The day before the biggest match of her life, Genie Bouchard went through a tense practice, which saw her and coach Nick Saviano engage in several heated discussions. Bryan Bulaga Jersey . "Im telling you my opinion," Bouchard was heard to say to Saviano. "So basically, Im not allowed to tell you my opinion?" "No," responded Saviano. The workout ended with the 20-year-old Bouchard hitting the ball into a nearby food court and walking off. Bouchard and Saviano have worked together since she was just 12-years-old. Its a strong relationship. Both have fiery personalities and arent afraid to show it. Saviano was not available for comment after practice while Bouchard, as is custom with tennis players, did not meet with the media on a non-match day. Several veteran journalists said that while this was an unusual exchange between player and trainer, especially considering the timing, but there is no way of knowing what impact, if any, this will have on Bouchards psyche. But if there is one thing Bouchard has shown in her still young professional career, its that she seems to show tremendous poise under fire. "She just finds a way to get herself back into sets and get herself back into matches," said ESPN analyst Darren Cahill. "And then when she gets there, shes not scared of the finish line and I think thats what her greatest quality is." "Experience-wise its a huge gap. Maria was a finalist last year, she won here the year before, shes playing better than anyone on clay than anyone right now, Shes won every Slam once and Genie hasnt even been to a final yet," added Tom Perrotta, tennis reporter for the Wall Street Journal. "Of course the odds are with Maria Sharapova. Shes been in this position many times before but Eugenie has nothing to lose so she can play with youthful abandon, go for broke and see what happens," said Martina Navratilova, who won 18 Grand Slam titles over her career. "Shes been playing well, very smart tennis. It will interesting to see if shes playing just well enough to beat Maria. We know one day she will be playing well enough to beat anybody but is that day here now?"

PHILADELPHIA -- The Flyers had six days to stew over owning the NHLs worst record, with just two points and one win through eight games. Coming off their longest layoff of the season, Philadelphia had to shake off a little rust early, but it might have been the Flyers fresh legs that allowed them to finally finish off the slumping New York Rangers in the third period. Braydon Coburn broke a tie early in the final frame, and Steve Mason made the lead stand up as the Flyers beat the Rangers 2-1 on Thursday night. Entering the game, the Flyers had been outscored 12-2 in the third. Still, they allowed 10 shots and needed Mason to be perfect to preserve the victory. "When you have a one-goal lead, thats what you have to be, right?" Mason said. "Its part of the position. The guys fought really hard. We were only rewarded with two goals, but this was a much better effort." Matt Read scored a short-handed goal and added an assist, and Mason made 30 saves for Philadelphia (2-7), which snapped a four-game losing streak. The Flyers are still off to their worst start through nine games. "This is a big win against a big rival of ours," Mason said. "Getting the two points here and hopefully being able to build off that is something we need to do and start getting ourselves out of this hole." In place of injured regular Henrik Lundqvist, New Yorks Cam Talbot was solid in his NHL debut and made 25 saves. One of his best stops came less than three minutes in on a point-blank shot in the middle from Sean Couturier. "That first save was big, just to kind of feel the puck," Talbot said. "Its a big confidence boost making the first save, obviously, and I shouldve made the rest after that." Despite the rookies strong effort, the Rangers (2-6) lost for the fifth time in six games. New York has one game left on its season-starting, nine-game road trip before its home opener on Monday. The Rangers, who got a goal from Brad Richards, thought they had gotten even at 2, but a video replay determined that J.T. Miller kicked the puck into the net. "I thought we stopped playing a little in the third, just with the puck, playing a little bit too cautious," Flyers coach Craig Berube said. "But we kind of picked it up again, and we were OK." On the winning goal, Philadelphias Wayne Simmonds obstructed Talbots view on Coburns slap shot. Ricky Jean-Francois Jersey. The defenceman beat Talbot stick-side at 3:33 of the third for his second goal of the season. "We want to try to put as many pucks as we can at the net, and we have guys like Wayne, who is great at screening the goalie and cause havoc in there," Coburn said. "As long as you can get the puck through, things can happen." Miller put a rebound past Mason just minutes later during a power play, but the goal was disallowed. "I knew right away that he kicked it," Mason said. Read gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead 10:53 into the game with Philadelphias first short-handed goal this season. Read raced ahead after New York turned over the puck at the Philadelphia blue line. He kept the puck instead of passing to Couturier and scored with a shot between Talbots pads for his first goal of the season. "I was lucky to get a lucky bounce there and get kind of a half breakaway," Read said. "You got to have a shoot-first mentality if you want to score more than two goals a game, and thats something our whole team has to work on." The Rangers tied it with 1:04 left in the first when Richards snapped a quick bad-angle shot from the left end of the goal line that deflected off Coburns leg and slipped past Mason. Chris Kreider and John Moore earned assists on Richards fifth goal. New Yorks Benoit Pouliot was given a major penalty for boarding Philadelphias Max Talbot face-first into the boards in front of the Rangers bench and was ejected from the game with three minutes left in the second period. Philadelphia couldnt capitalize on the lengthy power play that stretched into the third period. The Flyers went 0 for 4 overall on the power play, and are 3 for 37 this season.
