Pssst...the "servebot" just broke Murray twice to take the first set.

I think he will be very close to 1000

Not at all. Serving well, really well like Roger Federer is an esential part of the game and is very important and enjoyable.

Being a boring servebot like Muglos is something a lot different

Re: Will Raonic hit 1000+ aces this season?

When people call Milos a "servebot," it's an indicator to me that they either haven't seen him play enough or haven't seen him play his best tennis.

Re: Will Raonic hit 1000+ aces this season?

O.k. he is now on 907 aces before Tokyo F vs either Nishikori or Baghdatis - now it looks very likely he will hit 1000+ aces in 2012

Re: Will Raonic hit 1000+ aces this season?

Isner is actually closer to those 1000 aces, but I think they will probably both get there.

He's at 921 now. Does seem possible, but it's not easy at all.

Re: Will Raonic hit 1000+ aces this season?

He should reach 1000. After Shanghai R1, he is at 935.

If he were to play 6 matches more(between Shanghai, Valencia and Paris), 11 aces a match would get him there.
Currently he is averaging at over 15 aces a match. So, 1000+ aces this season is likely.

Miloserve will get 1000 aces with ease.

Game over. Forever.

Re: Will Raonic hit 1000+ aces this season?

Milos at 935 going to R2 in Shanghai vs Marcos. Even if he will loose he should be around 950 going to Europe indoor tournaments, very likely at this moment

Also Isner after his 3tie-breaker clash vs Anderson is currently at 941 so it looks like this will be 1st season ever with 2 guys hitting 1000+ aces. It never happened before

Re: Will Raonic hit 1000+ aces this season?

With only Paris left, Isner is at 990 aces, and Raonic at 966.
Isner will definitely reach 1000 aces for the second time in his career.(he did it in 2010)
Raonic probably will too, but another first round(possibly even a second round) exit would leave him a few short.
