MELBOURNE, Australia - Serena Williams cut short a practice on the eve of the Australian Open final against Maria Sharapova due to a cold shes been battling for the past week. Derwin James Jersey .The No. 1-ranked American was shown in footage on Australias Channel 7 network coughing into a towel and blowing her nose before she abandoned the practice session on Friday.She later said in a statement released by the WTA: I had a false start (this morning). I wasnt feeling really well. Ive been sick with a cold all week, and I got better, then I got worse the morning.She was feeling well enough to return to the practice court in the afternoon.Williams will be aiming for her 19th Grand Slam singles title when she takes on Sharapova on Saturday. Virgil Green Chargers Jersey . -- The Los Angeles Clippers chose not to speak publicly about owner Donald Sterling before they faced the Golden State Warriors for Game 4 of their first-round series Sunday. Virgil Green Jersey . The injury will keep the Finnish forward out of the Olympics. The 29-year-old has 20 goals and 41 points in 56 games this season, his first with Tampa Bay.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Brandon Browner received a Super Bowl ring last year even though he was watching from home 3,000 miles from the Seattle Seahawks when they won the title.Now the hard-hitting cornerback has a shot at more diamonds and another title, going face-to-face with receivers when the New England Patriots play his former team Sunday.Its a matchup Browner craved after missing last seasons Super Bowl while under suspension for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy and then signing with the Patriots in March.Its crazy, man, Browner said. I really had that vision when I signed here. Hopefully, wed meet up with my old boys and it happened to work out that way.While Seattle was pounding Denver 43-8 in New Jersey to win the championship, Browner watched from his Los Angeles-area home, frustrated he couldnt be on the field.His indefinite suspension cost him the last two regular-season games plus three post-season games. In March, the indefinite exile was revised to four more games. Ten days later, he signed with the Patriots. After serving the suspension, he was inactive for two games then took over at cornerback opposite Darrelle Revis.He deserves a lot of credit to sit out four games and then come back and fall back right in stride, Patriots safety Devin McCourty said. He hasnt missed a beat since hes been back.At 6-feet-4 and 221 pounds, Browner has a physical style that can intimidate opponents but also hurt the Patriots. He committed 13 penalties while playing in nine regular-season games. But he hasnt backed off.Hes brought an edge to the defence, McCourty said.Now he has added incentive, a chance at a second straight NFL title against a team he has no ill feelings for.I was blessed and fortunate, said Browner, who served another four-game suspension in 2012 for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. I was suspended over there and I was still able to get a ring. That was a decision by the coach and the owner to give me that. Derwin James Chargers Jersey. They didnt have to.Since joining Revis, McCourty and safety Patrick Chung, Browner has solidified an already strong secondary that has great depth with Kyle Arrington, Duron Harmon and Logan Ryan.McCourty said its the most complete secondary hes been part of in five NFL seasons, all with the PatriotsNext up is Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, a constant threat to run who can turn busted plays into critical ones — like his 2-point conversion pass after a scramble in Seattles 28-22 win over the Green Bay Packers for the NFC championship.Browner will try to cover his receiver for as long as it takes to keep Wilson from completing a pass.Brandon Browner is a great professional, Patriots defensive co-ordinator Matt Patricia said, a guy thats very intense, has a great work ethic, really studies hard, has a very competitive side and really wants to try to get everything right.Last season, Browner teamed with Seattles star cornerback Richard Sherman in what became known as a Legion of Boom secondary.This season hes partnered with Revis, a cornerback considered by many to be better than Sherman.Im older than Richard, said the 30-year-old Browner, who spent four years in the CFL with one Grey Cup championship before signing with Seattle in 2011, I came in starting. Richard was one of the backups. So I couldnt take too much from him but Ive always been a fan of Revis technique.Browner has a different style from both. Hes bigger and more physical, a cornerback in a safetys or small linebackers body.And he brings another asset, a burning desire to contribute to a Super Bowl champion after missing that opportunity last year.It means a lot, Browner said. Im fortunate to be back in this thing the following year with a good football team, and with a bond that Ive built with these guys like the one I built with the guys over there. Its a good feeling.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL China NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys White Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
