That was a really painful match to watch. Mardy looked like he was still really struggling with his thyroid condition from the very beginning of the match, and he is simply not the same person in 2011. Milos was spraying balls left and right and was also completely devoid of energy, but had just a little more fight than Fish today. In all honesty it is a shame that this tournament is a 500 event, while the better quality, better attended, and more technologically-abled event in Marseille is a 250.

I agree. Neither one of these players would have won two matches in Marseille, and yet this is a semi-final of a 500 event. As if the quality of play isn't awful enough, they don't even spend the money to have hawkeye (which has had a huge effect in several of the matches this tournament).

Somebody's got to win these tournaments though, so hats off to Raonic for taking advantage of these weak North American tournaments...

He beats Verdasco in a final. Great. He backs it up a few days later by beating him again. Amazing. He beats a wily veteran like Stepanek, who can look absolutely useless for a few games, then catch you sleeping and turn thing around on you.

Then Kendrick. Should have been easy, right? After all those higher-quality opponents... But we often see inexperienced and lower-ranked players having a let-down after a big win. Eliminate the top dog in one match... and then lose to an easier opponent in the next. Well, Raonic lost his way a bit against Kendrick, but in the end, found a way to win.

Yes, even this tactical tank of the set against Kendrick where he did look a bit tired made sense. In the final set from the first balls it was clear there could be just one winner. He pretty much outrallied those dudes of Kendrick or Fish style, it wasn't just about the serve. His mental side is amazing. Surely he can lose in the final (probably vs. Pony) but has achieved a lot here already. Everything else is a bonus though probably if he loses, the haters will show up and say, "See? Your Milos isn't that good at all! He lost!"

His serves are also placed so well, another thing that reminds me of Sampras.
Any of the top 5 guys (they happen to be top returners as well) would surely spank Milos at this moment but there is no reason whatsoever to think that Milos won't improve. Currently and in foreseeable future top 30 is optimal IMO. it will be fun watching him grow and develop, but then anything is possible in tennis, he might be just another shooting star. (hopefully not, I really like him and wish him all the best)

He moves stiff but his anticipation's great. He serves well with variety and surprise. He has Nadal's head and booms it in like Roddick in his younger years. Champion at SW 19? Dark horse for sure!

come on now.You've never seen the kid on a grass court so how did you come up with him being a dark horse at Wimbledon out of a sudden based on good results on hc? :shrug:

I say move him to his forehand side and keep the ball extra low on something else but a hard court and we'll talk about him being a dark horse at Wimbledon:shrug:

He might be another DelPotro on a grass court and ya know it's not a pretty sight:help::tape:

My heart was pumping big in the match. It just continued the trend this week with Milos! I wouldn't mind if it continued in the final!

GET THE TITLE MILOS!

because for these guys who have clay stuck up their asses, nice ground strokes and beautiful backhands are more important than winning tournaments. These are the pathetic sports fans of the world. It's a joke.

It's about winning matches, nothing else. There is no code on how to win.

“His serve is probably more like [Ivo] Karlovic than [John] Isner,” assessed Fish. “He’s got all the serves than anyone else that I’ve ever seen does. I wasn’t familiar with his game at all; I hadn’t seen him play live. From the waist down he has the strongest legs of anyone I’ve seen. You can tell he still has some growing to do in his upper body and it’s a scary thought to think he’s got ways to improve.”

The quote by Fish only justifies how much of a clown Tabasco is. A body of a 12 year old, what a joke. He is 196cm, almost 10cm taller than Fiasco :rolleyes:

He does pretty much have the upper body of a 12-year-old, as Verdasco clearly spent a lot of time in the locker room checking it out.

What Verdasco failed to extrapolate on is that if he can serve like that with no upper body, just wait until He gets one.

Two years ago, he hardly had legs. One body part at a time.

I've got some video here of his serve when he was 12 years old. Same motion. Amazing.

Baby Raonic already had the serve (http://communities.canada.com/montrealgazette/blogs/opencourt/archive/2011/02/19/the-milos-raonic-story-part-1.aspx)

Another fantastic victory for Milos :worship:. I was unable to watch the match but after last week and this week tournaments I reckon that his body language might not be the best one. I hope he can beat Roddick tomorrow and he should take a rest then :worship:

I think Fish really behaved well. In the end it seems he gave a pretty warm handshake to Milos.

Not much rest for Milos as he will play DC in Mexico.

Wow, that's insane.

I think he should head back to Canada, enjoy some of his newfound popularity, and take a breather for a minute.

Fish had a lot of really nice things to say about Milos after the match. Fish isn't the type to just hand out empty words either. It definitely stands in stark contrast to Fiasco, who actually had the nerve to completely bash a kid who just handed him back to back losses.

he should pull out of that, cause I doubt he can pull off 8 weeks of non stop tennis (san jose + memphis + acapulco + DC + indian wells + miami).

What you are forgetting is that Raonic likes to control the points. He doesn't push. Besides, on grass, he's likely to have Plans B and C to counter the low bounce. First, there's his bazooka serve. Then, he will of course, serve and volley frequently. He will go for the winners instead of extending a baseline duel. He takes his chances with the shots. Chances are, he'll mature fast before Wimbledon arrives having played top players on tour by then.

Raonic is certainly not Delpotro on grass.
