Milos Raonic beats American at Rogers Cup
Won in three sets but two were tiebreakers
0 0

Milos Raonic wasn't at his best but was relieved to stay alive at the Rogers Cup.

Despite a serve that was intimidating but not perfect and some erratic play, Raonic won two tiebreaks to beat American Jack Sock 4-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (4) on centre court Wednesday night at Rexall Centre.

"All the difficulties getting through that match, facing break points two of my service games consecutively, doing a poor job in converting the chances I had," Raonic said. "All those things that maybe if it doesn't go your way you would've said, 'I wish I did this differently, and this and this in these situations,' all that, let's say weight that might be on your shoulders, it's the relief of that just sort of getting off."

Amid chants of "Let's Go Milos," Raonic kept Canadian hope alive in the tournament. On Tuesday, all four men who played singles were eliminated, and Eugenie Bouchard bowed out in Montreal.

Raonic cranked his serve up past 200 kilometres per hour, finishing with 15 aces that helped offset some struggles against Sock, who played some of his best tennis even in defeat.

Julien Benneteau of France awaits Raonic in the third round Thursday night.
