Yeah, if he got caught in 40 MPH winds like he did yesterday, he'd have issues. But how likely is that to happen again next week? Even Tomic, who won his meaningless exho yesterday, said that the game they played wasn't really tennis.

The point, anyway, was that nobody should take anything meaningful from that result. Winning it clearly didn't matter to him and his effort showed that. Not to mention the fact that he pulled out of the entire tournament after it.

If he meets any decent returner, he's toast. Raonic is not even top 100 player without the serve and that has been exposed time and time again when he has to rally.

you should wait until serve bot wins anything before you start talking him up ....as topspindoctor said Raonic is a zero without his serve....

I don't expect Milos to win either, that beaind said I don't expect Monfils or Dolgopolov to win either. Just because he's ahead of them doesn't mean he's gonna win, just means he has a more likely longshot than the others. At the end of the day Djokovic, Federer, Murray or Nadal will win it anyway

Well he did completely dominate play against a good returner in Tipsarevic last week, remember? I know you do, because you were trolling in the commentary thread at the time.

If you take away the best aspect of any player's game, they are obviously going to be much worse without it. Thanks for the pointless observation, though.
