This can't be right. I though Raonic was an all-serve clown while Murray was a member of the "Big 4"

Perhaps after this match and Isner's recent great victories, people will stop dismissing players with a great serve? The serve is the most important stroke in tennis, having a game based on serve isn't a bad thing at all.

Milos has the best first serve since peak Karlovic (although nowhere near Ivo's) and has the game to back it up. I hope he keeps improving, we need aggressive players with great serves at the top of the game.

Glorious result for tennis, always great when great serving and aggression defeat pushing, running around and waiting for errors.

@ clowns who just realized Raonic has actually got a game. It's not like he just learned to hit a forehand yesterday.
Yeah, but he has his glaring weaknesses. I don't even think he knows how to do a dropshot yet. lol

But he can overpower the best of them (with a lot of years and room left to improve).

Murray can learn from Raonic. Milos has a much better attitude on court

I will say this. He's got a better chance of winning a slam than Mugray, as time passes.

He should stop swearing out loud like some hooligan in English pub, watching England losing a football match. Tennis is a sport which has no room for this nonsense.

That's one of the main reasons why I despise Muntray.

I think he meant better chance overall, not in the next few slams.

But we all know that can be right, you said it yourself Milos is just like Delpo, as overrated as they come

I personally believe Milos' forehand is even more effective on clay than hardcourt. The spin+pace combination he is able to generate with his forehand is extremely impressive. That ball jumps off the court and is extremely heavy, which makes it for opponents to not hit a weak reply in the middle of the court. And Raonic eats those shots up and isn't afraid at all to step up the court. He's got the ingredients to be a very high level clay courter.

Default Re: Barcelona QF : Raonic def. Murray 6-4 7-6(3)

Really unexpected this Milos´s run in Barca- 4 wins on clay - impressive.

I know he has the game i like him, but i thought he won´t do much on clay- but if we look on it - when Isner can do well on clay Milos should too. His game is similar in term of big serve, big Fh, more time on return, movement, timing.

But his loss to Montanes was so bad last week i thought he won´t make more than 2R in Barca no matter the draw. He surprised me and i am glad. Ferrer probably will be much tougher, but if he will dictate - and serve well he can beat him for sure.

If he can keep improving his footwork, he's a force for sure on clay (and any other surface in general).
