Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

A focused Raonic is too much for Cilic to handle. And I think he will be after that awful Sock loss last month.

If serves and forehands didn't count, you'd be right.

Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

Cilic is a bad matchup for Milos..his serve is good enough to make Milos hard to break and his return is also good enough to get some look on Milos' service game.

No,I'm not suggesting they are overranked.But they both lack big results in big tournaments,especially Cilic.
So,everyone is a vulture one way or another I like vultures.

Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

Milos generally starts slow in tournaments (IMHO it is getting feel for surface in match conditions rather than a lack of focus against lower ranked players that is his problem) ... so since this is his first match because of the WO, AD to Cilic. But if Milos finds his game, and is playing anywhere near what he did in SJ vs Hass / Querry, I think he wins.

Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

Depends which Cilic will show. If Marin will play good he will win because he like big servers. He has good return plus he is better baseliner and his serve is too good for average returners.
Problem is he lost badly to Nishikori and that could be a problem. He thought he will jump into top 10 but he false and self-confidence is low now (it was obvious how happy he was beating just Ramos).

Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

One curiosity, Marin is on the run 13:0 vs left-henders (it's not I didn't know he is good). He is great vs big servers, too. And in best-of-five.
