Wimbledon | Raonic in three tiebreaks
MILOS Raonic, the beaten 2016 Wimbledon finalist, saw off Australian John Millman 7-6(4) 7-6(4) 7-6(4) to make the third round for the sixth year in a row.
And the 13th seed felt blinking marvellous after enduring the sun his eyes at the end of the second set.
got stuck on that service game serving for the set with the sun in my eyes, Milos Raonic
The Canadian defeated by Britain’s Andy Murray in the final two years ago has suffered wrist problems.
But his victory over unseeded Millman proves he is on his way back.
He said: “For the first set and a half I didn’t really create much, especially on his serve. I was fortunate to get through that tiebreaker on two well-played points. And then I thought I started playing well midway through the second set.
“I got stuck on that service game serving for the set with the sun in my eyes, but other than that, I think I beat him quite a few games to 30, had some opportunities that I just didn’t make the most of. But overall happy to be through and happy to be moving on.”
