Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

He seems to be well focused and willing to learn, a very positive player as well. What if he can improve his groundstrokes and increase his first %?

Also, if you think that he might win- Which grand slam would it be?


My bet is USO in 4-5 years, not sure why- But I dont think he will ever be a wimbledon champion.

KARLOVIC

RAONIC

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

Without doubt, he will. I'd say Aussie is his best chance and US open at least once.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Probably not unless he improves his movement, bh and ros. And this is coming from a fan of his. I doubt he'll even crack the top 10. He has to improve a lot before that happens..

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

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

Good thing for him is he got that first tour title out of the way quickly so he's already got a goal that could have been a real annoyance done. Next goal would be a bigger tournament, which would be a masters 1000. That will be tough as he is right now, but by next year I think he'll be ready to win one of those and then start seriously challenging for 2nd week in GS's.

He needs to improve quite a bit before we think about it. Would love to see it though.

He needs to improve a lot for some great results e.g. semifinal but I doubt that he would win ever.

Never ever give up

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

Depends on how much he can improve. I don't know if people think his serve is some kind of super weapon? Like the top20 doesn't already have many guys at his height that can serve at high level but with way greater ground game. If Raonic want to get into the top10 and get a seeding that will give him a better shot to go deep in slams he must get his RoS and baseline game to top10 level. Right now there is nothing about Raonic that says future slam winner. But as we know it can change fast. It is also very rare that someone just walks in and grabs a slam in his first deep run so likely we will see him in a QF/SF/F before it's time to seriously consider him going all the way.

This Kid will never win a slam. He has hardly half the talent of Henman.

A Canadian grand slam winner? Not gonna happen. We don't even know if Murray will win a slam.
