Damn.... I'm no Roddick fan but you hate to see that.

So it's Hewitt/Raonic on now then? With the winner getting Novak?

The announcers pronounced Raonic "ray-oh-nich" for almost 2 sets until Canadians tweeted them. Those dudes were goofballs.

I've always wondered how you call a match without knowing how to pronounce a player's name correctly. Could have been worse I guess. At least they didn't call him "Ray-oh-NICK".

Well it SHOULD be televised. This game WILL be a centre court game (Hewitt an Aussie himself and former # 1 great story) and if Roanic wins he will improve in the ATP Rankings.

I'm not a big tennis fan by any means but everyone should watch this kid play. He is a GTA boy (which 80% of this forum is) and pretty dam good.

I also checked by Snet and TSN don't have a schedule. I'm not really worried about it being televised as I'll watch it on a stream if I know the time.

I heard it's Saturday afternoon. And I guess that would be Aussie time.

Considering Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of Toronto we may be fortunate and it would be played on Friday evening our time

The tourney site only shows Friday's matches, and no Milos, so I guess it's Saturday.

TSN has been showing the matches the next day, so hopefully that will be the case here.

Raonic gave the 2nd set to Hewitt

Tied 1-1 now


Although it is a difficult game for him. Playing a former #1 in his own backyard

Tough loss for Raonic . I'm sure facing Djokovic next round would be really good for him if he had won

Oh well

Hewitt really stepped his game up from what I saw early on in the tournament. Milos wasn't sharp enough when he went for the lines. Too many errors.

Well the fact he is centre court with a crowd clearly against him. I'll tack it up to experience as well. Hopefully he sees the good in this tourney for him.

Yep - it's hard to tell by his demeanor, but I thought he might be pretty tight. Had he gotten through a couple critical points in the third set it might have turned out quite different.
