BARCELONA, Spain -- Top-ranked Rafael Nadals clay-court struggles worsened Friday as his 41-match winning streak at the Barcelona Open ended with a three-set loss to Nicolas Almagro in the quarterfinals. Nadal was looking for his ninth title in Barcelona but lost 2-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4, a week after going out in the quarterfinals of the Monte Carlo Masters to David Ferrer. Nadal, widely considered the greatest clay-court player of all time, hadnt lost in Barcelona since his debut as a 15-year-old in 2003, although he missed the tournament in 2010. He had not dropped a set here since the 2008 final. The 20th-ranked Almagro converted his second match point, smashing a forehand down the line for his first career victory over his fellow Spaniard on the 11th try. "I had a lot of opportunities in the second set," Nadal said. "I didnt take advantage of break points, so credit goes to him." After failing to convert any of his five break points in the second set, Nadal missed a return in the tiebreaker to give Almagro a 6-5 lead. Almagro followed up with a crosscourt forehand winner to level the match and end Nadals streak of 44 straight sets at the tournament. Both players were steady on serve until an exchange of breaks made it 4-4 in the third, and Nadal then sent a shot long to be broken again and give Almagro a chance to serve for the match. Nadal set up two straight chances to break back, but hit a forehand long and then sent a smash into the net with Almagro out of position. Nadal then saved the first match point when Almagros backhand flew wide. But Almagro used a serve-and-volley to save a third break point of the game before Nadals long return set up the second match point. Nadal hadnt been eliminated this early in back-to-back clay-court tournaments since 2004, when as an 18-year-old he also failed to get past the quarterfinals in Stuttgart and Bastad. "This is an important win for my career," said Almagro, who celebrated wildly. Almagro will face Santiago Giraldo in Saturdays semifinals after Philipp Kohlschreiber retired with an injury while trailing 6-4, 4-3. Earlier, Kei Nishikori of Japan and Ernests Gulbis of Latvia overpowered opponents to set up a semifinal meeting. The fourth-seeded Nishikori continued his good run since returning from a groin injury with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Marin Cilic of Croatia, while the ninth-seeded Gulbis dismissed Teymuraz Gabashvili of Russia 6-1, 6-4. Gulbis saved all five break points against Gabashvili, who had knocked out the fifth-ranked Ferrer. Kurt Zouma Jersey .

Thats how the Ravens won when Ryan was their defensive co-ordinator from 2005-08, and that is precisely the formula Baltimore used to beat Ryans New York Jets on Sunday.OTTAWA - A U.S.-based hockey equipment manufacturer has agreed to stop making claims that create the impression that one of its hockey helmets offers protection from concussions, the Competition Bureau said Thursday.The federal regulator said Bauer Hockey Corp.s claims made in advertisements for the RE-AKT helmet were not supported by adequate testing, a finding the company said it did not agree with.The company will also donate $500,000 worth of equipment to a Canadian charity that supports youth participation in sport and pay $40,000 toward the cost of the bureaus investigation, the agency said.The bureau takes representations to the public about performance claims that are not based on prior adequate and proper testing very seriously, particularly when they relate to the health and safety of consumers, Matthew Boswell, senior deputy commissioner of competition, said in a statement.Bauer said it never claimed that its helmets protect against concussions.Their issue was (that) there was no standardized tests, spokesman Steve Jones said in a telephone interview from the companys headquarters in Exeter, N.H. So, our testing couldnt be benchmarked with a standard test. Thats where really the crux of the issue lies.Jones said Bauer will be first in line to follow any new protocol developed by the Canadian Standards Association or the Hockey Equipment Certification Council.Rich Wuerthele, Bauers executive vice-president, said it was time to move on.While we disagree with the bureaus conclusions regarding the testing conducted by and on behalf of Bauer Hockey, we look forward to putting this matter behind us and continuing to provide our customers with the best products possible.ddddddddddddConcussion in hockey and other sports has been a hot topic for the past few years. A panel of international experts, led by Dr. Willem Meeuwisse of the University of Calgary, said last year that concussion is one of the most complex injuries to diagnose and treat, and understanding of it is constantly evolving.Dr. Paul Echlin, a concussion expert who has conducted extensive research on the injury, says changing the way the games are played is the only way to eliminate or substantially reduce trauma.Thats the fundamental change, not building bigger and better helmets, he said from Burlington, Ont., where he runs a sports medicine clinic.The bureau said that current hockey helmet testing standards are aimed at protecting players from catastrophic brain injuries, such as skull fractures, not concussions.Bauer has agreed to remove or modify the remaining performance claims from all RE-AKT marketing material, including packaging and online advertising as well as implement an enhanced corporate compliance program, and take steps to ensure retailers do not make the performance claims, the bureau said.The company said the RE-AKT helmet, which costs about $200 for a basic model, represents less than five per cent of its overall hockey helmet sales in Canada. Bauer is part of Performance Sports Group (TSX:PSG), which also includes Maverik Lacrosse, Mission Roller Hockey, Cascade Helmets, Easton, jersey maker Inaria and Combat, a maker of baseball and softball gear.— By Abdul Latheef in Toronto.
