Budding superstar Milos Raonic got away from the tennis courts on Wednesday in Estoril to visit the historic city of Sintra which resides on the outskirts of Estoril.

“It was really amazing, I got to do some awesome things,” said a very well-spoken Raonic. “It was a lot of fun. I got to see the culture, it was amazing to see how the town was thriving.”

During the trip, Raonic met with the Mayor of Sintra, Dr Fernando Seara, and dined on some of the cities delicacies.

“To me, I find more amazement in the older cities that have really held up throughout all the years,” The Canadian No. 1 said.

“They really stick to tradition that they have stuck through hundreds and hundreds of years and I respect a lot and I think it’s a very special feeling when you get close to these type of areas.”

In his first Estoril tournament (also part of his first ATP season on red clay), Raonic is into the quarterfinals where he plays Gilles Simon later today (they have some rain).
