ATP Rome Results & Quick Hits
Just a day after sitting down with Ben Rothenberg for a no-holds barred podcast, Nick Kyrgios went from the highs of egging the crowd on in his match against Casper Ruud, to defaulting on the match after getting a bit het up at the crowd, earning a game penalty before throwing a chair onto the court, kicking things about, and ultimately shaking hands with Ruud, umpire and referee before walking off court!
Meanwhile – the organisers got it in the neck from both Dominic Thiem and David Goffin for organisation during the first rain-washout day the tournament has had in its history, criticised for keeping the players on site when they could have called the matches early.
Emotions seemed to rife all around, as Roger Federer was put out on Grandstand court for his second match, and let umpire Carlos Barnardes that he was not happy about the condition of the surface. Maybe the rant was what he needed, coming from two match points down to book his place in the quarter-finals.
Standout match of the day on the men’s side is the clash between Federer and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Federer got a measure of revenge for his Australian Open defeat in Dubai, but Tsitsipas has made back to back finals on the clay this year, winning Estoril and finishing as runner up behind Novak Djokovic in Madrid.
There are 20th edition meetings for Djokovic who leads Juan Martin Del Potro 15-4 overall, and Rafael Nadal takes on fellow countryman Fernando Verdasco (leads their head to head 16-3).
Biggest shock of the day was Marketa Vondrousova taking out the two-time finalist Simona Halep, who had required treatment on court during their match. Vondrousova had to injury struggles in her match against Daria Kasatkina to set up a quarter-final clash with Britain’s Johanna Konta, into her first WTA premier mandatory quarter-final on clay.
Konta came through a tough task against Roland Garros Finalist Sloane Stephens before easing past Venus Williams in her double-header.
There was less good news for Petra Kvitova and Garbiñe Muguruza, who both had to retire in their third round matches.
There will be a battle of the qualifiers when a resurgent Kristina Mladenovic takes on an in-form Maria Sakkari.
The match to watch will see Victoria Azarenka take on Karolina Pliskova again on the clay. Azarenka stunned defending Stuttgart champion Pliskova earlier in the season, and has just noticed up her 500th win after Muguruza retired while Pliskova is looking for her own 500th win today.
