Your Expectations for Milos Raonic in 2012?


What are your expectations for 2011's Newcomer of the Year for 2012?

What are your expectations for him at the Slams? at the Masters series? and every other events next year and his performance overall?

Re: Your Expectations for Milos Raonic in 2012?

he is not good enough to win a Slam or a Masters ....he will be what 21 next year?he is already too old for a breakthrough....Rafa and Novak were winning Masters and Slams before that ......I hope he can get something going

Re: Your Expectations for Milos Raonic in 2012?

i like milos. that is a great question.

we need to see how he does against the top guns of the sport at indian wells and at miami masters.

i hope he is able to put that memphis loss behind him and make a little noise at indian wells. based on the draw, he could make the quarters at indian wells.

From IW/Miami, I expect one quarter appearance and I'd be thrilled if he pulled a semi.

For the year, around top 15.

Re: Your Expectations for Milos Raonic in 2012?

As I said a couple times, I'm waiting on his matches against "big boys" to know more about his potential future, he has faced only 2 out of 8 best players in the world (I count Del Potro instead of Fish) so it's tough to estimate his chances based on beating "mugs" in San Jose-Memphis combo.

At the moment I don't see him winning the biggest tournaments.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Well said. If he does well and make one of the top 4 truly sweat in a match this year then we we will see where his game is.

He has had a few injury problems already. That is worrying for someone his age. The talent is there but can he stay fit for long enough to fulfil his potential. I like his game.

Re: Your Expectations for Milos Raonic in 2012?

Top 10 for sure at the end of 2012, if he stays injury-free.
And the recipe is simple: keep winning MM tournaments and do well -or great- in big ones.

Federer, Raonic, Tsonga, Monfils, DelPo ...

Re: Your Expectations for Milos Raonic in 2012?

To finish in top 10 he needs to play a full season first.It`s tough to expect miracles but getting to the quarters in some masters events and R4 or quarters in the slams it would be a good year.
