Yes, he did it both times leading 40-0 on serve and was successful on second attempt (Raonic made an error trying to slice). It were two different serves, the first one ridiculous from the level of his breast, the second one typical for this kind of serve - from the knee level on rival's backhand.

Stakhovsky as early as entering the court was in a relaxation mood, he didn't seem to believe in victory from the start.

Re: Memphis R2: Raonic d. Stakhovsky 6-4 6-4

Stakhovsky thinks he needs to behave like a comedian to entertain - show more fire and win more, it is that simple

deserving loser after such an unimpressive lack of showing of any bad temporament - A disappointment the Ukrainian will always be at this rate

I am the accumulation of your hate - Bring forth your RAGE and feed it to me as a bounty offering - Taste the all conquering power of the anger within


The power has always been in your hands

Embrace it

Unless there is something completely unforeseen that happens I can't imagine him losing to Isner. John really struggled to beat Donald Young.

Re: Memphis R2: Raonic d. Stakhovsky 6-4 6-4

it was quite funny looking at the replay as it showed Stakho laughing while serving that thing

the points that will drop have already been dropped on this site, the number on the far right for Milos is 1500, that will be the number of ranking points he'll have if he wins Memphis. If you look up, that would put him at 19
