Clash of the up and comers. Who's gonna win this?
This will be tremendous. Great Berankis in three tough sets.
Raonic will take care of the headcase....needs Berankis to get frustrated!
In your wild dreams!
Thanks for setting up the poll. People do have the right to vote.
Very interesting matchup. As things stand right now, Berankis is world #73, Raonic #74, six points separating them -- so the the winner goes the higher spot, #2 in the Young Guns behind Nishikori.
I like Raonic in two tough sets, but it could go either way. I just don't think Berankis can return well enough.
Well good luck with your Berankis support... I am a bit giddy with a Canadien player doing pretty well! Getting to a Quarters of an ATP 250...is rare...sometimes Dancevic does the odd showing!
Berankis doesn't need luck, he has skill. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy for Raonic performance, and even happier for Canada on their successful extradition of talent from Chernogoria. Should be a very watchable match.
Woo. Go Berankis! : p Canada's weird.
Berankis is a midget. The power of Milos will prevail.
milos is more solid. it will take quite an effort from berankis to pull out the victory. raonic in 3
let's gp raonic
I think Milos has the greater number & range of weapons and the cooler head.
That said, we will see.
Milos will win in 2 sets.
Raonic to blaze his way past Berankis.
very interesting match between 2 promising players !
Depends if Berankis can get some returns into play with interest, which he usually does but after watching him lose a set to the one and only Donald Young after blowing numerous opportunities I'll just have to go with Raonic in 2.
I guess I'll have to be Maracas's lone supporter there then!
It's Barrakas. And you stop being p r i cky or else I'm sending Ken for you.
Berankis slays the giant !
Whoever wins, these 2 have a big future in tennis. I think Berankis is very similar to Nalbandian in terms of technique and ball striking. This week has been the first time I've properly watched him and I have been very impressed. Raonic has an unbelievable serve with good groundstrokes too! In terms of pure tennis ability I think Berankis wins hands down but that serve gets a lot of cheap points for Raonic and he has a massive forehand too so it could go either way but here's hoping for a good match... and a Berankis win!
Berankis has played pretty poorly this week. He can do much better. His return of serve is his best shot and it's looked pretty average this week.
Anyone know what time this starts?
No earlier than 1 pm PST.
I haven't been impressed with Berankis this week; his match against Young was sloppy. I haven't seen Raonic play yet but he seems to be on a roll. I think he'll win in straights.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks of this. Bravo good sir.
tons of energy and game
raonic games often go fast, but if berankis plays NOT like he did vs. the donald, this could be a loooooong one.
not a stretch, but i gotta pick raonic ftw
Any live streams? www.atdhe.net is gone.
here ya go ...... http://veetle.com/sapopen
Thanks a lot!
youre welcome ... nice quality ... gotta have the veetle player, but it sounds as if you already do!
What a ****ing ****ty stream.
Takes a while to connect but then it looks great. I hope they stream more tournaments.
Berankis returned a 142mph serve for a clean winner.
That's not too bad.
everybody's been pretty impressed with the quality of the veetle transmission, except when usage gets high for the evening matches ... then the HD is pretty much unusable due to pixels breaking up
other thing is that, for instance, morning/afternoon matches don't have any cameras on court, just have that one end view ... but they do have the court cams working for the singles matches after 7:00 p.m. local Cali time
how could you see it on such a bad stream? :twisted:
milos serving 4-3/30 love
Hi there, Lovie.
How's it going?
Hi, cutie pie! *euro kiss kiss*
dead in SDL on day #3 damn the bulge king!
other than that, lookin forward to delpo/rusty tonight...
I'm watching the match here. Disappointed that Ken Thomas is not covering this.
What's the difference between a euro kiss and a normal one?
I switched to High Q from HD, that's how I saw the return, btw.
Another game for Milos!
"Genetics determines the first set."
omg these announcers. one is stupider than the other. first he calls Phau "fou" then he says "it's in" when hawkeye is showing it "out" ... and then he says ....... these two gonna be playing each other for prolly the next 10 years. this is their first meeting, a kind of "you show me yours, and i'll show you mine" and raonic's is just a little bigger :shock:
then he amends, "well, pretty much bigger actually" :shock: :shock:
Milos is shorter than Del Potro and close in size to Soderling and Monfils. Do you think Del Potro won the US Open due to his size alone? This kid has skill, he’s not just a serve. You make him sound like he’s the next Ivo Karlovic. Skill won the first set
"I" didn't make him sound like anything.
Quite a display of commentatorship.
lol. 10 char.
Nah, they're cool.
This is somewhat a part of why I'm a fan, not gonna lie.
