its really light rain and its there and it stays in the air and its flying away. So the grass is not wet. And I have to answer that. So in the match you just see me on TV, Im pissed because I want to destroy him.Simon said he will discuss the issue with ATP Player Council, of which he is a member, and also criticised the players treatment during the Australian Open.Its happening in basically every slam, so its not just here, he added. Here its always about the grass that is wet. But in Australia they force us to play when its 44 degrees and the doctor says, Yeah, its fine. ?The tournament just got lucky nothing really serious happen once on the court for a player, like someone breaking his leg on slippery court or someone feeling really bad in Australia when its 44.They just try to push. They want us to play. We are just human, or maybe they are just really confident that we are that strong that we can play anywhere. But on my side, I play, its slippery. We all have a bad feeling, we want to stop.Its always on the tournament side. They always force you to play and you cannot say anything. You discuss. You say, Come on, the grass is wet. And then you have the famous water that is not touching the grass reason that force you to play. Its complicated.We are going to have more and more discussion about it [on the ATP Player Council]. We really understand when its a terrible day for the tournament and there is no showing for the public, they stay long and they want to see the match. But its just not possible.I think unfortunately we should stop. It looks pretty simple, like you see the rain on grass, you say, OK, we stop. Thats basic. But it doesnt sound basic on the other side.Dimitrov was more diplomatic afterwards. He said Simon is a cool guy and that they have mutual respect.Everyone has their own way. I understand his frustration, the Bulgarian told a press conference. But its the same for me. We have all the officials out there. We had the umpire coming down, the supervisor, so all these guys are taking unbelievable care of us, to protect us and to take the right decisionsI know when there is a little mist in the air, the grass is a little slippery. Thats logistics, yes. And you just try not to push too much, so you dont want to slide. You have to be a bit more cautious. You cant fight the weather.In other second-round matches Thursday, David Goffin?beat?Edouard Roger-Vasselin?in three sets while Britains Dan Evans saw off?Alexandr Dolgopolov 7-6(6), 6-4, 6-1.Sam Querrey also eased past Thomaz Bellucci for the loss of nine games, while Roberto Bautista Agut got a walkover when Mikhail Kukushkin withdrew with an injury.Bautista Agut is now the highest-ranked Spaniard in the draw after David Ferrer was knocked out. The 13th seed was a surprise casualty, losing in straight sets to Nicolas Mahut 6-1, 6-4, 6-3.Several first-round games, which had been delayed due to the rain, were also finished Thursday. Among them, Donald Young beat Florian Mayer, Lucas Pouille saw off Marius Copil and Australian qualifier Matthew Barton won a deciding set with Albano Olivetti 14-12.John Isner also won his first-round match 7-6 (2), 7-6 (5), 6-3 against Marcos Baghdatis, while sixth seed Milos Raonic, who reached the final at Queens,?progressed to the last 32 with a 7-6(5), 6-4, 6-2 victory over Andreas Seppi.American Steve Johnson, winner of the Nottingham Open, is through to the third round after beating Jeremy Chardy 6-1, 7-6(6), 6-3, while compatriot Jack Sock was a four-set winner over Robin Haase.Croatian Ivo Karlovic, the 23rd seed, hit 34 aces but was beaten 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-4 by Slovakian qualifier?Lukas Lacko, the Slovakian qualifier.

A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. Thomas Delaney Jersey . The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. http://www.footballdortmundpro.com/Kids-Mahmoud-Dahoud-Jersey/ .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. Manuel Akanji Dortmund Jersey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Eric Oelschlagel Jersey . -- Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No.LOS ANGELES -- The San Francisco Giants lost two important players Tuesday night and still managed a critical victory.Eduardo Nunez and Brandon Belt homered to help the Giants overcome injuries to All-Star pitcher Johnny Cueto and shortstop Brandon Crawford in a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.San Francisco pulled into a three-way tie with the Mets and Cardinals for the two NL wild cards. The Giants are five games behind the NL West-leading Dodgers with 11 to play.Cueto (17-5) left in the sixth with a strained groin, but the much-maligned Giants bullpen delivered as three relievers combined to pitch shutout ball over the final 3 2/3 innings.Crawford came out with a dislocated left pinky in the second. An X-ray was negative, and the Giants said he is day to day.A team trainer checked on Cueto with Andrew Toles at bat. The right-hander stayed in and walked Toles, then motioned that he was done.Cueto is scheduled to have an MRI on Wednesday.I felt uncomfortable, he said through a translator. It was bothering me, so thats why I didnt finish the inning.Crawford was injured sliding into third base when he was thrown out trying to advance from first. He said a trainer popped his finger back into place after he came out of the game. He was wearing a splint afterward.At first I was hoping it was just jammed, Crawford said. I went down to kind of feel it when I was on the bag and felt that it was out of place.It was Vin Scully bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium. A sellout crowd gave the longtime broadcaster a loud standing ovation before the game, and Scully responded in kind.The bobblehead featured Scully with his hands over his heart thanking fans, depicting a warm moment from opening day this year. Scully is retiring after this season, his 67th in the booth. His final game will be Oct. 2 when the Dodgers play at San Francisco in their regular-season finale.The attendance of 53,621 was the largest regular-season crowd in Major League Baseball since Aug. 30, 2012, when the Dodgers had another Scully bobblehead giveaway.Rich Hill (12-5) started for the Dodgers and pitched five innings, allowing just one run -- the homer by Nunez -- and six hits while striking out seven and walking one. Hill came out after 77 pitches.Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts took Hill out as a precaution due to concerns about a recurring blister.It was more of preservation, where he was at, and to put him in a situation to go any deeper, Roberts said. Its the blister that were consciously trying to monitor. I think where were at, its a very important game, but I just didnt know how much longer he was going to ggo.dddddddddddd It was going to be another inning at the most anyway. I felt that was good for him.Hills debut with the Dodgers was delayed almost a month because of blister issues. This was his fifth start with the team.I threw the ball well, but at the end of the day it was disappointing, Hill said. One mistake to Nunez, a fastball that was supposed to be down. Completely missed all the way in. He did his job and what he shouldve done with the pitch. I take 100 percent responsibility for this. Its not acceptable to miss like that at this level.Following a bench-clearing scuffle involving Madison Bumgarner and Yasiel Puig on Monday night, Puig, Adrian Gonzalez and other Dodgers posted pictures on social media of themselves wearing T-shirts with the hashtag (hash)Dontlookatme with hands covering their eyes.Roberts was fine with his team having fun with the heated situation Monday.Technology. People are quick these days, he said. I heard about it. I do (like that they had fun). You get two guys competing. They know whats at stake. Emotions get in the way sometimes. I dont think theres anything else to it.The Giants have 29 blown saves, but the bullpen did its job this time following Cuetos early departure. Sergio Romo earned his first save of the season with a hitless ninth.It was just one of those times where it was a really big win for us, Romo said. We really needed that.The Dodgers were 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position.DOUBLE TROUBLECorey Seager doubled in the third, becoming the first Dodgers rookie to have 40 doubles in one season. He was 3 for 4.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: LHP Alex Wood (elbow surgery) came off the 60-day disabled list and RHP Bud Norris was designated for assignment. The Dodgers plan to use Wood out of the bullpen, coming in to start innings. ... LHP Brett Anderson (blister) will return to the rotation and start on Thursday. ... RHP Brandon McCarthy (right hip stiffness) threw a simulated game of five innings and 75 pitches.UP NEXTGiants: LHP Matt Moore nearly threw a no-hitter the last time he was on the mound at Dodger Stadium. He went 8 2/3 innings before Seager ruined the no-hit bid with a blooper to right field. Moore went just five innings against St. Louis in earning the win in his last start.Dodgers: RHP Kenta Maeda (15-9, 3.24 ERA) has given up only four earned runs and struck out 17 over his last three games covering 17 1/3 innings. He has made two starts against the Giants this season and gone 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA. ' ' '
