Roger has just won his 99th title in Basel and he has always stated that getting is 100th is definitely a target. The Swiss didn’t play at his very best in Basel, but still, he is able to win tournaments using his incredible experience and his body is holding pretty well.
Currently ranked no.21, Milos didn’t have a great season as he hasn’t managed to win a title and he was often struggling to go deep in tournaments. Before Paris, the Canadian lost his previous 4 matches (Tokyo, Shanghai, Antwerp, and Vienna) winning just 1 set in these matches. Raonic got to the second round in Bercy after defeating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-7 (4) 7-6 (5) 7-6 (5) in a match that lasted almost 3 hours.
