    lol what else can they do?

    Anyways I think the match ends tomorrow so Rafa will play at Halle regardless. But if Milos can somehow find a way to beat federer then I'll like his chances.

    Hope Federer withdraws. He looks like he needs some rest and Raonic could use more practice on grass.

    I hate how they have like 2 weeks before Wimbledon right after the French. Gives the players no time to adapt on grass.

    novak didn't play any serious tuneup events (other than a couple of exhibition matches) before wimbledon and it turned out okay for him

    I think rest will suit guys like murray and del potro more than playing warmup tournaments

    The main guys don't need tuneup. But some guys in the 7-30 range could use it considering the ball is so much faster.

    Good. I wanted him to join the other tournament. Would have been easier for him with the best player being Murray.

    these tournaments things are so complex. you have to enter these tournaments well in advance or you risk not getting in unless you get a wild card. so he probably didnt know what the field was going to be like.

    some top players even have contracts with the tournaments. like i thing federer signed on to play in halle for the next few years.

    Yea, I know it's complicated.

    It would have been cooler though if he was in the other tournament. I guess he signed up in advance with this tournament because he played in there last year.

    Milos Raonic still at #23 because of his Wimbledon performance.

    after watching him play i realize he is just awkward in his movement. i dont think he will ever be a decent enough mover.

    I think he might squeak into the top 10 but he will never sniff a slam. I will still be cheering for him.

    In the 2011 Australian when he first made a run, John McEnroe and like 2 more people thought he was going to be the next best player under 21.

    I think he'll be a top 10 player with being a lot more consistent than Isner. But yea, he really needs no work on those ground strokes. He's only 21 and has at least 3-5 more years before he probably reaches his prime.

    Ya your probably right. Imo he just has a long ways to go before he reaches that level.

    In 5 years from now, Milos will be in his prime while players like Federer, Nadal, Murray and Djokovic are all in their 30's. I think Del Potro will have a couple of runs at #1 since he's fairly young and pretty good. I'm not that knowledgeable of young prospects that'll enter the tour at the moment but there should be enough room for Milos to make some noise when that time comes.
