Rome SF: Novak Djokovic def. Milos Raonic 6-7(5), 7-6(4), 6-3

The only reason Novak struggled so much it's because of the wrist and Raonic ball bashing every ball.
He was shaking his wrist during the match, I saw him doing that a few times.


At least he did the job, Raonic in a clay final would have been one of the most embarrassing moments in tennis history.

Grinded down Hopefully the wrist is okay.

Lord knows I despise Fakervic, a truly detestable individual, but at least the guy has some balls. Murray is a pussy whipped man-child, an embarrassment to the human race and living proof that evolution isn't all that it is made out to be. If he had any dignity he would retire now rather than face further humiliation.

Raonic won't play any better than this on clay. Ever. Yet he wasn't able to win. Some choking involved from Djokovic in the 1st but at least he got it done in style

Another masters final and undefeated in Rome semifinals

He must improve for tomorrow though

Raonic improved a lot, but mentally still not strong enough. Gifting Djoker too many free points in the 2nd set TB cost him the match.
Djoker performed like a pushing mug. No serve, no forehand, no backhand DTL, just pushing. Now dull has a much bigger chance of winning Rome if he does not play another 3 hours with Dimitrov tonight.

Raonic had his chances in the second set. Wasted them and paid the price.

Re: Rome SF: Djokovic def. Raonic 6-7(5) 7-6(4) 6-3

i can only comment on what i saw but it seems djokovic was only at about 75%..maybe less. Milos played better on clay than i've seen him.

thank god djokovic got through though because this wasnt raonic's normal clay level and him making the final of a masters event on clay would have been a disaster.
