Re: Raonic in the end of 2011?

I like his game better than Karlovic,Isner.
He has great potential in the future to be top20 player in 2-3 years....
Year end: I think around 50th place.

Top 30 should cut it for this year. He's got the game and yes, he's better than serve-only Karlovic.

Re: Raonic in the end of 2011?

I reckon top 40. Doesn't take that many points to get there, has a jumpstart with 4R of AO, should to well at Wimbledon/Indoor season.

Re: Raonic in the end of 2011?

I said 20-40. He has virtually nothing to defend until Granby Challenger, and then nothing after that until US Open qualifying, KL, and Tokyo. I think he'll move up very far in a hurry and once he starts getting DE into these events, he'll be able to defend his chunk of points that he got towards the end of last year

Predictions for Raonic's year?

The hype was huge around, meteoric rise etc. But as almost everybody I have doubts about his clay and even grass game. There's alot of time to improve, but do you see a 2011 slam semi-finalist? I certainly don't, but GL to him.

Re: Predictions for Raonic's year?

He won't be good clay season but he can make surprise on grass and US Open series. I think top 20.

Re: Predictions for Raonic's year?

I don't think he'll have a good clay season, but I expect better results on grass and during the Noth American HC season. But his best results will probably come during the indoor season

I agree. I think he will do ok on clay. I'm not saying he'll go on to win tournaments, that would be insane, and that is never going to happen. However, he has been playing a lot on clay in Spain, and I definitely think that will make him able to win a few matches here and there, but yeah.. I'm still not expecting much. Indoor season will probably be better for him! I also hope he does well in the Canada MS.

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