Milos Raonic and Jack Sock meet Monday afternoon in the third round of the Miami Masters.
Milos Raonic is coming off a straight sets win over Denis Kudla in which took a first set tiebreak. Raonic has really been on a roll as of late, winning 15 of his last 17 singles matches and inching closer to sneaking back into top-10 in the world. Raonic has been really serving well and finishing points rather quickly as five of his last six wins have come in straight sets. Raonic may be off to his best start of his career and would love nothing more than to build on this momentum. Raonic has made at least the fourth round of the Miami Masters in each of the last two seasons.
Jack Sock is coming off a straight sets win over Sergiy Stakhovsky in which he retired in the second set. Sock is off to a brutal 2016 start, losing four of his last seven singles matches and continuing to struggle with consistency. Sock has shown flashes of being that next great American, but when the errors and poor form kick in, they really take hold of his game. Sock really hasn’t looked sharp since making the finals in Stockholm. Sock has never made it out of the third round in the Miami Masters.
These two have played seven times, and Raonic has won six of those meetings. The most recent match was in the 2014 Paris Masters. Sock’s only win over Raonic came in the 2013 Memphis Open. This will be the seventh time Raonic and Sock meet on hard court.
I like Sock’s game when he’s on, as he has the talent to compete with just about anyone. However, he’s in brutal form. A red hot Raonic should have his way here.
