expected, happens every time

Well, I guess we can just give Fed the trophy now, beating Milos guarentees him the title everytime

Meh, Raonic definitely should have won this one. Definitely underscores how hard is by far Raonic's best surface, though. Just couldn't muster anything even when Fed was missing first serves.

Luckerer.

Tough loss Milos, you'll be dreaded at Wimbledon 1st week. Second week, green/brown clay, no chance.

Fed played a better match. Raonic was solid on first set, but overall, Fed deserved the win.
"Luck"... Yeah. Shut the fuck up.

One of the best matches Federer has played this year. Absolutely superb performance from the Swiss Maestro.

Re: Halle QF: Federer def. Raonic 6-7 6-4 7-6

25 aces by Raonic! What a serving effort - a whole set of aces. But Raonic couldn't muster one single break point on the Fed serve and it told in the end. Fed just had enough to get through - helped by Raonic being awful on Fed's second serves, only winning 17% compared to Fed winning 47% on Raonic second serves. But when Raonic got a first serve in, most weren't coming back.

Fed has Berdych left to deal with at Halle, but hopefully he can see him off.

Raonic looks like he could be a very dangerous draw at Wimbledon in the first week and a half if he keeps serving like that. He definitely has at least one big upset in him.

Didn't see the match. But Raonic is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the coming 10 years I have a feeling.

Anyone still expecting Tomic to have an overall better career?

Raonic is impressive. Roger does not get aced that much often. He is one of those guys that needs to meet Rafa in Round 1

Everyone will be praying to dodge Raonic at Wimbledon (presuming it's not playing like mud). Whoever gets him in their draw is going to be very nervous.

Raonic is so overrated. Wins the first set against Federer everytime and still can't win.
