SHANGHAI, China -- Canadas Milos Raonic has been eliminated from the Shanghai Masters after losing 7-6 (2), 6-4 to Switzerlands Antworten

SHANGHAI, China -- Canadas Milos Raonic has been eliminated from the Shanghai Masters after losing 7-6 (2), 6-4 to Switzerlands Stanislas Wawrinka in the third round. Cheap Air Max 97 Nz Shoes . The 10th-ranked player from Thornhill, Ont., was coming off two straight final appearances, winning in Thailand before losing the final in Tokyo last week. Meanwhile, Roger Federers chances of qualifying for the ATP Tour Finals took a hit Thursday when he lost in three sets to Gael Monfils, the latest early-round loss for the 17-time Grand Slam champion. Monfils beat the former No. 1-ranked Federer 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3 in the third round, extending the Swiss stars recent slide. Defending champion Novak Djokovic and top-ranked Rafael Nadal, meanwhile, moved into the quarter-finals with straight-set wins. Djokovic beat Italys Fabio Fognini 6-3, 6-3, while Nadal rallied from 5-2 down in the second-set tiebreaker to down Argentinas Carlos Berlocq 6-1, 7-6 (5). Two of the tournaments other top seeded players were ousted: No. 3 David Ferrer lost to Florian Mayer 6-4, 6-3, and No. 4 Tomas Berdych was ousted by Nicolas Almagro 6-7 (6), 6-3, 7-6 (4). Federer, who has slipped to No. 7 in the rankings, was playing for the first time since losing in the fourth round of the U.S. Open. He was in need of a strong showing in Shanghai to secure a berth in the elite season-ending ATP Tour Finals in London -- a tournament he played every year since 2002. Federer is currently seventh in the standings, with only a slight lead over several other players vying to get into the eight-man field in London. He plans to play in Basel and Paris in hopes of making it into the Nov. 4-11 tournament. Federer fell to a player ranked outside the top 40 for the fourth time in his last six matches. He came into the match with a 6-1 record against Monfils, who returned to the tour recently after an injury layoff. Federer remained upbeat despite the loss -- and his subsequent defeat in doubles with Chinese partner Zhang Ze. He said the most important thing was not to worry about every setback. "Its pretty simple: You just keep on working hard, make sure that you get back on winning ways, then you become confident again, sort of get there," Federer said. "Monfils is a quality player, like some others," he said. "I lost some other matches this year because I couldnt really perform at 100 per cent. Probably shouldnt have played. But I dont really care having to explain some losses from time to time." As has been his problem in recent months, Federer struggled to find consistency, hitting 36 unforced errors, with many coming at critical points in the match. Still, he looked to have a chance to pull it out after fighting back from a break down in the second set. On Monfils serve in the next game, Federer hit an overhead smash to get a break point and then converted with a deeply angled crosscourt winner, pumping his fist as the decidedly pro-Federer crowd roared. But Federer was broken again early in the third set and couldnt muster another comeback. He had two more break chances in the seventh game, but couldnt convert either, even with Monfils looking spent, bending over to catch his breath after long rallies. Monfils, whos now ranked 42nd but has been as high as No. 7, said that even though Federer has not been as dominant as he used to be, with the likes of Djokovic, Nadal and Andy Murray contending for the majors, hes still no pushover. "A lot of people say, like, its not the same Rog because he got two other great players with him, Novak and Rafa. A third one plays also very good, Andy," he said. "But when hes on the court, hes still Roger. He can rip it from anywhere. He can do stuff that not many player can do." Monfils did notice, however, a slight dip in Federers game. "I think he miss a little bit more than he used to," he said. "I know he will try and go for his shot, but maybe he is a bit less confident." Djokovic, who plays Monfils next, said although Federers form has dropped this season, it would be a mistake to write him off. "Hes 17-time Grand Slam winner, one of the best players in the history of the game. If he says hes going to play better, work better, its definitely worth listening if he says it that way," he said. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Juan Martin del Potro also advanced to the quarterfinals, strengthening their bids to qualify for the ATP Finals. Tsonga, one of several players chasing Federer, defeated Japans Kei Nishikori, 7-6 (5), 6-0, and del Potro moved through when Tommy Haas withdrew before their match with a back injury.

The Mercedes duo of three-time Canadian Grand Prix champion Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg has won all six races to start the season, finishing one-two in the last five. .Y. - Everyone expected Clayton Kershaw to pitch a shutout, and he did — a unanimous choice for the NL Cy Young Award.With the Toronto Raptors celebrating their 20th anniversary season in 2014-15, Josh Lewenberg and take a look back at the franchises first two decades with weekly Top Five lists, counting down the standout and signature players and moments in team history. Raptors Top Five: Best wing players 5. Anthony Parker (2006-09) Raptor stats (3 seasons): 11.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 steals, 46% FG, 42% 3P, 235 games played/226 started Right off the top, a notable omission from this list is former NBA scoring champ Tracy McGrady, who very nearly snagged this spot. Make no mistake, McGrady had one of the best pro careers of any player to have ever put on a Raptors uniform, but thats not the benchmark here. If it were, Hakeem Olajuwon would top next weeks list of top Raptors bigs and, spoiler, he wont. McGrady played his last game as a Raptor before his 20th birthday and didnt make a significant impact until his third and final season with the club, helping lead them to their first-ever playoff berth while looking an awful lot like the superstar he would soon become in Orlando. Good, but not enough to top Parker, who was a consistent - and some would say undervalued - contributor for three full seasons early in his 30s. The versatile, guard-forward was one of Bryan Colangelos first and better finds, plucking him out of the Israeli league just in time to play an integral role for the 2006-07 division-winning club. Parker was an iron man during his tenure in Toronto, missing just 11 games in three years while logging over 32 minutes per contest in each season, shooting an efficient 42 per cent from three-point range and often defending the oppositions best perimeter player. Quietly dependable and always a consummate professional, Parker gets the nod here. Did you know?: Two of Parkers three years in Toronto (2006-07, 2007-08) rank among the franchises six best single-season effective field goal percentages, thanks in large part to his efficient three-point shooting. Jose Calderon and Amir Johnson account for the other four. 4. Doug Christie (1996-2000) Raptor stats (5 seasons): 14.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.1 steals, 41% FG, 36% 3P, 314 games played/299 started In the same mold as Parker, Christie was an underrated, do-it-all fixture for the first quarter of the franchises existence. Arriving in a trade midway through the Raptors inaugural season, Christie spent his prime in Toronto, where he helped bridge the gap between the Damon Stoudamire and Vince Carter eras. For a couple seasons, prior to Vinsanity, it looked like he may have been nothing more than a good player on a horrendously bad team, but his true value was felt when he shifted back to his natural role as a complimentary piece next to Carter on the Raptors first ever playoff team. Christie was a Swiss Army knife for them that season, playing and defending three positions and even starting playoff games at point guard. Not only was he the teams best perimeter defender, but he was also one the top stoppers in the league at his position. He started every game he played, logging at least 31 minutes a night in each of his four full seasons before he was sent to Sacramento for Corliss Williamson. Did you know?: Christie is the Raptors all-time leader in steals (664), steals per game (2.1) and steal percentage (3.2) 3. Morris Peterson (2000-07) Raptor stats (7 seasons): 12.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 42% FG, 37% 3P, 542 games played/364 started In 2000, the Raptors transitioned from the traded Christie to Peterson, their first-round draft pick that summer. Coming off a national championship at Michigan State, Peterson was entrusted right away and played an immediate role on one of the best teams in club history, a team that was one shot away from the conference finals. With Carter hurt the following season, Peterson - along with Alvin Williams and Antonio Davis - shouldered the load on a team that fought their way into the playoffs and nearly knocked off the favoured Pistons. It didnt take long foor him to find his niche in the NBA, as one of the leagues more reliable three-and-D players, he would spot up in the corner at one end and work his tail off on the other. Cheap Air Max 97 Nz Sale. . His circus shots, work ethic and dependability made him an instant fan favourite, but his importance to the franchise is in his longevity. Peterson is the only Raptor to have played for the organizations two most iconic teams (prior to last seasons renaissance, that is) - a member of the playoff series-winning club in 2000-01 and the 2006-07 division champs. Did you know?: Peterson owns the franchises iron man streak, appearing in 371 consecutive games. He played all 82 games in four straight seasons. 2. DeMar DeRozan (2009-present) Raptor stats (5 seasons): 16.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.9 steals, 45% FG, 27% 3P, 383 games played/371 started Theres been a lot written about DeRozan in this space - what hes been able to accomplish, coming into the NBA with little more than raw athleticism and playing for a series of bad teams - all of it a credit to his exceptional work ethic. A true self-made all-star, who at the age of 25-years-old, is still adding to his game and getting better. So, Ill leave it at this...When the Raptors took their training camp to Vancouver this fall, a fair-weather reporter asked DeRozan if he feels hes following in Vince Carters footsteps. If he cared to put as little effort into the answer as the reporter did in the question he could have easily shrugged it off, said Yeah, sure and moved on. His response: I hope to leave a legacy of my own. Obviously, Vince started off here and put the city on the map. My goal is to continue and have my own legacy as DeMar DeRozan and not follow what Vince Carter did. Well said. Did you know?: DeRozan set a career-high with 313 assists last season, 99 more than the year prior, his previous career-best. He recorded five or more assists in 27 games after doing so 12 times in 2012-13 and five times total in his first three NBA seasons. 1. Vince Carter (1998-2004) Raptor stats (7 seasons): 23.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks, 45% FG, 38% 3P, 403 games played/401 started Carter remains the most controversial figure in franchise history. Hes also its best player - bitterness aside, its hard to debate that. His legacy is somewhat tarnished by his ugly break-up with the team, his admissions of dogging it and the less-than a kings ransom they got back in return. Only recently, as his (possible) Hall-of-Fame career comes to a close, has the city started to forgive. That said, he meant everything to a young franchise that was still without an identity when he was drafted ahead of the lockout shortened 1998-99 campaign. You cant take that away from him. Its become something of a cliche (see DeRozans quote above), but yes, he put Toronto on the basketball map in a way that the team is only recently beginning to replicate. He was marketable, he was dynamic and captivating, he was must-see television. On a nightly basis, he would do something jaw dropping and, evident in the stat youll see below, that translated to immediate team success. Did you know?: Carters name is all over the Raptors record book, but perhaps most impressively, Carter is responsible for the teams two highest single-season win share totals (an estimate of the number of wins contributed by a player); 2000-01 (12.9) and 1999-00 (11.8), the franchises first two playoff appearances. He finished sixth and seventh in the NBA, respectively, in that category during those seasons. The only players ahead of him both years: Shaquille ONeal, Karl Malone, Tim Duncan. Honourable mentions: Tracy McGrady (1997-2000), Jalen Rose (2003-06), Tracy Murray (1995-96, 2001-02), Walt Williams (1996-98), Dell Curry (1999-2002) Expert picks: Jack Armstrong 1. Vince Carter 2.
