Rochus played an extraordinary point to create a triple break point in the 10th game, but Raonic was never in danger. It seems he's going to win back-to-back titles not dropping a set.

I want to see him in Indian Wells-Miami playing against (at least) 2 out of these 6 guys: Djokovic, Murray, Federer, Berdych, Tsonga, Del Potro. Still I don't know whether Raonic is a Top 10 material or just a merciless executioner of inferior opponents.

With Isner out, Raonic is going to win a 500 without playing a single top 25 player.

Epic game to break back, worst tiebreak I've ever seen him play



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

Outside of a few games, Rochus played quite well and forced Milos to earn his points to win this match. He even managed to impressively create a break late in the match when it looked over for him.

Still, the outcome was never in real doubt. Milos was too good. He looks well on his way to a third title this season, but if Melzer shows the form that he did against Isner, that would be a great match in the final (you know, assuming he can also beat Stepanek first).

Not sure what happened in that service game from Milos, but all things considered he handled himself well. Rochus seemed to have been working on getting that break all match! Anyways, bravo Milos

You dont really have to challenge the top guys to be a Top 10 these days
Just win a few MM with weak competition and make some decent runs in big event, you will find yourself in Top 10. Which is exactly what Milos doing

Re: Memphis QF: Raonic GOAT Server der Tenacious Rochus 6-3, 7-6(3)

he made it tougher than he needed to, but Rochus played a good game to break. Memphis is very weak but I'll take the points, hopefully all 500 of them, this gets him a IW seed, hopefully it'll be a top 20 seed.

I usually don't open thread unless I have something interesting to put in the title

He beat both Almagro and Tipsarevic in Chennai (both of whom are in the top 10). He's very close to that fringe top 10 level right now, IMO. Hard to say whether he could beat guys like Berdych, Tsonga, and Del Potro. That's why I really wanted to see that planned Raonic/Tsonga match in DC to see exactly where he's at.

Last year he played poorly at both Indian Wells and Miami. He can't afford to do that again if he has any hope of getting to that level in 2012.
