WWW Shanghai R2: Baghdatis vs [12] Raonic

H2h in Milos's favor (2/0), but both matches were tough 3 setters. Who's going to win this time?
Unfortunately they play on not televised Court 3.

Re: WWW Shanghai R2: Baghdatis vs [12] Raonic

If Baghdatis can keep ball in play i think Milos will make many errors, today vs Matosevic Milos played poorly, also both their former matches were close 3 setters and Milos i think can be tired. I think Baghdatis has big chance here for upset. Milos needs high FS% and also attack 2nd serves - Marcos is small guy and not best returner so with high FS% there should be many unreturnables and Milos should hold relativiely easily his service games and also thanks to his height and generally Marcos has low FS% so any game where Milos will have more 2nd serves than 1st serves he should have chances in those return games and attack 2nd serves.

Marcos in two relatively easy sets 6-4, 6-4. I really think that Milos was lucky in Cincy to take the match and he wasn`t looking convincing at all today, IMO. Baggy vice versa looks like found some form.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: WWW Shanghai R2: Baghdatis vs [12] Raonic

baghdatis in 3 if he decides to win. the fact that he will fanny around and donate a set is, of course, a given

raonic needs to serve superbly, and not let his head down if he loses a tie break

hoping for a 3 setter. disgusting that this isn't televised, considering some of the shit that is

Raonic's form is non-existant at the moment. Wouldn't be surprised if Jabba the Hut takes this in 2.

Raonic has put a lot in the last two weeks. Does he have anything left?

Marcos in two.
