Djokovic Perseveres To Move Into Rogers Cup SF

Sat, 07/30/2016 - 12:49am

Novak Djokovic survived an up-and-down contest against Tomas Berdych to get a step closer to his fourth Rogers Cup title. The top seed moved past Berdych 7-6(6), 6-4 in front of a packed Friday night crowd on Centre Court at the Aviva Centre in Toronto.

The Serbian next will face Frenchman Gael Monfils, who beat Canada's Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-4. Djokovic is undefeated against Monfils, 11-0.

“He's playing great tennis at the moment. He won Washington. He's been playing more or less every day for the last couple of weeks,” Djokovic said. “He's feeling confident on the court.”

Djokovic advanced to his fifth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 semi-final of the season despite not having his most polished game on the hard courts. The World No. 1 struggled to land his first serve, hitting only half of them for the match. He also more than doubled his winner tally – 14 – with unforced errors – 33.

But Djokovic still led 5-2 in the first set before Berdych climbed back into the match. The Czech even had three set points at 6/3 in the first-set tie-break, including two on his racquet. But Berdych double faulted and lost the next point on his serve, and Djokovic escaped with the opening set.

It marked the 13th consecutive set Djokovic had won against Berdych. The Czech last claimed a set against Djokovic in the 2015 Monte-Carlo final.

At 1-all in the second set, Berdych was serving up 40/15 before he donated another double fault – he finished with four – and appeared rattled. Three unforced errors later, the top seed had the only break of the set he would need.

“I was very fortunate to get away with the first set,” Djokovic said. “The second set was slightly better... but I'm moving on and hopefully it's going to get better.”

Djokovic now leads their FedEx ATP Head2Head series 25-2. He has advanced to the final in 13 of his past 14 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments.

Nishikori Moves Into Final Four At Rogers Cup

Third seed Kei Nishikori withstood a mid-match surge from Grigor Dimitrov to advance into the semi-finals on Friday at the Rogers Cup, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2.

Next up for Nishikori is second seed Stan Wawrinka, a winner earlier in the day over Kevin Anderson. Wawrinka leads their FedEx ATP Head2Head rivalry 3-1, but they haven’t played each other since the quarter-finals of the 2015 Australian Open.

"I know I have to be a little bit more aggressive to beat him," said Nishikori. "I think if I can play good tennis, I think I will have some chance to win. So hopefully I can have a good day tomorrow."

Nishikori struck first in the opening set by breaking Dimitrov to love to go up 3-2, then grabbed another break at 5-3 to clinch a one-set lead. But Dimitrov refused to go away quietly, immediately breaking his opponent to start the second set. Nishikori was unable to take advantage of five break points throughout the set while Dimitrov made the most of his limited opportunities, breaking the third seed once more at 5-3 to take his first set off Nishikori in their three career meetings.

Just when it appeared Dimitrov would score the upset, Nishikori responded by going on a five-game run in the deciding set, breaking the Bulgarian twice to race to a 5-1 lead. The Japanese star comfortably closed out the match on serve at 5-2, improving his FedEx ATP Head2Head rivalry with Dimitrov to 3-0.

"I tried to be a little more aggressive," Nishikori said of the turnaround in the second game of the third set. "I didn't do it in the second set, and beginning of the third set I didn't do it. So I took a little bit more risk and tried to be more aggressive and hit and come in sometimes. I knew I was struggling with his slice a little bit, so I tried to move my feet and everything worked well after that game."

Making his fifth appearance in Canada, Nishikori has matched his best result at the Rogers Cup in reaching the semi-finals last year. He’s looking to reach his third ATP World Tour Masters 1000 final and second of 2016, having finished as runner-up at the Miami Open presented by Itau (l. Djokovic).

Second seed Stan Wawrinka will attempt to reach his fourth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 final on Saturday at the Rogers Cup against third seed Kei Nishikori.

Wawrinka overcame former World No. 10 Kevin Anderson 6-1, 6-3 in 74 minutes on Friday in their third match on Canadian soil (Wawrinka leads 2-1).

“It was a really good match,” said Wawrinka. “I started really well from the first game. It showed me that I was ready, aggressive [and] moving really well. It's one of the best matches I have played this year, I think. I was calm, serving really good and mixing it up a lot. I'm moving well, in general. I think I was reading the game well, good in defence and found a way how to come back and attack.”

Wawrinka got off to a perfect start by opening up a 4-0 lead against Anderson, who endured a 10-week injury layoff earlier in the season. The Swiss star broke for a third time to seal the 30-minute opener and, in a competitive second set, converted his second break point opportunity for a 5-3 advantage. Wawrinka hit 14 winners and lost only five of his first service points.

Anderson, who underwent minor ankle surgery on 15 March, is now 0-7 lifetime in ATP World Tour Masters 1000 quarter-finals. Wawrinka is now 31-10 on the season, hunting for his 15th ATP World Tour title.

Raonic, Djokovic, Wawrinka Headline Toronto QF Line-Up

Fri, 07/29/2016 - 8:21am

Second seed Stan Wawrinka and former World No. 10 Kevin Anderson will renew their FedEx ATP Head 2 Head rivalry to begin the Rogers Cup quarter-finals on Friday. Wawrinka, the World No. 5, is 4-4 overall, 3-3 in ATP Masters 1000 events and 1-1 at the Rogers Cup against Anderson. The Swiss defeated the South African at Montréal in 2011 before Anderson avenged himself at Toronto in 2014. Anderson, now ranked 34th, is attempting to reach his first career ATP Masters 1000 semi-final (0-6 in QFs) and snap a six-match losing streak in ATP World Tour quarter-finals overall.

The winner of Wawrinka vs. Anderson will advance to face either No. 3 seed Kei Nishikori or former World No. 8 Grigor Dimitrov. Now No. 40, Dimitrov is at his lowest mark in the Emirates ATP Rankings since he was No. 41 during the week of February 11, 2013. The 25-year-old Bulgarian is bidding for his first ATP Masters 1000 semi-final appearance since defeating Anderson to reach the Toronto ‘Final Four’ two years ago. Nishikori, on the other hand, advanced to the final at Miami and semi-finals at Madrid and Rome in ATP Masters 1000 events earlier this season.

Back in the Rogers Cup quarter-finals for the ninth time in 10 years is World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. The three-time champion owns a 24-2 FedEx ATP Head 2 Head record against his opponent Friday, No. 5 seed Tomas Berdych. Djokovic has won his last 11 meetings with Berdych and all 20 of their hard-court matches. However, the Serbian and Czech have never played in Toronto or Montréal. Berdych, who has ended six straight years at No. 6 or No. 7, has lost 16 straight matches against Top 5 opponents and 12 straight versus the World No. 1 (4-28 vs. World No. 1 overall).

Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic caps Friday’s schedule when he plays former World No. 7 Gael Monfils for the third time in a quarter-final this season. The No. 1 Canadian swept Monfils on the hard courts of the Australian Open and ATP Masters 1000 Indian Wells. After a virus limited him on clay and grass, Monfils captured the biggest title of his career last week at an ATP World Tour 500 hard-court event in Washington. With three more victories in Toronto this week, the 10th-seeded Frenchman is riding a personal-best eight-match win streak into his meeting with the No. 4 seed.
