Milos Raonic

Milos Raonic was among the first players to join Tennis Canada’s National Training Centre in Montreal when it opened in 2007. A year later he turned pro, having completed high school in just two years, through a combination of classroom and online studies. In 2011 Raonic became the first Canadian to win an ATP singles title since 1995, taking the SAP Open. He was voted ATP Newcomer of the Year by his fellow players. In 2012, Raonic earned two more ATP titles and made his Olympic debut, where he lost in the second round in an epic showdown with Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Their three hour 57 minute match set a record for most games played (66) in a three-set Olympic match and their 48-game third set (won 25-23 by Tsonga) was also a new high. He won two more titles in 2013, including his third straight SAP Open, and reached the final of the Rogers Cup (Masters 1000 series) in Montreal. Always known for his high-powered serve, which has topped 155 mph, Raonic had some major breakthroughs in 2014, winning his first 500 series title and advancing to his first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the French Open, followed by his first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon. He won the Lionel Conacher Award for the second straight year as Canadian male athlete of the year. Raonic reached a career-high ATP ranking of 4th in May 2015. He advanced to his second Grand Slam semifinal at the 2016 Australian Open.
