Raonic Set to Take on Hewitt in Round of 16 match at Citi Open

Milos Raonic   By Dave Gertler (July 31, 2014) WASHINGTON, DC – Last year’s Citi Open in Washington, D.C. played a crucial role in the lead-up to what would be Milos Raonic’s first appearance in a Masters 1000 final. At the time, he was still ranked outside the top 10, had never made it past the round of 16 at a major, and promptly bowed out to Australian journeyman Marinko...

French Open slows down, test ahead for Monfils

Things have started to slow down a little bit at Roland Garros as we move to get the semifinals set. Novak Djokovic bludgeoned his way past Milos Raonic in one quarterfinal, and in a somewhat unexpected turn, Ernests Gulbis took down Tomas Berdych in the other. Djokovic’s result surprised me not at all; Gulbis’s quite a bit. They way that he tore through Berdych really just highlights...
