Default Memphis R2: Raonic d. Stakhovsky 6-4 6-4

"Mr. 8-time-bounce before the serve" is 13-1 this year


Someone should tell Gulbis and Stakhovsky that at the warm-up before a match against Raonic they should exercise the serve a bit more than usually. In most of matches holding the first service game isn't vital, but against Raonic it is. Guys of the big 4 may allow themselves to lose the opening serve to Raonic but other guys being broken against the Canadian on fast courts in the opening game are basically finished.

The only interesting thing in the match - two under-arm serves from Stakhovsky.

In this form Raonic in April should become the first Canadian in the Top 20.

Some of Stakhovsky's weirdness may have confused Milos here and there, but he was good enough overall.

Looking forward to viruzzz's demonic incantations.
Ajde!

Stakhovsky at least made the match interesting with his ridiculously stupid antics at the end. Other than that, he was terrible and Milos was pretty mediocre.

Milos moves on like he had to, though. Rochus next on the road to the final.

clinical, methodical.....brutally efficient. rao’s opponents simply have no room to breathe or to find their rhythm. the intimidation factor is increasing as well.

Yeah, Milos' serve seem to make Stakhovsky lose his mind at the end. He just gave up.

If he wins this tournament (and he really should...he's better than everyone left in the field on these courts), isn't he in the top 20?

I think he looked rather tired. (Raonic)

Somehow, I don't think he's operating at 100% energy capacity.

I did a 'what if' quick look after San Jose and I think Milos may be around 19 if he wins in Memphis. :-)

He's playing through pain in his knee...has been for weeks now. So he's not 100% at all. He'll take a break before Indian Wells.

Source: Raonic plays through pain

Upon arrival in San Jose ... he consulted a noted orthopedic surgeon at the Stan-ford Medical Centre and had a proper MRI done. The results - no results, really, just some wear and tear on the tendon - assuaged Raonic's concerns about doing long-term damage to the knee by continuing to play.
[...]
It was hardly that easy. Raonic began taking a combined painkiller/anti-inflammatory medication, even for practices. But he still felt it.

"The painkiller made that [the pain] wasn't really constant. But I felt it if I jammed my leg, or maybe on a long point if I stopped a little bit aggressively," Raonic said.
[...]
That aching left knee is the one that bears the brunt from his serve, the one he lands on. And with all the work on the other side of his body, in the wake of last July's surgery on his right hip, he said the left side got a little weak biomechanically. The quad is putting more of a load on the knee tendon, hence the wear and tear, the tendinitis.
