To be honest, I don't think much of Raonic. He's pretty stiff. He's got a great serve, due to his height, but not much else. He's too big bodied to move well, which is a premium in today's tennis.
Ayuh.
Perhaps he should spend some quality time with Pat Etcheberry. :lifting)

all true but he is Canadian  :). In Canada if you don't watch hockey 24/7 you are not patriotic  ..-). We have nobody but Raonic and a good old Nestor. It must count for something  :innocent:.

The sad thing is things are not much better in the States  :zipped:. I like Sock ... but,

Frank Dancevic?

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

If you got with Pat Etcheberry, would you be able to move like Djokcovic or Murray?
I'm not talking about his fitness, just his body type.

I love Frank, great personality. I really think he should've achieved so much more. Injuries, injuries ... you know but thanks for making me depressed  :depressed:.

anyways, I really hope that Filip Peliwo will make it  :spot on:

Fed's the biggest loser of 2013.

I actually met Frank a few years ago at Newport. Drove him in from the airport. He was very..... normal. I liked him too.

No, I would not.
But I would certainly improve immensely, and perhaps reach the limits of what my body type is capable of (after several years of training :lmao:).
I think Raonic is not at the upper limits of his ability to move and could use some help in that department as well as improving his fitness.
