ROME -- Canadian Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic reached the doubles final of the Italian Open on Saturday as they beat top-seeded Bob and Mike Bryan for the second week in a row, advancing 7-6 (3), 4-6, 12-10. The sixth-seeded pair, who beat the Americans last week in the Madrid Masters final, needed one hour 39 minutes to complete the semifinal victory at the Foro Italico. "Today we were fortunate," said Nestor. "It was a tight match with both teams playing well. We both had chances but we found a way to win today. "It seems that against the Bryans right now, we can play our best against them when we have to." Nestor and Zimonjic will play an unseeded duo on Sunday. Robin Haase of the Netherlands and Spains Feliciano Lopez were to play Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic in the late semifinal. Either way, it will be a first career meeting for the veteran duo of Nestor and Zimonjic. "Both teams are very dangerous, and weve struggled against teams we dont know much about," said Nestor. "We need to come to the court ready to play every point and not be satisfied with whats been going on for the last few weeks. "Our goal is to play well. If they are too good, well they are too good. If not, then we win a second title in a row." In the match tiebreak, Nestor and Zimonjic took a 6-3 lead only to give up three straight points. The Bryans blew a match point before Nestors team claimed victory on their second match point. The Canadian and his partner have won 26 titles as a team, including victories at Sydney and Madrid this season. They lost finals in Dubai and Barcelona. Nestor also won the Brisbane title alongside Mariusz Fyrstenberg of Poland in the opening week of the season. The Canadian is third with 84 career titles, trailing Mike Bryan (100) and Bob Bryan (9Cool. The 41-year-old Canadian will be playing in his 140th career doubles final. Tobias Enstrom Jersey . Claude Noel will be the man behind the bench when the team hits the ice of the MTS Centre to begin its inaugural season. Kyle Connor Jets Jersey . Jose Bautista homered for the fifth straight game in the sixth inning, following a two-out solo homer by Melky Cabrera. Edwin Encarnacion led off the seventh with a homer to tie the game 3-3 and, with two out in the seventh, Munenori Kawasaki came through with the two-out single to score pinch-runner Steve Tolleson with what proved to be the winning run. http://www.thehockeyjetsjerseysofficial.com/zach-bogosian-hockey-jersey/ . Argentina, who have yet to beat New Zealand in 17 meetings, rocked the All Blacks with an early converted try to backrower Juan Manuel Leguizamon and led 7-0 after five minutes. But Smiths double in the 23rd and 26th minutes - when Argentina was reduced to 14 men by the sin-binning of hooker Eusebio Guinazu - turned the tide of the match and set up New Zealands third straight Championship win. Connor Hellebuyck Jersey . - A lot of scenarios ran through Terrell Suggs head when the Baltimore linebacker prepared to face the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bryan Little Jersey . -- Colin Kaepernick insists he just happened to pull on a pair of socks with dollar bill prints all over them Wednesday morning -- before he learned he had struck a new fortune with the San Francisco 49ers.WINNIPEG -- Maurice Leggett may be a CFL rookie, but hes been around professional football since 2008. Thats long enough to have played in a lot of different schemes, and he says he likes the feel of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers new-look defence. "Its fun to me, its like Hey, look what I can do now," the member of Winnipegs secondary said after practice Tuesday. "Its a fun defence. The best way to play is having fun." The bible according to defensive co-ordinator Gary Etcheverry is know what your neighbour does and be prepared to do it yourself, whenever and wherever necessary. "I have to learn the entire defence just in case something happens, or I have to direct someone that doesnt know what to do as well as I know the defence," said Leggett, who could be returning to the lineup in Vancouver Friday, after being out with an ankle injury since July 3. Hes healthy again at the right time, with a question mark hanging over an injured Johnny Sears for Fridays tilt against the surging B.C. Lions. "He seems like a pretty smart football player," said head coach Mike OShea. "Hes smooth, smooth, smooth out there. Hes competitive. He can do a bunch of different things. We were pretty happy with Moe Leggett from the get-go so its not a stretch to see him in there." OShea says his versatility is exactly what the Bombers want. "These guys got to know the goal is, by some point during the season, they know everything about every position," OShea said. "Thats how they meet, thats how they talk." The other side to Etcheverrys defence is dictate the play with a healthy side of unpredictability. Its not quiite freelance, said Leggett.dddddddddddd "You have a structure to it but the structure is communication more than anything. . . Were not there yet completely but were on the verge of making a lot of progress." At five-foot-eleven and 186 pounds, Leggett came to the Bombers from the Arena Football League, after stints with Kansas City and Detroit in the NFL. Signed by the Chiefs in 2008, Leggett won the Mack Lee Hill Award as the teams top rookie, the first undrafted player to win the award. He started eight games for Kansas City but was injured in 2009 and 2010 and attended Lions training camp in 2011. Promising young players like Leggett made it easier for the Bombers to release high-profile singing Korey Banks earlier this month. Meanwhile, OShea says while Sears remains a maybe, defensive end Jason Vega definitely wont be playing the Lions. Winnipegs defence held but their offence stumbled against the Edmonton Eskimos last week. OShea says they need to improve communication on the offensive line but he is confident that will be addressed in Vancouver. "What do we need to fix? The mistakes," he said with a laugh. The Bombers are still deciding whether receiver Aaron Kelly will be back in the lineup Friday. Defensively, there were more than a few missed tackles last week as Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly racked up close to 100 yards on the ground, but the Bombers held the Eskimos to just one offensive touchdown in the 26-3 loss. It was their first loss this season and they head to B.C. at 3-1, while the improved Lions (2-2), are coming off a 41-5 drubbing of the Montreal Alouettes last week, their second win in a row.
