STUTTGART, Germany -- Jelena Jankovic beat Samantha Stosur 6-4, 6-4 to advance to the second round of the Porsche Grand Prix on Wednesday. But another former No. 1 in the world, Caroline Wozniacki, lost in the first round, falling to Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-1. The former top-ranked Dane squandered a 3-0 lead in the first set and never recovered after losing the tiebreaker. Jankovic now has a 6-2 career lead over Stosur, though she had lost to the Australian the last time they played on clay, in the semifinals of the 2010 French Open. "Ive had some good results this year," the Serb said. Jankovic won in Bogota and was runner-up in Charleston. Jankovic broke serve for a 5-4 lead but struggled to serve out the first set. She also wasted two match points at 5-3 on Stosurs serve in the second, before using her third match point on an error by Stosur. The Stuttgart tournament is played on indoor clay. Also, fifth-seeded Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, a former Wimbledon champion, beat wild-card entry Annika Beck of Germany 7-5, 6-7 (0), 6-3 after breaking serve for the second time in the final set for a 5-2 lead. Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic beat Mona Barthel of Germany 6-4, 6-1. Barthel said she was tired after helping Germany defeat Serbia in the Fed Cup playoffs for a place in the World Group. Safarova won nine of 10 games from 4-3 down. She also played Davis Cup over the weekend, losing in Italy. "Todays match was a good one to get through," Safarova said. "I was playing against an opponent who had been practicing here on the centre court in the lead-up to the Fed Cup tie on the weekend. "It took me a few games to get my rhythm because the conditions here are so different to Fed Cup in Palermo, where the surface was very slow - here its much faster and it took a while to get used to," Safarova said. Julia Goerges of Germany, who beat Wozniacki for the 2011 title in Stuttgart, advanced to the second round when Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium retired with stomach problems. Goerges was leading 6-2, 2-1. www.uscoltsnfl.com/Colts-Matt-Hasselbeck-Nike-Jersey/ . Wright homered twice and Jason Pridie hit the first home run of his major league career in the Mets 8-4 win Sunday over the Arizona Diamondbacks. www.uscoltsnfl.com/Colts-Ahmad-Bradshaw-Nike-Jersey/ . Sanchez, 30, appeared in five games for the Pirates this season, and went 0-3 with an 11.85 ERA. He worked 2 1-3 innings Monday against the Brewers and allowed two runs on four hits, including two home runs. http://www.uscoltsnfl.com/Colts-Lavon-Brazill-Nike-Jersey/. Ryan Suter helped Minnesota keep Chicagos high-powered attack in check, and the Wild still lost Game 1 to the Blackhawks. www.uscoltsnfl.com/Colts-Andrew-Luck-Nike-Jersey/ . Raikkonen, who won the season-opening Australian GP, was 0.03 seconds faster than Webber and 0.12 quicker than Vettel. "Its nice to be fastest but you never know what the others are doing," said Raikkonen, who won the drivers championship in 2007. www.uscoltsnfl.com/Colts-Anthony-Castonzo-Nike-Jersey/ . The 29-year-old hit .313 with five home runs and 10 RBIs last year, when he didnt play after April 30 because of a herniated disk in his neck. He made $490,500. Reimolds agreement, announced Friday, avoided salary arbitration.For the Montreal Impact, its good to be back home. The expansion Impact have spent much of their inaugural MLS season on the road where they are 0-5-1. At home they are 1-0-1. No team has played more on the road this season as Montreals schedule was loaded with early away games in advance of the mid-June opening of the revamped Saputo Stadium. By contrast, Toronto FC (0-6-0) has played just two games away from home going into its visit to Real Salt Lake on Saturday. Captain Davy Arnaud says the Impact deserve better than their record shows. "The way that weve played and the way as a group weve handled ourselves has been very good," the veteran midfielder said. "Im being honest with you, I dont know if Ive been on a team where this many good performances in a row have been put together on the road. Performances that are worthy of getting points and for whatever reason weve left games without points when we probably deserve something out of them. "I think were headed in the right direction. The way that the coaches are asking us to play, everybody 100 per cent believes in. And we have a really good group. I think a couple bounces here or there, once we start getting things turned our way in terms of getting the right results, I think were going to move up the table and be pushing for a playoff spot." On Saturday, the Impact welcomes the Portland Timbers (2-4-1) to Olympic Stadium. Montreal will be fresh, coming off a 10-day gap between games. The Timbers hope to have started their own turnaround. They ended a franchise-record four-game losing streak last Saturday with a 1-0 win over powerful Sporting Kansas City. "I know (Portland coach) John Spencer is a very passionate guy," said Arnaud. "He demands a lot from his team. You know the kind of game youre going to get. "Theyre going to come out ready tto fight.dddddddddddd" The game marks a reunion of sorts for Arnaud. He spent eight seasons in Kansas City with midfielder Jack Jewsbury, now captain of the Timbers. "Montreal, even though they had their struggles, theyve been a tough team at home," Jewsbury told the Oregonian. Record aside, there are good signs for the Impact. While Montreal is in the middle of the MLS pack with seven goals, it ranks third in the league in shots (110) and second in shots on goal (40). Many of those shots have been from long-range, however. Still Arnaud says the willing offence bodes well in a cosmopolitan dressing room that features 13 different nationalities. "Especially with a new group, finding a good rhythm offensively and knowing each others tendencies, that can take a while to develop," the five-foot-11 160-pounder said. "So thats a positive thing for us. Weve had our share of chances and weve played six of our first eight games on the road now. I think that says a lot about our team. Its a small piece but it shows were very capable." The 31-year-old Texas native has already made his mark in Montreal, scoring the franchises first goal in a 1-1 tie with Chicago in the teams home opener before 58,912 at Olympic Stadium. "You get some moments in your career youre never going to forget and thats definitely one of them," said Arnaud, who has won seven caps for the U.S. "It was special for sure." The Impact is coming off a 1-1 tie at D.C. United, Montreals first road point of the season. Italian striker Bernardo Corradi scored the Impact goal, his second in as many games. Montreal and Portland had some business earlier in the week, with the Impact sending forward Mike Fucito to the Timbers for a SuperDraft second round pick in 2013 or an international roster slot through Dec. 31, 2013.
