LONDON - Canadian Milos Raonic lost his second straight match at the ATP Finals on Tuesday and is now a longshot to make it to the weekend semifinals at the season-ending event. Jordan 6 Canada Online .Raonic dropped a 6-3, 7-5 decision to Britains Andy Murray to fall to 0-2 in round-robin play. The Canadian will face Japans Kei Nishikori on Thursday in a must-win match. Raonic could not seem to get his usually strong service game on track in the 91-minute match. The hard-serving right-hander was limited to just four aces and his first-serve percentage barely cleared 50 per cent. I didnt do my job today, said Raonic. To be frank, my first serve percentage at this moment, at least today, shouldnt have been above 40 per cent. I started hitting serves 115 miles an hour to get it past 50 per cent.I havent served well, Ive been too passive on the court. Ive been trying to beat the two guys playing their tennis and thats not going to work for me.The Canadian was forced to save two break points in the fourth game, then lost serve on a forehand error as Murray took a 4-2 lead. Raonic later saved two set points before eventually dropping the opener in 37 minutes.Murray picked up a late break in the second set to move ahead 6-5 and completed the victory when Raonic sent a return long.Raonic, from Thornhill, cannot lose a set against Nishikori in order to keep his faint semifinal hopes alive. I have some slim possibilities, Raonic said. I have to win in straight sets, but Im not going to start counting games now.Earlier, Canadian doubles veteran Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic also suffered their second loss and hold a slim chance of advancing out of the group stage.The pair, who are playing their final tournament together after two partnerships over the years, dropped a 6-4, 5-7, 10-4 decision to Frenchmen Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.Despite a 0-2 record, Torontos Nestor and Zimonjic are not officially out of contention for the semifinals, but they, like Raonic, will need to win their final group match to have any hope of advancing.Not so great I would imagine, a despondent Nestor said of his teams chances. Were trying to win the last match and thats it.It would be good to win this last match, you always want to finish a season on a better note. When you dont do so well you are motivated to try and get back into the winners circle.The defeat was the second for the pair in four meetings with the French team this season, with Nestor and Zimonjic winning at the Rogers Cup in Toronto and in Sydney.Nestor and Zimonjic were defeated in just under 90 minutes, with six aces and four double-faults. The team saved 12 of the 14 break points they faced but were able to break the French serve only twice in 10 attempts.The second-seeded duo went down in the 29-minute opening set after Nestor was broken in the seventh game.But in the second, the veteran pair fought back as Zimonjic saved three break points to hold for 5-all. A break of Roger-Vasselin in the final game sent the match to a tiebreak set.Nestor and Zimonjic trailed 2-4 and faced five match points at 4-9, with Nestor pounding a service return forehand into the net to lose.They were better and returned much better in key moments, Nestor said. They came up with big shots and put a lot of balls at our feet.Nestor and Zimonjic won the title in London in 2008 and 2009. Nestor, who is making a record 15th appearance at the season-ending event, also claimed the trophy in 2007 with Mark Knowles of the Bahamas and 2011 with Max Mirnyi of Belarus. Jordan 6 Clearance . - Even with a new coach, the Denver Nuggets still love to push the basketball. Jordan Retro 6 Canada . Then again, he really was at his home away from home. "It was nice to sleep in my own bed last night," Shields said after pitching Kansas City past the San Diego Padres 8-0 Wednesday.KAUPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii -- Bernhard Langer and Fred Couples broke away with birdies on the 17th to top the leaderboard going into Sundays final round of the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai.
