Almagro was trying to return the 223km/h serves standing straight.

Great match from Milos, in rallies was solid against Almagro, what is good sign, but mostly his serve, i mean c´mmon if guy like Raonic has about 80% FS in he can play close match with anyone from top guys.

Milos's forehand great today, too. Some errors on it, too, but that's part of the deal when you go for the aggressive FH. way to go, Milos! :D

Raonic, not just an all serve mug. One of the best forehands in the game. He was cracking winners all day with his forehand. With his powerful forehands he was able to come in frequently for the easy volleys.

Even some nice backhand winners and ROS winners.

These big servers have very powerful forehand but some posters around wish their favourites could serve as well as they. :p But I think somewhere everybody knows that you are right. :angel:

Just domination. Almagro is no match on this surface for a Raonic playing (and more importantly, serving) that well. Milos has seemingly improved his ROS and footwork over the last few months, too, but let's wait for some real top competition before going too far with that.

The final with Tipsarevic (probably) should be a good one.

You guys better go hide in some mouse hole. How is raonic not an all serve clown when he doesnt have to fight for one point in his games doing all service winners and aces ... I mean really. Get real.

Ignorantly label him whatever you want. It really doesn't matter if he's winning tennis matches.

He has some weakness of course especially with movement but his game more than serve. Of course he is one of the best servers but in form he wins short rallies with his powerful strokes.
Also I guess if someone doesn't need to strokes because has decent serve, he becomes a fantastic servers but that doesn't mean that his serve is his only strength.

Non-fans always say it, I think they think it makes them cool or something, but it really just makes them sound like clowns. It is a thinly veiled way to hide jealousy maybe?

Like someone said all of those big serve players can crack forehands if they get balls in their strike zone, that's not the same thing has having a forehand that doesn't collapse under pressure or on the run, which Raonic doesn't really have at the moment.

It can if that player was the anti-tennis. Like the anti-Christ but worst. ;)

I suppose they are talking about people being jealous against Almagro. I like Milos. So it is a double win for me. Human kind wins because Almagro loses and Milos wins a match.

I am hoping you didn't read the entire thread. Posters who say a result is good for tennis are talking about the loser.

And I think it is safe to say that many posters are jealous of how good Almagro is. Look at how often his name is spelt Almugro for example or read some posts on MTF about him.

I think tennis won, but not for Almagro losing the match.
Tennis won because tennis needs variety of styles, and Milos has one style you don't see everyday, also, with his young age, a victory for youngsters is a victory for tennis.
Go Milos tomorrow :)

So he broke almagro twice with his serve...interesting.

He can crack forehands so he's not an all serve mug. What's your point. :rolleyes:

I am kinda sad for Almagro, as I'm one of the two people on here that really likes him :lol: I think he has a nice game, although he's kinda a headcase. Anyway.. I know Milos and Nico are good friends too, and it's always tough to play against a friend. Nico didn't play bad, but Milos was solid today. Good groundstrokes, forehand and backhand was actually better than I've seen from him in a while. Movement wasn't too bad either. It seems like he's improved some aspects of his game during the off season, and the serve was on fire as usual. It's no shame losing to Milos when he plays as well as he did today. Lets hope he plays just as well against Tipsy. I have Tipsy as a slight favorite in that match-up (Tipsy in 3), but I hope I'm wrong. I want Milos to get this title!

Good luck in the final Milos :yeah:

I haven't taken to Milos as much as I have to other Canadian players for some reason, but I've still enjoyed seeing him rising through the ranks and posting some excellent results.

Hopefully he can win his 2nd ATP title tomorrow.

Don't worry, clay is coming soon. As we know, AlMUGro can't play on hard at all because he lives outside the Earth. Oh and the tennis will lose in every day after his wins. Anyway I don't understand why he loses any matches, he disturbes his opponent with his awful, awful and more awful behavior.

Just watched it on Tennis Channel. Raonic was way too good on serve, and the other areas of his game are not hopeless as others imply. Watch out for him this year for sure.

6-4 6-4 against Almagro on HC isn't domination.
