WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

Will Milos have fish and chips for lunch tomorrow?

Fish can be a tough nut to crack and Milos is probably tired so we'll see...

Re: WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

Torn between Fish in 2 and Milos in 3 again, so I just went for Fish in 3

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

Re: WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

Milos has played quite a lot, so he might lose a set, but he should have enough to beat Fish, hopefully.

Re: WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

Wouldn't stake my house on this one - heck, I wouldn't even stake the broom closet on it. Would like to see Raonic win, but at the cost of yet another three setter? ummm

Fish in 3.

Fish should hold his own quite comfortably and Raonic will most likely be quite tired, so we'll see.

Re: WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

I'd have to side with Fish, but it is another of those matches that Raonic can most definitely challenge for.

Fish should protect his service games, as long as his serve doesn't drop off. He might struggle to break, like the others, but if he can carry his tiebreak form over from 2010 he is certainly capable of making the right moves when it ultimately counts.

The question, for me, is whether Raonic can continue to make the play when he is asked to do so. For the last 2 weeks he has come up with the goods (except in that exhibition against Karlovic), but here he is playing for another final, in a larger event, as a new member of the top 50, against a very experienced, established player with home support. That is quite a lot for him to turn over in his mind over the next 24 hours. He isn't going to freeze, but it might be enough to sew a seed of doubt in his mind if his game isn't firing on all cylinders.

You also have to question whether Fish is fully fit, and able to bring the sort of tennis to the court that he was playing in his resurgence last year. If he is, it should be too good.

Re: WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

I didn't see Fish against Querrey, but it seems that he was good, even though he struggled before against Lacko and had physical problems recently.

Then I would go for him in 3 because I think he has the game to make Raonic move and have some footwork problems, especially with some moonballs and slices from time to time, and also because he has a serve good enough to protect.

Re: WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

Raonic in 3. He won't be flustered by his new ranking or the size of the tournament. He's too grounded emotionally for that. But yes, always a question how long he can keep up this streak before his body calls for a break.

Re: WWW Memphis SF: Milos vs the big Fish

Another early match for Raonic: 11:00am semi vs Fish, well I hope he likes early dates...
Hope he can reach the final.
