In the 4th set Nishikori was serving to stay in the match – held at ‘love’. Raonic trailed 2:4 in the 3rd set tie-break. Raonic served 35 aces – he struck the same number of aces when he beat Nishikori in the fourth round at Wimbledon earlier that year, 4-6, 6-1, 7-6, 6-3.
Five-setters then: Nishikori 9-2, Raonic 4-3
