Young Canadian Milos Raonic has been making some noise in tennis the last couple of weeks. To help put a face to the name, here are some video highlights from his match Thursday against Rafael Nadal in Tokyo.

Nadal won 64, 64 but was pushed by 6’5″ Raonic who looks to have a lot of upside in his game.

“It was a good win for me against a difficult player,” said Nadal. “He can become a very good player. I don’t know when, but he will be very close to the top positions. I was under big pressure to break his serve, I did very well to convert two out of two break points.”

Raonic is ranked 200 in the world but a year from now could very well be in the Top 50.

“I was putting too much pressure on myself at the beginning,” Raonic said. “I was overplaying a bit, not mixing up. I was a bit tight and whenever I am tight I struggle with my serve. Then I relaxed and had opportunities in the second set. My game is getting better and my goals are getting higher. I have more and more motivation to work harder.”

Raonic was born in Podgorica, Montenegro and moved to Toronto at age 3.

The videos I’ve seen from Japan have not been very good, so thanks for these. Milos will be a guy to watch. Seems so nice.
