22-year-old Canadian will play for his third straight title in San Jose
Milos Raonic (Thornhill, ON) will play for his third consecutive title at the SAP Open on Sunday, an ATP World Tour 250 event currently underway in San Jose, California.
On Saturday night, top-seeded Raonic defeated third-seeded American Sam Querrey 6-4, 6-2 to advance to his seventh career ATP final and third straight championship match on the indoor courts at the HP Pavilion. The 22-year-old was virtually flawless in the semifinals, losing just five points on serve including 12 aces. He also broke serve three times. The win was Raonic’s first victory over Querrey in three meetings.
Raonic remains undefeated at the SAP Open in his three appearances. Furthermore, he has not lost a set during his San Jose winning streak and is also perfect in tiebreaks.
In Sunday’s final, Raonic will face former world No. 2 Tommy Haas of Germany who defeated American John Isner in Saturday’s first semifinal. The two have never played before. The match will be shown live on Sunday at 6 p.m. ET on Sportsnet ONE.
