Here's what Raoni said about the Llodra match


THE CANADIAN PRESS

SHANGHAI, China -- Canadian Milos Raonic struggled to defeat Michael Llodra 6-7 (2), 6-2, 7-6 (5) on Tuesday in the first round of the Shanghai Masters.

The 20-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., ranked 31st in the world, has never lost to the 33rd-ranked Llodra and had dropped only one set previously. But Llodra pushed him in a match that lasted more than two hours 15 minutes.

Raonic is still finding his groove after surgery following a injury at Wimbledon.

"I'm not expecting a lot from myself right now," Raonic said. "I'm happy just to find a way to win and hope to get better and better.

"I'm happy with how I fought through it, the game feels like it's coming back. But I'm still missing the instincts, the sense of what to do on the court. I need to regain the competitive spirit. ... I'm just glad I have the opportunity to play again."

You are probably right, but you never know. If the surface is as fast as it was, Llodra may ride the crowd to another big result there. He usually shows up guns blazing in France.

David will break him at least once in each set, the question is will he be able to break him back? Today in rallies quite a lot of mistakes and David is a wall... so i am not optimistic about his next match.
I'm sorry, but WTF did you expect?!?! he literally just came back from a LONG injury break. Of course he won't be playing his best, he just came back ffs! The most important thing is not to win anyway, but to get match practice with a few matches under his belt. Yes, he probably won't win against David, but so what? he gets some match practice, which is the most important thing for Milos right now, to play matches and find his form again

well.. a bit of rust is expected. Milos is definitely not completely back to his old self yet, but he is getting there, and the fact that he managed to pull off the victory, despite it being REALLY hard speaks volumes. Hopefully he'll continue to improve until he gets his old form back

I'm really happy to see that Milos is back on track after the injury, I was in doubt as to whether he would recover enough to post any wins this year but here he is

Big choke in the third but held together nicely in the tiebreak.

oh come on, be realistic. He's hardly played matches against top 50 guys since his surgery and time off. I didn't say Milos was back, just that he was looking more like himself; it's going to take time.

Llodra does this quite often, which is why even though he has an attractive playing style and seems like a nice fellow, I can never really get behind him.
