Raonic successfully defends his title in San Jose.

Image Detail

Milos Raonic successfully defended his title at the SAP Open in San Jose, beating Denis Istomin 7-6 (7/3) 6-2 in the showpiece final. The 21-year-old, who looked destined for a big year in 2011 after winning this event, lost his way owing to a hip injury suffered while falling at Wimbledon. But he is back to full fitness now and, on this showing, an even hotter prospect. He has only dropped two service games across the last two tournaments in San Jose, and his most lethal weapon was vital here. The first set was won on a tie-break, with Istomin missing a pass and then Raonic crunching a winning forehand. After that, the second set was a formality.

“I feel amazing. It’s definitely a different feeling from the first time last year,” Raonic said.
