* Raonic in form despite battling flu * To meet Frenchman Simon next (Adds details, quotes) By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE, Jan 19 (Reuters) - Battling a cold and loaded up with flu medicine, Milos Raonic showed his game was still in rude health as he eased past Gilles Muller 6-3 6-4 7-6(4) to reach the third round of the Australian Open on Thursday. The big-serving Canadian, a semi-finalist at Melbourne Park last year, was clinical on a sun-bathed Margaret Court Arena, firing 21 aces and 56 winners to despatch the Luxembourg left-hander in a tick under two hours. "I started feeling a little bit of a cough, but I didn't think much of it, two days ago after my match, right before bed," he told reporters after setting up a tough clash with the indefatigable Frenchman Gilles Simon.
