  • Harrison advances, Raonic falls in Newport

    7/13/12 12:55 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Canadian serving ace Milos Raonic continued to have difficulty on grass, with the No. 3 seed going down to German veteran Benjamin Becker.

    No. 3 seed Milos Raonic went down meekly to Benjamin Becker, the veteran from Germany ranked 112 in the world. The biggest problem for the Canadian in this match was a dismal serving day, which accounted for a meager 50% first serves in and just 5 aces for the match. In fact, Becker had more aces at 7 than Raonic did.

    Raonic was broken 3 times in the match, once in the first set and twice in the second. He had a pair of chances to break Becker in the second but failed to convert. Becker will take on American Ryan Harrison in the quarterfinals.

    Ryan Harrison (6) def. Jesse Levine 6-3, 6-4

    American hopeful Ryan Harrison continued his good grass court form in Newport with a straight set victory over compatriot Jesse Levine.

    Levine contributed to the Harrison cause by serving at 48% for the match. Harrison was able to secure one break of serve in each set, while taking care of his own service games. The No. 6 seed won just 9 more points than Levine, but he won the more important points.

    Harrison will be back on court on Friday against Benjamin Becker as the last of the quarterfinals are played.

This Raonic guy is very over rated. Wasn't he supposed to be the second coming of Sampras on grass especially? Disappointing actually.

He's really much better on hard courts. He doesn't seem to know how to move on grass.

He isn't even the second coming of Agassi on grass.

Definitely not. Agassi won Wimbledon for his first slam. Players seem to take a long time to master grass these days. Boris really was extraordinary.

Roanic and Isner are both light years ahead on hard courts from where they are on grass.

They can't return on grass and they can't bend down to hit necessary groundstrokes. Same with Del Potro. Slice them to death on grass.

Yes, Boris really truly was extraordinary. Guy was a genius on grass.
