Milos Raonic v Fernando Verdasco Live
The 10th seeded Canadian Milos Raonic will meet his Spanish adversary Fernando Verdasco, in the second round of the 2015 US Open, on Wednesday afternoon in New York.
Milos Raonic started out his run in the tournament on a fairly decent note by moving past the American Tim Smyczek in straight sets 6-4, 7-6(8), 6-1. Fernando Verdasco on the other hand faced a lot of troubles against the German Tommy Haas, whom he had to defeat in five sets 3-6, 6-1, 6-7(7), 6-3, 6-1. Considering Milos Raonic’s performance over the last couple of tournaments, it has been an uneventful one. His US Open series was disappointing, having lost his opening match in Rogers Cup to Ivo Karlovic, and incurred a similar result in the Cincinnati Masters at the hands of Feliciano Lopez. His best run of the season came in Indian Wells, where he was the semifinalist.
As for Fernando Verdasco, he has been struggling a lot with his form this season and has a record of 21-19. His year has been a really rocky one, and the best he has done is reaching the fourth round in Miami Masters. This match is going to be an interesting one, and for me, Milos Raonic is the favorite to win here.
