LONDON -- Venus Williams has gotten this far before. Adidas NMD España . Many times, in fact.Its just been a while.The five-time Wimbledon champion will be playing in the quarterfinals at the All England Club for the 12th time in her career, but the first time since 2010.Yeah, its been a few years. Missed a year or two, said Williams, who has been slowed in recent years by Sjogrens syndrome, a condition that can cause joint pain and saps energy. But Ive been here before. Im not, like, a deer in the headlights.The eighth-seeded Williams will take on Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan on Tuesday, a player she has never faced.Williams reached the quarterfinals by beating Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 7-6 (3), 6-4, while Shvedova defeated 28th-seeded Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 6-4.Ive never played her, so well see how it goes, Williams said. First couple rounds were against players Ive never played. Its always interesting. You spend the first few games trying to figure out whats working, whats not working. It will definitely be that tomorrow.All four womens quarterfinals will be played Tuesday. In the other matches, its: Serena Williams vs. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova; Dominika Cibulkova vs. Elena Vesnina; and Angelique Kerber vs. Simona Halep.One more mens fourth-round match, between Tomas Berdych and Jiri Vesely, will also be completed after darkness suspended play on Monday.Shvedova will be playing in the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time, but she is part of history at the club after winning a golden set in 2012 -- taking every point in a set.Venus, however, is one of the most successful players in Wimbledon history. The 36-year-old American won her first title at the All England Club in 2000, and then added titles in 2001, `05, `07 and `08.She then reached the final in 2009, and the quarterfinals in 2010, but has struggled as the years have passed.I always want more. I want more out of myself, Venus said. For sure, I havent had an easy road, but a lot of people havent. I try not to think about those sorts of things. I try to think about what I can accomplish.Here are some other matches to watch at Wimbledon on Tuesday:SERENA WILLIAMS VS. ANASTASIA PAVLYUCHENKOVA: Serena Williams will be on court for the third straight day as she tries to win her 22nd Grand Slam title.The top-ranked Serena, the younger sister of Venus Williams, is 5-0 against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, but they have never met on grass.Weve had some tough matches in the past, Serena said. Ive lost to players thats never beaten me in the past in some big situations. I definitely dont want that to happen.DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA VS. ELENA VESNINA: With her wedding date in the balance, Dominika Cibulkova will face Elena Vesnina for a spot in the Wimbledon semifinals.Cibulkova had planned to get married on Saturday, the day of the womens final, but said if she wins on Tuesday she will postpone her wedding.Im just really happy right now with my tennis and with my private life, the 27-year-old Cibulkova said. You can see it on the court. We are still keeping this date. Well see whats going to happen.SIMONA HALEP VS. ANGELIQUE KERBER: Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber is one win away from matching her best performance at Wimbledon -- the 2012 semifinals.But Simona Halep, the 2014 French Open finalist, has been getting better on the grass at the All England Club, reaching the quarterfinals last year.I improved a lot in the last period. But grass always was a good surface for me, Halep said. I played well in 2014. I have great memories from here, and Im just trying to improve my game on every surface.TOMAS BERDYCH VS. JIRI VESELY: Tomas Berdych and Jiri Vesely will have to play the fifth set of their fourth-round match on Tuesday.Berdych, the 2010 runner-up at Wimbledon, had five match points in the fourth set, but Vesely forced the tiebreaker and evened the match on his seventh set point.Vesely won the first set 6-4, but Berdych won the next two 6-3, 7-6 (8). Vesely then won the fourth set 7-6 (9). Comprar Adidas Gazelle Baratas .

Numbers Game examines the deal that sees Michael Del Zotto and Kevin Klein switch places. The Predators Get: D Michael Del Zotto. SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- One of the nations most intriguing position battles has ended without a definitive winner, as Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Wednesday that quarterbacks?DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire?will both play in the Fighting Irishs opener at Texas?on?Sept. 4.Kelly said both quarterbacks have been outstanding through camp and that more practices would not have created any separation between the two. The seventh-year Irish coach conceded that each player might be unhappy that the job is not his to keep, but he said the decision was made with the best interest of the team in mind.Kelly said?that both quarterbacks are among his best playmakers and that he would definitely consider playing both on the field at the same time.It was just counterintuitive for me to take one of them off the field at the expense of putting somebody else on the field for so many more plays, he said.?These two guys are too good.Im just watching them in practice every day and theyre making plays -- and then watching our other players around them and theyre clearly not as good as these two guys.Zaire, a redshirt junior, returned this spring after breaking his right ankle in Week 2 at Virginia last season. After Zaires injury, Kizer went 8-3 as a starter.Zaire is 3-0 as a starter, including a 19-for-22, 313-yard performance in last years opener, which was also against Texas.Its not the most ideal situation, but as a pro, you gotta deal with the cards you were dealt and make soomething happen.

My whole goal is to turn chicken crap into chicken salad, Zaire said, laughing.The whole point is we want to win as a team and we want to do this together, and its going to take more than just me, so we need the other 10 guys on the field to make that happen.Kizer, a redshirt sophomore, completed 63 percent of his passes last season for 2,884 yards, with 21 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He added 520 rushing yards and 10 scores on the ground.Coach Kelly has put forth his word that its best to have us both on the field, Kizer said. And however that works is up to him. And hes been doing it for 26 years now, so Im just going to trust his instincts, and whenever he feels the right guy needs to be out there, Im sure hell make that decision.Asked if it was his goal to make this a one-quarterback system, Kizer replied: Absolutely. Theres supposed to be one quarterback on the field at one time, and I committed here, and I decided to play college football so I can be that one guy.When you decide to play this position, especially at this level, Kizer continued, you have to have the desire to be the only guy out there and to truly take credit for all the good and all the bad that happens within the team; thats a part of being the complete quarterback, and in order to do so, I would love for it to be just me.
