After starting her new partnership with Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic on a winning note by clinching the Cincinnati Open on Sunday, Sania Mirza has said that she has no regrets anymore about having failed to win an Olympic medal in Rio last week. .Sania, who lost the bronze medal play-off in the company of Rohan Bopanna to Radek Stepanek and Lucie Hradecká, left Rio in tears, but has bounced back strongly by claiming her sixth title of the year.Speaking exclusively to ESPN from Cincinnati, Sania admitted that while the loss was extremely shattering she is very proud to have responded to the emotional turmoil by producing some high quality tennis in the course of the week.I dont believe in regrets, Sania said. As an athlete I cant harp on about whether I made that forehand or someone made a serve or we would have won the match, thats not how sport works. In sports it is just about trying and fighting. Some days you fight and fail and some days you succeed and thats why sport is a great leveler.Was it disappointing and extremely shattering? Of course it was, but does that mean my world is over, no of course not. Of course I would have liked to win a medal, its really unfortunate it didnt happen. We tried our best thats all we can do but people have to take things in perspective and understand that we were fourth best in the world. I understand you dont win a medal for that but I will take that, Id rather be the fourth best than the 100th best.The final in Cincinnati also provided an additional sub-plot with Sania overcoming former partner Martina Hingis, who played with American Coco Vandeweghe, 7-5, 6-4 in a tightly contested final.Sania and Hingis had announced the break-up of their hugely successful combination during the Rio Olympics after a string of below-par performances. While not wanting to dwell on the reasons behind their split other than reiterating what was said in their official statement at the time, Sania did concede that playing against Hingis was not the easiest situation.We played each other in the final, which is of course the best time to play each other, she said. It was not the easiest situation, it is a bit weird. There are nerves but at the end of the day we are tennis players and we have to try and win and do our best and we both tried to do the same thing.We had a great partnership but it was time to move on and we have moved on. Weve both had a great tournament. I have to look forward and I have to focus all my energy on this partnership which is obviously doing great.Not surprisingly, Sania was all praise for 30-year old Strycova, who like her plays right-handed with a double-handed backhand. Sania said Strycova was a great fighter and as an example, pointed to the final itself where they were trailing 1-5, 15-40 in the first set before storming back to clinch the next six games to pocket the set.We are really happy, it was a new partnership and we are obviously very happy and excited to have started this way and winning one of the big tournaments of the year, she said. We had a really tough draw. We have beaten some big teams and for us it has been an amazing week.As professional athletes you have to first see whether you match each other on the court, which is what I thought which is why I approached her to play when that split had happened. Obviously I was right because our playing styles compliment each other. We are similar personalities and we will get to know each other better in the course of time. We fight for every point.Strycova and Sania now head to New Haven for their last build-up tournament before the US Open in September. Sania won the final Grand slam of the year in 2015 with Hingis as part of a dream run that saw them construct a 41-match winning streak. Sania is hoping to go from strength to strength with Strycova on her most preferred playing surface - hard courts - for the remainder of the season.We play 25 weeks a year and we cant peak on all those weeks, she said. We are going to have times when are going to play our best and lose and sometimes not play our best and still win. Thats why longevity counts in tennis and sport.Consistent performances matter, its not a flash in the pan of one odd tournament. I have won six tournaments this year and played a bunch of finals which is huge already for this year. The hard courts are my favourite surface. I am looking forward to the next few weeks. I am not going to put any added pressure on myself that this what I need to do or should do.While Sania has turned to a new womens doubles partner, she is not changing course in the mixed doubles, where she will continue to team up with Ivan Dodig, with who she has played the first three Grand Slams of the year.Although Sania spoke warmly of her friendship and understanding with Bopanna in Rio, she says that she remains committed to the partnership with the Croat and the prospect of an all Indian pairing is not on the cards in the immediate future. . Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots on Saturday in the Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat. The Oilers signed Bryzgalov to a one-year $2 million contract last Friday after shedding payroll by dealing defenceman Ladislav Smid to the Flames. . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over Fulham, and Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast clubs impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home. What I love most about running is that all you need to get started are your two feet and a heartbeat. Its one of the most travel-friendly sports since theres minimal gear to pack and you can check out the sights and sounds of a new city while getting in your cardio.But as Ive started running more (and as I enter my thirties), Ive begun to feel fatigue in my arches, calves and knees during and after my run. Ive stretched and massaged but realized it may be time to step up my gear beyond functional and fun sneakers -- its time to upgrade my socks as well.Compression gear functions as a base layer thats extra snug in specific areas. It supposedly helps increase blood flow and reduces lactic acid build-up -- which in turn could diminish my fatigue and speed up my post-run recovery. Ive worn other compression gear like leggings and shorts in the past, so when PRO Compression, a sock-specific company, sent me a few pairs, I was excited and curious to see if it could be the cure to my runners fatigue.The detailsThe socks I tested out were the PRO Compression Marathon Elite socks, the top-of-the-line model which retails for $55. They offer graduated compression, meaning the compression decreases as you move up the leg and closer to your heart. (The idea is that it helps push blood flow back towards the heart -- resulting in better circulation and an easier recovery from exercise.)The socks also have calf support and extra padding in the heel and toe for comfort on long runs. Theyre made of a blend of materials that are meant to wick sweat and smells.The testTo get the best overall impreession of the socks I wore them during runs for a few months throughout the summer -- with shorts, under tights -- and in all kinds of weather. I wore a size small in the Marathon Elite socks and have a 5 ? shoe size. I also tried them out post-run and on recovery days.I have rather large calves and often have a problem finding socks that stay up, but these fit snugly -- as compression gear should. The material did seem to wick away sweat and the socks didnt slip down my calves no matter how hot it was or how hard I ran.I noticed that my arches felt more supported, which meant that I could wear more minimal running sneakers with less pain. It did seem like the tight fit made my calves feel oddly energized, but Im not sure if some of that was a placebo effect from wearing the socks.I was most impressed, though, with how the socks felt when worn during recovery. If I wore them post run (and shower), my calves felt hugged -- as though they were being massaged. They felt so good after one run that I wore the socks out to dinner because they felt too comfortable to take off.Worth it?At $55, these socks are priced right in the middle for compression running socks. Ive worn my pairs multiple times and theyve stood up to plenty of wear and washes. If you find yourself getting calf and foot fatigue or soreness from running -- or want to ease your recovery -- the PRO Compression socks are a decent, comfortable investment that Im happy to recommend.
