As one of the comms pointed out Andy made USO final at the same age as Raonic. Also Andy would never have spoken like that about an opponent prior to the match. While I think Raonic has to some extent redeemed himself with his response to his loss I don't think age really excuses his pre-match behaviour.
Btw did anyone notice that near start of 2nd set Andy gave a broad smile - I guess in direction of his box - as if to say the plan is working guys.
Everyone does and says stupid stuff at 21, as long as you can turn around and acknowledge you were wrong which he did.
It's strange how the younger generation here are defending Raonic while the older are bashing him apart with nasty name calling. Really, give the poor guy a break.
