Raonic - Murray 2012 Tokyo
 
Raonic - Murray, Tokyo SF
Perhaps the real derby of the tournament.

Raonic played great in some sequences with Tipsarevic, however Murray is riding a wave of great confidence.

Your pick? It's tied:

2012 US Open
NY, U.S.A. Hard R16 Murray, Andy
6-4, 6-4, 6-2

2012 Barcelona
Spain Clay Q Raonic, Milos
6-4, 7-6(3) Stats

Murray is just on fire and seems to be coasting against Wawrinka right now. After his last two months, it's hard to imagine him going down very easily or at all. I'm pulling for Raonic, but Murray in 3 tight ones.

No love for Stanislas? They're in a third set as I poast!

Tennisguy3000 10-04-2012 10:44 PM

Not a lot of coasting in the 3rd right now...

Murray in 2, no problems.

Murray outclassed him in New York, and although Raonic did have some fight, he's just not at Andy's level yet.

6-3 6-4

6-1 6-3 6-0 10-05-2012 02:18 AM

Let's not forget that Raonic lost to Nadal in Tokyo 2010 and Tokyo 2011 without breaking Nadal even once (in 2010, Nadal WON 6-4 6-4, and in 2011, Nadal WON 7-5 6-3). So clearly Raonic has trouble breaking opponents who serve well in Tokyo, so it should be a decisive straight sets one-break-per-set win for Murray.

No idea who this Nadal guy is, but he can't be very good if he's not in either of the 500 events currently playing.

Is he playing in Challengers? I don't really follow those.

Regardless, Murray has a very poor second serve, so Raonic will have chances to break him - problem for Raonic is that Murray is the best returner in the game, which neutralises his most potent weapon.

Murray is going to kill Raonic as he seems to be on a roll after his first slam win at the USO and he is a better player than Raonic. Murray in straights most likely.

tennis_pro 10-05-2012 03:14 AM

voted for Raonic to even up the votes a bit

Murray will win in 2 sets, 1 set with a double break, one with a single.

Marius_Hancu 10-05-2012 03:27 AM

11 PM EST tonight, it should be on streams, including Sky, which is very good:

[1] Andy Murray (GBR)

v


[6] Milos Raonic (CAN)

This is a right fate tempter, but I make Murray 20-2 in the semis of ATP500/250 events - it's pushing six years since he lost one (Feb 07).

Great stat, if true

Hawkeye7 10-05-2012 04:17 AM

It's true.

Zildite 10-05-2012 04:23 AM

The majority of those are 250s, this is not a 250. Moving on...I will try to watch for sure.

beast of mallorca 10-05-2012 04:32 AM

Murray to slaughter the lanky Canadian

Russeljones 10-05-2012 04:52 AM

Murray in straights: 7-6, 6-2.
