TOKYO - Canadas Milos Raonic moved closer to a possible place in the ATP season-ending event as he reached a second straight final at the Japan Open on Saturday with a 7-6 (4), 6-1 semifinal win over Croatian Ivan Dodig. But the 22-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., is trying to keep it all in perspective as he improves one spot to provisional tenth in the race to the eight-man World Tour Finals set for London in just over a month. No Canadian has ever played the elite tournament in singles, though Torontos Daniel Nestor has made multiple appearances at year-enders in doubles. "London is still far away for me," said Raonic, winner of his last eight matches in Asia and the champion last weekend in Bangkok. "I dont have any issues thinking about it. "Im playing well but I have a long way to go to possibly qualify. I need to keep giving myself chances to try and make it. But Im not letting it get into my head. "Im just concentrating on each match, Ive been playing well and I want to keep that up. I know what I have to do to keep on winning these matches, thats what I want to concentrate on right now." Raonic, seeded third, will play for the title on Sunday at the Ariake Colosseum against the winner of top seed Juan Martin del Potro and Spanish No. 6 Nicolas Almagro. Raonic lost the Tokyo final a year ago to Japans Kei Nishikori, who went out this year in the quarter-finals to Almagro while complaining of back pain. As he bids for the sixth title of his career and third this season after San Jose and Bangkok, Raonic said that his run of form over the past months was made possible by his final against Rafael Nadal at the Rogers Cup in Montreal in August. "Montreal helped me to gain confidence,"he said of the first event he played after taking on former player Ivan Ljubicic as his coach. "I wasnt playing my best there, but it got me started." It took just under 90 minutes for Raonic to defeat Dodig, with the first set lasting almost one hour. The Canadian took charge in the second set with his big serve. Raonic faced the first break point in three matches, saving it in the third game of the second set against Dodig, who had won both of their previous matches. He recovered from a 4-1 deficit in the first set, then passed Dodig 5-4 and set up a pair of set points after the Croatian sailed his return wide. Raonic fired over his sixth ace to seal the long set and took that momentum into the second set, which barely lasted 30 minutes. Raonic won his 41st match of the season and his eighth straight in Asia after claiming the Bangkok title last weekend over Tomas Berdych. Saturdays match marked Raonics fifth time playing in a semifinal this season, and he has now won four of them. He came to the court without having faced a break point in 30 previous games and has held serve in 79 of 81 games during his Asian run. He will be playing in back-to-back finals for the third time in his career. Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version had the incorrect first name for del Potro. .ca. Hi Kerry, Love reading your column and loved watching your analysis on the TSN broadcasts!And were now in Round 2! Bruins! Canadiens! We know all about the great games of the past from the players, the broadcasters and the writers. . CEO Steve Koonin on Tuesday told the Hawks flagship radio station that he made the decision to discipline Ferry but allowed him to keep his job managing the team. He did not say what the punishment was, but noted that he relied on a law firms three-month investigation of Ferry and him describing Deng as someone who has a little African in him. http://www.authenticeaglesshopnfl.com/. Tensions rose in the first period when Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik hit Bruins forward Loui Eriksson with what appeared to be a clean hit. . "We were left with the overall impression that the team wasnt trending toward being able to compete for a Stanley Cup," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said in a news conference at the clubs arena. "And that was just a clear signal and why it was time to make those changes. . The matchup will be made up in Minnesota at a later date. The arena was evacuated about 45 minutes before the scheduled 9:30 p.m. EST tipoff when a generator malfunction outside the arena sent smoke pouring into the building, according to NBA spokeswoman Sharon Lima.TORONTO - Toronto FC fans may have seen the last of Jermain Defoe.The 32-year-old England striker has aggravated a groin injury and will miss Saturdays home finale against the Montreal Impact. His status for the season finale in New England is up in the air, as is his future in Major League Soccer given the speculation over his status at the end of the last transfer window.Defoe insists he is happy in Toronto. But he has not looked beyond this season, saying he cant predict the future. The door to the rest of the soccer world swings opens again in January.Toronto coach Greg Vanney has sympathy for Defoes physical woes, having suffered a similar injury (osteitis pubis) while playing in France.Once it inflames, it is a debilitating injury, Vanney said after practice Friday. And it takes months to heal. Some players will end up in surgery and some players will miss a full season. If its anything similar to that, then I understand his plight.Aside from that. I think hes a true professional. And at the end of the day, he doesnt feel 100 per cent, he doesnt feel he can give what hes capable of giving and therefore he needs to get right.Defoe has played in the last three games since missing nine of the 10 previous matches due to the groin injury. He looked like his range-finder was off, missing a penalty and lacking sharpness.I think between the groin injury and the migration of the pain and the inflammation, theyre not exactly sure what it is, Vanney said of the injury. Either way its going to take him some time to really get over it.Defoe, who has not had a break other than injury in back-to-back seasons in England and North America, was one day from undergoing hernia surgery during his last layoff.The former Spurs star has missed 12 games through injury and one through suspension in his debut MLS season.He collected 11 goals and two assists in 1,169 minutes of play in the teams first 17 games of the season. He has no points in 360 minutes of play in the 15 games since.Still he is Torontos leading scorer with 11 goals in 19 games. And it speaks volumes about Torontos sad-sack history that Defoe already stands No. 5 on Torontos all-time scoring list.Still a healthy Defoe has been a considerable weapon. Toronto is 6-0-2 when he scores this season. Unfortunately he has not scored since July 17 — 16 games ago. And his goals have come at a cost — US$561,816 per strike.Overall, Toronto (11-14-7) is 6-7-6 when Defoe plays this season.Injuries to both Defoe and Brazils Gilberto hampered their time and ability to forge a strike partnership. The two designated players have done better alongside Englands Luke Moore, who can hold the ball up and plays others into the attack than they have together although there hasnt been much service other than from Michael Bradley and Jonathan Osorio.While Defoe has shown he can score in MLS, he has been less successful in becoming the face of the franchise. Tim Leiweke, the outgoing CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, wanted an ambassador as well as a striker for his US$6.18-million salary outlay this season.Leiweke only got one and it seems clear that he and Defoe had different designated player job descriptions.Defoe did not help himself by flying to England for treatment and then failing to address the rampant speculation over his future during his last innjury absence.dddddddddddd Two tweets didnt do much to win over a weary fan base that has heard too many snake-oil pitches.One wonders just how happy Defoe has been here, despite the fact that Toronto FC has by all reports bent over backwards to help him settle in. Defoes locker stall usually featured two cellphones, presumably one for North America and one for Britain. It may make fiscal sense but it hardly screams settling in.Defoe has been pleasant to deal with, although it is clear the media access in North America is completely foreign — and somewhat bewildering — to him. If he was briefed on having to expect cameras in his face while he towels off, the message didnt get through.He comes across as someone who just wants to play soccer. Just perhaps, not here.If thats the case, hes allowed — especially given the departure or impending exit of the people who brought him here. Fans just want some clarity, so they know who to cheer for.Defoe wont be the only high-profile Toronto FC absentee Saturday at BMO Field. Bradley, the teams other marquee player, is suspended for accumulation of yellow cards. And, perhaps in a symbol of the franchises run of luck this season, rookie defender Nick Hagglund is both injured and suspended.Toronto enters the weekend in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, six points behind the Columbus Crew (12-10-10). In order to make the playoffs for the first time, Toronto needs to gain maximum points against Montreal and New England and hope the Crew lose their remaining games against New York and Philadelphia.Its possible but improbable, although Toronto sees a sliver of hope.We know that theres a crack in the door for us, said Vanney.Crazier things have happened in this league, added Bradley.Stranger things have happened, echoed captain Steven Caldwell.Should Toronto win Saturday, it will have to wait a day to see how Columbus fares against the Red Bulls.Sitting at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, Montreal (6-18-8) is looking to play spoiler.Our main focus is to get a result to knock them out of the playoffs, said goalkeeper Evan Bush. With the rivalry we have with them, it would be special to knock them out. They tried to do it to us last year and they didnt feel bad about it.Toronto has lost three straight, during which it has been outscored 7-1. Montreal, meanwhile, has been beaten just once in its last five outings (2-1-2) in all competitions.Former Impact midfielder Collen Warner is expected to replace Bradley in a Toronto midfield featuring Osorio, Warren Creavalle and Brazils Jackson. Doneil Henry steps in for Hagglund at centre back. Moore and Gilberto will start up front.Montreal star striker Marco Di Vaio is available despite travelling to Italy for the midweek announcement that his old club Bologna is being bought by a consortium that includes Impact owner Joey Saputo.Notes: Toronto blanked Montreal 2-0 on goals by Gilberto and Moore when the teams met Aug. 2 at Saputo Stadium. ... Since joining the league, the Impact have never won in Toronto with two losses and three draws over five meetings in all competitions at BMO Field. Montreal did defeat Toronto 2-1 on aggregate in the final of the Amway Canadian Championship. ... Toronto did not appeal Hagglunds red card last week against New York.———Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter ' ' '
