Athlete - Professional tennis player
Milos Raonic is leading a new era of top tennis talent. As Canada’s highest ranked player, Raonic has captured international attention for his record-breaking plays on the court. At the age of 23 he became the only Canadian tennis player ever to break into the top 10 of the ATP Singles Ranking, a career milestone that’s sure to be eclipsed many times over. Raonic’s passion for his sport and love of Canada makes him a welcome addition to the Goose People family.
Born in Montenegro in 1990, Raonic relocated to Toronto with his family in 1994. He started playing tennis at age nine and by 16 became one of Canada’s top juniors. Raonic qualified for his first Grand Slam event at the 2010 U.S. Open and gained notoriety in 2011 after rising from World No. 102 to No. 37 in one month, which led to winning the title of Newcomer of the Year at the 2011 ATP World Tour Awards.
While training and tournaments are always top of mind, Raonic considers his ability to inspire and help others a major source of motivation. In 2013, he launched the Milos Raonic Foundation, which helps children with disabilities engage in physical activity and contributes to prosthetics research. He also hopes that his achievements on the court will prompt more Canadians to play tennis—and given that he’s set to break even more records throughout the season, it’s a goal that’s certainly already becoming reality.
