    This semifinal lasted exactly 3 hours, fifth ‘best of 3’ match of the season that reached a 3-hour mark. In the 1st tie-break Raonic won six straight points trailing *0:3, in the 2nd tie-break he led 4:3* before losing 4 straight points. “It was a big win,” said Djokovic. “Because it gives me a lot of strength and belief that I hope I can carry into tomorrow’s final and the rest of the season. He played at a high level, especially on his serve, and I cannot recall the last time when I felt so helpless in the return games. I couldn’t really read his serve.” Prior to that semifinal, Raonic’s longest ATP lost match: 2 hours 40 minutes (Baghdatis 6-7 7-6 6-7, Shanghai ’12)

    Total distance run: Raonic 2524 M, Djokovic 2350 M
    Average 1st serve speed: Raonic 215 kph, Djokovic 181 kph
    Average 2nd serve speed: Raonic 174 kph, Djokovic 148 kph
