Roland Garros R2: [19] Raonic def. [Q] Levine 6-4 7-5 6-2

Decent from Milos, played his best in the final set. Returned pretty well, stayed consistent from the baseline and didn't make too many bad errors, and hit some great forehands, but didn't serve as well as he'll need to, to beat Pico in the next round.

I'm just glad Levine finally got a main draw tour level win this year.

And guess what, I witnessed Milos do a dropshot . . !!

Milos transforms into a physical clay warrior by grunting as loud as he can
Will need to serve better to have any chances against Monaco

Raonic got better as the match went on, but he really didn't play well at all today (at least compared to what we saw in recent tournaments in Barcelona/Madrid). He'll need to do better against Monaco next and I'm sure he will. He's always raised his game as appropriate against better competition.

In any case, it's good to get through this with another game for Milos.

Good win for Milos, taking advantage of his draw. Should make it at least competitive against Monaco.

not a good day in the office for Raonic, serving 8 DFs. But he was by far the best player and had no problems.

That being said, Levine didn't make a bad impression either. Much better than what I've seen from him against Alves in Q2.

Levine was giving him some problems being a lefty and all.

lousy opening set from milos. he can’t afford to spot monaco a set and expect to prevail. he needs to kick it into high gear from the opening bell.

Nicely through for Milos. Good luck against Pico!
