That sounds like the most boring game of tennis ever.

 

Not so. There were some brilliant painting the lines winners from Raonic and superb volleying from Lopez.

Yes! Raonic pulls it out. I've gained some respect for Feli Lopez today. Super clutch on BP and MP and he never stopped fighting.

Nice win for Milos.

 

The quarters are going to be tough for Canada. Milos gets Joker and Genie has to take on Sharapova. Anything can happen, but it's not looking too good....

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I liked how Milos kept composed....Lopez started talking to himself a lot but kept coming at him.  Was a good match, could have gone either way but Milos came through when needed.  His serve really helped him at the end.

Milos has improved his serve return. Good match for him

I hope Genie can make it a competitive match against Sharapova

I thought that as well...last year many of Lopez"s serves would be returned into the net or missed.

Too many errors for Genie. 20 in the first set! Still lots to learn but she's on the right path

Wish Genie had kept it tighter than 3 and 2. Must work on serve and unforced errors

With how Nadal is playing, Raonic is unlucky he didn't draw him.

Im finding her harder to watch ..time for her to fall from her throne...also time for Genie to beat one of the top seeds.

It was a good thing.

 

Cringe worthy tennis from Bouchard. She was not into it at any point.

 

Let's go Milosssss

At this point in her career, for Genie to beat a top flight player like Sharapova or Serena, she has to be at her very best and hope that her opponent isn't.

 

The exact opposite happened last night.

I would say the exact same thing for Milos. Let's hope he ends up faring better. Even if he doesn't win, he needs to make the match competitive to show his growth.

Euhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Sharapova's still too experienced for Bouchard. Good luck at Roland Garros! 

 

Raonic really got the short end of the stick with the draw, huh?

I'd say the sky is the limit for both Raonic and Bouchard. Most of the players that have made it to the top have progressed in the same way. In a couple of years I think they'll both be top 3 in the world. Hopefully they can win some major titles before then.

Madison Keys beats Venus. Would have loved to see a Serena vs Venus match at a Slam. It's been awhile.

I am really annoyed by Genie's "there are no friends on tour" attitude. A few years ago she was making Gangam Style videos with Madison and now she calls everyone "my opponent"?

Serena, Azarenka, Wozniacki, Kvitova, Roger, Rafa, Novak, etc. are all the best in the game and they don't seem to have issues having friends on tour.

I just think it's not the type of person she is. She was coached to say those things but IMO it's a waste to spend most of the year on tour with these people and not get to at least know them a little bit

If it's working for her and she feels comfortable with it, I don't see a big problem with it.

 

Although, I don't see how it's going to hurt her (on the court particularly) being friends w others on tour.

For all the hoopla, neither Milos nor Genie have been very competitive against the elite. Lots to work on there

Also hearing that Genie will not be playing Fed Cup in Quebec City. Very disappointing if true. A bit early for her to be snubbing her country
