WIMBLEDON -- Canadas Aleksandra Wozniak has qualified for the main draw at Wimbledon with a 6-4, 6-3 win over American Melanie Oudin. Kyle Lowry Jersey . Wozniak, from Blainville, Que., jumped out to a 3-0 lead on Thursday only to see Oudin draw level. The Canadian later broke Oudins serve to take the first set. The world No. 118 carried the momentum into the second set to qualify for her second consecutive Grand Slam main draw. "This match was important for me psychologically," Wozniak said. "I played well and I did what I had to do to qualify for Wimbledon. It feels good to play a lot of matches, it helps to polish my game." Wozniak joins No. 13 seed Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., and unseeded Sharon Fichman of Toronto in the womens draw. Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., (No. 8) and Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil (No. 31) are in the mens singles draw. The 26-year-old Wozniak also advanced to the main draw of the French Open, where she lost to Romanias Sorana Cirstea in the first round. Wozniak had lost her two previous meetings against Oudin. They were scheduled to play at the Bell Challenge in 2012, but Wozniak was unable to start the match because of a shoulder injury. She will now get at least three days off before her first-round match. The draw for the singles matches will be made Friday and first-round play is scheduled to begin Monday. Pospisil was originally unseeded but moved into the No. 31 spot when Nicolas Almagro of Spain withdrew because of a left foot injury. Almagro was given the No. 25 seed when the list of 32 seeded players was released earlier this week. Players below him all moved up one position except for Russias Dmitry Tursunov, who remained at No. 32. Tournament organizers consider player rankings and previous grass-court results over the last two years when determining the seeding, which is why Pospisil was given a higher seed than Tursunov. Torontos Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic are seeded third in the mens doubles draw. Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., did not qualify after dropping a 2-6, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 decision to Taiwans Jimmy Wang. Jodie Meeks Jersey . They find themselves trying to knock each other out in the Western Conference finals for the second straight year. The Blackhawks prevailed last year on their way to the Stanley Cup, and they have the early lead this time after taking the opener, 3-1. Marc Gasol Raptors Jersey . Granada goalkeeper Roberto Fernandez saved Morenos first two headers from corner kicks taken by Sergio Garcia, but the defender beat him on his third try after Garcia found Moreno unmarked at the near post in the 78th minute.LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland -- Anna Fenninger of Austria was faster than Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany in a downhill training session Monday which began their duel for major World Cup honours this week.
