Re: WWW IW R3: Federer vs. Raonic

The above sounds accurate. Raonic can take things to Tiebreaks and you never know there. He's capable of stringing together big winners at important moments.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Re: WWW IW R3: Federer vs. Raonic

Raonic has a big shot at Roger if he is patient enough, even if his ROS is pure garbage.

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: WWW IW R3: Federer vs. Raonic

If Roger is alright healtwise and improves his footwork a little, he should win this one in two.
If not, Milos has a good shout

Re: WWW IW R3: Federer vs. Raonic

Neither really played that great today but both will ratchet things up for this match.

I expect Roger to break at least once. Something like 7-6 6-3. I wouldn't be surprised at Roger breaking twice in a set. I don't see Raonic having any chance, really. I'd be pretty shocked if he won it.

However, if Roger's sick, that changes things completely.

Milos has never beaten a top 8 player. And he won't do it here.
7-5 6-3

Re: WWW IW R3: Federer vs. Raonic

I think Rog in straight, but tight sets..BTW there is a lot of people saying Rog got the virus..so if this is true maybe he will withdraw and if not it will be harder for him to beat Raonic

Roger Federer

Form is temporary, class is permanent

"The more you lose, the more they believe they can beat me. But believing is not enough, you still have to beat me" RF.

"He is capable of hitting shots which others don't even think about trying" Lendl on RF.

Re: WWW IW R3: Federer vs. Raonic

Milos will take a set with a TB win, but lose in the 3rd.

He has only played Nadal and Ferrer out of the top 8.
