Milos Raonic booked his place in the Rome Masters semi-final at the expense of Jeremy Chardy.
The 6ft 5ins Canadian won 6-3 5-7 6-2 on the Grandstand court in the Internazionali BNL d’Italia quarter-final match.
Currently ranked 10th in the world the 23-year-old will face the winner of the match between David Ferrer and Novak Djokovic.
Here’s what Raonic had to say afterwards.

You reached the quarter-final in Monte Carlo and the semi-final here – are you becoming a clay court player? And who would you rather face tomorrow?
Whoever I play, whatever I say now doesn’t matter because they still have to play their matches and nobody is going to listen me. And yes, I am doing much more better on clay and I am very happy.

Where do you think you improved most?
Movements, returns, generally I am becoming better and also how I deal with the difficult situations, the mental side as well.

Your second set today was probably the worst of the tournament, what happened?
Yes but it was very good for the mental aspect. I know these breaks were very uncharacteristic and my own fault.

Novak or Ferrer in the draw – how will you beat those?
Both guys are difficult matches. I played David twice and Novak once. If I can control the centre of the court, if I really be the one dictating and take care of my service it’s going to be very important.

Is it true you are running for the ATP Council?
Yes. It’s good to know what’s really going on and not in a negative way. The Council is a little bit on the older side, a lot of facts do change and will be affecting us for longer than they will the guys on the Council.
