Milos Raonic v Guido Pella Head to Head
This will be a first meeting between Raonic and Pella.
Forget NextGen, Raonic Could Be Next Grand Slam Champion
Milos Raonic’s name in the fourth round of the Wimbledon singles championships has taken many by surprise. That is not majorly because of his recent demise as a Top 10 player, but largely due to a handful of injuries over the last couple of seasons compounded with his limited game time.
The big serving Canadian is a proven grass-court player at this level having reached the Wimbledon final in 2016 and losing to an in-form Andy Murray. For Raonic – who has moved a spot in the rankings to No.17 – following two decent results in Stuttgart and Queens, is one of the most consistent players on tour.
Despite pulling out of the French Open due to knee injury and the recent emergence of Felix Auger-Aliassime, the 15th seed is the sole Canadian left in the singles draw. He has taken advantage of the kind draw given to him in the first week after sweeping past Prajnesh Gunneswaran, Robin Haase and Reilly Opelka without dropping a set. His first real test though will come in the fourth round against a man who knows a thing or two about upsetting the favorites.
Guido Pella Is A Force To Be Reckoned With On Grass
Guido Pella is now making it a habit of upsetting the big names every year at Wimbledon. The Argentinean left-hander knocked out last year’s runner-up Kevin Anderson in straight sets, playing with great variety and keeping the fourth seeded South African on the move before closing out a 6-4 6-3 7-6 victory in two and half hours.
This is now the second time in the last two years that Pella has knocked out a runner-up of a previous year at The Championships. Twelve months ago, the 29-year-old shocked Croatia’s Marin Cilic in the second round, coming from two sets down to win a thrilling five-setter. Pella had never won a grass-court match prior to Wimbledon last year, but he managed to reach the third round.
This year, the Sao Paulo champion has gone one better and he is now seeking his second scalp in as many days. In reaching the fourth round at SW19, this is officially Pella’s best ever Grand Slam singles result. Will he be able to sustain the pressure for one more match?
Raonic v Pella Predictions & Tips
Milos Raonic is the better grass-court player of the two, but if there is anything that Pella has displayed over the course of the last two Wimbledon Championships is that he can hang tough against the best when it matters most. The Canadian is certainly more consistent and potent in his service games, and it will take a monumental effort for Pella to take a set off him. The Argentine’s lefty forehand has been firing on all cylinders, and if he can keep his level, he could do some damage. I still fancy Raonic to win here, but expect the 26th seed to grab at least a set.
Tip: Raonic to win in four sets: 11/4 (888Sport)
