Milos Raonic Wins the Thailand Open

Milos Raonic defeated the top seed Tomas Berdych in straight sets 7-6, 6-3 to secure his fifth ATP tour title in Bangkok at the Thailand Open.

The first set went with serve, although Raonic had to fend off a set point at 5-6 before taking it into a tiebreak that he won 7-4.

The Canadian broke early in the second set and protected his lead with a display of serving excellence, thundering down 18 aces in total.

“I knew I had to play slightly more aggressive, not just put the ball in play. I did that and was able to take control, I got some insight into what I needed to do to beat him,” stated the 22-year-old Canadian after the match. His approach paid dividends in securing the title and improving his personal head-to-head with Berdych to 2-0.

Jamie Murray of the UK and Australian John Peers won the men’s doubles title with a 6-3, 3-6 [10-6] victory over Tomasz Bednarek and Johan Brunstrom.
