You forgot movement, but Raonic has the edge there too.

Raonic is already as good as Isner has been at any point in his career and is still getting better all the time. Milos has shown flashes of great play...he just has to get more consistent with it. He'll reach heights that Isner never has and never will.

Re: John Isner / Milos Raonic

I think Isner only has the better forehand and backhand to be honest. Isner plays in long matches but I wouldn't say he has better endurance.

Re: John Isner / Milos Raonic

Isner is 5 years older and clearly has fulfilled his potential more.

Raonic's potential is probably better in almost every field except maybe the second serve. But not a lot better.

useless old guy

Re: John Isner / Milos Raonic

Isner clearly the better server of the two, not even close. Raonic better at everything else.

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

I think you mixed up the names.

Serve: Isner (the 2nd serve definitely gives him the edge, plus the pros agree with this)
Forehand: Raonic
Backhand: Raonic (both weak)
Volley: Raonic
Endurance:
Power: Isner
Movement: Raonic (helped by the fact that he isn't as tall)
Overall better player: Raonic
