San Jose QF (1) Milos Raonic def (6) Denis Istomin 7-6 (7-0) 6-3

Low quality match outside of Raonic in the tiebreaker. Istomin kind of faded in the 2nd set like the final last year.

All you can really say is another game for Milos and move on to the SFs (vs. Querrey?).

Not a good match. Raonic played great in the breaker and once Istomin was broken in the second he threw in the towel.

Raonic didn't impress IMO... Better raise his level! Just watched the 1st set but immediately when he won it I knew he will win the second set comfortably

Raonic should be Top five very soon

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Another atrocious performance from Milos, but he keeps getting through. Meeting Querrey, however, may mean the end of the road.

Querrey has had it tougher thus far than Milos though. Barely scrapped past both Hewitt and Falla. Not sure how he's played as I didn't see those matches but the scores suggest he's in no better form than Milos.

A Win is a win, San Jose is Milos' playground, 2 more till his 3rd straight title here

There aren't enough indoor tournaments on the calendar for that to happen.
