GO Milos!!!
The new star in the old tournament for the first time.
I'm excited about this, I mean, just imagine this guy, he'll make his first step on that grass, and he's beeing seeded in his first Wimby.
That's ubercool.

I think the draw will be very important to know what are Milos chances. There are a lot of dangerous players that won't be seededs, and also there'll be seededs players who don't play well on grass and could be upseted. Anyway, wihtout knowing Milos draw I hope he reaches 3rd round, when the draw is made we will know if he has possibilities to advance further or if he has hard opponents in first matches

Looks like he is the most dangerous player 25-32, and whichever seed 1-8 draws him will not be happy. Unfortunately, that is a small consolation prize.

Hopefully he gets at least R3 so that he builds up the bonus Wimbledon points next year.

misty1
06-17-2011, 11:52 AM
so milos will get:

fabio fognini in round 1

gilles muller or tommy hass in round 2

rafael nadal in round 3

with this draw round 3 is as far as he can go. However its entirely possible he goes out to muller in round 2..he will be a very dangerous opponent for sure. Im not to concerned about fognini in round 1

Emeraldhands
06-17-2011, 12:31 PM
We all said that about Berrer so let's be careful but I do have to agree that Fognini should not be an issue. Second round is going to be tough no matter who he gets. Let's hope that he finally gets another crack at Nadal. I am sure that Nadal is not to thrilled to see Milos in his section of the draw.

Just like everywhere else this will be a learning experience this year. He wasn't going to win Wimbledon so...

Possibly getting a third round match on centre court the first weekend against Rafa would be fantastic :) Of course, its not a done deal he gets there.

its going to be very hard to get past round 2..we'll see

Blarghman
06-17-2011, 01:14 PM
Yeah, tough draw for Milos, Fognini is pretty much the highest ranked guy he could have played R1, even though he shouldn't be a huge threat on grass, Muller will be a tough challenge, and of course Rafa should mean R3 is his limit.

Hopefully by the USO he is out of this 25-32 section, getting the top seeds in R3 really sucks :(

he's not ready yet so its no use imagining him doing it, although i know how much everyone here would love it. There's just certain guys he isn't ready to beat yet and nadal is definitely one of them

and you shouldn't even look past muller/haas. He's got one of the most difficult 2nd rounds possible

Lets get there first, shall we :lol:

Milos played well against Rafa. So did John Isner at the French Open. Anything's possible.

As misty says though, Milos for the forseeable future is a hardcourt player. This clay-grass stretch of the ATP calendar was always going to be a learning experience. Should he lose Fognini or Muller, I wont be too upset.

RogerExpress
06-17-2011, 06:20 PM
Hard draw for Milos, Fognini in R1 isn't an easy opponent, he's in the best moment of his career and if Milos doesn't play well the italian could upset him without problems. If he past Fognini I think he will play Gilles Muller, and if both players are serving well (and if there is a 5th set) prepare for the second part of the movie Isner and Mahut started last year :P. Third round would be the end, if he serves well and doesn't make a lot of errors I think he could give fight to Nadal, maybe take a set, but not more than that.

LawrenceOfTennis
06-17-2011, 07:27 PM
I can see him playing Nadal in the 3rd. Just because he lost to Petzschner, he is still dangerous on grass. Petzschner's an excellent mover on the surface. He definetely can trouble Nadal, of course no chance for a win but a big chance for an enjoyable clash.

yeah, muller and milos could be a very long affair, if they are both serving well its going to be very hard for either one to break and it would just come down to who breaks down first.

A small detail about Milos's practice plans for Muller in a column (http://www.thestar.com/sports/tennis/article/1012096--cox-raonic-makes-wimbledon-debut-in-style) from Damien Cox:


Instead of being part of the backlog, Raonic now has the advantage of being able to prepare himself knowing he won’t be playing again until Wednesday and knowing the identity of his next opponent. For that, he’s planning to hit on Tuesday with Spain’s Feliciano Lopez, a tall, left-handed big server similar to Muller, the world’s top junior a decade ago, who hammered 37 aces himself on Monday.

Raonic’s father, Dusan, arrived in time to see his win over Gicquel, as did his brother, Momir, who lives in Montenegro. Neither, however, will be staying at the house he’s rented a block away from the All England Club. The idea is to focus with his “team,” led by coach Galo Blanco, and reap the benefits garnered from his painstaking efforts on European clay courts in recent months that forced him to learn to stay in points longer.

viruzzz
06-21-2011, 04:00 PM

Um, windy conditions tomorrow . . .

so i'd expect the ace count to be not as high as expected.

(against some other player, it would put milos at a disadvantage. but since gilles relies heavily on his serve too, it should be interesting)

misty1
06-21-2011, 11:04 PM
it might favor gilles slightly more

he will have more experience playing in the wind and should be able to addapt quicker then milos, who i dont think has played alot in windy conditions

You didn't even see shit. If you watched the start of the match, you would have seen Milos break Muller who was getting almost all of his first serves in. You would have seen Milos clearly have the advantage in any neutral rally, and you would have seen almost no returns in play from Muller.

Bad luck, but next hard courts! Great opportunities in the next couple of weeks to get into top 20.

That really depends on how bad his injury is.

If is just something he can recover from quickly then I agree he has his chances to make top 20 if he plays well.

I wouldn't be surprise to see Milos not make the top 20 this year thou..

We will just have to wait and see how bad the injury is. Normally the groin is a very bad area and needs to be back to 100 percent or else it is really easy to re-aggrevate

According to the Toronto Star, Raonic spend the rest of the day at a local hospital getting an MRI. The Star report said Raonic had a hip injury.

"I knew right away. I didn't think I could even lift my leg. It was a pretty sharp pain...it's too soon for a diagnosis on what it is. But it's something pretty deep in the hip."
:sad: poor Milos... hope he gets better soon.

Yeah, he was playing well and intense during those first couple of sets.

I agree that he should skip Davis Cup, and focus on recovering for US/Canada hard court season.

Looks like it is not a severe injury, just a ligament strain. Seems like he is targeting a return for DC, hopefully he isn't rushing it, but obviously it's hard to say without knowing more details.

Story (http://www.thestar.com/sports/tennis/article/1013707--hip-injury-not-serious-raonic-hopes-to-play-in-davis-cup-tie?bn=1)


“It was an unfortunate situation in yesterday’s match, but (I'm) looking forward to returning to Wimbledon in 2012," he said. "I have since been working with the doctors, and I strained some ligaments around my hip and doing some more tests just as a precautionary measure. I am hopeful that I will be back practising in the very near future and looking forward to Davis Cup."

Good news, I was worried that it could have been a more substantial hip or groin injury.

I hope so as well. I don't consider DC to be important enough to play injured.

And if he does go, Laurendeau better not sign him up for 3 matches again like against Mexico. That certainly won't help things

Can we bring him to DC and have it so that he would only play the last singles match (if required)?

Anyways, very good that it isn't too severe. I think his problem on the play was that he slipped, started to regain his footing and then slipped again.

Happy to see that his injury is not too serious!
I totally agree that he should skip DC if he's not at a 100%!

Do you guys think he will miss any of the Hard court season befor US Open? I hope not because he loves the hard courts there.

There's no way he'd miss Rogers Cup in Montreal.
