That's my opinion, I'm totally serious.

Guy Forget, French Davis cup captain, and former doubles world number 1, said that this double match was a very good match and that he was delighted watching it :

OK for Raonic's and the Canadians' serve, not for the rest

He was good in this double, it was a very good doubles match, and a tight one.

Canada's double surely could have won this, then Raonic could beat Tsonga.

They lost the double, Canada now had very little chance, and Raonic was painful : even if it was not that bad (which has still to be confirmed), the decision to withdraw is understandable.

Anyway Big servers vs bad returners are never good matches.

Raonic will not play the exhibition doubles match but he will go to San Jose and see if he can play. His first match wouldn't be until Wednesday anyways, so he has some time to see if his knee gets better.

If it's an inflammation type of injury, a few days off might be enough for it to subside

Use that money to buy a brain Brentos. Looks like you really need one.

As for Raonic, i just hope it isn´t serious. The circuit needs his game.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

I have such a low opinion of Raonic. I feel as though he is overrated beyond belief having seen him live numerous times in Melbourne.

Re: Raonic withdraws from Tsonga match.

I'm amused by how this tie was supposed to turn based on Monfils' knee issue and it turns out that Raonic's knee actually became the deciding factor.

they're not gonna let the hometown boy sit this one out. Vasek probably wants to redeem himself and put on a better showing than Day 1 anyway.

But Roddick didn't taked that easy. 7-6(7) 6-7(11) 7-5 to Roddick.
