MELBOURNE, Australia - Serena Williams lost two of four singles matches in her preparations for the Australian Open, while Maria Sharapova won the Brisbane International.Despite those contrasting results for the top two women in tennis, neither player was reading too much into their form lines a few days from Mondays start of the first Grand Slam of the year.Williams wasnt pleased with her two singles losses at the Hopman Cup team event in Perth, including in straight sets to Canadian Eugenie Bouchard, but said Saturday there is a little light at the end of the tunnel.Im never really happy about my practice or preparation, the top-seeded Williams said Saturday. So maybe thats a good sign. I definitely feel better now than I did a couple weeks ago. But every day I can see something coming through.Second-seeded Sharapova said although she played well at Brisbane and had a tough final against Ana Ivanovic, every weeks a surprise.You cant be overly negative; you cant be overly positive, Sharapova said Saturday. I wanted to start off well. I thought I did many things well. But Im not going into next week throwing flowers at myself or anything. Im starting from scratch. Im hungry. Im determined to do better.Sharapova, last years French Open winner and the 2008 champion at Melbourne Park, lost in the fourth round here to Dominika Cibulkova last year, saying she was affected by a hip injury.Williams also exited last year in the fourth round, losing to Ivanovic.Last year I felt really good, was playing well ... feeling amazing on the court, Williams said. This year I feel a little off. But I feel off in every Grand Slam. Last year, that didnt work out for me, so maybe this is different.Williams will play Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium in the first round — I heard her first name was Alison, Williams said, preferring not to try to pronounce her opponents last name.Sharapova has drawn an as-yet undetermined qualifier, as has Ivanovic. The two could meet in the semifinals of their half of the draw, while Williams could meet Cibulkova or close friend Caroline Wozniacki en route to a semifinal possibly against Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova or sixth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska.Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open winner who won four singles titles last year to move back into the top five, said shes confident coming into Melbourne Park. She and Sharapova will play their first matches Monday.I really felt I made big steps towards winning more matches, beating top players, Ivanovic said of her 2014 season. These kinds of things you sort of have to have in place in order to do well at the big events. I feel like Im ready for the next step. Hydro Flask Cena . The 33-year-old Spaniard, who held the lead since the second round, turned in a solid final round that featured six birdies and two bogeys to finish on 22-under 266.

After a somewhat calm first round against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Montreal Canadiens are gearing up for what is expected to be an intense second round matchup against the Original Six rival Boston Bruins. The Habs have won three of the four meetings against the Bruins this season but that doesnt mean much for the Habs. "They have so much playoff experience," said Canadiens forward Daniel Briere. "The Bruins have been to the Stanley Cup Finals twice in the past three years; winning once and losing to the Chicago Blackhawks last season. They are a team that knows what it takes to win. " Emotions are expected to play a key role in this series and the team that does a better job keeping them in check could possibly be the one that comes out on top. "Coming into this series, Im sure that is something we are going to talk a lot about," Briiere added.dddddddddddd "We need to be good at controlling our emotions and I expect the Bruins to do the same." The Canadiens have been able to get under the Bruins skin this season and forced them to play their style of game, but what has worked in the regular season doesnt automatically mean it will have the same result in the postseason. "The playoffs are a completely different game; we know we have a great challenge ahead of us. Were going to have to fight for everything," Josh Gorges told the media on Sunday. Now that the Canadiens know who theyll be facing in the second round, Michel Therrien has made a slight change to his line up at practice, opting to p
