Barry Cowan says Milos Raonic was immaculate on serve during his victory over Gael Monfils at the ATP World Tour Finals, and this could be the time to finally beat Novak Djokovic on Tuesday. Nico Siragusa Ravens Jersey . Raonic showed no sign of the leg injury that put his place in the ATP World Tour Finals at risk when he beat debutant Monfils handsomely at the O2 Arena on Sunday. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Wimbledon runner-up Raonic made a flying start with a 6-3 6-4 Ivan Lendl Group victory over French showman Monfils. The world No 4, standing 1.96 metres tall and weighing in at nearly 100kg, moved surprisingly smoothly, and Cowan feels his performance put down a marker for Djokovic, who looked out of sorts during his three-set victory over Dominic Thiem. Highlights of Milos Raonic v Gael Monfils at the World Tour Finals Raonic has yet to record a victory in eight matches over former world No 1 Djokovic, including defeats at Indian Wells and Madrid earlier this year.Ive always thought if there was a player that would win a Grand Slam, and I think he is very, very dangerous. In the Djokovic group, he is the player that could potentially beat Djokovic, said the Sky Sports Tennis analyst.I think its really exciting about what could happen tomorrow. He has struggled against Djokovic in the past mentally, but you have to say that now is a good a time as any if he wants to beat him. Raonic was at the Sky Pad with Mark Petchey explaining his service action, how meditation helps his relax, and why he hates eating dates Cowan also feels the Canadian must play smart tennis in order to overcome his losing streak against the Serb.I think generally Djokovic likes playing big servers, so Raonic has got to be smart tactically, hes got to serve and volley, not the whole time, but he has to especially on the second serve, he said.In the final of Indian Wells he got stuck of being in a rut on his second serve and barely won a point. It will be a bit more competitive but the memory of that defeat will be there. Raonic was delighted after kicking off his Tour Finals with an impressive win over Monfils But Milos will be saying, Marin Cilic lost 14 times in a row against Djokovic and then beat him, so why cant I?. This is as good a chance as hes ever had. Hes got to be smart and the second serve will decide whether he can keep holding onto his serve.Check our game-by-game coverage from all group matches at the ATP World Tour Finals in London - including Milos Raonic against Novak Djokovic - on skysports.com/tennis, our app for mobile devices and iPad and our Twitter account @skysportstennis.

Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series.http:///...liams-Ravens-Jersey/ . Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. Jeet Ravals match-aggregate of 91 in a low-scorer has made him a possible solution to New Zealands opening woes, but he is a player that had piqued the selectors interest for some time, coach Mike Hesson said. One of the steadier hands in domestic cricket, Raval has averaged less than 40 in only one of the past eight first-class seasons. A correct batsman who favours the leg-side, Raval was an assured presence on debut, both with bat in hand, and in the slip cordon.For Jeet to make his debut in conditions like this where hes performed in over the last few years, was great, Hesson said. I thought his decision-making throughout was exceptional, especially around whether to leave or to defend. He stuck to his game plan - hes very disciplined and knows what that is. He was challenged over, and around the wicket. He was tested with short balls and swing. He stood up to all of them. I thought against Yasir Shah he showed he could come down the wicket, pick off his pads, and lap. He never went outside his plan even when he was challenged, which is a great sign.New Zealands other debutant, Colin de Grandhomme, had also been in the selectors sights for years. He earned his place in the Test squad after hitting a 144 not out off 147 balls, in an extraordinary chase of 373 in a first-class match, on November 1.Colin has been a talented player for a long time, but weve sort of been waiting for something to click - for him to show that hes worked out how to play at first-class level first, Hesson said. In the last six months weve seen some good signs of that, with bat and ball. It was just a matter of time really,, whether it be short-form or long-form. Nico Siragusa Youth Jersey. He needed to work out his own game plan. People do mature at different stages. In this instance Colin is probably slightly a late maturer, but hes got plenty of years left in him.Though de Grandhomme himself admitted batting was his foremost suit, it was with the ball that he made the biggest impression, taking 7 for 64 in the Test, and sparking Pakistans second-day collapse which allowed New Zealand to take control of the match. New Zealand had a more experienced allrounder in James Neesham in their squad, but had surprisingly opted for de Grandhomme instead.No one thought Colin was playing a couple of days out, Hesson said. But he was presented with a surface that suited his skill set. Hes been doing that in first class cricket for years, on that type of wicket. Weve got scouts and selectors all around the country who watch a lot of cricket.The teams now head to Hamilton, where New Zealand have the opportunity to defeat Pakistan in a Test series for the first time since 1985 - though, said Hesson, the chance to alter that particular record doesnt necessarily motivate his side.Weve had a lot of series recently where if you do this, or if you do that, you could create something. Well wait and see. Weve got to enjoy the last three days which have been an incredibly good performance. Well enjoy and suck that up for a little bit. When we get to Hamilton well think about Hamilton.Both teams are scheduled to travel on Tuesday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
