Milos Raonic, a Canadian professional tennis player, has left an indelible mark on the tennis world. 

Born on December 27, 1990, in Podgorica, Montenegro (formerly Titograd, SFR Yugoslavia), Raonic is of Serb heritage.

He is the first Canadian man in the Open Era to reach the semifinals of the Australian Open, the quarterfinals of the French Open, and the final of Wimbledon.

Having turned professional in September 2008, Raonic initially played both singles and doubles, participating in ITF Futures and ATP Challenger tournaments.

His hard work paid off when he reached the fourth round of the 2011 Australian Open as a qualifier.

Subsequently, he clinched his first ATP Tour title, earning him the 2011 ATP Newcomer of the Year award.

Raonic’s career highlights include a major final at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships and semifinal appearances at the 2014 Wimbledon Championships and the 2016 Australian Open.

These achievements propelled him to the highest ranking ever attained by a Canadian player, reaching world No. 3 in singles in November 2016.

Raonic has faced challenges despite his successes, particularly with calf and right leg injuries. These setbacks necessitated multiple hiatuses.

Milos Raonic Parents

Milos Raonic, the Canadian tennis superstar was born to Dusan and Vesna Raonic.

Raonic’s father holds a PhD in electrical engineering, while his mother possesses mechanical and computer engineering degrees.

It was during this time that Raonic’s passion for tennis emerged.

Seeking proper guidance, his father approached coach Casey Curtis at the Blackmore Tennis Club in neighboring Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Raonic’s parents drove him to practice sessions and tournaments and contributed in any way possible to facilitate their son’s training.
