San Jose R2: Raonic schools Blake 6-2 7-6(4)

Raonic played solidly, served well. Blake was a bit meh. Flashes of his former top 10 form but his forehand was poor today in my opinion.

Raonic choked while serving for the match at 5-4 but beat Blake easily in the breaker.

Blake should get a new coach imo. Get some drive back into his life on tour...

I support Andy Murray!

Milos was playing great going up 62 54 before he had a huge hiccup serving for the match.
Somehow re grouped with his big serves down 5-6 and won a tight tie-breaker to win the match.

Quarter Finals Bound!!!

next up is Berankis

Another Game for Milos

Blake played the game of his life when Raonic served 5-4 just after 9 crappy return games from him. Raonic was in complete control of the match.

Re: It's another game for Milooos! Raonic beats Flake 6/2 7/6

tight tie-break?!

phahahhaha

don't be funny please... Blake's body language was dreadful, even a blind man could've guessed that Flake will lose... Pathetic display in tie-break with those disgusting unforced errors... Raonic rock solid as usual and that loss of serve was totally justified because there was no way Flake could take that set, not even to mention the entire match. Pathetic Blake, stunning serving from Raonic.

Re: It's another game for Milooos! Raonic beats Flake 6/2 7/6

Milos was excellent in the first set, Blake didn't get a single point on his serve. Played a poor game at *5-4 in the second, but regrouped well in the TB. He was clearly better the entire match, and got the result, nice stuff

Should be an interesting next match.

Re: It's another game for Milooos! Raonic beats Flake 6/2 7/6

It's been a good career for James, but honestly, it's time to hang it up. He looks like Karlovic trying to change directions nowadays. All he can do is serve and take big swings at returns. For a guy that used to be maybe the most explosive mover in the game, it is embarrassing to be losing the neutral rallies to a guy of Raonic's movement. That and, you know, only winning 58% of service points

Change the thread title. A legend like James doesn't deserve these juvenile nicknames.

As for the match i agree with others in here, it looks as though James is on his last legs But his Career has been one to cherish and to just see him playing is GREAT. Milos looking very strong

Raonic didn't do anything in the first set. Flake couldn't hit two shots over the net.

Re: It's another game for Milooos! Raonic beats Flake 6/2 7/6

it's impressive to see Raonic win again, physically he seems tireless, it's his sixteenth match since the begining of the year !

what is his secret ?

but I think his marathon will stop with the clay season ( he seems to play too much like a hardcourt player, slow move, lack of topspin on his shots )

baby-faced assassin got tight serving out the match but collected himself in the tiebreak.
he needs to work on disguising his 2nd serve kick/spin ball toss. he tosses it two feet behind him making it too easy to read.

Legend ... lol

That loser couldn't even make a GS final.
Flake is even worse than a clown like Murray.

Nadal, Djokovic & Del Potro are legends.
Flake is just one of Federers clowns like Soderling and Llubicic.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker
