Just ask

Yeah, Raonic defeated Knee-derer in 2016, but that Knee-derer would have destroyed any version of BRTN.

I just will never in a million years ever pick Milos the Mild to win a match against Djokovic. He is a pigeon on the level of Ferrer to Federer and Gasquet to Nadal. Djokovic owns him. Even 2021 Djokovic.

As for their levels, I think probably around equal but Raonic had less weaknesses and was definitely a better server on big points. But negligible differences, Raonic wasn’t great.

that was a legit win by Raonic...just because Fed slipped a little bit in the 5th set doesn't mean he lost the match because of that. He moved just fine after the slip

Both did ok in the final, Raonic was broken only one time in the match and Berr did win the first set after being down 2-5 with setpoint.
Somewhat narrative is shifted that they both are worst which is wrong, maybe they don't won much in career but in those Wimbledon they did play good.
It is Baggy all over again, Baggy didn't acheive much outside AO 2006 but doesn't mean Baggy run was weak in AO 06

Raonic was also good in AO 2016, was leading 2-1 in semi, and played better in yec 2016, specially in semi.
So Raonic run didn't come out of blue and if I am not wrong he made IW or Miami final also that year
