    Kohlschreiber downs Raonic in Rome opener Philipp Kohlschreiber takes out Milos Raonic in straight sets on Monday in Rome. Kohlschreiber is through to a second-round encounter against Albert Ramos.

    Philipp Kohlschreiber scored a 7-6(2), 6-4 victory over Milos Raonic in the first round of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia on Monday. Kohlschreiber held all 11 of his service games without facing a break point as he advanced in one hour and 17 minutes.

    Neither man had a single break chance in a competitive first set. The ensuing tiebreaker, however, progressed in much different fashion. In fact, Raonic did not win a single service point in the entire 'breaker. The 16th-ranked Canadian got back two straight mini-breaks for 2-3 only to lose four points in a row.

    It was all but over when Kohlschreiber seized the lone break of the evening at 3-3 in the second. The unseeded German dropped only seven points in his last five service games, two of which came in succession starting at 5-4, 30-0. Kohlschreiber managed to bring up a match point at 40-30 and he capitalized on his chance with a clean forehand winner.

    The world No. 22 finished with four aces and no double-faults on his way to a second-round clash against Albert Ramos. Raonic, who just split from coach Galo Blanco, wrapped up his effort with seven aces and two doubles.
