Re: San Jose Final Raonic def Istomin 7-6 6-2

Milos Guy is an absolute beast indoors. Congrats on yet another title.

Served at 63%
Won 90% of 1st serve points (27/30)
Won 94% of 2nd serve points (17/18)
No break points faced

Practically unplayable on an indoor hardcourt.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Raonic impressive really. Composed as always but moves better, hits better, still plenty of space for improvements.
Istomin won in total 4 points on Rao's serve.

Raonic played great during the whole tournament, and a well deserved title for him

Re: San Jose Final Raonic def Istomin 7-6 6-2

Well done Milos. First guy to 2 titles this year and he could well wrap up a whole lot more (especially when it comes to indoor season at the end of the year...). How far he'll go in his career will depend a lot on to what extent he can keep up this level of serving & how much he can avoid injuries which seem to plague players of his size. Good luck to him...

Hope he enters Basel this year - Fed vs Raonic would be a battle of the indoor king vs the pretender to the throne.

incredible match for raonic. he dominated the 2nd set and dictated the rallies. anyone who still thinks he’s a one-dimensional servebot needs to have their head examined.

istocir did well to reach the final, but he really needs to work on his serve to take it to the next level. it was a pleasure watching him this week (final notwithstanding) and he should have a great season.

Really cool to see him defend the title. Last year was a shock, but now he was practically the favorite. Shows how much he's improved.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.
