Raonic must've gotten his outfit from some old bike messenger. That backwards red cap is horrendous.

Also, best player won here.

After that pathetic smash to conceed the break in the first game Milos was cooked. He still has room for big improvement though

Really dont know what to make of Hanescu. Always viewed him has a classy veteran, but the wimbeldon incident, underarm serves and even today not shaking the umpire hand. Anyway dissapointing for Raonic but has shown improvement recently and just needs to keep learning and developing and he should have a promising future. Good experience for him and fellow youngster pospisil after against nadal and djokovic. Overall good solid win for victor and learning curve for milos

Much needed victory for Victor, congrats to him. He played well. Milos has potential but he has a long way to go to be a consistent ATP player.

Raonic's returns were awful.

Well done Victor...as compared to a lot of people on here, I've actually taken a liking to Hanescu since the Wimbledon incident. Before, he was always an interesting and solid player, but I never saw emotion from him, from between points to even the handshake after. Then Wimbledon was a tad bit excessive but could have been merited with the crowd.
