MASON, Ohio -- Fresh off their inspired performances at the Rogers Cup, Canadians Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil are into the second round of the Western & Southern Open. Marek Mazanec Jersey . Raonic, who dropped Sundays final in Montreal to Rafael Nadal, defeated Jack Sock 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Tuesday night to advance at the tournament just outside Cincinnati. "Mentally I felt good, it was a bit about getting used to the conditions and the environment," Raonic said of his slow start against the American. "I stuck through it and in the second set I stayed positive and started to play a bit more aggressive. The 12th seed from Thornhill, Ont., Raonic lost to Sock in Memphis in February after winning in San Jose the previous week for the third year running. Raonic, now ranked a career-high 10th on the ATP Tour after beating Pospisil in the Rogers Cup semifinals, disposed of Sock in just under two hours. He will meet Serbias Janko Tipsarevic in the next round. "Tipsarevic will be a tough opponent," said Raonic. "Ive got to keep doing what Ive been doing, clean up my service games a bit and get better at closing it out." Pospisil, now also ranked a career-best at No. 40, advanced when Frances Gilles Simon retired with an injury. Simon was trailing 6-3, 1-1 when he ended the match. "It was a strange match," Pospisil said. "I started out well but I noticed that something was going on with him, I think it might have been the hip. "It was difficult to play from that point. It was fortunate for me and unfortunate for him." The Vernon, B.C., native needed just 36 minutes to sweep the opening set against Simon, who lost his fifth match in a row and hasnt won since mid-June. Pospisil faces Belgiums David Goffin in the next round. "The match will be tough and I dont see a clear favourite," Pospisil said. "Hes a dangerous player, very talented, and has beaten some top players. Well have to see." Meanwhile, defending mens champion and fifth-seeded Roger Federer advanced to the third round with a 6-3, 7-6 (7) win over 29th-ranked Philipp Kohlschreiber. "It was just really important to play somewhat of a clean match," said Federer, who already has won a record five W&S championships and improved to 7-0 in his career against Kohlschreiber. "Straight sets is always a good match. Its a good win for me." John Isner defeated Florian Mayer 6-3, 6-4, and Grigor Dimitrov defeated Brian Baker 6-3, 6-2. Third-seeded David Ferrer edged Ryan Harrison 7-6 (5), 3-6, 6-4. On the womens side, Maria Sharapovas return to WTA tournament play after more than a month away was short-lived following an upset loss to 17th-ranked American Sloane Stephens 2-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3. In a match that lasted two hours 22 minutes, Stephens overcame double faults on two match points to pick up her first victory over Sharapova in four meetings. "It definitely started out rough," Stephens said. "A set and 0-2, she was killing it. Im glad I was able to turn it around and start playing good tennis." Sharapova, the 2011 W&S champion and a 2010 finalist, showed no traces of the hip injury that had kept her sidelined since a second-round loss at Wimbledon. "I thought I started the match off pretty well, but when you put yourself in a really good position, you cant let it go," Sharapova said. "Thats what I did tonight. I didnt continue what I was doing well for the first set and a half, and that hurt me. "You know, I stopped being patient. I started making a lot more errors, especially off the first ball -- just errors that I shouldnt make. Obviously I havent played in a long time, but I cant make that excuse for myself because Ive got to be ready from the first match. So its obviously disappointing, but thats the way it goes in this game." Jimmy Connors, who won the tournament 41 years ago, watched from the stands in his first match as Sharapovas coach. She hired Connors, the 1972 champion and a 1986 finalist, in mid-July. Fourteenth-seeded Jelena Jankovic, the 2009 champion and 2011 runner-up, advanced to the second round with a 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-2 win over Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisiski. In earlier action, second-seeded Victoria Azarenka held off an upset bid by qualifier Vania King to pull out a 6-1, 7-6 (6) win and advance to the third round. Azarenka rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the second set to force the tiebreaker against the 140th-ranked American. Azarenka, who has been bothered by a lower back injury, won her first match since losing to Samantha Stosur in the finals of the Southern California Open two weeks ago. "I think the beginning of the second set wasnt very good for me," Azarenka said. "There were quite a few unforced errors and just really fast mistakes, which didnt happen in the first set." Varvara Lepchenko advanced with a 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 win over Flavia Pennetta, and Jamie Hampton needed three sets to overcome Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 7-5, 4-6, 6-3. Alize Cornet rallied past Ana Ivanovic 2-6, 7-6 (8), 6-4. Sorana Cirstea, the 21st-ranked Romanian who lost to No. 1 Serena Williams in the finals of the Rogers Cup in Toronto on Sunday, withdrew from her first-round match against Yanina Wickmayer. Cirstea was replaced by No. 43 Monica Niculescu, who lost in this past weekends qualifying but stayed around in case a spot opened up in the singles main draw and to play doubles. The Romanian capitalized on her second chance with a 6-1, 6-2 win over the 58th-ranked Wickmayer. No. 10 seed Caroline Wozniacki easily advanced with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Shuai Peng.

The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose.That familiar bell toll will be heard on Tuesdays 900th episode of WWE Smackdown when The Undertaker makes his return. The Phenom has been absent from WWE television since defeating Shane McMahon in a hard-hitting Hell in a Cell Match at WrestleMania 32 in April.But he will make a special appearance on a landmark episode of the blue brand, a show you can catch live on Sports 5 at 1am (Wednesday morning). Live WWE: Late Night - Smackdown November 16, 2016, 1:00am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Ahead of his comeback, we look at what The Deadman may have planned…Compete in the ringThe Undertaker wrestled on the first episode of Smackdown - The Phenom teaming with Triple H to take on The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin in April 1999 - while he has also fought on many of the brands milestone shows, including on edition No 500 against John Bradshaw Layfield. Will The Undertaker wrestle on this weeks Smackdown? Therefore, it would be fitting if Taker dusted of his wrestling garb in Pennsylvania this week. Smackdown fans will be crying out for it, too, as it has been well over three years since he last wrestled on the show - the veteran overcoming Dean Ambrose at Londons O2 Arena in April 2013. Take out that match and Takers last bout in a Smackdown ring was against CM Punk, way back in October 2010 in Oklahoma.Team with KanePrior to his clash with McMahon at The Show of Shows this spring, Undertakers previous WWE contest came a year ago at the 2015 edition of Survivor Series, as he banded with half-brother Kane to defeat Bray Wyatt and The Eater of Worlds minion, Luke Harper. Kane has had his issues with Wyatt and Harper of late, too, as well as Randy Orton, who appears to have become fully embedded in The Wyatt Family. WWE Rewind: Survivor Series 2015 Kane and The Undertaker defeated The Wyatt Family Perhaps its time for Kane and his fellow Brother of Destruction, Undertaker, to join forces and put The Wyatts in their place again? Yet, could they instead challenge Smackdown Tag Team Champions, Heath Slater and Rhyno, and aim for their fourth title reign as a duo?Fight KaneUndertaker and Kanes relationship is somewhat akin to the one shared by former Oasis siblings Liam and Noel Gallagher - they have their good moments but there are plenty of bust-ups, too. The Phenom and The Big Red Monster have seen eye-to-eye for a while now, with their last match against each other coming at the Bragging Rights pay-per-views in 2010 when The Nexus helped Kane beat The Undertaker in a Buried Alive match to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Kane is also set to appear on Smackdowns 900th episode It would, however, not take much for animosity to build between the brothers, something that could perhaps set up a third WrestleMania showdown between the two, following Takers wins in 1998 and 2004.Mix it with McMahonWhile Takers whereabouts since WrestleMania are unknown - besides when he met up with Cleveland Cavaliers to help the basketball outfit celebrate their winning first NBA Title - Shane McMahon has been a key figure on Tuesday nights in his job as Smackdown Commissioner. McMahon on Team Smackdown Blue-brand Commissioner to wrestle at Survivor Series The 46-year-old will put the match-making to one side at Suurvivor Series on Sunday when he wrestles for his brand against Team Raw, something he will surely address when he guests on Tuesdays episode of The Cutting Edge, hosted, of course, by WWE Hall of Famer Edge. Nashville Predators Jersey. Could The Undertaker appear on the show, too, to give McMahon some words of encouragement - or even challenge him to a tune-up match?Add himself into Survivor SeriesThe Undertakers in-ring debut for WWE came at Survivor Series in 1990, The Phenom making his mark by eliminating Koko. B Ware and Dusty Rhodes. The WWE legend has gone on to make a record 18 Survivor Series appearances - one more than Shawn Michaels - and landed 13 wins, including beating Hulk Hogan to win his first WWE Title in 1991. The Undertaker defeated Hulk Hogan on his second appearance at Survivor Series So if he fancies another bout at WWEs Fall Classic, no-one is really going to say no - even if the list of potential opponents has shortened with Brock Lesnar and Goldberg facing each other and most of the companys other top names competing in the evenings Raw versus Smackdown tussles.What do you think The Undertaker will do on Smackdowns 900th episode?
