Breaks Ferrer at start, let's see
Quite solid, Milos.
R definitely lost the control of himself after 4 2 ...
First serving down the train
Focus on that ball! Move your legs!
Break game again. Will he listen to your advice? LOL
It's sometimes frustrating to watch Raonic. If he could minimize the errors on his forehand side, he'd be nearly unbeatable. He's so very very good much of the time and then he clubs the ball into the net or long. Still, he's looking not bad in this match, giving Ferrer a run for his money.
Will be interesting when Ronic plays Pete in the exo in Toronto November...Mr calm v. Mr Calm.
They'll either put everyone to sleep with their calmness and lack of excitement or they'll have everyone oohing and aahing over the speed of their serves. Don't imagine there will be too many baseline exchanges to get wooped up over.
Raonic ...it's all between the ears says the commentator
He played very well for the stage where he is at in his recovery.
What the heck, he was competitive with Ferrer.
It's good to see now things to fix are more on the mental side.
Yes, especially conaidering that Ferrer is the 5th best player in the world.
Yes, playing Nadal and Ferrer in a row surely brings your juices up much quicker.
I think it's more an issue of his backhand side being that much weaker. He runs around a lot of backhands even when the opportunity really isn't there. Also leads to pressing on that forehand side to end points quicker.
Good to play a lot now.
"It's a good thing in general to know I had the chances," said Raonic, adding his European playing schedule will be full for the remaining four weeks of the ATP season.
well, he does flatten his FH too frequently, but then, only Fed knows when to play high topspin FH down the line to just stay in points and mess up the opponent through change of pace
January-March already seems so long ago...I, like a lot of us, was fully on the bandwagon because his upside is limitless. I'm willing to be patient with the backsteps he's taken in the last six months. I'm sure he'll climb way past where he was headed after Melbourne/San Jose/Memphis!
He will be playing:
He's barely been back. He got a couple of matches in against very good opponents. He's doing fine as far as I'm concerned. Just give him some time. He just needs more matches under his belt.
Oh, I don't care if he wins or loses for 2-3 months ...
Just needs to put his gearbox and compass in order
but he's already up to it
Meelosh will be up against Baghdatis in the first round in Stockholm!
Very good practice for running around and improving the motion over the court.
Then, Petzschner/Kubot, Chela/Dimitrov.
All tough. Lost to P in Halle, I think.
But not so tough, still, none of them top 20.
Thus, good draw. Baggy's 55 now, always dangerous, of course.
Based on what I saw in Shanghai and the match with Ferrer (in which he lost from being 2-0 in both sets, on weak mental towards the end, plus Ferrer), I'm going out on a limb and say Milos gets to the SF. Let's see
Of course, he could lose to any of them. Hope not.
He will be playing
Valencia - Spanish coach, eh?
If he loses early in Stockholm he might ask for a WC in Vienna, who knows. Knock on wood.
It seems that based on his success in Stockholm,
Milos Raonic has given up on Valencia.
I don't find him in the list there anymore:
The progression continues...smart, IMO, to not overplay at this point. A nice result in Bercy will send him off into offseason on a positive and gain a seed @AO'12. A little work on the soft spots could reap an exciting '12 campaign.
dude's a beast!
let's wait to see the Valencia draw
He sounds Ukrainian not Canadian.
Playing Benneteau, Roddick, Murray in Paris
8AM EST Raonic Benneteau
We Ukrainian/Canadians woud be glad to have him, but he was born in Montenegro and is Canadian.
Kind of off topic but the amount of quality pro players that come from the former Yugoslavian background is astonishing. Serbia and Croatia are powerhouses then you have all the immigrants to other countries (Nestor, Dancevic, Raonic to name a few). I'm kind of rambling but you get my point.
Anyway, hope Raonic beats Roddick in Paris.
Because of hardship the Eastern Europeans have develpoed a strong work ethic and a determination to succeed. Just wait until they get used to the easy life of the lands of opportunity lf they chose or have to migrate to to see whether they will settle into lethargy.
For streaming I like fromsport.com
Milos takes first set off Julien B in a breaker.
20 aces for Raonic and he hasn't yet won:-[
I think he willl have to up the number until his return of serve improves.
v, Benneteau MR says ...I had my chances, etc. He had chances and took them.
Benneteau: Raoonic depends on his serve.... his return of serve is not great
And he is not losing because of his hip injury.
He should be able to give a good show v. Sampras when they play the exo in Toronto Nov. 17.
That willl be fun with the new relired, relaxed and quite funny Pete. Anyone here going??
