With just 2 men left to battle it out on Sunday evening, The Wimbledon Championships 2016 draws to a close. But it’s not all over yet. Following the amazing semifinals, we at Essentially Sports preview the Men’s Final of this year’s Wimbledon Championships.
1. Raonic: The Dark Horse
Touted by many as a Future Tennis Superstar, Raonic finally seems to be coming of age. Having just become the first Canadian male to reach a Grand Slam final, Raonic would look forward to produce one final upset on the trot, when he faces World No.2 Andy Murray in the final. Few expected Raonic to make it to the final, for it is typical of a player of his nature to cause a few upsets here and there, and end up faltering in the final rounds.
Possessing a serve that is already one of the best in the modern game, Raonic has also worked on other aspects of his game in the past few years to become one of the most improved players on the tour.Having risen to prominence five years ago and having produced some sensational upsets ever since, Raonic will try to avenge the painful semi-final loss at the hands of Murray from this year’s Australian Open. The title is in his sight, but whether he’ll be able to complete the upset is the question that needs to be answered.
