Defending champions Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams raced into the Australian Open second round on Monday as the year's first Grand Slam was rocked by claims of widespread match-fixing in tennis.
Former winners Roger -Federer and Maria Sharapova also progressed smoothly on a day of high temperatures at Melbourne Park Alex Pietrangelo Youth Jersey , where one ball boy felt faint and had to be helped from the court.
Djokovic's main opponent was the 35 C heat as, cooling himself with ice vests on the changeovers, the top seed dispatched Korean rising star Chung Hyeon 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.
"You try to stay composed Paul Stastny Youth Jersey , not get carried away by heat, get distracted," said the Serb, who was forced out of the 2009 quarterfinals as he struggled with the heat.
Williams also made a positive return to competitive tennis, four months after a heartbreaking defeat in the US Open semifinals ended her bid for a rare calendar-year Grand Slam.
Showing no discomfort from the swollen knee which forced her out of this month's Hopman Cup mixed-team tournament Dmitrij Jaskin Youth Jersey , Williams toughed it out 6-4, 7-5 against Italy's -Camila Giorgi.
Williams, 34, is seeking an Open-era record-equaling 22nd Grand Slam title, while Djokovic can become only the second man to win six Australian Open crowns after Roy Emerson.
Federer was also untroubled in his 6-2 Alexander Steen Youth Jersey , 6-1, 6-2 win over Georgia's Nicoloz Basilashvili as he continued his quest for a record-extending 18th Grand Slam title.
Sharapova, the women's winner in 2008, beat Japan's Nao Hibino 6-1, 6-3 in just 73 minutes in her first match of the year.
Kei Nishikori Brayden Schenn Youth Jersey , Tomas Berdych and Australia's Nick Kyrgios also went through without significant problems, while Caroline Wozniacki was the biggest casualty on day one.
The former world No.1, who joined fellow seeds Sloane Stephens, Sara Errani and Ivo Karlovic on the sidelines, was stunned in three sets by -Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva.
American Stephens Scottie Upshall Youth Jersey , seeded 24th and a former semifinalist, was stunned by Chinese qualifier Wang Qiang 6-3, 6-3.
Canada's Eugenie Bouchard safely reached the second round, and Spain's Carla -Suarez Navarro earned applause when she helped a ball boy from the court as he swooned in high temperatures.
The day was overshadowed by a report which said top-50 players, including Grand Slam champions Joel Edmundson Youth Jersey , had repeatedly been suspected of match-fixing without facing action.
Three suspect matches were at Wimbledon, and eight of the players under suspicion were due to take to the courts for the Australian Open, the BBC and BuzzFeed claimed.
Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) chief Chris Kermode rejected any suggestion that match-fixing evidence had been covered up or ignored.
"The Tennis Integrity Unit and the tennis authorities absolutely reject any suggestion that evidence of match-fixing has been suppressed for any reason or isn't being thoroughly investigated," Kermode told -reporters.
Entertaining friends and family in your home during the Christmas holiday is one of the most popular activities of the holiday season. Many people choose to host small, informal gatherings in their home Carl Gunnarsson Youth Jersey , while others plan extravagant dinner parties which are destined to generate more than one urban legend in the community in which they are held.
While many of us do not aspire to such heights as those held by the socialites in our community, we would still like to host an unforgettable Christmas dinner party that will be remembered fondly among our closest friends and family for years to come.
If you are like me, and many are if they would just admit it, the thought of all of the work and skill that goes into throwing a successful dinner party leaves you a little weak in the knees and wondering how in the world you are going to pull it all off without a hitch.
But don't let the fear of juggling the tasks involved with putting on a dinner party keep you from hosting the event that your family and friends will talk about for a long time into the future. It's really not that hard if you follow a few simple steps and guidelines for putting on a successful dinner party.
Here's how to plan the perfect Christmas dinner party:
Make your list, check it twice Jaden Schwartz Youth Jersey , and invite, invite, invite. The first thing you need to do when planning a dinner party is to create your guest list. Keep in mind that not all invited will attend. So, if you want to have 50 guests at your party, you will have to invite quite a few more than that. Send out invitations no less than three weeks in advance so that people will have a chance to RSVP.
Plan to cook your own meal or plan for others to plan it for you. If you are no Betty Crocker Vladimir Tarasenko Youth Jersey , admit it to yourself before signing on to make a large homemade meal. Having someone cater your dinner party or ordering takeout is perfectly acceptable depending on what type of atmosphere you want to create.
Remember that buffets are informal and a sit down dinner is more formal. I'm not saying that you are not capable of cooking a large meal for your guests. If you are and want to take on the work load of cooking for multiple guests, then by all means do so. Just keep in mind your limitations and time constraints. Doing so will save you a great deal of headache in the end.
Menu planning. When planning your individual dishes to serve at your Christmas dinner party, choose dishes that are both delicious and easy to make. Choose recipes that can be made ahead of time or that require just a little heating right before the party to be finished. The last thing you want to be doing during your dinner party is slaving over a hot stove sequestered away from your guests. Another importan.
