San Jose QF - Raonic d. Berankis 64 76(2)

Was a bit of a flat match really but Raonic pulled it out. He's on the march this year.

This is unbelievable. Into the semi final.

Milos is resurrecting Canadian Tennis!

Another Game for Milos

Re: San Jose QF - Raonic d. Berankis 64 76(2)

I tried to watch when Cilic and Troicki were changing sides but saw no game at all

Berankis seems having a good serve for his size

useless old guy

San Jose QF: Raonic - Berankis :6:4,7:6

Again great match for Milos. In whole match he faced to only 1 BP and saved it of course. Hit 12 aces and play really good in rallies. In Johannesburg he choked it against Greul, now he is playing well i hope he can even win this- with Monfils and Verdasco as top seeds.. who knows when those 2 will be pathetic in their matches again

Berankis was extremely unmotivated and ultra flat in the first set. If he would have stepped it up just a bit, he would have had won in 2 easily.

Re: San Jose QF: Raonic defeated Berankis 6-4,7-6(2)

Correct me if I'm wrong, I think this is only the 11th ATP match he's won? And already into the semis of a tournament! Amazing stuff

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

The commentators said Raonic was best in the first set but that Berankis was slightly better in the second.. anyway, Milos won

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

Horrible from Berankis.

He realized that he has to pick sides when returning only in the 12th game of the second set.

I mean, wow...I thought the guy was smart.

83% points on first serve : actually the difference with Raonic is on second serve : only 47%

It's good that Raonic's run in Melbourne wasn't a fluke.
