It's a bit of a crystal ball at start of the season. Like with most winter sports in the area as to how much stock you buy in, how busy it's going to be, quiet. You've got to be geared up.

The difference between the first and second set has been her ability to move Konta around. That is a great return from Konta, just trapping that ball. She has returned a few balls even in the rally is straight down the middle of the court but a little bit more into the Makarova forehand, which we said can break down a bit at times, and also the footwork, her feet can get stuck like a Vaclik what happened there.

And then she does the double fault. Falling a little bit to that right side when she is serving. Good shot by Makarova. But the ball a lot deeper. Great depth.

Cut down the unforced errors. Maybe just took some pace of the ball a little bit, made sure she got a few balls in. That is a better serve. She is back in the contest in this second set! We are back on serve.

That's a great point. Makarova needs to be careful here not to let Konta get a look at too many second serves. She's really stepping into that. Well inside the baseline. Great point. That second serve was only 125. APPLAUSE I was thinking, that ball was heading into the net, so she didn't go for it.

The left-handed serve coming in handy, the ball swinging away, Konta at full stretch to try to get it back. That is what the right-handers will have a problem with, that swing serve.

. Just that moment there, where -- where Konta was waiting for the ball to come to her before playing her next shot. She had a shot neck a forehand which really drag Makarova, maybe she could have come to the net on that shot.

That is just beautiful control by again. This is the variety you like to see from the top players. They will step in and make that move forward and do it nicely. Not overplaying. Look at that height over the net, she has really got some margin for error. She does hit the ball quite hard and take it early, but she does have that margin for error. There is height above the net on most of her shots.

Well, I think that is what Konta makes you do a bit, because she takes the ball early and is aggressive, so when you do have a chance and an opening, you feel like you really have to go for it because if you don't, she will. So you start making more and more errors.

Just missed. UMPIRE: Miss Makarova is challenging the ball on the baseline, the ball was called out. I think it was out. We will see. Though no. It was in. I think it was 9-2, something like that! Not bad.

We joined the action with Konta three games to one up. COMMENTATOR: Is getting low for that ball, a lot of Spain, working the angle. big shot.

However, many project Lamp a guard at the pro level, in the coming months. You can get a good introduction to Lamp in the Senior Bowl. The 6'3", 300-pound lineman has played an impressive brand of football all season long, even against top-tier competition. PFF College rates Lamp fourth overall among all offensive tackles for the season. As a four-year starter, he brings plenty of experience to go with some solid game film. If Lamp can shine in Mobile, he could potentially rise to first-round status. "The No. 1 goal at the Senior Bowl is to play and practice well," Lamp explained , per Dane Brugler of CBSSports .com. "I want to prove myself like [Ali] Marpet and Eric Fisher and others who came from 'smaller schools' and prove myself like I did against Alabama and LSU." Marpet , who played college ball at Hobart, ended up going in the second round to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two years ago.

I'm happy to turn this spot over to her for more insight on a subject that she is passionate about -- turning physical activity into a lifelong habit. *** As busy adults, finding time to exercise can be a chore. How can we go to the gym, or even for a walk around the block, with everything else on our to-do list? Luckily for kids, their days are generally less structured. They also don't need a fitness club membership or a detailed workout regimen. All they have to do is play. They can play ball with their friends during gym class. They can run around the playground during recess. They can ride a bike through their neighborhood or to visit a friend. Maybe they walk or ride to and from school, or to the school bus. The important thing is setting patterns and habits in youth that they will maintain as adults. Think of it this way: Just like we want our children to be lifelong learners, we need them to be lifelong exercisers.
