Well, Milos just got demolished in that second set, and Zverev wasn't even playing that good.

Some random guy just watching tennis.

Rome QF Zverev def. Raonic 7-6(7-4) 6-1

did not expect a breadstick in the 2nd set. zverev was the better player through the first set. probably shouldnt have needed a tiebreaker but he got it done in the end.

Raonic was stunningly bad, don't remember a worse performance from a top 10 player tbh.

Wow, Zverev finally does something impressive and collects a big scalp in a M1000 tournament.
That being said, Raonic is so terrible. If he can't find a good serving day he just goes away.

:thinking:

Raonic was goddamn awful, Zverev just marginally better. Returning from Mars did the job for him, Raonic did hardly put any balls into court.

Awful match, it's the last time I trust that Canadian mug in actually thinking he would play consistent tennis over the course of the entire tournament.

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Zverev should have won the 1st set without TB, but he choked on serve, Raonic just wasn´t there today

Congrats Zverev for the 1st masters SF!, he will have a fairly good chance for the final too, amazing

the 2nd set was some of the worst tennis i have ever seen raonic play, it has to be said. im not sure if he put 100% in or what but that was just awful.

its the result i expected in the end but not this score

And all that good form in his first two matches this week goes down the drain.

More UEs is each set alone that both of those matches combined. 6 DFs, half of them in one game.
