Rome: Nadal to Face Djokovic in Men’s Final: Serena Williams Plays Errani for Women’s Title

 

 

(May 17, 2014) The singles finals are set in Rome on Sunday for the Italian Open. On the men’s side No. 1 Rafael Nadal will play No. 2 Novak Djokovic while top women’s player Serena Williams will face off against Italian Sara Errani.

Nadal faced little competition in his semifinal clash defeating Grigor Dimitrov 6-2, 6-2. It was the first match this week in which the Spaniard was not pushed to three sets.

“Today was a good confirmation that I really played better.  A lot of positive things,” Nadal said in press. “(Djokovic) is playing great and it’s going to be a really tough match.”

Djokovic was pushed to three set by the hard-serving Canadian Milos Raonic 6-7 (5), 7-6 (4), 6-3.

“I can’t recall the last time when I was feeling so helpless in the return games,” Djokovic said of Raonic’s powerful serves. “It was brutal.”

The Serbian made an appeal for help for his home country hit by severe floods. “This is a total catastrophe of biblical proportions,” he said. “Half the country is in danger of not having electricity.”

Foe those wishing to help with a contribution to the relief and rescue efforts: Novak Djokovic Foundation’s website.

Nadal leads his head-to-head record against Djokovic 22-18. Nadal is looking for his eight Italian Open title while Djokovic is seeking his third. Both men last played each other in late March in the Sony Open final where Djokovic won.

Serena Williams recovered from losing the second set to stop Ana Ivanovic 6-1, 3-6, 6-1. The win for Williams avenged a loss to the Serbian in the round of 16 at this year’s Australian Open. Williams is seeking a third Italian Open title, but she’ll have to beat an Italian to get it.

“She’s just taken her game to a whole new level and she has so much confidence beating two really good top-10 players and two really great clay-court players,” Williams said about Errani. “So I have a lot of work to do tomorrow. It’s not going to be easy. And she has nothing to lose and she has the crowd behind her. So it’s going to be a really tough match for me.”

Rafael Nadal Battles Past Andy Murray in Rome

 

(May 16, 2014) Rafael Nadal rebounded from losing the first set 6-1 and going 2-4 down in the third set to defeat Andy Murray 1-6, 6-3, 7-5 to advance to semifinals on the Italian Open on Friday.

Murray dominated Nadal early moving out to 5-0 lead, taking the first set 6-1 with aggressive play from the Scot.

Nadal broke serve early in the second set to even the match and send the match to a third set. This marked the third straight match in Rome that the world No. 1 was pushed to three sets.

The third set saw both men exchange breaks to open the set, with Murray eventually taking a 4-2 lead. The world No. 1 broke right back and broke Murray again in the 11th game and closed out the match on his serve.

Both men engaged in long hard-hitting rallies throughout the match. Murray who had back surgery back in September said it was a positive performance.

“I’m getting close to getting back to where I want to be, and that’s pleasing with a couple of big months ahead,” The seventh seed Murray told press. “Tonight was probably the best I’ve hit the ball for a while, and the best I’ve felt physically since the surgery.”

“I really didn’t feel like I was playing bad in the first set. Probably tactically (it was) not good but inside the energy was really good,” Nadal said. “Tonight I didn’t have any negative thoughts for the whole match. I closed the match at the first opportunity.”

“The physical part is really good, the mental part too, and my tennis is going to be there sooner or later,” Nadal added. “This was one of my best matches in a while.”

“I saw Andy playing well again so victory means a lot. These wins give me a lot of power and make me feel alive.”

Nadal will face Grigor Dimitov for a spot in the final on Saturday.

On the other side of the draw, Novak Djokovic had to fight of a game David Ferrer. Djokovic who is back from a wrist injury won 7-5, 4-6, 6-3. He’ll face Milos Raonic n his semifinal.
