Exciting match. Raonic had breakpoint with a second serve at 5-5 in the second.

MMO R2: Federer defeated Raonic 4-6 7-5 7-6(4)

Great match!!! Federer was clutch in the last 2 sets. Let's go!!

Raonic played a great match, but made 1 silly error in the tie breaker.

That was pretty sad, Milos was by far the better player the whole match. Just come the big points and he didn't play them well at all. Let alone the TB which his serve was as useless as Volandri's, won all his points in it through his ground game. Great match though.

Fed played the bigger points better

Only point Raonic choked, IMO, was the point that set up match point for Fed. Just a rather bizarre, out of the blue error.

Nice one. Sorry for Milos, he under performed in that TB.

good stuff Fed
Raonic was tough to beat today and was close to the win if he had taken any of the BPs in final set

The most clutch perfomance from Federer I've seen in years.

huge miss chance here for Milos..
Roger played really great on big points though, probably never feel like he's going to lose this

Raonic should have won this match. Fed will now cruise to the semis - and probably the final judging from Novak's level the other day.

Still - Fed wasn't incredible and I didn't think the court was being that great for his game - guess we'll see.

Entertaining stuff, Chairman Rashnick managed to lose whilst having better stats in every single category bar net points (which was basically the same)
