How could you not have Melzer in the poll, he's the defending champ.

Pretty muggy field, except for Haas and Nishikori.

Yeah, Sijsling will be tough, but since he's just come over to the US, and I assume Melzer's been there longer, he maybe has a decent chance.

Raonic's to lose. He's dominated the tournament the last two times, but didn't come away with the win. Third time will be the charm.

He's right in the sense that this is not Raonic's to lose. There's no logical reason to make him the #1 favorite. He has a good shot to win this event, yes, as do Cilic, Nishikori, Isner... I'd hardly call anyone the absolute favorite here.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

I'm not a troll. I don't hate Raonic(just think he is an overhyped servebot). I'm not bitter about Tokyo, Murray demolished him when it mattered most.

Re: WWW Memphis 500

Everyone in the poll except Querrey have a pretty good chance to win it. Haas needs to channel his 2007 form to get past the servebots though.

Re: WWW Memphis 500

Raonic IMO. Cilic is a super clown atm, and Nishikori doesn't seem fit.

And lol at Verdasco. "This is the round I will lose in"

Raonic dominates on this court. There's little reason to think he won't dominate it again. And I suspect when you look at the betting lines for this one, you'll see that Milos will be the favourite.

If any of those things were true, you wouldn't make a post denigrating Raonic in every thread even close to related to him. But please, keep obsessing over him. It's cute that the Barcelona and Tokyo losses still get to you even after Murray won the USO.

Re: WWW Memphis 500

Yea, he could lose to Sijsling, or get a rematch with Cilic and lose again, painful .

I'll be there for the early rounds though (1st/2nd) should be good.. thinking Cilic-Dolgo and Raonic-Isner semis and Cilic over Raonic in the finals.

Both are indoor bombers, Dolgo should be rested enough for a good run.. watch out for Kubot and Sijsling though (Kubot has a weak draw until Isner in the quarters).

I can see him beating all these guys at his best. Man, I'd love to see Hewitt claim an ATP 500 title.

The emergence of Nick Kyrgios is upon us.
