Re: San Jose SF Raonic def Harrision 7-6 6-2

can't be true, he hasn't risen past 25 yet

his injury in Wimbledon has a lot to do with that though

it's got more to do with me being too lazy to change it, but I'm sure he'll rise past 25th eventually

Part of the reason why I think he's not a good match player is because he too often reverts to defense.
He's got a very nice serve, and a big forehand, and he's very quick, quite decent at net. He's easily top 20 material.
His problem is managing his abilities in big matches, which he's just not experienced at yet.
(Being fiery isn't the same as finding ways to beat tough opponents. Sure, he found a way to win against Rochus in 3, but that's actually the problem - should have been a straight sets wipeout.)

I can't explain. It is simply visually appealing to me. And I admire someone who has perfected his serve.

Predictable. Raonic is a better player than Harrison.

Harrison's pushing was never going to work indoors against servebot like Raonic. This is also a reason why Nadull struggles so badly on this surface - pushers be punished on it
