Milos Raonic not leader of 90s generation

In Canada, Milos Raonic gets a lot of press he is a top player BUT I think he has limited potential. To Milos credit he is a hard worker he has lost weight and worked on his fitness and movement. But in terms of talent his backhand is shit. I am very surprised a smart guy like Raonic cannot see he has a poor backhand? The technique of the backhand is wrong it looks like Milos is hitting backward with the backhand not forward. His weight is not transferring properly when he hits the shot. I thought by now Milos would of reached one or two slam finals yet he has not. I have a feeling one of the younger guys born in the 1990s will breakthrough before he does. I like Milos but the constant injuries are a serious problem he either has a poor fitness trainer or someone else not doing their homework. How can a man so young have so many injuries? He works hard though. But the biggest issue is Milos does not do well with his break point conversions. He had seven chances to break Albert Ramos yet he only broke once! This is the biggest problem he relies too much on the forehand to compensate for the shit backhand. I do not see Milos winning a slam until he fixes the backhand it is technically flawed.

Make all the jokes you want but milos raonic is a lot of hype and no results. No asters titles and no slam finals. He is just media hype 25 years old now getting kind of old for a breakthrough. He has a shit backhand he should of fixed years ago. The backhand is so poor the low ranked guys like Albert Ramos exploited it. For someone who is smart like Milos why is he so stupid? The backhand he has is a disgrace just a shit shot. To beat the top 5 you need a complete game.

Outside of Canada there is no hype.

Not true the usa and British media have hyped Raonic for years. He is the best player North America has at the moment but the technical flaws in his game have held him back. You cannot challenge the tip five without a complete game.

It's tough time even for Feder, Nadal, Murray to win slams. I mean, come on, how talented is Raonic really compared to them?

It is because Canada is a big market that is why Milos is so hyped. The truth is Fed and Nadal made ATP/ITF very rich and once other coaches and federations saw the big price money they started to talk a lot against Fed and Nadal. But younger guys are not ready yet for big matches. All of them are there more for money than for the game.
Yesterday our comms were talking how Thiem has got a financial problems and his parents have sold an apartment so he could play but he has not got good results and liked to quit playing tennis. The same i heard for Cilic when he won USOpen .

Re: Milos Raonic not leader of 90s generation

He's the leader in terms of ranking, but I agree there's a big chance someone else grabs a slam final or win before him.

25-26 years of age is nothing today, on the other hand. Arguably it's not even half way of a career.

Re: Milos Raonic not leader of 90s generation

It is obvious there is a lot of hurt feelings between Milos and Ivan. I suggest Milos take Ivan out to dinner and talk to get one on one to get closure.

I think Ivan saw Milos having limited potential so he dropped him for Federer. The AO was good for Raonic BUT again was he really injured in semifinal loss to murray or just got tight and nervous? I thought he really was going to breakthrough at the AO this year. It looks like Milos has regressed from positive start to year.

There is no hype around Raonic in Britain. Whoever told you that is lying.

Better make it a candle-lit dinner, so they're in the right mood.

The real question is: does he give off the gay vibe?

Personally I find it odd that Ivan could think he would have much impact on the Federer game and that Federer would take him. Do agree there have been holes in his game since the strong start to the year.

I think Ivan got frustrated with Milos getting injured so much that he split. Milos admitted it was Ivan who dumped him. Ivan probably hoped Federer would have a bigger impact but I think he did not realize Federer at almost 35 his body is breaking down.
