Raonic withdraws from Monte Carlo Masters before third-round match

Raonic withdraws from Monte Carlo Masters before third-round match”

Up 3-2 in the third set, Nishikori, who returned to the ATP Tour in February after a season-ending wrist injury last summer, turned the tide in the sixth game when he broke Seppi's serve and pulled away to join the final eight.

"The first set was a real battle, he was playing a little better than me I think at the beginning", said Nishikori, who is playing the tournament for the first time in six years. "I finished the match with some swelling and I thought through treatment it would be better, but I had more pain today". I'm finding my rhythm.

World number 49 Medvedev started strongly and broke for a 3-1 lead in the first set, but that was the cue for Nishikori to up his game and he broke straight back.

Nishikori set the tone for the second set by breaking his 22-year-old opponent's serve in the opening game. "It was good that I was able to play aggressively in key situations", Nishikori said. "I'm going to need to play a very high intensity and a high level of tennis if I want to have success".

The 14th seed, a former Wimbledon runner-up, struggled with the problem during his second-round win over Marco Cecchinato on Wednesday. Cilic saw an easy advance past Milos Raonic as the Canadian had to retire, but he has the chance to reach the semis if he can take down Nishikori on Friday.

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic was downed by fifth seed Dominic Thiem in their third-round match, while top seed Rafael Nadal safely advanced to set up a meeting with the Austrian.
