Re: USO R3 - Raonic def. Blake 6-3 6-0 7-6

Expected result. Milos is way more talented and skilled than the brainless ballbasher Blake who fluked his way into top 5 without making a single slam SF during a mug era. Raonic is no "serve-bot" as his FH is lethal, his net play good and BH constantly improving. This kid is going to be huge in a couple of years, book it. Raonic gives hope to future generation, it will be he who will be winning slams not arrogant mugs with no game like Tomug.

So, basically the same reasons you class Federer as 'Serverer', you're using to call Raonic 'no serve-bot'?
You really are a closeted RF fanboy.

Anyway, no legend, but a protagonist American player for sure.
See now this i totally agree with. I wasn't trashing Blake by any means and he can look back and have a lot to be proud of. I suspect even he would agree he's achieved some great things, but considering himself a legend i highly doubt.

Blake? Bagelled by Raonic, I can't imagine what happened there.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Re: USO R3 - Raonic def. Blake 6-3 6-0 7-6

Wow, it's embarrassing for anyone to get bageled by a guy with a return game as poor as Raonic's, let alone a former top tenner like Blake.

Blake returned to junk, time for him to retire

Muzza if healthy will still blast this hype machine away

Re: USO R3 - Raonic def. Blake 6-3 6-0 7-6

Like Raonic a lot as one of the best young guns --- the complete package, plus with great poker-face court demeanor. Seems like a classy guy.

So why would Lacoste, a classy high end design line, put him in a horrendous shirt that only a preschooler in the 80s would wear? The girls would call this a "hot mess." Six different colors (incl black shorts) --- why? A clown shirt for sure.

It's glitter rock, it's glam and it's fabulous.

One Lacoste hasn't been high end for a while. 2. The marketing probably did it's job if you noticed it and are posting it online for more folks to see. That marketing person responsible earned his salary today.

Re: USO R3 - Raonic def. Blake 6-3 6-0 7-6

Unlike guys like David Ferrer:no decent weapon,ROCK solid consistent,not too good not too bad,just average and never be a threat to anyone in the top 4,Raonic has HEAVY weapons,and a lot of time left to improve his weakness.

Don't see Milos handing out bagels often. When was the last? Monte Carlo to Llodra? Right before he ate a bagel himself?
