Raonic wins, well deserved I think, like it or not his style, he kicked ass today.

Fed can relax now and get ready for WTF.

I'd say they end right there. He'll need a very strong performance at the O2 (possibly winning it) and a bit of a flop by Djokovic who could yet add to his points in Paris.

I'd say he can still get it, (probably won't). Any draw without Nadal in it is a winnable one for Roger, and if I'm not mistaken, Little Stefan and Jelena won't be at London, so there's every chance Djokovic gets distracted. Not looking it, I admit

Nole if he wins Paris and wins 1 match in WTF he seals YE No.1 if he bows out today, all Fed has to do is win the WTF and he gets World No.1 status by the end of it.

So all left to Muzza's hands, can Muzza beat Nole today? I certainly do feel he will triumph in Paris.

Go Muzza Go.

I could tell during the first set he was not moving like he was against Federer in the semi, and then midway through the second set it started to dramatically deteriorate and his average serve was well below 100mph for the rest of the match, and he was really struggling.
Wawrinka deserved the win though no doubt, he was the better player on the day clearly; and all in all I see it as a pretty impressive Grand Slam victory considering he had to face an All Time Great in Djokovic in the quarter finals.  

I can see Rafa fans find it extremely difficult to overcome injury excuses for his losses.

Stan deserved to win the tournament and was clearly the better player of all including Rafa in that given tournament and rightfully won. Please do not bring the Rafa injury excuse its not sportsman like.

I just want to see Andy on the front foot, playing well and being positive, and if he is to lose at least make Djokovic earn it. He hasn't done that the last couple of times.

I predict Novak in 3, but as long as Andy pushes him to his best (or near to) I'll be happy.

Youre both in agreement, however a person does have the right to bring up a potential injury in discussion, his back did seem to be a hamper, reasons, and excuses are different things. Also keep it classy gents, dont assume things of people in a certain camp

It's tight, but Novak's first serve percentage is much higher. Normally with these two, whoever serves better wins. So Novak has the edge for me.

Murray didn't even try to challenge! He just looked at it and held his hand out as if to say 'where was the call?'... I'm amazed Carlos did it.

Good win for Raonic..I managed to catch 5 minutes of the match and it showed the tournaments Raonic won, mostly San Joses and a Washington, and I think a couple of Asian ones Chennai/Bangkok. He has never won any tournament that big 4 players normally enter. If he could win this tournament it would be a big step forward. He is on good form, and the surface seems to help with getting aces.

ach, Murray chooses the worst time to throw in a few loose FHs, and Djokovic takes the set.

Murray not doing much wrong, in general being the aggressor which is good, but first serve percentage not really high enough, and the return game not as sharp as it could be.

Quality of the forehands and the backhands have generally been quite close. But 49% first serve when Novak is at over 70% isn't going to get it done. Andy also hasn't been that effective on the return. Hasn't really gone for it.

Novak edged it, so about the right score.

Yeah if youre gonna attack on something like this, youve gotta have the volleying ability to come in on your good shots. Saying that Fed got smoked coming in on this surface against Raonic too. Its a tough one, anyone taking out Novak on this gets massive kudos

Sorry love I don't have time for your advertised thread, you seemed to be a good marketer of your thread Very Happy .

I am more interested in match commentary kind of threads.

I had a small meeting for 40 minutes and if I am right the meeting took place after Nole won the 1st set and now I am back the score line is just 3-2 for Nole, how come this slow, I for once thought at the least 2nd set would have got over. furious

I don't think so Ferrer can overcome this Kei, kei looks a supreme threat for the tournament and it could again be battle of youngsters in the final with kei and Raonic in the finals competing for the title.

Roanic will make the finals is my prediction again. Very Happy

I saw the first set only but even if Murray won it he was never going to win. Djokovic, although pretty ordinary, just had more legs on the day. What might worry Djokovic fans is that this looks like his first tournament back from a break. Normally, he looks seamless.
