I also hate matches against Raonic... It will be a hard one, but I think Roger will win in 4 sets.

Good point.

Against a player like Milos, the first set becomes crucial when he hopefully hasn't settled with his serve rhythm. If Roger breaks early and holds serve and bags the first set; even if he loses the second set in a tie breaker, he can still win the third and fourth, because the longer the match goes on, it favours Roger with his big match experience.

Alternatively, if Milos does take the first set as he has in the best of threes they've played, Roger will need to work harder because Milos surely will. though I still feel it will end in 4; in Roger's favour.

Good luck to everyone who's staying up (depending on where you live) for this tonight. I fully expect it still to be going on by the time I get up tomorrow (do they really have 5 matches on court in one day at the AO?!)

Five matches is correct. Three are finished already. The fourth, a Woman's match, will start soon. When this is finished, Fed and Raonic will start their match. I'm looking forward to this one Hope for a good match Having the right man win? Roger that.

We're about to begin, for those who can follow live. I will not be among them, I have to attend a couple of meetings. So I will watch later. Take care of Roger for me

Things are looking pretty good, breaking Raonic in that important moment is something we should be happy about.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Rog has dropped only 3 pts on serve so far? Holy $#!+!

Is it just me or is Roger playing really well? Granted, Raonic is making a lot of errors, but the lack of UEs from Roger is really encouraging.

Not to mention his sexy volleys.

Roger knows how to deal with big servers...
And his serve stats this AO are pretty amazing so far... Let's hope he can keep it that way
Raonic could be a tricky oponnent and you can never count him out of the match, but Roger is handling him so well with powerful serve-games.

I don't want a Tiebreak either, but I think if we get a tiebreak, Federer is in a better position to win it.
Raonic won 9% of the returning points, Federer, on the other hand won 31%.

True. Low numbers, but ours are higher
