LONDON -- His lead slipping away, Andy Murray needed a little something extra to keep him going in the fifth set. Jordan 13 Cheap China .He found it in the fans. And in himself.The second-seeded Murray absorbed everything he could from the Centre Court faithful, using their screams and cheers to help him hold off Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 (10), 6-1, 3-6, 4-6, 6-1 and advance to the Wimbledon semifinals for the seventh time.Thats why its important to try to use the crowd, if you can, to your advantage, because they do make a difference, said Murray, who has now won six straight five-set matches. In long matches, tough matches, even if its half a percent difference, its good.Murray won the title at Wimbledon in 2013, becoming the first British man to win at the All England Club since Fred Perry in 1936. But he hasnt won a major since, losing in the finals of both the Australian Open and French Open this year.The man he lost to in both of those finals, Novak Djokovic, has been eliminated from Wimbledon. But Murray still has to beat Tomas Berdych in Fridays semifinals to have a chance at a second Wimbledon title on Sunday against either Roger Federer or Milos Raonic.The tough test against Tsonga can only help.I think it can give you a bit of confidence. It can help to go through games and stages in matches that are challenging, Murray said. If youre in that position in the next couple of matches, you know youve been there.On Wednesday, Murray won a tough first set against Tsonga and then easily took the second. But just as it appeared that Murray was going to cruise into the semifinals yet again, his French opponent started to turn things around.Tsonga saved three break points while trailing 4-3 in the fourth set. That was part of a four-game run that allowed him to force a final set. And not only did Tsonga have all the momentum, but he also was 6-0 at Wimbledon for his career in five-setters. So when he held a break point in the opening game, things were looking bleak for Murray.Id missed a couple of poor shots in that game, especially on the 30-all point. Missed a ball that was almost inside the service box, Murray said. Obviously to get that hold and just be ahead, again, was big.Murray is now 3-0 against Tsonga at Wimbledon. He also beat the big Frenchman in the 2010 quarterfinals and the 2012 semifinals. Overall, Murray leads Tsonga 13-2, including 12 of the last 13 dating back to 2009.The finish line was far tonight, Tsonga said. I came back strong on the third and fourth, but I didnt play well in the fifth.Murray did play well at the end, with a little help from the crowd. Discount Air Jordan 13 .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Jordan 13 For Sale Cheap Real .

MARSEILLE, France -- Portugal likes to leave it late at this European Championship, whether Cristiano Ronaldo is having a good game or not.The Portuguese have been level after 90 minutes in every game this tournament, a run that continued Thursday as Ronaldo and his teammates drew 1-1 with Poland after extra time, before advancing to the semifinals with a 5-3 victory on penalties.With Ronaldo once again far from his best, two of the Real Madrid stars supporting cast stepped up.Eighteen-year-old Renato Sanches, Portugals youngest ever starter at a European Championship, scored the equalizer and took man-of-the-match honors with his smart movement and neat footwork.Then substitute Ricardo Quaresma struck the winning penalty in the shootout, five days after he scored an extra-time winner against Croatia in another late show by the Portuguese in the round of 16.Quaresma fired his spot-kick past Lukasz Fabianski to line up a match against either Wales or Belgium in Lyon on Wednesday, securing Portugals fourth semifinal at the last five European Championships.It was enormous pressure. I had an entire country in my hands, Quaresma said. I knew it was going to be a goal.Poland winger Jakub Blaszczykowski had come into the match at the Stade Velodrome as his teams top scorer. But he had a poor game and saw his penalty saved one-handed by Rui Patricio, allowing Quaresma to finish the job with the very next kick in front of a stand packed with Polish fans.Last week, Ronaldo had lived up to his star billing by scoring twice in a 3-3 draw with Hungary, with Portugal needing second half goals in its final group game to secure a place in the last 16. For Ronaldo, it was a rare moment of excellence at Euro 2016.On Thursday, he was back to squandering chances and misplacing his passes, leaving midfielder Sanches to step up and score Portugals equalizer in the first half. The teenager was his teams main attacking threat for much of the game.Its wonderful for the team, for me as well for scoring the goal, Sanches said. People criticize us, but we dont care because in the end were in the semis.Earlier, Poland striker Robert Lewandowski had put his team in front with the quickest goal of the tournament, scoring inside two minutes.Portugal right-back Cedric Soares misjudged a cross-field ball, allowing Kamil Grosicki to break into space on the left flank and send in a low cross for Lewandowski to convert with a first-time shot.Polands lead lasted until the 33rd minute, when Sanches lit up the game.The youngster, who has just been signed by Bayern Munich, cut in from the righht and passed to Nani, who sent it back immediately with a neat backheel. Jordan 13 Retro Cheap. . Sanches then unleashed a powerful shot from the edge of the area that took a deflection off Grzegorz Krychowiak on its way past the outstretched Fabianski.Despite becoming the third-youngest scorer in European Championship history, Sanches played down his goal, calling it simply a move that just turned out that way and I scored. He also volunteered to take a penalty in the shootout and scored with a confident strike into the top-left corner.The match might have been settled in regulation time if Ronaldo hadnt missed a golden opportunity in the 85th minute. He beat the Polish offside trap with a perfectly timed run, but completely missed the ball as he tried to convert a bouncing pass from Joao Moutinho.The Real Madrid star missed another good chance early in extra time when he failed to control the ball in front of goal. The errors meant he has yet to match Michel Platinis all-time record at European Championships of nine goals. However, Ronaldo did score with Portugals opening penalty of the shootout.After the game, Ronaldo threw away his captains armband in frustration.Defeat ends Polands best run at a European Championship.Its painful, Lewandowski said. Football is a very brutal competition.Poland had never won a game in its two previous appearances at European Championships and finished last in its group as a co-host of Euro 2012.Before the tournament, in Poland they didnt expect that wed get to the quarterfinals, Lewandowski added. We have played so defensively sometimes, but weve had a good result.Poland -- which conceded just two goals all tournament -- had chances to win the game in the second half, notably when Patricio stopped a diving header from Lewandowski.However, the Poles also came within centimeters of scoring an own-goal in the 81st when Pepes pass for Ronaldo was cut out by left-back Artur Jedrzejczyk, whose sliding challenge sent the ball narrowly wide of his own post.Midfielder William Carvalho has started the last three games for Portugal but will miss the semifinal thanks to a second booking of the tournament.Both teams face sanctions from UEFA for pyrotechnic use by their fans, while play was briefly stopped in extra time by a fan who ran onto the pitch before being overcome by police. He wore a green shirt and it was not immediately clear whether he was a fan of either team.---Mike Corder contributed to this report. ' ' '
