Two up-and-coming young players who have both already made quite an impact in 2011. Great opportunity to get into the semis of an ATP event here and win some nice points! :D

Milos will DESTROY him. Berankis is a limited player another boring workhorse. He cant contain Milos at all. 6-3 6-1, M.Raonic

Tough call. Two rising stars of ATP I hope, both in a quarter of a "250" tournament. Good sign for ATP.
I will go with Raonic because he looks most matured from all of this bunch of youngsters.

AO was only 1 tournament, we saw a dark horse Milos Raonic but after AO began a new story. How many times we saw temporary good play in tennis ? 100 times we saw ''1 tournament player'' in tennis is the most important ''step by step'' your skills improvement. Berankis is very good example of this ''step by step'' situation. Milos Roanic for me is overrated and when i see odds on him 1.4 i just smile. I said it before his match against Simon Greul and Greul trashed him in straight sets. So, bookies simply overrated him in Johanesburg, they still lived in AO but this slam was a history.
I dont say that he isnt good, he is very dangerous with strong serve but he will have to show that game, what he showed in AO, in more tournaments. After yesterday, when Berankis choked this match will be no bet, 50/50.

One I wouldn't mind watching - the key will be Raonic's serving performance and Berankis's ability to return it.

never met in the juniors according to ITF website

the surface probably favors Raonic but Berankis is a good counterpuncher

Milos said on his SAP Open blog, they played a match in U-12 or U-14 and they practiced together with Berankis lately.

Berankis in 2.

Milos is done if he loses his serve, and I have a feeling he will in at least one of his service games.

I think Miloš will do it, but I could live with a Berankis win as well.

i think berankis in 3

rycka struggles more, as we saw yesterday with players that are more his size and have similar games. He doesnt seem to get to many problems from big servers so im not to sure milo's serve will be that much of a rpoblem for him

to me if berankis,is playing and returning well he should win.

I will give you an idea, if you think bookies are so stupid, go and put $500 on Berankis. It will be a good payday...........(for the bookies :) )

You´re way too pessimistic, dude :lol:

Milos could be broken by Berankis, yes, but he also can break him back, so I doubt he is losing in 2 sets, really.

I´ll go for Raonic in 3

I think that Raonic would have to serve below-par to lose. Berankis has great talent, but he can totally lose the plot (yesterday's match against Young is a prime example) and he cannot afford to do that against a player as dangerous as Raonic.

Berankis didn't look sharp yesterday, as he had trouble to close the match against one of the mentally weakest player there is in Young.

Raonic is pretty strong mentally, and the surface helps his game. But i'm a fan of Milos, so take it for what it's worth ;)

Berankis practiced with Haas lately- so Miloš in 2

quick indoor hc plus size and power advantage for milos. if he executes he’ll overpower berankis in straights.

6-3, 7-5 real deal.
