Milos Raonic (Canada) is the real deal

Title says it all, he's the only one of the youngsters with something special that will get him as far as winning a grand slam.

Has a positive game/attitude one of the three best serves in the game, big FH, progressing quickly in all other departments such as movement. Mentality very strong also I think.

If supported by a good entourage and experienced coach he will progress further and since there is still a lot of room improvement, he will shine.

Totally agreed. Definitely the best from the 'younger' league of players and I have no doubt he'll have the most successful career too.

Re: Milos Raonic (Canada) is the real deal

I agree.Still needs to work on movement and BH but in general he has a nice base to grow from

Congrats to Roger Federer on his 17th record breaking GS title and becoming the best player that ever played on grass and breaking number 1 record.You deserve it Roger

Re: Milos Raonic (Canada) is the real deal

Yup. Only thing holding him back: injuries

Just stay away from those and he should be good.

Re: Milos Raonic (Canada) is the real deal

Yes, he is. Needs to improve on his ground game but should win Slams.

But I do wonder if the slowness of the courts will damage him.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Re: Milos Raonic (Canada) is the real deal

Probaly the best player of his age but a bit overrated by some. Needs to improve a lot if he wants to challenge at the very top.

Re: Milos Raonic (Canada) is the real deal

He'll do well but the big danger for him is clearly injuries - he moves better than he did but it'll never be a strong part of his game and obviously he's very serve reliant. He's not a serve bot like Karlovic - he's got a very good forehand for one - but if you took away his serve he'd struggle big time.

He's in the Andy Roddick mould - big serve, big forehand - pretty unbreakable when on. Roddick sustained it for a few years but couldn't stay at that level. Remains to be seen the consistency Raonic will have and how his body holds up. Think he'll be a top 10 player and can sneak a Masters on fast indoor courts like Paris (or Madrid faux-clay ) but getting a slam for the next few years with the top 4 around is a tough ask.

The kid seems nice, if rather dull so a bit boring to root for. Want to see a Raonic/Isner match just because the serving might actually be intriguing to watch. Normally find Raonic matches very difficult to watch - ace, ace, ace, unreturnable, ace - but watching the two best servers on tour against each other would have a good novelty value.

Out of the young guns I'm still sticking by Nishikori though - he has way more variety and his strokes are better than Raonic. Kei has also had bad luck with injuries but other than that he's done well in big matches - seems mentally quite strong and what's more he's a smart player to watch. He thinks on court and that's appealing.
