Roland Garros R1: [19] Raonic def. Ramirez Hidalgo 6-4 6-2 6-2

Embarrassment. 45 points down the drain. Ruben blew his chance at 4-3 in the first set where he had a chance to break. After that, it wasn't going to happen. If he took advantage of his opportunity like he should have done, this match could have been significantly different. Very disappointed and sad, really.

Oh well. Unfortunately, the real clay-courter lost, and so did the tournament. Not everything is going to go the way it should. Ruben had and blew his chance, what can you do?

Nothing RRH can do when Milos is on fire

Filo V. thinks Bolelli is going to beat Nadal, his opinions aren't exactly accurate ....

When you get broken 5 times and never break your opponent, it is a little rich to say that one point in the 1st set was the difference. It also defies belief to think that Raonic moving on doesn't make the tournament better...

Anyways, great routine win from Milos who was never broken despite only getting 50% of his first serves in. He will need to improve that if he wants to get round 4 and the potential Nadal match.

Great, both Milos and John today won against clay-courters in straight sets. Hope Milos will play on court with radar gun for stats- i want to see his fastest serve to be in RG stats.

Re: Roland Garros R1: [19] Raonic def. Ramirez Hidalgo 6-4 6-2 6-2

ya, RRH surely "blew his chance" in this one side match which he couldn't even break for once
gotta love FiloV's delusional prediction on his favourite players

The better clay courter lost. So of course, I'm going to believe the real and only clay player between these two will win. Ruben simply failed to deliver.

I don't, but it would be a great result for the game if he did.
