MASON, Ohio -- Milos Raonic advanced to the third round of the Western & Southern Open on the same day fellow Canadians Vasek Pospisil and Eugenie Bouchard were knocked out. Antonio Garcia Youth Jersey . The 12th-seeded Raonic beat Janko Tipsarevic in straight sets, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on Wednesday. Its his third win in as many tries over Tipsarevic, and comes a day after he struggled somewhat in a three-set first-round match over American Jack Sock. "I played better than yesterday," Raonic said. "I was better from the baseline and created more opportunities for myself. It was a pretty clean match." Raonic will face American John Isner next. Isner won their only other match in the Toronto quarter-finals a year ago. "Isner will be tough, it will come down to a few points," Raonic said. "I have to serve well and keep the pressure on him in that sense. If I create opportunities I have to make the most of them and play as disciplined as possible." Raonic, a native of Thornhill, Ont., became the first Canadian man to be ranked in the top 10 in the world after reaching the final of the Rogers Cup in Montreal. He lost to Rafael Nadal after beating Pospisil in the semifinals. Pospisil, who rose to 40th in the world rankings after reaching the Rogers Cup semifinals, was upset Wednesday 7-5, 1-6, 7-6 (6) by Belgian qualifier David Goffin, whos ranked 80th. Pospisils prediction that he would have a tough time with Goffin proved to be correct, despite 13 aces and the Belgians nine double faults. He failed to convert on four match points. "It was a tough match with a lot of ups and downs," said Pospisil. "I didnt start great but I played better in the second set. Serving for the match and then in the tiebreak I played some shots too passively." Pospisil fell on a late break in the opening set but roared back to sweep the second. The third set was tight, with Pospisil grabbing a 6-5 lead on a break and moving into position to serve out victory. But the outcome was never secure as Goffin saved a match point in the next game and then forced Pospisil to salvage a break point before finally dropping to 6-6 on a forehand that went long. In the tiebreaker, Pospisil had three more match points and failed to convert on all of them. Goffin seized his opportunity with his first match point, converting it to send Pospisil out after nearly 2 1/2 hours. "He hit his best shot of the match on the last match point, too good," Pospisil said. "There are a lot of things I would have changed. But now I need to get some rest before the U.S. Open." Pospisil said he was feeling "a bit burnt out" and needs to sharpen some things in practice. "Im a little emotionally drained," he said. "Maybe its good to rest before the Open." Bouchard will get some rest after putting a scare into world No. 1 Serena Williams. Bouchard won the first set before Williams asserted herself in a 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory. Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli was knocked out of the tournament with her loss to Simona Halep in three excruciating sets that left Bartolis Achilles, shoulder, hips and back aching. After the match, the 28-year-old announced her retirement from tennis. "Its been a tough decision to take," said Bartoli, who won her first Grand Slam title less than two months ago. "I dont take this easily. I mean, Ive been a tennis player for a long time and I had a chance to make my biggest dream a reality. I felt I really, really pushed through the ultimate limits to make it happen. "But now I just cant do it anymore." Back on the mens side, the fourth-seeded Nadal defeated German qualifier Benjamin Becker 6-2, 6-2. Nadal has now won 11 straight on hard courts. "I should be very happy with the way that I played since the beginning," Nadal said. "Just for a few games, the serve was down a little bit. For the rest, I think I played a great match." Wimbledon champion Andy Murray had an easy time in his opening match at the tournament, which he has won twice. The second-seeded Murray needed only 69 minutes to beat Mikhail Youzhny 6-2, 6-3. Murray, who is also the defending U.S. Open champion, was coming off a third-round loss last week in Montreal, his first action since becoming the first British male to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936. Hes using the tournament in Cincinnati to get ready to defend his Open title. "He made more mistakes than I expected," Murray said. "I just want to play as many matches as I can. Its important to get a few matches in before New York. I didnt make too many errors and hit a high percentage of first serves." His volleys were erratic, something hell work on the rest of the week. "I just missed a couple," he said. "Hopefully, Ill get that going as the week goes on." Murray will play 36th-ranked Julien Benneteau in the third round. Top seed Novak Djokovic defeated Juan Monaco of Argentina, 7-5, 6-2 while Juan Martin del Potro took down Nikolay Davydenko 7-5, 7-5. Eleventh-seeded German Tommy Haas also advanced, beating No. 46 Spaniard Marcel Granollers, 6-4, 6-1. He earned a matchup with fifth-seeded and five-time tournament champion Roger Federer. Antonio Garcia Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. Derek Rivers Youth Jersey . -- With his team down 16 points in the second quarter and headed for another blowout loss at home, Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson yelled out to his players to keep shooting and keep fighting on defence. http://www.authenticpatriotsfanatic.com/c-94-patriots-deatrich-wise-jr-jersey.aspx . Argentina, who have yet to beat New Zealand in 17 meetings, rocked the All Blacks with an early converted try to backrower Juan Manuel Leguizamon and led 7-0 after five minutes. But Smiths double in the 23rd and 26th minutes - when Argentina was reduced to 14 men by the sin-binning of hooker Eusebio Guinazu - turned the tide of the match and set up New Zealands third straight Championship win.CLEVELAND -- The Detroit Tigers started out strong Thursday night. Nine innings later, they finished even stronger. After scoring four times in the first innings, the Tigers offence went into a slumber until the 11th when it broke through for seven runs in an 11-4 win over the Cleveland Indians. "It was a little bit of a dogfight," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "We jumped out to the early lead and felt pretty good about it and they fought their way all the way back. It became a battle to the end." Eugenio Suarezs two-run single and Victor Martinezs three-run homer highlighted the late eruption, which didnt seem like it would be necessary about four hours earlier. "I was just trying to survive," Martinez said. "I went up there like I always go, just trying to be a tough out and put a good swing on it." The Tigers sent 10 men to the plate in the first and 11 batted in the final inning. Cleveland chipped away against defending Cy Young winner Max Scherzer and tied the score against the Tigers bullpen in the seventh. Phil Coke (4-2) pitched 1 2-3 innings. Josh Tomlin (6-9) gave up five runs and three hits in one-third of an inning. Detroit, which holds the American Leagues second wild-card spot, won three of four in the crucial series to pull one game behind Kansas City in the AL Central. Cleveland is six games out in the division and five games back for a wild card. J.D. Martinezs three-run homer in the ninth off closer Cody Allen gave Detroit a 4-2 win Tuesday. "Two very good wins that weve had in the last three days," Ausmus said. "Two of the better ones I think weve had all year." Tomlin, who returned to the team Tuesday after being on the paternity list as his wife gave birth to their first child, issued a one-out walk to Rajai Davis in the 11th. Ian Kinslers blooper then fell between right fielder Tyler Holt and second baseman Jason Kipnis, and Holts throw to thirdd was late, allowing Kinsler to take second. Deatrich Wise Jr. Womens Jersey. Ezequiel Carrera was intentionally walked to load the bases before Suarez, who pinch-ran for Miguel Cabrera in the 10th, lined an 0-1 pitch to left. Martinez followed with his 29th homer, a line drive to right. Andrew Romine, who grounded out to start the inning, added a two-run single. Scherzer staggered through six innings, allowing three runs and throwing 124 pitches before being pulled. "Absolute physical grind for me," he said. "Didnt pitch efficiently, fell behind in counts. Battled as hard as I could. Pitched as deep as I could even when my pitch count ran up as high as it did." Michael Brantleys seventh-inning double tied the score. The Tigers scored in the first on Trevor Bauers wild pitch, Bryan Holadays two-run single and Davis RBI single. BARKING FOOT OF Torii Hunter didnt start after fouling a ball off his left foot in the first inning Wednesday. He struck out as a pinch-hitter in the sixth, but didnt stay in the game defensively. AWARD WINNER 1B/DH Victor Martinez was named the AL Player of the Month for August after batting .350 with six homers and a league-leading 30 RBIs. "Victor goes through periods when it looks like hes playing softball," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He goes up there and swings as hard as he can and he rarely misses. Thats not a good feeling." TRAINERS ROOM Tigers: C Alex Avila missed his second straight game after being hit in the mask by a foul ball Tuesday. "It was a little bit of a lingering side effect from the head shot, so were going to give him another day," manager Brad Ausmus said. UP NEXT Tigers: Detroit returns home Friday to begin a three-game interleague series against San Francisco, the first time the teams have met since the Giants swept the 2012 World Series. RHP Rick Porcello (15-9) starts for Detroit against RHP Jake Peavy (4-13).
