You can say whatever you want about Coric's forehand, but you can't deny that he joined the club of just 6 men who ever beat Raonic 6-1. And became the first tennis player who return and win more than half of Raonic's 225+ kmh serves.

Credit to Coric for staying in it mentally when he looked like a goner, but honestly this was just a kind of bizarre choke. Milos' level fell off a cliff after the first set and he never got it back. He missed a wide open FH on BP to start the 3rd and that was really it for him.

I'd expect Rublev to take the final easily.

Raonic after playing great first set fell apart like a house of cards. Looks like you can’t trust his game anymore these days to hold up for more than a few matches in a row.

After 1st set Coric raised his game and exposed Milos movement and weak BH like Djoko liked to do with Canadian.
Ended match with a FH winner. I wouldn't understimate Borna in the final, Roger knows about it.

Strange to see a Coric win. I thought Raonic had this, he must be utterly disappointed...

Standard for Raonic. He's either on top of the mountain or at the bottom of it. There is no safe base camp for him.

Bullshit result, after a great first set, just plays like dildo. Coric is just a disgusting pusher and has no business winning titles.

Didn't use to be the case in his prime, but it has been for the past few years. At least he seems healthy right now though. Should be able to have a few more runs like this over the next month if he is..

Quite a swing, didn't expect this after the first set. Mentally, Coric does hold firm.
Sadly, his tennis does not hold firm all the time though... or luckily, depends how you look at it.
