Jordan Thompson vs Milos Raonic – Match Predictions
Milos Raonic to Win
Based on their current form and previous head-to-head record, Raonic looks to be the favourite to win his Round of 16 match against Thompson at the Libema Open. In his first-round victory, Raonic was fluid on the court, knocking 15 aces and winning 34/37 of his first-serve points against 39-ranked Miomir Kecmanovic. Meanwhile, Thompson needed a tiebreaker to clinch his win against Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard. Although Thompson’s recent form has been impressive, Raonic’s dominant serve and aggressive style of play make him a formidable opponent for any player. Despite being away from the court for a long time, it seems likely that Raonic will come out on top in this exciting match.
2-0 to Milos Raonic
We believe that Raonic should triumph in straight sets. In their only previous encounter back in 2015 at the Miami Open, the Canadian emerged victorious in straight sets, winning 6-2, 6-1. While he has been away, it does not seem much has changed. While he effortlessly defeated Miomir, Thompson had difficulty getting past 233-ranked Perricard. On his return, he had a 92% first-serve points winning percentage and will look to put it to good use against his Australian rival. Overall, it seems likely that Raonic will have the upper hand in this matchup and will win in straight sets.

He won titles recently at the Rome GA Challenger and the Gwangju Challenger and progressed to the third round at the Indian Wells Masters.

Despite this long absence from competition, Raonic looked incredibly sharp in his first-round victory over Kecmanovic, where he won comfortably in straight sets while only dropping one game. Raonic’s powerful serve has long been one of his key strengths and it was on show as he knocked 15 aces against the Serbian star.
