Marseille, France (SportsNetwork.com) – Italian Simone Bolelli stunned top-
seeded Milos Raonic during Thursday’s second-round action at the Open 13
Bolelli recorded the biggest win of his career by outlasting the world No. 6
Canadian star in 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-3) fashion on the indoor surface at
Marseille’s Palais des Sports.
“There were many close games, but I couldn’t make the most of my chances,”
said Raonic. “I served better as the match went on, but he made it through
when it mattered the most.”
The 29-year-old Bolelli broke the longest losing streak against Top-10
opponents and is now 1-35 lifetime against such competition.
Another Day 4 result saw promising Austrian Dominic Thiem take out sixth-
