Raonic tipped to beat Murray in Wimbledon final by former coach

The coach who set Milos Raonic on the road to the Wimbledon final has no doubt his former pupil will prove too strong for Andy Murray on Sunday.

It was a day just like any other in early 1999 when father Dusan, heeding the advice of his barber, took the eight-year-old Milos along to the Blackmore Tennis Club in Richmond Hill, Ontario, on the Toronto outskirts.

Located in a well-to-do neighbourhood, the club and its coach Casey Curtis had established a reputation for nurturing talent, and Dusan was willing to indulge his young son's wide-eyed enthusiasm for the sport.

The moment Curtis set eyes on Raonic that day was one of epiphany.

"Believe it or not, on the first day I turned to my assistant and said, 'I think that kid's going to be number one in the world one day'," Curtis said.

"The balls were flying all over the place but the boy could really swing a racket, and that's a huge asset. He had a tremendous passion for the game and he listened really well and learned very well.

"I actually believe that if there's one guy in the top five that Milos thinks he can handle, it's Andy. I think he beats Andy on Sunday."

Serena Williams inflicted the fastest ever demolition in a Wimbledon semi-final as the American took just 49 minutes to thrash Russia's Elena Vesnina.

Williams dismissed the world number 50 6-2 6-0 on Centre Court, needing two minutes fewer than the previous record when her sister Venus hammered Dinara Safina in 2009.

Venus or Germany's Angelique Kerber will be her opponent in Saturday's final and the top seed now stands just one win away from equalling Steffi Graf's Open era best 22 grand slam titles.

Doubles world number one Jamie Murray saw his Wimbledon title hopes shattered after a thrilling five-set quarter-final defeat.

The Scot and Brazilian partner Bruno Soares looked to be heading out in straight sets, but they saved three match points in the third and took it the distance before falling 6-4 6-4 6-7 (11/13) 6-7 (1/7) 10-8 to French opponents Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

A baying Court 18 crowd willed Murray and Soares to come through, and when the third seeds broke back after sliding 4-2 behind in the decider there was renewed hope.

But Murray had his serve broken in the 17th game, and after four hours and 30 minutes of a high-intensity contest, Roger-Vasselin slapped a volley through the British player's defences to secure the win.
