• Raonic and Querrey clash in battle of the big serves

    11/1/12 12:39 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Raonic and Querrey clash in battle of the big serves Milos Raonic, the 14th seed, and Sam Querrey, ranked 23rd in the world, will fight for a quarterfinal spot at the Paris Masters in a section of the draw now without Novak Djokovic.

    American Sam Querrey dispatched an ill Novak Djokovic in the second round in three sets to advance to the round of 16. Milos Raonic had a similarly difficult second-round match, but he battled against Frenchman Jeremy Chardy before winning in three.

    This match is not likely to include many long baseline rallies. Both men, but especially Raonic, have huge first serves which means that points are often won after one or two strokes instead of six or seven.

    Querrey and Raonic have played one other time, earlier this year at Wimbledon. Querrey won that match in four sets, three of which were tiebreakers. A similar result should be expected in their match on Thursday. Neither man is known for his return game; this match could well feature a trio of tiebreakers.

    Prediction - Querrey actually seems to be in slightly better form at the moment. He was particularly good in the last two sets of his match against Djokovic. The American for the slight upset in three.
