Milos Raonic made Canadian tennis history Friday by defeating one of the sport's all-time greats on its biggest stage.

In rallying to beat seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer 6-3, 6-7 (3), 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 in the semifinals at the All England Club, the big-serving Thornhill, Ont., native became the first player representing Canada to reach a Grand Slam men's singles final.

Well done, shows what good coaching can do after hiring John McEnroe to add the polish to Milos's game.

I doubt that will happen, xerxes after all he's Canadian. :wink: Though I must say he looked like he was channeling Brad Jacobs with that fist pump at the end of the match. :D

Man it sure seems strange to have McEnroe doing the colour commentating on his player's match.

Murray beat him soundly.

He has to improve his return game if he wants to be at the very top. He has the potential to do so, especially when his serve is going well.

Since he has a tough time breaking serve, he constantly has long sets that go to tie breaks. He is 6'5 and the wear on his legs during such long matches is too much. If he can improve his return and break serve one or two times more in an entire match than he has the opportunity to win some Grand Slams.

He has cut down on his weight quite a bit, which I thought was something he needed to do having watched him in the past. Now he is more mobile, but has to get it all in synch with his return shot.

Congrats to Murray. He earned it.

He played Murray today, who for the first time played from the Favorite's chair this time. Murray's first 2 Championships came while he was holding the underdog chair.

On this perfect day with the perfect weather, on his homecourt in front of a sold out stadium. No one on the planet was going to beat Murray today.
