Re: Milos Raonic

Pet took the first set 6-3.

Milos is finally getting his first serve to work in the beginning of the second set though..

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Re: Milos Raonic

First set over, at least he's starting to hold now though

it was ONE service break. You're making it seem like he lost serve multiple times.

Petzschner is relying quite a bit on Serve-and-Volley to put pressure on Milos and that has been slowing down his rhythm. The video watching must have paid off as well because he has been able to read Raonic's serve today

Sorry, should have said "not being able to get the first serve in" instead of "not holding his own service games."

It's not too difficult to read Milos today though.. his first serve is basically gone and his second serve sucks!

Re: Milos Raonic

He slipped on game point, faced break point a point later and then proceeded to hold.

Re: Milos Raonic

Petzschner's tactic is obviously putting pressure on Milos not giving him time to think. PP's returning the ball right on and inside the baseline and going into the net a lot. Milos on the other hand, is returning from way behind the baseline.

Milos needs to serve differently to push Petzschner back a bit cause Petzschner's tactic is working so far

Second set first serve is good though

Re: Milos Raonic

Raonic takes the second set. Had three set points in that set, two in the tiebreak.

Re: Milos Raonic

yes. Good thing Raonic won that set, he had him at deuce in 3 of Petz's service games. Had 3 break/set point opportunities before the tiebreak.
