Winning easily as expected.

Glad to see Milos' first-serve % returning to San Jose/Memphis levels

Re: Milos Raonic

Great win for Milos!

I guess Barcelona is almost like a home tournament for him now though - Greul next up, I like his chances

Re: Milos Raonic

Milos What an awesome result, thought he'd have more trouble with Steps. Hopefully he can get some revenge on Greul for Joburg.

Hi, Tom Tebutt is covering the tournament in Barcelona this week. Just in case you haven't noticed it before.

Re: Milos Raonic

Milos on court now. With GGL and Soderling both out, he's the highest ranked player left in his quarter, nice chance if he can keep playing well.

He just broke Greul to go up 4-3 in the first set.

Re: Milos Raonic

Greul cruised in his first few service games, but Milos seems to have found a groove, up 6-3.

Re: Milos Raonic

Milos got broken at 2-2 in the 2nd set, but immediately broke back, so it is 3-3 in the 2nd set.

Re: Milos Raonic

Livescore seems stuck at the start of the final set TB


edit: Maybe it is just my system

Re: Milos Raonic

Did Milos have to save a MP?

Re: Milos Raonic

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

Re: Milos Raonic

Very nice effort by Milos. It took some strong nerves in the 3rd set when he couldn't win a point on second serve.

He has now justified his seeding (first time for an ATP event).

And for the first time this year he has played the same player twice and gotten a different result the 2nd time (for the most part consistency has been his friend, as apart from losing twice to Ferrer, he has re-beaten Llodra, Stepanek and, most famously of course, Verdasco.)
