NewsCO.com.au–Raonic and Clilic march on in Rome

May 18, 2017

Milos Raonic and Marin Cilic have both produced easy wins to cruise into the last eight of the Italian Open in Rome.

Canadian fifth seed Raonic dispatched Tomas Berdych 6-3 6-3 while the sixth-seeded former US Open winner Cilic of Croatia beat Belgian David Goffin 6-3 6-4.

Germany’s 20-year-old Alexander Zverev, the youngest man in the ATP top 20, lined up a Friday date with Raonic as he broke Italian hearts with his midday defeat of Fabio Fognini 6-3 6-3.

Only 48 hours earlier, the flamboyant and unpredictable Fognini had turned the tournament on its head with his straight-sets knockout of top seed Andy Murray

Fognini did not go down without a fight on his home Court Centrale, arguing with the chair umpire over a line call before taking the loss with 27 unforced errors.

“It was a great match for me, I think I played very well,” No.17 Zverev said.

“I was very aggressive from the baseline.

“Fabio is someone who plays well here. And he beat the world number one a few days ago. I was feeling the ball very well and was very aggressive and it worked out well for me.”
