You forgot movement, but Raonic has the edge there too.

Raonic is already as good as Isner has been at any point in his career and is still getting better all the time. Milos has shown flashes of great play...he just has to get more consistent with it. He'll reach heights that Isner never has and never will.

I think Isner only has the better forehand and backhand to be honest. Isner plays in long matches but I wouldn't say he has better endurance.

Default Re: John Isner / Milos Raonic

Isner is 5 years older and clearly has fulfilled his potential more.

Raonic's potential is probably better in almost every field except maybe the second serve. But not a lot better.

Isner clearly the better server of the two, not even close. Raonic better at everything else.

I think you mixed up the names.

Serve: Isner (the 2nd serve definitely gives him the edge, plus the pros agree with this)
Forehand: Raonic
Backhand: Raonic (both weak)
Volley: Raonic
Endurance:
Power: Isner
Movement: Raonic (helped by the fact that he isn't as tall)
Overall better player: Raonic
