Veteran Tommy Haas, left, might have played his final match at Wimbledon, too. He lost in four sets to Canadian Milos Raonic on Canada Day. Photo by Ian Walton/Getty Images
Raonic now has an intriguing clash with Aussie Nick Kyrgios. The controversial Kyrgios didn't have much trouble in disposing of Juan Monaco. Photo by Shaun Botterill/Getty Images
Kyrgios and Tomic are bound to have plenty of support from the "Fanatics" on Friday. They are a set of fans who root for the Aussies. Photo by Shaun Botterill/Getty Images
