NEW YORK -- It was almost a perfect day for Serena Williams. She coasted into the US Open quarterfinals with her most impressive performance of the tournament. She surpassed Roger Federer with an all-time record 308th Grand Slam match victory.Even the weather was unexpectedly glorious as she took the Ashe Stadium court.If only the groans hadnt just died down from big sister Venus loss in a dramatic third-set tiebreaker, eliminating any chance of an all-Williams semifinal, Labor Day would have been exactly as drawn up.Instead, Serena would settle for steady progress, another career milestone and a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Yaroslava Shvedova.I just feel like Im going out there doing what I need to do, Serena said. Im not overplaying, Im not underplaying. Im just trying to play my way into this tournament.Of course, few players but Williams can call a 68-minute, straight-set win in which she never faced a break point, had 11 aces, a 93 percent first-serve percentage and ripped 28 winners to Shvedovas 11, playing your way in.Williams also had the fastest serve of the tournament at 126 mph, another apparent sign that her right shoulder is pretty stable, and said afterward that she couldnt believe how consistently she served.I dont think I really served in the summer until I got here to New York, she said. It was a really tough summer for me. Maybe thats the key.However she got here, she is still looking ahead to Grand Slam title No. 23, which would be a new Open-era record, while now looking back at Federers all-time major match victory mark.Its a huge number, Williams said after some prodding. I think its very significant actually. I think its something that just really talks about the length of my career, in particular. Ive been playing for a really long time but also, given that consistency up there, thats something Im really proud of.As she approaches her 35th birthday later this month, she admits that she even amazes herself.I definitely never thought I would be playing still, she said. Now, I dont see when Im going to stop because Im just enjoying these moments out here, getting to break records that I didnt even know existed or I didnt know was possible.As she readies for a quarterfinal berth against No. 5 Simona Halep, her first seeded opponent in the tournament, Williams said she fully expects to get Haleps best.I just think with everyone I play, they play a step up and above their ranking, she said. To me, it doesnt really matter who I play because I have to expect theyre going to play the match of their life. Thats how I go into these matches now.The bad news for Halep, who has lost seven of eight meetings with Williams, is that Serenas comment the other day that I dont feel like Im Serena out there yet took on a more hopeful tone after Monday.Shes coming, Williams promised. She hasnt quite come out yet, though.Almost perfect. Cheap China Jerseys .

Wholesale China Jerseys . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. Jerseys From China . DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. A postseason rampage put both Alabama and the Southeastern Conference back on top in college football last season.Now, the trick will be staying there with three new coaches in the East and quarterback uncertainty across much of the league, including at `Bama.The Crimson Tide is once again the team to beat in the league, and perhaps nationally, after claiming the SECs eighth national title in 10 seasons. That broke a two-year drought for the league, which went 9-2 in the postseason counting the Tides playoff wins over Michigan State and Clemson.Alabama defensive end Jonathan Allen doesnt think coach Nick Saban will let complacency set in.The biggest thing at Alabama is that if you dont have hunger, Allen said, then youre not going to start this year.Its a luxury afforded by a string of top-rated recruiting classes, even with an unproven backfield.Tennessee and Mississippi, who have the SECs most accomplished returning passers in Joshua Dobbs and Chad Kelly, are trying to continue climbing the ranks.Longtime Tide defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is now trying to get Georgia over the hump. Will Muschamps back in the SEC East at South Carolina and Barry Odom is trying to lead a comeback to division contention at Missouri.In the West, Auburn and Texas A&M are trying to bounce back while LSU aims for a stronger finish.THE FAVORITESEast: Tennessee. Butch Jones has positioned the Volunteers, led by Dobbs, as front-runners for their first division title since 2007. They have 17 starters back from a team that went 9-4. Florida is the defending champion while three of the seven teams have new coaches. Unlike Tennessee, potential challengers Florida and Georgia entered fall camp without an established No. 1 quarterback.West: Alabama. The defending national champions, as usual, have talent all over the field. Cooper Bateman is the only quarterback with college experience, but Blake Barnett and David Cornwell were highly rated recruits. The division is typically loaded with coach Les Miles and Leonard Fournette trying to lead LSU back from late-season stumbles. Kelly helps make Mississippi -- which has beaten the Tide two straight years -- a strong threat, too.ddddddddddddTOP PLAYERSLeonard Fournette, RB, LSU. Consensus All-American flirted with a 2,000-yard season and was a big Heisman Trophy favorite early last season. A more consistent passing game would help him out.Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M. In a league full of elite pass rushers, he may be the best. Has 24 sacks in two seasons.Cam Robinson, LT, Alabama. Started every game in his first two seasons and will be blocking for a new backfield.Chad Kelly, QB, Mississippi. Sugar Bowl MVP had third-most passing and total yards of any SEC quarterback in a season.Nick Chubb/Sony Michel, RBs, Georgia. Both are trying to return from injuries, and both have posted huge numbers when healthy.NEW FACESKirby Smart, Georgia. The standard was made crystal clear when Mark Richt was fired after winning double-digit games nine times in 15 seasons. Smart will be chasing his mentor, Saban.Trevor Knight, QB, Texas A&M. The former Oklahoma starter could be the biggest on-field addition for any SEC team. Doesnt hurt that he once led a Sugar Bowl win over Alabama.Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama. He and fellow sophomore Damien Harris are vying to replace Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry. Its the first time Saban hasnt had an experienced back returning.ON THE HOT SEATGus Malzahn, Auburn. Three years removed from an SEC title, hes been unable to beat the top teams since. Quarterback struggles held back his normally prolific, fast offense last season.Kevin Sumlin, Texas A&M. An 11-13 record in SEC games over the past three seasons and trouble holding onto quarterbacks could at least make it lukewarm.Les Miles, LSU. Last years groundswell of support and a talented roster make him secure -- at least until the next three-game losing streak.Derek Mason, Vanderbilt. Two SEC wins in as many seasons but 16 returning starters, including RB Ralph Webb and LB Zach Cunningham.PICKSEast: Tennessee. West: Alabama. League champion: Alabama.
