  1. He's match fit - he just doesn't want to be at Man U anymore. He will be moved to Chelsea if he gets his wish.
  2. Aside from one nice strike - I'd say he's been a disappointment all year. He won't be back.
  3. Bouchard certainly held her own by taking a set - she has a bright future. Raonic advances and Pospisil is out. I hate to say it, but he needs to find a way to elevate his game outside of Canada. If he doesn't, he's going to struggle to compete in the top 40. He lost to a qualifier today. Inset v Raonic has the makings of a good match. Whose serve will crack first. Lets hope we don't see any of Raonic's 120 km second serves
  4. O'brien should be back in for their next match. That'll offer a boost.
  5. The thing about Prospisil is he performs for home crowds - he's an emotional player who thrives off of the energy. That's good and bad. But make no mistake, there's a reason the younger Raonic is ranked significantly higher. He is the better player. Yes, Prospisil is more athletic, but his advantage stops there. Raonic's serve and forehand are world class - enough to propel him to #10 in the world. If he can ever get his backhand and consistency to another level, hell be challenging the top 4. Remember, he's 22.
  6. This is certainly Raonic's best shot at breaking through: home crowd vs Nadal. Nadal looked very good though. milos's serve needs to be dynamite and Nadal needs to hiccup a couple time. It can happen - buy we need to see Raonic's best tmr.
  7. I'm torn on who to cheer for. Part of me wants Raonic just cause I think he has a better shot to win. Having said that, with the crowd behind him, Pospisil could surprise.
  8. You're nuts. You'd give him up for player you hope reaches his potential in 5 years time? Give your head a shake.
  9. He's gone through very much a rough patch. Stagnated, new coach etc. But I see today's events as a positive. After giving a game back, he battled and got the victory - this after an awful second set. Sorry, wasnt trying to come at you. I'm sure were both in the same boat: would love to see Raonic battle with the Tongas etc for now, and eventually move into top 4 contention. I think today was a positive move forward. His past makes me wait and see - i really hope there isn't a let down.
  10. All quiet now that he pulled it off i see.
  11. Nothing to see here. Tanev has zero leverage aside from not playing this year - only pausing negotiations. He will sign.
  12. Yesssssss
  13. I think Horvat will be a solid, if not well above average NHLer, but I just don't see him jumping into the Canucks' lineup right away. Torts is all about the "process" with young talent. That may mean playing 8 games, gets a taste, goes back to junior, and is ready to crack the big club the following season. Of course, if he develops beyond the norm it's possible his "process" states that he's ready for the NHL. However, I see Gaunce having a better shot this year. And for the Canucks, right now, what they need is a reliable 3rd line center who won't frack things up. Gaunce has a far better chance. I still love the Bo pick. I just think it'll be a yet or two before we see the fruits as it were.
  14. Given that fanatics like to threaten those who do meet their moral high ground with hell fire, I'm going to say that Satan is still an option, therefor not defeated.
