Is Raonic out of his mind or he just expect too much from himself?

    I think for tall players, they often give the impression they lumber around, having no speed at all. In reality, many move as good as smaller guys. Just a trick our own eyes play us, or the camera, I don't know. I remember this ice hockey player Mario Lemieux, often talked as the heir of Wayne Gretzky. Most fans think of him as slow, but the players themselves admitted they got fooled many times when Mario just zoomed by them with a lightning first step. Perhaps Raonic is not so slow as many tend to think.

    Don't take me wrong. I never argue Raonic doesn't have to improve his mobility. He does. But I just want to keep things in perspective as regard to some the tall players, in tennis or in any sport. For some of them, their speed is very deceiving. Camera, or sitting on the higher stand just don't do them justice.
