That's why this Raonic won't win anything big. Can't break his opponent to save his life, only thing he does consistently is serving huge serves.
I think he was really tired today, so I won't take this result too seriously.

Bad result , I really don't like Baghdatis and I want Raonic to break top 10 before AO. Looks like he just played too much the last few weeks. Should rest now to end the season on a strong note.

?Looks like a bit of a contradiction to me.

Excellent win for Marcos, he really needed this one for his confidence.

As for Milos, his atrocious form continued and it was about time he lost early to a decent player such as Baggy. At least he fought till the end which made it more respectable.

Can't break? You did notice he was 2 for 2 on BPs?

I didn't watch the match, someone tell me, did Baggy use his awesome dropshots much?

good win for Marcos, he seems to be regaining some form.

Unless you were there, nobody saw the match as court 3 is not a televised court.

Or maybe Baggy was just muggy, who knows; there wasn't a stream.
Milos ROS stats are awful. I know Baggy can go through periods where he serves really well, but this is a continuing problem for Milos.
why are you surprised? his ROS stats are usually awful

baggy always had the ability to beat milos and he finally did it

Do people really believe this guy can win slams?

It doesn't really matter who he is playing, his matches are usually long and close. Very tough to win 7 matches in a row like that.

With his game right now certainly not.He could produce a surprise here and there but to win lots of big matches in a slam he needs to play a lot better from the baseline and return a lot better.
Right now,he is in a similar spot like Isner.Regardless of the opponent he faces,he will have to play lots of close sets with TB`s and plenty of 4 or 5 setters from the first few rounds.
