Dominc Thiem pulled precision to pick up Milos Raonic's winning hit albuts (58 with 19 aces) and will look for Federer's first Masters 1,000.


Dominic Thiem will have the opportunity to knock again on the doors of glory after defeating Indian Wells semifinals Milos Raonic (7-6 (3), 6-7 (3) and 6-4 in 2h: 31). The Austrian will look for this Sunday (23:30, #Vamos) before a rested Roger Federer his first great title in a Masters 1000 after losing the finals of Madrid in 2017 (Nadal) and 2018 (Zverev), and the Roland Garros 2018 (Nadal) .

The company was not easy for Thiem before the powerful and aggressive Raonic, who dispatched 58 winning shots, 19 of them direct kick. But he threw precision and counteracted the Canadian bombing minimizing his failures: he only committed nine unforced errors.

Raonic, who moves like a fish in the water on the tracks of Indian Wells (it was the fourth consecutive appearance that reached at least the semifinals) , saved the furniture in a tiebreaker of the second set that had been put with 3- 2 in favor of his rival. He won five points in a row and thus reached the third set. In the fifth game of the definitive sleeve, Thiem broke Raonic's service and did not lose the acquired advantage, although his opponent had a break point to tie to five and draw. He did not take advantage of it and fell for the first time in his three confrontations against the seed number seven.
