  1. - - MONACO 6-7 6-3 6-7 6-3 6-4 - Monaco is serving for the match and he does so with a fine delivery that Raonic can't return. He sinks to his knees and he faces Nadal next. Ow. Men's draw

  2. - - MONACO 6-7 6-3 6-7 6-3 4-2 - BREAK! Monaco has gone a break up in the fifth, and he has followed with a hold. Can he close it out?

  3. - - MONACO 6-7 6-3 6-7 6-3 - SET! Monaco protects that lead from the break to 3-1 and he takes the fourth set, meaning we have a fifth. All the way baby!

  4. - - MONACO 6-7 6-3 6-7 3-1 - BREAK! This one had a sense of going the distance and it looks to be thus as Monaco breaks early in the fourth set.

  5. - - MONACO 6-7 6-3 6-7(5) - SET! Raonic takes the third set and his second 7-5 on a tiebreak. Monaco had battled back from 1-4 down to 5-5 but he goes long, then fails to return serve and the Canadian is ahead.

  6. - - MONACO 6-7 6-3 6-6 (1-4) - The third set goes to a tiebreak which Raonic initially takes charge of with a mini-break.

  7. - - MONACO 6-7 6-3 - SET! After dropping the first set on a TB the Argentine takes the second fairly comfortably with what was an early break.

  8. - - MONACO 6-7(5) - SET! 19th seed Raonic takes the first set 7-5 in a tie-break with the 13th seed.

  9. - - Two of the mid-seeds are in action now as Argentine Juan Monaco (13) faces Milos Raonic (19) of Canada. Occasional updates from here.

  1. I think why a lot of people are cheering for Raonic is­ because he has a serve that we haven't seen in the­ game for a long time. Reminds me of Goran­ Ivanisovic.

  2. Well done to Juan!!

  3. Congrats to Juan for the big win. He was the higher­ seed so it was expected. He broke Milos 3 times and­ was never broken himself.

  4. Milos isn´t exactly fried, but I´d prefer to watch Rafa­ vs Juan, it´ll be really exciting! As well as Rafa and­ David, I enjoy watching players like Monaco, Fognini,­ Nalbandian or Montañes, who are born fighters!

  5. Milos is done. He's fried. Nothing left.

    From Great Eddie, on Sat 2 Jun 19:13
  6. C mon Milos, Rafa is waiting for you!!!!

  7. looking good for Monaco. Raonic is tiring. It's­ hard to move such a big body around for this long.

    From Great Eddie, on Sat 2 Jun 19:10
  8. And Juan also had the bad luck of losing both­ tiebreaks. I hope he can at least win this set and­ force a decider.

  9. Monaco had a chance in the 3rd set but messed up on his­ serve and that cost him the set. Don't count Juan­ out just yet. Whoever wins this match will give Nadal a­ good challenge.

    From Great Eddie, on Sat 2 Jun 17:55
  10. He was born outside of Canada but owes his life­ training to Canada

    From Matt, on Sat 2 Jun 17:21
  11. Too bad both Monaco and Raonic are in Nadal´s side of­ the draw! Otherwise they could have both easily­ reached the quarters!

    From sarah37729, on Sat 2 Jun 17:08
  12. Great Eddie, I understand that. Raonic isn't the­ best mover on the court, he still moves pretty well FOR­ THE BIG GUY. His game isn't just about serving­ good, even though that is his biggest strength. He has­ much more potential than Karlovic. Yes, Raonic may be­ compared to Del Potro, even though I'd give Del­ Potro more props for the time being. But I definitely­ can't say Monaco has overall advantage over Raonic,­ Canadian's form is pretty good and Monaco is pretty­ inconsistent.

    From Jacob Sabonis, on Sat 2 Jun 17:06
  13. Monaco is developing into quite a player. He needs a­ breakthrough at a major. Probably not at the French­ Open. Too bad he's in Nadal's side of the draw.

    From Great Eddie, on Sat 2 Jun 16:54
  14. Vamos Juan!! This is clay, so I hope Juan gets to the­ last 16 and maybe Milos can make his breakthrough at­ Wimbledon.

    From sarah37729, on Sat 2 Jun 16:47
  15. No idea... maybe he's referring to some comment­ made by a commentator?

    From espspa2063, on Sat 2 Jun 16:45
  16. Jacob, Just calling it like it is. He is just a big­ guy that has the big serve. His game is nothing likes­ Roger's, Rafa's or Nole's. Plain and­ simple. It's a fact that BIG GUYS just can't­ move around the court too well. Same goes for Delpo,­ Isner, Karlovic, etc. If you can't see that then I­ don't know what to tell you.

    From Great Eddie, on Sat 2 Jun 16:45
  17. Roanic lives in Canada but was not born there. He is­ from the area of Croatia.

    From Great Eddie, on Sat 2 Jun 16:42
  18. Great Eddie, why do you downgrade Raonic like this. Are­ you afraid to pair Rafa and him together ? Raonic is a­ better player. Yes, mostly because of his powerful­ serve, but powerful serve is one of "good­ game" elements, isn't it ? And he still moves­ pretty well up the court. By the way, comment no. 2 was­ a reaction to 'live commentary' statement about­ Raonic being from Croatia.

    From Jacob Sabonis, on Sat 2 Jun 16:41
  19. What the heck does post #2 have to do with anything?

    From Great Eddie, on Sat 2 Jun 16:38
  20. Vamos Juan. You can wear this big guy down. He­ can't run too much. He's more of a powerful­ server. Your game is much better.
