BPs: 6-1 Raonic
He works hard! I keep telling you guys.
I'm sure he has been practicing.
Raonic playing very well today looks like
Love when Milos shows up and plays this sort of tennis against the big guys, win or lose. Shuts the haters up, if only momentarily.
Will win very Wimbledon?
Will be very surprised if Murray wins this match the way both of them are playing.
See, that's the part I don't even understand. Why would he even have haters?
He's a nice guy, he works hard, he already has championships.
Are people really that bored?
LOL. Gentlemen, start your threads ...
Ask a certain Shakespearean-named poster. Beats me.
People seem to have a thing against having a great serve. Apparently it's "boring" and he isn't a "real tennis player". Except that having a great serve is no different than having a great forehand - one go-to weapon.
I can also kind of understand people rebelling against the hype - it's how I feel about Justin Bieber. :twisted:
Brit commentators: "Raonic has done such a good job at being the aggressor"
I thought he was a lock :twisted:
He's tall and doofy and needs a haircut is the reason I don't like him.
Doesn't seem like Raonic is tightening up at all. Good composure so far.
Now I know you;'re just trolling us. Either that or you are just simply a horrible judgemental person. Do you hate everyone who happens to have the "tall" genes? Or everyone who inherits a certain hairstyle from their parents?
Are you short? :shock:
Also, if you are going to snark on Milos' hair I hope you were not a Roger fan circa US Open 2008. The Maestro played some very nice tennis but he needed a haircut so bad he looked like the dog Beethoven from that terrible movie.
He's assured himself at least a tiebreak.
He's assured himself at least a tiebreak.
AND HERE WE GO...
If Milos doesn't get it done here, then I'm fairly certain Murrya will run away with it
Against Tipsarevic and now against Murray, his last 2 tiebreakers his first serve has been money.
This matchup must be every haters wet dream, ball machine vs pong.
Murray 3 points away from taking this to a 3rd set...
Murray an error away from losing or a Raonic crushing forehand.
Now 2 points away from losing...
Salsa! That serve was like salsa!
Set point Muzzy Mawr
My god what a save by Murray there.
Pretty quality tennis from Murray at the end there. We have a match!
good set final from Murray
Extremely impressed by the play of Raonic tonight, but as I've said in the past we only see it every once in awhile. The consistency still isn't there.
Raonic should have just hit a backhand. Needs to trust it in those big moments to take it to the next level. Playing a good match though. He will probably make top 10 next year
Now there's a stat, Murray out-acing Raonic
1 am here and I am tirrreddd...but I have to stay up.
Same here. I'm exhausted. I need Murray, Tsonga, Azarenka and Sharapova to complete my parlay though.
2 volleys, and R wins 1st game, 3rd set
Yes Andy! Game, set match.
We certainly do.
This reminds me of how he woke up halfway through the US Open final.
Interesting quirk in his psychology ...
Come on, Milos! Don't you fold now! MAndy won the last time!
I must say I'm a little disgusted at Andy Murray's antics. The guy acts like such a brat out on court. It's really disrespectful to the opponent, I guess winning the Us Open didn't teach him any manners :/
Wow Murray chokes.
Too soon, junior!
Match isn't over yet. Worth staying up for, haha.
great comeback from Raonic
he needs more 1st serves though
Murray starts swearing and throwing tantrums every single time he misses a shot.....even when his opponent hits a winner/ace.
Such an unlikable person.
With that said, he totally threw away the break. Has the chance to blast a winner.....he chooses to end the point with a dropper.
Indeed. Certainly didn't expect the worst returner in the game to break back.
i'll tell you what's his problem:
he cannot hide the fact that he thinks he's above all other players (the fact itself might be true or not),
BUT-he acts like he has the right to behave as he does (together with his body language), and that's the thing that just make him look unattractive. Federer might be arrogant but he has class behavior. if fed would have behaved like Murray i'm less people would have liked him.
*Raonic blasts ace, umpire calls score, 10 seconds go by....then Murray decides to challenge*
*Murray hits serve, Raonic hits it long and immediately challenges, Murray utters "this is bulls**t"*
Absolutely loathsome behavior by this guy.
another proof of his elitism behavior.
Merciful goodness, it is 100% mental for the kid, I swear.
C'mon folks, who is going to say that they aren't finding this to be an compelling and intriguing match? Kudos to both players for giving the fans some entertainment value. That's what it's all about.
I think it's great. They're pretty evenly matched.
if Raonic will show that his mental side is improving in these last games, that's an excellent sign, even if he loses.
Separate names with a comma.
