why? raonic is a good player but he played 6 matches this week, so he will be tired. don't expect from him here too much. also, even in the normal circumstances, marsel is better and consistent player.
The notion that Ilhan can somehow be considered a cake walk into the MD. If he was so good, he wouldn't be in the qualies. And if I remember correctly, he's won like one ATP tour match all year. Not exactly a heavyweight.
