Re: Milos Raonic

Milos into the final after Monfils withdraws due to a wrist injury, MIlos will play an exho with Karlovic tomorrow instead of the SF and have a serving contest after.

Maybe a double dose of Nando should he beat Delpo tomorrow, final in San Jose, first round in Memphis?

Re: Milos Raonic

If he goes through on the withdrawal, does he get the 150 points or just 90 points if he loses in the final?

Re: Milos Raonic

I saw 'Raonic goes through to first final' in the title of the ATP daily results e-mail, and though they had just made a typo, what a stroke of luck for Milos.

Unfortunate in that I would to have liked to see him play Monfils, but either way he will get a good test against Verdasco or DelPo.

He will get at least the 150 points. So at worst, he will be around #65 or so next week. Almost 100 places in a month, not bad

Re: Milos Raonic

Milos gets Verdasco in the first round of Memphis so he could play Verdasco twice in a couple days.

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

Re: Milos Raonic

Milos picked the right match to drop his first set of the week.

Good to see the final will be broadcast, will that be live? Not sure when the final is scheduled to start.

Re: Milos Raonic

I think Karlovic is the type of player who MIlos would struggle against, usually he can hold his serve easily and rely on breaking his opponent maybe once per set or winning the TB, however breaking serve or winning tibreaks isn't so easy to do against big servers like Karlovic or him. Good thing it's only an exho

Re: Milos Raonic

From the website:

Singles Final: Will be played at 5:00pm on Sunday, February 13 and will be broadcast live on CSN California and on Tennis Channel

so yeah I'm pretty sure it'll be live.

It's not like it's a big deal anyway.. it's only an exho plus, who knows.. he probably didn't even play his best. It would be wise of him to save his strength for the final tomorrow.

Re: Milos Raonic

There's a very short video with Milos here, if you're interested.. he's basically just talking about blogging for SAP Open: http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/T.../San-Jose.aspx

Re: Milos Raonic

I know it wasn't a legal serve but it was damn close and he really hasn't filled out his frame yet, so there is more to come from him.
With the 150 points he should move up to around 66 in the world.
