MELBOURNE, Australia - Roger Federer will look back on it and wonder, just as he did on court, why he just watched as Andreas Seppi went down the line and ended his streak of reaching the Australian Open semifinals for 11 consecutive years. Chris Wormley Youth Jersey .The 17-time Grand Slam champion was facing match point against Seppi for the first time in their 11 head-to-head meetings, and had control of the rally when he hit a deep forehand into the corner and followed it to the net.The No. 46-ranked Seppi lunged to his right and stuck out his racket, more hopeful than confident, and guided the ball down the line. Federer let it go past, and glanced back to see it land inside the baseline, giving Seppi a 6-4, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (5) win and a spot in the fourth round.The way he hits it you think, This cant possibly land in. You kind of go and youre there and youre like, No, Im going to let it go, the second-seeded Federer said. As youre telling yourself that, you look behind you and you already know its done.Federer had reached the semifinals or better at Melbourne Park ever since winning the first of his four Australian titles in 2004. He hadnt been ousted before the fourth round here since 2001. That changed in an instant.I dont know. Ask him how he felt hitting it, Federer said. Its clearly a big blow because I actually hit my forehand pretty good.Seppi was euphoric, but acknowledged that the defining shot of the match was not a calculated winner.Yeah, was for sure a strange shot, the 30-year-old Italian said. At the beginning I thought I couldnt even reach the ball. Then, when I hit it, I didnt see it going there. I just saw when it bounced in.Was for sure one of the important shots of my life.Seppi had only advanced beyond the second round once at his nine previous trips to the Australian Open. He held his nerve despite some withering winners from Federer, who registered his 1,000th career match win earlier this month in Brisbane. Federer, uncharacteristically, let mini-breaks slip in both tiebreakers, had nine double-faults in the match and was unusually inconsistent.It just broke me to lose that second set. And actually the fourth, I should win it, too, Federer said. Just a brutal couple of sets to lose there. The end wasnt pretty.Seppi will get another appearance on Rod Laver Arena for his fourth-round match against Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios, who shrugged off concern over a nosebleed to beat Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 6-3, 7-6 (6), 6-1. Kyrgios beat then No. 1-ranked Rafael Nadal in the fourth round at Wimbledon last year.Nadal is still a contender in Australia after rebounding from his five-set, second-round win to beat No. 106-ranked Dudi Sella 6-1, 6-0, 7-5.The 14-time major winner is coming off a lengthy stint on the sidelines, and has been playing down his chances of going all the way again in Melbourne, where he won in 2009.Andy Murray hasnt had a match on the centre court at Melbourne yet this year, but it hasnt bothered the three-time finalist. He won in straights sets again, beating Joao Sousa 6-1, 6-1, 7-5 to set up a clash with No. 10 Grigor Dimitrov, who laboured through a five-set win over 2006 Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis.Seventh-seeded Tomas Berdych needed eight match points before beating Viktor Troicki 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 and will next play Bernard Tomic, who beat fellow Australian Sam Groth 6-4, 7-6 (8), 6-3.After having to fend off match points in her previous match, Maria Sharapova made sure it wasnt even close in the third round by beating No. 31 Zarina Diyas 6-1, 6-1 in 61 minutes. She next plays Peng Shuai and has a potential quarterfinal against No. 7 Eugenie Bouchard.The 20-year-old Canadian struggled through a scrappy opening set before recording a 7-5, 6-0 third-round win over Caroline Garcia that featured 10 breaks of serve.I dont think it was the prettiest tennis out there, said Bouchard, who reached the semifinals in her first trip to Melbourne Park last year and went on to make the semifinals or better at two of the other three majors in a breakthrough season.Third-seeded Simona Halep, who lost the French Open final to Sharapova last year, advanced with a 6-4, 7-5 win over Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Her fourth-round match is against Yanina Wickmayer, who had an upset win over No. 14-seeded Sara Errani. Tim Williams Youth Jersey . The visitors missed a host of good chances to win the game, and were left to rue substitute Ivo Ilicevics strike against the crossbar in the 86th minute, when he only had the goalkeeper to beat. Chris Wormley Ravens Jersey . Patty Mills scored 15 points, Tim Duncan had 10 points and 11 rebounds in limited minutes, and San Antonio trailed for only 11 seconds late in the first quarter of a 103-90 victory over Portland on Wednesday night. http://www.footballravensstore.us/authentic-tim-williams-ravens-jersey/ . -- Damian Lillard couldnt believe when he got a clear look at the rim.CLEVELAND -- The Kansas City Royals needed a big hit.

The burst was more than enough for James Shields (2-2), who allowed two runs and struck out nine in six innings in winning his second straight start. "Moose drove one in the seats," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "It was good to see to get on the board like that." "Thats huge," said Shields, who has 21 strikeouts in his last two starts. "Were down 1-0 right there. Moose put a good swing on it and got us the lead." Yost knew his team was in good shape with his ace in charge. "Youve got James Shields on the mound throwing his usual game," Yost said. "Nine punch-outs and combine that with what he did his last start, thats pretty impressive work." Eric Hosmer had four hits, including an RBI double in the seventh. "I really didnt have my best stuff, but I located my fastball when I needed to and I got some early outs," Shields said. "Overall, it was a good outing." Cleveland manager Terry Francona turned 55 years old Tuesday, but the Indians were unable to win a third straight game for the first time this season. "Unfortunately, Shields is pretty much the same every time we see him. With his command and aggressiveness, hes one of the best," Francona said. Danny Salazar (0-3) didnt allow a hit until the fourth, but unraveled quickly when Hosmer led off with a single, the first of five hits in the inning. Billy Butler followed with another single before Salazar retired the next two hitters. Moustakas drove a 1-1 pitch into Kansas Citys bullpen in right field, breaking a 2 for 15 slump.

Hosmer doubled with onee out and scored on Butlers double. Tim Williams Womens Jersey. Hosmer was 4 for 5. His seventh-inning double gave Kansas City a four-run lead and he added a single in the ninth. "After that big swing from Moose, it loosened everybody up," Hosmer said. "We know anytime Shields is on the mound its not going to take very many runs to get a win." Salazar, who pitched well in 10 starts after being called up last season, hasnt been able to find the same consistency in his first four starts. The right-hander allowed five runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings. He struck out six. Shields allowed an unearned run in the second, but held the Indians in check until the sixth. Bourns bases-loaded single put Cleveland ahead. Second baseman Omar Infantes fielding error on Asdrubal Cabreras ground ball started the rally. David Murphy singled and Lonnie Chisenhall was hit by a pitch with two outs. Bourns sharp single to right scored Cabrera. Royals catcher Salvador Perez was 0 for 5 and is hitless in his last 22 at-bats. Cleveland third baseman Carlos Santana is in a 2 for 43 skid after going hitless in four at-bats.

The squirrel that ran on the field during Mondays game brought back memories for Francona when he was managing winter ball in the Dominican Republic.
