    What a tactics fail running around that backhand at 6-6 and then hitting a non-descript FH to the middle of the court.

    ASKING Raonic to hit a winner.

    Lol Roddick has a slam title and many runner up slam performances and these guys are bagging on him in order to lift Raonic to crazy heights.

    Typical verdasco that set sums him up.
    Raonic is twice the player roddick ever was how dare they compare the two!

    That really was some silly stuff by Nando at the end, though. Classic Verdasco, but still quite silly.

    He's the real deal.... not just 'cause he won a set.... this is the first time I've seen Roanic play and he has everything... especially the mental aspect.

    Just because these commentators are trash doesn't mean you guys have to start cracking Milos.

    These guys' definition of "truly elite" is like 10 GS titles.

    LOL! I'm a Roddick fan, but when it comes to Canadian content

    Canadian content > Roddick

    I seriously do hope that Raonic can learn from this and continue to develop his game.

    In terms of Roddick, I just wish that he played the way he did in 2003 :(

    Another two things that Sampras was known for - slumped body language and different shorts for the times. :shock:

    That name ain't very marketable either. At first I thought that was Borat's brother's name. Of course, this being a serious web-site with thousands of fact checkers ready to call me out for any mistake, I checked the ultimate authority of our times - YouTube. Borat's brother is Bilo, who has a son named Boltok.

    Still, he might consider something more suitable to Madison Avenue, say Mark. Or Maria. Tiger is available now as well.

    "I guess it's all Canadian to him"

    What the ...

    Canadian is a nationality, not a language. Just shut up, sir.

    Yeah, Roddick in 2003 was playing incredible tennis. I dont see why they are bagging on him. Roddick at the same age as Raonic was in the top 10... got to the AO SF, Wim SF, and won Montreal, Cincy, and USO back to back.
