Almagro was trying to return the 223km/h serves standing straight.

Great match from Milos, in rallies was solid against Almagro, what is good sign, but mostly his serve, i mean c´mmon if guy like Raonic has about 80% FS in he can play close match with anyone from top guys.

Milos's forehand great today, too. Some errors on it, too, but that's part of the deal when you go for the aggressive FH. way to go, Milos!

Raonic, not just an all serve mug. One of the best forehands in the game. He was cracking winners all day with his forehand. With his powerful forehands he was able to come in frequently for the easy volleys.

Even some nice backhand winners and ROS winners.

Federer: Future number one.

Fed vs Rafa

Wimbledon: 7-2
U.s open: 5-2
AO: 4-1
FO 1-9
WTF: 6-0
Weeks at number one: 302-140(about)

Really no contest

These big servers have very powerful forehand but some posters around wish their favourites could serve as well as they. But I think somewhere everybody knows that you are right.

Never ever give up

Just domination. Almagro is no match on this surface for a Raonic playing (and more importantly, serving) that well. Milos has seemingly improved his ROS and footwork over the last few months, too, but let's wait for some real top competition before going too far with that.

The final with Tipsarevic (probably) should be a good one.

You guys better go hide in some mouse hole. How is raonic not an all serve clown when he doesnt have to fight for one point in his games doing all service winners and aces ... I mean really. Get real.

Ignorantly label him whatever you want. It really doesn't matter if he's winning tennis matches.

He has some weakness of course especially with movement but his game more than serve. Of course he is one of the best servers but in form he wins short rallies with his powerful strokes.
Also I guess if someone doesn't need to strokes because has decent serve, he becomes a fantastic servers but that doesn't mean that his serve is his only strength.

Never ever give up

Awesome for the game. Actually, awesome for the human kind this result.

ROGER FEDERER

COME ON MURRAY!
Andy Murray: USO champion! Roger Federer: LEGEND!

2012: A reminder to all of those who said Murray would never win a GS and that Federer was done winning GS titles!

Come on! Take the title tomorrow, half way to putting these top 10 disgraces back in their place.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Blah.. I'm here since 2010 but still don't understand how tennis can win if a player loses a match.

Never ever give up
