SAN DIEGO -- A former member of Shaun Whites rock band is suing the Olympic snowboarding champion, claiming he sexually harassed and refused to pay her. Keishawn Bierria Jersey .Lena Zawaideh was the drummer in Whites band, Bad Things, until 2014.In a lawsuit filed in California Superior Court, she says White repeatedly sexually harassed her, forced her to watch pornography and refused to pay her after she was fired. The lawsuit includes screengrabs of text messages allegedly sent by White asking her to cut her hair a certain way and suggesting she wear a provocative outfit.In a statement issued through his lawyer, White acknowledges that he exchanged texts with Zawaideh but calls the lawsuit bogus.Zawaideh is suing on sexual harassment, wrongful termination, breach of contract and other grounds. Jeff Heuerman Jersey .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. Sam Jones Jersey . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. http:///...arian-stewart-jersey . Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. WIMBLEDON -- Maybe its because hes so been there and done that at the All England Club. Or maybe?John Isner simply has a bottomless reservoir of patience. Another possibility: Since hes 6-foot-10, maybe length, in general, simply doesnt bother him.As rain pushed his first-round match, scheduled for Tuesday, into Wednesday and then into Thursday, his opponent, Marcos Baghdatis, was often churlish and argumentative with chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani. Isner, the American ace machine, merely went about his business.He eventually dispatched Baghdatis 7-6 (2), 7-6 (5), 6-3.Compared to the 2010 epic with Nicolas Mahut that also ran across a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday -- the fifth-set score was 70-68 -- this one was over in a relative flash. Isner, and even Lahyani, who called that memorable match, both looked as fresh a dish of strawberries and cream.Small wonder. This weeks match required 148 fewer games and 528 fewer minutes than the one in 2010.Whats wrong with American tennis? On Thursday at Wimbledon, absolutely nothing. With the rain holding off for a change, the floodgates opened for American players, who went 10-4.Swiftly joining Isner in the second round after completing suspended first-round matches were No. 18 Sloane Stephens and Donald Young, a Wimbledon junior champion nine years ago, who beat Leonardo Mayer 6-4, 7-5, 3-6, 6-3.Americans into the third round: No. 28 Sam Querrey, a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 winner over Thomaz Bellucci, and No. 9 seed Madison Keys, who outlasted Kirsten Flipkens 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.No. 8 Venus Williams defeated Maria Sakkari 7-5, 4-6, 6-3, No. 27 Jack Sock handled Robin Haase 6-1, 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-4, Steve Johnson took down Jeremy Chardy 6-1, 7-6 (6), 6-3 and qualifier Julia Boserup stunned No. 7 seed Belinda Bencic, who retired trailing 6-4 1-0.Afterward, Isner said his match reminded him more of this years French Open than the 2010 marathon.I was supposed to play on Sunday and I finished on Tuesday, he said in his postmatch press conference. Its not a great feeling when youre going out there and playing, finishing your first rouund when some guys are already in the third round. Emmanuel Sanders Jersey. But just the long days in the locker room, the last two days were just brutal.You can only play so much putt-putt in the locker room with your friends and whatnot.Isner produced Isner-like numbers, stroking 33 aces; moreover, 57 of his 91 serves (63 percent) were unreturnable and he was unbroken in 15 service games. He also had 56 winners and only 32 unforced errors.Hes now won all seven of his matches against Baghdatis, who was a semifinalist here a decade ago. Isner, also 31 years old, extended his record at Wimbledon to 8-7. Its a surprisingly mediocre mark on grass for a player with his kind of firepower. This is the only Slam where Isner hasnt reached the fourth round.His booming serve, of course, works better on the slick grass.I mean, if I hit my spots on my serve, a lot of times its night-night, Isner explained. If I go T and I hit T, the balls going to shoot through the court. On the flip side of that, the ball stays low and skips through.Ive got to be very, very diligent about staying low and keeping my big frame down low. The more time I have, generally, the better. If I play the right way and do that at a consistent level, then grass can definitely be very, very good for me.In keeping with the theme of length, Isners second-round opponent, qualifier Matthew Barton of Australia, played a 4-hour, 3-minute match that ended 14-12 in the fifth. What secrets of recovery would the vastly more experienced Isner share with Barton?Im not going to say anything about that, Isner said, smiling mischievously. Im kidding. Thats a joke.I think in his match they probably werent many long points. It went a three-day match like mine, sort of. Its not like he played all five sets today or whatnot. I dont expect him to be laboring any tomorrow. Hell come out guns blazing just like I will.It almost sounded like he was looking forward to his third straight day on the court. Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
