PARIS -- David Ferrer stunned top-seeded Rafael Nadal 6-3, 7-5 and Novak Djokovic beat Roger Federer from a set and break down in the Paris Masters semifinals on Saturday. Djokovic prevailed 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 for his 16th straight match win. Ferrer had lost nine straight times to Nadal, including in this years French Open final, and hadnt beaten his fellow Spaniard in almost three years. But this time the defending champion hit 29 winners to 19 and won 14 of 18 net points. "I played maybe my best match this season," Ferrer said, "very aggressive with my forehand and with my shots." Ferrer broke for 3-1 and went a set up with a low forehand volley. He capitalized on a wide forehand from Nadal to lead 2-1 in the second set. Ferrer saved five break points in that set but failed to serve out the match at 5-4, allowing Nadal to break back. Nadal gave Ferrer another chance as he hit a forehand long to drop serve. Ferrer went on to seal the victory with a forehand winner. "I was slow," Nadal said. "Always I was a little bit late on the ball. So against a player like David, hes quick and he plays inside the court, and he puts pressure on you all the time, you are dead, no?" Nadals best result at the Paris Masters was runner-up in 2007. He still leads 20-5 against Ferrer but acknowledged his successful year is taking its toll on him. "At the end of the season, a lot of times the body, the mind, and the tennis are tougher for me," Nadal said. "I arrived a bit more tired, and the condition of these courts didnt help me a lot." Nadal unseated Djokovic atop the rankings by reaching the final of the China Open last month. He looks to finish the season as No. 1 for the first time since 2010. In the other semifinal, Djokovic was facing Federer for the 30th time but the first this year. Djokovic struggled with his serve early, making two straight double faults to hand Federer a break point. Federer converted it for 2-1 with a backhand volley after hitting a drop shot to draw the Serb to the net. The 17-time Grand Slam champion saved four break points at 5-4 and took the first set when Djokovic hit a backhand return long. "The key was just to hang in there and stay with him," Djokovic said. "I knew that hes going to be very aggressive from the start coming to the net. He used his opportunities really well. He was very efficient at the net. Then, I tried to decrease the number of unforced errors and step in when its needed." Federer, who won the Paris Masters two years ago, capitalized on an unforced error from Djokovic to break the Serb in the opening game of the second set. But Djokovic immediately broke back before taking a 4-2 lead when Federer netted a routine forehand volley. The second-seeded Serb now seemed in control of the match, hitting 11 winners to five for Federer in the second set. "My serve was better towards the end of the second set," Djokovic said. "And I got more free points, lets say, on my first serves, which was one of the keys today." "I needed to . have better placement on my serve and just not go too much for the power but rather accuracy, and it worked well afterwards." The Australian Open champion broke Federer twice in the final set and clinched the victory with a forehand winner. Djokovic still has a slim chance to finish the season ahead of Nadal in the rankings. Despite the loss, Federer still leads 16-14 against Djokovic. "I was pretty happy with my level of play," the Swiss said. "I wish I could have kept it up for a bit longer and put him under pressure."

On a successful day for the Merseyside clubs, Everton won 3-1 at last-place Fulham to close to within four points of fourth-place Arsenal ahead of their meeting at Goodison Park next weekend. Liverpool -- the leagues top scorers -- produced another masterful attacking display against a porous Spurs defence, with Younes Kabouls second-minute own-goal added to by strikes from Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson to seal an eighth straight win for the Reds. They made the most of Chelseas 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace on Saturday and are two points clear of Jose Mourinhos side with six games left. Manchester City, which drew 1-1 at fourth-place Arsenal, is two points further back in third and crucially has two games in hand. The destiny of the Premier League is in Liverpools hands, though, and the momentum is with them. "Youll Never Walk Alone" -- the clubs anthem -- is being sung with renewed gusto before every game while scarves and flags are out in force in the stands, recalling the period in the late-1970s and early 1980s when Liverpool was the dominant team not just in England but in Europe. "Outstanding team performance and I thought the supporters were brilliant -- thats as good as Ive heard at Anfield since Ive been manager here," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "Its been a tough period over 20-odd years, and they can see something building here." Chelsea and City must come to Anfield next month and they will not relish the task one bit. Certainly Spurs didnt look up for the fight -- they conceded after 97 seconds and were all over the place in defence on another dire performance against a leading club. Kaboul, who endured a miserable match, turned a deflected cross into his own net to set Liverpool on its way and substitute centre back Michael Dawson inadvertently set Suarez clear in the 25th for the Urugguayan to put away his 29th league goal of the season -- a Liverpool record in the Premier League era, surpassing Robbie Fowler (from 1995-96).dddddddddddd "The game was pretty much finished after two mistakes early on. They took a lot of belief from that and went from strength to strength," said Spurs manager Tim Sherwood, whose team is sixth and now eight points off fourth-place Arsenal in the race for the final Champions League qualification spot. The second half was just as one-sided, with Coutinho finishing off a wonderful team goal in the 55th with a low drive from 25 metres before Hendersons inswinging free kick missed everyone in the area and landed in the bottom corner. "For us, the mantra has always been to focus on the next game, we never get too carried away," said Rodgers, again downplaying Liverpools title hopes. "It is very difficult, theres lots of people dreaming about Liverpool winning the title." The way Everton is playing, there could yet be two Merseyside clubs in the Champions League next season. Roberto Martinezs side secured a fifth consecutive league win thanks to an improved second-half performance at Craven Cottage, where it took the lead in the 50th when Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale turned a deflected shot by Steven Naismith into his own net. Ashjan Dejagah drew Fulham level in the 71st with a stunning 25-meter drive that beat Tim Howard at his near post, but well-taken goals by Kevin Mirallas and Naismith in the final 11 minutes saw Everton home. Everton is now four points above Spurs and has a game in hand over them and Arsenal, whose trip to Goodison Park next Sunday could have a massive bearing in the race for fourth. "Im not saying were going to get that because we admire Arsenal because they get in the Champions League consistently," Martinez said. "They have developed a real understanding (of) what to do in these games, so that makes Sunday a phenomenal challenge. "It will probably go down to the last game of the season." Fulham stayed bottom and is five points adrift of safety. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
