    You continue to have faith in Raonic after his abysmal grass court season. He is on my list of players i rather avoid trading. The others are Dolgopolov, Brands, Keys, Robson and Cristea just to name recent names. Dolgo, Cristea and Brands are just hit and miss players. Keys,Robson are just too young and dont perform consistently against especially underdogs. Keys lost already in 1st round in previous tournament. She is the next american hope to win Grand Slam and it takes a lot to handle the expectations. Another player that comes to mind is younger Radwanska that has more talent than her more famous sister but will always hover around 30-50 in rankings. Keys will probably end up the same way.

      Hi Marius

      Indeed I expect Raonic to rise up in rankings soon. I just don’t see him having many weaknesses. For me his weakness really is mental rather than physical. He simply has one of the toughest of serves in ATP and he is not like other big players such as Isner or Karlovic who can’t be bothered to run around. He is much more hardworking than either of them and hence I am confident of him continuing to perform especially on his favourite surface of HARD COURT!

      In relation to Keys, I feel the same. After Serena, America’s next big gun could easily be Keys. Again she’s still learning things but one of the key weapons you need to have to win in WTA is serve. Keys easily gets a check mark in that category. Overall, I see her winning more matches in the future than losing. Hopefully she performs well in the upcoming US open!

    Raonic and Keys both lost. It can happen. And Raonic have risen enough before in
    rankings. You want to bet on guys with big serve? How about Jano? He is at least fearless and it can not be said about other guys. You stressed a mental aspect and imo
    both Keys and Raonic dont qualify in that department. Actually Keys just turned 18 and she needs few years at least. Raonic is 23 and has been around for a while.
    Just offering other take after watching tennis for more than 20 years.

      Hi Mariusz

      First of all, Raonic or Keys losing yesterday isn’t the whole point of our discussion. I rate both players very highly and that is going to stand whether their current form is poor or not.

      Raonic did have chances to put this to a 3rd set but sadly he choked again. As I pointed out, his weakness is mental not physical! Also please bear in mind I did not recommend BH ing on Raonic as the odds were too low. My point was overall, I think Raonic is a great hard court player and he has done well on North American Hard Courts. That is something to take note of for the upcoming US open.

      About Keys, now. Yes she did lose but you cannot tell me that she was outclassed..This could have easily gone to Keys but Niculescu somehow held on..However even though I suggested this for BH, the simple fact that there were no streams for this match meant you had to avoid it. However from a trading point of view, this match probably was one of the best to trade this year!

      I don’t have any regrets for giving tips for either of these players, as again, being Nostradamus is not my intention. Assessing their talent overall is, and that is where I stand..The key point for me is, ‘IN THE LONG RUN’ I feel both these players will make you more money and I stand by that confidence 100%..

      Thanks again for your comment…
