Milos Raonic served 25 aces and never lost a service game in defeating Italian Andreas Seppi in the second round at Wimbledon 7-6(5), 6-4, 6-2. But the the big Canadian who seems tailor-made for Wimbledon success had to play two very close sets nonetheless against World No. 45 Seppi. The good news is Raonic needed about two hours and just three sets; the concern could be that on the receiving side he looked vulnerable until the third set.
Then again at Wimbledon a big serve coupled with an above average ground game has delivered the trophy before. (See Sampras, Pete.) Raonic, seeded sixth, will face American and World No. 26 Jack Sock in round three. Raonic has been working with John McEnroe to prepare for Wimbledon. McEnroe has said he’s one of 5 or 6 guys who can win it.
