Milos Raonic

Here's the thread for Milos. Let all discussion about him now take place here

seems strange im the one finally making the thread

he's the top ranked canadian, 20 years old and ranked at a career high of # 153.

the highlights of his career came last year during the late half of the season when he made the final in a canadian challenger last year, beating 2 seeded players along the way before falling to german Tobias Kamke. He also beat the world #'s 1 and 2 in the doubles of the rogers cup and madce it to his first quarter final of an atp event falling to russian igor andreev.

Re: Milos Raonic

Great to have a topic for Milos , hope in next forum request you can get a Canadian forum because you deserve it, Ricardas and canadian players topics are very active and a lot of people post frequently in them so I think it's matter of time they get their own forum.

Respect to Milos tomorrow will be made AO qualifying draw, at this moment he would be 26th seed and would have to face 1-8 seeded in third round, hope he gets a good draw, I've belief he can do something similar to what he did in last US Open. I let you the seedings until this moment

1- Kavcic
2- Bolelli
3- Dimitrov
4- Souza
5- Chiudinelli
6- Sweeting
7- Haider Maurer
8- Soeda

10- Huta Galung
11- Muller
12- Robert
13- Roger Vasselin
14- Sijsling

16- Niland
17- Greul
18- Mahut

Thanks for the list. I think he's good enough to qualify, even beat the top seeds. But it really depends on a lot of factors. I'm expecting the matches to get pretty close, at least his final qualies match. He almost beat Roger Vasselin, and he's kinda good. So I believe he has a fair shot. Certainly the Canadian with the best chance to qualify. He's the only Canadian I see qualifying actually. But we'll see. Nothing is for certain yet. I hope he'll get a good draw though.

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

Re: Milos Raonic

Ideally he would end up in Souza's section.

Re: Milos Raonic

Thanks for starting this thread, misty

Really looking forwards to Milos' season, I think he can be a solid breakthrough player, and crack the top 100 for sure

For those wondering, Milos has just 11 points that will come off before mid-April, when he has his futures wins in Korea dropping off. So he will surely continue to rise for the next few months at least.

Re: Milos Raonic

Re: Milos Raonic

Great work on starting this thread Misty. Is it going to move to the sub-forum if we ever get one? I am looking forward to Milos having a breakthrough season this year. Top 100 is defenitely feasible for him.

Yah, it would be moved if it were to happen.

Re: Milos Raonic

Awesome. Milos can beat anyone in qualifying if he's on his game. Hope his draw is good...

Re: Milos Raonic

WOW milos really got stuck with probably one of the toughest first round opponents he could have gotten in david goffin. The kid just finished taking wawrinka to the limit, he's very good and a very dangerous first round.

if he can get past gopffin he should qualify, there's tricky guys in there but no one else he should really lose to

Re: Milos Raonic

Well it seems I was wrong about seedings 25-32 facing 1-8 in 3rd round , it is only for main draw

Conor Niland IRL (16) v Kevin Kim USA
Andrej Martin SVK v James Lemke AUS
Ryler DeHeart USA v Nikola Mektic CRO
David Goffin BEL v Milos Raonic CAN (26)


I was never heard anything about Goffin until last week, hope Milos can handle him

Re: Milos Raonic

Goffin could be a really tough first round for Milos. He will have to play his best. Milos and David both had good runs at the end of last year and David has played really well at the start of this season. Should be a really interesting match but I wouldn't be surprised at all if Milos had trouble and didn't win this one.

Re: Milos Raonic

Very interesting first match for Milos, against another talented guy of similar age in Goffin. It should be tough for him, but if he wins that match I think he should qualify from that section.
