Default Raonic: Gap between top 4 and youngsters not big

http://tennis.com/articles/templates...6538&zoneid=25

I am not sure about this statement, basically he said he just can beat them in Tie-breaks, but really i think the gap is there much bigger in other aspects of game, like movement, return, baseline game, Nole or Rafa are too solid, but for example i can see him take down Rafa in San Jose- or other indoor fast courts

He's absolutely right. He didn't say youngsters are as good as Big 4 overall.

The big 4 would have struggled a lot against him at San Jose. On slower court he doesn't stand a chance except maybe against Federer.
Lets see what he does at IW and Miami where everyone is playing and we will see the gap.

Other youngsters arent in Raonic's league yet.

I thought that Federer was the one eating big servers for breakfast.

On slower surfaces the difference in movement, deffense, return and baseline consistency is too big for now, last year IW-Miami was very dissapointing from him, hope this year he can fullfill expectations

Not anymore, Federer isn't that great on returns anymore and they can get a look on Federer's serve.

This guy thinks that the gap between the top 4 and the rest of the field isn't so big? The same guy who put up such an "impressive" display against Nadal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBk1Vx-NduM

Ok then. I guess beating up on Istomin makes you higher than Northern Lights.

Not really but that is irrelevant any way.

Raonic 2010 = Raonic 2012. You lady, are a genius.

true or false, its the right attitude to have. you need to believe you can compete at the top level and set your goals accordingly. if you are lucky you may one day win a slam.

Will Raonic 2012 get a set off Nadal or Djokovic? I'd wager that he'll probably get breadsticked next time he comes up against Rafa.

Both his matches against Rafa are not telling much, it was on faster outdoor HC what should favour him, but first match in 2010 Rafa was playing great, confident after USO that he won and won also Tokyo, on other side Milos in 2010 was not the same guy like 2011 and not even close to right now 2012. Their 2nd clash in Tokyo - Rafa was playing again great, made F in USO and F in Tokyo too, on other side Milos was after major recovery-hip surgery, he even lost before Tokyo in DC against Weintraub... so he was out of form, was happy that is on the tour.

Default Re: Raonic: Gap between top 4 and youngsters not big

nonsense. the gap between top 4 and the rest of the field is simply huge. I mean, it's good that Milos is positive but he is also being delusional. like it or not, Novak and Rafa would spank Ranonic or Tomic anywhere any day. I simply think that none of these youngsters are that good. too bad, too sad.

what have these youngsters really achieved? nothing really.

Raonic can't even beat an old infirm Lleyton Hewitt at this point in his career so I don't know why he's talking about the top 4 like they're within striking distance. (Well, they're within striking distance but not his)
