SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Top-seeded Tommy Haas came back to defeat Horacio Zeballos of Argentina 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 to advance to the Brazil Open semifinals on Friday. Haas broke Zeballos serve twice in a row in the decisive set to close the match and take a step closer to his second final of the year. The 12th-ranked German lost to Marin Cilic in the final in Croatia earlier this month. Haas will next play Paolo Lorenzi of Italy, who reached his first ATP semifinal with an upset 7-6 (6), 6-7 (4), 6-4 win over fourth-seeded Juan Monaco of Argentina. "Lorenzi has been around for a long time so this is a goal Im sure he has been waiting to achieve for a lifetime," Haas said. "He has nothing to lose and is going to try to go one more and get to his first ATP tour final. He is a dangerous player. Im going to have to try to play some of my best tennis." The 114th-ranked Lorenzi broke Monacos serve to go up 4-3 in the final set and held on to close the match in 2 hours, 34 minutes at the Ibirapuera Arena. The 32-year-old Italian squandered a match point before losing the second set, but was in control in the third to pick up the win in the ATP 250 tournament in South Americas biggest city. Lorenzi served 12 aces en route to his first pro semifinal after five career quarterfinal losses. "Im very happy to finally breakthrough to the semifinals," Lorenzi said. "Ive had a lot of opportunities before but was never able to come up with the victory at this stage. For sure this is one of my greatest weeks on the tour." The 43rd-ranked Monaco was trying to win his 200th clay-court match. He is the fifth-highest winner on the surface, behind Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, Tommy Robredo and Nicolas Almagro. Monaco had a set point in the first set but couldnt capitalize on it. "It was a very close match, he had his chances in the first set and I had mine in the second, it was very difficult," Lorenzi said. In another quarterfinal Friday, Federico Delbonis of Argentina easily beat Alberto Montanes of Spain 6-4, 6-3 in just over an hour. He will play either home-crowd favourite Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil or Martin Klizan of Slovakia. Defending champion Rafael Nadal is not playing at the clay-court tournament this year. He chose to play at the first edition of the Rio Open, which he won last week. Sam Martin Jersey . The top-ranked Spaniard won his fourth Madrid Open on Sunday after Kei Nishikori was forced to withdraw with a hip injury when trailing 2-6, 6-4, 3-0 in the final. And Nadal, who is coming off to uncharacteristic quarterfinal losses on clay, said his mental strength is still lacking just two weeks ahead of the French Open. DaShawn Hand Jersey . However, the intensity and physicality that has characterized the postseason so far has caught Gretzky by surprise. "Its a little bit risqué right now," Gretzky told Philadelphia radio station 97. http://www.cheaplionsjerseyssale.com/?ta...ersey-sale. Colorado came up big against Chicago last spring, and repeated that performance Tuesday night. Varlamov stopped 36 shots and Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist for the Avalanche in a 5-1 victory over the Blackhawks. Matthew Stafford Jersey . In his first game with Boston University, the 17-year-old Eichel picked up five assists as his Boston University Terriers thumped St. T.J. Lang Jersey . Louis Cardinals have agreed to a one-year contract.Gilbert Melendez will not only continue fighting for the UFC, but he will do so for the lightweight title. The UFC confirmed reports Sunday that Melendez (22-3) was re-signed after the organization matched an offer sheet from Bellator. The UFC also confirmed that Melendez will now appear as a coach in the 20th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, with the two slated to fight for the title later this year. MMAFighting.com, who first reported the agreement, said the deal guarantees 75 per cent of Melendezs fights will be on pay-per-view. Furthermore, the agreement ensures the 31-year-old will earn income on pay-per-view points regardless of the success of the event, as well as his position in the main event, co-main event or main card. Such a contract will likely make “El Nino&rrdquo; one of the highest paid fighters in the organization.dddddddddddd He already makes a reported $200,000 per fight, which combined with his upcoming pay-per-view earnings is sure to place him among the sports elite incomes. Melendez was the hottest free agent on the market, however, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney was not bitter about missing out on the prize. “We have a stacked lightweight roster and Gil would have made a great addition to it, yet Im glad he was able to go out, explore the free agent market and get paid what he deserves,” Rebney told MMAFighting.com. “Thats what the free market system is all about. Im happy for Gil, that through this process he was able to ensure long term financial security for himself and his family. Thats what the fighters that put it all on the line inside the cage deserve."
