Rome quarter finals set

Third round matches in the Italian Open were played and while there were some clear cut straight sets victories, we had one two setter and one three setter on the men’s side, and three that went the distance on the women’s side, which thrilled the crowds.

Kyle Edmund pushed Sascha Zverev (2) for both sets and was a valiant loser 7-5 7-6 (11)

Pablo Carreno Busta (10) battled Aljaz Bedene for over 150 minutes.

Little separated the pair in the opening set, but the Spaniard managed to convert one extra break opportunity and take the lead 6-4.

Set two was even tighter, with only a tie break able to decide the outcome.  Bedene controlled things in the breaker seven points to three and the match was level.

Pablo stepped up the pace in the decider, winning 13 of 14 points on his first serve and facing no break points throughout.

He won the match 4-6 6-7(3) 6-2.
