The American broke twice in the second set before Raonic came through in the third. It also illustrates how Federer (74.2% and 41.4% respectively, in the same time period) might not have it all his own way tonight, despite still being the better player by some distance.
Every team is hard at this stage, but we face this tie with serenity and tranquillity. "You never know what's best, whether it's better to face a team now or in a semifinal", he said. The Catalonians are unbeaten in the La Liga and Amor was outspoken of where his team stands at the moment, he said, "We are doing well In La Liga, where we're in a good position, we're in the cup final on April 21".
An ill-advised flurry of punches in the fourth round seemed to signal Fabricio's final attempt at winning the fight before the inevitable doctor's stoppage and sure enough, when Volkov was able to counter the result was devastating. Werdum stands again to drop down a few shots, but goes back into full guard. Werdum then beautifully takes the back and goes for an armbar, but Volkov escapes nicely.
N'Golo Kante remains a potent force-although he has not been quite as impressive this season as he was while winning the league with Chelsea and Leicester City in the previous two campaigns. Aaron Ramsey recovered from a horrific leg injury and while the player has often not lived up to the billing of being the wonderkid he was touted to be, the midfielder has always been prolific for Arsenal , with his desire to venture up the field a boon, but also a bane at time for the club.
While the Colts signed Oakland Raiders free agent Denico Autry to bolster their pass rush already, defensive coordinator Matt Ebeflus could still use another impact pass rusher or two (maybe three) to generate more consistent pass pressure.

The comment was made after Ireland beat England on St Patrick's Day previous year - and a video surfaced this week ahead of the showdown in London between the two sides. "It' part of our game that we need to improve and we're working hard on the detail". England head coach Jones unreservedly apologised for the offensive comments made at a sponsor event last July.
Everton had not won away from home in the league since December 13 and prolong Stoke's run of seven games without a victory, leaving them second from bottom and now three points from safety. West Brom have won just one league match since Pardew took charge in November, leading to increased media speculation about the Englishman's future at the Hawthorns.
Davis played National Basketball Association with the Celtics, Magic and Clippers and at LSU in college. Now he's looking at some jail time after he was arrested with over 126 grams of weed in a Hampton Inn last month in Aberdeen, Maryland.
He is the first Egyptian player to score a Premier League hat-trick and capping a memorable evening, Salah was on hand to slam in his fourth in the 85th minute after Karnezis spilled Danny Ings' shot.

The Tottenham manager knows the FA Cup represents his only chance of a trophy this season and his team play at Swansea City in the quarter-finals on Saturday. Spurs now lie third in the league, and narrowly missed out on a berth in the Champions League quarters after losing out to Juventus in a thrilling last-16 tie.
On the other side of the coin, Everton look like they are going to be safe at the end of the season. A game against Everton , who have little to play for at this stage, provides a decent opportunity to grab a positive result. Everton had a makeshift midfield in that game but have both Gueye and Schneiderlin back in action this weekend. Everton spend big in the summer and in January, but their season has not reflected that at all.
It will be a battle of the 20-year-olds in the Indian Wells Masters final after Japanese sensation Naomi Osaka crushed world number one Simona Halep in straight sets. Kasatkina fired one ace, hit five double faults and broke Williams's serve seven times in the entertaining match. "Anyone who gets used to losses should give up on life", Williams said.

That leaves the Colts with nine selections in the April draft, including five in the first 67 picks. The top guys in the draft are (in no particular order) USC's Sam Darnold , UCLA's Josh Rosen , Wyoming's Josh Allen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield .
The irony that a dirty hit performed on Burfict could be the reason for receiving another possible suspension is a story of its own. According to Schefter, since the test in question happened on December 27 and after Burfict was already ruled out for the season, the 27-year-old will argue he could not have taken a substance with the aim of enhancing his performance when he wasn't even playing.
Harper's 3-pointer with 59 seconds remaining, his only basket of the game, put Auburn ahead 59-56, and he made the first of two free throws with 46 seconds remaining for a 60-56 lead. An injury that hobbled guard Joe Chealey hindered Charleston. Those guys do big-time games. The Tigers were far from themselves shooting-wise, as they made just 5 of 24 attempts from beyond the arc.
Indeed, Chelsea have gone on to win the competition on each of the last three occasions they've met Leicester in the FA Cup (1997, 2000 and 2012). The next Premier League clash with Tottenham is crucial to Chelsea's hopes of a top-four finish and qualifying for Europe's elite competition next term.
Morata still has plenty of time to work himself back into the national team setup before the World Cup and Lopetegui believes he has what it takes to make it to Russian Federation. "But now he is back, although it doesn't mean he has a spot guaranteed (for the World Cup)". Morata began strongly after he arrived at Chelsea in the summer but his form has deserted him and he has not scored since December 26.
Kamar Baldwin and Kelan Martin led the charge, as Martin had 27 points and nine rebounds, while Baldwin had 24 points, nine rebounds, and five assists.

Michael Heron QC of New Zealand has been appointed as the Judicial Commissioner for the hearing, which will be held via videoconference.

The Cardinals released Mathieu in order to trim his $14.1m cap hit for 2018 , after he declined to take a pay cut. Maybe Mathieu's signing with the Texans will jump-start the market for players like former Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro, who will not return in New Orleans.
