Canadian Milos Raonic came up short in his bid to reach the mens final four at Roland Garros, dropping a 7-5, 7-6 (5), 6-4 decision to Novak Djokovic of Serbia on Tuesday. Boston Red Sox Jerseys . Raonic, the No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., fired 21 aces but converted only one of two break opportunities in the match, which also lasted two hours 22 minutes. Raonic, the first Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam singles quarterfinal in the post-1968 Open era, stalled in the third set but managed to break Djokovic as the second seed was serving for victory at 5-2. Djokovic closed it out two games later when a Raonic forehand sailed wide. The last Canadian to reach a mens singles semifinals at a Grand Slam was William Johnston at the 1923 US Championships. Robert Powell (Wimbledon, 1908) is the only other Canadian to reach a mens singles semifinal. Djokovic is a six-time major champion but he still needs to win the French Open to complete a career Grand Slam. He reached the semifinals at Roland Garros the last four years, but only made one final, losing to Rafael Nadal in 2012.

Pistorius denied the allegation that he said to the close friend of the girlfriend he killed: "How can you sleep at night?" The accusation by Kim Myers provided a bizarre twist during the trial of the world-famous double-amputee Olympian, who is facing 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder for shooting dead Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, at his home last year. Pistorius, 27, denies murder and says he killed Steenkamp by mistake thinking she was an intruder when he shot her multiple times through a closed toilet door. He also denied to reporters in the courtroom that he made any comment to Myers. Pistorius said he hadnt spoken to members of the Myers family for weeks, despite sitting a few feet away from them during proceedings. Myers lawyer said she told him it happened. Myers was approached by Pistorius and he made the remark to her in a "very sinister way," the lawyer for Myers told The Associated Press. Attorney Ian Levitt said Myers was "shocked" and did not know what it referred to. Levitt said she found it "extremely disturbing." "Its important to confirm this. It was in front of witnesses. Journalists have witnessed this," Levitt said of the alleged comment. Levitt was not in the courtroom but said Myers phoned him to report it. Reporters said Pistorius apparently made a comment to Myers as he walked close to the court benches reserved for family and friends of both Pistorius and Steenkamp. Levitt added that he made a complaint to state prosecution officials, although officials at South Africas National Prosecuting Authority said they would not be acting on the report. The Myers family was very close to Steenkamp. Steennkamp lived with them after moving to Johannesburg to further her modelling career and they referred to themselves as her second family.

"Ive asked the client and he denies that he said it," Webber said. During trial proceedings, two women who lived on either side of the house where Pistorius killed Steenkamp were called by the defence as witnesses and were asked to make high-pitched wails while testifying. The defence was trying to show that Pistorius cries on the night of the shooting could be confused with a womans screams. The prosecution maintains that Pistorius killed Steenkamp intentionally and after she screamed during a loud fight. Other neighbours testified that they heard a woman screaming before and during the sound of gunshots -- evidence of the heated argument between the couple, according to prosecutors. The defence says only Pistorius screamed, first to warn off a perceived intruder and then in desperate panic after realizing he had shot Steenkamp by mistake through the stall door in his darkened bathroom. In total, three next-door neighbours were summoned by the Olympians defence on the 27th day of testimony. They all testified that they heard a mans high-pitched cries, but not a woman screaming. The neighbours were briefly cross-examined by chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel who sought, simply, to show that they had heard events after the fatal shooting and their testimonies were irrelevant to a possible fight between the couple. During the testimony, Pistorius sat on his wooden bench looking impassively at times at his former next-door neighbours, who all described him as friendly and a good neighbour. His legal team says they could wrap up presenting his defence by next Tuesday.
