Ok, never mind. I finally figured out how to navigate through the site.

He's up against Baghdatis on the 24th.

Right now the site has him scheduled to play not Baghdatis but his old friend "Real tennis" Verdasco

Yup, they changed it.

Good news, I think. Dasco's much better practice for the french.

Milos drew Ruben Ramirez Hildago in the French Open first round. I say Milos has 70/30 chance to beat RRH, a solid claycourter.

its definately not 70/30. He's a crafty veteran and could be tricky

id say more like 60/40

Any channel in Canada showing Raonic's match? If yes, what's the channel number on Bell? I am visiting right now and have a hard time figuring it out . Thanks!

Hopefully he gets on a televised court for round 2, but he is playing an American qualifier so who knows....

Milos will need to serve better (even though he was never broken!) if he wants to get to the Nadal match in round 4. 50% 1st serve percentage isn't going to cut it for him long term on clay.

i dont think i've ever seen him play this poorly before

i wonder if the thought of playing one of the big 3 gets to him? in all his losses i think his worst matches have always been a round before he rean into one of them

I agree that he was playing quite badly. 54% 1st serve and a ton of really wild Backhand errors. He also never changed his approach on the return, I think he could have tried moving up and attacking the net more.

On the positive side, he did very good not losing his shit at the umpire in the 3rd set when he just gave Monaco a set point, and he did a good job winning points on second serve.

I was impressed with his volleying today. He put a lot more of those into the net last year. Especially a few of those low ones he scraped of the ground.

I agree with what the commentators were saying, that he was standing too far back for Monaco's serves.

Anyways, it's always gonna be his weakest surface and all in all it wasn't a bad clay court season.

I seriously hope that's wrong, the guy just started his career, hasn't accomplished enough to warrant this.
