Re: USO R4: Raonic vs. Murray

I'd say.... Raonic.

In a 5 setter.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.

Agreed it's toss up.. But of any of the round of 16 it's safe to say best chance of an upset. This can go either way, but it's not a case anyone can say at this point easy win for Andy.

Re: USO R4: Raonic vs. Murray

Depends. Murray seemed to struggle with the heat and seemed almost lethargic at times during his R3 match. If it's a day match with similar weather conditions as today's (hot + humid), then Raonic clearly has a fair chance. My money's on the Scot though.

Which is why Murray will win this either way. It would have been more of a toss up if it was 3 sets, but Murray will almost always win in slams imo.

I still stand by what I said.. Murray in 3 fairly easy sets. Could go to 4 if Milos play well.. 5 if Milos is on fire (doubtful), but Murray will win this for sure.

Re: USO R4: Raonic vs. Murray

Night match would be great.

A. easier on Andy's body
B. faster court/conditions for Milos

= better match.

Re: USO R4: Raonic vs. Murray

Should be a great match either way. I'm saying Murray experiences it out in 4 but no scoreline would shock me (except maybe one with no tiebreakers).

Re: USO R4: Raonic vs. Murray

First set, Andy breaks Milos early and wins 6-4
Second set Andy starts pushing at 5-5 and gets broken. Raonic wins 7-5
Third set Andy breaks early and then goes walkabout. Raonic wins tiebreak
Fourth set Raonic sends a tired Andy home 6-1.
Milos in 4.

Re: USO R4: Raonic vs. Murray

Tough match. Murray probably clinches it with more experience but he's been crap this US Open.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Yeah, but I bet that will be Federer/Fish (assuming Fish wins tonight).
