San Jose QF: (3)Milos "Rashnick" Raonic def. (6)Kevin Anderson 7-5 7-6(3)

the servebot is out

this match was great. Mostly because of the butchering of Milos' name. The commentator had at least 5 or 6 different pronouncations Rash-nick is the worst I've heard yet

Much less than the scoreline suggests. Milos looked to be in complete control all the way.

Exactly, it was hilarious, I don't know how he could invent something like "rushnish", the funnest thing is that he never said it in a proper Slavic fashion if he'd wanted to pronounce it Raonić

The commentator changed his pronunciation several times,in the end it was something like Rashonik

Great win Milos and he should take the title.

Funny thing was he said it right once straight after he heard the umpire saying it.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Now that was a boring match. Anderson never seemed on Milos' level, even if the score was close.

I think the Harrison match should be a very good one. He should have confidence from dealing with Milos' serve well and beating him last time. The winner of that match probably takes this tournament.

Good for the game when a better serve-bot wins.

If Raonic is going to stick around, I really hope he works on his movement. He doesn't have to be Benoit Paire level, but Berdych is also 6'5" and can move well enough to control baseline rallies.
