Re: Rotterdam R1: Raonic def. Kuznetsov 6-7 6-1 7-5

That's Andrey, btw, for those who may not know.


:eek: Winnable, but blown. The summary of Andrey's career.

Good job to Raonic for winning it despite playing well below his best. That consistency will serve him well in the top 10/5/however far he goes.

Re: Rotterdam R1: Raonic def. Kuznetsov 6-7 6-1 7-5

I'm sure Raonic would've won in the 3rd set TB anyway, but I wonder if some Raonic fan will consider that 5-5 game in the 3rd set a "choke" too. Cause in 3 of his 4 points in that game, Raonic just pushed the ball and wait for Kuznetsov to make a pee-wee tennis mistake. :smoke:

Nishi-Dimi-Nic (more so the first two) does like to troll. They are just consistent, but they have problems getting to that next step. I think Kuzntesov was close being 30-30 on Raonic's serve but just can't hold it off. I really wonder what is in the psyche of lower ranked players against top guys. They usually have the tools to win but they typically just can't adjust when seeing that finish line (why not think your opponent is a lower ranked player to ease the pressure).

Good for tennis, we really need a Murray/Raonic final here.

Unless Vasek wants to intervene

Raonic looked like he didn't even care out there. not impressed but I know it wasn't near his best.

He did a fistpump at the end.
If not, he should really start caring, because these are the kinds of tournaments he can actually win.
