Default 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.

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.

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.
