Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

I'm amused by how this tie was supposed to turn based on Monfils' knee issue and it turns out that Raonic's knee actually became the deciding factor.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

I have such a low opinion of Raonic. I feel as though he is overrated beyond belief having seen him live numerous times in Melbourne.

It wouldn't have been a good match. The match up would be awful. Learn your tennis. Hire out a couple of old matches between different styled players and watch. If you need to, i'll wire you money to do this. I'm very well off in terms of money. Actually i'm filthy rich.

Anyway Big servers vs bad returners are never good matches.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

Use that money to buy a brain Brentos. Looks like you really need one.

As for Raonic, i just hope it isn´t serious. The circuit needs his game.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

Pospisil was probably not going to win his single, then Canada had to make Raonic play the double to have a hope.

He was good in this double, it was a very good doubles match, and a tight one.

Canada's double surely could have won this, then Raonic could beat Tsonga.

They lost the double, Canada now had very little chance, and Raonic was painful : even if it was not that bad (which has still to be confirmed), the decision to withdraw is understandable.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

Raonic will not play the exhibition doubles match but he will go to San Jose and see if he can play. His first match wouldn't be until Wednesday anyways, so he has some time to see if his knee gets better.

If it's an inflammation type of injury, a few days off might be enough for it to subside

Are you serious?? Raonic was anything but good in the double missing easy volleys (might as well staying back) and easy returns (same for Nestor though).
Heck, even his 1st serve % was low, clearly don't know how to play double.

That's my opinion, I'm totally serious.

Guy Forget, French Davis cup captain, and former doubles world number 1, said that this double match was a very good match and that he was delighted watching it :

OK for Raonic's and the Canadians' serve, not for the rest
