You either have a short memory or are very young. Federer won 2007 AO without dropping a set.

I do think Milos gets at least 1 set though, and if he plays his best and Fed is off his game he most definately could win

I think this time it's more a case of Federer fanboys always inserting 'Federer in 3' though.

Fed in 3, max 4 sets.

Yes, just like he has in the first 3 matches they played.


Federer should, and is probably going to win. I would not be surprised if Milos can take a set, maybe two if he plays consistent and serves well.

Roger Federer - Milos Raonic

Djokovic - Nadal - Nishikori - Feli Lopez - Pospisil - Peliwo

Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

No I mean sure it can go four sets maybe, but that's it really. Raonic can serve fireworks out of his ass and if Fed is playing a poor tiebreak he might lose a set.
But this is no blue clay, this surface is perfect for Federer when holding serve against inferior opponents. It's very safe and he can speed up just enough when needed. Raonic will be the easier person to break on Monday.

Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

Raonic won`t break Fed most likely. And it`s not about his level of return, but Fed`s serve. Simulteneously GOAT has great touch to cope with huge 1st serves, he is actually awful match-up for bigservers due to this - he knows how return deep even the biggest ones. He won`t be able to repeat Murray`s perfomance against Milos at US, but it won`t be close at all.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

Now this match is surely tougher than the three 'dangerous' opponents he faced so far. I expect him to loose one set somewhere, but his big match experience will pull him out in 4.

Two tiebreaks? - I guess so.

Re: WWW AO R4: Federer vs. Raonic?

I think Fed could be in for a huge battle if this isn't a night session match. Monday is predicted to be a hot one and the fast conditions in the day combined with the closeness of their previous matches has me worried.
