Will the Balkan bruiser, take out the watered down Canadian Serb ? Will the Canadian serve his way to his first win ?

Thoughts please.

Raonic has never beaten Djokovic and at times he was humiliated.

Normally Djokovic in 2 sets is what should happen.

However this Djokovic has looked a tad physically slower, mentally drained and less consistent from the ground not to mention his weak 2nd serve that are easy for pros to pounce.

I will say Djokovic in 3 sets but I wouldn't be surprised if Raonic scores his first win vs Djokovic today.

Raonic won't win. His best chance of all the matches to get a win over Djokovic but I think the chances of him even winning a set are small. Two of my least favourite players playing in this one. Doubt I'll be watching this one.

Man Raonic is provisionally 3rd in the World....with due respect to him and his fans, since Wimbledon he hasn't done much.

Critical match for Thiem. Raonic looked sharp at the end of Bercy and surprisingly good against Monfils given his mild quad tear. Thiem needs a tired and wounded Raonic to come limping out of this match as I doubt he can beat in form Raonic on this surface.:p

Unfortunately for you @Meles if Raonic beats Djokovic, there's a strong possibility that Thiem will not qualify for the next round unless Thiem pummels Raonic to the ground in their 3rd final matchup.

If Djokovic beats Raonic, it's pretty much whoever wins between Thiem and Raonic will advance.

Raonic trying the inside in forehand, all it does is make himself run to his deuce corner. Good thinking Milos, good thinking
