Stockholm QF: Raonic vs Dimitrov

I expect Raonic to win this with his better serving, but should be an enjoyable one.

Re: Stockholm QF: Raonic vs Dimitrov

this should be an interesting match. The return of serve of both is average so if they serve well this will be tight

this could be going to a couple of tiebreakers

Re: Stockholm QF: Raonic vs Dimitrov

Dimitrov's prone to more mental lapses so I'll go with Raonic in 3.

Grigor has more variety and better groundstrokes and movement but Raonic's serve is a huge weapon. If Grigor can get a read on Raonic's serve he will win this.

Potentially awesome match up. Hoping Raonic takes this comfortably, and believe he will.

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.

Re: Stockholm QF: Raonic vs Dimitrov

Raonic in str8s i think has been a beast on serve on this surface and Dimitrov isn't the best returner yet, hopefully will be a descent match anyway.

Re: Stockholm QF: Raonic vs Dimitrov

Grigor has to find answer to his serve, otherwise I don't see him winning on this surface.

For Tennis's sake, hopefully Grigor pulls it out. All-serve bots are a scourge on the spectator sport.

Re: Stockholm QF: Raonic vs Dimitrov

Dimitrov in 2. Dimitrov is exactly that kind of player that Raonic has problems with.. he's a good returner like Ferrer, which means there's no chance in hell that Raonic will win this. Watch me being right.

Good returner >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Big serve

Dimitrov in 2.

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