ATLANTA -- Top-seeded John Isner avoided an upset in his Atlanta Open title defence Thursday night, rallying for a 4-6, 7-6 (5), 7-5 victory over wild-card entry Robby Ginepri in the second round. Mike Pouncey Jersey . Trailing 5-4 in the third set, the 12th-ranked Isner fought off two match points and evened it at 5-5 with consecutive aces. The former University of Georgia star had his only service break of the match to go up 6-5 before firing the last four of his 30 aces to close out Ginepri, an Atlanta resident ranked 281st. Isners history of tight early matches in Atlanta continued. He began the match with 24 unforced errors in the first set to Ginepris six. "This is the fifth year of this tournament, and three times 7-5 in the third," he said. "Its not easy coming in and playing your first match on a hard court in a while. I honestly didnt want to play Robby because hes a good friend, and I knew one of us was going to lose." Earlier, Thiemo De Bakker pulled off the upset that Ginepri could not when the Dutch qualifier beat second-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa 6-4, 7-5 in match delayed 2 hours, 15 minutes by rain to advance to the quarterfinals. De Bakker retired from his final qualifying match because of a sore neck yet made the field as one of three "Lucky Losers" following the late withdrawals of Gaels Monfils, Richard Gasquet and Radek Stepanek. Ben Becker of Germany added an upset win, topping seventh-seeded Yen-hsun Lu of Taiwan 6-4, 6-3, and eighth seed Marinko Matosevic of Australia beat American Tim Smyczek 6-4, 7-5. Isner staved off a bigger upset bid than Anderson faced. He needed a second-set tiebreaker win to outlast Ginepri, a 31-year-old whose only ATP or Grand Slam win of the year in five prior matches came when he beat Sergiy Stakhovsky 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-0 in the first round. Last week, Ginepri lost a first round match in Challenger event. Isner won the tiebreaker 7-5 with an ace to push his career tiebreaker winning percentage to 64.5 per cent, second-best in tennis history to Roger Federers 64.8. Jermon Bushrod Jersey .ca. Hi Mr. Fraser, When I was watching the Heritage Classic in Vancouver there was a play midway through the third where Ottawa crashed the Canucks net and it came off its moorings. Kenny Stills Jersey . -- The Detroit Lions made it crystal clear to Golden Tate that he was their top target in free agency. http://www.shopdolphinsauthenticnfl.com/Youth-Andre-Branch-Elite-Jersey/ . UEFA said Wednesday that the champions of England and France only have to include five home-trained players in their 21-man squads next season instead of the expected eight. Only one of the five players needs to be trained by the club itself.In both the East and the West semifinals, the better team won. With Montreal, Jonathan Crompton did what he has done so successfully all year, moving the ball along while depending on others as much as himself - and that is a skill. If you have a quarterback too wrapped up in the all mighty I - as in, I want to do this I want to do that - then there is truly a chance youre going to get a quarterback that makes as many game changing mistakes as game changing plays. Johnathan Cromptons greatest asset may be an absence of ego. He is simply one of the guys on the field and part of the team, not the quarterback leading the team. I thought the Eastern semifinal game changed in the opening drive of the third quarter, when Montreal took the ball and drove the ball 78 yards on nine plays to increase their lead from 15-3 to 22-3, taking over five minutes off the clock in the process. Yet, it was the way they drove that changed the game as well. Driving with good, sound running plays on a Lions defence that is as good as any up front. Tom Higgins, Jeff Garcia, Ryan Dinwiddie and all on the offensive staff should be congratulated on the Allouttes turnaround. But offensive line coach Kris Sweet stands out after the play of his group on Sunday. Sweet is not everyones cup of tea as a coach because of his intensity and history in Edmonton, but he is excelling in Montreal. When you are starting your fourth running back in Brandon Rutley and your team rushes for 207 yards, you know everything came together up front throughout the game. Kevin Glenn had a tough day but in his defence, many quarterbacks have had tough days against Montreal - especially at McGill. Nonetheless going completing just 4 of 15 passes in the first half is a bad outing. The strength for Montreal as they return to Hamilton to avenge their 29-15 Week 20 loss is the rationalization the reason they lost was due to the mistakes they made and not so much what Hamilton did. And that is the right approach to have because it puts in the mind of the team that if we control what we can to control, we will win. Which is true, as long as long you play that way. The sequence of football success is always the same. First, avoid. Avoid game changing mistakes, turnovers, penalties and mental errors . Second, create. Make things happen as individuals and groups of individuals. Execute the basics and fundamentals first and then make the spectacular happen. Thhird is force. Xavien Howard Jersey. Force the opponent into mistakes by creating everything theyre trying to avoid. Good teams have a force my will on you mentality and, if sustained long enough and with enough intensity, it will happen. Fourth, capitalize. If your opponent makes a mistake, especially if it is unforced, then capitalize on that mistake. Sudden change is extremely significant and when sudden change happens for you, you need sevens to appear as fast as possible. If you can make those four things happen, you will have success. Edmonton followed that recipe as well as any team in the regular season, but entered the post-season limping at quarterback. I have to agree with the masses that if Darian Durant was 100 per cent, the final of 18-10 for Edmonton may have been 18-10 for Saskatchewan. Edmonton, despite all the turnover assistance could not put Saskatchewan away. And based on all that assistance, they should have easily. This week will be about a foot, Mike Reillys foot to be exact. Is it better is it worse, what is it saying, how is it feeling, can he practice on it? Bottom line is, over the next six days it will heal a bit, nothing so dramatic that Reilly will be running again at top speed, but he should be better. Calgary caught a break in the broken bone of the Edmonton quarterback and they know it. I expect Mike Reilly to play but I dont think he will be 100 per cent. There were a lot of game changing moments in the West semifinal but when it was all over, the Saskatchewan Roughriders ran for 47 yards while Edmonton rushed for 150. The lack of a good running game put too much pressure on the quarterbacks, which allowed the Eskimos to create pressure with a blitzing defence. In both the East and West finals, there will be big advantages for home teams; physically rested and mentally sharp. For the visiting teams, both will come into their games playing tough and battle tested. There is little conclusive statistical evidence as to which previous experience is more advantageous, mostly because there are benefits to both. Eventually, it all comes back to avoid, create, force and capitalize. Four of the most important words for football player and in any football game. If theyre evident on Sunday for your team, then youre on your way to Vancouver for the 102nd Grey Cup. If not, time to warm up the TV. The former is much more gratifying than the later, and I speak from experience.
