Yeah, I thought he was injured? Or maybe he just hates Canada and threw the tie?

I think he hit 155 mph on one of his serves. Can't be sure though, foggy stream made it hard to see the speed display from a distance

according to SAP twitter he did. They say he served 155 and 156 in a row but the 156 was a fault. Karlovic wtill owns the record for now

Canada’s Milos Raonic says that a misread MRI on his injured left knee forced him to pull out of his Davis Cup match against France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Sunday and that if it had been read correctly he would have played.

Frank Dancevic subbed in for Canada’s top player and lost to Tsonga to clinch the tie 3-1 for France.

"It was bad luck last week," Raonic told TENNIS.com in San Jose. “After we lost to doubles I went to have an echography [in Vancouver] and I was told I had four millimeter tear in the tendon and it was month long recovery. I was told that if I played on Sunday it could completely snap and I’d be out for eight to 12 months. So it was a no- brainer not to play. So I spoke to my doctor in Spain and I came here because I knew the services were really good at the Stanford Medical Clinic. I did an MRI and I was told it was just misplaced fluid instead of a tear and it was just showing tendonitis and I could play through, it won’t get any worse. It was little a disheartening because I was in the dark and I wish I could have played. If I knew I wasn’t taking a risk, I would have played Tsonga. I was sore, but I knew if I could take a pain killer, I could probably have played through the pain."
I am sure, Canadian captain is thrilled.

I don't think anyone cares how thrilled Martin Laurendeau is. He's a moron who has made more stupid decisions as captain of this team than anyone could dream of making.

It's disapointing that Milos could have played, but the only good thing that came out of it was Laurendeau looking like an idiot for playing him in doubles.

Counting down the days until Laurendeau is fired:)

A misread of a MRI? You've got to be kidding me. That Tsonga match would have been great.

I guess the important thing is he's all right.

milos looked ok here
if he feels good and stays kinda healthy he should take the title, but if he's not fully fit, there can be some motivated opponents to make that knee run

Hope he will crack that Ivo´s record, Milos is consistenly serving bombs, he is right now for sure having hardest 1st serve on the tour consistently, when hitting flat he is mostly in 215-225 even higher in KM/H. Ivo on other side his fastest serves in last year didn´t go much higher than 135mph, mostly 128-132mph 1st serves flat bombs, even last year in San Jose when was shoot out contest Milos was serving much much hardet than Ivo. So he should take record from him, btw if anyone will say SAn Jose has weird radar than what about that DC doubles:D there was speed gun ok:D
