PARIS - Canadas Milos Raonic has already shown this week that he can beat a member of the so-called Big Three.Hell get a chance to do it again in Sundays final of the Paris Masters.Raonic, who defeated second-ranked Roger Federer in the quarter-finals, topped Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 6-3, 3-6, 7-5 in the semifinals on Saturday. Next up is top-ranked Novak Djokovic of Serbia, who defeated Japans Kei Nishikori 6-2, 6-3 in the other semifinal.The seventh-seeded Canadian entered the tournament with an 0-14 career record against Djokovic (0-3), Federer (now 1-6) and third-ranked Rafael Nadal (0-5). Raonic was at his hard-serving best against Federer and didnt let up against the fifth-seeded Berdych.The world No. 10 sees room for improvement and is aiming for big things this month and down the road.I definitely think I can do a lot better than Im doing now, he said. If you asked me in 2008 when I turned pro, I would have said I would be happy to have a consistent top-50 career. When I broke through and got to top 150 I would have said, It would be nice to crack (the) top 10 and be consistently top 50.Things are changing as I go. Im learning a lot more about myself, a lot more about my potential, what I believe I can do and how I need to do it.Raonic picked up a break in the final game against Berdych to complete the victory in two hours eight minutes.Its great, I played another very good match today, Raonic said. I had some difficulties there at certain aspects of the match. But I was able to find solutions, I was fortunate with that. I think I played some good tennis, so Im ready for the challenges ahead.Trailing 5-6 in the deciding set, Berdych needed to hold serve to set up a tiebreaker. Instead he wobbled with two double-faults and two more unforced errors, the second coming on a baseline shot that found the net.It was generous, Raonic said. I was not getting to the break-point opportunities, but a few of the games at the end I think I was getting a few points into the service games. In a very uncharacteristic way, he sort of just gave me a big opening and I did good enough to make the most of it.I know my game starts from holding my serve, so starting the third set I put a very heavy emphasis on focusing on that and simplifying my game as much as possible.Berdych smashed his racket on the court in frustration after his final error. Raonic, meanwhile, pumped his fist and let out a celebratory roar.There is not much to say, I just totally messed it up with the last game, said Berdych. It was definitely the worst game I ever played here (at) this tournament this year. Thats what decides it and what makes it feel bad.You have days like this that when things are going well, at the last moment everything is gone.Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., had 12 aces and converted two of three break-point opportunities. Berdych had seven aces and broke Raonic once in four tries.The Canadian, who improved to 3-1 lifetime against Berdych, has won six ATP Tour titles over his career but is still looking to break through at the Masters 1000 and Grand Slam level.Hell have his hands full with Djokovic, who needed just 62 minutes to eliminate Nishikori.I rely on my return, its one of the elements in my game that has served me well throughout my entire career, Djokovic said. That will probably be a key shot tomorrow, trying to get as many returns back in play and get into the rallies with Milos.Djokovic, who beat Raonic twice on clay this season, acknowledged the faster indoor hardcourt may help the Canadian.I dont think its a very pleasurable experience when youre playing against somebody who serves 220, 230 kilometres (an hour) regularly.I havent dropped a set, Djokovic added. And I feel confident about my game as much as he does about his game, so its going to be definitely a good final.Raonics strong performance this week also helped him lock up a spot in the season-ending ATP Finals.Every goal that I set this year would be leading to me being in the finals in London, he said. To be able to achieve that is very special. It means a lot.The opportunity ahead with all the matches that will be coming up tomorrow and then the following 15 days, its about making the most of that and going out there and trying to find a way to win as much as possible.Raonic ended an 11-month title drought last August with his first victory at a World Tour 500-level event in Washington. He defeated Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil in the first mens singles final between Canadians in the Tours Open era.Raonic reached a career-high No. 6 in the world rankings the following week but has since slipped a few positions. He has made strides at the Grand Slam level this season. Raonic reached his first French Open quarter-final before falling to Djokovic and went one round further at Wimbledon before losing to Federer in the semifinals.Raonic reached his first Masters 1000 final last year at the Rogers Cup in Montreal. He lost to Nadal in the final.This is a guy we need to watch for the future, Berdych said of Raonic. Hes slowly proving that hes going to be really a tough player with all the weapons that he has.Hes been in a tough situation all this week and he handled it well. Fletcher Cox Youth Jersey . - The Detroit Lions have placed tight end Brandon Pettigrew on injured reserve, ending his season. Brian Westbrook Youth Jersey . -- Manager Bob Melvin shuffled the Athletics batting order and got the type of production he was looking for from the top of the lineup. . "Back in 2011, when they announced that the game was coming here, we knew that it was going to be pretty important that we had a good year and hopefully could get into it, let alone win it, so I felt some pressure obviously within for sure," Taman said Monday, less than 24 hours after the Riders won the championship. Randall Cunningham Eagles Jersey .C. -- Clemson celebrated a senior class Saturday that brought the program back as a national contender. Ron Jaworski Womens Jersey . -- Canadian mens rugby coach Kieran Crowley has made four changes to his starting roster for Saturdays Pacific Nations Cup clash against the United States.SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers were finally able to beat former goalie Craig Anderson.Jimmy Hayes scored the winning goal to lift the Panthers over the Ottawa Senators 3-2 on Friday night.Sean Bergenheim and Dylan Olsen also scored for the Panthers, and Vincent Trocheck had two assists. Al Montoya made 22 saves in his fourth start of the season. No. 1 goalie Roberto Luongo missed the game because of a lower-body injury sustained Wednesday against Carolina.The Panthers had a season-high 46 shots and won their second in a row at home.Anderson, who spent 2006-09 with the Panthers, stopped 43 shots. He came into the game 11-2-1 against the Panthers, including a shutout in their last meeting on Oct. 13. He was especially sharp in the second period when he turned away 16 shots, many of them quality chances.It was extremely frustrating. We had point-blank shots on breakaways, said Trocheck, who assisted on the winning goal. Anderson played great, but luckily we were able to come out on top.Cody Ceci scored a goal, and Chris Neil had a goal and an assist for Ottawa.After struggling to get anything past Anderson for most of the game, the Panthers scored two goals in the third to take a 3-2 lead.Trocheck passed from the bottom of the left circle to Hayes, who skated in on the right side. His wrist shot beat Anderson at 7:31 to make it 3-2.The Panthers had gotten even just 34 seconds into the third. Bergenheims shot from the left circle went over Andersons right shoulder and in off the post.Anderson was frustrated that his stellar effort was wasted.I feel pretty embarrassed right now after that effort that we put out there, Anderson said. Mentallyy, we played a team that wasnt in the playoffs and maybe that was our mindset that we should beat them because of that, but we didnt work for it.ddddddddddddttawa took a 2-1 lead in the second on Cecis goal. Neils shot was blocked but the rebound came out to Ceci in the right circle. He put the puck behind Montoya at 2:41.The Senators had only four shots in the third period.You cant ask your goalie to bail you out every game, Neil said. (The Panthers) had way too many odd-man rushes. We just werent on the same page. It was just a brutal game by us.Montoya played well for the Panthers but the Senators didnt press him late.They werent shooting the puck much, Montoya said. This is one we wanted to have and we deserved to have.The Senators went ahead 1-0 on Neils goal. Eric Condra passed from the right circle across to Neil in front. Neil slapped the puck past Montoya on the glove side at 5:04 of the first period.The Panthers tied it 47 seconds later. Dylan Olsen took a pass from Trocheck in the high slot, and his wrist shot slid under Andersons pads for his first goal of the season.He (Anderson) was outstanding, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. We worked hard and kept pushing and pushing, and finally a couple pucks got by him. It was probably our best offensive game.NOTES: Ottawa played its third of five games on the road... Panthers LW Shawn Thornton took a puck to the face and left the game late in the second period but returned in the third. ... Florida RW Scottie Upshall was placed on the injured list because of a lower-body injury. ... Dan Ellis was recalled by Florida from AHL San Antonio on Thursday to back up Montoya. ' ' '
