If they both make it past the second round Raonic will run into Kyrgios next. Should be a close match if both are healthy.

I don't think Kyrgios was well prepared for that match. Understandable considering it took place the very next day after the win of his life.
Agreed. Kyrgios likely did not even get to have sex beforehand.

I'd expect Raonic to win that one unfortunately, Kyrgios' ROS is just not good enough against a big server like Raonic.

Yeah, should be a great match with an average rally lenght of 1.25 shots per point. :p

Why is Raonic considered a servebot and Kyrgios a future star?

Kyrgios has a more solid backand, still mediocre and some flashy trickshots and great volleys.

Raonic has a better serve, better forehand and more power. I guess he's more pragmatic. Sticking with his weapons instead of going for trick shots.

Is that why people like him more?

Kyrgios' volleys are actually comically bad at times.

Yes Kyrgios is a big server, but unlike Raonic he is quick between points. He also has better movement, touch and doesn't just look to thump inside out FHs all day when he finds himself in a rally.

He may or may not be a future star, but at this point in time he is an infinitely more interesting player to watch than Botnic (not a particularly rare achievement mind you).

Raonic is 3 CM taller and has 15 KG more than Kyrgios of course he moves slower than him :spit::spit:

Also as it was already mentioned his forehand is better than Kyrgios. Kyrgios looks like a ballbasher most of the time. Unlike Kyrgios, Raonic always sticks to what he does best and doesn't try any trick shots.

Face it it's not about him being boring compared to Kyrgios is the fact he is a top player and most started to hate him.

Nah Mighty Milos would crush Nick this time, even worse than 2014. Good match-up, and Raonic is finally starting to find his game again in recent times.

3 setter. 7-6(3) 6-3 6-3
