ATP Rome QF 🇮🇹
Novak Djokovic d Stefanos Tsitsipas 4-6 7-5 7-5
The world no 1 was slow to start as the Greek God quickly took the set 6-4 and was up a break 2-1 until the rain delay. The momentum shifted as it usually does after a break, and Djokovic was able to break back to make it 4-4 in the second set. Djokovic broke Tsitsipas to make it 7-5 and to start the 3rd set Djokovic's serve.
Tsitsipas was serving for the match 5-4 up but Djokovic, being one of the best returners of serve, was able to break twice to win the 3rd set 7-5.
Rafael Nadal d Alexander Zverev 6-3 6-4
With Zverev winning the last match between the two exactly one week ago, Rafa was determined to make it right. He played a very solid QF, only being broken once, to win the match straight forward.
Reilly Opelka d Federico Delbonis 7-5 7-6(2)
The American continued to dominate the tournament. Though closer, it was a continued theme that the big servers out-do the clay courters.
Lorenzo Sonego d Andrey Rublev 3-6 6-4 6-3
The Italian crowd brought Sonego home again! A great match by two grinders on the court.
