Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Czech Lucie Hradecka sent shockwaves on the first day of the Australian Open by ousting fifth seed Ana Ivanovic, 1-6, 6-3, 6-2, at Rod Laver Arena. The Serb Ivanovic, who was the runner-up to Maria Sharapova in 2008, suffered her earliest exit at a Grand Slam event since the French Open in 2011. She was a quarterfinalist here last year. I think the whole match I didnt really feel like myself out there, Ivanovic stated. It was really tough for me to find a rhythm a little bit. In the third set, I really felt like she raised her level. Hradecka, playing her first Grand Slam main draw since last years Australian Open, lost in qualifying at other three majors in 2014. The doubles specialist entered the week ranked 142nd in singles play. She has 18 doubles titles, but none in singles. In the first set I was so nervous, Hradecka said. I couldnt hit any balls in the court. When I went outside, I started to serve in the second set, I thought, Okay, it cannot be the worst. Lets play every point and lets see what will happen. Its the earliest exit by a top 5 seed since 2003 when then No. 3 Jennifer Capriati was ousted by Marlene Weingartner. Romanian Simona Halep, the No. 3 seed, topped Italian Karin Knapp, 6-3, 6-2. Its a fresh start for Halep, who began the 2015 season with her ninth career title at Shenzhen, but then withdrew from an event in Sydney due to illness. Another upset saw Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania beat No. 9 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany, 6-4, 0-6, 6-1. In other seeded action Monday, No. 21 Peng Shuai of China, beat Germanys Tatjana Maria, 6-4, 7-5; 22nd seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova defeated Evgeniya Rodina, 7-5, 6-1; Belgiums Yanina Wickmayer downed 23rd-seeded Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3; Frances Caroline Garcia upset No. 27 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia, 6-4, 6-2; Frances Kristina Mladenovic toppled No. 28 seed Sabine Lisicki of Germany, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2; and Germanys Julia Goerges upended 32nd seed Belinda Bencic of Switzerland, 6-2, 6-1.

"Its an outdoor sport, its a risky sport. We were able over the years to make it safer... we could make it (even) safer," said Walter Hofer, the ski jumping race director at the International Ski Federation (FIS). Spectacular crashes are fairly common in jumping. Three-times Olympic gold medallist Thomas Morgenstern of Austria has ended up in hospital twice in the last two months after crashes where he suffered a broken finger as well as face and head injuries. "The next goal must be to make safer helmets with higher standards. Maybe we can do something for the protection of the body," Hofer told reporters high up on the normal hill late on Monday night as women jumpers whistled by at 90 kph (60 mph) at the Sochi Olympics. "Whatever is available on the market we will try." Hofer noted that Alpine ski officials had spent a long time studying jackets that contain small air bags to help cushion the impact of falls. "When they get something up there we will use it. At the moment I am preparing to use some protection for certain parts of our body, mostly the backbone," he said. Tougher helmets will be introduced into Alpine skiing and ski jumping authorities want to adopt the same standards. In recent years the FIS has taken a series of sometimes unpopular steps it says will make the sport fairer and safer. The federation imposes minimum body mass index requirements to weed out jumpers which it says are too light. Jumpers have to wear body tight suits with low aerodynamics, much to the irritation of athletes such as four-times Olympic gold medallist Simon Ammann of Switzerland. New hills have been redesigned to make the in-run smoother, a development which some jumpers say make takeoffs harder. A complex new system to compensate skiers for wind conditions will be used at the Sochi Games for the first time. Hofer, who has been at FIS for 22 years, said he began trying to make the spoort safer some 20 years ago after he saw a series of bad falls.dddddddddddd "I started to talk to experts and they told me Are you crazy? If you make ski jumping safer nobody will watch. It isnt right," said the ebullient Austrian. "I would like to attract parents to deliver their children to our beloved sport in a way they know it is a sport where athletes are cared for." As well as improving safety, Hofer - who notes that "when you release an athlete at 100 km/h from the takeoff, you cant take him back - is particularly keen to address rapidly changing wind conditions that have wrecked many a competition. Headwinds help athletes soar further but if they are too strong they can produce dangerously long jumps. Conversely, tail winds cut flying distances. In the past, officials would either scrap competitions altogether or restart them halfway through to take into account changing winds, which Hofer said frustrated spectators. Jumpers used to be judged on distance and style. Under the new system, they now can also gain or be docked points to take wind conditions into account. The calculations are made by a series of computers linked to seven sensors along the in-run. "The athletes performance is removed from the influence of external conditions," said Hofer, pointing to a screen which showed the wind strength and direction from each sensor. The challenge for audiences is that the athlete who jumps the furthest does not always win. Alexander Pointner, head coach of the Austrian team, told Reuters that spectators should not have "to think What is this, that guy jumped so far but hes only fourth, whats that? Our sport should not be so difficult". Hofer has no intention of changing his mind. "Whatever makes ski jumping safer and fairer is worth it, even if sometimes you have to take something (away) from the transparency. People will understand sooner or later," he said. FIS is looking at whether it would be possible to shine a blue laser line on the snow to show the public exactly where a jumper has to land to take the lead, he added.

I lost some wight last year and went down to 176 lbs and was still considered overweight according to these things. Agree that this is a general tool that people cant take too seriously or use as their only source of information.
