Also interesting that you cut off at 8 because he's beaten a number 9 player 3 times, and a number 10 player once. Their ranking at the time he beat them I mean

not saying these players compare to Fed but he has what it takes to beat borberline top 8 players and it's only a matter of time until he breaks right through to beating a top 5 player

Don't forget his losing effort to #8 Andy Roddick in Memphis 2011.

Other players that Raonic has managed to beat inside the top 30 have usually been players that are not playing on their favorite surface. For example, clay court players playing on indoor or outdoor hard. Or he has beaten somewhat inconsistent faster hard court players in slower conditions.

Obviously, he also has trouble winning against higher quality players with good return games, even on surfaces that might favor him (ala Memphis and his loss to #38 Melzer).

His "breakthrough" event was probably the 2011 Australian Open where he successively defeated #24 Michael Llodra and #10 Mikhail Youzhny, before losing to #7 David Ferrer.

He then beat #9 Fernando Verdasco two matches in a row in 2 successive Indoor Hard tourneys.

He then lost (inc. 1 retirement) to Verdasco in 2 clay court events and lost easily to David Ferrer on clay.

In 2012, he had his best tournament to date in India at Chennai Outdoor Hard successively beating #10 Almagro, and then #9 Tipsarevic in 3 tiebreakers where Raonic served extremely well.

So, I think it will be difficult for Raonic to beat #3 Federer unless Federer is too sick.
Raonic would probably have to serve at 80% first serves or better to have a chance, and then he would have to break Federer, or beat him in the tiebreakers. Also, Federer is quite good against big servers and once he has read their serve (usually within a few services games) he uses their own pace against them to often block return winners. It will be a very difficult task for Raonic. Federer should win in 2 sets, unless Raonic serves very well and can take Federer in a tiebreaker.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Agree. He needs another breakthrough event.
The question is if and when that will happen.
The where doesn't matter so much at this point.
He is still young (just turned 21), so he probably still has a year or two to improve and break through.
He's a bit one dimensional at the moment, so he needs to improve his all around game to have a chance against top players.

Respectively,
masterclass

Probably Federer in 2, but I'll just say the Raonic in 3.

Of course you count players ranking at the time for the meeting.
Milos got the game and the mind. Sure.
I guess I just wanted to illustrate he still has alot to prove against the bigger guys.
He's 0-6 against top 8 players and needs a win against the top guns to boost his confidence.
But he's got time on his side. Is he 22 this year?
Unless Fed is ill, I don't see him beating Roger. Now.
