All Raonic does better than Murray is serve. And his serve isn't even that effective on clay - it is still great but breakable.

Besides Murray is the best player on tour at getting big serves back in play. Overall, Djokovic is a far better returner, he's more aggressive, gets more winners off the return. But at blocking the big serves/getting the ball back in play, Murray is the best. Three years ago at the USO, Cilic punished those blocked returns with brutal forehands and crushed Murray and so have many other players over time.

But Milos's forehand isn't that reliable imo, I can't see him overpower Murray. This is a terrible match-up for him, he needs his strokes to be really fine-tuned in order to compete for the win.

Murray will win this, no doubt.
I hope Raonic to surprise the world again, but I don't think it would happen.

Whatever, a possible scenario is Raonic taking the 1st set 7-5 or in a tiebreak, and then Murray plays like he knows winning the remaining sets 2 and 3.

Haha, no. If Raonic gets it to one tiebreak, I'll be surprised.

No, Milos is not winning
good for Raonic then that he is playing Murray and not Djoker

Murray and with total ease. His biggest strength is returning serve and he should eat up Raonic. Even though both guys are pretty unexperienced on clay and its their least favorite surface the match up really favors Murray. 3 and 3 for me.

If Raonic does pull the upset here watch out. That speaks volumes to me about his game.

I think Murray takes this one.

Raonic better not pull out again, I'm interested in watching this one.
