I think it'll go three sets. Hard to pick a winner cauz I like both, but I'll say Raonic because of experience. Both have a decent ground game (maybe Istomin's is a bit better :shrug:) and both have a decent serve. IMO, I think their respective net games will be the crucial element in deciding the match. Can't wait for tennis to prevail here :rocker2:.

Loving the Istomin run here but Raonic seems clutch and confident.

I know Istomin can also be clutch against several players but Milos should be a different league, taking into consideration it's the final, and it puts a special pressure on less experienced players.

I haven't seen Istomin this week but knowing his and Raonic's potential rather tough to expect other solution than straight sets win for Mr. Robot.

i am liking raonic in this one but he has to serve big and play his own brand of attacking tennis.

there is no place to hide if raonic is really on today.

The event is well organised, can see another disturbing something when Istomin serves. Just like last year at Verdasco's serve.

Milos in 2. Might struggle if the serve isnt on form.

I'm definitely rooting for Istomin- he played really well against Benneteau and can do more than just serve. Plus Raonic is "injured."

No he is not, why do you have that impression?

Istomin can be one hell of a player when playing well (like when he played Nadal at Queens, US Open and Berdych at Wimbledon), his backhand is really simply stunning to say the least.

However with Raonic's serve I can't see him returning it well enough to pose a big threat, but I can see him taking a set.

Raonic in 3.
