Re: San Jose Final Raonic def Istomin 7-6 6-2

Raonic impressive really. Composed as always but moves better, hits better, still plenty of space for improvements.
Istomin won in total 4 points on Rao's serve.

Well done Milos. First guy to 2 titles this year and he could well wrap up a whole lot more (especially when it comes to indoor season at the end of the year...). How far he'll go in his career will depend a lot on to what extent he can keep up this level of serving & how much he can avoid injuries which seem to plague players of his size. Good luck to him...

Hope he enters Basel this year - Fed vs Raonic would be a battle of the indoor king vs the pretender to the throne.

incredible match for raonic. he dominated the 2nd set and dictated the rallies. anyone who still thinks he’s a one-dimensional servebot needs to have their head examined.

istocir did well to reach the final, but he really needs to work on his serve to take it to the next level. it was a pleasure watching him this week (final notwithstanding) and he should have a great season.

Really cool to see him defend the title. Last year was a shock, but now he was practically the favorite. Shows how much he's improved.

Too good. He's improved so much since last year when Verdasco practically choked the tournament away. He looked completely dominant throughout the week, much like he did in Chennai. If he felt any pressure at all, it didn't faze him. It would be a surprise if he didn't do much the same next week in Memphis with the way he's playing.

Another championship for Milos. This is going to be a big year.

I'm just counting down the days now until he reaches Verdasco in titles. Only needs two more to tie the "real tennis" player.
Milos is top favourite to win Memphis. Made the final last year and just barely lost to Roddick, he could easily repeat and snatch the title this year.
