    scheduled to start after 4 PM, and it's now 4:06 PM here on the left coast! :p

    yes it's just the QF, but heck it's the defending champion! :D

    that's my opinion, too ...... especially if milos has a niggle ... kevin's recently married and needs to start adding to the income, not likely to go willing into that good night

    The way the commentator butchers Raonic's name is disgusting.

    Hmm, seems like it could easily go either way. I'm going to say Raonic wins though.

    woof! :shock:
    it's already 3 all ...
    rotten buffering streams! :mad:

    wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that this isnt technically a part of the evening program? I'm getting about five words in a row from the com ... then buffer ... etc.

    guess i'll just listen in, not try to watch, putter around ... and hope for better quality eventually ...

    So boring.

    Anybody that wants the game to go back to the good old days of the big servers should be forced to sit and watch this match.

    Obviously not that fast....but a bit more faster like from 05 US Open. The speed promoted aggressive baseline tennis and some volleying.

    Yes these big boring serving tennis will still happen but not to the extent of the 90's.

    A tad faster can't hurt....

    lol .. don't think i've ever heard one person butcher a name so many ways within such a short time! :lol:

    portuguese? how crazy is that? maybe he's talking about gilles muller?
    BUT wait! he's Luxembergian

    either that or Frederico Gil :twisted: ... who actually is portuguese, but is nowhere near San Jose this week!

    small private venue ... prolly can't afford it

    seems they might have had it previoiusly, but not this year I guess

    especially with those fast serves and groundstrokes it would really come in handy

    I'd rather have variety on the tour than monotonous baseline rallies at every single tournament.

    Hopefully Raonic wins this here, I don't know if I could sit through another set of this but I know I'd never be able to tear myself away either...

    I guess they try to get someone similar to Ken Thomas but failed.

    Harrison was playing excellent tennis last time they met. Raonic on the other hand came off from that San Jose-Memphis-Davis Cup run and seemed a notch below his level. Should be a good one

    Raonic very cool and controlled, a bit too much for my taste ... but this was easier than expected in the end, and a win is a win

    Milos is looking very composed and efficient.

    Like Top-10 composed and efficient.

    Should be a very interesting weekend -- I think he's got a great shot at repeating.
