Disappointing from Raonic towards the end of the match. He got into a return game but found the net with a FH in a strong position and then a slice into the net to lose the game. Didn't do much better in the breaker either.

he could have broke to love in that game, won 2 points, and had the other 2 on his racket, and made 2 stupid errors, that pissed me off

Raonic's serve is certainly a huge weapon which makes him dangerous on grass but he doesn't have a lot else to back it up. Only winning 17% on 2nd serve is proof of that. Even when Fed dropped the 1st set, you never thought he was in any danger of losing the match.

I'm sure most players will want to avoid him at Wimbledon because of his serve but you also have to assume a good player who can get a read on it and expose his poor movement will be able to handle him.

As much as I want the young players to do well, it's really hard to root for Raonic. He has a horrible game and he's boring to watch.

Raonic

Hopefully he overcomes this Fedphobia and defeats him as he was supposed to.

Game went exactly as predicted. Raonic had a monster serve and it still wasn't enough. It's enough for one set, no more. That said, his serving in the 3rd set, up to the TB was absolutely flawless, Fed could barely get a point off Raonic's serve, but you can't beat a guy like Fed with nothing but serves.

Fed breaks a 4 tie-break lost streak, which is very important before Wimbledon because tie-breaks often go by streaks and very seldom does he have such bad tie-break streaks.

His game was encouraging even though the serve was not as great as the score lets people think.
I haven't seen him play that well in Halle for several years.

Before grass season, I was less optimistic about Raonic's abilities on grass than many people : I saw today what I thought, that he's more comfortable with high balls from the baseline than with low balls.

That said his serve is impressive and in Wimbledon second week the bounce will be better for him.
Better not draw him in R16

yes, but also he's much more comfortable with a high bounce, both on the forehand and the backhand.
