They did? Shoot, I missed it!

Yes. And Milos would likely be where Isner is in the rankings if he didn't miss the entire summer hard court season last year.

I owe you an apology. If Milos can continue to take these mugs like Mugray to the cleaners, then I'm happy .

Agree and Milos is already a monster physically, his legs

I think when the big three retire he can win a slam. With clowns like Mugic and Dimugtrov as his greatest rivals, its certainly possible.

Milos

Change serve-bot into serve-forehand-backhand-movement-volley-return-drop-shot-bot and it'd be more accurate

Brilliant from Raonic, pathetic from Murray.

@ clowns who just realized Raonic has actually got a game. It's not like he just learned to hit a forehand yesterday.

Raonic would probably destroy Mugray without a tiebreak if they in a GS final.

I agree that's his only chance, though i think that more and more super aggressive players will send pushray to the cleaners.

Earlier, Nadal, Djoker and Fed are "old men" compared to him. He is what 21?? two years and he takes his first.

Milos has had the ability to challenge some of the best players in tennis for a while now with his great serve and forehand combination. He just hasn't had the opportunity yet with the injuries and low ranking. I do think Murray's passivity makes him the best matchup for Milos out of the big 4, though I'd love to see him try against Nadal again soon (hopefully on Sunday...though Ferrer will not be easy to get by).

Re: Barcelona QF : Raonic def. Murray 6-4 7-6(3)

this was Murray's mindset heading to today's match he never learns it seems

ATP - Barcelone > Murray: "Un match qui sera différent"

Par Vincent Grethen, vendredi 27 avril 2012 à 11:15
Andy Murray rencontre Milos Raonic en quarts de finales, à Barcelone. Le Britannique s'attend à un match difficile face à ce gros serveur, comme il l'expliquait en conférence de presse.

"Ce match sera totalement différent de ceux joués depuis le début. Milos possède un énorme service et son jeu est de plus en plus fort. Il va falloir réaliser un match très solide pour passer. Il faudra saisir les opportunités quand il fera des fautes. C'est à ce moment là que je ferai la différence."
