Table Set for Likely Raonic-Djokovic Faceoff at Rogers Cup
TORONTO — Novak Djokovic didn’t watch it.
Milos Raonic has it on instant replay, both figuratively and literally.
The tennis foes, on a collision course to meet later this week at the Rogers Cup, were talking about their recent Wimbledon tournaments, and the aftermath of their sport’s most prestigious event.
Djokovic, of course, had his dreams of a calendar-year Grand Slam and a fourth Wimbledon title dashed earlier this month, falling early to American Sam Querrey.
On Sunday, the world No. 1 said he didn’t watch the final at the All England Club. No use torturing himself. On to the next thing.
Raonic, who played in that final, losing to new nemesis Andy Murray, said he hasn’t gone into the video room to watch his semifinal victory over Roger Federer. But he has rewatched and relived his straight-sets defeat against Murray on more than one occasion.
