Looks like Raonic is doing well and finally approaching the net

Slightly hampered by injury now and looks like he's going to lose the final set to love.  That said, Murray has really turned it on.

Edit : or not.  Really gutsy 5th game there.

I like his performance against the top players is improving greatly. He is going to bust through to a grandslam final soon.

Well he got smoked by one of the best players ever. What worries me is he is starting to play the injury card when he is losing bad. I will give him the benefit of the doubt on this one. :o

Mark your calendars, gentlemen. ..

Raonic to face Sam Querrey in the Quarter-Finals Wednesday at the 2016 Wimbledon championship.  Querrey, by the way, eliminated Novak Djokovic in a previous round.

GO MILOS!

Raonic defeats Sam Querrey in the Quarter-Finals matchup and will meet Roger Federer in the Semis.



The winner will play in the Finals against the winner of the Andy Murray-Thomas Berdych matchup.

I'd love to see a Raonic-Murray final.

Wish I'd taken the afternoon off to watch today's semi finals. Didn't go to Wimbledon this year (I go most years but didnt get anything in the ballot and didn't fancy queueing) and now starting to regret it.

I'm torn between wanting a Murray v Raonic final (which gives the edge to Murray) or a Murray v Federer final where I would be disappointed if Murray loses but happy for Federer to get one last slam. A true legend who will be missed when he retires.

We are half way there folks!

Let's hope Murray can hold up his side of the bargain.

Man I hope Raonic can win on Sunday.  What a historic day for Canadian tennis if he can pull it off.

Milos can wait a few more years for his chance, Murray winning Wimbledon, England soccer being embarrassed by Iceland and ruining their political prospects all in one summer would just be beautiful.
