I have to be clinical Murray will be ready

LONDON -- Alexander Gustafsson handed Jimi Manuwa his first MMA defeat in the main event of the UFC Fight Night card at Saturday night at O2 Arena. David Backes USA Jersey . Gustafsson controlled the first round after getting top position on a throw, and came out much more forcefully in the second, buckling Manuwa with a Muay Thai knee, and finishing him off with strikes on the ground. "I was so glad to get a decision because my last couple of fights have gone the distance," the Swede said. "Jimi Manuwa is a tough, powerful fighter, so my strategy was to try and wear him down a bit and drain that power. I got grazed a couple of times and you could definitely feel how hard he can throw. I want Jon Jones next; I cant wait to have another chance at him." Michael Johnson unanimously outpointed Melvin Guillard. Johnson landed a left hook and a kneelift in the second round, in the best of the limited action. "I wasnt going to leave myself exposed, so I fought a smart fight," Johnson said. "Ive got the best stand-up in this division, and Im willing to show that against anybody." While Brad Pickett hit four slams on Neil Seery, but struggled to land significant strikes or submission attempts from top position, and certainly lost out in the kickboxing battle. Still, the judges decided that "One Punch" was the more dominant fighter overall, and unanimously awarded him the victory. Swedens Gunnar Nelson kicked off the main card with a commanding performance against Russias Omari Akhmedov, making him tap out with a guillotine choke. Jimmy Howard USA Jersey . 11 Ana Ivanovic and American Sloane Stephens, and former world No. Derek Stepan Jersey . 1 and reigning champion Caroline Wozniacki was among Thursdays third-round winners, while second- seeded Victoria Azarenka pulled out of the draw at the $4.Andy Murray will be more determined than ever to continue his winning momentum when he takes on Milos Raonic on Saturday afternoon for a place in the ATP World Tour Final at Londons O2 Arena. While the tennis world will see the giant Canadian as a stepping stone to a blockbuster showdown with Novak Djokovic for the prize of year-end No 1 ranking, Murray will be too aware of the dangers Raonic possesses.

To finish it on another high, he must repeat this years Wimbledon and Queens final triumphs against the big-serving Raonic. Andy Murray crushed Stan Wawrinka to reach the ATP World Tour semi-finals The Scot has won all their five meetings in 2016 while Raonic has won only three of their previous 11 meetings, but his last victory came against Murray at Indian Wells two years ago. Since then, Murray has been on a roll, winning their next seven clashes.Murray said of another meeting: I think hes played very well so far in this event. It will be tough, hes got a huge serve. Obviously, Im looking forward to playing him. Its an amazing stadium, an amazing atmosphere. Murray makes O2 semi-finals Andy Murray beats Stan Wawrinka at ATP World Tour Finals to reach semi-finals But Raonic believes he can win the mental battle, saying: I think the one thing that I might have is how much he has really on his shoulders right now: a lot of consecutive matches and what he is playing for.I have to try to do my best to try to accentuate that as much as possible in my own favour, so I can really get the most out of myself and hopefully be able to get on top of him for once this year.Sky Sports tennis analyst Leif Shiras feels Raonic is a real danger to Murrays hopes with a huge serve and powerful groundstrokes.On an indoor hardcourt, I think the conditions suit Raonics game really well so Andy Murray will have to play well.Raonics last success against Murray came in the fourth round of Indian Wells in 2014 when he came from a set down to win in three as the Scots game collapsed. Raonics last success against Murray came in Indian Wells two years ago After the match, Murray admitted he was low on confidence and concerned about his form after dropping his serve twice in the deciding set.To get broken two consecutive times in that situation isnt good enough, he said. I played poor tennis at that stage. I didnt make enough balls and missed easy shots.Later that year, they met again, but this time at Londons O2 Arena in a round-robin encounter, a game Murray won in straight sets. They last faced each other at the ATP World Tour Finals back in 2014 They faced each other only once in 2015 and it was the Briton who triumphed at the Madrid Masters, recording a 6-4 7-5 victory, although his Canadian opponent was nursing a foot injury. Kyle Palmieri Jersey. Raonic was nursing a foot injury when they faced each other at the Madrid Masters in 2015 In Melbourne, they went head-to-head in the semi-finals. Murray was on the ropes and staring defeat in the face when he conjured up his powers of recovery to come from behind to beat Raonic in five gripping sets to reach his fifth successive Australian Open final.Monte Carlo was the location of their next meeting, but it was the same old story for Raonic as Murray reached the semi-finals of the Masters event after a ruthless 6-2 6-0 win in just over an hour. Murray produced a ruthless display to see off the Canadian in Monte Carlo This summer, Murray famously beat Raonic at Queens Club to lift the trophy for a record fifth time and just a fortnight later they met again in the final at the All England Club.Murray cemented his place in British sporting history with a dazzling 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-2) victory to repeat his triumph of 2013 and claim a third Grand Slam title. World No 1 permutations How the race to end the year top of the rankings shapes up Their last meeting was a semi-final clash at the Cincinnati Masters and once again Murray came out on top to roar into his seventh successive final.The 29-year-old notched his 22nd consecutive win by blunting Raonics intimidating serves.He served a couple of doubles that first game and I managed to get the break, and then had the momentum from there, said Murray. Murray beat Raonic in Cincinnati before the US Open earlier this year They were due to meet in the Paris Masters semi-final just a week ago, but the Scot was handed a walkover and with it, the coveted title of world No 1 after Raonics surprise withdrawal through injury.On Saturday, they will meet once again, and with the 25-year-old 6ft 5in Raonic playing arguably the best tennis of his career, Murray will be wary not to be complacent against the Canadian powerhouse as he eyes a fifth consecutive final.Check our game-by-game coverage from all matches at the ATP World Tour Finals in London - including both semi-finals on Saturday - on skysports.com/tennis, our app for mobile devices and iPad and our Twitter account @skysportstennis.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!
