I would say that Milos knows his body better than anyone else and that he's the one best able to make such decisions, but he's had a history of making the wrong decisions in this regard. Hope you guys are right and this one isn't another one.
Kevin Hart - all 5 feet of him - has been the MVP like three years in a row. Its a joke. Relax.

New Balance has made a big deal about Raonic's shoes (I guess that could be the next great twitter thing, especially after his bright orange ones at AO).

Milos Raonic Celebrity Game Shoe - New Balance Article

One neat little bit he had them do though:

I wouldn't be where I am today if my parents didn't make that move, and I definately wouldn't be playing as part of this weekend." - Milos Raonic.

I think we've finally found the thing that matters more to Milos than his tennis career...the NBA.

I was thinking the same thing, but he's said he's been doing off court training, just nothing on the court yet. And really it's a celebrity game, nothing real competitive there.

I see what you're saying and I agree to some extent, but to be fair it was only a small tear (2 cm) that is probably mostly healed (it's just not ready for heavy practice), and it's only a celebrity game where they won't be moving at full speed. If he plays 5-10 minutes at a medium pace then the risk to his physical health is small and can be managed, but it is the gain to his mental health that shouldn't be overlooked here.

Focusing and defining yourself entirely by your work is not a healthy thing to do, especially if work is not going well (I speak from experience here). People need hobbies and passions outside of their job to keep themselves in good mental health. I'm happy Milos has this opportunity to be involved in something he loves this much, and that he is taking the time to enjoy some of the benefits of his hard work and celebrity status. IMO he drifts a bit too far into the workaholic category at times, so it's good to see him take this type of break.

Talked to the admin of Milos Raonic Fan Club, he is usually spot on when regarding him. He said he will go back to tennis on 22.

Ok so with all the quibbling about what sport Raonic should be playing (hey I guess Isner and Karlovic should have gone for Basketball as well cause you know....they're tall).

Hopefully he's ok for DC at the latest, Acapulco would be nice though.

He may be there on the sidelines, but I can't imagine he'll be playing basketball if he can't play tennis the following week.
