    Paris, France (SportsNetwork. Robert Covington Jersey .com) - Surging Scot Andy Murray was an easy third-round winner Thursday at the $3.7 million Paris Masters. The eighth-seeded former world No. 2 star humbled ninth-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 6-3 in 69 minutes on the indoor hardcourts at Paris Palais Omnisports. I made it very difficult for Grigor, said Murray. I hardly made any mistakes at all throughout the match. The win cemented Murrays spot in the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London in two weeks. He could face world No. 1 star Novak Djokovic on Friday. Murray is fresh off his title in Valencia, has won two straight and three of his last five tournaments overall, and riding an 11-match winning streak. A Day 4 upset came when 14th-seeded South African Kevin Anderson took out third-seeded Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka 6-7 (2-7), 7-5, 7-6 (7-3). The 6-foot-8 Anderson will face 2005 Paris Masters titlist Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals. Four other stars avoided upsets, as fourth-seeded David Ferrer drilled fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco 6-1, 6-2; a fifth-seeded Berdych handled 12th- seeded Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 7-5, 6-3; sixth-seeded U.S. Open runner-up Kei Nishikori held off 10th-seeded French favorite and former Paris Masters champion and former runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 4-6, 6-4; and seventh- seeded Milos Raonic tackled 11th seed Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 7-5, 7-6 (9-7). Ferrer titled here two years ago and was last years Paris Masters runner- up to the two-time titlist Djokovic. The Spaniards quarterfinal opponent will be Nishikori. This marks the final tournament of the regular season on the ATP World Tour. JJ Redick Jersey . - Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard has signed with WME-IMG, saying the sports management powerhouse will help maximize the value of my brand. Cheap Swingman 76ers Jerseys . Napoli beat high-flying Hellas Verona 3-0 to keep up the pressure on the top two while AC Milan had another disappointing night as four goals from teenage forward Domenico Berardi saw relegation-threatened Sassuolo come back from two goals down to win 4-3.NYON, Switzerland - Five-time European champion Liverpool, Monaco, Roma and four other clubs face further UEFA probes for overspending on player transfers and wages.UEFAs club financial control panel also opened cases against six more clubs, the European football body said Friday.The clubs had disclosed a break-even deficit on the basis of their financial reporting periods ending in 2012 and 2013, UEFA said.The clubs must provide updated accounts through February as part of monitoring of all Champions League and Europa League entrants to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.Four of the initial seven clubs investigated — Liverpool, Monaco, Roma and Sporting Lisbon — are in contention to qualify for the Champions League knockout stage next week.The other three — three-time European champion Inter Milan, Besiktas, and Krasnodar — are playing in the second-tier Europa League.All seven have attended club hearings with the financial monitoring panel, UEFA said.The six new cases of clubs who must show they are approaching break-even on football trading are Europa League clubs Sparta Prague, Hull, Lyon, Panathinaikos, Ruch Chorzow and Wolfsburg.UEFA introduced the FFP project in 2011 to curb overspending on player transfers and wages.Though UEFAs most severe sanction iis exclusion from the Champions League, clubs typically face fines and limits on player registration for first offences. Joel Embiid Jersey. UEFA currently allows wealthy club owners to cover a maximum of 45 million euros ($55 million) of losses on their football-related business since 2011 with a one-off equity payment.The FFP rules encourage clubs to spend freely on stadiums, infrastructure projects and youth training without those costs counting in the break-even assessment.UEFA claims the rules championed by its President Michel Platini are having the intended effect.Aggregate losses reported by Europes top-tier clubs in the 2013 financial year have gone down to 800 million euros ($984 million) from a record-reported deficit of 1.7 billion euros ($2.1 billion) in 2011, UEFA said in a statement Friday.Still, the project is criticized for protecting traditionally elite clubs — with greater global fan and sponsor bases — from challenges by emerging clubs with wealthy new owners.In the first round of FFP sanctions in May, the two main victims were Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, the champions of England and France.Both clubs have recently soared in status, fuelled by big spending by owners from the ruling families of Abu Dhabi and Qatar, respectively. Cheap Brewers Jerseys Cheap Twins Jerseys Cheap Mets Jerseys Cheap Yankees Jerseys Cheap Athletics Jerseys Cheap Phillies Jerseys Cheap Pirates Jerseys Cheap Padres Jerseys Cheap Giants Jerseys Cheap Mariners Jerseys Cheap Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Rays Jerseys Cheap Rangers Jerseys Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
