Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Damn it, Istomin got from 40-0 to BP only to fail

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Stream lost video...great. Although it's not like we were missing much from Raonic, terrible today so far.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Thanks. Is Raonic awake yet? Doesn't look like it.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Bad from Istomin, terrible from Milos in that game. Overall...this match sucks so far.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Nice of Milos to join the match for the tiebreak.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

I'll believe Milos is ready to take the next step into the top 10 when he stops playing down to competition like he has in this first set. It would be one thing if Istomin was actually playing well, but he wasn't. Even if he doesn't lose when playing down to such competition, it hurts him for later in tourneys (especially slams) when he has to play the real elite guys.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

That was a bit of a combination of Istomin playing bad and Raonic well in the breaker. After a couple chances at the start for Istomin, they were both bad all set

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Istomin apologizing for hitting a virtual winner on first serve return?

I guess he thought it must have been lucky for him to do that.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Lol. Raonic being a major troll. Plays like s**t the whole set then delivers a bagel in the tiebreak.

He can beat guys off the ground better than other servebots once the rally is in play, but he's got to work on that ROS. Got to.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Istomin picking up where he left off in the breaker. Did he get injured or did his level just drop off that much that suddenly?
