I'd be shocked if Cilic loses this

Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

I think marin should win this if he plays well. He does virtually everything better and he has a return good enough to break through milos's serve

Everything? Besides serve, Milos has by far better forehand.

Cilic is good against slow guys who can't chase much balls, but still if it comes to tie breaks, Milos should win.

Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

The question is,who is a bigger vulture out of the two?
Both have 2 Masters QF's,however Raonic has a 500 final and only 1 250 win compared to Cilic's 3.So yes,Marin is a bigger vulture

Cilic has a Slam SF and two QFs, Milos yet to reach a QF. Cilic has 9 250 titles, Raonic has 3, neither has a 500. Neither is a vulture though.

Regarding the match, Cilic should win but he often loses matches he should win so let's see what transpires. Both players are eager for a breakthrough and have looked quite good in patches this season.

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

Re: WWW IW R3: Cilic vs Raonic

Raonic vultured San Jose in the last two years. His first title was okay, though.

I'm afraid you have no argument there, there's no rational basis to suggest either Cilic or Raonic are overranked at the moment. It might be true that a good share of their ranking points comes from smaller events, but it's not like the guys ranked below them - or rather in the same area of the rankings - are getting any better results in the big events - well on the contrary.

If he plays well he can win, but Milos has also something to say here - he does virtually everything better - you are kidding right? Milos has by far bigger serve and his FH is bigger too, also netgame is better - btw serve is most important shot in tennis and FH is at most players the stronger wing so yes Marin does everything better.....
