Surely you don't pull out of a Davis Cup match as a precaution! I'm sure he knows how much the Canadian fans care about him, how much they were looking forward to seeing him play and how disppointed they will be. There must be something seriously wrong with his knee. Otherwise he would play. I had never seen the Canadians so excited about Davis Cup before.

I hope he gets better soon. I hate injuries.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

There's no chance they could win from the beginning. Plus, the captain talked too much.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

agreed, but i thought the commentator was saying something like he was out last year for 4 months and he doesnt want something like that after he has had such a great start to the season. dancevic is really doing well tho so far, fighting hard.

Laurendeau is an idiot. Raonic had some knee issues while training in Toronto even before going into the first match. Save him for the 2 singles matches.
Instead, let's take a guy with some knee trouble, put him in doubles where he's not familiar, and make his knee start and stop a whole bunch for 2+ hours.

He said he's going there to see Stanford doctors and re-evaluate his injury. I would be surprised if he played next week (or any time soon).

If it's serious enough to drop out of this match, it's certainly serious enough to drop out of a 250 event.

He has time to re-evaluate. I don't think he's scheduled to play until Wednesday. He can't play best-of-5 today.

But he's defending the full 250 points. I think he'll try and play and try to win a match or 2.

If there's something wrong with his knee (and there definitely seems to be), he's not going to be playing at all. Long-term health comes before points.

Yes, he did win San Jose in 2011 over Verdasco, but he lost the 2011 Memphis F to Roddick, lol yeah Roddick.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

I'm disappointed Pospisil and Monfils are playing the dead rubber. Llodra and Nestor should be appointed to cheer the crowd with an unusual match these days of two serve-and-volley left-handers

they're not gonna let the hometown boy sit this one out. Vasek probably wants to redeem himself and put on a better showing than Day 1 anyway.
