WWW Memphis final 3rd-set tiebreaker: Isner vs. Raonic?

it's clear Memphis is all coming down to a final-set tiebreaker in an Isner-Raonic final

appears to be a toss-up with both players in ridiculous form on serve

The match will decide whose serve is more effective.

Isner:High 1st serve rate,more aces.

Raonic:Lower 1st serve rate,higher 1st points won rate,less aces.

Average serve speed is almost the same.

I think Isner's serve is more stable and he can win the tiebreak.

i wouldn't pencil isner into the final just yet. he has two tough outs in melzer and querrey (both of whom he has losing records with) and he was clearly struggling today against donald young.

Isner hasn't looked great so far this week. I think he'll still make the final, but he's got a bit tougher road than Milos.

And I'll take Milos in a tiebreak against just about anybody...even Isner.

Isner is 4th all-time best tiebreaker.5-0 in tiebreak this year(1-0 against Fedex-the best tiebreaker in history),while Raonic is 7-2.

Raonic because Isner is a mug in finals.

Is the Serbian name Milos common in Canada? Just curious if some Canadians know?

if it comes to that I'd say Isner, since he's the best in tie-breaks, but I don't think Isner will reach that point : Raonic will win before or Isner will lose before the final.

Isner on a diving forehand pass to win the tournament over Raonic.
