Well deserved win for Raonic loved the huge kick serve that almost went into the crowd on the ad side on the first match point and the smash from behind the baseline wasn't bad.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Seriously though, Murray always plays badly when he's the first match of the day. I'm surprised he doesn't do more to address this, maybe start warming up earlier or something. At least this loss wasn't as embarrassing as to Chardy, someone he's never had a problem with before.

One of my fave matches of the year that Servebot my arse. This kid is the real deal, such a shame the ITF and ATP do not want his ilk winning big tournaments so they keep those courts slow.

Muzza stunk a bit at the end of the third but in the first two sets there was nothing he could do against a superb display of fast court tennis. Everything in Milos' game was working. The ROS and ground game are definitely there.

Onto Shanghai for Andy, but no disgrace here.

Murray wasn't like this throughout the US Open, right? I don't remember it if so. His attitude was appalling today. I usually don't care what the players do out there but every single point?!

Wow this is unexpected. Didn't think Milos had it in him with Murray being this good. Murray usually matches up quite well against top-quality servers.

Impressive!

Lets just call it like we see it, its hard to get motivated for an ATP 500 tournament in Asia after you just won Olympic Gold and the US Open.

It comes as no great shock to me, i wouldn't be surprised if he has a poor showing in Shanghai either, his year has been a success i'm sure his main focus now is the WTF in London.

QFT. Milos kept his cool including on MPs. Congrats to him and his fans!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

If he wins Tokyo he will be 10th in race and honestly who is going to surpass him during indoor season - Almagro? he has real shot finishing year as top 10 player that would be amazing.

Good weekend for tennis. Now to make it perfect, Nole and Nishikori should win.

He wanted to win that match BADLY. Give Milos some credit, he was ace.

Murray I believe lost all 250 from not replaying Bangkok, and then for only making the SF here in Tokyo he loses some more big points. He likely won't win Shanghai again, in fact I don't think he'll make it past the SF, so that's another 640 point loss.

Murray is bound to finish 2012 #3. Rafa/Ferrer for #4 and #5 (probably Rafa stays 4 and Ferrer 5 or lower), and the battle for #1 and #2 is between Rogie and Djokovic.
Murray never had chance to finish season top 2....

Tremendous victory for Milos today. He kept his level up at a high level throughout and played a clutch 3rd set TB with some monstrous shots when he needed to. Certainly one of the best matches he's ever played (up there with the loss to Federer in Madrid) and probably the best win.

He's got a real chance to win the first ATP500 event of his career this week against either Kei or Baghdatis.
