The Dumblane Dynamo will fell the lumberjack in 2 easy sets. Why he has even bothered to fight for this title is beyond me

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

This court looks somewhat faster than Ashe so Milos will have a better crack at it. Couple of TBs await I think.

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

I don't see how Raonic can win this. Injury is his best hope here. GoatReturnray is an awful match up for any servebot.

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

Would be awesome if Milos won this, a part of me is cheering for him.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

Hopefully Milos as he'd be an easier opponent for Kei in the final (assuming Kei gets there).

Probably Murray though, more complete game and all. Milos needs to serve great and have a great day off the ground to have a chance to win.

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

I thought that Milos was mixing in a few new first serves against Tipsy yesterday, and I expect to see him deploy these against Murray, who exploited his previous serving pattern to great effect in their US Open match. Regardless, it should be a good match, Milos in 3.

Don't you like Murray more? Don't you want Slamray to keep this winning streak going? Be able to challenge for No.1 early next year?

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

Andy should win if he plays anywhere near 80%. His game is just too good and too varied for someone as one-dimensional as Raonic.

Andy can win if he plays badly, but Raonic HAS to be near his best to win (and that's assuming Andy is mediocre). If Andy's playing well, Raonic will NOT win.

I have seen just from middle 3rd set to finish, which serves you mean as new? Bodyserves? 1st serve kicker from AD court? Milos already has perfect variety on his serve, what new he was trying? i haven´t seen most of the match so i would love to know.
