Milos Raonic v Maximilian Marterer Head to Head
The pair has never met before at the highest level of tennis either at the ATP or Challengers.
Raonic to Continue his Big Tournament Form?
Since the start of this season, Raonic has featured in five tournaments. In the two big ones, the Australian Open and the Indian Wells Masters, he has done rather well.
There was a quarter-final appearance at the year’s first ever Grand Slam where he lost to Lucas Pouille – and it was a shock loss alright – and that was followed by a semi-final at Indian Wells. There he went down to Dominic Thiem, his first real threat.
What would worry Raonic is what he’s done elsewhere. Six matches played, three won and three lost and that is not the kind of consistency you want from a player wanting to break back into the top 10 and possibly even qualify for the World Tour Finals.
That said, Marterer shouldn’t prove to be much of a threat.
Marterer Aiming for his First Back to Back Wins in Main Draw
It’s been that kind of a season for the German. In no tournament has he won two successive matches in the main draw, having done that during the qualifiers alone. First round exits at Auckland, Cordoba, Rio and Sao Paulo have only added to his form issues.
Which is why when he got to round two at the Indian Wells Masters and then beat Taylor Fritz in the first round here in Miami, it would have given him some sort of a relief. Now, for him to try and win back to back matches but to do that against the fast-serving Raonic will be a toughie.
