Raonic seems to be a bit frail, he hasn't had good luck with his body since coming on tour. I know you Canadians were looking forward to seeing him play, but tough decision as to who to root for.
Indeed - back problems, hip injury which needed surgery, recent knee injury and now this. And he's only 21. I do hope he isn't going to be one of those really good players whose careers are blighted by injury. He looks quite heavily built so that might have something to do with it.
Just checked again on bet365 and Andy's match which was scheduled for 7PM has disappeared, so came on here to check what going on, now I see that Raonic has pulled out. Disappointed I must say, was so looking forward to watch Andy play. Not much match practice for Andy now! Glad he has gone to the practice court though.
So typical of Andy - never wastes an opportunity to hit a few balls around - but nothing beats actually playing in a match. That said, part of me is quite relieved because Raonic would have been really tough, and I think I'd prefer Andy to play him with a few matches under his belt first..
