the first one he played, against Roddick in Memphis (2011) he really should have won. Roddick himself said that he had no idea how he won that match. Throughout the match Raonic was by far the better player, but ended up losing anyways.

Against Melzer this year he was outclassed. Melzer played one of the best matches in his life, his returing was insanely good.
Against Nishikori..pretty much same story. So yeah to be standing here with 0 ATP 500 titles after 3 attempts can be considered a bit unlucky. I'm sure he'll get one though.
