Milos Raonic is in Halle this week preparing for what could be a breakout run at Wimbledon later this month. Raonic spoke with the ATP assessing his game and chances in Halle and at Wimbledon.
Raonic already won his first two matches in Germany. If No. 2 seed Roger Federer beats Florian Mayer tomorrow the Swiss will meet Milos in the quarterfinals on Friday.
“I’m just trying to gain experience on this surface,” said Raonic. “Last year I felt I played really well leading into Wimbledon before that unfortunate incident… I feel this should be a good surface for me; it should suit my game and I’m trying to make the most of it.
“It’s a benchmark to see where I am. I feel I am a much better player than last year. It gives me confidence to play this well so early in the tournament, just having come off clay.”
Last year Raonic injured his hip during the second round at Wimbledon.
