    Yes he is awesome!!! But He needs to improve his game to challenge the big boys!! Example improve his mobility (I know he's big but..) Also he needs to improve his offensive game! ie his winners. I watched the watch yesterday (the semi's) and he was basically playing defense ala Caroline Wozniacki, mind you not to that extent, but the same idea. Keep in mind he's only 21..so he has lots of time to do this!

    He has the tools and at the very least, he'll end up being the best player ever to represent this country(despite his serbian parents)... points-wise it'll be tough for him to snag a significant victory ala masters series.. with all the 'big-boys' and the lesser ones, your ferrer, berdych's, etc... but I think he'll be a top 10 by the end of 2014

    Barring injuries Raonic will be in the top 10 by the end of the year. If he wins tonight he will be in the top 20. He doesnt have very many points to defend the rest of the way. The dude is playing amazing tennis (11-1). He should have beat hewitt at aussie open but it was his first time on big stage.

    He could have been the top 10 last year but he got injured. also early in the year he couldnt get into the big tournaments because of his rankings. then when he did get his ranking up, he got injured and couldnt play.

    I say the goal for him should be to get into top 16 before wimbledon. that way he doesnt have to play the big players before the 4th round.

    Melzer doesn't have a chance today!

    well i was wrong, the match is over and melzer won in straights.

    i am still saying Raonic will be in the top 10 before the end of the year.

    what's worse? It was a 9-toe'd Melzer

    Melzer helped Austria advance past Russia in the first round of the Davis Cup two weeks ago and came to Memphis early. He broke his toe when he got caught in a hotel bedspread Feb. 16. Melzer has been icing the toe after each match, and he said the injury only bothers him now when he sprints and stops.

    “But the good thing is most of my sliding I do on hard court I do with my left foot so it doesn’t … affect my game,” Melzer said.

    Ouch!! Today Milos.. did not like he was in the match at all!!! He seems to get "non interested" in certain parts of a game.

    he needs more of a fighter mentality. I didnt see todays match but i saw the sf. when is he up a break, he would just throw away return games.

    Awesome.

    He's ranked 24 now.

    Though he could have been 18 had he won.
