Second time this year Milos beat two top 10 players back to back.
Could it be a similar dynamic to Berdych/Murray down the road :?:
Funny you should say that. After failing to convert his match point against Querrey in Los Angeles, Murray then went on to beat Nadal and Federer back to back to win the Toronto Masters a couple of weeks later!
Raonic joins Federer and Djokovic as the only players that have beaten Murray twice this year!
Smart of Murray to lose to Milos on purpose in order to rest for the Shanghai/Paris/London treble.
Just so we all remember who voted for what ;-)

I admit, I underestimated the lanky Canadian.
Say what you like about Murray (and I agree his on court demeanour was terrible today) but I must say his fans are classy - good sports and gracious in defeat. I'm a long-suffering Murray fan myself, but was happy for Raonic at the end. He deserved this one.
so... 2 straight wins after saving match points, both against top 10 players ?
nice result for milos !
I've not seen this yet, but it sounds as if Raonic played another good match and playing in a more rounded manner that can keep him climbing the rankings.
Not wanting to take anything away from Raonic, as he clearly earned his win, but is it true that Murray wasn't sitting down during the change-overs towards the end of the match? I was told he was looking quite stiff, but hopefully it's just niggles that can be managed for Shanghai. You expect the players to be tired at this time of year, but there are enough with withdrawals already, so I'd like those who do turn up to be relatively free from injury.
Just finished watching the match. Raonic played very, very well. There's no reason with that serve why he should not be winning Grand Slams in the future, it's absolutely enormous. The rest of his game held up perfectly fine to Murray's too, and I didn't ever think his volleys were as good as they were.
Karlovic got top wins every now and then (Hewitt, Federer, etc.) so not surprising. If he's to maximise his potential, he needs to get a single QF at Wimbledon and start breaking some ace records.
The rest of Karlovic's game is no where near as good as Raonic's.
Why do you keep saying Karlovic? The kid is only 6'5"....He is an inch and a half taller than Murray, same height as Berdych, shorter than Delpo.
If you watched anything at all last night, you would have seen that he won the fair share of baseline rallies.
Why do you even post? Do you really love to spend your time and life just trying to get other people going? Pretty sad.
Third set highlights...HD
Raonic actually turned up and brought it!
Good lad. 8)
Good win for Raonic,but Andy looked out of sorts from the get go.
So I take it the Raonic hype is justifiable for the moment, no?
Fun match, fun rallies, slightly gutted for Murray since he was a break up in that 3rd set but I can live with this.
Hey Hoodman, I thought you left the Murray bandwagon and got back to
But Fed isn't playing at the moment. :wink:
Seems like it was pretty surprising to you...
Shhh don't tell Batz, I'll never hear the end if it!
This does have something to do with it, I confess
Hehe... I have a couple of bandwagons too... Fed & Raonic being two of them ;-) Thanks for the highlights of the third, good stuff
Amazing. I'm not the same person I was when I voted against Milos
