Since 2013, Raonic has misplaced eight of the conferences in straight units, whereas eight of the 26 units between them have gone to tie-breaks, seven of these gained by Djokovic. In contrast to among the others on this checklist, the 29-year-old Canadian could get an opportunity to finish the undesirable report.
