Milos Raonic

This is going to be an extremely tight match between both players, and it can be a 3 setter as both players play very long and draining sets.

Humbert will know that he did cruise through his second round match, but this will more than not likely be the case in this third round match against Milos Raonic. 

As for Raonic, as always his serve will be the key and he would want to set Humbert up and finish with a big forehand. Humbert will have to come out here ready to fight for every single point if he is to get anything out of this match. Expect Raonic to win a tight match.

Prediction: Raonic to win in three sets.
