Raonic, clearly the next guy to break through and win a slam.

    Yes mate. Possibly his worst ever performance in a rogues gallery of post AO nightmares. Monte Carlo it was. Frenchies booed him off court he was so bad - would probably have booed him myself had I been there.

    Raonic is Murray's boss? Hardly, it's not like Raonic is beating him in straight sets constantly

    I'd say playing and beating Murray in a tough match is rather more important for any resume than losing to Nishikori (will never win a Slam) after a real battle.

    I saw part of that final, Nishikori was reading Raonic's serve very well, but Nishikori can run as much as He wants, some people will just power through him, aka Querrey and top 4, wawrinka amongst others.

    I know, right? I'm getting hyperbole fatigue from the swings of GREATEST EVAR to THROW HIM OUT OF THE ATP.

    What issue do you have with people criticizing Raonic? You claim that you are regularly embarrassed that Tomic is a member of the ATP world tour. It seems that you are quite fond of hyberbole yourself. I mean it is not like an 18-19 year old tennis player has ever disappointed the tennis following masses before. I am sure a guy like Federer was always a classy gentlemen when he was a teenager on tour. :roll:

    Yes... I do not like his tennis, but he is young and so far he does not have many competitors of his age. When the top4 retire RAonic will have a clear path. Can't see any young genius around

    The unwarranted hype for this serving dork never stops on this site, sorry but he will never win a major.

    To reliant on the big serve. He lost 6-0 in the third set to Nishikori which tells me he has a ways to go. Might become an Isner once people figure it out. Needs to work on other parts of the game.

    I hope he gets better. He reminds me of Boris back in the day. But its a different time now. People return and move much better.

    I see Raonic reaching 8th or higher of at least a week or 2 in his career.

    Yes I dont see him winning slams but he will reach at least GS 1 semifinal in his career. He's that unbelievably friggin good! He could beat a 5.0 player 6-0 6-0!
