On playing Raonic, Rafa says: “He’s an opponent that you don’t want to play against because you play under a lot of pressure, every point. Every point has a lot of value. You cannot lose your concentration for one moment with your serve. It will be a very tough match. I know I need to be at my 100 per cent to have any chance.”
Rafa has played the 24-year-old five times before and leads the series 5-0. Here are the matches they have played against each other:
