Tennis won :), a great victory for the Japanese warrior! It's another good week for Nishikori.

Milos was the better player by far in the first set, i have to admit that.

play was fairly even in the 2nd set, both were untouchable on serve

kei got the early mb, traded it back and then got it again and held on.

as a kei fan im very happy and relieved

Nishikori did not play well. But was clutch at crucial points. Raonic was GOATing on some of the serve returns and was in ballbashing mode. Pheww!! Hopefully, Nishikori raises his game tomorrow. :)

Raonic really evidently lacking in consistency and mental strength when he's put under pressure by a top player. Needs to work out the kinks if he's planning on going any further in the rankings.

Kei didn't really get out of 2nd gear and wasn't exceptional. But definitely the better of two right now.

You have to be encouraged in a way as Milos actually outplayed an in-form player in Kei throughout the match. His game still makes things very difficult on Nishikori. But what was with the chokes in big spots? The match was there for the taking and he didn't get it done.

Hope he can take something positive from that and move forward in Rome because he's still playing quite well overall. Also hope the shoulder thing is nothing to worry about.
