Overview

Raonic has history on his side as he looks to get the better of the Czech number one Berdych, with the Canadian having a 3-1 lead in head to heads. Raonic's last vicotry came as recently as the Paris Masters, where Berdych had to shed off his inhibitions and come out fighting. This is also their first encounter on clay, something that could play in Berdych's favour.

Roanic got the better of Tommy Robredo in the last round, beating him 6-3 3-6 6-3 in three sets, in a game that lasted an hour and 40 minutes. On the other hand Berdych was able to get the better of his opponent Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets 7-6 (7), 6-4.

It will be a difficult game for both parties with Berdych having much to prove ahead of the encounter. Fourth seed Raonic has been the better player on hard court, but a move to clay may see the tide turn against him.
