Djokovic progresses to Italian Open quarter finals

Serbian Novak Djokovic overcame a terrible start to his Italian Open third round match against Thomaz Bellucci to progress to the quarter finals and a meeting with Rafael Nadal. Andy Murray also went through to the quarter finals at Rome on Thursday. Roger Federer was the lone upset as he lost to world number 15 Dominic Thiem. The top seed Novak Djokovic failed to win a game in the first set, winning just eight points and looked all set to lose before he came back to win 0-6 6-3 6-2 against the unseeded Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci. Djokovic sets up a meeting with fifth Seed Rafael Nadal who also needed 3 sets to reach the last 8. Rafael Nadal and the seven time champion on Rome's clay - had to come from a set down to Australian Nick Kyrgios but eventually won 6-7(3) 6-2 6-4. Second seed Andy Murray had less trouble against Jeremy Chardy of France, the Briton winning 6-0 6-4. Murray will face David Goffin in the next round after the Belgian beat eighth seed Thomas Berdych 6-0 6-0.
