Milos Raonic is on a roll. Not only did he recently make history as the first Canadian men’s singles player in the world top 10 after reaching the final of the Rogers Cup, he also gave Roger Federer a run for his money at the 2013 Australian Open. In a nutshell: The 22-year-old is proving he can keep up with the best of them.
“Stepping out on the court against those guys [Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal], it sort of stays there for the first five minutes, but then it fizzles away as soon as you realize it’s your job out there, and you just have to do anything you can to win,” he says. “I feel like these guys are great players, and they’re very well respected, but facing them is where I want to be, and that’s who I want to be competing against and who I want to be beating.”
In a dramatic turn, Raonic lost to Richard Gasquet on September 2.
