WWW AOR3: Raonic vs Youzhny (10)

01-20-2011, 10:33 AM
What do you think? Raonic was playing really well against LLodra, his 1st serve is great, fast, good accuracy- many aces and so on. Even his 2nd set what used to be weakness by big servers is pretty solid. Yes Youzhny is far better returner than Llodra of Phau, but Raonic has great results in tie-break, great serve. I think after Youzny so struggles with Kavcic, Raonic can take him down.

Misha will slice him to death.

Interesting match up, Raonic has nothing to lose, may play better than against Llodra but will need also luck here and there to beat Youzhny.

I just look on the statistics and really i think Raonic chances against Youzhny are good. Youzhny was leading 2:0 against Kavcic and still it went to 5 sets, so that is not good resume for Mikhail. But here are stats for Raonic game with Llodra
His 1st serve average was 203km/h, but his average 1st serve on the centre line were 214km/h and 219km/h! those numbers are amazing. Even his 2nd serve was amazing 182km/h average speed on the center line :D this guy has serve like Roddick in old times when he was shooting and trying to hit fastest ace:D but he is 1.95m high, so he can move pretty well, guy with serve like Ivo or Isner and none of them disadvantages about movements. I really don´t know how want Youzhny beat him. And his tie-break record on the tour is somehting like 14-5- i am not sure but before the 1st set tie-break with llodra they showed some statistic and i think it was 12-5 so after match 14-5. Really i am looking forward to see what can Mikhail do on the return.

Upset? Hell yeah , Raonic in 5.

01-20-2011, 04:29 PM
Raonic in 4 :D

I have a feeling Raonic will win this, he's looksed superb so far.
Future top 10 player.

Youzhny is a current top 10 player, sure, but he hasn't played well at all this tournament, so he could lose.

I so want Milos to win this:D

The Raonic bandwagon keeps rolling on :worship:

I hope Raonic, but see Youzhny prevailing

I second this. I really want Raonic to win, but I think Youzhny will be the winner.. unfortunately. I would love for Milos to prove me wrong though! :D

Canada needs a top player badly. Raonic will make it there but sooner rather than later would be good. A win here and he will be on the verge of the top 100. I think Roanic will push Youzhny but the Russian will prevail in the end.

In the match against Llodra in the first set Raonic did not even give Llodra a 0-30 lead. His serve was booming at 225 and 228 several times, and even got to 230kmh. If he keeps his serving percentages high and if he pounces quickly on the short ball I can see him winning. Raonic in 4 close sets, something like 3-6 7-6 7-6 7-5 is my prediction
