Chennai QF: Raonic def. Sela 7-6 (4), 6-3

well done

What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,
the game in which you are entertained.
It is the game you will win.

Such a great serve wasted on such a muggy ground game and movement.

Happy about this win, he lost to Israel number 2 in October so its good to see him get the win against Israel number 1.

At *5-6 in the 1st set Raonic was up 40-15 and quickly fell to 40-Ad set point for Sela and he survived a 2nd serve rally. That was the turning point to me, he had some tough miscalls in the 1st set tiebreak and was up 6-2 and won the point at 6-5 with a nice ace. Sela was really strong on his own serve and after watching this match I really think Almagro can really hold his serve with ease against Raonic. Great win though, his first serve was almost impossible for Sela

I guess this just proves what life always shows us. It is better to be great at one thing than it is to be good at many things.

Or it proves that it's better to be 9 inches taller than your opponent, than it is to have a superior ground game to your opponent.
