Happy he's started 2011 strong, and playing well. Hope he can beat ERV tomorrow, and make the main draw, it's been a while since we've had 2 canadian men in an ATP main draw that wasn't the Rogers Cup

Easy victory for Raonic who will have a real test tomorrow against Roger Vasselin. This is a great start of the year.

Nice to see Milos playing well this season too.

Hopefully he'll win against Roger Vasselin, but it's definitely going to be tough..

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

Yeah, he looks like a good prospect. And he's not an all serve mug like some people said (although the serve is a big part of his game of course).

This Milos Raonic fellow plays a solid game. Solid enough in fact for me to say his full name so I can get used to saying it. Bigger tests to come for the lad but I like the way his career seems to be heading. Next up, take down Roger V.

So I was recently informed that my signature was empty and needed a life affirming quote from an inspirational figure like Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde...

When I die my mates had better not tweet some cheesy crap like I'm watching over them or some jazz. Watch your train-wreck lives? I'll take my chances in hell.

I changed my attitude on Raonic looking at tape of him. I think he's going to be really damn good. I don't love his game, but he does have a lot of game. Should definitely make the top 100 this season.

There is a lot of talented youth coming into the tour these next few months, so I guess the young talent isn't as bad as a lot say it is.
