If he can play like this on this surface, just wait for hard court season. He'll make it up there, I'm sure.

No problem. Tennis is already way more embarrassed with Rafael making Wimby and USO finals.

I thought Milos played very well too, despite what some of the hating idiots here say. These fools hate what they consider pushers ,Novak or Nadal,but then they condem guys with big serves and hard hitters. Some people are impossible to please, unless it is their favorites.

FWIW, I've never seen anybody return Milos' serve better than Murray did at the 2012 USO. Total GOAT return performance. He's never been able to match that against him since, though, so perhaps it was one time thing.

This match proves that Raonic is not a servebot. He has a quality forehand

People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.

He must improve for tomorrow though
Milos showed his inexperience in the second set tiebreaker he went for big shots when he should have maybe worked the point better. Novak won because Milos made errors in the second set tiebreaker he was VERY close to winning the match. It is pathetic and idiotic for people to call Milos a serve bot like many do on this board. Milos has improved his movement and his volleys and also his return. Milos needs to learn to play BETTER on the big points he had his chances to win this match in two sets.

Milos has also improved his movement and backhand he hanged in the baseline rallies with Novak. This is the best I have ever seen Milos play. But the mental side needs to improve he went too big in the second set tiebreaker. I understand Milos had to game and be aggressive but if he had played a few points better he would have won this match!

Why do players play their best against Djokovic? Really stop it, 'tis not even funny anymore.

Playing like this on slow clay against the world's best shows again what he's capable of when his mind is right.

If he can translate this play to RG in a few weeks, there's really no reason he can't make the R16 (which would be a career best result) or even a QF there.
Milos has improved a lot I am disappointed he lost because if he just was a bit mentally stronger he would have won the match. I felt at 3-2 in the second set tiebreaker was his shot to win. It is ludicrous people call him a serve bot Milos has superior groundstrokes than Isner. Milos has improved his movement but also transitioning and volleying too. The head needs to match the body this was a mental loss for Milos. Novak was under serious threat here hopefully Milos can learn from this loss.
