Milos Raonic moves into the quarter-finals at If Stockholm Open

Milos Raonic moved through to the quarter-finals of the If Stockholm Open in Sweden on Wednesday, defeating Philipp Petzschner 6-3, 6-3.

Raonic showed no ill effects from his over two-hour opening match, completed after midnight local time, in taking out the German in straight sets.

The 20-year-old served extremely well, never facing a break point and losing just 10 points on his serve the entire match. The victory also represents a bit of revenge for an earlier loss, as he was defeated by Petzschner in the quarter-finals of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle, Germany before Wimbledon this year.

Raonic will play the winner of Grigor Dimitrov and No. 4 seed Juan Ignacio Chela in the next round. It will be his first meeting with either player.

This is Raonic’s fourth quarter-final appearance of the year.
