It appears that all systems are 'go' for the tournament in Tokyo next week. Raonic tweeted that he is looking forward to his return to competitive play at the Rakuten Japan Open.
So are we, Milos. So are we.
Raonic could potentially be seeded as high as No.8 if assuming there are no significant changes to the players list before the first round gets underway on Monday, October 3. Qualifying starts on Saturday, so it'll be a few days until we see the draw. Top players such as Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, and Mardy Fish will join Milos in Tokyo. On a side note, I'm sure Rafa is glad to see that Novak Djokovic will not be on the opposite side of the draw so there is no chance of losing to him in another final.
I'm still trying to come to terms with how Novak saved match points against Federer only to go on and beat Nadal in the US Open final. It's a crazy, mixed -p world out there. Hopefully having Raonic back on your will restore some balance to the force.
