Raonic next week
He didn't get in the Q in Shanghai (too late at #150 ...), so he plays this challenger:
BTW, he played very well with Nadal, I was impressed.
Hits a quite flat ball from both sides (Nadal didn't like it), very effective volleys. His 2HBH is more effective in cross than DTL for the time being.
Not too much straight S-V (perhaps less confident on his first step into the court), but a lot of 1-2s.
He had 3-4 BP against Nadal, didn't materialize.
Very heavy serving, when accurate was deadly against Nadal (225Km/h).
The only prob: movement to his left, to be expected being this tall
Needs lots of work there, on the motion.
