PARIS - Andy Murray clinched a spot in the ATP Finals on Thursday after beating Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets at the Paris Masters and then sent a message to his critics by scribbling bad year on a courtside television camera. Nike Air Max 90 Nere Uomo .Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., also kept his hopes of qualifying for the season-ending tournament alive with a 7-5, 7-6 (7) win over Spains Roberto Bautista Agut.Following a tumultuous year that saw him change coach and recover from a serious back injury, Murray booked his spot at the season-ending tournament in London by reaching the quarterfinals at the Palais Omnisports with a 6-3, 6-3 win over No. 9 seed Dimitrov.Before leaving the court, Murray signed bad year on a camera lens.It wasnt a jibe (at critics), its a bit of fun, he said about his autograph. I mean, people are going to ask me all the time why Ive had such a poor year by my standards. Youre allowed sometimes to say something in response to that. I dont tend to do that often, but, look, its been a hard year, a tough year, but it hasnt been a bad year.After missing last years season-ending tournament following surgery on his back, the eight-seeded Scot pushed hard to qualify for the indoor event for the seventh straight year, winning three titles over the past five weeks.Murray, who slipped from fourth in January to 12th in the rankings last month, reached the semifinals at the French Open then failed to defend its Wimbledon crown and had to wait until September to win his first title of the season at the Shenzhen Open in China.He split with coach Ivan Lendl in March and hired Amelie Mauresmo after Roland Garros.It could have been a lot worse, said Murray after contesting his 22nd match in five weeks. Coming back from surgery is not easy at all, and I learned that. The first few months of this year it was very difficult, and I had to dig deep at the end of this year in some ways to salvage the year, if you like. But its been a good year. Not been my best year, but I wouldve signed up for being in this position when I had the surgery last year, I think.The Scot was in control throughout against Dimitrov, losing only two points on his first serve as he took a measure of revenge following his loss to the Bulgarian player in the quarterfinals at the All England club this year.Already qualified for the finals, third-seeded Stan Wawrinka failed to serve out the match before losing a 6-7 (2), 7-5, 7-6 (3) to Kevin Anderson in a match lasting nearly three hours as the hard-hitting South-African rallied to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time.I should have won, said Wawrinka, who has been hampered by a virus this week and coughed a lot during his press conference. In the end, I made stupid mistakes, but Im not panicking. Im still Top 4 in the world and I have a Masters to play, a Davis Cup final on clay, which will be totally different from usual tournaments.Since his quarterfinals exit at the U.S. Open, Wawrinka has won only two matches and will travel to London with his form in question. Wawrinka will also be teaming up with his Switzerlands teammate Roger Federer in the Davis Cup final against France from Nov. 21-23 in Lille.This year I had ups and downs that were very high or very low, added the Australian Open champion, who was two points from the match when leading 5-4, 30-0 in the decider. But I wouldnt change anything compared to any other year of my career. I can still play well in the Masters, win the Davis Cup, and the year will be fabulous.Anderson, who hit 18 aces against Wawrinka, will next face Tomas Berdych, who stayed on course for qualifying for the finals for the fifth straight year by beating Feliciano Lopez 7-5, 6-3. Fourth-seeded David Ferrer and No. 6 seed Kei Nishikori also kept alive their hopes of making it to London by defeating Fernando Verdasco and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga respectively. Nike Air Max 90 EM Uomo . According to the Washington Post, the Washington Capitals placed Green on the long-term injured list on Thursday meaning he wont be back in the lineup before February 1st. Nike Air Max 90 Bianche donne . Rafael Marquez, Andres Guardado and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez scored in a 10-minute span in the second half, dooming a talented Croatia side to elimination from the group stage.Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - In his first NHL start not far from his hometown, Louis Domingue shook off a poor start to help the Arizona Coyotes top the Montreal Canadiens, 3-2, on Sunday. After allowing two goals in the first five minutes, Domingue, a native of Quebec, finished with 18 saves as Arizona improved to 2-3-2 on its ongoing eight-game road trip. I was told last night Id be playing getting into the hotel, said Domingue. I had at least 30 people here, and others were watching on television. Im really lucky to play my first game here in Montreal. Lauri Korpikoski scored two goals, and Oliver Ekman-Larsson also lit the lamp for the Coyotes. Montreal had its five-game winning streak snapped, the last two of which were shutouts from starting goalie Carey Price, who had the day off. Dustin Tokarski allowed three goals on 32 shots. Both Canadiens goals came courtesy of Alex Galchenyuk. With less than two minutes to play in the second period, Arizona finally broke through on the power play. Martin Erats shot was deflected out of midair by Korpikoski in front of the net, and video review confirmed it was a legal deflection below the crossbar. Arizona only needed 32 seconds in the third period to tie the game. Ekman- Larssons shot from a bad angle along the boards found its way pastt Tokarski for the equalizer. Nike Air Max 90 Fluorescenti Uomo. Tokarski was good for part of the game, said Canadiens coach Michel Therrien. Im sure hed like to see the second goal again. Korpikoski was credited with his second power-play goal of the game three minutes later when his attempted cross-ice pass to Ekman-Larsson was kicked into the net by Alexei Emelin. The Canadiens were limited to five shots in both the second and third periods. A day after allowing seven goals to Ottawa, Arizona got off to another poor start. Just 75 seconds into the game, Galchenyuk carried the puck from the boards to the slot and wristed a shot by Domingue for the quick 1-0 lead. A few minutes later, Galchenyuk struck again for his 15th goal of the season right after the Coyotes killed a penalty. Montreal continued cycling the puck down low before David Desharnais found Galchenyuk in the slot to redirect the puck into the net. Game Notes Arizona had not won in Montreal since Oct. 28, 1996, its first season after relocating from Winnipeg ... Montreals Max Pacioretty and Arizonas Sam Gagner lost two-game goal streaks ... The Coyotes are now 1-19-2 when trailing after two periods with both wins coming on the current road trip ... The Canadiens were 20-1-1 when scoring the first goal. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
