Mackenzie McDonald and Milos Raonic meet in the fourth round of the 2018 tennis Wimbledon.

Mackenzie McDonald is coming off a straight sets win over Guido Pella that took 33 games to decide. In the victory, McDonald won 81 percent of his first serve points and 53 percent of his second serve points. McDonald won 73 percent of his total service points and hit 36 winners in his third round victory. McDonald has been very impressive with his serve this tournament and has combined for 22 aces in his last three matches. McDonald has become somewhat of the cinderella of the tournament, as this is just his third career grand slam appearance and he has very little ATP experience overall at 23 years old. Needless to say, this is a life changing experience for the youngster from California. McDonald has a chance to make his first career grand slam quarterfinal. McDonald has won six of his last eight matches on grass court.

Milos Raonic is coming off a straight sets win over Dennis Novak that took 43 games to decide. In the victory, Raonic won 87 percent of his first serve points and 64 percent of his second serve points. Raonic won 80 percent of his total service points and produced 75 winners in his third round victory. Raonic has combined for 142 winners in his last two matches and continues to serve out of his mind. In his current form, Raonic has a chance to really make a grand slam title run. Raonic hopes to make his eighth career grand slam quarterfinal and fourth quarterfinal in the Wimbledon. Raonic has won six of his last eight matches on grass court.

This will be the first ever meeting between these two players.

McDonald doesn’t have the experience to make it any further in this tournament, as he’s very green in ATP overall, let alone grand slam play. Not to mention Raonic is serving out of his mind and spraying winners with ease. At this level, Raonic is capable of beating anybody on the planet. 

Raonic makes the quarters of the Wimbledon yet again.

Milos Raonic
