Re: Milos Raonic

If I owned a house right now, I'd bet it Milos gets a wildcard. Even my half interested tennis friends here in the US have been talking about Milos - he's getting quite a bit of press in the US and there's enough hype he'll certainly be an attractive wildcard for Indian Wells and Key Biscayne.

A little off topic, but if anyone every gets a chance definitely attend Indian Wells and Key Biscayne - both great tournaments for spectators with half the crowds of a Grand Slam

Re: Milos Raonic

Well on Twitter Milos says his upcoming schedule is Davis Cup then Indian Wells and Miami so I'm assuming if he withdrew from qualies that there's probably something happening behind the scenes that we don't know about yet (like a WC).

He'll probably get Verdasco R1 again.

Will Verdasco have first round bye?

Re: Milos Raonic

Also I must say, Milos has one of the most amazing pairs of legs on a male that I've ever seen, if not the most amazing.

Re: Milos Raonic

A story on Milos from the Wall Street Journal, with some favourable, albeit premature, comparisons to Sampras:

http://blogs.wsj.com/dailyfix/2011/0...d-serves-duck/

Quote:
He has won 57% of points on his second serve and held serve 91% of the time, at or better than seasonlong career highs for Sampras. He is near the best marks Sampras put up over a season in first-serve winning percentage (81%) and break points saved (70%). And he is in first place by a wide margin in the seasonlong ace count, with 303 just two months into the season. Raonic is hitting aces on a remarkable 23% of his first serves. If Raonic can keep winning enough matches to rack up aces at nearly the same rate, Goran Ivanisevic’s single-season record total of 1,477, set in 1996, is in reach.

Re: Milos Raonic

Love Milos' draw, Ilhan, Fish who he beat 2 weeks ago, then GGL. 3 very winnable round sif he plays his best, probably fed after that but R16 would be great, so I don't mind Fed in R4
