This is the second time these two will meet. Raonic won the first encounter in 2012.
Sadly, I think the servebot will win this one. :sad:

Could go either way. Hopefully Raonic pulls it off.

Karlbot going to give raonic a taste of his own medicine. Milos doesn't have the game to deal with him.

As for the match, unless Raonic is still injured, he should win this match. Obviously nobody likes to play Karlovic, but it's not a bad matchup for him really.

I mean, it's very unlikely for Karlovic to break him and usually Raonic is a better TB player. Also, he's playing at home.

Raonic 7-6 7-6.

Good points, but I have a feeling Raonic will be too rusty still.

I think the key for both players winning this match is to serve well.

7-6(25) 6-7(29) 7-6 (643)

Or something like that.
Karlovic sucks in TBs even so against 'normal' servers. I think Raonic has the edge there. But 3 TB sets, that could very well happen, like his match with Isner in Miami.

Depends on how Raonic is with his foot. He could still be a bit rusty, lacking match play, and having very limited match play since Monte Carlo.

Likely an all tie-break set affair here.

It will be interesting. Both have huge serves but Raonic is a baseline player while Karlovic comes to the net. A different prospect for Milos to return.
