Re: Halle QF: Federer def. Raonic 6-7 6-4 7-6

Raonic didn't have a single break point.

Federer only had break points in one game, the one where he broke.

As close to an all-serve festival as it gets. Raonic's poor returning and ground game, even more in comparison to Federer's, made the difference. You can't beat a top player by only getting 17% of points off second serve returns, it's just not possible.
