How come Milos has to play Roger too often?

He will have a crack one day; their matches are always close. There will be tie breaks for sure, and Fed needs a break early. Yup; I am a bit apprehensive.

Raonic is at the same stage in his Fed rivalry as Del Potro was in Basel. You knew the pony was due a win just as you know Raonic is due one any moment now. Wins in 4 sets. Fed expended a lot of energy fending off 3 incredibly tough/talented opponents so far.

Exciting match, full of beautiful points, 5 tight sets, tennis lovers on the edge of their seats, battle of the serve titans ....... and Fedmug loses.

the match against davy? incredibly talented/tough? he gave away dozens of unforced errors! davy is a joke of a player these days.

the only time a player has played genuinely GOOD against fed in AO so far, is tomic in the 2nd set! thats it.

time for raonic to show his potential. his serve is GOD mode. a tennis analysts' wet dream!

Raonic is a genuine danger. He's in form. He has some big match experience and if the schedule is day time, the weather is in his favor.

Someone on MTF recently said just because a genius makes it look easy does not mean it's not tough. The point is the energy expended in dealing with though opponents. Mental as well as physical.

raonic
M.Raonic CAN 3 71 71 aces in 3 matches!

one of the best servers i have ever seen! right up there with guys like isner, joachim johannson, and sampras, becker, scud, krajicek, karlovic, roddick at their peaks.

This match should be at night. Murray will be playing some cannon fodder Frenchman, so this should definitely get the night session. If not, then Roger's fitness should help but I'd like him to play at night, so he's not as exhausted.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

In last two matches Fed was 6/29 on BPs . regarding the fact that Raonic's serve will solve too many chance issues this match should be a walk in the park for fed
