LONDON - Roger Federer blew away Andy Murray 6-0, 6-1 to finish the ATP Finals round-robin unbeaten, and hand Murray his worst defeat in seven years in front of his home crowd on Thursday. Justin Jackson Jersey .Federer, the most successful player at the year-end championship with six titles, equaled Ivan Lendls record of 12 semifinal appearances in winning his group ahead of Japanese debutant Kei Nishikori.I knew I was qualified, so maybe I went in a bit more relaxed, Federer said. Its not the way I thought it was going to go, but theres always next year for Andy.It was a ruthless win for Federer, and humiliation for Murray, who last won only one game in 2007 at Miami, against Novak Djokovic.It was a tough night. Ive lost slam finals and stuff, which has been very tough, Murray said. But in terms of the way the match went, it was not ideal from my side of the court, far from it.In the other group, Djokovic will be guaranteed the year-end No. 1 ranking for the third time in four years if he beats Tomas Berdych on Friday. Going into the last round-robin matches, all four players can still make it to the semis; U.S. Open champ Marin Cilic takes on Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka.Before playing Murray, the second-seeded Federer had already secured a semis berth after Nishikori defeated David Ferrer 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the afternoon. That left Murray needing to defeat the 17-Grand Slam champion in straight sets to make it to the last four at the O2 Arena and thwart Nishikori.But Federer, yet to drop a set, made a perfect start, losing only eight points in a 23-minute first set without even serving well.Murray, who fought hard this autumn to qualify for the season finale, continued to struggle in the second set. Federer opened a 5-0 lead and moved 30-0 up on Murrays service but missed an easy volley before the Scot managed to hold to salvage some pride, and give British fans a cheer.If I played well, he probably still would have won anyway, the fifth-seeded Murray said. He was striking the ball very, very clean. After the first few games of the match, he played exceptionally well. Made very few mistakes. Was hitting the ball off the middle of the racket on serve, returns. He maybe didnt hit his first serve as well as he can, but apart from that, everything else was very clean.Nishikori, the U.S. Open runner-up, is one of the three debutants at the tournament. He was rapt to advance at Ferrers expense.The final set was almost perfect, said Nishikori, who hit 41 winners and won 80 per cent of his first-service points.The Spaniard, who replaced the injured Milos Raonic at the last minute, took advantage of Nishikoris 18 unforced errors in the first set and made the decisive break in the 10th game when the Japanese player netted an easy smash.But Nishikori recovered to break at the start of the second set and served out to even the set score, making it the first match at the tournament to go to three sets following eight one-sided encounters.The fourth-seeded Nishikori won four consecutive games to start the third, and saved five break points in the sixth game before winning it with a drop shot.Ferrer missed out on qualifying for the ATP Finals after his loss to Nishikori in the Paris Masters quarterfinals last month. He said stepping in for Raonic at the last minute did not pose a problem despite articular problems in his back.My condition was perfect today, Kei was just better, said Ferrer, the 2007 runner-up.The seventh-seeded Raonic withdrew with a muscle injury after losing his two group matches in straight sets. Luka Doncic Jersey .Currently no, Tatjana Haenni, FIFAs deputy director of the competitions division and head of womens competitions, said Tuesday in an interview from Ottawa. J. J. Barea Jersey . - Maxence Parrot of Bromont, Que. . Its been a successful Games for Canada, which will finish near the top of the medal standings again. From repeat gold medal winners to multiple medal winners to undefeated teams to acts that define the Olympic spirit, there are many solid candidates who could be considered to receive the honour.Every night of the Stanley Cup playoffs, TSN hockey analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan breaks down each goalies performance. Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks (4) Crawfords third period save on Zach Parise is exactly what he is all about, timely save to preserve the lead. His positioning has been excellent, efficient and confident. Hes not chasing the puck, not opening up and he just makes it look easy when hes feeling it. His biggest strength comes in his ability to read plays. Ilya Bryzgalov, Minnesota Wild (3) Bryzgalov didnt receive help on any of the three goals he gave up. Jonathon Toews goal is a prime example of that; great save on Hossa, only to have Toewws jam in rebound. James Donaldson Jersey. Bryzgalov made some real good saves on Hossa, Bickell and Saad to give his team a chance today, however Minnesota was simply not very sharp. Marc-Andre Fleury (5) Fleury made good saves early on the penalty kill on Pouliot, Moore, and overall, made great scramble plays in the crease all night long. He was very strong handling the puck tonight with both his decision making and exchanges with D-men tonight. Henrik Lundqvist (4) Lundqvist made big saves on Kunitz, Sutter, Crosby, Bennett and Sutter tonight and had no chance on the goals against. He was the only reason this was two-goal game (outside the empty-netter). He made great reaction plays and fought through crease battles as he was under siege all night long. ' ' '
