That was a perfect match from Milos. Start to finish. Even when he missed 1st serves he was in no real trouble of getting broken.

Onto the next opponent.

Another Game for Milos

Malisse was not good but still, Raonic made that look pretty routine, which is impressive in itself - guy has come from Australia to the West Coast of the USA via South Africa, I'm surprised he knows what day it is.

Re: San Jose R1: Raonic def X-Man Malisse, 6-3, 6-4

First serve was letting him down a bit today.. not getting a lot of them in, and had some double faults. Netplay still needs some work. Forehand is good. Backhand also needs some more work, though he did actually hit a backhand winner today

Anyway, he needs to up his level if he wants to win against Blake. Hopefully his first serve will be better.

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

He is lucky he has such s trong second serve, because his first serve was definitely letting him down today.

Well played Miloš, Ričardas as well! Looks like we might get Raonič-Berankis QF, the match I was dreaming (not just me) for AO R4.

  • Tomas Berdych beating Roger in Cincy - start of a good late season run
  • Radek Stepanek winning D.C. - back to top 30, top 20 next
  • Lukas Rosol RG R3, challenger titles - deserves top 100

Support also: Söderling, del Potro, Gulbis, Berankis

That was far from a perfect match, it was more like Malisse having 1 weak service game in each set. Milos made so many silly errors, hit like 15 easy balls into the net and was awful at volleying. But he played well when it was important. His serve was perfect. I hope his overall game gets better in the following rounds.

Very nice showing from Milos, looked pretty routine from what I saw. His fourth top 50 win of the year, good stuff

Keep riding that wave Milos, another top 50 win! Good luck against Blake.
