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

Not bad for an all serve clay court clown.

The smashes from Raonic in the *5-4 game when serving for the match were interesting to say the least.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Milos growing up in front of all our eyes. It would have been easy for him to collapse after the three missed smashes but he came back and played a great game at 5-6, and a great tiebreak. Best win of the Canadian's career. And I love how calm he was after winning, he's so professional and composed. He hit his forehand amazingly well, served well as always,, and attacked whenever Andy hit the ball short.

Andy was too passive. Bottom line.

The future. Great to see him finally beat a top 8 player.

As for Andy, that was bad! At least some time off now to prepare for Madrid though.

I'm posting in AJ's thread because he has the tiebreaker score.

I was impressed by Raonic today. Good placement on his forehands.

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

Really good aggressive tennis from Raonic. Was quite solid in the rallies as well, the backhand is improving constantly as well as his footwork, ran around his backhand really well today. Apart from choking when serving for it, a near-perfect performance from Milos .

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

A rare occasion where we can say "Good for the game" in this forum and it will actually be true.
Future of tennis may not be completely doom and gloom afterall. Great to see one youngster finally cranking it against the big guys
Good one Milos, keep it up!
