Milos Raonic vs Tommy Paul – Match Predictions

Over 38.5 Games

Mochizuki was about to force a tiebreaker in his first set against Paul but could not manage the pressure. On the other hand, Raonic’s serve bailed him out against the Austrian Novak. Despite this, there were two tie-breakers, one going in favour of the Canadian and one against him. There was a tiebreaker in Raonic’s losing duel with Jordan Thompson as well. With the former world number 3 involved in tiebreakers and long duels on his return, we expect to see more of the same in this duel. With both players holding their serve, we will have to go beyond 38.5 games to find a conclusion in this game.

3-1 to Tommy Paul

There are no doubts about Raonic’s abilities but can his fitness hold up is a different question. In Paul, he comes up against a rival who just came second in a championship final at Eastbourne International and eager to give a decent account of his abilities at the All England Club. While his victory over Mochizuki came in straight sets, he can be troubled by Raonic’s big serve and doggedness. The Canadian should be able to claim a set but will ultimately be thwarted by Paul in a deciding set.

Milos Raonic vs Tommy Paul Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Wimbledon.

Milos Raonic

In his first competitive match since July 2021, Milos Raonic made a strong comeback at ‘s-Hertogenbosch last month. Delivering a superb performance against Miomir Kecmanovic, Raonic displayed his exceptional skills on the court. However, his journey faced an unexpected hurdle when he was halted by Jordan Thompson, the eventual runner-up, in the second round. Furthermore, a shoulder injury forced the Canadian to withdraw from the ATP London event, adding to the challenges he faces in maintaining his form. Despite these setbacks, Raonic showed determination in his first round win over Dennis Novak and his experience will make him a formidable opponent to watch out for in the upcoming clash at Wimbledon.

Tommy Paul

Tommy Paul enters the Wimbledon tournament following an injury sustained in the championship match at Eastbourne last week. Despite this setback, Paul managed to avoid an early exit thanks to fortunate circumstances such as rain delays and a comfortable opponent in the inexperienced Shintaro Mochizuki. Although his recent form might not have been convincing, Paul would be determined to make his mark at Wimbledon. In the upcoming second-round clash, Paul will face an opponent also grappling with fitness challenges, creating an intriguing battle of resilience on the grass courts.
