DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Marin Cilic continued his mastery against American players, beating John Isner 7-6 (5), 6-3 to advance to the finals of the Delray Beach Open. The victory was Cilics 21st straight against American opponents dating to 2008. The seventh-seeded Croat has reached three straight finals for the first time in his career. He beat Tommy Haas to win at Zagreb earlier this month, and then lost to Tomas Berdych at Rotterdam last week. "Its probably the best three weeks Ive played in my life," said Cilic, who reached his 20th career ATP final. "I couldnt be happier. Im enjoying these moments." Isner, the second seed, was trying to reach his second final of the year. He won the title in Auckland in January. The start of the night match was delayed nearly three hours because of rain, not finishing until the early morning Sunday. Cilic will face Kevin Anderson of South Africa in the final. The fourth-seeded Anderson, who won this event in 2012, advanced with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over American qualifier Steve Johnson in the earlier semifinal. Anderson had 13 aces and won 86 per cent of his first-serve points. "Im pleased with the way I executed that part of my game," said Anderson, who has a 7-2 record this year. He was 0-3 in finals last year. Johnson admitted having some nerves playing in his first ATP semifinal. The American had beaten the top-seeded Haas and sixth-seeded Feliciano Lopez to reach the semis. "I definitely was a little uptight in the beginning, but credit (Anderson). He played very well," Johnson said. Ray Lewis Jersey (http://www.cheapravensshoponline.com/Youth-Ray-Lewis-Ravens-Jersey/) . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, it doesnt appear the offer was warmly received by the team. Blue Jackets director of hockey operations John Davidson and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said on Wednesday the team has made offers of $6 million for two years, $32 million for six and $46 million over eight years but each one was refused by the restricted free agent centre and agent Kurt Overhardt.

LONDON -- The revenue generated by football clubs in the Premier League struck a record 2.53 billion pounds ($4.23 billion) in the 2012/13 season as the English topflight remained the world leader. An annual review conducted by consultants Deloitte shows that revenues among the 20 Premier League sides swelled by 165 million pounds, with over 60 per cent of the growth driven by Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool. "Once again the global appeal of the Premier League has continued to drive commercial revenue growth, particularly at the highest ranked Premier League clubs," said Deloitte sports business group partner Dan Jones. "Matchday revenue also increased by 6 per cent with fewer unsold seats at Premier League games than ever before." Jones added that the increasing trend is expected to continue, with the Premier League clubs revenue likely to increase by 30 per cent to 3.2 billion pounds ($5.4 billion) in 2013-14. "This growth will be driven by the revenue from the first season of the Premier Leagues new broadcast deals and further commercial revenue growth at the biggest clubs," he said. According to Deloitte, the 7 per cent increase in Premier League revenues is the largest absolute growth of any of the "big five" leagues. Among those, German clubs generated revenues of 1.7 billion pounds ($2.85 billion) while those in Spain reaped 1.6 billion pounds ($2.68 billion). Italys clubs garnered 1.4 billion pounds ($2.35 billion) while French clubs saw revenues of 1.1 billion pounds ($1.84 billion). Overall, the "big five" saw revenues increase 5 per cent. The majority of the Prremier League revenues growth arose from commercial sources, with the two Manchester clubs accounting for over half of the leagues 129 million pounds ($216 million) commercial revenue increase.dddddddddddd Deloitte noted that the Bundesliga is still ahead of the Premier League by 55 million euros ($75 million) in commercial terms but expects the English league to "comfortably lead Europe" in all three main revenues categories -- matchday, broadcast and commercial in the 2013-14 results. In the year before UEFAs Financial Fair Play rules took effect, over 75 per cent of the Premier League clubs revenue increase was spent on wages, which rose by 125 million pounds to 1.8 billion pounds ($3 billion), as clubs spent in anticipation of the extra revenue from the new broadcast deal in 2013-14. The biggest increase was at Manchester City, with the club spending an extra 31 million pounds ($52 million) compared to the previous year to reach 233 million pounds ($390 million). Though Manchester City remained ahead of its city rival Manchester United in the player cost stakes, United won the 2012/13 Premier League title. City reclaimed the title in the season thats just ended while United sank to seventh. "The pattern in spending on wages following previous increases in broadcast deals, suggests its likely around 60 per cent or more of the revenue increase in 2013-14 will flow through to wages," said Adam Bull, senior consultant in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte. "On that basis, we would expect Premier League total wage costs to reach a new record level of around 2.2 billion pounds ($3.7 billion)."
