Novak Djokovic twice came from behind to defeat Rafael Nadal in straight sets in their Rome Masters quarter-final. A 7-5 7-6 (7-4) win means the world No 1 will now advance into Saturdays semi-finals where he will play sixth seed Kei Nishikori who beat Dominic Thiem 6-3 7-5, while Andy Murray will face lucky loser Lucas Pouille.Nadal had his chances to end a six-match losing streak against Djokovic but wasted a break advantage in the first set, then missed five set-point chances in the second. Novak Djokovics set point in the opener was majestic... Djokovic recovered from a break down to secure the opener in dramatic fashion. Nadal initially went 4-2 up against the serve, largely thanks to a drop shot that found a home three times in the early stages.Mid-way through the set, Djokovic began finding his rhythm and threatened with some trademark returns from the back of the court. He held a 10-minute game to remain 3-4 down before more excellent work from the back of the court earned Djokovic a break of his own.Djokovic led 6-5 heading into the final game but defeated Nadals serve in a pulsating manner. Another Nadal drop shot had him on course for 6-6, but Djokovic converted his fourth set point by winning an astonishing rally. Novak Djokovic lost his cool and threw his racket Nadal then crucially failed to convert five set points to force a decider. Leading 5-4 in the second set having broken Djokovics first service game, Nadal continued to put himself on the brink but could not cross the line.Djokovic saved all five set points and remarkably broke back before winning a thrilling tie-break 7-4 in a memorable demonstration of grit and athleticism from both players.Current Rome Masters champion Djokovic now has a 26-23 head-to-head record against Nadal.Watch the Rome semi-finals on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 3 HD from 1.30pm.

There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. LONDON -- Pep Guardiolas first match in charge of Manchester City ended with an unconvincing 2-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday, just hours after the new English Premier League season got underway with a shock defeat for champion Leicester at Hull.With $200 million spent on new players and Guardiola arriving from Bayern Munich to manage an already impressive lineup, City is the hot favorite to win the league this season.But instead of making a stylish debut against modest opposition, Guardiolas team needed an 87th minute own-goal by luckless Sunderland defender Paddy McNair to start with a win.At least the outcome was better than Leicesters at Hull, where the champions were left stunned by a 2-1 defeat to a newly-promoted team.Elsewhere, Tottenham had to come from behind to finish 1-1 at Everton. There were 1-1 draws too for Southampton against Watford, and Stoke at newly-promoted Middlesbrough, along with 1-0 wins for Swansea against Burnley and West Bromwich Albion at Crystal Palace.But the days spotlight was inevitably going to be trained on Guardiola, given his trophy-laden spells at Bayern and Barcelona, and his new clubs hunger for league success.The Spaniard signaled the changes with his very first starting lineup. England goalkeeper Joe Hart was dropped in favor of Willy Caballero and there were debuts for defender John Stones after his 47.5 million pound ($62 million) move from Everton and Spain forward Nolito.His team certainly got off to a perfect start, with Raheem Sterling winning a penalty that was converted by Sergio Aguero after only four minutes.But despite having nearly all the possession, City labored to make their superiority count and was pegged back in the 71st minute when Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe rifled home an equalizer.McNair handed City all three points, though, when the ball struck his head and flew into his own net following a deflected low cross by Jesus Navas.It was tough for everybody and that is why the people says the Premier League is tough, Guardiola said. We were constant and we deserved the victory.As for his new signings, he added: All of them were a team, so we fight. We spoke many times what we should do like a team, this is just the first step. But of course, for the new people, neww manager, new players, to start winning helps to believe in what we are doing.ddddddddddddClaudio Ranieri knew what his Leicester players were doing against Hull, and he didnt like it.Along with the missed opportunities in front of goal, Ranieri said a lack of teamwork meant his team was second-best on the day.They played better, we tried to do our best, the Italian told Sky Sports. The effort was amazing, but individual effort -- not as a team. And I think this is the key of the match.Having defied odds of 5,000-1 to win the league last season, the tables were turned on Leicester as the surprise champions lost to a club that was struggling with pre-season injuries and protests by fans against the owners.Although Leicester has managed to keep all but one of its key players from last season -- with combative midfielder NGolo Kante moving to Chelsea -- Ranieris team lacked its usual bite.Adama Diomande put Hull ahead in first-half stoppage time, Riyad Mahrez leveled from the penalty spot just after the restart and Robert Snodgrass scored the winner in the 57th minute.Hull, with Mike Phelan in the role of caretaker manager after Steve Bruce left in July, had been struggling in the run-up to Saturdays match.A lot of the time it was fingers crossed to make sure that we had enough players to get out onto this field today, Phelan said.But all credit to the football players. They showed a lot of the determination.Ross Barkley gave Everton its fifth-minute lead in Ronald Koemans first game in charge, but Erik Lamela headed a second-half equalizer for Spurs.Nathan Redmond scored an equalizer on his Southampton debut against a Watford side that finished with 10 men after taking a ninth-minute lead through Etienne Capoue, while a free kick from Swiss playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri earned Stoke a point at promoted Middlesbrough.Leroy Fer scored Swanseas late winner against Burnley and a header from West Broms Salomon Rondon gave the visitors their victory at Crystal Palace.On Sunday, Jose Mourinhos Manchester United plays at Bournemouth and Arsenal hosts Liverpool.Chelsea hosts West Ham in a London derby on Monday night.
