Re: IW 3R WWW: R. Harrison vs M. Raonic

I'm inclined to say Milos in 2, but he does have some kind of back issue so who knows.

Re: IW 3R WWW: R. Harrison vs M. Raonic

Man I hope Harrison wins. By all accounts he is a great guy, has a nice all-around game and is American. Raonic has already had his breakthrough, so I am strongly pulling for Harrison.

In reality however, Milos will win in 3. I say 3 because he is slightly injured, or else he would win in 2.

Re: IW 3R WWW: R. Harrison vs M. Raonic

Since Agassi, Ryan can be one of the best returners. He hit several return winner. Hope he will catch some of those big bombs.

Re: IW 3R WWW: R. Harrison vs M. Raonic

Raonic 6-3 6-4 or so. Injury= 6-3 7-6 or similar. Harrison doesnt have the weapons to hurt Raonic, he wont get a single break point in that match.

FEDERER
KARLOVIC

RAONIC

AND ALL OTHER SERVEBOTS


SERVEBOTS ARE TENNIS

Re: IW 3R WWW: R. Harrison vs M. Raonic

Raonic in 2. Harrison has nothing to hurt Milos with

More so on the forehand side from what I've seen. He hit some awesome returns versus GGL today.

What? He hit some great forehand returns yesterday, against GGL's second serve, but that's it. Not that special.

About the match... probably Raonic in 2. But I would like to see a real fight here.

You probably watched him play against the weakest 2nd serve on tour. Of course Harrison is just average returner, not even close to the likes of Nalbandian or Agassi

I'm not saying he's already a great returner. I just pointed out, that I noticed some fantastic returns there. Okay, GGL may not be a big server, but Harrison returned really well against Soderling in Brisbane this year.

Re: IW 3R WWW: R. Harrison vs M. Raonic

Depends of fitness, but Raonic has the game to cut points short so if he's aggressive and it's not affecting his swing too much I think he'll win in two

Re: IW 3R WWW: R. Harrison vs M. Raonic

Raonic may win it, but Ryan will pull out a tight match for sure.He showed several time he's a fighter as Raonic says it in his interview as well.
