Raonic reaches San Jose semi-finals

16 February 2013 09:27

Milos Raonic's stunning run at the SAP Open in San Jose continued on Friday as he comfortably reached the semi-finals.

The Canadian has never lost a match – or set – at the ATP 250 tournament, claiming title wins in 2011 and 2012.

And he is well on his way to adding to that account as his streak at the 2013 event continued with a 7-6 (7-0) 6-3 win over Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin.

Raonic served sensationally during the match, hitting 14 aces and winning 91 percent of points on his first serve.

He offered the sixth seed just one chance to break for the entire match and saved it while Istomin gave his opponent six opportunities.

Raonic was not at his clinical best on those break points, winning just one, but it was still enough to give him an easy win inside 80 minutes.

He will be joined in the semi-finals by second seed John Isner, who beat Belgian Xavier Malisse 7-6 (10-8) 6-2.

Isner won 37 of 41 points on his first serve and hit 10 aces in a typically powerful display, while he also made two breaks in his win.

Other results saw American Sam Querrey beat Colombian Alejandro Falla 6-3 4-6 7-5 while German Tommy Haas ended the run of American wildcard Steve Johnson with a 6-4 6-2 triumph.

Haas will now meet Isner in one of the semi-finals while the difficult task of stopping Raonic will fall to Querrey.
