Re: WWW Miami R2: Raonic v.s Clement

Arnaud can play with big-servers and he's having a great week finally, but i still think Raonic will win something like 7-6 6-4
Hope i'm wrong.

Hopefully Clement can work his magic and cause an upset here. I love watching Clement play. He's one of a kind.

Re: WWW Miami R2: Raonic v.s Clement

If Arno plays well, he will win the match. Comes down to his body being 100%, his serving, and his confidence in winning this sort of match against such a high level opponent. His determination levels are extremely high, the court speed is to his advantage, and the match-up is to his advantage.

Clement needs the win a lot more than Raonic, and this would mean so much to him as he continues to fight to continue his career, so hopefully he can get the job done.

Clement in 2. He's a better player.

How can a Grand Slam finalist be labelled a journeyman? Stupid post even by your standards.

Re: WWW Miami R2: Raonic v.s Clement

Arno is a journeyman these days, sadly. But he got to the top 10 and a GS final, better than most his contemporaries could ever dream of.

Hopefully he deconstructs Raonic's game like he has Karlovic's.

Re: WWW Miami R2: Raonic v.s Clement

Courts are slow as well, so Clement has an even better chance of reading his serve.

Re: WWW Miami R2: Raonic v.s Clement

Raonic struggles with old players and Clement loves to play big servers, so I'm giving the Frenchman a big shot here.

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

Re: WWW Miami R2: Raonic v.s Clement



Anyone care to translate what he says about Raonic? I think I heard him mentioned around the 6:00 mark.

By the way... seems like a super-cool guy (Arnaud)!
