Rising Canadian Milos Raonic will begin his Wimbledon campaign today as he gears up to face Santiago Giraldo. Raonic has been in amazing form this year and is looking forward to creating some stir in the Men's draw. He is a dangerous campaigner as his serve is second to none.
Raonic has been one of the most improved players on tour this year. He is definitely one of the players to watch in this season and if he continues to play at this level, he will soon crack the top ten. Further evidence that reiterates his fantastic season is the fact that he has already claimed two ATP titles in San Jose and Chennai. Raonic is gunning for his fourth career title and his first Grand Slam title. He also has a stellar 26-9 win-loss record.
On grass you get value for your shots and his serve will rest assured get a lot of value at the All England Club.
On the other side of the court, Santiago Giraldo has himself had a half decent year and has gone from No. 55 in the world to 45 in it. Giraldo's highest singles' rank is 44 and he is very close to it now. His win-loss record is at 18-15 this year, but the Colombian doesn't really like grass. At Roland Garros, Giraldo did well to make it to the third round where he was ousted by World No.4 Andy Roddick.
Their head-to-head record is a 1 to nothing for Giraldo. That meeting came back in 2010 and the Colombian won it in 4 sets.
TennisEarth picks Raonic to set the record straight and out serve and out smart Giraldo.
