Stamps release Armour
The Calgary Stampeders have released veteran linebacker JoJuan Armour because of on-field incidents during training camp.
Armour, 32, played all 18 games for the Stamps last season, including the West final and Grey Cup.
The Calgary Sun has reported that Armour threw receiver Jeremaine Copeland to the ground during Friday’s practice.
The Stampeders travel to Regina where they will play the Saskatchewan Roughriders in their second and final pre-season game.
Wozniak and Dancevic ousted at Wimbledon
WIMBLEDON, England — Canadians Aleksandra Wozniak and Frank Dancevic were ousted from Wimbledon on Monday, failing to build on their success at the Eastbourne tune-up event last week
Dancevic, a finalist at Eastbourne, lost 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-3 to Belgian Steve Darcis in the first round of men’s singles Monday.
Wozniak, the 23rd seed from Blainville, Que., who made the semifinals at Eastbourne, lost 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 to the 43rd-ranked Francesca Schiavone.
“My opponent played some great tennis, she was much fresher than me today,” said Wozniak.
“I did the best with what I had.” It was a bitter disappointment for the 21-year-old Canadian, who beat French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova and defending Wimbledon semifinalist Jie Zheng last week. “It’s tough to lose first round at Wimbledon,” said Wozniak. “I had a great preparation and some wins going into this week.”
The 92nd-ranked Dancevic, a native of Niagara Falls, Ont., couldn’t find his form Monday, a year after upsetting 2002 finalist David Nalbandian in the opening round.
The early exits of Dancevic and Wozniak leaves Stephanie Dubois of Laval, Que., the lone Canadian left in the singles draw. She faces Sara Errani of Italy today. Toronto’s Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic open defence of their men’s doubles title today against Simone Bolelli and Andreas Seppi of Italy.
