MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany -- David Silvas sole strike before the break was enough for Manchester City to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League with a 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach on Wednesday.Both sides finished with 10 men as `Gladbach captain Lars Stindl and City defender Fernandinho were both shown their second yellow cards for tactical fouls in the second half.The draw took City to eight points in Group C, four behind Barcelona, which qualified with a 2-0 win at Celtic. City will finish second due to its head-to-head record against Moenchengladbach, which is three points behind and assured of Europa League participation in third place. Celtic is last with two points.You have to also stay grounded. Were very happy to have secured third place from a very complicated game, Moenchengladbach coach Andre Schubert said. Its an important step for us.His side had been struggling of late, winless in its last four games including the disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Celtic, but it started well in front of its vocal home fans.Fabian Johnson tried his luck before Stindl shrugged off John Stones and cut the ball back for Raffael to blast past the despairing Claudio Bravo midway through the half. It was the Brazilians first Champions League goal of the season and a deserved lead for the home side.Back in Germany following his summer move from Borussia Dortmund, Ilkay Gundogan drew a fine save from Moenchengladbach `keeper Yann Sommer as City sought a response.Oscar Wendt then surged past two defenders at the other end only for Bravo to come to the visitors rescue.City finished the half strongly. Sergio Aguero should have equalized when he shot too close to Sommer, but there was still time before the break for Silva to poke home Kevin De Bruynes cross from close range after Raheem Sterling sent the Belgian through on the right.Sterling had another goal ruled out after the break, just before Stindl was sent off for a shoulder-block on Nicolas Otamendi.Citys numerical advantage was canceled when Fernandinho was shown his second yellow for a foul on Raffael in the 63rd.Silva had another goal ruled out for offside but there were few complaints with a draw suiting both sides.Were just happy that were through to the last 16, De Bruyne said.

TORONTO -- Retired tennis star Pete Sampras thinks the Wimbledon mens singles record he shares with Roger Federer is safe for the foreseeable future. "I dont know if someone in the next 10 years will be able to win five or six Wimbledons," Sampras said on a conference call Monday ahead of next months visit to Toronto for his induction into the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame. Sampras, who will also play in the Rogers Legends Cup, and Federer each have seven singles wins at the All England Club. Scotlands Andy Murray won his first Wimbledon title earlier this month. "This was Andys time, it was Andys event to go and get and he did it," said Sampras. "Hes definitely the man to beat at the U.S. Open." Murray is currently ranked No. 2 in the world behind Novak Djokovic, with David Ferrer at No. 3, Rafael Nadal at No. 4 and Federer at No. 5. "I think the biggest thing for me is Murray in the past 12 months has just stepped up," Sampras said. But he doesnt see anyone being able to conquer Wimbledons grass courts the way he and Federer did. "Roger and myself, our game on grass was so ... dominant," Sampras said. "I think Murray can win some more and Djokovic, but I dont think that dominaant game is out there thats going to win it seven times.dddddddddddd "But I could be wrong." Of course, there is always the possibility Federer could add another. After his second-round loss at Wimbledon this year, he switched to a larger-faced racket to try and improve his game. "I dont know where his heads at, whether hes going to stick with it," said Sampras, who switched to a similar racket after he retired. Sampras says it helped his backhand and provided more power on the serve. "I wish I would have tried it, at least a little bit on the clay, when I was playing," he said. "It would have helped me a little bit." As for Canadas top-ranked mens singles player right now, Milos Raonic, Sampras says he has what it takes to win a major but it takes time to get there. "Hes got a huge game and a monster serve and he competes well, he does everything really, really well. Its just a matter of getting experience, putting yourself out there against the best players in the world," said Sampras. "Its just a matter of getting over that next hurdle. "Maybe hes got to work a little harder, maybe hes got to push a little more, its such a physical game today." ' ' '
