• Raonic begins Halle bid against Petzschner

    Raonic begins Halle bid against Petzschner Milos Raonic will kick off his 2012 grass-court season against German veteran Philipp Petzschner, who got into the draw as a wildcard.

    Canadian Milos Raonic is no stranger to Philipp Petzschner. The two men have played three times already, one of the meetings coming just this year on the hard courts of the Australian Open. In fact, the only match Petzschner won was on the courts in Halle a year ago. The German took that match in three sets.

    Raonic comes into the match as the heavy favorite. The Canadian is ranked 22nd in the world at the moment, much higher than Petzschner's No. 98 position. But the German will have the crowd on his side and he will have a shot at Raonic in his first grass court match of the year.

    The Canadian's success will depend, as it often does, on his serve. Raonic wins many free points off his first serve. If he puts in a good serving day and serves at a high percentage, he should snag the win in straight sets. If, however, his serve is off, Petzschner will have at least some chances at pulling off the upset.

    Prediction – Raonic in straight sets.
