THEM’S THE BREAKS: Milos Raonic’s perfect serving start to the year has finally been broken.
The big-serving Canadian began the season by winning all 48 of his service games in four matches at Chennai, India _ the first player to win a title without dropping serve since Roger Federer did it in Halle in 2008. He served 76 aces and saved all 14 break points he faced.
Raonic also was perfect on serve in his first-round match at Melbourne Park. However, on Thursday, the streak ended when Germany’s Philipp Petzschner broke him twice in the second round. Raonic at least came away with a 6-4, 5-7, 6-2, 7-5 victory.
“It’s always tough to close out a match,” Raonic said. “Especially for me a big part of closing out matches is my serve. I don’t think in the first game I put in any first serves.”
