    KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. [b]Kenny Golladay Jersey[/b] . -- Canadian Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic lost 6-4, 7-6(4) to Americans Jack Sock and Ryan Harrison in a mens doubles quarterfinal at the Sony Open on Wednesday. The young American pair put out the match-tough, sixth-seeded veterans in 73 minutes as Nestor and Zimonjic let opportunities slip. Nestor suffered disappointment at the tournament for a second consecutive year following an exit in the 2013 second round. Nestor and former partner Max Mirnyi played in the final at the event in 2011 and 2012. Nestor, from Toronto, won the 2002 title with Mark Knowles of the Bahamas. Zimonjic began the match well enough with a love game but also lost his serve in the ninth game as Sock and Harrison took a 5-4 lead before serving out the first set in 27 minutes. The second set went into a tiebreaker as Nestor and Zimonjic tried to recover only to go down to the loss. "There were some service games in the first set where we gave them too many chances," Nestor said. "We didnt do a lot and they took advantage. "There are days like this when you dont come out sharp or the other guys start getting more confidence and go for their shots more. "They were playing well today. All opponent are tough, we knew what to expect. But some days you are mentally sharp and ready to play -- other days not so much, like today." Nestor will next play on clay at Monte Carlo in mid-April.

[b]Will Harris Youth Jersey[/b] . -- Ryan Millers debut for the St.ALBANY, N.Y. -- Oneida Indian officials who oppose the Redskins nickname as a slur will meet with NFL officials next week in New York City, a tribe spokesman said Friday. The meeting agreed to by NFL officials earlier this month is scheduled for Wednesday in New York City, Oneida Indian Nation spokesman Brett Stagnitti told The Associated Press. The upstate New York tribe and its leader Ray Halbritter became prominent critics of the teams name after funding a "Change the Mascot" radio ad campaign and a symposium in Washington on the harmful effects of the nickname. Halbritter, whose tribe runs a large casino resort in Verona in central New York, says the name is degrading and has devastating effects, especially on younger Indians. The tribe began pushing for a name change recently as the Washington Redskins faced fresh waves of criticism over their nickname. [b]Austin Bryant Womens Jersey[/b]. Even President Barack Obama weighed in, saying recently he would "think about changing" the name if he owned the team. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said senior league executives will attend next weeks meeting, but he didnt know if Commissioner Roger Goodell will be among them. Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder has said he will never change the teams name and Goodell has said that it is ultimately Snyders call. In a letter to season-ticket holders this month, Snyder said he respected the feelings of those offended by the name, but wrote "I hope such individuals also try to respect what the name means, not only for all of us in the extended Washington Redskins family, but among Native Americans too."
