Raonic leads the H2H vs Andy

Thats because Andy has a problem dealing with Milos's hair. Nadal and Djovovic can handle it ok but Andy lets it affect him at key moments. Like when a break up in the final set in Tokyo and with match points. Andy would have won that if he had remained focussed.

I see that on live-tennis-eu Andy is back at no2 position in live rankings Perhaps this tennis dearth is nearly over and the battle for no2 position starts again. Can't come soon enough for me

Probably down to Raonic looking like the love child of Bill Gates and Howard Jones... pretty distracting stuff

the bottom line is ...a player who has been consistently in the top 4 for years now....has won a major....and is currently sitting at No2 in the world rankings ....shouldnt be too concerned about any opponent until at least the semis... he should be confident of winning those matches....and so should his fans. Clay or no clay.

Im confident that when RG comes around Andy will be there or thereabouts challenging along with the other top guys to win the tourno.

Raonic is not a problem for Andy. He'll beat him every time when it matters.

Also we should take into account that Andy was quite ill in Tokyo when he last played Milos. If he had been well would have beaten Milos so I think we can forget the H2H could be Andy leading the H2H.

I think Andy was knackered after winning the USO as well to be honest. He did have match points against Raonic, we shouldn't forget that. Personally I think he would have won if he'd been mentally fresh. I don't care though, he beat Raonic when it really mattered, at the USO. He lost to Djokovic in Shanghai last year too after having match points. To my mind the same point applies though. With all due respect to Milos and Novak, Andy got the ones that mattered.

I'm never sure how much you can read into a H2H. Andy's with Raonic could, in another situation, be in his favour. As I said, Andy could have won in Tokyo, he did have match points. Also they have a walkover each, which obviously doesn't count, but as they were on hard you could, maybe, say Andy would have been favourite to come through. Even if you credit Raonic for Tokyo, which you should, he did win, if they'd played the walkovers and Andy had won he'd be 3-2 up against Raonic, rather than 2-1 down. That would put the head to head in a different light. Some of us might still need a cushion to hide behind when they meet, (not me, I'm unflappable these days lol) but it wouldn't be so scary.

I think Andy will be fine in Madrid. I'm really looking forward to seeing him play.

Well they can't have gone on to win Wimbledon when it was a Hard tournament because it was in October.

Exactly, so it sounds like it's just one of those quirky things that happen from time to time in tennis, which also means Andy not winning Wimbledon because he didn't win Madrid is a pile of steaming cr*p

And anyway, so what if it was played in October? it could have meant Wimbledon the following year, the statement would still apply but the tweeter didn't mention that.

Now if every winner of the Madrid masters went on to win Wimbledon the following year and then when it moved to May, then i would think higher beings may be at work Smile
