Milos Raonic, born December 27, 1990, is a Canadian professional tennis player, born in Montenegro (then Yugoslavia) of ethnic Montenegrin origin, who currently resides in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Raonic moved to Canada with his family at the age of 3. He is Canada's highest ATP ranked male singles player since computer rankings began in 1973, with a current career-high ranking of World No. 13. He qualified for his first grand slam event at the 2010 U.S. Open. In 2011 he rose from World No. 152 to No. 37 in a month, after he reached the fourth round of the Australian Open and won his first ATP title at the 2011 SAP Open. Raonic, who prefers to play on hard courts, plays an all-court game but is most notable for his serve, which is powerful and accurate. Since late 2010 he has been coached by former Spanish pro player Galo Blanco in Barcelona. Statistically, his serve is one of the strongest on the tour. In 2012, he has served more aces per match and won a higher percentage of service games than any other player.
