Top-seeded Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia earned her second

TASHKENT -- Top-seeded Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia earned her second career WTA title on Saturday by outlasting Olga Govortsova of Belarus 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (3) in the final of the Tashkent Open. Jovanovski was broken twice in the first set but bounced back by breaking her opponent three times in the second. Both players finished with five breaks of serve each in a match that lasted nearly 3 hours. The 21-year-old Jovanovski also won a tournament in Baku last year, while the 113th-ranked Govortsova was looking for her first WTA title. She made her first Grand Slam appearance at this years U.S. Open. . Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said Malkin will not play against the New York Islanders on Sunday night. Malkin, who missed four games with a concussion late last month, just returned to the lineup on Monday. . PETERSBURG, Fla. … mer-Jersey . The 26-year-old Drazenovic has 16 goals and 45 points in 46 games for the Falcons this season.

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- Antonio Cromartie thinks hes the second-best wide receiver on the New York Jets behind Santonio Holmes. One problem: Hes a cornerback. Cromarties bold comments predictably didnt sit well with the Jets actual receivers, particularly Chaz Schilens, who thinks his teammate should pipe down. "I think its a slight," Schilens said after practice at training camp Wednesday. "Im not going to lie. I just wouldnt say it. Its not something I would say. Im not him, I guess." Cromartie, who could play some at receiver this season, was asked on "ESPN First Take" on Tuesday where he thinks hed rank on the teams depth chart. He said hed be second to Holmes -- putting him ahead of every other receiver, including Schilens, who signed as a free agent in March. "I heard that," Schilens said. "Ill let him think whatever he wants. I think he thinks that (playing) receiver is a little different than what it actually is. Hes unbelievably talented -- and he plays cornerback. So, I dont know." Coach Rex Ryan heard the comments from Cromartie, too, and wasnt pleased. "Im going to say this right now," Ryan said. "Listen to me when I tell you this: Im aware of what was said, OK? Im on top of it. Im telling you that right now. Im on top of it, and it will not be a problem. And thats all that Im going to say about the whole thing." It was clearly an attempt by Ryan to defuse the first sign of tension in the locker room -- something that derailed the team last season. Meanwhile, Cromartie walked past reporters and told the teams media relations staff that he would talk Thursday. Schilens said he hasnt personally talked to Cromartie about his comments. "Well address it on the football field," he said. "I kind of thought it was a joke, but I guess he said it and thats how he feels, so its my job to I guess fix that situation, so well see what goes on in practice. Hes entitled to think whatever he wants." Rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill, the teams second-round draft pick, wasnt offended -- even if Cromartie thinks he might be better than him at what he does for a living. "Oh, no. I mean, I wouldnt be upset," Hill said. "Im just trying to be Stephen Hill and trying to stay in my place." But that place might actually be the No. 2 spot, contrary to what Cromartie thinks. Hill has been impressive throughout training camp, showing some speed and good hands during the first week. The team is counting on him to make an immediate impact this season. "Right now, I always feel like Im the best receiver on the team," Hill said. "Of course, Santonio is the veteran, but as a wide receiver, you always want to be the best, and thats how I feel." New York has 12 wide receivers in camp -- not counting Laveranues Coles, whos working as an intern with the scouting department -- with a combined 441 career NFL catches. The alarming thing, however, is that Holmes has 338 of them, with Schilens a distant second with 72. Jeremy Kerley (29) and Patrick Turner (10) are the only other players with at least one NFL catch, leaving the other eight combining for zero. Add the inexperience with the injuries, and Mark Sanchez and the rrest of the quarterbacks dont have many guys to throw to at the position.dddddddddddd "I think were all right," Schilens said. "I think a few guys are a little nicked up here and there. Once everyone gets back, I think well be fine. I think we have a lot to learn, but I mean, we have enough experience in enough areas and we know what were doing with the guys that are out there. "Im not that worried about it, to be honest." Offensive co-ordinator Tony Sparano preferred to not get into much of what Cromartie said, but seemed to like the cornerbacks moxie. "Ive said this before: Im just pleased that Cro feels like he can help," Sparano said. "Ive got to go against the guy and I know his ball skills. I know he can run and those things. Hes a pretty confident player and hes got some swagger. Players with swagger, well put them out there in the huddle, if necessary." And, in the Jets case, of course, it might be. New York finished with just four healthy players -- Hill, Turner, Dexter Jackson and Raymond Webber -- at the position Wednesday. Ryan is disappointed that many of the receivers came into camp not in tip-top shape, which has led to several "soft-tissue injuries." Even Holmes was held out of 2-minute drills near the end of practice because he, too, had a "soft-tissue injury. But Ryan later said -- through a team spokesman -- that his comments about the wide receiver group didnt apply to Holmes. Schilens (groin) and Kerley (knee) are among the walking wounded. "Part of it is tempo, but part of it is the responsibility of the guys," Ryan said. "You have to be in shape. You have to take care of your bodies. Thats frustrating." With the rash of hamstring and groin tweaks during the first week of camp, Ryan has even adjusted the start time of practice by giving the players an extra 10 minutes of stretching to try to prevent further injuries. But, if this keeps up, Cromartie actually might have to step in and work a bit more on offence. So far, he has been in on one play at wide receiver: a go-route a few days ago. Still, Schilens thinks Cromartie might not totally understand what it takes to play the position in the NFL. "Everyone knows that Cro is unbelievably athletically gifted, very fast," he said. "Hes a great athlete, but Ive played with a lot of fast receivers. Playing receiver is more about just being fast. Ill leave it at that." NOTES: NT Sione Pouha left early in practice with a "nick" over his left eye that required "five or six stitches." He said he should be fine to practice Thursday. "I think Ill have to review my modeling career now because of the cosmetics, so well see what happens," Pouha said, a big white bandage covering the cut. ... RB-KR Joe McKnight sat out practice after needing intravenous fluids following a bout with food poisoning. ... OL Vladimir Ducasse, competing with Matt Slauson for the starting job at LG, injured his left knee when a teammate fell on him and left practice, but said hes fine. ... Rookie S Antonio Allen, a seventh-round pick, has three interceptions in camp, including one on a deep pass into the end zone thrown by Tim Tebow on Wednesday. ' ' '
