A booming serve has helped Raonic become the highest-ranked Canadian man in history. Injuries have often derailed his momentum, but at his best the towering Canadian has proved he is one of the world’s best players. Nicknamed ‘Missile’, Raonic is making his Laver Cup debut with Team World in 2019.
Born in Montenegro, Raonic was three when his family relocated to Canada. He started playing tennis at age eight and idolized American Pete Sampras. He founded the Milos Raonic Foundation in 2012 to help disadvantaged youth. Raonic enjoys watching movies and spending time with friends. Former French player Fabrice Santoro is his current coach.
Soared to a career-high ranking of No.3 in 2016, the same year he became the first Canadian Grand Slam men’s singles finalist at Wimbledon. Raonic was the first 1990s-born player to win an ATP title, claiming his first in San Jose in 2011. He has now won eight ATP titles – all on hard court.
