Ahead of the rematch tonight, Milos Raonic admits he could have done a better job in certain areas in his Wimbledon final loss to Andy Murray.
“I think there are a lot of discussions that we’ve had with my team about situations in that final that I could have dealt with better,” Raonic said Friday in Cincinnati. “I’m definitely going to try to enforce those things, because these are the moments that I can really work on those things, incorporate those things, and hopefully overcome those things.”
On ESPN, he went into more specifics and about what advice coach John McEnroe gave him. “There were certain moments and I thought I was really putting out all the intensity mentally. He told me he felt I missed a few important moments where I could have showed some intensity. I re-watched the match and saw seven key moments.
“If I want to make the steps forward in the big tournaments, that’s going to make the biggest difference.”
Raonic also added he doesn’t dwell much in the past. “What happened a month ago is I could have had thoughts about what happened three weeks before that. Those kind of things are very short-lived in tennis. The tennis world moves on very quickly.”
Raonic, though, is just 3-7 against Murray losing his last six, including four losses already this year to the Scot.
