Shame he will surrender it without a fight. I always felt he had good chances against Berdych and Murray had he been full fit. Which is really a shame..

Congrats Milos!

It'll only be for a week though as he's not in Rome this week to have surgery on his foot.

But yes Raonic is ranked 4th!

Muglos being ranked 4th is a monumental embarrassment for the sport. Fortunately he will only be there for a week. Even without the injury his stay would have been short lived as he is only 9th in the race.

Had he been full fit he would of had a better chance against Berdych and Murray. His 9th in the rank is misleading. Nishikori and Ferrer have over 1000 points from small tournaments.

How did that happen?
This is what u call overachivement compared to some of his pier at least it's clear he worked hard to improve his strengths and reduce his weakness u can only respect that.
He's not playing Rome so the draws won't be fucked for too long

Do you know what kind of a surgery that is?

When Nishikori had a foot surgery after Washington last year, it got healed barely in time for USO even though it was only a minor surgery. Only a week or so before USO, his training consisted of working out for his upper body, and sitting in a chair and return shots from there. He was THIS close to skipping USO, but Michael Chang talked him into giving it a try.

Maybe it was tricky for him because it was the sole of the foot in his case, but I really hope Milos will be able to come back as soon as possible (and given how well Nishikori did in USO... :)).

Not sure of the nature of the surgery. But allt her reports state that he will be immobile for a couple of days, and then a week-to week and half recovery. The French Open is very much in doubt for Raonic.

It's pretty bad for the sport indeed, but nothing will ever surpass Roddick being world number #1.

This is really stupid. Rafa makes the final, and he's down to seventh? Milos at number four is ridiculous.

People really need to better understand the rankings. The same thing happened in 2013 when Nadal beat Ferrer in the FO Finals, but Ferrer passed Nadal in the rankings.

It's a 52-week rotating ranking system. Nadal won the event last year so anything other than a win and he was losing points. He lost 400 ranking points. Last year Raonic lost in the 3rd round to Nishikori, this year he made it one round further so he gained 90 points. Raonic was only 320 points behind Nadal coming into the event. Simple math.

Raonic will also have 360 points coming off this week as he's unable to defend his Rome SF points from last year, so he'll be back to at least 6th unless Nadal or Ferrer win the title, in which case he'll move lower.

Nadal gained only 370 points post RG, he has a lot of room to move up.

Pinched nerve apparently. Kei had a swelling cyst on one of his toes which was treated. Mills could be bigger issue as anything to do with nerves could result in changes in sensation. I expect he'll try lightly asits important he looks after it for the long-term. I think kei was worried about lack of training but eased into the tournament.
