He was lucky Wawa wasn't able to take advantage in the third and he was able to get back in the groove.
Here, getting broken by Raonic(someone who breaks as rarely as anyone in the top 30) after being a break up in the third, 2 games away from the finish... that just doesn't scream focus and commitment to me.
He just played two bad points at *4-2 15-30 - but in the first set he had zero say in the matter, Milos was hitting the ball too good- showing what a fast court can do for an aggressive ballstriker like him.

Both players were excellent 2nd set though, the tie break was a clutch battle.

Milos winning the title would be great now but Kei doing it in his backyard would be a sweet moment too.
