LONDON -- Canadian Vasek Pospisil and American partner Jack Sock earned a berth in the Wimbledon mens doubles final Friday with a 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-4 upset victory over Indias Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic. Paul Molitor Blue Jays Jersey . Pospisil, from Vancouver, and Sock will compete for the title against defending champions and top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan of the United States, who defeated the 12th-seeded French duo of Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-2. Pospisil and Sock are playing together for the first time and may have surprised even themselves with their progress. The fifth-seeded Paes and Stepanek had beaten Torontos Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia in the quarter-finals a day earlier. It has been a breakthrough tournament for several Canadian players at the All England Club. Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., was scheduled to play Roger Federer in the mens singles semifinal later Friday. Eugenie Bouchard from Westmount, Que., will play the womens final on Saturday against 2011 champion Petra Kvitova. Nestor and French partner Kristina Mladenovic, the defending mixed doubles champions, have reached the semifinal and will next play Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Hao-Ching Chan of Taiwan. The Bryans did not reach the final at any of the last three Grand Slam tournaments -- after winning four major titles in a row before that. Left-hander Bob and right-hander Mike have a record 15 Grand Slam doubles titles, including three at Wimbledon. Devon Travis Jersey . Price took part in a full practice with his teammates on Friday ahead of the teams Saturday night contest against the Ottawa Senators. Joe Carter Blue Jays Jersey . The Dane is leaving the Premier League club after 20 months, having signed a new contract in March 2013 after being linked with leading clubs following his teams triumph in the League Cup.SOCHI, Russia – In light of another devastating loss to injury, Swedish defender Erik Karlsson need only recall what occurred in Ottawa last season when it seemed a rash of injuries would derail his Senators season. Only it didnt. Despite losing Karlsson, their no.1 defenceman, Jason Spezza, their no. 1 centre and Craig Anderson, their no. 1 goalie, Ottawa scraped and scratched toward a remarkable season in 2012-13, finishing as an unlikely seventh seed in the Eastern Conference before upsetting the Montreal Canadiens in the first round. And so now despite losing captain Henrik Zetterberg for the remainder of the Olympics with first-rate centre Henrik Sedin and rugged winger Johan Franzen already on the shelf, Sweden is prepared to defiantly march on. Backed by a 26-save shutout from Henrik Lundqvist and a late third period goal from Daniel Alfredsson, they did just that on Friday, edging the Swiss at Bolshoy Ice Dome in a hotly-contested preliminary round battle. "It doesnt really change anything in our mindset," said Karlsson of the Zetterberg absence, following the 1-0 victory against a feisty Switzerland squad. "Weve just got to foocus on what we have and we have a pretty good group of guys without those guys as well so we should be able to play some good hockey, even though we miss them a lot. Roy Halladay Blue Jays Jersey. " "Every team goes through injuries," added Alex Steen brashly, starting the tournament alongside Zetterberg and Gabriel Landeskog. "Its the same in the NHL as it is in the Elite League as it is in the Olympics, part of the job. Its [the media who] make it a bigger deal." Even without Zetterberg, Sedin and Franzen, the Swedes still boast a fair share of slick skill and talent with Patrik Berglund now alongside Steen and Landeskog and Nicklas Backstrom firing between Daniel Sedin and Loui Eriksson. And with continued excellence from Lundqvist between the pipes and an easy-moving, oft-explosive defence fronted by Karlsson and Oliver Ekman-Larsson, their shot at reclaiming gold for the first time since 2006 remains intact – if not slightly more difficult. "I could just feel my energy went down when I heard the news," said Lundqvist of Zetterberg, who is suffering from a herniated disc. "But at the same time, you have to regroup."
