From the live scores it seemed like he was getting tired towards the end with all those second serves, clutch to hold at *4-2 after saving a few BPs.

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

Kendrick played very well this game, and two of those second serves came after two first serves which were aces but were called "let"

Raonic must be exhausted. It's been a long couple weeks.

A sloppy match overall from both players.
Kendrick started to read Milos' serve in the 2nd set plus Milos show some of his temper throughout the match and especially near the end of the match with a dodgy line call. A tough win but moves on to face Sam or Mardy.

Another Game for Milos

ROGER

Only just crawled over the line here, looked pretty tired. Kendrick helped him out by completely donating away a break in sets 1 and 3.

Except for these two service games, Kendrick played better.

I hope Galo gives Milos a talk. Horrible attitude in the second and third set. And bad sportsmanship in the end, not shaking the umpire's hand.

I thought the ball on the first match point was out as well, so good on Raonic for composing himself and serving it out with an ace. Is this going to be a Del Potro type run?

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Clutch as always, didn't liked that he didn't shook hands with the umpire cause of a few close calls. In the top 50 now, amazing. Kendrick worked his ass off, had chances in the 7th game of the 3rd, but couldn't return well. Still, good week for him.

Raonic was as emotional and impatient as never before in the last two weeks, I think he felt additional pressure because for the first time this year in America, he was a clear favorite. Moreover there's a great opportunity for him to reach another final, Fish or Querrey are better match ups for him than Roddick or Del Potro.

Kendrick played a good match, I think I've never seen him playing so well, it was an amazing chance for him, I guess he gave everything he has today.
