Milos led by a break at the start of each set, but had 33W to 36 UEs.

Expected but encouraging performance from Milos I guess..

too much sloppy stuff from Milos; you don't get away with that against Ferrer. But a decent showing against a tough opponent. Especially as it seems that David was serving pretty well (by his standards).

From mental giant to mental midget it seems. Losing to Ferrer on synthetic HC = :o

Just a matter of finding the lost confidence, Milos played pretty well in some patches but folded in key points, had to be expected at this point.

Closer than I expected, this being only Milos' second tournament back from surgery. Shame he couldn't put together a few more points and taken this one in straights over the #5, instead of the loss. :sad: Good luck next week, build on this! :yeah:

Always a good day when real tennis beats all serve.

how many times are these two going to face each other? always on the same side of the draw, starting to get nuts, what has it been, 4 times in 2011?

EDIT: only 3 times in 2011, I guess I can't get the AO out of my head!!

you think david and milos being in the same draw is rediculous? verdasco and raonic have been drawn to play eachother 7 times this year..reaching each other 4 of those times

Raonic did well to give Ferrer a tough time :shrug: The last 2 points of the match ended with terrible FH shanks by Raonic though :help: :o

Raonic is an overrated player. Apart from the service power, his ground strokes (especially backhand), defense and footwork are pretty mediocre.

He's Isner version 2.0 - he'll win a few 250's and 500's - but a top 5 player or a slam winner? Wishful thinking.

He is a bit like Isner with the big serve and forehand. But he moves far better, makes less errors and obviously will be a better player in the future.
