Honestly if andy's not going to win the whole shebang (and he's not, people), then this is when I want him to go out. Better than losing to cilic, fed or nole and gives the young one a chance.

Interesting to see that the most poll choices are for a 4-set match.

Can't wait for this tennis 101 lesson. You're going to see Murray using his repertoire of shots to confuse Milos and expose his poor movement. Murray doesn't need to be in his Olympic winning mode to win this. He can beat Raonic by ball placement alone. He just needs to return well and the match is won.

Andy Murray in 4 sets, and I think there will be 1 TB.

I think Andy in 3. He'll know he has to step up a level here and he will do what he has to do. Murray will get more balls back into play than anyone else does against servebots and, be able to exploit his poor movement with his variety.

I'm a bit scared for Muzza.

If he plays like against LaLo, the he can start packing already. But I feel he will be more motivated and hungry for this match (wants revenge) and will surprise us by winning in 3 or 4 sets!

Raonic won't be able to break Murray unless Murray breaks himself. On the other hand Murray is one of the best returners on tour and should hopefully be able to capitalise on at least one poor service game from Milos. Don't think Barcelona has much bearing - Murray had some injury issues, it was clay, a 500 - hopefully this will be on Ashe which again gives Murray an advantage as Milos has never played there.

Hoping Andy recovers well from yesterday and is back fit for tomorrow. Andy actually has variety to watch - Milos is the dullest player ever to watch - at least with Isner I can marvel at his second serve sometimes - with Milos there's nothing to be excited about. Murray losing would be a terrible result for him.

Andy in 4.

I dunno, it's very close between servebotism and cynical pushing Murray showed against Lopez

Murray was bad against Lopez sure but pusher is not his only mode - even if it is what he reverts to when struggling. He can be aggressive on the return and go for his shots. Clearly is a complete player - great at net, baseline, great first serve etc. Raonic couldn't provide the kind of matches Murray did this summer with Olympic F, Olympic SF etc. where you marvel at the shots. Murray belongs in the top 4 with regards to the quality of his shots and his overall completeness. Tsonga, Berdych, Ferrer etc. clearly a level below and all of elements of their games missing. Raonic not even in conversation.

Murray's worst incarnation is annoying but still better for him to prevail than Raonic IMO.

Murray is the much better player watch. So much variety, he can produce great defence, incredible shotmaking. Raonic is very boring and one dimensional.
