Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork. Patrik Laine Jersey .com) - Four-time champion Novak Djokovic handled Milos Raonic, while Stan Wawrinka kept his hopes of a repeat Australian Open title alive by besting fifth-seeded Kei Nishikori in straight sets on Wednesday. The world No. 1 Djokovic dismissed the eighth-seeded Canadian star Raonic 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 6-2, while the fourth-seeded Wawrinka fired 20 aces and was broken just once in a 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6) quarterfinal victory over the U.S. Open runner-up Nishikori at Rod Laver Arena. The reigning Wimbledon champion Djokovic, who is now 5-0 versus Raonic, is seeking an eighth Grand Slam title. He captured three straight Aussie crowns from 2011-13. A five-set thriller was played between Wawrinka and Nishikori at last years U.S. Open, and it was Nishikori who survived the 4-hour, 15-minute marathon. The evenly-matched opponents were on the court for less than half that in this one. The defending champ dominated the first set and did not face a break point until he was serving out the second ahead 5-4. Nishikori had three chances at pulling even, but Wawrinkas overpowering serve closed it out. Nishikori finally earned a break early in the third, but Wawrinka countered with one of his own at love. Three aces early in the tiebreak helped Wawrinka jump out to a healthy 6-1 lead. After staving off five match points, Nishikori hit a drop shot that fell into the net, and Wawrinka finished him off with another big ace. Wawrinka should have his hands full with Djokovic in the semis, but the Swiss star did upset the Serbian great in five sets in the quarterfinals at last years Aussie. Tucker Poolman Jersey .

"You bet," Troop told reporters Thursday during a tour of the construction site. "Were right on track." The CFLs Hamilton Tiger-Cats are slated to move into the $145.7-million state-of-the-art facility on June 30, 2014. "We started it with that in mind and were right on track," said Troop, who heads up the organizing committee for the 2015 Pan Am Games. The stadium, which will host all 32 mens and womens soccer games at the Pan Ams, is being built on a 5.45-hectare parcel of land where the historic Ivor Wynne Stadium once stood. Bratina said if there are things that arent completed by June, they will be minor and wont threaten the scheduled opening. "There may be some washrooms that need painting or something like that," Bratina said. "With several months to go and assurances from contractors were looking good, Im sure it will be minor cosmetics that may be left over. "But certainly I think by the end of June well be playing football and soccer in this stadium." Hamilton will want to avoid the issues Winnipeg had with its new stadium, which was scheduled to open for the 2012 CFL season but didnt see any football until 2013 due to construction delays. The Pam Am Games organizing committee says the stadium is more than 46 per cent complete and "progressing on time and on budget." The structural steel frame is roughly 96 per cent done while more than 80 per cent of the high voltage electrical work has been finished. The committee says pre-cast concrete installation (over structural steel frame ) is 22 per cent done, more than half of the underground mechanical and electrical work is complete, masonry block installation on the west and south sides has begun, steel decks for pedestrian areas are more than 90 per cent finished and foundation work is also complete. Pre-cast concrete will be complete early in the new year, the organizing committeee said, while seating and turf installation will happen in the spring. Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey. The stadium will feature two tiers of seats on both sides of the field with an initial seating capacity of 22,500. But that could expand to 40,000 seats for major events like the Grey Cup. It will meet all the technical requirements of both the CFL and FIFA, soccers governing body. The new field has shifted 90 degrees to a north-south axis from Ivor Wynnes east-west format. The move is designed to minimize the effect of the sun on athletes and reduce wind inside the facility. "You think in terms of the old Ivor Wynne and you come here and start realizing whats being built here is quite an impressive facility," Troop said. "You can see the size and height and the nature of whats going to be here and your mind quickly wanders to what its going to be like when youve got the championship soccer games during the Pan Am Games." It will have a seating capacity of roughly 24,000 for Ticats home games and also feature 700 club seats, 400 group sales suites seats, 30 VIP suites, six elevators, larger seats, updated press and broadcasting facilities and concession stands on all levels. The stadium will be able to host professional and amateur sports competitions as well as cultural events. There will also be a public plaza in the south end. The federal government is footing $69.3 million of the bill. The city of Hamilton is paying $54.1 million with the province chipping in the remaining $22.3 million. Bratina understands people doubting the project will finish on time and on budget but said hes sensing a shift in public sentiment regarding the stadium. "Overriding that is actual pride in the building," he said. "Im hearing less concern and more,Wow. The stadium is located in a residential section of the city but Bratina says its a welcome addition to the neighbourhood. "The neighbours are all excited about it and some of them are even saying their property values have gone up so theres another conversation going on I dont think its as strongly oriented towards budgeting and time," he said.
