Re: Raonic: Gap between top 4 and youngsters not big
In my opinion Raonic with his current efficient game-syle is going to lose on regular basis 4-6 4-6 or 6-7 3-6 etc. to Nadal, Djokovic and Murray everywhere; 6-7 6-7 or 6-7 7-6 3-6 etc. to Federer. The question appears: is he able to raise his tennis on return games when he needs it? If yes, he will be able to win against them for example 4-6 7-6 6-3 being a break down in the 2nd set. Raonic is a machine of winning service games but retrieving skills of his opponents are far inferior in comparison to the guys I mentioned above.
