Unseeded American John Isner battled into the Rome Masters semis with a 7-6 (7/3), 2-6, 7-6 (7/2) win over Croatian sixth seed Marin Cilic. Isner, ranked 24th in the world, reached the last eight on Thursday when he upset world number three Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland 7-6 (7/1), 6-4. The towering American will now meet the winner of the quarter-final between 20-year-old German Alexander Zverev, seeded 17th, and big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic. Later Friday, seven-time champion Rafael Nadal, seeded fourth, meets Austrian eighth seed Dominic Thiem in a repeat of last week's Madrid Masters final, won by the Spanish clay court king. In the other quarter-final unseeded Argentinian Juan del Potro faces former four-time champion and second seed Novak Djokovic of Serbia.

Well done to both. A great fortnight particularly for Simona, not surprising that she ran out of gas
