Err... Murray did crush Raonic when it mattered, don't you remember?


Probably a sensible tank from Slamray. Needs to be ready for Shanghai.

It's not because of Murray,but Raonic played a great match and this is his best surface.The game needs more courts like this.

US OPEN SHOULD BE MOVED TO ASIA.

Miloserve Rocketnic & Johnny ServIsner

Roger Federer | Grigor Dimitrov | Dominic Thiem | Nick Kyrgios | Alexander Zverev

And I did expect this match to be close so the 2nd part is true too, you can't tell me what I do and don't expect

This court was much faster than Ashe and the chances that Murray was gonna play as well as he did in round 4 of the US Open was slim, that was the best he's played in a while, he was totally unbeatable that day, even a decent Murray is beatable by Milos on this court if Milos play well and he proved just that.
I didn't expect an easy match and I know quite a few other people who didn't either. All Murray fans. You shouldn't make up your mind about an entire fanbase just because there are a few idiots on here, who know nothing about Tennis. A lot of Murray fans are also just being sarcastic.

Great match from Milos, thrilling comebacks in that final set.

Maybe are slow, but who is going to beat him - Tomic serving like WTA and slicing all day, Grigor trying to play like Roger, but being destroyed by clay-courters on faster outdoor HC. He will win at least 1 slam with that competition in few years... His game is too big and neither of those young guys is famous for great return skills.

Slow courts aren't gonna affect Milos that much IMO.

I said Murraytards not Murray fans, there's a difference, which usually has something to do with that idiot thing you mentioned.

I also said many not all.

The majority of the Murraytards did predict an easy win

Both players were excellent 2nd set though, the tie break was a clutch battle.

Milos winning the title would be great now but Kei doing it in his backyard would be a sweet moment too.
No, but Murray usually plays better and tighter towards of the end of matches- the collapse at the finish line, the most important part of a match, was more do to Murray than Raonic to be honest.

This reminds me of Djokovic losing to Isner in Miami, sort of irritated and unfocused.

Sarcasm. There aren't many Murray tards on this forum. Maybe 2 or 3.

Yep. Even though I heap a lot of praise on Murray, I always refrain from predicting easy victories, both because of my fear of jinxing but also because Murray has habit of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory when you least expect it.

Good play from Raonic, he is mainly a serve bot but he does haave tremendous power in his groundies...but his firess and movement??

Should the 2 meet again in Australia will be straight sets to the US open champion.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013
