This will be epic man. Blake played pretty sweet in his last match, so I don't think this will be easy for the Canadian. I'll go Raonic in tight 3, maybe 4 entertaining sets.

I will root my ass off for Blake for obvious reasons. But I think Raonic takes this in 5.

Default Re: WWW USO R3: Raonic vs Blake

I think back to what happened to Raonic against Hewitt in Australia and this is a very similar set of circumstances. Blake gets the lead but Raonic n 5 - and Blake retires afterwards.

yep that obvious, and obviously that bias is affecting the usefullness of his brain. Of course though, he does think Milos will win, but just won't post it.

I think he's just scared of Milos facing Murray, instead he wants Murray to vulture his point by beating Blake

it's going to be incredibly tight. Milos is mentally tougher though and that should be the difference.

Default Re: WWW USO R3: Raonic vs Blake

This is a very similar situation to Hewitt in Round 3 last January. I hope Milos has learned from that experience because he's going to need to play well and deal with the pressure (and the crowd) to beat Blake.

It's going to be a real struggle, especially if Blake plays anything like he did today. I'm not entirely convinced Milos can do it (as he hasn't had a win like this before), but I'll go Milos in 4. He is the better player right now and should win provided the serve is there.
