Raonic vs Pouille (By: Khum)

Australian Open

QF

Milos Raonic - Lucas Pouille

I'll start abruptly: the Canadian looks unstoppable these days!

His serve looks better than ever, his forehand is ruthless and he improved his backand slice, a valuable weapon on this fast and low bouncing surface. He's coming to the net with high efficiency and I see him as a serious contender for the Australian Open trophy. And that means a lot, while Nadal and Djokovic are still in the race.

Pouille seems to come back up of his slumpy 2018, and he's done very well reaching the quarterfinals in a tournament where he was 0-5 for his last 5 participations. He capitalized the fact that the draw has opened for him, yet this has an and when he's meeting a Raonic in a scary form.

Milos has already met 4 dirrefent kind of players so he exercised his game against different styles of play.

I believe Pouille lacks the weapons one would need in order to bother Raonic on his service games and for the case he's holding his serve up till 6-6, let's take note that Milos have already won 6 tie-breakers out of the 7 he played so far in the tournament.

Let's go green!

I see Raonic also wining in 3 sets. @khum what is your opinion on Tsitsipas vs Nadal. Can the greek cause another upset? Thanks and GL

Thank you and good luck to you as well 😉

I think Tsitsipas will at least cover.
Today I had the slight sensation that Rafa was not 100% on phisical level.
I believe Tsitsipas has what it takes in order to reach the final and mostly has the mindset few guys in the tour have.
If i'll be forced to bet on that game I'll go with Tsitsipas +6 @ 2.04
The valuable bet there I think it's Tsitsipas&over 36.5 games @ 9.30 odds.
It reminds me a bit of two beautiful bets, Wawrinka&over @ 6.something odds in the Roland Garros final against Djokovic and Muguruza&over oane year after, in Paris as well.

I'll make my decision tomorrow, but very likely I'm gonna place that bet at 9.30 odds prematch and I'll bet live once more after I see the first 3-4 games.
It's the way I took Tsitsipas @ 2.45 against Bautista, Under 28.5 at Nadal vs Tiafoe, under 20.5 at Kvitova - Barty (compensated the prematch over) and 2.85 on Collins. All of them this morning.

Best of luck!
